SENATOR WANTS TO JUMP-START* COLLEGE FOR ALL

Sen. John Edwards today will propose a government program to pay the first year's college tuition for a student who also works 10 hours a week at a job or community service. Edwards says offering a jump-start would encourage more people to go to college. Once there, they would be better able to pursue financial aid and recognize the value of a college education.   In addition, he'll put forward plans to offer four-year, full-tuition scholarships to students who agree to teach in hard-pressed schools or work in homeland security for five years after graduation. Edwards' speech at the University of Maryland embraces an expanded federal role -and billions of dollars in new spending- in raising pay and standards for teachers, reducing the size of high schools and making college more affordable. Edwards also urges colleges to end admissions practices that give a preference to **alumni's children and that offers early decisions to students who apply early and agree to attend if accepted. Both policies tend to be used most by upper-income students. "Today, it's too hard for too many Americans to go up the ladder of success," he says. "It is time for some reforms to get back to our democratic roots."
*jump-start = ayuda inicial               **alumni: antiguos alumnos

Survival!
Teenager Brian Robinson was travelling from the USA to Canada to see his father. He was the only passenger in a small plane, high above the Canadian mountains, when suddenly the pilot had a heart attack and died!
Brian was terrified. He was shaking, but he tried not to panic. Below him, he could see a lake. He turned the plane towards the lake and, incredibly, he landed on the water. Brian got out of the plane just before it sunk. He swam to the beach and the he fell asleep, exhausted.
When Brian woke up the next morning, he was cold and hungry. The quiet boy from New York only had the clothes he was wearing and a small hatchet ( a present from his mother). Then he remembered a TV programme about how to survive in the wild. He made a shelter with grass and some branches from the trees. He used his hatchet to cut wood and start a fire. He ate fruit form the forest. He made a spear to catch fish in the lake, and he made a bow and arrow to kill rabbits and birds.
One night there was a fierce storm and the plane came to the surface of the lake. Brian swam to the plane and found some food, a knife and a small radio. He tried to call for help on the radio, but he wasn't sure how it worked.
One day, a few weeks later, Brian was fishing by the lake when he heard a noise. He could see a plane above the trees. It was looking for him!Quickly, he made a fire, and the pilot saw the smoke. After fifty-four days in the Canadian woods, Brian's amazing adventure was finally over.
