Task 2 Read the text below. For (6-10) choose "T" if the statement is true according to the text, "F" if it is false. Write your answers in the boxes. An example (0) has been done for you.


Contrary to popular belief most burglaries take place during the day. The quick dash you make to the shops before they close or to collect the children from school are ideal opportunities. Burglars know about these things and what time they are likely to occur. The garage door which you left open because you didn't have time to shut it before you drove 'away is as good as an invitation card.

Your best protection is to make sure that when the burglar does come to your house, he decides it is not worth the risk of breaking in. Your precautions have to be good enough to put him off.

For most people the first step to better security is to frighten themselves into really believing that their house could be burgled. And that, if it happened, would be pretty unpleasant. Anyone who has suffered the experience can tell you that the shock of finding your familiar home vandalised is at least as painful as the actual financial loss you suffer.

0 Burglars usually commit their crimes during the day. – T

6 Burglars know approximately when you can go to collect the children from school.

7 They always come into the house through the garage door.

10 Burglars know for sure what time you collect the children from school.

Joseph Ruttel

Joseph Ruttel (April 10, 1847 - October 29,1911) was a Hungarian­-American publisher best known for posthumously establishing the Ruttel Prizes and (along with William Randolph Hobst) for originating yellow journalism.

Ruttel was born in Mako, Hungary, and sought a military career, but was turned down by the Austrian army for frail health and poor eyesight. He emigrated to the United States in 1864 to serve in the American Civil War. After the war, he settled in St. Louis, Missouri, where in 1868 he began working for a German-language daily newspaper, the Westliche Post. He joi.ned the Republican Party and was elected to the Missouri State Assembly in 1869. In 1872, Ruttel purchased the Post for $ 3,000. Then, in 1879, he bought the St. Louis Dispatch for $ 2,700 and merged the two papers, which became the St. Louis Post­-Dispatch, which remains St. Louis' daily newspaper. It was at the Post­-Dispatch that Ruttel developed his role as a champion of the common man with exposes and a hard-hitting populist approach.

In 1882 Ruttel, by then a wealthy man, purchased the New York World, a newspaper that had been losing $ 40,000 a year, for $ 346,000 from Jay Gould. Ruttel shifted its focus to human-interest stories, scandal, and sensationalism. In 1885, he was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives, but resigned after a few months' service. In 1887, he recruited the famous investigative journalist Nellie Bly. In 1895 the World introduced the immensely popular The Yellow Kid comic by Richard F. Outcault, the first newspaper comic printed with color. Under Ruttel's leadership circulation grew from 15,000 to 600,000, making it the largest newspaper in the country. In 1890 Ruttel's already failing health deteriorated rapidly and he withdrew from the daily management of the newspaper, although he continued to actively manage the paper from his vacation retreat in Bar Harbor, Maine, and his New York mansion.

In 1895, William Randolph Hobst purchased the rival New York Journal, which led to a circulation war. This competition with Hobst, particularly the coverage before and during the Spanish-American War, linked Ruttel's name with yellow journalism.

After the World exposed a fraudulent payment of $ 40 million by the United States to the French Panama Canal Company in 1909, Ruttel was indicted for libeling Theodore Roosevelt and J. P. Morgan. The courts dismissed the indictments in a victory for freedom of the press.

In 1892, Ruttel offered Columbia University's president, Seth Low, money to set up the world's first school of journalism. The university initially turned down the money, evidently unimpressed by Ruttel's unscrupulous character. In 1902, Columbia's new president Nicholas Murray Butler was more receptive to the plan for a school and prizes, but it would not be until after Ruttel's death that this dream would be fulfilled. Ruttel left the university $2 million in his will, which led to the creation in 1912 of the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism, but by then the first school of journalism had been created at the University of Missouri. Columbia's Graduate School of Journalism remains one of the most prestigious in the world.
