The prizes are administered by the Nobel Foundation in Stockholm. In 1969, a prize for
economics endowed by the Central Bank of Sweden was added. Candidates for the prizes must be
nominated in writing a qualified authority in the filed of competitions. Recipients in physics,
chemistry, and economics are selected by the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences; and physiology or
medicine by the Caroline Institute; in literature by the Swedish Academy; and in peace by the
Norwegian Nobel Committee appointed by Norway's parliament. The prizes are usually in Stockholm

CHAT WITH FRIENDS IN AN INSTANT (by Chris Toney)
A. Ways to communicate. D. Speed and flexibility.
4
B. Getting started. E. Communicating with friends online.
C. Choose your category. F. Long - distance solution.
1. D
Instant messaging -or IM- is more immediate than e-mail as you don't have to check your inbox
for new messages - they appear instantly. Another advantage is that more than two people at a time can
join in an IM conversation, so it's ideal for, say, making social arrangements among groups of friends.
2.
Communication by IM isn't restricted to text. You can send pictures stored on your computer,
and if you have microphones and speakers you can talk - the advantage being that internet charges are
usually cheaper than phone calls. If you and a friend have webcams, you can also make a video call, in
which you can see as well as hear each other.
3.
John Moran, 13, from Southport uses instant messaging to keep in touch with relatives on the
other side of the world. "When I go online I swap messages with my cousins in Australia", says John.
It's much cheaper than phoning them and means I can speak to them more often". Carol Taylor, 24,
who lives in Argentina, agrees. "My parents live in the UK, and we prefer using an instant messengers
to sending email or text messages as it's more like a real conversation", she says. "I'd rather chat online
than call them as it costs so much less".
4.
The fist step in using IM is to download a piece of software from one of the websites that offer
the service. If you already have friends who use IM, find out which program they have. It's free, doesn't
take long to download and the only costs you face are the standard call charges while you're on line.
5.
Once you've installed this software and connected to the Internet you can start exchanging
messages with your friends online. Each user of the service has their own user name. If you find out the
user name of people you know, you can create a friend lists. Then, when you go on line, the software
tells you which of them are also connected to the Internet, and you can send them a message.
6.
The features on offer vary depending on which service you opt for, although there is not much
difference between instant messenger packages. As well as allowing you to use microphones and
webcams, most give you a range of options regarding your status. You can usually appear as "online",
"busy" or "away from PC". The "busy" status is useful if you're online but don't want to be disturbed.
The "away from PC" status is usually used by those who are permanently online (people who have
broadband or an office connection) but aren't always at their computer.
