Are you preparing for a big test? If so, you may want to go play some basketball in between hitting the books. Based on information they have collected over the years, researchers have seen an apparent connection between exercise and brain development. Judy Cameron, a researcher at Oregon Health and Science University, studies brain development. According to her research, it seems that exercise can make blood vessels, including those in the brain, stronger and more fully developed. Cameron claims this allows people who exercise to concentrate better. She says, "While we already know that exercise is good for the heart, exercise can literally cause physical changes in the brain." 

The effects of exercise on brain development can even be seen in babies. Babies who do things that require a lot of movement and physical activity show greater brain development than babies who are less physically active. With babies, even a little movement can show big results. Margaret Barnes, a pediatrician, believes in the importance of exercise. She thinks that many learning disabilities children have in elementary school or high school can be traced back to a lack of movement as babies. "Babies need movement that stimulates their five senses," says Barnes. “They need to establish a connection between motion and memory. In this way, as they get older, children will begin to associate physical activity with higher learning." 

The benefits of exercise on the brain are not just for babies. Older people can beef up their brains by working out as well. Researchers at Cornell University studied a group of seniors ranging in age from seventy to seventy-nine. Their study showed a short-term memory increase of up to forty percent after exercising just three hours a week. The exercise does not have to be very difficult, but it does have to increase the heart rate. Also, just like the motion for infants, exercise for older people should involve some complexity. Learning some new skills or motions, such as with yoga or tai-chi, helps open up memory paths in the brain that may not have been used for a long time. 

For most people, any type of physical activity that increases the heart rate is helpful. The main goal is to increase the brain's flow of blood. Your brain can benefit from as little as two to three hours of exercise a week.

Part 4: Read a newspaper article about a competition between a human and a machine. Six sentences have been removed from the article. Choose from the sentences A-G the one which fits each gap 1-6. There is one extra sentence which you do not to use. Write your answer in the numbered box. (1.5 pts) 

Recently, millions of people watched a man play a computer in a game called "Go", one of the oldest board games in the world. The game involves two players placing black and white counters on a board, and gaining ground by "capturing" their opponent's counters. It is thought to be the most complex game ever devised. A human-looking robot called AlphaGo, which was trained by a company called Deep Mind, played five games against Korean Lee Sodol, one of the world's leading players. Surprisingly, the computer won the opening game with ease. A fellow professional player of the game, Myung-wan Kim, was interviewed soon after the result was announced. He admitted that, although he had expected that the computer would perhaps manage to win a game at some point in the tournament, he never imagined that it was going to be the very first one. (1) 

However, it got considerably worse, as he went on to lose the next two games. The computer revealed its calculating nature towards the end of one of the games, when it appeared to have made a mistake that allowed Lee to capture several of AlphaGo's counters. (2) AlphaGo has thought ahead and made a clever tactical move. This proved it was capable of doing whatever would maximise its chances of ultimately winning. At this stage, Lee felt embarrassed about the fact that he was now losing 3-0 and stressed it was his personal defeat and not an indication that a computer like AlphaGo would always win against a human. Lee started to fight back in the middle of fourth game by making some astonishing moves of his own, and spectators believed he might finally get his revenge. One of Lee's old rivals, who was in the audience, praised him for the quality of his performance. Meanwhile, the assembled journalists began to take notice, as AlphaGo seemed to be struggling. (3) 

This led some to speculate that the software was seriously malfunctioning. 

Được quét bằng CamScanner 

Lee was now minutes away from his first victory over AlphaGo, was calm and fully focused at this crucial moment. (4) 

Then a massage appeared on AlphaGo's screen confirming 

that it had conceded defeat for the first time. 


Instead, his focus was on the board and on the game he'd just won. In Go, it's customary to review the match with your opponent and to share your thoughts. Such a dialogue was not possible because across from Lee sat only the computer programmer, who was totally unable to explain the mistakes that AlphaGo had made on this occasion. 

Despite this setback for AlphaGo, the overall result was still a 3-1 win for the machine. It was a significant moment in the development of artificial intelligence. (6) 

This time, however, AlphaGo had learnt moves as a result of practical experience and had worked out the complex rules for itself - a very impressive achievement, as everyone acknowledged. 

A. It was starting to make increasingly erratic and strange moves, which nobody could explain. Although it is quite advanced, it is only by trial and error that the machine can learn in this way. 


C. But if Lee was quietly congratulating himself for this victory, it was barely noticeable. D. Lee felt much the same, expressing disbelief that a mere machine could play the game 

so skillfully. 

E. In past experiments, computers had been programmed with information about the game 

before they faced their first human opponent. 

F. Meanwhile, the computer's programmer, who was responsible for moving counters on the board in response to instructions from the little machine, looked tense and worried. G. Lee thought this could be a turning point, but that was not the case.

1. The concept of traffic-free shopping areas goes back a long time. During the Middle Ages, traffic-free shopping areas known as souks were built in Middle Eastern countries to allow people to shop in comfort and, more importantly, safety. As far back as 2,000 years ago, road traffic was banned from central Rome during the day to allow for the free movement of pedestrians, and was only allowed in at night when shops and markets had closed for the day. In most other cities, however, pedestrians were forced to share the streets with horses, coaches and, later, with cars and other motorised vehicles.

2. The modern, traffic-free shopping street was born in Europe in the 1960s, when both city populations and car ownership increased rapidly. Dirty exhaust fumes from cars and the risks involved in crossing the road were beginning to make shopping an unpleasant and dangerous experience. Many believed the time was right for experimenting with car-free streets, and shopping areas seemed the best place to start. 

3. At first, there was resistance from shopkeepers. They believed that such a move would be bad for business. They argued that people would avoid streets if they were unable to get to them in their cars. When the first streets in Europe were closed to traffic, there were even noisy demonstrations, as many shopkeepers predicted they would lose customers. 

4. However, research carried out afterwards in several European cities revealed some unexpected statistics. In Munich, Cologne and Hamburg, visitors to shopping areas increased by 50 per cent. On Copenhagen's main shopping street, shopkeepers reported sales increases of 25-40 per cent. Shopkeepers in Minneapolis, USA, were so impressed when they learnt this that they even offered to pay for the construction and maintenance costs of their own traffic-free streets. 

5. With the arrival of the traffic-free shopping street, many shops, especially those selling things like clothes, food and smaller luxury items, prospered. Unfortunately, it wasn't good news for everyone, as shops selling furniture and larger electrical appliances actually saw their sales drop. Many of these were forced to move elsewhere, away from the city centre. Today they are a common feature on the outskirts of towns and cities, often situated in out- of-town retail zones with their own car packs and other local facilities.
