Reading：The article introduced a kind of plant which called GM (Gene Modification) crop. It has three major benefits:
1. It is good for the environment because it has the resist-gene. Using GM crop can reduce the use of pesticide.
2. It can help poor farmers around the world. GM crop can also have good yield in dry season which will profit the farmer.
3. GM plant can add missing nutrients for people in specific area. For example people eating a lot rice lack of Vitamin A, so GM rice which had added Vitamin A in it can help people gain what they missed.
Listening：The lecture totally disagreed in those three aspects:
1. If the resist-gene is got by the wild crop, it will grow out of control which brings more damage to the environment.
2. Those GM crop cannot help farmers economically because they need to buy those GM seeds every year instead of using the seeds they got from the last season. It is more costly.
3. The Vitamin A added in the rice is not enough. The more efficient way to deal with this problem is encouraging those people eating more vegetable like sweet potato.

2. No food preservation skills at that time could all human being to keep meat for a long time, thus, people only killed what they could eat, and therefore it is impossible for human to kill all the large mammals to make them extinct. People always move frequently at that time so they did not kill large animals at one place to make them become extinct.
3. Not only large mammals became extinct at that time, small animals such as some kinds of birds also became extinct at the time.
