Breaking Bad is an American crime drama television series created and produced by Vince Gilligan. Set and produced in Albuquerque, New Mexico, Breaking Bad is the __ ( I )__ story of Walter White (Bryan Cranston), a struggling high school chemistry teacher who is diagnosed with __ ( II )__ lung cancer at the beginning of the series. He turns to a life of crime, producing and selling methamphetamine, in order to secure his family’s financial future before he dies, teaming with his former student, Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul). The series has been labeled a contemporary western by its creator.
The series premiered on January 20, 2008 in the United States and Canada on the cable channel AMC, and the series finale aired on September 29, 2013. Breaking Bad received __ ( III )__ critical acclaim, and is widely regarded as one of the greatest television series of all time. By its end, the series was among the __ ( IV ) _ _ cable shows on American television, with audience numbers that doubled in the fifth season from the previous year’s episodes.
Breaking Bad was created by Vince Gilligan, who spent several years writing the Fox series The X-Files. Gilligan wanted to create a series in which the protagonist became the antagonist. “Television is historically good at keeping its characters in a self-imposed stasis so that shows can go on for years or even decades,” he said. “When I realized this, the __ ( V )__ next step was to think, how can I do a show in which the fundamental drive is toward change?” He added that his goal with Walter White was to turn him from Mr. Chips into Scarface.
While Gilligan defines the term “breaking bad” as “to raise hell”, it apparently means more than that. According to Lily Rothman, it is an old phrase which “connotes more violence than ‘raising hell’ does.... The words possess a wide variety of nuances: to ‘break bad’ can mean to ‘go __ ( VI )__ ‘, to ‘defy authority’ and break the law, to be verbally ‘combative, belligerent, or _ _ ( VII )__ or, followed by the preposition ‘on,’ to ‘completely dominate or humiliate.’”
The concept emerged as Gilligan talked with his fellow writer Thomas Schnauz regarding their _ _ ( VIII )__ unemployment and joked that the solution was for them to put a “meth lab in the back of an RV and drive around the country cooking meth and making money.”
The adjectives that properly fill in blanks I, II, III, IV, V, VI, VII and VIII, in the text, are

Being a Better Online Reader
Soon after Maryanne Wolf published “Proust and the
Squid,” a history of the science and the development
of the reading brain from antiquity to the twenty-first
century, she began to receive letters from readers.
 Hundreds of them. While the backgrounds of the
writers varied, a theme began to emerge: the more
reading moved online, the less students seemed to
There were the architects who wrote to her about
 students who relied so heavily on ready digital
information that they were unprepared to address
basic problems on-site. There were the neurosurgeons
who worried about the “cut-and-paste chart mentality”
that their students exhibited, missing crucial details
 because they failed to delve deeply enough into any
one case. And there were, of course, the English
teachers who lamented that no one wanted to read
Henry James anymore.
As the letters continued to pour in, Wolf experienced a
 growing realization: reading had changed profoundly.
She called the rude awakening her “Rip van Winkle
moment,” and decided that it was important enough
to warrant another book. What was going on with
these students and professionals? Was the digital
 format to blame for their superficial approaches, or
was something else at work?
Certainly, as we turn to online reading, the physiology
of the reading process itself shifts; we don’t read the
same way online as we do on paper. Reading involves
 factors not usually acknowledged. The contrast of
pixels, the layout of the words, the concept of scrolling
versus turning a page, the physicality of a book versus
the ephemerality of a screen, the ability to hyperlink
and move from source to source within seconds online
 – all these variables translate into a different reading
The screen, for one, seems to encourage more
skimming behavior: when we scroll, we tend to read
faster but less deeply, as a way of coping with an
 overload of information. On screen, people browse
and scan to look for keywords, and to read in a less
linear, more selective fashion, instead of concentrating
more on just following the text. We become tired from
the constant need to filter out hyperlinks and possible
 distractions. And our eyes may grow fatigued from
the constantly shifting screens, layouts, colors, and
contrasts, so the reading approach needs to adjust,
taking mental and physical energy. __________.
“As children move more toward an immersion in digital
 media, we have to figure out ways to read deeply in
this new environment”, said Wolf. She has decided
that, despite all her training in deep reading, she, too,
needs some outside help. To finish her book, she has
ensconced herself in a small village in France with
 shaky mobile reception and shakier Internet. Faced
with the endless distraction of the digital world, she
has chosen to tune out just a bit of it. She’s not going
backward; she’s merely adapting.

Questão 61 172718UFRGS FIS - LIT - ING - ESP 2016
 Identity is about belonging, about what
you have in common with some people and
what differentiates you from the others. At its
most basic it gives you a sense of personal
 location, the stable core to your individuality.
But it is also about your social relationships,
your complex involvement with others, and in
the modern world these have become even
more complex and confusing. Each of us lives
 with a variety of potentially contradictory
identities, which battle within us ........
allegiance: as men or women, black and
white, straight or gay, able-bodied or
disabled. The list if potentially infinite, and so
 therefore are our possible belongings. Which
of them we focus on, bring to the fore,
“identify” with, depends on a host of factors.
At the center, however, are the values we
share with others.
 Identities are not neutral. ........ the quest
for identity are different, and often conflicting
values. By saying who we are, we are also
striving to express what we are, what we
believe and what we desire.(…)
 All this makes debates over values
particularly fraught and delicate: they are not
simply speculations ........ the world and our
place in it; they touch on fundamental, and
deeply felt issues about who we are and what
 we want to become. They also pose political
questions: how to achieve reconciliation
between our collective needs as human
beings and our specific needs as individuals
and members of diverse communities, how to
 balance the universal and the particular.
These are not new questions, but they are
likely, nevertheless, to loom ever-larger as we
engage with the certainty of uncertainty that
characterizes ‘new times’.
 The basic issue can be stated ........
simply: by what criteria can we choose
between the conflicting claims of differences?
To ask the question immediately underlines
the poverty of our thinking about this. Can
 the rights of a group obliterate the rights of
an individual? Should the morality of one
sector be allowed to limit the freedom of
others? To what extent should one particular
definition of the good and the just prevail
 over others? These are ancient questions, but
the alarming fact is that one still lacks a
common language for addressing them, let
alone resolving them.
