Elephants and Tsunami
Tsunami is a huge way, caused by a chain-reaction that begins with an earthquake down in the sea's floor. The quake causes massive virbration, which leads to a huge wave that crushes on the coast lines. Science and technology has being trying to find ways to predict such earthquakes in order to warn people and save many lives. However, technology has yet found an enougth efficient device that will help in this goal. In 2004, a great Tsunami hited Thailand coast lines, which ended up in 300,000 victims. Just before the Tsunami hited, some elephants with tourist on them went crazy and ran away from the danger zone, and by that saved many lifes. Animals and their connection to Tsunami has been known for alot of time, since the 70's there were investigations about the subject. However, scientists remain skeptical, because there are yet no clear evidences showing how animals, or elephants in our case, can predict earthquakes. Although, there is no doubt animals do have some connection to predicting earthquakes, as the 2004 example clearly shows. The only question is when we will find the empirical evidence for their ability of predicting, and how will we use them in order to save many lives in the future.
Listening is one of the hardest skills to develop, mainly because of our behavior. We get bored quickly if we don't watch something interesting while listening. Therefore, many times we just don't know what the person is talking about, which makes it even harder to concentrate and listen.
I'm a good listener, probably because I don't get distracted easily. Although, I'm still having problems in some cases to listen, because some people just don't know how to talk so people listen. I believe that in order to make someone listen, you must have a conversation with him. That way you are not just talking, but also getting him into it as well. It also helps you to figure out whether he understands what you are saying or not.
Furthermore, some humor might spice up the listening a little bit, at least for me. There are many other ways, however one thing is without doubt – listening is a skill that we can improve.

From Eran Hundia, Israel
Iros Argaman, 59\4
My name is Eran Hundia. I am writing to you because I wish to recieve a visa in order to study accounting in the United States. I have finished 5 points accounting in my high school, Ort Guttman, and got a type B accounting degree from the ministry of occupation. I wish to learn in the United States for a degree in accounting, and then progress to tax consultation. The reason I want to learn in the U.S is because in Israel the market is tough - there are no jobs. My plan is to stay in the U.S for approximately 10 years, then I will decide whether I will move back to Israel or to Europe.
