As you know, Vladivostok, the capital of the Primorsky region, occupies the peninsula of Murav’ev-Amursky which is washed by Amur and Ussuri gulfs. One part of this peninsula, called Egersheld (it was named after one of the explores of Russian Advantages and disadvantages of TV Far-East), is my native district. Egersheld is known from the foundation of Vladivostok. More then one hundred years ago the first houses for the seamen appeared in it. Since that time Egersheld is known as the working center of the city. Now, for example, the territory of Advantages and disadvantages of TV the commercial port is situated in this district. Egersheld is the most environmental friendly district in the city as it is open to strong sea winds which blow out all harmful substances in the air and clouds of dust. Of course, this has a negative side – the average temperature in Advantages and disadvantages of TV the district in winter is lower than in the other parts of Vladivostok. As my native district occupies very special geographical position (in fact, Egersheld – is a small peninsula of Murav’ev-Amursky peninsula) so its citizens may admire beautiful sea scenes every evening when the sun is hiding Advantages and disadvantages of TV for the horizon.

But TV has a lot of disadvantages. It takes a lot of time and it makes us lazy. And it's very harmful for our health, especially eyes. Some violent programs and films make people violent. Violence becomes a vital problem. There is too much advertisement on Advantages and disadvantages of TV TV. Sometimes it can encourage us to buy things we don't need at all.

In my opinion we need TV inspire of its disadvantages. People need something like Advantages and disadvantages of TV information center. As for me I watch TV about an hour a day. I watch it when I want to learn news or relax and entertain myself. People need TV, but it can't be the main thing in their life.

My Favourite TV Program

The most popular entertainment in our home life is television. We have a choice between five channels ORT, RTR and 3 commercial channels. There is also a cable TV station in our town.

Music and dances

JOHN LENNON

The he formed, The Beatles, changed pop music forever. From their first single, “Love Me Do) (a Lennon – McCartney composition), in 1962, people recognized something different in their music than the usual pop songs at the time. Their songs seemed more tuneful Advantages and disadvantages of TV, more exciting than what most artists were recording at the time. The Beatles were also more attractive than many other performers. Many more people began to listen to pop music than before. Soon, the group’s following was like nothing anyone had ever seen: a hysteria that the newspapers called Advantages and disadvantages of TV “Beatlemania” swept Britain and soon, America.

Their second single, “Please Me” reached number one in March 1963. When the media focused on the new group, it soon became clear that Lennon was not like other pop stars. His answers to reporters’ questions showed an unusual intelligence and sense of humour. His Advantages and disadvantages of TV character soon shone out: he always behaved in a completely different way than other people and hated artificiality. He was never quite comfortable with the Beatles’ “nice” image. In fact, it was Lennon who began to break away from this image and change the public image of the Advantages and disadvantages of TV Beatles. His and McCartney’s music changed and became more “psychedelic”. The Beatles were no longer those four clean-cut young men that even parents liked.

In 1966, Lennon met Japanese artist Yoko Ono. She was clever and eccentric, like Lennon, and the two soon fell in love. He loved Advantages and disadvantages of TV listening to her views on art and politics and admired her independent spirit. She brought something new to his life, and soon he found there was more he wanted to do on his own, or with Yoko, than he wanted to do with the Beatles. In 1968, he told the other Beatles Advantages and disadvantages of TV of his decision to leave, although the real split did not come until 1971, when Paul McCartney also decided their partnership should end. Lennon married Yoko Ono in 1969.

Of all former Beatles, Lennon мейд the most promising start as a solo artist. In 1971, he recorded the song by Advantages and disadvantages of TV which most people remember him today, “Imagine”. But in 1975 he stopped making records. For a while he and Yoko separated, partly because of the problems he was having with drugs and alcohol, but eventually he settled down with her again in New York. He also spent time trying Advantages and disadvantages of TV to become an American citizen, something which was not easy because of his outspoken political and social views. In 1980, a new, positive phase both in his private life and his musical career seemed to begin. But that soon came to an end on the street out-side of his home Advantages and disadvantages of TV one night in December 1980.
