Space pilots, vertical farmers and body part makers are just some of the jobs the next  generation could be doing in 20 years’ time. This is what expert future researchers came up  with in a study on “The Shape of Jobs to Come” – which analyzed future trends such as  population growth and climate change alongside developments in science and technology to  create a list of potential jobs under the ongoing digital revolution that will prompt a need for  virtual lawyers, virtual clutter organizers, waste data handlers and personal branders. The foresight study by UK-based Fast Future, a global future research and consulting firm,  paints an interesting picture of the jobs we could be doing by 2040. 

Safeguarding the environment will be more prominent than ever, with climate change  reversal specialists, vertical farmers and weather modificatio police all attempting to deal  with the impact of climate change and population growth; old age wellness managers,  memory augmentation surgeons and body part makers will be needed to cope with an ageing

Future jobs that benefit society will be the most popular, with climate change reversal  specialist, social ‘networking’ workers and old age wellness manager topping the pol in the  popularity stakes; and work won’t all be ‘fun’ in the future, with the least exciting jobs being  weather modification police to protect us from cloud theft, quarantine enforcers preventing  the spread of diseases and waste data handlers who will dispose of our electronic mess. “The list of future jobs highlights the vast array of exciting things today’s schoolchildren  could be doing in 20 years time, all made possible by fields of science and innovation in  which Britain has real expertise.” Said Fast Future chief executive officer Rohit Talwarm  who conducted the study. 

“We’re crossing the boundaries between science fiction and reality, and what we’re seeing in  the movies are becoming genune career opportunities. Alongside futuristic sounding high tech jobs at the cutting edge of scientific fields – like nano-medicine, the jobs of the future  also include very ‘high touch’ occupations, such as old age wellness managers, narrowcasters  and personal branders.”

All living cells in an animal’s body require energy to power the various chemical processes  going inside them. This energy is ultimately supplied by the food that animals eat. These  chemical processes are collectively refered to as metabolism, and one of the byproducts of  metabolism is heat. Metabolic rates vary significantly between species. Warm-blooded  animals (birds and mammals) have metabolic rates about five to ten times higher than those  of similarly sized cold-blooded ones (reptiles, amphibians, and fishes). And it is precisely  because birds and mammals have suh high metabolic rates that they are able to keep their  bodies warm.

Page 8 of 10 

The terms warm-blooded and cold-blooded are still in everyday use, but they are not entirely  precise. Anyone who has handles a snake knows this because a snake’s body actually feels  quite warm. But very little of the snake’s body heat originates internally, from its cells, most  of it having been supplied from the outside, either by the sun or by a heat lamp. Instead of  referring to reptiles as cold-blooded, they are best describes as ectothermic, meaning “outside  heat”. Similarly, birds and mammals are said to be endothermic, meaning “inside heat”. There are advantages and disadvantages to each thermal strategy. Reptiles are usually  sluggish first thing in the morning, their body temperatures having dropped during the cool  of the night. Accordingly, they have to bask in the sun to raise their body temperatures, but  once they have warme up sufficiently, they can go about their business. By altering between  the sun when they are too cool, and the shade when they are too warm, many reptiles are able  to maintain their body temperatures at optimum levels of about 95°F or more. Endotherms,  on the other hand, maintain temperatures of about 98°F all the time, so they are always ready  for action.  

I used to keep a crocodile. He had very sharp teeth, and I had to be careful how I handled him  during the daytime, when he was warm. But I could do whatever I wanted at night, when he  was cold, without any fear of being bitten. The obvious disadvantage of being ectothermic is  that the animal’s activity levels are dependent upon the enviroment. But its low metabolic  rates mean that it requires far less food, which is an advantage. The crocodile only needed a  tiny piece of liver once a week, while the family cat demande three meals every day. We  should, therefore, not think that reptiles are inferior to mammals and birds; they are just  different. 

Question 68: According to the author, the term “cold-blooded” is misleading because “cold blooded” animals ___________. 

A. often have a body temperature comparable to that of warm-blooded animals B. cannot survive cold temperatures even when being exposeto the sun 

C. are more effected by heat than by cold in any environment 

D. always have a higher body temperature than the temperature of the environment

Question 69: What can be referred from the passage? 

A. Maintaining a high metabolic rate requires less fuel in the form of food. B. Reptiles cannot absorb energy from the surrounding environment. 

C. Birds and mammals have high metabolic rates because they can keep their bodies warm. D. Reptiles cannot function properly and survive if there is no heat in the surrounding  atmosphere. 

Question 70: Why does the author mention his pet in the last paragraph? A. Because he wants to reject the fact that keeping a reptile as pet is less expensive. B. Because he wants to illustrate the ectothermsm has both advantages and disadvantages. C. Because he wants to give advice about how to raise pets. 

D. Because he wants to illustrate reptiles’ metabolic rates. 

Question 71: What is the best title of the passage? 

A. Endortherms and Ectotherms 

B. Advantages of Entothermism 

C. Common Misconceptions about Reptiles 

D. Birds and Mammals
