       Liverpool, my hometown, is a unique city.It is so unique that in 2004 it became a World Heritage (遗产) Site.

       I recently returned to my home city and my first stop was at a museum on the River Mersey.Blanketed in mist (薄雾), Victorian architecture rose from the banks of the river, responded to the sounds of sea-birds, and appeared unbelievably charming.When I headed toward the centre, I found myself surrounded by buildings that mirror the best palaces of Europe.It is not hard to imagine why, on first seeing the city, most visitors would be overpowered by the beauty of the noble buildings, which are solid signs of Liverpool’s history.

       As if stress its cultural role, Liverpool has more museums and galleries (美术馆) than most cities in Britain.At Walker Art Gallery, I was told that it has best collections of Victorian paintings in the world, and is the home of modern art in the north of England.However, culture is more than galleries.Liverpool offers many music events.As Britain’s No.1 music city, it has the biggest city music festival in Europe, and its musicians are famous all over the world.Liverpool is also well-known for its football and other sports events.Every year, the Mersey River Festival attracts thousands of visitors, madding the city a place of wonder.

       As you would expect from such a city, there are restaurants serving food from around the world.When my trip was about to complete, I chose to rest my legs in Liverpool’s famous Philharmonic pub (酒馆).It is a monument to perfection, and a heritage attraction itself.

       Being a World Heritage Site, my home city is certainly a place of “outstanding universal value”.It is a treasure house with plenty of secrets for the world to explore.

       Sports can help you keep fit and get in touch with nature.However, whether you are on the mountains, in the waves, or on the grassland, you should be aware that your sport of choice might have great influence on the environment.

       Some sports are resource-hungry.Golf, as you may know, eats up not only large areas of countryside, but also tons of water.Besides, all sorts of chemicals and huge amounts of energy are used to keep its courses (球场) in good condition.This causes major environmental effects.For example, in the dry regions of Portugal and Spain, golf is often held responsible for serious water shortage in some local areas.

       There are many environment-friendly sports.Power walking is one of them that you could take up today.You don’t need any special equipment except a good pair of shoes; and you don’t have to worry about resources and your purse.Simple and free, power walking can also keep you fit.If you walk regularly, it will be good for your heart and bones.Experts say that 20 minutes of power walking daily can make you feel less anxious, sleep well and have better weight control.

       Whatever sport you take up, you can make it greener by using environment-friendly equipment and buying products made from recycled materials.But the final goal should be “green gyms”.They are better replacements for traditional health clubs and modern sports centers.Members of green gyms play sports outdoors, in the countryside or other open spaces.There is no special requirement for you to start your membership.And best of all, it’s free.

1.Which of the following is the author most probably in favor of?

       A.Cycling around a lake.              B.Motor racing in the desert.

How to Be a Winner

Sir Steven Redgrave

Winner of 5 Olympic Gold Medals

       “In 1997 I was found to have developed diabetes (糖尿病) .Believing my career (职业生涯)was over, I felt extremely low.Then one of the specialists said there was no reason why I should stop training and competing.That was it----the encouragement I needed.I could still be a winner if I believed in myself.I am not saying that it isn’t difficult sometimes.But I wanted to prove to myself that I wasn’t finished yet.Nothing is to stand in my way.”

Karen Pickering

Swimming World Champion

       “I swim 4 hours a day, 6 days a week.I manage that sort of workload by putting it on top of my diary.This is the key to success—you can’t follow a career in any field without being well-organized.List what you believe you can achieve.“Trust yourself, write down your goals for the day, however small they are, and you’ll be a step closer to achieving them.”

Kirsten Best

Poet Writer

       “When things are getting hard, a voice inside my head tells me that I can’t achieve something.Then, there are other distractions, such as family or hobbies.The key is to concentrate.When I feel tense, it helps a lot to repeat words such as ‘calm’, ‘peace’ or ‘focus’, either out loud or silently in my mind.It makes me feel more in control and increases my confidence.This is a habit that can become second nature quite easily and is a powerful psychological (心理的) tool.”
