Task 1 

Read these newspaper headlines and listen to the news reports. Are the headlines correct? Check the correct answer.

1.
A fire destroyed the famous Presidential Hotel last night.
Firefighters helped all the hotel guests escape safely from the building, although some people lost their clothes and other belongings. Firefighters say the fire probably started in a guest room, possibly because a guest fell asleep while smoking.
2.
Government health officials have closed down Ocean Gardens,
a well-known local seafood restaurant.More than 10 people came down with food poisoning after eating at the restaurant last week. The officials say that the problem was probably caused by contaminated water in the restaurant's fish tanks.
3.
A group of Japanese students was rescued yesterday after being stranded for 10 days in the Australian outback.
The trouble started after a vehicle the students were traveling in broke down. They couldn't get cell phone reception where they were, so the students had to survive by eating snakes, insects, and berries, and wait for rescuers to find them. Luckily, the students are all recovering well from their harrowing experience.
4.
Pop singer Jimmy Wild didn't arrive for his concert last night, disappointing over 80,000 fans.
A representative of the singer said that he was sick and the concert would be rescheduled for next month. No one knows exactly what Wild's illness was, but sources say he's probably just exhausted because he's been touring for three months straight.
5.
Coast Guard boats are searching for a fishing boat with a crew of four,
which has been missing for two days. Shortly after the boat left land, it ran into a very bad storm and sent out a message for help. Several private citizens have volunteered to assist the Coast Guard with their search tomorrow.
6.
And this just in.
Bai Yun, the giant panda at the city zoo, has finally given birth to twin cubs. Zoo officials are delighted at this event, since pandas are very rarely born in zoos. Right now, the baby pandas are very small-about the size of mice.

1.
A protest by over 5,000 nurses caused major traffic jams downtown yesterday morning.
The nurses protested in front of County General Hospital to demand higher pay and an increase in staffing. They say that major budget cuts have resulted in unfair salaries. And because 20% of nursing staff was laid off last month, remaining nurses have to work longer hours and take care of more patients. Later in the day, hospital management promised to consider their demands
2.
Over 20,000 people so far have visited the national museum to see the collection of works by the popular Colombian artist, Botero.
That is the largest number of visitors the gallery has had for several years. This is the first time that Botero's work has been shown in this area, and the collection includes some of his best-known paintings and sculptures.
3.
Several hundred people are fleeing their homes in Los Angeles, California,
because of a forest fire burning out of control in the nearby hills. The fire began five days ago. Hot weather, wind, and a very dry summer are helping the fire spread very quickly. Firefighters have come from as far away as Alaska to help put out the flames.
4.
A customs official at Kennedy Airport was very surprised yesterday
when he checked the baggage of a passenger and . found over 50 live snakes, some of them very poisonous. The government believes that the passenger was planning to sell the snakes illegally in the U.S. They would have been worth up to $1,000 each. A few snakes escaped from the suitcases, but airport officials say that all of them were caught within an hour.
5.
As a result of the heavy rain over the weekend,
city officials fear there may be a flood. Many people living near the river have had to leave their homes. Over 30 families are now homeless. Most of them are staying with friends and relatives. Volunteers worked throughout the weekend to place sandbags along the river.
6.
A spokesperson for two of the country's largest airlines-
Northern Airlines and Air International-has announced that the two airlines are discussing a possible merger for next year. If the merger goes ahead and the two companies combine, it could be bad news for travelers. Many business experts think that the new company would certainly raise ticket prices.
