Lionel Messi was born Luis Lionel Andres Messi on June 24, 1987, in Rosario, Argentina. As a
young boy, he tagged along when his two older brothers played soccer with their friends,
unintimidated by the bigger boys. At the age of 8, he was recruited to join the youth system of
Newell's Old Boys, a Rosario-based club. Recognizably smaller than most of the kids in his age
group, Messi was eventually diagnosed by doctors as suffering from a hormone deficiency that
restricted his growth.
Messi's parents, Jorge and Ceclia, decided on a regimen of nightly growth-hormone injections for
their son, though it soon proved impossible to pay several hundred dollars per month for the
medication. So, at the age of 13, when Messi was offered the chance to train at soccer powerhouse
FC Barcelona's youth academy, La Masia, and have his medical bills covered by the team, Messi's
family picked up and moved across the Atlantic to make a new home in Spain.
Although he was often homesick in his new country, Messi moved quickly through the junior
system ranks, and by the age of 16, he had made his first appearance for Barcelona. Messi put
himself in the record books on May 1, 2005, as the youngest player to ever score a goal for the
franchise. That same year, he led Argentina to the title in the under-20 World Cup, scoring on a pair
of penalty kicks to propel the team over Nigeria.

southwestern Europe, Southeast Asia, Sumatra, some islands of Japan, and in parts of Africa and
South America. They are not naturally found in most of Eurasia, where a number of species of hares

As “Alien” famously reminded us, “In space no one can hear you scream,” but they didn‟t mention
anything about heavy breathing. “Gravity,” a new space thriller starring Sandra Bullock and George
Clooney as two astronauts adrift in the wild blue yonder, features more heavy breathing than a Linda
Beginning with an uninterrupted 15-minute opening shot, director Alfonso Cuarón presents a
spacy story about medical engineer Dr. Ryan Stone (Bullock) and astronaut Matt Kowalsky
(Clooney). She‟s an uptight novice; he‟s a wisecracking vet on his final mission.
It‟s routine stuff -- or as routine as space travel ever gets -- until a debris storm, comprised of bits
and pieces of old satellites, chunks of metal traveling as fast as bullets, crashes into their space
shuttle. Stone is knocked “off structure” and drifting through the inky darkness while Kowalsky uses
his experience and calm to rescue her. Cue the heavy breathing as her oxygen slowly runs out and
panic sets in.

The story is one of survival, but screenwriter Cuarón (who co-wrote it with his son Jonás) hasn‟t
simply written a horror film about imminent disaster. Stone signed up for outer space travel to
isolate herself from a personal tragedy, but when the chips are down she finds new meaning in her
But “Gravity,” while beautiful to look at, is occasionally too in love with its technique.The 17-
minute long uninterrupted shot that starts the film is spectacular and overall the look will make your
eyeballs dance but then there‟s a scene where we see Sandra Bullock reflected in one of her own,
gravity free, tears. It‟s a great image but one that feels a bit too clever. It was one of the few times in
the film that I thought I was watching a special effect.

Genes can be a factor of in high cholesterol, but so can being overweight, being physically inactive,
and eating foods loaded with saturated fat and cholesterol. The liver manufactures all the cholesterol
a body needs, but many people get substantial amounts from their diet. Regardless of their cause,
high cholesterol poses dangers. It plays a major role in the development of atherosclerosis, or
hardening and narrowing of the arteries, which in turn raises the risk of heart attack or stroke.
When doctors talk about high cholesterol, they don‟t mean the amount of cholesterol a person
gets from food, but rather how much of the substance is circulating in the blood. With
atherosclerosis, the specific culprit is elevated LDL cholesterol, the “bad” kind associated with
“increased risk of heart attacks and dying of heart disease,” says Antonio M.Gotto Jr, MD., a
professor of medicine at Weill Medical College of Cornell University and an expert on cholesterol
and atherosclerosis. Atherosclerosis is a gradual process.”It can start early in life,” Gotto says. Fatty
streaks can show up in adolescent arteries, and autopsies on men in their 20s have revealed
”Significant plaque in coronary arteries.” he adds. ”It doesn‟t just occur overnight.” Over time, this
plaque buildup can turn into a serious health threat, boosting risk of heart attack and stroke as people
enter their 40s, 50s, and 60s. Gotto says, ”Coronary disease shows a sharp increase during the 50s in
men, and the late 50s and 60s in women.
Considering the dangers of high cholesterol, we should maintain our ideal weight, consume
healthy food and do exercise regularly.

While publishing for the K-12 school market is an $8 billion industry, with three companies –
McGraw-Hill, Pearson, and Houghton Mifflin Harcourt – capturing about 85% of this market,
tablets are a $35 billion industry with roughly one in three adults owning a tablet. As tablets have
become more prevalent, a new debate has formed over whether K-12 school districts should switch
from print textbooks to digital textbooks on tablets.
Proponents of tablets say that they are supported by most teachers and students, are much lighter
than print textbooks, and improve standardized test scores. They say tablets can hold hundreds of
textbooks, save the environment by lowering the amount of printing, increase student interactivity
and creativity, and that that digital textbooks are cheaper than print textbooks.
Opponents of tablets say that they are expensive, too distracting for students, easy to break, and
costly or time-consuming to fix. They say that tablets contribute to eyestrain, headaches, and blurred
vision, increase the excuses available for students not doing their homework, require costly Wi-Fi
networks, and become quickly outdated as new technologies emerge.
When a district plans to use tablets to replace textbook, they have to think deeply the strength and
the constraints of tablets and discuss it with the stakeholders.
41. The purpose of the text is ….
A. to oppose the use of tablets
B. to explain the benefits of tablets
C. to inform the weaknesses of tablets
D. to recommend educators to use tablets
E. to discuss the controversial issue of tablets

A. Being unsafe
B. Being difficult to carry
C. Requiring a special bag
D. Needing a long time to repair
E. Provoking higher consumption

Like all living things, trees need nourishment in order to be able to grow. Where does the tree obtain
From the soil, the tree obtain water and minerals. From the air, it takes in carbon dioxide. And
the green of the leaves of trees harnesses the energy of the sun‟s rays to make starches, sugars, and
cellulose. So the tree carries on a chemical process of its own in order to be able to live and grow.
Between the wood of a tree and its bark, there is a thin band of living, dividing cells called “the
cambium.” As new cells are formed here, those that are formed on the wood side of the cambium
mature as wood. The cells formed toward the outside mature as bark. In this way, as the tree grows
older it increases in diameter.
The diameter of the woody part of the tree continues to grow greater and greater. But this doesn‟t
always happen with the bark. Often the outer bark becomes broken, dies, and falls off.
Trees grow in height as well as in diameter. At the en of each branch or twig there is a group of
living cells. During periods of active growth, these cells keep dividing, producing many more cells.
These new cells enlarge and form new leaves as well as additional portions of the stem or twig. In
this way, the twig grows longer.
After a time, these cells at the tip of the twig become less active and the twig grows longer more
slowly. Then the new cells are firm and scale-like and they form a bud. You can easily notice these
buds on trees during the winter.
In the spring, the bud scales are spread apart or fall off and the twig starts growing longer again.
So you see that by means of the cambium layer in the tree, and by means of the active cells at the
tips of twigs, trees may grow both in thickness and in length, year after year.
44. The text mainly explains about ….
A. how trees grow
B. when trees grow
C. where trees grow
D. various kinds of trees
E. how trees are planted
45. “In this way, as the tree grows older it increases in diameter.” (Paragraph 3)
The word “it” refers to ….

Doctors have recently started to study the causes of a medical disorder which they have
appropriately named SAD, or seasonal affective disorder. People who suffer from SAD become
very depressed during the (48)… months. Their depression appears to be the result of a decrease in
the amount of sunlight they are (49)…to. Doctors theorize that decreased sunlight affects the
production of melatonin, a hormone manufactured in the brain, and serotonin, a chemical that helps
transmit nerve impulses. Depression may result from the ensuing imbalance of these two substances
in the body. (50)…, doctors believe that a decrease in the amount of sunlight the body receives may
cause a disturbance in the body‟s natural clock, which could, in turn, result in symptoms such as
listlessness, oversleeping, weight gain, anxiety, and irritability all symptoms of depression.
