Several factors may have contributed to the decline.

TV news viewership has declined steadily over the past two decades. Several factors may have contributed to the decline: busy lifestyles, lack of interest, and the rise of the Internet. As viewership has declined, the remaining viewers have aged. Today, the average evening news viewer is 60 years old. TV networks’ response to these changes has largely been negative. They have dropped hard news in favor of opinion pieces, “puff pieces,” and stories that are of interest only to their older demographic. As a result, TV news has not just become unpopular, it has also become largely worthless.

The following questions are based on this passage.

1. Which of the following statements from the passage is an opinion?

A. Several factors may have contributed to the decline.

B. As viewership has declined, the remaining viewers have aged.

C. They have dropped hard news.

D. It has also become largely worthless.

2. Which of the following is the author’s purpose in the passage?

A. To convince readers that TV news is no longer worth watching

B. To show how busy lifestyles have caused a decline in TV news watching

C. To explain that TV news uses “puff pieces” to attract viewers

D. To describe how the Internet has had an adverse effect on TV news

Peat bogs are wetlands that contain acidic water and large deposits of compressed, dead plant material known as peat. Peat bogs are typically shallow and punctuated by areas of semi-dry land. Slabs of peat can be cut from the bog and used in agriculture or dried and then burned as fuel. Peat was a significant fuel in some pre-industrial societies, especially those that lacked plentiful firewood. Peat bogs can preserve dead plants and animals because the acidic water prevents rotting and decomposition. Importantly, some of the best-preserved early human remains have been discovered in peat bogs.

The following questions are based on this passage.

3. A logical conclusion based on the passage is that peat bogs

A. are good environments for archeological investigation.

B. have been disappearing since the Industrial Revolution.

C. are viable sources of potable water for many communities.

D. have been a primary source of carbon emissions into the atmosphere.

4. Which of the following sentences from the passage contains an opinion?

A. Peat bogs are typically shallow and punctuated by areas of semi-dry land.

C. Peat bogs can preserve dead plants and animals because the acidic water prevents rotting and decomposition.

D. Importantly, some of the best-preserved early human remains have been discovered in peat bogs.

Business-Speak In recent years the business world has coined its own unique, jargon-filled sub-language. This sub-language is often called “business-speak” (or “manager-speak,” since some of its most enthusiastic users are managers and executives).

Business-speak is not a unique phenomenon. Every profession or field invents its own specialized words, in order to express complicated ideas without excessive wordiness. For example, the casino world popularized the term “camps,” which refers to free gifts or services given to casino patrons to encourage them to gamble.

Business-speak contains some useful phrases, but also suffers from three major problems: unnecessary words, euphemistic words, and overused words.

The first problem is that of unnecessary words. Jargon is only useful if no existing words can do the job- but many business-speak phrases replace perfectly good existing phrases. For example, “vis-a-vis” is often used instead of the simpler “in relation to” or “compared to.” In this case, the business-speak phrase isn’t much shorter than existing phrases, but it is definitely more obscure. This is a step in the wrong direction.

The second problem is that of euphemism. Instead of simplifying a complicated concept, much business-speak is meant to soften the blow of negativity. Hence, layoffs become “reductions,” or “downsizing,” or even “right-sizing.” Instead of making things better, these euphemistic words often make their users seem insincere and uncaring.

The final problem is that of overuse. People overuse business-speak in order to appear professional or intelligent. But in doing so, they may end up sounding foolish and may fail to get their points across at all.

In summary, a little business-speak goes a long way. A wise person will keep a sharp lookout for unnecessary, euphemistic, and cliched business-speak and will cut it from his or her vocabulary as quickly and ruthlessly as possible.

The following questions are based on the “Business-Speak” passage.

5. Which of the following sentences from the passage contains only factual information, as opposed to opinion?

A. In recent years the business world has coined its own unique, jargon-filled sub-language.

B. Instead of making things better, these euphemistic words often make their users seem insincere and uncaring.

C. People overuse business-speak in order to appear professional or intelligent.

D. A wise person will keep a sharp lookout for unnecessary, euphemistic, and cliched business-speak.

6. Which of the following sentences best summarizes the passage?

A. Business-speak can be a useful communication tool, but it should be used conservatively.

B. Useful existing phrases are too often replaced by unnecessary instances of business-speak.

C. Various professions develop their own language, which is used for efficiency within their circles.

D. Business-speak may cause communication to become impersonal and insincere.

7. Which of the following statements from the passage is a supporting detail for the notion that there are problems with business-speak?

A. Some of its most enthusiastic users are managers and executives.

B. Business-speak is not a unique phenomenon.

C. The casino world popularized the term “camps.”

D. Much business-speak is meant to soften the blow of negativity.

8. The author of the passage would most likely approve of which of the following instances of business-speak?

A. Using “disambiguate” instead of “clarify”

B. Using “resource-intensive” instead of “expensive”

C. Using “best practices” instead of “policies that have been shown to be most effective”

D. Using “took a bath” instead of “lost a lot of money in a venture that did not work”

9. Which of the following industries most likely originated the business-speak term “bandwidth”?

A. Finance

B. Real Estate

C. Technology

D. Health care

Siberia is a giant, semi-arctic region encompassing most of northern Asia. Most of Siberia is, or has once been, part of Russia or the Soviet Union. Much of Siberia is frozen and empty. Though Siberia contributes almost 80% of Russia’s land area, only a quarter of Russia’s population lives there, mainly huddled along the territory’s southern fringe. Siberia is perhaps best known for the infamous prison labor camps known as the Gulag, where Russia (and later the Soviet Union) sent many of the nation’s prisoners. Because of the Gulag, the name “Siberia” has become international slang for an undesirable, remote location.

Purchasing a Snow Blower Snow blowers (also called snow throwers) can make the sometimes-difficult, often-unpleasant task of cleaning snow from sidewalks and driveways much easier. Before making a purchase, however, it’s best to learn a few snow blowers basics. Most snow blowers are gasoline powered, though some smaller models are electric. Electric models ate typically not the best choice for large jobs, as they tend to lack the power of gas models. However, electric models can be very light, and they are considered more environmentally friendly. Consider an electric only for small areas or it weight is an important consideration. The next big choice is whether to buy a one-stage or two-stage model. One-stage models are simplest. They use impellers (spinning paddles) to collect the snow and blast it out through a discharge chute. Two-stage models are slightly more complex. They use an augur (a rotating screw) to handle the job of breaking up and collecting snow and impeller to throw the snow out through the chute. Two-stage models are typically bigger, heavier and more powerful than single-stage models. A final consideration is engine size. Engines are typically measured in cc (cubic centimeters) a small, single-stage snow blower might have a 140 cc engine, while a big two-stage blower might feature 200 cc or even more. This is a lot of information to digest. However, an ?? blower is typically ??

The Union Stock Yards (often just called The Yards) was a great Chicago meatpacking district that exited from the mid-19th century up to the middle of 20th century. For a time The Yards was the busiest meat processing area in the world. The Yards existed because it was convenient. A great number of railroad line converged in Chicago, making it an excellent point to collect hogs and cattle, slaughter them, and distributes the meat nationwide.

Ears By the nature of their position and the delicacy of their structure, your hearing organs are particularly vulnerable to mishap. From the outside come blows that rupture the eardrums, noises that degenerate nerves, and air-pressing changes that disturb balancing mechanisms. Inside the body, infectious micro – organisms causes disease that effect hearing. Any one of these enemies is a potential cause of partial or even total deafness. Neglect of seemingly minor ear troubles can mean severe problems in the future – a fact that haunts every parent whose child wakes up in the middle of the night crying with an earache. The hearing mechanism is divided into four main parts. Each has a vital role in the process that transforms sound into intelligible communication. First, the external ear is made up of the auricle – that shell- shaped appendage on each side of the head – and the external ear canal. These structures collect sound waves and transmit them to the eardrum or tympanic membrane. The middle ear is an air-filled cavity behind the drum, and it contains three small bones (the ossicles) that are vibrated by sound waves and serve to transmit the waves to the inner ear. Opening into the middle ear is the Eustachian tube, which connects the tympanic chamber with the nose and equalizes the pressure between the outside atmosphere and the middle ear. In the inner ear are the semicircular canal, which gives the body its balance, and the tiny hearing cells that transform the vibrations of the ossicles first into fluid waves and then into nerve impulses. Finally, the auditory nerve pathway carries impulses to the brain, where they are translated into words and signals. Altogether hearing represents a wonderfully complex arrangement for acoustical perfection – better by far than any human engineer has ever devised. Yet, millions of Americans suffer from impaired hearing.

News reporting Time magazine made waves in 2006 when, instead of selecting a politician, entertainer, or activist as its Person of the Year, it selected “you.” The magazine’s intention was to illustrate how millions of user-post blogs, videos, pictures, and other content had exploded onto the internet and changed the cultural landscape. No longer were a few large media companies the gatekeepers of news opinion, and entertainment. Instead, millions of individuals now had the power to reach a vast audience. The selection of “you” as Person of the Year highlighted the new forces power of the individual. This change is typically seen as positive. News reporting, for example, is now undeniably more democratic an every individual is now capable of reporting or providing news commentary. For each ray of sunshine emerging from the Internet-fueled reality, however, there is corresponding dark cloud. For example: Yes, there are now thousands of news-reporting blogs. But many of these are poorly written and researched, and the worst of them spread dangerous The proliferation of free blogs and small, self-styled news sources also makes it difficult for larger, more traditional news agencies to charge for content. However, much of the factual information posted by individual bloggers and micro-agencies is plagiarized from traditional agencies. What happens if the big agencies trait or shrink to a point where their budgets can no longer support legitimate journalism? In this case, news reporting as a whole will suffer. There are certainly disadvantages to letting a few large entities control the world’s news, but those entities provides several oft-overlooked positives. For the most part they enforce standards of quality, journalism, and accountability. Is the decline of these gatekeepers truly a win for society? Not necessarily. The following questions are based on the “News Reporting
