it is amazing

it is amazing - this technological tricks....

listen and put down the main facts.

Here is the beginning:

"I've been intrigued by this question of whether we could evolve or develop a sixth sense. A sense that would give us seamless access and easy access to meta-information or information that may exist somewhere that may be relevant to help us make the right decision about whatever it is that we're coming across..."

I got this clip from Beau, my friend from the USA; I think it will be interesting for my students to watch a singing robot and will help them to find out more on this topic

Russian TV news

another piece of TV news here

Astrakhan' is a big city on the Volga river. 88-year-old resident Eugenia Kekina charitably gave all the money she had saved for her life to the city maternity hospital. She said she did not have her own children so she had been saving money in order to be able to help babies. Hospital workers said granny's money might help to save many lives. They are going to buy expensive medicines for prematurely born babies.

Russian picece of TV news

Monica would like to know more about Russia.
Fall is the time for gathering potatoes. There were too many rains in Khabarovks region this fall. Too difficult for machines to pick potatoes from the very wet soil. Local people were invited to help. Volunteers can take potatoes home as well. 'Let's save the harvest together!' is the motto of the action. Students also help. The gathered potatoes are for hospitals and orphanages as well. 5,000 people took part in the action last week. Volunteers have to work fast, the first autumn frosts might start at the weekend. Their contribution into the harvest rescue is immense.
It can also serve as a Listening exercise =)

CNN Listening for Robert and Anton

CNN Listening exercise for Robert and Anton. Get ready for the class, guys!

Here is some more info to read on about Christopher McDougall (click on this link)

Born to Run: Christopher McDougall Says Humans Evolved to Run Like the Tarahumara

Like many runners, journalist Christopher McDougall got hurt. A lot. And like many of those injured runners, he was told that his aches and pains were a natural consequence of his chosen form of exercise. "Running," one doctor told him, "is your problem." McDougall didn't accept that—especially after reading about the Tarahumara Indians, who live in Mexico's Copper Canyons and run like stink, on shoes McDougall compares to flip-flops.
