On average, the professors at Mira’s university are younger. The youngest professor is only 26 years old.

Dear Agnes,

I am a lover of pets, but I think my neighbours have gone too far. They have a pet snake named Lucille who keeps escaping and ends up in my garden. My neighbours are always very apologetic about Lucille's travels so far, I haven't had the heart to confront them about it. The problem is that I together for barbecues and garden parties. I don't want to ruin this friendship, but feel that a large snake making regular visits to my garden is pushing the limits. Help!


Confused in Croydon


Dear Confused,

Friends shouldn't put friends in difficult positions. Lucille's visit to your garden are obviously causing you a lot of stress and should be dealt with sooner rather than later. This is also a health and safety issue, which your neighbours should be more than aware of as owners of a large snake. I suggest you broach the subject with them next time you get together. Lucille is also at risk from any number of potential dangers in your garden, a point you could bring up with your neighbours.

Before the 18th century, when humans in the industrial west began to burn coal, oil and gas, our atmosphere typically contained about 280 parts per million of carbon dioxide. Those are the conditions “on which civilization developed and to which life on earth is adapted.”

The adverb clauses have the function of an adverb. In this clause we have some subordinating conjunction to connect the dependent clause (adverb clauses) to the independent clause. The conjunction links the adverb clauses to the word in the independent clause that the adverb clause will modify. hose modifies are made to elicit place, time, cause and purpose of an action. The adverb clause answer the questions: where?, when? and why?, and under what conditions? The same way we have types of adverbs in English, we have some types of subordinating conjunctions that composes the adverb Clause.

Inglês

“[...] I propose a generous definition of photopoetry as a form of photo-text that takes, for its primary components, poetry and photography. It is the product of some form of working practice between poet and photographer, be it retrospective or collaborative; or, on occasion, a sole poet-photographer or photographer-poet. Poems or photographs may precede the other, or be conceived in conjunction around a central topic or theme.”
Considering the quote about the definition of photopoetry and the elements that compose this genre, analyse the following statements and classify them as T (True) or F (False).

( ) Photograph and poems, especially the lyric ones, are similar forms, because they present a single point-of-view, a single event or idea.

( ) Narrative poems are the most common to be used in photopoetry, because the narrative is better connected to the visual immediacy of the photo.

( ) Although there are successful junctions of prose and photo, poetry and photography stand out as a unique relation, because of the similarities of both genres.

( ) A text is only classified as photopoetic if the text is placed on the photo, from the moment it is taken.

BAXTER: You’re right – they are checky! (Looks straight at SKINNER for some moments.) (SKINNER’S face remains perfectly impassive.)
In the quote taken from the play The Silver King, it can be seen many stage directions, written between parenthesis. Concerning this element of the dramatic text, analyse the following statements.
I. Stage directions are part of the dramatic text to contribute with the lines spoken by the actors. All the movements and expressions proposed on it complement what is spoken.
II. Stage directions are important only when there is an object in scene, the expressions and the movements must be inferred by what the characters say.
III. Stage directions are important for the closet dramas and for the readers who decide to read a drama in general, because they help the reader to have an idea of the action as if it was been watched on a stage.

The drugs don’t work: what happens after antibiotics?

Antibiotic resistance is growing so fast that routine surgery could soon become impossible. But scientists are fighting back in the battle against infection

Questões de Inglês - PUC/SP 2019

1- The first antibiotic that didn’t work for Debbi Forsythe was trimethoprim. In March 2016, Forsythe, a genial primary care counsellor from Morpeth, Northumberland, contracted a urinary tract infection. UTIs are common: more than 150 million people worldwide contract one every year. So when Forsythe saw her GP, they prescribed the usual treatment: a three-day course of antibiotics. When, a few weeks later, she fainted and started passing blood, she saw her GP again, who again prescribed trimethoprim.

2- Three days after that, Forsythe’s husband Pete came home to find his wife lying on the sofa, shaking, unable to call for help. He rushed her to A&E. She was put on a second antibiotic, gentamicin, and treated for sepsis, a complication of the infection that can be fatal if not treated quickly. The gentamicin didn’t work either. Doctors sent Forsythe’s blood for testing, but such tests can take days: bacteria must be grown in cultures, then tested against multiple antibiotics to find a suitable treatment. Five days after she was admitted to hospital, Forsythe was diagnosed with an infection of multi-drugresistant E coli, and given ertapenem, one of the so-called “last resort” antibiotics.

3- It worked. But damage from Forsythe’s episode has lingered and she lives in constant fear of an infection reoccurring. Six months after her collapse, she developed another UTI, resulting, again, in a hospital stay. “I’ve had to accept that I will no longer get back to where I was,”she says. “My daughter and son said they felt like they lost their mum, because I wasn’t who I used to be.” But Forsythe was fortunate. Sepsis currently kills more people in the UK than lung cancer, and the number is growing, as more of us develop infections immune to antibiotics.

4- Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) – the process of bacteria (and yeasts and viruses) evolving defense mechanisms against the drugs we use to treat them – is progressing so quickly that the UN has called it a “global health emergency”. At least 2 million Americans contract drug-resistant infections every year. So-called “superbugs” spread rapidly, in part because some bacteria are able to borrow resistance genes from neighbouring species via a process called horizontal gene transfer. In 2013, researchers in China discovered E coli containing mcr-1, a gene resistant to colistin, a last-line antibiotic that, until recently, was considered too toxic for human use. Colistin-resistant infections have now been detected in at least 30 countries.

5- “In India and Pakistan, Bangladesh, China, and countries in South America, the resistance problem is already endemic,” says Colin Garner, CEO of Antibiotic Research UK. In May 2016, the UK government’s Review on Antimicrobial Resistance forecast that by 2050 antibiotic-resistant infections could kill 10 million people per year – more than all cancers combined.

6- “We have a good chance of getting to a point where for a lot of people there are no [effective] antibiotics,” Daniel Berman, leader of the Global Health team at Nesta, told me. The threat is difficult to imagine. A world without antibiotics means returning to a time without organ transplants, without hip replacements, without many now-routine surgeries. It would mean millions more women dying in childbirth; make many cancer treatments, including chemotherapy, impossible; and make even the smallest wound potentially lifethreatening. As Berman told me: “Those of us who are following this closely are actually quite scared.”

7- Bacteria are everywhere: in our bodies, in the air, in the soil, coating every surface in their sextillions. Many bacteria produce antibiotic compounds – exactly how many, we don’t know – probably as weapons in a microscopic battle for resources between different strains of bacteria that has been going on for billions of years. Because bacteria reproduce so quickly, they are able to evolve with astonishing speed. Introduce bacteria to a sufficiently weak concentration of an antibiotic and resistance can emerge within days. Penicillin resistance was first documented in 1940, a year before its first use in humans. (A common misconception is that people can become antibioticresistant. They don’t – the bacteria do.)
