Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.

  3. NHS is a web page which gives you information about different issues related with health and advise you about different ways to have a healthier living. NHS stands for National Health Service.

  5. We are living in a time where there are corruption, economic crisis, health problems and economical cutbacks. Now our society is not the same than three, four or ten years ago.

    A very important issue of our society is crime. If crime rate dereases, we'll live in a better society. A lot of people still, lie, cheating, are corrupt and it can change. I wish people would be good in our society.

    I found a article on internet which is about crima in England:

    I´ve found an article about employment:

    Kyewords: workers, challenge, economy, company, trust.

    This article reflects one of the hundreds of cases in the world about the struggle of employment. This can use as motivation to many people fot ahead and don´t give up because there are many companies with ``open door´´.

    In conclusion, if employment increases, the homeless, poverty and even crime would be decrease.

    Phil Collins, in this song, speaks about homelessness. The protagonist of the song is a homeless girl. For her, a room, a bed and some food would be the paradise, however these things for us are nothing.

    NHS stands for National Health Service. It is a public health organism in UK and this is its web page.

  8. The text is about crisis in the world. Europe is very affected and America too. Particulary it is about Texas, where it affecte higheste rate of people.

    The worl is going through this problem because of politics. They haven't been able to administrate.

    I would say that everybody must be conscious of this problem and we have to help poor people more often.

  9. It is widely known that we are living in an economic crisis, but there are actually more people who are having big problems with their day by day live than we can imagine. In my point of view it seems contradictious that in time a huge technological growth, the percentage of world’s population who suffer from poverty is the biggest for decades, even in developed countries. People are in a really bad situation, their problem isn’t that they haven’t got enough money to go on holiday but that it is rather more serious. Those people wouldn’t have enough to eat if there weren’t the food banks. As I see it, organizations like these are making a wonderful job helping people. I think all of us should take action and help as far as it is possible for each one.

  12. Here is an article about abortion in Spain:

    Nowadays, abortion is a topic that everyone talks about. Abortion is the ending of pregnancy by the removal or expulsion of a fetus or embryo from the uterus before viability. Not everybody agree with this activity, and in fact, there are a lot of debates about if it is morrally right to do it.

    On the one hand, there's people who think that it is right, because you're not killing a human, it's just an embryo, a group of cells, so women have the right to decide if they want to be mothers or not. For example, when there's a violation and the woman becomes pregnant.

    On the other hand, people who think that abortion isn't right usually are very religious. They think that women are killing their babies, and killing people is illegal. Not only do they think that, but they also think it's morrally incorrect. In Spain, now abortion is not allowed, and people have done a lot of protests.

    Taking all this into account, from my point of view, I believe that abortion should be allowed, since women who want to do it, will do it illegaly, so there's more probability of death, because illegal clinics have no control.
