RESURRECTION FEST 2011

BY ALAIN NORIEGA, 2BTO-D
Resurrection Fest is an annual music festival. It is celebrated in Viveiro, in the province of Lugo. This festival HAS BEEN anually celebrated since 2006. There you can find bands of punk, rock and hardcore genres. I went there this year, and there were people from all over Spain, Portugal and France. International bands are invited to this festival. Some of those famous bands are Bring Me The Horizon, Architects, Bullet For My Valentine, Your Demise, Pennywise, Comeback Kid, among others. It's a 3-day music festival, including contests, games, clothes draws, etc. I stayed there for 5 days, sleeping in a tent in a park, relaxing and visiting the city of Viveiro. Resurrection Fest was one of my best experiences in my entire life. I bet I'm going again next year without any doubt!

STEVE JOBS

BY: JULIO CALLEALTA, 2BTO-B

The death of Steve Jobs is one of the most important news around the world.
Steve Paul Jobs was born the 24th of October 1955 in San Francisco. The Jobs family moved from San Francisco to Mountain View, California when Steve was five years old. He created Apple in 1976.
In the 80´s, he invented the first personal computer. In 1986, he acquired the computer graphics division of Lucas film Ltd, which was spun off as Pixar Animation Studios. In the 90’s, he released Toy Story. Some years later, he changed the music industry with the I pod.
Apple invented a lot of things, like the I phone or the I pad. After having all this, Steve Jobs have died.
Many people are sad because of his death. I think students will study Steve Jobs´ inventions at school.
He will be always rememberED as somebody who changed the world.

New York is one of the most famous cities of the worLd. It´s ALSO THE NAME OF A STATE of United States of America. This country has fifty states and it has three hundred eight million of citizens. New York is the city with more citizens of USA. New York is one of the most important cities of the world.

Other famous place is the Fifth Avenue which is a very large street. That street has a lot of shops, theatres and cinemas.
Other interesting place is Central Park  ,  which is one of the biggest parks of the world.
In my opinion, New York is an incredible city.

NY CITY: AN OPINION

BY: JAVIER GÓMEZ PASTRANA, 2BTO-D

When I visited NY, I was amazed by its building estructure. The city is known for the abundance of high buildings and skyscrapers.
The city is crowded, thousands of people walk from one place to another. Taxis are all over streets: Thousands of yellow cars, one after another. Times Square is the center of its tourism. There is nothing like it. Also, New York streets are full of stores and restaurants. 
Besides the beauty of its building, there is also bad things about it. NY is a city designed to spend money. The trash is thrown in corners until someone picks it up. 
In my opinion, the best place in Ny city is "the Statue of Liberty". Its suprising in every way.
In conclusion, NY is one of the mosT beautiful cities around the world, and it´s perfect if you want to spend a holiday, but from my point ofn view, NY isn´t a perfect place to live in, becAuse NY is designed to spend money. Nothing like Spain ;-)

CELEBRATION OF "PEPA" CONSTITUTION

BY: MARTA FERNÁNDEZ, 2BTO-C

Next year we will celebrate the bicentennial of the Constitution of 1812. This Constitution was promulgated in Cadiz, and it was very important because it was the first in Spain and the most liberal.
The town hall of Cadiz takes this opportunity to be present among citizens  ,  and it will organize a lot of events to celebrate this anniversary for example: military parades, award ceremonies, concerts, museum openings, and especially the biggest celebration is to put the name of the second bridge related TO the Constitution of 1812.
The town hall of Cadiz has prepared this celebration of freedom since many years ago. In mi opinion, this is a great moment for celebration, but the town hall should invest in unemployment.

RUGBY WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP

BY: JAVIER FERNÁNDEZ, 2BTO-B

Rugby World Championship is being played since this month. A few days ago, it finished the qualifying stage. We find as firsts of groups: New Zelanda, England, Argentina and South Africa  ,  and we find as seconds of groups: France, Wales, Ireland and Australia.
In this part of the championship, we have seen a lot of good matches, for example, South Africa versus France, or New Zelanda versus Australia. Also  ,  we can see that there are two important teams that have been eliminated, as Italy and Scotland.
The teams that have reached semifinalS are Wales, France, New Zeland and Australia. Everyone thinks that the teams of New Zeland and France are the favourite teams  ,  but, in my opinion  , , all of them can have possibilities to lift the cup, because they can have a good match and they can give the surprise. Good luck for all!

ITALY, MY OPINION

BY: ISABEL RASCÓN, 2BTO-D

My favourite place belongs to Europe, it has the shape of a boot, it's Italy. For me, it is the most romantic country, some people go there on holiday. I think that people like this place because it's very beautiful and there are a lot of very interesting places like Venice and Florence. The food is also very good and Italians are very nice.
The most romantic place is the Milvio Bridge. For me, my favourite Italian food is pasta. I also think, that Rome is a place where there is much love.
Tourists prefer to go to romantic places on holidays and with a very good food, these things can be found in Italy.

SING WITH ME: "ECHOES" BY THE RAPTURE

MISFITS (Intro) Echoes - The Rapture + Lyrics
The city breathing
The people churning
The conversating
The price is what?


The conversating
This place is heaven
I put on lipstick
The price is what?

Life makes echoes
If you see them
Life makes echoes

Come together
Come together
Come together
Come together
