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. The Chernobyl disaster also known as the Chernobyl accident or Chernobyl. This was a catastrophic nuclear accident that occurred on 26 April 1986 at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant in the city of Pripyat, which is located in the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic of the Soviet Union (USSR). An explosion and fire was released in large quantities of radioactive particles into the atmosphere, which spread over western USSR and Europe.

    The Chernobyl disaster was the worst nuclear power plant accident in history. The damages were as big as Kukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster in Japan in 2011. For repair this terrible disaster, it was need over 500000 workers and cost 18 billion rubles. During the accident, 31 people died and it produced long-term effects such as cancers.

    In history, many nuclear accidents have been occurred such as Fukushima (2011), Tokaimura (1999) or Windscale (1957). There are many reasons like natural disasters (Fukushima) or technical’s mistakes.

    These types of accidents have got two types consequences: immediately, it produces many deaths and destruction and long-effects, it produces many diseases such as cancer and the area is contaminated so anything can’t be grown.

    All in all, I think governments should be more aware of this problem, because it produces more damages than we think. I hope one day there wouldn’t be any nuclear power plants and we could obtain energy safer and cleaner.

  3. I am going to write about Hillborough disaster. The semi-final between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest took place on Saturday, 15th April, 1989. More than 53,000 fans went to see the match. When the match started, an avalanche of people came up. They hit the fences,which were knocked down by the pressure of the people pushing and the people began to fall down and crashed into others. 96 people died, all of them were fans of Liverpool.
    The investigation said that the fact happened since there were too many people and the stadium was in bad conditions.

    Talking about disasters, Chernobyl was another one. It was a nuclear accident that happened on 26th April 1986. It took place at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant in the city of Pripyat, nowadays Ukraine. There was an explosion when workers were doing experiments. 31 people died and 116,000 were evacuated. There was radiation, at less in 13 countries of central and eastern Europe. This produced many deaths and long-term illnesses like cancers.

    Regarding the Big Ben, it is a British emblem actually. It was built by Charles Barry and Augustus Pugin in 1858. It measures 96 metres and it is located in Westminster Palace (The Parliament).
