Hayao Miyazaki was born in Tokyo on January 5, 1941. As a boy, he liked to read and draw cartoons. After graduating from university in 1963, Miyazaki joined the Toei Animation (动画片制作) Company. At Toei, he worked on many animated movies, like the famous Puss in Boots. In 1984, he made Nausicaa of the Valley of Wind, which was based on a comic book he wrote. Because this movie was so successful, Miyazaki was able to start his own animation company, Studio Ghibli.

Tropical cyclones (热带旋风) are called typhoons (台风) in Asia, and hurricanes (飓风) in North and South America. These storms go around like a wheel(轮子) turning to the left. They have wind speeds of 60 kph or more. They can be very destructive (毁灭性的). In the United States, the Tropical Prediction Centre in Miami, Florida, looks out for hurricanes.
When scientists discover a true hurricane, they give it a name. They can use either a man"s or woman"s name. Why should hurricanes have names? The names make it easier for people to keep up with information about a hurricane and its dangers.

The World Meteorological Organization (WMO), an international weather group, decides what names will be used. The WMO makes six lists (列表) of names, using the English alphabet. Each list is used for one year. When a hurricane happens, it gets the next name on the list for that year. For example, the first hurricane of the year might have the name Abel, while the second one could be Betty. The name lists do not include (包含) names beginning with the letters O, U, X, Y, and Z, since there are few names that begin with these letters. Asian countries use a different list. This list has a few personal names, but most of the names are of flowers, animals and trees.

56. Why should hurricans have names?

A. It sounds interesting.

B. The names help people get information about a hurricane.

C. The names are only for the WMO.

D. It is traditional.

57. _________ decides what names will be used for hurricanes.

A. The Tropical Prediction Centre B. A scientist

C. The WMO D. Abel

58. Which name would a hurricane never have?

A. Rita. B. Veronica. C. William. D. Yanni.

59. The Fifth hurricane of 2010 might have the name ________.

A. Diana. B. Darren. C. Eric. D. Connie.

60. Asian countries name typhoons after ________.

A. books and buildings B. flowers and animals

C. mountains and rivers D. oceans and rivers

DJs (disc jockeys) are the people who play and present music on the radio, or in a nightclub. A VJ (video jockey) is a person who introduces music videos on television.

VJs were first seen on television in the early 1980s when MTV went on the air. As MTV became popular and the audience for music videos increased, different kinds of music video channels started broadcasting. By the 1990s, international music video channels like Channel V in Asia and VIVA in Eu
