7. Mathieu's dodgy house party
He had so many people at his party because ... he put an invite on his personal web page.
The damage was... someone writing in lipstick on the wall.
The police... gave the invitees five minutes to leave, told us we were disturbing the neighbours, and made him call his parents
He was worried because... he thought his dad would have a heart attack (figurative, hopefully)
He has a good relationship with his parents... because his mother said it wasn't his fault, and after he had done loads of household tasks as punishment, they never talked of the whole thing again.

A is reliant on the success of others

Advantages of traditional media... there are debates that help us understand events, watching the news is part of one's routine, you have immediate pictures from reporters around the world
Advantages of new media... images online often do not carry a political bias, you can see exactly what is going on, you can see things that would never be on TV, you can rewatch things as often as you want, there are films of funny accidents that are censored on TV, social networks can be used to show when governments are committing crimes

Isn't looking good... damm...
I think jobs no.3 was dustbin man because he said about bins. May be wrong.
Don't they release the transcript for the listening?
I think the heart attack answer is correct; I know others who got that too.
I didn't know the word for lipstick >:C
Was one of the solar panels advantages that- They live in a sunny area so solar panels are convenient?
How did everyone find it by the way???
