It is immediately. outside international terminal is ok and another thing i want to check is w Will they be open when i arrive or is it just office hours mmm no they open at 7pm and close at 6:15pm so let's see you must land at ten past six by the time you pick up your bags and stuff which will take a bit of time they won't be open but if you arrange ahead they can wait for you you have to pay an extra $30 for that though that's ok I'm Stingley, the airport. the first night so you can come back in the morning and save another day yeah yeah that would be better that would save you about $50.
You know what kind of cars have a great variety? I think the best value should be below. $60 a day hopefully that would be the echo I guess I'm sorry ech Oh, like when your voice bounces before you hear the rest of the conversation. You have some time to look at questions six through ten. pause recording for 30 seconds. Now listen and answer question six to ten I guess I have to book online before I go ummm that's the best way oh they won't deduct any c charge until you're done with the car but they need your credit card number when you book and of course they will want to see your driving license when you pick it up.
How long will you need it? I'm in Sydney for the first seven days. I only need to wear it three or four of those days I hope, but I'll stick with it for the whole week. I guess it will cost a few hundred dollars. Can you suggest anything I can do to keep the cost down? big discount if you do less than a thousand miles a week oh that's good I guess I won't be driving that far actually but oh yeah the other thing I should mention is insurance is included in the price oh that is Good value so yes but what you need to remember is that it doesn't cover anything except the car so be careful not to leave anything in it when you park because your luggage is not insured even if it is locked. in the trunk yeah well i think my travel policy will cover that really good ok can i return the car outside office hours?
My flight home is very early in the morning. Can I put the keys in the door or something? There is a lockbox just outside the office on the move to pay. You just left the keys there. and another thing you must remember to buy gasoline before leaving it if you do not return the car with a full tank they charge you to fill it up I recommend that you go to a supermarket before leaving for the airport thanks for the advice in no way call again if there is anything else in Anything that can help I will Mary thank you that's the end of section 1 now you have half a minute to check your answers pause the recording for 30 seconds now move on to section 2 section 2 you will hear a speaker from the hospitality industry address a group from young people about careers in your company first you have some time to watch questions 11-15 pause the recording for 30 seconds now listen carefully and answer questions 11-15 good morning it's a great ple I'm sure here in London and to see so many people interested in working in hotels.

Well, you've already read a little mm-hmm. What benefits would there be for the customer? Why do you think a supermarket chain would be willing to do it? Cover construction costs. You realize that would be the first thing they would raise. Yes, I know, but I would explain to them that despite the high initial expense, they would save that amount in about five years. Hmm, well, I would have to do sums. I mean calculating specifically if what it would be like d the savings come mainly through lower heating and cooling bills the added insulation offered by having a layer of live plants on the ground would make a big difference ok but they could feeling maintenance expense would be an issue after all supermarkets don't normally employ gardeners what i thought was if they turned it into a community garden instead of just a low maintenance green roof so they would have public access oh yeah , then there would be a sense of ownership in the local community and people could take responsibility for it instead of the supermarket paying a trading company and it's a big boost for their public relations that's a good point and have you been doing your research How are Roof Gardens built today?
I'm still exploring that, but if I take advantage of the latest technologies for Roof Gardens it shouldn't be too difficult, but in any case, you should use lightweight materials, but that's a matter of making the right choices, you can even use some quite traditional ones like wood for the planting areas yes that's what I thought would look good and it's not too heavy but for basic construction the issue you need to address first is the material used between the building and the garden you mean the fabric barrier hmm which ensures there is no chance of rainwater seeping into the building.
Yes, today that is very good and quite easily obtained. On the other hand, there is the water business inside the roof garden.Do you mean drainage which is an important construction feature in any roof design yes but I think most drainage issues have been well understood for quite some time ok but another thing is with plants in an exposed situation you usually need to find ways to optimize rainfall yes because rainwater is better for the garden if you can store it for when it is needed what i have been looking at are some buildings using fairly conventional storage tanks from The type that has been in use for decades but linked to modern automatic irrigation systems sounds complicated, in practice it is less complicated than it sounds.
I think I've been looking into those and actually the latter ones definitely work very well and can be electronically regulated to suit the local microclimate mm-hmm that sounds interesting. I've been doing extensive research, make sure you reference all your sources when writing it, yeah right, and there's one more thing I'd like to mention if there's time. I have a sketch here let's take a look before you listen to the rest of the conversation you have some time to watch the questions 25 to 30 pause the recording for 30 seconds now listen and answer the questions 25 to 30 well i was really impressed by something i saw in a roof in cornwall and i would like to design something similar it has a planting area and im thinking of installing this lighting in an area full of low growing evergreen shrubs hmm i would have to have lights and stuff away from anywhere kids could be but i can see this could be very effective if a bit tricky how would it work in this drawing this is a sectional view hmm you have this low wall on the right yes that is just one element and these areas would repeat around the planted area i think It will probably be a wood wall with reclaimed wood with an angled ceramic top surface, maybe even Ridge shingles like they use on their roofs, oh yeah, that's right. it would be the kind of thing hmm and that will make it weatherproof f um and then the heavy duty electrical wiring goes up through the floor just outside the planted area and into the wall, then it runs to a floodlight on the lower side of the wall and that sends a beam of light along the fiber optic cable so there is no electricity in the actual lights the fiber optic goes right through the soil surface in the planting area yeah that's the beauty of it hmm, the bushes will soon grow to cover it of course, and then the cable runs over a wooden post. which is between the bushes and can be a support for them as they grow and then runs to each element of the installation so that the beam of light goes up to the top of each element and lights up a kind of conical glass lid hmm ya I see is that the part that would glow in the dark, yes, and what the lid rests on, is a wall, no, it is a thin acrylic rod like the stem of a flower or a mushroom in which the cable runs inside.
I'll be interested to see the final drawings thanks I'm looking forward to putting it all together that's the end of section 3 now you have half a minute to check your answers pause the recording for 30 seconds now go to section 4 section 4 you will listen to a geography student giving a presentation on sand to a fellow students first you have time to watch questions 31-40 pause the recording for 1 minute now listen carefully and answer questions 31-40 first i would like to tell you how the Argos computerized photography system has helped students marine researchers then i'll talk a little bit about the argos sand collection well is the dr system.
Rob Holman developed it when he worked at a research dock on the North Carolina coast some 20 years ago. This pier stretches out over the water and is the longest research pier in the world with an observation tower at the end that the researchers built. precise measurements of how sand moves under road blades this research is essential for the study of beach erosion in places where the shoreline is wearing away the Argus system helps to solve the difficulties encountered by these researchers the system correlates the underwater data bringing dr. Holman obtains from his still camera which is mounted above the water on the pier and uses time-lapse photography, some of the images of dr.
Coleman's results have changed the way people understand how sand moves. To quote Jefferies Williams, a US Geological Survey coastal geologist, the system is a critical piece of new technology, and the Argus system allows us to visually quantify and document changes to the coastline over a variety of different time frames, Many of these occur when there is a storm or at other times when it is difficult to have people on the beach making observations and taking measurements. Until now, Argus installations have been set up at locations in Oregon, California, Hawaii, England, the Netherlands, Australia, New Zealand, Spain, Italy, and Brazil as well as North Carolina Now I would like to introduce Dr.
Sand Collection Holman began collecting sand in the 1980's and still collects it now, although he has over a thousand samples from his travels and from geologists and hobbyists. from around the world and the collection includes sand from every continent, including Antarctica. sand in envelopes, plastic bags, paper towels and all kinds, each stored in a glass jar that dr. Holman labels by latitude and longitude its origin as well as he can figure it out. Sometimes the information is a bit sketchy. Anyway, it is mainly geology students at the University who study his collection and can learn a lot from it, for example, a set of pipes. scroll y from the east coast of the US so you can see the sand getting lighter and finer from north to south when a grain of sand finally hits a beach in Florida at the southern end of that journey has been roughed up by the waves for a long time so the grains are fine and rounded because most of the time the sand is not stationary on the beach that's ok so if you want to collect sand and maybe even send some to the dr .
Holman, how should I get it right? The equipment list is very short and easy to find, but you should keep a supply when you travel, as you never know when you'll come across an interesting sand sampler. Something really useful for digging. sand especially if it's hard or frozen is a scoop it's perfect for that, if you're traveling by plane it will need to be plastic but metal is preferable as plastic tends to break you need something to put the sand on samples that is moisture proof and easy to transport you can just use plastic bags but you have to record the location and date on the bag so you should also have a permanent marker with you because you can never assume you will remember where you collected one sample later and no i don't want it erased before i get home and that's all you need in the field to collect sound when you get home your samples need to be recorded on a laptop or computer you need to note the location and be really specific as to exactly whereabouts on the beach did you collect your sample low tide mark in the cliff area etc. then you store your sample you want to keep everything in good condition and avoid contamination so first make absolutely sure each sample is perfectly dry you don't need any complicated apparatus this you can just air it out on layers of newspaper which is adequately absorbent most of the time People find that this is the best way, last but this is really important before there can be any chance of confusing this last sample with another, place it in a clean little bag or jar and you should stick an identifying label of immediate.
Some people also put one inside in case the outer tag falls off, but that's up to you. Well, that's all you need to know to get started as a sound collector. end of section four, you now have half a minute to check your answers, pause the recording for 30 seconds, that's the end of the
listeningcomprehension test in the IELTS exam, you would now have ten minutes to transfer your answer to the answer sheet
