PARLIAMENT

 

Great Britain is a monarchy. But the power of the Queen (or King) is limited by Parliament.

Parliament consists of the House of Commons and the House of Lords. Members are elected only to the House of Commons. The House of Lords is hereditory. Members of one House may not enter the other. The exception is the day of the State Opening of Parliament.

In the House of Lords before the Throne there is the Woolsack upon which the Lord Chancellor presides over the lords.

The Speaker presides over the members of the House of Commons.

The Party which obtained the majority of seats in the House is called the Government and the others the Opposition. The Prime Minister is responsible for the policy conducted by Parliament. Ministry is formed from the party in power.

The House of Lords has 850 members. The House of Commons has 630 members who are elected. The electing is held every 5 years. At present there are the following political parties: the Conservatives, the Labour Party and the Liberals.

When Parliament sits, a flag (Union Jack) flies over Victoria Tower by day and a light in the Clock Tower burns above the Big Ben—by night.

AMERICAN ENGLISH

Britain and America were once described as nations divided by a common language. Just what is the difference between the English spoken in Britain and America?

The first English settlers to reach America arrived in Virginia in 1607 and in Massachusetts in 1620. They all spoke English of the early seventeenth century — the language of Shakespeare and Milton. Most of them came originally from the south and south-east of England. Although some of them had spent some years of exile in Holland they spoke with the accents of the southern part of their home country. To a large extent they kept that form of speech, but they soon learned to give old words new uses. They also took words from the local Indian languages for plants and animals that were new to them.

Until the Declaration of Independence in 1776 over two-thirds of the settlers in what later became the U.S. came from England. After that date many other people came to make a new life for
themselves in the New World. These included Irish, French, Germans, Dutch, Italians, Slavs, and Scandinavians. All these people gave new words to the language of North America. The Negroes who had been taken from Africa as slaves to work on the rice and cotton plantations added words and structures from their own native languages. Some people today think that the very American expression O.K. comes from a similar expression which was brought to America by the Negroes.

Although all these people contributed in various ways to the language which was to become American English, there is one man who can be singled out as the person who did most to give American English an identity of its own. He was Noah Webster (1758—1843). He is largely responsible for the differences which exist today between British and American spelling.

US SYSTEM OF GOVERNMENT

 

The United States is a federal union of 50 states plus one independent district — the District of Columbia. Forty-nine states, including Alaska, form the continental United States. The 50th state is separated from the continental part. It is the state of Hawaii — a group of islands situated in the mid Pacific Ocean.

Washington, D. C. is the seat of the Federal Government of the United States. The Federal Government is made up of three branches — the Executive, the Legislative and the Judicial Branches.

The function of the Executive Branch is to carry out the laws of the nation. It consists of the President, Vice-President and the President’s Cabinet. The members of the Cabinet are chosen by the President.

The Legislative Branch, Congress, is where the laws are made and adopted. Congress is made up of two houses: the Senate and the House of Representatives. There are 100 Senators elected, two from each of the 50 states, regardless of their population. The members of the House of Representatives are elected for only 2 years and their number in the Congress depends upon the state’s population.

The Judicial Branch is headed by the Supreme Court which settles any disputes involving the national government or disputes between two or more states.

PHILADELPHIA — HISTORICAL CITY OF INDEPENDENCE

Philadelphia, which was founded in 1682 by William Penn, a prominent statesman, was a large city in Colonial America. Even now some parts of the old city remind one of the past. Visitors can walk the old streets, see the old houses and public buildings.

Here in 1774 the first Congress of delegates from all the colonies was held. Among the delegates were men of great fame, such as George Washington and John Adams, the first and second Presidents of the USA. The main decision of the first Continental Congress was to unite the efforts of all the colonies against Great Britain.

The second Continental Congress, held in Philadelphia a year later, decided to organize an army to defend the colonies. George Washington was chosen commander-in-chief and the War for
Independence began. The Congress named a committee of five to draw up the Declaration of Independence. The work was actually done by Thomas Jefferson, then 33 years old. On July 4, 1776 the Congress adopted the Declaration of Independence. Celebration of the fourth of July as Independence Day began the next year.

Philadelphia was the city where the US Constitution was adopted in 1788—1789. In 1790 the first Congress met in Philadelphia and decided that Philadelphia would be the capital of the USA while the federal capital in Washington, D. C. was being built. It remained the capital for the next 10 years.

TV AND CHILDREN

Only in recent years scientists and doctors began serious study of the influence of television on children and young people.

Some psychologists say that after parents, television has the greatest influence on children today.

Of course, watching TV has its good and bad sides. From TV children get information about the world, they learn new words and begin to use them in their speech.

But TV also influences the development of a child in a negative way. When children spend all day in front of TV sets they cannot usually find time to read, to play games in the yard, to talk to their parents and friends.

Some teachers say that children who watch TV every day talk too much at school at the lessons. They cannot talk at home while watching TV and so they begin to talk at school.

TV influences the creative abilities of pupils. In America there was such an experiment. 250 good pupils could watch TV for many hours every day. After three weeks the pupils were tested.
The results were unusually low.

Pupils who watch TV very much cannot understand an easy story without pictures, tables or illustrations.

Television usually makes children passive. When a child watches TV he lives the lives of TV heroes, he travels with them, does every thing with them. But he is not doing anything, he is just sitting in an armchair and watching TV.

When a child watches TV, everything seems very easy to him. And real life begins to seem easy. He cannot work hard, because watching TV does not need hard work. There is also serious concern about the negative effect of some TV shows in which scenes of violence and crime are predominant.

RUSSIAN COINS

In the past, scientists thought that for many centuries only leather and furs were used in ancient Russia as money. But now it is known that silver money was also used.

In the XII—XIV centuries almost all the coins disappeared in Russia. It happened because Russia was at war with the German Knights and the Mongol-Tartars at the same time. After the war the Russians had to fight with the Mongol-Tartars. So normal trade and economic ties with both the West and the East were broken. People began to hide money not to pay it to the Mongol-Tartars, that’s why archaeologists to this day find a lot of coins from that period.

In the XIV century some Russian principalities began to make their own silver coins. The coins weighed as much as one rouble. In ancient Russia the word «rouble» meant a silver piece which
weighed 200 grammes. The coins were called denga. Now we use this word as dengi and it means «money». It was difficult to use them in the country as there were more than 25 cities which made money and coins were different in different cities.
In 1534 a single monetary system was introduced in Russian state. It showed that the long process of unification of the country was over. A new coin — a silver copeck — was made. In the 17th century Peter the Great began to rule the country and made many changes in Russia, and one of them was a new monetary system. A silver rouble became the main coin, there were 10 copecks and 5 copecks.

In 1769 the first Russian paper money appeared. When World War I began all gold and silver coins disappeared and only paper money was used at that time.

THE POWER OF IMAGINATION

Mr. Brown got to a hotel late in the evening after a long journey. He asked the desk-clerk whether there were any vacant rooms in the hotel. At that moment another traveller came to the hotel and asked the desk-clerk for a room too.

The only vacant room was a double one. «Do you mind spending the night in that room together?» the desk-clerk asked. At first the travellers didn’t like the idea, but just then it began raining hard and they were too tired to go to another hotel, so they changed their minds. Their things were carried in and soon the two men went to sleep.

Suddenly a loud voice woke Mr. Brown up. It was quite dark. «What’s the matter?» Mr. Brown asked in surprise. In a weak voice the second traveller answered: «I’m sorry, but I had to wake you up. I’ve got a terrible headache. If you don’t want me to die, open the window quickly.»

Mr. Brown jumped out of bed and began looking for matches, but he couldn’t find them in the dark, and the sick man went on: «Air, air, I want fresh air. I’m dying.»

Mr. Brown still couldn’t find the matches, so he tried to find the window. It took him some time, and at last he thought he had found it. But he couldn’t open it. As the voice of the traveller became weaker and weaker, Mr. Brown took a chair and broke the window with it. The sick man immediately stopped moaning and said he felt much better. Then the two of them slept peacefully until morning.

When they woke up next morning they were surprised to see that the only window in the room was closed but the large looking-glass was broken to pieces.

ST. VALENTINE’S DAY

 

St. Valentine’s Day is celebrated on the 14th of February.

It’s great fun to send or receive a Valentine card, but most people have no idea who St. Valentine was. Not everybody knows why unsigned greetings of love are sent on this feast day. It
seems likely that he was Valentinus, a priest who was put to death by the Emperor Claudius for being a Christian. The Church probably chose 14th February as his feast day in the hope of rollicking the Roman spring festival, when young men and girls celebrated because spring was coming.

About mid-February the woods begin to echo with birdsongs again after the silent days of winter. Skylarks are heard singing high above meadowland. So this outburst of birdsong in early
spring was also said to be connected with St. Valentine. People imagine that on this feast day for exchanging loving greetings, birds too chose their mates before nest-building.

Shops sold ready-made Valentines, brightly coloured, lace-edged and boxed. Young people might even buy and send more than one, just for fun of it.

Nowadays about a million cards are sent by post in the United Kingdom every St. Valentine’s Day.

Великобритания

Объединенное королевство Великобритании и Северной Ирландии расположено на Британских островах. Они лежат на севере Европы и отделены от континента узким проливом. Он называется Английским каналом. На британский климат оказывают влияние моря и океаны. Зимой бывает слишком холодно, но летом никогда не бывает слишком жарко.

Объединенное королевство состоит из 4 частей – Англии, Уэльса, Шотландии и Северной Ирландии. У каждой части своя столица. Столица Англии Лондон, Шотландии – Эдинбург, Уэльса – Кардиф, а главный город Северной Ирландии –Белфаст.

Столица Великобритании – Лондон, это культурный центр страны, и он расположен на берегах Темзы. В нем много достопримечательностей, которые можно посетить – Биг Бен, Тауэрский мост через реку Темзу, Интернациональный аэропорт Хитроу, Вестминстерское Аббатство, Национальная Галерея Искусства и много других.

В Британии живет около 64 миллионов людей, большинство из них англичане, Ирландцы и шотландцы. У всех них особые традиции для праздников, они готовят особую еду для фестивалей. Все члены семьи принимают участие в этих событиях. Люди в Британии вежливы и добры.

Многие известные люди родились в Британии. Один из них Уильям Шекспир, который написал трагедии “Ромео и Джульетта”, “Гамлет”, “Макбет” и много других пьес. Уильям Шекспир Родился в 1564 году и жил в Страдфорде на Эйвоне с женой и детьми. Шекспир умер в 1616 году.

Великобритания считается государством будущего. Я мечтаю о том, чтобы посетить Лондон и полюбоваться сами прекрасными видами столицы Объединенного Королевства и надеюсь, что эта мечта когда-нибудь сбудется.
