Happy Birthday America!

4 07 2013

  • Today is Independance Day in the USA, the anniversary of the Declaration of Independance, written on July 4th, 1776. That’s when the 13 original British colonies became the United States of America.

 

  • WATCH

*The 4th of July across NYC in pictures.(The New York Times)

Have fun!

  • PS: Pour les 3èmes qui m’ont demandé plus d’articles traitant de l’actualité, voici un article du NY Times. (03/07/12) Il s’agit des célébrations du 4 juillet qui seront annulées dans plusieurs villes américaines à cause de la crise économique d’une part mais aussi à cause des nombreux incendies qui ravagent en ce moment plusieurs villes du Colorado. Bonne lecture! Les 5èmes peuvent comprendre beaucoup de mots sur le sujet étudié cette année.

Pour info, cancel = annuler. Si vous avez besoin de traduction, oubliez Google, allez ici.

  • Voici aussi The Famous International Hot Dog-Eating, qui a lieu chaque 4 juillet depuis 1916, et qui malheureusement ne montre pas l’indépendance des américains à la surconsommation et à la malbouffe… La compétition consiste à voir qui est capable de manger le plus de hot dogs en dix minutes…

Joey Chestnut ate 69 hotdogs this year! (The Guardian, 04/07/13)

Lucy Williams worked in an office near the city centre . She usually went for a walk in the park during her lunch hour. Nearly every day she saw a very old man who was always in the park on the same bench. He had white hair and a long white beard and a very contented expression. She sometimes nodded to him or said hello and he always smiled back very happily. One day, she decided to stop and speak to him.
‘Excuse me,’ said Lucy, ‘I often see you here. You always seem very cheerful and you’re never sick! What’s your secret for a long and happy life?’
‘My secret?’ asked the old man, smiling at her ‘I don’t have a secret.’
‘But how often do you take exercise?’ asked Lucy.
‘I never take any exercise, young lady.’
‘What about your diet? How often do you eat fresh fruit and vegetables?’
‘I hardly ever eat vegetables.’ he replied, still smiling,  ‘And I smoke almost all the time.’
‘That’s amazing!’ said Lucy. ‘How old are you?’
‘Thirty five,’ he replied.
