A recent report from the European Car Racing Association shows that many professional race car drivers suffer from chronic neck pain due to frequent quick acceleration and sudden braking during competitions. Drivers frequently accelerate their cars from 30 km/h to 200 km/h in just seconds. The occupation also increases risk of spinal stress.
James Waters, professional driver since 1989, comments that he has experienced chronic neck pain for many years. The only remedy seems to be frequent massages and exercises designed to strengthen the neck muscles. Manufacturers of car restraint systems are also trying to design better safety belts to keep the neck more stable during acceleration and braking, a change we may not see in this sport for several years.
1. What can help lessen the stress related to car racing?

2. When may new designs in safety belts appear?

To all television viewers:

You have been watching the television reality show Wannabe all month and now
it is your chance to make a historic vote. As you remember, six contestants on
this show have had to leave due to lack of singing talent or difficulties living with
the other contestants of the show. But this week, two of those contestants will
be given the opportunity to return to the show and continue fighting for their
dream to win a recording contract with Showy Music. This is where you come
in. By calling the number on your television screen during Monday's show, you
can vote for your favorite singer that has been forced to leave the show. You £
may also vote by email through our Internet web page at
Remember, the fate and dreams of these singers are in your hands. We expect that over two million people will vote. Make your vote count, too!
Subject: Wannabe
Date: June 2 2006
I love Wannabe and am a really big fan. I would like to register a vote for Mandy Green and a vote for Tyson Bailey. I think they both have wonderful voices and charming personalities. I do not understand why they were voted off. I really do not think that the judges on Wannabe know anything about music. They do not recognize real talent at all. If there is a second series of Wannabe, I sincerely hope that you will not be using Samuel Jones and Alison Evans as judges. The show would be much better without them.
