A life without music

Can you imagine live without the music? In my opinion it's impossible because we're listening to the music all the time, in the shoping centers, on the TV, in the car, etc. In adition, sometimes we don't pay attention that we're listening to music, that's why the music is a normal thing in our lives.

Today, there are a lot of different types of music: rock, pop, classical music, techno, punk, dance, etc. For this reason, every person can choose the type of music that he or she wants, the best group of the moment or the group that he/she likes... but in general, I think that we are searching all the time for that song in which we feel identify or taht other song that we like listen to in a certain moment or in a certein state of spirit.In conclusion, I think that the music it's an important thing in the human lives and I belive that in certain mode it's a way of escape of the reality.If you want listen to some music you can look for it in www.los40.com

Let's make the best out of our lives...
Oh, yeah, let's make the best out of our lives...

Brothers in arms

Brothers in arms is a computer game which explain the history of the sargent Matt Baker. In the game we can find some scenes, situations or include battles where the sargent Matt Baker lived in the second world war.
The objective of the game is to liderate a group of soldiers and try to complete some diferent misions. In adition you have to help your soldiers in the battle and try to stay them alive. Before every mision, you can speak to your soldiers and ask them for his preocupations, his feelings after the battle...
Since the March of 2005 when the game appeared in the shops, Brothers in arms is considerated the best game of the World War II, with his reslistic efects and graphics or his mode of combat but in conclusion, the top note of his succes is his human details like the conversation with your soldiers.
In my opinion the game is very interesting and if you like this type of games you have to play it as soon as you can buy it.

During the last few months, we have been seeing lots of advertisements on TV that have to do with Christmas. The most known advertisements, at present, are related, as we are accustomed, with toys and games for children. In addition, we also have perfumes and CD’s advertisements which have an important role in world’s television. Doubtlessly, the reason of this type of advertisements is entirely commercial so as to sell, through this period, lots of products, taking advantage of people’s predisposition to buy more than any time of the year.
On the other hand, other types of advertisements we can find are about typical things and food of Christmas like Christmas trees or nougats.
From my point of view, one of the most attractive advertisements on TV related with Christmas, are about different companies of Cava. For instance, we can mention Freixenet Company, who spends an important sum of money in his Christmas ad. Freixenet is used to advertise their products with famous people. Personally, I do believe the current advertisements are worst than before. I think every year they lost more attraction and amusement. For this reason, I only hope this year it would be more amusing than the last with the actress Demi Moore and Gabino Diego. If we want to know the answer, we will have to wait until 29 November. About it, I just know that protagonists are the actress Gwyneth Paltrow and the dancer Angel Corella. We will see!

Below, I append one Freixenet's advert where you can opine about it. When we will have seen Freixenet 2006's ad we can discuss wich one is better. So, we will see in a few days! See you later!

One of the my favourite sport is Formula 1, although many people consider that is not a sport because the drivers don't move and stay all the race sit in the car, but is one of the harder sport.
The racing driver can lose three or four kilogrammes in one race. This is the reason that the more important in one race, except the concentration, is drink a lot of water. They have a small water tank behind them and through a little hose they can drink.
one other important aspect that they need to keep are the muscles in their neck, because is the part of the body that is more affect, because when they drive a car in one bend near 270 km/h the G strength are very hard, for example if the normal people do it, is very probable that you break one's neck.
In my opinion it is one of the more spectacular sport, because the racing drivers can arrive with their cars near 340 km/h, and it is very dangerous because a very little absent-mindedness can be mortal.

The first snowfall has arrived in the high Pyrenees’ mountains. With this snowfall stars the ski season 2006-2007. I’ve decided speak about this topic because ski is my favorite sport and in la Pobla there are a lot of people who likes skiing. Nowadays ski is a very popular sport and thousand of people practice it in the Pyrenees.
Ski, in the beginning was a means of transport. Ski like sport started in the Northern countries at the end of 19th century. With the phenomenon of immigration, today ski is one sport around the world. In Spain this hobby arrived more or less in 1910. In 1941 was funded la Federación Española de Esquí.
In the last years, skis have developed a lot and the carving skis have removed the traditional skis. This type of skis permit accelerates the learning and goes faster than traditional skis.
Good ski season to all skiers!

Our energetic future

Nowadays society wouldn’t work if there weren’t energies. First people think about electricity but the most important one is the oil, or fuel. In fact more than the eighty percent of the energy we use comes from it. More or less we spend twelve litters of oil each day. This is only what a person spends of fuel energy, there is another part of removable energies as solar or hydraulic.

Moreover oil is used to do a lot of things. Look around, your CDs and DVDs are made from oil, your PC if mostly build of plastic. In general, more than the seventy percent of the objects in your house comes from fuel, what is more only the ten percent of the things you use normally are not made of any type of oil.

But, when will the oil disappear? Experts say that it will never disappear completely, because it will arrive a day when it will be too difficult to extract it and then we will use other combustibles.

So it’s very important the research in this way. A lot of scientists are working to find the best alternative to this kind of live. When will we use an hydrogen or electric car?

An eye for detail 2

If you notice that this topic remembers to you something it’s true, is the topic of the text in page 34 and 35 in our English book but this is the second part.
I think that the text was very interesting and it’s really good to look for mistakes on the films so I decided to create the second part of that text searching other mistakes of other films.

A really good mistake is in the film Scary Movie 3, when they are in the house, the killer cut down the electricity but suddenly the people in the house receive a fax, how can it be possible?
In a Spanish film called Torrente 2 some people are driving they’re cars in the centre of the city at night, but suddenly when they crash to a barbecue it is after dark.
A film that seems to have a lot of mistakes is gladiator that appears in the school book, I looked for more mistakes and I discovered that a man is wearing mountain boots; it seems that Romans were very advanced, other error in that film it appears a carriage moved by a carboy gas.

In the famous film Matrix there is a very big mistake that is that when a man is shooting to Neo he avoid all the shoots but behind him there are some glasses and they don’t break, maybe the glasses avoid the shoots like Neo.

In conclusion the text of the English book say that it’s not a problem because only few people notice these errors but now it is very different because the internet is full of this mistakes and it’s very talked in the net, if you like this text you can go to see more and more mistakes on the internet because it’s really interesting and you’ll see more websites than you can imagine, for this reason I think that nowadays it’s very important not to make mistakes because in only one day or less the internet will be full of that, so make the things slowly and don’t make mistakes.

Mecano: yesterday, tomorrow and always

This year is the 25th anniversary of the Mecano pop group. I have chosen this subject for speaking, because Mecano has been one of the Spanish groups that the Spanish society of the decade of the 80 has marked.A group formed by three members Anna Torroja, Nacho Cano and Jose María Cano. They decided to create this group for the huge influence on those years of the group Los Pecos. At the beginning of their career they didn’t have much of success but they were afterwards a revolution where all the young people of those times felt identified with their songs. I believe that it can’t say what is their best disk because all have got good things.
Last year they decided to make a musical "hoy no me puedo levantar" about their great successes, the musical one has been made famous all over the world. Also they have used their songs in an advertisement of the Coca-Cola.This last year Anna Torroja has taken out a disk alone remembering their best songs like "Los Amantes" a categorical success.My mother always said that Mecano was the best group, I think that in the 80’s century was the best but now there are a lot of pop groups but Mecano was a symbol.


Every time, people buy a movable telephone before.
We used the telephones to send messages, to communicate to us with people from any part, to make photos…
We thought that with a movable telephone we have more freedom, but the truth is that we are more watched, since they can locate to us in almost all parts.
Now on a movable telephone you take everything what you need, camera of photos, telephone, radio, calendar, alarm and soon we will even be able to pay with it.
In years the women single we will take in our purse a telephone and two or three objects more.
Not you, but I do not leave house without my telephone, because I don’t like the sensation that if passes something to not they are going me to be able to locate. It would be possible to be said that the movable telephone is a very important thing for me.
In conclusion, from my point of view the movable telephones are necessary for the society.

The song of the video: BrEaKiNg FrEe

We’re soarin’, flyin’
There’s not a star in heaven

If we’re trying

Creating space between us
‘Til we’re separate hearts

But your faith it gives me strength
Strength to believe

Chorus #1

We’re breakin’ free

We’re soarin’


There’s not a star in heaven
That we can’t reach

If we’re trying

Yeah, we’re breaking free

Like a wave the ocean just can’t control

Connected by a feeling
Ohhh, in our very souls

Rising ‘til it lifts us up
So every one can see

Chorus #2

Troy: We’re breakin’ free

Gabriella: We’re soarin’

Troy: Flyin’

Ohhhh runnin’

To get to that place

To be all that we can be

Now’s the time

So we’re breaking free

We’re breaking free

Ohhh , yeah

More than hope
More than faith

This is true
This is fate
And together

We see it comin’

More than you
More than me

Not a want, but a need

Both of us breakin’ free

Chorus #3

Gabriella: Soarin’

Troy: Flyin’

There’s not a star in heaven
That we can’t reach
If we’re trying

Troy: Yeah we’re breaking free

Breaking free
Were runnin’

Ohhhh, climbin’

To get to the place
To be all that we can be
Now’s the time

Troy: Now’s the time

Gabriella: So we’re breaking free

Troy: Ohhh, we’re breaking free

Gabriella: Ohhhh

You know the world can see us
In a way that’s different than who we are

New eхperιмenт!!!™

Today, I have an experiment that we can do it all together because it is very impressive. It's easy.

We need only two ingredients: a bottle of two liters of Cocacola and a box of Mentos (candies). It's better that we do this out of the school or house.

Well, when we have all of this, we put the bottle in a secure site and we open it. After that, we take the box of Mentos and we put all the candies into de bottle at the same time (we need a piece of paper into a tube just big enough to hold the Mentos in order to help us).

Just when we do that....

Ok, I know the final result, but I want that all of you prove it. If you do the experiment, please, explain me your experience.

If Chapela wants, we can do it in class in 5 min, but, if anyone doesn't want to do it, I give you the explanation and the experiment in video the next week.

See you soon friends!!

A contribution from the Gordon Schools

Guy Fawkes Night
In 1605, thirteen men arranged a plot to blow up the houses of Parliament. They put 36 barrels of gunpowder in the cellars of the houses of Parliament. On 5th November Guy Fawkes went down into the cellar in an attempt to blow them up but he was stopped. He was caught and tortured, he was put onto a bonfire and left to burn.
Every year since then, British people celebrate the fact that the traitor’s plan was foiled. Since the foil of the plot, 5th November has become known as Bonfire Night and on this night people all over Britain light fireworks and burn a dummy on a bonfire to represent Guy Fawkes.
It has been doubted by some Englishmen whether we are commemorating the foiling of their plan or honouring his attempt to do away with the government.

"ThE fAsHiOn"

Nowadays, the physical appearance has acquired more importance. Exclusively with the clothes that follow the tendencies of the fashion.
There are a lot of people who don't give importance at the money that they have to spend. The most important of them is always to go to the last with the most expensive marks of the fashion market.
For many, the fashion is considered an art. For others, simply it is a form to waste the money of the rich people and others that don't have as much money. They think that this money can be useful for humanitarian aids. An for the majority, it is a way to call the attention or to be something important.
But the fashion really is so essential for the society as they (designers, people of the fashion...) say? The price of the clothes corresponds at the cost of the mark or the prices are inflated too much? What do you think what the fashion is?
(I ask me if somebody wears the clothes of the photos to go to the street...)

El C.F. Pobla is not having its best moment. Last year, it obtains the third position in the first territorial division; however, this year it has begun the league very bad: only two matches have been won, one has been tied and five have been lost. This is the sad situation of a team that dreams of being at the top of the classification when the league finishes.
This dreadful beginning is basically due to lesions. It could be mentioned not only the clavicle damage of Albert Turch during the 4th football match, but also the muscular ache knee of Jordi Peroy, and even, the Eduard Bastus’ sprain two matches ago.
Anyway, C.F. Pobla should react to its present circumstances so as to be able to give away to its football fans what they really deserve.

Our Audiovisual Project!

This year, in our class, we are doing one very interesting audiovisual project about the history of years 30-60 in Spain. We work with groups about four people. In the beginning of the school year we choosed the topic and we will finish the project, more or less, in January.
There are six different shorts of 10 minutes, and in the end, we will put together in a film that will last about one hour. This film will be send in two competitions, one in Barcelona and the other in Salamanca. Some radio and TV programs and the news are interested in our work and next Monday TV3 will do one documentary about our project. This project is pioneer in Catalonia and unique in Spain.
Good luck!

Young people looking for a job...

Have you ever wondered why we, students and teenagers, don’t find a good job? Maybe it’s because managers are afraid of giving too much responsibilities to us or even though, they believe we are still younger for working in that particular job. Unfortunately, this last answer is the typical that we are used to listen at the end of a work's interview.
Giving responsibilities is not giving the management to somebody. Everybody,who really wants to work, has had to work hard so as to go on in his job. Then, why can not we be worthy of this job, if we work away? We agree old people have more experience than younger, but maybe we can also contribute and suggest new and creative ideas that managers had never thought about.Another point of view is the salary. Sometimes people think teenagers don’t find a job because we are ambitious and very meticulous when we are looking for a job. However, they don’t know we have been working for a long time with a “contract of practices” without receiving anything and at the present we would like to find a good one in better conditions.In short, I think we are in an ignorant and capitalist world where young people have to struggle and try to survive in the best possible way.

What do you think about this?
You can show or give me your opinion!

For or against a gap year.

"Would you like to have a free year, before university, to travel, work and meet new people and whatever you want?" In some countries as UK this is a tradition. When people finish the studies, and before going to university, they have a gap year. It's not the case of our country where people don't stop between these two periods.

A gap year has a lot of important and interesting things. First of all people think it's only a year of relax without preoccupations and problems. But it's not the meaning of a gap year. If people don't study during this period it's not only to relax. The teenagers who travel a year before going to the university want to have new experiences, with new people and in new places. They can learn other languages to.

It has a lot of positive consequences to travel a whole year but there are disadvantages to. For example, in a gap year, you spend a lot of money in hostels, travelling and in all you need during this time. So you have to have earned a lot of money if you don’t want to become a penniless in a foreign country. In addition a year “off” it’s bad for your studies since you forget a lot of important concepts during a year without studying.

At the end, and comparing the two possibilities, I would prefer not to have a gap year before university. I think you are most prepared if you don’t have any pause between the studies.

Live in la Pobla

Living in a small town has got a lot of advantages but, like all the thinks it has hot disadvantages to, I’m going to write a for an against essay and you will discover my opinion about this topic because I think it’s very interesting to us.

On the one hand here in Pobla we have a small school and that mean that classes are smaller and teachers know more the opinions of students than in the big cities, I have read in our bloog an opinion of a German student and I think it’s very important to read, he says that hear in our village, people are very friendly and everybody knows all the people in the village.
Pobla although it’s a small town we have got a cinema and it’s a very important think, however here the cinema is always empty and there are few weeks only the weekends.

On the other hand our town hasn’t got a theatre, there isn’t shopping centres and here clothes and all things are more expensive than in the city, for this reason we go to Lleida or Barcelona to buy clothes or other important things, but I think that going far now is not a problem because roads are everyday more straight and comfortable and if you take the train or the bus it’s a moment to arrive to Lleida, the problem is if you want to study in the city because today flats are very expensive and you have to save a lot of money only to rent a flat with some friends, and then you have to pay university, food…

In conclusion I think that it’s very difficult to say where is better to live, here or in the city, but this is my point of view, it can be a quiet and lovely place or it can be a bored and old-fashioned town.

If you read the text you can take advantages for the bloog and post your opinion and all the class will be able to comment this topic and we will see our opinions of this topic because I think it will be very different opinions.

City or town?

cнιldren oғ мen™

I am going to talk about the film Children Of Men, the last movie that I saw, because, from my point of view, it is really impressive and a little hard, furthermore, is an excellent work.

Cradle in a book, the argument's film is that, acclimated in the future, in 2027, in a chaotic world in which humans can't procreate, an activist (the protagonist, Clive Owen) accept to help transport a miraculously pregnant woman to a sanctuary at sea, where her child's birth may help scientists save the future of humanity.

In the film, we can see as the immigrants are punished, the war, the suffering, the drama of the people who lose the hope to live, attacks, persecutions, the lost one of friends...

The film was fine and I enjoyed it a lot. I think that is an attractive production and I recommend you to see it whenever you can.

I hope that you like my comment and thanks for read it!!
