The following text is for questions 1 to 4
In 1956 a Brazilian scientist imported some special bees into Brazil from Africa. The African bees were the same size as ordinary bees. But they were much stronger and more dangerous. A sting from one of these bees can kill a man of even a buffalo very quickly.
The scientist imported the bees because he wanted to breed a new type of bees using the African bees and ordinary European bees. He wanted to combine the strength of the African bee with the safety of the European bee. Unfortunately, in 1957, 26 queen bees escaped and began to breed in the jungles of Brazil. They spread very quickly and since that time they have been moving slowly north- wards, covering 300 to 400 kilometers a year.
Over 200 people have died after being stung by the killer bees, and thousands of animals have also died. By March 1978 the killer bees had reached Venezuela and in 1980 they arrived in Panama. If they continue to move at the same speed will reach the USA in 1988. Today scientists from many different countries are trying to find ways of stopping the killer bees.

Motion sickness comes in many forms, not just seasickness. Ninety percent of the human race is susceptible to motion sickness one kind or another. Some people become sick when they sit in the backseat of a car; others cannot read or look at a map in any kind of moving vehicle. People get motion sickness on airplanes, motorcycles, amusement park rides, and even on camels! Scientist have learned that motion sickness occurs when the brain is trying to make sense of a situation and there are too many conflicting messages. While the eyes are sending one message, the ears are trying to send a message about balance. The skin and bone joints, sensitive to air pressure, send another message.
Many people who have experienced violent motion sickness try to avoid travel. But that is not always possible. So travelers should employ some well-known strategies to avoid getting sick. The most useful strategy concern food; eat a light meal before travelling and bring along a packet of plain soda crackers to snack on regularly. Avoid alcoholic and carbonated beverages, high-fat, and spices. Care in choosing the location of your seat is another important strategy. In car, sit at the front and keep your eyes fixed on the horizon.
People who still got sick after trying these strategies can try medical help. Some rely on over – the counter medications , although some of them can make you sleepy.
