  4. 3 5 1 National News ▶Reading Comprehension Hot Pepper May Cause Skin Cancer Hot pepper has been very popular recently due to their effect in dissolving fat and leading to possible weight loss. Such a boom may not keep on continuing. A research team found that a substance called capsaicin in the pepper may cause skin cancer. Researchers experimented the effect of capsaicin with the skin of mice regularly for a set period of time. They found out that the regular application made them more exposed to skin cancer. They also explained that capsaicin has the potential to inflame the cells that could possibly stimulate cancer development. However, the researchers said that capsaicin did not cause skin cancer in all the animals tested. This recent finding was published as the cover story of the “Cancer Research” magazine’s September edition. Researchers were Professor Lee Ki-won of Konkuk University and fellow scientists at Seoul National University and the University of Minnesota. ”It is true that chili peppers are helpful to our body. The study will evolve into which part of the food does good and which doesn’t,” Professor Lee of the Konkuk University said. ☞ Choose the best answer based on the article. - 2 -

  7. 3 5 2 AP/Reuters ▶Reading Comprehension Tungsten Replaces Gold for Wedding Rings Skyrocketing gold prices and the economic downturn forcing Americans to tighten their belts, consumers shopping for jewelry have become more willing to consider cheaper alternatives like titanium, tungsten, cobalt and even stainless steel. Over the past three months, tungsten, a steel-gray hard metal, has become an increasingly popular choice over gold for wedding rings. “One in every 10 men’s wedding bands we sold that month was titanium in 30 days,” said John Baird, public relations director with the online jewelry seller. Male consumers seem to like these space-age metals used in making fighter jets, etc. However, women are different, especially with wedding jewelry.

  10. 3 5 3 Entertainment ▶Reading Comprehension ‘Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides’ Walt Disney has released the long-awaited fourth installment of “Pirates of the Caribbean.” “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” stars world-class actors and actresses including Johnny Depp, Penelope Cruz, Ian McShane and Geoffrey Rush. Produced by Jerry Bruckheimer, the producer of the Pirates of the Caribbean series, and directed by Rob Marshall, director of musical film “Chicago,” “On Stranger Tides” is full of surprises, actions, adventures, fun and humor. Johnny Depp, who plays Captain Jack Sparrow, encounters the infamous pirate Blackbeard, and searches for the Fountain of Youth. During his journey, he also meets with other key characters, Penelope Cruz, Ian McShane and Geoffrey Rush. Geoffrey Rush again plays Jack’s rival Captain Hector Barbossa while Penelope Cruz plays the enigmatic Angelica, who is the fiery daughter of the pirate Blackbeard. Ian McShane plays the legendary pirate Blackbeard, whose ship is named the Queen Anne’s Revenge. Angelica forces Captain Jack Sparrow to board the ship and they begin an adventurous journey for the Fountain of Youth. ”This one does not follow the same key characters and story lines of the previous installments. This is a completely new stand-alone story,” said producer Jerry Bruckheimer. The adventure movie is the first “Pirates” to use digital 3D cameras, with which many action scenes deliver realistic effects. For example, when Angelica tries to stab Captain Jack Sparrow through a closed door, her sword leaps off the screen right at the audience. The fantasy adventure film was released on May 19 in Korea and May 20 in the United States. ☞ Choose the best answer based on the article. - 8 -

  16. 3 5 5 Culture ▶Reading Comprehension Two Koreas Set to Play Music Together Musicians of symphony orchestras from the two Koreas may perform joint concerts together regularly in both capital cities, Seoul and Pyongyang. Chung Myung-whun, a renowned world-class conductor and the current music director of the Seoul Philharmonic Orchestra, said this after his recent four-day visit to Pyongyang. “We reached an agreement to hold a joint concert in Pyongyang and Seoul at around December,” said the 59-year-old Korean maestro. “The rest is up to the politicians, but I hope our plan will be realized.” Chung also said that North Korean officials agreed to run programs aimed at nurturing young musicians of the North. During his stay in Pyongyang, Chung conducted a rehearsal of performances by the North’s State Symphony Orchestra and the Unhasu Orchestra and watched the state orchestra perform at Moranbong Theater. Chung praised the flawless performances and advanced skills of North Korean orchestra members. He also expressed his wish to practice and perform together with North Korea’s young artists for about two weeks next year. If realized, the concerts may push forward cultural exchanges at a time when tensions linger after a series of provocative actions that took lives of South Koreans last year. “I believe in the power of music. We can make progress through our shared love for music,” said Chung. ☞ Choose the best answer based on the article. - 14 -

  19. 3 5 6 Issue & Debate ▶Reading Comprehension VAT on Pets Pet owners are upset about the government’s move to impose value added tax (VAT) on medical treatments for pets. According to the Ministry of Strategy and Finance’s plan, pet owners will have to pay a 10-percent VAT more for payments of their pets’ medical treatments starting from July. The government tried to pass the bill last year, but had to drop it due to fierce resistance from pet owners and others affected by the move. Ministry officials say that imposing VAT on medical treatments for animals is a global trend. Citing the cases of Germany, France, Canada, Australia and Asian countries including China and Japan, they stress that many industrialized countries are already imposing VAT on pets. Officials also point out that VAT exemption is usually applied to medical treatments for humans only. Pet owners complain that pets are living creatures and they are more like family members to them. They say it is not a good idea to impose VAT, the kind of indirect tax that people pay when they buy goods or products. Nearly 10,000 people have filed an online petition calling for the government to withdraw the bill. They also point out that many pet owners are ordinary people and it is frustrating for pet owners who are not rich to pay more money to cure their sick pets. Opponents are also concerned that VAT may worsen the social problem of abandoned animals since many owners may abandon their pets because of burden from soaring medical treatment costs. ”Visiting a veterinary clinic costs a lot of money. This is one of the major reasons why people give up breeding pets. An additional tax will only make the situation worse,” said the president of the Seoul Veterinary Medical Association in an interview. ☞ Choose the best answer based on the article. - 17 -

  22. 3 5 7 History ▶Reading Comprehension Chernobyl Disaster The Chernobyl nuclear accident occurred on April 26, 1986 at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant in Ukraine. This disaster is considered the worst nuclear power plant accident in history. It is classified as a level 7 event on the International Nuclear Event Scale, along with the recent nuclear power plant explosion in Fukushima, Japan. The Fukushima disaster is considered far less serious because it has not caused any direct deaths. On April 26, 1986, engineers were carrying out a systems test at reactor number four at Chernobyl plant. During the test, power output suddenly surged. The engineers immediately tried to shut down the reactor. However, the power output became unstable and surged even higher. As a result, the reactor exploded, exposing the graphite moderator of the reactor to air. The graphite moderator caught a fire, which sent a plume of radioactive smoke fallout into the atmosphere. The radioactive materials covered large parts of the western Soviet Union and Europe. From 1986 to 2000, over 350,000 people were evacuated from the most severely contaminated areas of Belarus, Russia, and Ukraine. The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) said the environmental consequences of the accident would be enormous. The accident directly caused thirty one deaths, including the reactor staff and emergency workers. The United Nations Scientific Committee on the Effects of Atomic Radiation (UNSCEAR) said the confirmed deaths from radiation would be 64. However, the World Health Organization (WHO) predicted 30,000 to 60,000 cancer deaths would result. However, a Russian publication, Chernobyl, concluded that more than 985,000 people died as a result of radioactive contamination between 1986 and 2004. In addition, large areas of forests and agricultural land were contaminated with radioactivity and consequently abandoned. Some 694,200 ha (1,715,000 acres) of forest and 784,320 ha (1,938,100 acres) of agricultural land became useless. In 1997, the Chernobyl Shelter Fund was established to finance the Shelter Implementation Plan (SIP). The plan aimed to transform the site into an ecologically safe place by constructing the New Safe Confinement (NSC), a structure that is intended to contain the nuclear reactor at Chernobyl. The confinement is expected to be completed by 2013. ☞ Choose the best answer based on the article. - 20 -

  25. 3 5 8 Places In The News ▶Reading Comprehension Oslo Oslo is the capital city of Norway. A population of 1,442,318 makes it the most populous city in Norway. The city was originally founded by King Harald III of Norway in 1048. The city, however, was largely destroyed by fire in 1642. It went under the reign of Denmark-Norway's King Christian IV. It was rebuilt as Christiania in the late 1800s. In 1925, the city reclaimed its original Norwegian name Oslo. Oslo is considered to be a global city and ranked “Beta World City” in studies performed by the Globalization and World Cities Study Group and Network in 2008. The city has been listed as one of the most expensive cities in the world, along with such global cities as New York, Paris, London, Tokyo, Zurich, Geneva, and Copenhagen. The capital city is the cultural, scientific, economic and governmental center of Norway. It is also a hub of trade, banking, industry and shipping. It is an important center for maritime industries and maritime trade in Europe. The city is home to many companies within the maritime sector, some of which are amongst the world’s largest shipping companies, shipbrokers and maritime insurance brokers. The city has a humid continental climate. Because of its northern latitude, daylight varies greatly, from more than 18 hours in midsummer, when it never gets completely dark at night, to around six hours in midwinter. It has warm summers with average highs of 20-22 degrees Celsius and lows of around 12 degrees Celsius. Winters are cold and snowy with temperatures between minus seven degrees Celsius and minus one degree Celsius. Oslo houses many world-class museums and galleries. The Munch Museum contains the Scream and other works by Edvard Munch (1863-1944), who donated all his work to the city after his death.

  28. 3 5 9 TOEFL Reading ▶Reading Comprehension Migration of Fish Many kinds of fish migrate. They migrate regularly, on a time period that varies from day to year, over distances ranging from a few meters to thousands of kilometers. Fish migration usually takes place for purposes related to feeding or reproducing, but there are also cases which the reasons are still unknown. Tuna and other species like marlin, swordfish, sharks, dolphins and other cetaceans are defined as highly migratory species. These species migrate long distances across oceans in search of food and for breeding purposes. They mostly live in open ocean areas and are found within the 200 mile exclusive economic zones and the international waters or high seas outside the zones. The fish that live in the ocean mostly but migrate and breed in fresh water are called anadromous fish. Salmon is one of the best-known anadromous fish species. Salmon hatch from eggs in small freshwater streams, migrate to the sea to mature. It takes about two to six years for them to mature and when mature, they return to their ‘home,’ where they hatched. Salmon are capable of swimming hundreds of kilometers upriver for migration. Sea trout and shad are also other examples of anadromous fish. Unlike anadromous fish, catadromous fish live in fresh water but reproduce in the ocean. An example of this catadromous fish is the freshwater eels. These eels’ larvae drift on the open ocean water for months to years and come back to their original streams after traveling thousands of kilometers. There are also migrations of fresh fish living in lakes or streams. These migrations usually take shorter cycles compared with other forms of fish migrations, from lakes to streams or vice versa. Fish migration has been important for human since prehistoric times. Certain types of anadromous fish have affected the fishing practices of human since, during their migrations into freshwater streams, they become more vulnerable and it gets easy to capture them. ☞ Choose the best answer based on the article. - 26 -

  31. 3 5 10 Economy ▶Reading Comprehension Trade : Keeping Absolute Gains Why do countries trade? Why does a rich country not produce everything it needs such as rice, beef, mobile phones, computers, TVs and automobiles? Why does a rich country import things from a poor country, and vice versa? Korea exports a large number of automobiles and mobile phones. Korea also imports a great deal of products. Obviously, Korea cannot produce everything it needs. For example, it cannot produce pineapples so it imports them from the Philippines. Korea cannot produce airliners so it imports them from the United States. However, Korea still imports things it can produce. For example, it imports a lot of clothes and shoes from China. Decades ago, Korea produced a lot of clothes and shoes, and exported them. Korea no longer produces them because China has an absolute advantage. In other words, China can produce them with fewer resources. When a country can produce more of goods with the same resources that another country can, it is said to have an absolute advantage in the production of that good. Pretend there are only two countries in the world: Korea and China. They produce only two goods: mobile phones and shoes. The resources of both countries can be used to produce either mobile phones or shoes. Korea produces 100 mobile phones and 75 shoes, while China produces 80 mobile phones and 100 shoes as shown in Table A. What if each country specializes? Korea makes only mobile phones and China makes only shoes. Each country will make twice as much of that product and none of the other as shown in Table B. As a result of each country’s specialization, the world now has more mobile phones and shoes. Korea can trade 100 units of mobile phones for China’s 100 units of shoes. Both countries will benefit from trade. ☞ Choose the best answer based on the article. - 29 -

  34. 3 6 1 National News ▶Reading Comprehension Tired Koreans Koreans work the longest hours and take the fewest holidays among the members of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) according to a survey by Job Korea, an online job portal. Koreans worked an average of 2,256 hours in 2008, down from 2,316 hours a year earlier. But it was still the highest among the 30 OECD members and far more than the OECD average of 1,764 hours. After surveying 952 salaried employees, Job Korea said that they are given an average of 12.2 days in annual leave but spend only 8.4 days for vacation on average. About 66 percent of the workers said they are unable to take a break from work because of the heavy workload, unfriendly workplace atmosphere regarding holiday takers and the negative evaluation from senior officers. Low-ranked workers find it more difficult to take annual leave than managers and other senior-level employees. Moreover, when comparing to employees in other advanced countries, Korean workers are heavily overworked and not free to take vacation. While 89 percent of workers in France usually take all of the legally-guaranteed annual leave, only 53 percent of Korean workers spent all their vacation days. ☞ Choose the best answer based on the article. - 32 -

  49. 3 6 6 Issue & Debate ▶Reading Comprehension Forced Eviction of Homeless Korail, the state-run company responsible for railroad operations, executed eviction operation of homeless people from Seoul Station for the first time on August 22. Officials of the railroad operator expelled homeless people from Seoul Station at 1:30 am. and banned them from coming back to the station until 4:30 am. No serious physical confrontations between the homeless people and officials during the process have been reported. The expelled people spent the night in other stations of the city. Korail stressed that there was no other choice but to evict them by means of force since many people have been filing complaints that homeless people cause inconvenience and threats to people including passengers and those who use the station. It is a necessary measure in order to make the station a better, safer, and more pleasant place for citizens, officials said. Figures by Korail show that approximately 300,000 people use the station a day and many of them had uncomfortable experiences because of the homeless people staying in the station. Numbers of harassment cases against citizens have also been reported. However, civic organizations helping the homeless criticize the measure by Korail.
