His coughing stopped my thinking .What was left to say ?How could I say 53 to the person who taught me everything?

A Japanese toy maker says that they’ve developed a gadget（小器具）that translates dog barks （吠）into human languages and plan to begin selling the gadgets—under the name of Bowlingual—in the US pet stores and present shops this summer.
People laughed when the Japanese toy maker Takara company made the world’s first dog-human translation machine last year .But about 300,000 of them have been sold since it was on sale in Japan last year .Far bigger sales will be expected once an English language translation machine for dogs comes to America in August .The United States is home to about 67 million dogs ,more than six times the number in Japan.
“We know that the Americans love their dogs so much ,so we don’t think they’ll mind spending $ 120 on this gadget”, the Takara marketing manager said before the journalists at a meeting in Atlanta. Bowlingual ,one of US Time magazine’s coolest inventions of 2002, has two parts .A microphone is tied to the dog’s collar（项圈）and sends out sound information to the gadget held by the owner .Then the translation is done in the gadget by a database （数据库）with every kind of barks .Those barks show six feelings—happiness, sadness ,disappointment ,anger ,
declaration and desire .Each of the feelings is then translated into words like “Let’s play.” “Look at me !” or “Spend more time with me.”
Takara says it has spent millions of dollars developing the gadget .One thing that seems certain is that the markets for animal translation machines will probably be a dog’s world since Takara has no plans to develop such a gadget for cats . “They are too unpredictable （反复无常） ,”the marketing manager said.
67．The first three paragraphs of the passage mainly tell us that Bowlingual .
A．was invented in Japan B．has developed quickly
C．will be sold in America D．sells well for its price
68．The underlined word “they” in the last sentence refers to .

C．In the summer of 2002. D．In the autumn of 2003.
70．From the passage ,we can see that Takara is the sale of its new gadget in the US.
A．proud of B．pleased with C．confident of D．worried about

Guangzhou Zoo is the largest one in our city. The ticket for an adult is 80 yuan. The children over 1.20 m in height can pay only half of it, and the ones under 1.20 m can enter the zoo for free. The zoo opens from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm on weekdays and from 8:00 am to 5:30 pm on weekends.
By the way, while visiting the zoo, you’d better not feed the animals with the food you take. And don’t get too close to or even touch the animals. That would be very dangerous . Please keep the zoo clean as well .
Wish you a good time !

Welcome to Guide Dogs Training Center, boys and girls! First let me tell you something about guide dogs.
In 1918 a doctor and his pet dog walked with a soldier who was blind. The doctor went in the hospital for a short time. When he came out, he saw his pet had guided the soldier on the other side of the hospital yard safely. So he taught a dog to guide a person and it worked out well. Germany helped start a program to teach dogs to be guides.
Dorothy, an American woman, went to Germany to find out about the guide dogs. When she came back to the United States, she wrote it for a magazine. Soon more people knew of the guide dogs.
The best dogs for the job are clever and fit. It takes more than two years to train a little dog to be a guide dog. When the dog is 14 months old, it learns many instructions. Then the owner and the dog meet, and they practice for four weeks.
Have I made myself clear? OK, let’s go on visiting.
