The reading passage suggests that global temperature increases in near surface air and oceans. According to the reading, Fourth Assesment Report that the temperature is higer 0.74-0.18 C in 20th century.The polutants are greenhouse gasses relised human activity, fossil fuels and deforestation. As the reading passage mentioned, in 21th century the temperature will be higher about 1.1-6.4 C. But, those predictions are uncertain. According to the reading passage, the sea level in future will be higher and expansion in subtropical deserts is expected. Also, Arctic is in greater danger and the extreme water events, extintions and changes in agriculture may be expected. One more result is more acidity in ocean. The lecture supports the reading by giving differnt view including politic and public oppinion. Global warming brings more damages then benefits according to lecture. Developed countries and those with bigger population tend to have more emitions, for example industrial country has 10 percents more then average. Kyoto protocal was one attempt to reduce the emision of damaged gasses but some countries includig America didn't sign it. Public oppinin differs, and the people in developed area are more aware of the consequences then people in Africa for example. But, this oppinion is raising in many

Thermoregulation (1)Mammals and birds generally maintain body temperature within a narrow range (36-38 °C for most mammals and 39-42 °C for most birds) that is usually considerably warmer than the environment. Because heat always flows from a warm object to cooler surroundings, birds and mammals must counteract the constant heat loss. The maintenance of warm body temperature depends on several key adaptations. The most basic mechanism is the high metabolic rate of endothermy itself. Endotherms can produce large amounts of metabolic heat that replace the flow of heat to the environment, and they can vary heat production to match changing rates of heat loss. // Heat production is increased by such muscle activity as moving or shivering.// In some mammals, certain hormones can produce mitochondria to increase their metabolic activity and produce heat instead of ATP*. This nonshivering thermogenesis (NST) takes place throughout the body, but some mammals also have a tissue called brown fat in the neck and between the shoulders that is specialized for rapid heat production. Through shivering and NST, mammals and birds in cold environments can increase their metabolic heat production by as much as 5 to 10 times above the //minimal// levels that occur in warm conditions. (2)Another major thermoregulatory adaptation that evolved in mammals and birds is insulation (hair, feathers, and fat layers), which reduces the flow of heat and lowers the energy cost of keeping warm. Most land mammals and birds react to cold by raising their fur or feathers, thereby trapping a thicker layer of air. #Humans rely more on a layer of fat just beneath the skin as insulation; goosebumps are a vestige of hair-raising left over from our furry ancestors. ## Vasodilation and vasoconstriction also //regulate// heat exchange and may contribute to regional temperature differences within the animal. ### For example, heat loss from a human is reduced when arms and legs cool to several degrees below the temperature of the body core, where most vital organs are located. #### (3)Hair loses most of its insulating power when wet. Marine mammals such as whales and seals have a very thick layer of insulation fat called blubber, just under the skin. Marine mammals swim in water colder than their body core temperature, and many species spend at least part of the year in nearly freezing polar seas. The loss of heat to water occurs 50 to 100 times more rapidly than heat loss to air, and the skin temperature of a marine mammal is close to water temperature. Even so, the blubber insulation is so effective that marine mammals maintain body core temperatures of about 36-38 °C with metabolic rates about the same as //those// of land mammals of similar size. The flippers or tail of a whale or seal lack insulating blubber, but countercurrent heat exchangers greatly reduce heat loss in these extremities, as they do in the legs of many birds. (4)Through metabolic heat production, insulation, and vascular adjustments, birds and mammals are capable of astonishing feats of thermoregulation. For example, small birds called chickadees, which weigh only 20 grams, can remain active and hold body temperature nearly constant at 40 °C in environmental temperatures as low as -40 °C as long as they have enough food to supply the large amount of energy necessary for heat production. (5)Many mammals and birds live in places where thermoregulation requires cooling off as well as warming. For example, when a marine mammal moves into warm seas, as many whales do when they reproduce, excess metabolic heat is removed by vasodilation of numerous blood vessels in the outer layer of the skin. In hot climates or when vigorous exercise adds large amount of metabolic heat to the body, many terrestrial mammals and birds may allow body temperature to rise by several degrees, which enhances heat loss by increasing the temperature gradient between the body and a warm environment. (6)Evaporative cooling often plays a key role in dissipating the body heat. If environmental temperature is above the body temperature, animal gain heat from the environment as well as from metabolism, and evaporation is the only way to keep body temperature from rising rapidly. Panting is important in birds and many mammals. Some birds have a pouch richly supplied with blood vessels in the floor of the mouth; fluttering the pouch increases evaporation. Pigeons can use evaporative cooling to keep body temperature close to 40 °C in air temperature as high as 60 °C, as long as they have sufficient water. Many terrestrial mammals have sweat glands controlled by the nervous system. Other mechanisms that promote evaporative cooling include spreading saliva on body surfaces, an adaptation of some kangaroos and rodents for combating severe heat stress. Some bats use both saliva and urine to //enhance// evaporative cooling. *ATP: energy that drives certain reactions in cells mitochondria: a membrane of ATP

The Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences recently released the sea level study. It shows sea levels rose faster in the 20th century than in any of the 27 centuries before. The researchers say that from 1900 to 2000, sea levels rose 14 centimeters. Robert Kopp of Rutgers University in New Jersey is the lead author. He called the 20th century sea level rise “extraordinary.” And, Kopp said, “The rise over the last two decades has been even faster.” The study shows that without a warming Earth, sea levels would have dropped by three centimeters and risen by seven. Co-author Stefan Rahmstorf is a professor of ocean physics at the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research in Germany. He says sea levels will continue to go up. How much and how long? The research shows levels could rise more than a meter by the year 2100. Scientists from NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration did the Arctic temperatures study. It found that temperatures at the North Pole hit record highs in January. This news comes after scientists said 2015 was the hottest year ever recorded. Scientists also have noted a huge area of unusually warm water in the northern Pacific Ocean. They say it keeps air temperature about three degrees warmer than usual in that area.
BIOLOGY - BUILDING SKILLS FOR THE TOEFL IBT 11
 
01:54
Biology M:Last week, we learned how most fish use their swim bladder to move around in the water. Remember, when the fish breathes oxygen, some of that oxygengoes into its bladder. This causes the fish to rise in the water. When it squeezes some of the gas out of its bladder, it sinks toward the bottom. So, it can move vertically --- go up and down --- kind of like a hot-air balloon. A shark is more like an airplane. Sharks don't have a swim bladder, so they use their forward movement to control their vertical position. The tail is like the shark's propeller. The shark swings it back and forth to move forward. In an airplane, this forward movement pushes air around the wings. For a shark, this forward movement pushes water around the fins. In both cases, the forward movement creates lift---the airplane and shark both rise. Sharks have two pairs of fins on each side of their bodies. These fins are in about the same position as the main wings and tail wings on an airplane. The shark can position these fins at different angles. This changes the path of the water around them and enables the shark to move quickly upward or downward. The shark also has two vertical fins on its back. These are like the stabilizer fin on an airplane. They allow the shark to keep its balance as it moves through the water and help it turn quickly left and right.
Steps to Learning English: Where should you start?
 
18:54
So you want to learn or improve your English. But where should you start? When you learn a new language, there is so much material to cover: vocabulary, grammar, syntax, slang, pronunciation... With so many topics to study, you may not know where to focus your attention. In this video, I will give you some tips to organize your schedule and decide what you should work on. Whether you are a beginner, intermediate, or advanced speaker, you can always find something to improve on, and I will give you the tools you need to devise a good plan. Hint: it's more simple than you think! http://www.engvid.com/steps-to-learning-english-where-to-begin/ TRANSCRIPT [Singing] Hi. James. Greer. James Greer. From engVid. [Laughs]. Not Bond, and I know you think I was going to say Bond. I know. But listen, Bond always has an important mission he's got to do, right? 007. And so do I. Today we have a mission. We're going to learn how to study English. I know in many places, many websites, they tell you, and to teach you grammar and idioms and phrasal verbs. But then, there's the big question of you, and: How do you study, and how do you choose what is important for you at this moment? Maybe you're advanced. Maybe you're a beginner. Maybe you know this, and maybe you don't. After today's lesson and we do our mission, you'll know exactly what you have to do. Okay? So, we're going to go to the board in a second, and take a look. What steps should we take in order to learn? By the time you're done this video, you'll know exactly... Or you should know where you are, where you need to go, and when you're going to be done. Ready? Let's go. E. E is standing here saying: "Where do I start? Grammar, vocabulary, or speaking?" Common, and seems to make sense, I mean, you go to learn a language-right?-you go on a website, they start throwing things at you. You go to a school, they say you need this, this, and this. But you don't really know. So, I'm going to give you the tools to decide that. First thing we're going to do is: What's the first thing you need? Grammar? No. What? Conversation? No. Vocabulary. What? Well, look. If you can't say: "bathroom" when you go to a country, you're going to pee yourself. Okay? "Hungry", you won't get food. You don't need to know everything to get basic information done. And that's what we should look at first. Basic information for a beginner really is vocabulary. And instead of all the fancy stuff you need, you don't need much. You need you, and a little bit of time, and to have some fun. Why? I'm going to suggest: For basic communication, get vocabulary. I'm telling you right now if I see you or any English-speaking person sees you, and you see... You say: "Drink. Thirsty." There's no grammar, but they'll go: "Oh, the bar is over there." If you say: "Washroom. Please", they'll go: "Oh, toilet is over there." They use sentence, you use words. Sometimes you just touch your belly and go: "Ahh!" They'll go: "Oh, you want food." You don't need all that stuff. People will tell you you need to learn grammar, and this and that. You don't. And here's how you get your first vocabulary. Do what you love to do. Play video games. I've had... I don't know how many students play video games, say they learned how to fire, duck, words that we wouldn't teach them for a while, because they were playing games. Other people come in: "Dah-dah-dah-dah-dah, [sings]", singing. I go: -"What the hell?" -"I love to sing", and they sing a song, they sound like they're just, you know, from this country. Then they speak very terrible accent. You know what I'm saying, right? [Laughs] But when they sing, it's like the gods have come down. I mean, literally, you go: "Are you...? You were born here, right?" Cool slang. You know? YOLO, you only live once. Right? ASAP, as soon as possible. When you do these things, you're learning because you want to learn. You're not even realising you're learning, and it's going to make you want to learn more because... You know, we'll get to the second one and you'll understand. But you want to communicate in a much better way. Okay? So, get the meaning of basic words. "Hungry", "food", "toilet", "money". You know that one, right? You need those things. If you have those things, you can start your adventure in learning English. Okay? And you're going to do it by doing things you love. Video games, music, cool slang. Right? Come on. Now we're making language fun and easy for you, and that's what we should do, because you'll learn it faster. All right? And then here's the bad news: Hard work is on its way, so let's move over to the intermediate.

The Jason-3 satellite launched in January. It is designed to record rising sea levels. Scientists say satellite information recorded over the last twenty years shows sea levels rising fast. They say the fast rising seas are an indicator of climate change. Josh Willis is the Lead Project Scientist for the operation at NASA. He says the Jason-3 satellite collects information using radar. He explains that satellite records have been kept for only about 25 years. But measurements of how the oceans have been changing go back thousands of years. He says the past 2000 years have been stable in terms of sea level and the Earth’s temperature. But in the past one hundred years sea levels have risen quickly. He says that is because of the warming of Earth. All material, including water, expands when heated. The Jason-3 satellite measures how high the surface of the sea is. This permits scientists to estimate how much extra heat is stored in the ocean. Eric Leuliette is with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. He says sea levels are an expression of climate change for two reasons. He says excess heat is causing the ocean to expand. And, he says the planet’s warming causes glacial ice to melt into the oceans and increase sea levels. Leuliette says Jason-3 information will help scientists monitor the effects of rising sea levels. He says it will also help in predicting, and preparing for, big storms.

Foraging for food is an activity gaining in popularity across the globe. Not only does finding food in the forest afford the forager free meals, it also provides valuable exercise. The cleanest air on the planet is found in woodland areas; many city dwellers find time to visit the rural areas to take in the fresh cool breeze. Foraging can also find nature's best water from streams, rivers and springs. Spring water provides a complete source of minerals for the body to rebuild. This clean, high-mineral water helps detoxify the body from unwanted heavy metals such as mercury and lead that compete for binding sites in the body. The exercise from hiking in the wilderness cleans the body by sweating and inhaling large quantities of oxygen. Hard exercise causes increased adenosine triphosphate (ATP), leading to the production of new, healthy cells. These cells are stronger than the previous cells and can repair faster and allow the body to live longer! What is foraging? Foraging is finding food in the woods. What else can you do in the woods? I can go hiking and find water in the woods. Why is spring water good? Spring water contains good minerals for the body. What competes for binding sites in the body? Lead and mercury compete for binding sites. Use the word 'afford' in two sentences. I can afford to buy a car because I have enough money. My car affords me the ability to drive to work.

You're not at your best when you're stressed. In fact, your brain has evolved over millennia to release cortisol in stressful situations, inhibiting rational, logical thinking but potentially helping you survive, say, being attacked by a lion. Neuroscientist Daniel Levitin thinks there's a way to avoid making critical mistakes in stressful situations, when your thinking becomes clouded — the pre-mortem. "We all are going to fail now and then," he says. "The idea is to think ahead to what those failures might be."

Peter runs the very popular YouTube channel potholer54 and it is for this channel he originally made this series. The Flagship Movement is always working towards informing the general public about anything related to sustainability and as climate change in recent years have become a central part of any sustainability work, and the debate about it have become so infected with unscientific nonsense - we felt that we needed to try and clear things up a bit using the actual science. We felt that Peter's YouTube series are among, if not THE best regarding the issue of climate change.

IELTS Reading strategies: True, False, Not Given
 
15:44
http://www.engvid.com/ Oh no! My IELTS test is coming, and I am not prepared! Sound familiar? In this video I will give you tips on how to do well on one of the hardest parts of the IELTS. I will explain a specific type of question you may find in the Reading module of the IELTS: True, False, or Not Given. After watching this class, you can try to do some practice questions. After all, practice makes perfect. http://www.engvid.com/ielts-reading-strategies/ TRANSCRIPT Hello. My name is Emma, and in today's video, we are going to be looking at the IELTS, that scary test a lot of you have to do. We're going to look at, specifically, one type of reading question for the academic reading. So this isn't for the general; it's for the academic reading. We're going to talk about the question that has to do with "true, false, or not given". So this is a specific question. It may or may not be on your test, but I think, personally, this is one of the most difficult questions on the reading section of the IELTS. So I'm going to give you some tips and strategies on how to do well on this section. Okay, so let's get started. In this section, what you are going to find is a reading passage. So you will have a long passage on maybe cybercrime, maybe food security, on the history of the Internet -- it can be on anything. After the passage, there will be some statements, some facts, okay? What you need to do is you need to say if the fact matches -- if it's true based on the reading, if it's false based on the reading, or if the information is not given in the reading. So I will explain "true", "false", "not given" in detail in just a minute. Okay. What else to know about the "true, false, or not given"? Another important thing about this question is we're not talking about the question that has to do with the writer's opinion. There's a very similar question on the IELTS that asks about the writer's opinion. That's the "yes, no, not given". This is only on "true, false, not given", not "yes, no, not given". Just -- hopefully, that will clear up any confusion. Okay. So let's get started. What do they mean by "true" in these questions? When would you write "true"? I will show you. You can write "true" or "T". "T" is shorter. If there is a fact and it is clearly written, you write "T". If the fact is clearly written in the reading, you would write "T". You'll often see synonyms, and, again, write "T" only if you actually see this fact written. If you know the fact is true, but it's not written, don't write "true". Only write "true" if, with your eyes, you read it, and you see it in the fact. You see it in the reading; write "true". So I'll give you an example of this type of question. Here is just a part of a passage. The reading is a lot longer, but here is a short version that you might find on the IELTS. "This increase in cybercrime has alarmed many experts." So it would be a long passage. You might see something like that. And then, at the end of the reading, one of the statements you might see might say, "Cyber crime is on the rise." You need to say if this is "true", "false", or "not given". So how do you know if it's "true", "false", or "not given"? My advice to you is first, read the statement: "Cyber crime is on the rise"; underline any key words. "Cyber crime" -- this is a keyword. "is on the 'rise'" -- that's a keyword, okay? Then you go back to the reading passage, and you quickly scan for these words or synonyms. What are "synonyms"? "Synonyms" are words that mean the same thing but are different words. So what is a synonym of "rise"? "Increase", "go up", okay? So let's see if we can find "cyber crime" or "rise". So I would scan the passage -- oh, the word "increase", "cybercrime". So "rise", "increase", okay. So I found a synonym. Now, it's important for me to read very carefully to see if there are any contradictions. What does the sentence say? Does it really match? "This increase in cyber crime has alarmed many experts." "Cyber crime is on the rise." Both of these -- both the reading passage and the fact or the statement are saying cyber crime is increasing. It's going up. So that would mean it's true. So I could write a "T" beside this, "true". Okay. One thing to look out for with "true": Sometimes you will see words like "some", "all", "only", "never", "usually", "often", "sometimes". Be careful with these words, okay? Because if it says, "Some people in Canada like to eat poutine", and you see the sentence saying, "Poutine is always eaten by Canadians", even though you see the two words -- oh, "poutine", "poutine" -- one says "always", one says "some". So this would not be a true statement. So be on the lookout for "some", "all", "only", "never", "usually". This is where they try to trick you on the IELTS...
What is CORAL ISLAND? What does CORAL ISLAND mean? CORAL ISLAND meaning & explanation

What is CORAL ISLAND? What does CORAL ISLAND mean? CORAL ISLAND meaning - CORAL ISLAND definition - CORAL ISLAND explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6UuCPh7GrXznZi0Hz2YQnQ A coral island is a type of island formed from coral detritus and associated organic material. They occur in tropical and sub-tropical areas, typically as part of coral reefs which have grown to cover a far larger area under the sea. Islands develop from coral reefs through one of two processes, uplift and accretion. In uplift, part or all of the coral reef becomes land as a result of the earth's crust rising above sea level. In accretion, rocks and sand are layered on top of coral reefs during cyclonic storms, and the gradual accumulation of other solid material through the action of wind and waves leads to the development of the island. The process is later enhanced with the remains of plant life which grows on the island. Where coral islands form from atoll reefs, the result is an island or string of islands in a roughly circular form, surrounding a shallow lagoon. Most of the world's coral islands are in the Pacific Ocean. The American territories of Jarvis, Baker and Howland Islands are clear examples of coral islands. Also, some of the islands belonging to Kiribati are considered coral islands. The Maldives also consist of coral islands. St. Martin's Island is an 8 km2 coral island located in Bangladesh. Coral islands are also located near Pattaya and Koh Samui, Thailand. Many coral islands are small with low elevation above sea level. Thus they are at threat from storms and rising sea levels.

Learn English: 11 ‘mind’ expressions
 
20:36
Did you know that there are A LOT of expressions in English with the word "mind" in them? "Mind" is a very common word with several different meanings. In this video, I will teach you the three main ways in which "mind" is used in expressions, and then I'll give you 11 very common expressions using the word. The expressions I'll teach you include: Do you mind?, Would you mind?, What's on your mind?, my mind went blank, mind the gap, have someone in mind, give a piece of my mind, lose one's mind, cross one's mind, make up one's mind, and keep in mind. By learning these expressions, you will improve both your listening and speaking. TEST YOURSELF WITH THE QUIZ: https://www.engvid.com/11-mind-expressions/ Hello. My name is Emma and in today's lesson I am going to teach you a bunch of new vocabulary expressions. These expressions are all very common and very useful. So, the expressions we're going to learn today all have the word "mind" in them. Okay? And there are a lot. I'm not even covering all of them because there are so many expressions in English with the word "mind", so we're only going to cover some of them, but we're going to cover the main ones. Okay, so, when we talk about "mind", there are different ways we're talking about mind. "Mind" can have to do with the brain and with thinking or thoughts. Okay? So, sometimes when we're talking about mind we're talking about our brain or we're talking about our thoughts. Sometimes we're talking about something totally different with mind. Sometimes when we're talking about mind we're actually talking about being polite. For example: "Do you mind?" this is something where you're being polite. And then we also use "mind" when we're telling somebody to pay attention to something. For example: "Mind the gap" or "Mind the hole". So we have these three times where we're using "mind" and we have a lot of different expressions for each of these different categories. So we're going to go over each of these. I'm going to teach you a bunch of expressions where "mind" has to do with thought or brain, I'll teach you a lot of expressions where it has to do with politeness, and then I'm going to teach you a lot of "mind" expressions that have to do with paying attention. But this is pretty much one way you can look at these expressions. So let's get started by talking about... When we're talking about mind, and thoughts, and the brain. So, first, when we talk about "mind" one meaning of "mind" can have to do with pretty much the brain, but it's not exactly the brain. Okay? So your brain is in your head and it's a physical thing. You can touch the brain, you can feel the brain, you can see the brain, smell the brain, so it's physical. Mind is not physical. You can't see the mind because the mind is where your thoughts are, where your memories are, and these are things you can't really see or feel, but they're somewhere in here; we just can't see them because they're not physical. So, for example: Einstein, very famous scientist: "Einstein had a brilliant mind." Okay? So this means Einstein had brilliant thoughts, he was very smart. He had, you know, brilliant ideas. These things are all in his mind. So it's similar to brain, although not exactly the same thing, it's very similar to brain. We can also say: "psychologist". A psychologist is a job and people who are psychologists, they study the human mind, meaning they look at the brain and they look at people's memories, they look at the way people have ideas, and they think about: "Where do these things come from?" Okay? So they study the human mind. So, a lot of the times when we use the word "mind", we're talking about kind of your brain and your thoughts. You know, we might say: "Oh, Beethoven had an incredible mind", or you know: "In your opinion, which minds were the greatest of the 20th century? Who had the greatest mind?" Meaning: Who had the greatest ideas, and thoughts, and pretty much brain? Okay, so that's "mind". Now, let's look at another way we use "mind" and that's in the expression: "on someone's mind". So this is a very common expression. In English we often ask: "What's on your mind?" Or we also say: "I have a lot on my mind." So, what does: "on my mind" mean? And make sure you have "on someone's mind", so it can be: "on my mind", "on your mind", "on her mind", "on John's mind", you can pretty much put any person here. What does it mean? Well, when we talk about "on our mind" we're usually talking about problems, so we're usually talking about problems that we are thinking about. These are thoughts, we're thinking about something so it's on our mind.

This has increased the amount of salt in fresh water used on coastal farms. As a result, farmers are increasingly unable to use fields close to the sea. Scientists call this process “salinization.” The term comes from the word “saline” -- which means a mixture of salt and water. The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization says salinization is reducing the world’s irrigated lands by 1 to 2 percent every year. Irrigation is the process of supplying land with fresh water from other areas. But a farmer in the Netherlands is now using a mixture of sea and fresh water to grow healthy and tasty vegetables. Marc Van Rijsselberghe started with an experiment. He put several different kinds of plants in saline. Mr. Van Rijsselberghe worked on the project with scientists from the Free University of Amsterdam. He divided a farm into eight areas. Each was irrigated with either fresh water or water with different levels of salinity. Computerized measuring devices called sensors controlled the water levels and the levels of salinity. Mr. Van Rijsselberghe says he was able to harvest vegetables from most of the eight test areas. He says the vegetables were smaller than those grown in fresh water. But he says they also had more sugar and salt, so they tasted better. The farmer grew carrots, cabbage, onions and beetroot. But he found that potatoes grew better than the other vegetables.

My name is Emma, and in today's video, I am going to talk a lot about the IELTS test, specifically writing task one. I'm going to teach you about a certain thing you might see on the IELTS, and that's a pie chart. I'm going to explain what a pie chart is, and ways to talk about pie charts in order to improve your vocabulary mark for the IELTS. Many students get really, really confused when they see graphs on the IELTS, and they get really confused trying to talk about numbers, specifically. So, in this video, I'm also going to talk about: How do we describe numbers when we're looking at pie charts? How do we describe percentages? You know, and how can we make our vocabulary very varied? Okay? So, let's get started. The first thing I want to do is talk about: What is a pie chart? So, I have here three different types of graphs. Three different graphs you might see on the IELTS, in the writing section, in the very first part of the writing section. Okay? You might see a picture like this, like this, or like this. So, one of these looks like a pie, something you eat. Which one do you think looks the most like pie? If you said this one, you are correct. This is what we are going to be talking about today. We can call it either a "pie chart" or a "pie graph". Both are correct. You might also see this one, this one is called a line graph; or you might see this, which is called a bar graph. So, let me write that on the board. So, "pie chart", "line graph", and "bar graph". You might also see a process, a diagram, or maybe even a table on the IELTS. But for today, we are only going to be focusing on pie charts. Okay, so what is a pie chart? A pie chart shows us percentages. Okay? So, if we look down here, I have here what I spend my money on. Okay? I want you to imagine each month, all the money I make, all my salary, this is what I spend it on. I spend some of it on rent, I spend some of it on food, I spend some of it on transport or transportation, and I spend some of it on fun. Okay? So, on the IELTS, you might have to describe something like this. It might be more complicated. Sometimes you might actually have two pie graphs or pie charts that you might have to compare and describe, but in this case, let's start out a little bit easier. So, I want you to imagine you're writing the IELTS, and you've been told to describe this pie chart. What are you going to say about it? Okay? Well, the very first thing you should do is you should think about: What does it all mean? And by that, I mean: Think about how much percent is each thing? Okay? So, for example, for cost of living, how much is this? What size does this look like? Although we can't be sure, because I'm not the best artist and this is not a perfect circle, I would say this is about 50%. Okay? And this, what does it look like to you? Maybe 25%. So, food is around 25%. Transport we might say... Let's say 15%. And fun, maybe 10%. Although, we're not sure. So, on the IELTS you might see something like this. You might actually have the percentages written, so you already know what it is, or you might actually have numbers. Okay? So, this might actually be money, and so it might actually say, like, $500 to rent, $200 to food, and so forth. Okay, but the first thing to do is really think about: What are the percentages, here? Okay, so to begin a sentence when we're talking about the pie chart, these are three different sentences that are very great... Really, really good sentences to use on the IELTS when you're talking about pie graphs. The first one is: "According to the chart", you can also say: "We can see from the chart", or "We can see from the pie chart", "The chart shows that", okay? So these are good ways to open up the sentence, and then to actually talk about what you see here.

These include lowering interest rates again. The financial moves are the latest efforts to lift the economy of the 19 countries that use the euro currency. The European Central Bank, or ECB, cut all three of its main interest rates. Officials at the ECB hope banks will lend more money to businesses and consumers to help the region's economy. The Eurozone economy has had low growth for many years. Growth was 0.3 percent in the last three months of 2015. The ECB cut its three main interest rates in March. The rate to refinance was reduced to zero from 0.5 percent. The rate for deposits with the central bank was cut further to negative 0.4 percent. That negative interest rate means that depositors pay the bank instead of receiving interest payments. The unusual measure is meant to persuade banks to lend money rather than keep it with the central bank. The ECB also said it would increase the purchase of bonds from 60 billion euros each month to 80 billion euros. That move provides more money to financial institutions that hold the bonds, putting more money into the Eurozone economy. European Central Bank president Mario Draghi says that the new moves show the ECB is not out of ideas to help the economy. He says interest rates will stay very low for a long time. But, he adds it will not be necessary to reduce rates further.

Satellites measure conditions on the ground and share the data with communities. A partnership between the National Aeronautics and Space Administration and the U.S. Agency for International Development developed such a system called SERVIR. SERVIR captures images and environmental data, like dangerous weather, and changes in water use. Scientists feed that information into computers. The analysis is shared with people, governments and organizations in the affected areas. It helps them to react and prepare. Dan Irwin is the director of the NASA SERVIR Coordination Office. He said that the SERVIR project shares important information with countries all over the world. He says it can help them deal with issues like air quality and loss of forests. Jennifer Frankel-Reed is the Senior Climate Change Specialist for USAID. She said SERVIR helped warn Bangladeshis of flooding, and prevented people in El Salvador from eating unsafe seafood. Kenya depends heavily on tea farming, and farmers there have avoided losing crops to rising temperatures. Developed in 2004, SERVIR brought together the U.S. agencies with the World Bank and Central American Commission on Environment and Development. The project now operates in more than 30 countries.
Learn English for Call Centers and Customer Service Jobs
 
05:31
Does your job involve speaking with customers in English? If you want to speak clearly and politely to customers, this lesson is for you! You'll hear a model conversation full of polite expressions you can use at work. I'll teach you the correct way to greet customers, and how to ask common questions that come up in customer service and sales jobs in call centers. This is a great way to improve your job performance or to prepare for a call center interview. I'll also teach you a secret that all the top customer service agents know. Beyond call center training, this lesson will help anyone who wants to communicate more professionally and politely in the workplace. http://www.engvid.com/learn-english-for-call-centers-and-customer-service-jobs/ TRANSCRIPT Hi. I'm Rebecca from engVid. Being polite is always important, but it's especially important if you have a job in a call centre or in any customer service oriented position. So, let's look at what it sounds like when we meet a polite employee and a rude employee, whether it's on the phone or in person. But this dialogue that we're going to go through is actually on the phone. So, let's listen. Okay, so we have here two employees, Rude Robert and Polite Patricia, and they speak very differently. So let's listen to Robert. Robert answers the phone, and he says; "Yes? Huh?" Patricia says: "Hello. Good morning." Robert goes on: "What do you want?" Patricia says: "May I help you? How can I assist you?" Then Robert says: "Wait a minute." Patricia says: "Just a moment, please." Then Robert can't hear, so he says: "What? Huh? Can't hear you." Patricia says: "I'm afraid I didn't hear what you said. Could you speak a little louder, please?" Now, in this case, we were listening to both people. Right? Let's just go and listen to Robert by himself and see what he sounds like. "Yes. Huh? What do you want? Wait a minute. What? Huh? Can't hear you." Now let's listen to Patricia. "Hello. Good morning. May I help you? How can I assist you? Just a moment, please. I'm afraid I didn't hear what you said. Could you speak a little louder, please?" Who would you rather meet on the phone? Let's continue this dialogue. And Robert continues. Let's listen in. "What else? Is that it?" Patricia says: "Will there be anything else? Will that be all? Is there anything else I can help you with today?" Robert says: "Gimme yer email." Now, you see, I wrote here: "Gimme your email." Okay? That is not proper English; that is not correct English. Don't write like that. But I wrote it like that because when people speak really fast and they speak very casually and very, very, very informally, then it sounds like that. But it's only proper in certain informal situations with your friends or something like that; not in the workplace. Okay? And certainly not in a customer service kind of position. So, you will see some things like that here, but don't try to talk like that or write like that if you have a customer service job. So, Robert says: "Gimme your email." Patricia says: "May I have your email please?" Robert says: "How many boxes do ya want?" Patricia says: "How many boxes would you like?" Now, that's something to really pay attention to. When we change: "Do you want" to "Would you like", it makes a world of difference. "Would you like" is very, very polite, and "Do you want" is very ordinary. So make sure that you use: "Would you like", even if you don't have a customer service job. It's just a much more polite way of speaking. Let's continue. So, Robert says: "How do you wanna pay?" And Patricia says: "How would you like to pay?" Again, we see: "Do you want" or "wanna" and "Would you like". Right? "How will you be paying today?" And Robert says: "Okay. Bye!" And Patricia says: "Thank you very much. Have a nice day. Now, did you notice that when I was reading Patricia's part, I was smiling; when I was reading Robert's part, I wasn't smiling? So, most call centres and customer service positions train their employees to smile while they're speaking, because they say that we can hear your smile. All right? And it's true. And if you go back and listen to this video, you might hear my smile even if you're not looking at the video. So try that yourself. If you want to sound friendlier, if you want to sound more polite, if you want to sound warmer - then smile, especially when you're on the phone. And even though people can't see you, they can hear your smile and your warmth. Okay? So, keep these points in mind. They can make or break your career. All right? If you'd like to do some practice on this, please go to our website: www.engvid.com. Thanks very much for watching. Bye for now.

Answering all those emails and processing all that information can overload the brain, causing stress. That is the finding of the company, Future Work Centre. The London-based business carries out psychological research on workplace life. Richard MacKinnon was the lead writer of a report on messaging habits. He said e-mail can be a valuable, time-saving communication tool. But he said it can also be a source of stress and even anger for many people. He said stress does not come from the number of emails received. The problems are linked, instead, to how people deal with email. The study found two very stressful email behaviors. One is to leave email on all day – and never sign off. The other is to read and answer emails early in the morning and late at night. Not all jobs are equal in connection in email stress. The jobs with the most email stress are: marketing, public relations, media and information technology. There are ways to cut down on email stress. Plan your use of email. Do not immediately react to email alerts. Use an automatic “Out of Office” reply more often. Use the telephone more to communicate. Even better, talk to people face-to-face when you can. Restrict use of the “reply all” tool on email. Email is here to stay. So, it is important that people control their email instead of it controlling them.

However, scientists have also identified genetic mutations, or changes in the gene’s structure connected to the disease. Researchers at Tel Aviv University are studying the history of colon cancer. Microbiologist Rina Arbesfeld is with the university. She wanted to know how genetic mutations and developing colon cancer are related. To help her research, Arbesfeld turned to a surprising source: Hungarian mummies, discovered in 1994 in a church repair project. These dead bodies rested in a cool, dry climate for more than two and half centuries. Their fluids and organs were found intact. This means the mummies have tissue that could be tested for evidence of disease. Arbesfeld and her team separated genetic samples from 22 mummies. Then they looked at patterns in the genetic material to search for mutations. She says that after many tries, her team found one specific mutation in a gene called APC. This gene is important. Arbesfeld explains that the APC gene is the “guard” for the development of cancer. This information led Arbesfeld to a theory. She says if our ancestors with this genetic mutation for colon cancer lived long enough, they would have developed the disease. Arbesfeld says her next step is to test genetic samples from other sources. She says understanding the genetic past of a disease can help handle its future.

Government-supported trading will also continue. Liu Shiyu is the new chairman of the China Securities Regulatory Commission, or CSRC. The CSRC is the government agency that supervises China’s stock markets. Liu says that reforms in the IPO system will not take place anytime soon. And that supporting the reforms will require a process and time. Liu also says government-run organizations, which support the market during price drops, will continue to operate. China is open about its direct intervention in the market to support stock prices. The government-run China Securities Finance Corporation Limited has played a major part in supporting the stock market. This was especially true after stock prices on China’s major exchanges sharply dropped in June of last year. The fund reportedly has invested in almost 600 publicly traded companies. Johnny Fang is a stock expert with Shanghai-based Z-Ben Advisors. He says there has been improvement in the way IPOs have been approved in recent months. But, he says that Liu Shiyu still considers market stability very important.
Aprende inglés: 10 common Spanish speaker mistakes
 
14:30
http://www.engvid.com/ ¿Hablas español? Checa este video y deja de cometer los 10 errores más comunes en inglés que cometen los hablantes del español. Los hablantes de otros idiomas también cometen estos errores. Vamos a repasar algunos de los errores más comunes en la pronunciación y en la gramática inglesa, que a su vez, afectan tu inglés escrito y tu inglés oral. Al final del video te recomendamos que hagas el examen para que practiques y aprendas más inglés. Good luck! ¿Hablas español? Watch this lesson to avoid ten common mistakes Spanish speakers make "en inglés". But this lesson is not JUST for Spanish speakers! These mistakes are common among speakers of many other languages too! We will look at some common pronunciation and grammar errors, which also affect your speaking and writing in English. Take our quiz at the end to practice your English. Buena suerte! http://www.engvid.com/10-spanish-speaker-mistakes/ Hello! Hola! My name is Emma. Me llamo Emma. And in today's video, we are going to look at ten common mistakes Spanish speakers make. Now, if you are not a Spanish speaker, don't worry. You can still watch this video because some of these mistakes you might be making as well, okay? So they are ten common mistakes especially for Spanish speakers. Now, before I get started, some of our Spanish audience has asked questions. "Emma, can you speak Spanish?" The answer is: Yo hablo un poco. A little. I think's it's that. I'm learning Spanish, but my Spanish is not perfect. So if I mispronounce any words in this video, any Spanish words, I'm sorry. I apologize now. So let's get started. So we have ten in total, all right? Let's look at No. 1. A common mistake I see my Spanish students make is they often forget the subject of the sentence. So they often forget "it" at the beginning or "I" at the beginning. For example, in Spanish, I think you can say, "Soy canadiense." "I'm Canadian." In English, you can't do this. You always need the subject. So make sure you don't make this mistake. Remember, you need either "it", "I", "he", "she", "we", "they", "you" -- you always need a subject. Problem No. 2 I see is the pronunciation of E and the I sound, especially when it comes to "this" and "these". When I hear my Spanish speakers -- or my Spanish students, sorry. When I hear them use "this", sometimes it sounds like "these" to me. I hear "these, these". They don't always pronounce the difference. So this is a common mistake. It's very important to practice the I sound versus the E sound. How do we do this? With E, you smile. "These" -- you see the big smile? "These". With the I, you don't really smile. "This" -- you have a serious face. "This, this, and these", I want you to practice saying "this" and "these". You see how different my mouth looks when I say "this" and "these"? Now, this is very important, not just for "this" and "these", but many words in English. Students mistake the E sound and the I sound. What are some other examples? Well, this is a bad example, but "shit" and "sheet". Okay? "Shit" is "mierda". "Sheet" -- I don't know what it is. But it's like a piece of paper or a bed sheet. So notice you have two E's. It's an E, "sheet". This one -- "shit". Okay? So serious. "Shit". It's very important. Also, there are many bad words in English, and they usually have the I sound. "Shit". Another bad words -- and I'm only saying these words to teach you not to make this mistake. Another bad word: "bitch" versus "beach".
How to discuss a topic in a group
 
09:21
Five English teachers come together to show you how to discuss a topic in a group. You'll learn how to give your opinion, interrupt, contradict, and more. We'll teach you how to use expressions like "in a nutshell", "please let me finish", and "don't get me wrong". You can use these expressions confidently in personal, social, and professional situations. Make sure to test your understanding of the lesson at https://www.engvid.com/how-to-discuss-a-topic-in-a-group/ To improve your English, subscribe to each of the teachers who appear in this lesson: Ronnie - http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=EnglishLessons4U James - http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=JamesESL Alex - http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=AlexESLvid Adam - http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=EnglishTeacherAdam Rebecca - http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=RebeccaESL TRANSCRIPT: Hi! My name is Rebecca, and in today's lesson you'll learn how to participate effectively in a discussion in English, something you may need to do in your personal, professional, or academic life, okay? Now, the topic we'll use as our sample is this one: Is it better to study online or in a regular classroom? Okay? You'll have a chance to hear a discussion by native English speakers on this topic. What I'd like you to do is listen for any special expressions and phrases that they use during the discussion. Afterwards, I'll review the expressions and phrases with you, okay? Now, today I have some special friends who have agreed to help me with this lesson, and they're waiting in the classroom next door, so let's go and say hello to them. -- Hello! -- Hello! -- Hi! -- Hi! -- Well, look who's here. It's -- -- Ronnie. -- Alex. -- James. -- Adam. -- Thank you for joining me, and thanks for helping with this lesson, guys. -- No problem. -- No problem. -- So you know we're talking about discussions, and the topic is: Is it better to study online or in a regular classroom? Okay, who wants to go first? -- Okay, so I'll start, and I think that it's actually very good to study online because it's very convenient because you can study whenever you want and at your own pace. For example, someone like me, I like to study at nighttime. So for me, online works better because it's quiet at night, no one disturbs me, and I can do what I need to do. -- Okay, that's true, but if you're going to study online -- -- Sorry, but -- -- Please let me finish. Let me finish. As I was saying, that's true, but if you're studying online you do need to motivate yourself, so I think it's better to be in a classroom where you have other students and a teacher who can motivate you. -- That's true, but some people can't afford to go to a classroom and don't have enough money or resources to actually go to a big school. So studying online, you can actually do it for free. -- Me? Well, I would like to add -- May I say something? -- Sure. -- Soft skills. That's not usually talked about in schools, but when we talk about "soft skills", it's actual interaction, utilizing your English when you're with other people, and that's hard to get online because you're watching a screen and not actually interacting with other people. -- You make a very good point but I would also like to add that sometimes having classmates takes you away from your focus because you have to maybe review things many times for other people to catch up, or you have to do topics that are interesting to other people, not to yourself. So it's a little distracting sometimes, too. -- However, focus is a good thing. I mean, it's not a bad thing to repeat something because sometimes people don't catch the material the first time. So that way, you go over the material, and they -- you know, you get depth. So you get to learn more, and people who don't understand get the opportunity to ask questions and learn from it again. -- Yeah, but sometimes the resources that you get in a classroom are boring, and online you can just look up whatever you need on the Internet, and you've got it right there. You don't have to rely on a textbook. Sometimes it can be a bad textbook.

The two landed in Kazakhstan March 2 on a Russian spaceship. Kelly and Kornienko spent 340 days in space. They lived on the International Space Station or ISS for longer than anyone else. Now, Kelly also holds the record for the longest time an American has spent in space: 520 days. After landing, the two men were put in special chairs until they got used to Earth’s gravity. Kelly spoke about the difficulties of living on the ISS for a year. He says it was a severe environment with only a small personal space. He says the toughest part for him was being away from loved ones. Kelly and Kornienko performed scientific experiments on the ISS, including growing flowers and vegetables. NASA hopes the studies will help guide its Journey to Mars program. It will take astronauts about 500 days to travel to Mars and back. During that time they will need to grow their own food and share small spaces for many months. Scott Kelly is also part of a twin study. He has an identical twin brother. Mark Kelly is a former astronaut. During the past year, NASA has been testing the brothers. NASA researchers are studying how time in space changes the way a body ages. NASA will take what it learns from these men, and use the information to help new astronauts. The United States space agency hopes to send humans to Mars in the 2030s.

She told VOA that weather, language and safety are a few issues that can cause problems. There are many unwritten rules. Unwritten rules are behaviors that no one talks about, but that most people understand. Fogg and VOA Learning English worked together to create a list of five important issues a new arrival to the U.S. should know about. The first one is to be on time. In the U.S., being on time is a sign of respect. If you are late by more than a few minutes, people will take your lateness as an insult. Number two: Tip in some situations. A tip is extra money. You should tip restaurant servers, taxi drivers, people who cut your hair and some hotel workers. A tip is between 15 and 20 percent of the value of service. Number three: Be careful what you say. It is best to listen to people share their opinions first and then decide about sharing your own. Do not ask about someone’s financial or marital situations. But, if a person offers you this information, it is permitted. Number four: Be aware of personal space. People in the U.S. feel uneasy when a stranger stands too close to them. Take one step back. When meeting someone for the first time, hold out your hand. And the last one is to have respect for others. This includes waiting in line for your turn. Fogg said it takes time and work, but most new arrivals can feel like they belong.

But without the Internet, Cullen says, people are falling behind. To help, Dr. Laura Hosman, a professor at California Polytechnic State University, and her students developed a special type of library. It is called SolarSPELL. It is an educational library that is powered by the sun. Dr. Hosman says she wanted to create a digital-based library that would not be ruined in extreme weather. Although it does not use the Internet, it creates a similar experience. Hosman says the library is an offline website that behaves like the Internet. It permits students to practice using the Internet on a smaller scale, Hosman says. Each SolarSPELL unit comes with a memory card or a small plug-in device that holds the educational resources. It only uses a small amount of space, and does not need power cables or electricity. Hosman and her students worked hard to find resources to put in the library. They chose materials that appeal to people who live in rural areas in the South Pacific, such as Vanuatu. The Peace Corps has used about 50 SolarSPELL units. In Naviso, about 200 students have used it.

This means that most modern coral reefs are less than 10,000 years old. As communities established themselves on the shelves, the reefs grew upwards, pacing rising sea levels. Reefs that rose too slowly could become drowned reefs. They are covered by so much water that there was insufficient light.[12] Coral reefs are found in the deep sea away from continental shelves, around oceanic islands and as atolls. The vast majority of these islands are volcanic in origin. The few exceptions have tectonic origins where plate movements have lifted the deep ocean floor on the surface. In 1842 in his first monograph, The Structure and Distribution of Coral Reefs,[13] Charles Darwin set out his theory of the formation of atoll reefs, an idea he conceived during the voyage of the Beagle. He theorized uplift and subsidence of the Earth's crust under the oceans formed the atolls.[14] Darwin’s theory sets out a sequence of three stages in atoll formation. It starts with a fringing reef forming around an extinct volcanic island as the island and ocean floor subsides. As the subsidence continues, the fringing reef becomes a barrier reef, and ultimately an atoll reef. Darwin’s theory starts with a volcanic island which becomes extinct

Now, scientists say they are developing new kinds of bandages. They have begun adding small sensors to bandages, making them more sensitive. This is the technology used in popular wearable devices, such as smart watches and fitness trackers. Scientists are also making new materials, called hydrogels. Hydrogels are similar to human skin. Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have found a way to combine these two technologies. They created a stretchy material that is similar to human tissue. The new product has wires that lie in a “z” shaped design. The wires connect to electronic sensors and stretch easily without breaking contact to the sensors. Xuanhe Zhao teaches mechanical engineering at MIT. He says the resulting product becomes a type of “smart-wound dressing.” It can react to changes in the skin around it. For example, Zhao says, if there is a sudden increase in temperature, a command will be sent. That command can control the delivery of a drug to a special location. LED lights in the bandage could warn patients and doctors about changes in the wound. Medication can quickly spread across the bandage, through tiny passages. Researchers say the new material can be used both on the skin, and inside the body. But it will be some time before these “smart bandages” reach the hospital or drug stores.

It is because a substance called mucus flows and drips from it. Just hearing the word is enough to make some people uneasy, but science tells us mucus is our friend. New research finds there are health benefits from mucus and viruses. Our bodies can produce more than a liter of mucus every day. Jeremy Barr is a professor at San Diego State University. He says that mucus is where all of your good bacteria lives and grows. When you have a virus, it can cause many illnesses. Barr and his fellow researchers studied a virus called “phage.” He says this virus, when mixed with mucus cells in the body, can help protect against bacteria. He also says that phages are a special kind of virus. They only infect and kill bacteria. They do not infect humans or animals. His research shows that the phages stick to mucus layers all throughout your body. By staying there they work to protect and control the bacteria that can live in your mucus layers. Mucus also helps protect your lungs from dust, bacteria, cigarette smoke, exhaust fumes and other forms of pollution. Jeremy Barr says he hopes the research will help start new fields of phage research. They might even prevent food-related bacteria outbreaks like E. coli. So the next time you have a cold, remember your mucus, along with the phage virus, is hard at work. Together, they can block harmful bacteria and keep you healthy.

The basketball players suggest that the women become active in public life. The group’s members say they can do this by connecting sports to health issues. All of the players are women. Saudi Arabia is one of the richest countries in the Middle East. In many ways, it is very modern in terms of public health services and transportation. But activists say the country has a long way to go on women's rights. At an event in Jeddah for disabled boys and girls, female basketball players say that women’s sports are becoming more popular. Men do not attend the games. The players wear head coverings and white uniforms that extend over their arms and legs. Players say women's rights in Saudi Arabia have come a long way in recent years. But, they say many freedoms, like the right to drive a car, still seem far away. Last year, women in Saudi Arabia voted for the first time. Twenty women were elected into local offices. Female athletes say they believe Saudi women's sports will be accepted in the same way someday. Deborah Parkwood is the head of the Jeddah United basketball team. She says there are great female athletes in Saudi Arabia. She says the girls want to train harder, play harder and compete for their country internationally. For now, players say local women's sports are having an immediate effect. They say it shows mothers the value of physical exercise for themselves and for their children.
