Humans have been using wind power for at least 5,500 years to propel sailboats, sailing ships, operating windmills, and most recently, generating electricity, though its uses have been limited by the wind’s speed and strength instability. However, a new study by scientists at the Carnegie Institution and California State University compiled the first-ever global survey of wind energy available at high altitudes in the atmosphere. The researchers assessed potential for wind power in terms of wind power density, which takes into account both wind speed and air density at different altitudes in the world’s five largest cities: Tokyo, New York, Sao Paulo, Seoul, and Mexico City. They found that there is a huge amount of energy available in high altitude winds, especially near the jet streams. Jet streams are meandering belts of fast winds at altitudes between 20 and 50,000 feet that shift seasonally, but otherwise are persistent features in the atmosphere. Jet stream winds are generally steadier and 10 times faster than winds near the ground, making them a potentially vast and dependable source of energy. Several technological schemes have been proposed to harvest this energy, including tethered, kite-like wind turbines that would be lofted to the altitude of the jet streams.

41. The topic of the paragraph is _______.

  1. future uses of wind power
  2. best locations to exploit wind energy source
  3. wind power: a new form of renewable energy
  4. the potential of wind power at high altitude
  5. wind power turbines and generators

42. The sentence that best ends the paragraph is _______

  1. Up to 40 megawatts of electricity could be generated by current designs and transmitted to the ground via the tether.
  2. So, while high-altitude wind may ultimately prove to be a major energy source, it requires substantial infrastructure.
  3. Good selection of a wind turbine site is critical to economic development of wind power.
  4. Meteorologists also use the jet streams as an aid to forecast weather.
  5. Will then wind power tapped by high-flying kites light up our homes?

No one doubts that the words we write or speak are an expression of our inner thoughts and personalities. But beyond the meaningful content of language, a wealth of unique insights into an author’s mind are hidden in the style of a text - in such elements as how often certain words and word categories are used, regardless of context. When people try to present themselves a certain way, they tend to select what they think are appropriate nouns and verbs, but they are unlikely to control their use of articles and pronouns. These small words create the style of a text, which is less subject to conscious manipulation.

Social psychologist James W. Pennebaker of the University of Texas at Austin Pennebaker developed a computer program that analyzes text, called Linguistic Inquiry and Word Count (LIWC, pronounced “Luke”). The software has been used to examine other speech characteristics as well, tallying up nouns and verbs in hundreds of categories to expose buried patterns.

Most recently, Pennebaker and his colleagues used LIWC to analyze the candidates’ speeches and interviews during last fall’s presidential election. The software counts how many times a speaker or author uses words in specific categories, such as emotion or perception, and words that indicate complex cognitive processes. It also tallies up so-called function words such as pronouns, articles, numerals and conjunctions. Within each of these major categories are subsets: Are there more mentions of sad or happy emotions? Does the speaker prefer "I" and "me" to "us" and "we"?

LIWC answers these quantitative questions; psychologists must then figure out what the numbers mean. Before LIWC was developed in the mid-1990s, years of psychological research in which people counted words by hand established robust connections between word usage and psychological states or character traits.

The political candidates, for example, showed clear differences in their speaking styles. John McCain tended to speak directly and personally to his constituency, using a vocabulary that was both emotionally loaded and impulsive. Barack Obama, in contrast, made frequent use of causal relationships, which indicated more complex thought processes. He also tended to be vaguer than his Republican rival.

Dog agility is a dog sport in which a handler directs a dog through an obstacle course in a race for both time and accuracy. Dogs generally run off-leash with no food or toys as incentives. The handler can touch neither dog nor obstacles.____(48)____, the handler’s controls are limited to voice, movement, and various body signals, requiring ____(49)____ training of the animal. In its simplest form, an agility course consists of a set of standard obstacles, laid out by an agility judge in a design of his own choosing on a roughly 100 by 100-foot (30 by 30 m) area, with numbers indicating the order in which the dog must complete the obstacles. Courses are ____(50)____ enough that a dog could not complete them correctly without human direction. In ____(51)____ , the handler must assess the course, decide on handling strategies, and direct the dog through the course, with precision and speed equally important. Many strategies exist to ____(52)____ for the inherent difference in human and dog speeds and the strengths and weaknesses of the various dogs and handlers.
