READING

a) There are more rich people in the world today than in the past. Many of these people give money to charities.
Some people believe that these rich business people could give more than just money. For example they could help
charities to be good businesses. Charities need to make money and use it in the best way for them, like any other
business. A business expert can help them.

b) Office social events are popular in America, but not so much in Britain. Companies think social events are a good
way for people to meet informally. Organising picnics, however, has some disadvantages. For example, the weather can
be bad, the children can be noisy, and some people do not like eating outside with insects flying around. Other people
are worried that the food is not fresh, which could make them ill.

c) So you like to keep your desk tidy? Some people do and some people don’t. Which is best: a tidy desk or an untidy
one? Research tells us that there are usually two types of people: the filer who files documents immediately and the
piler who leaves documents all over the desk. It is interesting that people who have untidy desks are not always
disorganised. They usually know where everything is.
