First, let me tell you where I’m coming from. Before I saw “The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring”, I didn´t know the difference between an orc and an elf, or what Middle-earth was in the middle of. This review is coming to you from a Tolkien-freezone. I went into Peter Jackson’s movie – the first of a trilogy – with no preconceptions. I came out, three hours later, sorry I’d have to wait a year to see what happens next in Frodo Baggins’s battle against the Dark Lord, Sauron, and thinking a trip to the bookstore to pick “The Two Towers” might be in order. (…)
This is a violent movie – too violent for little ones – and there are moments more “Matrix than medieval. Yet it transcends cheap thrills; we root for the survival of our heroes with depth of feeling that may come to a surprise. The movie keeps drawing you in deeper. Unlike so many overcooked action movies these days, “Fellowship” doesn’t entertain you into a stupor. It leaves you with your wits intact, hungry for more.

It has been said that many people are victims of
calcuholism, a dependence on the use of calculators,
causing a diminished ability to do mathematics on
one’s own. Technology in schools, offices, and industry
 has resulted in an unfortunate overdependence
on all types of modern devices, but particularly on
calculators, Calcuholism can be avoided if schools
and individuals concentrate on using the mind to do
mathematics rather than relying on calculators for
 simple tasks.
Obviously the term calcuholism has been coined
with the intent to compare it to other addictions such
as alcoholism. While it is not nearly as serious as
alcoholism, dependence on the calculator can be
 harmful. Abuse of something normally beneficial may
lead to a harmful reliance on it. It is not that calculators
are harmful, but overuse may cause harm by making
people forget how to do mathematics with their own
 The problem arises from modern technological
advances. In schools, classes become more
complicated because of the technology for which
students must be prepared when they graduate.
Calculators are permitted and essential in many
 classes. In offices, calculators, computers, and word
processing systems are commonplace because they
increase speed and improve efficiency. Business
people may spend hours working with numbers
and rarely calculate mentally. In industry as well,
 the emphasis on advanced machines results in
individuals’ solving fewer mathematical problems on
To alleviate the problem, schools should
avoid allowing students to use calculators too
 early and should require sufficient in-class work
without them. All of us should restrict our use of
calculators and strive to do math on our own so that
we will not lose our basic math skills.
Calcuholism has increased in recent years
 and will continue to increase due to advances
in technology. To avoid dependency, we must
do mathematics with our minds from time to time rather
than with a machine.

INSTRUCTION: Answer question according to the text below.
In France, a film taps into a desire for change
By Celestine Bohlen
The New York Times - May 2, 2016
In France, as in the United States, there is no "politics as usual" this year. With popular
disaffection on the rise, traditional parties and candidates have been thrown off course as voters look
for alternatives to the status quo. The restless, sometimes incoherent, clamor for change has taken
many forms in France — support for the extreme-right National Front; recurring strikes by hard-left
 labor unions; and a protest movement known as Nuit Debout, or Up All Night, which for the last month
has gathered young people in Paris and several other cities to vent their frustration with the "system."
If there is one thing these various dissatisfied voters would agree upon, it is the failure of the French
political establishment, on the left and on the right, to solve the country’s persistent problems — high
unemployment, low growth and the social cleavage created by immigration and inequality.
 This frustration helps explain the unlikely success of "Demain," or "Tomorrow," a French
documentary. Since its release in December, the film has drawn almost one million viewers. The 80-
minute film was made as a road movie with a budget of 1.3 million euros, about $1.5 million, one-third
of it collected through crowdfunding. With a chatty narration by Mélanie Laurent, a well-known French
actress, it tracks a global quest for workable initiatives in places as disparate as Detroit, Finland,
 Iceland and India, where people have found ways to move away from dependence on fossil fuels,
mobilize grass-roots democracy, grow their own food and inspire children to learn. According to Cyril
Dion, who, along with Ms. Laurent, directed the film, "Demain" reconnects people to something
positive and gives them hope. The movie opened at a propitious moment, after a difficult year that
included two terrorist attacks in Paris and a persistent economic crisis.
 The response has been enthusiastic and sustained: The film is playing in 122 French cinemas,
for longer than some recent Hollywood blockbusters. Audiences have been known to stand up and
applaud as the credits appear on the screen. Mr. Dion said some viewers have written to tell him that it
changed their lives. When he showed the movie on April 17 at the Place de la République, in central
Paris, where the Nuit Debout protesters have been camping out every night since March 31, a crowd
 of some 2,500 people — mostly young — braved unusually temperatures and occasional technical
difficulties. "They, too, are looking for solutions that can work," said Mr. Dion, 37, a former actor with a
long history of civic activism. According to Mr. Dion, this success is proof that optimism, fueled by
positive can- do energy, can be a force for change.
