In 2001, this team reported that it had spotted the ''cosmic renaissance, '' the era when the first starlight shone through the cosmos. Just days earlier, a team from the Sloan Sky Survey had announced finding evidence of the cosmic ''dark ages''-the period of about half a billion years after the Big Bang when dark fog filled the newly created space of our universe. The cosmic renaissance brought an end to the dark ages, as the first galaxies and quasars burned through the murky cosmos, making it transparent. The teams used data collected with powerful telescopes to observe the light emissions of quasars, the most distant known objects in the universe. Quasars, which are amazingly bright, can essentially offer snapshots of the universe from hundreds of millions of years ago. 13. The latter team aforementioned has declared that..... .

Question 4
For those of us without a family crest and signet ring, there is a place a few inches above the finger where social standing can still be displayed-the wrist. With its ticking heartbeat, the mechanical wristwatch is alive and never felt better. And for most people, the very definition of a luxury watch is a a Rolex. It has a mystical aura of high fashion, high quality and high price. It's the most popular watch, with an estimated 750, 000 sold annually and even more changing hands each year in the second-hand market. The reason for Rolex's stunning success is the firm's genius at marketing to people who aspire to own and can afford to buy, the accoutrements of popular culture's nobility. The typical Rolex buyer is seeking to have something their neighbours and friends either have or wish they had. Rolex has struck a balance between making a product that is just expensive enough so not everyone will own one, but just affordable enough for it to be within the reach of many. 16.
