While Renaissance architecture was characterized by circles and straight lines, the Baroque was the era of ovals and undulating walls which alternated between concave and convex. Baroque buildings became ever more elaborately ornamented. Interiors were covered in paintings, and windows and doors were capped with complex shapes. Garlands, vases, urns, cartouches, and scrolling were used for decoration. Composite capitals and other variations on the ancient orders were used. Pilasters (columns partly attached to walls) appeared on facades in great abundance. In order to appear more monumental, columns and pilasters were paired and often extended over two or more stories, forming what is called the colossal order. In order to maximize drama and grandeur, architects came to incorporate the space around buildings themselves in their designs. The manipulation of the surrounding environments was highly controlled. Shrubs and hedges were cut into cubic shapes, flowers were planted in geometric patterns, and the gardens and woodlands surrounding palaces were penetrated by straight rays of avenues. This total control molded the viewer’s entire experience of the shapes.
The synonym of the underlined word “abundance” most likely is ....

The appearance of wizards in fantasy art, and description in literature, is uniform to a great extent, from the appearance of Merlin in Arthurian related texts to those of Gandalf in The Lord of be Rings. The association with age means that wizards, both men and women, are often depicted as old, white - haired, and (for men) with long white beards so majestic as to occasionally become host to lurking woodland creatures. It predates the modern fantasy genre, being derived from the traditional image of wizards such as Merlin. Some theorize the look of the wizard is modeled after the Germanic god Woden or Odin as he was described in his wanderer guise as being an old man with a long gray beard, baggy robes, a wide-brimmed hat and walking with a staff; he has been hypothesized as the main influence for Tolkien’s Gandalf. Women, especially those termed “enchantresses”, are more likely to appear young, though that is often the effect of magic.
Their clothing is often typical as well. Wizards commonly wear robes or cloaks and pointed hats. These are often brightly colored and spangled with stars and moons, astrological symbols, or with magical sigils. They may also be of gold. The coloring may have significance within the fantasy worlds: in The Lord of the Rings, the wizards have colors assigned to them, indicative of rank. When Gandalf the Grey becomes Gandalf the White, it is a major ascension of status; whereas in the Dragonlance Dungeons and Dragon setting, the wizards show their moral alignment by their robes. Terry Pratchett described this common attire as a way of establishing to those they meet that the person is capable of practicing magic.
Wizards may accessorize their wardrobe with magical props, such as crystal balls, wands, staves, books, potions, scrolls or tinkling bells, while often rounding out their appearance with ever-present animal companions, which may act as familiars. Stories in contemporary settings resembling the real world, such as those of Harry Potter, sometimes eschew some or all of these trappings for more conventional attire.

In the last ten years kidnapping has become common in Haiti.
Usually, young children of richer people are taken and held for ransom. It has made Haiti a dangerous place to live, work and visit.
Now. the nation is addressing the problem. A wealthy busineseman has been charged with kidnapping the adult children of a business rival. His arrest changed things.

Second, the investigation found many present and former police officers engaged in criminal activities, including kidnapping.
Third. the arrests showed that light-skinned Haitians could be violent criminals. The common belief was that Haitians with darker skins were more prone to violent crime.
The businessman, from the wealthy family, is Clifford Brandt. He had the children of a rival auto dealer kidnapped for a $2.5 million ransom. The children were rescued. Investigation showed that Brandt headed a large criminal enterprise in kidnapping, illegal arms trafficking, and laundering money.
Haitians saw the arrests along class and racial lines. A cab driver said, ‘They are always blaming us for kidnapping, but I have always known some wealthy and powerful people were involved all along.”
A businessman said, “You always asusumed that kidnapping did not have a face.” said a businessman who negotiated his kidnapped son’s release after eight days in the summer of 2008. “Now It has a face.”

A low-cost and free telephone program is available from the federal government. it is called the Lifeline program.
More than 15 million families are using the program. Cell phones were included in the program in 2005.
Low-income families get discounts on their phone bills. The first 250 minutes and 250 text messages are free. This makes it possible for many to have phone service.
Georgia and other states say there is widespread abuse by some participants in the Lifeline program. State officials charge many homes are getting more than one Lifeline phone. Some poor people are no different than some non-poor. If the system is not regulated, why not get two or three phones?
The program does not do much checking of participants. Georgia wants to impose a $5 a month charge for the basic service. This can cause a problem for poor people. They need phones but may not be able to afford them.
Opponents of the $5 fee say if a family can only afford the free phone, they will be hurt by the $5 monthly charge.
The telephone industry is a strong supporter of the Lifeline program. They think today’s poor people are the working people of tomorrow. They think it is a good idea to get them as customers now.
The companies are supposed to decide who is eligible. To be in the program, people must have incomes below 135 percent of the poverty level. Or be eligible for another federal program such as food stamps.
A woman in Oklahoma wanted to see how easy it would be to get a phone. She waited in line at a tent to see if the vendor would give her a free phone even though she does not qualify she did.
“Anybody can get them. They say it’s a lifeline... they’re for needy people. I’m notneedy and I went up and I got one with no lD no proof of income, nothing,” she said
Policy makers know that some people will try to take advantage of programs. Their challenge is to discourage abuse. At the same time they do not want to penalize honest people.
The states and federal governments are proposing new ways to collect information on Lifeline telephone use.
Which one is NOT TRUE according to the text?
(A) The lifeline program is provided by the government.
(B) More than 15 million people use the lifeline program.
(C) Mobile phones are included in the lifeline program.
(D) Georgia is one of the states that provides the Lifeline program.
(E) The Lifeline program is a low-cost and free telephone program.
