WHY CAN’T YOU GET A SONG OUT OF YOUR HEAD?
An iPhone application can teach you a foreign language by using melodious music and rhythmic repetitions of essential words and phrases. This combination causes the new words to literally ring in your ears, making learning a language 1.1. (EFFORT) effortless and enjoyable. The application has been based on the concept of earworms. The term earworms refers to 1.2. (CATCH) catchy tunes of the songs which you hear a few times and then just can’t get out of your head. Rhythm and words, i.e. songs and verses, have always been a very powerful memory aid. 1.3. (ADVERT) advertisers know only too well how powerful music can be in getting the message across with brainwashing jingles and soundbites.
The idea is as simple as it is old. Before the age of writing, ancient historical events were presented in verse and song forms so that they were easy to 1.4. (MEMORY) memorize. In his book Songlines, Bruce Chatwin gives the example of Australian Aborigines who were able to navigate their way across hundreds of miles of desert to their ancestral hunting grounds without maps. How was it possible? Thanks to the 1.5. (PRECISE) precision of the descriptions given in the lyrics of their traditional songs.

If he had had his way, Peter McDermott thought, he would have fired the chief house detective weeks ago. But he had not had his way and now, once more, Mr Ogilvie, the obese ex-policeman was missing when he was needed most. McDermott leaned down from his husky six-and-a-half feet and jiggled the desk telephone impatiently.
‘Fifteen things break loose at once,’ he told the woman by the window of the wide, woodpanelled office, ‘and as usual nobody can find him.’
Christine Francis glanced at her wristwatch. It showed a few minutes before 11 p.m. ‘There’s a bar in Baronne Street you might try.’
McDermott nodded. ‘I’ve already checked the bar. He’s not there.’
‘Our Mr Ogilvie makes his own rules,’ Christine said. ‘It’s been this way for years. We can’t do anything about it as long as Warren Trent allows it.’
‘You’re right,’ he acknowledged. ‘I once tried to reorganize our detective force, and my ears were properly pinned back. I was put right back in my place immediately.’
She said quietly, ‘I didn’t know that.’
He looked at her quizzically. ‘I thought you knew everything.’
And usually she did. As personal assistant to Warren Trent, the unpredictable and irritable manager and owner of New Orleans’ largest hotel, Christine was familiar with the hotel’s inner secrets as well as its day-to-day affairs. She knew, for example, that Peter, although employed just a few months ago, was already promoted to assistant general manager and was virtually running the hotel, though at an ungenerous salary and with limited authority. She knew the reasons behind that, too. They were in a file marked Confidential, brought to her by Warren Trent himself on the day of Peter McDermott’s arrival in the hotel, and involved his
Christine asked, ‘What is breaking loose?’
McDermott gave a cheerful grin which contorted his rugged, almost ugly features.
‘We have a complaint about a night party on the eleventh floor; on the ninth the Duchess of Croydon claims the Duke has been insulted by a room-service waiter; one of the guests called to say he can’t sleep because of somebody moaning horribly in 1439; and the night manager is off sick, with the other two house officers otherwise engaged. Besides which, I noticed a leak on the second floor next to the elevator, so we need to have it fixed before one of the guests finds it a reason for a major complaint.’
‘Do you have a name for the room where the moaning is?’ Christine asked.
He shook his head and lifted the phone. ‘I’ll find out. Probably someone having a nightmare, but we’d better make sure.’
‘All right, thanks.’ McDermott scribbled a name and hung up.
‘Albert Wells, Montreal.’
‘I know him,’ Christine said. ‘A nice little man who stays here every year. I’ll check that one out.’
The telephone shrilled and McDermott recognized the flat nasal voice of Herbie Chandler.
Chandler, like Ogilvie, was another of the hotel’s old-timers.
‘Could you investigate the complaint about the night party on the eleventh?’ Peter asked. As he had half expected, there was an immediate protest. ‘Never mind the argument, I want the complaint attended to. And send a bellboy with a pass key to meet Miss Francis at the reception.’ He replaced the telephone before there could be any more discussion.
‘Let’s go.’ His hand touched Christine’s shoulders slightly. ‘I have to handle the Duke and Duchess incident. The relations between the hotel and the Croydons are excellent, so I think a personal apology will do.’

THAT FATEFUL DAY
In its 183-year history the annual Oxford-Cambridge race along the Thames has become more than a highlight of the sporting calendar. It has become the occasion for another contest, between those who view it as a grand spectacle and those who condemn it as an emblem of a class- and tradition-bound Britain. The latter used to protest by thrusting their banners at the television cameras that broadcast the race. 8.1.**C. However, despite such minor incidents, things always came off peacefully enough. Then came that fateful Saturday in April 2012, when the whole affair ended more in frustration and tears than in celebration. On that fateful day a chain of events distorted the apparently indefectible image of this well-established competition. First, an Australian who had posted an essay on the Internet beforehand titled “Snobbery Leads to Tyranny” jumped into the river. He ducked his head under the water and swam directly into the path of the two boats. 8.2.**F. The churning oars of the Oxford team narrowly missed hitting him. Then the protester resurfaced with a big smile across his face. Though no damage was done, his presence caused
sufficient alarm for the race umpire to wave a red flag to halt the contest. After a half-hour delay, during which the protester was pulled out of the river onto a police launch, handcuffed and charged with disturbing public order, the race was restarted where it had been halted, only to have the two boats collide immediately afterwards. 8.3.**B. The clash took the tip off one of the Oxford rowers’ oars. As a result, the crew was left with just seven effective contestants out of the starting eight. This incident allowed Cambridge to post an easy victory. Some on the Oxford side complained later that the umpire should have ordered a second restart. But that was not the end of the day’s drama. At the finish line, Zoe de Toledo – Oxford’s first female crew member in 12 years, furiously protested against the race umpire’s
ruling blaming her for the clash of oars. 8.4. A. In the confusion she stirred up, minutes went by before anybody realized that one of the oarsmen had collapsed after the race.** Medics worked to aid the contestant − Alex Woods − giving him oxygen and then sending him in an ambulance to Charing Cross Hospital, where he was kept overnight. The usual post-race celebrations were abandoned, with no trophy presentation, no speeches and no champagne.

Luckily, this story has a happy ending. Almost. Only after four weeks of messing about 9.5. ... . There was light! For all of 30 seconds the town of Cheltenham came out of a blackout, until the fuse promptly blew.
Finally, to everybody’s 9.6. ... , six weeks after the first report, at least 12 separate visits, and thousands of pounds of taxpayers’ money spent, the road was back from the dark ages.
