interesting point of the text is the discussion of the new subculture - the 'web-world', which, according to the author, has no prejudices between racial groups and different sexes.However, being very optimistic about the Internet the author sometimes uses doubtful argumentation. For instance, she is stating as a fact that many people found their true love using the network. Probably, a sentence like this needs some statistics to be proved.
There is also another suggestion that in the near time it will be possible to remove the language barrier between the American Internet and the rest of the world. At present, translating software is not effective enough to produce a readable text. These programs can be used only for word-to-word translations. Another question is whether the language barrier needs to be removed. Probably after the barrier no longer exists the American culture could easily invade the rest of the world. We can already see the example of such an invasion on TV outside the United States.
Though there are certain drawbacks in the argumentation of the article, the author is critical in general and presents both positive and negative aspects of the Internet. Either for good or for bad, the Internet is progressing and expanding. In modern society it is impossible to avoid using modern technologies like World Wide Web. The text is worth to be read by anyone who is interested in the latest technological achievements.
Donetsk is one of the biggest regional centers of Ukraine. Its area is 381 square kilometers. The population of Donetsk is more than one million but at the end of the 19th century less than 30 thousand people lived and worked in a small settlement called Yusovka. The city was founded in 1869 in the place of kazak's settlements. The beginning to the city was given by coal mines and metallurgical plant of Novorossijskaya company.
And now Donetsk is one of the largest industrial centers of Ukraine with such highly developed branches of industry as coal, metallurgy and machine building. Coal industry is the leading branch of industry in the city. There are 150 industrial enterprises and unions in Donetsk. One sixth of all the production of the Donetsk region is produced in the city.
Donetsk is the city of parks and gardens; it is also famous for its roses, which bloom from early summer till late autumn gladdening the eye of dwellers and guests of the city. It consists of 9 districts, linked with each other by tram, trolley and bus communications. Also it has developed air- and railway communications.
Nowadays the city is an important scientific and cultural center of Donetsk coal basin. There are 3 theatres, the Concert Hall, the circus, cinemas, Palaces of Culture and clubs, museums, a Picture Gallery and Planetarium. Besides, there are architectural monuments of local importance, of sculpture and history, and memorial places. Thanks to its remarkable architecture we have many places of interest in the city: Artyoma street, Lenin Square, the Recreation parks etc.
The inhabitants of Donetsk have places for rest after hard day. At their service there are Central Park of Culture and Rest, and branches of it - Lenin's Komsomol Park and Sherbakov Park. In the outskirts of city there are Donetsk Botanical Gardens
Though Donetsk looks gloomy and gray in winter, as does every large industrial center, a lot of greenery, beautiful buildings, the Kalmius and numerous lakes make the city wonderful in spring and in summer.
*Life of youth in Great Britain
The home is the central focus of most people's lives in Britain, particularly for those who are still attending school. The majority relies upon their home environment as a place of security and upon their parents as the main providers of food, money and other necessary amenities for life, as well as general advice. Young people spend a lot of their leisure time in the home with other members of their family or with friends.
After the home, school is the main social environment where children not only receive their formal education but also develop their identities within peer groups. All schoolchildren in Great Britain are encouraged to take up activities, which complement their academic and vocational education and help to identify their individual talents, such as sports, drama, music and creative pursuits. Many of these form part of school curricula.
The Youth Service in Britain also promotes the personal development and informal social education of young people aged 11-25. A recent survey estimated that nearly 6 million young people in this age group are either current or past participants in the Service.
Youth clubs and centres are the most common types of Youth Service provision. They encourage their members to participate in sport, cultural and creative activities, and community service.
Many foundations and trusts provide finance for activities, which develop the latent talents of Britain's youth. The Prince's Trust and the Royal Jubilee Trust, for example, help individuals and organisations active in youth-oriented projects related to urban deprivation, unemployment and young offending.
The topic I am going to speak about is London. From the geography lessons you know that East meets West in the Greenwich meridian. It is in London.
London, one of the world's biggest cities, situated on the river Thames, is the capital of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, the residence of British sovereign. London is a great industrial and cultural center with the population of more than seven million people.
London consists of four main districts, which differ from each other. These are the City, Westminster, the West End and the East End.
The City is small in area but it is the business center of London. Many banks and offices are situated there. The heart of City is the Stock Exchange.
Westminster is the most important part of the capital. It is the administrative center. The Houses of Parliament are there. It is a beautiful building with two towers and a very big clock called Big Ben. Opposite the Houses of Parliament is Westminster Abbey. It is a very beautiful church built over 900 years ago. The tombs of many great statesmen, scientists are in the Abbey. There is Trafalgar Square where the famous Nelson Column stands as the memory about Nelson's great victory. It is interesting to know that the column is situated in the geographical center of the city. This square is always open for public meetings and demonstrations.
To the west of Westminster is the West End. Here we can find most of the big shops, hotels, museums, art galleries, and concert
