PART B_2

The food crisis in the world
The food crisis is one of the many problems countries have been struggling with over the years. This is more common in African and Asian countries. Climate change has been one of the main causes of the threat to food security as it affects the natural production of food and the likes.
A food shortage is not just about not having enough food but it also creates other serious problems. People who already do not have easy access to food production are most likely to be affected by this. It also affects the livelihood of many people. As a result, they are forced to move into another place in hopes that it could give them more opportunities in life.
According to the World Health Organization, there are more than 820 million people who have been experiencing hunger for the past years. This has put the development of many countries on hold. Because of that, the government and some non-profit organizations have been working together to achieve the Zero Hunger by 2030. However, they know that this would be a tough journey as hunger is still on the rise in many African countries. It has also been slowly increasing in Latin America and the Caribbean. Meanwhile, it has been continuously rising in Western Asia which is now more than 12% of its population are undernourished. They aim to put an end to this crisis by promoting sustainable agriculture, supporting small-time farmers, and by providing equal access to lands.

PART B_2

Part-time job for students
Nowadays, many students depend on student loans to send themselves to school. These students usually do not get financial support from their families due to some reasons.
Although most students are being discouraged by their teachers to have a part-time job, some of them do not have a choice because their loans do not cover their apartment rents and other fees. So, they need to work to have a roof over their heads and food on their plates.
Because of that, Hannah Brown from Manchester University offers advice to students who want to have a part-time job. She said that it is important for students to be careful when they look for a part-time job as it might significantly affect their academic responsibilities. So, they advise their students not to commit to work that requires 20 hours of their time per week.
In addition to that, seeking out career-relevant work might also come in handy in the future. Students who have a part-time job that is relevant to their major could have a great chance to improve their employability after they graduate.
Above all else, health should be the students’ priority. It is important to keep their body healthy so they could have enough strength to study so they could reach their goals in life.

PART B_2

Literature is one of the subjects students study at school. However, not all students see the value of learning such a subject. On the other hand, there are a lot of things students might benefit from studying literature if they give it a chance.
In literature, students read various literary texts such as prose, poetry, and drama which varies from classic to modern texts. According to Judith Langer, a university professor, literature makes people better thinkers. It helps them see every side of situations to see things on their own visions and move them towards dreams they might not have ever imagined.
In addition to that, students gain the ability to understand and imagine what it is like to be in someone else’s shoes. They become more understanding of other cultures and the likes. Also, students develop a sense of individuality and creativity. Through studying literature, students learn how to give their opinion on certain topics. While others became inspired in making their own poetry or stories in the future with the influence of what they have read before.

The illustrated letters
One day, Charles Grimaldi found an old album with illustrated letters and cards signed by Kaka in the belongings of his late mother. So, he called his uncle Teddy who also has letters from Kaka to ask about it. He found out that Kaka was his great-grandfather. He collected all the letters and was able to gather around 850 letters.
Grimaldi published the letters and cards which they called “Pictures in the Post.” Some of the profits were given to an international charity named Save the Children.
Kaka was Henry Thornhill, an army officer of the British Colonial Service in India. Teddy was the first son of his daughter, Madge. When Teddy was still a baby, he tried to call him “grandpa” but he said Kaka instead. Kaka loved nature and had great knowledge about Indian birds and other animals. That is why he sent illustrated cards to Teddy that has pictures of animals.
The war separated Kaka from his family as he was sent to work for the Navy. Still, it did not stop him from sending letters to Teddy.

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

PART B_2

Curling is called “chess on ice” because of the strategies it requires to play the sport. There are two methods used in curling: the offensive and the defensive. It is important for teams to not only try to place the stones closest to the center of the house but also to prevent the other team from doing so.

If a team loses their last-stone advantage, also called a hammer, it would be easier for them to score points. The team with the hammer should position its stones around the center of the house so that they could place the last stone closer to the center of the house.
Players usually use various strategies that worked out beforehand. Also, they adapt to strategies used by the other team or depending on the actual situation of the game.
Before starting a game, water is sprinkled on the ice sheet to freeze it and make the surface rougher. That is why players do the sweeping to smoothen the ice. This is another important factor to help a team win. The goal of sweeping is to change the friction of the ice which will change the path of the stone.
Some people might think that curling is not as interesting or as challenging as any other sports. However, once they have tried it, they would see how much physical and mental strength players need to be able to play the sport.

PART B_2

Curling, also known as “chess on ice,” is a popular sport that came from Scotland. Then, it spread to other parts of Europe and North America in the 1800s. It became popular in many countries because of the strategy and skill it requires to play the sport. In 1998, it became an official sport in the Winter Olympics.
The sport requires that players must have both physical strength and mental skills to plan their moves. The game takes place on a sheet of ice that is about 45 meters in length and 5 meters in width. The stone and the broom are the main equipment for this sport.
There are two teams in every curling game which has four players each. The goal of each team is to score the most points for them to win the game. Each player on each team slides two stones each. The “skip” instructs one player to release stones. Meanwhile, the two other players sweep the ice in front of the stone. The team that has the most stones near the center of the house wins.

PART B_2

Building robots
Ishiguro Hiroshi believes that there are two steps in creating robots that look like real humans. The first step is by capturing the typical characteristics of humans such as their expressions and body movements. The second step is by having a remote-control machine that would transfer human speech and movements to the robot.
Ishiguro sometimes sends his Geminoid HI to conferences abroad alone. He usually stays in Japan and controls it by using his computer. When it speaks, listeners feel as if he is really there. He has been working hard to build android robots to discover what it means to be human. It has also taught him interesting things such as how human brains work. For instance, the operator feels whenever someone touches the android.
Meanwhile, there are many other teams that have been creating robots such as the team from Osaka University. They have created a robot that reacts to different kinds of touch. For example, it quickly moves out of the way the second it feels that someone is about to slap it. Another person who builds a robot is Takahashi Tomotaka. He built a robot named Kirobo that was sent into space as a conversation partner for an astronaut. The robot had the ability to listen and answer questions.
