taste | protein | beneficial | bones | substance | complex

Gelatin is a protein substance that comes from the skins and bones of animals. Most people know it as the used to make a jelly-like salad or dessert. Not only is it useful in making these foods, but it is also to the consumer because of its high content. Gelatin is also commonly used in the photographic industry and in making medicinal capsules.

The process of producing gelatin is a long and one. In the processing of gelatin made from bones (which varies slightly from that of gelatin made from the skin), the fat first must be eliminated. Then the bones are soaked in a solution of hydrochloric acid in order to rid them of minerals and washed several times in water. Next, the bones are placed in distilled water, heated to over 90°F for a few hours, placed in fresh distilled water, and then heated again a little over 100°F. A liquid forms from this heating, and it is concentrated, chilled, and sliced. Finally, it is dried and ground. In its final form, gelatin is white, having no and color.

Read the passage and use NO MORE THAN THREE WORDS AND/OR A NUMBER to answer each question.

Fear Factor: Success and Risk in Extreme Sports

Every year in Pamplona, Spain, hundreds of people run alongside 1,300-pound (600-kilo) bulls, just for the fun of it. And every year at least a few of these people are injured, some seriously. Yet this does not stop people from participating in the event.

What is it that drives some people to embrace extreme risks, while the rest of us run to the safety of the sidelines? Lester Keller, a longtime coach and sports-psychology coordinator for the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association, says that not everyone has the mental character to do best in dangerous activities. He notes that most of us reach a point that limits our desire for extreme risk and as a result, our ability to perform well in dangerous conditions. But others have a much higher tolerance for risk. Take the example of Daron Rahlves, a top U.S. downhill ski racer. "The high element of risk makes you feel alive, tests what you are made of and how far you can take yourself," Rahlves said in a previous interview with U.S. Ski Team staff. "I'm not looking for danger. I'm in it for the challenge, my heart thumping as I finish, the feeling of being alive," he said. "I definitely get scared on some of the courses. It just makes me fight more... That's when I do best." 

The fear that drives many people away from the risks of extreme sports may be the same ingredient that keeps others coming back for more. Mountaineer AI Read has logged many notable first ascents over the course of his climbing career. Having climbed for over 40 years, Read says he no longer pushes to the extremes as he once did - but the feeling is still vivid. "I can remember when I was getting into situations where I thought that at any moment I could be killed," he told National Geographic News. .. I would say, "... I'll never do this again." But we'd get back down, and when we were safe we'd say, "Man was that great!" he recalled. "You forget bow scary it was, and you go back again."

In addition to not being afraid of risks, certain people may perceive risk differently from others. Shane Murphy, a sports psychologist and professor at Western Connecticut State University, has worked with Olympians and other athletes. He says he is struck by the way they redefine risk according to their skills, experience, and environment. He worked with a group climbing Everest without oxygen, which to him was the riskiest thing anyone could do. But the climbers took every precaution to prepare themselves for this climb. As Murphy describes it, "To them it was the next step in an activity that they've done for years. They weren't going out there to get hurt." Murphy said the perspective of extreme athletes is very different from our own. We look at a risky situation and know that if we were in that situation, we would be out of control," he said. "But from the athletes' perspective, they have a lot of control, and there are a lot of things that they do to minimize risk." Statistically, mountain climbing is not as risky as people think it is. Our perceived risk of the sport leaves the majority of us at the bottom of the mountain.

The key aspect of risk perception may be something referred to as "the flow" or "the zone". It is a state in which many athletes describe becoming absorbed in pursuits that focus the mind completely on the present. "Something that makes you begin climbing, perhaps, is that your adrenaline flows and you become very concentrated on what you're doing." Read said. "After it's over there's happiness. You wouldn't have that same feeling if the risk hadn't been there." Psychologists note that some people seem to have a strong craving for adrenaline rushes as a thrill-seeking behavior or personality trait. As a result, these types of people may always be driven to adventures that others consider extreme. "I can enjoy hitting the tennis ball around, because that's my skill level," Murphy said. "But others might need the challenge of Olympic competition."
