Wind
Wind, come softly.
Don't break the shutters of the windows.
Don't scatter the papers.
Don't throw down the books on the shelf,
There, look what you did - you threw them all down.
You tore the pages of the books.
You brought rain again,
You're very clever at poking fun at weaklings.
Frail crumbling houses, crumbling doors, crumbling rafters, crumbling wood, crumbling bodies, crumbling lives, crumbling hearts the wind god winnows and crushes them all
He won't do what you tell him.
So, come, let's build strong homes,
Let's join the doors firmly.
Practice to firm the body.
Make the heart steadfast.
Do this, and the wind will be friends with us.
The wind blows out weak fires.
He makes strong fires roar and flourish.
His friendship is good.
We praise him every day. wind, come softly.
-Subramania Bharati

A zoo employee was bitten recently by a large poisonous snake called an African puff adder. He was trying to put the snake into a bag so that it could be moved to a new snake house. The snake handler was wearing thick gloves and thick boots, but the adder still bit him in his arm. The handler squeezed the snake's neck tightly, forcing the snake to withdraw its fangs. He then put the snake into the bag and tied the bag.
He called the emergency services to report that the adder had bitten him; when doctors arrived at the new snake house, they could not find the snake or man. They started walking back toward the old snake house. A few moments later, they found the handler lying unconscious on a pathway. Curiously, the bag with the snake still in it was covering the man's head and part of his chest.
The paramedics handed the bag to another zoo employee, who delivered the snake to its new home. They then transported the handler to the city hospital. Later, a hospital spokesman said that the handler was in good condition. He said that viper bites can cause a lot of damage in the immediate area of the bite if not treated properly and quickly, but it looked like this man would recover completely.
The zoo director said that this particular adder had a nasty reputation. This was the fifth time in six years that it had managed to bite someone. Fortunately, the previous victims also recovered fully. Although the penultimate one now has a fear of snakes which is why the new handler that was bitten was working with the snakes. In the future, the director joked, they might call the bomb disposal unit to handle the snake.
The handler was found _________.

A waiting near the gate house
B in the old snake house
C in the new snake house
D unconscious on a pathway

In 2014 the islanders of the Isle of Head chose altogether to stop government interference on their small island. They decided to purchase the whole island as a consortium now known as 'The Isle of Head Organisation', or TIHO for short. They now, like many other islands off the west coast, can set their own standard of living using a village tribunal system. In fact, this was what they were after originally. This way of living is not unfamiliar, but what they have decided to do on their island is somewhat quirky.
Head currently has limited access to the mainland and as the population shrank as too did the number of visitors; consequently, there is no need for frequent ferries. Although, it's not unknown for there to be multiple sailings at the weekend which people like greatly for the ease of access. That combined with a journey time of just over 25 minutes on calm seas and sometimes over 1-hour per sailing on other days has meant that the service operates on a 'need to' basis and sails only once there are enough passengers waiting to make the crossing worthwhile.
The village has several highly skilled citizens which has proved useful as they have decided that they will, in the most part, be self-sufficient. Central to this philosophy is the principle that they will educate their own primary and secondary school pupils and that the three 20-year olds will study together communicating through the web with colleges and universities elsewhere. It has been raised as a potential issue and there is an inquiry ongoing to check that the education the islanders get is of a suitable standard.
The Islanders don't _________.

A happen to need any books
B want any help from the mainland
C desire the usage of mobile connections
D think they need any more ferries
