Can you hear the lights? 

If you're ever witnessed the Northern Lights dancing in the night sky, you'll no doubt have been amazed by their beauty. These strange natural light displays are caused by atmospheric energy, and a recent study has indicated that not only are they pretty to look at, they may also produce certain distinct sounds. Researchers studying the phenomenon believe they have managed to capture the sounds. 

The Northern Lights appear most powerfully in Arctic , where there have been tales told about the noises which them for many years. People describe hearing hissing and crackling sounds, like the noises you hear when your radio is searching for a signal.

Have you ever thought about the names of the months? Why are “January” and “February” not called “Primo” or “Secondo”? Is it because the original names were created in ancient times? Or is it because the originators preferred odd words?

Take February, for example. Say it aloud a few minutes and you start to wonder. Most people don’t know who developed these names. However, a little research reveals that the names of the months came mostly from a combination of the names of Roman gods and goddesses, important festivals, and the original numbers of the months.

Julius Caesar and Pope Gregory XIII change the calendar to make it more exact. Caesar developed a new calendar of 364 and a quarter days, the time it takes the earth to orbit the sun from one spring season to the next. The Pope’s astronomers refined the calendar regarding leap years; they determined that there should be no leap year in years ending in 00- unless they were divisible by 400; the years 1700, 1800, 1900 and 2100 would not be considered leap years, while the years 1600 and 2000 would be. This new Gregorian calendar was so accurate that today, scientists need only add leap seconds every few years to the clock in order to keep the calendar matching the Earth’s cycles.

Read the following passage then choose the best answer to each question below.

These days, it is easy for most of us to get a hold of the latest books or magazines. We can go to bookstores, order them through the Internet, or borrow them from the local library. Now imagine having to walk miles and miles through a hot sandy desert just to borrow a book. This is the reality for people living in the villages of the Carissa region of Kenya in East Africa.
 
In 1996, librarian Wycliffe Oluoch used to spend each day waiting for people to come to borrow some of the 24,000 books in his library in Carissa. The library had no shortage of books, but people weren't coming to read them. It was too much effort to walk through the desert just to borrow books. Oluoch racked his brain for ways to persuade people into the library. After a lot of thought, he hit upon a great idea. If people wouldn't come to the library, then he would have to take the library to them. Oluoch strapped boxes of books onto the backs of camels and created the Mobile Camel Library.
 
Starting three camels in 1996, but more recently expanding the service to six camels, the Mobile Camel Library serves over one million people. Twice a month, the camel library can be seen carrying books all around the Carissa region. These hard-working animals need little water and can carry up to 500 pounds of books across the sands. A librarian, a library assistant, a herdsman, and a lookout all travel with the camels. The lookout helps protect the books from thieves.
 
The children of Carissa love the camel library and appreciate Oluoch's effort. Eleven-year-old Mohamud Mohamed reads his library books carefully and returns them on time. He knows the Camel Library punishes people for losing books, just like any other library. However, the punishment is very stiff compared to that of other libraries. If a village loses a book, the Camel Library stops visiting.

  • Wycliffe Oluoch is a smart man.
