It is only a shiny, yellow metal,but it is one of the most valuable metals on earth. Since thebeginning of time, men have looked for this extremely valuable item, gold.
Gold is soft and easy to form into different objects. If it gets wet, it does not rust like iron or other metals. Acids do not change it. One important reason that gold is so valuable is that it isscarce.
Due to its softness, gold must be combined with other metals to harden it and give if strength. By hardening gold, people can then make coins and jewelry with it. Metals commonly mixed withgold are nickel, platinum, and copper. Gold jewelry bears a number and the letter K.The K meanskarat( carat) , which is a measure of the amount of pure gold in the jewelry.

Passage 3
I suppose that the most basic and powerful way to connect to another person is to listen. Just listen. Perhaps the most important thing we ever give each other is our attention, and especially if it ‘ s given from the heart. When people are talking, there ‘ s no need to do anything but receive them. Listen to what they ’ re saying. Care about it.Most times caring about it is even moreimportant than understanding it. Most of us don ’ t valueourselves or our love enough to know this.It has taken me a long time to believe in the power of simple saying “I’m so sorry. when someone is in pain.
One of my patients told me that when she tried to tell her story people often interrupted to tell her that they once had something just like that happening to them. Her pain became a story about themselves. Eventually she stopped talking to most people. We connect through listening. When we interrupt what someone is saying to let them know that we understand, we move the focus of attention to ourselves. When we listen, they know we care.
I have even learned to respond to someone crying by just listening. In the old days I used to reach for the handkerchiefs, until I realized that passing a person a handkerchief may be just another way to shut him down, to take them out of their experience of sadness. ,Now I just listen. When they have cried all they need to cry, they find me there with them.
This simple thing has not been that easy to learn. It certainly went against everything had been taught since I was very young. I thought people listened only because they were too shy to speak or did not know the answer. But now I know that a loving silence often has far more power to heal than the kindest words.

Passage 4
Africans see many advantages in uniting the continent into a single nation, or in uniting several small nations of a particular region into a nation. In unity there is strength. Africans often point to the United States, formed by the original 13 states, as an illustration of this principle. Africans now is divided into many weak nations; united they would be much stronger. Africans could then more easily deal with foreign efforts to control them. Also it would be easier and less expensive to plan and carry out big projects like the building of highways and dams.
The considerations for African unity go beyond the practical advantages it would bring. As we have seen, the feeling of belonging to a particular nation is not strong among Africans. If, for example, you were to ask a man from Paris, “What are you?” he would certainly answer, “A Frenchman.” Ask the same question of a man from Ibadan in Nigeria and he might give one of three answers, or all three, depending upon his education and outlook. He might say, “A Yoruba,,(his people) , or “A Nigerian”,or just simply “An African;”.
Another factor that enters into the desire for unity is that educated Africans throughout the continent feel that they all have many things in common. Africa’s leaders, especially, all lived through the experience of colonial rule. Many of them went to school and university with men who now lead other African countries. They all feel resentful about the way in which they were treated in the past. Compared to these strong bonds,which overshadow the borders of nations, the idea of building separate nations does not have so much meaning. Some leaders say they are ready, in fact, to give up their separate nations. Four nations have written into their constitutions a provision that the government may give up its power to a Pan-African government.
