Kingfisher-inspired Bullet Trains
Japanese bullet trains used to have noise problems. The speed of these trains caused loud booming sounds when exiting tunnels that wake up people who lived nearby and disturb wildlife. Because of that, the engineers had to quiet down the noise level of the train. After finding out that the cause of the loud noise is the shape of the face of the train, they decided to study the nature of a kingfisher. A kingfisher is a bird known as an effective hunter. It dives into the water to catch food and creates almost no splash even at high speed. This is because of the aerodynamic build of its bill and head. They applied this idea and modeled the face of the train like the kingfisher’s head. After trying the new model, it moved through without creating a booming sound. It also saved them 10-15% more energy because it was more aerodynamic.

Answer:

Expert Conversation: Celebrations and Holidays

WARM UP

Let’s read the dialogue. I will be Alice and you will be Ron. After reading it once, we’ll switch roles.

READ

Christmas is just a week from now. I’m so excited. Do you have any plans for the holidays?
We’re planning to stay in my grandparents’ place until the first week of New Year. It’s a great opportunity for a family get-together.

I agree. That’s why I’m over the clouds these days. I can’t wait to spend a long holiday with my family. Have I told you that my cousin is due to give birth on Christmas Day?
That would be cool. Remember our friend, Sandra? Her birthday is also on Christmas Day. She always receives twice as many gifts but she can never have a birthday party.

Too bad for her. Most of her friends won’t be able to attend since we all spend our holidays with our families.
Speaking of our friend, Sandra, I think I should buy her a present and give it to her before we leave next week. you next year!
