Signs of bad books for English language are: an abundance of images, which often constitute up to 90% of space on the page, a huge font, futile exercise. However, the main weakness of the proposed literature is the lack of understanding of the authors of serious grammatical realities native of the English language on the one hand, and absolute ignorance of the authors of the Russian language. This, in turn, deprives the possibility of effectively studying English grammar in comparison with Russian, and leads to English / American pronunciation and develop the ability to understand speech at the hearing. With a huge supply of various 'miraculous' production of English pronunciation courses, in reality 99% of them – no more than a desire to earn on the sale of the course, ie, You buy some cd and booklets, pay for it a lot of money, and the output – again zero. Therefore, after several fruitless attempts to learn English, one comes to the realization that he needed help of a professional teacher or tutor in English. Realizing the lack of progress in an absolutely independent study of English, one begins to look or English courses or private tutoring in English.

Here there are several pitfalls. I would not recommend to choose 'untwisted' courses and schools. Not because I am against them as my competitors, but only because I am very familiar with the 'kitchen' of such organizations. Imagine yourself in the place the owner of such a school. Your vested interest – to get as much profit, therefore, you'll optimize their costs, and means to pay your teachers – at least.

Closer Examination

What On Earth: As the dust affects the atmosphere? Wilcox: Well, we know that the dust – it is not just a passive particle floating in the surrounding area. We also know that it can absorb or reflect sunlight. Dust emissions certainly cooled the planet by reducing the amount of sunlight that reaches its surface. Moreover, we know that dust can heat the atmosphere, although the degree of heating did not significantly set. What On Earth: What influences the fact that the particle will absorb rather than reflect the light? Wilcox: This is the color of the particles and, to some extent, with its shape. We call this property is the single scattering albedo, which, in essence, represents a the probability that a photon of light is more likely to disperse than absorbed. If the scattering is very high – say, 0.99 – we do not doubt that 99 out of 100 photons will be reflected.

If the scattering is less than, say 0.85, it means that there is a 15 – percent chance that the photon will be absorbed. What On Earth: Which model is valid for the dust of the Sahara Desert? Wilcox: Some of the dust Sahara – absolutely brilliant, and some – very dark. It depends on whether was brought from the sand and what is its mineralogy. What On Earth: Why the absorption of light by dust is of such importance? Wilcox: We have found that dust emissions, along with other factors, seem to shift the front of tropical precipitation precipitation (which usually fall on a narrow strip at the collision point of winds of the northern and southern hemispheres) north for about four or five degrees, the width is about 240 – 280 miles over the equator. What On Earth: Really? What attitude has dust to precipitation? Wilcox: The main trajectory of the dust from the Sahara, in most cases lies significantly north of the strip of Atlantic tropical downpours. At the same time, simultaneously with sand (dust) storms are strong heating of the lower atmosphere, thus the circulation of air over the ocean responds to this heating variable wind and distribution of rainfall in a northerly direction in the year period. The amount of precipitation depends on the passage of dust storm, even if the dust is not mixed with rain. What On Earth: Will the upcoming mission of Gloria (Glory) in the study of this phenomenon? I know that it has a device which will measure aerosols, such as dust? Wilcox: Certainly.

On the bright reflective surfaces such as desert – where it is almost impossible to distinguish aerosol from the surface – for us will be useful, any new information. What On Earth: What is the significance of migration to the north of precipitation during the dust storms? Wilcox: Certainly, people living in the area, interested in understanding how dust affects the distribution of rainfall in their area. The data obtained also support the idea expressed by one of my colleague – Bill Law (Bill Lau) – who has been studying the overhead heat pumps. The idea is that aerosols from dust storms and air pollution really affect the occurrence of monsoons. Space Flight Center. 'What an interesting time we can expect in the future', – exclaims Ofer.

The Importance Of A New Day

Every dawn brings in its wake a new day of life. And with the same routine as always: Sleeping, showering, dressing, going out, coffee in the morning, etc. Then, go to work, solve problems, deal with people, the bustle of hours, go home, reconnect with loved ones, sleep, live or die. Who knows. I'm particularly tired of "seeing" is always the same things and do not understand the power and excitement of being human. Must be at what I do. Well this makes my soul suffered fatigue buildup, that it violates, and sometimes will not let me fulfill my sacred duties.

Taking me in fact, until the limits of an absurd misunderstanding. So one day I decided to rebel and declare the absolute disobedience, he wished to see the world differently. From the previous night had begun to plot my conspiracy against the universal laws, leaving off the clock on time and sharp decline. Also, I dedicated myself to do the reading of another book I always wanted to read and not the book of life. So that night, I slept without revealing information that make me as he was accustomed, so that there was no doubt to my determination in wanting to do my particular job disobedience. But then, it happened at dawn, I saw my body flew through a window, and if it was a dream, but notice something that I had not even yet seen. Then to go flying, I saw clearly the tops of the trees, birds in flight, the path that is between the homes of a neighborhood, where a group of children was on her way to school, some holding hands by their mothers and hurried step, because apparently they were late.

Tennis Changes

Even before the new season of the 2009 Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) has developed and started to implement a new marketing strategy. And one of its constituent parts has become a powerful advertising campaign, launched in last year. It was introduced by external attributes as the original and colorful posters with images of the best players. A regularly updated printed materials accompany the various promotions – and charity action involving the players. Redesigned and the official site of ATP: he gave the more impressive, and even in some kind of space that underlies the global changes taking place in the men's tennis. Changed itself Athletes of lower rank? First of all: an updated and simplified rating, as well as a modified calendar of tennis tournaments. All this caused a fair criticism in the past, perhaps there are flaws in the future. But the main thing that could make a tennis functionaries – to preserve, in a crisis, a stable financial situation.

And, despite the forced reduction in contributions from tournaments, to keep the same level, prize paid to players. Nevertheless, male professional tennis and its megastar, alas, will not remain aloof from global economic upheavals. Reduction in income-known global brands will inevitably lead a review of sponsorship deals, of course, in the direction of decreasing deductions, and tennis players and tournament organizers. As you know, the lion's share of their considerable fees leading players receive, it is from transnational corporations, trapped now in a very difficult situation. But if the "top" tennis players will be forced to, just, moderate financial appetites, without seriously compromising their quality of life and sports training, the lower-level players will have much harder. Already, those who are outside the top hundred rankings, have big problems with the balance of income / expenditure and difficulty attracting sponsors. A, Further, these processes will lead to increased competition, because players who are not able to achieve better results, very soon find it necessary to leave professional tennis.
