Bear are mammals of the family Rushdie. Bears are classified as conforms, or dog like carnivores, with the panpipes being their closest living relatives. Although there are only eight living species of bear, they are widespread, appearing in a wide variety of habitats throughout the Northern hemisphere and partially in the Southern Hemisphere. That which pertains to bears is called ursine. Bears are found in the continents of North America, South America, Europe, and Asia.
Common characteristics of modern bears include a large body with stocky legs, a snout, shaggy hair, plant grade paws with five nonrestrictive claws, and a short tail. While the polar bear is mostly carnivorous and the giant panda feeds almost entirely on bamboo, the remaining six species are omnivorous, with largely varied diets including both plants and animals.
With the exceptions of courting individuals and mothers with their young, bears are typically solitary animals. They are sometimes diurnal, but are usually active during the night (nocturnal) or twilight (crepuscular). Bears are aided by an excellent sense of smell, and despite their heavy build and awkward gait, they can run quickly and are adept climbers and swimmers. In autumn, some bear species forage large amounts of fermented fruits, which affects their behavior. Bears use shelters such as caves and burrows as their dens, which are occupied by most species during the winter for a long period of sleep similar to hibernations.

Prambanan is the largest Hindu temple compound in Central Java in Indonesia, located approximately 18 km east of Yogyakarta.
The temple is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is one of the largest Hindu temples in south-east Asia. It is characterised by its tall and pointed architecture, typical of Hindu temple architecture, and by the 47m high central building inside a large complex of individual temples.
It was built around 850 CE by either Rakai Pikatan, king of the second Mataram dynasty, or Balitung Maha Sambu, during the Sanjaya Dynasty. Not long after its construction, the temple was abandoned and began to deteriorate. Reconstruction of the compound began in 1918. The main building was completed in around 1953. Much of the original stonework has been stolen and reused at remote construction sites. A temple will only be rebuilt if at least 75% of the original stones are available, and therefore only the foundation walls of most of the smaller shrines are now visible and with no plans for their reconstruction.
The temple was damaged during the earthquake in Java in 2006. Early photos suggest that although the complex appears to be structurally intact, damage is significant. Large pieces of debris, including carvings, were scattered over the ground. The temple has been closed to the public until damage can be fully assessed. The head of Yogyakarta Archaeological Conservation Agency stated that: “it will take months to identify the precise damage”. However, some weeks later in 2006 the site re-opened for visitors. The immediate surroundings of the Hindu temples remain off-limits for safety reasons.

ANDY ON GUARD
Andy had just decided to go back into the pantry, when a whisper of cold air brushed his face and the scent of – of the sea? – seemed to waft into the room. Was there an outside door open? Would grandpa be right outside watching? He was pretty brave.
He crawled cautiously from the kitchen and peered round the end of the hall.
Lights! Through the open doorway at the end of the side hallway, he could see the long reaching beams of the searchlights, with the roundish figure of his grandfather silhouetted against them.
He glanced behind. His mother would be terribly angry if she found out. But what if this was the only good air-raid of the whole war and he missed it?
He licked his lips. It probably would not be too dangerous now. The bomber had gone past and was still moving away ; and he could not hear any more coming, even though the siren was still sounding.
He looked back towards the pantry once more, then crawled quickly down the short hallway and squatted just behind his grandfather’s legs. Leaning to the side, he could see the great beams from the searchlights probing the dark night sky, beams even stronger than those from a lighthouse. They swept back and forth like swords of light; swords slashing the night in search of enemy aircraft for the gunners on the ground.
I hope they find one, thought Andy. He had seen the small round puffs of shell-bursts from the guns during the day. They popped from the sky around Port Phillip Bay when the gunners at Albert Park and Williamstown practiced firing.
Now he wanted to see one burst in the night sky, or even better, see it burst and explode an aircraft ; but there were no new sounds of engines, and the one that had gone over the house sounded too far away now.
“Do you reckon they’ll get one, Grandpa?” he asked, forgetting he was not supposed to be there.
“What th’ devil-“ Grandpa began angrily, then chuckled and felt with a hand till it rested on Andy’s head. “A man can’t hide himself away when there’s some action, can he?”
“I thought I should come and see if you needed any help,” Andy said.

Teachers of English generally make three basic level distinction : beginners, intermediate and advanced (though exactly what these terms mean often depends where you work and what the textbook (if any) you are using). Broadly, however, beginners are those who don’t know any English and advanced students are those whose level of English is competent, allowing them to read unsimplified fact and fiction and communicate fluently with native speakers. Between these two extremes, intermediate suggests a basic competence in speaking and writing and an ability to comprehend fairly straightforward listening and reading.
Between these levels, other descriptive terms are used too. A distinction is made between beginners and false beginners to reflect the fact that some adults start a beginners’ course having heard virtually no English, whereas many others can’t really use any English but actually know quite a lot which can be quickly activated; they’re not real beginners. Elementary students are no longer beginners and are able to communicate in a basic way. They can string some sentences together, construct a simple story or take part in predictable spoken interactions. However, they have not yet achieved intermediate competence which involves greater fluency and general comprehension of some general authentic : there are still areas of knowledge –tense structure, noun phrase construction, vocabulary use etc. –which elementary students have not come across. Upper intermediate students, on the other hand, have the competence of intermediate students, on the other hand, have the competence of intermediate students plus an extended knowledge of grammatical construction and skill use. However, they may not have achieved the accuracy or depth of knowledge which their advanced colleagues have acquired.

Universally acclaimed as America’s greatest playwright, Eugene O’Neill was born in 1888 in the heart of the theater district in New York City. As the son of an actor he had early exposure to the world of the theater. He attended Princeton University briefly in 1906, but returned to New York to work in a variety of jobs before joining the crew of a freighter as a seaman. Upon returning from voyages to South Africa and South America, he was hospitalized for six months to recuperate from tuberculosis. While he was recovering, he determined to write a play about his adventures on the sea.
He went to Harvard, where he wrote the one-act Bound east for Cardiff. It was produced in 1916 on Cape Cod by the Provincetown Players, an experimental theater group that was later to settle in the famous Greenwich Village theater district in New York City. The Players produced several more of his one-acts in the years between 1916-1920. With the full-length play Beyond the Horizon, produced on Broadway in 1920, O’Neill success was assured. The play won the Pulitzer Prize for the best play for the year. O’Neill was to be awarded the prize again in 1922,1928,and 1957 for Anna Christie, Strange Interlude, and Long Day’s Journey into Night. Although he did not receive the Pulitzer Prize for it, Mourning Becomes Electra, produced in 1931, is arguably his most lasting contribution to the American theater. In 1936, he was awarded the Nobel Prize for literature.
O’Neill plays, forty-five in all, cover a wide range of dramatic subjects, but several themes emerge, including the ambivalence of family relationship, the struggle between the sexes, the conflict between spiritual and material desires , and the vision of modern man as a victim of uncontrollable circumstances. Most of O’Neill ‘s character are seeking meaning in their lives. According to his biographers , most of the characters were portraits of himself and his family. In a sense, his work chronicled his life.
28. Write the word to replace these words :
a. Greatest c. Play
b. Exposure d. Struggle
29. Explain in your words :
a. Voyage c. Experimental
b. Hospitalized d. Ambivalence
30. Answer these questions briefly :

b. How many award did O’Neill get ?
c. Mention O’Neill’s dramatic plays !
