  Insomnia is the inability to fall asleep or sleep restfully. It is a problem to nearly everyone at some time .A person may be awake for an hour in the middle of the night and then , next morning, feel that he hardly sleep all night Normally, worry about not getting enough sleep is the worst aspect of most insomnia. If insomnia is recurrent, however, it is important to find its causes and try to correct them, with the help of a doctor if necessary.

  Any of a large number of simple factors may take it difficult for someone to fall asleep or remain asleep. His matters may be too soft or too hard. If there are too many blankets on a hot night, he may be too warm; if the bedclothes are too light he may feel cold during the night. If it is not dark enough, or too noisy, this may cause difficulty in sleeping. Eating shortly before going to bed also be responsible for insomnia. Stimulating drinks, such as tea or coffee, can also keep people awake.

  Inability to fall asleep is sometimes a symptom of emotional or mental disorders. Insomnia may also be caused by pain and, very rarely, it can be a symptom of a physical disease.

  The cause of insomnia may be easy to correct. The sufferer should check the mattress, bedclothes and bedroom temperature, and make any necessary changes. An eye mask keeps out the night and ear-plugs shut out sound. He should relax for an hour or two before bedtime, perhaps by reading a book; watching TV, or taking a warm bath. If he wakes during the night he should try turning on the light and reading for a while. Taking warm milk and a biscuit or two may be helpful. Above all, he should try not to worry about sleeplessness when someone is tied enough he nearly always falls asleep.

  If necessary, a doctor may prescribe tranquillisers or sleeping pills. Take only the dosage he prescribes; any more is dangerous.

  4. According to the writer, insomnia is ______.

  Unless we spend money to spot and prevent asteroids (小行星) now,one might crash into Earth and destroy life as we know it,say some scientists.?

  Asteroids are bigger versions of the meteoroids(流星)that race across the night sky. Most orbit the sun far from Earth and don't threaten us. But there are also thousands whose orbits put them on a collision course with Earth.?

  Buy $ 50 million worth of new telescopes right now. Then spend $ 10 million a year for the next 25 years to locate most of the space rocks. By the time we spot a fatal one,the scientists say,we'll have a way to change its course.?

  Some scientists favor pushing asteroids off course with nuclear weapons. But the cost wouldn't be cheap.?

  Is it worth it? Two things experts consider when judging any risk are: 1) How likely the event is; and 2) How bad the consequences if the event occurs. Experts think an asteroid big enough to destroy lots of life might strike Earth once every 500,000 years. Sounds pretty rare-but if one did fall,it would be the end of the world. “If we don't take care of these big asteroids,they'll take care of us,”says one scientist. “It's that simple.”?

  The cure,though,might be worse than the disease. Do we really want fleets of nuclear weapons sitting around on Earth? “The world has less to fear from doomsday(毁灭性的) rocks than from a great nuclear fleet set against them,” said a New York Times article.

  8. What does the passage say about asteroids and meteoroids?

    A. They are heavenly bodies different in composition.

    B. They are heavenly bodies similar in nature.

    C. There are more asteroids than meteoroids.

    D. Asteroids are more mysterious than meteoroids.

  9. We can conclude from the passage that_____ .

    A. while pushing asteroids off course nuclear weapons would destroy the world

    B. asteroids racing across the night sky are likely to hit Earth in the near future

    C. the worry about asteroids can be left to future generations since it is unlikely to happen in our lifetime

    D. workable solutions still have to be found to prevent a collision of asteroids with Earth.

  10. Which of the following best describes the author's tone in this pass age?

     A. Optimistic.  B. Critical.  C. Objective.  D. Arbitrary.
