» Pupils at my school recently put on an assembly about the past, telling their peers and parents what the '50s, '60s, '70s and '80s were like. The information presented included coverage of atomic bombs, racism, music, trends and sport. One of the things they mentioned was that people used to watch movies on a VCR (videocassette recorder) and that you could use it to record songs and videos! It started me thinking about what has changed over the course of not only my life, but theirs, too. Most of the pupils in the performance were born in 1999, and since then, the mobile phone has become a hand-held computer, and something the size of a fat credit card can hold thousands of songs.
» Oil is always in the news for some reason or another, whether for fluctuating barrel prices, oil-rig fires, or tanker crashes and leaks. Recently, it is because of the gigantic semi-submersible Mobile Offshore Drilling Unit (Modu), called Deepwater Horizon, that exploded on April 20, resulting in millions of litres of crude oil gushing into the pristine waters of the Gulf of Mexico. The oil rig is leased by BP Plc, fka British Petroleum, a British-based global energy company.
