What a load of rubbish!!

It's difficult to believe that after years of people working hard to fight pollution and take action the environment, we still have a long way to go before we succeed.

Oceanographers have discovered a huge ‘plastic soup’ from rubbish floating in the Pacific Ocean. This island of rubbish has been growing slowly for over 60 years and is now so big. It goes from California to Hawaii and nearly to Japan. It everything you could imagine, from plastic bags to children's toys and even plastic swimming pools!

The ‘Great Garbage Patch’ as it's sometimes called, causes lots of problems. One of is the chemicals it produces in the sea. These chemicals and small pieces of plastic are now appearing in fish, and obviously, this means the plastic-filled fish could get into our dinner plates!

It’s not all bad news . At the moment, a conversation group is investigating if the 100 million tons of waste can be turned into fuel and used in a positive way.

Let’s hope they take action on the ‘plastic soup’ now before it gets any bigger!

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

According to airline industry statistics, almost 90 percent of airline accidents are survivable or partially survivable. But passengers can increase their chances of survival by learning and following certain tips. Experts say that you should read and listen to safety instructions before take off and ask questions if you have uncertainties. You should fasten your seat belt low on your hips and as tightly as possible. Of course, you should also know how the release mechanism of your belt operates. During takeoffs and landings, you are advised to keep your feet flat on the floor. Before take-off, you should locate the nearest exit and an alternative exit and count the rows of seats between you and the exits so that you can reach them in the dark if necessary. In the event that you are forewarned of a possible accident, you should put your hands on your ankles and keep your head down until the planes come to a complete stop. If smoke is present in the cabin, you should keep your head low and cover your face with napkins, towels, or clothing. If possible, wet these for added protection against smoke inhalation. To evacuate as quickly as possible, follow crew commands and do not take personal belongings with you. Do not jump on escape slides before they are fully inflated, and when you jump, do so with your arms and legs extended in front of you. When you get to the ground, you should move away from the plane as quickly as possible, and smoke near the wreckage.

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

Raising a Child Athlete 

In many countries, children with sporting potential are identified early and encouraged to achieve athletic greatness by training for hours every day. While some people see this as a great opportunity for kids to be healthy, others argue that too much focus on training can hurt young people. How parents should raise child athletes has become a big topic of their debate.

People who are against such serious commitment to sport say that there are many negatives to training so intensively. Here are some of their arguments:

  • The long hours spent training can distant the child from his or her family.
  • Athletes who spend too much time training miss out on education. The child may not be prepared for other real world activities, such as going to college and having a non-athletic job.
  • Pressure from parents and coaches to win can be psychologically damaging for the child. Parents may also become too pushy and end up caring more about athletic achievements than the child.

Dr. Christine Carr, a psychologist, suggests that parents take some important steps to make sure that their kids are getting the most out of sports. Carr says that the focus should be on the child’s happiness and about learning life lessons. Self-discipline, determination, and learning to deal with failure are some of the important life skills and lessons kids can learn from sports. Other experts point to the importance of letting children make their own decisions. Top athletes Tiger Woods and Michael Phelps have said that they appreciated their parents letting them decide how much or how little they wanted to train. In fact, according to Phelps’ mother, he had trouble focusing in the classroom until he found a sport that he was passionate about. By allowing Michael to focus on his sport, his mother also saw him improve as a student.

Another thing that many parents and doctors agree on is the importance of developing a close relationship with the family. Dr. Carr suggests eating dinner together and says it is a simple way to remind children that family is important, and that support can always be found at home. Woods and Phelps both had supportive families and made it public, with parents attending their many competitions.

Raising an athlete is not easy. By balancing life and training, parents can set their children up for success and help them become winners in sports and in life.

  • It should be avoided.
  • It happens when athletes don't train hard enough.
