Упр.35.Прочитайте текст и выполните задания:
1. Read the text and choose the best title.
1) Violent teenagers and their problems
2) Be polite or lose free travel, young told
3) Security measures in London
4) No alcohol on public transport
Teenagers will be told to “stand up for their elders” on public transport – or risk losing their right to free travel.
London Mayor Boris Johnson unveiled plans to make youngsters sign a “courtesy pledge” to promise to behave in a respectful manner when travelling in London.
The three-point pledge states that they must give up their seats to the elderly, pregnant and disabled: refrain from using offensive or threatening language; and be courteous and polite to fellow passengers and staff.
Those who refuse, or are caught behaving in a loutish manner will have their free travel passes removed.
The plan affects the 400,000 11-to-15-year-olds in London who qualify for free travel cards. The initiative chimes perfectly with the push to create a Big Society. It is about changing culture and expectations around behavior to improve the atmosphere on buses and train for everyone.
Teenagers found guilty of a serious breach of the new behavior code will lose their travel passes, and will carry out unpaid community work to have them restored. Mr Johnson is also introducing a “two strikes and you are out” policy to deal with repeat offenders, under which those committing a second serious breach of the code will lose their travel rights permanently.
The plan would cost taxpayers nothing as the pledge would be incorporated into the existing application process for youngsters’ free travel passes.
The move follows an earlier initiative of Mr Johnson that banned the consumption of alcohol on public transport. And crime on London buses has been cut by almost a third since the ban was introduced in 2008.

1. Read the text and choose the best subtitles.
1) Last year he killed 77 people – now it’s room service and his own suite
2) The biography of Breivik
3) The victims of the mass murder
4) No remorse
Andreas Behring Breivik is the man responsible for the most notorious mass murder in Norway. Last year the 33-year old set off a bomb in the centre of the capitol that killed eight people and then two hours later went on a shooting rampage on the island of Utonya, killing another 69, many of the Norwegian Labour Party’s youth wing attending a summer camp.
Today he has breakfast of porridge served with either cheese or ham, and a jug of black coffee. After breakfast he undertakes his regular exercise regime in his gym. He enjoys a “suite” of three cells. One is bedroom, one the gym and the third has a computer. He also has a room service bell which he can ring to have cigarettes. But he is kept apart from the other inmates as they might kill him.
Breivik does not deny his role in the worst peace-time massacre. Nor has he sown a shred of remorse.
1) Public outcry
2) Brevik’s mental heath
3) “He has compared it to being in kindergarten”
4) Conditions in the prison
Randi Rosenqvist, a court psychiatrist who has assessed Breivik’s mental health has said he has compared his time in prison with being in “kindergarten”.
The leniency with which he is being treated is entirely in keeping with the county’s penal system, one of the most “progressive” in Europe. The focus is on rehabilitation rather than punishment.
He has access to a family package of 15 television channels. In 2009 prisoners
campaigned for, and were granted access to legal pornography channel. He is also allowed to write letters. Last month he wrote a 38-page open letter to three Norwegian news websites.
