It is one thing to watch the games, and it is another to know its history. In this short article, the Olympics, past and present, is revealed to you. The first recorded Olympics, in 776 B.C., were an important religious festival. But they merely included athletes from approximately a dozen cities. 37 Unlike today, the ancient games were always at Olympia, Greece. Olympic sports have also changed a lot in the last few thousands years. The ancient games began with just one 192-meter race. In later years, the games grew to include a total of six sports. 38 These included races where runners wore fighting equipment and the pankration—a violent sport with few rules. Even the modern Olympics were once much smaller than they are today. The first of the modern games, in 1896, only had 241 athletes from 14 countries. 39 Until 1908 the Olympics were part of the world’s fair! At the first modern Olympics, there were 43 events from ten sports. Many of the sports from the early modern games are no longer part of the Olympics. 40 There has always been a lot of disagreement over changing Olympic sports. Critics say that the modern games have become more of a popularity contest than an athletic competition. The number of Olympic sports has continuously increased throughout history. At the 2008 Beijing games, athletes competed in 302 events from 28 sports. 41 These include running, boxing and wrestling. After learning the history and transformation of the Olympics, have you become interested in watching the games? Are you encouraged to work harder, go faster and be stronger?
(A) Most of the ancient Olympic sports tested skills soldiers needed.
(B) Despite all the changes over the years, some ancient sports are still part of the modern games.
(C) These include the sports of golf and tug of war.
(D) Even after 200 years, the ancient games only included Greek men from roughly 100 cities around the Mediterranean.
(E) Moreover, the early modern Olympics were not an independent event.

46. How do you choose a career? Many students finish high school and begin college without a clear idea of what they want to do in life. Part of the problem is the size and complexity of the job market itself. Seven hundred and sixty three different occupations were listed in a recent publication of the United States Department of Labor, and this list is probably incomplete. With so many kinds of work, how can you tell which one will interest you? And what about the job outlook? Some of these occupations are already overcrowded. In old industries, there may be little need for new workers, whereas new and growing industries will offer good jobs now and in the future. Finally, how can you make the best use of your own special talents? Those who know themselves often find the best jobs.

48. There is no question that hunger and starvation are still common in the world today. Major famines in which hundreds of thousands of people die still strike every few years in the developing world. But the root cause of hunger is not a lack of food. The problem lies in the distribution of the available supplies. There is enough food in the world for everyone to eat an adequate diet, but it is not spread around equally. An examination of the recent famines in places like Ethiopia illustrates this point. In most cases, the countries where the famines struck had enough food per person, but a drop in production meant a rise in prices. This in turn meant that the poorest people in the country couldn’t afford to buy the food that was available. During many famines, in fact, food continues to be exported out of these countries while people are starving. So if we want to really eliminate hunger, we have to first find a way to ensure a fairer distribution of the wealth needed to purchase food.

50. More people are traveling these days than ever before, both for business and adventure. As the people of the world get more closely-connected, many individuals are eager to learn a second or third language. Some are even traveling just for this purpose. Although speaking in a new language can be very difficult, with some tips you can smooth the communication process. For example, when speaking a foreign language, you may be in a situation where others don’t understand what you have said. But don’t get upset; instead, try to make yourself understood by using different expressions, by describing what you mean, by writing it down, or by using gestures. Most people will be patient if they see that you are sincerely trying to get yourself across. Don’t give up until you have tried a few different methods. If you have difficulty understanding someone, you can ask the speaker to repeat what he or she has said more slowly. You can also ask questions to clarify the speaker’s meaning or ask the speaker to make his point in another way. And remember, the sense of accomplishment you will get from communicating in another language will be worth the effort. So, just try as hard as you can and don’t be afraid of making mistakes.
