The team encouraged Peterborough motorists to cycle
Major aime at cutting carbon emissions
A nationwide advice: switching to greener forms of travel could help break Britain's dependency on the car.
The idea is that many people are receptive to suggestions they could travel more greenly but simply don't know how.
Practical advice: reams of maps( new cycle map), timetables.
Of course simply stopping people from travelling as much would have the same effect but government acknowledges that this could damage the economy. A failur to tackle climate change itself could have economic consequences.
A new high speed rail line from London at least as far as Birmingham may be needed to improve crowded transport.
London to Glasgow trains are becoming increasingly crowded
Motorway widening is already going ahead. However, the priority must be to remove the bottlenecks from the network. Manchester is a front-runner to be the second congestion charging area in Britain after London.

The flu vaccination does not reduce hospital admissions among the elderly, reported four newspapers (24 October 2007). Some newspaper headlines overstate the results of a reliable study which found flu vaccination had no effect on whether over-65s with respiratory illness needed to be hospitalised.

Technology has made such dramatic advances in the past decade that by the year 2050 who knows what changes will have taken place. It is quite likely that by 2050 we will have used up most of the earth’s natural resources and so we will be relying on wind power and hydropower for our energy needs. As a result of this shortage of energy, it is quite probable that scientists will have found a way for us to live outside the earth. By the next century it’s possible that people will be living in cities on the Moon or perhaps in cities on the seabed. It is to be hoped that scientists will have discovered cures for fatal diseases such as Aids and due to the advancement of genetic engineering, hereditary diseases passed down from generation to generation will no longer exist.
It is quite possible that by 2050 life expectancy will have increased to 100 and that we will be able to enjoy a healthier existence than is now possible. Another area likely to have been further affected by technology in the year 2050 is education. In schools, computers will have replaced teachers and many students will stay at home to complete their education. We will see changes in the work-place too. The two main areas of employment will be the so-called creative and caring professions, and the disappearance of jobs in manufacturing will result in massive unemployment.

British Airways is to install (formal arrange) mini-cameras in every part of their planes. They hope this will reduce the threat of terrorism and also deter passengers from behaving violently and causing trouble on the flights. If passengers become violent or abusive, due to too much alcohol for example, their behaviour will be monitored by cameras and then will be used in court if they are prosecuted.
BA is planning/plans to start the scheme next year. The first trial starts in January.
By the end of the year they will have installed cameras in 60% of their planes. They hope that anti-social behaviour in planes will have been cut dramatically by the end of the year.
Some passengers object to the plan. They feel it will invade their privacy and it could be miss-used if films fall into wrong hands. They plan to campaign against the scheme.

Nurses to decide on resuscitation
Until now only consultants and GPs were allowed to decide on resuscitation.
The guidelines were issued by the British Medical Association (BMA), the Royal College of Nursing and the Resuscitation Council.
The Patients Association welcomed the move, saying nurses were better placed than doctors to know patients' wishes.
Death with dignity
The Resuscitation Council said resuscitation may only work in 5% of cases, and that the guidelines aim to avoid "undignified and unnecessary" resuscitation of patients who would not benefit from it.
The guidelines recommend that only "suitably experienced" nurses should be able to make the judgement.
The Resuscitation Council said that through television dramas people had been led to believe the resuscitation procedure is both more effective and more pleasant than it is in reality.
"The survival rate may be as low as 5% in certain individuals. The outcomes are extremely variable but they are nothing like what we see on TV.
A Patients Association spokesman said: "Nurses have always been closer to patients who are severely ill than doctors.
"They will know more about the personality of the patient and their attitude towards death during a severe illness."
Nick Moore, of Dignity in Dying, which campaigns for greater patient choice at the end of life, called the changes "common sense".
"Unnecessarily resuscitating a patient in the last weeks of their life can often prolong suffering," he said in a statement.
However, in the case of someone being brought to hospital from the street, a clinical judgment would still have to be made without that information.
The Patients Association spokesman said: "End of life is inevitable for all of us. We need to be reassured that we can reach it and die with dignity in as much comfort as possible with the respectful care of qualified health professionals."

Henry the eighth, King of England, was a tall and handsome young man, who liked horse riding, tennis, writing and playing music. He wrote many beautiful songs and had a wonderful singing voice.
When he was older, he became very fat. He had a very bad leg, and often couldn't walk. And when his leg hurt, he was always angry.
He married six times because he wanted a son to be king after him. His one son, Edward VI, died just before he was sixteen.
Henry VIII is famous in England's history because he broke with the Pope and the Catholic Church, and started the Church of England.
In 1547 he became very ill and died. His three chrldren, Edward, Mary and Elizabeth, all became King and Queen after him. None of them had any children so Henry's family came to an end.
Elizabeth was Quenn of England for forty-five years. This was the time of Shakedpeare and Sir Walter Raleigh. Elizabeth was a great Queen, but she never married, and had no children. When she died, a Scottish King became King of England.
Katherine of Aragon:" I wanted to so much to give you a son, but God's plan for us was different, and we cannot change that."
Anne Boleyn was very clever, " During the last few weeks my life has been hard, I wanted you to take me away from this terrible prison. I ask one last thing. Please be kind to our daughter Elizabeth."
That was very quick! King married Jane Seymour just ten days after Anne's death. " I was very much in love with you. I have given you a son, and I can die happy, knowing that Edward will be king after you."
Anne of Cleves married Henry because King wanted to please the Germans.
When Katherine Howard married Henry just in her eighteen, and soon she died in her twenty.
Catherine Parr " I was thirty-one years old and Henry didn't really want a wife, he wanted a friend, and a nurse, and a mother for his three children."
Pope: head of Roman Catholic Church
mistress: sexual partner of a married man
miscarriage: unintentional ending of pregnancy

There are several methods of moving around Taiwan. Depending on the cost, one can take the areoplane which is the fastest and the most expensive way. Besides, train is another cheap and comfortable choice if you are not rushed. Next choice and chosen by many people is taking the long-distance-bus which has longer, flexible seats, and people no longer feel tired in seven hours' trip. Furthermore, if you want to travel fast but you are afraid of the height, now you can take the high-speed rail. From Taipei to Kaoshong takes you only 40 minutes and people never worry about the traffic jam.
In brief, transport plays an important role in our daily life. It makes life efficient.

Last summer some friends and I arranged to go camping. We had been looking forward to going for weeks when finally the date of departure arrived. We loaded the car with our luggage and set off early in the morning. The weater was perfect, the sun was shinning bughtly and the wind was blowing gently(background describing). There was not a cloud in the sky! Shortly afterwards, while we were travelling along the motorway, we noticed that the car was making a strnge noise. Pete, who had been driving/was driving very fast, suddenly stopped the car. Everyone got up and went round to the back of the car. To our surprise the boot was wide open- whoever had loaded the luggage had not loaded it properly, and eveything had fallen out!
When she was growing up Beatrix Potter was very fond of animals and had been always drawing pictures of her pet rabbit. She earned a living as an illustrator for several years before her dream of becoming an author came true. It was the result of a letter she had sent to a sick child decribing the adventures of four rabbits. She published it later as "The Tale of Peter Rabbit". It became an instant success and more tales followed. By the time Beatrix died. She had written over twenty-five tales and had achieved recognition as one of the greatest children's writer.

In the beginning....
I've found almost everything ever written about love to be true. Shakespeare said "Journeys end in lovers meeting. " What an extraordinary thought. Personally, I have not experienced anything remotely close to that, but I am more than willing to beieve Shakespeare had. I suppose I think about love more than anyone really should. I am constantly amazed by its sheer power to alter and define our lives. It was Shakespeare who also said "love is blind". Now that is something I know to be true. For some quite inexplicably, love fades; for others love is simply lost. But then of course love can also be found, even if just for the night.
And then, there's another kind of love: the cruelest kind. The one that almost kills its victims. Its called unrequited love. Of that I am an expert. Most love stories are about people who fall in love with each other.
But what about the rest of us? What about our stories, those of us who fall in love alone? We are the victims of the one sided affair. We are the cursed of the loved ones. We are the unloved ones, the walking wounded. The handicapped without the advantage of a great parking space!
Yes, you are looking at one such individual. And I have willingly loved that man for over three miserable years! The absolute worst years of my life! The worst Christmas', the worst Birthday's, New Years Eve's brought in by tears and valium. These years that I have been in love have been the darkest days of my life.
All because I've been cursed by being in love with a man who does not and will not love me back. Oh god, just the sight of him! Heart pounding! Throat thickening! Absolutely can't swallow! All the usual symptoms.
Amanda: Sex makes everything more complicated. Even not having it, because the not having it... makes it complicated.
Graham: That's why it's better to have it... some say.
Iris, if you were a melody... I used only the good notes.
Amanda: So now I'm just gonna kiss you for the millionth time and say 'Be seeing you'.
