READING ACTIVTTY
Skill: Reading Attack Skill III
   Scanning (3)
The purpose in scanning, as you know, is to search for specific information quickly. Thus, a high rate of speed is essential. Once you have located the appropriate part of the material, you should try to learn the information in the least amount of time. You are supposed not to be distracted by words or ideas unrelated to the purpose of scanning.
Meanwhile, accuracy is just as essential as speed in scanning. Since you are looking for specific information, it is important that it be accurate, 100 percent accuracy, along with the first-rate speed, should be your goal in scanning practice.

Materials for Scanning

Guided writing
1 Read the following passage and fill in the blanks with appropriate connective words from among the following:
although so however because for example
even if  first  second  lastly
  all these words have to be used at least once.
  The feeling of individual independence and self-sufficiency is so strong in the United States that often either parents or their grown children choose not to live together. Consider the cases of these two retired persons.
  Mr. Rolfe, age 67, is a widower whose wife passed away sox months ago. (__1__) his health is good, and he has many friends of his own age, he intends to live in his own house. His married daughter lives in another state: (__2__) misses her, he thinks he will be more comfortable in his own home.
  Mr. Taylor, age 72, has been a widow for seven years. After her husband's death she insisted on taking care of herself, (__3+__) she stayed in her second-floor apartment. Her married sons and daughters, who lived in the same community, pledged their financial support and promised to look in on her and make sure that she was all right. After she fell and broke her hip, (__4__), her doctors said that she would not be able to get around very well. Her children, after considerable discussion, persuaded her to live in a convalescent hospital rather than offering to have her stay with them on a rotating basis.
  The decisions made by these old people resulted from the following attitudes and feelings in the United States:
  (__5__), parents do not like to feel dependent on their children; they claim that they do not want to be a burden, (__6__) they would like very much to be with their children.
  (__7__), one generation often feels that its style of living is different from another generation's style. Both parent and child feel that the other's presence would upset and change the normal routine.
  (__8__), children often do not feel an equal share of responsibility toward their parents. (__(__), a brother sometimes feels that his sisters are responsible for physical care of their parents, (__10__) he does not want to burden his wife with the care of his parents.

2 The following is the result of a poll taken by Herald of the Town, a local newspaper of a medium-sized city:
  1. Do you think the city government can do more for the homeless people?
  Yes. (72 percent of the residents)
  2. Is the city paying enough attention th the needs of blacks and other minority(少数民族) groups?
  No. (5 percent)
  3. What do you think of the suggestion of building more soup kitchens and nursing homes for the homeless and the old people?
  A good idea. (77 percent)
  Very foolish. (14 percent)
  No comment. (9 percent)
  4. What is the worst problem facing the city?

SUPPLEMENTARY READING IN POPULAR SCIENCE
IS A cleaner Environment Too Costly?
Nobody likes to live in a polluted environment. Yet cleaning up our environment costs money as well as jobs. That sounds like common sense. Is that really the case?

The rich world's arguments about the environment follows a pattern. Environmentalists (环境保护主义者) say pollution is terrible and getting worse. Businessmen retort that a real clean-up would cost too much. The ordinary citizen believes both: the environment is indeed going down the drain, but so might his job if anyone tries to stop that. All of them, it turns out, are wrong.
Recent statistics show that, in rich countries at least, many of the worst pollution problems are far smaller than they used to be - and that the costs of this success have so far been small.
Start with air pollution. The dreaded greenhouse gases are still flowing into the atmosphere. But output of gases that attack the ozone layer is well under control. Production of CFCs(含氯氟烃) used in refrigerators-has fallen by two-thirds since the mid-1980s. Many pollutants have been beaten back. The flow of oxides(氧化物) of sulfur, which contribute to evils such as acid rain and smog, has fallen by around a third in rich countries since 1980. emissions lead, soot (煤烟) and carbon monoxide - each hazardous (有害的) to human health - have also fallen sharply.
Water quality has improved in many ways. There is still worry about chemicals, such as fertilizers and heavy metals, draining off the land. But many of the organisms that once infested(寄生于) rich- world waterways - and which still kill millions in poor countries - are retreating steadily. Progress is largely due to the spread of waste-water treatment.
Has this cost jobs? There is no evidence for that. Spending on pollution control amounts to 1%-- 2% of GDP(国内生产总值) in most rich countries, but that has not cut jobs overall. True, certain industries such as mining have lost jobs, and some companies have moved to less strict third- world countries. But greenery, like any new market, has also created jobs: the market world-wide was worth some $200 billion in 1990.
Much of this progress was due to market forces, not regulation. It took rules to keep lead out of petrol and smog away from London. But much of the fall in oxides of sulfur, for example, springs from the decline of coal-burning industries. Except for waste- water treatment, most improvements have come fairly cheap. Either inexpensive alternatives already existed or cheap gadgets (机械装置) could be added to existing machinery.
Some regulation has gained support because it protects vested interests (既得利益者). The rich countries's ban on CFCs, for example, is backed by big chemicals firms eager to create a market for their substitutes.
(adapted from The Economist)

  1. What in the air is responsible for acid rain?

5. What played the chief role in bringing down pollution levels?
