Proof that silence is golden for studying
 
The combination of music and study has long been a source of disagreement between adults and children. Parents and teachers alike maintain that silence is important when learning, youngsters insist that their favorite sounds help them concentrate.
 
Now a study that the grown-ups have been all long. Psychologists in Florida tested how fast students wrote essays with and without music in the . They found that the sounds slowed progress down by about sixty words per hour. "This demonstrates clearly that it is difficult to with listening and writing at the same time," said Dr. Sarah Randall. She also  to the conclusion that it is a myth that instrumental music is less distracting than vocals. "All types of music the same effect," she said in her report. "One's ability to pay attention and write fluently is likely to be by both vocal and instrumental music," she added.
 
Dr. Randall claimed the research demonstrated that the idea that music could improve performance was wrong. "Writing an essay is a complex . You are recalling information and putting it in . An additional stimulus in the form of music is bound to distract. But music is not the only distractor. What is worrying is that more and more teenagers are studying in front of the television.

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.

Dealing with waste plastic

Every year people throw million tons of plastic bottles, boxes, and wrapping. These create huge mountains of waste that are extremely hard to get of. Now a new recycling process promises to reduce this problem by turning old plastic new.

Scientists have taken long time to develop their ideas because waste plastic has always been a bigger problem than substances like waste paper. You can bury plastic, but it takes many years to break down. If you burn it, it just becomes another form of pollution. A products, for example, bottles, can be re-used, but it is expensive or difficult to do this with a lot of plastic products.  

Now a group of companies has developed a new method recycling that could save almost plastic waste. Nearly every type of waste plastic can be used: it does have to be sorted. In addition, labels and ink may be left the products. Everything is simply mixed together and heated to more than 400 degrees centigrade that it melts. It is then cooled, producing a waxy substance that can be used to make new plastic products, including computer hardware.
