Questão 42 47264UDESC Manhã 2009/1
 A man had two children, a daughter by his first wife and a son by his second. His
daughter was very beautiful, and her brother loved her but his mother hated her.
The stepmother sent the daughter to the store to buy candles. Three times, the girl put
down the candles to climb a stile, and a dog stole them.
 The stepmother told her to come and let her comb her hair. She claimed she could not
comb it on her knee, or with the comb, and sent the girl for a piece of wood and an axe,
and cut off her head.
She stewed her heart and liver, and her husband tasted them and said they tasted
strangely. The brother did not eat but buried his sister under a rose-tree. Every day he
 wept under it.
One day, the rose-tree flowered, and a white bird appeared. It sang to a cobbler and
received a pair of red shoes; it sang to a watchmaker and received a gold watch and
chain; it sang to three millers and received a millstone. Then it flew home and rattled the
millstone against the eaves. The stepmother said that it thundered, and the boy ran out,
 and the bird dropped the shoes at his feet. It rattled the millstone again, the stepmother
said that it thundered, the father went out, and the bird dropped the watch and chain at
his feet. It rattled the millstone a third time, and the stepmother went out, and the bird
dropped the millstone on her head.

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.

Salads and fries
To deal with widespread criticism (and the
possibility of legal judgments) that their food is
making people obese, fast-food chains are testing
new health-conscious products in America. This fall
 McDonald’s, which has already introduced fruit packs
and salads in many of its international branches, is
testing a new adult version of its Happy Meal. The Go
Active meal includes salad, bottled water, a nutrition
booklet and a clip-on pedometer to encourage walking.
 Trying to be more extreme, Burger King last month
showed for the first time a line of Light Combo Meals
that come with a grilled chicken baguette, salad and
bottled water. The new food options are helpful, but
some salads, like McDonald’s Crispy Chicken Bacon
 Ranch Salad, can contain more fat than a Quarter
Pounder Hamburger. So, before you get in line, go
online to check calorie counts. Fast food doesn’t have
to mean fat food anymore.

About the text, it is CORRECT to state that
Millennials ditch the pill for high-tech pull & pray
Millennials are increasingly ditching the pill — that miracle tablet that ushered in female empowerment and free love — and opting for more old-fashioned methods of contraception, from condoms to the rhythm method to diaphragms. A new survey of 2,000 US women by Cosmopolitan magazine found that 70 percent of millennials who have used the pill have stopped taking it or thought about stopping in the past three years. In its place, some are using new fertility apps designed to tell a woman when she’s ovulating — and thus likely to become pregnant — such as MyFLO, Clue and Natural Cycles, the first app certified for contraception in Europe. These companies, featured in sponsored Instagram posts depicting beautiful women on restorative vacations drinking coconut water, make going off the pill look as trendy as green juices and SoulCycle.
