AFTER PHASE 3


IN PHASE 3, IT WAS GREAT TO TRAVEL TO HUESCA OR TERUEL. HOWEVER,
WE ALL WANT TO GET GOING INTO THE NEW NORMALITY AFTER PHASE 3.

WE WILL BE ABLE TO VISIT OUR FAMILIES IN OTHER CITIES .... NOT ONLY IN ARAGON.
LIKE

THIS YEAR, I IMAGINE HOPLIDAYS WILL BE DIFFERENT. WE WILL GO TO THE COUNTRY LIKE IN THE 60s WITH OUR PICNIC BASKET AND WE WILL VISIT OUR
SPANISH BEACHES, WHICH ARE MARVELLOUS, RATHER THAN TRAVELLING
ABROAD, AS WE USED TO DO IN THE PAST.

COMPETITION SPIRIT

COMPETITION SPIRIT ( BY J.M.J.)


Competition spirit has been the driving force behind many great achievement
throughout history. Furthermore, it is all around us, whether it is in politics
or business, or between classmates or siblings.

My personal view is that competition is needed to achieve success.
It encourages hard work, promotes interaction and boosts the economy.
Moreover, competition is a driving motivator which make us work hard.
It adds pressure that keeps us focused on our goals. In addition to that,
competition gives us the impetus to overcome obstacles and persevere.
We are less  inclined to give up if we know we will lose out to a rival.
In addition to that, competition encourages interaction owing to the fact it
brings people together, especially for sporting events such as the Olympic Games.
What I Iike best is that the interaction and support prompted by rivalry contributes
to success.

Briefly we can say that, if there is no rivalry in the world no one would
succeed in their life and everybody  would be at a same level.
In my opinion, competition is an integral part of achieving success.
Nevertheless, we should take care SO that competitive nature will not
destroy our daily life.

A WONDERFUL TRIP !!!!


A WONDERFUL TRIP ( by FIDALGO from CIT 2)

In 2012 I went to Norway for summer holidays. I was  there with my family and Andrea
Cremallet family. We were there for fifteen days in two camp sites. In each camp, we rented
a Bungalow to stay for the night-

Firstly,  wew visited Bergen,  aN increíble and beautIFUL city situated in the south of Norway,
 we tried the famous Norwich salmón and we had  the opPortunity TO fish It. We were also in 
a viking village situated at the end of a fiord wHich you can only arrive on boat. moreover, we tried some
tradiTional food of the viking culture. We also went on a boat wHich left us in an island whose 
population is under one hundred. According to the traditional Norwich culture of a festivity we ate
some products made with whale meat.

 In addition I have to say that I loved It. I loved that trip and I will remember It forever.
 I am sure I 'll get back and i will discover  more extraordinary things,  traditions and places
 from that incredible couNtry.

ANY HOLIDAYS AFTER THE PANDEMIC??

                                       WHAT DO YOU WANT TO DO?

Soon we'll all be thinking about summer holiday plans. However, what can we really do after the pandemic? Let me tell you about how everything has changed.

At weekends, I used to spend a lot of time with my friends. When we were very happy, we used to hang out in the shopping centre and we used to go to the cinema or the theatre too. I remenber the last thriller film that I saw, 'Knives Out' with the brilliant performance of Daniel Craig and Cristofer Plumer. They were gorgeous!  Moreover, every Saturday, in the morning,  my husband and I used  go for long bike rides and later we watched  our son's basketball game. Nowadays, our lives are quiet and some boring, that is the reason why I've planned some things for us to do. For example, cooking a special food, rereading old books, playing the guitar,watering plants, sunbathe on the balcony, doing yoga....and breathe deeply so you don't go crazy!

If we washed our hands frequently, put on a mask and didn't stand close to other people maybe we would feel safe.....However, a few people feel quietly. One of the first things we'll do when people don't die, it could be go out from home, far away and so have entertainment with anyting, anywhere.

GENDER INEQUALITY


GENDER INEQUALITY

Gender inequality refers to unfair rights between male and female based on different gender roles which lead to unequal treatment in life. In addtion to that, it is obvious ly an urgent problem in the world.

I sincerely believe that nowadays, workplace discrimination is a top problem faced by many women even in such developed countries. Not only, companies tend to pay women less, but also a lot of organizations refuse to hire pregnant women, not giving them a chance for even an interview. Listed here are some examples of gender inequality found in the daily lives of women across the globe such as: illiteracy, economic independence, female genital mutilation, human trafficking, low representation in governments, violence against women, sexual assault and rape. However, despite the fact that its volume is decreasing, it still exists and makes a lot of people suffer its consequences every day. Moreover, there are many reasons leading to gender discrimination which cannot be solved easily. Nevertheless, with education (which is the key to the growth of humankind) and progressive thoughts of people, there are also reasons to rely on  the future of gender inequality being stopped.

Finally, if I were a politician I would not only give women the same rights and opportunities owing of the fact that 'equal rights movement' is not enough.  Inequality exists in our minds and in our prejudices. In other words, it remains a lot to be solved. Hopefully, in a non distant future,I would like all people could live in fairness no matter what gender they are.
