MELLOR:THE RIGHT TO KNOW AND THE RIGHT TO STAY IN OFFICE

Sir,

As might be expected from a Press Complaints Commission which includes tabloid editors, it has now stated that the public have the right to be informed about the private behavior of politicians if it affects the conduct of public business.


Was it therefore in the public interest for the tabloid editors to pay an 'electronics expert' who had bugged a bedroom and then sold the tapes and photographs of it? Have we now reached the stage where it is easier for those who acquire other people's damaging personal secrets to sell them to the tabloids rather than risk jail over blackmail?

The statement amounts to a simple approval of the tabloids' use of paid informers, as, for example, did the KGB in Moscow or the Stasi in East Germany. Like them, the tabloids use such information to destroy lives without trial, defense or jury. It endorses the practice of allowing a picket line of doorstepping journalists outside a house, to barricade relatives and children and cause them enormous distress, all in the interests of 'a good story'.

61. What does this letter mainly discuss?

A) Tabloids and its editors.

B) Privacy and the paparazzi.

C) Electronics experts and the public interest.

D) Blackmail and politicians.

62. What does the writer probably mean by putting 'electronics expert' in inverted commas?

A) The person doing the bugging knows a lot about electronics.

B) The person is less interested in electronics than in earning money by selling the secret recordings to newspapers.

C) It might be a combination of Choices A and B.

D) The person is not only interested in electronics but also skilled in it.

63. According to this letter, what kind of country employs large numbers of informers?

A) A police state.

B) A peaceful country.

C) A capitalist state.

D) A well-developed country.

64. What does "endorse" mean in the context?




A) support

B) oppose

C) force

D) discourage

65. Which statement is true about the author's stance?

A) Tabloids care about the public interest so they only report what the public are interested in.

B) Tabloids should be admired for their attempt to unveil politicians' private lives.

C) Everyone has the right to be informed of other people's business.

D) The paparazzi's invasion of privacy has made celebrities' family members unhappy.

II)

He came into the room to shut the windows while we were still in bed and I saw he looked ill. He was shivering, his face was white, and he walked slowly as though it ached to move.

"What's the matter, Schatz?"

"I've got a headache."

"You'd better go back to bed."

"No, I'm all right."

"You go to bed. I'll see you when I'm dressed."

But when I came downstairs he was dressed, sitting by the fire, looking a very sick and miserable boy of nine years. When I put my hand on his forehead I knew he had a fever.

"You go up to bed, " I said, "you're sick."

"I'm all right," he said.

When the doctor came, he took the boy's temperature.

"What is it?" I asked him.

"One hundred and two."

Downstairs, the doctor left three different medicines in different colored capsules with instructions for giving them. One was to bring down the fever, another a purgative, the third to overcome an acid condition. The germs of influenza can only exist in acid condition, he explained. He seem to know all about influenza and said there was nothing to worry about if the fever did not go above one hundred and four degrees. This was a light epidemic of flu and there was no danger if you avoid pneumonia.

Back in the room, I wrote the boy's temperature down and made a note of the time to give the various capsules.

"Do you want me to read to you?"

"All right, if you want to," said the boy. His face was very white and there were dark areas under his eyes. He lay still in the bed and seemed very detached from what was going on. I read aloud from Howard Pyle's Book of Pirates, but I could see he was not following what I was reading. I thought perhaps he was a little lightheaded and after giving him the prescribed capsules at eleven o'clock, I went out for a while.

It was a bright, cold day, the ground covered with a sleet that had frozen so that it seemed as if all the bare trees, the bushes, the cut brush and all the grass and the bare ground had been varnished with ice. I took the young Irish setter with me up the road and along a frozen creek, but it was difficult to stand or walk on the glassy surface and the red dog slipped and slithered and I fell twice, hard, once dropping my gun and having it slide away over the ice.

Cyberpunk is a sub-genre of science fiction, noted for its focus on "high tech and low life". It takes its name from the combination of cybernetics and punk, featuring advanced science such as information technology and cybernetics, coupled with a degree of breakdown or a radical change in the social order.



Classic Cyberpunk characters were marginalized, alienated loners who lived on the edge of society in generally dystopic futures where daily life was impacted by rapid technological change, a ubiquitous datasphere of computerized information, and invasive modification of the human body.

The plot of Cyberpunk writing often centers on a conflict among hackers, artificial intelligences, and mega corporations, tending to be set within a near-future Earth, rather than the far future settings or galactic vistas found in novels like Isaac Asimov's Foundation or Frank Herbert's Dune. The settings of this future tend to be post-industrial dystopias, but are normally marked by extraordinary cultural ferment, and the use of technology in ways never anticipated by its creators. Much of the genre's "atmosphere" is full of terror and evil, and written works in the genre often use techniques from detective fiction. Primary exponents of the Cyberpunk field include William Gibson, Bruce Sterling, Pat Cadigan, Rudy Rucker and John Shirley. The term became widespread in the 1980s and remains current today.

Unlike New Wave Science Fiction, which imported stylistic techniques and concerns that already existed in literature and culture at large, Cyberpunk originated in the science fiction genre first before gaining mainstream exposure. During the early and mid-1980s, Cyberpunk became a fashionable topic in academic circles, where it began to be the subject of postmodernist investigation. In the same period, the genre penetrated Hollywood and became one of cinema's staple science-fiction styles. Many popular, high-grossing films such as Blade Runner and the Matrix trilogy can be seen as prominent developments of the genre's visual styles and themes. Computer games, board games and role-playing games (such as Shadowrun, or the rather appropriately named Cyberpunk 2020) often feature storylines that are heavily influenced by Cyberpunk writing and movies. Beginning in the early 1990s, trends in fashion and music were labeled as Cyberpunk.

71. What does the passage mainly discuss?

A) Classic Cyberpunk characters.

B) What exactly Cyberpunk is.

C) How Cyberpunk films have penetrated Hollywood.

D) The differences between New Wave Science Fiction and Cyberpunk Fiction.
