Everyone needs a holiday, both to relax and to have a change of environment. The holiday makers feel relaxed and refreshed at the end of the holiday and look forward to the resumption of their duties, be it at school, office or factories, with renewed vigour. This is the reason why all establishments grant their employees annual leave. With the end of the Academic year the schools and universities grant their pupils a long holiday during mid-summer. This was last until early September when the new school term starts. Of course the parents will like to take advantage of this and take their leave to coincide with the children's vacations. This has become a traditional holiday season in most European countries particularly in England.

With the coming of August, the traditional holiday season in Britain reaches its peak point and most of the holiday resorts are packed to capacity. In order to avoid the crowd, some prefer to take their holiday a little easier if facilities so warrant. Those who have already taken their holidays can console themselves not only with reflections on the happy days spent in the country, at the seaside or abroad, but also with the thought that holiday expenses are over for the year and that by taking an earlier holiday they have missed the August rush. 

The main thing, of course, is the weather and that it would be hazardous to prophesy. But whatever the weather is like, the essence of a holiday for mot is the carefree atmosphere in which it can be enjoyed. "Take all you need but leave our worries behind" is the sound advice for the holiday maker. Private worries are not always easy to escape from. However, even the pessimist would admit that for the moment things appear brighter than they have been. 

Holiday time is surely a time for shedding serious pre-occupations and seeking the pleasures that appeal to us. It is true that we may not always succeed in finding them, indeed there are people who maintain that the great thing about holiday it gives you an ampler appreciation of home comforts 'a view no doubt more widely held among the elderly than you.

1. Today there is a lot of talk about the environment. All nations are coming to an
agreement to save planet earth. Like we pollute the earth, we pollute the water;
we also pollute the subtle environment through our negative feelings and emotions.
We have become a victim of our environment. We are not in control of our mind.
We hear a lot about other things in life but we spend very little time to hear about
ourselves. How to handle our mind? How to be in present moment? How to be
happy and be grateful? This we not learnt. This is the most unfortunate thing.
Then, what is the solution? This is where we miss a very fundamental principle
that governs our environment, our mind, our emotions and our life in general
2. Our body has the capacity to sustain much longer the vibrations of bliss and
peace than it does negative emotions because positivity is in the centre of our
existence. Just like in the structure of atom, protons and neutrons are in the
centre of the atom and electrons are only the periphery, same is with our lives;
the centre core of our existence is bliss, positivity and joy, but it is surrounded by
a cloud of negative ions. Through the help of the breath, we can easily get over
our negative emotions in a short period of time. Through meditation and certain
breathing techniques, we can clear this negative cloud.
3. This life has so much to offer to you. You can see this once you take some time
off, rejuvenating the soul. Your soul is hungry for a smile from you. If you could
give this, you feel energised the whole year and nothing, whatsoever, can take
the smile away from you.
4. Everyone wants to be successful in life. But without knowing what is success,
you want to be successful. What is the sign of success? Just having a lot of
money, is that success? Why do you think money means success? Because money
gives you freedom so that you can do whatever you want. You may have a big
bank balance but you have stomachaches, ulcers, you may have to go for bypass

Read the following passage carefully:

?

The primary argument supporting cell phone control in the classroom is the fact that phones can be distracting. Not only do cell phones distract instructors, but they may also distract students trying to pay attention to the lecture. This is the same effect as a moviegoer looking at his phone in a theater. Even if the phone makes no noise, the light from the screen is enough to catch someone?s attention.

?

Arguments against cell phone control typically focus on safety concerns. Should a crisis occur in the classroom, students should have their phones on hand to make a call. If a student has a child, he or she may need a phone in case of a medical emergency. If the student is on call for work, he or she will need access to a phone. The list of exception-worthy scenarios is endless.

?

The?best solution is to create cell phone usage rules that allow devices to be accessible without disturbing other students? educational opportunities. Students should be permitted to keep their phones in their bags, pockets, or other belongings as long as the phones are on silent in class. Vibrate settings may be permitted if the instructor does not believe it will distract him or her, since the noise of the vibration may not be noticeable in a large classroom. If a student needs to answer the phone during an emergency, he or she can step out of the classroom to do so. This setup would give the students and the instructor peace of mind.

?

Cell?phone restrictions in classrooms should also include specific disciplinary actions for breaking the rules. If a student is caught using the phone in class, he or she should be excused for the rest of the day. Professors should refrain from physically taking possession of a student?s phone because of liability conflicts. If the phone is damaged while in the professor?s possession, the school or the instructor could be held responsible for the repairs. It is safer to ask the student to leave the classroom than it is to take the phone away completely.
