|A glacier is a mountain of ice that moves slowly over land or in the sea. To get an ideaof how it looks like, fill a glass with water and put a cube of ice in it. That is how a glacier looks like in the sea, with most of it submerged in water.Now imagine that the ice is in the shape of a pyramid, with only the triangular top peeping out of the water. Dip your finger perpendicularly into the glass and move ittowards the ice slowly. You will notice that your finger will touch the ice under the water before you get near to the portion above the water.In the past, many ships were sunk in the sea because by the spotted the ships spotted a glacier, they were already too near it to steer the ship away to safety. Probably, the part of the ice under the water would already have made a hole in the hull of the ship. Now, with the help of radars during navigation, a glacier can be detected under water, and as such, disasters can be avoided.|

|In some countries, a machine known as a lie detector is used to help in criminal investigation. The lie detector is used to determine whether/if the person involved in the crime is telling the truth or not.How does such a machine work ? When a person tells an untruth, certain body reactions may occur . For example, his heart may beat faster and his face may flush. His blood pressure may also rise and his breathing may become quicker. It is thetask/job of the lie detector to record these reactions. Normally, the machine wouldrecord reactions which the subject has no control over , such as his blood pressure, respiration or pulse.
How reliable are these machines ? Some countries do not use lie detectorsas/because they feel that these machines are not totally reliable. in fact, the successrate of the lie detector depends greatly on the sensitivity of the machine.
The ability of the person conducting the test is also very important. The examiner must know specifically what kinds of questions to ask his subjects. The examiner would usually familiarize himself with the details of the case first. He then asks his subjects questions that are totally unrelated to the case. The answers to these questions would help the examiner gauge what the ‘normal’ reactions of the subjectare . After this, the examiner would ask questions of two kinds — those that are important to the case and those which have nothing to do with the case at all.

|Jerry made his way to the front of the crowd to take a look at the scientist. She was talking of a place called the Galapagos Islands.”For a few million years, this was an island inhabited by reptiles and birds. Therewere few predators and no mammals. Until humans arrived in 1535, the place was a paradise. When people came in their ships, rats escaped from the ships onto the island. They ate a lot of bird eggs and reptilian infants. Goats and cows were reared in the island to provide fresh meat for the humans. These animals multiplied and grazed the whole island bare.”The scientist continues, sounding fierce: “Sailors discovered tortoises could live for up to a year and a half without food or water, and claimed that their meat tasted like chicken. Tortoise populations were wiped out. Hundreds of thousands of tortoises were stacked upside down in ship holds. The females were especially easily caught as they wandered down from the lush highlands to lay their eggs in the lowlands. As people settled on the islands, their livestock and pets ran wild, hunting the birds and young reptiles fearlessly. These actions threatened the survival of the natural inhabitants of the Galapagos Islands.”|
