Jazz, from its early roots in slave spirituals and the marching bands of New Orleans, had developed into the predominant American musical style by the 1930s. In this era, jazz musicians played a lush, orchestrated style known as swing. Playing in large ensembles, also called big bands, swing filled the dance halls and nightclubs. Jazz, once considered risqué, was made more accessory to the masses with the vibrant, swinging sounds of these big bands. Then came bebop. In the mid-1940s, jazz musicians strayed to the swing style and developed a more improvisational method of playing known as bebop. Jazz was transformed from popular music to elite art form. The soloists in the big bands improvised from the melody. The young musicians who ushered in bebop, notably trumpeter Dizzy Gillespie and saxophonist Charlie 

Parker, expanded on the improvisational elements of the big bands. They played with advanced harmonies, changed chord structures, and made chord substitutions. These young musicians got their starts with the leading big bands of the day, but during World War II - as older musicians was drafted and dance halls made cut-off - they started to play together in smaller groups.

They live under a constant pressure of being (3) and subsequently replaced by someone who is younger,faster and more accomplished. For that reason, objectives like retirement benefits and pensions are (4). great concern to all professional athletes. Some of the retired. competitors go as far as to organize strikes and rallies to voice their protest against any policy unresponsive to their demand (5)__________ the younger professionals seek more upgrading solutions to the problem as more and more of them attach a proper significance to (6) a solid education, even at university level. Such an approach should help them find interesting and well-paid jobs (7) their sports career is over. 

A completely new strategy has been devised by the schools priding themselves (8) supporting their own teams. Their authorities insist that the sports clubs members achieve high academic standards or they are debarred from partaking in certain sports events, (9) 

may lead to further disruption in their professional career. 

By these practical and most effective means, combining education with sports activity, the (10) of the professional athlete as being brainless and unintelligent may eventually be changing to the sportsmen's benefit.

Part 2: Fill in each gap with a suitable word (2 pts) There is no other race (1) quite like it, no other race in a play so inaccessible, no other race. which puts the body through an unendurable test (2) of such extremes. The Antarctic Ice Marathon was the brainchild of Richard Donovan, (3)whose company, Polar running Adventures, give runner the opportunity to partake in a race through the barren wasteland that is the snow-covered Union glacier. Last year, there were some 34 participants in the race, and, this time, the number of entrants is expected to be higher still; such has been the level of interest shown by members of the public, (4)amateur and professional athletes and the media (5) alike 

But, while the prospect of being part of as unique an experience as the Antarctic Ice Marathon is, seems, on the (6)face it, a rather agreeable notion, (7) those considering putting their names in the mix would do well to be mindful of just how intense and demanding (8)both physically and psychologically, the event can be.

But if you still fancy (10)giving it a go, get in touch with Richard and he can make your dream come true. 

Part 3. Read the following passage and choose the correct answer to each of the questions (2 ps) 

Population ecology is the science that measures changes in population size and composition and identifies the causes of these fluctuations. Population ecology is not concerned solely with the human population. In ecological terms, a population consists of the individuals of one species that Simultaneously occupy the same general area, rely on the same resources, and are affected by similar environmental factors. The characteristics of a population are shaped by its size and by the interactions among individuals and between individuals and their environment. 

Population size is a balance between factors that increase numbers and factors that increase numbers and factors that decrease numbers. Some factors that increase populations are favourable light and temperature, adequate food supply, suitable habitat, ability to compete for resource, and ability to adapt to environmental change. Factors that decrease populations are insufficient or excessive light and temperature, inadequate food supply, unsuitable or destroyed habitat, too many competitors for resources, and inability to adapt to environmental change. 

Another important characteristic of any population is its density. Population density is the number of individuals per units, such as the number of maple trees per square kilometer in a county. Ecologists can rarely determine population size by actually counting all Individuals within geographical boundaries. Instead, they often use a variety of sampling techniques to estimate densities and total population sizes. For example, they might estimate the number 

of black bears in a national park by counting individuals in a few sample plots representative of the whole park. In some cases, they estimate population size through indirect indicators, such as the number of nests or burrows, or signs such as tracks or droppings. 

Another important population characteristic, dispersion, is the pattern of spacious among Individuals within the population's geographical boundaries. Various species are distributed In their habitats in different ways to take better advantage of food supplies and shelter, and to avoid predators or find prey. Within a population's range, densities may vary greatly because not all areas provide equally suitable habitat, and also because individuals space themselves in relation to other members of the population. 

Three possible patterns of dispersion are clumped, uniform, and random. A clumped dispersion pattern means that individuals are gathered in patches throughout their habitat. Clumping often results from the irregular distribution of resources needed for survival and reproduction. For example, fallen trees keep the forest floor moist, and many forest insects are clumped under logs where the humidity is to their liking. Clumping may also be associated with mating, safety, or other social behavior. Crane flies, for example, swarm in great numbers, a behavior that increases mating chances, and some fish swim in large schools so they are less likely to be eaten by predators. 

A uniform or evenly spaced distribution results from direct interactions among individuals in the population. For example, regular spacing of plants may result from shading and competitions for water, In animal populations, uniform distribution is usually caused by competition for some resource or by social interactions that set up individual territories for feeding, breeding, or testing., 

Random spacing occurs in the absence of strong attraction or repulsion among individuals in a population. Overall, random pattern are rare in nature, with most populations. showing a tendency toward either clumped or uniform distribution. 

Populations change in size, structure, and distribution as they respond to changes in environmental conditions. Four main variables- births, deaths, immigration and emigration - determine the rate of change in the size of the population over time, A change In the birth rate or death is the major way that most populations respond to changes in resource availability, Members of some animal species can avoid or reduce the effects of another with more favorable environmental conditions, thus altering the population's dispersion.
