Language level: Intermediate (B1) – Upper Intermediate (B2) Learner type: Teens and adults Powerful films from 5 young people: What health inequality looks like in the US By Michael Painter. For some of us, it’s easy to choose to be healthy. We can’t control whether disease or accidents strike, but we can decide where we live and what we eat, as well as if, when and how much we’ll exercise. Some of us live in a culture of health — a time and place where, for the most part, we have the real hope and opportunity to live a healthy life.

Beloved teen Sam Berns dies at 17 after suffering from rare disease Saturday night could have been a moment for Sam Berns to celebrate -- standing in the middle of Gillette Stadium, flanked by some of his beloved New England Patriots, and no doubt cheered heartily by the nearly 70,000 fans surrounding him. But it wasn't to be. Instead of having Berns as an honorary captain in their NFL playoff with the Indianapolis Colts, the Patriots held a moment of silence for the young man who inspired them and many others as he lived with progeria, which causes premature, accelerated aging.

Woman Undergoes Bizarre Body Changes In Short Film Barbara is a passionate writer and animal lover who has been professionally blogging for over 10 years and counting. While Anna is preparing for a first date with Henry, a man she has secretly loved for years, everything goes wrong until she discovers the impossible — she’s suddenly able to sculpt her appearance like clay to any shape she desires. Written and directed by Sandy Widyanata,”Plastic” is a popular short film that was released in 2008. It delves into the issue of women’s body image issues and the power of self acceptance. Watching Anna manipulate her face and body in her bathroom — pulling at her nose until it reaches the perfect point, stretching her neck like a giraffe until it’s long and thin — is bizarre, comical and even creepy at times.
