The Maasai and the lions | LearnEnglishTeens For thousands of years the Maasai people in Kenya had no doubts about their relationship with the lions who shared the land with them. They were enemies. The lions wanted to kill the tribe’s livestock and the Maasai had to protect the animals. But now things have changed and the Maasai are part of a new East African scheme to protect lions, called the Lion Guardians. The Lion Guardians monitor the lions and other carnivores and inform cattle herders when to avoid the areas where there are lions. If anyone is about to carry out a lion hunt, the Lion Guardians try and persuade them not to. One such Lion Guardian is Olubi Lairumbe. Another Guardian, Mingati Makarot, is very good at tracking lions using his traditional skills and has a great knowledge of the area that acts as a refuge to many wildlife species. In the past, a moran (a Maasai warrior) received a lion name after spearing a lion. Now, this naming tradition is changing.

Are young people today worse than ever? ‘We live in a decaying age. Young people no longer respect their parents. They are rude and impatient. They frequently inhabit taverns and have no self-control.’ Does this sound familiar? It seems that people manage to find a way to complain about the youth today from every possible angle. However, have there ever been any ‘good old days’ when it comes to young people? I believe that there is probably some truth to the idea that young people are more impatient than they once were. Nevertheless, people may still argue that young people are more arrogant and reckless than they once were. Life in London | LearnEnglishTeens At the moment, I'm doing an internship in London. It's my first experience of living in the capital city of the UK - and in a busy, tourist-filled metropolis it's easy to feel like a small fish in a very big pond. I take the tube to work; the London Underground is a great transport network and you can get across London much quicker than if you took a bus, or, in some cases, walked. However, first thing in the morning it's often very crowded on the tube. There's no air conditioning on the trains, and when there are a lot of people on board it can feel very claustrophobic. Occasionally there are delays which can be frustrating when you need to get to work! As a capital city, London has loads of great attractions. One thing I love about London is the free newspapers and magazines. As much as I'm enjoying living in London temporarily, it'll be nice to escape the big smoke (a slang term for London, due to the amount of pollution) and return home!

Friends Reunited! Judge Meets Old Pal In Dock "This was the nicest kid in middle school," the judge said. A burglary suspect broke down in tears in the dock when the judge recognised him as a former schoolmate and said he had been the "best kid" in school. Arthur Booth appeared in front of judge Mindy Glazer at Miami-Dade bond court charged with burglary. Booth, 49, was arrested on Monday after being spotted driving a car that matched the description of one allegedly involved in a robbery and failing to stop after a police officer signalled him to. A police chase followed, resulting in two accidents before he crashed the car. He fled on foot but was eventually caught and charged with various offences. When he was taken into court, the judge looked at him for a moment or two and then asked: "Did you go to Nautilus?" "I'm sorry to see you here," replied Judge Glazer. Vocabulary

Luca's new book about his mom, Audrey at Home, features her favourite recipes, a collection of never-before-seen family photos, and a private side that few ever saw. As he writes in his book's introduction, "Mum was adorable, of course, but I did not find her the least bit exciting."

Thief Returns Stones After 20 Years Of Bad Luck Ancient sling stones taken two decades ago have been returned to a museum, with a note urging others not to steal antiquities.

They were returned in a bag to the Museum of Islamic and Near Eastern Cultures in Israel's southern city of Beersheba, along with a note from the thief. The note, in Hebrew, read: "These are two Roman ballista balls from Gamla, from a residential quarter at the foot of the summit. "I stole them in July 1995, and since then they have brought me nothing but trouble. The thief did not elaborate on the nature of his or her bad luck. 1. ten years 3. very old 7. strongly advise Key:

Chain Reaction | LearnEnglishTeens by Louise Cooper Everyone was enjoying the cruise. The weather was warm and sunny, the sea was calm, and the passengers hadn't complained about anything, which was unusual. Even the chief engineer wasn't bad-tempered, which was very unusual. Until, one morning, the ship suddenly stopped. 'What's going on?' 'Don't know, sir!' The chief engineer hastily shut down the engines (which did make him bad-tempered), and the trouble was investigated. 'What idiot left a thundering great chain drifting around in the sea?' 'Don't know, sir,' the third mate said again, gloomily. The captain sighed and looked around. They set to work, and by lunchtime they had untangled the propeller. 'Haul it in,' he ordered the second mate (the third mate was off duty by now). The crew started to heave the chain aboard. 'I think we're nearly there, sir!' The captain did not reply. A plug? He looked at the islands again. 'Oops…' said the captain. This story was selected as part of the BritLit project.
