Redu, Belgium — Nearly 40 years ago, books saved this village.
The community was shrinking fast. Farming jobs had disappeared and families were moving away from this pastoral patch of French-speaking Belgium. But in the mid-1980s, a band of booksellers moved into the empty barns and transformed the place into a literary lodestone. The village of about 400 became home to more than two dozen bookstores — more shops than cows, its boosters liked to say — and thousands of tourists thronged the winsome streets.
Now, though, more than half the bookstores have closed. Some of the storekeepers died, others left when they could no longer make a living. Many who remain are in their 70s and aren’t sure what’ll happen after they’re gone.
It’s not just the businesses at risk. It’s Redu’s identity.
Reis Thebault. This village was a book capital. What happens when people stop buying so many books? In: The Washington Post. Internet: www.washingtonpost.com (adapted).
In the sentence “Many who remain are in their 70s and aren’t sure what’ll happen after they’re gone” (third paragraph), the word “Many” could be correctly replaced with People.

Five stranded snorkellers rescued from tiny island off Australia after their huge SOS message was spotted by helicopter.
(Adam Withnall / Wednesday 23 April 2014)
Five snorkellers stranded on a tiny island off
the east coast of Australia have been rescued after
scrawling a giant SOS message into a nearby
 The group had been stuck out at sea for more
than nine hours after their boat’s anchor failed and
it drifted away.
They had been swimming around a remote
sandbar near Wigton Island, Queensland, when the
 vessel started shifting - with their mobile phones,
clothes, water and sunscreen all still on board – and
it had moved beyond reach before they had time to
Speaking to the Courier-Mail about the ordeal
 yesterday, Lyn Forbes-Smith described how she, a
female friend and three male friends were facing
the prospect of a long, cold night surrounded by
ocean when they finally spotted an approaching
 “We had sort of made plans about what we’d
do on the rock for the evening,” she said.
“We had reef walkers on thankfully, but we
had no food, water, cream, no hats, not much at all.
We just looked for the highest ground, we looked
for rocks where five of us could huddle together
 because we didn’t really want to separate, and we
wanted to be out of the wind as best as possible.”
Ms Forbes-Smith explained that they were
concerned the sandbar – and their message – would
 go under with the tide, but that they were
“reasonably confident” someone would come
looking when friends realised they had not
The group had set off from Keswick Island
 towards Wigton Island at around 8am for the
snorkelling trip, and it was around 5pm when they
first saw signs of help approaching.
Another member of the group, Craig Gilbert,
told ABC News of their joy at spotting an RACQ
 rescue helicopter.
“We saw the helicopter and we thought, 'Oh,
you beauty' - and then it disappeared and we
thought, 'Oh no - we better look out for our beds
for the night' - then it came back probably 20
minutes later,” he said.
Rescue helicopter crew member Damien
 Kross said the five were treated for sunburn and
dehydration, but were otherwise “fine”.
“They were a little bit dehydrated but we
winched them to safety and brought them back here
to Mackay on the mainland] for just to have a
 quick medical attention and they were all fine.”

Denmark’s fat tax
Denmark has become the first country in the world
to introduce a tax on foods seen as being harmful to
health. There will be an extra charge on items that contain
more than 2.3% of a particular type of fat.
5 When you think of Denmark, you think of pastries,
butter and bacon. So perhaps a fat tax isn’t a bad idea,
a levy that will be added to any foods that are high in
saturated fat; milk, cheese and meat, for instance.
Make it more expensive, reduce consumption,
10 improve health. Well, that is the theory. Some shops
have reported increased sales, people hoarding food to
beat the price rise. The Danish Food and Drink Federation
says some might just cross the border to do their
15 There is certainly some skepticism. Scientists insist
that saturated fat is not the right target. Salt and sugar
cause more health problems. But one study claims close
to 4% of premature deaths in Denmark are caused by
people consuming too much saturated fat. So hit
20 shoppers in the pocket, not the waistband.

In places like Canada, the USA, Spain, England and many other countries in Europe it is very common to see teenagers working during their free time. They work in restaurants or shops; they work as baby sitters or dog walkers. There are many part time jobs for students. Many students work part time during the year and full time during their summer vacation.
Things are different in Brazil. Teens usually work only if their families need money. There are not many part time jobs for students. Working students usually work during the day and go to school in the evening. A few students who do not need the money work part time as volunteers in social projects, but they are not many.
Is that just a cultural difference or is it some kind of prejudice?
