When the balls, called (6), first made an appearance in shops, it was widely believed that their only function was to frighten shoplifters. Their somewhat (7) appearance, the curious holes and red lights going on and off, certainly made the theory believable.

Members of Duran Duran told The Sunday Times, "Producing illegal tapes of something like Live Aid is criminal. These people are (2) the means that should help feed (3) Africans." The illegal tapes, manufactured by several different companies in Indonesia, have become best-sellers in the Far and Middle East, making (4) estimated at millions of dollars. Now IFPVP, the International Federation of Phonogram and Videogram Producers, which represents more than 600 record companies worldwide, is asking the British government to bring economic pressure on the Indonesian government to stop the (5) trade.

The federation received reports of at least 30 illegal versions of the tapes sold in many countries such as Singapore, Malaysia and Portugal, where you can, in fact, easily get the real ones. Indonesia has not signed international copyright (7), and the federation says no legal action can be taken against the people in that country. "It's big business," says Laing. "The people who (8) these tapes have large factories and their own relationships with the authorities."

Some of the remains were so well preserved - even down to boots and shoes, pins and needles, plants and insects - that every (10) of life at the time could be reconstructed. The York Archaeological Trust decided to convert the place into a museum and try to tell the story of Jorvik as it was a thousand years ago. To do so, it built the Jorvik Viking Centre in the huge hole created by the archaeologists. Two of the rows of buildings were (11) as we think they were. A further two were preserved just as the archaeological team discovered them, the ancient (12) set out as they were found in the late 1970's, deep below the new shopping centre, where they have (13) for centuries. In the Jorvik Viking Centre, people from the 20th century journey back in time to the 10th century in cars, which (14) move through the place. Meanwhile, modern time travellers watch the townspeople buying and selling, working and playing, in an atmosphere full of the sights, sounds and smells of 10th century Jorvik.

18 162-FUTURE OF RAIL TRANSPORT scenic railway rotting unloads unmanned bridge route worn out Unfortunately, England's highest main-line (1) station hangs on to life by a thread. Deserted and (2) since it was officially closed in 1970, Dent, situated high in the hills of Yorkshire, wakes up on six summer weekends each year, when a special charter train (3) walkers, sightseers and people who simply want to catch a train from the highest station, onto its platforms. However, even this limited existence may soon be brought to an end. Dent station, situated on the Carlisle railway line, is said to be the most scenic in the country, but no amount of (4) beauty can save the line from British Rail's financial problems. This year, for the sake of economy, the express trains which used to pass through Dent station have been put onto another (5). It is now an open secret that British Rail sees no future for this railway line. Most of its trains disappeared some time ago. The stations on it, besides its (6), built on a grand scale a century ago, are falling down. It is not alone. Half a dozen railway routes in the north of England are facing a similar threat. The problem is a (7) system and an almost total lack of means to repair it. Bridges and tunnels are showing their age, the wooden supports for the tracks are (8) and engines and coaches are getting old. delighted branch discouraging solution On major lines between large cities, there is no problem. These lines still make a profit and money can be found to maintain them, but on the country (9) line the story is rather sad. As a track wears out, it is not replaced. Instead, speed limits are introduced, making journeys longer than necessary and (10) customers who live in the country and who travel only from time to time. If a bridge is dangerous, there is often only one thing for British Rail to do: go out and find money from another source. This is exactly what it did a few months ago, when a bridge at Bridlington station was threatening to fall down. Repairs were estimated at 200,000 and British Rail was (11), and rather surprised, when the local authorities of two nearby towns offered half that amount between them. This was a good (12), which the British Rail can always make use of.

Their findings show that six of the ten warmest years so far have occurred during the 1980's, with 1988 the (3) of all. Since 1900, average temperatures have risen by about 0.5 C, which fits in well with (4) from climatologists about how human activities should have warmed the planet. The factors that contribute to the (5) of the atmosphere are mainly carbon dioxide gas, produced by the burning of fossil fuels and forests, pollutants, such as chlorofluorocarbons, used in (6), and methane. damage severe reduce continent tendency Climatologists predict that by midway through the next century, temperatures may have risen by as much as 4 C.

Phil Jones, senior researcher at the University of East Anglia, said: "If we are changing the climate, we should do something now rather than wait until the warming is more (9)." Dr. Paul Heaton and Dr. David Parker of the Meteorological Office gathered together temperature records from about 1000 different locations spread across every (10) and compared them with the average for those places from 1951 to The research also included temperatures measured on ships. The scientists found 1989 was 0.23 C above the average, and 1988 was 0.31 above. They agree with American researchers that the warmest years during this century were the eighties, and the (11) may be for the nineties to be even hotter!

20 164-COMETS from Illustrated London News,1985 launched streaks visibly comets There can be few people who have not heard of (1), but there are still a great many non-scientists who have no real idea of what a comet is. The most popular mistake is to assume that a comet (2) across the sky and disappears in a few seconds. in fact, all comets are very distant - far beyond the top of the earth's atmosphere - and you cannot see them moving. If you see an object moving (3), It certainly cannot be a comet. It will be either an artificial satellite, thousands of which have been (4) since the Space Age opened with Russia's Sputnik 1 in October, 1957, or else a meteor. Of course, it can also be a weather balloon or a high-flying aircraft. rocky tail thin unlike massive damage Comets belong to the Sun's family, or solar system, but they are quite (5) planets. They are not solid and (6) ; a comet consists of an icy central part (or nucleus), a head (or coma) and a (7) or tails made up of tiny particles of 'dust' together with extremely (8) gas. Comets may be enormous (the head of the Great Comet of 1843 was larger than the Sun), but they are very light since the nucleus, the only relatively (9) part of a comet, cannot be more than a few miles in diameter. If a comet fell to the earth, it would only cause local (10). rare paths predict elliptical naked unusual Comets move around the Sun.

This means that we cannot (13) them. During the last century, several were seen but in our own time they have been extremely (14). The last really 'great' comet was that of 1910, though there have been others which have become bright enough to be seen with the (15) eye. Halley's Comet is unique because it appears every 76 years, and it has been seen regularly since well before the time of Christ; there is even a Chinese record of it dating back to 1059 B.C. However, it was only recently that astronomers realized that there was something (16) about it.

22 165-EFFECTS OF SNOW arrival observe miracle unheard regarded It is interesting to (1) the effect that the arrival of snow has on people in different countries. There are those countries for whom the (2) of the first snow showers is an expected annual event. There are those countries for whom the arrival of snow at any time of the year would be almost (3) of, and would be (4) as a major climatic catastrophe, or even a (5). disrupted havoc quantities expect just in case But there are countries between these two 'extremes' that normally (6) snow some time over the winter months, but never receive it regularly or in the same (7) every year. For them (and Britain is a prime example of such a country), the arrival of snow quite simply creates (8). Within hours of the first snowfalls, however light, roads (including motorways) are blocked, train services are (9) and bus services to suburbs and country districts are withdrawn. Normal communications quickly begin to suffer as well; telephone calls become difficult and the post immediately takes twice as long as usual. And almost within hours there are also certain shortages -bread, vegetables and other essentials - not because all these things can no longer be produced or even delivered, although deliveries are disrupted, but mainly because people panic and go out and stock up with food and so on - (10). elderly snowploughs preparation blame grit But why does snow have this effect? After all, the Swiss, the Austrians and the Canadians don't have such problems. The answer is quite simply a lack of planning and (11) - and we can't (12) the weather forecasters for that. We have to remember, however, that equipment needed for dealing with snow and ice costs money. To keep the roads clear, for example, requires (13) and vehicles to spread (14) or salt. The argument against investing in snowploughs in a country like Britain is that they are only used for a few days in any one year, and that money could more usefully be put into other things such as the hospital system, social services, helping the (15), and so on.
