Read the following passage and choose the correct answer to each of the questions.

  Mandatory volunteering made many members of the Maryland high school class of 1997 rumble with indignation. They didn’t like a new requirement that made them take part in the school’s community service program.

  Future seniors, however, won’t be as resistant now that the program has been broken in. Some, like John Maloney, already have completed their required hours of approved community service. The Bowie High School sophomore earned his hours in eighth grade by volunteering two nights a week at the Larkin-Chase Nursing and Restorative Center in Bowie. He played shuffleboard, cards, and other games with the senior citizens. He also helped plan parties for them and visited their rooms to keep them company. That experience inspired him to continue volunteering in the community.

  John, 15, has not finished volunteering. Once a week he videotapes animals at the Prince George County animal shelter in Forestville. His footage is shown on the Bowie public access television channel in hopes of finding homes for the animals. “Volunteering is better than just sitting around,” says John, “and I like animals, I don’t want to see them put to sleep.”

  He’s not the only volunteer in his family. His sister, Melissa, an eighth grader, has completed her hours also volunteering at Larkin-Chase. “It is a good idea to have kids go out into the community, but it’s frustrating to have to write essays about the work,” she said. “ It makes you feel like you are doing it for the requirement and not for yourself.” 

The high school service learning office, run by Beth Ansley, provides information on organizations seeking volunteers so that students will have an easier time fulfilling their hours. “It’s ridiculous that people are opposing the requirements,” said Amy Rouse, who this summer has worked at the Ronald McDonald House and has helped to rebuild a church in Clinton. “So many people won’t do the service unless it’s mandatory,” Rouse said, “but once they start doing it, they’ll really like it and hopefully it will become a part of their lives - like it has become a part of mine.”

What is the main idea of the passage?

  • She no longer volunteers at Larkin-Chase as she hates writing essays.
  • She helps out at Larkin-Chase because it is a requirement of her course.

Read the following passage and choose the correct word or phrase that best fits each of the blanks.

  The fictitious androids written about in the mid-1900s are becoming a reality with advances in the field of robotics. Japan and Korea have been pioneers in this field. They regularly compete to be the first. The focus of most researchers is in life-like, attractive female androids. A Japanese research group led by Hiroshi Ishiguro created the world’s first female android, which is called Actroid in 2003. The early model was limited so upgrades were made and the dramatic entertainment model was released in 2006. Actroids are covered with a silicone skin and have built-in sensors making them of reacting to humans, and they can also mimic many human behaviors. , they can be programmed to speak in any language. The Korean android, EveR-2, released in 2006, was designed by a team from Kitech. They claim that she is more life-like than Actroids, and she can mimic emotions. She can also speak and move her lips to match her . Future models are expected to have higher mobility and even be proficient in dancing. Research teams have also created male androids. One in particular is the Geminoid HI-1. Regardless of the competition, it’s clear that this technology will one day present us the dilemma of determining human from machine.

Read the following passage and choose the correct answer.

  Less than a year ago marketing director, David Smith, 33 was behaving like a secret agent. He used to secretly taped all his conversations, he refused to sign his name and he would as his secretary to check all his emails. Anything he wrote was photocopied and kept as “evidence”. But David isn’t mad, or even mildly eccentric. He suffers from “responsibility OCD”, one of the more common forms of obsessive-compulsive disorder, or OCD, as it is usually known.

  OCD is now recognized as the second most prevalent mental-health problem, after depression - and the number of reported cases is soaring. Experts estimate that 2% - 3% of the population suffer from the full-blown syndrome, with as many as one in five suffering from a milder form.

  OCD sufferers are tortured by obsessional thoughts, such as worrying that their hands are contaminated by germs. The terrible anxiety is only relieved by performing a particular set of behaviors. Unfortunately, any sense of relief is short-lived, which is why the behavior must be repeated again and again. OCD sufferers know their behavior is irrational, yet feel powerless to stop.

  Common treatments are either antidepressants or behavioral therapy with a psychologist, but only 60% of patients show some improvement. However, a new treatment from America is bringing fresh hop to sufferers.

  One of the OCD gurus and neuropsychiatrists, Jeffrey Schwartz, has designed the Four Steps program which employs meditation techniques with the aim of teaching sufferers to manage their symptoms by themselves. “The goal is to learn to override false brain messages,” explained Schwartz.

  There are different theories about what causes the disorder. Most experts recognize a genetic element that can be triggered by a stressful event. Schwartz believes that the OCD “worry circuit” is a direct result of faulty brain chemistry. “When someone experiences an OCD thought, one part of the brain knows quite clearly that the hands are not dirty,” explains Schwartz. “Some part of the brain is standing apart from the symptoms, reflecting on the sheer bizarreness of it all. The objective is to harness this impartial spectator so that patients can use this healthy part of their brain to resist the compulsions.”

  David Smith is delighted with the results of Schwartz’s treatment. “Now I can sign cheques without a problem,” he says brightly. “And I don’t photocopy them either. OCD used to feel like a hug stigma, but I don’t feel handicapped by it anymore. You just deal with it.”
