Ie’ a shame we both got angry because instead of defending our viewpoints constructively, cour positions became more extreme. So I'l ry and argue my point more calmly, and hopefully we can put the argument behind us! Essentially, what I wanted to say was that its important to keep an open mind. You argue that science can explain everything. But while I admit that science plays a vital role in our understanding of the world, don't you think ita litle arrogant 10 say that science has all the answers? Surely even scientists recognise that they work with theories, not absolute truths. ‘The Big Bang isa case in point. You claim this is fact. But wouldn't i be more accurate to say that ies the theory that best fits current observations? Afterall, our understanding of the universe has changed dramatically over the years and might change again. And even ifthe Big Bang is correct, can scientists explain what came before it? If not, isn’t there room for other ways of explaining how the universe was created? A for the general suspicion towards science in the media, I take your point about that, and T can see why you find i frustrating, What I meant to say on Saturday was that this suspicion is probably dae to the difficulty that many people have in understanding complex scientific theories!

Parents & Children Destructive names Arlene, Bret, Cindy, Don, Emily and Franklin may sound like the names of a group of friends, but the names have a more destructive significance. They are, in fact, the first names on the list of hurricane names for 201 ‘The names of hurricanes are chosen from a lst selected by the World Meteorological Organisation. Each name on thelist starts with a different letter. The name of the first hrurricane of the season starts with the letter A, the next with the letter B, the next with the letter C and so on. The letters Q, U, X,¥ and Z are not used for Adantic Ocean hurricanes because there aren’t many names that start with those letters. For Atlantic ‘Ocean hurricanes, the names can be French, Spanish or English, since these are the major languages ofthe countries on the Atlantic Ocean in the areas where hhurricanes occur, Hurricanes are given names because they help o identify storms as they move across the ocean, They also reduce confusion when two or more tropical storms occur at the For hundreds of years, hurricanes in the West Indies were named after the saint's day fon which the hurricane occurred. It was in 1953 that the US National Weather Service began using names for storms. At first only female names were used, but in 1979 they started using both male and female names. Today the names of hurricanes alternate between male and femal. “There are six lists of names for the Atlantic, and one lis is used each year. Every sixth year the first list begins again.

The I city is Belfast and the population is approximately 1,775,000. That's between a quarter and a third of the island's total population. ‘There are lots of magical places to visitin Northern Ireland. One of the most famous is the Giant's Canseway on the north coast. The causeway consists of around 40,000 columns formed by ancient voleanic eruptions. There’ a legend that the Causeway might have been built by Finn McCool, a giant who was the commander of the king of Ireland’s armies. Ics said thac he built the causeway in order to walk across the sea to Scotland. Northern Ireland is famous for its legends and storytellers. The writer CS Lewis was born there. Near his East Belfast birthplace there's a life-size sculpture showing 2 figure stepping through the magi wardrobe into Lewis’ Kingdom of Namia. Nobel Laureate poet and author Seamus Heaney was born on a farm near Bellaghy, and ‘writers Oscar Wilde and Samuel Beckett both lived in the town of Enniskillen as schoolboys. Another of Northern Ireland's claims to fame is its history of shipbuilding. The world’ most famous ship, the Titanic, vas built here in 1911, You can take a trip to see where the ship was created or walk the Titanic Trail around Belfast. While the euro is the currency in the rest of Ireland, the British pound is used in Northern Irelend. Most large shops accept the euro as well, but its best to ask first.

Some people say we used to have a healthier dict in the past and that modern diets do us no good. But is that crue? T'm old enough to remember when the fist supermarkets appeared in the 1950s and 60s. Until then the food we used to eat was produced nationally. We had three meals a day and we usualy ate the same food each week. ‘As more people started to travel in the 1970s people became more interested in food from other counties. Suddenly we could eat pizzas, fresh pasta, French bread and American ice cream. In the 80s, more people were living alone so the supermarkets started selling more ready-cooked frozen, meals. People didn’t wane to spend time cooking. It was the decade of the microwave meal “The 90s was the decade in which breakfast almost disappeared. Although it’s often called the most important ‘meal of the day, nearly one in three adults would stop having breakfast at home. In the first decade of the 21* century we stopped buying so much frozen food, but bought more freshly prepared ‘meals to eat while we watched cookery programmes on television. ‘Today fewer people have three meals a day. More and more people have snacks throughout the day: a sandwich, a chocolate bar, some erisps. We're also less active than. we used to be. When you take these factors into account, I think our diet today is probably just as healthy, or rather, just as unhealthy coday as it was in the 1950s, Pronunciation 1 He won't be late.

Now, Mandy, you went out on the streets to ask people about their choices 1 Yes, thats right. Iwondered if everyone would say Sherlock Holmes, Miss Marple and Hercule Poirot were the greatest detectives ever, or if they'd have some more unusual choices. ‘x What did you discover? Well, o be honest, most people did choose Sherlock Holmes. When I asked them why, they all said it was because of his powers of deduction and his unusual character ‘x: What other detectives did they choose? 2b, Detective Inspector Rebus was a popular choice. As you now, he was created by the Scottish author Ian Rankin. ‘A: That’ interesting, Any female detectives? 'B A few people mentioned Lisbeth Salander from Stieg Larsson’ best-selling Millennium Trilogy. ‘She specialises in investigating people and has a photographic memory. 4: Who’ your favourite detective, Mandy? 8: Well, Pm # big fan of Inspector Wallander who’ also from Sweden.

Unfortunately, most children lie even ifchey're told not to. Research carvied out a the Institute of Child Study at Toronto Universi hhas revealed that this might not be such a bad thing. Apparendy, children who tell convincing lies when they’re two years old have a good chance of becoming successful adults. According to the survey, at the age of two, 20 per cent of children lie. At the age of three, 50 per cent lie, and at four almost 90 per cent lie. By the age of 12 almost every child tells lies. Lying involves multiple brain processes, and the better the lie, the more work the brain has to do. By training the brain early, researchers believe children will be able t0 think more clearly when they are adults. Another recent survey, commissioned by the Science Museum in London, bas revealed some interesting facts about the way we lie as adults. According to a survey, the average British man tells three lies every day, that’ over 1,000 lies a year. However, the average woman apparently only lies twice a day. ‘A majority of people think women are better liars than men in spite ofthe face that they tell fewer lies. Popular women's lies include ‘Nothing's wrong, I'm fine’, T don’t know where it s, I haven't touched it, and ‘Tewasn't that expensive’. Sorae people say you ean lie as long as its a white lie. A white le isa lie told to avoid making someone upset. One of the most common lies for both men and women is ‘Ie’ just what I've klways wanted’, said after opening a present from their partner. Pronunciation 1 You don't have to lie to distort reali 2 How do you know if something is the real thing or a fake?

Work starved (on it in 1882 and ie sill isnt finished. When do you think the Sagrade Famili will be finished, Jordi? 1: Tdon't know. Some people say 2017 and others say 2026, which is a special year because it will be 100 years since the death of its architect. a: Ieis an amazing building, Can you tell us something about it? 1: Yes, of course. It's the creation of the Catalan architect Antoni Gaudf although he didn’t actully star it. He began working on the building from 1883 until his death in 1926. A: Isit true that his original plans for the building were destroyed? . Yes. A lot of Gaudis models and papers were destroyed during the Civil War. The work you see today is based fon existing plans and the work of the architects who have been involved in the project over the years. This is one of the reasons why the building is so controversial. Ae Alot of people think the building should have been left unfinished, is that right? 1 Yes. As a tribute to Gaual. I think one of the reasons the building is so popular is because it is a work in progress. When you visi che building you can see the construction process. ‘x: Itattracts around two million visitors each year: . Thats right. Its an important symbol and one of Spain's top tourist attractions, And of course the money the visitors pay to visit the building has helped to construct it, The building of the Sagrada Familia is not supported by any government or official church sources. a Thanks, Jordi Pronunciation 1 symbol symbolic 2 region regional 3. prosperity prosperous ‘4 comparison comparable 5 inspiration inspirational 6 ingenuity ingenious 2 possibility possible Unit 10 Listening “The Actors’ Studio was founded in 1947 by the directors Elia Kazan, Cheryl Crawford and Robert Lewis. The following year, Lee Strasberg was asked to join the Studio as one of its teachers and in 1951 he became its Artistic Director, a position he held uncil his death in 1982. ‘The Studio was originally created to help develop the work of professional acwors, directors and playwrights. Ic isn'ta school, but rather a place where members can practise their art. To become a member you must pass a series of auditions and then be invited to join. Its perhaps best known for its work in the area of method acting, a technique in which actors use their own emotions and memories to help them become the character they are playing instead of ‘acting’ the part. Marlon Brando and James Dean, who were both members of The Actors’ Stadio, helped make method acting (or ‘che method’ as i often called) popular in films such as Streets Named Desire and Rebel Without a Cause. Inlater years, Robert De Niro continued this tradition, When he had to play the part of the boxer Jake LaMotea in the film Raging Bull,he gained 60 pounds (27 kilograms) and learned how to box. He worked as a taxi driver for three months while preparing to make the film Taxi Driver “Today The Actors’ Studio can be found in a former church building at 432 West 44th Screet, in the Clinton area of Manhattan in New York City building it has occupied since 1955.
