When Jeremy Taylor went on a skiing holiday to Austria in
the winter of 2006, he got a lot more than he expected.
‘He had just split up with his girlfriend and was really
depressed,’ said Steve Kinsey, Jeremy’s best friend. ‘I knew
he needed a holiday.’
On the 15th of January, Steve and Jeremy flew out from
Gatwick and were soon racing down the slopes on the
fresh snow. ‘We’re not champion skiers but we know what
we’re doing,’ said Jeremy. Everything went perfectly for
the first three days. They spent the days skiing and the
evenings drinking and relaxing.
It was on the fourth day that it happened. Jeremy and
Steve wanted to try their first ‘black’ piste. ‘The blue pistes
are the easy ones for beginners, the red
ones are for the good skiers, and the
black ones are for the professionals,’
explained Steve. ‘Looking back, we
were crazy to try it, but perhaps it
wasn’t so bad in the end.’
When they reached the top, there was
nobody around. It was very windy
and they couldn’t see the bottom of
the piste. Steve went first and skied
carefully down the piste. Jeremy
started a few seconds later. ‘I knew
Steve was in front of me,’ said Jeremy,
‘but I couldn’t see him. I went a little
faster to try and catch him up. That’s
when I had the accident. I hit a tree stump and my ski
came off. I was probably doing about 50 kph at the time,
and I broke my leg in two places.’
‘I heard something,’ continued Steve. ‘But Jeremy was
always shouting on the piste so I thought he was OK.
When I got to the bottom I waited for him. After five
minutes, I knew something was wrong.’
Meanwhile Jeremy was lying in the snow, calling for help.
‘The pain was killing me,’ said Jeremy. ‘I shouted and
shouted but no one could hear me. I don’t know how
long I was there but I closed my eyes. I really thought I
was going to die.’ It wasn’t Steve who found Jeremy. It
was a French Olympic skier, Anna-Celina Pons, who found
him. ‘I saw something in the snow,’ said AnnaCelina. I thought it was some rubbish at first! I
skied over and found Jeremy.’
‘She saved my life,’ said Jeremy. ‘I wouldn’t be
alive today if it wasn’t for Anna-Celina.’
Jeremy had to stay for a few days in hospital
and Anna-Celina visited him every day. Their
friendship grew each time she visited and,
little by little, their friendship became love.
‘I know she’s the woman for me,’ said Jeremy
with a big smile on his face.
Are Jeremy and Steve planning any more
holidays? ‘Yes,’ said Steve. ‘Jeremy and AnnaCelina are getting married in July in France
– and they want me to be best man!’

Live Music
1r e a d i n g
a Ask and answer with a partner.
When was the last time you went to a live music concert?
Did you enjoy it? Why (not)?
Which band or singer would you most like to see live?
b Read the text and match the headings with paragraphs 1–4.
With all this new technology, are live music concerts a thing of the past?
Can we expect the live music scene to last?
How do you like your music?
What are the reasons for the boom in the live music scene?
With the blood, sweat, and tears of a live show? Or fast,
clean, and digital, direct from your MP3 player? The way
that we listen to music has changed dramatically over
the last decade with the evolution of technology. New
albums are not only released on CD, but in multiple formats
such as digital, USB flash drives, ring tones, and streams.
The way that people produce, buy, and listen to music is
transforming the economics of the music industry.
Absolutely not! In the UK, over 400 music
festivals take place each year, and
more people are going to live shows
than ever. Glastonbury Festival, one
of the UK’s biggest music events, is
growing every year and in 2007 will
host 175,000 people. The Performing
Rights Society which collects royalties for
songwriters, collected $24 million in 2005 from live pop
events in Britain. This was more than double the amount
collected in 2000.
and DJ events were more popular than traditional live
concerts. With the success of rock groups like Kasabian,
Franz Ferdinand, and The Kaiser Chiefs, there has been
a move back to live performances where fans can meet,
share, and physically experience music.
Another reason is financial; as fewer CDs are sold due to
digital music downloads, playing live is an important way
for singers to make money. Corporations such as mobile
phone and beer companies are happy to sponsor live
music events because of the large audiences they
can reach, and sponsored events such as
festivals are getting bigger every year.
One explanation is fashion and changing music trends.
During the dance music revolution of the 1990s, nightclubs
For the MP3 generation, music can be a
solitary experience, but most music lovers
agree that listening to music on a digital player
or mobile phone is nothing like experiencing it in
person. Fans want to get close to their favourite groups,
and experience the excitement and immediacy of a live
show. In 2006, tickets for major UK festivals such as T in
the Park and the V Festival sold out within hours. In 2007,
the Millennium Dome in London is re-opening as a new
music venue with a capacity of 23,000 people. The live
music scene in the UK is only going to get bigger!
c Answer the questions.
How many music festivals take place in the UK each year?
What is the Performing Rights Society?
What sort of music was popular in the 1990s?
Why is playing live important for bands?

e Ask and answer with a partner. What’s
the most interesting journey you’ve been
on? Who did you go with? Write a short
summary of your trip. Use the text to help.
The most unforgettable journey I have ever made was
in Egypt in 1999. I was with six other tourists travelling
through the Sinai desert. To look after us there were seven
Bedouin Arabs and to help us travel through the rocky
desert were seven camels. Riding a camel is a strange
experience and after the first day my friends and I were in
quite a lot of pain. After two or three days it becomes an
enjoyable experience and you are free to appreciate the
fantastic scenery around you.
After four days we reached a special area called Rainbow
Canyon. It is a beautiful narrow valley and the rock is made
up of many different colours. We rode in the early morning
before it got too hot and then rested at midday.
On the fifth day we stopped at an oasis. The camels drank
huge quantities of water, not knowing when they could
drink again. We put more sun cream on our pale skin.
Then we were off again – across sand dunes and along dry
river beds up to our next camp. I remember standing and
watching one evening as the sun sank below the horizon.
The Egyptian sun is much higher than the European
sun and it is also considerably warmer – in summer it is
sometimes 50 degrees Celsius. The Bedouin sang a song,
a very simple song, ‘The ship goes away. The ship comes
back. The ship brings sugar and tea.’ We joined in and sang
with them as the stars came out and filled the sky with
millions of tiny lights.
In total we spent a week riding through the Sinai. We saw
scorpions, lizards, snakes, and on one occasion a desert
fox. We slept under the stars – it was too hot to sleep in our
tents. Now, back in Europe, when I see the stars at night I
remember that trip to Egypt, the camp fire at night, the very
sweet tea we all drank, and the simple but beautiful song,
‘The ship goes away. The ship comes back. The ship brings
sugar and tea.’

tall. Its nickname is ‘the gherkin’ because it is
cigar-shaped and it looks like a gherkin! It has
40 floors and a restaurant on the 39th floor.
The tallest building in the United Kingdom is
One Canada Square on Canary Wharf in the
Docklands. It is 235 metres high and Londoners
call it ‘the vertical Fleet Street’, as many of

4.1 Listen to Caroline explaining
two plot summaries to a friend. Say
whether the SMS text sentences come
from Romeo and Juliet (A) or Pride
and Prejudice (B).
Since the first commercial SMS was
sent in 1992, text messaging has
revolutionized the way we communicate.
In 2011, mobile phone users sent an
average of 200 SMS messages per
month in the United Kingdom, and
by 2012, approximately 8.6 trillion
messages 1
However, if you thought text messages
were just for fun, think again! In the UK,
SMS is being used to help students revise
for exams. Some of the longest and most complicated works of English
literature are being compressed into SMS text, and delivered to students’
mobile phones. 2
by a student phone service, with
support from professors at University College London. For example,
Hamlet’s famous line ‘to be or not to be, that is the question’ becomes
. The ending of Charlotte Brontë’s novel Jane Eyre,
in which the wife of one of the protagonists burns down her husband’s
house, becomes ‘MadWyfSetsFyr2Haus’.
The scheme sends plots and key passages 4
choose quotes for exams or seminars. The texts chosen are connected
to the national curriculum in the UK and university course texts, but
there are plans to extend the service. One of its aims is to compress the
complete works of Shakespeare! Not everyone is in favour of the scheme
and critics say 5
by writers such as Dickens in this
way. Others say that as Dickens began his working life as a shorthand
writer, he would probably approve of the immediacy of SMS plot
Can we expect to see more developments in ‘literary texting’ in future?
In the USA, it is possible to read short stories delivered exclusively
through text messages, and in Japan 6
. In Australia,
churchgoers and students can receive extracts from the bible by SMS. It
seems that the possibilities for literary texting are endless.

Hi Will
How are you? Everything’s OK here, though the weather is getting colder now that it’s fall.
Thanks for your last email. It was interesting to hear about what schools in England are like; they
sound pretty similar to schools over here. You do a lot of sports at your school but I think we might do
even more! We play baseball, softball (a lighter style of baseball), American football, basketball, soccer,
field hockey, and kickball. We also do track and field, swimming, and tennis in summer. Our school
mascot is a panther.
My favorite sport is basketball. I love the New York Knicks and often go to watch them play with my
friends or parents. We don’t play rugby at our school. It sounds quite similar to our American football
though, where we can pick up the ball and run with it.
Got to go now. I have lots of homework to do. Email again when you get the chance.

25% of western pharmaceuticals come from rainforest
plants and many of these disappear each year. Some people

f Read the text. Underline the effects of global warming.
When energy from the sun passes through
the atmosphere it warms up the earth.
The energy that is reflected back off the
earth’s surface as heat, is trapped by the
atmosphere. Then greenhouse gases in the
atmosphere hold in this heat. This is known
as the greenhouse effect.
100 years sea levels have risen by 0.25m.
Global temperatures have increased by
0.6°. Scientists predict these will continue
to rise, causing extreme weather events.
Global warming is also causing parts of
some glaciers and ice-bergs to melt, and
ocean currents are changing. Deforestation
reduces the amount of trees available to
convert carbon dioxide to oxygen.
Governments are trying to change. In
1997 the Kyoto treaty was created as
an international agreement to reduce
carbon dioxide emissions, and protect the
The greenhouse gases are:
Methane (CH4) – from farming
and landfill sites
Carbon dioxide (C02) –
from power plants making
electricity by burning fossil
fuels (coal and oil)
Nitrous oxide (N20) – from
fertilisers, traffic fumes
industry and agriculture
Chlorofluorocarbons (CFC) –
from aerosols, old fridges and
fast-food packaging
The greenhouse effect
naturally stops the Earth from
getting too hot or too cold.
Greenhouse gases contribute
to the greenhouse effect.
An increase in greenhouse
gases in the atmosphere
means that more heat is

warming. The effects of global

he Industrial Revolution began
in Great Britain in about 1760.
Before this date, Great Britain’s
economy was based on agriculture
and trade. In the years after 1760,
Britain changed to a mechanized
system of production of goods for
export. Steam power and the railways
were among the most important
factors to help increase manufacture
of products and make profit for
ne of the most important
contributions to the first
railways in the United Kingdom
was made by George Stephenson. He was born in 1781 near Newcastle.
His family was poor so he could not go to school. When he was tenyears-old, he began working in a colliery. Stephenson was very clever
and good at inventing machines. He became an engineer at the colliery
where he worked. In 1825, he built a railway from Stockton to Darlington
so that the owners of the colliery
could transport their coal to the
city easily. The locomotive that
Stephenson built for this railway pulled
21 coal wagons on its first journey.
tephenson also built the Liverpool
to Manchester railway which
opened in 1830, and he designed
a train called ‘the Rocket’ to
travel on it. It was the first train
to pull passengers. It also pulled
freight and travelled at a speed of 39
kilometres per hour! Railways quickly
became very successful and helped to
develop trade. They provided a fast
and easy method of transport. Industry became more profitable, freight
arrived in cities faster, and agricultural products got to market quicker
too. George Stephenson changed the face of the civilized world by
pioneering railways and beginning a transport revolution which spread
around the world.

DNA Today
FAQ 1:Why is DNA evidence important?
In 1988, Colin Pitchfork was convicted of the murders of two
teenage girls in Leicestershire, England. He was the first criminal
to be caught as a result of DNA evidence linking him to the crime.
Now DNA forensics is a very important tool in law enforcement.
It can help to convict suspects like Pitchfork, but it can also help
to free people who are wrongly accused of crimes they didn’t
FAQ 2:What exactly is DNA?
DNA stands for deoxyribonucleic acid. DNA is made up of two
strands of molecules that form a long, twisting chain called a
double helix.
These molecules are composed of four main chemical
compounds called nucleotides, which form two sets of pairs.
Approximately 3 million base pairs of DNA vary from person to
person, making the DNA of each individual unique, unless you
have an identical twin.
Your DNA is a combination of the DNA of both your parents.
Twenty-three chromosomes from each parent combine to make
diploid cells. These cells form the complete set of genes, or the
genome, of a fertilized egg.

What do you think?
Do you think DNA evidence is always reliable?
Can you think of other ways in which DNA can be
used by police or scientists?
FAQ 3:How can DNA help solve crimes?
In order to solve a crime using DNA, investigators have to do
three things: first they collect DNA at the crime scene and
from the suspect (DNA can be extracted from almost any
tissue, including hair, fingernails, bones, teeth, and body fluids);
investigators then analyze the DNA to create a DNA profile;
finally, they compare the profiles to see if they match.
Many countries store DNA profiles in databases. The most
commonly used database in the USA is CODIS (Combined
DNA Index System) which is maintained by the FBI and contains
more than 3,500,000 profiles. Databases help investigators solve
cases where the person who committed the crime is unknown
and only a DNA sample is obtained from the scene.
FAQ 4:Will the police use DNA more widely in the future?
Until recently, DNA evidence was used mainly to investigate
violent crimes such as murder and rape, but this is changing.
In the USA, the Justice Department is running an experimental
programme in five cities using DNA evidence to solve smaller
crimes, like house break-ins and car thefts. Police officers are
being trained in new methods of evidence collection and are
learning how to collect DNA samples at the scene of a crime.

4 You can download any site you like in Chinese

5 It is illegal to start a ‘weblog’ in China unless it is
6 In the UK you must not express political views online.
The Internet is used globally for work, leisure,
education, and business. One country where
Internet usage is rapidly increasing is China,
where more than 100 million people are
connected to the web. Only the USA has more
Internet users than that.
The country’s economic boom means that more
Chinese people can afford to buy computers,
although more than 25% of computer users still
rely on Internet cafés to surf the net. Internet
use is changing the way that the Chinese learn
about the world.
However, the Internet in China is carefully
controlled. The Chinese government blocks many
websites, particularly those which it considers
sexually explicit or politically contentious. Other
websites which are restricted include religious
sites, health sites, and news sites.
Why is the Internet so restricted in China? One
suggestion is that it is a threat to the power of
the governing Communist Party. People can say
what they like on the Internet. They can criticise
and challenge the government, publish their
own opinions, and exchange views with other
people. This weakens both the government’s
monopoly over the media and its control over
the people.
In response to this threat, the government has
tried to control what people read and write on
the web. It has created a long list of regulations
for users, censored particular websites, and
introduced an advanced system of filters.
Technology called a ‘firewall’ prevents users from
getting unauthorized information.
Many Internet providers and Internet cafés
employ people to monitor the material on chat
rooms and on websites, and delete anything
‘dangerous’. Personal websites or ‘weblogs’ must
be registered and web users who create illegal
sites or break the Internet laws can be arrested,
fined, or even imprisoned.
Other countries such as Iran, Tunisia, Saudi Arabia,
and Singapore use similar systems of control, and
Internet use is strictly monitored and restricted.
In the USA and most European countries it is
not necessary to register before starting a blog,
and people are allowed to express controversial
views on personal websites.

2r e a d i n g
Read the article about relationships below. Do you agree or disagree with the
writer’s views on love and relationships? Why (not)?
When we face the end of a
relationship or the end of love in
a relationship, most of the time
we view our experience as a
failure. We blame ourselves, or
our partner, or both. Often we feel
sad and depressed. But once we
have recovered from the sadness,
we look for a new love, hoping that
next time the relationship with our
partner won’t fail us or that we
won’t fail the relationship. This
expectation is often unjustified. We
need to fully understand ourselves
and our relationship experiences
to ensure that the ‘failure’ won’t
repeat itself. Changing partners
often doesn’t help us because
we have unrealistic expectations
about love, and expect a single
human being to completely fulfill
all of these ideas to perfection.
For a successful relationship to
work we must make compromises.
Nobody is perfect, and not many
relationships are either!
Analyzing how we think about love,
and how we apply these beliefs
to our real life, can help us in our
own relationships. Philosophy
counselling encourages us to
examine our thoughts from the
different perspective of great
thinkers like Plato, for example.
This can help clarify and adjust our
expectations, and even transform
our views on love.
However, not even famous
philosophers can agree on what
love is, or how to make it work.
Thomas Aquinas wrote ‘Love takes
up where knowledge leaves’, so
perhaps answers can’t be found!

people of any age. Read about Lisa. Is she your ideal partner?
My name’s Lisa. I’m 28 years old and I’m from Manchester. I’ve
been single for a year now and I’m looking for love.
First let me tell you about my job. I’m a journalist on a local
newspaper which means I write stories about local issues and
sometimes I interview politicians. Although I like my job, I’d like
to work on a national newspaper one day. That’s because I want
to have the opportunity to work abroad. I love travelling and
finding out about different cultures.
When I’m not working, I socialize with my friends. I’ve got a
small group of friends who I’ve known for years. I even used
to go to school with some of them! I’m not really extrovert but
I do like going out and having fun. We usually go to parties,
nightclubs, and restaurants. I also like cooking and my family
and friends tell me I make great pasta! My ideal night in is a
good meal, a bottle of wine, and a DVD. I like thrillers much more
than I like romantic comedies!
I’m not very sporty, but I like to keep fit. I go jogging twice a week
and I sometimes go to the gym at weekends. I used to smoke but
I managed to give up last year. I think I eat quite healthily too.
I eat lots of fruit and vegetables and I try to avoid red meat and
too much coffee. If I’m feeling stressed at work, I drink
water – or tea!
I prefer men who are interested in serious issues
because I like talking about politics and what’s
going on around the world. However, I also like
men who make me laugh and who enjoy going
out and having fun. These characteristics are
more important to me than physical
appearance, although I do like dark men

More than 50% of people in
America say walking is their only
form of exercise, and it is never
likely to go out of fashion as a
way of keeping fit. But walking is
becoming something different. If
you spend a day in New York’s
Central Park, you’ll see groups
of people walking past with long
poles in their hands. This is a new
form of exercise called Fittrek.
The best way to train aerobically is to use as many
muscles as possible, so you can exercise for a longer
period of time. Swimming and cross-country skiing are
also very good ways to exercise for this reason, but not
many people can swim for a whole hour – and not many
would want to. That’s why walking is excellent exercise for
beginners – it is very easy to do. It becomes even easier
and better for you when the walkers use poles.
Another good thing about walking is that you do your
exercise outside. Being outside makes you feel good
in winter, and can help reduce stress. When you are
out walking, you should forget about work and the
day’s problems and think about the world around you.
Wherever you are, look at the sky, listen to the sounds,
feel the air on your face. This effect and others can also
be had from running, but walkers are less likely to suffer
an injury. This makes walking better for older people too.
Walking is excellent exercise and you can be sure if you
walk often, you will feel better fast.

I’ve probably been on most types of holiday.
I’ve been walking in the mountains in Nepal,
whale-watching in the Pacific Ocean, scubadiving in the Great Barrier Reef. But for me,
there is nothing on earth like a safari.
In Swahili, which is the everyday language of East Africa, the word safari simply means
going on a journey. But for myself and for explorers and adventurers through the
years, a safari is much more than just a journey.
One of the greatest things about a safari is living in a tent in the wild. These days, with
tourism, the tents are often very large and there are all sorts of luxuries, but the safari
experience is still the same. When you go on a safari, you escape the towns and the cities.
You travel back in time and meet Africa’s most magnificent animals – elephants,
lions, zebras, and the rest.
It doesn’t matter how many wildlife programmes you’ve seen on TV or how many times
you’ve seen lions in a zoo. There’s nothing like seeing the animals living naturally in
I first went on a safari over thirty years ago and I still remember the very first moments
when I arrived. I remember the excitement of flying in a small plane from Nairobi (the
Kenyan capital) to the Masai Mara for the first time. I remember looking down and
feeling surprised at how green the land was. A herd of elephants were standing in the
long green grass and as we flew past they shook their ears. I spotted giraffes,
buffaloes, and baboons as we flew. When we landed and I stepped out into the
bright sunshine and breathed the hot, sweet smell, I knew I would come back
to Africa time and time again.
