Passage 2

 

The largest of the world’s 17 penguin species, emperor penguins stand

nearly four feet and weigh up to 90 pounds. These sea birds never set

foot on dry land. (1) An estimated 200,000 breeding pairs live in about

40 penguin colonies scattered along the coasts of Antarctica. (2) Their

waterproofed feathers, flipper-like wings, and streamlined bodies make

them excellent swimmers and divers. On ice they can travel distances

up to 50 miles by “tobogganing”—gliding on their stomachs while

pushing with their wings and feet.

 

(3) Emperor penguins breed during the Antarctic winter in some

of the world’s most severe weather conditions (temperatures of –80 F

and winds up to 112 miles per hour). Breeding during the winter

allows chicks to mature in midsummer when food is plentiful. After the

female lays a single egg, the male holds it in a fold of skin near his feet

for a two-month incubation period.

During this time he huddles with other males to keep warm.

(4) The male moves very little and does not eat, usually losing up to a third of his body weight.

Meanwhile the females go to sea and dive for fish so that when

they return they can feed and care for the newly hatched chicks.

After the male restores his body weight, both parents take turns caring

for their young.

 

The world’s emperor penguin population declined in the last 50 years

due to a period of warming ocean temperatures. Warm water shrinks

ice cover and reduces the population of krill—a small crustacean that

is the emperor penguin’s staple food. Today the emperor penguin population

has stabilized, but warming trends could again threaten this magnificent

sea bird.

Where in the passage does the author describe the characteristics

that make emperor penguins excellent swimmers?

Passage 1

The Woodstock Music and Art Fair—better known to its participants

and to history simply as “Woodstock”—should have been a colossal failure.

Just a month prior to its August 15, 1969 opening, the council of

Wallkill, New York, informed the fair’s organizers that it was withdrawing

its permission to hold the festival.

Amazingly, the organizers found a new site, a large field in Woodstock,

New York, owned by a local dairy farmer. Word spread to the public

of the fair’s new location. The event drew a larger audience than the

organizers had expected.

On the first day of the fair, crowd estimates of  30,000 kept rising; traffic

jams blocked most roads leading to the area

.

Some musicians could not reach the site to appear at their scheduled times.

In addition, fences that were supposed to facilitate ticket collection never

materialized, so the organizers abandoned all attempts at taking tickets.

But that was not all: as the large crowd gathered, so did summer

storm clouds. It started raining on opening night and continued for much

of the three-day event. To deal with the crowd, which reached an esti

mated 500,000 by the third day, helicopters flew in food, doctors, and

medical supplies

.

Despite all of its problems, the festival featured some of the greatest

musicians of the 1960s, including Janis Joplin; Joan Baez; Crosby,

Stills, Nash, and Young; Sly and the Family Stone; Creedence Clearwater

Revival; and Jimi Hendrix. Today many people think of Woodstock

not only as a milestone for rock music but as the defining moment

for an entire generation.

The present study sought to document the word reading and comprehension levels attained by children who were implanted by 5 year of age. It was hypothesized that the improved speech perception abilities acquired with cochlear implantation would promote phonological coding skills. (1) ...
Three subtests from diagnostic reading assessment batteries standardized on hearing children were administered to 181 children between 8 years 0 month and 9 years 11 months of age who had 4 to 6 years of implant experience. (2) ... it included a lexical decision task , a rhyme task and the digit span subtest of the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children.

Over half of the children scored within the average range for their age compared with the normative data for hearing children. (3 ) ... they were higher nonverbal intelligence, higher family socio-economic status, female gender and later onset of deafness (between birth and 36 months). (Adapted from journal of ear and hearing )

In 1870 Noah Webster began his greatest work, An American Dictionary of the English Language.

In preparing the manuscrift, he devoted ten years to the study of English and its relationship to other languages, and seven more years to the writing it slef. Published in two volumes in 1828, An American Dictionary of the English Language has become recognized authority for usage in the United States. Webster's purpose in writing it was to demonstrate that the American language was developing distinct meanings, pronounciations, and spellings from those British English.

He is responsible for advancing simplified spelling forms; develop instead of the British form develop; theater and center instead of theatre and centre; color and honor instead of colour and honour.

As spring arrives, albeit quite late this year for many of us, we notice the changing of seasons by the weather, but also by a host of natural events. Depending on where you live, the crocuses may poke through the snow the killdeer may be back, or the cherry trees may bloom. There is an orderly sequence of events that seem to occur, with various spring flowers appearing in order, red maple buds bursting into new leaves, or the old lilac by the barn scenting the air. This seasonal cycle of natural phenomena is called phenology. Global climate change appears to be interfering with the phenology of many species, at the very heart of species interactions.

In temperate regions like the northern half of the United States , there is comparatively little biological activity in winter. Most plants are dormant , and so are the insects feeding on them. In turn , animals that rely on these Insects , such as bats and birds, are hibernating or spending the cold months in more southerly locations. Ectotherms like reptiles and amphibians, which take their body warmth from their environment , also have active phases tied to the seasons. This long winter period constrains all the growing, breeding, and dispersing activities that plants and animals do to a short favorable window. That’s what makes spring so vibrant, with plants flowering and putting on new growth, insects emerging and breeding, and birds flying back to take advantage of this short-lived bounty. The onsets of each of these activities add up to so many phenological markers.

Different organisms respond to different cues to initiate seasonal activities. Many plants will start growing leaves again after a set period of dormancy, which very roughly dictates the leaf-out window. Cue that more precisely determine when the buds break can be soil temperature, air temperature, or water availability. Similarly, temperature cues can promote the beginning of insect activity. Day length itself can be the operative trigger for some seasonal events. It is only when there are a sufficient number of daylight hours that reproductive hormones will be produced in many bird species.

The most energy-demanding period in the life of most animals is when they reproduce. For that reason , it is to their advantage to coincide breeding (and for many, the raising of young) during a period when food is most abundant. Caterpillars should hatch just as the young tender leaves of oak tree emerge, before they harden and become less nutritious. Breeding songbirds need to time the hatching of their young just during that peak in caterpillar activity, so they can take advantage of this rich source of protein to feed their offspring. Many species have evolved to exploit peaks in resource availability, so all these seemingly independent phenological events are indeed part of a complex web of precise interactions. Disruptions in seasonal events can have profound effects on ecosystems. (http://environment.about.com/)
