Last night we went to a football match. We took a bus. The bus was overcrowded as many people wanted to see the match. We got off the bus and went in the direction of the stadium. While we were crossing the road, I saw Victor. He was stending at the corner. He said he waited for his friend who came to St Petersburg the day before and wished to see the new stadium. A man
came up to me and asked if I had a spare
ticket for the match. Victor told us that two boys just asked him whether he had a spare ticket. We enteredthe stadium just as the football players came out on to the field. At the entrance to the stadium we met Sergei. He showesus to our seats and (to ask) me if I played football in my childhood. We agreed to meet in the snack bar during the interval.

Constituents of Good Health

First, we have our physical health. This means being fit physically and in the absence of any kind of disease or illness. When you have good physical health, you will have a longer life span. One may maintain their physical health by having a balanced diet. Do not miss out on the essential nutrients; take each of them in appropriate quantities.

Secondly, you must exercise daily. It may be for ten minutes only but never miss it. It will help your body maintain physical fitness. Moreover, do not consume junk food all the time. Do not smoke or drink as it has serious harmful consequences. Lastly, try to take adequate sleep regularly instead of using your phone.

Next, we talk about our mental health. Mental health refers to the psychological and emotional well-being of a person. The mental health of a person impacts their feelings and way of handling situations. We must maintain our mental health by being positive and meditating.

Subsequently, social health and cognitive health are equally important for the overall well-being of a person. A person can maintain their social health when they effectively communicate well with others. Moreover, when a person us friendly and attends social gatherings, he will definitely have good social health. Similarly, our cognitive health refers to performing mental processes effectively. To do that well, one must always eat healthily and play brain games like Chess, puzzles and more to sharpen the brain.

How to create fake news: a guide

Every time you’re online, you are bombarded by pictures, articles, links and videos trying to tell their story. Unfortunately, not all of these stories are true. Sometimes they want you to click on another story or advertisement at their own site, other times they want to upset people for political reasons. These days it’s so easy to share information. These stories circulate quickly, and the result is … fake news.

There is a range of fake news: from crazy stories which people easily recognise to more subtle types of misinformation. Experts in media studies and online psychology have been examining the fake news phenomenon. Read these tips, and don’t get fooled!

  1. Check the source

Look at the website where the story comes from. Does it look real? Is the text well written? Are there a variety of other stories or is it just one story? Fake news websites often use addresses that sound like real newspapers, but don’t have many real stories about other topics. If you aren’t sure, click on the ‘About’ page and look for a clear description of the organisation.

  1. Watch out for fake photos

Many fake news stories use images that are Photoshopped or taken from an unrelated site. Sometimes, if you just look closely at an image, you can see if it has been changed. Or use a tool like Google Reverse Image search. It will show you if the same image has been used in other contexts.

  1. Check the story is in other places

Look to see if the story you are reading is on other news sites that you know and trust. If you do find it on many other sites, then it probably isn’t fake (although there are some exceptions), as many big news organisations try to check their sources before they publish a story.

  1. Look for other signs

There are other techniques that fake news uses. These include using ALL CAPS and lots of ads that pop up when you click on a link. Also, think about how the story makes you feel. If the news story makes you angry, it’s probably designed to make you angry.

If you know these things about online news, and can apply them in your everyday life, then you have the control over what to read, what to believe and most importantly what to share. If you find a news story that you know is fake, the most important advice is: don’t share it!

Translation

Harlan Sewall by Edgar Lee Masters

You never understood, O unknown one,
Why it was I repaid
Your devoted friendship and delicate ministrations
First with diminished thanks,
Afterward by gradually withdrawing my presence from you,
So that I might not be compelled to thank you,
And then with silence which followed upon
Our final Separation.
You had cured my diseased soul. But to cure it
You saw my disease, you knew my secret,
And that is why I fled from you.
For though when our bodies rise from pain
We kiss forever the watchful hands
That gave us wormwood, while we shudder
For thinking of the wormwood,
A soul that’s cured is a different matter,
For there we’d blot from memory
The soft-toned words, the searching eyes,
And stand forever oblivious,
Not so much of the sorrow itself
As of the hand that healed it.

Հարլան Սիվալ ՝ Էդգար Լի Մասթերսի

Երբեք չհասկացար , ո՛վ անհայտ,
Թե ինչու ինձ կրկին վճարեցին
Ձեր նվիրված բարեկամությունն ու նուրբ ծառայությունները
Չնչին շնորհակալությամբ,
Դրանից հետո աստիճանաբար հեռացրեցի իմ ներկայությունը ձեզանից,
Որպեսզի ինձ ստիպված շնորհակալություն չհայտնեք,
Եվ հետո լռությամբ, որին հաջորդեց
Մեր վերջին բաժանումը:
Դուք բուժել էիք իմ հիվանդ հոգին: Բայց այն բուժելու համար
Դուք տեսաք իմ հիվանդությունը, իմացաք իմ գաղտնիքը,
Եվ այդ պատճառով ես փախա քեզնից:
Չնայած, երբ մեր մարմինը ցավից ապաքինվում է 
Մենք հավերժ ջերմացնում ենք մեր զգայուն ձեռքերը
Դա մեզ ջերմություն տվեց, մինչ մենք սարսռում էինք
Ջերմության մասին մտածելով,
Բուժված հոգին մեկ այլ հարց է,
Որովհետև մենք հիշողությունից կարող ենք հեռացնել,
Գեղեցիկ հնչող բառերը, որոնող աչքերը,
Եվ ընդմիշտ մոռանալ այդ ամենը,,
բայց վիշտը՝ չենք կարող

Եվ այն բուժող ձեռքը։
