News of New York


New Yorks debt to immigrants has become almost a clich. Since Ellis Island was established as a center for new arrivals in 1892, millions of people have sought the shelter of Lady Liberty, fleeing poverty, famine, war and persecution overseas. They literally and figuratively built New York, from the skyscrapers and dockyards* to the corner delis* and garment* factories. They brought their native foods and religions, customs and clothing, which New York graciously absorbed. But those immigrants built the city inward and upward, and few ever ventured off the cramped, self-contained island of Manhattan. The new immigrants are different. They are heading not for Manhattan, but for the more remote outer boroughs* chiefly Queens, Brooklyn and the Bronx where housing is cheaper, job opportunities abound and there are plenty of derelict* neighborhoods ripe for revitalization. They couldnt have done it without immigrants. Visiting the outer boroughs today is like taking a trip round the world. In Queens, Hindus worship at a temple with carved elephant heads. West Indians play cricket in the shadow of the globe left over from the 1964 Worlds Fair. In the Bronx, Mexicans barbecue pork over open barrels in Pelham Park. Albanians gather in corner groceries to share job tips*. And in Brooklyn, Rastafarians hold raucous drumming sessions* in Prospect Park JFK airport in Queens has become the new Ellis Island, welcoming arrivals from all over the globe and whisking them off to neighborhoods ready to help them adapt. Pakistanis in the Bellerose neighborhood of Queens, for one, advertise job opportunities in local papers back home. So its easy to understand why a newly arrived family from Karachi would head straight for* Bellerose, where a mosque and a halal butcher are already established. But what makes the first person of any given background venture into unknown territory? Some unnamable blend of courage, opportunity and desperation, without which New York would never have become what Walt Whitman* called the proud and passionate mad, extravagant city! that its renowned* as today.
Susan H. GREENBERG, in Newsweek*, August 6, 2001 (adapted)

A New Kind of Warrior


1 When I got back to the reservation, my family wasnt surprised to see me. Theyd been expecting me back since the day I

left for Seattle. Theres an old Indian poet who said that Indians can reside in the city, but they can never live there. Thats as *close to truth as any of us get. Mostly I watched television. For weeks I flipped through channels, searched for answers in the game shows and soap operas. My mother would circle the want ads in red and hand the paper to me.
5 What are you going to do with the rest of your life? she asked,

Dont know, I said, and normally, for almost any other Indian in the country, that would have been a perfectly fine answer. But I was special, a former college student, a smart kid. I was one of those Indians who was supposed to make it, to rise above the rest of the reservation like *a fucking eagle or something, I was the new kind of warrior. For a few months, I didnt even look at the ads my mother circled. I just left the newspaper where she had set it down. After
10 a while though, I got tired of television and started to play basketball again. Id been a good player in high school, nearly

great, and almost played at the college I *attended for a couple of years. But Id been too *out of shape from drinking and sadness to ever be good again. Still, I liked the way the ball felt in my hands and the way my feet felt inside my shoes. At first I just *shot baskets by myself. It was selfish, and I also wanted to learn the game against anybody else. Since Id been good before and embarrassed tribal members, I knew they would take revenge on me. Forget about the cowboys 15 versus Indians business. The most intense competition on any reservation was Indians versus Indians.
A. Sherman, The Lone Ranger and Tonton Fistfight in Heaven, 1994

faire par les inscrits dans toutes les sries au Baccalaurat Read the following text and answer the questions.

I knew something was odd at home when, after we had eaten our dinner, my dad followed my mum, Carl and me into the living room to sit down. This usually did not happen. Dinner was just an interruption from my dads jobs around the house. On Sundays after church Dad was always fixing, painting, adjusting or mending. He was always, in the middle of a job, that required his full, silent concentration and a *monkey wrench. If I ever asked him what he was doing hed 5 say, fixing something, so dont come bothering me now. []
1

But this was not the only strange thing. It used to be strange for us to go into the living room at all. It was always kept best with Mums carefully embroidered runners on the sideboard and school photographs of Carl and me smiling and showing our teeth in various stages of hideous development. [] Now we were adults, however, we could go in the room any time we pleased, our parents convinced that we could no longer damage one of the glass ornaments or spill out tea on the furry 10 fireside rug. But as I walked into the room I saw six, maybe seven of my mum and dads boxes piled up in a corner. My eye was drawn to them because they were out of place and nothing was ever out of place in that room. The boxes were also full, sealed across the top, bottom and sides with wide brown tape. What are these doing here? I asked, going over to them. I turned round and watched as Dad looked at Mum, Mum looked at Carl, Carl looked at Dad and then back at Mum. But nobody looked at me.
15 Whats going on? I looked at them all one by one. Then another strange thing happened: my dad spoke first.

Sit down, Faith, he said. He began to finger the knuckles on his hand, feeling each one in turn. He used to do this when it was time to discuss the could do better bits in my school report. I began to get scared.

Devoir 03-AN01-10

No, I wont sit down. I wasnt sure why I said that but I felt like someone in a film who was about to be told something that would make them scream and pull at their hair. Unfortunately everyone else sat down and I had to stay standing. 20 Nobody spoke so I placed my hands on my hips. Dad started, Your mum and me, then he faltered. He began again, Me and your mum, and stopped. He went back to, Your mum and me, I looked at my mum who was looking at her knees and pulling imaginary hairs off her skirt, while Dad continued to stutter his various permutations. He was onto, We, when I said, What? [.] Come, Wade, Mum said, looking impatiently at my dad who had not completed a sentence.
25 Your mum and I are thinking of going back home, Dad said finally.

I thought of our old council flat where Carl and me had grown up. Although we had lived in Crouch End for years, it was the crumbling flat in Stoke Newington that I thought of as home. The blue door with the silver number twenty-three and a knocker that could be heard anywhere in the flat. With the drain pipe in the bathroom, where bathwater from the flats above could be heard rushing through. My bedroom with its council-pink walls and tiny bed where I put my discarded teeth 30 under the pillow and the tooth fairy would replace them with a sixpence. I thought in that moment that my parents had somehow lost all their money. That Mum was having to leave her job as a district nurse, the old folk cured, the district cutting back. That Dads business which he had built up so carefully with sixteen-hour days, including Saturdays and Sundays, and evenings spent writing invoices in his best hand writing in a little blue book had after all gone bust. I thought they were having to move out of the house. The houses in a proper street 35 that they were so proud of that they sent pictures of it to relatives with invitations to come and stay. You going back to the flat? I asked. Carl sniggered and I knew I was wrong. No, Faith, Mum said. Were thinking of going home to Jamaica. And my reaction was, For a holiday. Fantastic! How long for?
40 Not for a holiday, Faith, Dad said hesitantly. Your mum and me are thinking He held up his hand, Only thinking,

mind, of going back there to live. To get a little place and live.

Devoir 03 oral-AN01-10

Then why cry? Im crying because Im happy. Anything wrong with that? No, I said, but there was, because happy people did not seem to cry like she did. Mommys tears seemed to come from somewhere else, a place far away, a place inside her that she never let any of us children visit, and even as a boy I felt there was pain behind them. I thought it was because she wanted to be black like everyone else in church, because maybe God liked black people better, and one afternoon on the way home from church I asked her whether God was black or white.

The Vietnam War Memorial in Washington D.C. has the list of names of the 58,169 US soldiers who died in Vietnam. It is also named The Healing Wall.
1 Then I began to move my hands over the Wall

Over names I didnt know, Slow at first, and then faster, almost frantically At first not knowing why 5 But then knowing I was looking for one name, I was looking for the one groove my hands would know The best, The one that would confirm what I always knew 10 To be true but was afraid to admit, A name that wasnt there but should have been Mine. It was that realization, that surprise, When it all rushed in, the horribleness too horrible to 15 Remember Too awful to forget When it all came back to me overwhelming me, Forcing me to face what I could not accept The source of my guilt, my one great sin 20 I had lived, I had survived. I came back I left the Wall. I ascended out of that deep, dark hole a different person. Tired, emotionally exhausted, I stood there looking back where I had been. 25 I knew my pain had not magically left me I carry it with me today but I carry it, it no longer Carries me. This was the healing I could not find before The Wall told me my name was not there 30 And said go live your life, you do not belong here. And so I do live my live now, beyond the Wall.

I want some more... Oliver Twist is an orphan and is poor. He now lives in the *workhouse with other boys. They are not given enough food and it is Olivers lot to ask for more *gruel that evening.
1

... The gruel disappeared; the boys whispered each other, and winked at Oliver; while his next neighbours nudged him. Child as he was, he was desperate with hunger, and reckless with misery. He rose from the table, and advancing to the master, basin and spoon in hand, said, somewhat alarmed at his own temerity: Please, sir, I want some more.

The master was a fat, healthy man; but he turned very pale. He gazed in stupefied astonishment on the small rebel for some seconds, and then clung for support to the copper. The assistants were paralysed with wonder; the boys with fear. What! said the master at length, in a faint voice. Please, sir, replied Oliver, I want some more.

10

The *board were sitting in solemn conclave, when *Mr. Bumble rushed into the room in great excitement, and addressing the gentleman in the high chair, said : Mr. Limbkins, I beg your pardon, sir! Oliver Twist has asked for more! There was a general start. Horror was depicted on every countenance. For more! said Mr. Limbkins. Compose yourself, Bumble, and answer me distinctly. Do I understand that he asked for more, after he had eaten the supper allotted by the *dietary?

15

He did, sir, replied Bumble. That boy will be hung, said the gentleman in the white waistcoat. I know that boy will be hung. Nobody controverted the prophetic gentlemans opinion. An animated discussion took place. Oliver was ordered into instant *confinement; and a *bill was next morning pasted on the outside of the gate, offering a reward of five pounds to anybody who would take Oliver Twist off the hands of the parish. In other words, five pounds and Oliver Twist were offered to any man or woman who wanted an apprentice to any trade, business, or calling.
Charles Dickens, Oliver Twist (1837) (abridged)

The Clinging Woman


The girl was hanging by her hands from the railings of a balcony. The balcony was on the twelfth floor of the high-rise block next to his. His flat was on the ninth floor and he had to look up to see her. It was half-past six in the morning. He had been awakened by the sound of an aircraft flying dangerously low overhead and had got out of bed to look. His sleepy gaze, descending from the blue sky which was empty of clouds, empty of anything but the bright vanishing arrow of the aircraft, alighted at first with disbelief on the hanging figure. He really thought he must be dreaming, for this sunrise time was the hour for dreams. Then, when he knew he wasnt, he decided it must be a stunt. This was to be a scene in a film. There were cameramen down there, a whole film unit, and all the correct safety precautions had been taken. Probably the girl wasnt even a real girl but a dummy. He opened the window and looked down. The car park, paved courts, grass spaces between the blocks, all were deserted. On the balcony rail one of the dummys hands moved, clutching its anchorage more tightly, more desperately. He had to believe then what was obviously happening unbelievable only because melodrama, though a frequent constituent of real life, always is. The girl was trying to kill herself. She had lost her nerve and now was trying to stay alive. All these thoughts and conclusions of his occupied about thirty seconds. Then he acted. He picked up the phone and dialled the emergency number for the police.

The arrival of the police cars and the ultimate rescue of the girl became the focus of gossip and speculation for the tenants of the two blocks. Someone found out that it was he who had alerted the police and he became an unwilling hero. He was a modest, quiet young man, and, disliking this limelight, was relieved when the talk began to die away, when the novelty of it wore off, and he was able to enter and leave his flat without being pointed at as a kind of St. George and sometimes congratulated. About a fortnight after that morning of melodrama, he was getting ready to go to the theatre, just putting on his overcoat, when the doorbell rang. He didnt recognize the girl who stood outside. He had never seen her face. She said, Im Lynda Simpson. You saved my life. Ive come to thank you. His embarrassment was acute. You shouldnt have, he said with a nervous smile. You really shouldnt. Thats not necessary. I only did what anyone would have done.

She was calm and tranquil, not at all his idea of a failed suicide. But no one else did, she said. Wont you come in? Have a drink or something? Oh, no, I couldnt think of it. I can see youre just going out. I only wanted to say thank you very, very much. It was nothing. Nothing to save someones life? Ill always be grateful to you.

30

He wished she would either come in or go away. If this went on much longer the people in the other two flats on his floor would hear, would come out, and another of those bravest-deeds-of-the-year committee meetings would be convened. Nothing at all, he said desperately. Really, Ive almost forgotten it.

Chapter one (an extract) 1 Okonkwo was well known throughout the nine villages and even beyond. His *fame rested on solid personal achievements. As a young man of eighteen he had brought honour to his village by throwing Amalinze the Cat. Amalinze was the great *wrestler who for seven years was unbeaten, from Umuofia to Mbaino. He was called the Cat because his back would never touch the earth. It was this man that Okonkwo threw in a fight which the old men agreed was one of the fiercest 5 since the *founder of their town engaged a spirit of the wild for seven days and seven nights. The drums beat and the flutes sang and the spectators held their breath. Amalinze was a wily craftsman, but Okonkwo was as slippery as a fish in water. Every nerve and every muscle stood out on their arms, on their backs, on their thighs, and one almost heard them stretching to breaking point. In the end Okonkwo threw the Cat. That was many years ago, twenty years or more, and during this time, Okonkwos fame had grown like a bush-fire in the
10 *harmattan. He was tall and huge, and his bushy eyebrows and wide nose gave him a very severe look. He breathed heavily,

and it was said that, when he slept, his wives and children in their out-houses could hear him breathe. When he walked, his heels hardly touched the ground and he seemed to walk on springs, as if he was going to *pounce on somebody. And he did pounce on people quite often. He had a slight *stammer and whenever he was angry and could not get his words out quickly enough, he would use his *fists. He had no patience with unsuccessful men. He had no patience with his father.
15 Unoka, for that was his fathers name, had died ten years ago. In his day he was lazy and improvident and was quite

incapable of thinking about tomorrow. If any money came his way, and it seldom did, he immediately bought gourds and palm-wine, called round his neighbours and made merry. He always said that whenever he saw a dead mans mouth he saw the folly of not eating what one had in ones lifetime. Unoka was, of course, a *debtor, and he owed every neighbour some money, from a few *cowries to quite substantial amounts
Chinua Achebe, Things Fall Apart, 1958

TEXT A

(Henry has just come home from school),


Henry, she gasped, youve got to help me What! Whats the matter? Was the FBI upstairs? Was she bleeding internally? Thered been gunfire! We were going to scream down the street in an ambulance while she told me her dying wish, while she expired in my arms. What!

She was doing the difficult job of holding still, so that the skin on her hands, those lily-white ones, were stretched to the thinnest translucence around my big wrists. I cant, she said, get-on-line. I looked hard and I looked long into those beseeching blue eyes of hers. Right then there was nothing not jewels or a cruise ship or money () that she wanted more than the machinery to be up and running. I could see this in her fierce little pupils. Oh, no! I finally whispered. Oh, God!

What? What do you think it is? It hadnt taken me much time, more than a second really, to understand the possibilities in the situation. () Ive Ive got to get on, she said. Ive just, just got to get on. Okay, I said. Sure. I set my backpack on the floor, squatted, took out a pencil, in case I needed to do some complicated algorithms to get the dolly1 in working order. Computations that might take, oh, a week or two. I ambled2 up the stairs after her, sat in the office chair, adjusted the setting for height and back support. Stood and fixed my belt. Sat down. Made a fine tuning with the smaller back knob3 under the chair. Tweaked the larger one ()

She would have liked to scream at me. I could feel the urgency, the desperation, in the way she clutched the back of my chair and breathed as if she were running and running and not simply standing still. ()

Up in the office, when she could no longer control herself over the computers malfunction, when she stared to tremble, and when her breathing down my neck became irregular. I said, Wait a minute. Lets try something. I made elaborate motions, pressing the various keys and finally hitting the one under the desk that shut the machine down. Hold the phone, I said, stating it up again. Here we go. My mother sank into a hard wooden chair, put her hands into her face, and said, Oh Jesus. Thank you!

TEXT B
1 A generational difference shows up in the emergence of the family tech guru, who these days is far more likely to be a

teenager than the father of the house. A Carnegie Mellon study of home computer use found that those with the least seniority claimed the most authority, with calls to technical support1 (generally a sign of the household power user) coming predominantly from children, not adults. Southwest Airlines recently ran a television ad showing a self-important 5 boomer2 dictating his travel requirements to an unseen associate. The camera pulls back to show his seven-year-old son, who is typing it all into a website. Children have always been more expert than their parents at something, but usually a game or a fad, not the eras most important business tool. For the first time in history, children are more comfortable, knowledgeable and literate than their parents about an innovation central to society, says Mr Tapscott (the author of Growing up Digital). For kids today, 10 technology is the defining event of their generation, much as wars or depression were for previous generations. Television opened the boomers eyes to the global village, but the Internet goes one better. It operates 24 hours a day and it does not just offer you a window on the world, but a way of playing a part wherever you are.
Know the future. The Economist Newspaper Limited, London, December 23rd 2000.

Vocabulary help: 1calls to technical support = phone calls to hotlines to get help about your computer 2a boomer = a baby boomer, a person born in the 1950s at the time of the baby-boom
