In my history class, I learned that many people think that British people found out about curry
when they travelled to India in 1660. However, our teacher told us that wealthy English people
were eating curry dishes before British ships got to India. Also, I learned that pizza was made in
Persia in the 500s. They used to eat round, flat bread with cheese before Italian prepared the pizza
that everyone knows.

En mi clase de historia, aprendí que mucha gente piensa que los británicos descubrieron el curry
cuando viajaron a la India en 1660. Sin embargo, nuestra maestra nos dijo que los ricos ingleses
comían platos de curry antes de que los barcos británicos llegaran a la India. Además, me enteré
de que la pizza se hizo en Persia en el 500s. Solían comer pan redondo y plano con queso antes de
que Italian preparara la pizza que todos conocen.

Linkin Park pay tribute to Chester Bennington

Linkin Park have released their first official statement after the death of frontman Chester
Bennington last week. "Our hearts are broken. The shock waves of grief and denial are still
sweeping through our family as we come to grips with what has happened," it read.

"You touched so many lives, maybe even more than you realised," it continued. Bennington's body
was found at a private home in Los Angeles on Thursday. The LA County Coroner said he
apparently hanged himself.

He had previously struggled with addiction and had spoken to BBC Newsbeat about depression
and suicide.

By BBC news

Linkin Park rinde homenaje a Chester Bennington

Linkin Park ha lanzado su primera declaración oficial después de la muerte del líder Chester
Bennington la semana pasada. "Nuestros corazones están rotos. Las ondas de dolor y la negación
todavía se extienden por nuestra familia a medida que enfrentamos lo que ha sucedido", decía.
"Tocaste tantas vidas, tal vez incluso más de lo que creías", continuó. El cuerpo de Bennington fue
encontrado en una casa privada en Los Angeles el jueves. El forense del condado de Los Ángeles
dijo que aparentemente se ahorcó.

Anteriormente había luchado contra la adicción y había hablado con BBC Newsbeat sobre la
depresión y el suicidio.

Angels and Demons

Dan Brown – Chapter IV

1. Robert Langdon’s Saab 900S tore out of the Callahan Tunnel and emerged on the east side of
Boston Harbor near the entrance to Logan Airport. Checking his directions Langdon found Aviation
Road and turned left past the old Eastern Airlines Building. Three hundred yards down the access
road a hangar loomed in the darkness. A large number “4” was painted on it. He pulled into the
parking lot and got out of his car.

2. A round-faced man in a blue flight suit emerged from behind the building. “Robert Langdon?”
he called. The man’s voice was friendly. He had an accent Langdon couldn’t place. “That’s me,”
Langdon said, locking his car.

3. “Perfect timing,” the man said. “I’ve just landed. Follow me, please.” As they circled the
building, Langdon felt tense. He was not accustomed to cryptic phone calls and secret rendezvous
with strangers. Not knowing what to expect he had donned his usual classroom attire — a pair of
chinos, a turtleneck, and a Harris tweed suit jacket. As they walked, he thought about the fax in his
jacket pocket, still unable to believe the image it depicted.
4. The pilot seemed to sense Langdon’s anxiety. “Flying’s not a problem for you, is it, sir?”

“Not at all,” Langdon replied. Branded corpses are a problem for me. Flying I can handle. The man
led Langdon the length of the hangar. They rounded the corner onto the runway. Langdon stopped
dead in his tracks and gaped at the aircraft parked on the tarmac. “We’re riding in that?”

The man grinned. “Like it?”

5. Langdon stared a long moment. “Like it? What the hell is it?”

The craft before them was enormous. It was vaguely reminiscent of the space shuttle except that
the top had been shaved off, leaving it perfectly flat. Parked there on the runway, it resembled a
colossal wedge. Langdon’s first impression was that he must be dreaming. The vehicle looked as
airworthy as a Buick. The wings were practically nonexistent — just two stubby fins on the rear of
the fuselage.

6. A pair of dorsal guiders rose out of the aft section. The rest of the plane was hull — about 200
feet from front to back — no windows, nothing but hull.

7. “Two hundred fifty thousand kilos fully fueled,” the pilot offered, like a father bragging about
his newborn. “Runs on slush hydrogen. The shell’s a titanium matrix with silicon carbide fibers. She
packs a 20:1 thrust/weight ratio; most jets run at 7:1. The director must be in one helluva a hurry
to see you. He doesn’t usually send the big boy.”

“This thing flies?” Langdon said.

Dan Brown. Angels and Demons. Chapter IV


Ángeles y demonios

Dan Brown - Capítulo IV

1. El Saab 900S de Robert Langdon salió del Túnel Callahan y emergió en el lado este del Puerto de
Boston, cerca de la entrada al Aeropuerto Logan. Revisando sus instrucciones, Langdon encontró
Aviation Road y dobló a la izquierda pasando el antiguo edificio de Eastern Airlines. A trescientas
yardas de la carretera de acceso, un hangar se alzaba en la oscuridad. Se pintó un gran número
"4". Se detuvo en el estacionamiento y salió de su auto.

2. Un hombre de cara redonda y traje azul salió de detrás del edificio. "¿Robert Langdon?", Llamó.
La voz del hombre era amistosa. Tenía un acento que Langdon no pudo ubicar. "Ese soy yo", dijo
Langdon, bloqueando su automóvil.

3. "Tiempo perfecto", dijo el hombre. "Acabo de aterrizar. Sígueme, por favor. Mientras rodeaban
el edificio, Langdon se sintió tenso. No estaba acostumbrado a llamadas telefónicas crípticas y
citas secretas con extraños. Sin saber qué esperar, se había puesto su atuendo habitual: un par de
chinos, un jersey de cuello alto y una chaqueta de tweed de Harris. Mientras caminaban, pensó en
el fax en el bolsillo de su chaqueta, todavía incapaz de creer en la imagen que representaba.

4. El piloto pareció sentir la ansiedad de Langdon. "Volar no es un problema para usted, ¿verdad,
señor?"

"Para nada", respondió Langdon. Los cadáveres de marca son un problema para mí. Volando
puedo manejar. El hombre llevó a Langdon la longitud del hangar. Doblaron la esquina hacia la
pista. Langdon se detuvo en seco y miró boquiabierto el avión estacionado en la pista. "¿Estamos
montando en eso?"

El hombre sonrió. "¿Gusta?"


5. Langdon miró un largo momento. "¿Gusta? ¿Qué diablos es ésto?"

La nave antes de ellos era enorme. Era vagamente una reminiscencia de la lanzadera espacial,
excepto que la parte superior había sido afeitada, dejándola perfectamente plana. Estacionado allí
en la pista, parecía una cuña colosal. La primera impresión de Langdon fue que debe estar
soñando. El vehículo parecía tan aerodinámico como un Buick. Las alas eran prácticamente
inexistentes, solo dos aletas rechonchas en la parte trasera del fuselaje.

6. Un par de guías dorsales surgieron de la sección de popa. El resto del avión era de casco, unos
200 pies de adelante hacia atrás, sin ventanas, nada más que casco.

7. "Doscientos cincuenta mil kilos completamente alimentados", ofreció el piloto, como un padre
alardeando sobre su recién nacido. "Funciona con aguanieve de hidrógeno. La carcasa es una
matriz de titanio con fibras de carburo de silicio. Ella empaca una proporción de empuje / peso de
20: 1; la mayoría de los jets funcionan a 7: 1. El director debe tener prisa por verte. Él no suele
enviar al niño grande ".

"¿Esto vuela?", Dijo Langdon.

very judicious girl, so she does not want to be interspersed in her studies and more in English
which is one of the most difficult subjects of study. Ana has begun to study, in that moment her
friend Carlos arrives, who tells him that in order to study so much, Ana is very angry, but does not
pay attention to her. At that moment her sister Kata arrives saying that her friends are looking for
her and she she shouts so that they arrive where they are, Ana decides not to study, she could not
concentrate, her friends made a lot of noise, her sister on the one hand, Carlos who did not study
and her classmates who explained the subject of English.

difficult situation for Ana, she could not study, she lost the exam.

I received the great news that my great friend has just graduated from university after six years of
hard work, dedication, sleep, effort and a lot of love for your career as an architect, now those
difficult situations that you have passed will bear fruit, where each day you wake up you will give
the best of you and everything you learned. I remember that your parents did not want you to
study that career and that you said that you liked that therefore that was your favorite, and there I
was, your great friend, to support you and give you encouragement in that important decision,
thanks to it, Today you are a professional, proud of the decision you made 6 years ago, where you
only dreamed of being one day a great architect, the pride of your family and your people.

With all my heart I wish you the best and many successes in this long journey, it can be a bit hard,
but that happens, the important thing is always to look forward doing what you like most,
architecture, may God bless you and take care of you

How can we measure happiness?


by Philip Johnston
Western leaders are looking beyond traditional indices of economic and social well-being and
turning to ways of measuring national happiness. What makes you happy? The smell of new-
mown grass on a spring morning, perhaps; or the laughter of your children. For many of us,
happiness is spiritual, individual, difficult to define, and ephemeral. A Buddhist monk with no
[possessions] beyond his clothes and an alms bowl might consider himself [happier] than a City
financier with homes on three continents. If measuring happiness is a relatively new
phenomenon in the West, it has [underpinned] the public policy of one country for almost 40
years. The Kingdom of Bhutan has pursued the goal of 'gross national happiness' [since] 1972.
In addition to the promotion of equitable socioeconomic development and the establishment of
good governance, it also [stresses] the importance of the preservation and promotion of cultural
values.
Fragments taken for educational purposes from: Taylor, Jeremy

Although the history of Manchester stretches back to Roman [Times], when a small settlement
grew up around the Roman fort known as Mamuciam, it was not until the later [Years] of the
eighteenth century that it became a population center of any great magnitude. Records indicate
the [Population ] grew from 10,000 to approaching 80,000 in just a few decades, increasing to
around 150,000 by the Industrial Revolution, which saw its transformation into the country’s and
the world’s leading industrial [Metropolis]. The engine for this change was cotton, which began
to be imported [Via ] the port of Liverpool and which was delivered by canal to Manchester in the
latter part of the eighteenth [Century]. The rapid and profitable boom in textile manufacture saw
the streets of Manchester and surrounding towns become home to huge numbers of cotton mills,
textile print works and engineering workshops. The expansion of transport links facilitated this
[Development]. In 1824, one of the world’s first public omnibus services began in Manchester,
quickly followed in 1830 by the opening of the first steam passenger railway linking Liverpool
and Manchester.

El orden correcto de estos elementos es el siguiente:

1. The next morning he didn’t appear for breakfast either. After Clyde missed and extra-
special lunch, she called the police.
2. When the police asked her to describe Clyde, she told him that Clyde had beautiful green
eyes, had all his teeth but missing half of his left ear, and was seven years old and
completely white. She then told the officer that Clyde was about a foot high.
3. A bell went off. “Is clade your child or your pet?” The officer suspiciously asked. “Well,
he’s my cat, of course,” Mrs. Brown replied. “Lady, you’re supposed to report missing
persons, not missing cats,” said the irritated policeman. “Well, who can I report this to”
she asked. “You can’t. You have to ask around your neighborhood or put up flyers,”
replied the officer.
4. Mrs. Brown figured that a billboard would work a lot better than an 8”x11” piece of paper
on a telephone pole. There was an empty billboard at the end of her street just off the
interstate highway. The billboard had a phone number on it. She called that number, and
they told her they could blow up a picture of Clyde and put it on the billboard for all too
see.
5. “But how can people see it when they whiz by on the interstate?” she asked. “Oh, don’t
worry, madam, the only whiz by between 2 a.m. and 5:30 a.m. The rest of the day, the
interstate is so full of commuters that no one moves.” They told her it would cost only
$3,000 a month. So she took most of the money out of her saving account and rented the
billboard for a month.
6. The month has passed, but Clyde has not appeared. Because she has almost no money
in savings, Mrs. Brown called the local newspaper to see if anyone could help her rent the
billboard for just one more month. She is waiting but, so far, no one has stepped forward.
