Others in the field say chiropractors should focus on musculoskeletal disorders such as back pain, 18 evidence for efficacy is the strongest. Though conventional practitioners have often scorned them 19 making unfounded claims, chiropractors are now 20 as mainstream health-care providers. Many health plans now cover their services, and they regularly care for clients ranging from the 21 ill to professional athletes. An estimated 8.6 percent of adults in the U.S. have used chiropractic or osteopathic manipulation, 22 the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine. Chiropractors typically apply a sudden force to a region of the spine to help 23 a stiff joint, which they say allows the body’s natural healing process to take over. During an initial visit, the chiropractor typically takes a health history and 24 a physical exam, focusing on the spine. X-rays may be taken, and spinal adjustments may be applied 25 a patient lying face down or sideways on a table.

26.The 2009 H1N1 influenza outbreak put the entire world on alert. In 2003, SARS crossed the world, 26 in Asia and reaching Canada in less than a day. Then, in 2012, a new virus, named Middle-East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS), emerged and continued to spread globally with outbreaks now taking place in South Korea. The current outbreak there has led to more than 30 deaths and hundreds of people in27 . In 2014, the Ebola virus has 28 more than 30,000 people across ten countries to date. Experts agree that potential epidemics and future outbreaks may occur, but the lessons learned from previous ones should enable a faster response. The key is to identify the virus, to estimate its threat and its potential to spread across a population, and to put a 29 preparedness plan into action. However, the challenge is that the world is ill prepared for severe and sustained disease because human behavior plays a key role in the spread of a disease and is much harder to predict, as was the case for Ebola, where burial traditions and cultural practices aided 30 when the outbreak emerged.

31.【Reading Comprehension】 Radiocarbon dating and tree-dating, in combination, have provided a very powerful tool to establish a time spectrum for more recent dates in the past. The initial idea for dating by tree rings can be traced back to 1811. Modern scientific tree-ring dating, dendrochronology, stems from pioneering work in early 1900s. Usually, but not always, trees produce one ring each year. This ring is formed by the cambium, which lies between the old wood and the bark. In spring, wood cells with large lumens are manufactured, but in summer and autumn, the cells become smaller and more thick-walled until the onset of winter, in which the production of a new cell stops. The same process is repeated in the following year. In this way a year’s growth (annual ring) is imprinted as new wood. The demarcation line between summer and autumn wood of the previous year, with its characteristic small cells, and the spring wood of the year following, with its large cells, enables annual rings to be counted relatively easily. Growth rings, however, are not always the same thickness. They vary for several reasons. Environmental factors rigidly control the degree of growth of an annual ring or determine whether, in fact, an annual ring appears or not in any particular year. Thus in a specific locale or, more accurately, a specific climatic province, tree-ring counts will reflect climatic conditions and variations due to inequalities of climate from year to year. In years with abnormal drought, for example, narrow rings are produced and sometimes no ring at all. In this way a fossil record is imprinted for as long as the wood remains intact. From this pattern a historical template can be constructed to correlate one set of growth rings in one tree with a set of growth rings in another tree or piece of timber. Another important factor is that tree-ring growth varies with age of the tree. As the tree matures, the rings become narrower, and this results in the central rings being wider than those on the outer part of the tree.

(A) The effect of drought on tree-ring growth.
(B) The history of dating trees.
(C) The problems of tree-ring dating.
