"Hopefully it'll go down some more," Brown says That's likely to happen, says Tom Kloza, head of energy analysis with the Oil Price Information Service "I wouldn't be surprised to see a year where we might see gasoline prices nationally average between, let's say, $1.85 and $2.75, which will be very similar to this year," he says Kloza says the variation will depend on refinery operations near you Gas prices tend to go up when refineries have to shut down for maintenance or switch to gasoline blends that produce less smog in the summer In addition to lower prices prompting people to drive more, Kloza says there's evidence consumers are again starting to buy bigger cars that use more gas "I would hope that people might make good choices and buy vehicles recognizing that somewhere in the life of that vehicle we're going to see high gas prices again," he says Beyond what it costs the individual driver there are environmental concerns The U.S is among countries that pledged in Paris to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and address climate change But if people start driving more because of lower prices, that will work against the goal And there are some in the oil industry predicting that low oil prices will prompt more demand by the second half of 2016 Amy Myers Jaffe, executive director of energy and sustainability at the University of California, Davis, says she is skeptical of a pickup in demand She says a big factor will be the choices that members of the huge millennial generation make She suspects they will continue to embrace things like carpooling and more efficient hybrid and electric cars "And car sharing — you know, where you don't own a car but you just rent your car when you're going skiing for the weekend All of those trends really are going to have a substantial impact — negative on the oil industry and positive on climate solutions," Myers Jaffe says She says in a world with plenty of oil reserves, that could eventually lead to an interesting outcome: low gas prices forever because demand is low But that's looking way into the future One thing Myers Jaffe suggests watching closely next year is the big oil states like Russia, Iran and Saudi Arabia Low prices can make those governments less Page 31 of 10 pages VnDoc - Tải tài liệu, văn stable She says if one of them pháp luật, biểu mẫu miễn phí goes through a significant upheaval or even falls, that could reduce world oil production dramatically and drive up prices again Part 3: Mansa Musa, one of the wealthiest people who ever lived If someone asked you who the richest people in history were, who would you name? Perhaps a billionaire banker or corporate mogul, like Bill Gates or John D Rockefeller How about African King Musa Keita I? Ruling the Mali Empire in the 14th century CE, Mansa Musa, or the King of Kings, amassed a fortune that possibly made him one of the wealthiest people who ever lived But his vast wealth was only one piece of his rich legacy When Mansa came to power in 1312, much of Europe was racked by famine and civil wars But many African kingdoms and the Islamic world were flourishing, and Mansa Musa played a great role in bringing the fruits of this flourishing to his own realm By strategically annexing the city of Timbuktu, and reestablishing power over the city of Gao, he gained control over important trade routes between the Mediterranean and the West African Coast, continuing a period of expansion, which dramatically increased Mali’s size The territory of the Mali Empire was rich in natural resources, such as gold and salt The world first witnessed the extent of Mansa Musa’s wealth in 1324 when he took his pilgrimage to Mecca Not one to travel on a budget, he brought a caravan stretching as far as the eye could see Accounts of this journey are mostly based on an oral testimony and differing written records so it’s difficult to determine the exact details But what most agree on is the extravagant scale of the excursion Chroniclers describe an entourage of tens of thousands of soldiers, civilians and slaves, 500 heralds bearing gold staffs and dressed in fine silks and many camels and horses bearing an abundance of gold bars Stopping in cities such as Cairo, Mansa Musa is said to have spent massive quantities of gold, giving to the poor, buying souvenirs, and even having mosques built along the way In fact, his spending may have destabilized the regional economy, causing mass inflation This journey reportedly took over a year, and by the time Mansa Musa returned, tales of his amazing wealth had spread to the ports of the Mediterranean Mali and its king were elevated to near legendary status, cemented by their unclusion on the 1375 Catalan Atlas One of the most important world maps of Medieval Europe, it depicted the King holding a scepter and a gleaming gold nugget Mansa Musa had literally put his empire and himself on the map But material riches weren’t the king’s only concern As a devout Muslim, he took a particular interest in Timbuktu, already a center of religion and learning prior to its annexation Upon returning from his pilgrimage, he had the great Djinguereber Mosque built there with the help of an Andalusian architect He also established a major university, further elevating the city’s reputation, and attracting scholars Page 32 of 10 pages VnDoc - Tải tài liệu, văn and students from all over the pháp luật, biểu mẫu miễn phí Islamic world Under Mansa Musa, the Empire became urbanized, with schools and mosques in hundreds of densely populated towns The king’s rich legacy persisted for generations and to this day, there are mausoleums, libraries and mosques that stand as a testament to this golden age of Mali’s history Part 4: The strongest ever storm, Hurricane Patricia nears Mexico Despite the idyllic scenery, there's a hurricane on the way, and it's expected to be the strongest hurricane recorded in the western hemisphere "Potentially catastrophic", is how Hurricane Patricia is being described The storm became a hurricane overnight, and had maximum sustained winds of about 150 miles per hour (241 kilometres per hour) Mexico's national water commission reported it has strengthened to a Category storm Patricia was last located about 225 miles (362 kilometres) south of the port of Manzanillo, where a hurricane warning has been issued A Miami-based hurricane centre said the storm could gain more strength before making landfall this evening Mexican officials and the United States government are urging people to stay away from beaches, rough seas and to take shelter Mexican emergency services have begun to prepare shelters and warned people in the states of Colima, Jalisco and Michoacan to get ready for torrential rainfalls - THE END - Page 33 of 10 pages ... ………………………………… -THE END SỞ GIÁO DỤC VÀ ĐÀO ĐỀ THI CHỌN HỌC SINH GIỎI CẤP TỈNH - NĂM HỌC: 2016- TẠO 2017 TỔ BỘ MÔN: TIẾNG Môn: TIẾNG ANH – Lớp: 12 ANH Ngày thi: 12/ 11 /2016 HƯỚNG DẪN CHẤM Page 22 of 10...
