1. Fill in the blank above.

2. Todd: So, Eoin, when you finish playing your gigs, when your band is finished, so then is it you just sit back and have drinks with the people and you know hit it up. Eoin: Yeah, in an ideal world. I mean we certainly have drinks, but there are a few other things that we normally have to do, especially if we%27re playing away from home at a live house not close to where we are, where we%27ve been invited as a guest band. We normally give out questionnaires to the people who%27ve been watching. Todd: Wait a minute. You give questionnaires? Eoin: That%27s right. Todd: Like forms? Eoin: That%27s right. Todd: You ask people to _______________ you? Eoin: Yes and no. In fact the questionnaires that we give out, most of the questions are completely meaningless, like just sort of jokey questions about whether you like ramen, which is a kind of Chinese noodle soup or some other things like that, but basically the reason we give it out is the question at the bottom which says if you are... if you enjoyed the performance and would be interested in seeing this band again, please write your e-mail address.

4. One person I really admire is Charles Darwin. If you don%27t know, he%27s a very, very famous scientist which lived in the 1800%27s. He was born in England but travelled the world and came up with probably the most influential _______________ of our time. He discovered the theory of evolution, and this theory has changed the way we think about life, and has changed the way I personally think about life and the world and how science works, so he%27s really amazing. He thought outside the box, and came up with something really original and really important and changed a lot people%27s perceptions. I also like Charles Darwin because he was very into nature and discovering how it worked and how different animals did the same things in different ways, and really brought zoology and wildlife into people%27s homes and into people%27s books, so he made a lot of big changes to the world. That%27s why I like Charles Darwin. (substitute, science, research, radical, pronounce, pronounce, overlook, knowledge, intellectual, evaluate, assigned)

5. Fill in the blank above.

6. Kara: And that%27s probably my biggest problem. I%27ve taken a lot of Spanish classes and I learned in class but I%27ve never liked to practice because I%27ve always wanted to speak my Spanish perfectly. I%27ve always wanted to be able to just start speaking and not have to worry about making a mistake. Lupe: Yeah, and you can%27t worry about things like that because you can%27t expect yourself, you know, to learn it quickly and learn it perfectly. Pronunciation is always hard but you have to understand that even when you don%27t _______________ everything perfectly, people are still gonna understand what you%27re trying to say, and the more you speak it, the better it%27s gonna get so you will perfect it with time so don%27t expect yourself to _______________ everything right the first time. That%27s really how you learn -- from your mistakes. (substitute, science, research, radical, pronounce, pronounce, overlook, knowledge, intellectual, evaluate, assigned)

9. Fill in the blank above.

10. Politics is not my forte. When you have a forte for something, that means you have special skill or talent or _______________ about it. When something is not your forte, that means you are not interested in it or are not good at it. Notice the following: 1. Art is not my forte, so I never go to museums. 2. Sports is not my forte, but I like going to big games. (substitute, science, research, radical, pronounce, pronounce, overlook, knowledge, intellectual, evaluate, assigned)

11. Fill in the blank above.

12. I disagree with Mr. Odede’s points about what he considers the exploitative nature of slum tourism. My junior year of college, I chose to study abroad in Ghana. When I first arrived, I suffered many of the same symptoms Mr. Odede suggests — gawking, picture taking and a sense of relief that I could go home after five months. But after living there, and taking time to really get to know the Ghanaian people, I grasped a reality that most Americans _______________. Did I come back wanting to change the world? Yes. Was that realistic? Probably not. But what my experience abroad did provide me with was the tools to challenge people on poverty issues, which Mr. Odede claims does not happen enough. I’m not arguing that poverty will disappear because of tourism. But if more people chose to travel outside of common and “safe” destinations, that’s when the conversation about poverty would really begin.

13. Fill in the blank above.

14. Scientists have talked about tinkering with the earth for decades, but they downplayed their ideas, fearing that quick fixes would discourage politicians and consumers from making harder changes needed to cut down on energy use. _______________ solutions, though, to global warming are now coming out in the open - like the manmade volcano that shoots gigatons - gigatons - of sulfates up into the air. That%27s a lot. Another idea is placing trillions of little reflectors between the sun and the earth to lower the planet%27s temperature. And then there is the forest of artificial trees that would suck carbon dioxide out of the air. It is unclear if any of these ideas will come to fruition, but one scientist says they should be researched, just as an insurance policy.
