(Please send the mispronounced words and expressions to your student.)

PART B_2

Generally, the reason why products and services become popular is that they are better than others. However, there are cases where the quality of the products or services does not depend on its popularity rather, it depends more on the number of its consumers. An increase in the number of consumers who use a product means more benefits for the consumers. This effect is known in economic terms as the network effect. One of the best examples is the telephone. Owning a telephone would be useless if no other people use it, but the more consumers the network has, the more valuable it becomes because there are more people to talk to on the phone. As it gains more and more subscribers, its value continues to increase which reaches to the point where not subscribing on the telephone becomes inconvenient for people. Various services such as discounted price plans are being offered as a telephone network’s number of consumers increases which indirectly makes the network’s value increase even more.

The network effect has two major types. One of them is the number of consumers of a service or product which affects its value directly. It applies to communication services such as telephones, fax machines, the Internet, and e-mail. For instance, e-mail service will be worthless if there are no other e-mail users with whom the user can communicate with. However, under the network effect, the value of the product or service is not necessarily its quality’s reflection.

Fair trade is a partnership between farmers and businesses that aims to provide better and equal opportunities to them. It is designed to help small-time producers most especially in developing countries.
There are about 1.7 million farmers worldwide who participate in fair trade activities. Fair trade provides several benefits not only to big businesses but also to small-time producers. One of the benefits it provides is stable prices for most products. They usually set a minimum price that seeks to provide farmers with a safety net to allow them to have long-term planning. Another thing is that fair trade focuses on providing the needs of the producers. Moreover, it helps farmers extend their market opportunities by letting businesses and consumers know the environment-friendly products they offer.
All in all, fair trade finds ways to change people’s lives by giving them a chance to have a decent income and work that they deserve.

PART B_2

Monosodium glutamate
Monosodium glutamate or MSG is believed to make people suffer from headaches, nausea, and strange numbness in the body. People who love to eat Chinese food often experience these symptoms after enjoying their meal. They called this the “Chinese Restaurant Syndrome.” It is believed that most Chinese restaurants use MSG as their common seasoning.
In 1968, MSG became popular in a bad way because of a letter written by Dr. Ho Man Kwok that explained the possible causes of the “Chinese Restaurant Syndrome.” At first, he thought it was the soy sauce but soon realized that he was using the same ingredient at home and did not experience the syndrome after. This is made him consider that it could be the MSG. This went viral and caused many scientific studies to expose ‘the truth’ behind MSG. In fact, there was a study that tested 130 people who said that their bodies react to MSG. They were given a dose of MSG and those who scored above a certain level were tested again with the same dose to see if their reaction is consistent.
According to Kikunae Ikeda, a chemistry professor from the University of Tokyo, MSG is the salt formed from glutamic acid which is considered to be the most stable one. Also, it is the best way to bring out the savory taste of food. Moreover, glutamate is known to be the magic ingredient in MSG which naturally occurs in some foods such as tomatoes, Parmesan cheese, dried mushrooms, and soy sauce.
Meanwhile, the Food and Drug Administration claims that the use of MSG for cooking is now GRAS or “Generally Recognized as Safe.”

There are more than 50,000 convenience stores in Japan or also known as Konbini. These stores have been the one-stop-shop for many people because of the services they offer. On top of that, they operate 24 hours a day so people could buy the items they need any time of the day.
Convenience stores sell a wide selection of food such as meals, snacks, instant ramen, and the likes. People could also request their food to be reheated in the stores. Also, customers can find the items they need for personal use. Basically, people can find anything in most convenience stores even ATMs.
Meanwhile, most workers from convenience stores usually cannot keep up from the demands of the work most especially the night shift. Many of them have been collapsing due to lack of sleep and too much exhaustion. Because of that, some stores are having a hard time to look for employers who are willing to work on a night shift. As a result, some companies are considering to end their 24-hour operations in selected stores.

Sigmund Freud
Sigmund Freud was an Austrian neurologist who was born into a Jewish family. His family was originally from Leipzig and then moved to Vienna where he got his education.
Freud started studying medicine in 1873 at the University of Vienna. He worked at the Vienna General Hospital after he graduated. He treated people with hysteria with Josef Breuer. Freud went to Paris in 1885 to study neurology. He returned to Vienna a year after and opened up a private clinic that specialized in nervous and brain disorders.
Freud developed a theory wherein it shows that humans have an unconscious part in their minds in which aggressive behaviors are in conflict with reality. In 1990, he published “The Interpretation of Dreams” wherein it tackles his analysis of dreams in terms of unconscious desires and experiences.
From 1902 to 1938, he held the position as the Professor of Neuropathology at the University of Vienna. However, the medical institution did not agree with most of his theories. Still, he was able to gain followers through a group of students.
After World War One, he decided to concentrate on the application of his theory to art, literature, and anthropology as he spent less time in clinical observations.

PART B_2

Inherited diseases
A genetic disorder is a disease that is often caused by an abnormality in the genes of an individual. It is typically inherited from parents, while some people acquired them from the changes in genes that have already been existing. Some of the most common genetic diseases are heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, and cancer.
Inherited diseases could be passed down in two different manners; the dominant or recessive way. Every individual has two copies of each gene on 22 numbered chromosomes. Females have two copies of all the genes on the X chromosomes. Meanwhile, males only have one copy of both X and Y chromosomes.
A dominant disease usually occurs when there are DNA mistakes in only one of the two gene copies. This means that a change in the DNA of a parent would most likely cause the disease to be passed on the child by a 50-50 chance. On the other hand, a recessive disease means that there are mistakes in both copies of the gene. This means that both parents carry at least one copy of the changes in the specific gene which usually affects their child.
There is a 25 percent chance that a child may inherit both parents’ changed genes copies if both parents have one changed copy each. This often causes a child to have a disorder. Moreover, if only one of the parents has a changed gene copy, it does not often show any signs of disorder on their children. On top of that, some genetic disorders have inconsistencies in whether a person would develop symptoms and their severity.

The world-famous cartoon
Over 60 years ago, a cartoonist named Charles M. Schulz created the first Peanuts cartoon. Even after his death in 2000, the Peanuts continue to be published and discovered by new readers. The Peanuts cartoon characters have millions of fans around the world since the first time they appeared in several publications. A lot of people find the main characters of the cartoon very interesting. Charlie Brown, who is known as the little “loser,” is the boy who always believes that he can win. Another character named Lucy is the girl who always gives advice to people. The character who always brings his security blanket with him is a little boy named Linus. But the most famous of them all is Snoopy, a beagle who thinks he is a great writer or a fighter pilot. They have captured the hearts of many readers for almost half a century now.
One of the stories in the Peanuts cartoons is about Father’s Day which makes readers realize that a father’s love can be shown in many simple ways. Many episodes of the Peanuts cartoon focus on family life. The cartoonist got the inspiration to create stories from the people and incidents during his childhood. That may be the reason for the cartoons’ popularity among readers around the world.

High-income economy
Singapore is an island city-state located in southern Malaysia which is ranked as one of the world’s most competitive economies. However, 50 years ago, the country was a low-income economy that faced severe unemployment, poor buildings, and a housing shortage. Still, it was able to rapidly develop into a high-income economy after independence. The country has a gross national income of $52,530 per capita as of the year 2017, one of the highest in the world.
The main reason for their economic growth was the manufacturing industry. Singapore reached full employment and was ranked the same as Hong Kong, South Korea, and Taiwan in the early days of the 1970s. The manufacturing and services industry has remained to be the main factor of the country’s high value-added economy.
In 2018, the overall growth of the county’s economy was 3.2%. The electronics and precision engineering sectors are still the main keys to economic growth. Meanwhile, the services sector also grew 6% each year, particularly the information and communication sector. In addition to that, the finance and insurance industries also grew by 5.9% year-on-year.
The World Bank Human Capital Index ranks Singapore as the best country in the world in human capital development. This means that children born today and over the next few years in Singapore would be 88% productive when they grow up provided that they will be given the right to proper education and health benefits.

I will give a presentation about environmental problems in the Philippines.
(Please read aloud the passage below.)

PART B_2

In the Philippines, people are experiencing various environmental problems which are usually caused by human activities. The most common environmental problems are air and water pollution. However, the worst environmental problem in the Philippines these days is water pollution.
Water pollution is a serious environmental problem in the Philippines because it causes people and animals to get diseases from the water they drink or use. Also, in most parts of the Philippines, there is not enough clean water for everyone to use. Most rivers, lakes, and springs in the Philippines that used to have clean and safe water to drink, are already polluted because of the activities of people who live near them. These people usually throw their trash in these bodies of water without even thinking of what could happen in the future. One of the main reasons for this activity is the poor management of trash in some parts of the Philippines.
Nowadays, the government has been organizing programs to help solve the water pollution problem in the Philippines. Many pro-environment organizations are doing clean-up programs to encourage people to clean the polluted bodies of water. Most people in the Philippines are already managing their trash and they avoid just throwing them anywhere. Many people in the Philippines hope that water pollution will be solved so that it will not be experienced by future generations.
