A. Los Angeles is the largest city in the state of California and the second most populous city in the United States. The Los Angeles area, which includes the city itself and its suburbs, has a population of 13.6 million. Los Angeles's nicknames are LA and the City of Angels. Some people also call it 'La-La Land' because they think the city is full of strange and crazy people. The inhabitants of Los Angeles are called Angelenos. Los Angeles is often called 'the entertainment capital of the world.'
B. The largest and most famous entertainment industries in LA are television and film production, so the city is full of celebrities and wannabe actors who come here hoping to attract attention of some Hollywood big shot. Hollywood is still the centre of American film industry, though many studios have moved out of it. The famous Hollywood sign is known all over the world. Each letter in the sign is 15.2 m tall.
C. Los Angeles is a multicultural city. About 100 languages can be heard on its streets! It has the largest number of Mexicans outside Mexico, Koreans outside Seoul and Iranians outside Teheran. There are some areas in LA where it seems that you are not in an English-speaking country at all. Little Tokyo, for example, has Japanese Buddhist temples, Japanese shops, karaoke clubs, sushi bars and rock gardens. In Little India you can find saris and sitars. There is even Little Russia in Los Angeles where everyone speaks Russian!
D. One striking thing about LA is that it doesn't seem to have a city at all. It keeps growing and spreading in all directions, even out into the desert! It seems that nobody walks in Los Angeles; there are a lot of beautiful cars driven by beautiful people. But with so many cars LA has the dirtiest air in the US. The sunshine is hidden by the smog.
E. LA's most important street, Sunset Boulevard, is about 40 km long. Its most famous stretch, the Sunset Strip, passes through Hollywood. The Strip is known for its bright billboards and chic restaurants where the waiters are really wannabe actors or singers or scriptwriters. There are also modem apartment buildings with pools and palm trees but inside there are often six or more young hopefuls living together in two rooms to save money on rent.
F. Universal Studios in Hollywood is one of the most amazing places on earth. Not only does it have a theme park but it's also a working studio. A tram tour takes you past film sets where movies are being filmed and you can also see a lot of Hollywood history, including Alfred Hitchcock's old studio offices and the set where they filmed part of Jaws and the Jurassic Park. You can even bump into Steven Spielberg or Johnny Depp on their way to work... or to lunch (contrary to what their agents say, the stars are human, they have to eat).
G. LA is an exciting city but it's also a dangerous place to live in. There are over 1,300 street gangs in LA with over 160,000 members. Most gangs exist in poor, rundown areas and most gang members are young people. Teenagers join gangs because they want to have money and because there's nothing else to do where they live. Joining a gang gives them a sense of belonging and being a part of something important. Gangs are responsible for such crimes as theft, vandalism, drug smuggling and even murder.

When I was twelve I was one of the best pupils in my class at public school, and left it a year earlier than most boys. My parents were proud of me, of course. They wanted me to go to high school. But even then I realized that education was for the rich. I refused to go to high school. I knew that most of the boys in my class were going to work. And I decided to be one of them.
I told my parents that I needed to spend four years at high school, then six years at college before I could become a doctor. Ten years of study! Where could I get thousands of dollars for books, tuition and everything else? There were four children in my family. My mother could not work. Could my father get the money for all of us, and besides pay for my education? Of course, not. Miss Barry, an English teacher, tried to get me to go to high school, too. She said that she could hardly imagine that I would work in a factory. Tve never seen better compositions than yours, Michael,' she said. But I told her that my father was unable to support me, and that I would have to work. She asked me to promise her to study at night. I told her that I would, though I knew it was a lie. But I loved books, I was carried away by many books; I wanted very much to go to high school and college. Miss Barry presented me with a book. I thanked her for it and threw it under the bed when I returned home. I never read a page in it, or in any other book for the next five years. I told myself that I hated books, that they were lies and were different from life.
It was not easy to find my first job. I looked for it for months. Every morning I bought a newspaper and looked through the Want Ads. At last I found work. It was in a factory. The place was dark and hot; air was poisoned. The boys and girls working at the long table were wet, their faces were white and angry. There was no time for anything but work. I forgot my college hopes, I could not sleep at night. My mother saw that I was losing my health and she made me leave the job. Then a job in a shop, at a chemist’s. Jobs. Jobs. I went from one to another without plan, without hope. I was at a loss what to do. One day I stopped to listen to a man who was speaking about the struggle for a better life. The words brought hope to me and made me think, struggle and live. It was the great beginning for me.

Today many small ventures claim that robots are already here. No doubt, robots are used in manufacturing, in search and rescue missions, and in the military. However, for everyday home applications, the use of robots is restricted to entertainment, vacuum cleaners and lawn mowers. It is incredibly difficult to make robots work well. Their sensory apparatus is not perfect because sensors are expensive. This limits the range of their possibilities.
One of the most powerful social possibilities for robots is education. Nowadays, there are plenty of educational devices that aid learning. Today’s robots can interact with a child, offering educational benefits. They can read aloud in engaging voices as well as ask and answer questions. So, why not use robots to help a child learn the alphabet, teach reading or basic arithmetic?
