Back to the future and a hoverboard

In this comment I am going to write about the film “Back to the future” and the hoverboard. Some years ago, I watched this film and also the sequels and I really like them, because it deals with the human dream travelling in time and it is very funny. This new board can be a very important invention and probably will change our way of travelling.

First of all, “Back to the future” is a 1985 American science-fiction adventure comedy film directed by Robert Zemeckis, written by Zemeckis and Bob Gale, produced by Gale and Neil Canton, and starring Michael J. Fox, Christopher Lloyd, Lea Thompson, Crispin Gloverand Thomas F. Wilson. In the film, teenager Marty McFly is sent back in time to 1955, where he meets his parents when they were at the high school, but unfortunately his mother falls in love with him. Marty  must sort out the problem, because if he doesn't, he will never exist. Fortunately, there is a crazy scientist Dr. Emmett 'Doc' Brown, who has 
created the time machine and will help him to return to his time.

A hoverboard is a levitating board used for personal transportation in the films Back to the Future Part II and Back to the Future Part III. A hoverboard is a skateboard without wheels. This type of skateboards is still being investigated, because they aren’t good enough.

All in all, I think “Back to the future” and all his sequels were very good films, but I have heard that  these films are going to be remade and modernized, but I am not sure at all. I hope one day we will go to school, to our job, to our house… on a hoverboard, because I think it would be faster and comfortable.

An unsatisfied customer

One week ago, I bought a laptop AT Dynos. However, when I switched it on, it didn’t work. So I decided to go back to the shop and ask them for solutions.

When I went there, I told the shop assistant “Hello, Sir, two days ago I bought a laptop, here is the receipt, but when I tried to turn it on IT didn’t work so I want to have my money back”. He replied “I am sorry, Sir, but I cannot give your money back this laptop hasn’t got a guarantee”. I told him angrily “That is impossible, because you told me that it had it! I want to talk with the manager”.

The manager was listening to the conversation and decided to talk with me. He said that his shop couldn’t pay back the money. So I told him if he could repair the laptop. He finally agreed and told me to bring it the following day.

Anyway, next time I will always check that any item I want to purchase has a guarantee and that it is valid for at least two years. Bargains can cost you a fortune!!

My summer experiences

I am going to talk about my summer experiences and about my goals for this year. This summer I  have been to Frace, but I have spent most of my holidays in the Alpujarras. This year is going to be difficult, because I begin Bachillerato

This summer I have been to France and I have visited the “Dune de Pilat”, the “Mont Saint-Michel” and Rouen. In this last place I have stayed for a week and I have had classes of French. Then I returned to Spain, but I spent some days in the north. There, I visited Oviedo, León and Zamora. When I arrived home, I went to “Las Alpujarras” and I spent there a couple of weeks. In Sierra Nevada, I have done some trekking and I have played tennis. I have gone to the Mulhacén and to the Seven Lagoons.

My resolutions for this year are to have good marks and obtain the B2 in English and the B1 in French. It is clear that this year is very important, because the marks I will obtain this year will affect the “Selectividad”. I also know that there is a big step between the ESO and Bachillerato, but I have to do as much as possible. 

All in all, I think that I have visited many wonderful places this summer, but I would have liked to visit Paris once again. I also think that I will have to study a lot this year and that it’s going to be difficult.

Moses Eugene Malone

Today I am going to write about a very important person who died recently. This man is Moses Eugene Malone, his nickname was Big Mo. He was born on 23rd March in 1955 and he died on 13th September in 2015 . He was an American basketball player who played in both the American Basketball Association (ABA) and the National Basketball Association (NBA) from 1974 to 1995. He has won many and many awards, some of them are NBA All-Defensive First Team (1983) NBA All-Defensive Second Team (1979), ABA All-Rookie Team (1975)… 

Nowadays we have also a lot of good basketball players, such as Pau Gasol, Marc Gasol, Rudy Fernandez, Felipe Reyes… They are going to play the final of Europe and I hope they will win this competition.

What can we tell people who want to hurt peaceful people?

In my opinion, the vast majority of the people don’t want to live with war or terrorism. I don’t know why we kill each other, we are ALL HUMANS!!! In think that everybody should do whatever they like as long as they don't affect other people.

There aren’t many solutions to solve this problem, but one of the most important is education, because if they know what it is good and what it is bad, they would know what they should do.The problem is that their families may not teach them properly

I hope that this type of problem will disappear one day and no one kill each other for religion.  I would also like not be afraid if I had to go somewhere.

The terrorist attack in France

Last 13th Friday of November, France suffered a terrible terrorist attack. The attack was divided in three parts. Firstly, they attacked in the surrounding area of the stadium, where France was playing a match. A match, which the President of France, François Holland, was watching. However, they couldn’t enter and they exploded themselves in front of it. Hopefully, the President could escape finally.

Secondly, they killed people from restaurants, bars, café  that were near the stadium . Fear was extending all over Paris.

Finally, they made their last and biggest attack at Bataclan theatre, where there was a rock concert going on. They abducted and killed many people there. 

All in all, they killed 130 people and extended fear all over France and Paris. I hope that  there aren't any more terrorist attacks either in France, in Syria or in any other part of the world.

Robin Hood and James Bond

Robin Hood was an English archer in the Middle Ages who stole the money from the rich people and gave it to the poor. He was a very kind man and he also faced the king and the sheriff from Nottingham. This legend was used in many films and books like Robin Hood Outlawed, In the days of Robin Hood.

James Bond, whose nickname is agent 007, is an English secret agent who is the best in his job. He kills everybody who he is told to. He appears with a different gorgeous lady in every film. He always lives on the edge.

All in all, both of them lived in England and they fought for the justice and equality of everybody. I think nowadays we need someone like them to chase the corruption, the thieves and the injustice.

Does meat produce cancer?

I didn’t believe that we could save 45,000 lives eating less meat. In my opinion this piece of information is shocking. From my point of view there are two great causes: cancer and cholesterol.

The cancer is a big problem, because we haven’t investigated enough and it can’t be stopped when it began. However, I think that the probability of taken a cancer by eating meat is very very low.

The cholesterol is the real big problem, because it affects our circulatory system and finally produces the death. This issue can be solved by doing more exercise and eating less unhealthy food. 

All in all, I think that there are many other things we should be aware of pollution, endangered animals… However, we should take care of ourselves.

My favourite song from John Lennon is “Yesterday” and from the Beatles is “Yellow Submarine”.
