So, what is the secret of success? How can you make your dreams come true, and become a movie star, or start a successful business? Our article looks at two people who have found the answer. At fourteen, Michelle Williams was just (l teenager Uying with her family in a smal.l town in Montm)i'l., USA, whose ambition was to become an ach"css. Against her p<lrents' wishes, who wanted her to continue her father's profession and become ,1 stock broker, Michelle left high school when she IQ was fifteen to pursue an acting career. But finding good acting jobs was not easy. She once told a reporter how, during a difficult period, she tried to make a living by ice cream - but did not do very well: 'I tlte more than T sold,' she admitted. BUI she never gave up her dream. 15 First, she played small parts in television shows for a few years, but her talent w'as eventually discovered when she was 18. The makers of a new teenage soap opera, D(lwson~~ Creek gave her one of the main roles on the show. After that, it was only a question of time before she fOlUld fame in the movies. 2<J Today, Michelle, who wanted to be an actress since she was a child, has succeeded in becoming a respected Hollywood actress - and some critics are already saying that she will be a great star of the future. In 2005, she won Cl Golden Globe award, and was e\'en nominated for iln Oscar for her ;c; outstanding performance in Brol,t?back Mountain - the film which introduced her to her husband, fellow actor Heath Ledger.

'J~eading for' pleasure . . .


by Christine Undop At· the age of twenty-six, life was neatly at an end for Jacques Coustea'u, who 100(ed flying planes. After a very bad car cr.3sh, which nearly killed him, doctors 5 said he had to stop flying. After the crash his arms were not strong, so the same doctors told him to do lots of swimming. Cousteau began swimming underwaterand his. life changed. IQ When he was young Cousteau liked taking photographs and inventing things. Now he was interested in the w1derwater world, but he wanted to stay under the water for longer. With the help 15 of Cl fdend called Emile Gagman, he made the Aqualtmg, which gave (lir to a diver underwater. With the Aqualung, COllsteall eould stay underwater fur several hot1l's, ilnd he said that the could 10 become a 'manfish'. h1 1950, a very rich man gave CClusteau some money to buy a boat called the Calypso, and he made the boat



his home for travelling on the sea and filming underwater. To pay for his journeys with the Calypso, Cousteau made more than a hundred films, aJ,d wrote more than a hundred books. Two of his films} TIle Si/eIlt World (1956) and World Without Sun (1966) won Oscars. Perhaps his most important work was

The Undersea World of Jacque~~ Cotlstea.u, 35



which began on TV in 1968. It gave minions of people aU over the \-"orld their first chance to see the strange and wonderful world below the sea. It also began to teach people about the need to protect the sea and its crea.tures from people and the things they do. COllsteau continued to invent and test new things. He invented a machine that could carry a man under the water, and he did some tests in which six men spent th.ree weeks living and working 100 metros und.erwater.



Cousteau died in 1997, at the age of eighty-seven. A short time before he died, he said that the most inlportanl work in his life was trying to Save Alaska, Antarctica, and the Amazon. The Cousteau Society, which began in 1973, is still at work today, making fiilns and working to protect the ocellns. More than 300,000 people belong to it in cmmtries all over the world.

My favourite celebration in Japan is Hanami. It usually takes place al the end of March or the beginning of April. when the cherry blossom comes out. It is a very popular event and almost everybody in Japan takes part. Ollice workers visit the parks with friends and colleagues, and children go with their parents, grandparents and friends. I live in Kyoto, and at cherry blossom time, we always visit the cherry trees along Biwako Canal and then we have a party in the park. We all have a picnic. sing songs and tell stories. At the picnic we eat traditional Japanese food, and some people like to drink sake, a kind of wine made from rice. I really like hanami because it's a great way to start the year. When it's over, you have the summer to look forward to. ~.«

VOLUNTEERS WANTED! ou've been studying hard for your final exams all year and finally they're over. Ifs time to start applying for your first job and earning money, or applying to go to university, or is it? Some people decide to do something quite different before they settle down to a full-time job or education. Every year, thousands of young adults from all over the world take part in a once-in-a·lifetime adventure. Voluntary organisations such as the 'International Voluntary Service' and 'Operation Raleigh' offer young adults the chance to live abroad, and work on projects which help the community or the environment. Volunteers can be found in Greece helping to protect the falling numbers of black bears, working in residential homes in Portugal or even helping gorillas in Rwanda. There are 110 pre-conditions in terms of nationality, ability, qualifications or social background. Volunteers need only a passport, a reference, and enthusiasm. According to T1m Grieve. who works with young adults on these projects, 'This is a unique learning experience for anyone


who takes part - and an opportunity to build up friendships all over the world. Each volunteer is looked after by someone from the host project, and every participating country provides support: Kate, a volunteer who worked in a children's home in India, told us why she decided to volunteer, 'I wanted to feel that I was going to do something really useful. I had an idea that I could make a difference.' Most volunteers are not paid wages or a salary, but are given accommodation and food, and sometimes receive an allowance. Training is usually offered to volunteers both before and during their time away - and they can get advice on finding other employment after their return to their own country. So what do people get out of volunteering? Nick, who worked with elephants in Malawi last year, says. 'One day I was sitting in my bedroom in London looking at elephants on the TV, the next day I was staring into the eyes of an elephant and helping to scrub his back. I made loads of friends that I wouldn't have made in London, and had some incredible experiences. It changed my outlook on life: Volunteering can help you develop skills which are attractive to employers and universities, such as independence. initiative and social skills. So what are you waiting for? Anyone who is interested in volunteering, or wants further information, can contact their nearest volunteer agency, or look for opportunities on the many volunteer websites on the Internet.

_ _.-3 ,. --













In 1987, George Fitch and William Maloney, two businessmen from Jamaica, had a rather surprising idea.. They h,ld seen a local 'pushcart' race in Kingston, and they noticed that it looked Cl bit like a bobsleigh. So why not have an Olympic bobsleigh te(lm? There were some obvious problems. There was no ice, J<lmaica was thousands of miles from the nearest snow, and there was very litHe money and nowhere to blly equipment. Lastly, although Ihe (QUotT)' had plenty of cricket players, rllnners Clod other athletes, there were no bobsleighers. These difficulties did not put Fitch and Maloney off, and I'hey started to try and create a team. They found three Olen from th~ Jamaican Army and late-r got three others 10 join. The team moved to Austria to learn how to bobsleigh. At first they found practising cold, difficult and very p<Jinful. They crashed again and again, <lod the equipment kept breaking down. But things started to get better, ClOd they hired an Austrian coach to train them. He chose Dudley Stokes as tJle driver, because he had experience as an army helicopter pilot! Dudley's experience of helicopters \'"a5 useful because you need skill and concentration to drive a bobsleigh. In the four-man event, the rUIUlers push the sled at the start of the mile-long rWl and jump on board. The sled flies do\'vn the icy track at 90 miles an hoUT, and the smaUest mistake can be very dangerous. At first, there were some people who didn't want the Jamaicans to take part in the 1988 Calgary Olympics. They felt that the 'beginners' were making fun of a serious and dangerous sport. But in the end, the Olympic Committee allowed them to enter. By the time the games started, the team were already famolls. They had thousands of fans, and in the Olympic Village, skiers and bobsleighers from all




over the world danced to their song, 'J-lobbin 8Hd Cl Bobbin', sling by team member and Reggae singer Freddie Powel!. The team did quite weU at the games. On the last day, they managed to achieve the seventh fastest starting time of the competition! However, their race ended spectacularly in an 8~ mile-an-holU crash that was seen by thOUSands of spectators in the stadium and millions of TV viewers all around the world.

This wasn't the end of Jamaican bobsleighing. Lots more people took up the sport in Jamaica, and set up teams, including a women's team. In 2000, the Jamaican team won a gold medal at the World Push Championships in Monte Carlo, beating other teams from snowy countries ail over th world! Hopes are high that they will one day bring an Olympic medal back to Jamaica.

I got up and went to the window, and saw a young man and woman walking towards the beach. 1 felt that somethi ng was wrong, so 1 got dressed and ran outside. I called to them. but they had disappeared into the darkness. A few days later at the lo(al market. I met the farmer who owned the cottage and told him about the two people. He looked at me seriously and said: 'Those two are not ordinary visitors. A long time ago, those two were in love. But their families were enemies, so they decided 10 ru n away together. On the fi rst night in December they met al the cottage and tried to cross the sea. But there was a terrible storm, and they drowned in the icy black waters.,,' I smiled pol itely, because I do not believe in gho'>l:s. But as 1 was wal king home, I suddenly felt cold as 1 realised the night I had seen them had been the first of December.

The Hound of the Baskervilles ~.


BY ARTHUR CONAl'\] DOYLE (RETOLD BY PATRICK The moon was shining on the Great Grinlpen;~~i~\1 and a fog was rising from it. Holmes watched the fog and began to look worried. The ~~~ was~:', ~7' ,i.qg lip from the marsh towards the hOllse. We were hidden near the path, which :; was on ilie far side of the house from the m.arsh. 'The fog is moving towards us, Watson, and that is very serious,' said Holmes. 'It is the one thing that could make my plans go wrong.' As we watched, the fog, which had crept as far as the IU house, began to flow round it. Angrily Holmes hit the rock in front of us with his open hand. 'If Sir Henry doesn't come out in the next quarter of an hour, the path will be covered by the fog. Tn half an hour we shall not be able to see our hands in front of our faces. We 15 ~ust move back to higher ground ahove the fog: We moved away from the house and out of the fog, which was creeping slowly along the ground and hiding the path hom our view. "We must not go too far,' said Holmes. 'If we do, Sir Henry 20 may be caught before he reaches us.' Holmes went down on one knee, and put his ear to the ground. 'Thank heaven, I think J hear him coming.' Then we heard quick footsteps 011 the path. After a few moments, Sir Henry appeared out of the fog and walked on 2:; in the dear moonlight. He came quickly aJong the path, passed close to where we were hidden, and begnn to walk up the hill behind us. A he walked, he looked over his houlder again and again, like a man who is worried that something is following him. 30 'Listen!' said H.ohne~ 'Look out! It's coming!' I heard him make\,,::.:~~~~~readyto fire, and I did the same. There was Cl sound of quick, light footsteps from inside the curtain of fog. The cloud had crept to within fifty metres of J5 where we were hidden. We tried to see into it, and wondered what horrible thing would appear. [ looked at Holmcs, Hi' eyes were fixed on the place where the path disappeared into the fog. He was &R1t ~~ but his eyes were bright. He looked like a man who was going to win the mo t important ~ game of his life. Then suddenly hi eye nearly jumped out of his head, and his mouth pened in frightened surprise. I looked away from him to see what his eyes were fixed on. When 1 saw the awful hape that was to,vards us out of the fog, my blood turned cold. The revolver nearly feU 45 from my hand~, and my whole body froze with fear. 1 saw Cl ~ljY : \~. an enormous black hound. It was bigger thill1 any dog Thad ever seen. But it was something else that filled us with terror. No hwnan eye had ever seen a hound like this one. Fire came from its open mouth. Its eye were 511 burning. Flames covered its head and body. It was a more horrible si~,~~. than anvone could imagine - a h~iU-hound sent by the~\1i$ It was not a creature of the natural v,路orId. The huge, black, burning hound ran quickly and silently after Sir Henry. FiU away along the path we sav,' him turn 55 and look back at the hound. His face was white in the moonlight and h.i~ hands were lifted in horror. He watdled helpl ssly as fhe terrible creatme got closer to him. We were so frozen by thel~t~' and unnatural sight that we let the hound go past us, and we could not move. Our friend was 60 near to death, and we were helpless with fear.

It relllly annoys me that you have to be 17 to drive a car but only 1&to ri de a mope d.
