1. Girls Outperform Boys

 

Teenage girls are continuing to outperform boys in English while the gender gap in achievements in math and science has almost disappeared. The figures show that last year 80% of 14-year-old girls reached at least the expected level 5 in English, compared with 65% of boys. But in math, the girls are just 1% ahead of boys, while in science the difference is 2%.

 

2. The Only Family

 

 

Imagine living all your life as the only family on your street. Then, one morning, you open the front door and discover houses all around you. You see neighbors tending their gardens and children walking to school. Where did all the people come from? What if the answer turned out to be that they had always been there—you just hadn't seen them?

 

3. Elephant​​ (Most Repeated)

 

The elephant is the largest living land mammal. During evolution, its skeleton has greatly altered from the usual mammal, design for two main reasons. One is to cope with the great weight of huge grinding cheek teeth and elongated tusk, making the skull particularly massive. The other is to support the enormous bulk of such a huge body.

 

4. Russia

 

Long isolated from Western Europe, Russia grew up without participating in the development like the Reformation that many Europeans taking pride in their unique culture, find dubious value. Russia is, as a result, the most unusual member of European family, if indeed it is European at all. The question is still open to debate, particularly among Russians themselves.

 

5. Pluto

 

Pluto lost its official status as a planet yesterday, when the International Astronomical Union downsized the solar system from nine to eight planets. Although there had been passionate debates at the IAU General Assembly Meeting in Prague about the definition of a planet – and whether Pluto met the specifications – the audience greeted the decision to exclude it with applause.

 

6. Carbon Emission​​ (Most Repeated)

 

When countries assess their annual carbon dioxide emissions, they count up their cars and power stations, but bush fires are not included presumably because they are deemed to be events beyond human control. In Australia, Victoria alone sees several hundred thousand hectares burn each year in both 2004 and the present summer, the figure has been over 1 million hectares.

 

7. Electric Car

 

First-year university students have designed and built a groundbreaking electric car that recharges itself. Fifty students from the University of Sydney's Faculty of Engineering spent five months cobbling together bits of plywood, foam and fiberglass to build the ManGo concept car. They developed the specifications and hand built the car. It's a pretty radical design: a four-wheel drive with a motor in each wheel.

 

8. Himalayas

 

Although it hails from a remote region of the western Himalayas, this plant now looks entirely at home on the banks of English rivers. Brought to the UK in 1839, it quickly escaped from Victorian gardens and colonized river banks and damp woodlands. Now it is spreading across Europe, New Zealand, Canada and the US.

 

9. Vanilla

 

The uniquely scented flavor of vanilla is second only to chocolate in popularity on the world’s palate. It’s also the second most expensive spice after saffron. But highly labor-intensive cultivation methods and the plant’s temperamental life cycle and propagation mean production on a global scale is struggling to keep up with the increasing demand for the product.

 

10. Akimbo​​ (Most Repeated)

 

Akimbo, this must be one of the odder-looking words in the language and puzzles us in part because it doesnt seem to have any relatives, Whats more, it is now virtually a fossil word, until recently almost invariably found in arms akimbo, a posture in which a person stands with hands on hips and elbows sharply bent outward, one signalling impatience or hostility.

 

11. Examination

 

The department determines whether or not the candidate has passed the examination. In cases where an appearance for the final public oral examination would constitute a substantial financial hardship for the candidate, the director of graduate studies may recommend to the dean of the Graduate School that the examination be waived.

 

12. Online Shopping Environments

 

A unique characteristic of online shopping environments is that they allow vendors to create retail interfaces with highly interactive features. One desirable form of interactivity from a consumer perspective is the implementation of sophisticated tools/to assist shoppers in their purchase decisions by customizing the electronic shopping environment to their individual preferences.

13. Lights

 

Have you ever picture a world without light? Just think how much we rely on man-made light sources in our lives, without engineers, we wouldn’t be able to live the way we do. No street lights, no TV, no computer displays, no house light, engineers design and build all these things.

 

14. The Most Measurable Benefit

 

Perhaps the most measurable benefit of the program has been the opportunity to me in small groups, something that is difficult to arrange such a desperate organization. Many officers would have to work together for thirty years but would not know others strength and weakness.

 

 

15. Preparation of abstract

 

The preparation of abstract is an intellectual effort, requiring general familiarity with the subject. To bring out the salient points of author’s argument calls for skill and experience. Consequently, a considerable amount of qualified manpower that could be used to advantage in other ways must be diverted to the task of facilitating access to information.

 

16. Domestic Work

 

Traditional divisions of domestic work are understood to persist because of the strong association of the home with femininity and paid work with masculinity – to challenge who does what in the home is arguably tantamount to challenge what it is to be a woman or a man.

 

17. Recycle used materials​​ (Most Repeated)

 

When we recycle, used materials are converted into new products, reducing the need to consume natural resources. If used materials are not recycled, new products are made by extracting fresh, raw material from the Earth, through mining and forestry. Recycling helps conserve important raw materials and protects natural habitats for the future.

 

18. Brain’s working​​ (Most Repeated)

 

Scientists know little about how exactly it works, especially when it comes to complex functions like memory formation. Research is more advanced in animals, but experiments on humans are hard. Yet, even today, some parts of the brain, like the motor cortex, are better understood. Nor is complete knowledge always needed. Machine learning can recognize patterns of neural activity; the brain itself gets the hang of controlling BCIS with extraordinary ease. And neurotechnology will reveal more of the brain’s secrets.

 

19. MBA

 

Exhilarating, exhausting and intense. There are just some of the words used to describe doing an MBA. Everyone’s experience of doing MBA is, of course,

 

Different through denying that it’s hard and a demanding work whichever course you do. MBA is one of the fastest growing areas of studying in the UK so that must be a sustainable benefit against form in one pain.

 

20. Brain Hemispheres

 

The brain is divided into two hemispheres, called the left and the right hemispheres. Each hemisphere provides a different set of functions, behaviors, and controls. The right hemisphere is often called the creative side of the brain, while the left hemisphere is the logical or analytic side of the brain. The right hemisphere controls the left side of the body, and the left hemisphere controls the right side.

 

 

21. Fast food​​ (Most Repeated)

 

Hundreds of millions of people eat fast food every day without giving it much thought. They just unwrap their hamburgers and dig in. An hour or so later, when the burger’s all gone and the wrapper’s been tossed into the garbage, the whole meal has already been forgotten.

 

22. Marketing

 

For any marketing course that requires development of marketing plan, such as marketing management, marketing strategy and segmentation support marketing, this is the only planning handbook that guides students through the step by step creation of customized marketing plan. While offering commercial software to aid in the process.

 

23. Private Equity

 

It isn’t rare for private equity houses to hire grads fresh out of business school, he said, but 9 times out of 10, the students who nab these jobs are the ones who had private equity experience under their belts before even starting their MBA program.

 

24. Productive Capacity

 

The core of the problem was the immense disparity between the country’s productive capacity and the ability of people to consume. Great innovations in productive techniques during and after the war raised the output of industry beyond the purchasing capacity of U.S. farmers and wage earners.

 

25. Plants​​ (Most Repeated)

 

The maximum yield of plants, determined by their genetic potential, is seldom achieved because factors such as insufficient water or nutrients, adverse climate conditions, plant diseases, and insect damage will limit growth at some stage. Plants subjected to these biotic and abiotic constraints are said to be stressed.

 

26. Projects​​ (Most Repeated)

 

This year the National Environmental Science Competition received excellent undergraduate and postgraduate entries from all across the country, with a wide

Range of projects. We are delighted that our awards are encouraging exciting and valuable projects that go beyond research and analysis to develop solutions for a number of key problems. Information about the shortlisted projects will be posted on our website in the first week in June.

 

27. No ordinary book

 

This book is no ordinary book, and should not be read through from beginning to end. It contains many different adventures, and the path you take will depend on the choices you make along the way. The success or failure of your mission will hinge on the decisions you make, so think carefully before choosing.

 

28. Hybrid electric vehicles​​ (Most Repeated)

 

 

Internal hybrid electric, enabling the driver to decide which source of power is appropriate for the travel requirements of given journey. Major U.S. auto manufacturers are now developing feasible hybrid electric vehicles, and some are exploring fuel-cell technology for their electric cars.

 

29. Training process of actor​​ (Most Repeated)

 

The training of an actor is an intensive process which requires curiosity, courage and commitment. You will learn how to prepare for rehearsal, how to rehearse and how to use independent and proactive processes that inform you to do the best work possible for both stage and screen.

 

30. Statistical Information

 

The provision of accurate and authoritative statistical information strengthens modern societies. It provides a basis for decisions to be made on such things as where to (open)locate schools and hospitals, how much money to spend on welfare payments and even which football players to replace at half-time.

 

31. Weakness

 

Weakness in electronics, auto and gas station sales dragged down overall retail sales last month, but excluding those three categories, retailers enjoyed healthy increases across the board, according to government figures released Wednesday. Moreover, December sales numbers were also revised higher.

 

32. Population Growth​​ (Most Repeated)

 

How quickly is the world’s population growing? In the United States and other developed countries, the current growth rate is very low. In most developing countries, the human population is growing at a rate of 3 percent per second.

Because of this bustling growth rate, the human population is well on its way to reaching 9 billion within lifetime.

 

33. Museum of art

 

Using more than fifty interviews, award-winning writer Danny Danziger creates a fascinating mosaic of the people behind New York’s magnificent Metropolitan

Museum of Art from the aristocratic, acerbic director of the museum, Philippe de Montebello, to the curators who have a deep knowledge and passionate appreciation of their collections, from the security guards to the philanthropists who keep the museum’s financial life blood flowing. Most words have experienced several changes in meaning throughout their history.

 

34. Tesla

 

Tesla came over from Graz and went to work for Thomas Edison. Nonetheless Edison offered him a job, promising Tesla fifty thousand dollars if Tesla could redesign Edison’s breakdown-prone DC generator designs. The new generator designs were a vast improvement over Edison’s originals. Upon completing the job Tesla went to Edison to collect the $50,000 promised for the task. Tesla, Edison replied, you don’t understand our American humor. And Tesla was never paid. These two men became arch-rivals.

 

 

35. Marijuana​​ (Most Repeated)

 

Another administration option is to bake marijuana at a relatively low temperature to kill any dangerous microorganisms and then allow that patient to eat it or drink it. Both of these methods of administration make smoking the drug unnecessary. However, criticism of medical marijuana has also been raised because as a natural plant, it cannot be patented and marketed by pharmaceutical companies and is unlikely to win widespread medical acceptance.

 

36. Literature​​ (Most Repeated)

 

One of the important values of literature is that knowledge is our emotional life, the inner life that good review in their characters, often gives us glimpses into some portion of ourselves. We can devote to laugh, cry tremor, dream, ponder, shriek, or risk by simply turning a page instead of turning our lives upside down.

 

37. Swan

 

Before European explorers had reached Australia, it was believed that all swans were white. Dutch mariner, Antounie Caen, was the first to be amazed at the sight of Australia's Black swans on the Shark Bay in 1636.

 

38. Learning​​ (Most Repeated)

 

There is no single method of learning that guarantee success. How we learn that depends on many different factors. And what works best for you will not​​ necessarily be that same as the approach used for the other students even they study the same course. We are all unique as learners, although some patterns emerge any groups of students.

  • (Most Repeated)

 

The first inhabitants in Australia involved one or several successive waves and distinct peoples is a debate, as its timing. The accepted time frame places presence of humans in Australia at 40000 to 43000 years before present, while the upper range supported by others is 60000 to 70000 years when sea levels were lower than today by 100 to 150 m. Today Australia formed a single landmass. The ancestral Australian Aboriginal peoples were established through much of the continent. During the 1970s and 1980s around 120000 southern Asian refugees migrated to Australia. A policy of "multiculturalism" accepted the majority of immigrants came from Asia, led by China and India.

  • Sample answer:​​ This lecture introduced earthquake. It talks about the​​ relationship between the fault lines in the Earth’s crust and an earthquake. Firstly, it tells us where the dislocation of the rock will be, from seven kilometers to several hundred kilometers. Then, it introduced epicenter, the earthquake’s focus, which is beneath the interior of the Earth’s crust and it will release the energy and cause earthquake. Thirdly, we can have faults’ maps according to the position of the epicentres. And at last, it introduced the cause of seismic wave.

  • Sample Answer:​​ This lecture talks about a biology tutorial. In this lecture,​​ the speaker gives many different topics, including DNA and genetics in cells, in bacteria, in life and a lot of interesting stuff. However, the speaker will stick with the basics. According to the speaker, he mentioned the scientific definition of biology which is the study of life in living organisms, such as plants and dogs. In​​ conclusion, it is clear that everyone had their own separate definition of life and we need to have an agreement over “what is life” at the very beginning.

 

  • Sample answer:​​ Bhutan, wedged between China and India, has adopted​​ the Gross National Happiness as the central index of government policy, and actually has a good deal of success in education and in health and in economic growth and in environmental preservation.

  • All of my research and that I conducted was my 60plus graduate students, was motivated by their need to learn, so that we can teach. Of course, in some inventions happened along the way but I’ve always considered the end the result. And I always consider that this invention to be byproduct, byproducts of the learning process. The end product for me was always better understanding or when one really succeeded in unifying theory that can help us in teaching the subject. I’ve also looked at teaching as a vehicle to try new ideas, of new ways to doing things on an intelligent group of learners. That is as the vehicle for the teaching research results. And in my experience, this kind of teaching is the most stimulated and motivating to students. I am also uncovered many interesting research problems is the cause of teaching assumption. It is this unity of research and teaching their close connection and the benefits gathered by exercising and the interplay that to be recognized the successful professor.

This lecture talks about the neural circuits in a bottom-up sequence. Firstly, the brain builds basic circuits that are responsible for basic skills. And then more complex circuits are built on top of those basic circuits. The interaction between genetics and experience shows the reciprocal/mutual relationship that will influence their lives. In addition, our brain is an integrated organ which has multiple sections, so our brain could specialize in different kinds of processes, including cognitive function, emotion, scene and hearing. To summarize, individual learning abilities would be affected by experiences in adult development.
