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.

And now changing topics, ...

Legendary creatures: the Unicorn

What is Cryptozoology? It is the study of legendary creatures (interesting listening exercise about the topic). Do you know any other legendary creatures? In the listening exercise below you will learn all about this and what is the connection with the current political situation in the United Kingdom.

Listening exercise for you to do: Why are unicorns back in fashion?  (6 Minute English, BBC Learning English).

And related to this issue, here are two other aspects to revise:

  1. What is cryptozoology?
    According to the video, cryptozoology is the study of creatures that some believe exists today, but for which there is no definitive proof, such as "big foot", "the monster of Loch Ness" or "the Yeti".

    Do you know any other legendary creature?
    Not many, but I know that "the nine-tailed fox" is a mythological fox from China

    Why are the unicorns back in fashion?
    Natalie Lawrence is a natural historian who said that people used to drink from unicorn horn cups to prevent poisoning, and believe that the idea that it is magical and has magical powers is still valid.

  2. This last week in our high school, is celebrated the science week, why?, because the 8th of March is the international day of the scientific woman. My class has been participating in different sections, my group was helping in the section of geography and history, and the other group was helping in the section of physics and chemistry. When childrens from nearby primary schools came to our sectione, we had to explain the solar system and play with them, they also made their own solar system as a souvenir of that day!

    In my opinion this week is really wonderfull because we celebrate the day of the scientific woman and we share it with the children and their teachers, in addition to having fun we offer them a little more wisdom and fun.

His most important works consisted in contributing, along with Roger Penrose, theorems regarding spatiotemporal singularities within the framework of general relativity and the theoretical prediction that black holes would emit radiation, 5 what is known today as radiation. Hawking (or sometimes Bekenstein-Hawking radiation). One of the main characteristics of his personality was his contribution to the scientific debate, sometimes betting publicly with other scientists, the best known case is his participation in the discussion about the conservation of information in black holes.
