Choosing an Occupation

   There are many interesting and useful professions, and it is really not an easy task to choose the right one.
   I began to think about my future profession at the age of 15. My favourite subjects at school were mathematics and English. My teachers were well-educated people with deep knowledge of the subjects. They encouraged me in my desire to become an economist. Now I know well what I'm going to do after leaving school. I didn't make a blind choice. It was not a sudden flash either.
   I opted for a career in business economics. I came to this decision little by little. It was my father who aroused my interest in that field. You see, he is a chief economist at a large plant and I often saw him work at home and discuss business matters with his colleagues.
   To become a good specialist in economic matters and business one must know many sciences, such as business economics, finance and credits, statistics, history of economic theory and philosophy, mathematics, as well as economic management, trade business and, of course, marketing, which is a modern philosophy of business.
   It is very important for a specialist in business matters to be a skilful user of computers and to speak at least one foreign language. It should better be English as it is the most popular language of international business communication.
   You'll be able to follow business developments in the world by listening to radio and TV news, by reading newspapers or magazines, or by getting in contact with your business partners abroad.
   If I pass my entrance exams successfully and enter the University, I'll try to study to the best of my abilities to achieve my life's ambition and to justify the hopes of my parents. I also hope that I'll never regret my choice and get a well-paid and interesting job afterwards.
   Maybe I should consider a job in a world of banking. There's a surprisingly wide range to choose from, in the financial world.
   For example, I could work for a big international company, run my own company, write about economics as a financial journalist, run my own International Business Research Agency, raise money for charities or just sell famous paintings.

Выбор профессии

   Есть много интересных и полезных профессий, и это действительно нелегкая задача выбрать правильную.
   Я начал думать о моей будущей профессии в возрасте 15 лет. Моими любимыми предметами в школе были математика и английский язык. Мои учителя были высоко образованными людьми с глубоким знанием предметов. Они поощряли меня в моем желании стать экономистом. Теперь я знаю, что буду делать после окончания школы.
   Я выбрал карьеру в экономике бизнеса. Я приходил к этому решению постепенно. Именно отец пробудил мой интерес к той области. Он — главный экономист на большом заводе, и я часто видел, как он работал дома и обсуждал деловые вопросы со своими коллегами.
   Чтобы стать хорошим специалистом в экономических вопросах и бизнесе, нужно знать много наук, таких как экономика предприятий, финансы и кредиты, статистика, история экономических учений и философия, математика и, конечно, маркетинг, который является современной философией бизнеса.
   Для специалиста по вопросам бизнеса очень важно быть квалифицированным пользователем компьютера и говорить по крайней мере на одном иностранном языке. Лучше, если это будет английский, поскольку это самый популярный язык международного делового общения.
   Вы будете в состоянии следить за развитием бизнеса в мире, слушая радио и телевизионные новости, читая газеты или журналы, или контактировать с вашими деловыми партнерами за рубежом.
   Если я сдам свои вступительные экзамены успешно и поступлю в университет, то я попытаюсь учиться настолько хорошо, насколько позволяют способности, чтобы достичь цели своей жизни и оправдать надежды моих родителей. Я также надеюсь, что я никогда не буду жалеть о своем выборе и впоследствии получу хорошо оплачиваемую и интересную работу.
   Возможно, я должен подумать о работе в мире банковского дела. В финансовом мире есть удивительно широкий диапазон для выбора.
   Например, я мог бы работать в крупной международной компании, управлять своей собственной компанией, писать об экономике как финансовый обозреватель, управлять своим собственным Международным агентством исследования конъюнктуры, собирать деньги на благотворительность или просто продавать известные картины.

The word "Christmas" is derived from the words "Christ's Mass" - the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ.

Sitting on the very top of th
Babies   Babies smelling of camomile tea, cologne water, wet laundry, dog soap. Babies who appear old, disillusioned and tired of life at six months.

My Family's Meals   My family isn't large. It consists of four members. But each member of owe family has his own tastes and interests. For example, my brother is fond of sports. So early in the morning he goes jogging.   That's why he has nothing to eat before it, because it would be bad for him to eat before exercises. But when he comes back, he has a shower and is more than ready for breakfast.
To begin with I’d like to comment on the metaphor that compares our body to a magnificent temple. In fact, it is a hundred percent true. A human body is a perfectly organized creation with millions of blood vessels. It has an extremely powerful engine that pumps gallons of blood every day. A human brain is a fantastic mind machine. It contains around 100 billion cells, equal to the number of stars
