Christiano Ronaldo scored a hat trick to power Real Madrid to a 5-1 home win over Deportivo La Coruna on Sunday, as the defending champions strung together back-to back Spanish league victories for the first time this season.
Madrid will head into next weekend’s “clasico” match at Camp Nou eight point behind leading Barcelona, but at least Jose Mourinho’s side is showing strong signs it has recovered its dominating form from the last campaign.
Deportivo opened through Ivan “Riki” Sanches-Rico 16 minutes in, but Ronaldo equalized from the penalty spot in the 23rd and netted again just before half time after Angle Di Maria had extended to lead.
Pepe added a headed goal in the 66th before Ronaldo capped the victory with a spot kick in the 83rd. “The most important thing about my three goals is that they helped the team to win”, said Ronaldo. “We know it will be tough against Barcelona. We are playing away from home. But we have to be focused and confident that we can play a good game and get the victory.
Ronaldo’s 17th career hat trick lifted him even with Barcelona’s Lione Messi with 6 goals each through 6 rounds. Both trail Atletico Madrid striker Radamel Falco by one goal.
Until now, Madrid had been unable to reproduce the same attacking verve that had led it to convincing victories over Manchester City in the Champion League and Barcelona in Spanish Super Cup
But after shaking off “Deportivo’s early goal, it quickly took care of business at Santiago Bernabeu Stadiun on a night it could ill afford another slip up.
“We started without a lot of energy, but we woke up after the 1-0” said Ronaldo. It was an important win because we knew we couldn’t drop any more points.
Mourinho rested regular starters Xabi Alonso and Alvaro Arbeloa with Madrid set to visit Ajax in champions League on Wednesday, shifting Sergio Ramos over to take Arbelo’s place on the right of the defense.

New robotic system can transmit sense of touch.
Asia News Network (The Yomiuri Shimbun) Thu, 07/12/2012 10:42 a.m. Sci-Tech
Japanese researchers have developed a robotic system that can convey the sense of touch-including temperature, hardness and texture-from a robot to human hand. The system was developed by Susumu Tachi, special professor at Keio University, and his development staff.
The users wear a helmet with a monitor display, a vest and gloves that can receive the “sense of touch” of fabric and objects grasped by the robot. The vest transmits information about the wearer’s position and posture, while the gloves recreate the sense of touch and temperature of the object.
As the robot has a number of sensors on its fingertips, the user can even feel the vibration of marbles in a glass container and detect differences in the feel of fabrics.
23. What is the topic of the text?
A. News of new developing of robotic system
B. An explanation of how a robot transmits sense of touch
C. News of how Susumu Tachi develops a new robot
D. A robot that was developed at Keiko University
E. A development of sensors on robotic system
24. The user can feel the vibration of marbles in glass container because….
A. the user wears a helmet with a monitor display
B. the robot has a number of sensor on its fingertip
C. the robot can detect differences in the feel of fabric
D. the vast transmit information about the wearer’s position

The components of speech system are the lungs, trachea (windpipe), larynx (organ of speech production), pharyngeal cavity (throat), oral or buccal cavity (mouth), and nasal cavity (nose).
In technical discussions, the pharyngeal and oral cavities are usually grouped into one unit referred to as the vocal tract. The vocal track begins at the output of the larynx (vocal cord or glottis) and terminates at the input to the lips. The nasal tack begins at the velum and end at the nostrils. When the velum (a trap-door-like mechanism at the back of the oral cavity) is lowered, the nasal track is acoustically coupled to the vocal tract to produce the nasal sounds of speech.
Meanwhile, air enters the lungs via the normal breathing mechanism. As air is expelled from the lungs through the trachea, the tensed vocal cords within the larynx are caused to vibrate by air flow. The airflow is chopped into quasi-periodic pulses, which later are modulated in frequency in passing through the throat, the oral cavity, and possibly the nasal cavity. Depending on the position of various articulators (i.e., jaw, tongue, velum, lips and mouth), different sound are produced.
