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. In this comment I am going to talk about if I remember what the situation used to be a few years ago with smokers and what happened when I into a bar or a pub. The situation was insupportable.

    This situation changed when a law didn`t allowed to smoke in the bars or pubs, near hospitals, near schools. They only allowed you to smoke in the terraces. There were a lot of people who were in counter this law, but this was necessary.

    When I entered in a bar you can’t breath well and it was impossible to be in a bar comfortable. Also the clothes smelled very very bad when you left the bar and was awful. The passives smokers were injured more than now.

    All in all, I think this law was necessary, because it was very awful the situation before. Many people will agree with me that was insupportable.

  2. A few years ago when I was going to a bar and there were smokers inside it was troublesome for the people that we don't smoke. The clothes were smelling smoke and we are breathing the whole of the smokers though you didn't want or not be smoking. People that weren't smokers we were turning into passive smokers and it was harming the health, overcoat for the children and people falls ill.

    Now, thanks to the new law antismoking is not allowed to smoke in closed places. Now we can be more comfortable in the public places without having to breathe the whole of the smokers. Thanks to this law some persons have stopped smoking.

  3. I remember that when I was younger people could some in bars and in other public places. Thanks to the governement, it was prohibited some yearrs ago. I don´t smoke and I have the right of not smelling the smoke of other people!! So, I think that smokers and non-smokers are better now with the new anti-smoking laws.
    Many people are now using the electronic cigarette. I don´t know if it´s bad for the health, but at least it doesn't smell. Scientists should study quickly if it is harmful or not before people use it.

  4. The government was right to ban smoking in public places because people do not like to breathe that aire.Hace few years, cigarette smoke was everywhere. People could freely smoke everywhere, and smoked for hours in public places. But in recent years, various government health agencies and organizations have been successfully carried out various actions to prevent people continue breathing harmful secondhand smoke.

  6. When I walked into a bar a large percentage of people were smoking and it was impossible not to absorb cigarette smoke, also my mother asked me where I had been suspecting that I smoked.
    Besides the snuff is bad for the smoker, is also to let it breathe. I am satisfied that in public places has been banned smoking as there are people of all ages.
    I think what we should ban the sale of snuff.

  7. I think the smoke is very bad because it will rotting teeth and lungs and decreases life expectancy. This nicely put fine smokers who smoke in places they shouldn't because nonsmokers exposed to smoke and smoking both people.

  11. In January, people want to to make their New Year's resolutions and stop smoking is one of the most frequent promises made.

    In England not many people smoke because their laws ban it, but in Spain a lot of people continue smoking,although some years ago there used to be more people who smoked than now.

    We think that smoking is a habit, without knowing how hard it is to give it up.

    Currently, with the law that we have, which doesn't allow smokers to smoke inside bars and forces them to go outside to smoke, there are fewer people who smoke. Perhaps one reason could be for the cold weather and for the economic situation. For this reason, there are fewer passive smokers than before.

  14. Not long ago smokers could smoke in bars. Before that, even students had the possibility to smoke at school, like their teachers. However, this won’t happen again, because it is prohibited. Moreover now, you need to be at a certain distance of hospitals or schools to smoke. This new ban in Wales that says that electronic cigarettes will be banned in bars is another example of this change in the world of smokers. But, why does it happen?

    On the one hand, I personally agree with the new law in Spain that banned smoking in bars, because I was very annoyed when I was in a bar and when I went out all my clothes had this disgusting smell of tobacco. It’s true that I can’t stand the smell of tobacco, but I think that if you want to smoke there are more places to go.

    On the other hand, I think that electronic cigarettes aren’t as bad as normal cigarettes, so I don’t mind if smokers want to use them. I don’t know if they are better than the normal ones, but it’s true that they don’t smell like the others. I only know that they use steam instead of tar, tobacco..., so they should be better.

    All in all, I think that now people are more conscious about the issues of smoking than before. Nevertheless, I would never understand why people continue smoking, if they know what they contain, because I will never smoke something that contains the same materials as a road. It’s crazy!

  15. I remember, some years ago, people could smoke in bars and public places but nowadays this is impossible. Now, if you go to a bar or restaurant, for example, you don’t see people smoking, and this is because the government imposed a law that smokers can’t smoke in public spaces.

    There are many people who agree with this law because it was annoying that you go to a restaurant to enjoy with your family or friends and you had to cope the smoke snuff. I hate this and I hate people who smoke next to you without asking you if you care they smoke in front of you. Actually, I hate the tobacco because you pay to get it and it kills you.

    In the latest years electronic cigarettes that don't emit smoke have appeared, they emit vapor with different smells. Many people think that it can’t be used in public spaces, but I think that they don’t cause the same damage as normal cigarettes. There are many restaurants that has banned the use of this kind of cigarettes. But there are many different opinions about about this issue.

    All in all, the law of ban smoke in public spaces is the best thing that the government has been done. The people enjoy in bars, restaurants, museums… without anybody smoking next to them. It is more complicated when we deal with electronic cigarettes.

  16. A five years ago when you entered in the bars you could see persons who were smoking inside them. It was quite annoying to people who didn't smoke. When you were sitting in a bar the tobacco smell permeated in the clothes and your clothes smelled stench. For this reason, people that didn't smoke were turned into passive smokers unconsciously. Now, thanks at the law antismoking is forbidden smoke in bars and in public places. I don't smoke, but I don't understand why people continue smoking because they know that smoking is bad for the health and inside them there are many damaging components like tar. In my opinion the electronic cigarretes is one way to quit smoking, I don't know if it's damaging or no but it's better than smoking cigarretes. Although the best solution is: don't smoking because it's bad for you and because the packets cost much money.

  18. Yes, I remember the situation a few years ago. I was very little, but my aunt, who is older than me, told me that people smoked everywhere, even at the school and in the hospital. Everybody smoked, no matter where. Something that was annoying for the rest of people, who didn't smoke. But now, the situation has changed. You go to a public center and nobody smoke is more, there is a poster, where it says, no smoking. Or you go a coffee and all the smokers are at the street. I think that the prohibition of smoke in public centers was a good decision.

    I don’t smoke, and I feel proud of it. In class of Biology we have done an experiment, which was called “La botella fumadora”. We put a bottle full of water with cotton under a teat. On the teat we put a cigarette afire, squeezing the bottle the cigarette was consumed. It smelled really bad, the clothes too. Finally, the cotton was black, and the water had ashes. The cotton was similar than the lungs. For this, if you smoke your lungs will be blacks.

    The people shouldn't smoke, it is very dangerous for the health, but know it they still smoking. The best solution is don’t smoke neither tobacco nor electronics cigarettes.

    We filled water bottle halfway cotton we introduce the nozzle without wetting we put the nipple also stuffed with cotton at the nozzle and make a cut to the nipple and introduce cigar.will we light the cigar and make a hole in the bottle and press for the cigar is spent. the end result is that the cotton is yellow and black as would the lungs after smoking a cigar.

  22. Smoking has been a problem for many years, although currently, it is more seen as responsible of many health problems throughout the world. The reason why I'm writing today is to concern people about this issue. Do you think smoking should be made illegal?

    First of all, the most ordinary problem that we face in our day-to-day life is lung cancer. In the last years, there have been a heavy rise of death due to cancer, So, if you stop smoking, it is likely you live much longer.

    Secondly, what about passive smokers? Why have they to swallow the hume of other person? Although it is true that now it isn't allowed to smoke in public spaces, and smokers have their own areas as well.

    I strongly feel that nobody can made anyone to stop smoking. Nonetheless, we all should be concern about smoking's risk. On the contrary, I believe the sell of cigarettes has to be controlled as many youngsters are sold cigarettes without being asked their DNI.
