Newspapers can be traced back to 16th century Venice. In 1566, handwritten news sheets - called 'avis'
or ‘gazette' - filled with information on wars and politics in Europe were distributed weekly in Venice. Similar
news sheets soon started to appear in other European countries. By 1615, Germany and Austria were
publishing weeklies. And in 1621, the first news sheets appeared in England.
At first, these news sheets only printed news which came from outside the country in which they were
printed. Discussion of local or national issues was avoided. Europe’s governments did not tolerate anything
negative being said about them as it could lead to national unrest.
Such censorship slowed the development of newspapers. Nevertheless, a belief in the importance of a 'free
press’ slowly began to take hold in Europe. England was among the first countries to escape government
control of the press. This occurred during the reign of King Charles I in the 17th century, when, during a period
of breakdown in the king's authority, people began to publish what they wanted.
Eventually, free press had the right to criticize government and voice other ideas freely. In the middle of the
18th century, Sweden became the first country to make press freedom a part of its law.
In the 19th century, the newspaper industry was transformed by the invention of the telegraph. The telegraph
was a communication system that allowed messages to be sent over long distances in a matter of minutes. It
wasn’t long before newspapers became society's primary means of spreading and receiving information. In
1880, the first photographs appeared in newspapers and, by the end of the century, all the basic technical tools
for the modern newspaper were in place.
The story of newspapers in the 20th century was one of adaptation to changing consumer and media
markets. The invention of radio, TV, and later the Internet, repeatedly drove newspapers to reinvent
themselves. Also, during the 20th century, mass-market advertising increased profitability for newspapers. This
Over the years, people have periodically predicted the extinction of newspapers. In fact, every time a
new media has come into being, dire predictions have been made for existing forms (e.g. television was
supposed to have replaced radio, radio was supposed to have replaced newspapers). Yet history has
repeatedly shown that new media do not replace existing media. Instead, what happens is that media
consumption grows, which creates the necessary space for the new media to become a part of the media
According to the World Association of Newspapers (WAN), each day more than 1.5 billion people
around the world read a newspaper. The WAN has also estimated the total annual worth of the global
newspaper industry and put it at just under 180 billion USD. Such statistics suggest the newspaper industry is
healthier than at any other time in its history. Indeed, if the industry proves itself as capable of adapting to
change as it has done in the past, it is unlikely that newspapers will be disappearing from newsstands anytime

Why are there so many grandmothers and so few grandfathers? In other words, why do men die younger
than women? Is it because men are afraid of getting old and helpless and so they prefer to die before that
happens? Perhaps they fear to be left alone by their women and so decide to do the leaving first.
Many explanations are given for the fact that men die earlier than women. Men are stronger physically, yet
women can hang on longer to life. Both men and women are emotional creatures but women are not afraid or
ashamed to cry while men refuse to do so. They are afraid of being thought "soft". Some men, when they are
upset, play loud music or dig in the garden to relieve their feelings. Many men like an orderly life so that they
bury themselves in their work or want a wife with some children or long to take part in wars where there is a
So the majority of men like a rational world. Rationality is fine but it does not include everything that makes
life joyful and fun or even messy and frustrating. When a man refuses to cry he is refusing to accept that his
emotions are part of him. Of course some men do not follow this pattern. Bob Hawke is capable of crying in
public whereas Margaret Thatcher is probably incapable of crying at any time.
We need to cry because that shows our ability to suffer. If we do not suffer we are not really alive at all.
Suffering can be creative or destructive. If we can all learn to cry and laugh and shout and dance openly, we
are living creatively and adding something to the human race. We often say men suffer more from stress and
therefore they die earlier. Are we not saying in another way that they do not know how to suffer in the right way
- with tears and laughter instead of silence - and so they are miserable and just give up? That is just my theory
of course. Have you a better one?
Question 39: What does the word "that" in the passage refer to?
