There aren't very [3.1.] ... good reasons to watch this film. Yes, it has [3.2.] ... beautiful people, but it has [3.3.] ... bad story, and how [3.4.] ... time does a film need for fast cars and explosions?
[6.1.] ... are things? I'm emailing you from a petrol station. The petrol, or what Americans call [6.2.] ... , is really cheap here. I can fill the car for about $20 and drive across California! The [6.3.] ... are like our motorways but a lot [6.4.] ... and ten times longer. I'm driving a big American car - it's so big that yesterday, I couldn't drive it out of the parking [6.5.] ... (that's car park for you!).
It's Mum's birthday next week. I think she'd like a [6.6.] ... camera. Are they expensive? In the United States everything is so cheap compared with the UK. I found trainers for about £5 at a shop called The Big Shoe [6.7.] ... , so I bought two pairs. And I also got some gold [6.8.] ... heels. I can't walk in them but they look wonderful!
[6.9.] ... for now.
This island in the North Atlantic is larger than England and Wales, but few people live here – only about 290,000, with over half in the capital city, Reykjavik. Iceland has been independent from Denmark since 1944 and the capital comes alive on Independence Day (June 16) when Reykjavik feels more crowded than London.
But people don’t usually visit Iceland for the city life. This is a country of amazing landscapes – blue lakes and lagoons, fast rivers and waterfalls, mountains and volcanoes that erupt frequently. Mount Hekla, in the south of the country, has erupted sixteen times in the last 1,000 years, and, in one of the most violent eruptions of recent times, the volcano on the island of Heimaey almost destroyed the town in 1973.
I [9.1.] … before how much I liked one brand of cream cheese more than any other. But apparently my brain does! That was the conclusion of Dr Larry Farwell. He [9.2.] … electrodes on my head and, while I was looking at adverts of cheese, he [9.3.] … the ‘response’ of my brain. If he [9.4.] … me a special brand of cream cheese, my brain would ‘spike’.
This kind of information can be extremely useful for advertisers. For example, if you wanted to know what packaging attracts which type of customer, this test [9.5.] … you.
The good news for companies is that ‘neuromarketing’ [9.6.] … more and more available in the future. Advertising companies think it will be [9.7.] … than traditional market research. As one advertiser told me, ‘If you interview consumers, they [9.8.] … able to say why they buy a brand. So the results can be misleading. On the other hand, if you could get inside their brain, then it would be the [9.9.] … form of market research in the world!’
It would also be a [9.10.] … cheaper. The advertising industry currently spends around $10 billion a year on finding out if adverts are effective. Dr Farwell’s test could reduce that bill. But not everyone is [9.11.] … happy as the advertisers. Critics say that reading our brains is unethical and unsafe.
Brad Pitt is currently one of the world’s biggest international [11.1.] … . Constantly chased by the [11.2.] … , he lives a life in which he is permanently in the limelight. But although acting has brought Pitt wealth and fame, it seems that his true passion is architecture.
His interest began in 2001 when he [11.3.] … a [11.4.] … mansion in Beverly Hills. He asked Frank Gehry, the Canadian architect who designed the [11.5.] … Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, to help him with the design and the two became good friends.
Now Gehry has received a [11.6.] … to build a $250 million seafront development in the English seaside town of Hove, and he has asked Pitt to help him with the project. This [11.7.] … between a film star and a famous architect is a new development in the world of design. The drawings produced so far show a very [11.8.] … structure covered in metal. Gehry’s designs are always [11.9.] … and [11.10.] … , and this scheme may not be popular with local residents who are more familiar with the [11.11.] … Victorian architecture of the area. But there are rumours that Pitt may buy one of the apartments in the development, which might well [11.12.] … the objections of the locals.
