PASSAGE TWO (Questions 3-4)





Line
(5) The extremely hot and humid weather that occurs in the United States in July and August is commonly called the “dogs days” of summer. This name comes from the star Sirius, which is known as the Dog Star. Sirius is the brightest visible star, and in the hot summer months it rises in the east at approximately the same time as the Sun. As ancient people saw this star rising with the Sun when the weather was at its hottest, they believed that Sirius was the cause of the additional heat; they believed that this bright star added its heat to the heat of the Sun, and these two together made summer weather so unbearably hot.

3. The topic of this passage is

(B) the causes of hot and humid weather
(C) why the hot summer days are known as the “dogs days”
(D) the days that dogs prefer

(A) the name for the summer days came from Sirius, the Dog Star
(B) dogs generally prefer hot summer days
(C) the hottest days occur in the summer because of the movements of the Sun and stars
(D) Sirius rises at almost the same time as the Sun during the summer months


PASSAGE THREE (Questions 5-6)





Line
(5)




(10) The term “primitive art” has been used in a variety of ways to describe works and styles of art. One way that this term has been used is to describe the early period within the development of a certain style of art. Another way that this term has been used is to describe artists who have received little professional training and who demonstrate a nontraditional naiveté in their work.
A wonderful example of this second type of primitive artist is Grandma Moses, who spent all her life living on a farm and working at tasks normally associated with farm life.
She did not begin painting until she reached the age of seventy-six, when she switched to painting from embroidery because the arthritis in her hands made embroidery too difficult. Totally without formal education in art, she began creating panoramic images of everyday life on the farm that have achieved international fame

(B) Grandma Moses’s life on the farm

(D) Grandma Moses’s primitive life-style
6. Which of the following best expresses the main idea of the passage?
(A) Grandma Moses spent her life on a farm
(B) Art critics cannot come to any agreement on a definition of primitive art.
(C) Grandma Moses is one type of primitive artist because of her lack of formal training.
(D) Many artists receive little professional training.






PASSAGE FOUR (Questions 7-9)

(1)



(5) A new hearing device is now available for some hearing-impaired people. This device uses a magnet to hold the detachable sound-processing portion in place. Like other aids, it converts sound into vibrations, but it is unique in that it can transmit the vibrations directly to the magnet, and then to the inner ear, producing a clearer sound. The new device will not help all hearing-impaired people, only those with a hearing loss caused by infection or other problem in the middle ear. It will probably help no more than 20 percent of all people with hearing problems. Those people, however, who often have persistent ear infections should find relief and restored hearing with the new device.

7. What is the author’s main purpose?
(A) to describe a new cure for ear infections
(B) to inform medical personnel of a new device
(C) to urge doctors to use the new device
(D) to explain the use of the magnet

8. It can be inferred from the passage that
(A) this use of magnets is new
(B) infections are in the inner ear
(C) magnets can be dangerous for 80 percent of the people
(D) the new device is smaller than old ones
9. According to the passage, what does the device NOT do?
(A) transmit sound to the inner ear
(B) help all hearing-impaired people
(C) produce clear sound
(D) change sound into vibrations

PASSAGE FIVE (Questions 10-13)

(1)



(5) After two decades of growing student enrollments and economic prosperity, business schools in the Unites States have started to face harder times. Only Harvard’s MBA School showed a substantial increase in enrollment in the 1993 school year. Both Princeton and Stanford have seen decrease in their enrollments. Since 1990, the number of people receiving Masters in Business Administration (MBA) degrees, has dropped about 3 percent to 75,000, and the trend of lower enrollment rates is expected to continue.
There are two factors causing this decrease in students seeking an MBA degree. The first one is that many graduates of four-year colleges are finding that an MBA degree is not a guarantee for a plush job on Wall Street, or in other financial districts of major American cities. Many of the entry-level management jobs are going to students graduating with Master of Arts degrees in English and the humanities as well as those holding MMBA degrees. Students have asked the questions, “Is an MBA degree really what I need to be best prepared for getting a good job?” The second major factor has been the cutting of American payrolls and the lower number of entry-level jobs being offered. Business needs are changing, and MBA schools are struggling to meet the new demands.


10. What is the main focus of this passage?
(A) Jobs on Wall Street
(B) Types of graduate degrees
(C) Changes in enrollment for MBA schools
(D) How schools are changing to reflect the economy

11. Which of the following university’s business schools has not shown a decrease in enrollment?
(A) Princeton
(B) Harvard
(C) Stanford
(D) Yale
12. Which of the following descriptions most likely applies to Wall Street?
(A) A center for international affairs
(B) A major financial center
(C) A shopping district
(D) A neighborhood in New York

13. According to the passage, what are two causes of declining business school enrollments?
(A) Lack of necessity for an MBA and an economic recession
(B) Low salary and foreign competition
(C) Fewer MBA schools and fewer entry-level jobs
(D) Declining population and economic prosperity Baca Selengkapnya...

Thierry Henry "King Henry"


Data diri:

Lahir: 17 Agustus 1977
Tempat Lahir : Les Ulis
Kewarganegaraan: Perancis
Tinggi : 188 cm
Berat badan : 73 kg
Julukan: King Henry








Pria kelahiran 'les ulis' perancis ini memang dianugerahi bakat olahraga sejak lahir. Mempunyai kecepatan berlari diatas rata-rata adalah salah satu kelebihannya. Thierry Daniel Henry yang kerap dipanggil dengan Titi atau Henry ini mengawali karirnya sebagai atlet pelari cepat. Kemudian beralih ke dunia sepakbola pada umur 15 tahun. Henry memulai karir profesionalnya pada umur 17 tahun dengan bermain di AS Monaco.

Bermain sebagai pemain sayap di AS Monaco yang dipimpin oleh Arsene Wenger (pada saat itu) Henry tidak bisa menunjukan bakat aslinya. Dikarenakan posisi striker sudah ditempati oleh Sonny Anderson, Arsene Wenger memainkan Henry sebagai pemain sayap. Di klub inilah Henry pertama kali bertemu dengan Arsene Wenger.

Tahun 1997, Henry terpilih dalam skuad timnas Perancis. Satu tahun setelah itu, ia sukses membawa Les Blues menjuarai Piala Dunia 1998. Penampilannya yang mengesankan membuat Juventus tertarik untuk membelinya. Henry pun akhirnya meninggalkan Monaco pada bulan Januari 1999.

Di klub Italia tersebut, Henry diturunkan sebagai pemain sayap. Posisi yang tidak sesuai inilah membuatnya tidak bisa mengembangkan kemampuan terbaiknya. Dari 16 kali tampil, Henry hanya mampu mencetak tiga gol saja.

Pemain yang pernah bermain bersama As Monaco dan Juventus ini akhirnya berlabuh di Highbury (arsenal) pada tahun 1999. Gagal bersinar di Italia, Henry kemudian dibeli Arsenal dengan nilai transfer 10,5 juta poundsterling atau setara dengan 189,4 miliar rupiah. Bertemu kembali dengan pelatih lamanya "Arsene Wenger" di Arsenal, Henry kembali ditempatkan sebagai sayap (winger). Setelah kepergian anelka dan pensiunnya ian wright, Henry mulai diberikan kepercayaan oleh Arsene Wenger untuk menempati posisi striker.

Kepercayaan Wenger tidak disia-siakannya, alhasil Henry pun dalam sekejap menjelma menjadi striker yang ganas dan haus akan gol. Selama delapan musim bergabung dengan Arsenal, dari musim 1999-00 hingga 2006-07, Henry selalu menjadi top skorer The Gunners di setiap musim kompetisi Premier League. Kepiawaian Thierry Henry dalam mengolah bola di lapangan hijau sudah tidak diragukan lagi. Striker asal Perancis ini dianggap sebagai salah satu pemain depan terbaik dunia.

Bersama klub Inggris ini pula, ia menemukan masa keemasannya sebagai pemain sepak bola kelas dunia. Di bawah asuhan Wenger, Henry selalu tampil sebagai top skorer di setiap musim kompetisi Premier League yang dijalaninya. Pria bertinggi badan 188cm ini menjadi pencetak gol tersubur The Gunners sepanjang masa, yaitu mencetak 226 gol di semua kompetisi yang diikuti Arsenal.

Atas prestasinya tersebut, Henry diberikan penghargaan Sepatu Emas dua tahun berturut-turut, yaitu tahun 2004 dan 2005.

Setelah menjalani delapan tahun membela Arsenal, pada musim 2007-08, ia memutuskan pindah ke Barcelona. Klub Spanyol tersebut membeli Henry dengan banderol transfer sebesar 16,1 juta poundsterling atau setara dengan 290,6 miliar rupiah.

Di awal musimnya di kompetisi Divisi Primera, Henry sempat menemui kesulitan. Tampaknya posisinya yang bukan lagi striker utama membuatnya harus belajar beradaptasi dengan permainan El Barca. Tapi itu tidak berlangsung lama. Dalam waktu singkat, Henry membuktikan bahwa masih diperhitungkan di antara jajaran pemain bintang Barcelona, seperti Samuel Eto’o, Ronaldinho dan Lionel Messi.

Walau posisinya adalah sebagai striker, Henry memiliki kemampuan lebih dibandingkan dengan striker umum lainnya. Tak jarang ia sering turun jauh hingga ke lini tengah untuk menjemput bola. Kombinasi kecepatan, visi dan kreatif yang dimilikinya, membuatnya selalu mampu untuk mencetak gol.
