There are lots of measures to be done to prevent our planet from pollution. We must plant greenery in big cities, we must remove factories out of the cities, we must create pollution control systems.
Besides everyone should remember three important rules: reuse, reduce and recycle. Public transport. I believe that public transport is very important in our everyday life because it is a convenient way to get to your destination. It is especially helpful for those who work in the city centres where taking a car is sometimes impossible. It allows them to have some independence and not always rely on a parent or another adult to drive them around.
While not always perfect, public transport is quite reliable. There are timetables which tell you when the means of transport run and since the same routes are followed, you have a rough idea of how long it will take to get to your destination.
Many people have their own cars, and while it might be easier to use them in the evenings and at weekends, I believe that public transport is the best alternative for everyday life. It is less expensive to use public transport than pay for petrol and car maintenance. What is more, if more people used public transport our city streets would be less congested and there would be less pollution.
So public transport is not only more economical, it also helps us protect our environment. Interesting places to visit in Russia. Tourism in Russia has seen rapid growth since the late times. As one of the largest countries in the world, Russia can provide tourists with a wide range of experiences, from amazing walks on its glacier-capped mountains, to unforgettable moments spent on the shorelines of the oldest lake in Europe. Besides, Russia is home to several cultural activities and historical sites that make it perfect for tourists in search for a great travel destination.
Most popular tourist destinations in Russia are Saint Petersburg and Moscow. One of the most popular tourist routes in Russia include a travel around the Golden Ring of ancient cities. The cities are famous for their rich history and ancient churches and have well the spirit of ancient and medieval Rus'.
Also, tourists can take part in some authentic festivals when visiting these cities. The host of Winter Olympics Sochi is known not only for its beaches and wonderful nature but wonderful ski resorts, like Krasnaya Polyana. This unique lake, oldest and deepest in the world, has crystal-clean waters and is surrounded by taiga-covered mountains. Typical souvenirs include Matryoshka doll and other handicraft, samovars for water heating, ushanka and papaha warm hats, and fur clothes among other items.
Russian vodka and caviar are among the food that attracts foreigners, along with honey, blini, pelmeni, borsch and other products and dishes of Russian cuisine. Russia is so large that diverse regions and ethnic cultures of Russia offer many different food and souvenirs, and show a great variety of traditions, like Russian banya, Tatar Sabantuy, or Siberian shamanist rituals. Your moments in Russia will be unforgettable, whether you spend your time exploring the Kremlin Wall in Moscow or riding a troika somewhere in central Russia.
Which places would you recommend to someone visiting Russia? Russian and British food. An English breakfast is a very big meal made up of fried food that is high in protein whereas the Russian blini and kasha are high in carbohydrates as they are made from grains. They are both better than leaving the house after only a quick cup of coffee. In both Russia and England there is traditional fast food that has been available for decades and it is available on the streets.
In Russia a traditional fast food is pirozhki which is a type of small pie, but in England people often eat fish and chips or just a portion of chips when they are out and about. Pirozhki are probably easier to eat than fish and chips when you are wandering around. Healthy Fast Food. People living hectic lives with busy schedules need to maintain good health and energy levels.
Snacking on seeds, fruit and nuts can help maintain high energy levels. Nature has provided these neatly packaged. Take a banana for example, simply unpeel it and you have a very healthy snack that contains no fat, sodium or cholesterol. Bananas contain minerals and vitamins that help control blood pressure and are good for the muscles in your body. Many athletes snack on bananas when they are competing because they are also easy to digest.
If you are looking for more than just a snack, you can still choose fast food if you choose wisely. In fact there are hidden benefits in many fast foods. For example, Japanese sushi and sashimi have high levels of omega-3 oils which are good for the heart and the brain. Eating habits in your country. What are traditional Russian foods and dishes?
How often do you eat out? What do you like eating? I am going to talk about eating habits in my country. However we do eat different things too! For breakfast, we might have a bowl of kasha which is a type of porridge or eggs or even a sandwich with a cup of tea or coffee.
Soups are very popular in Russia and we have soups for every season and every occasion. Salads are also popular and depending on the season these could be made from cabbage or pickled vegetables and may include meat, fish or eggs with a dressing of mayonnaise. These foods are. These days more people do eat fast foods for convenience though, especially in the big cities and this is not so healthy. Personally I prefer to eat at home generally, because home cooking is better, and you know what is in it.
For special occasions we sometimes go to a restaurant. In the city there is a wide range of restaurants offering food from all over the world. We like to try different international cuisine for special occasions. I love eating blini too and whenever there is a holiday we make lots of them. If it is a very special occasion we put caviar on them and they are simply the best.
How to save energy at home. There are a number of ways to save energy in the home. Firstly, when you leave a room always turn the lights out to save on electricity. Also, keep the thermostat at a reasonable temperature to save on heating.

These vary from person to person according to their circumstances but everyone feels stress at some time. To balance this, we need to spend time on leisure activities which help us relax. Doctors say that when we relax, our bodies can repair any damage the stress causes. Leisure activities such as team sports or clubs give us the opportunity to spend time with other people who share the same interest.
We all need the support and friendship of other people and it is important to find time to develop our friendships and spend time with other people. If we do not do this we can become lonely and feel isolated. Not only are leisure activities a good way to socialize but they can also be educational; for example learning to play a musical instrument or a craft. Learning how to do it is interesting and can be fun and as we become more skilful we enjoy a sense of achievement.
A skill can always be improved and we can enjoy the pleasure of making something or playing music for ourselves and for others too. I enjoy swimming and playing badminton, they keep me fit and make me feel full of energy. I also enjoy reading as it is a great way to lose myself in another world and forget about my problems. A good film also does the same and if I have been studying a lot I find watching a film very relaxing.
Sport is probably as old as the humanity itself. It has been developing with the developing and growth of the mankind. All over the world people of different ages are very fond of sports and games.

The desire of people to look like their favourite movie star or supermodel has prompted an almost endless list of celebrity-endorsed diets. But no nutritional programme has gained quite so much attention as the world-famous Atkins Diet.
The basic idea of the diet is quite simple. Our bodies burn carbohydrates first. So the Atkins scientists say that if we cut down on these carbohydrates, our bodies will search for other forms of energy to burn instead.

Food and nutrition expert Peter Bennet reports on his trip to a pretty fishing village on one of the islands of Okinawa, Japan, to find out why the people there live so long.
When I first met Makato Okushima, I would have said she was seventy-five, perhaps eighty years old. She is just one of more than people there who are at least one hundred years old; Okinawa has the highest and healthiest concentration of centenarians in the world. As well as the fish, there were portions of sweet potato, spring onion and other fresh, locally grown vegetables.
There was also plenty of brown rice and tofu — a soya product high in protein and vitamins. On other days there might be a meat dish too, but the fat would be continuously poured off the meat as it cooked. After the meal we drank green tea, which is said to have many health benefits and helps burn calories, as well.
I asked Makato what she thought the secret to her good health was. On my last day, Makato took me to the outskirts of the village.
