he poisoning of the world\'s land, air, and water is the fastest - spreading disease of civilization.
Overpopulation, pollution and energy consumption have created such planet wide problems as massive deforestation, ozone depletion, acid rains and the global
warming that is believed to be caused by the greenhouse effect.
The seas are in danger. They are filled with poison: industrial and nuclear waste, chemical fertilizers and pesticides. The Mediterranean is already nearly dead;
the North Sea is following. The Aral Sea is on the brink of extinction. If nothing is done about it, one day nothing will be able to live in the seas.
Every ten minutes one kind of animal, plant or insect dies out for ever. If nothing is done about it, one million species that are alive today will have become
extinct twenty years from now.
Air pollution is
very serious problem. In Cairo just breathing the air is life threatening — equivalent to smoking two packs of cigarettes
day. The same holds true for Mexico City and 600 cities of the former Soviet Union.
Industrial enterprises emit tons of harmful substances. These emissions have disastrous consequences for our planet. They are the main reason for the greenhouse
effect and acid rains.
An even greater environmental threat are nuclear power stations. We all know how tragic the consequences of the Chernobyl disaster are.
People are beginning to realize that environmental problems are not somebody else\'s. They join and support various international organizations and green parties. If governments
wake up to what is happening — perhaps we\'ll be able to avoid the disaster that threatens the natural world and all of us with it.
Every country has it’s own great people: scientists, poets and writers, politicians, musicians, composers and actors. But I would like to tell you about the great British
politician Sir Winston Churchill.
Winston Leonard Churchill was without doubt the ruling figure in British politics during the 1
st half of the 20
th century. He was born in 1874. His mother was American, the daughter of a New York businessman; his father belonged to an English aristocratic family. He was given the
typical education of that period for the person of his background. From 1895 until 1899 he combined the jobs of soldier and journalist in Cuba, India and Sudan. In 1899 he resigned
from the army and began his political career. He was an active and popular member of the Conservative Party, but later he changed his political views and joined the Liberal Party. He
won many political victories and had as many failures.
In 1910 he became Home Secretary, but he lost some of his popularity when he used the army to help the police put down the miners’ strike.
For some years he was out of office and spent his time writing and painting. In the twentieth he returned to Conservative Party.
In 1924 he was elected to Parliament. In 1940 Churchill was appointed Prime Minister. He formed a coalition government with the war cabinet of five; he was Prime Minister until
He returned once more as Prime Minister in 1951. Highly regarded as a painter, Churchill also received the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1953 for his account of the Second World
War. He predicted that an “Iron Curtain” would divide Europe from north to south and this left his mark on the period of the Cold War. He died in London in 1965.
Most people say that
family is very important for them. They like to repeat that families give them
sense of tradition, strength and purpose in their lives. ’’Our families show what we are\", they say. Most parents teach their children to respect elder people and
observe holidays. But the most important thing for
family is to give an emotional support and security. The right family values help boys and girls to gain confidence and resist the influence of bad
Teenagers often consider their parents old-fashioned, unaware of the latest style. As for their parents they do their best to give their children
better chance than they had themselves. After finishing school children often try to get complete independence, they leave their homes and sometimes even their
native towns. Staying with parents has its negative and positive aspects but children must understand that parents don\' t want to do them any harm. That\'s why sometimes young people
have to listen to criticism from their parents.
Some people often speak about the so-called \"generation gap\" that is
gap in views between parents and teenagers, but the majority of people think that this generation gap is sometimes exaggerated. Very often children feel neglected
in their families. When they find cruelty, indifference and misunderstanding in their families they become divide and heartless themselves. As
result children feel hurt and some of them try to escape from the reality by tuning to alcohol and drugs. So all of us should pay more attention to family
problems, we must avoid quarrels and look for consent. We must remember about spiritual values and all people should live in peace and harmony.
Music plays a very important role in our daily life. We are accompanied by it everywhere: on TV and radio, at home, and even at school. Wherever we go in the evening to cafe or
bar, to club or to a disco - everywhere we will be met by music. In such places music is their integral part, because it raise the spirit of the visitors, makes the atmosphere more
comfortable and more cheerfully.
As for me, I listen to music with pleasure. Music always helps me. When I am bored or have a bad mood, I always listen to music, it always raises my spirit and
makes entourage more cheerful, when I have an excellent mood, I turn on music, something cheerful and active and I feel myself on the top of bliss. I have a lot of cassettes and CDs
with the different music from classics to rock. From music I like everything, that sounds well, but most of all I like modern music, because I am a modern man and I try to go together
with the time.
From the modern performers I like the American group \" The Offspring \" most of all. I like their music, because it is energetic and dynamic, but most of all I like
the texts of songs of this group, they are sometimes sad, sometimes ironic, but never boring, because it is spoken there about problems of youth, about everything, that troubles a
modern society. I dream of visiting sometimes a concert of this group.
From classics I like Mozart most of all. I admire the talent of this great musician and composer. He composed music, played on a violin and
clavecin, when he was 5 years, when other children are not able to read yet. During the 34 years of life he wrote 18 operas, 50 symphonies, 30 concerts for a piano, a lot
of sonatas and songs. Especially I like three most famous Mozart’s symphonies. It is the symphony № 39, it shows there the life of the man with her difficulties an...
