Adventures: Babysitting
 All this for four bucks an hour???
 I was babysitting my 2- and 6-year-old cousins, and my aunt had left spaghetti for lunch. It was a can of spaghetti, so the only thing we had to do was to warm it. She said I could put the spaghetti in the microwave. So, I put the spaghetti into a metal pan and then I put it in the microwave. I just wasn't thinking! A little bit later, the microwave caught fire.

Fortunately, my grandparents lived across the street. I called my grandpa over and he stopped the fire. The microwave was totally ruined. But since I'm family, my aunt forgave me (after some time). Katie—Baraboo, Wisconsin

A few months ago, I was babysitting a 5-year-old girl and her family's little dog. I noticed the dog was getting pretty nervous, so I thought maybe it needed to go to the bathroom. But I couldn't find the leash. The girl said it was OK to let her dog out with no leash. So I opened the door and watched the dog run with freedom—but he never stopped! It was raining, and it took us 20 minutes to catch the dog. When we finally got back, I noticed the leash was right by    the door.
 Wesley—Columbus, Ohio

Read the text carefully.
Bethany Abraham was in court again today arguing that photographs of her wedding to Mr. Steve Baker were published illegally by an Italian newspaper. The court case, which started two weeks ago, has already cost more than €2.5 million.
    Bethany Abraham, 53, married her personal trainer, Steve Baker 25, two years ago in a ceremony attended by 500 close friends. At the time, the couple received €2.5 million from a magazine for their formal wedding photographs. However, the Italian newspaper published informal photographs that were taken by one of their guests.
    Speaking in court, Ms Abraham said that the photographs in the newspaper showed her relaxing with her guests and that it was a private occasion. When she was asked why she and Mr. Baker had accepted €2 million for the official photographs she replied that she thought her fans wanted to share her happiest day.
    The Italian newspaper's editor, Anna Silvestrini, agreed that the photographs showed the bride and groom drinking at an all night party and that the newspaper had published them without permission. Mrs. Silvestrini apologized if this had hurt the feelings of the couple but she argued that they lived a very public life and that their wedding was news, not a private event. She reminded the court that Mr. Baker and Ms Abraham divorced three months ago and suggested that the court case was a waste of time.

Quiz 9
Reading comprehension Nº3
 Most internet users get a few of those irritating, unwanted, commercial messages called spam every day.  “So what‘s the big deal?” you may ask. Here are four reasons why you should worry about spam:

1.   Spammers can send thousands of identical messages with a push of the “Send” button, but you have to delete each message one by one. That can add up to a lot of wasted time.

2.   There are still very few rules to limit spam, so the problem will probably get worse. Would you like to get hundreds of spam messages every time you open your e-mail?

3.   Products in spam ads are frequently (though not always) low quality or worthless. Think about it: companies that make high- quality products don’t mind paying for advertising. However, sellers of low –quality goods would rather use spam because it costs very little.

4.   Spam messages often say that you asked to receive the message, but of course, that’s usually not true. Many spammers use e-mail addresses without permission. And even though spammers say they’ll take your name off their list if you ask them, many of them don’t.
Check  ( ) true or false for each statement
1.   Most internet users don’t need to worry about spam.       

2.   Spammers are people who get a lot of spam.

3.   There will probably be more spam in the future.

4.   The quality of spam ads is getting worse.

5.   You often can’t trust people who send spam.
