HOUSE HUSBAND’S HEART RISK Most people assume that life in the rat race is bad for your health. But reversing the traditional gender roles, being a house husband is a stressful business, according to the latest research by American scientist. By giving up their jobs in order to become house husbands, men increase their risk of heart attack or coronary disease by as much as 82%, according to research based on 10 year study of 2,500 people in Boston, USA. Accoding to Dr. Elaine Eaker, the key to the problem is that some men became stressed about performing a role not traditionally assigm to them by society. Men who stays at home tend not to have the same levels of support from friends and family as women do the same. Jack O’Sullivan, of the Father’s Direct, was quoted as saying: “Society expects the main career should be a woman and society is structured around that. Day care is called mother and toddler groups and some men feel awkward about belonging to those groups. Professor Gary Cooper, a psychologist at the University of Manchester, said many men tend to underestimate the task of caring for a family. He said “Most men think being a house husband involves putting on a bit of washing, taking the kids to school and then putting their feet up with a cup of coffee. They are crazy. Most men are not used to performing a variety of activities simultanously – the kind of multi-tasking which is second nature to most women. It is estimated that men have taken over the main homemaker’s role in one in seven homes, as increasing numbers of women become the main breadwinner. The study also found that women in high-powered jobs were more likely to develop heart disease than those in more junior positions.

A psychologist B. Jack O’Sullivan C. Dr Elaine Eaker D. An American scientist E. Professor Gary Cooper

A farmer came across a bird with a broken wing. He picked it u, took it home and looked after it lovingly, even though his wife complained bitterly about his wasting too much time on the creature. After some time, the wing mended and, because the bird did not want the farmer to have kept on arguing with his wife all the time, it decided to go back to its nest.

The ethnic groups in the mountain regions of southwest and central Sulawasi (Celebes) are known by the name of Toraja, which has come to mean “those who live upstream” or “those who live in the mountains”. Their name is in fact derived from the word Raja, which in Sanskrit means “king”. The society is hierarchically structured: the noblemen are called rengnge, the ordinary people to makaka, and the slaves to kaunan; birth determines which rank a person will occupy. The distinctive features of the traditional houses (tongkonan) of the Toraja are the “buffalo horns”, the roof design and the rich decoration on the walls. The buffalo is a symbol of status, courage, strength and fighting spirit. Designed as a rpresentation of the universe, the tongkonan is constructed in three parts: the upper world (the roof), the world of humans (the middle of the building), and the underworld (the space under the floor). The highly distinctive roofs constructed by Toraja have given rise to various ingenious interpretations. Certainly the roof is something of deep significance for the Toraja, and even today they bulid “modern” (in other words houses bulit with cement) houses with such roofs.

Antibiotic is a drug produced by certain microbes. Antibiotics destroy other microbes that damage human tissues. They are used to treat a wide variety of diseases, including gonorrhea, tonsillitis and tuberculosis. Antibiotic are sometimes called ‘wonder drugs’ because they can cure diseases such as meningitis, pneumonia and scarlet fever. But when the antibiotics are overused, or misused, these drugs make a person sensitive being attacked by superbug. Antibiotics do not always distinguish between harmless and dangerous microbes. If a drug destroys too many harmless micro-organism, the pathogenic ones – the dangerous microbes – will have a greater chance to multiply. This situation often leads to development of a new infection called supra infection. Extensive use of some antibiotics may damage organs and tissues. For example streptomycin, which is used to treat tuberculosis, has caused kidney damage and deafness. Resistance to antibiotics may be acquired by pathogenic microbes. The resistant microbes transfer genetic material to non – resistant microbes and cause them to become resistant. During antibiotic treatment, non-resistant microbes are destroyed, but resistant types survive and multiply. To avoid the side effect of antibiotics, you’d better not urge your doctor to prescribe antibiotics. Keep in mind that antibiotics are only useful for bacterial infections and have no effect on viruses, so they cannot be used for chicken pox, measles, and other viral diseases.
43. Which diseases cannot be cured by antibiotics? A. Tonsillities. B. Meningitis. C. Chicken pox. D. Tuberculosis. E. Scarlet fever. 44. What are discussed in paragraph two and four? A. Both paragraphs describe how antibiotics work. B. Both paragraphs tell about the effects of misusing antibiotics. C. Both paragraphs explain how antibiotics damage organs and tissues. D. Paragraph two tells what causes the pathogenic microbes multiply and paragraph four tells how the un-resistant microbes become resistant. E. Paragraph two tells how antibiotics destroy harmless microbes and paragraph four describes how the pathogenic microbes transfer genetic material to non-resistant microbes. 12
45. Choose one from the following which is not the effect of using antibiotics improperly? A. Organs and tissues are damaged. B. The pathogenic microbes multiply. C. Harmless micro-organisms are destroyed. D. Pathogenic microbes become non-resistant. E. New infection which is called suprainfection develops. 46. “Antibiotics do not always distinguish between harmless and dangerous microbes.” (Paragraph 2) The underlined word means …. A. B. C. D. E.

This text is for questions 47 to 50. Should Performance enhancing drugs be accepted in sports? The issue of using drugs to enhance athlete’s performance is controversial. Those who agree to the use of drugs in enhancing performance say that most top players in all sports take drugs to train haarder and feel no pain during play. The trainers, sports doctors, nutritionists, physiotherapists and managers of the big names make sure banned substances are taken at the safest and most efficient levels. The main effect of banning such substances has returned performers and their coaches into liars and cheaters. On the other hand, some still believe that performance enhancing drugs in sport sould be beanned. Performance enhancing drugs are not only prohibited because they violate the spirit of sport but becausethey can damage the health of athletes. I think the idea of allowing them in sports could lead to a situation whereby spostsmen and women are used as hman guinea pigs for a constant flow of new, unregulated substances.
