Edison once worked for the railroad. Something happened that changed the course of his career. Edison
saved the life of a station official's child, who had fallen onto the tracks of an oncoming train. For his
bravery, the boy's father taught Edison how to use the telegraph.
From 1862 to 1868, Edison worked as a roving telegrapher in the Midwest, the South, Canada, and
New England. During this time, he began developing a telegraphic repeating instrument that made it
possible to transmit messages automatically.
Edison moved to New York City. Within a year, he was able to open a workshop in Newark, New
Jersey. He produced the Edison Universal Stock Printer, the automatic telegraph, the quadruplex, as well
as other printing telegraphs, while working out of Newark.
Thomas Alva Edison died in West Orange, New Jersey on October 18, 1931. At the time of this
death, he was experimenting on rubber from goldenrod. After his death, Edison became a folk hero of
legendary status. His inventions had truly and profoundly affected the shaping of modern society.

The following text is for questions 23 to 25.
Have you ever been stuck on the side of the road with a flat tire? Do you want to be able to change a tire without
having to ask for help? Fortunately, changing a tire is a pretty simple task, provided you're prepared and willing to
exert a little effort.
1. Find a flat, stable and safe place to change your tire. You should have a solid, level surface that will restrict
the car from rolling. If you are near a road, park as far from traffic as possible and turn on your emergency
flashers (hazard lights). Avoid soft ground and hills.
2. Apply the parking brake and put car into "Park" position. If you have a standard transmission, put your
vehicle in first or reverse.
3. Place a heavy object (e.g., rock, concrete, spare wheel, etc.) in front of the front and back tires.
4. Take out the spare tire and the jack. Place the jack under the frame near the tire that you are going to
change. Ensure that the jack is in contact with the metal portion of your car's frame
5. Raise the jack until it is supporting (but not lifting) the car. The jack should be firmly in place against the
underside of the vehicle. Check to make sure that the jack is perpendicular to the ground.
6. Remove the hubcap and loosen the nuts by turning counterclockwise. Don't take them all the way off; just
break the resistance. By keeping the wheel on the ground when you first loosen the nuts, you'll make sure
that you're turning the nuts instead of the wheel.
7. Pump or crank the jack to lift the tire off the ground. You need to lift it high enough to remove the flat tire
and replace it with a spare.
8. Remove the nuts the rest of the way. Turn them counterclockwise until they are loose. Repeat with all lug
nuts, then remove the nuts completely.
9. Remove the tire. Place the flat tire under the vehicle so in the event of a jack failure the vehicle will fall on
the old wheel, hopefully preventing injury. If the jack is placed on a flat, solid base, you shouldn't have any
10. Place the spare tire on the hub. Take care to align the rim of the spare tire with the wheel bolts, then put on
the lug nuts.
11. Tighten the nuts by hand until they are all snug
12. Lower the car without applying full weight on the tire. Tighten the nuts as much as possible.
13. Lower the car to the ground fully and remove the jack. Finish tightening the nuts and replace the hubcap.

The only town in the Shark Bay region is Denham. It's an eight hour drive or a two hour flight from
Perth and, from here, you can join the Shark Bay World Heritage Drive, taking in all the main attractions.
If you don't have wheels, there are plenty of extended tours from Perth, or day and half-day adventures
A closer look at this vast landscape will reveal an abundance of rare and unique plant and animal life,
some of which are found nowhere else on Earth. It's home to over 100 known species of reptiles and
amphibians, 240 varieties of birds, 320 types of fish, 80 different corals and 820 species of plants,
including 700 flowering species. Protecting many endangered species, Shark Bay's Francois Peron
National Park is one of the most important wilderness areas in Australia.
Just off-shore, in Shark Bay Marine Park, lies Dirk Hartog Island National Park - a haven for rare
burrowing frogs and white fairy wrens, and a top spot for fishing, diving, snorkeling and four-wheel-drive
adventures. Today, you can arrive by barge with your 4WD, chartered flight or in your own boat.
Further south in Shark Bay, you can walk along one of only two beaches in the world formed entirely
of tiny white shells, or visit the Hamelin Pool Stromatolites and get a glimpse of life on Earth over 3,500
million years ago.
By far the most popular and spectacular attraction is Monkey Mia, where wild dolphins come in to

During the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, European traders started to get involved in the Slave Trade.
European traders had previously been interested in African nations and kingdoms, such as Ghana and
Mali, due to their sophisticated trading networks. Traders then wanted to trade in human beings.
They took enslaved people from western Africa to Europe and the Americas. At first this was on quite
a small scale but the Slave Trade grew during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, as European
countries conquered many of the Caribbean islands and much of North and South America.
Europeans who settled in the Americas were lured by the idea of owning their own land and were
reluctant to work for others. Convicts from Britain were sent to work on the plantations but there were
never enough so, to satisfy the tremendous demand for labor, planters purchased slaves.
They wanted the enslaved people to work in mines and on tobacco plantations in South America and
on sugar plantations in the West Indies. Millions of Africans were enslaved and forced across the
Atlantic, to labor in plantations in the Caribbean and America.
Slavery changed when Europeans became involved, as it led to generation after generation of peoples
being taken from their homelands and enslaved forever. It led to people being legally defined as chattel
A chattel slave is an enslaved person who is owned forever and whose children and children's children
are automatically enslaved. Chattel slaves are individuals treated as complete, property to be bought and
sold. Chattel slavery was supported and made legal by European governments and monarchs. This type of
enslavement was practiced in European colonies from the sixteenth century onwards.

A developed country, industrialized country, or "more economically developed country" (MEDC), is a
sovereign state that has a highly developed economy and advanced technological infrastructure relative to
other less industrialized nations. Most commonly, the criteria for evaluating the degree of economic
development are gross domestic product (GDP), gross national product (GNP), the per capita income,
level of industrialization, amount of widespread infrastructure and general standard of living. Which
criteria are to be used and which countries can be classified as being developed are subjects of debate.
Developed countries have post-industrial economies, meaning the service sector provides more wealth
than the industrial sector. They are contrasted with developing countries, which are in the process of
industrialization, or undeveloped countries, which are pre-industrial and almost entirely agrarian. As of
2015, advanced economies comprise 60.8% of global GDP based on nominal values and 42.9% of global
GDP based on purchasing-power parity (PPP) according to the International Monetary Fund. In 2015, the
ten largest advanced economies by GDP in both nominal and PPP terms were Australia, Canada, France,
Germany, Italy, Japan, South Korea, Spain, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
