Answer questions 1-5 which are based on the reading passage below

All You Need To Know About Snow

Types of Snowfall

Snow is formed due to certain weather conditions in which an extratropical cyclone has formed. Extratropical cyclones bring extremely dangerous weather conditions, like high winds and heavy rain or snow, and are often known as windstorms in Europe. The band of precipitation associated with their warm front is often very substantial. When the warm front and cold front collide, snow can result on the poleward side of the precipitation band; i.e., on the northern side of the Northern Hemisphere and on the southern part of the Southern Hemisphere.

Lake-effect snow is another kind of commonly seen snowfall. Even though the name suggests a particular correspondence of this type of precipitation to lake features, in fact, all narrow bands of water may generate it. Lake-effect snow appears when the temperature of water is considerably higher than the air temperature of a cold front progressing over a large water mass. Warm and moist air is then attracted upward at a relatively fast rate, condensing to form vertically oriented clouds. If the difference in temperature between the body of water and the air above it is significant, say, 13o C  or more, this can result in heavy and prolonged snowfall. 

Hilly and mountainous areas are also likely to experience heavy snowfall. Accumulations typically occur on the windy side of the mountain as rain is 'squeezed out' of the warm moist air as it is forced to move up the slopes; the moisture condenses upon approaching the colder air found at high altitudes and heavy snowfall can then occur if ground conditions are sufficiently cold. 

How Snow Is Formed

At extremely low temperatures in the atmosphere, tiny supercooled cloud droplets and snow crystals are formed. Temperatures lower than - 35o C are required for this supercool moisture to freeze by itself. An aerosol particle like clay, desert dust or an ice nucleus is needed for the freezing to start in warmer clouds. 

Once a water drop has frozen, it grows in the supersaturated environment of the cloud. Eventually,  due to its volume, the cloud will not be able to contain the ice crystal anymore. At this point the ice crystal will start to fall to the ground and, if it is not melted by warmer air at lower altitudes, it will do so as snow. The ice crystals that fall on the ground are actually transparent. Hollow imperfections in them mean that light is scattered and they appear white in colour owing to diffuse reflection of the whole spectrum of light.

Answer the question 1-5 which are based on the reading passage below

Transition Care

Transition care is for older individuals who have been receiving medical treatment but require more assistance to recuperate and time to determine the best place for them to live in the long run. Only the hospital can provide you with transition care.

Transition care is centered on the individual's objectives and therapies, and it is only provided for a short period. It provides access to a set of services that could include:

  • Physiotherapy (exercise, mobility, strength, and balance) and podiatry are examples of low-intensity therapy (foot care)
  • Having access to a social worker is a big plus.
  • Clinical nursing assistance, such as wound care
  • personal attention

Who gives transition care service?

Transition care is generally offered by non-government agencies and is financed by the government. If your circumstances allow, it is assumed you'll contribute to the expense of your treatment.

The organization that provides your transition care services sets the daily care fees (your service provider). They should explain these charges to you, and the amount charged should be included in your contract with the service provider. Daily, the cost is determined.

Where do I receive it?

Transition care is available in the comfort of your own home or in a 'live-in' setting. This setting could be a separate wing of a hospital or a section of an existing aged-care home or health institution.

If you're receiving subsidized residential care in an aged-care facility but need to go somewhere else for transition care, your place will be held in the aged-care home until you return.

Answer the question 1-9 which are based on the reading passage below

Crop Circle

For many years, the crop circle phenomena has perplexed and confused humanity. The drawings emerge out of nowhere, meticulously,  arranged among fields of food grains. Some are the size of football fields and are extremely difficult to design and construct. Others are more rudimentary and smaller. Crop circles are what we call them, yet most of them aren't circular. Some are extended abstract designs, some mimic insects or other known forms, while still others are complex patterns made up of lines, circles, and other shapes. The majority appear overnight, while it has been claimed that a handful has appeared in broad daylight within a half-hour. Crop Circles have been spotted all around the globe. In recent years, approximately 10,000 cases from various nations have been documented. In December of 1973, the first crop circles occurred in Australia. In a wheat field in Wokurna, a town southeast of Adelaide, a weird circular mark formed. In an adjacent outfield, seven swirled circles up to 14 feet in diameter appeared. An astonishing series of circles, varying in diameter from a few inches to a few feet, formed in a wheat field west of Melbourne in December 1989. A total of 90 crop circles were discovered. During the summer of 1980, the best-documented and greatest modern spread of crop circles began in southern England. 112 circles were established by the end of 1988. At the time, 305 circles had been reported worldwide, with a total of 305 by the end of 1989. In 1990, the total number of newly established circles surpassed 1,000. There were 200 to 300 circles reported in 1991. Crop circles have been discovered in over 30 nations, including Canada, the former Soviet Union, Japan, and the United States of America. The stalks around the rings stayed entirely erect in nine out of ten circles, while damaged stems flattened to the ground and swirled. Crop circles, on the other hand, have become far more mathematically complicated over time. Multiple circles, bars, triangles, rings, and spurs were used in the patterns. There were also pictorial images. While on an early morning walk in the countryside, eyewitnesses reported seeing strange lights and hearing unidentified sounds. Later that day, a crop circle appeared. At the site of some crop circles, high-pitched warbling noises have been recorded. A peculiar glow or darker coloration has been spotted in the sky around a crop circle on multiple occasions. And the electrical power of tiny planes flying overhead has been shut off quickly in several instances. As far as we can tell, the random energies do not appear to damage animals or insects. Instead of flying directly over a crop of circle pattern, a flock of birds split up and flew around the parameter. Crop circles have sparked a lot of interest among scientists, who have spent a lot of time studying them. They look for signs of human involvement in the circle-making process, examine the circle's area for geographical anomalies, and compare the grain of the field inside and outside the circles for variances. Many grain samples have been studied by Dr. W.C. Levengood of BLT Research in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and dramatic alterations at the cellular level of crop circle plants have been confirmed time after time. Elongated cells and blown outgrowth nodes characterize the plants in front of the circles. When seeds from circular plants are sown, they often demonstrate accelerated development rates, resulting in plants that are significantly distinct in appearance. Vortex-like energy appears to cause the plants to whirl down, flattening the design into the earth in several cases. Whatever energy is present, it has no effect on the plant's growth. They continue to respond normally to the sun, rising upward over several days after the circle appears. In several of the formations, Duke University's Micheal Corost discovered instances of short-lived radionuclides in the top layer of soil. A British government laboratory discovered lower nitrogen levels, a lower nematode population, and lower water content in the soil formation. Other abnormalities identified by researchers include strange embedded magnetic particles and burnt flesh. Some of the plant stalks within the circles show signs of having microwave-heated quickly. Crop circles have been explained by scientists as the consequence of natural processes. The 'Plasma Vortex Notion,' which is widely recognized by mainstream scientists and academics, is one such popular theory. Dr. Terence Mearden's theory proposes that electrified air on the sides of the hills forms micro tornados that slam into the ground, forming circles. According to the theory, the electrified air would cause a light to appear above the circle, which would explain UFO sightings. Despite widespread acceptance, this idea has come under scrutiny as a result of the more elaborate and sophisticated crop circle patterns that have appeared since 1991. According to another idea, all circles are hoaxes or practical jokes. It is unreasonable to suppose that all crop circles are fakes or created for the purpose of publicity. Many crop circles emerged before the phenomena gained widespread public attention. When crop circles are investigated, they reveal unusual mathematical patterns.
