Questions 147 - 149 refer to the following article:
How secretary became women's work
The rise of the secretary began with the Industrial Revolution, which created an enormous amount of paperwork. In the early 20th century, it became a female job as companies realized they could pay women lower wages to do the work.
Secretarial schools offered professional training, which made it possible for many women to enter the career without a full college education.
It wasn't until 1950 that it became the most popular job among women. Back then, 1.7 million women worked in a category the Census defined as "stenographers, typists or secretaries." While the title has evolved since then, it remains the top female job.
Questions 150 - 152 refer to the following letter:

Volunteering can make you happier and help you live longer, according to a new study. A research paper published on Friday in the journal BMC Public Health says doing good deeds for others boosts your mental health and increases your longevity. Researchers from the UK's University of Exeter reviewed 40 academic papers into the effects of volunteerism on our health. They found that volunteers had lower rates of depression, an increased sense of well-being, and a 22 per cent reduction in the chances of dying within the next seven years. Australians lead the way in volunteering, with an estimated 36 per cent of the population lending a hand.
Leading researcher Dr Suzanne Richards said: "Our systematic review shows that volunteering is associated with improvements in mental health, but more work is needed to establish whether volunteering is actually the cause." She added: "It is still unclear whether biological and cultural factors and social resources that are often associated with better health and survival are also associated with a willingness to volunteer in the first place." In a separate study from the University of Michigan, researchers suggested three reasons why volunteering may be beneficial. First, it involves physical activity; second, the social connections we make help to reduce our stress; and third, it gives us a deep sense of happiness.

An American lawmaker has said cycling is bad for the environment. He also said cyclists should pay a tax to ride their bikes on the roads. Ed Orcutt, a representative from Washington State, sent an e-mail to the owner of a local bike shop to outline his thinking. He wrote: "A cyclist has an increased heart rate and respiration. That means that the act of riding a bike results in greater emissions of carbon dioxide from the rider. Since CO2 is…a greenhouse gas…cyclists are actually polluting when they ride." Mr. Orcutt said: "You can't just say that there's no pollution as a result of riding a bicycle…. You would be giving off more CO2 if you are riding a bike than driving in a car."
Mr. Orcutt also believes cyclists should be taxed to use the roads. He said it was unfair that motorists have to pay all of the costs of building and repairing roads. He wrote: "Currently motorists are paying to use their cars on the roads…so if cars pay for the roads they are using, it only makes sense that bicyclists would also be required to pay for the roads they use when they are actually biking on them." Dale Carlson, owner of the Tech Bike Shop said Mr Orcutt's ideas were wrong. He wrote: "People who choose to ride a bicycle instead of driving a car actively reduce congestion." He added: "They save wear and tear on our roads and bridges, and reduce the [need for police] to patrol our highways."

DON’T MISS IT! KARAOKE ON SATURDAY NIGHT

Re: Karaoke on Saturday Night!
I can’t express how excited I got when I read this note! I’m almost jumping for joy right now! I love karaoke and can’t wait to show my skills. I do have a few questions about what’s going on with the karaoke and the contest.
I know the time but I don’t know where the venue is for the show. Where is this shindig going to happen exactly? Currently my car is out of service so I would like to go to a venue that is close to a bus station or some kind of public transit. Can you give me directions once you have everything figured out?
I was also curious if this was an invite only thing or if I am able to bring anyone to the event. I would like to bring my new girlfriend along if that is alright. We just met a little while ago but she has such a fiery spirit and an amazing voice as well. I think she would be an excellent addition to the karaoke if you give her a chance! She also knows how to rock out her style so I think she will give people a run for their money in the Best Dressed category!
How do we register for a song? Do we need to register before the event or do we sign up when we arrive?
I hope to hear from you soon! I think we are going to have such a good time!

Dear Sir or Madam,
I am writing to inquire about possible openings at RAMtronics for a child care assistant. I recently found a job posting in SanFran Times magazine and would like to know if you are still looking for people. I am interested in a full time position caring for infants and toddlers at any age level.
I have spent the past year working at a daycare center in Los Angeles and feel I very qualified for the position. I am eager to contribute my abilities and experience to RAMtronics. I feel I fit the requirements for the job opening as I have developed my own system of organization and management with my previous school.
Given my experience and background, I believe I can help RAMtronics develop new types of activities for the children to help nurture their developing minds and bodies. I have extensive resources in the creation of age appropriate lessons for the children that are both entertaining and educational.
Thank you so much for your time and I look forward to discussing my qualifications further. If you have any questions or would like to reach me, you can contact me with the information provided above.
