Some snakes aren't dangerous to humans but some exceptions include the rattlesnake, coral snake, water moccasin and copperhead can be very dangerous. Their bites can be life-threatening.
If you are bitten by a venomous snake, call your local emergency number immediately, especially if the area is painful , changes color or begins to swell. Many emergency rooms stock anti venom drugs, which may help you.
If possible, take these steps while waiting for medical help. You must remain calm and move beyond the snake's striking distance. First, remove jewelry and tight clothing before you start to swell and position yourself, if possible, so that the bite is at or below the level of your heart. After that, clean the wound, but don't flush it with water and then cover it with a clean, dry dressing.
You must remember not to use a tourniquet or apply ice and not to drink caffeine or alcohol, which could speed your body's absorption of venom. Don’t cut the wound or attempt to remove the venom. And don't try to capture the snake. Try to remember its color and shape so that you can describe it, which will help in your treatment.

Most tsunami, about 80 percent, happen within the Pacific Ocean's "Ring of Fire," a geologically active area where tectonic shifts make volcanoes and earthquakes common.
Tsunamis may also be caused by underwater landslides or volcanic eruptions. They may even be launched, as they frequently were in Earth's ancient past, by the impact of a large meteorite plunging into an ocean.
Tsunamis race across the sea at up to 500 miles (805 kilometers) an hour about as fast as a jet airplane. At that pace they can cross the entire expanse of the Pacific Ocean in less than a day. And their long wavelengths mean they lose very little energy along the way.
A tsunami's trough, the low point beneath the wave's crest, often reaches shore first. When it does, it produces a vacuum effect that sucks coastal water seaward and exposes harbour and sea floors. This retreating of sea water is an important warning sign of a tsunami, because the wave's crest and its enormous volume of water typically hit shore five minutes or so later. Recognizing this phenomenon can save lives.
A tsunami is usually composed of a series waves, called a wave train, so its destructive force may be compounded as successive waves reach shore. People experiencing a tsunami should remember that the danger may not have passed with the first wave and should await official word that it is safe to return to vulnerable locations.
Some tsunamis do not appear on shore as massive breaking waves but instead resemble a quickly surging tide that inundates coastal areas.
28. Why did the author write the text?
A. To inform people about the different types of tsunami.
B. To warn people about the dangers of tsunami.
C. To warn people about an upcoming tsunami.
D. To raise people' awareness about tsunami.
E. To inform people about past tsunamis.
29. Tsunamis are usually the result of ...
A. The sudden rise or fall of ocean floors
B. Pacific Oceans "Ring of Fire"
C. The awe-inspiring waves
30. From the text, we know that Tsunami can be very destructive because ...
A. They come after earthquakes
B. They are caused by volcanic eruptions
C. They are tall, fast, forceful and repetitive
D. They have a vacuum effect
E. They occur suddenly

Lately, concerns have arisen that Jakarta, the capital city of Indonesia, and its immediate surroundings are threatened to experience a clean water crisis by 2025. Clean water, which is produced by two private operators – PAM Lyonnaise Jaya (Palyja) and Aetra Air Jakarta – currently totals 18.7 m3 per second. However, by 2025, demand for clean water will reach 41.3 m3/second as the population of Jakarta is estimated to grow to 14.6 million people from 9.6 million currently (the unofficial figure is possibly much higher).
It has been reported that city-owned property developer Jakarta Propertindo (Jakpro) and city-owned developer Pembangunan Jaya will acquire a combined 100 percent stake in Palyja. If the Jakarta administration has a direct stake in the city water operators, it will increase public supervision on the local clean water industry.
PAM Lyonnaise Jaya, which manages the clean water supply in the west side of Jakarta, is a private water operator that is partly controlled by Astra International through its subsidiary Astratel Nusantara. Palyja has been active in Jakarta for about 16 years. However, last year a law suit was filed demanding that the court will annul the agreement between city water operator PAM Jaya and Palyja and Aetra Air Jakarta (Aetra) claiming that public access to affordable clean water has been hindered.
Based on information from the World Bank, Indonesia plans to achieve universal clean water access by 2019 but almost half of the population still do not have access to clean water at present.
