Look closely at your hands-are they clean? It doesn’t matter how many times you wash your hands. They’re still crowded with microbes, which are also called germs or bacteria. Microbes are everywhere. But don’t worry-most microbes don’t harm you, and many actually help you stay alive.
Now, scientists say the microbes that live on our hands could be useful in a surprising way: fighting crime.
When police visit the scene of the crime, they often look for fingerprints to try to identify the criminal. But according to a recent study, investigators could even use microbes to help break a criminal case.
Everyone has his or her own set of microbes that live on their hands, according to scientists at the University of Colorado. That means a mix of different kinds of microbes on everyone’s hand is unique-much like one’s fingerprint.
The scientists wanted to know whether the microbe mix could be used as a new kind of fingerprint-especially in a crime scene where fingerprints might be hard to find. And policemen use forensics such as studying fingerprints to identify the criminal.
“Microbe fingerprints are harder to hide,” said Noah Fierer, one of the scientists. “You can’t sterilize a surface just by wiping it off.”
His team compared the bacteria on the hands of 273 people to the bacteria found on each person’s computer keyboard. For the study, the keyboard had been used only by the people who were being tested. The study showed that the mix of microbes from each person’s hands matched the mix of microbes on that person’s keyboard. The scientists were easily able to tell the 273 people apart-just by looking at their keyboards.
But there are a lot more than 273 criminals. Other scientists wonder whether the microbe fingerprint can nearly be that useful.
Fierer agrees that scientists have a lot more work to do before the microbe fingerprint will be a useful tool.
41. According to the passage, microbes on people hands _____.
A. do more harm than good B. are easy to get rid of
C. are almost the same D. might help solve crimes
42. The underlined word “forensics” in Paragraph 5 probably refers to _____.
A. a new kind of fingerprint B. the scientific test used by police
C. a kind of bacteria in people’s hands D. a kind of newly invented keyboard
43. What did Fierer’s team find through the study?
A. They could tell who had used which computer
B. They found the criminal among the 273 people
C. Computer keyboard couldn’t help people’s microbe fingerprints
D. People’s hands could be identified by the keyboards they used
44. We can learn from the passage that _____.
A. your microbe will give you away
B. scientists will reach a clear conclusion soon
C. many scientists think microbe fingerprint useless
D. the microbe fingerprint has been used in many cases
45. The passage is mainly about _____.

You spent lots of time and money shopping online during the past year and somehow your lost track of both.
That’s why when you received their annual statement from Alipay (支付宝), the Chinese third-party online payment platform, you probably got a big surprise.
Chen Si, 23, a senior in Literature of Film and TV at Shandong University of Arts, shared her feeling, ‘Can’t bear to look at it”.
“Many micro-blogget said they would rather ‘cut their hands off’ after, seeing how every cent of their money was spent online shopping last year. I’m one of them,” Chen said.
Last year, Chen spent about 10,000 yuan on Taobao—more than half of living expenses. Chen, Who didn’t buy any expensive items online, had no idea where her money went before seeing the statement.
While many like Chen regret their unreasonable spending, some are making a big deal out of how little they spent. Zhu Siwei, 25, an accountant from Jinhua, Zhejiang Province, spent a total of 489 yuan last year, according to her Alipay statement. Since she posted her consumption status on Sina Weibo, she’s been asked by many fellow micro-bloggers how to save money.
“I am usually busy with work and don’t have that much time for online shopping. I spend most of my money on my personal interests, such as reading books and listening to CDs.” Zhu said.
As Ma Ywt, the CEO of Alibaba.com, an online shopping website, once said: “Shopping online is not a business style or technology, but a way of life.”
An annual statement reflects a person’s consumption habits and lifestyle. But it’s also a warning that, while online shopping provides us with convenience and a refreshing way of living, we should be cautious about our consumption especially when it comes to online shopping where money is just a number.

Before going outside in the morning, many of us check a window thermometer(温度计)for the temperature. This helps us decide what to wear. __56__ We want our food to be a certain coldness in the refrigerator. We want it a certain hotness in the oven(烤箱). If we don’t feel well, we use a thermometer to see if we have a fever. We keep our rooms a certain warmth in the winter and a certain coolness in the summer.
Not all the thermometers use the same system to measure temperature. We use a system called the Fahrenheit (华氏)scale. But most other countries use the Centigrade (摄氏) scale. Both systems use the freezing and boiling points of water as their guide. __57__
The most common kind of thermometer is made with mercury(水银)inside a clear glass tube. As mercury (or any other liquid) becomes hot, it expands. As it gets colder, it contracts(收缩). That is why on hot days the mercury line is high in the glass tube. __58__
First, take a clear glass juice bottle that has a cap; fill the bottle with colored water. Tap a hole in the center of the cap using a hammer and thick nail. Put the cap on the jar. Then stick a plastic straw(吸管) through the nail hole.
Finally, place a white card on the outside of the bottle and behind the straw. Now you can see the water level easily.
As the temperature goes down, the water will contract, and the level in the straw will come down. Perhaps you will want to keep a record of the water level in the straw each morning for a week.
A. We use and depend on thermometers to measure the temperature of many other things in our daily lives.
B. Thermometers measure temperature by using materials that change in the same way when they are heated or cooled.
C. Now that you know this rule you can make a thermometer of your own that will work.
D. The water will rise in the straw. As the temperature of the air goes up, the water will expand and rise even higher.
E. They label these in different ways. On the Fahrenheit scale water freezes at 32 degrees and boils at 212 degrees. On the Celsius scale water freezes at 0 degrees and boils at 100 degrees.
F. Next, take wax(石蜡) (you may use an old candle if you have one) and melt some of it right where the straw is stuck into the cap to seal (把……粘住) them together.
G. People use thermometers which are made by themselves when travelling around the world.
