NEW: chocolate is good for your heart

A study carried out in Germany has found that chocolate may be good for your heart. This is fantastic news for all chocolate lovers. The extensive research was conducted over eight years. The research team followed the chocolate-eating habits and health of almost 20,000 people.

The German study showed that people who ate the most chocolate (at least one bar per week) reduced their risk of having a heart attack by 27 per cent. 

Great new for all the chocolate lovers! I'm always surprise with all the studies that they scientists perform. I think that maybe chocolate is not bad for our heart, but it's not So good for our health, with that I mean that we can eat chocolate but not to much, because all in excess could be danger for us. 


NEW: Cut music to an hour a day

The World Health Organisation is worried that 1.1 billion teenagers and people in their twenties and early thirties are damaging their hearing by listening to loud music.It says nearly half the young people in middle- and high-income countries risk hearing loss because of the "unsafe use" of personal music players, including smartphones.

Dr Krug said keeping the volume down and limiting the use of personal audio devices to less than one hour a day would save a lot of people's hearing. However, he also said that, "even an hour can be too much if the volume is too loud".

After that new, I keep the volum down if I listen music, because it can affect my health. But Currently some smartphones tell you with a message if you listen the music to loud, and they recomended a ideal volume to listen music.


NEW: Paris declares war on the sticks of selfies

The sticks of selfies are everywhere. The French capital has decided to ban it in different places in the city and especially several museums, including the Louvre. It is seen that the decision was for security reasons, with the risk that carelessness can cause broken figures, shattering a porcelain vase, a sculpture or throw away the eye of another visitor.

I sincerely believe that this safety action is too exaggerated, because the using of this sticks can't be danger in my opinion, maybe in a possible situation it colud hapen and this would be a very big tragedy for the cultural area, because imagine that you break the picure of the Monalisa from Da Vinci. 

When we think about it, if this happens they would be a big scanddal, and to avoid it they forbid the using of this sticks in the museums.

HAPPINESS VS PROBLEMS


In our daily life we have problems and worries, but we must life with they. The life is not a bed of roses, it's hard but sometimes we must forget all the negative facts in our life and only focus the positive, for example remember good memories, stay with the family and try to find the bright side of things. Sometimes we must accept our situation and fight with our worries and problems.

In our life the hapiness is the best feeling that we could have, and I thing that this quotes describe exactly the concept of hapiness, because problems always exist, and that doesn't means that we can't be happy. That is the reason why we must fight for our life.

Life is definitely set goals and to reach them there will always be difficulties and problems and if we don't fight them, we will never achieve happiness.

NEW: automaker produce cars of the future

Automakers around the world are planning to make cars that are smaller, use up less fuel and do not damage our environment. At auto shows around the globe car producers are presenting what they have in mind.

Carmakers are also spending money on research to make alternative-fuel cars. Maybe one day, most of us will drive biodiesel, hydrogen, or solar-powered cars.

Currently the technology evolves very fast, and I think that if the automakers use it for create this ecology cars, they can help a lot in the economy of the consumers, and also respect the enviroment.  This a fact that we must have present in our daily life. I think that if they can apply this tecnology in the cars the also can use this technology in other transports, for example the planes.

NEW: Sportswear maker accused of sexism

An Indonesian sportswear manufacturer has had to apologise for a label on its merchandise that people deemed to be sexist. The label appeared on the shirts of one of the country's top football clubs, Super League team Pusamania Borneo. It read: "Washing instructions: Give this shirt to a woman. It's her job."

The company was quick to offer an apology and said it did not mean to denigrate women.

It's very sad for me see this types of news in the 21 century, because when you think that womans became equality in the society appears all this news. It's very primitive have this mentality, because nowadays the womens study and work in the same areas that mans, and for this reason they need a respect.

NEW: 30 million people invited to read books

The co-founder of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, has launched what could be the world's largest ever book club. Zuckerberg announced last week that his New Year's resolution was to read a book every other week.

He then invited his 30 million followers to join him in his literary pursuit. He created his own Facebook page called A Year of Books, on which he will announce what his latest read is and ask people to discuss the book with him.

I think it's a very nice action from Zuckerberg because it's a cultural fact, and when  public figures use they power about they followers to expand the pleasure of reading I find that it's amazing. Because he motivate peolple to discuss about the books with him.


I NEED HOLLYDAYS!

Now we're at the end of the second turn, I can't more. I need Hollidays, and the next break in batxillerat is easter, I don't know if I travel Somewhere.  But now when I'm stressed with all, I just close my eyes and imagine a beautiful place, away from all my problems and concerns.


It's rarely but this place that I imagine always change, it depends of my feelings, sometimes I imagine sunny and warm day in a beautiful island with white sand and clear whater. Another landscape  I also imagine is a snowy forrest, now you can see that it's completely the opposite of the first one. Maybe if I'm in stress I prefer the caribian island and when I'm sad I prefer the winter landscape, because when I see snow I think about my family and Germany, and this makes me fell a little bit better.

Now I prefer the island, and you?

                                  

FIFTY SHADES OF GREY

Some weeks ago, the expected film adaption from the first book of  E.L. James arrives to the cinemas around the world. The story of Anastasia and Cristian Grey caused much controversy, for some people the film was great and for other people the film adaptation was disappointing. 

I'm in the group of the "likers", because I think that if we forget for a moment the sadomasochism, we can see a very interesting love story between Ana & Cristian, maybe it's not the typical one, yet this is exactly the special thing of this film, because the make a big revolution int the romantic area. This special love story has a big evolution in the next two parts, and the sadomasochism lose some importance.

Definitely 50 shades of grey is one of that films that your never forget, because they broke with all the typical romantic films yet the essence of love is also manifested.




SKYPE WITH NOA

Few days ago our English teachers decide to make a skype connection with an ex student of the school. This student was Noa, they chose her because she makes a gap year in Australia.

First Noa explain us her daily life, and her job, then she explain us a little bit of Australia and her likes and dislikes. After that began our questions time , we make some groups and every group makes her questions  about her Gap year.

After we spoke with Noa, I could see that she improves a lot her English level and pronunciation, and that makes me think about a possible Gap year in London.
