Police Spell Out Graffiti Mania Fears

        A secret police report has built up a profile of the typical graffiti vandal. It seems that the average vandal is usually a male, aged 15 to 19, from poor family.

        His “addictive habit” costs million of pounds every year, according to the report by British Transport Police anti – graffiti squad. They estimate that more than & 2 million is spent cleaning trains in London alone.

        The report suggests that graffiti is the work of small groups. They are motivated by the need to get attention by making some form of statement. More than a third of the vandals who are caught do it again, which suggests that graffiti is addictive.

        The survey of 150 graffiti vandals arrested last year showed that 40 per sent of offenders are university students or still at school – and 99 per sent are male. Just over 17 per sent are unemployed.

        The report says graffiti is dangerous – four youngsters have been killed while trying to paint trains in the Underground.

        The police have been visiting schools and writing to parents to try and prevent young people becoming vandals. They are also using handwriting experts to identify the “tags” of graffiti artists. In London alone there were over 150 graffiti arrests last year, but police recognize the vandals will continue unless they are stopped, because graffiti writing is so addictive.

True or false.

  1. Most graffiti vandals are men.___________

  2. The police do not use handwriting experts. _______________

  3. The majority of graffiti vandals are students. ______________

  4. It is easy for graffiti vandals to stop. _________________

  5. Graffiti writing can be dangerous._____________

  6. Graffiti writing is against the law._________________

  7. Graffiti artists act in big groups. _____________________

  8. Graffiti is a form of statement.____________

  9. There were 150 graffiti arrests last year. _______________

10.Forty per cent of 150 arrested vandals are unemployed. ______________

V. Reading

Total -10 points




Task 1. Read the text and use the sentences (A-H) to complete the gaps. There are two extra sentences you will not need.

 

Dogs help people get well.

Joan Gray is a nurse. Often her patients are people who have now returned home from hospital but are not ready to go back to work. She also spends a lot of her time visiting people still in hospital. 1(    ).

They look forward to seeing her, especially because she doesn't go alone. She takes her dog, Bertie, with her. Joanne says that Bertie makes her patients feel better. Bertie started going to work with Joanne four years ago and she is sure that he has made a real difference. " Bertie is brilliant with people", she says. " For example, he helps patients who cannot use their arms very well. 2(   ).

He can also help patients who are very nervous or depressed. They tell me they feel calmer and happier when he is with them.

Joanne realized several years ago how much her patients enjoyed seeing an animal. “I used to have a cat that I took with me sometimes on my visits. My patients always asked me about him and all said they loved seeing him. 3(   ). It's easier to take a dog to see someone.

Research shows that pets can reduce stress and help people get better more quickly from all sorts of illnesses. 4(   ). For instance, one man in hospital didn't want to talk to anyone but he spoke to Bertie. He told him he hated the hospital food and didn't like the people in the beds next to him. So the hospital was then able to get him the food he liked. 5(   ).

Not all dogs are suitable for visiting sick people. Some dogs are afraid of people they don't know. 6(   ). But the right dog can help people get better.

 

 Task 2.

A. Joanne can give lots of examples of this.

B. That' why I got Bertie.

C. There are many other dogs like Bertie.

D. They want to touch him and this makes them try harder to move

     their arms.

E. Joanne's visits are very important to all her patients.

F. Others are too friendly.

G. Of course, not everyone likes dogs.

H. They also arranged to move him to a different bed.
