ENVIRONMENT, NATURE AND WILDLIFE, ENERGY CONSERVATION

1. The biggest challenge we face is conservation of energy. We get 85% of energy in the process of burning fossil fuels: oil, coal, gas. On a regular basis it generates large volumes of CO2.


Releasing carbon dioxide results in irreversible climate change and destruction of ozone layer. Thus, we can either produce energy supply with no carbon footprint or find alternitive energy sources: solar energy, tidal wave or wind power.  All in all, it turns out to be not so easy to find enough sites to generate power we need. That is why, a great deal of mechanisms are being built offshore. To reduce carbon footprint we can use a carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology in which carbon dioxide is removed from the waste.

2.  The anchor in the second video states that the most urgent problem we should find a solution for is how to feed 10 billion people. Long ago we lived like any other animal. Despite bioderversity, every being competed on equal terms. We were dependent on the Sun causing the photothenthesis that produced food we eat. However, it changed its way, And now our biggest problem is how to feed 10 billion people without any worse damage to natural resources? So that our grandchildren and their children had something to enjoy.
3. The Earth is our first home. It's our duty to protect biodiversity, use eco-friendly design.Otherwise, we are sure to face dire consequences. But everything is in our hands.  It's my firm conviction that our country should create ventures that will major in preventing global warming. Our govermnent should install green taxes on those who do not recycle waste or throw away garbage. Besides,there is a great deal of species of animal that are on the verge of extinction and need our help. Keeping them in captivity is not the way out. We should bear in mind that taking care of endangered species, preventing water, air, soil pollution, deforestation is our duty. I strongly believe that my country will be eco-friendly by 2030. Otherwise, we are about to face eco-disaster.

TRAVEL, TOURISM AND HOLIDAYS, MIGRATIONS
What can be better than going on a trip to the flourishing capital, vibrant city that you have always had a desire to visit? Paris, for instance😍 Just imagine yourself strolling along its cobbled streets, going on excursions, soaking up the atmposhere of the city of love. Seems to be perfect, doesn't it?


Or if you want a place where you can get away from it all and where you can laze around and spend your dream holiday, what could be better than enjoying unspoilt nature somewhere near the seaside in the open air? 🌴🌊
 NEVERTHELESS, there is a dark side of tourism when people instead of these places catch a plane and make a reservation in a run-down hotel in the place that is off the beaten track just to see the place where tragic horror events happened. There are a great deal of cons referring to dark tourism.
1. CHANGE OF PRIORITIES OF GOVERNMENT. If a city turns out to be a popular "dark tourist" destination, it may have bad consequences. The government start focusing on the potential influx of money at the cost of focusing on local issues.
2. HIGHER PRICES. Having a status of a popular destination does its bit. Prices do go up to produce a larger profit.
3. DISRESPECT. Instead of commemorating such places, people go sightseeing there, making camp sites to have fun thinking that it offers a unique experince. As it happens, they do not realize that  do a bad turn and this place may have occurred a tragedy for some.
Of course, I agree that you may be captivated by some of these places if you're keen on history. In this case it can be cognitive to integrate into atmosphere of past.
All in all, it's my firm conviction that in advance of setting out to such places, make sure that it's safe for your health and you won't face the animosity and prejusice by local citizens.


MEDIA, NEWS, CELEBRITY
1.Recreation turned out to be breaking news. There were lots of reporters, journalistscorrespondents. The latest news about "Recreation" hit the headlines and acttracted attention of the majority of students of our university. The process of pointing out the winner was rather a controversial decision.
The most active team was named and the winners won the praise for their efforts and, needless to say, continued with celebrating their achievements in the full glare of publicity.
2.All the competitors revealed a secret that this event has a significant impact on the student life. And we should give credit to those who tried their best to organise this sport event. I am going to quote one of the participants - Nataliia Androsiuk whom I had an in-depth interview with. She says:"I totally enjoy our success and fully accept the fact that we should hold such events more often not only to show the importance of going in for sport but to feel this unique atmosphere of friendship and unity". She stated clearly and denied the rumour about the competitions being judged unfairly. Thank her for not being economical with truth. Nevertheless, every team received their nominations for being the fastest, the wittest etc and they felt a sheer bliss for being a part of this event.

HISTORY, POWER, CONFLICT
Nobody could have probably imagined that a small European country could become a threat to peace, cause havoc and bring about the downfall of a great number of countries.Germany didn't accept the plea for peace and the 2nd World war was declared. Allied troops decided to offer the resistance this fierce fighthing and stand up for lasting peace in the whole world.
This war is considered to have a huge impact on the course of history. It involved lethal weapon, Guerilla warfare, nuclear weapon, a great deal of military operations. Vast majority of people died guarding and serving their countries because of Germany which was unwilling to compromise. For a long time people suffered the consequences and recalled all horors of this war in their memories.
I am interested in this heroic fight of Allied troops because it makes up history of my country. I  take it seriously because "Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it".


MONEY, PERSONAL FINANCE
This game lets you see the world through the eyes of a poverty-stricken person but simultenously shows the importance of being thrifty:making cutbacks for a rainy day, keeping track of our outgoings and being really tight when it comes to money. An interesting version of life that makes you tighten your belt and live on a shoestring to make ends meet.
