The first jeans were made in 1873 in California
by Levi Strauss and Jacob Davis.
         1
Levi was a German who came to San Francisco during the Gold Rush.
He was a successful businessman. He sold a lot of things that gold miners needed.
Among other things gold miners needed strong clothes for their work.
       2
At first miners’ work pants were made of canvas.
But the miners complained that the pants were uncomfortable. Later denim was used.
This material felt comfortable, it was strong, practical and perfect for work clothes.
“Jean” was a material made in Europe .It got its name from sailors in Genoa, Italy because their
clothes were made from it. Before the 1960 jeans were called overalls. The name “jeans’ was
given to them by teenagers who turned jeans into sportswear and play clothes.
         3
The name Tetris come from the Greek word tetra or four. Tetris is a computer puzzle game in
which various shapes each made of four squares fall down a well.
When the well fills up the game ends.
       4
Tetris first appeared in Russia around 1985 and was never patented.
The original authors of Tetris were Alexey Pazhitnov, Dmitry Pavlovsky and Vadim Gerasimov.
        5
Computer engineers A. Pazhitnov and D. Pavlovsky worked together at the Computer Centre of
the Russian Academy of Sciences. A. Pazhitnov had already published and sold several
psychology based games. D. Pavlovsky had written several computer games by that time.
High school student V. Gerasimov who was only sixteen at the time, had just written a
programme for MS DOS when he joined the group.
It was A. Pazhitnov who first designed the Tetris game.
A. Pazhitnov and Henk Rogers later founded the Tetris Company.

On Friday February 14, 2003 Dolly the sheep died. Dolly was the first mammal to be cloned
from an adult cell. She was created by the Roslin Institute, a research centre in Scotland. Dolly
became internationally famous in 1997 when she was shown to the public seven months after her
birth. It was considered one of the most significant scientific achievements of the decade. But
many people believed that it was unethical to clone a living being. Dolly became a symbol of the
promise, or threat, of cloning.
          7
During her six years of life, Dolly suffered from different health problems. When she was young
she was overweight. She had arthritis at the age of five, a fact that suggested she was getting old
very quickly. Before she died, scientists discovered that Dolly had a lung disease. They took the
decision to put her down. She was six years old. Many normal sheep live to twelve years of age.
Dolly had four baby sheep before she died. All four of them are still in good health. Dolly will be
stuffed and put on display in the National Museum of Scotland.

                                              1818-1867


      Russia was active in the northwestern part of North America from

      Much of the history of that period has yet to be written. In
      particular, there is a lack of biographical __________________.

      These     included    administrators,   seafarers,    physicians,
      __________________, and churchmen. Yet, today, with few
      exceptions, most of these are unknown. Of the administrators,
      Grigorii Shelikhov (1747-1795) is well-known for founding the       SCIENCE
      first Russian colony at Three Saints Bay on Kodiak Island, in
      1784, and laying* the groundwork of the Russian-American
      Company, established in 1799 Aleksander Baranov (1746-1819)

       He moved the __________________ center from Three Saints

       since they were in supreme command, they all played important
       roles. They consolidated what Baranov had won and laid the

                            UNIQUE MUSEUM OF UNIQUE THEATRES
        .
          A -----------(standing) children's theatre — these words
       sound unusual for a European or American. Throughout the
       world, performances for little children are usually given by           TO STAND
       individual companies gathered for one season, or by „adult"
       theatres which prepare special performances for young
       audiences.



B11    Russia and other countries that have emerged in place of the ex-
       USSR are_------------------- . The world's first standing children's
       theatre was opened in Moscow way back in 1918. It was called           EXCEPT
       „The Theatre of Puppets, Marionettes and Chinese Shadows".
       It had its own building, its own permanent troupe of actors,
       and technical personnel.
B12   The theatre was founded by Natalya Sats, who ------------- all
      her life to acquainting children with art. Later she opened four
      more children's theatres, including, the Children's Music Theatre
      in Moscow, now named after her. After the first children's
      theatres were opened, an idea arose to open a theatrical
      museum. However, this idea was realized only six decades                 DEVOTION
      later — a unique museum, the only one of its kind, was opened
      in a small building in the middle of Maryina Roshcha Park in
      Moscow.




B13   The State Museum of Children's Theatres remains almost
      unknown to the public at large. More and more items are being
      added to its rich ------------ of sketches of stage scenery, costumes,    TO    COLLECT
      puppets and posters, which makes it possible to trace the entire
      history of Soviet theatrical art. One can see the evolution of
      theatrical styles, genres, and themes over time.




B14   Suddenly, one realizes that the collection represents not
      simply the talented work of an individual, but mass
      consciousness — views characteristic of one period or another,
      because every theatre reflects the epoch in which it existed.
      One can feel one's ---------------with the past. One begins to
      understand its psychology and to look on life through the                      UNION
      eyes of people from the past. And after that, one regards „the
      deeds of days of other years" — which formerly seemed strange,
      naive and wrong — in a different way.




B15   Unfortunately, far from everyone can see the entire collection of
      the museum. The lack of space prevents the museum from
      displaying all its------------, and from admitting all those
      interested. One must file a special application to be admitted to        EXHIBITIONS
      the museum. Every 45 days exhibits at the museum are
      changed.



B16
      Fortunately, the museum is to move to a new, larger building in
      downtown Moscow. The Moscow authorities have already al-
      lotted a plot of land for the------------------. The design for          TO CONSTRUCT
      the new building has already been produced, and investors have
      been discovered.

                            SOME FACTS ABOUT NOVOSIBIRSK

   Novosibirsk, the largest Siberian city, arose on the crossroads of two great routes — the Ob
waterway and the Trans-Siberian railway. This was the site A22 for a railway bridge across the
Ob river by an outstanding Russian engineer and writer Garin-Mikhailovsky. A settlement that
sprang up here in 1893 during the years of construction developed into a small town, named
Novonikolayevsk. In 1925 the town was A23 - --------------Novosibirsk.
   In 1993 Novosibirsk celebrated its hundredth anniversary, and there are not many cities
in the world that grow up as rapidly as our city. Today it covers an area of 480 square kms,
and is the third largest city in Russia after Moscow and St.Petersburg. The birth of its millionth
citizen was celebrated in 1965. It now has A24 -a----------of over 1,500,000.
   Novosibirsk is a major industrial, cultural, trade, scientific and educational A25 _-------_in
Siberia. Dozens of factories and plants have been built to produce heavy machine-tools, powerful
generators, TV-sets and radio-parts, farm machinery, various apparatus, etc.
   „Complex" is the best word to describe the Siberian Branch of Russian Academy of
Sciences. In 1956 academicians M. Lavrentyev, S. Sobolev, A. Trofimuk and other leading
scientists readily responded to set up in Siberia foreposts of modern science. Soon construction
was begun some 25 A26 ---------from Novosibirsk, in the pinewood and birch coppices
spreading along the shore of the man-made Ob sea. This was a daring A27 _--------------_____.
Never before had people of science moved so quickly to developing regions. Siberia assigns to
the scientists so many tasks, opens so many new vistas that only a complex of researches in
many fields can cope with them. Between 1958 and 1968 the Siberian branch developed many
large subdivisions with research centres of their own. They extended research centers in Irkutsk,
Krasnoyarsk, Ulan-Ude, Yakutsk and Vladivostok, Sakhalin, Chukotka, and Kamchatka. The
Academic Centre in Novosibirsk studies a wider range of problems. Twenty institutes have been
A28 _-------- here, including a computer center, specialised design offices, a university, a
botanic garden, and a large technical library.

PART 3                            WRITING


Task 1/5.           This is part of a letter from your English-speaking pen-friend.

  … I’ve never been really slim, so when I started school I was worried about PE. We did
badminton and volleyball, which were OK, but I still felt uncomfortable. At first I didn’t like
putting on my sports kit in front of the other girls in the changing room, but after a few weeks it
was OK.
Then we started gymnastics. I really hated it and my teacher, Miss Bell, made me worse.
Last week one by one my classmates jumped over the horse. Then it was my turn. It was really
high and I was scared. I couldn’t move. Miss Bell laughed at me and joked, “Hurry up, Fatty!”
It was terrible. I ran out of the gym. My face was red and I was crying. I don’t know what to do
about PE now.

Write back soon.
 Love,
Joanna
