Joke
(1) A man was driving along the highway, and saw a rabbit hopping across the middle of the road. He swerved to avoid hitting the rabbit, but unfortunately the rabbit jumped in front of the car and was hit. The driver, being a sensitive man as well as an animal lover, pulled over to the side of the road, and got out to see what had become of the rabbit.
(2) Much to his dismay, the rabbit was dead. The driver felt so awful, he began to cry. A woman driving down the highway saw the man crying on the side of the road and pulled over. She stepped out of her car and asked the man what was wrong. “I feel terrible,” he explained, “I accidently hit this rabbit and killed it.”
(3) The woman told the man not to worry. She knew what to do. She went to her car trunk and pulled out a spray can. She walked over to the limp, dead rabbit, and sprayed the contents of the can onto the rabbit.
(4) Miraculously the rabbit came to life, jumped up, waved its paws at the two humans and hopped down the road. 50 meters away the rabbit stopped, turned around, waved and hopped down the road, another 50 meters, turned, waved and hopped another 50 meters. The man was astonished. He couldn’t figure out what substance could be in the woman’s spray can!
(5) He ran over to the woman and demanded, “What is in your spray can? What did you spray on that rabbit?” The woman turned the can around so that the man could read the label. It said: “Hair spray. Restores life to dead hair. Adds permanent wave.”

Movie Review
Based on the novel by Richard Ford, and adapted by Paul Dano and Zoe Kazan, Wildlife takes us to Great Falls, Montana, in 1960. The Brinsons – mother Jeanette (Cary Mulligan), dad Jerry (Jake Gyllenhaal), and 14-year-old son Joe (Ed Oxenbould) – are newly arrived in a small Montana town. We learn quickly that money is tight, that this isn’t the family’s first relocation, and that both Jeanette and Jerry seem preoccupied with the idea of a life other than the one they have.

When Jerry, in the film’s early scenes, loses his job at a local golf course, a fault line in the family ruptures. Jerry drinks beer and sulks around the house feeling sorry for himself because his pride is hurt. His old boss admits he made a mistake and tries to hire him again, but Jerry refuses. So Jeanette decides to provide for the family by taking up a part-time job as a swim teacher. Joe, too, lands a job as a photographer’s assitant for some extra cash. But the family’s tipping point is when Jerry joins a firefighter team battling a blaze on a nearby mountain, leaving his wife behind with Joe. Jeanette has been getting restless herself, gradually losing respect for Jerry as he drifts from one thing to the next. She has an affair with an older, wealthier man, Mr. Miller (Bill Camp).

Wildlife is a domestic drama that is both sad and terrifying. The entire cast does exceptional work (Oxenbould is an exciting find), but the movie is anchored by Mulligan, who gives the best performance of any I’ve seen in film this year. It is mesmerizing to watch the character struggle with the question of whether or not she is entitled to her rage before she lets go and gives in to it – and finds that doing so gives her no satisfaction whatsoever.

Dano’s direction is meticulous in every respect, which enables him to keep the characters at a remove that is both clear-eyed and compassionate. The sharp cinematography by Diego Garcia is ideal for Dano’s purpose. The whole of the film is a potent collaboration in every respect, and a remarkable directional debut.

1. What is the first paragraph mainly about?
1. The performances of the actors
2. The writer of Wildlife
3. The resettlement of the Brinsons
4. The married life of Jeanette and Jerry
5. The preoccupation of Jeanette and Jerry

2. To blame Jeanette for commiting adultery
3. To provide the summary of the Wildlife story

1. Brutal
2. Stubborn

News

(BBC) – The cabinet has announced a ban on the production, import and sale of electronic cigarettes, saying they pose a risk to health.

An executive order had been approved banning vaping products because of their impact on young people, Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman said. It is not clear if the order will also prohibit the use of vaping equipment.

India has more than 100 million adult smokers, making it a huge potential market for e-cigarette companies.

Vaping – which involves inhaling a mix typically made of nicotine, water, solvents and flavours – is seen as an alternative to smoking which can help you quit, but its impact on health is still not fully known.

The ban will include jail terms of up to three years for offenders. Traditional tobacco products are not affected.

“This means the production, manufacturing, import and export, sale, distribution and advertising related to e-cigarettes are banned,” Ms Sitharaman told a news conference. She said evidence from the US and India suggested some young people saw vaping as a “style statement”.

India is the world’s second-largest consumer of tobacco products after China, and more than 900,000 people die in the country each year from tobacco-related illnesses.

Proponents of vaping say it helps people stop smoking and that banning it would encourage ex-smokers to pick up the habit again. But India’s health ministry, which proposed the ban, says it is in the public interest to ensure vaping doesn’t become an “epidemic” among young people.

India’s ban came a day after New York became the second US state to prohibit the use of flavoured e-cigarettes. Critics of vaping say flavours appeal particularly to children and risk them becoming addicted to nicotine.

Editorial

(1) This Friday’s school strike, which adults around the world have been asked to join is the largest mobilization yet attempted by the youth climate movement launched last year by the Swedish teenager Greta Thunberg. As such, it is an event of international significance. History shows not only that social change is possible, but that peaceful protest is among the most effective ways to bring it about. The campaigns against slavery, for female suffrage and for workers’ and civil rights, as well as the independence movements of former colonies including India, all harnessed new forms of civic participation and activism to the cause of progress.

(2) Movements on behalf of people who lack voting rights, of course, have little choice but to try to exercise influence outside the ballot box. As adults in democracies, we have become used to making our political choices in elections, with only a small minority in most countries actively involved in parties or campaigning. That does not mean political action should end there. And except for 16- and 17-year-olds in a handful of countries, children cannot vote. If they want their voices to be heard they must seek other means – such as a school strike.

(3) Less than a year ago, the world’s leading climate scientists issued a warning that we are running out of time to avert the worst effects of global warming, at a meeting in which some scientists were reported to be in tears. Temperatures are continuing to rise and the effects are already punishing, particularly in poorer parts of the world. But increases of more than 1.5 degrees Celsius would lead, scientists warn, to food scarcity and water stress for hundreds of millions more people. Heat-related deaths, forest fires and mass displacements by flooding become far more likely in this scenario, while for species including coral the consequence would be extinction.

(4) Yet despite these dire warnings and the attempts at decarbonization overseen since 1988 by the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, the world is failing. Carbon emissions in 2018 reached a record high of 37.1 billion tons. There has been some progress, measurable in pledges by governments and notably a decade of emissions cuts in the EU. The profile of green issues is higher, the cost of renewables is falling fast and public opinion in many countries is shifting.

(5) A reckoning is overdue with those who, seeking to avoid the transition to clean energy, have misled the public. Without the lost decades of inaction and denial, global warming need never have become the emergency it now is. Many politicians as well as fossil fuel industry executives and lobbyists are deeply culpable. But Friday is an opportunity to take action – as the Guardian newspaper is doing by declaring a climate emergency.

(6) Environmental campaigners, scientists and others deserve praise for thier climate work over many decades. That we are nowhere near where we should be, in spite of their efforts and knowledge, is a cause for anger. The freshness and seriousness of the school strike movement is a reason to hope.

(1) Responsible tourism refers to tourism which creates better places for people to live and to visit – with the emphasis on to live. Therefore, by definition, it is the opposite of overtourism, which diminishes the quality of life for local residents and creates a negative experience for visitors. Overtourism is sometimes simply a case of numbers: there are too many people in a particular place at a particular time. But in some cases, taking a more responsible approach to tourism can mitigate the negative effects.

(2) In these cases, the solution can be to travel as a responsible tourist; to travel in ways which maximize positive impacts and minimize the negative ones. Two things to think about are the place, and the time. Spain, Italy, Iceland and Croatia have all been in the news as victims or overtourism, but in each case, this is extremely localized. Barcelona is rammed, and many of its residents are understandably fed up, but Spain is a surprisingly large country, and many of its cities are not at all crowded with tourists. Better still, head out into the villages and mountains for a real glimpse of the country away from the mainstream hordes. Not only will you have a much more realistic insight into daily life in Spain; but in many small pueblos you’ll be eagerly welcomed as one of the few tourists to arrive. There are many places around the globe that need, and want, more tourists.

(3) Of course, if you really do want to meander through the aisles of La Boqueria, then you have no choice but to visit the Catalan capital. But what you can do is to visit it outside of peak season. This is more pleasant for you, less stressful for residents, puts less pressure on things like public transport, and may even save you quite a bit of money, too.

(4) And whenever you travel, try and ensure as much of your cash stays as local as possible. Pay national park entrance fees to ensure your visit supports conservation; stay in locally owned guesthouses; eat at local restaurants and take tours with local guides. Tourism can still be very much a force for good, and ensuring that local residents, habitats and wildlife benefit from your presence is an important part of that.

(5) Travelling responsibly, in smaller numbers, not only helps avoid overtourism. It will give you a greater connection with local people and ways of life: a far more authentic holiday experience.

(6) As tourists, we can ensure our own behavior is as beneficial as possible, but to really effect change across the industry, and around the world, things need to happen at a much higher level. Governments and local authorities need to look at ways to control tourist numbers – whether by raising prices, issuing permits to certain attractions, banning cruise ships over a certain size, or having greater control over which businesses open and where.

(7) As long as increasing numbers remains the goal of tourist boards and other tourism bodies such as the UNWTO (United Nations World Tourism Organization), this will not happen. But as soon as the focus shifts away from this, we can really start to tackle some of the industry’s greatest challenges. Overtourism may seem like a new concept, but there are many examples around the world of how it has been successfully avoided, dating back years. Gorilla tracking in East Africa is one such example; just eight permits per day are issued to track each gorilla family, and permit prices range from US $500-$750. Far from causing outcry, tourists view the handful of expensive permits as an exclusive, once-in-a-lifetime experience. The experience has not been boycotted; permits regularly sell out. Better still, the forests remain intact, and gorilla numbers, which were once threatened, have increased substantially since the introduction of tourism.

1. What is the purpose of paragraph 1?
1. To define responsible tourism
2. To show disapproval of overtourism
3. To raise an alarm about overtourism
4. To recommend an approach to tourism
5. To contrast responsible tourism with overtourism

3. Tourists to Spain should visit the villages and mountains outside big cities.
4. Other than Europe, there are many places in the world that welcome the tourists.
5. To travel as a responsible tourist, one should think about where and when to visit.

1. Not to visit Barcelona
2. Go to other countries rather than Spain
3. Go wherever they are warmly welcomed
4. Visit villages which are not interesting
5. Go to places where they can see real Spanish daily life
4. Why does the writer mention the Catalan capital in paragraph 3?
1. To guarantee that it is a must to visit
2. To inform tourists that its residents are friendly
3. To recommend it as another choice of places to visit.

My high school has this program for the intelligent students. Basically, they 61 the ‘average’ students from the ‘smart’ ones each year. This year, I took a course in math for the higher level program, but I ended up 62 out into the ‘average’ class. In my school, math is the thing that makes or breaks you. People saw that I dropped out of the higher level and I can always feel them laughing at me. I’ve had issues where I 63 and I run away from them at school. We’ve started picking out high school courses for next year, and my parents insist 64 math with the higher level. I somewhat want to, and I know I have the ability to do it now, but I’m scared that next year people will laugh at me and 65 me for coming back after I dropped out before. I’m scared of it all.
Sincerely,
Worried in high school

Dear Worried,

You seem to 67 with your parents that taking math at the higher level makes sense, and what’s holding you back is the thought that others will laugh at you. I can understand why you’re nervous about the reaction of classmates, 68 that shouldn’t determine your course of action. If you decide to go with the higher level math, figure out ahead or time how you will 69 teasing from your peers. 70 or come back with a quick retort will be helpful.
Good luck,
Ann
