    Michael Phelps has already been considered by some as the greatest all-around competitor in the history of his sport. At the 2004 U.S. Trials, Phelps qualified for Athens in six individual events across every possible stroke. He finally earned five titles of Olympic champion. Should Phelps match Mark Spitz’s record in Athens or Beijing in 2008, he will earn a $1 million bonus from his sponsor. Michael Phelps was born to June 30, 1985. His father was a good athlete, and passed his ability on to his kids.

  Michael’s coach told Michaelc's mother that her son was a rare talent. Long-limbed with big hands and feet, he took to instruction very well, loved to work hard and never seemed nervous is competition. By all accounts, his frame is perfect for a swimmer. His big hands and feet are like paddles in the water. The butterfly is his signature stroke, but he’s shown the ability to dominate in any event.

  In 1999, Michael broke a record in the 200-meter butterfly for the 20-year-old age group at the Junior Nationals. At 15, Michael became the youngest swimmer to compete Sydney Olympics for the U.S.in 68 years. In an astonishing performance, he medaled six times and set five world records. Michael won the 200-meter butterfly with a new world mark, and also turned in record times in the 100-meter butterfly and 200-meter individual medley (混合泳)—doing so on the same day, which was a first in swimming history.

  Outside of his swimming career,Michael was a normal teenager.He didn't like getting out of the bed in the morning; but refused to slow down once his day began.Michael has his sights set on more than Olympic glory. He wants to transform his sport the way other great athletes like Michael Jordan and Tiger Woods have.

  Passage Two

  Most personnel managers agree that job interviews are one of the least objective recruitment methods.But the advantages of testing are not going to change the attraction of the interview to employers. The appeal of the interview has everything to do with the human factor.

  Most people believe that they are a reasonable judge of character and trust their instinctive feeling. We might use some kind of test to aid the selection process, but we usually pick a candidate who interviews well, has good qualifications and impressive work record.

  But suppose the candidate lies or is less than completely honest."This can be a serious problem for employers", explains Alan Conrad, Chief Executive at Optimus Recruitment. "The most difficult liars to find are those who tell half-truths rather than complete lies."Research shows that up to 75 percent of resumes are inaccurate on purpose. The most common practice is omission.

  Interviewer should therefore concentrate on areas of uncertainly such as gaps between periods of employment and job descriptions that seem strange. "Focusing on these areas will force candidates to tell the truth or become increasingly dishonest. This is usually when people signal their anxiety by their body language. Sweat on the upper lip, false smiles and nervous hand movements all indicate discomfort."

  Conrad does not suggest an aggressive policy-style interview technique , but insists that close inspection of a resume is absolutely essential. Only by asking the right questions can you confirm the suitability of the candidate or put pressure on those who are being less than completely honest.

  6. The best title of this passage can be ___________.

   A. How to Catch Out the Dishonest Candidate B. How to Find a Job by Tricks

   C. Disadvantages of Job Interviews D. Advantages of Job Interviews

  7. The liars hard to recognize are those who tell___________.

   A. complete truths B. complete lies C. partial truths D. mainly truths

  8. How were the job applicants able to lie without being detected?

   A. By leaving out some necessary information. B. By providing more information than needed.

   C. By using their body language. D. By telling some unbelievable lies.

  9. In order to pick up a qualified and an honest candidate, Conrad suggests that we _____.

   A. examine the resumes carefully B. inspect the candidates aggressively

   C. correct the resumes intentionally D. compare one’s resume with others’

  10. What is the author’s attitude towards job interviews?

   A. Most objective B. Too subjective C. Suspicious D. Credulous.
