Hockey :Hockey is one of the most popular fast-paced sports games in the world. It is an exciting and spectacular game played by two teams either on ice-rink or on a field. Each team presents a certain country or region and consists of six players: two defense-men, two wingers, one goalkeeper and one center man. Hockey players should be very skilled and agile. This game requires skillful skating and excellent stick handling. There are various types of hockey. The most popular and widespread games are field hockey, ice hockey, sledge hockey and street hockey. Field hockey is played on natural grass with a small, hard ball and J-shaped sticks. Ice hockey is one of the most spectacular sports of Winter Olympics. It originally appeared in the expanses of North America hundreds of years ago and is now played in many northern countries. First competitions in Canada were amateur, but gradually they became professional. The first professional league, known as NHL, was formed in 1917. The rules of the game are simple. The players try to score a goal into the opponents’ gate. The puck should completely cross the goal line and enter the net. Sledge hockey is played by people with physical disabilities. This sport is played during Winter Paralympics. Street hockey is played on hard surface, usually asphalt, with a ball instead of a puck. Being a rough game, hockey causes many injuries. Nevertheless, people love this game and enjoy watching it. Так наверно
Recently we went to the Puppet Theater named after Sergei Obraztsov. We are a mother, me and my younger brother Vitalik. We really enjoyed the theater. For the first time I was in a real theater. Before that, I was only attending shows and concerts in our House of Culture, I also went to the performances given by the theater actors in our school, in the assembly hall. Already only going to the building of the famous theater, I realized what a big difference this is - the tour performance of the artists and a real theater, albeit a puppet show. On the building of the theater, just above the main entrance, there are wonderful watches. Every hour the cock cries, and the shutters on the windows open. There appear figures of various fairy-tale heroes. The whole presentation is played. Only need to come to eleven or twelve oclock in the afternoon, because at this time the performance is longer. In the foyer of the theater is a museum of world dolls. Only there are no wonderful dolls, scenery and props for puppet shows! I remember the oldest dolls of the seventeenth century and the doll house-palace, also very old and surprisingly beautiful, made of real wood, there even curtains were real, made of red silk. We went to the buffet, as there was plenty of time, after all, we are invited to the theater forty-five minutes before the performance! But the time for the performance began. It was a play based on the well-known and beloved Mowgli. Sound, lighting, dolls - everything is so thought out to the smallest detail that you look and forget that before you only dolls. I, like my brother, worried about the heroes, was horrified by the bloodthirsty tiger Sherkhan, rejoiced at the successes and victories of Mowgli, the panthera of Bagheera, the bear of Balu. I even tried to take a picture of one scene without a flash, but then, when I showed the film, I saw only an empty kadrik - too weak light for a film. But my memory and pictures taken in the foyer and at the entrance will leave for a long time the joy that my mother gave us, giving us the opportunity to see the best puppet theater!
I arrived in Marshfield an hour before the meeting. I wondered why Drake, the chairman had thought that my presence was so important. I went into the local Party office. I had to be present every Friday evening and I intended to do so for years. My work was to interview a couple of dozen constituents about their housing problems, their pensions and a lot of individual problems.
After a year of elections I started to make excuses. I couldnt find houses for people when the houses didnt exist. I thought that these constituency problems were better dealt with by letter. In reality there was so little I could do to help people, who waited patiently to see me.
I wanted to believe that they had called me in order to make me promise to attend more regularly in future. I thought that I must win them back for if I lost Marshfield I would have lost everything -no seat, no right of entry to the House of Commons.
Entering the room I met Jimmy March, the Party secretary. It seemed to me that he was avoiding me. I felt that he was rather indifferent to me. I understood that something was wrong and tried to promise to be along more regularly on Fridays in future. I drew from my experience that I should do my useless work and make image that I am helping people.

Ddemys recalled that today she was supposed to have an anniversary.
Краткий пересказ всей повести.
Повествование в этой сказочной повести начинается с того, что семейство Бэнкс, собравшись утром за чаем, обсуждает вопрос о поисках новой няни. В доме уже побывало множество нянь, но ни одна из них не смогла ужиться с детьми – Джейн, Майклом и близнецами. И тут вдруг на пороге дома появляется решительная молодая особа, которая представляется Мэри Поппинс и заявляет, что она – их новая няня. Откуда взялась Мэри Поппинс перед дверью дома Бэнксов – неизвестно, возникает такое чувство, что она появилась здесь прямо из воздуха или спустилась с неба на большом зонтике-трости, который она держит в руках.
Мэри Поппинс не похожа на всех прочих нянь. Она – Мисс Совершенство, так как не имеет совершенно никаких недостатков (разве что очень любит смотреть на свое отражение в витринах магазинов – но разве это недостаток для очаровательной женщины?) Она строга и требовательна, но вместе с тем прекрасно понимает детей. Она рассказывает им чудесные сказки и поит микстурой, которая прямо у нее в ложке превращается в мороженое, она может въезжать по лестничным перилам вверх и расстегивать крючки и пуговицы на детской одежде с помощью взгляда.
Кроме того, Мэри понимает не только детей, но и животных, и даже статуй – благодаря ей дети знакомятся с Мальчиком с дельфином в городском парке и узнают подробности о жизни одной бродячей собаки и собаки одной из их соседок. А еще Мэри обращает особое внимание на манеры – у нее самой манеры просто превосходны. А кроме зонтика, она приносит в дом с собой большую ковровую сумку, из которой достает самые разные вещи, причем, иногда такие, которые вряд ли поместятся в обычную сумку.
Одним словом, Мэри Поппинс – очень необычная няня, второй такой просто не существует. Она волшебница, но волшебница, которая целиком сосредоточена на детских проблемах, и появляется всегда там, где требуется помощь детям. На вопрос Джейн и Майкла о том, как долго Мэри пробудет у них, она отвечает, что все зависит от ветра – ведь с помощью ветра и своего зонтика она и перемещается от одних своих воспитанников к другим. Мэри Поппинс совершает для детей немало чудес – но все эти чудеса интересны только самим детям, в мире взрослых они не имеют никакой ценности. Мэри рассказывает и показывает детям, что творится в зоопарке ночью, а также рассказывает о доме, в котором обитают дети, нарисованные на блюде из фарфора.
А еще дети узнают от нее, откуда на небе появляются звезды – их туда относит именно Мэри Поппинс, и на самом деле это звезды из фольги, которые Мэри берет у Майкла и Джейн и приклеивает на небо. Сейчас дети оказываются именно в том мире, о котором мечтали – мире, наполненном чудесами. Только их беспокоит один вопрос: не забудут ли они обо всем этом, когда станут взрослыми - ведь взрослые часто не помнят даже самые яркие впечатления из своего детства. Но все же они верят, что такую няню, как Мэри Поппинс, они не смогут забыть никогда.

Oliver is then sold. Suffering terrible cruelty, he runs away and joins a young criminal who teaches him how to steal wallets. The general theme of the novel is that of selfishness and dishonesty as most people take advantage of Oliver. Few people show him love and kindness.

He came into the room to shut the windows while we were still in bed and Isaw he looked ill. He was shivering, his face was white, and he walkedslowly as though it ached to move.Whats the matter, Chats?Ive got a headache.You better go back to bed.No, Im all right.You go to bed. Ill see you when Im dressed.But when I came downstairs he was dressed, sitting by the fire, looking avery sick and miserable boy of nine years. When I put my hand on hisforehead I knew he had a fever.You go up to bed, I said, youre sick.Im all right, he said. When the doctor came he took the boys temperature.What is it? I asked him.One hundred and two.Downstairs, the doctor left three different medicines in different coloredcapsules with instructions for giving them. One was to bring down the fever, another a purgative, the third to overcome an acid condition. The germs ofinfluenza can only exist in an acid condition, he explained. He seemed toknow all about influenza and said there was nothing to worry about if thefever did not go above one hundred and four degrees. This was a lightepidemic of flu and there was no danger if you avoided pneumonia. Back in the room I wrote the boys temperature down and made a note ofthe time to give the various capsules.Do you want me to read to you?All right. If you want to, said the boy. His face was very white and therewere dark areas under his eyes. He lay still in bed and seemed verydetached from what was going on. I read aloud from Howard Pyles Book of Pirates; but I could see he was notfollowing what I was reading.How do you feel, Schatz? I asked him.Just the same, so far, he said. I sat at the foot of the bed and read to myself while I waited for it to be timeto give another capsule. It would have been natural for him to go to sleep, but when I looked up he was looking at the foot of the bed, looking verystrangely.Why dont you try to go to sleep? Ill wake you up for the medicine.Id rather stay awake.After a while he said to me, You dont have to stay here with me, Papa, if itbothers you.It doesnt bother me.No, I mean you dont have to stay if its going to bother you.I thought perhaps he was a little light-headed and after giving him theprescribed capsule at eleven oclock I went out for a while. It was a bright, cold day, the ground covered with a sleet that had frozen sothat it seemed as if all the bare trees, the bushes, the cut brush and all thegrass and the bare ground had been varnished with ice. I took the youngIrish setter for a little walk up the road and along a frozen creek, but it wasdifficult to stand or walk on the glassy surface and the red dog slipped andslithered and fell twice, hard, once dropping my gun and having it slide overthe ice. We flushed a covey of quail under a high clay bank with overhanging brushand killed two as they went out of sight over the top of the bank. Some ofthe covey 55 lit the trees, but most of them scattered into brush piles and it wasnecessary to jump on the ice-coated mounds of brush several times beforethey would flush. Coming out while you were poised unsteadily on the icy, springy brush they made difficult shooting and killed two, missed five, andstarted back pleased to have found a covey close to the house and happythere were so many left to find on another day. At the house they said the boy had refused to let anyone come into theroom.You cant come in, he said. You mustnt get what I have.I went up to him and found him in exactly the position I had left him, white65faced, but with the tops of his cheeks flushed by the fever, staring still, ashe had stared, at the foot of the bed. I took his temperature.What is it?Something like a hundred, I said. It was one hundred and two and fourtenth.It was a hundred and two, he said.Who said so?The doctor.Your temperature isНа голосовании
