Mosses and lichens are often confused in park because many common names for lichens include the word “moss”. ..(141).. ,the two organisms are radically different and are not even in the same kingdom. Both are fascinating organisms, often overlooked because they are small and not very showy. They grow all over the world and are used for dyes, animal fodder, ornamentation, medicines, and religious practices.
Lichens are perhaps the most amazing living thing on Earth, because they represent a symbiotic relationship between a fungus and ..(142).. ,algae or cyanobacteria. The symbiotic nature of lichen was not fully understood until 19th century when the idea was first proposed. They form a fascinating example of cooperative relationship in nature, with the fungus using algae or bacteria to produce energy, while the algae or bacteria enjoys the protection the fungus provides.
These organisms reproduce in several ways. Many produce spores that attempt ..(143).. partner algae or bacteria, while ..(144).. reproduce through fragments of the lichens that break off the scatter. They can grow almost everywhere in the world, from extremely acidic soil to freezing arctic conditions and are found ..(145).. on trees, rocks, and everything is between. Contrary to popular belief, the lichens that colonize trees, such as members of the Usnia family, are not harmful to their hosts, and in fact, they often capture valuable nutrients.

Reading 1 for question 161-167.
How do you stop disease-carrying mosquitoes from multiplying? That's the question plaguing the Brazilian government, which has been sending army soldiers door-to-door on a mission to fight Zika-the virus suspected of causing microcephaly in infants born to infected mothers. “They are giving leaflets saying that people should have to keep your backyard clean from rubbish,” said photographer Tomas Munita, who has been documenting Recife, a northeastern state capital with a population of 3.7 millions. Any stray items left outside, even a bottle cap, can collect rainwater and become a breeding ground for Aedes aegypti mosquitoes that are thought to be the main carriers of Zika.
But in Brazil's favelas, or poor neighborhoods, Munita says it's hard to imagine that the government's information campaign will have much effect. “It's almost impossible to control something in that kind of place,” he said. Many houses in favelas are makeshift shacks of cardboard and discarded sheet metal. With limited access to clean water and garbage collection, trash piles up and collects water, creating a perfect breeding ground for mosquitoes.
The mosquitoes scourge goes far beyond these tight-packed neighborhoods. Aedes aegypti has been incredibly hard to kill since it arrived in Latin America with the slave trade from Africa. Huge eradication programs in the 1950's stamped out the mosquito in some countries, only to have them to surge back in 1970's and '80s. Even the country's heatlh minister, Marcelo Castro, has been quoted as saying that Brazil is "badly losing the battle" against mosquitoes, which aren't just a threat because they could carry Zika. In Recife, Munita says that some people who aren't pregnant fear catching chikungunya and dengue from mosquitoes more than Zika, since those diseases cause more severe illness

Ten years later, sculptor Frederic Auguste Bartholdi was commissioned to design a sculpture with 1876 in mind for Completion, to commemorate the centennial of the American Declaration of Independence. The statue was named “Liberty Enlightening the World” and was a joint effort between America and France.
It was agreed that the American people were to build the pedestal, and the French people were responsible for the statue and its assembly in the United States. However, dearth of funds was a problem on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean. In France, public fees, various forms of entertainment, and a lottery were among the methods used to raise funds.

Financing for the pedestal was completed in August 1885, and pedestal construction was finished in April 1886.

In 1933, the care and administration of the national monument was transferred to the National Park Service.

Reading 3 for question 175-180
Two American hunters are one big step closer to legally killing a pair of black rhinos in Namibia and bringing their body parts home as trophies. On Thursday, the U.S Fish and Wildlife Service announced online that it was approving the hunter’s requests to import trophies from two upcoming hunts sanctioned by to the Namibian government. After sifting through thousands of citizen comments over the past months, the U.S federal agency defended its decision by saying the hunt which are slated to raise money for conservation, are part of Namibia’s science-based management strategy for black rhinos. In short, the agency said the permit requests meet the legal standard of allowing limited hunting of an endangered species to benefit its conservation overall. There are about 4000 to 5000 black rhinos left in the world, down from 70000 In the 1960's.
Hunter and reality host Corey Knowlton had applied for an import permit following his $350.000 winning bid for a hunting permit in Namibia at an auction last year held by the Dallas Safari Club. Hunter Michael Luzich of Las Vegas had also applied for a permit to import a trophy from another hunt in the African country. More than 135,000 people signed public petitions against the hunt or sent private comments to the agency, an unprecedented level of public interest. The Fish and Wildlife Service has declined to share the nature of the individual comments, but several animal advocacy groups have spoken out against the ruling.
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals general counsel, Delcianna Winders stated that the foundation will be filing a lawsuit over this outrageous decision to allow two sports hunters to bring back the bodies of animals shots in cold blood to decorate their trophy walls, while according to Wayne Pacelle, president and CEO of the US humane society, the permits are fundamentally inconsistent with the purpose of the Endangered Species Act, which is to con serve endangered species, not to authorize their slaughter and calls the agency’s decision. “The worst sort of mixed message to give a green light to American trophy hunters to kill rhinos for their heads.” But the Fish and Wildlife Service argued that the money accrued from trophy hunting of black rhinos has been used to fund annual black rhino counts, improve rhino crime investigation and prosecution, and ensure the traceability of all rhino horn owned by Namibia.
Why did U.S Fish and Wildlife Service approve the hunter’s request?
(A) the request was submitted by a reality TV host
(B) the request was supported by 130.000 people
(C) the hunts met the requirement and provided benefit
(D) the hunts are in line with endangered species act
What is the main idea of the first paragraph?
(A) Rhinos hunting activity in Namibia
(B) conservation of rare Namibian black rhinos
(C) permission to bring home rhino trophies
(D) online request of black rhinos trophies
Which of the following is NOT the description of the U.S Fish and Wildlife Service?
(A) it is a government agency
(B) it shares the same idea with Namibian government to save black rhinos
(C) it Iis affiliated with people for ethical treatment of animals
(D) it must comply with Endangered Species Act to conserve rare animals
