Safe, comfortable and, above all, green. Electric-powered cars will not produce any substances which are dangerous for either people or the environment. In 10-20 years all cars will have their own built- in computers. These computers will help choose the best way to go and avoid accidents. You can even sit back and let the computer do the driving!

As you know, personal computers use a lot of power. In fact, with their printers and monitors, computers in the USA use each year as much electricity as the whole state of Oregon. Not to waste electricity, new “green” computers are being developed by more than a hundred personal computer firms in the USA. When left on but unused for more than a few minutes, they go down to a standby, using 80 per cent less energy. At a command the PCs return to full power.

Nowadays, people working in offices use computers, which contain hundreds of documents. Do you know how much space these documents would take up, if they were printed on paper? They’d occupy whole rooms! In many offices computers are linked in a network. This way, employees can exchange information and messages without moving from their tables.

Technology has allowed more and more people to work from the place where they live. Using a modem on a telephone line connected to their computer, everyone can be linked to the company computer. In this way, they don’t waste so much time, because they don’t have to go to the office every day. It also means less pollution in the atmosphere caused by transport.

Good-bye, pencils! Farewell, sheets of paper! These days’ cartoons are being made with a computer. The first-ever cartoon to be created by computer was “Toy Story” produced by Steve Jobs. A typical Walt Disney cartoon usually needs up to 600 designers. “Toy Story” was made using only 100. So, like so much of modern life, today’s cinema seems to be falling more and more into the hands of the computer.

Read the text. Choose the correct answers.

Henry Moore was born in 1898, in a small house in Castleford, in the north of England. He was the seventh child in a family of eight children. His father was a miner and the family were very poor. Despite this, his father wanted his children to be educated, so he sent them to a local school. In his teenage years, Henry was already very clever, and he also showed an ability for art. He went to Castleford Grammar School and later became a teacher there. He might have stayed at the school, but when the First World War started Henry was sent to fight in the army.

In 1917, Henry was injured during the Battle of Cambrai, and he didn’t fight again. Instead, he spent the rest of the war training new soldiers. After the war, he realised that he didn’t want to be a teacher any more. He wanted to follow his dream of being an artist. In 1921, he was accepted at the Royal College of Art. He was very talented, but he wanted to be different from everybody else. He began to experiment with different modern styles of art. This was a problem for his teachers who were trying to teach more formal, traditional art. They couldn’t understand what Henry wanted to do.

In 1924, Henry left England and went travelling in Italy and Paris. He studied Michelangelo and Giovanni Pisano. When he visited the Louvre Museum in Paris, he became interested in sculpture. Back in London, he married Irina Radetsky, who he had met at art college. He began teaching at the Royal College of Art and at the same time, he worked on his own art. His first public sculpture was called West Wind, cut in the stone of a building in London, above St James’s Park underground station.

In the 1930s, Moore became a member of the modern art movement. He admired artists like Pablo Picasso and Jean Arp. Then, during the Second World War, he worked as a war artist and drew many pictures of ordinary people in London escaping the bombing. These have become well known. After the war, he was given many awards, including the International Prize for Sculpture in 1948. He died in 1986. In September 2000, Moore Square was opened on the site where he was born in Castleford.

John James Audubon, nineteenth-century artist and naturalist, is known as one of the foremost authorities on North American birds. Born in Les Cayes, Haiti, in 1785, Audubon was raised in France and studied art under French artist Jacques-Louis David. After settling on his father's Pennsylvania estate at the age of eighteen, he first began to study and paint birds.

In his young adulthood, Audubon undertook numerous enterprises, generally without a tremendous amount of success; at various times during his life he was involved in a mercantile business; a lumber and grist mill, a taxidermy business, and a school. His general mode of operating a business was to leave it either unattended or in the hands of a partner and take off on excursions through the wilds to paint the natural life that he saw. His business career came to end in 1819 when he was jailed for debt and forced to file for bankruptcy.

It was at that time that Audubon began seriously to pursue the dream of publishing a collection of his paintings of birds. For the next six years he painted, birds in their natural habitats while his wife worked as a teacher to support the family. His Birds of America, which included engravings of 435 of his colorful and

lifelike water colors, was published in parts during the period from 1826 to 1838 in England. After the success of the English editions, American editions of his work were published in 1839, and his fame and fortune were ensured.
