The frozen extremes of the earth The Arctic in the north and the Antarctic in the south are at opposite ends of the planet, but they are similar in many ways. Both are lands of ice and snow, where the temperature in winter can be so low that your skin can freeze in seconds it can be as low as 80 C. Very few animals are able to survive these conditions, but there are some both in the north and in the south. The Arctic has more plants and animals than the Antarctic, including polar bears, the largest bear in the world. In the south there are no land animals because of the extreme cold, but there are penguins and other sea animals that live on or near the coast although both in the north and the south the sea is frozen for much of the year. One difference between the Arctic and the Antarctic is the human population. In parts of the Arctic there are towns and villages Greenland, for example, the largest island in the world, has a population of 55,000 people. Many of these people work in fishing. They have a difficult life. There aren t many roads between towns and villages, so people travel by snowmobile or with dogs. From November to January it s dark for 24 hours a day, but from May to July there are 24 hours of daylight. In the Antarctic there are no normal 6

7 towns and villages. Only scientists live there all year round, in special buildings called stations. They study the sea animals and learn about the history of the world s climate by studying the weather and the ice. It s a hard place to live, especially in winter, but many of them love it there and return again and again. Example: The Antarctic is the coldest place in the world. 1. There aren t any animals in the Antarctic. 2. No people live in the Antarctic. 3. There aren t any buildings in the Antarctic. 4. It is usually 80 degrees in the Antarctic. 5. The sea in the Arctic is often frozen. 6. There aren t any sea animals in the Arctic. 7. There aren t any roads in Greenland. 8. In Greenland in June it s light all the time. 7

ACCESO A NI1: READING Read the article and tick ( ) A, B, or C. How to Survive in the Jungle Last week in our series Life in the Jungle we looked at some of the most fascinating jungles in the world. In this week s feature, we re looking at how to survive in the jungle. Alana Harris gives us some ideas. When you re in the jungle, you need to leave all your luxuries at home! That means, forget your mobile phone, your favourite coffee, your chocolate bars, and your CD player. When you re in the jungle, you need only four things water, food, shelter, and fire. You can find all of these easily, but you must know what to look for. Let s start with water. Even though there s a lot of water in most tropical environments, you may not find it immediately. One way to discover it is to follow animals and birds, as they need liquid regularly. Insects can also be a good sign, because they usually build their nests near water. However, don t only look for rivers. You can also find water in plants such as vines, roots, and palm trees. You can usually find a lot of food in the jungle, but you must be happy to eat things you wouldn t normally want to, for example, insects. However, you need to know the difference between those you can eat and those that are poisonous, so start reading 12

13 about them now! For cooking and for warmth, collect dry firewood, leaves, and grass. Then make fire using dry sticks or take a box of matches or a lighter with you! The type of shelter you need depends on the weather and the kind of animals that are in the jungle. Malaria-carrying mosquitoes and other insects can be very dangerous, so protect yourself against bites. If you don t have any insect repellent, try putting mud on your skin. Of course, if you re lost in the jungle, you ll want to get home again. The sun and stars can help you find your way, so you might want to study astronomy. Alternatively, when you find a river, follow it. People usually live near rivers, so if you walk along the river bank, eventually you ll find a village. Example: This is the first article in the series. A True B False C Doesn t say 1. Alana Harris has been to the jungle several times. 2. She suggests taking one luxury food item. 3. Animals can lead you to water. 4. Insects can survive a long time without drinking. 5. Alana doesn t recommend getting water from plants. 6. Alana says it s always safe to eat insects. 7. Alana has been poisoned by a plant before. 8. You shouldn t use a lighter to make a fire in the jungle. 9. Mosquitoes will bite you if you don t have insect repellent. 10. It s a good idea to learn about the stars. 13

READING Read the article and tick ( ) A, B, or C. We all know that men and women have their differences. But do they really think differently? Some people might argue that they don t, but I disagree. In my opinion, men and women still behave in the same way that they were designed to centuries ago. We have different interests, different ways of speaking, of showing how we feel, and of coping with stressful situations. 19

20 In today s society, where the sexes are considered to be equal, we sometimes forget how different we are. This can have a negative effect on our relationships. We often become angry or frustrated with the opposite sex because we expect them to behave and communicate like we do. So why does a man behave as he does? There is evidence to suggest that men were programmed with the instinct to hunt silently for animals. They had to be able to focus their attention on one thing. This might explain why it s so difficult to have a conversation with a man when he s watching TV! And also why he s so good at reading maps and giving directions. Why does a woman act the way she does? Women are usually very good at multi-tasking (doing more than one job at once), but often find it harder than men to concentrate fully on one thing. In the past, women would have worked in groups, which required a lot of communication, so they re generally more talkative and sensitive to other people s feelings. A woman can return from a party knowing everything about everyone, but a man will probably have discussed less personal topics like football. Research has shown that men and women use different parts of their brains for language. Women usually score higher in writing tests. Men are seven times more likely to score in the top 5% in scientific exams. They re often talented at problem-solving and making quick decisions, whilst women are good at organization, comforting, and giving advice. Of course, women still do dangerous sports, and men can multi-task without any problem after a strong cup of coffee! I m not saying that women and men are not equal; it s just that there are some natural differences and that s fantastic! We should appreciate and accept them as being what makes us special. 20

21 Example: The writer says that everyone has noticed that men and women are different. A True B False C Doesn t say 1. The writer thinks men and women have changed the way they behave over centuries. 2. Modern society has made the sexes more equal. 3. Relationships can become tense because men and women don t understand each other. 4. Men were originally designed to go out and hunt for food. 5. Men are naturally able to concentrate on one problem at a time. 6. Women understand other people s emotions more easily than men. 7. Men s brains are generally larger than women s. 8. Women are usually good at learning languages. 9. Research shows that men aren t better at scientific subjects than women. 10. The writer thinks that men and women shouldn t be equal. 21

The popular image of Anna Wintour is of a cold and terrifying woman. She is often referred to as an 'ice queen'. At the offices of Vogue in New York, where she has reigned now for twenty years, the younger members of staff tremble in her presence and have difficulty speaking. Why does Anna frighten them so much? According to her friends (and she has lots of them) it isn't her character that gives her this reputation. They describe her as an amiable person. She is neither rude nor does she do horrible things. But, she is very powerful. Nowadays, she is recognized as the most powerful woman in fashion. One explanation for Anna's coldness is simply that she is extremely shy. When she was young, before she started wearing dark glasses all the time, she used to cover much of her face with a fringe. However, a company colleague of hers insists that the dark glasses are prescribed by an optician to protect her eyes. 25

26 In a recent TV documentary she was seen without her glasses, giving a feeling of wanting to show her uncovered face to the world. The reason for this has been attributed to her new relationship with a Texan mobile phone millionaire. It is said the 'ice queen' has at last found romance. Whether she has found romance or not, she hasn't allowed it to affect her hard-headed approach to her job. Her responsibility is to sell as many copies of her magazine as possible and to maximize the advertising profits. Wintour has resisted making changes to Vogue in order to make it more accessible to a greater number of people and for the moment she has been proved right. Under Wintour's management Vogue sells 1.2 million copies a month and earns about 130 million dollars a year in advertising. She is highly respected by the chairman of the company which owns the magazine, Si Newhouse. She has become a huge celebrity in New York where people stop her in the street or in restaurants to ask her for an autograph. Wintour is happy with her career. She is often asked how long she plans to stay in her job. She has earned enough to be able to live without working. Her answer is, 'As a woman who has always wanted to be in fashion and has reached the top, why should I want to give it all up now?' 1.
