Advanced Instant Lesson "Russia's Saint and Savior?"
looks at what Russians think of their current
leaders. Is being a bare-chested macho man good for a
leader's public image?
And for a
different kind of leading, our Pre-Intermediate Instant Lesson
"Seeing-Eye Sheep and Goats"
has the heart-warming story of Sissy the blind horse,
who is guided everywhere at her new home on a ranch, by a team
of sheep and goats.
Very different resources, very
different topics but they will all help motivate your students

Dodging the "death tube" - tornado
Here are some safety
tips from experts on what to do if a violent twister,
dubbed "death tubes" by some, heads your way:
* If you are at home, find a reinforced, windowless area
like an interior bathroom, closet, crawl space or hallway.
Basements also provide good refuge, but stay away from
outside walls. Try to crouch under the stairs or a heavy
duty table to avoid falling debris.
* Be sure to protect your head and neck. "Put on a bicycle
helmet or a football helmet," said Harold Brooks, a research
meteorologist at the Storm Prediction Center of the National
Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. If you're in a
bathtub, another option is to cover up with pillows, sofa
cushions or a mattress.
* Do not open
your windows, and stay away from them.
* If you are
in a car in an urban area, don't try to outrun a
tornado, the Federal Emergency Management Agency
advises. If possible, seek shelter in a building. If
you're outdoors with no nearby shelter, lie flat in a
ditch or a depression. Cover your head with your hands.
"Don't stay in your car and don't park it under an
overpass," said Brooks.
* Stay away from trees and
cars if you are outside.
* Avoid shopping malls,
theaters and gymnasiums where the roof might only be
supported by walls, the Harvard Medical School warns.
