The Virtual Assistant

Personal assistants (PAs) are no more common. They have been replaced with a much more version called virtual assistants (VAs). VAs do not work in big city offices or dress in black business suits. Nor do they work exclusively for one boss. VAs work from home and may help to run the lives of up to 30 business people simultaneously. They are self - employed and by the hour, which allows great flexibility on both sides. VAs have more equality than PAs - they have customers rather than bosses.

There are a few disadvantages to the job: you work alone all day and so have no colleagues to chat over coffee and you can the social interaction. But on the plus side no day is ever the same. There is no boring routine or rigid and the variety of jobs you might be asked to do means it is never . Clients who employ VAs benefit from being able to outsource. Their VAs can do the tasks they don't have time to do: typing, filing, flights, uploading a blackberry and ever talking to clients. VAs are perfect for the self-employed and small businesses, they don't need an annual and can be for one-off days or weeks.

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

In this era of increasing and diminishing fossil fuel supplies, we must begin to put a greater priority on harnessing alternative energy sources. Fortunately, there are many readily available, renewable resources that are both cost-effective and earth-friendly. Two such resources are solar and geothermal power.

Solar energy, which reaches the earth through sunlight, is so abundant that it could meet the needs of worldwide energy consumption 6,000 times over. And solar energy is easily harnessed through the use of photovoltaic cells converting sunlight to electricity. In the US alone, more than 100,000 homes are equipped with solar electric systems in the form of solar panels or solar roof tiles. And in other parts of the world, the use of solar system is growing steadily.

Another alternative energy source is geothermal power which creates energy trapping heat from below the surface of the earth. Hot water and steam that are trapped in underground pools are pumped to the surface and used to run a generator, which produces electricity. Geothermal energy is 5,000 times more abundant than the entire known supply of fossil fuel sources and as with solar power, the technology needed to utilize geothermal energy is fairly simple. A prime example of effective geothermal use is Iceland, a region of high geothermal activity where there are over 80 percent of private homes heated by geothermal power.

Solar and geothermal energy sources are just two of the promising renewable alternatives to conventional energy sources. The time is long overdue to invest in the development and use of alternative energy on global scale.

What is the main topic of this passage?

  • The benefits of solar and wind power over conventional energy sources.
  • Two types of alternative energy sources that should be further utilized.
  • How energy resources are trapped from nature.
  • Examples of the use of energy sources worldwide.

What best describe the author’s purpose in writing the passage?

  • To warn about the hazard of fossil fuel use.
  • To inform people of the benefits of developing alternative energy sources.
  • To describe the advantages and disadvantages of alternative energy use.
  • To outline the problems and solutions connected with global warming.

According to the passage, how is solar energy production similar to geothermal energy production?

  • They both require the use of a generator.
  • They both use heat from the earth's surface.
  • They both require fairly simple technology.
  • They are both conventional and costly.

According to the passage, which of the following statements is TRUE about solar power?

  • There is very little of it available in Iceland.
  • It is being used in 100,000 private homes worldwide.
  • it is 6,000 times more powerful than the energy needs of the world.
  • There is enough of it to far exceed the energy needs of the world.

What does the word “which” in paragraph 3 refer to?

  • An alternative energy resource
  • A machine for generating electricity
  • Geothermal power
  • The use of photovoltaic cells

What can be inferred from the use of geothermal energy in Iceland?

  • It is the widely used form of energy for heating homes.
  • Twenty percent of the geothermal energy generated is used to heat the cath.
  • It is not effective for use in private homes.
  • It is 80 times more effective than traditional forms of fuel use.

The word “conventional” in paragraph 4 can be replaced by _______.

  • optimistic
  • traditional
  • effective
  • abundant

It is stated in the passage that ______

  • an increased number of countries are using solar energy.
  • the heat coming from inside the earth can be utilized almost everywhere on earth.
  • only solar energy is environmentally friendly.
  • geothermal heat can provide 80% of power needs in Iceland.

You are going to read a magazine article about marathon running. Seven sentences have been removed from the article. Choose from the sentences A - H which fits each gap (1-7). There is one extra sentence which you do not need to me.

A. He argues that after 16-29 miles, you have to slow down and running gets really hard.

B. After a quick top-up of water and a rest, most go home and make a full recovery.

C. When it comes to marathon running, however, the experts are divided.

D. In spite of this, marathon running is bad for your health.

E. But this weakening effect on the system is short-lived.

F. Within a couple of months, however, she was managing two or three miles.

G. This is because running halves your risk of getting heart disease.

H. She started by running to the shops, wearing an anorak and carrying her shopping bag.


If ever there was living proof that marathon running keeps you fit, Jenny Wood Allen from Dundee is it. . She was 71 and she did not even have proper training shoes then.

At first, she could only run to the end of her avenue, which is about three quarters of a mile. She had problems getting back and had to either take a bus or ask somebody for a lift. .

Scientifically speaking, human beings are perfectly tuned for jumping and running and walking long distances. . One of them, Professor Craig Sharp, says that if you are reasonably fit, you can probably run for two hours at a medium pace and feel OK. At this point, your muscles run out of glycogen - the best source of energy we have. This means you start using fat for energy, and your body has to work harder to transform fat into energy. This happens at a time when you are starting to feel exhausted. . All this is proof - he believes - that the body isn’t designed for long-distance running.

Other specialists have a very different opinion. Dr. Percy Brown said that if you train sensibly and prepare several months in advance, it could even help you live longer. . He believes the only problem you may have when running a marathon is exhaustion or a small injury caused by falling or tripping over things. . Only 1 in 1,000 actually makes it to hospital.

Another problem may be post-race marathon. Surveys show most runners are much more likely to catch colds or develop chest infections in the week after running a race. . There is no evidence of lasting disease or an increased risk of illness. At 87, Jenny Wood Allen will be doing the London marathon for the 13th time this Sunday. And she plans to go on taking part for many years to come.
