America's largest fast-food (7) and frequent target of environmental (8) announced last week that it would begin phasing out foam packaging within 60 days at its 8,500 U.S. restaurants. The move came as a surprise. The company has long said the containers were not necessarily a problem and had planned a $100 million campaign to (9) them. But ecology-minded customers were increasingly unhappy with the packages. As a result, McDonald's is making the phaseout part of a broad pro-environment initiative that the company is developing in partnership with the Washington-based Environmental Defense Fund. solution wrap discarded landfills McDonald's will probably replace its foam hamburger boxes with material similar to the thin paper used to (10) its smallest sandwiches.

But it takes up 90% less space than foam when (13), and McDonald's is testing a paper-recycling technique in some of its California stores.

Today there is one divorce in Britain for every three marriages. (in the USA the rate is one in two.) Many people have suggested that the higher divorce rates reflect an (14) increase in marital (15) ; the problem with this argument is that we have no way of knowing how many 'unstable' or 'unhappy' marriages existed before legislation made it possible to dissolve them in a public (and recordable) form. Some (16) have gone further and argued that more (17) divorce laws in themselves cause marital breakdown. But we can certainly be (18) of such a view, suggesting as it does that happily married couples can suddenly be persuaded to abandon their relationship, propelled by the attraction of a new divorce law. A more (19) explanation for rises in the divorce rate after the passage of a law is that unhappily married couples were for the first time given access to a legal solution to pre-existent marital problems; in other words, changes in divorce laws are less likely to cause marital breakdown than to provide new types of solutions where breakdown has already occurred.

While success in the business world may require a high degree of business (4), this quality has never before been considered a personal virtue. Today it is the achievement that counts, not the personal qualities of the individual. Sometimes success is achieved by qualities that are anything but virtuous.

The author of six good books may be less of a success than the writer of one best seller. What does count is the (8). Without recognition one cannot be considered a public success. To achieve success means to rise above the crowd, to (9) from the mass of people and be recognized as an individual. For the writer, it means that what he says or writes is now (10) as important. "He counts" is the way one successful author was described. Before his success, he didn't 'count' although what he wrote before his success may have had greater value than his (11) work.

Yet, the response to such treatments was hardly uniform. Some patients (5) much better in their therapies than others. joyous confidence persevere common What was it, then, that was different? Was there any one thing that all survivors had in (6)? Yes I have found that the major characteristics of these survivors were very similar.

16 110-MEMORY stimulus auditory storage short-term Memory, like sweatshirts, comes in three sizes. There is a sensory (1) system which can hold information for only a very brief time period. Next is a (2) storage which can hold a small amount of information. Finally, you have a long-term storage system which holds vast amounts of ieftimeperiod. What psychological processes are involved in remembering a (3) which is briefly perceived, such as the license number of a car? Psychologists have discovered that a stimulus is maintained in a sensory storage system which holds information for less than a second. The sensory storage system is called iconic memory if visual stimuli are involved or echoic memory if the stimulation is (4). rehearsal prolong distinguish retrieval voluntary assume that Your sensory storage system appears to operate in a fairly automatic way. There seems to be no (5) action you can take to (6) the life of information from sensory storage without using the next stage of memory, called short-term memory (STM), or primary memory. Information can be recycled in short-term memory by a process called (7). When rehearsal is prevented or disrupted, information in short-term memory is lost and so cannot enter long-term memory (LTM). However, once information has entered long-term memory, rehearsal is no longer necessary to guarantee that information is not forgotten. While preventing items from being forgotten is the major difficulty in short-term memory, long-term memory suffers from the opposite problem. There is so much information contained in long-term memory that locating and retrieving this information can be quite difficult. Indeed, psychologists (8) between information which is available in long-term memory and that which is accessible. All information in long-term memory is considered available; that is, it can be remembered under the proper circumstances. But only that information which actually is remembered is accessible. Thus, accessible information is always available, but available information cannot always be accessible. The process of obtaining memory information from wherever it is stored is called (9). In order for information to be accessible, it must fırst be retrieved. Retrieval of information from long-term memory is a difficult process and is not always successful. Retrieval from short-term memory is considerably easier, and many models of short-term memory (10) if an item is available in short-term memory, it is automatically.accessible. interference long-term features respective While information in short-term memory is coded primarily by acoustic (11) (how the words sound when spoken), information in (12) memory is organized primarily according to what the words mean. While (13) in short-term memory is based upon acoustic relationships, interference in long-term memory occurs among semantically related words. The most dramatic distinction between short and long-term memory systems lies in their (14) capacities - the number of items each system can store. Short-term memory has a very limited capacity compared to the almost unlimited storage capacity of long-term memory.

18 111-EDUCATION IN BRITAIN comprehensive guidelines withholds pupils conservatives Education in Britain is primarily the responsibility of local educational authorities although the central government lays down (1) and provides or (2) money. From the end of the Second World War until the 1960's, education under state control depended on the '11-plus' examination, taken by all (3) between the ages of eleven and twelve. The most successful went to grammar schools or direct-grant schools, while the rest went to secondary modern schools. Since the 1960's, almost all local authorities have introduced (4) schools, where all pupils attend the same school, even though there is usually an attempt to separate them according to ability once they are there. Local authorities where the Labour Party is usually in control tend, by now, to be almost completely comprehensive; those where the (5) hold power have been more resistant to the change. independent examination refused Throughout this period, the public schools, which are private in all except name, have continued to exist, (6) of the state system. Some became direct-grant schools, accepting students who had passed the 11- plus (7) and were paid for by local authorities, but this system came to an end in many cases when a Labour-controlled local authority (8) to go on paying the grants because of its commitment to comprehensive education. prestigious revive unabated reluctance stems The public debate in England and Wales between the supporters of comprehensive schools and those who want to retain or (9) grammar schools continues (10). Every year statistics are produced to demonstrate that comprehensive schools provide better education than grammar schools (and in some cases, better than the (11) private sector). These statistics are immediately contradicted by others proving the opposite. The local authorities have, on the whole, been converted to the comprehensive system, in some cases with enthusiasm, in others with marked (12). Yet, the real complication of the debate (13) from the fact that although arguments are usually stated in educational terms, almost all of them are based on political opinions. discrimination associate abolished strengthens evidence inferior It is clear that those local authorities that have (14) grammar schools completely were determined that their experiment should succeed because of their belief that it is just as wrong to separate children by intelligence as by social class. Such authorities tend to (15) grammar schools with the private sector they would also like to abolish if they had the opportunity. In their view, any system that differentiates between children (16) class barriers, and the fact that more upper-class children tend to go to university is not (17) that comprehensive schools are (18) ; it is merely further evidence of the (19) that already exists in society. potential intelligence The defenders of grammar schools use examination results to show that children reach their maximum (20) when placed with others of similar (21) and point out that even in comprehensive schools they are put in different classes according to ability. it is difficult to believe, however, that this defence is inspired purely by a desire for academic excellence.

In the past, many doctors were taught to (2) the body has a relatively (3), or homeostatic, internal environment. Any (4) were considered random and not meaningful enough to be studied. ultimately spread mice receives As early as the 1940's, however, some scientists questioned the homeostatic view of the body. Franz Halberg, a young European scientist working in the United States, conducted a series of experiments on (5) and noticed that the number of white blood cells in these animals was dramatically higher and lower at different times of the day. Gradually, such research (6) to the study of biological rhythms in human beings, and the findings were sometimes startling. For example, the time of day when a person (7) X-ray or drug treatment for cancer can affect treatment benefits and (8) mean the difference between life and death. rethink supporting persuasive literally enhance This new science, the study of biological rhythms in human beings, is called chronobiology, and the evidence (9) it has become increasingly (10). Along the way, the scientific and medical communities are beginning to (11) their ideas about how the human body works, and gradually what had been considered a minor science just a few years ago is being studied in major universities and medical centers around the world. With their new findings, they are teaching us things that can (12) change our lives - by helping us organize ourselves so we can work with our natural rhythms rather than against them. This can (13) our outlook on life as well as our performance at work. alertness detect obvious amid peak, take heed efficient Because they are easy to (14) and measure, more is known of daily - or circadian (Latin for 'about a day') - rhythms than other types.

Most of us seem to reach our (18) of alertness around noon. Soon after that, alertness declines, and sleepiness may set in by mid-afternoon. Your short-term memory is best during the morning - in fact, about 15 per cent more (19) than at any other time of day. So, students, (20) : when faced with a morning exam, it really does pay to review your notes right before the test is given. the wee hours believe executives recall Long-term memory is different. Afternoon is the best time for learning material that you want to (21) days, weeks or months later. Politicians, business (22) or others who must learn speeches would be smart to do their memorizing during that time of day. If you are a student, it would be better for you to schedule your more difficult classes in the afternoon, rather than in the morning. You should also try to do most of your studying in the afternoon, rather than late at night. Many students (23) they memorize better while burning the mid-night oil because their short-term recall is better during (24) of the morning than in the afternoon. But short-term memory won't help them much several days later, when they face the exam.
