Experts predict myopia, or nearsightedness, will reach epidemic proportions by the end of the decade, with over a third of the world’s population requiring glasses or contact lenses. However, if a team of ophthalmologists from a Medical Center in Jerusalem have their way, the crisis may be averted with special “nanodrops” created to correct refractive errors responsible for nearsightedness, farsightedness, or blurred vision.
The professor of electrical engineering and nanophotonics at Bar-Ilan University, who worked on the project, says the procedure requires three simple steps. Prospective patients will begin by using a smartphone app to measure their eyes’ refractive index. A laser pattern, based on the app’s calculations, will then be created and projected onto the surface of each eye. The final step will be to put a predetermined number of the drops, which contain “special nanoparticles,” into each eye.
The rese archer explains, “ These nanoparticles go into the shallow laser patterns generated on the surface of the eye and change the refraction index inside those patterns. This corrects the visual problem the user has.” The best part is, the procedure can be conducted at home without the presence of a medical doctor. The team leader asserts the technique is far less painful and invasive than laser surgery.
It is a new concept for correcting refractory problems; the treatment has thus far only been successfully tested on animals. The team, which hopes to start human trials soon, believes it will take at least two years before the revolutionary eye drops will be available on the market. In addition to ensuring they are safe and effective for humans, the researchers still have to determine the dosage needed to correct the different conditions and also, how frequently the treatment will have to be administered to keep the patient’s eyesight sharp.
Researchers say, the rise in myopia in kids can be attributed to the increasingly large amount of time spent on computers and phones. Studies have proven that just two to three hours of daily sunshine exposure can reduce vision-related issues dramatically. So, set aside your digital devices and head out for a bike ride, run, or stroll. It will not only help you see better, but also make you healthier!

In January, 20XX, as Amazon Inc.’s stock soared to an all-time high, its founder and CEO Jeff Bezos, who owns 17% of the company, dethroned Microsoft billionaire Bill Gates to become the world’s richest person. Since then, the company’s stock has risen an additional 20 percent, increasing the entrepreneur’s net worth from $105 billion to $125 billion! To put it in perspective, that is more than the GDP of over 125 of the world’s 195 countries.
The incredible journey began in 1994 when Bezos was working as a software engineer for a global investment management company. One day, while surfing the Internet for new investment ideas, he read that the World Wide Web usage was increasing by 2,300 percent every month! The impressive statistic gave him an idea — what if he could use this fast-growing new medium to sell goods to the public? Though pursuing his dream would mean leaving his nice job that came with a sixfigure salary, the then 30-year-old was convinced he was on the right track.
After considering about 20 potential products, including software and CD’s, Bezos decided to sell books. They were easy to package, hard to damage, and most importantly, his virtual store could offer all of the millions of book titles available, something even the biggest physical bookstores were unable to accommodate. After scouting out locations across the US, the entrepreneur, and his wife MacKenzie, chose the Seattle, Washington metropolitan area for their new venture. In addition to being home to a big pool of high-tech talent that would be needed to build the online store, it was also close to Ingram Book Group’s Oregon warehouse.
Bezos and five employees began building the world’s first virtual bookstore inside the garage of his home. The first order of business was to find a suitable name. After his first choice was misunderstood, he eventually decided on Amazon.
In July 1995, opened its “doors” to customers with over a million book titles. They initially rang a bell to celebrate every sale. However, the fun tradition had to be abandoned within a few months as book sales escalated sharply. After expanding the offerings to include CD’s and videos, Bezos sent out 1,000 e-mails to existing customers asking them what else they would like delivered to their doors.
In 2005, recognising that customers wanted their orders quickly and without paying exorbitant rates, Bezos introduced the subscription-based Amazon Prime. In 2012, he made the $99 annual membership even more attractive with Amazon Video which, in addition to streaming movies and television shows, also produces original shows. In 2017, the company made its first foray into physical stores with the acquisition of leading organic grocery chain Whole Foods. And Bezos is not done yet — in January 2018, Amazon announced it was partnering with two other companies to form a single company to provide U.S. workers and families with better health insurance options than what is currently available.

36. Choose the best title or heading for the passage.
A. A Shop Like a Jungle
B. Journey of Amazon
C. Get Rich Quick
D. Setting Up a Global Company
Answer : B

37. What industry did Bezos work in before setting up
A. Literary
B. Sales and marketing
C. Financial
D. Internet
Answer : C

38. Why did Bezos email his customers?
A. To sell fewer CDs and more books
B. To get bigger subscriptions
C. To develop better marketing
D. To get more ideas
Answer : D

39. Amazon has moved from a bookshop to _______.
