Swimming the Atlantic

Who was the first person to swim across the Atlantic Ocean? It was a 31-year-old Frenchman, Benoit Lecomte, a swimmer. After swimming nearly 6,000 kilometers across the Atlantic Ocean, his first words were, ‘Never again!’

Lecomte had trained for six years beforehand and he wanted to raise money for cancer research. He began his record-setting attempt from Massachusetts on July 16, 1998, and had been swimming for 73 days when he finally arrived at Quiberon, in northwest France. Lecomte stopped at the Azores the middle of the Atlantic after from exhaustion. He stayed there for a week to and then completed his amazing swim.

The human body could not survive 24 hours a day for 73 days in the North Atlantic Ocean. That's why Benoit swam for six to eight hours a day. He swam beside his support boat and had to eat 9,000 calories a day to replace those he used up while swimming. He faced sharks, six-meter-high waves, strong winds, and storms. In addition, he had to sea turtles, dolphins, jellyfish and extremely cold water on his way to a place in the record books. Wasn’t that an incredible achievement?

Getting friends and family to pose for photos is hard enough, but how would you cope with a rabbit, an owl or a butterfly that simply to keep still? Simon King, a wildlife filmmaker and photographer, says you don't need any formal to get started. "The whole idea is that photographing wildlife should be fun". Simon offers the following tips. Specialize from the start. You're more likely to get good results sooner if you on the type of wildlife - insects for instance - rather than just going off to the woods or park with your camera and snapping whatever you see. Pick something that isn't hard to photograph. Choosing an animal that's hard to spot or will run away if it sees you create unnecessary problems. How about flowers or a group of birds? Search second-hand camera shops and local papers for quality . You don't need to a fortune. Simon started with just a second-hand camera that cost around $30. But you will need a single-lens reflex camera. Remember it's the whole photograph that counts, nor just the subject. Imagine you're composing a picture and try to be as artistic as possible. 

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

Sometimes people add to what they say even when they don't talk. Gestures are the “silent language” of every culture. We point a finger or move another part of the body to show what we want to say. It is important to know the body language of every country or we may be misunderstood. In the United States, people greet each other with a handshake in a formal introduction. The handshake must be firm. If the handshake is weak, it is a sign of weakness or unfriendliness. Friends may place a hand on the other's arm or shoulder. Some people, usually women, greet a friend with a hug.

Space is important to Americans. When two people talk to each other, they usually stand about two and a half feet away and at an angle, so they are not facing each other directly. Americans get uncomfortable when a person stands too close. They will move back to have their space. If Americans touch another person by accident, they say, “Pardon me.” or "Excuse me." Americans like to look the other person in the eyes when they are talking. If you don’t do so, it means you are bored, hiding something, or are not interested. But when you are staring at someone, it is not polite. For Americans, thumbs-up means yes, very good, or well done. Thumbs down mean the opposite. To call a waiter, raise one hand to head level or above. To show you want the check, make a movement with your hands as if you are signing a piece of paper. It is all right to point at things but not at people with the hand and index finger. Americans shake their index finger at children when they scold them and pat them on the head when they admire them. Learning a culture's body language is sometimes confusing. If you don't know what to do, the safest thing to do is to smile.

  • gestures don't mean anything while talking
