School uniform - Pupils at most secondary schools in Britain have to wear a school uniform. Shoes are usually black or brown. Arguments. Senior students don't have to wear their school uniform. White blouse for girls with a dark-coloured skirt and pullover. This topic looks at a very large number of arguments about uniforms.

Mass Media - Rocking around the Christmas tree. Answer the questions. Advantages. Thank you for attention. Whenever the weather is cold. Mass Media. How do you feel. English marks. Sources of information. Verb activator. .

Education system - It surprises you? Certainly, it is possible to continue "to swot away" sciences independently. Fundamental nature of preparation, its initial "nesuzhennost" allows to replace a profession easily, if necessary. That gives this variety of opportunities what to prefer? But it not the best option.

Paracas - Paracas. Parakasskie mummies. Ancient ceramics. The dead man wore a loincloth or decoration. The necropolis. To fixing of this pose. The word "Paracas". Infants were painful operations. We know of this culture. It is assumed. Massive trepanirovanie skulls. Tello found around the cave. Removed from the skull of the brain.

School uniform - White blouse for girls with a dark-coloured skirt and pullover. During the 1990s state schools in the USA began to adopt uniforms. Shoes are usually black or brown. Senior students don't have to wear their school uniform. Boys wear a shirt and tie, dark trousers and dark-coloured pullovers. Arguments.

Hippy - Ideology.Values. The idea of equality and freedom lies in hippies ideology. The origin. And if you make evil as an answer to violence you increase it twice. They prefer living in forests as our ancestors did. Also it consists in rejection from modern cities, technological progress. Epigraph. Mottos, slogans.
