Do you believe in ghosts?


There is no scientific proof that ghosts exist. But every culture in the world has stories about ghosts and haunted houses. The oldest known record of a ghost appears in an ancient tale known as The Epic of Gilgamesh, which is dated from around 2200 BC!
People believe that ghosts usually live in old and big houses and appear at night. They wear white clothes and don’t say anything. Ghosts can walk through walls. When a ghost enters a room, the room usually gets cold. Some people say that ghosts can read our thoughts.
A special kind of ghost is called a poltergeist. Poltergeist is a German word which means ‘a noisy ghost.’ They make lots of noise, move objects and sometimes throw them.
Some people believe that ghosts are people who are trapped between the living world and the world of the dead.

History of jeans


Everybody all over the world wears them- presidents, workers, students, pop stars… They will always be in fashion.
The first pair of jeans was invented by Levi Strauss.
The discovery of gold in California in 1848, made many ambitious young men rush there to strike it rich. Twenty-year-old Levi Strauss was one of them. He was a cloth seller in New York, and he took a few bolts of canvas cloth to sell on his journey to the West. In 1850 he reached the land of gold. It turned out that ‘up in the diggings’, where the miners worked, pants wore out very quickly. Levi took the canvas to a tailor and asked him to stitch a pair of pants. This is how the very first pair of jeans was made. The miners were the first persons in the world to wear jeans.
In 1886, Levi stitched a leather label on his jeans showing a pair of pants that were being pulled between two horses. This was to advertise how strong his jeans were.

Aztecs – American Indian people

Aztecs were American Indian people who ruled a mighty empire on the territory of modern Mexico during the 1400s and early 1500s. The Aztec Empire spread over 80,000 square miles (207,000 square kilometers).
Montezuma II was the last great Aztec emperor and ruled over 5 to 6 million people.
The capital city of the Aztec was Tenochtitlan. It was built on land that today is part of Mexico City. They conquered neighboring peoples to build up their empire. According to Aztec legend, the site of their capital city was chosen around the year 1325, when one of their holy men saw fulfilled the prophecy of their principal god, Huitzilopochtli: an eagle perched on a cactus, in some versions devouring a snake. The site was a small outcropping of rocks on the western edge of the southern part of Lake Texcoco. On this site the Aztecs began building their capital city, an island linked to the mainland by causeways, which they called Tenochtitlan (Place of the Cactus Fruit).

Ian Fleming, the man who invented James Bond, was a secret agent himself. Fleming worked for British Naval Intelligence.
After the war, Ian promised a friend that he would write ‘the spy story to end all spy stories.’ And he kept his promise.
In the early 1950s Fleming began a career as a writer with the publication of Casino Royale. His books were an instant sensation, with their mixture of high living, violence, and sex proving irresistible to readers.
Ian Fleming died in the early 1960s, but his most famous creation was already destined to outlive him.
The James Bond films are one of the most successful series of films in cinema history. They are known for a number of elements, including spectacular stunts, outrageous villains, and beautiful women.
The name James Bond and certain other phrases—license to kill, Agent 007 — have become synonymous with action, adventure, and a glamorous lifestyle.
