Help Wild Animals

We think it is necessary to help wild animals. Many of them are in danger now. For example, pandas which live in the jungle and white bears which live in the Antarctic.

White bears eat fish. If people pollute rivers and seas, animals die.

All woods are home to animals and birds. It is important to take care of them. If trees are damaged and flowers and grass are cut, birds and animals may be extinct.

Each of us can do something to help nature. We must not frighten animals or bird. We must never break plants or baby trees. We are proud of our classmates who have made some bird feeders this winter and filled them with food. There are many squirrels in the park near our school every winter. We believe they come here to ask for help, because they eat from our hands.

We are sure that not only Greenpeace, Friends of Earth or Wildlife Service can take care of nature.

There are a lot of ways of keeping the planet healthy and we must take part in environmental activities.

Lets help wild animals and birds! We announce a contest for the most interesting ideas and plans.

Local Environmental Problems

We are the caretakers of the earth. We know that polluted air, water and land are harmful to plants, animals and people.

As a result of our investigation we found out that 17 districts of our region are severely polluted. People of Penza, Serdobsk, Kuznetsk, Belinsky and other towns of Penza region suffer from smog. Their industries pour their waste into rivers Sura, Ivanovka, Insarka and others. Many purifying systems dont work well.

Every year Penza region plants pollute the atmosphere with about 12 thousand tons of harmful substances. These are very dangerous wastes. They go into the air and are carried by winds for great distances.

As a result many animals have become extinct, for example, golden eagle, musk-rat, etc.

60% of air pollution is caused by different means of transport: cars, trucks, buses. Penza plants use about 60 thousand auotomobiles, over 100 thousand cars are in private use. Public anxiety has grown after the Chernobyl disaster, which resulted in radio-active pollution of vast territories, including Penza region.

Then we must remember, that when we use aerosol sprays we destroy the ozone layer, which protects the Earth from the dangerous ultraviolet rays of the sun.

The list of serious environmental problems could be continued and we invite you all to take part in environmental actions to keep our town and region suitable for living.

Welcome to Our Home Town. , .

Welcome to Our Home Town

A warm Penza welcome awaits you at the Penza Hotel, superbly located downtown on the banks of the river Sura. Within walking distance of the hotel are wonderful dining and shopping opportunities, including the exclusive shops of Moscovskaya street. Experience a wonderful Theatre production, or take in a concert at Concert Hall.

Other nearby attractions include the Circus, the Savitsky Art Gallery and the Folk Crafts Museum, the Belinsky Park.

No doubt you have plenty of other places to go, because Penza is a city full of sights, history and atmosphere. You can reach any part of Penza easily and enjoy the bus ride.

At the end of your day, return to the comfort and relaxation of the Penza Hotel where all the comforts of home await you!

Experience the charms of Penza!

The Stone Age was a period of history which began in approximately million B.C. and lasted until 3000 B.C. Its name was derived from the stone tools and weapons that modern scientists found. This period was divided into the Paleolithic, Mesolithic and Neolithic Ages. During the first period, (2 million to 8000 B.C.) the first hatchet and use of fire for heating and cooking were developed. As a result of the Ice Age, which evolved about 1 million years into the Paleolithic Age, people were forced to seek shelter in caves, and develop new tools.

During the Mesolithic Age (8000 to 6000 B.C.) people made crude pottery and the first fish hooks, took dogs hunting, and developed a bow and arrow, which was used until the fourteenth century A.D.

The Neolithic Age (6000 to 3000 B.C.) saw humankind domesticating sheep, goats, pigs, and cattle, being less nomadic than in previous eras, establishing permanent settlements, and creating governments.

The Spartans lived in that part of southern Greece called Laconia. Sometimes people called them Spartans and sometimes Laconians. Those people were very brave and their way of life was very simple. One of their rules was that they should always speak very briefly () using no more words than were necessary. To this day we often call a short answer laconic; that is, such an answer as a Laconian might give.

There was in northern Greece a land called Macedonia, ruled over by a king, Philip by name. Philip wanted to become head of all Greece. He had a great army and conquered state after state. But although his strength was so great, Laconia remained free. When Philip reached Laconia, he sent a letter to the brave Spartans saying, If I conquer your country, I will level your great city to the ground. In a few days he saw the answer brought to him. Upon opening the letter he found only one word written in it. That word was If.

Children and Work

England could be growing richer using the workforce of schoolchildren who are working too young. Perhaps England has about a million children workers.

A national study that will be organised by specialist Chris Pond, will find out if employers are making young people do difficult work for a childs wages.

Mr. Pond says the aim of the study is not to stop childrens work. He thinks many young people enjoy working - and they especially enjoy the pocket money they earn. However, they may also be paid less money. They risk being in danger and they miss school very often.

Six weeks ago the Government started a campaign against children missing classes, with a plan to punish parents who allow their children not to go to school regularly. Politicians were shocked by a new report which showed as many a seven out of 10 children who dont got to school at least once a month.

Through his study, Mr. Pond also hopes to find out what children spend their money on. I dont expect to find that they are working to help their families- although some might be. Most are likely to be spending money on compact discs and sporting clothes for themselves, he said.

1. What becomes clear from this part of the text?

In England

A. children who have a job earn a lot of money.

B. many children who are not old enough have jobs.

C. parents often force their children to take on jobs.

2. What will Chris Pond try to find out?

A. What kind of work children ususally do.

B. Whether working children are paid too little.

C. Why so many children have jobs.

3. What does this part of the text make clear?

A. Children should not be allowed to work for money.

B. Young people often know the disadvanges of jobs very well.

C. Working not only has positive but also negative sides for children.

4. What sort of campaign did the Government start six weeks ago?

A campaign against

A. children behaving badly to teachers.

B. children having all kinds of jobs.

C. children staying away from school a lot.

5. What does Mr. Pond want to find out?

A. How much money working children have to give to their parents.

Walt Disneys World

Walt Disney was an American original, a man who developed the animated film into an art form. A brillant businessman, he also created Disneyland which proved to be as much an innovation in the world of outdoor entertainment as Disney films were in the world of motion pictures. From the very beginning of his remarkable career, Walt Disney lived on the edge of tomorrow. Dreaming impossible dreams. And daring to make them come true.

Walt Disney was born in Chicago in 1901. His father was Irish-Canadian and his mother was of German-American origin. He remembered nothing of his early years in Chicago, but the memories of Marceline, Missouri, stayed with him throughout his life. He revealed a talent for drawing and an interest in photography very early.

In 1911, when Walt was ten years old, the family moved to Kansas City. Mr. Disney bought a newspaper delivery business, and the father expected Walt to help with the newspaper business and deliver newspapers. After school Walt and his brother worked for their father. On Saturday mornings Walt took classes in painting and drawing at the Kansas City Art Institute.

Then one day Walt saw a silent film version of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. This film and the way it was projected onto the screen fascinated Walt.

In 1917 Walt Disney moved to Chicago and took a job at the post office. He worked long hours delivering mail, going to school and taking classes at Chicagos Academy of Fine Arts.

Some of his pictures were cartoons in the Chicago newspapers. He drew comic pictures and sketches of politicians and people in the news. The short comments under them poked fun at them.

Elias Disney, Walts father, could not understand his sons fascination with the entertainment world, nor did his sympathize with Walts ambition to be a cartoonist.

During the First World War, Walt Disney joined the American Red Cross as an ambulance driver, but when in 1919 the American Ambulance Corps was disbanded, he boarded the ship for the voyage back to America and the start of his career.

He went back to Kansas City where he got a job with an advertising company. It lasted only six weeks, but it taught him many things about working in the art field.

His next job was drawing cartoons for screen advertisement in movie theatres, just like TV commercials today. By 1923, Hollywood had become a company town, and movie makers started arriving in California.

Walt Disney asked for work as a director and was turned away. There were no cartoonists in Hollywood; the animation business was centered in New York. He found a man in New York to buy his films and hired some art students. Together they made seven animated cartoons but the man in New York ran off with the money made from the cartoons. Walt was forced to close his company, but wasnt discouraged. He loved cartoons and was full of ideas. He decided to start all over again in California where movies were being made.

In Hollywood Walt rented an old camera and a garage which he turned into a small studio. He made a series of Alice in Cartoonland cartoons. Cinema owners bought them as quickly as he could make them. In 1927, he had some success with the series called Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, but it was not until 1928, when Steamboat Willie appeared, the first Mickey Mouse with sound, that he achieved lasting success. Mickey Mouse became a household word, together with such companions as Minnie, Pluto, and perhaps the favourite of them all- Donald Duck.

By 1930, Walt Disney had created 12 Mickey Mouse cartoons. They all were very popular with children and adults all over the world.

Then another great invention was made- colour in movies. Walt started making long colour cartoons. These included Pinocchio, Bambi, Cinderella, Alice in Wonderland and many others.

After World War II Walt made not only animated films, but movies about real animals. The film, Seal Island was made. Later Walt made many nature films, among them Beaver Valleyand Living Desert.

In 1955, he branched out into a different enterprise- Disneyland, a huge amusement park in southern California. Of all the show places, none was as famous as Disneyland. This superb kingdom of fantasy linked to technology was created by Walt Disney.

Honours were given to Walt Disney. The highest came on September 14, 1964, when President Johnson presented him with the Medal of Freedom at the White House.

Walt Disney died in 1966 at the age of 65. the New York Times wrote, He had a genius for innovation; his production was enormous; his hand was ever on the public pulse. He was a legend in his own lifetime- and so honored many times over.

Walt Disney is gone but each year lots of new movies and cartoons are made in his studios.
