  • yes he was waiting to turn into the petrol station but then at the last

  • minute he decided to turn right in front of me he must have thought he had enough

  • time but I had to swerve to avoid him and I came off the road and landed in a

  • ditch on the opposite side yes he came over to see if I was ok but he tried to

  • say it was my phone and there will be one that is the end of Section one you

  • now have half a minute to check your ins

  • much under Section two

  • section to you will hear a woman talking on the radio about a project to

  • conserved or mice in one area of the UK first you have some time to look at

  • questions

  • 11 to 14

  • now listen carefully and ask questions 11 to 14 good morning and welcome to our

  • weekly program about countryside matters with me today I have Jackie Lamitan

  • Jackie works for the nature organization action for wildlife and she's appealing

  • for volunteers for project she's organizing so he think he might be

  • willing to help please listen carefully

  • jackie thank you yes as you've just heard I represent a charity cool action

  • for wildlife which works to protect plants and animals and I'm here today to

  • talk about a project to save a type of mouse known as a dormouse we can still

  • find the door mouse in this area but in the last few decades the number of told

  • myself seriously declined not just in this country but across the world

  • there's several reasons for this loss of habitat climate change

  • competition for food and this area of the UK is now regarded as one of the

  • last strongholds so naturally we want to help the quick church has survived here

  • as much as we can

  • the aim of the first stage of a project is simply to identify specific locations

  • where do mice are still to be found and estimate the number we have here so just

  • tell you a little bit about the creature in case you don't already know the door

  • mouse is a very attractive very small mammal it only weighs about the same as

  • a couple of pound coins it's bright golden in color and it had a fit fairy

  • tale and big black eyes now you've probably all seen a picture of a dog

  • house but you're very unlikely to have seen a real because they're strictly

  • nocturnal also the hyper date from October to April so it's not around at

  • all about half the year so when is the door mouse to be found

  • well you might need to be near a variety of trees and plants so they can be sure

  • of a continuous supply of food throughout the spring and summer they

  • feed on fellows

  • fallen fruit in fruits right not things that are available in turn as the summer

  • progresses here in the UK but dormouse is most likely to live in places like

  • hedge rows or woods or at the edges of farmland so how do we find out exactly

  • where do mice are well as the hard to spot as I said we have to use indirect

  • methods instead of trying to seed or mice themselves we look for evidence of

  • doormat activity you might eat hazelnuts so we'll be looking for the shelves that

  • do myself open to get a nut inside a lot of wildlife species eat hazelnuts it's

  • not just saw nice but it's usually possible to tell which particular animal

  • has opened and not by looking at the marks on the shelves so now for those of

  • you who would like to help us carry out this survey let me tell you exactly what

  • to do

  • you'll need to concern identification sheik like this from us then you should

  • spend time looking for hazel nut shells in the bottom of hedge rows are on the

  • ground in woodlands before you hear the rest of the talk you have some time to

  • look at questions

  • 15 to 20

  • listen and answer questions 15 to 20 if you find one you see identification

  • sheet to try and establish what kind of creature has opened it you'll see from

  • the pictures on the sheet that different creatures do it in different ways for

  • example you'll see that in six make a small hole in the shell less than two

  • millimeters across then there's another type of mouse called a wood mouse which

  • might make a hole in the shell to but they leave parallel to marks on the

  • inner rim of the shell as well as rough scratches on the surface 33 little

  • mammals called vocals these creatures don't leave any marks on the surface but

  • they leave tooth marks on the in a room of the home and these marks are neat and

  • parallel so they're fairly easy to identify

  • there are squirrels and birds they both open the nuts leaving ha shells that got

  • jagged edges I'm finally we have our door mice they make a hole in the shell

  • that has a smooth inner edge and the tooth marks it leads are on the surface

  • at an angle to the whole and these are the ones we looking for of course

  • firstly if you do find any knots which you think of being opened by door mice

  • you need to record the location as precisely as possible you can use the

  • quick references on a map or you can sketch your own map but if you do be

  • sure to include landmarks around names it's very important that we know exactly

  • where the shells came from then took the nuptials in a small container any kind

  • would do a film books for much books

  • anything that prevents them from being crushed in the post and then finally

  • give them a label just your name and contact details and send them to action

  • for wildlife when we receive them an expert will look at the shelves to

  • confirm the identification the existing that is the end of Section to do not

  • have half a minute to check your offices

  • not turn 26

  • three

  • section 3

  • it to Business Studies students jack and sarah talking to their due to her about

  • a presentation they are preparing first you have some time to look at questions

  • 21 to 26

  • and also questions 21 to 26 color you to have a seat

  • ok so you're going to tell me about the presentation you're preparing for next

  • week's marketing seminar right that's right we trust this plan future detached

  • ok thanks

  • perhaps you could just 27 do you want to begin yes well we're going to compare

  • the websites of cheap bicycle companies right and they're cool hills cycles and

  • wheels unlimited yes and festival we compared the contents of each site and

  • the presentation then we've done an evaluation of each one

  • ok and did you find much difference between the two websites Jack quite a

  • bit yes wheels unlimited has a lot more pages for a start

  • both companies show their catalog I mean pictures of different models of bikeways

  • specifications and prices yes there there too although they list them in

  • different ways

  • hillside cools have got them next to the pictures and with unlimited show them on

  • a separate page that will unlimited advertises lots of other products

  • connected with bikes helmets and clothing and tools

  • yes all kinds of things and he'll cycles know they only show the bikes themselves

  • well is there anything on the hills cycles website that wheels unlimited

  • doesn't have not really yes there is it's got a little photo of the original

  • show and a paragraph about the history of the company its family-owned

  • oh yes I forgot about that right that's the content then

  • and you compare the functions of the two websites eg yes he'll psychos doesn't

  • have any facility for online ordering you have to ring up to order something

  • that's the only way you can do it you can send off a paper tested over with a

  • new school yes I suppose so but Wade Wilson limited you can order online or

  • in the conventional ways that slight fine okay and what about the

  • presentation did you find any particular differences they're all similarities

  • what about visuals as I said voters cited got pictures and they're both

  • quite attractive but was unlimited hasn't got any moving graphics yes he'll

  • cycles has got an animated cartoon the top of the homepage right well it looks

  • as if you've got plenty to talk about

  • there are other things those are the main things we noticed ok well you'd

  • better stick to the most obvious differences because you've only got 10

  • minutes for the whole presentation haven't you and you said your going to

  • evaluate each site as well didn't you how are you going to do that i mean what

  • criteria will use

  • before you hear the rest of the talk you have some time to look at questions

  • 27 to 30

  • listen

  • answer questions 27 to 30 we thought we'd use three criteria how attractive

  • each website A's how user-friendly at ease and how closely it targets its

  • potential customers steven Russell k sounds fine but I'd look at the criteria

  • in a different order if I every year because really you've got to look at

  • attractiveness and user-friendliness in relation to the people the website is

  • aiming at so I deal with that criterion first if I were you write what about the

  • timing have you thought of that ten minutes is very short Gina yes we try to

  • town shoe several times and we've decided to spend four minutes comparing

  • the two sites then three minutes

  • evaluating them and lead three minutes for questions that's not really enough

  • but well it sounds about right to me you've got 10 minutes all together and

  • you've got to stick to that limit it's good practice and at least the audience

  • won't have time to get bored what visuals are you going to use we're going

  • to use PowerPoint and a flip chart as well so we can show you two things that

  • one's for example we're going to start by showing the home pages of each

  • website and we're going to put up a list of key features on the flip chart at the

  • same time and it's a joint presentation so have you decided how you're going to

  • share the work yes at first we thought we'd keep taking it in turns to speak

  • Sarah would save it then I take over and so on and then we thought we just divide

  • it into two equal parts and you one party but it was all too complicated so

  • Sarah is going to do all the talking and I'm going to manage the visuals and hope

  • we can coordinate properly

  • it's the only way we can fit everything is well you've obviously worked hard and

  • you've been very careful with the details only one thing I would say make

  • sure that you keep your visual symbol I mean if you're showing a list of key

  • features for example you should make it as brief as possible just use bullet

  • points and simple phrases even single words your audience won't have much

  • reading time it's a classic mistake with seminar presentations to present so much

  • information that the audience can process it quickly enough and they

  • stopped listening to what you're saying okay

  • right okay now that is the end of Section three you not have half a minute

  • to check your offices

  • control

  • section for you will hear electorate talking about the way in which elephants

  • communicate first you have some time to look at questions 31 to 40

  • now listen carefully and answer questions 31 to 40 and today's lecture

  • I'm going to continue the theme of animal communication and I'm going to

  • describe some of the latest research into the largest of all land animals and

  • that is the elephant of course let me begin by briefly outlining the structure

  • of Alcan society elephants live in layered societies the basics family unit

  • is formed of small groups of adult female or related to each other and

  • their young of both sexes now the females remain in their families for

  • life that highly social but male elephants leave their families and about

  • 14 years of age

  • the travel alone or congregate in small loose groups with other males

  • occasionally joining a family on a temporary basis when
