Text A for number 41 - 46.
Police in New Jersey believe they have solved one of the longest running murder cases in the state’s history: the disappearance of five Newark teenagers in 1978. After tracking leads for 32 years, two men were arrested on March 22 and charged with herding the teens at gunpoint into an abandoned row house, tying them up and torching the building, setting a blaze so fierce police say the bodies were incinerated, destroying any evidence. Now prosecutors have a difficult task: prove the teens were murdered when their bodies were never found.
Murders without bodies were long considered one of the most complex challenges in the legal profession, but advances on technology have made the one unthinkable prospect common. The absence of the key piece of evidence-the corpse-poses unique problems for both prosecutors and defense attorneys, according to Thomas “Tad” DiBiase, a Washington-based lawyer who runs a website chronicling “no body” murders. He said the majority of the cases end in convictions or guilty pleas. “The body can tell you how the murder occurred” he said. “it can tell you when the murder occurred, it can tell you where the murder occurred, so by taking away the body you take away all the elements from the case-that makes it enormously difficult.
“The New-Jersey case was initially treated as a missing person’s case and no connections was made between the fire and the teen’s disappearances. In the decades since, any clues have been all but obliterated. The site of the fire is now a housing complex and additional case files were reportedly lost in courthouse flood.

Text B for number 47 - 50.
The term Benign Prostatic Hypertrophy (BPH) just simply means an enlarge prostate. It is generally believed to affect most men over the age of 45 (with various levels of severity). Overall, the number of men with BPH increases progressively with age. By age 60, 50 percent of men will have some signs of the condition. About one-third of these men will develop symptoms that require treatment. Prostate enlargement, or BPH, is not a malignant condition, but it does put pressure on the urethra and can cause a number of urinary symptoms such as frequent urination, urinary urgency, the need to get up at night to urinate, difficulty starting urination, a reduction in the force of urine stream, terminal dribbling, incomplete emptying bladder, and even the inability to urinate at all.
The prostate, a small gland that produce fluid for semen, is in an ideal positions to cause trouble. The glands wraps snugly around the urethra, the tube that carries urine from the bladder. It’s a tight squeeze-and it only gets tighter as men grow older. As symptoms progress, a man may also at higher risk of bladder stones and bladder infection. The kidneys may be damaged from back pressure caused by the retention of large amounts of urine in the bladder. There may be sudden blockage of urinary tube, making urination impossible, and not infrequently, blood may be detected in the urine. The exact mechanism for the enlargement of the prostate gland remains unclear; however there are certain factors that are obviously involved. As men age, the male sex hormone Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) starts to build up in the prostate, which cause the prostate to slowly enlarge.
The Vahlensieck, AUSI and I-PSS rating systems are used to evaluate the severity of symptoms associated with BPH. All these methods are based on a limited number of questions associated with a numbered score: the total score is an evaluative index of BPH-associated severity, which can be from mild to moderate to severe. Severe symptoms that are associated with a very large prostate may require surgery.
