Practical assignment: Discuss the problems of the text given below. Give your reasons while expressing your own view-point.


Albert Einstein, one of the greatest theoretical physicists, was once asked to explain the way in which a scientist works. "If you want to know the essence of scientific method, don't listen to what a scientist may tell you. Watch what he does". Similarly, if you would ask a hundred scientists to describe the methods of science, you would probably get a hundred different answers. But they would probably all agree with Einstein that science is a way of doing things, a way that involves imagination and creative thinking as well as collecting information and performing experiments. Facts by themselves are not science, but science deals with facts. The French mathematician, Poincare, stated in this way: "Science is built with facts just as a house is built with bricks, but a collection of facts cannot be called a science any more than a pile of bricks can be called a house".

London is the capital of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. It is one of the oldest and the largest cities in the world: London is 2000 years old. It grew up around two old historic cities: City of London and City of Westminster. City of London was founded by Romans in A.D. 43. It was a trading post of the Roman Empire. City of Westminster was founded 1000 years later. It was a residence of English kings.

Nowadays London is a modern town with office buildings and noisy traffic. There are three famous districts in London: the City, the West End and the South Bank.

The City is a famous financial district. Only 5000 people live there, but half a million people work there.

The West End is the centre of British government and night life. The government buildings are situated on a broad avenue called Whitehall. The house N 10 Downing Street is situated in the West End. It is the home of British Prime Minister. Soho is also situated in the West End. It is adistrict of restaurants and night clubs.

The South Bank is a modern cultural center. Theatres, concert halls and art galleries are situated there.

London is famous for its historical places. One of such places is the Tower. They say that London is a key to England and the Tower is a key to London. It was founded by William the Conqueror. At thattime it was a fortress, a palace, a state prison and a royal treasury. Now it is a museum. Many ravens still live near the Tower because their forefathers usually found blood there. There is a legend that the Tower will fall if it loses its ravens. The Tower is guarded by German Warders, popularly called "Beefeaters". There are two letters "E.R" on the front of their clothes. It is an abbreviation of the Queen's name Elizabeth Regina. Every time at 10 p.m. the Ceremony of the Keys takes place: warders lock up theTower for the night.

There are also such famous places in London as St. Paul's Cathedral, Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace and The Houses of Parliament. It is famous for its huge dome: it is 111 metres above the ground and it has a golden ball and cross on the top. You can also climb 263 steps to the Whispering Gallery, which is around the dome. It is called so because if you whisper on one side of the dome, someone can hear you well on the other side.

Buckingham Palace is the home of British kings and queens. Duke of Buckingham built it in 1703. And it is named after him. The Houses of Parliament is the home of British Parliament. Big Ben is the huge bell which is known throughout the world. It was built when sir Benjamin Hall was the commissioner of works. He was very tall, and Big Ben was named after him.

Trafalgar Square is named after Trafalgar Battle. It was a battle between English fleet and two fleets: French and Spanish. And British won.

There is the huge Nelson column there. Nelson was an admiral of British fleet who was killed in the battle. The column was built in his honour. There is a huge statue of Goratio Nelson on the top of that column. The column is 56 metres high.

But "Seeing is believing", and I wish you to go to London.
