American Online is one of the big name on the Internet, and many other digital companies, it actually a profit. But the company which its rivals call the “Cyber-cockroach" launched only in I992. Before that it was a small firm Control Video Corporation, and it made video games. Then Steve Case, a former Pizza Hut marketing executive arrived and took company online. Innovative, fast-moving, and user-friendly, American Online appeals people who want to surf the Internet, but who do not have a lot of experience. For the same reason “techies", people who think they are more expert with computers, look on American Online and its users. Recently, American Online (or AOL, as it calls itself) joined with Time Warner - a multi-million-dollar movie and magazine company - to create a multimedia giant. Now, AOL has begun to expand abroad. In many European countries, including the United Kingdom, it is hard to buy a computer magazine does not have a free AOL introductory offer. The company also puts advertisements onto the television, and employs people to hand its free introductory disks at places like train stations. As the internet gets faster AOL is changing. With many homes getting high-speed through fibre optic cables or the new ADSL technology, the “Cyber-cockroach" will have to show that, like real cockroaches, it can survive in almost any environment.

Complete the following passage by filling the word or phrase that best fits in each blank. 

In recent years, there has been a remarkable increase in happiness. The researchers have come up with a number of factors that contribute to a definition of happiness.

First of all, there is, in some people, a moderate genetic predisposition to be happy, in other words, happiness in families. And happiness seems to correlate quite strongly with the main dimensions of personalities: extroverts are generally happier, neurotics are less so.

Second, people often report good social relations as a reason for their happiness. In particular, friends are a great of joy, partly because of the agreeable things they do together, partly because of the way friends use positive non-verbal such as caressing and touching, to affirm their friendship. Marriage and similar relationships can also form the basis of lasting happiness.

Third, job satisfaction undoubtedly overall satisfaction, and vice versa - perhaps this is why some people are happy in boring jobs: it both ways. Job satisfaction is caused not only by the essential nature of the work but by social interactions with co-workers. Unemployment, on the contrary, can be a serious cause of unhappiness.

Fourth, leisure is important because it is more under individual than most other causes of happiness. Activities sport and music, and participation in voluntary work and social clubs of various kinds can give great joy. This is partly because of the themselves, but also because of the social support of other group members – it is very strong in the case of religious groups.

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

Women in the written history of America

During the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, almost nothing was written about the contributions of women during the colonial period and the early history of the newly formed United States. Lacking the right to vote and absent from the seats of power, women were not considered an important force in history. Anne Bradstreet wrote some significant poetry in the seventeenth century, Mercy Otis Warren produced the best contemporary history of the American Revolution, and Abigail Adams penned important letters showing she exercised great political influence over her husband, John, the second President of the United States. But little or no notice was taken of these contributions. During these centuries, women remained invisible in history books.

Throughout the nineteenth century, this lack of visibility continued, despite the efforts of female authors writing about women. These writers, like most of their male counterparts, were amateur historians. Their writings were celebratory in nature, and they were uncritical in their selection and use of sources.

During the nineteenth century, however, certain feminists showed a keen sense of history by keeping records of activities in which women were engaged. National, regional, and local women’s organizations compiled accounts of their doings. Personal correspondence, newspaper clippings, and souvenirs were saved and stored. These sources from the core of the two greatest collections of women’s history in the United States one at the Elizabeth and Arthur Schlesinger Library at Radcliffe College, and the other the Sophia Smith Collection at Smith College. Such sources have provided valuable materials for later Generations of historians.

 Despite the gathering of more information about ordinary women during the nineteenth century, most of the writing about women conformed to the “great women” theory of History, just as much of mainstream American history concentrated on “great men.” To demonstrate that women were making significant contributions to American life, female authors singled out women leaders and wrote biographies, or else important women produced their autobiographies. Most of these leaders were involved in public life as reformers, activists working for women’s right to vote, or authors, and were not representative at all of the great of ordinary women. The lives of ordinary people continued, generally, to be untold in the American histories being published.
