answer to each of the questions from 6 to 13.
Quite different from storm surges are the giant sea waves called tsunamis, which derive their name from the
Japanese expression for “high water in a harbor.” These waves are also referred to by the general public as
tidal waves, although they have relatively little to do with tides. Scientists often referred to them as seismic
sea waves, far more appropriate in that they do result from undersea seismic activity. Tsunamis are caused
when the sea bottom suddenly moves, during an underwater earthquake or volcano for example, and the
water above the moving earth is suddenly displaced. This sudden shift of water sets off a series of waves.
These waves can travel great distances at speeds close to 700 kilometers per hour. In the open ocean,
tsunamis have little noticeable amplitude, often no more than one or two meters. It is when they hit the
shallow waters near the coast that they increase in height, possibly up to 40 meters. Tsunamis often occur in
the Pacific because the Pacific is an area of heavy seismic activity. Two areas of the Pacific well accustomed
to the threat of tsunamis are Japan and Hawaii. Because the seismic activity that causes tsunamis in Japan
often occurs on the ocean bottom quite close to the islands, the tsunamis that hit Japan often come with little

warning and can, therefore, prove disastrous. Most of the tsunamis that hit the Hawaiian Islands, however,
originate thousands of miles away near the coast of Alaska, so these tsunamis have a much greater distance
to travel and the inhabitants of Hawaii generally have time for warning of their imminent arrival. Tsunamis
are certainly not limited to Japan and Hawaii. In 1755, Europe experienced a calamitous tsunami, when
movement along the fault lines near the Azores caused a massive tsunami to sweep onto the Portuguese
coast and flood the heavily populated area around Lisbon. The greatest tsunami on record occurred on the
other side of the world in 1883 when the Krakatoa volcano underwent a massive explosion, sending waves
more than 30 meters high onto nearby Indonesian islands; the tsunami from this volcano actually traveled
around the world and was witnessed as far away as the English Channel.

answer to each questions from 42 to 48.
A lot of advice is available for college leavers heading for their first job. In this article we consider the move
to a second job. We are not concerned with those looking for a second temporary position while hunting for
a permanent job. Nor are we concerned with those leaving an unsatisfactory job within the first few weeks.
Instead, we will be dealing with those of you taking a real step on the career ladder, choosing a job to fit in
with your ambitions now that you have learnt your way around, acquired some skills and have some idea of
where you want to go. What sort of job should you look for? Much depends on your long-term aim. You
need to ask yourself whether you want to specialize in a particular field, work your way up to higher levels
of responsibility or out of your current employment into a broader field. Whatever you decide, you should
choose your second job very carefully. You should be aiming to stay in it for two or three years. This job
will be studied very carefully when you send your letter of application for your next job. It should show
evidence of serious career planning. Most important, it should extend you, develop you and give you
increasing responsibility. Incidentally, if you are interested in traveling, now is the time to pack up and go.
You can do temporary work for a while when you return, pick up where you left off and get the second job
then. Future potential employers will be relieved to see that you have got it out of your system, and are not
likely to go off again. Juliette Davidson spend her first year after leaving St. Aldate’s College working for
three lawyers. It was the perfect first job in that “ OK ... they were very supportive people. I was gently
introduced to the work, learnt my way around an office and improve my word processing skills. However,
there was no scope for advancement. One day, I gave my notice, bought an air ticket and traveled for a year.
Juliette now works as a Personal Assistant to Brenda Cleverdon, the Chief Executive of business in the
Community. “In two and a half years I have become more able and my job has really grown, “ she says. “
Right from the beginning my boss was very keen to develop me. My job title is the same as it was when I
started but the duties have changed. From mainly typing and telephone work, I have progressed to doing
most of the correspondence and budgets. I also have to deal with a variety of queries, coming from chairmen
of large companies to people wanting to know how to start their own business. Brenda involves me in all her
work but also gives me specific projects to do and events to organize.”
