When faced with some new technological change, rnost people react in one of two ways.
They ___190a)_ try to avoid it, clairning that it is unnecessary, -(90b)- they

Howcver. adults especially tend to be slow to apply new technology. --(91 )--- they
see clear evidcnce that a new machine has benefits, do they f'eel ready to use it thcmselvcs.
A good exarnple of this is the computer, which highlights the great difference between the
ge nerations. Adults usually suspect that computers are a threat to our f}eedom.
_(92)_ children seem to have less fear that they will take over our lives. Adults are
also constantly arnazed that their children czrn take _(93)_ so easily. Consequently.
they also feel inadequate when their children. _(94)_ the experts in the farnily. start
giving them advice on how to operate lfre familv home r:omputer properly. In fact, it does
not take long to operate a basic computer programme, _(95)_ things occasionally
go wrong for no apparent reason. However, what seems to really frighten many people is
that change is occurring -(96)- faster than it was, say, twenty years ago. No sooner
have we got used to one new invention _(97)_ we are told it is out of date and we
have to learn to use the machine that replaces it. But change and new technology do not
always bring improvements to our lives. When there is a power cut, for instance. wc

Speaking in fiont of large numbers of people is a skill which most people will need at
some time in their lives. lt is something which everyone can do. but is difficult to do well.
Diff-erent speakers, of course, have different styles. However, there are certain common
principles which will help you give your speech or presentation more professionally.
First of all, before your speech, it is essential that you be well prepared. Do lots of research
and prepare your materials carefully. Make sure you have enough to say to fill the tirne
provided. If you don't know enough about your subject, you will be (1)
serious disadvantage, especially when it comes to answering questions. If you find that you
have too much material, give (2)
to your main points - you can go into more
detail later if you have time. Don't memorise your speech, but be farniliar with it so that you
will be able to use just a f'ew notes. On the big day, arrive early. If you only .iusl
it in time, you won't be able to get everything ready. You are responsible
ensuring that any visual aids are scl up and working properly. Whert
cverything is ready. havc a chat with members of the audience. This will help you relax and get
to know the people you will speak to.
As you begin your speech, first introduce yourself and thank people 1'or coming. If' you

as well as the costs of the benefits paid to depcndents. For instance, in 1967 more than 1,300
dependents of veterans o1'the American Civil War - a war that ended 102 years bclore -
received annual benefits totaling more than $1 million. Veterans'benellts lbr the Spanish-
