Being a journalist is not an easy job. In fact there are many risks that a journalist has to take in order to succeed in covering certain events. The risks involve being threatened with death by people in authority or wealthy businessmen. Some journalists cover life-threatening events such forest fires, wars and hurricanes.
Editors of newspapers and magazines often go to extremes to provide their readers
with unimportant facts and statistics. Last year a journalist had been instructed by a well-known magazine to write an article on the president's palace in a new African republic. When the article arrived, the editor read the first sentence and then refused to publish it. The article began
“Hundreds of steps lead to the high wall which surrounds the president's palace”. The editor at once sent the journalist a fax instructing him find out the exact number of steps and the height of the wall.
The journalist immediately set out to obtain these important facts, but he took a long time to send them. Meanwhile, the editor was getting impatient, for the magazine would soon go to press. He sent the journalist two more faxes, but received no reply. He sent yet another fax informing the journalist that if he did not reply soon he would be fired. When the journalist again failed to reply, the editor reluctantly published the article as it had originally been written. A week
later, the editor at last received a fax from the journalist. Not only had the poor man been arrested, but he had been sent to prison as well. However, he had at last been allowed to send a fax in which he informed the editor that the he had been arrested while counting the 1084 steps leading to the fifteen-foot wall which surrounded the president's palace.

B Reading Comprehension

2 Read the following passage, then answer the questions:

The leap from secondary school to university is a huge one. Suddenly, you are no longer in familiar surroundings and are responsible for yourself. For some students that is a bit frightening, while for others it is reason for excitement. Having had to wear a silly school uniform for years, I was thrilled to get rid of it. There were rules at university, too. Basically, I had to attend most of my tutorials and hand in any assignments my tutors had set for me. You don’t have teachers running after you to correct homework. Lecturers give you knowledge that you somehow have to learn. You aren't taught; you are given knowledge from academics. Other than that, I was free to do as I wished it wasn't even compulsory to go to lectures. However, too much freedom and a lack of routine can lead to trouble. Several people I knew fell so far behind that they gave up and dropped out of university I was very nearly one of them. Students' life is liberating, but it also requires a measure of self-control and a strong determination to succeed. Finding that balance was one of the hardest things. I'd ever had to do. It was well worth it though because, in the end, I learnt how to talk care of myself and work towards a bright future.

To conclude, going to university isn’t an easy matter however you have to bear much responsibility. You have to be very self-motivated and an independent learner

B Reading Comprehension

2 Read the following passage, then answer the questions:

The human tongue is about 10 centimeters long. It is covered with taste buds. These are tiny nerve endings which enables us to taste our food. Babies are born with taste buds all over their mouths. These gradually disappear as they grow older, leaving only those on the tongue . An adult has about 1,000 taste.

We can taste our food when saliva, a liquid produced by the mouth, dissolves chemicals in the food and washes them over the taste buds. There are four basic tastes: sweet, sour, salt, and bitter. All the taste buds can detect different tastes best. Sweet tastes, such as sugar, are best detected by the taste buds at the tip of the tongue. Salt is detected by those at the front sides of the tongue. The taste buds along the edges at the back of the tongue are good at detecting sour tastes, such as lemon, and those on the back of the tongue detect bitter tastes such as coffee. There are no taste buds in the center of the tongue. The tongue is also used in speaking. Sounds are made in the vocal cords in the throat. The combined action of the tongue, throat, mouth, and lips changes the sounds into words.

2 Read the following passage, then answer the questions:

Mankind has always been affected by his environment, nature, and his surroundings. Plants and trees, of course, have had the most significant influence on man throughout his history on this planet.

The oldest living things on Earth are trees. Some of California's sequoias have for four thousand years looked down on the changes in the landscape and the comings and goings of humans. They sprouted from tiny seeds about the time the Egyptian pyramids were being built. Today these giant patriarchs seem as remote and inaccessible as the rocks and mountain cliffs on which they grow, like cathedral columns holding up the sky. It is hard to imagine them playing any part in the lives of mere humans or being in any way affected by the creatures that pass at their feet.

Lesser trees, however, have played an intimate role in the lives of people since they first appeared on Earth. Trees fed the fires that warmed humans: they provided shelter, food and medicine and even clothing. They also shaped people's spiritual horizons. Trees expressed the grandeur and mystery of life, as they moved through the cycle of seasons, from life to death and back to life again. Trees were the largest living things around humans and they knew that some trees had been standing on the same spot in their parent's and grandparents' time, and would continue to stand long after they were gone. No wonder these trees became symbols of strength, fruitfulness, and everlasting life.

2 Read the following passage, then answer the questions:

  1. Charles Babbage, a professor of mathematics at Cambridge University, invented the first calculating machine in 1812, he could hardly have imagined the situation we find ourselves today. Nearly everything we do in the modern world is helped, or even controlled, by computers, the complicated descendants of his simple machine. Computers are being used more and more extensively in the world today, for the simple reason that they are far more efficient than human beings. They have much better memories and can store huge amounts of information, and they can do calculations in a fraction of the time taken by a human mathematician. No man alive can do 500,000 sums in one second, but an advanced computer can.

In fact, computers can do many of the things we do, but faster and better. They can pay wages, reserve seats on planes, control machines. Mr. Woods, a bank manager, discusses some of the ways in which computers control our cash. 'I think most of our customers realize that in modern banking we make extensive use of computers. They see that the codes on their cheques are printed in a special way so that they can be read by a computer.

Nurse Penny Atkins works in a large, modern hospital. ''We use computers a lot in medicine nowadays. For instance, at the hospital where I work we make patients' appointments through a computer, which saves a lot of time. So does keeping patients' records on a computer. It also saves space because you can get so much more information onto a piece of computer tape than a piece of paper. Another advantage is that anyone who wants information on a patient can get it quickly, or even at the same time as someone else. You just dial the computer. In the past a doctor might take a patient's records away to his room and keep them for weeks.

A- Choose the correct answer from a. b, c or d:

1- For what did Charles Babbage invent his machine?

2. Read the following passage, then answer the questions:

Have you ever thought about giving money to volunteers to reward them for what they have done? You might have thought of that once and of course the majority _if not all_ of them refused and even some of them got irritated because they think of volunteering in a different way.

What is a volunteer? What is the value of volunteering? Is volunteering about money? Should we measure it that way? Most people would say no. Volunteering is not about money. Volunteering is about giving, contributing, and helping other individuals and the community at large. It is working with others to make a meaningful contribution to a better community.

People volunteer for an endless variety of reasons. Many people want to gain experience, acquire new skills, meet new people, or expand their network of contacts as a way to get a new job or start a career. Others just want to give back to their community, to help a friend or promote a worthwhile activity. They do it because it makes them feel good. It gives them what is described by some volunteers as a "private smile."

This is the intrinsic value of volunteering. It is not about money. And volunteering should not be measured that way. To attempt to put a dollar figure on the value of volunteerism cheapens and undermines the basic concept. Volunteering is rich and diverse. It is thousands of volunteers in shelters for the homeless, giving aid to seniors, holding hands in a hospice or cleaning up a local stream bed, helping a neighbour shovel their walk, coming to the aid of a stranded motorist or helping an elderly person cross a busy street. These large and small acts, given freely, are what bind communities together. Volunteering is helping, not hiring; giving, not taking; contributing, not counting.

 

A- Choose the correct answer from a. b, c or d:

1. One of the social benefits people get out of volunteering is …………………….. .

a)earning a big amount of money.                b) meeting new people.

c)getting work skills.                                  d) gaining lingual experience.

2. Volunteering gives volunteers …………………………. .

a) a sense of superiority                            b) a special kind of smile

c) thousands of dollars                            d) a sense of inferiority

3- Why is volunteering considered to be diverse?

a)It involves helping ill people.

b) It makes you help old people.

c)It provides shelter for the homeless.

d) It involves any act that gives help to others.

4- The value of volunteering is ………………………….. money can ever measure.

a) the same as        b) deeper than              c) sillier than                d) less worthy than

B Reading Comprehension

2. Read the following passage, then answer the questions:

What is happening to our weather?

One weekend in May 2010, Nashville in the USA was expecting a few centimetres of rain. Two days later, 33 centimetres had fallen and eleven people had died in the resulting floods. There’s been a change in the weather. Extreme events like the Nashville flood – described by officials as a once-in-a-millennium occurrence – are more frequent than before. Also in 2010, 28 centimetres of rain fell on Rio de Janeiro in 24 hours, causing mud slides that buried hundreds of people. And record rains in Pakistan led to flooding that affected more than 20 million people. The following year, floods in Thailand left factories near Bangkok under water, creating a worldwide shortage of computer hard drives. Meanwhile, severe droughts have affected Australia, Russia and East Africa. Deadly heat waves have hit Europe, leaving 35,000 people dead in 2003. Financial losses from such events jumped 25 percent to an estimated $150 billion worldwide in 2011.
What’s going on? Are these extreme events signals of a dangerous, human-made change in the Earth’s climate? Or are we just going through a natural run of bad luck? The short answer is: probably both. On the one hand, the most important influences on weather events are natural cycles in the climate. Two of the most famous weather cycles, El Niño and La Niña, originate in the Pacific Ocean and can affect weather patterns worldwide. But something else is happening too: the Earth is steadily getting warmer, with significantly more moisture in the atmosphere. The long-term accumulation of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere is trapping heat and warming up the land, oceans and atmosphere. As the oceans warm up, they produce more water vapour and this, in turn, feeds big storms, such as hurricanes and typhoons.

And yet, there are ways of dealing with the effects of such extreme events. After 2003, French cities set up air-conditioned shelters for use in heat waves. In the 2006 heat wave, the death rate was two-thirds lower. ‘We know that warming of the Earth’s surface is putting more moisture into the atmosphere. We’ve measured it. The satellites see it,’ says climatologist Jay Gulledge. Another scientist, Michael Oppenheimer, agrees. We need to face up to that reality, he says, and do the things we know can save lives and money.

A- Choose the correct answer from a. b, c or d:

1- The article says that extreme weather events ---------

  1. have an influence on the climate.            b- kill more people than before.
  2. are part of a long-term change.                d-have no influence at all

 

2- According to the article, -------.

a- don’t know what causes extreme weather.

b- there’s more than one factor influencing our weather.

c-it’s not possible for humans to influence the weather.

d-extreme weather happens in just one place


3- Why was the rain in Nashville considered to be an extreme event?

  1. There was very high rainfall over many days.

b- The amount of rain was forecast in advance.

  1. There was very high rainfall in a very short time.

d-there was little rainfall over a few days

 

4- The rainfall in Nashville in 2010 ----------

  1. last happened a thousand years ago.

b- happens every one hundred years.

  1. caused very rare flooding.

d-affected the production of computer hard drives

 

5- Why did fewer people die in France in the 2006 heat wave?

a- were better facilities provided.

b-Fewer people were in city centres at the time.

c- wasn’t as severe as in 2003.

d-Many people were taken to hospitals immediately

 

6- According to Michael Oppenheimer ---

a- there’s no way to stop extreme weather.

b- we can be better prepared for the effects of climate change.

c- we need to spend more money so that fewer people die

d-we can actually do very little to reduce the effect of extreme weather

 

B- Answer the following questions:

7-What caused deaths in Rio de Janeiro?

8-Where are computer hard drives mostly produced?

9-What does the underlined word “it” refer to?
