My Friend

   I have a lot of friends. Most of them are my former schoolmates. But my bosom friend is Lena. She is 16. Lena isn't very tall, but she is pretty in her own way.
   She has red curly hair and a turn-up nose. Lena wears spectacles and when spring comes there are plenty of freckles on her cheeks, forehead and nose. But all that doesn't make her plain or ugly. I like Lena because she is well-bred, jolly and kind.
   She does well at school though she has an unbreakable rule: never to study at night no matter how many written reviews are coming in the morning. She is also fond of reading plain books, and Lena sometimes thinks that one book isn't enough to read, she has two pr three books going at once. My friend has a lot of books at home, and she buys them wherever she goes.
   She says that the books are of great help any time and they always must be at her hand. Her idea is that it's much easier to have a library of her own comprising lots of books than to try keeping everything in her head. Lena goes in for sports and she is a member of our school basket-ball team. She is terribly quick and strong.
   It's a pleasure to watch her playing basket-ball: while others are hopping about in the air she always gets under their feet and grabs the ball. I don't like people who are bored at everything and who never make the slightest effort to be pleasant. That's why my friend is Lena, the most amusing person in the world. She thinks everything is funny — even flunking an exam.
   Lena is a sunny soul by nature and always takes the slightest excuse to be amused. My friend has an imagination and her own style. Usually she writes nice compositions and once even won short-story contest that our school wallpaper holds every year.
   Lena and me are good friends. We help each other a lot and try not to quarrel. But when sometimes it comes to quarrelling we try to make it up at once.

Моя подруга

   У меня много друзей. Большинство из них — мои бывшие одноклассники. Но моя закадычная подруга — Лена. Ей шестнадцать лет. Лена невысокого роста, но она по-своему красива.
   У нее рыжие вьющиеся волосы и курносый нос. Лена носит очки, и когда приходит весна, на ее щеках, лбу и на носу появляется много веснушек. Но все это не делает ее некрасивой. Мне нравится Лена, потому что она хорошо воспитана, веселая и добрая.
   Она хорошо учится в школе, хотя у нее есть одно нерушимое правило: никогда не учиться ночью, сколько бы письменных заданий не было задано на завтра. Она очень любит читать художественные книги и иногда думает, что одной книги недостаточно, она читает две или три книги одновременно. У моей подруги много книг дома, и она покупает их, куда бы ни пошла.
   Она говорит, что книги очень полезны в любое время, и они должны быть всегда у нее под рукой. Ее идея состоит в том, что намного легче иметь свою библиотеку, состоящую из большого количества книг, чем пытаться все удержать в голове. Лена увлекается спортом. Она член нашей школьной баскетбольной команды. Она очень быстрая и сильная.
   Приятно смотреть, как она играет в баскетбол: пока другие подпрыгивают вокруг, она всегда выхватывает у них мяч из-под ног. Я не люблю людей, которым ничего не нравится, и они не прилагают малейших усилий, чтобы с ними было приятно общаться. Вот поэтому Лена мой друг. Она самый забавный человек в мире. Она считает, что все в жизни - развлечение, даже провалиться на экзамене.
   Она по натуре веселый человек, и всегда использует малейшую возможность, чтобы посмеяться. У моей подруги есть воображение и свой стиль. Она пишет хорошие сочинения. И однажды она даже победила на конкурсе коротких рассказов, который проводится каждый год нашей школьной стенгазетой.
   Мы с Леной хорошие друзья. Мы много помогаем друг другу и стараемся не ссориться. Но если иногда до этого доходит, то стараемся сразу же помириться.

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
