BEING A TEACHER....

BEING A TEACHER IS A DIFFICULT TASK NOWADAYS, SO I DECIDED TO FOLLOW THIS PIECE OF ADVICE BY BRUCE LEE:

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.

  1. I think that is a good idea that Putin bans smoking in public because it can affect the people that they don't smoke. Smoking is bad for health because it harms the lungs and that shortens life. In Spain sometimes there are people smoking in front of children in parks, in restaurants, on buses, etc. In Spain the politicians banned smoking in public spaces
    but there are persons that don't respect it. And the traffic banned smoking during your driving the car.
    People shouldn't smoke .

  2. Nowadays while adults want to give up smoking, more and more young people start doing it. Many of them do it because their parents or grandparents have been smokers , and they see it as something normal or something that it isn’t bad for health, but most of them do it because they are pressured by their friends or because they want to be "fashion" .

    I read this article and think that it's a good law. This law already exists in countries like Spain, and through it, many people have realized how bad smoking is. Besides being bad for people's health, buying tobacco is also a big waste of money, because when you are addicted, you need it, and it doesn’t matter how much money you spend. It’s needed a lot of will to stop smoaking, and it isn’t easy.

    Moreover, I think that banning smoking in public places will improve the life’s quality of everyone, since not only do the smoker smoke, but also those who are around him and breathe the smoke. In addition, children won’t see it as normal, just as an activity which is banned by law.

    To sum up, I think that if you want to reduce the number of smokers in a country, it’s important that the government explain in schools the effects of the tobacco when the years pass and to give more information to educate well to the population on their childhood.

  4. In the 60's a lot of people used to smoke. A lot of young people used to smoke because they thought that it was cool but, they didn't know the consequences of smoking. They didn't have talks about it, and they didn't know the components of a cigar or a cigarette.

    However, nowadays it’s not the same because now, we have a lot of talks about it, even, if we don’t smoke. We also know their components and the diseases that you can have, if you are a heavy smoker. In spite of this, many young people continue doing this, and the problem is that they can’t stop.

    The only “good thing” that they have is that if you are a very nervous person, it can relax you, but you are going to like more and more, and this is the big problem. Smokers think that there are others that drink alcohol, or take drugs... and they continue doing that, but this isn’t an excuse. However, there are some doctors that prescribe marijuana because it’s healthier than tobacco and it can relax you.

    In conclusion, in my opinion the law banning tobacco in public places is really strict, but I'm in favour of it. However, people have rights, and this can be really unfair for smokers.

    GLOSARY: tobacco, marijuana, ban, disease, right.

  5. Many ages before, people were used to smoke a lot in everyplace at anytime. They found it normal and cool smoking, but the problem was that they didn't know the consequences of having cigarattes. They didn't know what does cigarattes have.

    Nowadays, we know a bit more about cigarettes. They are compound of cigaratte: nicotine: tar, ammonia, butane, methane, cadmium and carbon monoxide. And we know that can create lung cancer. But the most important problem it that it can also affect people around you. All things aren't bad, because it can help nervous people.

    In conclusion, in my opinion the law of banning tobacco in publec places should start, smoking affects many people that doesn't have the fault of became ill because of smokers.

  6. Many years ago, people could smoke everywhere, but today governments are more concerned about health problems and, little by little, they are forbiding to smoke in public places. I think that it is a good way for smokers to smoke less, and a very good thing for the health of the people who don't smoke. I also think that smoking and selling cigarrettes should be forbidden at all because it´s a drug and a lot of people die because of it.

  8. I think smoking in public is dangerous for the person who walk near a smoker, because it might can be prejudicial for their health, for example they can inhale the smoke of the cigarette of one smoker. The people that don’t want smoke, but they inhale the smoke is called “passive smokers”

    Smoking in public is dangerous overcoat for the children, because a lot of people smoke in the parks and there, there are a lot of children playing with her friends and they can inhale the smoke too.

    I agree with the laws of Putin, because this way people will be surer and they won’t be passive smokers.
