In Catalonia, we have a tradition that we break the "tió" at night on 24th of December. In a lot of Coutries, the Christmas day there is Santa Claus, but  here in Catalonia we have a tradition that we breack the "tió. When we do it, we sing a song hitting a trunk with a stick. After that, we went to the kitchen to sing a song or to pray.  And finally, we go to see if the "tió" shit the presents and we did it many times and when the "tió" don't shit more, it's the finally.

23900DDF00000578-2853540-image-52_1417209329287.jpgLast Friday was the Black Friday, and it was a disorder in all the shops from US. The bargain hunters were accused to be like animals, because they fight to buy the products. The police was called  in to deal with mayhem and injuries in the shops. Also, there were three arrests. 
Sir Peter Fahy, from de police said that they were very dissappointed because the stores did not have sufficient security stuff in the shops.
There were a record number of hoppers  this days and they estimation there are going to be 518milion of euros.
The angry scense were in all the country and they cause to closed a lot of stores.

In my point of view, this have to be a big experience to live in London, but there were a lot of accident and it can be a bit dangerous. All the people very agressive because they want to buy a lot of things because there are a lot of sales. 


Last Friday was the premier of mockingjay, the third part of the hunger's game. I went to the cinema with my friends. First, we went to had dinner in a restaurant and then we went to saw the big film. 

The film elapse after the hunger's games were Katniss is in the district 13, where they live in the subsoil because the capitol extinction their district. In the place that they are, they are preparating to fight against to the Capitol. They need a person who have to encourage the others districts to fight and this symbol is Katniss. She accept but with a condicions, that they, first of all, have to rescue Peeta and the others guys that they were in the games. The problem is that Peeta was kidnap with the objective to kill Katniss. An other condicion is that she want to kill the president Snow.


The social media have changed our life for good and for bad. The social media brings the people together and facilates the social and busniess relationships. For use the socials media we have to have common sense and good judgment, without it, you can inadvertently  harm yourself and you could have social, financial and legal problems. The following is a list of 10 things that you have to take care before you post a video: 

  1. The things you say may have legal consequences: if you utter demaging untruths about a person, in Facebook or other social media, you may be liable for defamation.
  2. Get permission before using picture, articles, videos or content someone else produced: if you don't have permission you could may have copyright infringement. 
  3. Do not say or write anything on a social media site you do not want reoeated: be careful about what you say, because it can produce bad consequences. 
  4. Be careful about the pictures you post: because it can destroy your life.
  5. Don not use trademarks or copyrighted material without permission. 
  6. Watch out for spammers: because they could steal your identity. 
  7. Refrain from giving TMI: you can not say all that you do because they could steal in you house when you are in holidays, if you put it in the social media. 
  8. Assume what you say never goes away: you have to remember that what you say in this medias is going to be forever there.
  9.  Police constantly catch criminals by reading their Facebook pages.
  10. Assume people Google you and look at social media posts about you.
I think that the social media have very importance in our life because we are connected all day. But we have to take care about what we publish in it, in consequence of that it can produce bad things in the future.

The family of Julia and Jason Heckathron have an unique domestic animal a sloth. Their daughter have live with this special animal since she was born. Also the family have a kangaroo, an anteater, a cat and serval sugar gliders that they adopted when the parents know that they were expectingthe baby. 
Julia thanks that it would be grate for them to grow up with the sloth. 

I think that it's a crazy thing to have these animals in their house with a baby, because they have to take care to their daughter and the animals and they have to spend a lot of time of it.

Do you laught a lot? With who do you laugh? How often do you laugh? Humor is an important way to be happier in our life.

Nowadays, we are a society where we have a lot of stress and we are very strict in the jobs, so we have very strict orders from our boss. We need humor to distract us and for beeing more grateful and friendly with the people around us.
Also, humor can be a way to do the things better than when you are without humor. If you are happier you can better enjoy life and you can be good with yourself.

In conclusion, humor is essential in our life because it can help us o survive better and to be more grateful.

Last Saturaday, was my 17 birthday. All started on Friday night, when my friends and I went to ate a kebbab in Sant Pere. When it was midnight, my friends says to me "happy birthday" and then we went to sleep. I was thinking, all the night,  that my friends didn't do nothing to my birthday, so I was very angry and I was crying all night. 
I woke up at 10 o'clock and it was the big day, the day when I did 17 years old. But the day was very sad, because the only thing that I did was going to the supermarket to bought the things to celebrate my birthday on Sunday. When I arrived home, my sister had preapred clues arround the house and in the last clue there was a present. 
At night, my parents, my sister and I we had to go to had dinner in a restaurant, but first we had to pass to leave a jacket in a bar for my sister's friend. So, we went there and my mum forced me to set off the car. I was so angry, because I didn't want to go there. When we where inside the bar, my mum and I, we went to a separate room and it was there, where I saw one of my friends from Barcelona. So, I went into the room and I saw all my friends and it was a great surprise for me. 
The next day, on Sunday, I played the first match from the season and we won, so I was very happy. In the afternoon, my family and I celebrated my birthday all together. 
That was my special weekend.

Nowadays, the best camera in the market is the Gopro, a small camera that it can goes in the water and it's eassy to take away. But, Polaroid and HTC, they could make a camera that it could take the throne in this market. 

The Polaroin Cube, will be able for £89(114,41€) in October.  
It measures 3,8cm on all it's sides, can capture high definition video and can make images in a resolution of six megapixels. 

The device is splash proof, but if you want to submerge the camera, you have to put the waterproof casing
Also, it's magnetic, and it can attach in surfaces using an included clip.
In addition, it have  ntegrated a microphone and  LED light for the night. 

I think that it's going to be a big competence for de Gopro and this cameras can be more eassy to use. But, it can be more eassy to lose, because they are very small.

One of the days that I liked a lot was a day were ,my friends and I, went to fishing in the river. There we went to the river in the morning, we had lunch there and we finished in the afternoon. 
An other specila day was on September. Some of my friends and I went to did paddle surf. That was the best thing that I did in the summer. We went in the Club Nautic of Sant Pere Pescador and there we went to the river to started to did it. With the paddle we arrived in the end of the river and then we came back to the club. In the lunchtime we did a lunch in the river of the park.

Apple said that they sold more than 10 milion in the models of Iphone 6 and Iphone 6 plus in the first weekend that they were avaiable in the stores. That event created the best launch for the company ever.
According to Apple CEO Time Cook, sales of Iphone 6 and Iphone 6 plus exceeded their expectation for the weekend. Also, he said that his team was working hard to manufacture more Iphones to meet the demand. 
Iphone 6 starts to 699 euros for a 16GB, 799E for 64GB and 899E for 128GB.
The Iphone 6 plus starts to 799euros for 16 GB, 899E for 64GB and 99E for 128GB.

I think that this is a very good thing to Apple. Because, they have a lot of sales. But I think that is amazing that there were a lot of people that had bought the Iphone in only a weekend.

STRUCTURE(10%): I think that we organize our presentation well, we started with our self-presebrarion, and then we started explaining our topic. MARK: 10%

CONTENT (40%): We introduce news ideas and news to audience. MARK: 30%

LANGUAGE (20%): There was rich vocabulary, sentence linkers and fillers. MARK: 15%

Apple desing a new model of Iphone, that could finally Apple's battery woes
The news informations of the Iphone 6 will have arounded, thinner design and a larger screen. It could also feature a protruding camera, and boast new filters. 
The application makes the  power-saving changes, because now the battery of the Iphone is very bad. It also decrease the amount of power for use the phone more time.  

I think that it's going to be a big change of the tecnology, because we can use the phone all the day. But it can perjudice in the others phone companyes because all the people want to have the best phone if they can have.

Why Angelina Jolie seems that doesn't  have aged in years?
The Us Weekly (a magazine) says that she do an $800 treatment called the Triad facial,  which combines microdermabrasion, laser and a glycoloic peel. 
Angelina no is the only celebrity which use this treatment, also Naomi Watts, Michelle Williams and Rachel Weisz. Jolie stared doing the Triad facial in 2010. Also she use other products for the skincare, which range in price from $52 to $165. 
The treatment can cost between $800 and $1200 depending on the type

In my point of view, it's normal that all the celebrities deal her skin, because they have to be on TV every day, so they have to be beautiful with themselves. 


Last week, my friends and I went to the cinema to saw the premier of the new film of Zac Efron.

The film is about a happy family which they have a baby and they live in a good neighborhood, but one day appear a brotherhood and all the problems appear. The new guests do all the nights parties and what they want. So the family have to survive with this problems and they survive. 

I like this film but I thought it would be better. Also, I really like the character Zac Efron, that he appears in High School Musical (as a Troy Boltton).


Nowadays, a lot of people are saying that we are going to be happier if we do not go shopping. But, it is true? In my opinion it is true. 

Firstly, I feel that working less hours can be a big change, for all of us, because we can spend more time with our family or socialize withe other people. 
Secondly, the society is focus only to producemore and more to earn more money to consume and they think that are going to be happier, but in my point of view, it is a wrong mentality. We can be happier without all the goods, because we have things that we do not use. 

In conclusion, society is buying more stuff that they do not need and they are working a lot without free time to have fun.

All the girls like  to put fragrance in the morning, but in the lunchtime we don't have the fragrance. So, a jewellery invent a news jewels, a set of pendants and  bracelets that emit fragrance. This moderns jewels have a mini perfume bottle  that can be detached from the chain and used in the same way as a roll-on scent.
OBO, the new jewels, are a foolproof, it has been a series of tests to rule out embarrassing spillages.

Also, it has been a tests for make sure that it has the same results  as a classic pump dispenser. 
The Obo will costs between £49 and £57.

I think that is a big idea, because it's going to be very useful for all the girls because anyone like to take away her bottle of fragrance. 

In this photo you can see the pendant Obo.

In all the countries, the car license is different for all of they. For example, in Spain you can drive a car with 18 years old and in USA with 16. 

I think, driving a car is a big responsability because, if you can stop to think for it you can see that there are a lot of things that we have to take care. For example, if you are a teenager, keen on USA you can drive with 16 years old, when you can go to a party and you can go with your car. In this moment, you have to take a big decision: if you want to drink alcohol or not. If you choose the first option, you can't take the car and if you take the second option, you can drive the car. Well, this is an important asoect to think about. 

In conclusion, from my point of view, the best age to drive a casa is 18. It's the time when you take a lot of responssibilities. You are a big boy or girl and you have to choose what you want to do in your life. And this is the moment when you have a big change and you become an adult

Every day the science is progressing. The question is the science can be good or bad?

On the one hand, science can create atomics bombs to kill a lot of people and for creating a new war. Morever, if we do more experiments, they could produce a lot of pollution in our society. 

On the other hand,  science can help the progress of humanity creating new medicines for expending our lives. Adding to that, with medicines a lot of people could be saved. 

In conclusion, I think that science experiments have two sides: the part that can help or save a lot of people creating new medicines. And the problematic part, which nobody wants, where the science could kill a lot of innocent people. 


Aple is the first company which to incorporate an application for to attempt to deter thieves
Importants fiscals of USA says that it's a very important ending of the theft of smartphones.  This app is called "Activation Lock". The two fiscals met with the most importants brandies of smartphones in the world. And they tell to the others that they have to create a kill switch (a sistem which kill the system). The first company that develop this sistem is Apple. 

I think that this is a big inovation and develop of the technology. If this application works well can be a very good app.

It's very difficult to chose a film for me, because I love it and I see a lot. But finally I chose The Last Song of Nicholas Sparks.

This film is a bout a girl, called Ronnie, that she is obligated in the summer to go with her father in a beach house. Her father, Steve is a teacher of the piano and his daughter reject a scholarship of Julliard and she don't want to play the piano for take revenge of his father. The next morning, Ronnie discover that there are eggs of tortoise in front of their house and in the night there are birds which comes to eat it.  Ronnie, when see it, call to the animals service and the next night appears Will (the good guy) who comes to save the eggs of tortoises. In the same night, the two guys sleep next to the animals. During the days, they develop a summer love and in the night they take care of the tortoise. The finally of the film is when the animals are big and when the summer end, but if you want to know   more about the relationship you have to see the film. 

I really like this film because apart that is a typical story of a summer love, I really like the principal actors that they are Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth. 


Kate Perry was accused by Muslims of "portraying blasphemy" in her new single, Dark Horse.  In the video you can see that Katy is an Egyptian queen and she's transforms whose suitors in sand. More than 60.000 muslims, wants that the video must be eliminate because on man that take part of the it  wears a pendant with the Arabic word for God on it. A lot of muslims of around the world says that they are "ofended as a Muslim”. After this complaint, the video has attracted more than 34 millions views. 

In my point of view, Kate Perry have to respect all the religions, but no it's a big problem for eliminate a video that costs a lot of money.

Gap year

I'd like to travel to USA, because I really like this country, but I never travel there. A Gap year is a big oportunity for know USA and work at the same time.
