Every year we see on the television millions of homeless people on the streets in impoverished conditions and frozen by the cold. but why are they there? Many people have had a problem so they decide to run away from their present life due to depression and some are thrown out on the street because they can't afford to pay for their rent due to some addiction! Many people give to the homeless because they are deprived of everyday needs; to be honest, many, in the beginning, were happy and due to crying off feeling sorry for themselves or taking drugs to impress their friends they have gone into debt. But, to be honest if they changed their belief they wouldn't be there because they would have the willpower to change it. It is out of laziness they sit round a fire on the 25th of December with a bottle of whiskey to share between 20 of them. I am not saying here that they are ALL out there because of laziness; it's just that some of them can use a bit of common sense and a bit of willpower to be out of the position they are!!!!!! These people whom could have have a good life could have be a great help to today's society, but unfortunately they have decided to take the easy (but in the end HARD!!!) way out.
A lot of pupils at GCSE are made to do Technology, whether it is Resistant Material or Graphics. However, I did Resistant Materials on the SEG board. It was 60% and 40% on the exam. When I came to do the coursework i was amazed at how much graphics and pen to paper was involved, i might well had done the graphics course as well. Also after doing all the designing and explaining why you chose the product you have to then build the thing. Thats okay cause thats why you did the course. But, then after you probably spent about 100 to 125 hours of work on it then they mark the thing really tightly. Also a thing i found was that they don't give any bonus points for complexity. Technology GCSE is Stupid.
MSN Messenger is well the easiest to chat to. Its a simple service but effective. Not only can you have a private chat with certain people but you can also contact them if they have a mobile phone or pager. The only problem i have found is that people have to be on hotmail to use it which is quite annoying because some friends just want to stick to their old address. However ITS BRILLIANT. It all the new sign ins pop up and tell you who has logged on and also you can actually speak to the other person like a telephone. This is a great service, GET IT!
Ah, there is good news upon Scottish Provident and Abbey National bankers as Abbey National are in a bid to take over Scottish Provident. This is good news for the bankers as some are expected to get 6,000 pounds by the take over bid. I myself have been a Abbey National Banker for about 6 years now and i have no quarrels with the service and i am looking forward to this take over. Scottish Provident who have been formed since 1834 used to be one of the huge (and still are to an extent) Building Societies in England and Scotland.
The breaks on ITV are really annoying! When Formula One was on BBC1 it was very easy to watch the Grand Prix because there was no breaks therefore there was no breaks in concentration so you could watch it straight through, but now ITV have the rights and with the breaks it just gets boring to watch because you don't know where everyone is and the breaks are monotonous as you don't have anything to do, cause you got your drink in the last break and your stuck there on the couch watching these repetative advertisements. Even though the program itself with all the commentary is excellent it just needs to lose all the advertisements and maybe put them in a smaller box in the top right while the racing is going on.
The new magazine ‘New Era’ has really caused a stir. This new magazine is about divorce, and the many issues that lead from divorce. This new magazine has cause uproar upon many ministers who think that it advertises the glorious features about divorce. The Editor claims it is about the normal issues that every divorcing couples will have to face and guides the adult through the ordeal. Yes okay it may help people be guided through and cause less stress but I still don’t think this magazine is a good idea. It just doesn’t seem right that there should be such an easier path through such a big deal. Couples who could have stayed together will now with the aid of this magazine will split and cause more trauma for other people such as children (if involved). With this magazine hitting the news headlines they have made all this publicity for free and it’s not fair that some people should be able to write about how to dramatically change people lives.
Liverpool are potentially, the best side in the Premiership, and if you looked at their past recrd and their players you wouldn't bet a penny against them. Unfortunately, reality isn't like that. They're so inconsistent and could never put a run of fifteen games without defeat together. Many people bet on Liverpool and its legion of foreign players to win the title when each season they are predicted to finish in the same spot (fourth) each season. They do the same thing each season as well, have an average start to the season, then have a brilliant Christmas, an okay Easter and lose nearly every game of the last five. Trust me it'll happen this season, just don't bet on them.
The Gills will stay up this year! Gillingham have been playing well this season but yet have only won one division one game. Their results have went against them even though they have in all games bar the draw been 1-0 up with in the first half but mainly the first ten minutes. With Asaba back fit and Gillinghams' sell out crowds, Gillingham will survive the first year in Division One. With the previous two years of constantly good results Gillingham will have to adapt to an uneasy run of results and dig down deep just as they did in the Promotion Final last Year and prove all the odds wrong. I think the Gills will survive and hopefully in the next few years if young talent comes through, they may push for a place in the Premiership.
Harry Enfield & Chums has the worst impression of scousers ever. He thinks they all go round with Liverpool Shirts on, having a hairstyle with a comparison of Scary Spice and a huge moustache. Well I sorry but they don’t. It maybe funny to those outsiders but it is really ridiculous, and when people say scousers have a chip on their shoulder well it isn’t scousers that put it there, it’s these stupid comedians who believe scousers go found starting a fight with anybody who stares at them and then say ‘Calm Down’.
Airport just isn’t as good as ITV’s Airline! With Airport who had its old hero’s such as Jeremy (who’s probably the only Russian speaking Englishman) it has sub-sided and Airline has over taken it with its more happy stories. The problem with Airport is that it has too many unhappy stories such as people falling ill and people missing their flight unlike Airline, which has the happy stories of how well Easy Jet is doing and how room is made for passengers problems such as forgotten passports, so the passengers can catch their flight on time. Cheer up Airport!
Where’s Castaway 2000 gone! Unlike the successful Channel 4 program of ‘Shipwrecked’ BBC just hasn’t lived up to the reputation that it promised at the beginning of the year. This was a huge channel for a whole year that the fussy residents just can’t put up with. They have complained that they weren’t going on the island cause it wasn’t fully built, well they wanted to go on the island no one else said they’d get 5 star residence. But, since Easter I haven’t heard anymore of how they are getting on, on the island. Did the BBC just give up on they cause they complained too much? It was an excellent program back in January but since it hasn’t been on TV much lately, the program has fizzled out in peoples memories.
Robot Wars is a brilliant game show! It is literally Robot Wars as there are many big and little robots that fight against each other or sometimes against the house robots. On during the Winter I am looking forward see the next contestants take to the arena every Friday night on BBC2. With such favorite robots as 'Panic Attack' who take on the house robots this game show is a hit with me. I recommend this to anyone whom doesn’t have a faint heart. there is also a Robot Wars Club which is 10 pound membership, maybe it should be cheaper because thats a fair bit but, you get good magazines every quaterly and you get the chance to enter Robot Wars.
Top Gun is the best fighter film ever. I have watched this film many a time and love it all the time. Not only is an action film it is a very moving film when Tom Cruses (Maverick) best friend Goose gets killed. However, Tom recovers from this tragedy and he and The Ice Man become best of friends as Tom Cruse the predicted hero from the beginning help The Ice Man to defeat the enemy. It has been a few years since I have last dug this film out of the cupboard, but I shall be doing it once again. It’s a great film to watch!
Kickers style now a days is getting old. Everything goes out of fashion, but, this Kickers has taken it too far. They are still selling the old green and red tags on their shoes when the fashion has changed. They need to change and go for the ‘Base’ or ‘Frank Wright’ look where the shoes lads wear have a small heel and a more shiny finish to the shoe. Unfortunately, Kickers are a bit old fashioned in the Shoe department and need to re-think their shoe designs so the lads get to wear shoes that they can just slip on instead of having to tie.
San Francisco has many attractions that you must visit. With its nickname as the ‘Windy City’ it certainly lives up to its reputation. I found that it was absolutely freezing and that jumper/sweatshirts are a MUST. With its many hills and steep roads the best way to travel was by the tram if you decided to visit the centre of San Francisco but if you weren’t going very far then you should walk cause you could be standing around for a long time waiting for the service along time. There are a few sites to visit which can be in a very short space of time even in two days, so don’t worry but the must attractions are the Golden Gate Bridge, it’s the scariest thing you will probably do cause you think you’re going to be blown off, and visit Alcatraz where all the hardest criminals in America lived for many years of their life.
