THE STORY OF JEANS jeans

In 1996, someone found some very old clothes in an old mine in Nevada, USA; they included a pair of dirty old jeans. Today, those jeans are very valuable, and they are now in the Levi Strauss Archival Collection, in San Francisco. The jeans, which are over 140 years old, are the oldest pair of Levi’s 501 jeans in the world.
They are almost the same as a modern pair of 501’s; there are just some small differences in the detail. For instance, today’s 501’s have two back pockets, the old pair just has one.

THE STORY OF JEANS

jeans    Jeans were the classic clothes of the American West.
In 1853, a young tailor from Germany, called Levi Strauss, began working in San Francisco; Levi sold thick canvas to miners; the miners used the canvas to make tents.
One day, a miner told Levi that he could not find trousers that were strong enough for work in the gold mines. Levi decided to make some trousers out of canvas.
Very soon, he had sold all the canvas trousers he had made! They were just what miners wanted.
However, the canvas was rather heavy andstiff. Levi therefore began to look for a different textile; soon he found a heavy textile from France; it was called serge de Nimes. Americans just called this de Nimes, and this name soon got reduced to denim.
Denim was a bit lighter than canvas, but it was very strong; it was ideal for miners.
However, original denim was almost white, and miners did not like the color! Their denim trousers got dirty as soon as they began working! Continue reading

Love

Love is the best feeling in the world. Love makes the world go round. It is the greatest mystery of all times. If you ask someone “What is love?”, he or she will hardly find enough words to express its meaning. Love can be different. There is love for parents, love for children, love for animals, love for friends, first love, love for husband or wife, boyfriend or girlfriend. When you love someone or something, your heart and soul become warmer and kinder. People, who carry love in their hearts, are always happy and in good mood.

Love helps to live and survive in the hardest moments of our lives. Almost all feelings in the world have some advantages or disadvantages. However, love has only advantages. It brings harmony and peace. The only type of love that can be painful is unrequited love. It’s when you love someone, but he or she doesn’t feel the same about you. It’s sad but it often happens. Moreover, I think that all people have experienced one-sided love at least once in their life. Again, I don’t think it’s a disadvantage of love. One-sided love teaches us something new, enriches with life experience and makes us stronger. Some wise men even say that one-sided love is better than none. Another disadvantage of love is its role in wars. Many ancient wars started because of love to a woman. Still, I think that love is the most important thing in everyone’s life. That’s why poets make verses, directors shoot films and composers write songs about it.

All people in the world want to love and to be loved. When love is mutual, it is the best thing that can ever happen to a man.

Types of questions

In English, there are four types of questions: general or yes/no questions, special questions using wh-words, choice questions, and disjunctive or tag/tail questions.

Let’s look at each type in more detail.

GENERAL OR YES/NO QUESTIONS

Common questions that can be answered with a simple “yes” or “no” are logically called yes/no questions.

As a rule, this kind of question relates to the whole sentence, and not to a separate element of it.

For example:

  •         Do you like this country? –
  •         Does Jane know about your new job? –
  •         Can I call my sister? –
  •         Is it cold outside? –
  •         Are they ready for the trip? –
  •         Are you hungry? –

To ask such general questions, the appropriate rising intonation should be used at the end of the sentence.

The answer can be a brief “yes” or “no.” Or, a longer answer can be given: “Yes, I do.” “No, I don’t like this country.” The response to a question depends on the verb used.

Try to remember this formula: answer the question the way it was asked.

If the question begins with a form of the verb “to be” – am, is, are – then answer “Yes, I am/he is/they are,” or “No, I am not/he isn’t/they aren’t.”

It is similar to auxiliary verbs (do/does, did, will, have/has):

  •         Did she clean the room? – Yes, she did/No, she didn’t.
  •         Have you done your homework? – Yes, I have/ No, I haven’t.
  •         Will you buy that dress? – Yes, I will/ No, I won’t.

SPECIAL OR WH-QUESTIONS

A special question, as you can guess, uses a certain word at the beginning of the sentence. The questions words whowhatwherewhenwhyhowhow many, etc., are used to begin the question:

  •         Where is he from? –
  •         When did you come here? –
  •         How did you meet her? –
  •         How many eggs do we need for this cake? –
  •         Whose children are playing in the yard? –

Note that questions about a subject (who? what?) have their own special structure; they do not require an auxiliary verb, we replace the subject with the question word.

For example:

  •         We go to the cinema. – Who goes to the cinema?
  •         The glass is on the table. – What is on the table?
  •         Most girls here wear skirts. – Who wears skirts here?

You can see that after the question words who and what, the third-person singular form of the verb should be used.

We use special questions to get specific information. This implies that the answer will be more detailed.

CHOICE QUESTIONS

Choice questions are questions that offer a choice of several options as an answer. They are made up of two parts, which are connected by the conjunction or.

Choice questions can be either general or specific. If the question does not centre on the subject of the sentence, a complete answer is needed.

For example:

  •         Does she like ice cream or sweets? – She likes ice cream.
  •         Where would you go, to the cinema or the theatre? – I would go to the cinema.
  •         Is he a teacher or a student? – He is a student.

However, when the question concerns the subject, the auxiliary verb comes before the second option. The answer is short:

  •         Does she make it or do you? – She does.
  •         Did they buy that house or did she? – They did.

GENERAL QUESTIONS

  1. Ted’s advice wasn’t clever.
  2. They had to go to school on Saturday.
  3. He won’t be able to speak Italian in two months.
  4. They are not going to meet him.
  5. She mustn’t take these pills.
  6. She won’t have to write the exercise again.
  7. He couldn’t swim last summer.
  8. She has to wear a uniform.
  9. She will be able to make sandwiches tomorrow.
