HuangHua, 36, has been working at the Yangshan Deep Water Port for 13 years. But forthe first twelve years, he worked as a driver, operating machines in sky-highcranes (吊车).Now, his work location has moved to a control center, monitoring the cranesfrom afar.
“At atraditional port, I would work with a handle all day, repeating the same motion12 hours a day, four days a week. I used to have lots of neck problems. Now thetask is less physically challenging, but much more complex,” says Huang, who isnow a crane teleoperator.

Chinese researchers say they have come up with asimple way to find out a person’s biological age —how much the body has agedphysically – through a urine (尿) test.
Their findings will help researchers conduct numbersof ageing studies and even predict a person’s risk of age-related diseases,according to a paper published in the journal Frontiers in Ageing Neuroscience.
Another paper by researchers at the Beijing Hospitaland the West China Hospital in Chengdu, Sichuan province, said on Tuesday thatpeople aged at different rates due to changes in their genetic make-up andtheir environment.
Chronological age – which is based on one’s birthdate —was an inaccurate measure of biological age so a more accurate method wasneeded, the team said.
Ageing is driven by the lifelong gradual accumulationof a broad variety of molecular (分子) faults in the body’s cells. The team said they hadidentified a matter —8-oxoGsn — that indicated increases in oxidative (氧化性) damage in urine as people’s bodies aged.
Cai Jianping, a co-author at the Beijing Hospital,said: “As we age, we suffer increasing oxidative damage and so the levels ofoxidative matters increase in our body.” The team tested the levels of 8-oxoGsnin urine samples from 1,228 Chinese people aged two to 90 and concluded themarkerhelped accurately determine the stage of biological ageing in adults.
They had previously found that 8-oxoGsn levels alsoincreased with age in the urine of animals such as mice.
The team has also developed a rapid analysistechnique called ultra-high-performance liquid chromatography, which canprocess up to 10 urine samples an hour, according to the study.
32.Scientifically speaking, by what does a doctor judge the stage of a persongetting old?
A. His condition.
B. His biological age.
C. His psychology.
33.What are the outer factors the speed of one’s ageing physically depend on?
A.One’s birth date.
B. The increases in oxidative damage in urine.
C. The changes in their genetic make-up and theirenvironment.
D. The accumulation of various molecular faults inthe body’s cells.
34.Which can take the place of the underlined word “marker” in the sixth paragraph?
B. Molecular faults.
C. Oxidative damage.
D.Stage ofbiological ageing in adults.
35.What is the passage about?
A. Whypeople are ageing.
B. Howto delay people’s ageing physically.
C. Whatdetermines the stage of people’s ageing physically.
D. Arapid method with which to judge how much people are aging physically.
