Have you ever got really caught up in the excitement and emotion of a good film, and wondered in amazement how film stars manage to perform (danger) acts like jumping off building or driving at great speed? Of course, it is only a momentary feeling as it is no secret that the real (perform) are almost invariably stuntmen or women, who can earn a very good (live) by standing in for the stars when necessary. The work is (incredible) demanding, and before qualifying for this job they have to undergo a rigorous training program and (proof) their ability in a number of sports including skiing, riding and gymnastics.

Naturally, the (safe) of the stunt performer is of the utmost importance. Much depends on the performer getting the timing exactly right so everything is planned down to the (tiny) detail. In a scene which involves a complicated series of actions, there is no time for (care) mistake. A stunt man or woman often has only one chance of getting things right, (like) film stars, who can, if necessary, film a scene (repeat) until it gains the director’s approval.

Dear Jodi, 

Sorry I haven’t been in touch with you for such a long time, but it’s been a few busy months. Earlier this year, I received good news that my great-aunt had given me a cottage. Apart seeing her a couple of times at my parents’ house, I didn’t really know her. When I saw the cottage, I just fell in love with it. It’s close to a beautiful little village, and looks out the sea. My great-aunt used it as a holiday home, and I’ve decided to do the same. Unfortunately, it’s been badly looked , so I’ve had to spend most weekends this year sorting the place out.

I knew it was need of some work, and at first I thought I could get away with giving it a quick coat of paint. But I soon realized it was much a bigger job. There were holes in the roof, and the window frames were so rotten, some of the panes of glass were in danger of falling out.

I was walking around the village on Saturday, wondering what best to do, when who should I run but Barney Adams. Do you remember him from school? As luck would have it, he now works in the village as a builder and decorator. We got talking, and he said he’d come over and look at the house.

Naturally, I took him up his offer! He got really enthusiastic about it. He talked me into replacing all the windows, and he’s put in a new central heating system in place the old coal fires. I’ve had to prevent him extending the kitchen, which he was keen to do! He’s checked the roof out and fortunately, that doesn’t need replacing. Thanks to Barney, the house is now looking brilliant, and comparison with other builders, he doesn’t charge very much.

The next project for me is to clean the mess in the garden, as it’s completely overgrown. If you want to come over and help me sometimes, feel free ! You’ll always be very welcome. 

Love,

Emily.

We all wish we could remember things more easily, but sometimes we can’t remember, anything at all. What you do in this situation? one day you woke up and discovered that you had completely lost your memory. How would you feel exactly? I had to face up to this recently after I fell off my bikes and hit my head. I woke up in hospital, and a doctor asked me what my name was, I thought about it a moment and then said, “I wish I !” Then I tried to get up and said, “It’s time I was at college!” “I’d you didn’t do that,” said the doctor. “If you move too much, you probably fall over. I’m going to give you and injection. I it doesn’t hurt too much!” “I you hadn’t said that,” I replied. “Now I’m really worried !” Then I noticed a label on my wrist with my name on it. If I not noticed this, I wouldn’t have known who I was! When my memory came back a few hours later, I realized I had a maths test the next day! If I had lost my memory for a little bit longer!

Read the article about environment problems in Australia. Choose headings for the paragraphs from the expressions in the box below. There are some extra ones.

[ Coastal erosion | Overfishing | Invasive species | Urban development | Nuclear accidents | Deforestation | Intensive agriculture | Waste treatment | Overgrazing | Oil spills ]

When large numbers of trees are cut down, the salinity of the soil can greatly increase. Salt water draining from such areas can affect downstream water quality.

Pasture mismanagement is one of the main pressures on biodiversity. The unsuitable use of grazed pasture without giving plants time to recover has modified vast areas of grasslands. This kind of continued defoliation has led to desertification and erosion.

Australia's fisheries are already close to collapse because of this activity, and the problem is getting worse. There are two major factors which account for the problem: slow regeneration of marine populations and depletion of fish stocks by commercial over-exploitation.

It is estimated that Australia gains around 20 new pets each year. Examples include cane toads, willows and more recently, red fire ants. Historically, feral cats and foxes have been a cause of local extinctions and reductions in range for native species through a combination of habitat modification and predation. Weeds are an equally significant pressure on ecosystems, with more than 2500 species of introduced plants now thriving in the wild in Australia. They have invaded every part of the landscape.

Bio-intensive farming is affecting Australia’s coasts and oceans, particularly estuaries and environments near the shore. Estimates are that each year almost 19 000 tons of phosphorus and 141 000 tons of nitrogen are discharged into rivers flowing to the coast.

Of continuing concern for Australia is population growth along the country's coastline. The formation of massive metropolitan centers with intensive population density on Australia’s coast could displace much valuable biodiversity and “high-value” agriculture land.
