If a stranger offered you money to keep a suitcase in your spare room，would you accept? How about the other way round：if you had too many belongings，would you consider trusting someone you met online with their safekeeping? Anthony Paine believed enough of us would answer“yes”to these questions to launch his own startup(新興公司)，Stashbee．His business links people with space to those who need it．
And it's just one player in the booming“sharing economy”，an industry that relies on people renting out things like their beds，bikes and even parking spaces．Airbnb，a company valued at 200bn RMB，provides a platform for those renting property short-term．DogVacay pairs holidaymaking pet owners with pet-friendly hosts，and aims to be profitable by 2017．
All their business models revolve around one simple word：trust．So，how does Stashbee measure up? BBC journalist Dougal Shaw decided to try it out for himself．He had some odds and ends to store while renovating his ho use，and met a host through the site who could keep them for 475 RMB for two months．All relatively smooth and painless．
Heavyweights(行業巨頭)in the traditional storage industry，such as Big Yenow and Access，aren’t convinced．A representative from Access told Shaw he was skeptical about storing with“amateurs”．He considered 24／7(全天候)access to the items and better security as the main advantages of his se rvice.
Stashbee agree that dealing with security concerns is important，but say business success depends more on people overcoming a distrust of strangers we’ve been taught since childhood. They aren’t alone．Companies such as Costockage，Roost and Spacer all run similar storage businesses，and are all relying on a shift in consumer attitudes．
And the concept of social storage doesn’t stop there．CityStasher believe there’s a gap in the market for those who want to store things for extremely short periods of time．
Would you try it out? It’s a question of trust．
29．The author put forward two questions at the beginning of the text to__________.

B．carry out a survey among readers
C．start a conversation among readers
D．draw readers attention to the topic

C．Analyzing some data． D．Exchanging his belongings.

C．Cost． D．Professional knowledge．
32．What can we infer from the text?
A．Trust is not well built in childhood education．
B．The new startup isn’t concerned about security．
C．No company follows the business model of Stashbee．
D．Consumer attitudes have changed greatly over time．
The“Take In”restaurant in Helsinki，Finland，is currently in the news for its ingenious(有獨創性)service．Instead of cooking the meals in its own kitchen—which doesn’t exist—it allows customers to order various dishes from a selection of 20 other restaurants in the city．
Sponsored by American Express and Wolt，a popular food delivery app，Take In is a pop-up restaurant that opened at the beginning of November 2016，and will run through May 2，this year.
As you’ve probably already guessed，the name“Take In”is a clever play on words like take—out．The whole point of ordering take-out is to avoid going to a restaurant，and if you’re going to dress up to go out，you might as well go straight to your favorite restaurant instead of ordering food from it somewhere else．But here’s the idea behind it—when you go out with a group of friends and you can’t decide where to go for dinner，because everyone wants to order something else，Take In is the perfect solution．
“We want to be a living room in the city，”a Wolt spokesperson told Monocle magazine．“We all know what it’s like you’re about to go out for dinner with a big group of friends．Everyone wants to order what they like．What are you going to do? Well，the answer in Helsinki right now is you come to Take In because you can do all of those things in the same place．”
Customers are more than welcome to stick to the selection of drinks available at the bar．but if they want to try the“take in”experience，all they have to do is use the Wolt app，just as they would from the comfort of their own homes．Once they order and pay for their meals，all they have to do is wait for someone to deliver it to the pop-up restaurant．
33．What does the text mainly tell about?
A．American Express and Wolt．
B．The“Take In”restaurant in Helsinki．
C．The way to order“take-out”．
D．A world—wide food service．
34．Why is the“Take In”restaurant popular with people?
A．It can satisfy the taste of different people．
B．People can pay less money.
C．People can get together with best friends．
D．It can cook different meals．
35．What do we know about the“Take In”restaurant?
A．It has been run for more than two years．
B．It will replace“Take out”restaurants soon．
C．You should use the Wolt app．
D．You can enjoy t he service in your own living-room．
Is it necessary to learn when we are 50s，60s or even 70s?Most people consider when they get retired，they are supposed to be completely laidback，do something fun，or hang around． 36 It’s particularly important to the elderly．
Through learning，we know how to think，how to memorize，how to ask questions and even how to interact with others．According to a study，while we are learning，“the brain creates neural(神經)pathways”that make us smarter． 37 The more we learn，the mote new neural pathways develop in our brains．
When it comes to learning，it doesn’t mean we must load ourselves with lots of knowledge．What we need to do is just learn something we like day in and day out． 38 Everyone learns from bottom to up．If we have an interest to learn，that desire will naturally push us to move forward．
As we feel worn out from learning，don’t be discouraged． 39 An old saying goes,“Birds of a feather fly together．”As long as we have partners to learn all together，our learning excitement will come alive again．On the contrary，if we don’t learn，and choose to distance ourselves from other，we might be getting dumb，and slow；eventually，we lose energy，and life passion．Instead of being bored，dumb，why don’t we keep learning?
40 More importantly，learning explores our life horizon，helps us build up our confidence；gradually，it leads us to a way of finding a sense of value and achievement in the process of learning journey．
A．It’s never too old to learn．
B．Don’t worry if we cannot learn well．
C．You should set a high learning target．
D．Learning makes us understand how potential we are．
E．Look for a partner who has the same common interest as you do．
F．In other words，our brains are active as we learn something new．
G．However，the truth is that learning makes us energetic，and self-fulfilled．
When I was a boy we used to live across the road from a big hill．When snow would 41 ，my two brothers would grab their sleds(雪橇)and 42 over to the hill for a day of fun．I remember watching them with 43 because I was too small to go sledding．Finally，one winter I was thought 44 enough and joined my brothers as they 45 their sleds up the long hill and prepared to ride down it．
The first few trips I rode with one of my brothers and had the 46 of my life．It was so exciting 47 the wind whip across my face as I flew down the hillside．Near the end of the day I was overjoyed too when my oldest brother decided to let me try riding the sled all 48 ．I climbed on it full of 49 and laid on my stomach．Then with one big 50 my brother sent me zooming down the 51 hillside．I was doing pretty well too 52 I hit an old stump(樹樁)hidden by the snow and went off 53 ，straight towards one of those big Oak trees．At the last possible second I rolled off and the sled crashed into the 54 ．I could hear my b rothers running down the hill 55 ，“You have to steer(掌舵)!You have to steer!”
56 ，that wasn’t the last time I failed to steer when some 57 knocked me off course in my life．Many times problems，troubles，and my own failings have sent me crashing into the trees of 58，frustration，and despair．I am learning that life isn’t always 59 sledding．It’s up to me to steer 60 ．
