Best free and legal music download sites The Internet has made it easy to get a free download of just about any song you want. The problem, however, is that free music isn’t always legal music. If you’re the honest type and you like to pay for your tunes and support the artists, labels, and retailers who distribute them, then illegal downloading simply isn’t an option. Before we get started, however, it should be noted that there are dozens of ways to listen to music freely and legally without downloading it onto a device. Furthermore, most free and legal music you come across isn’t likely to be from familiar mainstream artists — if you’re looking for legal music downloads, don’t expect to get all the hottest tracks from your favorite bands. So, if you absolutely must download your music, you want to do so without paying a dime or breaking any laws, and you don’t mind if a lot of popular favorites are missing, read on.

Video Lesson: Mr. Bean Follow me on twitter This is a video lesson based around the video “Mr. Bean packs his suitcase” thanks to British Council for bringing it to my attention in their lesson plan on making predictions but I’ve adapted it for use in different ways with different levels. Kids and lower levels The aim of this lesson plan is to practice holiday vocabulary (clothes and items that go in a suitcase) and some basic grammar structure. Project a picture of a suitcase on to the board (or draw one) and ask “What do you put in your suitcase when you go on holiday?” toothbrushtoothpasteswimming shorts/trunkstowelunderpantscan of baked beanscloth/flannelsoapbooksuitcasetrousersshortsshoesteddy bearscissors You could also use this quizlet set to go over clothes vocabulary. If children are old enough to write, put them in pairs and hand out post-it-notes and a pencil to each pair. Mr. in his suitcase. Then stick all the post-its on the board and show the video.

Mr. Beat's Social Studies Channel Did Nader play the role of spoiler? In my first video collaboration with my friend Will from Political Junkie, I provide evidence why Ralph Nader absolutely did not spoil the presidential election of 2000. If anyone did, it's probably George W. Bush. Please check out Will's counter argument video here: subscribe to his wonderful channel: Sources: Ok, I commonly hear the myth that Ralph Nader, the legendary consumer protection activist, spoiled the election of 2000 by “stealing” votes that would have gone to Al Gore, the Democratic nominee. It’s easy to see why they did.
