We are going to the game on Friday, but Saturday I'm on duty at the library all day and can't get out of it.

35-37  A conversation in a university cafeteria.
*I see you are having the fish for lunch.
*That's right. Fish sticks and tomato soup, my favorites.
*I bet they were frozen.
*The fish sticks.
*Of course they were frozen. We are hundreds of miles from the ocean. The cafeteria can't afford to fly in fresh fish.
*I just mentioned it because an anecdote Professor Chambers told in class this morning.
*Which class?
*My American social history. It's a lot of fun.
*He talked about fish sticks?
*Not exactly. Bur he did talk about frozen fish. OK, this is back in 1920, right? It's 20 degrees below zero. And this guy Clarence Birdseye's out ice-fishing.
*Where is this, Antarctica?
*No. Massachusetts I think. Anyway he catches a fish and drops it beside him on the ice and it freezes solid.
*So, later at home he thaws out the fish in a bucket of water and it's alive. Of course Birdseye is amazed. But he eventually figures it out that the fish froze so fast that no large ice crystals fomed.
*What do you mean?
*Look, usually when a plant or animal cell freezes, large ice crystals form inside and eventually tear the cell walls. That's what kills the frozen plant or animal. And also what changes the taste of something that's been frozen. But if you freeze something quickly, only very small ice crystals form. So Birdseye invented the process of quick freezing food.
*And that was the beginning of the frozen foods?

35. Why does the woman tell the man the story?
36. Why is it important to quick freeze fresh food?
37. What was Clarence Birdseye surprised to learn?

38 to 41 A lecture about the railroad industry.
At the beginning of the century the railroads were used to haul everything. Powerful railroad barons made fortunes without laving to be accountable to the public or considerable to the customers. But cars and trucks changed all of that. And by 1970, the rail industry was beset with problems. Trucks were taking all the new business. And even so the rail industry remained indifferent to customers. Also many regulations kept the rail industry from adjusting to shifting market. But in 1980, the rail industry entered the modern era when a deregulation bill was passed that allowed railroad companies to make quick adjustments to fees and practices. Companies reduced their lines by 1/3 and used fewer employees. They also took steps to minimize damage to product. And to increase their shipping capacity by stacking freight containers on railroad cars. To accommodate these taller loads, underpasses and tunnels were enlarged. The image of the rail industry has changed dramatically. Today companies are very responsive to customers and are gaining increasing market shares in the shipping industry. The railroad safety record is also strong. Freight trains have an accident rate that is only 1/3 that of the truck industry. Trains also come out ahead of the trucks on environmental grounds because they give off only 1/10 to 1/3 the pollution that is emitted by trucks. And railroading does not were out highways as trucks do.
38. What does the speaker mainly discuss? 
39. What development caused a decline in the use of railroads?
40. What is one reason why the railroad industry is gaining public support?
41. According to the speaker, what expense does trucking public support?

42 to 45 Talk in an introductory biology class.
This coffee can contains soil from my garden. And I prepared slide samples to show you that it is alive. This ordinary backyard dirt is crawling with microbes. Microbes is not a very specific term. There are hundreds of thousands of different species called microbes. What they have to common is that we can't see them with a naked eye. They are microspopic. Look at this slide. You should see some round cells. Those are yeasts. Yeasts are fermenters. And they are necessary for making bread, beer, yogurt and so forth. Now look for an irregular shape with hairs coming out of it. That's a mold. Molds are decomposers, and they are responsible for the decomposition of my compile teeth. You should also see some protozoa. Some protozoa, like the one causes malaria are harmful to people. A microbic causes disease is called a pathogen. Finally you should see a lot of squiggly lines. They are bacteria. The oldest form of life on earth. Like the other microbes, bacteria are single-cells do not have a nuclear. So I've got about a teaspoon of soil in my hand here. In that teaspoon are about ten thousand protozoa, 200 thousand mold cells, a million yeast, probably a billion bacteria.
42. What is the main purpose of the talk?
43. Why did the speaker take a soil sample from his garden?
44. What does the speaker imply about yeasts?
45. What does the speaker ask the class to look at during the talk?
