Every year people throw away million of tonnes of plastic bottles, boxes and wrapping. These create huge  mountains of waste that are extreme hard to get rid of. Now a new recycling process promises reducing this  problem by turning old plastic into new. 

Scientists have taken a long time to develop their ideas because waste plastic has always been a bigger problem  than substances alike waste paper. You can bury plastic, but it takes years to break down. If you burn it, it just  becomes others form of pollution. A few products, for example bottles, can be misused, but it is expensive or  difficult to do this with a lot of plastic products. Now the group of companies has developed a new method of  recycling that could save almost all plastic waste. Nearly every type of waste plastic can be used: it does not  have to be sorting. In addition, labels and ink may be left on the products. Everything are simply mixed together and heated to more than 400 degrees centigrade such that it melts. It is then cooled, producing a waxy substance what can be used to make new plastic products, including computer hardware.

Drop me a line! 

In our fast world of phones, emails and computers, the old-fashioned art of letter writing is at risk of disappearing altogether. Yet, to me, there is something about receiving a letter that cannot be matched by any other form of communication. There is the excitement of its arrival, the pleasure of seeing who it is from and, finally, the enjoyment of the contents. 

Letter writing has been part of my life for as long as I can remember. It probably began with the little notes I would write to my mother. My mother, also, always insisted I write my own thank-you letters for Christmas and birthday presents. (1) ______. 


When I left home at 18 to train as a doctor in London, I would write once a week, and so would my mother. Occasionally my father would write and it was always a joy to receive his long, amusing letters. (2)______ . Of course, we also made phone calls but it is the letters I remember most.. 

There were also letters from my boyfriends. In my youth I seemed to attract people who had to work or study away at some time and I was only able to stay in touch by correspondence. (3) _____ I found that I could often express myself more easily in writing than by talking. 

I love the letters that come with birthday or Christmas cards. (4) _____! And it's even nicer when it's an airmail envelope with beautiful stamps. My overseas letters arrive from Mangala in Sri Lanka, from someone I trained with over 20 years ago, and I have a penfriend in Australia and another in Vancouver. 

Then there's the lady who writes to me from France. If we hadn't started talking in a restaurant on the way home from holiday, if my husband hadn't taken her photo and if I hadn't asked her for her address, I would never have been able to write to her. (5) _____. As it is, we now have a regular correspondence. I can improve my French (she speaks no English); we have stayed at her home twice and she has stayed with us. 

My biggest letter-writing success, however, came this summer, when my family and I stayed with my American penfriend in Texas. (6) _____. Everyone was amazed that a correspondence could last so long. The local press even considered the correspondence worth reporting on the front page. " 

I am pleased that my children are carrying on the tradition. Like my mother before me, I insist they write their own thank-you letters. My daughter writes me little letters, just as I did to my mother. (7) _____. However convenient communicating by email may appear to be, I strongly urge readers not to allow letter writing to become another 'lost art'.. 

(Source: Cambridge First Certificate in English 3) 

A. Most of the letters from home contained just everyday events concerning my parents and their friends B. We had been corresponding for 29 years but had never met 

C. It didn't matter how short or untidy they were as long as they were letters 

D. Notes are appreciated, but how much better to have a year's supply of news 

E. Poor handwriting can spoil your enjoyment of a letter 

F. But instead of harming the relationships, letter writing seemed to improve them 

G. She and my son have penfriends of their own in Texas, organised by my penfriend H. More important, if she hadn't replied, we would be the poorer for it 

Part VII. Read the passage below and answer the questions that follow. (2.6pts) 

Persistent bullying is one of the worst experiences a child can face. How can it be prevented? Peter Smith, Professor of Psychology at the University of Sheffield, directed the Sheffield Anti-Bullying  Intervention Project, funded by the Department for Education

Here he reports on his findings 

Bullying can take a variety of forms, from the verbal - being taunted or called hurtful names - to the physical being kicked or shoved- as well as indirect forms, such as being excluded from social groups. A survey I  conducted with Irene Whitney found that in British primary schools up to a quarter of pupils reported  experience of bullying, which in about one in ten cases was persistent. There was less bullying in secondary  schools, with about one in twenty-five suffering persistent bullying, but these cases may be particularly  recalcitrant. 

Bullying is clearly unpleasant, and can make the child experiencing it feel unworthy and depressed. In extreme  cases, it can even lead to suicide, though this is thankfully rare. Victimised pupils are more likely to experience  difficulties with interpersonal relationships as adults, while children who persistently bully are more likely to  grow up to be physically violent, and convicted of anti-social offences. 


Until recently, not much was known about the topic, and little help was available to teachers to deal with  bullying. Perhaps as a consequence, schools would often deny the problem. 'There is no bullying at this school'  has been a common refrain, almost certainly all true. Fortunately, more schools are now saying: 'There is not  much bullying here, but when it occurs we have a clear policy for dealing with it.' 

Three factors are involved in this change. First is an awareness of the severity of the problem. Second, a number of resources to help tackle bullying have become available in Britain. For example, the Scottish Council for  Research in Education produced a package of materials, Action Against Bullying, circulated to all schools in  England and Wales as well as in Scotland in summer 1992, with a second pack, Supporting Schools Against  Bullying, produced the following year. In Ireland, Guidelines on Countering Bullying Behaviour in Post Primary Schools was published in 1993. Third, there is evidence that these materials work, and that schools can  achieve something. This comes from carefully conducted 'before and after' evaluations of interventions in  schools, monitored by a research team. In Norway, after an intervention campaign was introduced nationally, an evaluation of forty-two schools suggested that, over a two-year period, bullying was halved. The Sheffield  investigation, which involved sixteen primary schools and seven secondary schools, found that most schools  succeeded in reducing bullying. 

Evidence suggests that a key step is to develop a policy on bullying, saying clearly what is meant by bullying, and giving explicit guidelines on what will be done if it occurs, what records will be kept, who will be informed, what sanctions will be employed. The policy should be developed through consultation, over a period of time- not just imposed from the head teacher's office! Pupils, parents and staff should feel they have been involved in the policy, which needs to be disseminated and implemented effectively. Other actions can be taken to back up the policy. There are ways of dealing with the topic through the curriculum, using video, drama and literature. These are useful for raising awareness, and can best be tied into early phases of development, while the school is starting to discuss the issue of bullying. They are also useful in renewing the policy for new pupils or revising it in the light of experience. But curriculum work alone may only have short-term effects; it should be an addition to policy work, not a substitute. 

There are also ways of working with individual pupils, or in small groups. Assertiveness training for pupils who are liable to be victims is worthwhile, and certain approaches to group bullying such as 'no blame', can be useful in changing the behaviour of bullying pupils without confronting them directly, although other sanctions may be needed for those who continue with persistent bullying. 

Work in the playground is important, too. One helpful step is to train lunchtime supervisors to distinguish bullying from playful fighting and help them break up conflicts. Another possibility is to improve the playground environment, so that pupils are less likely to be led into bullying from boredom or frustration. 

With these developments, schools can expect that at least the most serious kinds of bullying can largely be prevented. The more effort put in and the wider the whole school involvement, the more substantial the results are likely to be. The reduction in bullying - and the consequent improvement in pupil happiness- is surely a worthwhile objective.
