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.

  3. I think that living underwater is very difficult because you are alone and away from the civilization. In my opinion Jacques Cousteau is a very brave man, he lived fifty years ago thirty days underwater and he sets the world record in doing this. One of his descendants, called Grandson Fabien Cousteau was planning to create a new record by spending thirty-one days underwater and overcome the record of thirty days underwater. The day 3th of July, 2014 Jacques Cousteau beats the record of his grandfather. In the expedition he investigated the ocean and tries that the people care the ocean more and better.

  5. There are a lot of forms of living, but one year ago someone said me that some Japanese engineers wanted to do houses underwater because, they wouldn't have enough space to build houses. I couldn't believe it, but it was true. I saw it in the news, in spite of this I haven't seen anyone living underwater, except Jacques Cousteau.

    On the one hand, I think that living uderwater could be really difficult, because your house can be broken and you could drown. Another important fact is that it would cost a lot of money and not all people could live there. Moreover, you won't breathe fresh air in these types of houses.

    On the other hand, it could be an important fact to think about because our planet could be polluted and we must have a place to escape. It could also be really amazing to live underwater for more than a week.

    All in all, it's only an experiment, so we can learn how it works and how it will finish, it can finish bad. However, I think that they are lucky to do this experiment, but they have to pay attention to sharks.

  6. In my opinion it's very difficult to spend a month living underwater. I think they were first scared.
    Jacques Costeau an oceanographer, lived fifty years ago thirty days underwater, which was a world record. One descendant of him called Grandson Fabien Cousteau was planning to spend thirty-one days living eighteen metres underwater.

    And the day 3rd of July, 2014 at 03:4, his descendant Fabien Costeau and his team broke the record, creating a new record for the number of days spent living underwater. The same record that was formally set by Fabien Costeau's grandfather the famous ocean explorer. The scientists had been living there in a laboratory on the Florida coast from 1st June, to study problems in a coral reef.

  8. I think that live underwater is very difficult for humans because our body is not prepared to handle the pressure that would be under water and there are other difficulties as there is no air to breathe and plants need to carry. Moreover we need the direct sunlight and foods that have to occur in nature. The houses would be like submarines and I do not think anyone can stand to live always under water too long.

    My parents have told me that Cousteau's grandfather was very good documentary on the sea and the effects of pollution. Now Cousteau's grandson has lived underwater to study the effects of pollution and that's fine because it's to help the conservation of the environment but life under water is not possible.

  9. I would like my room to be underwater with windows to see the seabed. I think it's very relaxing because you stay a while looking and forget everything. Our body is not ready for the water but say nothing of having a well-sealed room, so do not pass anything. It also helps you to study marine animals, you can even see some never wear.

  10. I think it´s a fantastic idea to live underwater! It can't be easy to be underwater for a month, but if it´s possible, I would like to spend some days there.
    There can be some problems there: lack of light and oxigyn, little space to live, no internet, no places to have fun, etc.. but It could be one different and unforgettable experinece because you could see fish around you, the waves, marine currents, etc..
    In conclusion, although I could have some problems or disadvantages, I would like to try for a few days.. It could be a new adventure.
