THE BANS OF SMOKING ARE 

INCREASING!

Resultado de imagen de parodias sobre la ley de los cigarrillos electronicos en galesNot long ago smokers could smoke in bars. Before that, even students had the possibility to smoke at school, like their teachers. However, this won’t happen again, because it is prohibited. Moreover now, you need to be at a certain distance of hospitals or schools to smoke. This new ban in Wales that says that electronic cigarettes will be banned in bars is another example of this change in the world of smokers. But, why does it happen?

On the one hand, I personally agree with the new law in Spain that banned smoking in bars, because I was very annoyed when I was in a bar and when I went out all my clothes had this disgusting smell of tobacco. It’s true that I can’t stand the smell of tobacco, but I think that if you want to smoke there are more places to go.

On the other hand, I think that electronic cigarettes aren’t as bad as normal cigarettes, so I don’t mind if smokers want to use them. I don’t know if they are better than the normal ones, but it’s true that they don’t smell like the others. I only know that they use steam instead of tar, tobacco..., so they should be better.

All in all, I think that now people are more conscious about the issues of smoking than before. Nevertheless, I would never understand why people continue smoking, if they know what they contain, because I will never smoke something that contains the same materials as a road. It’s crazy!

How can we contribute to preserve

 the environment?

My aim composition is to write about the different forms to preserve the environment. People aren’t really conscious of the negative effects humans can have on the environment. We will find solutions as long as we all become aware of the problem.

First of all, as I have just said, we need to be conscious of the issue. One of the main problems that we have is that we throw away a lot of rubbish, because we think that afterwards, someone else will come and clean all the streets. And this is an irresponsible action to do when you’re an adult and you have children since you give a terrible example to them. This problem is very common in Spain, so I reckon that we have to change. Another important factor to take into account is that we have to change is the fact that we waste a lot of water when we are having a bath or brushing our teeth, and water is not infinite.

Being aware of the problem and the changes we have to carry out in the way we behave, we can now think about the possible contributions that we could try to preserve our environment. One important thing that we can do is recycling all we can, so as to have the possibility to reuse all the materials we can in the future. For instance, and referring to the case of water, we can have a shower instead of having a bath or using the dishwasher instead of washing up the dishes with your hands because it has been proved that less water is required.


All in all, I think that nowadays we are more conscious about this issue than in the past, because there are more campaigns and protests against big companies (that pollute a lot). Anyway, no solution will be found unless we all make an effort.

Je suis Charlie!

It's a well known fact that there are a lot of radical people in all religions, but Europe is suffering from the radicalism of the Muslim religion. We have to take into account that Spain has also been affected by an attack of the Muslim radicalism, on 11th March, 2004. I was only seven years old, but I remember that the government said that it was ETA, and afterwards they apologised because they were wrong, it was done by a group of radical Muslim people. But, why did they do it? Were they conscious of the damage they were causing?

It’s true that in Africa they are suffering these attacks every day, and we have only paid attention when it has happened in France, so we should have paid more attention to the problem before. Moreover, despite the fact that we must have freedom to paint or to draw what we like, if we paint something that is not allowed in the Muslim religion we have to deal the consequences. I’m not justifying their crimes, but I think that we must respect other religions. 

However, when you are killing people, when you attack another country, when you think that a joke is an offence for your religion..., you are mad. We are in the 21st century, we aren’t in the Middle Ages, we are civilized people, we have laws, we can’t go to a French satirical seminar and kill people only for a joke.

In my opinion, I think that Muslim people are the most affected in these cases, because they are suffering the radicalisms of their religion and they are innocent. But now, it’s the time to be strong and be together against this type of people.
