New York is one of the largest cities in the world. Its population is over 11 million people. New York is an industrial and cultural centre of the country. Most business is centred in Manhattan Island. The whole area is very small, that's why the sky-scrapers were invented in New York and, especially, in Wall Street. Wall Street is a narrow street with big houses, but it is well known all over the world as the busiest street in the USA. People do business there. There are two more world-famous streets — Broadway and Fifth Avenue. Broadway is the centre of the theatres and nightlife. It is known as “The Great White Way” because of the electric signs which turn night into day.It is the city that never goes to sleep. Buses and sub-way run all night. There are many drugstores and restaurants which never close their doors. There are cinemas with films that start at midnight. Fifth Avenue is the great shopping, hotel, and club avenue.There are many places of interest in New York. They are: the Statue of Liberty, the United Nations Building, Empire State Building, Columbia University, City Hall, New York Public Library and others. When you come to NewYork you see lots of cars, big and small, black and yellow, old and modem; you do not see any trees or flowers in the streets, but only cars. You'll see and hear advertisements everywhere. There is no getting away from them.

Walt Disney was born in Chicago on December5, 1901. Disney attended McKinley High School in Chicago, and left at the age of 17 to become an ambulance driver in the First World War. In 1919 he moved to Kansas City and became a commercial artist.Then he went to Hollywood in 1923 to become an animator, working on cartoon films. He produced his first (black and white) Mickey Mouse cartoon in 1928.It was an instant hit with both children and adults. More cartoons followed, including ‘Flowers and Trees’ (1933), the first animated film in Technicolor. Then, three years later, Disney created his second cartoon superstar—Donald Duck.Later, Disney founded Walt Disney Productions, now known as The Walt Disney Company. Today, this company has annual revenues of approximately U.S. $35 billion. This success is largely due to a number of the world’s most famous fictional characters he and his staff created including Mickey Mouse, a character for which Disney himself was the original voice.He is particularly noted for being a film producer and a popular showman, as well as an innovator in animation and theme park design. Disney is famous for his contributions in the field of entertainment during the 20th century.Disney won 26 Academy Awards out of 59 nominations, including a record four in one year, giving him more awards and nominations than any other individual. He is also the namesake for Disneyland and Walt Disney World Resort theme parks in the United States, as well as the international resorts in Japan, France, and China.

Computer Games and Children
Scientists have looked at the relationship between violent films and children’s behaviour for years. They are now studying the effect of computer games on children. Lyn Hender, senior lecturer in educational psychology, focuses on how these games influence the way teenagers think. She looked at thirteen and fourteen-year-old students playing fantasy games on computers.She found that both weak and strong students clearly used complex thinking skills. “I think we never really see the advantages of such games in education. Parents and teachers do not think of these as being educationally useful,” Dr Hender said.“I think we only see the aggression and violence in them. Of course, some games are like that. But the majority are non-violent games that are good for developing the mind.” The students played a game called “Get The Money,”in which a group have to make money in various ways.For this game you need to think in almost the same way that you would in a sports game.“This is not an easy game, ... actually, you have to use logic as well as changing how you think.” Dr Hender stated.Teachers were surprised to see that teenagers whom they thought were weak students were as successful as their stronger classmates. Sometimes they were even better. “One weaker student completed a complex card game in which you had about nine different things to remember,” Dr Hender said. “I discovered she did it very easily, but some of the students I thought were strong had problems. I found that none of the students had any problems concentrating for a long time. They were determined to understand the game and get it right.Dr Hender concluded that the games used the same sort of strategies that were very valuable in classrooms. Teachers could try to make use of these game sand design tasks based on them for students in class. ‘Computers are not just a home leisure thing, ’she said.

Siberia’s medical train
The famous Trans-Siberian railway line runs from Moscow to Vladivostok, but there’s another line about 650 kilometres north of the Trans-Siberian. This is the Baikal-Amur Mainline (BAM) and a special train, the Matvei Mudrov medical train, travels along its 4,000 kilometres. The train, with its twelve to fifteen doctors, spends a day in each of the small towns and villages along the BAM. The inhabitants of these remote places depend on this service because they mostly don’t have regular access to any other health care.The Matvei Mudrov was named after a Russian doctor in the nineteenth century. He was one of the first doctors to believe that you shouldn’t only look at the disease, but you should also treat the individual patient. Nowadays, the Matvei Mudrov stops in each town or village on the BAM about twice a year. In the village of Khani (population 742) the patients include a man who has broken both ankles and a teenage girl who needs a check- up after surgery for appendicitis. Luckily, she was able to get to a town three hours away for the operation. Although the Matvei Mudrov can’t offer surgery, the train has a laboratory for blood and urine tests, heart monitors, an ultrasound and an x-ray machine. The medical staff includes specialists, such as neurologists, and they can diagnose and recommend treatment for their patients. The patients say they respect the doctors’ honesty and skill.At another of the train’s stops, a town of about 4,000 people, there is already a queue of people waiting. 61-year-old Mikhail Zdanovich is one of them. He originally came to this town, Berkakit, in 1976. At the time it was a new town, with only about a hundred young people living in camp conditions.It was part of a Soviet Union expansion plan. Zdanovich married a woman who worked at the town bakery and they settled in the town. As soon as Zdanovich goes into the office, the doctor, Yelena Miroshnichenko, cries ‘Oh, Mikhail, I recognised your voice.’ He has a dislocated shoulder. The doctor writes a letter to say that he can’t work while he’s waiting for his shoulder to be treated. He leaves, happy, and then he returns a few minutes later. He brings freshly baked pies and jar of goat’s milk. It’s clear that after years on the Matvei Mudrov, the doctors and their patients know each other well.And, in fact, for these people living in this remote part of Russia, the Matvei Mudrov is more than just a health service.It’s a connection to the rest of their country, a confirmation that they are not forgotten.
