What a day!

One afternoon, three weeks ago, Terry decided to take his pet snake out for a walk. He put a snake to a basket and went to the park.

At the park Terry took the snake out to the grass. He played with his snake and put it back in basket. Terry read a very interesting book. 15 minutes later he saw that his snake was not in the basket.

Terry looked everywhere but he couldnt look for snake. He started shouting and then he called the police. People were scared. They shouted, Snakes! Many dangerous snakes are in the park! Everyone leaved the park. Police couldnt find the snake.

Terry was sad. He drove home. Suddenly he noticed that his snake slept on car floor. They both were happy.

Что за денек!

Как то днем, три недели назад, Терри решил брать свою ручную змею на прогулку. Он положил змею в плетенку и пошел в парк.

В парке Терри выпустил змею на травку. Он поиграл со собственной змеей и положил её назад в корзину. Терри почитал очень занимательную книгу. 15 минут спустя он увидел, что его змеи нет в корзине.

Терри искал всюду, но не сумел узреть змею. Он начал вопить, и потом он позвал полицию. Люди были испуганы. Они голосили: Змея! Много небезопасных змей в парке!. Все покинули парк. Милиция не смогла отыскать змею.

Терри был расстроен. Он поехал домой. Неожиданно он заметил, что его змея почивает на полу машины. Они оба были счастливы.

1.

Artificial intelligence is the art of making machines that are able to ‘think’. We often don’t notice it, but artificial intelligence is all around us. It is present in computer games, in the cruise control in our cars and the servers that direct our e-mail. Some scientists believe that the most powerful computers could have the power of the human brain. Machines have always been excellent at tasks like calculation. But now they are better than humans in many spheres, from chess to mixing music.

2.

The world’s most powerful computer is ASCI Purple, made by IBM in 2004. It can carry out 100 trillion operations per second and has the size of two basketball courts. A computer with double power is expected in the next two years. A spokesman for IBM said that ASCI Purple is near the power of the human brain. But some scientists believe our brains can carry out almost 10,000 trillion operations per second.

3.

The possible dangers of intelligent machines became the stories of many science fiction films. In The Terminator (1984), a computer network uses nuclear weapons against the human race in order to rule the world. This network then makes intelligent robots called ‘Terminators’ which it programs to kill all the humans. In The Matrix (1999) and The Matrix Reloaded (2003), a machine dominates humanity, using people as batteries to power itself.

4.

In 1997, then the world chess champion Garry Kasparov played against IBM’s Deep Blue supercomputer – and lost. After six games, the world-famous Kasparov lost 2.5 to 3.5 to the computer. In February 2003, Kasparov restored human reputation by finishing equal against the Israeli-built supercomputer Deep Junior. Kasparov ended the game with the score 2-2 against US company X3D Technologies’ supercomputer X3D Fritz in November 2003, proving that the human brain can keep up with the latest developments in computing (at least in chess).

5.

There are a number of different methods which try to measure intelligence, the most famous of which is perhaps the IQ, or ‘Intelligence Quotient’ test. This test was first used in early 20th century Paris. The modern day IQ test measures a variety of different types of ability such as memory for words and figures and others. Whether IQ tests actually test general intelligence is disputable. Some argue that they just show how good the individual is at IQ tests!

6.

Analysis shows that human intelligence is changing. We are gaining abilities in some areas of intelligence, while losing them in others, such as memory. So this generation may not remember the great number of poems, their abilities are greater in other areas. It has been discovered that wide use of video games improves reaction time. But we could only dream of computing without calculators as fast as our grandparents did.

7.

In 1950, mathematician Alan Turing invented a test to check machine intelligence. In the Turing Test, two people (A and B) sit in a closed room, a third person (C), who asks questions, sits outside. Person A tries to answer the questions so that person C doesn’t guess who they are: men or women, while person B tries to help him (C) in their identification. Turing suggested a machine take the place of person A. If the machine fooled the human, it was likely to be intelligent.

A School Story

It happened at my private school thirty odd years ago, and I still can’t explain it. I came to that school in September and among the boys who arrived on the same day was one whom I took to. I will call him McLeod. The school was a large one: there must have been from 120 to 130 boys there as a rule, and so a considerable staff of masters was required. One term a new master made his appearance. His name was Sampson. He was a tall, well-built, pale, black-bearded man. I think we liked him. He had travelled a good deal, and had stories which amused us on our school walks, so that there was some competition among us to get a chance to listen to him.
Well, the first odd thing that happened was this. Sampson was doing Latin grammar with us. One of his favourite methods was to make us construct sentences out of our own heads to illustrate the rules he was trying to teach us. Now, on this occasion he ordered us each to make a sentence bringing in the verb memini, ‘I remember.’ Well, most of us made up some ordinary sentence such as ‘I remember my father,’ but the boy I mentioned — McLeod — was evidently thinking of something more interesting than that. Finally, very quickly he wrote a couple of lines on his paper, and showed it up with the rest. The phrase was «Remember the lake among the four oaks.» Later McLeod told me that it had just come into his head. When Sampson read it he got up and went to the mantel-piece and stopped quite a long time without saying anything looking really embarrassed. Then he wanted to know why McLeod had put it down, and where his family lived, and if  there was such a lake there, and things like that.
There was one other incident of the same kind. We were told to make a conditional sentence, expressing a future consequence. We did it and showed up our bits of paper, and Sampson began looking through them. All at once he got up, made some odd sort of noise in his throat, and rushed out. I noticed that he hadn’t taken any of the papers with him, so we went to look at them on his desk. The top paper on the desk was written in red ink — which no one used — and it wasn’t in anyone’s handwriting who was in the class. I questioned everyone myself! Then I thought of counting the bits of paper: there were seventeen of them on the desk, and sixteen boys in the form. I put the extra paper in my bag and kept it. The phrase on it was simple and harmless enough: ‘If you don’t come to me, I’ll come to you.’ That same afternoon I took it out of my bag — I know for certain it was the same bit of paper, for I made a finger-mark on it — and there was no single piece of writing on it!
The next day Sampson was in school again, much as usual. That night the third and last incident in my story happened. We — McLeod and I — slept in a bedroom the windows of which looked out at the main building of the school. Sampson slept in the main building on the first floor. At an hour which I can’t remember exactly, but some time between one and two, I was woken up by somebody shaking me. I saw McLeod in the light of the moon which was looking right into our windows. ‘Come,’ he said, — ‘come, there’s someone getting in through Sampson’s window. About five minutes before I woke you, I found myself looking out of this window here, and there was a man sitting on Sampson’s window-sill, and looking in.’ ‘What sort of man? Is anyone from the senior class going to play a trick on him? Or was it a burglar?!’ McLeod seemed unwilling to answer. ‘I don’t know,’ he said, ‘but I can tell you one thing — he was as thin as a rail: and water was running down his hair and clothing and,’ he said, looking round and whispering as if he hardly liked to hear himself, ‘I’m not at all sure that he was alive.’ Naturally I came and looked, and naturally there was no one there.
And next day Mr. Sampson was gone: not to be found, and I believe no trace of him has ever come to light since. Neither McLeod nor I ever mentioned what we had seen to anyone. We seemed unable to speak about it. We both felt strange horror which neither could explain.

Аудирование


ЕГЭ по английскому языку начинается с девяти заданий на аудирование. В сумме за них можно получить 20 баллов, а это достаточно много. Поэтому к выполнению подобных заданий нужно хорошо подготовиться – сложно получить высокие баллы, не имея привычки именно к формату ЕГЭ. Даже те люди, которые владеют английским языком на уровне B2-C1, но не готовились к этим заданиям с учетом их структуры, могут набрать неожиданно мало баллов – умение бегло воспринимать английскую речь на слух очень важно, но его может быть недостаточно.

Нужно хорошо укладываться в строго ограниченное время, быстро читать текст задания и знать его формат. Начинать подготовку к аудированию нужно заблаговременно, чтобы привыкнуть к такому формату заданий – в Интернете можно найти множество вариантов. А для дополнительной тренировки навыка понимания речи на слух хорошо подходят различные подкасты для всех уровней сложности, которых сейчас тоже немало.


Первое задание

Первое задание может принести сразу 6 баллов. В задании приводится 7 утверждений, отражающих основную мысль текстов. Как правило, они все связаны общей темой –  например, это могут быть тексты об окружающей среде, об одежде, о личных страхах или о еде. Нужно прочитать и осмыслить их за 20 секунд, после чего на магнитофоне включаются идущие подряд 6 записей небольших высказываний. Их нужно соотнести с приведенными в задании утверждении, одно из которых окажется лишним. Запись повторится дважды. Давайте рассмотрим пример задания с приведенными скриптами аудиозаписи.

Вы услы­ши­те 6 высказываний. Уста­но­ви­те со­от­вет­ствие между вы­ска­зы­ва­ни­я­ми каж­до­го го­во­ря­ще­го A–F и утверждениями, дан­ны­ми в спис­ке 1–7. Ис­поль­зуй­те каж­дое утверждение, обо­зна­чен­ное со­от­вет­ству­ю­щей цифрой, толь­ко один раз. В за­да­нии есть одно лиш­нее утверждение. Вы услыши­те за­пись дважды.

  1. A uniform makes the school a better organized place.
  2. Uniforms help improve the discipline at schools.
  3. Uniforms can help prevent crimes at school.
  4. Uniforms will not make life at school better.
  5. Uniforms can teach students how to behave professionally.
  6. Getting used to uniforms is good for a future career.
  7. Uniforms make students focus more on their learning.

SpeakerA

I honestly support school uniforms and let me explain why. I think one of the problems our current generation is facing is that they are all influenced by gang culture. It is the root cause of numerous evils at schools, and many people from my school are members in the so-called school gangs. With uniforms, I believe, there are not so many chances for conflicts and violence. Besides, it creates a healthy team culture and harmony on campus.

SpeakerB

I think when a person hears the word ‘school’, the first two things that come to mind are discipline and rules. Everybody knows that we kids love to break rules and it is hard to make us obey. Almost daily at schools, it is common to spend some time making us obey certain rules and disciplining us. Making us wear a uniform is a part  of it but I don’t think there’s any point in trying to do so because kids will be kids. They never obey.

SpeakerC

My school has a dress code which is not exactly a uniform and some students treatthis too creatively. Every morning our teachers start to check our clothes and so on. This happens during the first class so I think a lot of valuable lesson time could be saved if we had a strict uniform policy at school. People in charge would not have
to worry about checking what each and every student is wearing and whether it’s acceptable or not.

SpeakerD

My school doesn’t have a uniform and I don’t like it. You may be surprised but look – the best schools in the country do have uniforms and nobody there minds that! I think a uniform creates a sense of belonging and a feeling of pride amongst students towards their institution. I think students wearing a school uniform are more likely to develop a sense of community spirit which can be later quite useful at work with teambuilding and things like that.

SpeakerE

I think school isn’t about studies now. It’s more about hanging out at the canteen, and playing music but you rarely hear anyone having a good conversation about a lecture. I wish we had a uniform to help us concentrate more on our studies. When all students are wearing a similar outfit, they are less concerned about what other
people are wearing. They tend to bond nicely with peers and can create an environment where they can learn in a group.

SpeakerF

I support uniforms because I think they are useful for my future career. Dress codes and uniforms are a part of practically every job now. Professionalism is very important as we grow up and especially when we enter a corporate setup. Of course, I understand that there are no uniforms in some offices but I believe professionalism is what uniform-friendly children are better at than casually dressed kids. So I don’t mind wearing a uniform to school.

Как мы видим, тема данного задания – школьная форма. Значит, во время второго прослушивания высказываний нужно фиксировать внимание на тех предложениях, где упоминается это слово. В первом высказывании человек сразу говорит, что поддерживает школьную форму, приводя аргумент ближе к концу монолога – With uniforms, I believe, there are not so many chances for conflicts and violence. Это лучше всего соотносится с третьей фразой – Uniforms can help prevent crimes at school. Во втором высказывании человек говорит, что попытки заставить детей соблюдать дисциплину в школе безрезультатны – следовательно, форма ничего здесь не изменит. Это соответствует четвертому утверждению.  Автор третьего высказывания говорит, что из-за отсутствия формы большая часть первых уроков тратится зря и считает, что форма помогает лучше организовать школьную деятельность и сохранить время – здесь подходит первое высказывание.

В четвертом высказывании говорится, что если в школе введена форма, у учеников развивается чувство сплоченности и умения работать в команде – с первого взгляда трудно понять, какое же утверждение тут подходит. Но, посмотрев на варианты, можно увидеть, что больше всего подходит шестое – ведь умение работать в команде и ощущение себя как части дружного коллектива станет отличным подспорьем во время работы. Автор пятого высказывания полагает, что форма помогает лучше сконцентрироваться на учебе, не отвлекаясь на одежду – I wish we had a uniform to help us concentrate more on our studies. Это отражено в седьмом утверждении. В последнем же высказывании человек, с одной стороны, говорит о карьере, что вроде бы вписывается в шестое утверждение, но больший упор он делает на слово professionalism: Professionalism is very important as we grow up. Professionalism is something uniform friendly children are better at than casually dressed kids. Это хорошо отражает суть пятого высказывания. Очень важно слушать задание внимательно и, даже услышав одно слово, подходящее под какой-то вариант, не расслабляться, а слушать дальше, чтобы не совершить ошибку.

Ответ:

Говорящий A B C D E F
Утверждение 3 4 1 6 7 5

Второе задание

За верно выполненное второе задание можно получить 7 баллов. В нем нужно прослушать диалог и для семи приведенных утверждений написать, какое верно, какое неверно и о чем в тексте не упоминается.

Вы услы­ши­те диалог. Определите, какие из приведённых утвер­жде­ний А–G со­от­вет­ству­ют со­дер­жанию тек­ста (1 – True), какие не со­от­вет­ству­ют (2 – False) и о чём в тексте не сказано, то есть на ос­но­ва­нии текста нельзя дать ни положительного, ни от­ри­ца­тель­но­го от­ве­та (3 – Not stated). За­не­сите номер вы­бран­но­го Вами ва­ри­ан­та от­ве­та в таблицу. Вы услы­ши­те за­пись дважды.

A. Jake succeeded in his school-leaving exams.

B. Jake has an elder brother.

C. Jake wants to teach the subject Miss Clark teaches.

D. Miss Clark is surprised with Jake’s career choice.

E. Jake doesn’t believe in the abilities of every student.

F. Miss Clark thinks Jake’s made the right choice.

G. Miss Clark isn’t happy to hear Jake’s words.

Teacher: Hello, Jake. You look great today.

Jake: Good evening, Miss Clark. Thank you for the compliment.

Teacher: I hope you’ll enjoy the party. After all, your classmates and you have certainly deserved it. You worked so hard during the academic year, and you passed your exams with flying colours. My colleagues and I are so proud of you all.

Jake: Oh, Miss Clark, of course we did a good job, but we are very grateful to our teachers. If not for you, our results wouldn’t be so good.

Teacher: It’s good to know that. Thank you. So, Jake, what are you going to do after the prom? Are you going to have a gap year?

Jake: Most of my classmates are going to travel somewhere, but I won’t be able to join them. I’m going straight to college.

Teacher: Why? Don’t you like to travel?

Jake: Of course, I do. Everybody likes to travel, don’t they? It’s just that this summer isn’t a good time to do it because I’ll have to help my brother. He’s just had surgery, you know.

Teacher: I hope your brother is doing fine. How did the operation go? Jake: It all went fine, thank you. The full recovery will take some time, but he’ll be absolutely fine in a couple of months.

Teacher: Oh, that’s excellent news. So, what college did you choose?

Jake: I’m going to Birmingham University. I want to be a teacher, like you.

Teacher: Really? I would never have thought you had chosen this career.

Jake: Well, I think it’s the most rewarding job in the world, so …

Teacher: It is, but mind you, not every student will succeed in your class. Sometimes, when one of your students fails, you blame yourself for it.

Jake: I think that’s true about many jobs, like doctors, for instance. I believe that every student has the potential for success and it’ll be so exciting because each new academic year will present new challenges and new potential successes.

Teacher: Well, Jake, if you are able to look at it that way, teaching is definitely your cup of tea.

Jake: Thank you, Miss Clark. It’s you and your colleagues who have inspired me.

Teacher: Thank you. Now it’s high time for you to join your friends, and it’s time for me to wipe away the tears – your words are so touching.

Jake: Sorry if I’ve upset you.

Teacher: No, that’s fine. It’s always good to hear such things, you know. See you later, Jake.

Jake: See you.

Про экзамены говорится во второй реплике учителя: you passed your exams with flying colours. Это – фразеологизм, который означает «прекрасно». Но даже если вы не знаете значения этой устойчивой фразы и не поняли, как именно сданы экзамены, не стоит переживать – сразу после этого учитель говорит «My colleagues and I are so proud of you all». Из этого следует, что мальчик сдал экзамены хорошо, ведь иначе им бы не стал гордиться весь преподавательский состав.

Про брата говорится чуть позднее – I’ll have to help my brother. He’s just had surgery, you know. Но о возрасте брата ничего не сказано – он может быть и младшим, и старшим, поэтому для второго высказывания выбираем цифру 3. Потом Джейк говорит, что хочет стать учителем, но не упоминает, какой именно предмет он хочет вести – ставим ту же цифру и для третьего утверждения. Мисс Кларк очень удивилась его выбору – Really? I would never have thought you had chosen this career, значит, четвертое высказывание верно. Далее они обсуждают эту профессию и учеников, и Джейк говорит – I believe that every student has the potential for success – он верит в то, что у каждого ученика есть способности, значит, утверждение Е неверно.

Мисс Кларк считает, что Джейку подходит эта профессия , употребляя в речи популярный фразеологизм – if you are able to look at it that way, teaching is definitely your cup of tea. И, конечно, ей было приятно слышать слова ученика о том, что она и ее коллеги вдохновили его на выбор профессии – она говорит, что добрые слова ее тронули:  its time for me to wipe away the tearsyour words are so touching…. Its always good to hear such things. Главное – вслушиваться в детали и обладать неплохим словарным запасом – иначе можно просто не понять, о чем идет речь.

Задания с третьего по девятое

Последняя часть аудирования ЕГЭ по английскому – прослушивание интервью и выполнение 7 заданий, связанных с ним. Все задания идут по порядку, в соответствии с упоминанием их аспектов в записи.

Presenter: Today in our studio we have a Brazilian-born actress Alice Jones, who made her film debut at the age of 18 in the Oscar-nominated «City of God». Good afternoon, Alice!

Alice Jones: Good afternoon. It’s a pleasure to be here. Thank you for inviting me.

Presenter: Your biggest achievements are connected with Hollywood and even your surname now is English. Do you still have any connections in Brazil?

Alice Jones: Well, my roots certainly remain firmly in Brazil. I own a production company in São Paolo, the city in which I was raised. Many of my family members are in the film and television industry, and my aunt and mother are both actresses there and my sister is a producer.

Presenter: What inspired you to become an actress?

Alice Jones: I can’t say I’ve always been interested in stardom. Once as a teenager I saw a performance at a theatre, and I loved the play. For me, it changed my perspective on acting and theater. I was 14, and I was enchanted; I completely fell in love. Then I finished school in São Paolo and started attending a university for the performing arts. When I got the invitation to come to an audition, I remember exactly when they told me who was going to be in the film. These were the same actors as in that play. I thought it was written in the stars.

Presenter: Are you currently into any project?

Alice Jones: I am. It is based on a novel by a wonderful Spanish writer. I read the book eight years ago. A really good friend of mine gave me the book, and she said, “You need to read this book because it’s a beautiful, strong story about this woman. Maybe she’s a nice character for you to play, so just read it”. Years went by, and now they want to make a version of it in Spanish, and I was happy when they called me because I always thought it was such a beautiful character for a woman to play. When they called me, I couldn’t believe that eight years after I read the book and fell in love with the character, they came to me. It was very special.

Presenter: As far as I remember, it’s not the first time you’ve worked on a book you love.

Alice Jones: So true! One of my films, «Blindness», is also based on one of my favourite books, so when they invited me, I had the same feeling. For «Queen of the South», again, my main reason to sign up for it was the character and the book, because that was a role I really wanted to play. So right after I got cast, I went straight to the book and made notes, getting all the little details about what people say about her, who she is, what type of woman she is in the world that she’s born into, how she manages to survive – all that. I was just trying to honor the book and
have a better understanding of it.

Presenter: How do you prepare for your roles?

Alice Jones: I have an acting coach that helps me. He works with me on preparing – running lines and having ideas and developing different ways of approaching characters. When it’s a story, based on a book, I basically work off the book. The book is my main source of material.

Presenter: I think now you’ve worked more in English than in Portuguese. Is it still difficult for you to work in another language that’s not Portuguese?

Alice Jones: Even now, it’s still a challenge. Because I’m so close to my family and friends and I always speak Portuguese, my heart and mind go to Portuguese. Once I’m on the set, after three or four months doing the series working hard every day and only speaking English, it becomes easier. Your mindset is there and you’re dreaming in English. But it is hard; in a way you keep translating from one language to another.

Presenter: Thank you, Alice.


What do we learn about Alice at the beginning of the interview?

  1. She has an Academy award already.
  2. She’s 18 years old.
  3. She was born in Brazil.

В самом начале интервьюер говорит, что актриса была рождена в Бразилии – ее дебют в роли актрисы был в 18 лет, но не говорит, что ей все еще 18. В случае с цифрами на экзамене нужно быть особенно внимательными.

Ответ: 3.


Which of the following is TRUE about Alice’s family?

  1. She takes part in a business with her family.
  2. All of her relatives live in São Paolo.
  3. Many of her relatives work in show business.

Актриса говорит, что выросла в Сан-Паулу, но не упоминает, что ее родственники живут там. Зато она рассказывает, что они работают в кино- и телеиндустрии – Many of my family members are in the film and television industry, and my aunt and mother are both actresses there and my sister is a producer.

Ответ: 3.


What made Alice want to become an actress?

  1. A theatre play she once saw.
  2. Her school in São Paolo.
  3. Glossy magazines about stars.

Сразу после ведущий спрашивает, почему девушка решила стать актрисой, и она говорит, что в 14 лет увидела одну театральную постановку, которая глубоко ее впечатлила – I saw a performance at a theatre, and I loved the play. For me, it changed my perspective on acting and theater. I was 14, and I was enchanted; I completely fell in love.

Ответ: 1.


Which is TRUE about Alice’s current project?

  1. Her character is very beautiful.
  2. Her part isn’t in English.
  3. Her friend offered her the role.

Далее они разговаривают о текущем проекте, в котором участвует Алиса. Она говорит про друга, но он предложил ей не роль, а книгу. Также она упоминает, что режиссеры планируют создать испаноязычную постановку, но конкретно об ее роли не говорится ничего – этот вариант выбирать нельзя. Потом девушка говорит: I always thought it was such a beautiful character for a woman to play.

Верный вариант: 1.


Why did Alice sign up for Queen of the South?

  1. Because of the film director.
  2. Because of the role she had to play.
  3. Because she had written the book.

Следующее задание легкое. Алиса прямо говорит: For «Queen othe South», again, my main reason to sign up for it was the character and the book, because that was a role I really wanted to play.

Ответ: 2.


What does Alice’s acting coach help her with?

  1. Getting to know the character.
  2. Memorizing the lines.
  3. Suggesting ideas about costumes.

Алиса говорит: I have an acting coach that helps me. He works with me on preparing – running lines and having ideas and developing different ways of approaching characters. Учитель актерского мастерства не помогает ей запоминать роли и не предлагает идеи костюмов – он помогает разрабатывать идеи и лучше узнавать персонажа.

Ответ: 1.


What does Alice say about having to act in English?

  1. It’s easier when she spends a long time working on it.
  2. It’s no problem for her anymore.
  3. It makes her translate all the time.

Алиса говорит, что португальский язык ей намного ближе, но после нескольких месяцев частого использования английского использовать его в постановках становится легче – Once I’m on the set, after three or four months doing the series working hard everyday and only speaking English, it becomes easier. Your mindset is there and you’re dreaming in English. Она не говорит, что это удается ей совсем без проблем, но и переводить постоянно не приходится – хотя она и говорит «in a way you keep translating from one language to another», нужно помнить, что in a way значит «в некоторой степени», а не «все время», как в задании.

5. Health Risks
6. Moderation Is the Key!
7. Diet and Exercise
8. Benefits of Good Nutrition

A. Developing healthy eating habits is simpler and easier than you might think. You will look and feel better if you make a habit of eating healthfully. You will have more energy and your immune system will be stronger. When you eat a diet rich in fruits and vegetables you are lowering your risk of heart disease, cancers and many other serious health ailments. Healthy eating habits are your ticket to a healthier body and mind.

B. A four-week clinical trial that tested the new regimen found that overweight adults who consumed a high-protein, entirely vegan diet were able to lose about the same amount of weight as a comparison group of dieters on a high-carbohydrate, low-fat vegetarian dairy diet. But while those on the high-carbohydrate dairy diet experienced drops of 12 percent in their cholesterol, those on the high-protein vegan diet saw cholesterol reductions of 20 percent.

C. ‘The idea preyed on me for a long time. If the Atkins Diet looks good, and it’s got so much saturated fat and cholesterol in it, suppose we took that out and put vegetarian protein sources in, which may lower cholesterol,’ Dr. Jenkins said. ‘We know that nuts lower cholesterol and prevent heart disease, and soy is eaten in the Far East, where they don’t get much heart disease. So we put these foods together as protein and fat sources.’

D. The first official warning about the dangers of the Atkins diet was issued by the government amid concern about the rising number of people opting for the high-fat, high-protein diet. Cutting out starchy foods can be bad for your health because you could be missing out on a range of nutrients. Low-carbohydrate diets tend to be high in fat, and this could increase your chances of developing coronary heart disease.

E. Earlier this year, a large study that compared different kinds of diets — including low-fat and low-carbohydrate plans — found that the method didn’t matter as long as people cut calories. That study also found that after two years, most people had regained at least some of the weight they had lost. Dr. Tuttle said that while different weight loss plans offer people different ‘tricks’ and strategies, ultimately, ‘It really comes down to calories in and calories out.’

F. When you think about nutrition, be aware of serving sizes. Many people will eat everything on their plate, regardless of how hungry they actually are. If you know you tend to clean your plate, make an effort to reduce your serving size. If you’re eating out or dining at a friend’s house, don’t be shy about asking for smaller portion sizes. Too much of any one food is a bad thing. There are no bad foods, just bad eating habits.

G. Your body has to stay well hydrated to perform at its best and to properly process all the nutrients in the food you eat. Drink at least 8 glasses of water a day. You may need even more water if you are in a hot environment or if you are exercising. If you are trying to lose weight, add plenty of ice to each glass of water. Your body will burn energy to warm the water up to body temperature.

Stonehenge is probably the most important prehistoric monument in Britain. The Stonehenge that we see today is the final stage A ____________. But first let us look back 5,000 years.

The first Stonehenge was a large earthwork or Henge, comprising a ditch, bank, and the Aubrey holes, all probably built around 3100 BC. The Aubrey holes are round pits in the chalk, about one metre wide and deep, B ____________. Excavations have revealed cremated human bones in some of the chalk filling, but the holes themselves were probably made not for the purpose of graves but as part of the religious ceremony. Shortly after this stage Stonehenge was abandoned, left untouched for over 1000 years.

The second and most dramatic stage of Stonehenge started around 2150 BC. Some 82 bluestones from south-west Wales were transported to the site. It is thought that these stones, some weighing 4 tonnes each, were dragged on rollers and sledges to the headwaters and then loaded onto rafts. This astonishing journey covered nearly 240 miles. Once at the site, these stones were set up in the centre C ____________.

The third stage of Stonehenge, about 2000 BC, saw the arrival of the Sarsen stones. The largest of the Sarsen stones weigh 50 tonnes and transportation by water would have been impossible D ____________. These stones were arranged in an outer circle with a continuous run of lintels. Inside the circle, five trilithons were placed in a horseshoe arrangement, E ____________.

The final stage took place soon after 1500 BC F ____________. The original number of stones in the bluestone circle was probably around sixty. They have long since been removed or broken up. Some remain only as stumps below ground level.

  1. when the bluestones were rearranged in the horseshoe and circle that we see today
  2. to form an incomplete double circle
  3. which form a circle about 284 feet in diameter
  4. which were almost certainly brought from the Marlborough Downs
  5. so the stones could only have been moved using sledges and ropes
  6. whose remains we can still see today
  7. that was completed about 3,500 years ago

My room faces the sun in the morning and on clear summer mornings it wakes me bright and fresh, no matter what time I stayed up till. I get up and make breakfast, watch TV, have a shower. If it’s before six in the morning, I usually have a cup of tea and go back to bed where I’ll doze until seven. If I stay at my sister’s, I sleep until the kids wake me or until she comes rolling in, poured from the back of some taxi, whichever is earlier. I’m an early riser, and a dead sleeper.

This morning I wake up with a twitch, like the alarm clock in my head has given me a little electric jolt. It isn’t sunny outside. I pull back the curtains and the sky is dark grey, the same colour as the sea and it looks like the sun won’t appear before tomorrow. Today is Dad’s birthday. Every year on my Dad’s birthday I draw a picture of him and each year he looks a bit different. I’m an artist. There, I said it. It’s not that I draw a straighter line or a truer circle, as they try to teach us to do at school. I just get the message across more clearly than other people. More truthfully. I know it.

I read a lot of books too, mainly about artists, and I go through phases when I like a certain artist or a movement. And I try to paint like them. When my dad comes back, I’ll be able to say ‘this is you when I was twelve and I was in love with Monet’ or ‘this is you on your thirty-eighth birthday, when I was fourteen and I wanted to paint like Dante Gabriel Rossetti.’ And he’ll look at each painting and know that I loved him and never forgot him.

At the moment I’m into lines, simple lines. It’s a development of a six month obsession I had with calligraphy, which came out of a phase I had with cartoons, which came from Liechtenstein and Warhol, and so on all the way back. So I get out my charcoals, and a couple of sticks of chalk and I pin a heavy sheet of grey A3 paper onto a board and rest it on my knee as I sit on the bed.

On Saturday mornings when my Mum worked, he’d take me to town and I’d drag him around the art shops. On my eighth birthday he bought me an easel, a real one, not a kiddie’s. On my ninth birthday he bought me oils. On my sixth birthday he bought me a box of 99 crayons. ‘Draw me,’ he’d say. ‘Oh, Dad, I can’t.’ Some mornings I’d wake up and there’d be a book on my pillow about Picasso, or Chagall.

I should go to school, I really should. I’m not one of those kids who are scared to go. I don’t get bullied and I’m not thick. I just can’t find a good reason to waste my day in a classroom studying physics or citizenship or Buddhism. I could learn them in the library. Phil, the head of year eleven, will bollock me for it tomorrow, if I go in. I’ll tell Phil the truth, it was my Dad’s birthday and I spent it with him.

So I spend some time thinking about his hair, which I think is probably no more grey than it was last year. I know hair doesn’t age at the same speed every year, but I make his hair longer this year. And in my mind’s eye I give him an extra few pounds too. But I keep the smile fixed in my head, maybe a little muted, like it is when he’s happy but distracted, or trying to understand me when I’m babbling to him.

It’s head and shoulders, so I’ll put him in a T-shirt that shows his neck and throat and how strong he is and how his eyes sparkle and how his eyebrows are dead level straight and still black. I try to think of how much I want to show and how much I want to tell. Then I pick up a charcoal stick and do it. I pick up a chalk to add a suggestion of colour to his eyes, then another chalk for his mouth. And there he is. Dad.

A School Story

It happened at my private school thirty odd years ago, and I still can’t explain it. I came to that school in September and among the boys who arrived on the same day was one whom I took to. I will call him McLeod. The school was a large one: there must have been from 120 to 130 boys there as a rule, and so a considerable staff of masters was required. One term a new master made his appearance. His name was Sampson. He was a tall, well-built, pale, black-bearded man. I think we liked him. He had travelled a good deal, and had stories which amused us on our school walks, so that there was some competition among us to get a chance to listen to him.
Well, the first odd thing that happened was this. Sampson was doing Latin grammar with us. One of his favourite methods was to make us construct sentences out of our own heads to illustrate the rules he was trying to teach us. Now, on this occasion he ordered us each to make a sentence bringing in the verb memini, ‘I remember.’ Well, most of us made up some ordinary sentence such as ‘I remember my father,’ but the boy I mentioned — McLeod — was evidently thinking of something more interesting than that. Finally, very quickly he wrote a couple of lines on his paper, and showed it up with the rest. The phrase was “Remember the lake among the four oaks.” Later McLeod told me that it had just come into his head. When Sampson read it he got up and went to the mantel-piece and stopped quite a long time without saying anything looking really embarrassed. Then he wanted to know why McLeod had put it down, and where his family lived, and if there was such a lake there, and things like that.
There was one other incident of the same kind. We were told to make a conditional sentence, expressing a future consequence. We did it and showed up our bits of paper, and Sampson began looking through them. All at once he got up, made some odd sort of noise in his throat, and rushed out. I noticed that he hadn’t taken any of the papers with him, so we went to look at them on his desk. The top paper on the desk was written in red ink — which no one used — and it wasn’t in anyone’s handwriting who was in the class. I questioned everyone myself! Then I thought of counting the bits of paper: there were seventeen of them on the desk, and sixteen boys in the form. I put the extra paper in my bag and kept it. The phrase on it was simple and harmless enough: ‘If you don’t come to me, I’ll come to you.’ That same afternoon I took it out of my bag — I know for certain it was the same bit of paper, for I made a fingermark on it — and there was no single piece of writing on it!
The next day Sampson was in school again, much as usual. That night the third and last incident in my story happened. We — McLeod and I — slept in a bedroom the windows of which looked out at the main building of the school. Sampson slept in the main building on the first floor. At an hour which I can’t remember exactly, but some time between one and two, I was woken up by somebody shaking me. I saw McLeod in the light of the moon which was looking right into our windows. ‘Come,’ he said, — ‘come, there’s someone getting in through Sampson’s window. About five minutes before I woke you, I found myself looking out of this window here, and there was a man sitting on Sampson’s window-sill, and looking in.’ ‘What sort of man? Is anyone from the senior class going to play a trick on him? Or was it a burglar?!’ McLeod seemed unwilling to answer. ‘I don’t know,’ he said, ‘but I can tell you one thing — he was as thin as a rail, and water was running down his hair and clothing and,’ he said, looking round and whispering as if he hardly liked to hear himself, ‘I’m not at all sure that he was alive.’ Naturally I came and looked, and naturally there was no one there.
And next day Mr. Sampson was gone: not to be found, and I believe no trace of him has ever come to light since. Neither McLeod nor I ever mentioned what we had seen to anyone. We seemed unable to speak about it. We both felt strange horror which neither could explain.
