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 циф^ Только один раз. В задании есть Один лишний заголовок.

5. А circle of fame

2. Gifted but tragic

3. Famous but normal

4. Buying friends

7. The truth behind the glamour

8. Getting away from it all

A. Today, we live in what is called a ‘celebrity culture’. Many people are famous for no reason, it see But fame can be good or bad, and when it comes, you must be ready to handle it. You can enjoy gi wealth and a luxury lifestyle, or you can fall further than you could imagine.

B. There are established, mature stars, such as Brad Pitt, for example, who has obviously handled worldwide fame well. He managed to guide his life and career safely to the point where, today, h happily married with a family, and he keeps out of the headlines unless he is making a movie or de some charity work — all signs of a balanced, well-adjusted person.

C. There are stars such as Michael Jackson, who was born with a huge talent into a performing fan and thrust into the limelight as a young child. This seems to have affected his development. He ’ ridiculed in the media for his strange private life, and on his sad death it was discovered he’d b addicted to various drugs. Perhaps if he hadn’t been so famous, his life might have been happier i easier.

D. Why are some people famous when they have no special talent or haven’t done anything great? Tf are media figures who are famous for being themselves, and who have their own reality TV sh« which are about their everyday lives — but their everyday lives are about being famous, mainly throi their reality TV show. One seems to follow the other, which follows the first…

E. If you suddenly become famous, you’ll need to deal with the pressure and stress. A public relati manager can help with the paparazzi attention and get the right stories in the right places. You : need to maintain your routine. Don’t change your whole life — eat the same things, keep the ss friends and sleep at the same time as you used to.

E If sudden fame gets too much, if your life has become just a public circus and you can’t take it more, there are still a couple of things you can do. Just disappearing is the obvious one — leave town to a secluded hotel, turn off your phone and don’t check the internet. The public’s attention will s< move on to the next latest thing.

G. Perhaps fame is not really what you think it is. It’s easy to forget the stress, pressure, and constant me attention that come with fame. Next time you see someone on the red carpet in front of the came dressed up in their finest clothes, smiling as hard as they can, ask yourself this: “Is it really worth if

George Stephenson was a famous engineer who earned the name ‘The Father of the Railway’. This is because of his famous steam engine called Rocket, which he built in 1829. He had built trains before, and his son would go on to build more, but ±is was the most famous and most important train of them all. Rocket included some new design features that proved so efficient that it became the model for trains for the next 150 years.

Stephenson was born in 1781. His father’s job involved maintaining steam engines at the local coal mine. George first learnt about steam engines from his father, as did George’s son, Robert, many years later. At the age of 14, George was working with his father, stripping and repairing the great machines.

George decided to learn to read and write to improve himself, going to school three nights a week after work. His intelligence and inventiveness became obvious when he invented a new type of lamp which coal miners could use underground. He turned his attention to the steam engine, and saw how the machines would run better on rails or tracks, rather than on roads.

He kept working on his ideas, and by 1814, he had made his first ‘railway locomotive’. This used a steam engine to transport things along a track rather than a road. Then, five years later, the owners of a local coal mine hired him to build them a railway. In 1825, his Locomotion Number 1 became the first passenger train, running on track he built between two English towns. George himself drove the first train, which carried 450 passengers at 15 miles per hour (25km/h).

When Locomotion Number 1 exploded and killed the driver in 1828, it was clear that some improvements needed to be made. A year later, when the owners of a new line between the major cities of Liverpool and Manchester offered a prize for the best design, Stephenson saw his chance to put his new idea to the test.

Three engines took part in the competition; the other two broke down, and only Stephenson’s newly — designed engine completed the test. This engine. Rocket, was also faster than the others, and so won the right to carry passengers along the line.

On September 15,1830, huge crowds turned out to see the first journey, including the Prime Minister and other important figures. The age of steam had really begun. Tragically, the first fatal railway accident happened on that first day, when the Member of Parliament for Liverpool was knocked over and killed by Rocket.

Rocket was the first train Stephenson built.
