MOLLY MALONE, Do you know her?

curiosities

Molly Malone is a popular song set in Dublin (Ireland) which has become the unofficial anthem of Dublin City. The Molly Malone statue in Grafton Street was unveiled by then Lord Mayor of Dublin, Alderman Ben Briscoe during the 1988 Dublin Millennium celebrations, declaring 13 June as Molly Malone Day. 

If you are going to visit Ireland you must see this popular sculpture. This statue called Molly Malone is a symbol for the Dubliners. It's also called “Cockles and Mussels” and it' in the center of Dublin. Molly Malone is the name of the main character of an Irish popular song, it has become the unofficial anthem of Dublin City because there was another one. It was made in 1880 by James Yorkston and it has became in an urban legend.

The song is about a beautiful woman who sold fish in the streets fisherwoman, called Malone. It says that she died in the street, and that she sang very well saying "Fresh cockles and mussels!". They say that she was a shopkeeper in the morning an a prostitute at night.

We are not 100% sure, but it is said that a statue was made in the middle of Dublin in Grafton Street in her memory, and in my opinion it´s a beautiful statue which represents Irish people.

“Everyone should learn English”

Reasons to learn English

            It’s true that everyone should learn English nowadays, but we also admit that Spanish is the third most spoken language in the world, just behind the English and the Mandarin. Therefore, the more languages we can speak better.

            On the one hand, if you want to go to South America, all people speak Spanish (except Brazil, where Portuguese is spoken). For that reason Spanish is very useful if you want to go there and you don’t have to learn other languages.

            On the other hand, Spanish isn’t useful for economy and science, because as English is the language experts tend to use it in these areas. So, Spanish is not as important as English. And another aspect to bear in mind is that if you want to part to any part of the world, people will usually be able to speak English with you because it’s an international language.


            In conclusion there are advantages and disadvantages, but the truth is that Spanish is spoken by millions of people and that it isn’t very useful for economy and science.

Reforms in Venezuela

Venezuela cuts red tape on imports of essential goods.


Supermarket customer in Venezuela, June 13Many Venezuelans have complaied of shortages of food and other staples

I've read some articles about the food shortages citizens in Venezuela. So, Nicolas Maduro has made an announcement. He has set up new economic policies to tackle the country's shortages. He said that there isn't enough food in the supermarkets. He has also set up an telephone hotline like in Spain do that citizens can report illegal activities.

How is Rafael Nadal!

Rafael Nadal has done it again and this time on hard court. What an incredible match and what an amazing season for him!!!!

  • Nadal Beats Djokovic to Win U.S. Open

  • Rafael Nadal beats Novak Djokovic to win U.S. Open

  • US Open final: Rafael Nadal beats


    • His 13th Grand Slam!!!!! and remember his record of 26 Masters 1000



      In my opinion I think Nadal was and is the best player in the world. He has 13 Grand Slams and 26 Masters 1000. He has arrived almost always at the final of all the tournaments that he has played after his injury. Although it isn't the most important thing, the most important thing is how he's winning the tournaments. He's playing like I've never seen him in many years.All in all Djokovic played really well, but Nadal played better than him (6-2, 3-6, 6-4, 6-1). The best point was of 54 shots!!!, it was also the longest. Nadal in going to be the mumber 1 in the next tournament, I wish.
