Companies are often in need of funds before they can build a stable customer base, so they are forced to turn to investors. Many such businesses soon discover, however, that this borrowed money can come at a high price. If entrepreneurs are not careful about which investors they do business with, their companies can suffer the consequences. The most common problem, according to financial experts, are investment deals that allow the investor to take control of key operations away from the company's management. Struggling firms and new businesses facing mounting start-up costs can be easily tempted to take the offer that provides them with the most money, regardless of the deal's conditions. Unfortunately, the biggest investment usually comes with the most strings attached. For example, some deals give the venture capital finn seats on the board of the company it invests in. From this position, the investor has the ability to control all aspects of a company's operations,including decisions concerning mergers or sales. This situation may remain tolerable as long as the investor and the management share the same goals. Yet, the investor will inevitably choose to protect its own interests over those of the company, creating a conflict that the company is then helpless to prevent. The best advice analysts have for businesses seeking investment capital is to thoroughly analyze any deal before agreeing to it. Sometimes, the control that must be given up is worth much more than the money being offered. Who would be most interested in this article?
[多选题]根据下列内容,回答206-210题。 Social change is more likely to occur in societies where there is a mixture of different kinds ofpeople than in societies where people are similar in many ways. The simple reason for this is thatthere are more different ways of looking at things present in the first kind of society. There aremore ideas, more disagreements in interest, and more groups and organizations with differentbeliefs. In addition, there is usually a greater worldly interest and greater tolerance in mixedsocieties. All these factors tend to promote social change by opening more areas of life to decision. In a society where people are quite similar in many ways, there are fewer occasions for people tosee the need or the opportunity for change because everything seems to be the same. And althoughconditions may not be satisfactory, they are at least customary and undisputed. Within a society, social changes is also likely to occur more frequently and more readily inthe material aspects of the culture than in the non-material, for example, in technology rather thanin values; in what has been learned later in life rather than what was learned early; in the lessbasic and less emotional aspects of society than in their opposites; in the simple elements ratherthan in the complex ones; in form rather than in substance; and in elements that are acceptable tothe culture rather than in strange elements. Furthermore, social change is easier if it is gradual. For example, it comes more readily inhuman relations on a continuous scale rather than one with sharp difference. This is one reason whychange has not come more quickly to Black Americans as compared to other American minorities,because of the sharp difference in appearance between them and their white counterparts. The passage is mainly discussing__________.
[多选题]根据下列内容,回答216-220题。 The men who race the cars are generally small, with a tight, nervous look. They range fromthe early 20s to the middle 40s, and it is usually their nerves that go first. Fear is the driver's constant companion, and tragedy can be just a step behind. Scarcely a manin the 500 does not carry the scars of ancient crashes. The mark of the plastic surgeon is every-where, and burned skin is common. Sometimes a driver's scars are invisible, part of his heritage. Twoyoung drivers, Billy Vukovich and Gary Bettenhausen, raced in their first 500 in 1968. Less than 20years before, their fathers also competed against one another on the Indy track--and died there. All this the drivers accept. Over the years, they have learned to trust their own techniques,reflexes, and courage. They depend, too, on a trusted servant--scientific engineering. Though theymay not have had a great deal of schooling(an exception is New Zealand's Bruce McLaren, whohas an engineering degree), many drivers are gifted mechanics, with a feeling for their enginesthat amount to kinship. A few top drivers have become extremely wealthy, with six-figure incomes from prize money,endorsements, and jobs with auto-product manufacturers. Some have businesses of their own. McLaren designs racing chassis (底盘). Dan Gurney's California factory manufactured the chassisof three of the first four ears in the 1968 Indy 500, including his own second place car. Yet money is not the only reason why men race cars. Perhaps it isn't even the major reason. Three-time Indy winner (1961,1964,1967) A. J. Foyt, for example, can frequently be foundcompeting on dirty tracks in minor-league races, where money, crowds and safety features are limit-ed, and only the danger is not. Why does he do it7Sometimes Foyt answers,"It's in my blood." Other times he says, "It is good practice." Now and then he replies, "Don't ask dumb questions." The statement "it is usually their nerves that go first" means
