❶The International Labor Organization says the number of people without jobs is increasing. In its latest update on global employment trends, the agency says projections of the number of unemployed people this year range from 210 million to nearly 240 million people. The report warns that 200 million poor workersare at risk of joining the ranks of people living on less than 2 dollars per day in the past three years. ❷The director general of the International Labor Organization Juan Somavia notes that some countries have taken measures to address the effects of the global crisis.
However,he points out that many countries have not done so. And based on past experiences, it takes four to five years after economic recovery for unemployment to return to pre-crisis levels. Mr. Somavia says the International Labor Organization is proposing a global jobs' agreement to deal with unemployment. It's key objective is to play so the center of recovery efforts,measures that would generate high levels of employment and provide basic social protection for the most vulnerable.
What is the news report mainly about?
第一道题是主旨大意题，我们课上讲过新闻题开头部分很重要，而本道题第一句话就给出了这篇新闻的主旨。这句话重点在从句部分， the number of people without jobs is increasing 失业人数增加，对应选项中C项的 Rising unemployment，而这个国际组织international也暗示了是世界范围的失业人数。所以答案选C。
What does, Juan Somavia, the director general of the International Labor Organization say?
原文中提到某人说的话，说一部分国家开始处理全球危机带来的影响，又一个转折，however，很多国家没这么做。结合这两句，和我们选项中的C项Few countries have realized the seriousness of the current crisis同义替换。听完问题便可确认此答案。

What are big fast food chains in New York City require to do according to the new rule?
本道题比较简单，属于原文重现，原文中提到 post calorie counts right on the menu，对应了选项中的B) Put calorie information on the menu，将卡路里信息写在菜单上。故答案为B。
What would happen to big restaurant chains that violate the new rule?
看四个选项提到了they,那么问题很有可能和原文中多次提到的快餐连锁有关，原文最后一句话提到快餐连锁如不公布热量信息将会被处以200美元的罚金，及对应选项中的be fined“被罚款”这个信息，答案为A) They will be fined.
5 Almost all companies recognize the importance of innovation today. But not many are able to integrate innovation into their business.
A commentary in the Shanghai Daily points out that innovation doesn't mean piles of documents. It is something more practical. 6 The article says many people tend to assume that innovation just means creating something new, but actually it's more than that. It's an attitude of doing things. A company should find ways to innovate not just in products but also in functions, business models and processes.
7 The article cites the global giant Procter & Gamble as an example, saying a real innovative company should develop an innovation culture and use it as a primary tool for success. Procter & Gamble has a “Corporate Innovation Fund” which offers big rewards for high-risk ideas that succeed. It also has a special innovation facility for its employees. Sometimes its employees are released from their daily jobs for weeks and spend their time interacting in the innovation facility instead. In conclusion, the article says innovative ideas alone do not ensure success. It's pointless unless there is a repeatable process in place to turn inspiration into financial performance.
What is the problem with many companies according to the news report?
本文中一直提到的词是innovation”创新”,文中第一句话就提到not many are able to integrate innovation into their business，没有多少公司能够将创新整合进自己的商业模式上，原文重现对应到我们的选项D) Failure to integrate innovation into their business.
What do many people tend to think of innovation?
原文中借article之口提出很多人对创新的看法是innovation just means creating something new 创新就是创造新东西，接着又提到说创新远不止这些。而确认问题是大部分人的观点，故选择和原文同义替换的一个表达B) It is the creation of something new. 作为正确答案。
What does the company Procter & Gamble owe its success to?
本题作为一个举例信息在原文中被提到，原文直接说到一个名词叫做innovation culture创新文化，接着说use it as a primary tool for success 把他作为走向成功的主要方式。由此可知问题的答案应为C) Its innovation culture.。
