She studied biology in college and zoology at Johns Hopkins University, where she received her masters degree in 1933. In 1936, she was hired by the US Fish and Wildlife Service, where she worked most of her life. Carsons first book, Under the Sea Wind, was published in 1941. It received excellent reviews, but sales were poor until it was reissued in 1952. In that year, she published The Sea Around Us, which provided a fascinating look beneath the oceans surface, emphasizing human history as well as geology and marine biology. Her imagery and language had a poetic quality. Carson consulted no less than 1,000 printed sources. She had voluminous correspondence and frequent discussions with experts in the field. However, she always realized the limitations of her non-technical readers. In 1962, Carson published Silence Spring, a book that sparked considerable controversy. It proved how much harm was done by the uncontrolled, reckless use of insecticides. She detailed how they poison the food supply of animals, kill birds, and contaminate human food. At that time, spokesmen for the chemical industry mounted personal attacks against Carson and issued propaganda to indicate that her findings were flawed. However, her work was vindicated by a 1963 report of the Presidents Science Advisory Committee.

VII. c k on vn sau v chn phng n ng (A, B, C hoc D) cho mi cu, t cu 71 n 75 History books record that the first film with sound was The Jau Singer in 1927. But sound films, or talkies, did not suddenly appear after years of silent screenings. From the earliest public performances in 1896, films were accompanied by music and sound effects. These were produced by a single pianist, a small band, or a full-scale orchestra; large movie theaters could buy sound-effects machines. Research into sound that was reproduced at exactly the same time as the pictures called synchronized sound began soon after the very first films were shown. With synchronized sound, characters on the movie screen could sing and speak. As early as 1896, the newly invented gramophone, which played a large disc carrying music and dialogue, was used as a sound system. The biggest disadvantage was that the sound and pictures could become unsynchronized if, for example, the gramophone needle jumped or if the speed of the projector changed. This system was only effective for a single song or dialogue sequence. In the sound-on-film system, sounds were recorded as a series of marks on celluloid which could be read by an optical sensor. These signals would be placed on the film alongside the image, guaranteeing synchronization. Short feature films were produced in this way as early as 1922. This system eventually brought us talking pictures. Cu 71: The passage is mainly about the A. development of sound with movies B. research into reproduction C. disadvantages of synchronized sound D. history of silent movies Cu 72: According to the passage, films using sound effects were screened A. in 1927 B. as early as 1896 C. as early as 1922 D. before 1896 Cu 73: It can be inferred that _________ A. orchestras couldnt synchronize sound with the pictures B. sound-effects machines were not common because they were expensive C. gramophones were developed about the same time as moving pictures D. most movie theaters had a pianist Cu 74: According to the passage, gramophones were ineffective because they A. were too large for most movie theaters B. got out of synchronization with the picture C. were newly invented and still bad imperfections D. changed speeds when the needle jumped Cu 75: According to the passage, sound-on-film guaranteed synchronization because the recording was A. read by an optical sensor B. made during the filming of the picture C. inserted beside the image on the film D. marked on the gramophone VIII.
