When you turn on the radio, you hear an advertisement. When you watch television, you hear and see an advertisement. If you turn the pages of a newspaper or magazine, again you find an advertisement. If you walk down the street, you see one advertising board after another. All day, every day, people who want to sell you something compete to catch your attention. As a result, advertisements are almost everywhere.?
  In the West, advertisements are the fuel that makes mass media work. Many TV stations, newspapers, magazines, radio stations are privately owned. The government does not give them money. So where does the money come from? From advertisements. Without advertisements, there would not be these private businesses.?
  Have you ever asked yourself what advertising is? Through the years, people have given different answers to the question. For some time it was felt that advertising was a means of “keeping your name before the public.” And some people thought that advertising was “truth well told.” Now more and more people describe it in this way: Advertising is the paid, nonpersonal (非针对某个人的), and usually persuasive (有说服力的) description of goods, services and ideas by identified sponsors (明确的出资者)through various media.
  First, advertising is usually paid for. Various sponsors pay for the advert sements we see, read, and hear over the various media. Second, advertising is nonpersonal. It is not face to face communication. Although you may feel that a message in a certain advertisement is aimed directly at you, in reality, it is directed at large groups of people. Third, advertising is usually persuasive. Directly or indirectly it tells people to do something. All advertisements try to make people believe that the product, idea, or service advertised can do good to them. Fourth, the sponsor of the advertisement must be identified. From the advertisement, we can see if the sponsor is a company, or an organization, or an individual. Fifth, advertising reaches us through traditional (传统的)and nontraditional mass media. Included in the traditional media are newspapers, magazines, radio, television, and films. Nontraditional media include the mail, matchbox covers, and billboards (广告牌).?
  
  62. The existence(存在)of the privately owned mass media depends financially(经济上地)on
   A. the government   B. their owners’ families?  
   C. advertisements   D. the audience

  64. Which of the following is considered nontraditional mass media??
   A. Newspapers.     B. The mail.        C. Magazines      D. Films.?

  
  65. According to the passage, which of the following statements about the features of advertisements is NOT true??
   A. Advertising must be honest and amusing.?
   B. Advertising is meant for large groups of people.?
   C. Advertising tells people to do something directly or indirectly.?

   And shop only at secure sites; Send your credit-card information only if the Web site offers advanced secure system.?
   If the security is in place, a letter will appear in the bottom right-hand corner of your screen. The Web site address may also start https: // - the extra “s” stands for secure. If in doubt, give your credit-card information over the telephone.
  Keep your password(密码)safe: Most on-line sites require a user name and password before placing an order. Treat your passwords with care.?
