Donds Faux Art
I

Daniele Dond is often called the King of Copies. That is because he paints copies of paintings by famous
artists. The originals of these paintings hang in the worlds most famous art museums and are extremely
valuable. Donds copies are obviously much less valuable than the originals, yet many people claim that they are
just as good. In fact, it is often difficult to see the difference between Donds copies and the original paintings.

II

Dond is responsible for a new trend in the art world known as faux art. It aims to make great masterpieces
available to people at prices that they can afford. Unlike forgery, faux art is not created in order to deceive
people. Copy masters like Dond do not attempt to fool people into thinking that the copies are the original
paintings. Instead they make it very clear that their paintings are legal fakes.

III

Dond was first attracted to the idea of faux art after he decided to sell a collection of his family paintings. To his
dismay, many of the paintings turned out to be forgeries. He decided to discover who had deceived his family.
Surprisingly, when Dond finally found the forger, Sergio Uggi, he didnt hand him over to the police. Instead, he
offered Uggi the chance to work for him. Dond wanted Uggi to stop creating fakes for dishonest gallery owners
who were trying to cheat collectors. Dond encouraged Uggi to copy valuable masterpieces in order to make
them accessible to the general public. Uggi agreed and became the first legal artist in Donds faux art
movement.

IV

Today, Dond works with over 20 copy masters. He displays their work in exhibitions in major cities all over the
world. The paintings are appreciated by art lovers and collectors alike.

Dond began the faux art movement in an attempt to put an end to the kind of injustice that had been done to
his family. He wanted to stop artists from providing dishonest art dealers with high quality fakes that could be
used to deceive people. He could not have imagined that faux art would turn out to be one of the biggest and
most popular art movements in the world.

Most commercial airlines are fairly similar in appearance and service. In Business Class, food may be tastier, seats
wider and attention more personal, but otherwise there is little variation. However, one new company has
revolutionised commercial air travel.

II

Until 2009, pet owners who needed to fly with their pets had to place the animals under their seat or send them as
cargo along with their suitcases. Dan Wiesel and Alysa Binder, owners of a dog called Zoe, found this unacceptable,
and as a result, they set up Pet Airways. Established in 2009 for pets only, Pet Airways flies its passengers to several
destinations within the United States. It uses planes that have been specially modified to accommodate animal
carriers in a temperature-controlled and well-lit cabin. Animals dogs, cats and some smaller animals are
monitored by trained attendants every fifteen minutes during the flight, and given bathroom breaks when
necessary.

III

Pet Airways requests information on the breed, height and weight of the pet when reservations are being made, so
that an appropriately-sized carrier can be prepared. It also requires proof of the animals good health and
vaccinations. At least one hour before the flight, pets must be taken to the check-in desk with their luggage one
small bag is allowed. And while owners may supply a towel or T-shirt with their scent to comfort their pet, the
airline prohibits tranquillisers, as these may be dangerous to the animals health. Similarly, owners are advised not
to feed pets for four hours before a flight, and only water is offered on board. During the journey, owners can track
their animals location, which is regularly posted online. Pets may be picked up in the airlines lounge 30 minutes
after landing.

IV

The cost of a journey varies according to length and other variables, but a typical one-way ticket is $250, which
compares favourably with the approximately $100 that other airlines take to fly animals in less comfortable
conditions. This payment includes insurance, and pets may even join a travel scheme offering special discounts and
free air miles.

Pet Airways has been well received not only by pets and their owners, but also by airline executives and vets, who
mention the comfort and safety provided for the animals. Some also point out the reduction in travel-related
stress that of the pets and their owners!

1. Passengers on the new airline .


a. may fly to any destination worldwide
b. include all animals who need to travel
c. are placed in special carriers for the flight
2. Animals on Pet Airways flights .
a. should be checked in an hour before the flight

Extreme Cellists
I

Most string musicians are found in the orchestra at concert halls; not many cellists play while exploring cities or
hiking through the countryside, but this is exactly what the Extreme Cellists do. This British trio claims to bring
together extreme sport and performance art usually cello music played outdoors to raise money and
awareness for various charities.

II

All the group members are classically-trained musicians. Clare Wallace teaches music and sings. James Rees also
teaches, while Jeremy Dawson works as a statistician in addition to singing in a cathedral choir. Not surprisingly,
their website also lists the soccer teams they support!

III

At their first appearance on Original Extreme Cello Day in 2003, the cellists climbed up a mountain to give their
first performance, then down into a cave to deliver their second. Later, they arrived in the city of Sheffield and
climbed up to the roof of a building for the third concert; they performed the fourth on a station platform, the
fifth in a forest, and then played their last concert in a greenhouse in a city park. This is all even harder than it
sounds because the musicians had to carry their cellos, each weighing about 13.5 kilograms, from venue to
venue.

IV

Other appearances followed quickly, giving the group a chance to play various classical works, as well as modern
pieces by the Beatles and other contemporary musicians. The more challenging of their outings included trekking
over 300 kilometres coast to coast, climbing the four highest mountains in the United Kingdom and performing
on the top of each to raise money for the Mountain Rescue charity. The group has also played at all 42 Anglican
cathedrals in England, often on the roof, and on every street appearing on the London Monopoly board.

Who knows what these players will do next? Whatever it is, it will surely be a good way to raise money for
worthy causes, pleasing listeners at the same time.

Choose the correct answer.

1. On the Original Extreme Cello Day, the trio .


a. gave a total of five concerts in all
b. stayed in Sheffield for all the concerts
c. did not play inside any concert hall
2. The writer .
a. expresses no opinion about the group
b. admires the Extreme Cellists activities

Turn the Music Down!
I

According to a recent study, the number of teenagers with hearing loss has jumped 33 per cent since 1994. Many
researchers claim that this widespread hearing loss amongst teenagers has been caused by their constant
exposure to music played through headphones. Whereas in the past, teenagers used to listen to music at high
volumes from stereo systems, todays teenagers generally listen to music from their iPods and MP3 players via
headphones. Although this means that they no longer disturb the people around them with their music, it also
means that the high volumes are being directed straight into their ears.

II

In theory, people who listen to music through headphones can enjoy their music in peace and dont have to hear
any other outside noise at the same time. Yet in practice, headphones dont always work so well and listeners
often find that they can still hear some of the noise they wanted to cancel out. As a result, they tend to gradually
increase the volume in an attempt to get rid of the unwanted background noise. This is what causes permanent
damage to their hearing.

III

Experts advise that anyone who wants to protect their hearing should begin by simply turning down the volume.
In addition, they recommend buying some good-quality headphones. These headphones produce a clear sound
which makes it less necessary for listeners to increase the volume in order to remove interference from the
outside world.

IV

Yet hearing loss may not be the most serious consequence of headphone use. Some people claim that many
more road accidents are caused as a result of cyclists or pedestrians listening to music through headphones. They
argue that an awareness of your surroundings is extremely important in terms of road safety and that
headphone use dramatically reduces this awareness. It is true that thanks to headphones, people can listen to
music any time and everywhere. Yet headphone use may ultimately result not only in impaired hearing, but also
in an increased number of road accidents. Perhaps the price is too high to pay.

Cyber Seniors
I

In the past, many older people did not use computers. Yet in recent years, an increasing number of older people
in the United States have begun to use computer technology. In fact, seniors are one of the fastest-growing
groups of Internet users in that country. Many of these seniors are taking computer classes that are provided by
community centres around the USA.

II

Some seniors are interested in learning about computers because they want to use e-mail to keep in touch with
their loved ones who live far away. Others wish to learn how to shop online so that they can stay independent for
longer.

III

Yet mastering computer skills at a later stage of life is not always simple. Many seniors are afraid of computers
and think they are too old to learn. In addition, as people age they often lose some of their ability to solve
problems and to process new information. This makes it much more difficult for them to learn new things.
Finally, many seniors have physical problems which make computer use more challenging.

IV

Teachers of elderly students must be specially trained. They must be made aware of seniors physical problems
and taught to sympathise with them. Many training programmes include sensitivity training, where students
practise using computers wearing dirty sunglasses, with cotton balls in their ears and with two of their fingers
taped together. Interestingly, many of the participants in these training programmes are teenagers. These teens
claim that they benefit tremendously from the experience. They say that they get a lot of satisfaction from the
real improvements they make in the older peoples lives.

And the teens are not the only ones who benefit. It appears that teenagers are particularly good at teaching
computer skills to the elderly and find it easy to motivate their senior students. This may be because teens are
very comfortable with computer technology and enjoy using it. It may also simply be because teens and old
people get along well. Whatever the reason, it would seem that if we wish to help the older generation master
technology, its a good idea to get teenagers to do the job.

Choose the correct answer. (2 x 3 = 6 points)

1. Seniors may have difficulty mastering computer technology because they ... .
a.
b.
c.
d.

do not believe they are capable of learning


dont enjoy using it
dont get along with their teachers
are no longer able to process information

2. Sensitivity training helps ... .
