In1 a job or advancing in one, the ability to read and comprehend 2 can mean the difference between success and failure. Yet the unfortunate fact is that most of us are. 3 readers. Most of us develop poor reading.4 at an early age, and never get over them. The main deficiency 5 in the actual stuff of language itself-words. Taken individually, words have.6 meaning until they are strung together into phrased, sentences and paragraphs. Z , however, the untrained reader does not read groups of words.

bad habit in reading. Another habit which 10 down the speed of reading is vocalization- sounding each word either orally or mentally as 11 reads. To overcome these bad habits, some reading clinics use a device "12 which moves a taster rate 13 _the reader finds comtortable, in order to "stretch”him.

In ancient times wealth was measured and exchanged in things that could be touched: food, tools, and precious
metals and stones. Then the barter system was replaced by coins, which still had real value since they were pieces of rare metal. Coins were followed by fiat money, paper notes that have value only because everyone agrees to accept them.Today electronic monetary systems are gradually being introduced that will transform money into even 1ess tangible forms, reducing it to a series of“bits and bytes ; or units of computerized information, going between machines at the speed of light.

Directions: for this part, you are allowed 30 minutes to
write a short essay entitled My view on charity. You shoulD write at least 120 words following the outline given below.
1. The reasons for this phenomenon are multifaceted.
Firstly, some charitable organizations may have issues with the use of funds and transparency. Some institutions may use the majority of donations for their own operating costs rather than truly for charitable purposes.
In addition, some individuals may use charitable causes to seek personal gain or engage in reputation cleansing.
Finally, the popularity of social media and the internet has also made the behavior of charitable organizations and individuals more easily exposed and criticized by the public.
2. My opinion is that,
This criticism is necessary. Charity is aimed at helping those in need and the community, and it should be honest, transparent, and beneficial. When the behavior of individuals and institutions contradicts these principles, the public has the right to question and criticize.
3. To solve this problem,
We need to strengthen the regulation and transparency requirements for charitable causes. Charity organizations should disclose the use of their funds and the progress of their projects to ensure that donations are effectively utilized.

Most people love Michael Jordan. He's the NBA's No.1 player who can run fast, jump high and shoot well. All
these things are true, but there are other truths about Michael that are not so easily seen: his understanding of
teamwork. his competitive spirit and his love for the game.
It is these truths that form the deepest connection between Michael and me.
After coaching him for eight seasons. I still wonder at Michael's love for the game that moves us, even in practice games. I mean, he never takes a day off. One thing about Michael is that he takes nothing about his game for granted. When he first came to the NBA back in 1984. his outside shooting was not perfect, and he began to practice shooting hundreds of shots each day. In the end. he became a real three-point shooter. Playing outstanding defense didn't come straight to him. either. He had to study his opponents,
learn their usual moves and then try hard to learn the skills necessary to stop them. He worked extremely hard to perfect his footwork and his balance.
Today. so many young people come to the game with the thought that talent is all they need for success. Michael thinks the other way. He knows his weaknesses, and for me, one of the signs of Michael's greatness is that he has turned his weaknesses into strengths.
Another of the qualities I respect most about Michael is his performance on the court. Whilst he is very competitive, he always respects the other players, whether they are on his team or on the other side. Often, he gives a hand to an opponent who falls down. He is definitely not the type of player who would try to build himself up by tearing someone else down. This is an act of leadership. Through his outstanding performance on the court, he has won love and respect from both his teammates and opponents.
Every season, Michael makes himself available to groups of children with serious diseases. He puts them at ease, 1ets them have a laugh, and makes it possible for them to enjoy basketball. When Michael retires, I only hope that young players like Grant Hill and Kobe Bryant will be influenced by his performance and by his sense of fair play. I hope that people will remember him for much more than just his championship rings. Being Michael's coach has been A great joy. But more importantly. I consider Michael to be A friend.

Noting that“an air route without marking is like a highway without signs": Phoebe F. Omlie of the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics in 1935 conceived a plan to paint town names and directional indicators on the roofs of buildings throughout the United States. At Eleanor Roosevelt' s suggestion, the Bureau of Air Commerce hired women fliers, among them Louise Thaden and Blanche Noyes, to scout sites and get permission for the markers from local officials and building owners. Workers then painted the signs in orange characters, seven to twelve feet high and visible from 3.000 feet. The system soon became the answer to a 1ost pilot s prayer with 16 000 markers --- one every 15 miles on every air route in the country.
