BOOT CAMPS

A boot camp is a militarized camp for teens who have bad behavior. It is a kind of reformatory institution which is very popular in the United States. There instructors make teens improve their behavior and be more positive about the future. In my opinion, I think that boot camps are a good idea in some cases.

As I see it, boot camps are a good idea since the most part of teens who have been there said that at first they hated it, but at the end they are grateful to have been there as they were out of control but after the boot camp they have changed their lives-

Personally, I think if I had bad behavior, miss school... In short, if I was out of control and my parents sent me to a boot camp, I would do anything so that my parents wouldn't send me there.

In conclusion, I believe that boot camps are a good option for some teens as they help them for the future.

WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF YOU WON A MILLION EUROS ON THE LOTTERY?

If I won a million euros, I would be shocked at firt, but later I would be jumping of joy. It is obious that, if you won the lottery, you would be happy because now you could do a lot of things with that money you can not do before.

The first thing that I would do is travelling around the world. The first places that I would visit are: Thailand, Japan and Ireland ( as the last time that I went there was amazing and I had so much fun). I would buy my parents whatever they want and I would give some money to charity, too. I would save the rest of the money for the future and I might ask for advice on how to invest it.

I do not think that winning one million euros would make a big difference to my life, and it would not change my future. Because I would go to university to get a job in the future.

If I had that money I would not waste it in unnecessary things, I would not leave my studies, either. In addition, I would not broast about my money and I would not trust people who suddenly would want to be my friends.

WOULD YOU LIKE TO LIVE FOREVER?

I am sure that everyone has ever thought to be able to live more than 100 years or forever. Some scientists, like for example Ray Kutzweill, say that in 2045 human beings will be inmortal, bacause science is developing the necessary technology to do it. The only thing that people have to do is stay healthy.

On the one hand, it would be incredible and amazing to live more than 100 years or forever, because I could do all things that I want to do ( like travelling around the world and visiting different cultures ) and enjoy life.

On the other hand, I think that it would be boring and I would be afraid to die because the only way to die it would be for an accident or a serious illness. In conclusion, I would like to live forever.

I think in the year 3000 eveything will be completely different. According to an investigaror from London School of Economics and Political Science, humans will be taller and  there will be no racial differences. Technology will be amazing, but one of the problems is that social skills will decrease.

EVERYONE SHOULD LEARN ENGLISH

Nowadays, English is described as "the language of opportunities", but there are a lot of people who do not think the same, also they think that learning English or any other language is a waste of time. There are several points to consider.

On the one hand, there are a lot of adventages for example you can meet new people and make friends from other countries, you will be able to undertand the lyrics of American and British songs, it makes easier to get a job and if you, for example, travel to England you will undertand their culture better because you can speak English.

On the other hand, there are people who think that it's no necessary to learn a language because millions of people speak Spanish and there are many jobs that do no need foreign languages. One of the disadvantages is that it takes a lot of time and effort.

To sum up, there are advantages and disadvantages but, from my pint of view, learning English or any other language is very important for your future.

“THE DAY AGAINST GENDER VIOLENCE”


 Resultado de imagen de FOTOS CONTRA LA LUCHA DE GENERO

I have always wondered why we celebrate “The day against gender violence” on November 25? The reason why we celebrete this day on November 25 is because on this date in 1960 in Latin America three sisters were murdered by order of the dictator Rafael Leónidas Trujillo because they were against his dictatorship. Since 1981 Latin America has celebrated this day in their honor and Europe since 1999.

Since ever women have always had to fight for their rights, because they were considered inferior to men. They were not allowed to be educated, to get a job and other things that would be allowed for a man. During years we have moved towards a more egalitarian society, because for example before Christ the society thought that women were a natural defect.

There a lot of women who have fought for their rights like Concepción Arenal, who was born in 1820 in La Coruña, she studied law at the Central University of Madrid when it wasn’t allowed for women to study yet. It was with her when feminism was born in Spain. Another example is Clara Campomar, who was born in Madrid in 1888 and is one of the great figures of the struggle for the equal rights of women. She created the Feminine Republican Union in Spain.

To sum up, we are in the 21st century and, from my point of view, gender violence or other violence should not exist. We should not be used to all theses pieces of news that appear on television such as “This week a man has killed his wife” or “He has beaten his girlfriend to death”.

BOB DYLAN

Bob Dylan, whose real name is Robert Allen Zimmerman, was born in United States on 24th May 1941. He is a musician, singer and songwriter, who was really influential in the twentieth and twenty-first century. His songs have a variety of social, political, philosophical and literary themes. He is 75 years old now and lives in Malibu.

Some of his most famous songs are “Like a Rolling Stone”, “Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door” and “Lay Lady Lay”. During his career, which started in 1959, he has won a lot of awards. Some of his awards are Prince of Asturias Awards, Golden Globe Awards, Grammy Awards and Grammy Hall of Fame.

But the most famous award is the Nobel Prize for Literature this year, which has caused different opinions: the first is that he doesn’t deserve the award because there are a lot of better writers and poets before him, and they only give him the award for publicity; and the second is that he deserves the award for the amazing lyrics of his songs, but sadly for the people who think that he deserves it the director of the Nobel Foundation has stated that he had already arranged some appointments.

From my point of view, only poets and writers should win this award, not songwriters although they have written amazing lyrics.
