Danny's Challenge: Let's Travel in Time

If I could travel back in time I'd like to go to France in the year of 1906 and the United States in the year of 1903.Then,could you ask: what encourages me to wish to visit these countries in the last century? I readily answer you: find out the historical truth!

Most of you cannot know that between these years there were several little-known scientists trying out flying in equipments heavier than air, that is to say, there…

Danny's challenge. Expulsion of Non Christians in Spain.

When I was a child, history was not my strong point and never had high marks, however in my adulthood it's becoming so interesting. Curious, right? :D at least never is too late to learn.



Well, if I could travel back in time I'd choose the year 1492. In this year happened not only the event I guess all we know but also the expulsion of Jews and Arabics in Spain. This time was turbulent and so rough here and I think that laws which were settled in this year paved the way to the future… Continue

Blog Challenge: Sentence Structure

Yes, it makes sense to know sentence structure since a blog or an article is made of sentences - only when you can make sentences can you compose a piece of writing. 

Indeed, there are just 4 types of sentences: simple sentence, compound sentence, complex sentence, compound-complex sentence. For…

Some Contribution to My New Challenge

My friends, I have written my story to demonsrate the use of idioms. It is a true story. Enjoy and learn!

Well, I often run myself into the ground overworking and taking to heart what isn’t worth a bean. But about 3 years ago I decided to reward myself and bought a very good expensive car I had always dreamt about. It was just an ordinary spring day I will never forget, it was already hot and rainy and I decided to get to work by my new car I was still running in. It was…

On My Blog: Magic Pills

Well, most of my EC friends know that I am a chemist and when it comes to inventions I will speak about chemistry as it is my GODESS! My students often ask me why I don't invent some magic pills for them not to learn, but to take such pills before going to bed and to wake up being as knowledgeble as their teachers. I always say they can compose them themselves if they learn at least a little. But today I'd like to speak about some other magic pills we all need to take from time to…

Blog Challenge: Memory of MyEC 2016

The year of 2016 was started without Tara Benwell's presence in this wonderful site, MyEC. I was wondering how this site would run without her writing challenges or her encouragement for new members. Although her activities were not that much, she came once to thrice a week, but this beautiful admin always left good atmosphere here. The bloggers seemed quite thrilled to write various topics of blogs.…
