A FELADATOT A FENTI KÉPRE VAGY IDE KATTINTVA INTERAKTÍVAN IS MEGOLDHATOD ONLINE !!

 

A for __________(1)

The official announcement states that 'the wedding will take place in spring 2018', but reports have suggested it could be happening in April. Windsor Castle - the perfect reception venue - is to be closed on that day and its state apartments will be shut on the day before and the day after. However, a Betfair spokesperson has also said there has been a flurry of betting for a May date.

B for __________(2)

Popular Meghan has her pick of __________(2). As both her best friend and stylist, Jessica Mulroney is the main contender for matron of honour. Tennis champion Serena Williams is another possibility. She met the bride-to-be at a charity football game in 2014 and Meghan says they're connected by 'our endless ambition'. Star Wars actress Janina Gavankar recently shared a selfie with Meghan, her friend of 15 years, saying: 'Couldn't be prouder how far we've come'. Then there's her gym buddy, fitness guru Heather Dorak, and her old uni friend, TV producer Lindsay Roth, who enlisted 'selfless' Meghan as her maid of honour last August.

C for __________(3)

After behaving impeccably during the May wedding of her aunt Pippa Middleton to James Matthews, HRH Princess Charlotte, who turned three on May 2, could reprise her role as s flower girl for Uncle Harry's big day. Her four-year-old brother Prince George received a ticking off from his mother Kate at Berkshire nuptials, but is likely to join his little sister as a page boy. Harry is very fond of his niece and nephew, referring to them as the 'most amazing things ever'.

D for __________(4)

William famously presented Kate with their late mother's blue sapphire engagement ring and Harry has also paid tribute to the late __________(4) Princess of Wales by presenting Meghan with a ring that includes two diamonds from her private collection.

E for __________(5)

When asked about her dream wedding gown, Meghan once said: 'I personally prefer dresses that are whimsical or subtly romantic.' Step forward Canadian/Turkish fashion designer Erdem Moralioglu, a favourite of Meghan, who has been wearing the label for years. His penchant for giving antique lace and fancy frills a modern twist make him a likely go-to for the wedding gown. Other choices could include a classic look by English designer Jenny Packham, a floral dress by Elie Saab or a fairy-tale number - much like her character wore in legal drama Suits - by Oscar de la Renta.

F for __________(6)

Despite being blessed with a fresh, glowing, complexion, Meghan will go all out to look her best on her big day. A facial courtesy of Sarah Chapman is just the thing - and the beauty guru to the stars gave Meghan a treatment at her Chelsea clinic Skinesis after she flew into the UK just over a week ago. Meghan, whose mum Doria encouraged her to start getting facials when she was just 13, has previously spoken about practising facial massage at home, trying infra-red saunas, drinking two litres of water a day and using a clarins serum and moisturiser. 

G for __________(7)

The cute beagle and his canine companion Bogart, a Labrador-shepherd cross, are described as 'my loves' by Meghan. She's revealed that one is staying with close friends and the other has been in the UK for a while. They're used to posing for photos, featuring heavily in her past social media posts, but whether they'll play a part in her big day as doggie ring bearers is another matter.

H for __________(8)

Meghan's mum Doria Ragland is the only known family member to have met Harry. The yoga teacher, who has allegedly been offered a room at Anmer Hall when the royals celebrate Christmas in Sandringham, was by the couple's side at October's Invictus Games closing ceremony in Toronto. She is divorced from Meghan's father Thomas Markle, but the two remain friends. It's not known whether Meghan's half-brother Tom Markle Jnr will attend, or her half-sister Samantha Grant. She has previously criticised Meghan for not reaching out when she was diagnosed with MS.

I for __________(9)

Meghan is a keen calligrapher and may well address the __________(9) herself! Celebrities hoping to receive one include Victoria Beckham who attended the the 2011 royal wedding. She might even design Meghan's gown, as Meghan is a fan of her clothes. Actor Patrick J Adams, who plays Meghan's love interest on Suits, describes their relationship as like 'brother and sister' so he may be there. Their mutual pal Markus Anderson, a businessman, is a very likely attendee. Former Made in Chelsea star Millie Macintosh, American socialite Olivia Palermo and actresses Gem Pinkney and Priyanka Chopra could attend. The groom's gusets may include actor Dominic West, Barack and Michelle Obama, singer Joss Stine and Harry's old friend Guy Pelly.

J for __________(10)

The Archbishop of Canterbury __________(10) Welby will officiate their church wedding. Congratulating the couple on Twitter, he wrote: 'I'm absolutely delighted to hear the news that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are now engaged. I wish them many years of love, happiness and fulfilment - and ask that God blesses them throughout their married life together.' He previously baptised TRH Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

K for __________(11)

Among the first to react to the news was the Prime Minister Theresa May. She tweeted  her 'warmest congratulations' to the pair, calling the announcement 'a time of huge celebration for two people in love'. Her predecessor David Cameron, Jeremy Corbyn, Fearne Cotton and Paula Radcliffe were among other celebrity supporters tweeting their best.

L for __________(12)

During their first joint interview on Monday evening, Harry and Meghan described their __________(12) relationship. 'We knew we had to invest the time and the energy and whatever it took into making that happen,' said Meghan, adding that it was 'not the easiest' to juggle her filming commitments in Toronto with travelling to the UK. 'We never went longer than two weeks without seeing each other,' said Harry, adding: 'Two different time zones and five hours apart does have its challenges, but then we made it work - and now we're here.'

M for __________(13)

While William and Kate invited Ellie Goulding to perform at their big day, Meghan's choice of wedding band could be more obscure. The actress is close friends with Canadian singer Martina Sorbara and earlier this year, Martina's band Dragonette was included on a list of Meghan's favourites compiled on her blog, The Tig. Harry was spotted watching The Killers at Hyde Park this summer, so the Las Vegas band are hotly tipped to take to the stage for his big day. Meanwhile, opera singer Laura Wright has been a regular fixture at Harry's Invictus Games and even wrote the tournament's official song, Invincible.

N for __________(14)

The newly engaged couple will set up home in Harry's two-bedroom residence, Nottingham Cottage. Nestled in the grounds of Kensington Palace, it's a stone's throw from William and Kate's official residence, Apartment 1A. It's been Harry's home for the past four years, before which it was William and Kate's first marital abode. Meghan will no doubt put her own stamp on the property, as Kate once did. The smallest dwelling on the 17th century royal estate, it boasts two reception rooms, a small garden and rooms originally designed by Sir Christopher Wren.

O for __________(15)

At the time of going to print, Westminster Abbey and Windsor Castle were events for the wedding venue, according to Betway. The odds on the ceremony taking place after Kate gives birth to her third child, due in April, were 1/3 and Prince William was odds-on to be picked as his brother's best man, at 1/4. The odds on Harry and Meghan, who both want children, announcing they're expecting a baby next year are now at 4/7.

P for __________(16)

Removal vans were spotted outside Meghan's rented Toronto home at the end of November, with her furniture reportedly heading into storage. The property, owned by Kevin O'Neill and his wife Liz Cabral, was located in the quiet, middle class residential area of Seaton Village, with minimal security.

Q for __________(17)

It is thought that Harry sought his grandmother's permission to propose back in October. In what is believed to have been Meghan's first meeting with Her Majesty, the couple visited Buckingham Palace for an intimate, hour-long tea party with the Queen. He was obliged to seek permission from the monarch under the Succession of the Crown Act 2013, which states that the six persons next in line to the crown must obtain the consent of Her Majesty to marry.

R for __________(18)

Once married, Meghan will be expected to carry out a number of royal engagements each year and has made preparations for the new role. Just as Kate did before her, the actress is set to leave her job, having been written out of Suits during the show's seventh series. In 2016, William, Kate and Harry carried out 485 engagements and it's expected Meghan's __________(18) will begin soon after she and Harry tie the knot.

S for __________(19)

Though some have assumed that Meghan will automatically become a princess following her nuptials, that's not the case. That title is only bestowed upon those born into the royal family - instead, she will likely become a duchess. It's thought that the Queen will assign Harry and Meghan the dukedom of Sussex upon their marriage, just as she made William and Kate the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge after their wedding. The title became extinct after its last holder, Prince Augustus Frederick, son of George III, died in 1843.

T is for __________(20)

She may be marrying into royalty, but it's unlikely Meghan is getting hitched to future King. Harry is currently fifth in line to the throne, but following the birth of William and Kate's third child in April 2018, he will drop to sixth in line.

 U for __________(21)

Harry acted as an usher for Tom 'Skippy' Inskip when he said 'I do' to Lara Hughes-Young in Jamaica earlier this year, accompanied by Meghan, so it's fair to assume he could return the favour. Harry has also acted as an usher for pals Thomas van Straubenzee, Jamie Murray Wells and Edward van Cutsem over the years. Of course the top role of best man will likely go to Harry's brother William, given that Harry acted as William's best man in 2011.

V for __________(22)

Meghan gave the biggest hint at her future life as a royal when she opened up abut her relationship in a cover story for Vanity Fair magazine. Referring to Harry as her 'boyfriend', she told the publication: 'We are two people who are really happy and in love.' Paving the way for this week's official announcement she said: 'I'm sure there will be time when we will have to come forward and present ourselves and have stories to tell,' adding: 'Personally, I love a great love story.'

W for __________(23)

It has been the venue of choice for several royal weddings over the years, including Her Majesty the Queen's 1947 wedding to Prince Philip, and Kate and William's 2011 nuptials, so it's no wonder that many are speculating that Westminster Abbey will be the place that Harry and Meghan will tie the knot. Windsor Castle is another hotly-tipped option, or London's St Paul's Cathedral.

X for __________(24)

Harry might have dated a string of beauties over the years, including Cressida Bonas, Jenna Coleman and Ellie Goulding, but it was once assumed that long-time love Chelsy Davy would one day become his wife. The pair split in 2010, after almost seven years together, and remain close friends to this day, with Chelsy even attending William and Kate's wedding. But don't expect Meghan's former husband, film producer to make an appearance.

Y for __________(25)

Meghan is a big fan of hot yoga, and will no doubt be practising it more regularly in a bid to look her best ahead of her big day. 'My mom is a __________(25) instructor, and I started doing mommy-and-me yoga with her when I was seven.' she explained. 'In college, I started doing it more regularly.'

Z for __________(26)

As well as neighbouring nation Botswana, where the centre diamond on Meghan's ring comes from, the couple have special memories of __________(2) having taken a three-week trip there this summer to celebrate Meghan's 36th bithday, so it could be a contender as a honeymoon destination. Harry has previously revealed that the continent holds a special place in his heart, first visiting soon after his mum's death in 1997: 'My dad told my brother and me we were going to Africa to get away from it all. This is where I feel more like myself than anywhere in the world. I have this intense sense of complete relaxation and normality here'.

A FELADATOT A FENTI KÉPRE VAGY IDE KATTINTVA INTERAKTÍVAN IS MEGOLDHATOD ONLINE !!

One problem that practically everyone faces is how to go about finding a "good" dentist. _____1_____ As a consumer, there are several aspects you should consider about your dentist and their office after you have decided on a particular dentist to care for your teeth.

The internet is filled with dentists who all have one thing in common: a license to practise dentistry in your country. However, they all have different personalities, different levels of experience, and different degrees of expertise. Before you begin looking for a dentist, you should ask yourself these questions:

Are you looking for a dentist near your home, or are you willing to travel a reasonable distance to be treated by a particular dentist you trust and like?

Are certain times of the day or week better for you? Some dentists have early or late office hours; some work on Saturdays. How important are these considerations?

Do you have a physical handicap that requires special attention? Some general dentists and certain specialists cater to specific problems. Also, handicapped patients may need to consider the physical layout of the dental office and its location in relation to parking.

What is your problem? Do you need your teeth cleaned and checked? Do you have an emergency? _____2_____

Do you need a general dentist or a specialist? General dentists are trained to do all types of treatment; however, if you have difficult or unusual problems, the general dentist may refer you to a specialist.

The most readily available sources of information about dentists are your friends, acquaintances, work associates, family physician, or pharmacist. Ask them how long they have gone to their dentist, and how they made their selection. You will primarily find out something about these dentists' personalities, but you should realize that you will rarely get much information about their technical abilities.

_____3_____ They can assist you by recommending several dentists in your area who seem to fit your needs. Then you can call these dentists and decide for yourself if you feel comfortable. You may also want to check on the credentials of a particular dentist. For example, you may want to know if the dentist providing orthodontic treatment is a specialist or a general dentist. Your local dental society can also help you find a dentist if you have an emergency situation. Most societies have rotating emergency lists of dentists who have volunteered to take dental emergency calls on a 24-hour basis.

If you are moving, your current dentist is an excellent person to ask for recommendation. Many times, if they do not know anyone, they will have a colleague who can give them a recommendation.

_____4_____ 

Is the dentist or their hygienist prevention oriented, pointing out things you can do yourself in order to maintain good dental health? The dentist and their hygienist should provide oral prophylaxis (tooth cleaning), fluoride treatments, sealants, replacements for missing teeth, and needed restorations (fillings). Home care is up to you.

Do they emphasize continued long-term care? In other words, is there a recall system that automatically notifies you when it's time for you periodic checkup?

Does the dentist use dental X rays, when needed, to assist in diagnosing your problem? On the initial visits to their office, they should request that you have X rays taken of all your teeth so they can determine the overall condition of your mouth. On subsequent visits X rays should be taken as needed. No dentist should restore a tooth without proper X rays. At the time of the X ray, note if the dentist is radiation conscious. They should place a lead apron over you to protect you from any "scatter radiation". He should even have a thyroid collar on the lead-lined apron.

Using the information from the X rays and other diagnostic parameters of evaluation, a dentist can suggest what treatment is needed to restore your mouth to good condition again. _____5_____ Dental problems are much less expensive to treat in their early stages. 

Does the dentist take a complete medical and dental history to be included as part of your permanent record? This gives the dentist insight into your particular needs. It can also help prevent possible complications. For instance, it would alert the dentist to allergies you might have to medicines, or to an illness that might require modification of the usual treatment. Even if you have gone to this particular dentist regularly for a period of time, you should be sure that they are aware of any changes in your medical status, medicines you might be using now, or allergies that might have been detected since your last visit. _____6_____ Let you dentist make this decision. For example, you might recently have found that you are a diabetic. This is significant to your dentist, even though the disease has no apparent direct involvement with your teeth. The reason is that diabetes causes a delay in the healing process. Diabetes also can cause gingivitis (gum inflammation). This may mean you need to make more frequent visits to their office to have your teeth cleaned.

Does the dentist or their staff openly discuss your treatment needs, fees, and payment plans in advance of treatment? This approach allows both parties' expectations to be met, and fosters a lasting relationship.

Is emergency care available? Though many dentists list their telephone numbers, others have answering services. Usually, an answering service takes calls and help you find either your own dentist or someone who has agreed to handle after-hours emergency calls. Some dental societies have a list of volunteer dentists who will meet your emergency needs on a 24-hour basis.

The most important step in finding a dentist, however, is to look before you need one, not after you have no choice but to take whoever is available.

/Better Dental Care by J.F. Taintor/

 

A) Do not make the decision on your own that any medical information is of no dental significance.

B) Like all things in nature, our teeth and their supportive structures tend to break down in time.

C) Most people make this crucial decision several times during their lives.

D) Another way to find a dentist is to call your local dental society.

E) These factors will determine whether you need to see someone immediately or whether you can wait for a regular scheduled appointment.

F) Several aspects of the dentist’s practice can give you useful information in making your choice.

G) This is a far better and less expensive route for you to take than just "taking care of what hurts".

Time Travelling

Jet lag can ruin your long-haul holiday, but our expert advice will leave you less spaced-out

get_over_your_jet_lag.png

Repültél már egyik időzánából egy másikba? (No, it's not a sci-fi movie casting..) Akkor valószínűleg nem ismeretlen számodra a JET LAG jelenség. A következőkben egy olyan cikket alakítottam át TELC Language Elements feladattá, mely e közismert utazóbetegség élettani hátterét mutatja be és hasznos szakértői tippeket ad arra, hogyan minimalizálhatjuk a JET LAG kellemetlen tüneteit.

A feladat hagyományosan: az alábbi 15 kifejezés közül csak 10 illik a szövegben elhelyezett GAP-ekbe. Melyek ezek és hova kerülnek?

Toddlers who refuse to sleep, adults cranky and hungry at the wrong time and a body clock that has gone haywire. Sound familiar? Yes, that's a long-haul holiday for many people. Jet lag is a physical inevitability for most of us when flying long distances, but there are ways to minimise its __________(1). It's all down to eating, sleeping and moving - we are loath to say exercise, because it isn't - so read on.

Your body has a natural clock set by the hours of sunlight you are exposed to daily. The light travels deep into your eyes and reaches the pineal gland, which in turn sends messages to __________(2) in your body that tell you when to wake up, when to feel tired, when to eat and even when to go to the toilet.

The trouble when you fly is that you are trying to reset this internal body clock quickly and it won't play game. It wants to, but it takes time - an estimated one day per one hour of time difference. In practice, that means it could take the entire two weeks of your holiday to __________(3) a 14-hour time difference, or a week to get over a typical flight to the US East Coast, say.

And guess what? Then you have to travel home and go through it all again.

We all know the symptoms of __________(4) - fuzzy head, tired during the day, wide awake at night, hungry but never at mealtimes and the sudden desire to go to the toilet at weird times. However, there are some simple things you can do to help reset your your body clock as quickly as possible to minimise these symptoms.

Lisa Artis of the Sleep Council stresses that diet, moving and getting out in the sunlight and fresh air are key.

✈THE DAY BEFORE

"Diet plays a large part in setting your body clock. The day before you fly, make sure you eat three balanced __________(5), including at least five servings of fruit or green vegetables and one portion of protein-rich food, such as white fish or tofu."

✈ON THE PLANE

"Drink plenty of water on your journey and while on holiday to keep your body hydrated and feeling refreshed. Once on the plane, set your watch to the local time of your __________(6). Pack an eye mask and ear plugs and use them if it's nighttime where you're going. Equally keep the light on and mask off if it's daytime in your destination. Whether on your journey there or on your way home, eat according to the mealtimes of the place you're going, avoid alcohol and take regular walks up and down the __________(7)."

✈WHEN YOU LAND

"Try to get out and about as soon as you can if you land in daylight. Enjoy the sunlight and let it help reset you pineal gland. Also, try to eat at the time of your destination's mealtimes, even if it's only a snack to help reset your digestive tract. Stay active and avoid __________(8) until bedtime - get out and walk in the fresh air. If you arrive and it's nighttime, have a carbohydrate-rich meal, pop two magnesium citrate tablets to help your body rest - magnesium is a natural muscle relaxant - and try to sleep. Don't stress if you can't - simply lie quietly in the dark and gather your thoughts; try to relax and enjoy the quiet."

✈ON HOLIDAY

"During your break away, __________(9) a healthy diet to help control your wakefulness: high protein meals increase your alertness while lots of carbohydrates make you feel sleepier. If you can, take your pillow with you for some familiarity and comfort. For less exotic destinations, the problems are more likely to be about comfort than jet lag. An eye mask and ear plugs will help you sleep if noise or light outside is an __________(10). Keep your bed as a sleep zone and check the temperature. Ensure you keep the bedroom cool -the ideal sleeping environment is 16-18 °C."

 SHOCKING SPLIT

After 12 years and six kids together, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt reveal the unraveling of their marriage just months after their two-year anniversary

brangelinaover.png

Na, szép, mondhatom! Eddig bírták Angelinaék..Na de miért? Ha tudni szeretnéd a szaftos részleteket egy nyelvvizsga feladatba rejtve  tutira meglelheted! Újabb lyukas szöveg típusú szövegértés feladatot hoztam Nektek, amely egy eredeti amerikai sajtócikk feldolgozása. A feladat pedig a nyelvvizsga által megszabott lesz: Helyezz vissza a megadott 6 elem közül 5 db-ot a szövegben hagyott GAP-ekbe (rés/szöveglyuk), tehát egy elem felesleges lesz, azt ki kell hagyni. Rajta!

Segítő szószedetet a cikk végén találsz! Kellemes angolozást!

 

ÍME, A KIHAGYOTT MONDATOK:

A) It seems she has been looking for a new life for a while and that Brad just doesn't fit in.

B) That was especially true in 2013 when Jolie underwent a preventive double mastectomy , and again in 2015 when a high cancer risk led her to remove her ovaries and fallopian tubes.

C) His approach is: 'I'm gonna do what's best for my family.'

D) "A few months in I realized, 'God, I can't wait to get to work,'" Jolie said of filming Mr. & Mrs Smith with Pitt in Rome.

E) A few days ago, after months of mounting  tensions, Jolie told her husband of two years - and a partner of 12 - that she wanted a divorce.

F) Irreconcilable differences: check. Joint legal custody of their children: check.

MOST PEDIG KERESD MEG, MELYIK ELEM HONNAN MARADT KI!

This is not how either Brad Pitt or Angelina Jolie wanted their marriage to end. [___1___] "She sat down , talked to Brad and offered to file [for divorce] together," says a source close to the actress. "She said, 'This is what I'd like to do.' She explained everything. Angelina did what she felt she needed to do." For his part Pitt knew his marriage was in trouble, and he'd been in counseling "to try to figure out how to make things better" for the couple's six kids, says a source in Pitt's circle. He "begged her to press pause" - not so they could reconcile, but so they could prepare their children for the massive upheaval to come, says the Pitt source: "He was willing to do anything, change any habit, change any lifestyle, to do what had to be done to make this work.  And by 'make this work,' that means doing what  has to be done to make even a split one that is amicable and in the best interests of the children."

But time was up. On Sept. 19 the 12-year Hollywood fairy tale known around the world as Brad & Angelina - both stars privately chafed at their popular Brangelina nickname - ended with 28 checked boxes in a divorce petition filed in Los Angeles by Jolie. [___2___] In the box beside "physical custody," Jolie checked only herself, with "visitation" for Pitt, and she did not request spousal support. She signed her name in two places - including the "Pitt" she took after the couple's wedding in 2014 - and the court clerk stamped the document case No. BD646058. "I am very saddened by this, but what matters most now is the well-being of our kids," Pitt, 52, said in a statement to Magazine*, while Jolie, 41, said, "This decision was made for the health of the family." Of course, "both Brad and Angelina care very much about their kids," says the source in Pitt's circle, " and there is sadness on both sides."

Sadness, yes, and also shock. The split marks a sudden unhappy-ever-after for a couple who had ranked as the 21st century version of Bogie and Bacall, Taylor and Burton, Hepburn and Tracy: two wildly glamorous Oscar winners at the top of their game, showing off their sex appeal and chemistry with effortless ease  on hundreds of red carpets. Theirs was an on-set romance that blossomed into the robust real life with their six kids: Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and 8-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne. "If you ask any of the kids about us, I feel like they'd say, 'Let's talk about how Mommy and Daddy are so uncool. That Daddy makes better pancakes than Mommy," Jolie told Magazine* in 2014. "We spend so much time at home that the film aspect is a fun part of our lives, but it's a small part."

In recent months that home life had become increasingly fraught. Sources on both sides acknowledge that the two stars can be challenging to live with. "Brad is not a saint," says the Pitt source and "Angelina is absolutely no angel," says the insider. "She has a complicated pesonality and can be difficult to deal with - she has always been very extreme." Things took a turn for the worse, sources say, sometime after the couple's 2014 wedding - during which "we committed our lives to the children," Jolie said. "Since they got married, Angelina has changed a lot," says the insider. "She wants something more than being an actress and director. She wants to be more involved with the United Nations and her missions." Earlier this year, adds the insider, "she seemed troubled and almost depressed. Angelina said she was just bored. [___3___] 

Although they had long gone to painstaking lenghts to ensure they balanced their family and work lives, lately the pair had been pulled in separate directions. Pitt filmed Allied and War Machine overseas, while Jolie wrapped her latest directoral effort, First They Killed My Father, in Cambodia and continued her work for the United Nations' refugee agency. The insider who knows both stars says that Pitt made multiple solo trips to the couple's home in France, Chateau Miraval, following disagreements between the spouses: "They definitely spent more time apart this year, but it's still a shock."

Pitt himself was among those caught off guard by the timing, according to multiple people in their circle. "He got a heads-up [about the filing] two days before, and he was appealing to her to do this quietly - not to save the marriage but to consider the well-being of the children - and it was ignored," contends the Pitt source. "He is just wrecked by this." Pointing to other high-profile breakups, the source says that Jolie's divorce filing could have been handled less abruptly.  "Look at Gwyeneth [Paltrow  and Chris Martin], look at Ben [Affleck] and Jen [Garner], " says the Pitt source. "You go to that godforsaken island, you hunker down together, you grit your teeth, and you get through it. You don't do it this way." Pitt, the source adds, "is not going to go head-to-head with her. [___4___]

So what prompted Jolie to make the final break? Both sides quickly shot down rumours that Pitt was in any way involved with French actress Marion Cotillard, his costar in the upcoming drama Allied. "It's unfortunate if anybody tries to introduce negativity into what is already a very difficult and painful situation," says a Pitt source.

Even as the relationship hit rough patches - from the everyday stresses of raising a large family to the life-changing challenges of Jolie's two cancer-preventing surgeries - the pair appeared committed to working through their issues. "It was more like their was over and they entered a real marriage," says the insider. "The differences and arguments they had all seemed very normal." That included diverging parenting styles, with Brad taking a "stricter approach" to Angelina's "more relaxed attitude," says the source. "It never seemed it was a big deal. Brad and Angelina are both great, great parents. And their differences seemed to make them a great parent team."

But behind closed doors the relationship was quietly unraveling. "Things built and built over time - it wasn't any one thing," says the Jolie source. "She's loved this man for several years, and [divorce] is not something you do impulsively." The Pitt source concurs, citing "a series off issues and a cycle of disagreements," but says there was a final straw. "There was clearly a breaking point, where she'd just had enough," says the source. "He may have been broken himself and said he couldn't go on, and she reacted. This has been difficult for a while. Marriages are difficult especially when you're those two people, with those schedules and six children."

It's a far different life from the one each star had when they met in 2004 on the set of Mr. & Mrs. Smith. At the time, Pitt was married to Jennifer Aniston and Jolie was twice divorced, from actors Tommy Lee Miller and Billy Bob Thornton. She was also a single mother to son Maddox, whom she adopted from Cambodia in 2003. They quickly bonded, and she later told Vogue that when the shoot wrapped in 2004 - Pitt and Aniston split early the next year - the pair realized that their connection "might mean something more than we'd earlier allowed ourselves to beleive."

Throughout the next decade the two A-listers grew their careers, their family and their fortune. (It's estimated at a combined $500 million.) With their time-zone-hopping adventures and their children's diverse backgrounds, they embodied both Hollywood fantasy and spirited sense of the modern American family. They gushed about the custom bed they built for all the kids to pile into, joked about Angelina's terrible cooking and embraced what they repeatedly described as the happy "chaos" of it all. "Brad's an extraordinary father," she told Magazine* in 2010. "We have each other's backs."

[___5___] (Pitt also supported her through the 2007 ovarian cancer death of her mother, Marcheline Bertrand, at age 56.) When they shot their 2015 drama By the Sea, which Jolie wrote and directed, about a couple whose marraiage was coming undone, she said that their own only strengthened them and that they both "appreciate the beauty in each other's changes...and look forward to even more years together." A year before, she had told Magazine*, "We've been through so much. We've gotten a lot closer, which I think naturally happens with raising a family together. You have history."

Now that history includes a heartbreaking final chapter - one both sides say is still being written. "They ultimately will try to find a dignified way to move forward," says the Pitt source. "He will always love her and wants to find a way to resolve this amicably, for the sake of their kids." Jolie feels the same. "She desperately cares about Brad," says a source close to her. "He's the father of her children." Adds a mutual friend of both stars: "She'll always love him. Sometimes no matter how hard you try, it doesn't work out, and it's so sad."

BREAKING NEWS:

Biztosan mindannyian hallottátok már, hogy az ORIGÓ NYELVVIZSGARENDSZER MEGVÁLTOZIK idén novembertől. Szinte minden készséget a régihez képest duplán fognak mérni, azaz az írásbeli és szóbeli szövegértésből is (azaz Reading Comprehension-ből és a Listeningből is) 2-2 feladatot fogtok kapni, Writing-ból, azaz szövegformálásos feladatból is kettő lesz (választható levél + valamilyen jellegű véleménynyilvánítás) és újra két irányba is kell majd fordítani (Közvetítés angolról magyarra - középfokon, illetve magyarról angolra is - felsőfokon). A Speaking rész ellenben ugyanaz maradt: interjú, témakifejtés kép alapján és szituációs szerepjáték/párbeszéd.

Úgyhogy lássunk is hozzá a felkészüléshez! Mára hoztam nektek egy "LYUKAS" SZÖVEGET (Gapfilling), amely egyébként a NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC publikációi között jelent meg és az intőrákok párválasztásáról szól. A feladat pedig a nyelvvizsga által megszabott lesz: Helyezz vissza a megadott 5 elem közül 4-et a szövegben hagyott GAPekbe (rés/szöveglyuk), tehát egy elem felesleges lesz, azt ki kell hagyni. Rajta!

 

Why (Claw) Size Matters

fiddler_crabs.jpg

All around her, guys wave seductively, beckoning her to their beach homes. [1] By the quality of his lodging, the allure of his wave - and, especially the size of his claw.

The female fiddler crab has two small, symmetrical claws; the male has one small and one oversize. "The large claw is all about the initial attraction," says marine biologist Zachary Darnell of Louisiana's Nicholls State University. [2] "Maybe a crab with a large claw relative to his body size , and a bit higher wave than others" - because if he can tote and swing a claw that's up to half his body weight, he's probably a physically fit sire.

After the pair has sex in the beach burrow, the female stays there while her eggs develop; the male goes back to waving and often brings home other females. [3] It's a thermoregulator, as air passing over it seems to dissipate heat and lower body temperature.

A big claw is also the male crab's best weapon: [4] After a few weeks, the pregnant females will emerge from that love lair and head for the waterline, where they'll release their larvae.

(Adapted from National Geographic - author: Patricia Edmonds)

Place the following items back into the text. There is an extra item you will not need.

A- After checking out several males and the love-nest burrows they've dug, a female "will find a male whose claw she really likes," he says.

B- He uses it to fight rivals and keep intruders away from his burrow.

C- When it comes to claws, right-handed attracts the females.

D- How will a female fiddler crab pick a mate?

E- On the hot sand, his claw is more than just a chick magnet, Darell's research has found.

Hivatalos Testino fotók ♚CHARLOTTE HERCEGNŐ♛ KERESZTELŐJÉRŐL és szövegkitöltős feladat

Angol tanulás online és offline, akárhol vagy bárhol! English-Online.hu :) Nyelvtanulás és szórakozás egy helyen!

Extra: ünnepi királyi fotózkodós szókincstár képleírásos kifejezésekkel!

 

A Jordán vizével keresztelték meg július 5-én Charlotte Elisabeth Diana brit hercegnőt, William és Kate kisebbik gyermekét, a kis George húgát, Norfolkban. A világhírű fotós, Testino lőtt néhány fantasztikus képet róluk. Miközben megcsodálod őket, meg is oldhatod ezt a kapcsolódó brit cikkre épülő szövegkitöltős feladatot. Mindenhol egyszerűbb szavak hiányoznak: prepozíciók, névmások, névelők, segédigék stb. A szövegértést segítő szószedetet a cikk végén zölddel, míg a fotózkodós szókincset lilával szedve találod majd. Enjoy! (A feladat megoldásait 3 nap múlva posztolom ugyanide ☻ )

Captured by Testino after Princess Charlotte's christening William and Kate radiate happiness as they pose with their beautiful children at Sharingham.

"What impressed me the most was the energy of the family and of that between the Duke and Duchess. One sees how solid they are together and one gets a sense of their strong family values." (Testino)

This is the special moment _____(1) the world's most famous photographer captured the world's most famous family as they celebrated the "wonderful" day of _____(2) daughter's christening.

Standing in the garden of Sharingham House, dappled in sunlight and smiling broadly _____(3) the camera, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge share an intimate family portrait taken _____(4) Mario Testino of the couple with their two children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

As little George plays with _____(5) lock of his dark blond hair, his baby sister, dressed _____(6) the royal christening gown, looks alert and on the verge _____(7) a smile. The fact _____(8) the children are calm is a testament to the winning ways of the photographer, _____(9) managed to get the best out of them despite a few tears earlier in the day.

charlotte-christening-mario_testino-2.jpg

The picture was _____(10) of four beautiful official portraits taken by Mario immediately _____(11) Charlotte's christening service _____(12) the nearby St Mary Magdalene Church. As well _____(13) a formal portrait of the royal family _____(14) the Duchess's family, the Middletons, Mario also took individual pictures of the proud parents, including a lovely snapshot of Kate cradling her daughter and another of William and George.

Releasing the photos _____(15) Twitter, Kensington Palace said: "The Duke and Duchess of Cambrige and their whole family had a wonderful day...They are very happy _____(16) share these photograps and hope that everyone enjoys them as much as they _____(17)."

charlotte-christening-mario_testino-3.jpg

AMAZING EXPERIENCE

Mario Testino, who had arrived at the Norfolk estate _____(18) helicopter, said later: "Photographing Princess Charlotte's christening was _____(19) amazing experience. What impressed me the _____(20) was the energy of the family and of that _____(21) the Duke and Duchess. One sees how solid they are together and one gets a sense of their strong family values."

"It was incredible to be able to document four generations of the British royal family _____(22) - the monarch and three heirs to the thone - and very heart warming to see the close relationship between _____(23) all.

Much has been made of the positioning of family members in the formal group portrait, taken in the drawing room at Sharingham after the 45-minute church service, _____(24) was attended by just 21 guests. The photo shows Kate _____(25) the centre, seated on a sofa with nine-week-old Charlotte on her lap, with William and George on one side and the Queen on the _____(26). Behind them are _____(27) Middletons - Michael, Pippa, James and Carole _____(28) the left, and the royals - the Prince of Wales, the Duchess of Cornwall and the Duke of Edinburgh - on the right. The two families have swapped sides from the official picture of George's christening, and grandmother Carole, it was noted, has moved to central position. In the background hang portraits of two other Princesses - the daughters of Edward VII and Queen Alexandra, Princess Victoria and Maud.

charlotte-christening-mario_testino-4.jpg

Perhaps the most spontaneous of the four portraits is the _____(29) and white shot of William and George who is caught giving a big, toothy grin - his first for an official picture.

Gorgeous George, who turns two this month, had displayed typical toddler behaviour for his sister's big day, waving to crowds, throwing stones, treading on his father's feet, peering _____(30) her pram and, at one point, having a little cry. But by the time he was back at "Nanny's house" - as William could be heard describing the Queen's Sandringham residence to his son - and scooped up in his father's arms for their picture, the tears had dried and he gave his most winning smile.

gameofthrones.jpg

START!

QUESTION#1: Have people who've not read the books heard of you?

(Hallottak rólad azok, akik nem olvasták a könyveket?)

  • YES!->GO TO Q#2  
  • NO!->GO TO Q#3

Q#2: Do you believe in finding a peaceful resolution to conflict?

(Hiszel a konfliktusok békés megoldásában?)

  • YES!->You are in House HUFFLEPUFF. In Hogwarts, you're a valuable part of the school's identity. In Westeros, you are lunch.hufflepuff.jpg
  • NO!->GO TO Q#4

Q#3: Do you like a nice glass of red wine?

(Szereted a finom vörösbort egy csinos kis kupában?)

  • YES!-> You are House REDWYNE (geddit?). Your sigil is a bunch of grapes and you really should be at a meeting.redwyne.jpg
  • NO!-> You are House MOOTON, and a touch dull. Maybe a drink would help.mooton.PNG

Q#4: Do you fancy your brother/sister?

(Tetszik a tesód? <3)

  • YES!->GO TO Q#5
  • NO!->GO TO Q#6

Q#5: Do you take an uncompromising view on the necessity of debt repayment?

(Hajlíthatatlan vagy az adósságok megfizetésének szükségessége tekintetében?)

  • YES!->You are House LANNISTER and you always pay your debts. Home to a handful of GOT's heaviest hitters namely Tywin (boo!), Jaime, Cersei and Tyrion (hurrah!). Plus Joffrey Baratheon (see incest question above).lannister1.jpg
  • NO!->You are House TARGARYEN. Generations of inbreeding have made you as mad as Clarkson, but who cares because you have dragons and, as they say in Juego de Tronos, their muy caliente, Mother, Daenerys.targaryen.png

Q#6: Ey oop! Is tha' Northern?

(Északon beszélnek így?)

  • AYE!->GO TO Q#7
  • NO!->GO TO Q#8

Q#7: Are you slightly rough around the edges, but basically likable? 

(Kissé csiszolatlan vagy, de általában véve szerethető?)

  • AYE!-> You are House STARK home to the closest thing Game of Thrones has to a decent set of coves: Ned, Catelyn, Arya, Sansa, Bran, Robb, not to mention the bastard Jon Snow. And Hodor.stark1.png
  • NO!-> You are House BOLTON, staunch believers that the family that flays together, stays together. Dead giveaway? Your "flayed man" sigil.bolton.jpg

Q#8: Are you comfortable around strong women?

(Jól érzed magad erős nők körében?)

  • YES!->GO TO Q#9
  • NO!->GO TO Q#10

Q#9: Do you have an approach to health and safety so casual it would make Qatari construction firms blush?

(Egészségtudatosságod és biztonságtechnikád láttán a Qatari építőipari cégek csak pirulnának?)

  • YES!-> You are House ARRYN. Crazy Lady Lysa may rule for her spoilt (still suckling) son, but she needs to get that enormous hole in the lounge floor sorted. Someone could have an accident with that.arryn.jpg
  • NO!->GO TO Q#11

Q#10: Can you make an exception for one woman in particular?

(Tudsz kivételt tenni, kifejezetten ha nő van a dologban?)

  • YES!-> You are House BARATHEON. From former top dog Robert to Thunderbird-puppet-headed despot Jeoffrey, Baratheon is a boys' club, except for Stannis' infatuation with Melisandre, aka The Red Woman.baratheon.png
  • NO!-> You are House FREY. Over 90 years old with seven wives and more than a hundred kids, Lord Walder Frey is arguably the most sexist git in Westeros. And there's some stiff competition for that title.frey.jpg

Q#11: Do you like mucking about on boats?

(Szeretsz hajón lófrálni?)

  • YES!->GO TO Q#12
  • NO!->GO TO Q#13

Q#12: Are you - even by Throne's standards - bastard-hard?

(Még a Trónok mércéjével mérve is kőkemény vagy?)

  • YES!->You are House GREYJOY. Those ironborn (including the rock-hard Yara/Asha) are more Grey than Joy. Notable member (no pun intended): Theon, whose torture had all male viewers crossing their legs forever.greyjoy.jpg
  • NO!->You are House TULLY. Here, under the sigil of the fish, you find Catelyn Stark, but, for a time also the annoying wandering minstrel called Marillion who has his tounge cut out. Fish? Marillion? Classic George R. R. bantz.tully.jpg

Q#13: Could your home be a venue for Gardeners' Question Time?

(Szolgálhatna az otthonod egy kertészeti interjúműsor helyszíneként?)

  • YES!->You are House TYRELL, ruling The Reach from Castle Highgarden. Here women have a monopoly on brainpower: see arch-schemer Lady Olenna and her granddaughter, Margaery.tyrell.jpg
  • NO!->You are House MARTELL, rulers of Dorne. No stained-glass ceiling for women here (the oldest heir runs things irrespective of gender) but the number one game in town is really, no really hating the Lannisters.martell.jpg

 NEPAL REELS AS TREMORS SYMIE RESCUE

nepal1.jpg

Death toll exceeds 5,500 while thousands are forced to sleep outdoors

A growing sense of despair spread through Katmandu _________ (1)Sunday as the devastated Nepali capital was convulsed by aftershocks that sent residents screaming into the streets, where they were pelted by heavy rain.

A day _________(2) an earthquake killed more than 6,600 people and injured __________(3) 5,900 residents grew frantic and the government, entirely overwhelmed by the enormousness of the challenge facing the country, struggled to provide relief, or much hope.

Streets in parts of this city of about 1.2 million were impassable not so much from quake damage but because tents of thousands of people have taken up residence there. It was a strategy endorsed by the government.

The country's prime minister, Sushil Koirala, who was attending a conference _____________(4) Indonesia when the quake struck, had rushed back __________(5) Katmandu and was to speak to his desperate countrymen in a televised address on Sunday. But the speech was delayed, as some relief efforts have been, by strong tremors that continue to rock the country.

The already difficult situation in much of the capital, where safe shelters are scarce, was made worse Sunday when rains began to pour down on huddled masses.

It is increasingly evident that authorities here were ill equipped to rescue those trapped and would have trouble maintaining adequate supplies __________(6) water, electricity and food.

"In my neighbourhood, the police are conspicious by their absence," said Sridhar Khatri of the South Asia Center for Policy studies in Katmandu. "There is not even a show of force to deter vandalism, which some reports say is on the rise."

On Sunday, the government began setting ____________(7) 16 relief stations across Katmandu and the rest of the country while rescue operations continued. The relief stations are expected  to ease distribution of water, food and medicine, said Laxmi Prasad Dhakal, a spokesman at the Ministry of Home Affairs.

Electricity has been intermittent at best in Katmandu, and absent entirely in other parts of Nepal, but that is not wholly unusual in a country where nighttime blackouts are routine.

Many hotels, commercial buildings and wealthy homes in the capital have their own generators. But nearly all of the country's gas and diesel supplies are brought in from India, and with traffic reduced to a crawl _________(8) major highways, those supplies could dwindle quickly. Some gas stations in Katmandu have already run dry; others are rationing their remaining supplies.

Thousands of Katmandu's residents squatted on streets throughout the city either because their homes were destroyed or continued aftershocks, including one of magnitude 6.7, left them too afraid to go back inside. Other residents were camping out in schools, school playgrounds and government offices.

The goverment announced that schools would remain closed ____________(9) at least five days and it pleaded with government workers to help in local rescue efforts in place of their usual jobs.

Stephen Groves, who lives in Katmandu, said he was inspecting a building for cracks when the biggest of many aftershocks hit, leading to terrified screams from those nearby.

"The whole time I was thinking if the building next to me was going to come ___________(10) on top of me," Mr Groves said in an email. "People here are in panic, and every aftershock contributes to that. They are not going indoors, they are staying in the roads and in open areas. Many are searching for family members.

Mr. Groves said he went to a hospital in the capital on Saturday, where hordes of people were lying on the ground outside the building, many __________(11) intravenous drips hooked up to their arms and shocked looks on their faces.

The city was awash with rumors that the worst aftershocks were yet to come and with fears of greater destruction in the countryside, large swaths of which remained unreachable by phone.

Subhash Ghimire, the editor in chief of Nepalese newspaper Republica, said he managed to reach his father in his village, home to about 3,000 people near the epicenter in the Gorkha district. "He said not a single house is left in our village, including our own house," Mr. Ghimire said.

On Mount Everest, helicopter rescue operation began Sunday morning to bring wounded climbers ___________(12) the mountain, where at least 18 climbers were killed and another 41 injured, making the earthquake the deadliest event in the mountain's history. Three Americans were ____________(13) those killed, according to the State Department.

Aftershocks and small avalanches throughout the day Sunday continued to plague the nearly 800 people staying at the mountain base camp and at higher elevation camps.

After posting on Twitter that he was "fairly safe but stuck" _________(14) the base camp, a climber, Jim Davidson, then provided a more alarming update from Camp 1, which is above the base camp. "Just had our biggest aftershock yet here at C1 on Everest. Smaller than original quake but glacier shook & avalanches," he wrote.

Nick Talbot, 39, was attempting to be the first person with cystic fibrosis to climb Mount Everest when a 100- to 200-yard wall of ice and snow came barreling toward him.

"I ran __________(15)" he said in an interview. "I thought, there's no chance I can get away. I just had my socks on. It knocked me ____________(16) the rocks. I got up and it knocked me over again." he said. He was evacuated ___________(17) helicopter Sunday afternoon. He returned ____________(18) anything but the clothes he was wearing. All of his belongings were buried by the avalanche.

"I'm sure there will have been many fatalities just because the scale of it," he said.

Tulasi Prasad Gautam, director general of Nepal's Tourism Department, said he feared that continued aftershocks had trapped more climbers. In addition to the dead and injured, nearly 25 climbers who had been en route Saturday to Camp 2 from Camp 1 are missing.

"Actually, the tents are still there for some 20 to 25 climbers who were heading __________(19) Camp 2 in the course of climbing practice, but they are not in contact", Mr Gautam said.

In a blog post Sunday, Eric Simonson of International Mountain Guides said the news from the Everest base camp "was quite bleak", and tha the company's encampment "has been turned into a triage center, and our big dining tents are now being used _________(20) hospital tents."

"The tons and tons of falling ice going this vertical distance created a huge aerosol avalanche and accompanying air blast," he wrote. "It is worth noting that over many expeditions we have never seen an avalanche from this area that was even remotely of this scale."

Susan Parker-Burns, a spokeswoman from the United States Embassy in Nepal, said in an email Sunday that a rescue and relief team from the United States Agency for International Development was dispatched by military transport to Nepal, and they would arrive on Monday.

Also Sunday, the Israeli military said that it was preparing to send Boeing 747s carrying 260 aid workers and more than 90 tons of cargo to Katmandu. About 600 Israelis are believed to be in Nepal, a popular destination for young backpackers after their compulsory military service. Magen David Adom, Israel's national emergency medical response organization, had already sent an advance team of 10 paramedics and two doctors to Nepal.

Nepal will most likely require significant help. The country's existing political discord is likely to hamper rescue and rebuilding efforts. The government has been barely functional for more than a decade, with politicians of just about every stripe fighting over the scraps of the increasingly desperate economy. A 10-year civil war _________ (21) Maoist parties and the government ended in 2006, but the resulting Constituent Assembly spent four years trying to write a constitution without success. Paralysis ensued until elections in November 2013 led to the unexpected rout of the previously dominant Maoists.

Nepal's people had already become exhausted with the political paralysis, but those feelings could turn explosive if relief and rescue efforts fail in the coming weeks, analysts said. The fear of just such an outcome could spur an intense international relief effort, as an odd collection of countries - including China, India and the United States - were already cooperating on pushing Nepal's polititians toward compromise.
