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.

Years pass....sad anniversaries!

Chernobyl, Hillsborough...sad anniversaries. Years pass for people and even for Big Ben, a British emblem. Here are some interesting articles to read about:


Episode 160427 / 27 Apr 2016   >>>  Expressions presented: catastrophically, fall silent, scaffolding, glimpse & delivery.

By the way, how high do you think Big Ben is? Pay attention to the question and how you ask your measures in English. Can you measure LOVE? Listen to this song and tell me.



And here's the version sung by the Bee Gees >>>

  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).

  4. The Chernobyl accident1 was a previous nuclear accident at the Vladimir Ilyich Lenin nuclear power plant on Saturday, April 26, 1986. Considered, together with the Fukushima I nuclear accident in Japan in 2011, as the tomb more on the International Nuclear Accident Scale , one of the greatest environmental disasters in history. Still in places of Chernobyl there is still a lot of radiation. You can visit Chernobyl but very safely because the radiation can be bad for our body. I have seen videos about Chernobyl and still in the caretakers of the children there are still dolls, clothes ... and in the hospital of Chernobyl they still remain medically, reports ... When I finish my studies I would like to visit Chernobyl because it seems an interesting place.

  7. Hillsborough disaster took place at the Hillsborough Stadium in Sheffield, England, during the semi-final of football between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest of the England Cup on Saturday, 15th April, 1989.
    Too many fans went to see the match and there were excess capacity and poor state of the stadium besides the stadium did not meet the necessary security requirements.
    During the match an avalanche of people came up and 96 people died crushed against the fences. Everyone was affected by the accident, specially Steven Gerrard, the captain of Liverpool during 2004 and 2015, whose cousin of 10 years old died in the accident

    The Chernobyl accident took place at the Vladimir Ilich Lenin nuclear power plant in northern Ukraine on 26th April 1986.This accident is considered the most serious on the International Nuclear Accident Scale.
    This accident previously was a experiment, but it ended in disaster, 31 people died. 2 workers died as a result of the explosion and the remaining 29 died in the next 3 months.
    However, these weren´t the only consequences. 116,000 people had to be evacuated urgently. This accident affected 13 european countries.

  8. The Chernobyl accident was a nuclear accident that occurred on April 26, 1986 at the Vladimir Ilich Lenin nuclear power plant, located in northern Ukraine. It is considered the worst nuclear accident in history, and together with the Fukushima I nuclear accident in Japan in 2011, as the most serious on the International Nuclear Accident Scale. It is also usually included among the greatest environmental disasters in history. The causes and development of the accident are controversial. a series of imbalances occurred in reactor 4 of this nuclear power plant. These imbalances led to uncontrolled overheating of the nuclear reactor core and one or two successive explosions, followed by a widespread fire. The explosions blew the lid off the 1,200-ton reactor and ejected large amounts of radioactive material into the atmosphere, forming a radioactive cloud that spread across Europe and North America.

    fter the accident, a massive decontamination, containment and mitigation process began, which was carried out by approximately 600,000 people called liquidators in the areas surrounding the accident site. An area of ​​30 km radius around the nuclear power station known as the alienation zone, which is still in force, was isolated. Only a small part of the liquidators were exposed to high levels of radioactivity.

    In November 2016, thirty years after the tragedy, a new sarcophagus was inaugurated

  10. Chernobyl was, a year or so ago, a big tourist destination from people across the globe, for what i know, due to the exploding popularity of a Netlix show called as the place, which made a dramatization of the narrated events in the city before and after the incident. After this, a lot of people came to visit this place and either make photos of themselves in it or to leave a mark in it´s place, but to be honest i thnk it was Chernobyl who leaved a mark in them, and I´m not talking about a metaphoric one.

    As most things related to clebrities and people who thinks themselves as one of them, they barely respect the place and/or what it represents for the rest of the persons, using it as a excuse to take photos promoting themselves or a company who pays them for advertising their products, most of the times pretending to care about it with the usual text trying to look deep and meaningfull, that at this point rise more hate than empathy, which by my point of view, it´s well deserved for being normies.

    I consider it ironic, how a disaster of such magnitude caused by an accident and negligence, can, and I hope it will, cause disastrous effects on the health of the people who went to it due to their ignorance and/or negligence.
