Try, try, and try again


Try, try, and try again. If tales of the rich and famous are anything to go by some of the world’s most successful people would never have made it if the gatekeepers and financiers had their way. This infographic shows some of the world’s creative geniuses and the difficulties they faced in bringing their work into public view.

Albert Einstein, the winner of the 1921 Nobel prize in Physics, was expelled from school and the Zurich Polytechnic refused to admit him. This didn’t set him back. He was of the belief that “Success is failure in progress”. Walt Disney dropped out of school and Vincent Van Gogh suffered from mental illness. Yet the names of these men resonate around the globe today.

Their inspiring stories show that if you have faith in your product, you can succeed and make a fortune despite initial failures–and these famous people are not alone. Unbelievably Steve Jobs was fired from Apple, the company that he’d created. Afterward, he said that it was the best thing that could have happened to him.

In the words of Bill Gates, a Harvard dropout and now one of the richest men in the world:

“It’s fine to celebrate success, but it’s more important to heed the lessons of failure.”

Earth our home Facts About Our Only Living Planet


Earth, the third planet from the sun, has been around for an astonishing 4.54 billion years. As far as we know, it is the only living planet in the Universe. This infographic shares some interesting facts about our astonishing planet.

Earth is a remarkable place that teams with life of every form, much of it still undiscovered. Of the more than 700,000 species estimated to be found in the oceans, only 242,000 of them have actually been discovered. That’s partly because much of the ocean is a deep, dark place that never sees the sun. Every year we add around 2,000 new species to the known life on earth.

Around 99% of the species that have ever lived on Earth are now extinct and that includes a large number of our own Hominid ancestors. The mighty dinosaurs and the massive mammals that followed all suffered an untimely end as conditions on earth changed.

Never has life on Earth been as compromised as it is now. According to Science Mag, more than 500 species of land-dwelling vertebrates have disappeared over the last 100 years and a further 500 could be lost in the next twenty. Humans have caused this modern extinction and only humans can save the exquisite biodiversity on earth.

The End Is Near: Doomsday, Would You Survive?

Perhaps you may have already questioned your survival skills and conjured up survival plans. After watching numerous end-of-the-world movies like I Am Legend and tv shows like The Walking Dead, we could say that it is highly unlikely for a zombie epidemic to occur, it is likely for floods, strong winds, or hurricanes to wipe out your power for weeks at a time. 

This infographic provides handy tips and facts on how to survive natural disasters. It states that less than 55% of Americans have less than a three-day supply of food stocked in their homes. Three days worth of non-perishable food is what FEMA recommends everyone have prepared for emergency situations. Before food, however, having a sufficient amount of water is the top priority in any natural disaster or post-apocalyptic catastrophe. 

Like the infographic, FEMA also recommends face masks to filter contaminated air and a basic emergency supply kit filled with road flares, waterproof matches, flashlight, batteries, and more. And like the infographic shows, it may be helpful to surround yourself with others who have valuable professional experience, like doctors or farmers.

By the time the public is hit by a natural disaster or learns about an epidemic, chaos soon follows. By then, it is too late to make preparations. So, be sure to stock up and be prepared for any situation that may occur.

US Elections

An election is a process in which people vote to choose a leader or to decide an issue.

The United States is a representative democracy, a country in which the adult citizens of the country vote to elect the country's leaders. These elected leaders make the governmental decisions. The leaders serve in office for a specific amount of time, called a term of office. Elected government officials include the president, US senators, US representatives, state senators, state representatives, state governors, city mayors, school board members, and many others.

Most US elections are held on the first Tuesday after the first Monday each November. Polling places (the locations where people vote) include schools, post offices, community centers, and other public places. Every four years, US voters elect the President of the United States.

Do or Make?... with Papa English


It can be hard to decide when to use 'make' or 'do' in English. Here's some help.

1: We use 'make' when we create or construct something. For example:

  • She made a cake.
  • I've made us some coffee.
  • Did you really make those trousers?

2: We use 'do' for general activities. In this case, 'do' is often used with 'something', 'nothing', 'anything' or 'everything':

  • What did you do at the weekend?
  • I didn't do anything yesterday.
  • She's fed up with doing everything herself. She needs some help.
  • Are you doing anything interesting during the holidays?

NOTE: 'What do you do?' means 'what's your job?'

3: There are many, many fixed expressions with 'make' and 'do'. Unfortunately, they don't really follow any useful rules, so you have to learn them. Sorry!

Here's a list: (download this list in PDF).

And click here for 'make' or 'do' exercise 1.
