(1) ____________________________. (2) However, plastic in the ocean actually decomposes as it is exposed to the rain and sun and other environmental conditions. (3) When plastic decomposes it releases potentially toxic bisphenol A (BPA) and PS oligomer into the water. (4) BPA and PS oligomer are sources of concern because they can disrupt the functioning of hormones in animals and can seriously affect reproductive systems. (5) Polystyrene begins to decompose within one year, releasing components that are detectable in the parts-per-million range. (6) However, the volume of plastics in the ocean is increasing, so that decomposition products remain a potential problem. (7) It is estimated that 10 percent of the world’s plastic waste finds its way into the sea and slowly but surely most of it ends up in the Pacific Ocean. (8) Each year as much as 150,000 tons of plastic debris, most notably Styrofoam, washes up on the shores of Japan alone. (9) Vast expanses of waste, consisting mainly of plastic, float elsewhere in the oceans.

Spider-Man isn’t the only person with an interest in spider silk. While Spider-Man uses the threads to zigzag from building to building, or to snare a bad guy, scientists are investigating silk for different reasons. Though researchers have learned a lot about silk by investigating spiders, insects such as caterpillars, ants and bees also have been studied for the sticky stuff. Scientists are even trying to get silk from animals such as goats. It turns out silk might be good for weaving a lot more than shirts and ties. In the future, the silky fiber might be used to make supertough bulletproof vests and light but strong parachute cords. Silk also might work well for delicate tasks inside the body.

Researchers are experimenting with using silk to support growing cells, the same way a construction crew builds scaffolding around a building to help keep everything in its place during construction. Spider silk is an ideal material, according to a researcher from University of Wyoming, but humans have been gathering silk not from spiders but from silkworms for hundreds of years. But silkworm silk has its problems. A silkworm covers its silk in sticky glue that holds the cocoon together.

Sometimes humans have a bad allergic reaction to this glue. Spiders, on the other hand, don’t use sticky glue. Most spiders have an abdomen made up of five different sections. The last two sections are where the silk-making happens. These sections of the lower belly are modified into special structures called spinnerets, which are sort of like faucets for silk. The silk is mixed in glands and then secreted out of the spinnerets.

Spiders can’t shoot silk out for long distances the way Spider-Man does. Instead, they attach the emerging silk to something, like a tree branch, and then move away from the branch. This pulls the silk outward. The main ingredient in spider silk is proteins, and there are many different kinds, depending on which spider is spinning and which silk it wants to make. Some of the proteins are very large and complicated, and therefore hard to make a lot of in the lab. So some scientists have put the genes that have the instructions for making silk into other creatures, such as goats.

The silk-making genes are turned on only in the goat cells that make milk, so when these goats are milked, there is silk in the milk. However, a liter of milk may have only 15 grams of silk, which means it would take about 600 gallons of milk to make one bulletproof vest. At higher concentrations the milk starts clumping, perhaps because the silk proteins are sticking to milk proteins.

 The power of music affects all of us and has long appealed to our emotions. In fact, the earliest known music-making is in Stone Age culture, ____(48)____ we have been tapping our toes, humming along, singing and dancing ever since. It is for this reason that UCLA researchers are using music to help children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD), for whom understanding emotions is a very difficult task. This inability enables them of the chance to ____(49)____ effectively and make friends and can often lead to social isolation and loneliness. The researchers have developed a music education program ____(50)____ to help children with ASD better understand emotions and learn to recognize emotions in others.

Specifically, the children are using a method of music ____(51)____ known as the Orff-Schulwerk approach. Developed by 20th-century German composer Carl Orff ("schulwerk" is German for schooling), it is a unique approach to music learning that is supported by movement and based on things that kids ____(52)____ like to do, such as sing, chant rhymes, clap, dance and keep a beat or play a rhythm on anything near at hand. Orff called this music and movement activity "elemental" - basic, unsophisticated and concerned with the fundamental building blocks of music.
