The number of billionaires in the world fell by nearly a third to 793 in the past year, with large numbers dropping off the list in Russia, India and Turkey. Gates regained his title as the richest man in the world, with $40 billion after slipping to third last year when he was worth $58 billion. Buffett, last years richest man, fell to second place with $37 billion, down from $62 billion. Mexican telecommunication tycoon Carlos Slim took third place with $35 billion, down from $60 billion. Collectively, the top three billionaires lost $68 billion in the year to February 13, when Forbes took a snapshot of wealth around the world to make its annual list of billionaires. Chief Executive of Forbes Magazines Steve Forbes said that, while few would shed a tear for the trouble of a billionaire, it was bad for the economy when entrepreneurs were in trouble. Billionaires dont have to worry about their next meal, but if their wealth is declining and youre not creating numerous billionaires, it means the rest of the world is not doing very well, he told reporters. The typical billionaire is down at least one third on their net worth. The net worth of the worlds billionaires fell from $4.4 trillion to $2.4 trillion, while the number of number of billionaires was down to 793 from 1125. Its the first time since 2003 that we have lost billionaires, but weve never before lost anywhere near this number, said Luisa Kroll, senior editor of Forbes. Its really hard to find something to cheer about unless you get some perverse pleasure in realizing that some of the most successful people in world cant figure out the global economic turmoil() better than the rest of us.

Lights are turning on and off. Your bed is shaking. Whats going on? Its an earthquake! Asia has been hit by a number of earthquakes recently. A size 7.8 earthquake hit Sichuan province on May 12, 2008. It killed about twenty thousand people. It also damaged many schools, and caused lots of students to miss important classes. Another earthquake, size 9.0 earthquake hit Japan on March 11, 2011. It also triggered a massive tsunami. Lots of people lost their lives in the earthquake. Earthquakes are measured on a scale of 0-9 called the Richter scale. A size 9 earthquake is the strongest and most dangerous. What causes earthquakes? The top layer of the earth, its crust(), is made up of huge pieces of rock. They move past each other all the time along fault lines(). But sometimes two pieces get stuck together. When they finally move away from each other, they move suddenly. This makes the land above them shake. This is the most common cause of earthquakes. But there are others. Every year there are over 8000,000 earthquakes around the world. Most are small and not felt by humans. What happens in an earthquake? A strong earthquake is very scary. During a small one, you will fell a little shaking. But during a strong one, you will be thrown about. Cracks() will appear in the ground and windows will break. Buildings may even fall down. So watch out. If an earthquake happens at sea it can make big waves called tsunamis(§·). When these waves reach land, they can destroy villages. The size 9 earthquake off Japan this March caused tsunamis 10 meters high! 66. A size ________ earthquake does the worst harm. A. 6 B. 9 C. 8 67. An earthquake is caused by __________.
