American football vs soccer
Football, American, distinct type of football that developed in the United States in the 19th century from soccer (association football) and rugby football. Played by professionals and amateurs (generally male college or high school teams), football is one of the most popular American sports, attracting thousands of participants and millions of spectators annually. The forerunner of American football may have been a game played by the ancient Greeks, called harpaston. In this game there was no limit to the number of players.
A foot fault is called if the server's foot enters the court before service is completed. After one fault a server may serve again. If both tries result in faults, a double fault is called, and the opponent wins the point. If the serve, on either try, touches the net and then falls into the diagonally opposite service box, a let is called, and the server is permitted to serve again. A valid serve that is not reached by the opponent is called an ace.
The 11 players of the offensive team work together to move the ball downfield toward their opponent’s end zone. They are divided into two groups: seven linemen, who play on the line of scrimmage (an imaginary line designating the position of the ball) and a backfield of four players, called backs, who stand in various positions behind the linemen. The lineman who is positioned in the middle of the line is called the center.

Sport in Our Life
Sport plays an important role in the life of many people. It makes people healthier and it’s a good way of spending free time.
Sport is good for health, but only if you are sport-lover. Professional sportsmen have a lot of injuries. A lot of people in Russia heard about the young Russian gymnast Masha Zasipkina who fell during coaching and injured her spine. It was a year ago. She was paralyzed, she had surgery and now she feels O.K. But she would never go to the gymnastic stage again.
One of the least dangerous kinds of sport is swimming. You can’t break your spine, leg, hand, etc. Of course, someone can say that you can sink in the swimming-pool, but I think it is less probable then breaking your nose in basketball.
In Russia is very long and cold, so people can’t afford to spend a lot of time in the fresh air. But if it is not very cold skiing and skating are a good way to stay fit.
If you ask anyone about health, practically all the people will say that ...
British plays, which typically reflected the attitudes and manners of the upper classes, were by then in conflict with more egalitarian American values. Despite this growing divergence, British actors, theater managers, and plays continued to cross the Atlantic Ocean with regularity, and most American plays copied British models until the early 20th century. For this reason some critics claim that American drama was not born until the end of World War I (1914-1918).
African American History.INTRODUCTION African American History or Black American History, a history of black people in the United States from their arrival in the Americas in the 15th century until the present day.
In 1996, 33.9 million Americans, about one out of every eight people in the United States, were black. Although blacks from the West Indies and other areas have migrated to the United States in the 20th century, most African Americans were born in the United States, and this has been true since the
Martin Luther King, Jr.Martin Luther King, Jr., emerged as a leader of the American civil rights movement after organizing the famous 1955 bus boycott in Montgomery, Alabama. Throughout his career he pressed for equal treatment and improved circumstances for blacks, organizing nonviolent protests and delivering powerful speeches on the necessity of eradicating institutional racial inequalities.
In 1963 King led a peaceful march between the Washington ...
THE SLAVE TRADE
Portuguese traders brought the first African slaves for agricultural labor to the Caribbean in 1502. From then until 1860, it is estimated that more than 10 million people were transported from Africa to the Americas. The great majority were brought to the Caribbean, Brazil, or the Spanish colonies of Central and South America. Only about 6 percent were traded in British North America.
Every week there could be a special attraction to the museum by having a chosen football player to share and teach people all over the world their tricks and pass on autographs. A sculpture of the players would be interesting as well. The material would have to be wax and they could have their football shirt numbers that they would play in a match with. These players wouldn't necessarily have to be from the past but from the present too.
Americanii, infometati de pamant, s-au aratat foarte reticenti la hotararea Marii Britanii de a crea o rezervatie Indiana ale carei limite nu puteau fi incalcate de colonisti. O influenta puternica asupra pozitiei americanilor a avut-o inlaturarea amenintarii franceze; aceasta insemna ca americanii nu mai aveau nevoie de protectia armatei britanice. In acelasi timp, guvernul britanic, incarcat cu datorii de razboi, hotaraste cresterea contributiilor coloniilor.

Modelul economic american si cel japonez
Toate acestea, nu ar constitui insa un avantaj in posesia altei economii deoarece nu fiecare stat este capabil sa isi organizeze, gestioneze si administreze resursele primare si secundare cu atat discernamant, cum o fac reprezentantii economiei americane. Pentru unii exista chiar si in acest moment banala intrebare “daca americanii au atat de multe resurse, mai ales in domeniul gazelor naturale si petrolului, de ce sunt pe primul loc in clasamentul tarilor importatoare de petrol, exportat de catre tarile Orientului Mijlociu ?”.
Uzinele canadiene au avut posibilitatea de a se specializa in cateva modele de autoturisme, cea mai mare parte a productiei lor fiind trimisa in SUA in schimbul unor modele care nu se produceau in Canada. In perioada 1965 - 1985 a avut loc o revolutie in atitudinea oamenilor de afaceri din Canada fata de comertul liber cu SUA; aceasta a fost considerata intr-o masura crescanda drept cea mai buna speranta pentru a deveni competitiv in economia mondiala. Anul 1985 marcheaza initierea informala a negocierilor Canada - SUA pentru un acord general de comert liber. Acesta intra in vigoare incepand cu 1 ianuarie 1991.
Orasele erau mici dar prospere; Philadephia era cel mai mare oras, cu o populatie de 40 000 de locuitori, urmat de New York, cu 25 000 de lcuitori. In nords existau multi comercianti, pescari si vanatori, iar in sud predominau proprietarii de plantatii; ar cea mai mare parte a colonistilor erau fermieri independenti ce-si lucrau propriul pamant; ulterior acest grup a avut un rol special in desfasurarea revolutiei americane.
Indiferent de motivatiile sale, daca bin Laden a fost in spatele ororilor atacului de la 11 septembrie trebuie pedepsit pentru uciderea atat de multor civili nevinovati. In acelasi timp este esential pentru noi sa stim de ce bin Laden si milioane de alti oameni de pe tot intinsul globului urasc atat de mult America.De ce atat de multi oameni sunt gata sa-si riste vietile pentru a ne lovi? Sper ca nici unul dintre cei ce citesc acest articol nu este atat de naiv incat sa creada ca milioane de oameni urasc America pentru ca noi suntem "liberi".
