① People run street food booths around the world for a number of reasons, such as to get an opportunity to open their own business on a budget, to sell food in a lively place, or to promote their own special recipe. ② The advantage of these kinds of small businesses is that they provide opportunities for owners on smaller budgets. ③ At the same time, consumers benefit because of the variety of food that is available. ④ Special Family Recipes. ⑤ In the crowded cities in Vietnam, people usually keep their doors open, so cooking and eating food on the street is natural. ⑥ Street food businesses in Vietnam are usually owned by the family, and recipes are kept in the family. ⑦ These recipes are often handed down from the mother of the family to her children. ⑧ Meals from the Sky. ⑨ Melbourne, Australia has many small buildings and narrow alleys between them. ⑩ This gave rise to a unique restaurant called Jafflechutes, which sells sandwiches by parachute. ⑪ Three young men wanted to sell sandwiches, but they didn't have the money to rent a ground floor space. ⑫ Instead of customers coming up, they thought why not send sandwiches down? ⑬ Customers can pay online, select a time, stand on an 'X' marked outside the building, and wait for the parachute with their name on it. ⑭ Food that Moves. ⑮ In the United States, food trucks have become very popular among workers in large cities. ⑯ Food trucks can move around, and many sell food that originated in other countries like Mexico, China, Brazil, and Turkey. ⑰ For example, one of many recently popular food trucks, called Kogi, sells a mix of BBQ from Korea and food from Mexico. ⑱ Kogi's marketing strategy uses social networking to announce where it will turn up next.

① Every year thousands upon thousands of tons of electronics, from air conditioners to smartphones, are thrown out. ② This adds up to huge amounts of waste which has to be managed, especially for smaller countries like Korea. ③ Is it possible that electronics waste is actually a resource? ④ Like a mine in the ground, many people are beginning to think of electronics waste as "urban mines" because of the amount of gold, silver, copper, plastic, and steel that is waiting to be used again. ⑤ To manufacture electronics products, resources such as gold, silver, copper, glass, plastic, and steel must be mined, purchased, or produced. ⑥ As resources become harder to get, urban mines may become a more economical solution. ⑦ About one ton of rock must be dug up in a mine to get around five grams of gold; however, one ton of mobile phones may contain around 300 grams of gold, in addition to other recoverable materials. ⑧ The potential value of urban mines increases when resources become expensive and waste is not recycled. ⑨ Although electronics waste may be seen from an economic point of view, there is another side to this story: the environmental issue. ⑩ Recycling electronics waste can lower ecological damage from traditional mines and decrease air pollution from transporting materials over long distances. ⑪ Moving forward does not always mean making new things; sometimes looking at an old problem from a new perspective is the simplest solution.

① At a critical time in my life, when I had lost a job and was going through a period of extreme challenge and trial, I found myself in a cycle of cutting back, letting go, and giving away. ② I cleaned out my closets and donated bags of clothes to the Salvation Army, where soldiers and officers provide aid to the homeless and the poor. ③ I pulled weeds from my garden and lawn, cut my hair shorter, and offered more of my time to work with a nonprofit organization. ④ It was a difficult time for me but a healing one. ⑤ It signaled the end of one season of my life and the beginning of another. ⑥ Those physical actions were just the outer signs of what was taking place within me - clearing out the old and getting rid of the mess. ⑦ Slowly but surely, I created an open space, which allowed wonderful opportunities and needed changes to appear in my life.

① It is estimated that ninety percent of the rubies and sapphires on the world market today undergo heat treatment, a permanent process widely accepted by the gem trade. ② Sapphires are so common in Sri Lanka that the lightest, least valuable ones were once used to decorate rock gardens or buried under the posts of village homes for a blessing. ③ These low-quality sapphires, known as gueda, were not suitable for setting into jewelry. ④ But in the 1970s, Thai gem dealers discovered a heat treatment process that transformed the worthless gueda into valuable gems. ⑤ By "cooking" the stones at high temperatures, they performed something almost magical. ⑥ The titanium melted and mixed better with the iron, deepening the blue color of the gueda. ⑦ The Thais then experimented on different colored sapphires and rubies, and learned that a valuable sapphire or ruby could be made even more valuable through a similar process.

① It is sometimes argued that the health of a society can be viewed in terms of energy: when energy consumption is greater than energy supply, the society falls apart. ② The Internet, it turns out, may be able to help us in this regard. ③ To see how, consider the significant benefit of switching from traditional mail to e-mail. ④ As recently as a few decades ago, information was stored not in computers but on endless sheets of paper. ⑤ Beyond convenience, it may be that the technological shift from paper to computers is critical to the future. ⑥ Of course, there are energy costs to the thousands of computers that run the Internet. ⑦ But these costs are far less than the forests of trees and lakes of oil that would be sacrificed for the same quantity of information achieved with paper storage.

① The word "philosopher" comes from the Greek words meaning "love of wisdom. ② "The Western tradition in philosophy spread from Ancient Greece across large parts of the world, influenced by ideas from the East. ③ The kind of wisdom that philosophy values is based on argument, reasoning, and asking questions. ④ Philosophy rejects believing something simply because someone important has claimed it's true. ⑤ Similarly, for Socrates, wisdom was not about knowing facts or possessing skills. ⑥ He believed wisdom required understanding the true nature of our existence. ⑦ Philosophers today are doing more or less what Socrates was doing. ⑧ They are working to answer some of the most important questions we can ask ourselves about the nature of reality and how we should live. ⑨ Unlike Socrates, though, modern philosophers have the benefit of nearly two and a half thousand years of past philosophy to guide them.

▢ claim: 주장하다, 요구하다

① In warfare, superior technology often makes the difference between victory and defeat. ② In the well-documented battle between Francisco Pizarro and Atahuallpa, vastly superior technology enabled 168 Spanish soldiers to kill 80,000 Indian soldiers. ③ Pizarro, most of all, had his scouts make use of horses for obtaining military information about the war. ④ In doing so, he had a significant tactical advantage over Atahuallpa because his men swiftly told him everything he needed to know about Atahuallpa's army. ⑤ Pizarro also provided horses for warriors equipped with armor for fighting in order to ensure their mobility. ⑥ Further, Atahuallpa's Indian foot soldiers and their primitive clubs were no match for the powerful Spanish soldiers. ⑦ Thus, although the number pointed heavily to an Indian victory, it was ultimately the Spaniards and their technology who were victorious.

① Throughout much of the Cold War era, television and radio broadcasting was a narrow field, because the technologies available for broadcasting were limited. ② Governments either directly ran most television broadcasting or tightly controlled it. ③ This began to change first in the United States with the introduction of cable television, which could carry many more channels than could be broadcast over the air. ④ Then, in the 1980s, other versions of multichannel television began to spread around the world - thanks largely to the falling cost of satellites. ⑤ There is some irony in this. ⑥ The Cold War drove both the Soviet Union and America to put smaller and smaller, stronger and stronger, and cheaper and cheaper satellites into space in order to spy on each other. ⑦ That same technology, though, made it possible for television signals to be broadcast cheaply.

▢ available: 이용할 수 있는, 이용 가능한 
▢ era: 시대, 시절 
▢ introduction: 도입, 소개 
▢ irony: 반어법, 풍자

① If you have room for a deck or patio garden, planting one might not only make your grocery shopping easier, but also add a great deal of satisfaction to your life. ② For example, I know a couple who decided some years ago they'd rather spend time on their deck tending their plants than running to the market every time they need a tomato. ③ They get a large amount of satisfaction from being the source of much of the produce that goes on their table. ④ What little work they do to tend this simple garden gives them a lot of enjoyment, and they love the feeling of being in touch with nature. ⑤ Also, they've made a point of involving their teenage son in their gardening routine. ⑥ Not only has he been a big help to them, but he has developed an appreciation for plants and nature he might not otherwise have had. ⑦ They've come to treasure the chance to work together as a family at an activity they all enjoy.

▢ involve: 관련되다, 참여하다
