pergunta:Traduza o texto a seguir


American carmakers love to take military research and technology and spin it off to help sell cars. The ubiquitous air bag, for example, was inflated partly through a joint venture between automakers and defense-industry ballistic and pyrotechnic scientists. Now consider the microwave impulse radar (MIR), which promises to make that innovation look primitive.
Developed by engineer Tom McEwan at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in California to measure nuclear- fusion reactions, MIR is a $10 radar-on-chip that sends and receives signals through inch-long antennas. Detroit is licensing these chips from Livermore and scrambling to engineer them into cars faster than you can say "options package". In prototype cars, a transmitter embedded in the taillight, trunk lid or rear bumper emits 1 million ultra-short MIR pulses per second; if the beam encounters a wall, curb or vehicle as driver tries to park, an alarm sounds. Or, the signals sweep across a car s blind spots: if the driver signals for a lane change and the radar beam detects and oncoming car, the system triggers a warning light on the dashboard and even taps the brakes. MIR will add about $200 to the base price of a car and should be available in some 1997 luxury models of U.S. cars for these uses and more. There are so many applications say McEwan, that "it s like uncorking a genie."

ubiquitous - sempre presente (famigerado)
uncorking - soltar

pergunta:Summarize in ONE SENTENCE the CENTRAL IDEA contained in each of the texts below. USE YOUR OWN WORDS.

A recent news story in Washington, D.C., reports that, of 184 persons convicted of gun possession in a six-month period, only 14 received a jail sentence. Forty-six other cases involved persons who had previously been convicted of a felony or possession of a gun. Although the maximum penalty for such repeaters in the District of Columbia is ten years in prison, half of these were not jailed at all. A study last year revealed that in New York City which has about the most prohibitive gun legislation in the country, only one of six people convicted of crimes involving weapons went to jail.
