PostSubject: ship   Tue Nov 11, 2008 9:06 am

[b] The lecture states a ship called Mary Celeste that was found on the coast of Portugal in 1872 empty with no one aboard. There were intended many theories that would explain the mistery of the "ghost ship", but the pirate stories and the cruel capitain murdered by the crow aren't very belivable. There was evidence of the fact that the Capitain Benjamin Briggs was a respected leader, in charge of his crew. Though, in the lecture, there is inferred the possibility of a pirate attack, but the strangest thing is that there wasn't taken anything off the ship. The lecture mainly arguments what is stated in the passage before,supporting the possibility of the crew abandoning the ship. And there are several reasons of this kind of behaviour of the sailors and their capitain. In those times, people were very afraid of fire. As they were carring 1701 barrels of achool on bord of which 9 were found empty, it is believed that the fume that the barrels caused might have scared the crew. They believed that alchool might explode, so they all could have abandoned the ship, in order to avoid the fire. The historical scientist Weiss's opinion is that the alchohol barrels could have exploded without damaging the ship. So the lecturer mostely agrees with the possibility of the abandoning of the ship. Thereafter, the crew and its capitain probably drowned or died because of hunger, after they left on their lifeship.

Both the Reading passage and the lecture deal with the story of the Mary Celeste. The Mary Celeste is a ship that was found in the late nineteenth century near the coasts of Portugal with no crew nor passengers on board. The Mary Celeste was thus soon said to be a ghost ship since it was found undamaged.
The lecture obviously casts doubt on the tentavive explanations given in the Reading passage for the founding of an unhabited ship with no traces of damages or robbery.
First, while the text suggests the happening a crew mutiny in order to solve the mistery of the Mary Celeste, the lecturer demonstrates the flaws of such a theory. The lecturer explains that no member of the crew or even the Captain took their personal items. It is obvious that if a mutiny had taken place, the crew could have stolen the missing barrels of alcohol but they would also have brought with them their pipes for example. However, no pipe was missing when the boat was discovered. This discovery strongly undermines the first hypothesis made by the writer.
Second, the text pretends that the crew who discovered the Mary Celeste could have been the murderers of the crew and passengers of the ship. However, the lecture shows that such an explanation is not reasonable. Captain Gracia whose crew discovered the abandoned ship was a accointance of its Captain and no evidence at all could be found by the Court in order to support that theory.
Lastly, the lecturer proposes a new explanation to the Mary Celeste question. He hypothesizes that fumes may have stemmed from the alcohol barrels that were transported in the ship. Since the Captain was not used to transport such goods, everybody may have panicked and escape the ship in small lifeboats for fear of an explosion. The lifeboats in question may have drawned or been caught in a Storm. It is also possible that the passengers starved to death.

PostSubject: Mary Cleste   Tue Nov 18, 2008 12:12 pm

The listening passage mentions about the suspicious disappearance of Mary Cleste and according to the passage there are not any evidences about this rumor. Furthermore, there are some assumptions about this mysterious incident. One of them is that ship contain alchol barrels. Therefore, they may have exploded. Because captan did not contain these kind of stuff than ever. The second one is that it appeared a fire on the board. Because there is not anyone in a life. wheras, the reading passage is about the mystery of Mary Cleste. It has some ideas about this event that is not based on any violence. Because, there is not any sign of the damger.

The passage introduces a mysterious incident in which a ship called Celeste Mary was found abandoned and puts forward two theories which can explain the incident. The lecture attacks these two theories and presents a third theory which goes well with the known facts and seems to be most plausible explanation of this incident.

The professor in the lecture presents the fact the the captain of this ship- Benjamin Briggs was a very experiences and widely respected captain in those days and shared a very good rapport with his crew. It seems very improbable that his crew would have rebelled against him.

To counter the other theory, which surmises that the crew which found and claimed the prize money had killed the crew of Celeste Mary, the professonr mentions several counter facts. First, the captains of both these ships were friends. Second, there were no signs of any violence on the ship.

The professor mentions that most likey reason for this incident was the fear of an explosion due to alcoholic fumes on the ship. Fear of fire and an explosion in those days had the potential to evoke a panic among the crew members who could have abandoned the ship as a result. Several facts which are known to be true support this theory. For instance, the ship was carrying alcohol for the first time and hence the crew and the captain were inexperienced. Second- the lost barrels must have formed detectable amount of fumes which would have made the crew panick. Third the hatches and portholes of the ship which were found open, must have been opened by the creq to eject the alcoholic fumes out of the ship.

In sum, I think the lecture exposes the weaknesses in the two theories presented and presents a new theory, which he augments using compelling evidences.

PostSubject: Mary Celeste   Fri Nov 28, 2008 9:30 am

In the lecture, the professor made several points contradicting the explanations for the mystery of the Mary Celeste, mentioned in the reading. The professor argues that the ship was disserted by its crew due to fear of explosion. Unlike the reading that suggests two other theories: munity or piracy.

First theory mentioned in the reading states that the ship's crew had conducted a mutiny – killed the captain and leaving onboard lifeboat. In the lecture tough, the professor casts a substantial doubt on that explanation by emphasizing the facts that none of the ship's cargo was taken, hence eliminating a motive for such mutiny.

The professor then declines the theory of piracy by those who found the ship by stating that the captain who did find Mary Celeste was a known very good friend of the ship's captain thus it is very unlikely.

At last, after dismissing both of the reading's explanations, the professor suggests a new theory – the Mary Celeste was left by it's own crew due to their fear of explosion. The fact that neither one of them was then found is explained by an assumption that their lifeboat was lost in see

Mary Celeste is an old ship that was found without any of it's crew on board , it departed from New York to Italy as it's destination and was abandoned at Portugal.The crew was never heard of again. The Captain was strict and it was thought that his crew killed him and his family due to the effect of alcohol.Another thought is that the people in the ship that located the Celeste may have killed those on board, took their valuables, and claimed the reward money. A British officer tried to punish them in the court of law, but failed.

PostSubject: The mystery of the Mery Celeste   Sat Nov 29, 2008 5:26 pm

For years, everyone has been trying to uncover the mystery of the boat Mery Celestle. Known as 'ghost boat', it was traveling from New York to Italy and was found on the Portugal coast in 1872. There are few theories what might have happened, such as piracy, explosion, storm, starvation...

The captain of the boat-Benjamin was presented as a respected and experienced person and his crew was described as well-known and well-behaved. Therefore, no one knows how the boat ended up all opened and empty in the middle of nowhere.

Concerning the fact that the boat was carrying alcohol and the captain and the crew were not experienced with it, the theory sais that the ship blow up. They might've noticed that the alchocol is leaking and got scared the boat might explode, therefore they abonded the boat, settle on lifeboats and got cought in a storm or starved to death.

On the other hand, it was thought that crew rebelled against the captain. This did not have sense, because all their belongigs were found on the boat.

At last, Mery Celstle was found by another boat, what provoke suspicious that that crew from that boat actually killed captain Benjamin and his crew to collect award for finding a boat. After investigation, this was soon denied, because they did not find any evidence of robbery or damage. Moreover, the person who found the boat was Captain Benjamin's friend.

PostSubject: Re: Free iBT integrated writing task submission   Sat Dec 06, 2008 10:01 pm

The reading passage discusses two theories that were developed to explain the Mary Celeste event. The lecture on the other hand explains why the theories illustrated in the reading passage are not credible, and presents new theories to explain the incident.

As the reading passage explains, Mary Celeste was known as the ghost ship, because it was found with its hatches and portholes open, but without any passenger on board. The first theory explained in the reading passage, stated that because the captain of the ship Benjamin Briggs, was so strict, the crew members decided to kill him, and afterwards, they abandoned the ship. The lecturer contradicts this argument, stating that Benjamin Briggs was an experienced, well known and respected captain. Under these circumstances, the professor believes that the possibilities that the captain was not able to control the crew, are very limited.

The second theory states that the crew that found the ship stilled the valuable objects and in order to erase the evidence, they decided to kill the crew and the passengers. However, the professor contradicts this argument, saying that during the trial, no evidence of suspicious behavior was found to support this thesis. Moreover, the captain of the ship that found the Marie Celeste was a good friend of Benjamin Brigg.

Finally, the lecturer says that nowadays, new theories believe that the crew of Marie Celeste abandoned the ship because they were afraid of an explosion. The ship transported a large charge of alcohol, which might have created dangerous fumes. This could explain why the hatches and portholes were opened when the ship was found. Indeed, probably the crew members opened them to release the fume. An experiment conducted by a German historian demonstrated that under those circumstances, it is probable that the explosion might have not happened. However, as the professor explains, fire was probably the biggest fear of the crew, not an explosion. Finally, the professor believes that because the crew was so nervous about this situation, they probably decided to abandon the ship in smaller boats, and probably they died drowned or starved.

PostSubject: mary celeste   Thu Dec 11, 2008 4:31 am

the listening part and the reading part focus on the same thing: why did the the ship mary celeste disapare and then reapare with no trace of humans on board.
in the reading part it is implied that one of the members of the crew killed the captain. this theory is dismissed by the man holding the lecture. he highlights that captian benjamin was highly respected by everyone. so, in his opinion this theory is ruled out.
the lecture keeper seems to agree a lot more with the second theory implied in the reading paragraph. it is known that the ship transported barrels of alcohol. this liquid is highly dangerous, in case of leeking, it produces fumes, which can lead to fire. fires are one of the main desasters on a ship. it is possible that the captain decided to abandon ship, when he saw that some barrels leaked and produced fumes. the crew and passagers are believed to have left the ship in a boat and then got lost at sea, suffered from hunger and also caught by a storm, which eventualy lead to their death.
the two passages, reading and listening, refer to the same issue, but have different opinions on the matter.

PostSubject: Mystery of Mary Celeste   Thu Dec 18, 2008 10:10 am

Both the reading passage and the lecture try to explain the mystery of Mary Celeste which was aship abandoned off the coast of Portugal and was referred to as "ghost ship".
The reading passage presents two theories to explain the mystery and the lecture counters both of them and offers a new theory to explain the mystery.
One of the theories that the passage presents is that of a possibility of a mutiny aboard the ship resulting in the captain being killed . The lecture however claims that the captain, Briggs, was a respected captain and was friendly with the crew. Thus it rules out the possibility of a mutiny.
The second theory that the passage talks about is that , the crew which found May Celeste near Portugal might have killed the crew and passengers. Against this, the lecture explains that the crew captain and Capt.Briggs were friends and that the sailors had no personal belongings to be stolen. Also, the case that was filed against them failed to show up any evidence against the crew. Thus this theory also doesn't seem to offer a plausible explanation for the mystery.
The lecture gives an alternate explanation for the mystery. It elaborates how the captain and the crew had apprehensions of the ship exploding due to alcohol fumes. As described in the passage, nine out of 1701 barrels of alcohol were empty probably because of leakage. The crew would have left the hatches and portholes open, abandoned the ship and left. And they were probably lost in the sea or drowned .
Thus the lecture doesn't agree with the speculations made in the passage and presents a different viewpoint based on the same facts in the passage.

PostSubject: Mary Celeste Mystery   Fri Dec 26, 2008 10:16 am

Although it is still a mystery, the finding of Mary Celeste without its passengers has aroused many theories. One of them is the theory of a mutiny inside the boat, the other theory is based on piracy, and a third theory is related to an alcohol leak. In this passage I aim at explaining how the lecture challenges the theories explained in the reading passage.
In the reading passage it is stated that the crew killed Captain Briggs and his family, and then left the ship in one of the lifeboats. The second theory exposed in the reading passage is related to piracy. According to this theory, the crew that found the ship were the killers. Apparently, they killed Mr. Briggs after having stolen jewels and other valuable objects. Then, they killed everyone to remove evidence.
These two theories are put into doubt in the lecture presented afterwards.According to the lecture, the theory that the crew of Mary Celeste killed Briggs is not a sound theory, because the crew were friends to Captain Briggs. Nor is the theory that states that the crew that found the bot were the real killers, because it was proved that none of the objects were missing.
The third theory is presented in the lecture. The theory states that the explanation to the mystery of Mary Celeste is related to a gas leak. According to this theory, 9 of the 1791 alcohol barrels were found empty; a fact that could be explained by a gas leak. This idea is reinforced by the sight of the holes found inside the boat, holes that could have been made by the crew to air the ship. As there was little information on the subject of explosions inside a boat and its possible effects, both the crew and the captain decided to abandon the ship on a lifeboat. When they were travelling in this lifeboat, they could have died because of a violent storm, starvation or they could have been lost in the sea.

PostSubject: Re: Free iBT integrated writing task submission   Tue Jan 06, 2009 3:55 am

The lecture completely refutes the passage. Both, the lecture and the passage refer to the Mary Celeste, a ship that was found without its crew off the coast of Portugal in 1872. However, the reasons they give so to explain the situation are completely different.

In the first place it is said in the lecture that the crew from Mary Celeste left everything behing (even their pipes) and that they were honorauble people. However, the passage suggests that the crew may have killed their captain and stollen the ship and part of the goods that were there.

In addition to this, the lecturer explains that the captain of the ship that found the Mary Celeste was a friend of Mary Celeste's captain. On the other hand, the passage opposes this viewpoint by explaining that the second ship and its crew robbed the Mary Celeste, killed its crew and claimed the reward.

Furthermore, regardless the fact that the lecture mentions that the nine barrels of alcohol that were found empty had a leak thay could have caused a fire (main fear of a captain at that time in history), the passage just implies the crew drunk them all.

Consequently, the only fact that has been proven is that the Mary Celeste was found without crew. However, it has been impossible to determine what has really happened although we have some theories about it.

PostSubject: Re: Free iBT integrated writing task submission   Thu Jan 08, 2009 7:11 pm

The lecture refutes the two theories that are explained in the reading passage, using reasobnable evidence for that, and then gives us a third theory that explains in a better way the reason that the ship Mary Celeste was found abandoned.
The first theory of the mutiny is refuted in the lecture because captain Briggs was a good sailor that had a lot of respect for their crew, so he could have managed well a mutiny situation. Also, there was no sign of fight in the ship, so this theory was discarded.
The second theory of pirates killing the captain and crew was refuted because the ship was founded with valuable objets inside. A pirate would have taken all the valuable that where available. In addition, the captain of the ship that foundes Mary Celeste was a friend of captain Briggs, so he would have no reason at all to kill captain Briggs.
Finally, the lecture gives a more plausable reason that can explain the dissapearance of the people in the ship, and that would be that captain Briggs didn't have the experience to transport alcohol, and he was afraid that the cargo can create a fire if any of the barrels were broken. Moreover, there were nine barrels empty, which can suggest that they liked to the bottom of the ship and the captain decided to open the hatches and portholes to ventilete the ship, as a precaution for a possible fire. Then, the crew would have abbandoned the ship because of this same risk, and at the sea they wold have died in a storm or other situation.

PostSubject: Mary Celeste   Fri Jan 09, 2009 6:52 am

The lecture contrast the idea of the reading passage according to what had happened to the ghost ship where the captain and the crew abandoned the ship.There is no piracy happened because the capatin is of good reputation and experienced and good csptsin.They never bring with them any personal belonging even their smoking pipe to tell in the reading passage that they stolen some of the valuable materials. Instead, it argues and explain that no evidence and that it never had one that the captain and the crew had done suspicious and criminality on board.
It tells in the lecture that the captain and crew abandoned the ship because they are afraid the ship will explode.According to the passage there are barrels of wine aboard and that lots of bottle was emptied.They assumed that there was leaking happened and they even oopened the portals to look where the fumes are coming from.By those times fire is the greatest danger that will going to happen on the ship and so that is the reason why they abandoned the ship.

Hi, this is tumbolina.
hope you comment on my essay.



In this set of materials, the reading passage talks about the explanations of the mystery of mary celeste, which is a ghost ship that was found empty in the coast of Portugal 1872.While the listening passage challenges the information given in the reading passage.

First, regarding the crew and the captain of mary celeste, Briggs, the listening passage point out from the records that there was a good relationship between them. The captain was a respectable man. However, the passage suggests that the crew killed the captain and threw him and his family over board and then they left by the lifeboat.

Second, the reading passage claims that the sailors, who found the ship of mary celeste, had killed the passengers after stolen valuable things to clear the evidence. And then, they took the ship to gain the reward of gibralte for the finding of a missing ship. But, The lecture demonstrates that the sailors didn’t took any valuable things with them, Moreover, the captain of the other ship was a friend of the captain of mary.

Third, regarding the sailors, the lecturer says that the court didn’t find any evidence to suspect the sailors. This is directly contradicts what the passage indicates that the sailors were punished by the British havy officer.

The listening passage and the reading passage are completely opposite which can make the user doubt about the mystery of mary caleste and keep it questioned.

PostSubject: mmm...   Fri Jan 09, 2009 9:04 pm

This set of materials refers to a mystery about a ship that was found near to Portugal on the 1872. As the reading passage mentions, in the Mary Celeste, as the ship was called, there were not people at all when it was found, just the ship with its windows and doors open.

About how this could happen, the reading explains two possible theories. The first one is that the crew decided to kill their strict captain Benjamin Briggs and his family as a part of the muting. The second theory explained is that the crew of the ship that apparently found the Mary Celeste, were actually pirates, that stole some valuable things and killed the crew for erasing evidence and then, asked for a reward thanks to the information about the “lost” ship.

The listening passage does not support these two theories, based on the evidence that the captain was an experimented and reputable person and that some valuable objects were found and for this it could not be a piracy practice.

There is a third theory that seems to be more reasonable and it matches with some experiments done. This theory explains that due to the fact that the ship carried alcohol (and by first time) some of the barrels could liquid and generate fumes that the crew feels like dangerous and then they decided to abandon the ship but they get lost on the sea or they die from starvation.

PostSubject: Mary Celeste's mistery   Sat Jan 10, 2009 8:10 am

The lecture presents a very different point of view if compared to the passage, where the most likely explanation of the mistery is considered a mutiny happened aboard, in which the crew would have killed the captain. From the lecture it doesn’t seem a possible explanation, due to Captain Briggs high consideration, who was known to be very respected from his crew.
From the lecture I just heard it seems instead that the most likely explanation to justify Mary Celest’s mistery is the fact that Captain Briggs and his crew were worried about a possible Fire inside the ship and scared of such a great danger they abandoned the ship before it actually exploded. In fact they were carrying 1701 bariles of alcohol from New York to Italy and the fact that 9 barils out of 1701 were found empty in Portugal could be the explanation of their fear. Those barils could have been rotten and captain Briggs aware of those licks could have suggested abandoning the ship in advance. It seems that although Benjamin Briggs was very brave captain he had a great fear of fire, this trip was in fact the first time in which he was carrying such a dangerous equipment on his ship.

PostSubject: answer to the writing task 1   Sat Feb 14, 2009 12:09 am

The reading passage mentions the ship " Mary Celeste" and the theories that are associate with its sudden disappearances and the Professor explains how these reasons were later challenged and about the various other causes that were given .

Mary Celeste according to the author was also called the "ghost ship" ,was found near the cost of portugal , completely abandoned. It was set to complete it voyage from New york to to italy via genoa. Neither the crew members or the captian were found. The theory behind this was suspected that the crew might have killed the captian Benjamin Briggs and his family and then deserted the ship. However the professor says that the captain had a good reputation and it was very unlikely of the crew to do such a thing.

The second theory postulated was that, the British crew who found the ship at the coast of Portugal might have killed the ship members and crew and then stolen valuables from the ship, including 9 barrels of alcohol out of 1701 barrels.But even this theory was ruled out as the lecturer tells that the british captain "D Gracias" who found the ship was a good friend of the captain, so, such a situation was unlikely.

The possible explanation give to the ships disappearance was that the ship had a lot of alcohol and this made the captain nervous that the ship might explode due to it. He had never taken a voyage that carried alcohol before. A few barrels might have exploded causing fumes and thus in the fear that the ship would blow up the captain and his crew opened the potholes and the hatches and abandoned the ship and left on a lifeboat. It is suspected taht they might have died due to starvation or a storm in the sea eventually.

Thus in this fashion the professor and the reading passage have a contrasts in their opinion regarding the disappearance of the ship "Mary Celeste".

The mystery of ‘Mary Celeste’ ,the so-called ‘ghost ship’, has been tried to be solved by many historians for a long time.
In his lecture, the professor cast doubts on the two possible explanations given by the reading passage about what happened to the ‘Mary Celeste’.
First of all, the professor doesn’t agree with the theory of a mutiny aboard the ship as captain B. Briggs was known to be a very experienced and respected person.
Also, he thinks it’s pretty strange that ,had the crew revolted against the captain and killed him, they then didn’t take any of their belongings before escaping.
Secondly the professor disagrees with the other theory which supports the idea that the ship and crew that found ‘Mary Celeste’ may have been the responsible of the tragedy as they may have stolen and killed everyone aboard. ‘Not True’ says the professor. In fact the captain of the ship that found ‘Mary Celeste’ seemed to be a friend of captain Briggs; plus, it hadn’t been found any evidence or anything suspicious to support this idea.
So the professor explains that, according to some new studies, the most likely explanation to this mystery is the one of an explosion caused by alcohol fumes.
Captain Briggs and his crew were transporting a pretty big quantity of alcohol and some of it was found on the floor of the ship as if it had leaked.
So it is plausible that both the captain and the crew discovered it and, fearing that would cause and explosion, they abandoned the ship and then either died starving or sinking.
