|Больша́я па́нда (кит. трад. 熊貓, упрощ. 熊猫, пиньинь Xióngmāo; лат. Ailuropoda melanoleuca — «чёрно-белый котоног»), бамбуковый медведь — млекопитающее, в настоящее время относимое к семейству медвежьих, родиной которого является центральный Китай. Большая панда живёт в горных регионах, таких как Сычуань и Тибет. Со второй половины XX века панда стала чем-то вроде национальной эмблемы Китая.|
Китайское имя означает «медведь-кошка», при этом если читать его наоборот то оно означает то же самое. Его западное имя происходит от малой панды. Раньше его также называли пятнистый медведь (Ailuropus melanoleucus).

|The lion (Panthera leo) is a member of the family Felidae and one of four "big cats" in the genus Panthera. Reaching 272 kg (600 lb), it is the second-largest cat after the tiger. They currently exist in the wild in sub-Saharan Africa and in Asia with a critically endangered remnant population in northwest India, having disappeared from North Africa, the Middle East and western Asia in historic times. Until the late Pleistocene (about 10,000 years ago), the lion was the most widespread large land mammal beside man. They were found in most of Africa, much of Eurasia from western Europe to India and the Bering land bridge and in the Americas from Yukon to Peru.|

small poem about irish people and irish life????
A Hitchhiker for a guide
While traveling through Ireland, I often enough had passengers - local people hitchhiking home, to their jobs or wherever else. Some were silent people, but many of them more than a bit chatty ... must have been my charm =^^=
Among the many I met, I will mention two here ... but I'm grateful for all I met - they showed my sides of Ireland I would have never discovered otherwise, and blessed me with many insights about Ireland, Irish people, life, women, men, love, sheep, whiskey, God, sisters-in-law and so much more... some quite dazzling, others... oh well ^^; ... at least it never got boring.
The first passengers I took with me were actually two young girls on their way to the next village where they wanted to meet some friends. It was on my second day in Ireland - I was still struggling a bit with the English language and especially the Irish accent, but those two young ladies helped me a lot and in a very charming way... not just with my struggles with English. Be it that they told me about how the Irish tend to ignore all speed limits - while in recent years the police started to enforce the same more strictly (this early warning probably saved me from quite a few speeding tickets ^^;), how hitchhiking is normal (at least in rural areas of Ireland), where to look for good and tasty food in the area, or gave me my first insights in Irish social life in the more rural areas of the island... while I told them about Germany and shared my lunch with them, as they shared their drinks with me. I'm still glad that I gave them a lift that hot day on a small road in the middle of nowhere ... for it was the beginning of meeting many interesting people.
The second passenger I will tell about was really 'one in a million' ^^; ... born in Ireland, he lived in England just to come back since 'nothing's like Ireland, you know'. He worked in Galway, but lived in a small village somewhere in Connemara - and his car had been stolen a few days ago. I drove him almost right in front of his doorstep, but first we made a few detours ... since he offered me to show his part of Connemara to me ... explaining the breathtaking sights on the way. I doubt that I would have ever seen half of the beauty of this rugged county without his help, nor ever got to know even a quarter of what he told me ... and not just about the places he showed me. In the hours we drove through Connemara, we chatted about countless things ... about topics like: 'The Irish and The English' ('Of course there are still some English around here - well, they are Irish, but they are still English' ... at least that is the summarization of about half an hour ^^;) ... 'Irish people are not superstitious' (ten minutes later he pointed out a house to me which is haunted ... half an hour later we talked about how different places have different vibes...) ... 'Religion in Ireland' ('I'm catholic - it comes with the passport' ^^;) ... 'Energy in Ireland' (after a short chat about the situation in Ireland I was practically invited with my company - the one which is into alternative energy systems - to re-settle in Ireland ... remember - all Irish people _own_ their entire island!) ... and on and on ... I can't help but smile again while remembering this drive through Connemara.
So if you have a good intuition about people, are not shy to meet new friends ('A stranger is a friend you haven't met yet') ... give some of the hitchhikers on your way a ride, you will be blessed with insights, sights and experiences you will never find otherwise ... and make their day a bit easier =^^=
Food and other stuff
There are things most people will hardly notice or think about - but I tend to enjoy even seemingly small things with all my heart... and there were many seemingly small things that made my journey all the more fun and pleasant.
As I will happily admit, I can't shake off my German roots. One of these roots is that I'm addicted to bread - we shouldn't be called 'krauts', we should be called 'breads' ^^; When traveling through other countries, this is one of the very few things I really tend to miss - good bread, not just standard toast and some white bread you get nearly everywhere in the world. In Germany, we have countless kinds of bread ... if you can bake bread from something or something can be baked into bread - we will try it. During my journey through Ireland, a special kind of Irish brown bread was my constant companion - I had found a bread that was considered worthy of my German tastes! *_* While others went to pubs in villages for lunch, I often enough sat down somewhere in the middle of nowhere, enjoying the sight(s) around me and my lunch - brown bread with butter ^^;
I will be the first one to admit that I love good food ... and in Ireland I got a lot of it ... salmon, prawns, crabs ... fresh lamb ... tasty meals made from potatoes ... Ireland is an experience for the eyes with it's beautiful landscape (and sometimes really pretty girls ^_~), an experience for the nose with it's varied scents, an experience for the ears with the music and sometimes really chatty inhabitants ... and the taste buds have no reason to complain either.
Talking about music ... Ireland is the only land in the world with a musical instrument as it's symbol - the harp - well for a reason. Wherever I went, there was a good chance to be greeted by music ... not just music from a stereo in almost every shop and pub ... but also life music in the pubs, people singing or humming to themselves ... music and poetry run deep in Ireland. I always loved Celtic music ranging from Alan Stivell to The Dubliners ... but my love became even deeper while traveling through Ireland ... where music is still alive.
There were many other little things during my journey that made me smile ever-so-often ... how I was often enough mistaken for a local or at least for an Irish girl (I tend to adapt rather quickly and blend in quite well ^^;) ... the little quirks of Irish people in general and in particular (to give an example - if someone in Ireland greets you with tilting his head to the side and maybe even winking at you - don't think anything wrong, he's just greeting you the Irish way) ... the special style of Irish humor ... sheeps blocking the road for five minutes..ten minutes.. fifteen minutes.. ... the famous Irish rain and fog (I had many warm and sunny days during my stay, but the rainy days - hoooo boy.. I think I grew at least an inch in this rich Irish rain ^^;) ... chatting away for minutes or hours with shopkeepers, local people, guests in a pub, policemen on the street.. ... or enjoying complete silence and no people around me as far as I could see in a wide land for hours.
There are truly many little things that make traveling through Ireland even more worthwhile, if you take the time to enjoy them

|Irish people like having fun, and have many words to describe this national propensity. Even 'fun' has its own word - the crack2.|
Irish people are known to talk. A lot.
''The Irish people like to work hard and they like to play hard
Generally Irish society is very different now. In 1950s Ireland people were leaving to work, nowadays people are coming to Ireland to work. Huge Polish community here now, and many other Eastern European nationalities are here too.
Most Irish are Catholics and have a devotion to the Blessed Mother. Irish are very very smart, especially the ones who do not drink. They work very hard. You will not ever find a harder worker employee than an Irish who does not drink. In Ireland the woman run the household and the money, etc. Irish are prone to arguments and do have quick tempers. They are very funny. They do not seem to be all that materialistic compared to the other ethnicities.
there are a lot of alcoholics, and yelling fish wives and superstitious Irish, but I don't think it's really more so than in any other culture. There were signs here in the US that said things like "No Irish Need Apply" for jobs and housing because of the discrimination against the Irish in the US for so long based on these stereotypes. We're not all bog hoppers, paddys and mics either! My mom's family laugh and say "lace curtain" or "shanty" Irish. We get our houses and cars blest, and do some superstitious stuff. And, of course, we have tons of cops and firemen in our family.... lol I guess we are a little stereotypical in some ways! :)

|You would be surprised how many people judge and descrimenate Marshall Mathers *Eminem*. He has been protested against and hated on throughout the most important years of his life- the years that he will remember for the rest of his life. Marshall was born in Detroit Michigan, 1974 and lived there for most of his childhood. He moved once to Kansas but moved back soon after, into a black neighborhood where he did the rest of his growing. Marshall was the source of so many fights when he was in school, and he often got hurt- he was once hit so badly that he was knocked out and unconcous. He was put in a hospital for five days untill they thought he was well enough to leave.|
It wasn't till 1990 when Marshall started rap at a place called the Hip Hop Shop where he would preform for an audience doing rap battles. For those of you who think Eminem was a crack addict or drug dealer, you're so totally and completly wrong. On October 25 1995 Eminem and his girlfriend Kim Scott, gave birth to their new baby girl, Halie- Aside from the embarrasing parts of the story which I won't say, he wasn't able to support his family for some private reasons and was found un-employed and not doing well with rap... so he attempted a new album "Slim Shady EP" as his last hope to make it.
THE ALBUM WAS A HIT! His new CD sold more that 1.76 million copies in the first week. The now rich and famouse Eminem is now one of America's biggest rappers and he has finally gotten what he had worked so hard on. Good for you Slim! He loves his daughter so much and even made a song for her...*Halie's Song*- My favorite song,the best song in the world! And now I'm ending this essay with this- I hope you've learned a lot from this touching story and realized that Eminem might have written some songs that you don't agree with, but the way he sings is his fellings and his opinion...and I'm saying this in the nicest possible way- for those of you who have a problem with him, can just stick it up your asses. Thax and Byebye!
|My Favorite Music|
The wonderful group from Liverpool - John, Paul, George and Ringo - the Beatles, is in my opinion one of the best things that have happened in music in the twentieth century. They have written and performed great songs of many different generes in about a decade of their existance. After the group has broken up, its members, most noticably John Lennon, have continued writing and singing wonderful songs.
I can't really say which of the Beatles songs I like the best. I like the quiet songs (like "The Fool on the Hill", and "Julia"), the louder songs (like "Happiness is a Warm Gun"), the famous songs (like "When I'm 64"), and even many of the earlier songs (like "If I Fell"). Since I have on CD all the 15 Beatles albums, I can safely say that each and every one of them is worth having.
I really love to listen to classical music, from the Baroque and earier, to twentieth century orchestral music like Mahler's. I have a large collection of classical CDs, to which I usually listen at least an hour a day. My collection includes pieces by over 80 composers, and I really like many of them. However, my personal favorite composer is probably Ludwig van Beethoven (whose picture you can see on the right), who has written countless beautiful pieces. Some of the other composers I like are Dvorak, Tchaikowski, and Schubert, but as I said there are many other very good composers. Besides being beautiful, relaxing, and complex, the best thing about classical music is that I can listen to the same piece over and over, enjoying it more instead of getting tried of it.
My favourite movie
There are so many ways that we can judge what makes a movie "great": the acting, the direction, the script, the importance or significance of the movie, how many awards it's won . . .
My personal definition of a great movie is one that I love to watch over and over again without getting tired of. Therefore, this list of my favourite movies is not meant to represent anyone but myself. You can agree or disagree. Here are my favourites, along with a little bit about why I love them so much. Also note that this list is continually evolving. So here they are, in no particular order:
My favourite movie is Gone With the Wind (Unesennije vetrom)
This has everything: love, war, the passing of a gentile era, chivalry, passion, loyalty, betrayal, I could go on & on. My favorite since age 12. Never goes out of style, a classic–memorable lines, unforgettable characters, suspense, drama, gayety. The world needs Rhett and Scarlett in every generation!
Gone with the Wind is a sprawling mosaic of a picture, one of the best-loved and most successful in movie history, but also one of the most frustrating. Wonderfully epic in scope, the decline and fall of the antebellum South as seen through the eyes of feisty, independent and wilful heroine Scarlett O'Hara makes the first half of the picture an absolutely riveting spectacle. From the aristocratic old world of Tara to the horrors of Atlanta under siege, Gone with the Wind features any number of indelible scenes and images: the genteel girls taking an enforced siesta during the Twelve Oaks barbecue, a horrified Scarlett walking through the wounded, the flight from burning Atlanta, and Scarlett's moving pledge against a burnished sunset set to Max Steiner's glorious music score. But the second half shifts gear, the melodramatic quotient is upped yet further as tragedy piles upon tragedy, and despite its unwieldy length everything feels rushed. Add to that the central problem that the audience never really understands, why Scarlett could ever fall for weak-chinned Ashley in the first place, and the picture begins to unravel unsatisfactorily. Behind the scenes problems doubtless contributed, with directors coming and going, Vivien Leigh and Clark Gable apparently barely able to stand the sight of each other, and producer David O Selznick's endless rewrites and interference. Nonetheless, this 1939 box-office smash remains one of Hollywood's finest achievements, an irresistible spectacle chock-full of the finest stars in the filmic firmament striking sparks off one another. They really don't make 'em like this anymore.

Nuzno so4inenie na temu:" Children with rich parents are likely to be happier than children with poor parents."
The children of rich parents are healthier, better behaved, happier and better educated during their childhood and wealthier when they have grown up than are children from poor families.
I this the reason is, that rich people have more possibilities to educate their children, for example they buy interesting books (that are very expensive now), they have access to internet, also every rich family has a good computer and such kind of children goes to expensive school, there teach famous teachers. As we know one discourse (pogovorku), It is a big fortune who are you parents, teachers and wife. So, rich children automatically are lucky in two things – parents and teachers.
But other thing that not all rich children are happy with their parents, usually this kind of people spend all their time working or with friend, in social life, and they don’t have time for their children. And this kind of children feels lonely, they become egoistic and cruel. They don’t feel love and from this life side they are unhappy.

|My favorite food is chicken and lamb , i can tell who i really love it , because it is very tasty , and not so bad for healthy . It just wonderfull and brilliant !|
| I love tasting various ethnic foods in addition to traditional Japanese dishes. Especially I love eating good quality of sushi. I and my family used to go to a sushi restaurant called "Kaburaya" at Nagayama, Higashi-miyuki-cho, Toyohashi. It serves a great/fresh collection of Kaiseki-style sushi (a traditional sushi dish) in a comfortable and friendly facility. We are missing it very much since we moved to Otsu-shi, Shiga-ken in March, 1998. We may have to find the alternative. Now we are staying in Vancouver and find many ethnic food restaurants so we are happy to experience a variety of ethnic foods here. |

Meals play an important role in human life. Because it contained indispensable ingredients for life activity of our organism. Such as dioxides, fats, minerals and vitamins. They are contained in fish, vegetables, fruits, meat and other food stuffs . To be healthy man should eat 3 times a day. For lunch people usually eat buiscuits, toasts, sandwiches, cheese and drink coffee or tea with cream and sugar accordingly to your taste . For dinner we eat some soup, salad and fowl, fish or meat with garnish. Many people have to eat out of home in restaurants or in cafes . In such places you can order French fries, hamburgers, cheeseburgers, crisps, pizza and many others, but these meals are very harmful for our health. For the last 10 years in Moscow and in over big cities appeared a lot of restaurants and fast-food cafes. And with each year them becomes ever more. The old restaurants, such as Prague, were advanced, and at the same time has appeared a lot of new. From a net of restaurants of a fast feed(meal) by first has appeared McDonalds, and then Russian bistro Sbarro, Ёlki palki, Patio pizza and т.д Such trade marks as McDonalds , Sbarro and Patio a pizza are known all over the world, and in what you to the country would not be , whether it be Russia, Great Britain or USA quality of meal and е ё of assortment in these restaurants everywhere identical. And such restaurants as Russian bistro and елки палки are only in Russia, and were created on an image and similarity of McDonalds. each of these restaurants has firm dish. For example McDonalds associates with Big Mag Sbarro and Patio a pizza offer very tasty pizzas, in Russian bistro a wide range of pies made on the Russian recipe. But the cheapest and qualitative meal can be found in McDonalds. In Russia unfortunately price level in restaurants of a fast food, and in expensive restaurants very strongly differs and many people simply are not capable to pay the accounts. In Great Britain and in USA considerably more people can visit restaurants. Plus to all service in restaurants of Russia can not be compared with European yet. Also nowadays many restaurants give services in delivery of their most known dishes directly to you home. For this purpose it is necessary only to call and to name that want. In Europe this system exists for a long time, and in Russia it has appeared absolutely recently. In Moscow besides restaurants with Russian there are the restaurants with the Chinese, Japanese, Indian, Turkish and Spanish kitchen witch use the large popularity. But it is not enough of them and the prices same are accessible not to all .
As besides restaurants it is possible to find set of tents in streets of Moscow selling hot meal, but the quality of it very doubtful. I hope that in due course will occur ever more and more restaurants offering tasty, qualitative and useful meal.

There are people who like salty and spicy or sweet food. Also we all like roasted and grilled food , but such it is also very harmful . Nowadays a lot of people believe that only healthy food must be eaten. They don’t eat spaghetti, chops, sausages, grilled meat fish, fowl. They prefer to eat boiled and stewed vegetables such as cabbage, cauliflower, egg-plants, carrots. They certainly eat meat and fish but only boiled. Also there are people who don’t eat meat or fowl at all . They are vegetarians. But it isn’t good, because in fish and in meat there are some ingredients without which our health won’t be strong. In all big cities you can find Indian, Chinese Japanese and other oriental restaurants . Nowadays you can order you favourite meals by telephone, but despite it a lot of people like to cook themselves .Before cooking something you must buy some food stuffs. In big cities there are supermarkets and department stores where you can buy everything you need in daily life: from a tooth brush up to cars and furniture. Certainly you can buy there any you food stuffs. like Also there are food shops and markets. In markets it is better to buy greens, vegetables and fruits. Meat, fowl and fish it is safer to bay in shops because they must be kept refrigerator. As for me I like salty and spicy food . For example I’ll never refuse to eat grilled meat or stuffed egg-plants. I like caviar, shrimps, pate, bacon, cold pork.
Tad Dorgan, a sports cartoonist, gave the frankfurter its nickname in 1906. Munching on a frank at a baseball game, he concluded that it resembled a dachshund’s body and put that whimsy into a drawing, which he captioned “Hot dog”.
Sausages go all the way back to ancient Babylon, but the hot dog was brought to the U.S.A. shortly before the Civil War by a real Frankfurter – Charles Feltman, a native of Frankfurt, Germany, who opened a stand in New York and sold grilled sausages on warmed rolls – first for a dime apiece, later, a nickel.
The frank appealed to busy Americans, who – as an early 19th century comment put it – tend to live by the maxim of “gobble, gulp and go”. Nowadays Americans consume more than 12 billion frankfurters a year.
Modern hamburgers on a bun were first served at the St. Louis Fair in 1904, but Americans really began eating them in quantity in the 1920s, when the White Castle snack bar chain featured a small, square patty at a very low price. Chopped beef, tasty and easily prepared, quickly caught on as family fare, and today hamburger stands, drive-ins, and burger chains offer Americans their favorite hot sandwich at every turn.
The history of the hamburger dates back to medieval Europe. A Tartar dish of shredded raw beef seasoned with salt and onion juice was brought from Russia to Germany by early German sailors. The lightly broiled German chopped-beef cake, with pickles and pumpernickel on the side, was introduced to America in the early 1800s by German immigrants in the Midwest.
It was early Dutch settlers and the Pennsylvania Germans who introduced the yeasty, deep-fried doughnut to America. To the Dutch it was a festive food, eaten for breakfast on Shrove Sunday.
Legend has it that doughnut got its hole in 1847 when Hanson Gregory, a lad later to become a sea captain, complained to his mother that her fried cakes were raw in the center and poked hole4s in the next batch before they were cooked.
During World War I, when the Salvation Army served them to the troops, doughnuts really took off as popular fare. Since then, coffee and doughnuts become a national institution. Stores sell them plain, sugared, frosted, honey-dipped, or jam-filled.
At its best, with a savory filling and crisp, light-brown crust, apple pie has long been favorite on American tables.
Apples and apple seems were among the precious supplies the early colonists brought to the New World. The first large apple orchards were planted near Boston by William Blaxton in the 1600s. When he moved to Rhode Island in 1635, he developed the tart Rhode Island Greening, still considered one of America’s finest apple pies.
As the fruit became abundant, many settlers ate apple pie at every meal. Garnished with a chunk of cheese, it was a favorite colonial breakfast dish. By the 18th century apple pie became so popular that Yale College in New Haven served it every night at supper for more than 100 years.
America’s love affair with apple pie has remained constant. Today’s housewives, pressed for time, can shortcut the tradition by buying the pastry ready-made at bakeries and supermarkets. Many variation on the good old original are available, but the classical apple pie, irresistible when topped with a slice of rat-trap cheese or slathered with vanilla ice cream, is still America’s favorite.
George Crumb, an American Indian who was the chef at Moon’s Lake House in Saratoga Springs, New York, in the mid-19th century, was irked when a
finicky dinner guest kept sending back his French fried potatoes, complaining they were too thick. In exasperation, Crumb shaved the potatoes into tissue-thin slice and deep-fried them in oil. He had a dishful of crisp “Saratoga chips” presented to the guest, who was delighted with the new treat.
Potato chips became the specialty of Moon’s Lake House and, later, America’s crunchiest between-meal snack.
America’s best known soft drink was first concocted by an Atlanta pharmacist in 1886. The syrup was cooked up by John S. Pemberton from extracts of coca leaves and the kola nut. He then organized the Pemberton Chemical Company, and Coca-Cola syrup mixed with plain water was sold in a local drug-store for 5 cents a glass.
Sales were slow until in 1887 a prosperous Atlanta druggist, Asa G. Candler, bought the Coca-Cola formula – then as now a carefully guarded secret – and added carbonate water to the syrup instead of plain water.
Advertisement stressing the words “delicious” and “refreshing” and carry coupons for free Coca-Cola added to the increase in consumption. A system of independent local bottling companies was developed, and the flared bottle, familiar worldwide and said to resemble the hobble skirt, was designed in 1916.
In 1919 the company was sold out for $25 million to a group headed by Ernest Woodruff. Under his son, Robert W. Woodruff, Coca-Cola rapidly expanded its market. By the mid-1970s more than 150 million Cokes a day were sold in country all over the world.
Today Coca-Cola has to compete with many other soft drinks, but it is still one of the symbols of the United States.

Apskaties, var būt kaut kas palīdzēs.
|Like everyone, shopping is my HOBBY. But not at all, I just like to go shopping when I have A special FEELING. Sometime I feel happy or feel sad, I usually go shopping to REMOVE my sadness or feel happier. Besides, sometimeS I think everything is so boring and I go shopping. Specially, I can take my interested things. I'm like everyone, specially kids, I like everything which is new, beautiful, and colorful. That is THE main reason to go shopping. Moreover, shopping is the best way for me to relax after school. AnD it is also THE best way to kill time when I'm really free and have nothing to do. Although I love shopping, I can't spend TOO much money ON it. So I just may take a look AT everything around me. That's a good way because I can save time, save money and enjoy colorful THINGS. In my opinion, shopping helps me to lose weight. It makes me do exercise and IT feels comfortable. In addition, every time I go shopping, I can stay WITH my friends or my family to decide which one should be bought FOR. I feel so happy and funny. With all THESE advantages, there IS nothing for me to hate shopping.|
My family has a shopping day. It is Saturday. We get up early this day. Early to rise and early to bed makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise. My father and I usually go to Ramstor because it is near to our house. In the morning we ask our mother what we need. We take bags and go to the shop. First of all we go to the butcher’s store. We buy sausage, meat, fish, and eggs there. In the baker’s store we buy sweets, cakes, rolls and buns. In the greengrocer’s store we buy fresh vegetables and fruit such as carrots, tomatoes, potatoes, onions, cucumbers, apples, lemons. An apple a day keeps the doctor away.
Last week we had our mother’s birthday. We prepared everything for this holiday: we bought food and a present for her. We wanted to make her happy. She is a woman of taste, so we bought a perfume. She was very pleased and thanked for our shopping.
