A Working Vacation

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to get your dream job? It can take years to get the education and develop the skills you need for the perfect job. However, there is a way to experience your dream job without having to get the required training or degree. Since 2004, Brian Kurth’s company, Vocation Vacations, has been connecting people with mentors who have the jobs of their dreams.

Kurth had been working for a phone company before starting his own company. He didn’t like the job and he had a long time to think about it on his drive to and from work. He also thought about his dream job while driving. He was interested in becoming a dog trainer, but he didn’t want to take any chances and switch to a field he didn’t have experience in. He really wanted to know what the job was like and if it was realistic for him to work towards his goal. So, he found a mentor - a dog trainer that could tell him about the job and everything it involved. After that, he helped his friends find mentors to explore jobs they were interested in. They thought it was helpful to talk to people who had their dream jobs before spending lots of time and money getting the training they need for the jobs.

Kurth saw how much this helped his friends, so he decided to turn it into a business. He started Vocation Vacations in 2004, and by 2005, the company was offering experiences with over 200 dream jobs. Today, about 300 mentors work with the company to share their knowledge about their jobs. Customers pay to experience the job of their dreams and work with these mentors to see what a job is really like. A “job vacation” costs between $350 and $3,000 and can be for one to three days. Many people use Vocation Vacations to see if their dream jobs is a career path they want to continue. Others do it just to experience the job of their dreams one time.

Vocation Vacations jobs are in the fields of fashion, food, entertainment, sports, and animals. Many people want to try glamorous jobs. For example, they want to try working as actors, music producers, photographer, and fashion designers. According to Kurth, some other popular dream jobs are working as bakers, hotel managers, and wedding planners.

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

Scientists have identified two ways in which species disappear. The first is through ordinary or ‘background’ extinctions, where species that fall to adopt are slowly replaced by more adaptable life forms. The second is when large numbers of species go to the wall in relatively short periods of biological time. There have been five such extinctions, each provoked by cataclysmic evolutionary events caused by some geological eruption, climate shift, or space junk slamming into the earth. Scientist now believes that another mass extinction of species is currently underway - and this time human fingerprints are on the trigger.

How are doing it? Simply by demanding more and more space for ourselves. In our assault on the ecosystems around us, we have used a number of tools, from spear and gun to bulldozer and chainsaw. Certain especially rich ecosystems have proved the most vulnerable. In Hawaii, more than half of the native birds are now gone - some 50 species. Such carnage has taken place all across the island communities of the Pacific and Indian oceans. While many species were hunted to extinction, others simply succumbed to the ‘introduced predators’ that humans brought with them: the cat, the dog, the pig, and the rat.

Today the tempo of extinction is picking up speed. Hunting is no longer the major culprit, although rare birds and animals continue to be butchered for their skin, feathers, tusks, and internal organs, or taken as cage pets. Today the main threat comes from the destruction of the habitat that wild plants, animals, and insects need to survive. The draining and damming of wetland and river courses threatens the aquatic food chain and our own seafood industry. Overfishing and the destruction of fragile coral reefs destroy ocean biodiversity. Deforestation is taking a staggering foll, particularly in the tropics where the most global biodiversity is at risk. The shrinking rainforest cover of the Congo and Amazon river basins and such place as Borneo and Madagascar have a wealth of species per hectare existing nowhere else. As those precious hectares are drowned or turned into arid pasture and cropland, such species disappear forever.

What does the passage mainly discuss?

  • Human activity and its impact on a mass extinction of species
  • The two ways in which species disappear
  • The tempo of extinction of species today
  • Deforestation as a major cause of mass extinction of species

It is true that keeping fit will benefit a person’s health in many ways. It has become clear in recent years, that a large number of people are doing less and less exercise and this is now causing many serious diseases, putting a strain on doctors and hospitals. However, some experts believe that too much exercise can do just as much .

Although it is true that moderate exercise such as walking can be very beneficial to a person’s health, it is not the only one-factor keeps us healthy. Diet is also extremely important and I would argue that it is probably even more important than exercise, although the ideal is for both of these factors to work together, it seems to me that many people are unwilling to put in the effort required to become fitter. , too much exercise can also cause problems. So people are urged to take moderate exercise and eat moderately healthy rather than embarking on extreme diets and training. In too many instances, ultra-fit people have had heart attacks or dropped down dead.

In all, governments need to find ways of people to take responsibility for their own health. People need to realize that eating healthy food does not have to cost a , nor is it difficult to prepare healthy meals themselves. People need to be better educated about their health.
