Creating conditions suitable for growth is a serious challenge, and some think the crop yield would be too low to make economic sense.

My biggest reservation is that the basic premise is flawed. We already know how to increase food production from existing land resources, particularly in areas with surplus land such as sub-saharan Africa. It s just that we do it incredibly badly at the moment, says Rob Brook, a rural development researcher at the University of Wales in Bangor. This is a rich person s pipe dream. F Yet there is strong support elsewhere. Luc Mougeout, an advocate of urban agriculture at Canada s International Development Research Centre, says the vertical farm is not only possible, but will happen within this generation.

It would collect at one site a diversity of elements already at work in some form or another around the world, he says. Despommier has the backing of his university as well as venture capitalists from the Middle East, China and the Netherlands. If the vertical farming vision becomes a reality, we could find ourselves once again enjoying fresh fruit and vegetables sourced from just around the corner, except these might come from the 45th floor.

In it was bought from the Covernment by two Christian church groups and since then it has expanded enormously, to include a day school as well as boarders residential students in Years Although pupils of the College's total number are Aboriginal students, drawn mainly from isolated communities across the Northern Territory, Kormilda also has a waiting list of non-Aboriginal students.

With a current enrolment of , student numbers are expected to grow to by Section B Central to the mission of the school is the encouragement of individual excellence, which has resulted in programs designed especially for the student population.

Specialist support programs allow traditional Aboriginal students, who are often second language users, to understand and succeed in the mainstream curriculum. Section C To provide appropriate pastoral carc, as well as a suitable academic structure, three distinct sub-schools have been established. For Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students in Years who are of secondary school age but have difficulties reading and writing.

For Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students who are of secondary school age and operating at secondary school year levels who need specific second language literacy and numeracy support. For multi-cultural Years students. Students remain in their sub-schools for classes in the main subject areas of English, Maths, Social Education and Science. This arrangement takes into account both diverse levels of literacy and the styles of learning and cultural understandings appropriate to traditional Aboriginal second-language users.

Section D To aid the development of the Aboriginal Education program, a specialist curriculum Support Unit has been set up. Onc of its functions is to re-package school courses so that they can be taught in ways that suit the students. The education program offered to Aboriginal students uses an approach which begins with the students' own experiences and gradually builds bi-cultural understanding.

In onc course, "Introducing Western European Culture Through Traditional Story-Telling", students are helped to build a common base for approaching the English literature curriculum. Drawing on the oral culture of traditional Aboriginal communities, they are introduced to traditional stories of other cultures, both oral and written. In a foundational Year 10 course, "Theory of Learning", concepts from Aboriginal culture are placed side by side with European concepts so that students can use their own knowledge base to help bridge the cultural divide.

Another project of the Support Unit has been the publication of several books, the most popular, Kormilda Capers. One of the stories in the book, "The Bulman Mob hits the Big Smoke", recounts the adventures of Kormilda pupils on their first visit to Sydney, Canberra and the snow country.

Focussing on experiences which have directly affected the lives of students at the College, and on ideas and issues which are of immediate interest to Aboriginal students, Korll1ilda Capers has earned enthusiastic support within and outside the school.

Choose the subject from the list below and write its name in box 31 your answer sheet. Can you imagine a world without zippers to fasten clothing? Have you ever wondered about the layout of the keyboard of a typewriter, which we see every day on the computer?

These are just two of the many inventions which have made our lives easier. Maybe that's why we don't think about them very much! The Zipper Whatever did we do before the invention of the zipper?

Although the inventor claimed that it was a reliable fastening for clothing. The Chicago zipper sprang open without warning, or jammed shut, and it swiftly lost popularity. Twenty years later a Swedish-born engineer called Sundback solved the problem. He attached tiny cups to the backs of the interlocking teeth, and this meant that the teeth could be enmeshed more firmly and reliably. At first zippers were made of metal.

They were heavy, and if they got stuck it was difficult to free them. Then came nylon zippers which were lighter and easier to use, and had smaller teeth. The fashion industry liked the new zippers far better because they did not distort the line of the garment or weigh down light fabrics. They were also easier for the machjnists to fit into the garment. Meanwhile a new fastening agent made its appearance at the end of the twentieth century: Velcro is another product made from nylon.

Nylon is a very tough synthetic fibre first developed in the , and bearing a name to remind the hearer of the two places where it was developed: Velcro is made with very small nylon hooks on one side of the fastening which catch tiny looped whiskers on the other side of the fastening.

It is strong and durable. Ve1cro is used on clothing, luggage and footwear. It is quick and easy to fasten and unfasten, and has taken a large part of the zipper's share of the market. It is also used in ways a zipper cannot be used - for instance as an easily changed fastening on plaster casts, and to hold furnishing fabrics in position. The Typewriter and the Keyboard The keyboard of the modern typewriter is laid out in a most odd fashion.

The answer is simple: But first, let's consider the history of the typewriter itself. Shales invented the first of the modern typewriters, although there had been patents for typewriter-like machines as early as , when Queen Anne of England granted a patent to a man called Henry Mill for a machine which would make marks on paper "so neat and exact as not to be distinguished from print". In , across the Atlantic in Detroit USA, William Austin Burt took out a patent on a typewriter-like machine, four years before the French inventor Xavier Projean produced his machine designed to record words at a speed comparable to someone writing with a pen.

So the typewriter was not a new idea, although there had not been a successful realisation of the idea before Christopher Shales' machine. His typewriter became very popular, and soon people learned to type very quickly - so quickly, in fact, that the keys became tangled. On manual typewriters the characters were set on the end of bars which rose to strike the paper when the key was pressed.

In the first models, the keys were set alphabetically. When a quick typist tapped out a word like federal, it was very likely the adjacent e and d keys would become entangled. Shales therefore set about finding ways to slow the typist down. He looked for the letters which were most often used in English, and then placed them far away from each other.

For instance, q and ll, which are almost always used together in English, are separated by five intervening letters. The plan worked, and the typist was slowed down a little. When computers came into use in the latter part of the twentieth century it was suggested that the keyboard should be rationalised. After all, there was no longer any need to avoid clashing manual typewriter keys.

One new board included keys which produced letters which frequently occur together in English, like ing and th and ed, so the word thing would take two strokes to write instead of five. Although this made perfect sense, people found it very hard to learn to use a new keyboard, and the idea was dropped. Tt is unlikely that the keyboard will ever be changed: It is very likely that we will soon have machines which take dictation as wc speak to them, and the keyboard will be used for corrections.

Questions From the information in the reading passage, classify the following events as occurring: Sundback's zipper The first zipper was successful as a fastener. Nylon was used a lot during the Second World War, The first typewriter's keyboard was different to the modern keyboard. The keys of Shales' first machine were likely to jam. New computers will use the rationalised keyboard.
