Do we really know what is going on?


   We live in a dangerous world. The number of murders goes up every year, people are dying of cancer, more people get HIV, teen pregnancies are up, more teens are using drugs and the list goes on and on. You know this because you have heard all the statistics on the news and in the paper. But do you really have an accurate idea what they mean?
   The numbers are going up, but are they in proportion to the growth in population? Are more cases of these diseases being reported because of better testing techniques or are the diseases more prevalent? The fact is that without context pure statistics mean nothing. This growing trend of reporting only part of the whole information is getting more serious.
   The point of this article is that one should be aware of what is and is not being said. When a new fact or number is encountered, one should try to think about relevant information before forming an opinion with only partial truth. If we teenagers are to inherit the world, we had better be able to think critically, and form our own viewpoints, rather than be manipulated by other people.

Internet chat dating / advantages and disadvantages
         Nowadays surfing the Internet is already a trend for the majority of people in the world. It gives us a lot of opportunities and even people are getting more used to begin relationships by chatting “online”.
         When most people are dating, they are looking for a relationship that most defines their lifestyle. Dating should lead to a good first impression. In dating surroundings there should be a great conversational Atmosphere. In dating if all goes well it should lead to confidence that dating would be lasting and will bring to a closer relationship. But it is very hard to achieve by internet chat dating. But there are some bright sides too. Couples are feeling themselves less shy and more confident in what they have to say which helps a lot.
         In my opinion, internet chat dating is useless. You cannot express your feelings and emotions by texting. Internet chats could be for assigning a date but totally not for dating.

Internet chatrooms do not serve a useful purpose



        Online chat rooms have been around for a long while. They allow you to communicate with friends, family and strangers from all over the world. Before you decide to join a chat room, it is important to understand the different types and how to keep the chat safe.
        While chat rooms may be exciting cyber places to meet new people, there can also be a dangerous incident - to run into stalkers, pedophiles and others. In simple terms, be careful. You should also be careful about chat room websites that do not have rules. The "anything goes" philosophy is a dangerous one because it means anyone can do or say anything without being responsible for it. If you have children, check what chatting websites they use and the people they chat with.
        Chat room does not necessarily mean that it can not be a danger zone. Unfortunately, many sex offenders and pedophiles have fun in chat rooms and look for underaged children. There is no guarantee that any chat room website is completely safe and regardless of the rules.

Letter to our lovely principal :3


Dear Mr. Teplov,

I was forced by Ms. Siht to write a letter to you about all stress that students gain at school.

First of all, I would like to draw your attention on the time in which lessons begin. I think that 8 o’clock is very early for all of those young brains to work and increase their knowledge. Secondly, of course, the amount of homework. Do you really think pupils are doing absolutely everything they have to do at home? Well that’s an easy question and I bet you know the answer. I am just trying to say that all of our scholars need to do homework just for grades not for knowledge, so you should say to all teachers that from now on they should give to their pupils only very important homework and it should be interesting. If they will enjoy their homework, by doing it their brain will automatically remember what they did. Finally, just stop looking so angry, please. When students are walking pass or near you they feel so much stress.

I hope you will keep in mind what I said and our school will be a better place. I am looking forward to hearing from you.

Yours sincerely,
Olly

Story

It started like any other day… I woke up and did what I always do first. I went to the bathroom to tidy myself up. When I was going to grab my toothbrush I had noticed a red spot in the window. It was a big blood stain on the window of a house across the road. “What happened there?”- I wondered. A second after that thought I saw a silhouette of a man in that ‘red window’… He was packing something. I took my binoculars and had started my investigation. “That man… oh my god… He is putting some body parts in huge black plastic bags.”- I told to myself. I was very frightened by what I saw, but it made my investigation more interesting. I chose to get as close as I can. The man was all in green clothes and I remembered it. He started to leave that flat. He took his things with him. I grabbed my notebook with a pen and ran to stalk him. He had packed everything in his car and rode somewhere. I followed him on my car. He stopped near the sea to through away those bags with body parts. I started to write everything down and when I had lifted my head up I didn’t see him. Suddenly, I felt a mosquito bite. Unfortunately, it was that man… He made me an injection… While I was falling unconscious I saw his smiling face and he told me: “It is a big pleasure to meet you my next toy”.

Letter

Dear Friend,

I am writing to give you a little walkthrough for all your problems. Listen carefully and remember!

Firstly, you should talk to your parents. Tell them about your strong feelings. Try to convince them that she is a perfect match for you so they will try everything to accept her. Secondly, tell them that you understand their opinion, show them in what there were mistaken and explain everything nicely. Make them feel like you are on their side. Thirdly, say that you want them to understand your opinion, so they will be more focused on what you said. Finally, introduce Gloria to your parents and give them the chance to get to know her.

Your sincerely,

Oleg Zinchenko

Complaint Letter :3

Dear Jack,
This letter is to complain about service I recently received from a Apple customer service representative named Johnson.
I called Apple on second of July to find out how to deal with a problem I have had with iPad. After I had been on hold for several minutes, Johnson came on the line. I had to explain my problem to him several times because he did not seem to be listening and therefore asked me the same questions repeatedly. Johnson put me on hold for several minutes, and then returned to say he could not help me. Needless to say, I was quite frustrated.
I expected a much higher level of service from your company, and I am quite disappointed. Because I do not want to spend any more time on this problem, I am returning iPad immediately, and I expect a full refund. I will be informing my friends and family about this experience.
Yours faithfully,
Oleg
