“Iris scan (虹膜扫描) ， please,” the bank’s computer voice tells you . You step up and the computer reads your eye , comparing it to the stored file(已存储的文档) it has of your iris. The images had better match—or you won’t be able to get your money.
Iris scanning and other technologies , such as fingerprint (指纹)and voice scanning , have appeared in many movies in the past. Today, these technologies are part of the real world. They are common at work, the bank, the airport, and your local prison. The iris scan, fingerprint scan, and voice scan are all examples of biometrics( 生物测定学), a fast developing area of automatic personal identification technology . Basically , biometrics uses different ways to verify a persons identity , based on the personal characteristics ,including fingerprints, voices, irises, body heat patterns, facial images, handprints , signatures and so on.
Biometrics identification systems have a number of advantages over password systems. One advantage is that a person has to be physically present in order to be identified. Another important advantage is that there are no passwords to remember, forget, lose or steal.
The voice scan is the simplest and most affordable form of biometrics. It only requires a computer, a microphone and the correct software. The software records a subject’s voice and then compares it to a stored voice sample for identification purposes.
For additional safety, fingerprint and handprint scans can also be used. Fingerprint scans take the image of a fingerprint and compare it to a stored file of prints. Handprint scans identify the personal features of a hand.
Iris scans give the highest level of accuracy among all the present biometrics systems. Another technology, full facial scans , is in use at border crossings and airports. Facial scanning equipment can actually track and identify moving faces within a crowd.
The future of biometrics is exciting and encouraging. With continued development, testing , and application , the technologies will become even more effective（有效的） in the future. Soon, the days of password and car keys will be gone. Just don’t leave home without your fingerprints!

If you are like most people, climbing up walls and jumping from one rooftop to another is not a normal part of your day. But then, most people don’t practice parkour (跑酷)!
Parkour is often considered as the art of movement. Practitioners — called traceurs (who practice parkour skills) — train their bodies and minds so they can move from one place to another as quickly as possible. As these special athletes move, they run, jump, climb and roll past even the most frightening obstacles (障碍)! Traceurs don’t go around walls, fences and bike racks (自行车架) — they go over them.
To do this, they use lots of skills that allow them to move easily and quickly. These include the “cat balance”, in which traceurs move along narrow (狭窄的) objects on all fours; the “Tic Tac”, where they kick off or run up walls; the “forward roll”, used to land safely out of a drop from a high object; the “light drop”, where one drops down off an object.
If you think parkour sounds difficult, then consider coasteering! Unlike parkour, which is usually practiced in cities, coasteering is done along rocky coasts. Practitioners of coasteering, called coasteers, work their way along the line of a coast at sea level. To do this, they must climb over rocks, sometimes jump into the sea and swim around obstacles.
Coasteering is very interesting, but there are also some risks because of the slippery (滑的) rocks and unexpected ocean waves. So coasteers always choose their routes(路线) according to conditions. And when they reach an obstacle, they consider very carefully whether to climb past it, jump over it or swim around it. Coasteering is not for everyone. But for those who enjoy a bit of adventure, it can be a great way to exercise.
33. Which of the following skills does a traceur often use when he runs up walls?
A. Cat balance. B. Light drop.
C. Forward roll. D. Tic Tac.
