24.Not so long ago polar bears were a symbol of cold, but these days they are a symbol of warmth.

But two things have put the polar bears on top of the vanishing ice, _____66_____ they pose unwittingly as the latest poster animals in a distinguished and photogenic parade of endangered pandas, gorillas, dolphins and whales.

Vicki Stevenson is a store manager who decides what items to accept for resale at a secondhand-clothing shop called Buffalo Exchange. It's part of a growing chain of stores in a growing __69__, and it just may be the cool place to find trendy fashions at a fair price this summer. The rise of fast fashion, which uses a speeded-up production cycle to rush designer-inspired clothes to moderately priced retailers like Zara and H&M, has __70__ new life into secondhand stores like Buffalo Exchange by boosting their supply of barely worn apparel. “H&M is our bread and butter,” says Stevenson, 27, as she flips through a carousel of blouses from H&M, American Apparel, Benetton and the Gap with prices __71__ from $7.50 to $14 apiece. 
Buffalo Exchange, which earned more than $3 million last year on $43 million __72__ , has 32 stores nationally, making it one of the largest purveyors of recycled clothing in the country. Three more stores are planned for this year. The number of resale shops is growing 5% annually, according to the National Association of Resale and Thrift Shops.

31.The automobile solved some very important problems for most people, but in doing so, poisoned our air, choked our cities with traffic, and contributed toward the destruction of some of the beauty of our natural landscape. Antibiotics certainly solved some significant problems for almost all people, but in doing so, resulted in the weakening of what we call our immune systems. Television solved several important problems, but in solving them, changed the nature of political discourse, led to a serious decline in literacy, and quite possibly made the traditional process of socializing children impossible. It is doubtful that one can think of a single technology that did not generate new problems as a result of its having solved an old problem. Of course, it is sometimes very difficult to know what new problems will arise as a result of a technological solution. Benedictine monks invented the mechanical clock in the thirteenth century in order to be more precise in performing their canonical prayers, which they needed to do seven times a day. Had they known that the mechanical clock would eventually be used by merchants as a means of establishing a standardized workday and then a standardized product – that is, that the clock would be used as an instrument for making money instead of serving God – the monks might have decided that their sundials and water clocks were quite sufficient. Had Gutenberg foreseen that his printing press with movable type would lead to the breakup of the Holy Roman Catholic and Apostolic Church, he surely would have used his old wine press to make wine but not books. In the thirteenth century perhaps it didn’t matter so much if people lacked technological vision; perhaps not even in the fifteenth century. But in the twenty-first century, we can no longer afford to move into the future with our eyes tightly closed.

35.According to a poll released on May 31, 2007, more than half of the American population who live within 50 miles of the coast do not believe they are vulnerable to hurricanes, tornados or flooding. Of the 1,100 adults polled, 52% said they have no family disaster plan, nearly a third have no hurricane survival kit and nearly 90% said they have done nothing to make their homes stronger. Nearly half of those with insurance polices have not reviewed them within the last year; 47% of policy owners said that they are not covered for flooding. “Despite the devastation of the 2004-2005 season, one mild season in 2006 has plunged Americans in hurricane-vulnerable states into a dangerous amnesia,” said Ron Sachs, executive director of the National Hurricane Survival Initiative, a public education and safety outreach partnership between government organizations, relief agencies, and corporations. The initiative is doing everything it can to urge people to prepare themselves for a busy storm season. In addition to the poll, it has launched an interactive website, a series of public service announcements and a 30-minute television program, The National Hurricane Survival Test, which air throughout hurricane season on more than 50 television and cable network affiliates. The initiative's message is simple: plan ahead. Secure your home, have a plan for your family, for the elderly, the disabled, and pets. Prepare your insurance claim. Have flashlights, first-aid kits and a three-day supply of food and water for each individual. Also, secure extra medicine.
