workers to back President Hugo Chavez or leave their jobs. The opposition released an amateur video of Rafael Ramirez, also head of the state oil company PDVSA, making the remarks to top executives. The opposition says the government is illegally mobilising workers to secure Mr. Chavez's re-election on 3 December. Mr. Chavez defended Mr. Ramirez and said workers should back the "revolution". The president, a key critic of the United States who is widely expected to win the election, said: "Of course PDVSA is revolutionary. Its workers are with this revolution, and those who aren't should go somewhere else. Go to Miami." Mr. Chavez applauded his minister's words by saying he should make the same speech to oil workers 100 times a day. The video was presented by supporters of the main opposition candidate, Manuel Rosales. Opposition media outlets have been repeating the 14-minute video over and over again. It shows Mr. Ramirez standing at a podium and addressing a crowd of managers. He can be heard saying that the state oil company is " red from top to bottom" - in reference to the colour red used by President Chavez's supporters. "Here, we are backing Chavez, who is our leader, who is the leader of this revolution, and we will do everything we have to do to support our president," Mr. Ramirez adds. "Those who do not feel comfortable with that orientation, should give their jobs to a Bolivarian a Chavez supporter."

Bill Gates calls time on career at Microsoft Bill Gates on Thursday announced his intention to leave his full-time role at Microsoft, drawing the curtain on a controversial business career that more than any other shaped the first half-century of the information age and turned him into the world's richest man. Mr. Gates, a Harvard drop-out who founded Microsoft along with Paul Allen more than 30 years ago, said he would switch his attention instead to philanthropy, continuing the work on global health and education that has come to absorb his time. The Microsoft chairman will hand over his responsibility for its software strategy immediately and reduce his involvement in the company progressively during the two-year transition period. He will give up all day-to-day activities by July 2008. Mr. Gates said he hoped to stay as chairman of what is the world's biggest software company "for the rest of my life", and that the directors had supported this idea. "I don't see a time in the future when I won't be the chairman of the company", he said. Mr. Gates said that the reshuffle would not hamper Microsoft, adding: "The world has had a tendency to focus a disproportionate amount of attention on me." Of his change in direction at the age of 50, he added: "My announcement is not a retirement - it's a reordering of my priorities."

Texto I A text familiar to many, George Orwell's classic satire has cropped up on school reading lists ever since the year of its creation. Few readers can fail to be touched by the tragedy within, by its wonderful synthesis of unthreatening symbolism and incisive criticism. This familiarity is convenient since, as an adaptation, "Animal Farm" spends too little time on the details of time and place. Instead, directors Joy Batchelor and John Halas thrust us directly into the depression that is Manor Farm, briefly explaining the situation with pictures and narration by Gordon Heath. (...) Sadly, Batchelor and Halas make it vital to have read Orwell's biting satire on Soviet history before viewing "Animal Farm", just to know what's been left out. As it is, the film grasps the superficial aspects of Orwell's allegoric fable without his deeper message. In missing so badly, we're left with an impressive attempt that never matches up to its birthright. Texto II Power corrupts, but absolute power corrupts absolutely - and this is vividly and eloquently proved in Orwell's short novel. "Animal Farm" is a simple fable of great symbolic value, and as Orwell himself explained: "It is the history of a revolution that went wrong". The novel can be seen as the historical analysis of the causes of the failure of communism, or as a mere fairy-tale; in any case it tells a good story that aims to prove that human nature and diversity prevent people from being equal and happy, or at least equally happy. (...) In "Animal Farm", Orwell describes how power turned the pigs from simple "comrades" to ruthless dictators who managed to walk on two legs, and carry whips. The story may be seen as an analysis of the Soviet regime, or as a warning against political power games of an absolute nature and totalitarianism in general. For this reason, the story ends with a hairraising warning to all humankind: "The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again: but already it was impossible to say which was which". Texto III When the farm's prize-winning pig, Old Major, calls a meeting of all the animals of Manor Farm, he tells them that he has had a dream in which mankind is gone, and animals are free to live in peace and harmony. (...) . When Old Major dies, (...) Snowball and Napoleon assume command, and turn his dream into a full fledged philosophy. One night, the starved animals suddenly revolt and drive the farmer Mr. Jones, his wife, and his pet raven off the farm and take control. The farm is renamed "Animal Farm" as the animals work towards a future utopia. The Seven Commandments of the new philosophy of Animalism are written on the wall of a barn for all to read, the seventh and most important of which is that "all animals are equal" (...). Many years pass, and the pigs learn to walk upright, carry whips, and wear clothes. The Seven Commandments are reduced to a single phrase: "All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others." Napoleon holds a dinner party for the pigs, and the humans of the area (in the adjacent Foxwood Farm run by Mr. Pilkington), who congratulate Napoleon on having the most hard working animals in the country on the least feed. Napoleon announces his alliance with the humans against the labouring classes of both "worlds". The animals discover this when they overhear Napoleon's conversations and

The diminishing of Brazil May 11th 2006 / BRASÍLIA From The Economist
Brazil's Lula da Silva has been humiliated by Venezuela's Hugo Chávez. Many Brazilians complain that their president, Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, is being turned into an irrelevant bystander in his own backyard by Hugo Chávez, Venezuela's oil-rich populist leader. The immediate uproar was prompted on May 1st by the decision by Evo Morales, Bolivia's socialist president, to order the nationalisation of his country's oil and gas industry. He was fulfilling a campaign promise. But he was advised, and apparently inspired, by Mr. Chávez. The chief victim of his decision was Brazil. Petrobras was the largest investor there. Brazil may now have to pay up to 60% more for the gas. Lula's response looked feeble. Instead of asserting Brazil's contractual rights, he held a meeting not just with the Bolivian leader and Argentina's president, Néstor Kirchner, but also with Mr. Chávez on May 4th. Lula said that Bolivia was acting within its rights. To critics of the Lula government, Brazil's meekness unmasked the confusion at the heart of its foreign policy. In making alliances, they claim, it has put presumed ideological affinity above national interest. […] Not so long ago in Brazil, its leaders had a vision of regional integration based on the outspoken defence of democracy, respect for treaties and on linking Mercosur to the world through, for example, a free-trade pact with the EU. It is hard not to conclude that this vision is being sacrificed to a puerile impulse to embrace those who peddle the populist rhetoric of "antiimperialism". For that, Brazilians may soon pay a price. 1. Analyse the following sentences according to the text. a. ( V ) According to the article, the president of Brazil has been affronted by Hugo Chávez. b. ( F ) Many Brazilians think that Lula took the right decision: he did not allow Hugo Chávez to interfere in matters that can affect Brazil. c. ( V ) Before he was elected, Evo Morales promised to nationalize Bolivia's oil and gas industry. d. ( V ) Most probably Evo Morales followed Hugo Chávez's advice. e. ( F ) As a consequence of Evo Morales's decision, Brazil will not have to invest so much for the gas it consumes. 2. Continue analysing the following sentences according to the text. a. ( V ) Even though Brazil had contractual rights, Mr. Lula was too weak to defend our country; he said that Bolivia was acting within its prerogatives. b. ( V ) The submission of the Lula government reveals that its foreign policy is not clear. c. ( V ) According to critics, ideological affinity has prevailed over national interest. d. ( V ) It seems that defense of democracy and respect for agreements have been neglected. e. ( F ) Brazil will never regret for defending the populist discourse of "anti-imperialism". 3. Analyse the following sentences considering grammar.

In 1620 one of the first British settlements in America was established in Massachusetts. These settlers, known as Pilgrims, had come to America to freely practise their religion. They arrived in November, when it was too late to plant crops. Although many people died, the Pilgrim settlement survived the winter because of help from Indians who lived nearby. The Indians taught the Pilgrims about corn and showed them where to fish. The next November, after the crops were harvested, the Pilgrims gave thanks to God at a feast to which they invited the Indians. Every year, Americans celebrate Thanksgiving. Families and friends get together for a big feast. The meal usually includes roast turkey with stuffing and gravy, a sweet sauce made from cranberries, sweet potatoes, and pumpkin pie. What a meal! It's not surprising that a recent Thanksgiving tradition is to sit after dinner in front of the TV watching a

Silenced by the gun Colombia is one of the most dangerous places in the world for journalists to work. Forty Colombian journalists have been killed in the last five years, many for reporting on drug trafficking and corruption. Enrique Santos Calderon, editor-in-chief of prominent Colombian newspaper El Tiempo, says: "El Tiempo is like a bunker. I move around with bodyguards and armored cars all the time. It is terrible for your private life. But in Colombia the level of danger is such that it is not advisable to lower your guard. The drug trafficker, the Marxist guerrilla and the right-wing paramilitary see the press as one of the few institutions that criticizes them. The violence unleashed by the big drug cartels in the late 1980s was unprecedented. It was brutal. They would kill anybody - any editor, publisher or reporter - who exposed them. The press and the regional radio in zones of conflict are the most exposed. At El Tiempo we have to rotate our correspondents in these areas constantly. Their names are not published. We never have the local correspondent cover sensitive issues. We send someone from Bogota, who does the work and returns immediately."
