Indonesian military equipment, adding that the commission was trying to identify the origins of the plane involved in
the crash.
Mahfud added that they are still trying to find out whether the plane was one given by another country or an

Many years ago the world had two parts. Animals lived in the lower part. This part was completely covered
in water and had no land or soil. In the other part, The Sky World, where humans lived, had lots of soil. It had
beautiful mountains and valleys. One day a girl from the Sky World went for a long walk and became very tired. She
needed a rest so she sat down under an apple tree and quickly fell asleep.
Suddenly, there was a rumbling sound like thunder. The ground began to crack. A big hole opened up next to
the apple tree. The girl was frightened and screamed for help. She tried to run but the earth split. She and the tree
slid through the hole and tumbled down into the watery world below.
"Help me! Help me!" screamed the girl. Luckily two swans which were swimming below saw the girl tumbling
down from the sky. "Come on! Let's catch her before she hits the water" said the one swan. "Okay!" yelled the other.
The swans spread their wings to catch the girl on their soft feather backs. "That was lucky" said the girl. Then she
thanked the swans. Then she realized that she was in another part of the world. "What do
I do now? I can't get back up to the Sky World and I can't stay on your backs forever." She said. "Don't worry.
We'll take you to Big Turtle. He knows everything." said the swans.
After hearing the girl explanation, Big Turtle called all the animals in the water world. He told them an old

Malignant tumor or malignantneoplasm, also known as cancer, is a disease caused by abnormal cell growth. The
cell has the potential to spread to other parts of the body. But not all tumors are cancerous, such as benign tumors.
They do not invade other parts of the body. Some people may have symptoms such as abnormal bleeding, a
prolonged cough, a new lump, unexplained weight loss, and a change in bowel movements, among others. But those
symptoms do not only indicate cancer. They can also occur because of other issues. Actually, there are over 100
different known cancers that affect humans.
Some 22% of cancer deaths are caused by tobacco use, while obesity, a poor diet, lack of physical activity, and
ethanol (alcohol) consumption cause 10% of deaths. Other factors include certain infections, exposure to ionizing
radiation, and environmental pollutants. 20% of cancers in developing countries are caused by infections such as
hepatitis B, hepatitis C, and human papillomavirus. These infections may change the genes of a cell. Before cancer
develops, many such genetic changes are required. Cancer can also be caused by genetic factors. There are 5-10%
people with cancer inherited from their parents. We can detect cancer by screening tests or by detecting certain
symptoms. Then it should be investigated further by medical imaging and confirmed biopsy.

Life expectancy among the world's wealthiest populations has been rising dramatically during the twentieth
century, from around 50 to over 75 years. Improvements in public health, nutrition and medicine are the factors of
life expectancy. Deaths in childhood have been greatly reduced by the use of vaccinations and antibiotics, health and
safety for workers in a workplace have been improved and people smoke less. Therefore, coupled with a decline in
the fertility rate (the average number of children that women have in their lifetime), many major industrial countries
are facing an ageing population.
It is predicted that developed countries' life expectancy will slowly increase and then reach a peak in the range of
the mid-80s. UN statistics show that for the 20052010, Japan is the highest for life expectancy (82.6 years) followed
by Hong Kong (82.2 years). The world average is 67.2 years and the UK average is 79.4 years
As you get older, your life expectancy changes. When a child reaches its first year, its chances of living longer -also
increase. When you are in late adulthood, you have quite a good chance to survive to a very old age. For example,
although the life expectancy from birth for all people in the United States is 77.7 years, those who live to age 65 will
have an average of almost 18 additional years left to live, making their life expectancy almost 83 years.
17. According to the data for the period 2005-2010,
what country has the highest life expectancy?
A. UK D. Iceland
B. Japan E. Hongkong
18. What is the main idea of the last paragraph?
A. People need great effort to survive.
B. The life expectancy of American is high.
C. When people get older, life expectancy changes.
D. The changes of climate influence life expectancy.
E. Life expectancy depends on what people consume.
19. "It is predicted that developed countries' life expectancy will slowly increase and then reach a peak in the range
of the mid-80s." (Paragraph 2)

The Maid, a film directed by Sebastian Silva in 2009 presents a story of a rich Brazilian family in Sao Paulo and
their house-keeper Val, played by Regina Case. She has been a nanny to the son of the house, as well as all her other
house duties. The money earned as a housekeeper is sent home to pay for the care of her own daughter Jessica,

Beavers are known as busy animals, and are talented in reengineering landscapes. Whenever there are sites
available, beavers will dig the soil in the banks of rivers and lakes. Furthermore, they're able to transform less
suitable habitats into dams. They block streams and turn fields and forests into large ponds by felling and gnawing
trees, using their strong teeth and powerful jaws to create massive log, branch, and mud structures.
Beavers have homes shaped like domes, called lodges, which are also constructed of mud and branches. Their
home are located in strategic ways so it in the center of lakes and can only be accessed through underwater

Systems of mobility have been around ever since the Roman Empire! conquered the world. Later, their

made it possible for the army to easily marchfrom one place to another. T e Romans tended to build straight roads
with the intention of facilitating the army to take the shortest route.
How the roads were built is interesting. Amazingly some of them are till in use. First, the Roman builders would
clean rocky and wooded ground. Next, in the place where the roads were to go, they dug a trench and filled it with bi
stones. Then, they packed the big stones with pebble , cement, and sand as a firm base. After that, another layer,
containing cement and broken tiles, was added to the base. To make the surface flat, they also added stones that
had been paved on top of the construction. These stones were cut, so that they fitted together tightly. As a final
step, kerb stones were placed on each side of the road in order to retain the paving stones and also to allow the
water to run away.

Jurassic World, a top fiction classic movie about dinosaurs, is now back, with spectacular effects. The movie
seems fresh. It comes with lots of action and great graphics to make your jaws drop in this terrifying story. Yet, the
plot is just average at best.
Apart from its fresh plot, the trailers prevent the movie being considered great because the trailers spoil almost
everything. The trailers show the Indominus Rex close up, tame raptors, the gyro-spheres, the mosasaurus (the giant
alligator dinosaur), the pteranodon attacking from the sky, and the creators show whether the tyrannosaurus rex is
in the film or not. So we can say that the movie offers only a little surprise to make it something special. Moreover,
the overall story is easily predictable, from the crownfall of the Indominus Rex, to Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas
Howard's characters' relationship with one another. Jurassic World is about as straightforward as you could expect.
Though Jurassic World isn't the best action movie of the year, it's still quite amusing and breathtaking, with its
great visual effects. It's a fun movie to watch with the whole family.

A. The plot of the film
