РАздел 2 (задания по чтению)


Прочитайте тексты и установите соответствие между текстами A-G И заголовками 1-8. Запишите свои ответы в таблицу. Используйте каждую цифру Только один раз. В задании есть Один лишний заголовок.

1. Health problems and the young

2. Dangerous lifestyles

3. Health problems and the aged

4. Preventing health problems

5. Getting help with health problems

6. Health and your diet

7. Exercise and health

8. Work and health

A. Staying healthy is just as important as getting help when you do fall ill. Doctors recommend getting vaccinated against certain diseases at a young age, or perhaps when there is a flu epidemic and many people suffer from and spread the disease. ‘Prevention is better than cure, as the old saying goes. It is easier to get ill than it is to get better, so take care.

B. Healthy food is essential for the body and the mind. You are what you eat, so if you eat junk food or drink a lot of sugary drinks, think what it is doing to your body. Another old saying is ‘an apple a day keeps the doctor away’, pointing out the benefits of eating simple, healthy food.

C. A good work-out can keep you fit and healthy, but too much can cause problems. There are two forms of exercise, resistant and aerobic, and both have their advantages, but doctors recommend combining both forms for maximum benefit. It can be difficult to find time to go to the gym, because of work or family obligations, but just a few minutes a week can work wonders.

D. It is not so easy to combine healthy living with your everyday routine, and sometimes a persons job can present problems. For example, if you work long hours, you can become over-tired and your body gets run down. Other jobs involve a lot of pressure, which can cause stress, leading to various illnesses. As always, moderation and care are the best defence against the threat of illness.

E. Some groups of people are especially vulnerable to illness. Babies, for example, need a clean environment as their bodies cannot yet deal with certain germs or bacteria, and can catch all sorts of diseases very easily. They need a lot of sleep and a special diet, too, to ensure healthy growth. Each new family should get the best advice they can from an expert on how to raise a healthy child.

F. Both the young and the elderly are high-risk groups. Age brings wisdom, but it can also bring health problems. As your body grows older, it naturally grows weaker, and special care must be taken at this stage in life. Perhaps some gentle exercise or a change in diet becomes necessary, on the advice of your medical consultant.

G. If you do become ill, you must act quickly. You could make an appointment with your doctor, or if it is more serious, visit the local hospital. Your doctor might refer you to a specialist if the problem requires expert attention, or your hospital visit might turn into a longer stay if you need an operation. The important thing is — seek help!

Many different countries have a national day, and 12th June is one of the newest. This is the day when the Russian people celebrate the beginning of modern Russian democracy. On that date in 1990, a document declaring Russian state sovereignty was signed by the country’s leaders, marking the start of the ‘new’ state of Russia as a nation. 12th June was declared a public holiday in 1994, and three years later someone suggested changing the name of the day, from the original ‘Day of Signing the Declaration of State Sovereignty’. This was finally done in 2002, and to this day 12th June is known as ‘Russia Day’.

Because it is a national holiday, most banks, schools and public offices are closed. Public transport still runs, but with reduced timetables in most places. The Russian flag is flown and the two-headed eagle, the symbol of the Russian Federation, is displayed everywhere. As you would expect, the state puts on a magnificent display, and around the country various official events take place to celebrate the day.

In the capital, Moscow, there’s a big parade through the streets, and sporting events often take place outside the Kremlin. The President of Russia addresses the nation and takes the opportunity to present medals and awards to important and famous people in the arts and sciences.

Perhaps because it is such a new national holiday, some people are a little confused how it should be celebrated. Musical events and firework displays are common across the country. Some people take advantage of the day to celebrate their cultural heritage by dressing in traditional clothes and demonstrating the traditional dances of the various regions. A more modern way of celebrating may include attending pop concerts or going for a picnic in the countryside. Environmentalists have sometimes used the day to draw attention to green issues while still expressing their national pride.

Some Russian communities abroad also celebrate the day. For example, in 2012 a formal dinner in Chicago, USA was attended by various VIPs representing both America and Russia, and included a speech given by the Russian Ambassador to the US. Russian classical music was performed and the dinner featured traditional Russian dishes, while soldiers from both countries were honoured. This celebrated Russia Day and helped to bring Russians and Americans closer together.

Despite this variety of focus, the true meaning of the day is clear. No matter how people celebrate on 12th June, they are celebrating the relationship of a country to its past, present, and future, and — above all — its people.

No other country celebrates a National Day on 12th June.
