Rund zweieinhalb Stunden war seine Kapsel von einem riesigen Helium-Ballon in die Höhe gezogen worden, bevor sie schließlich die Stratosphäre erreichte. Der Weg nach unten ging dann etwas schneller vonstatten: Im freien Fall erreichte Felix Baumgartner eine Geschwindigkeit von 1342,8 Stundenkilometern – die höchste Geschwindigkeit, mit der sich jemals ein Mensch ohne technische Hilfsmittel fortbewegt hat.

Look Up This EFL lesson is designed around a short film and poem by Gary Turk and the theme of isolation caused by the use of new technology. Students watch a short film with no sound and speculate about the story it tells, read a poem and discuss digital technology, social media and isolation.

All at C | Video Lesson Plans for Teachers How to succeed when you have no special skills 2.7k shares Share on Facebook Share on Twitter We’re forever being sold a lie on how to prosper in life: discover what you’re best at, work hard at it, swim in an ocean of riches and happiness. That works brilliantly if you were born the best at something, but for everyone else, it’s kinda soul-crushing. The good news is, nearly everybody is like this, and that includes ultra-successful megastars. Bill Gates is not the best programmer in the world, nor is he the world’s greatest speaker, salesperson, visionary or accountant. Will Smith doesn’t claim to be the world’s greatest actor or musician. Most such people would have made a terrible mistake had they solely focussed on the one skill they were ‘best’ at. Even when your skills are mediocre, an astute combination of mediocrity can turn you into something priceless. Say you’re a passable tennis player. This works for any profession. Individual skills are common. Keep reading Comments

Webbresurs från vårt grannland - London Walk - Språkbloggen Finska Utbildningsstyrelsen är en myndighet som ungefär motsvarar Skolverket (även om jag inte ska svära på de exakta detaljerna rent politiskt). De har också en hel del lärresurser på sin hemsida, och där har jag hittat en guldklimp, via ett tips på Facebook. Mina 9or ska i engelskan arbeta med olika ämnesområden kopplade till Great Britain och vi inleder med att fokusera på London. För att få en bild av sammanhanget tittade vi först på en film från med den självförklarande titeln GREAT BRITAIN, artikel V4258. Under tiden som vi tittade fick eleverna svara på frågor om filmens innehåll genom webbtjänsten Socrative. Eleverna går in på sidan, skriver in klassrumskoden som jag ger dem, kopplat till mitt konto, och jag startar quizet. Efter introduktionen fick eleverna ge sig ut för att själva upptäcka London.

Older, wiser, bit of money saved, experienced with a stable job? The most important qualities of a good entrepreneur are energy and determination. Enough preamble.
