It Happened in Baghdad…
In November of 2004, a group of American soldiers entered an empty house in Baghdad. They were ready to attack the source of the noise coming from around the corner. What they found, however, wasn’t a dangerous enemy but a puppy. Although it is against the law, the soldiers adopted the dog, named him Lava and decided to take him with them to the USA – an almost impossible task! Dogs need vaccinations to cross borders, but the American military vets wouldn’t even look at civilian dogs, and Iraqi vets weren’t willing to help either. Many attempts to get Lava out failed, but the soldiers never gave up and Lava finally found a new home in California.

Elephants in Russia
When one circus carriage suddenly caught fire during an international tour in the Novosibirsk region, Russia, two elephants were taken out of the burning carriage into the bitter cold. In temperatures of -40°C, the animals soon suffered frostbite’ to their ears. The circus keepers decided to warm the elephants up with two glasses of vodka mixed with warm water. It helped, and the elephants started “roaring happily as if they were in the jungle”, one keeper said. Like with humans, alcohol can make animals feel warmer, but it lowers the body temperature, scientists warn. However, the Novosibirsk zoo director said that the elephants were not harmed or intoxicated and that with the alcohol they escaped certain death.

Přečtěte si článek o divadelní hře The Mousetrap od Agathy Christie. Na základě informací v textu vyberte k úlohám 39-43 vždy jednu správnou odpověd’ A-D.
In 1947, Queen Mary asked for a radio play to be written for her 80th birthday by Agatha Christie. The play was broadcast on May 30, 1947, and it was called Three Blind Mice. Christie adapted the radio play into a theatre play four years later and although she
was quite happy with the original title of the play, she renamed it The Mousetrap. The name had to be changed because of protests by another author, Emile Littler, who had produced a theatre play also named Three Blind Mice before the Second World War. The
suggestion to call it The Mousetrap came from Christie’s son-in-law Anthony Hicks, who borrowed the idea from Shakespeare’s play Hamlet.
Agatha Christie gave all the rights to the play to her grandson, Matthew Prichard, as a present for his 9th birthday. In 1956, British film producer John Woolf bought the rights to the film from Prichard. Nevertheless, Woolf had to agree to the condition that he wouldn’t make a film version earlier than 6 months after the last performance of the play on stage. Woolf died in 1999 and The Mousetrap was still playing at St Martin’s Theatre in London, where it is still played at present. With its 24,500 performances, it is the longest-running show in history. And, obviously, there won’t be a film version until at least 6 months after the last stage performance in London.
Christie herself did not expect The Mousetrap to run for such a long time. In her autobiography, she reports a conversation that she had with Peter Saunders, a theatre producer, right after the first performance in 1951. He expected that the play would not even be performed for twelve months. Agatha Christie disagreed and gave her play only about eight months on stage. However, in September 1957, The Mousetrap broke the record for the longest-running play in the West End.
Since the beginning, more than 10 million people have seen this classic murder mystery, where at the end of each performance, audiences are asked not to tell the identity of the killer to anyone outside the theatre.The producers and actors want to make sure that the end of the play stays a secret for future audiences. Christie was always very angry when the endings of her works were revealed in newspapers.
The play inspired producer Stephen Waley-Cohen to start a theatrical education charity called The Mousetrap Theatre Project. The project is for young people from poor families or with disabilities. With the help of the project, they can see the best theatre performances live and don’t only learn about theatre plays as a part of a school education programme.

The True Story behind the “Afghan Mona Lisa”
Sharbat Gula was a 13-year-old girl from Afghanistan when her face (49) (C) appeared) on the cover of National Geographic magazine. It was 28 years (50) ) (B) ago) and the picture immediately received international attention. Her eyes were bright green and she was wearing (51) (B) a) red scarf over her hair.
Photographer Steve McCurry took the photograph when Sharbat, (52) (A) whose) parents were killed during the Soviet war in Afghanistan, was living with the rest of her family in a refugee camp’ in Pakistan.”There’s real emotion and real beauty (53) (C) in) the picture;’ Mr McCurry says. “It shows the situation of a girl who suddenly lost her home and (54) (B) had) to escape from her country because of the horrible war. She ended up in a refugee camp (55) (B) many) miles away. The picture shows a poor girl with a dirty face but with strength and courage in her eyes.”
Ever since the picture (56) (B) was published) in 1985, the magazine has received thousands of questions about the girl. Mr McCurry returned to the region more than ten times (57) (A) to) look for her. Unfortunately, he didn’t know (58) (B) anything) about the girl; he didn’t even know her name! But he never stopped searching the refugee camps, (59) (A) although) the search often seemed hopeless. In 2002, he managed to find a man who knew Sharbat’s family. A couple of days later, the man returned with the girl’s brother.
His eyes were as beautiful (60) (C) as) Sharbat’s. Finally, Mr McCurry and a team from National Geographic met Sharbat in her (61) (C) native) Afghan village near the Pakistani border.
“It was a miracle that we found her. I somehow expected the girl from this photograph to walk through the door, and I was (62) (B) shocked) when a 30-year-old woman entered the room,”McCurry says. Sharbat Gula herself didn’t know about the fame of her picture. She had never seen it before the team arrived. Today, Mr McCurry is still in contact with Sharbat; he wants (63) (C) to make) sure she’s all right and that she gets money for the picture known all over the world.
