Using the verb "Stop"

Stop + -ing form or stop to-infinitive. How we have to use that verb?

Hello, I hear from a lot of people that our life is very tiring and boring, but our ancestors had a life that was the hardiest we can image: in fact, when they were alive, there weren't all the services that we find today: health, for example, was much more hard to care and all the babies were born at home with the help of a midwife that for the first period after the birth helped their mother to take care of each one of them. There weren't fast cars as today, but only chariots and all the anima

Advertisements And Polishing Criminals

Facebook and twitter were created firstly for communicating between people. The communication, exchanging information, and overspreading knowledge were very acceptable social media goals. These sites used to offer great opportunities for users to express themselves, share their thoughts and take part to form a new community.

I was Deleted

That was a deserted place, very big and horrifying. At a far distance, there was a narrow path covered in fog. The sky was overcast with stars and there was also the moon, even then there was darkness all around, the stars and the moon were dim. I was walking on the narrow path the yonder end of which seems to go nowhere. There appeared another narrow path from nowhere..........she was standing far away........may be at the distance of eternity. All at once the distance between me and her vanish

How to use the word "DEAR"

Hello, my dear members of MyEC.

Often, I see members here write or say,
"How are you, dear?"
"Come on dear!"
"Have a nice day, dear."
"What is going on, dear?"
... and so on and on.

A friend of mine, a native English speaker, told me once she does not understand why people say so. I had to smile because I knew why she found it crazy that people who are not close to each other (they are no lovers, family members or very close friends) do call someone in that way.

That made me write this post.

Sheer Determination

She aims at her target like a big prize for the day, but still wary what might cause the delay. Could there be something lurking underneath the trees? Perhaps there’s a green-eyed monster waiting for her to ambush. Should she pursue it and risk her life? But the woodland is enchanting and the tropical weather is inviting. Nonetheless, her tummy is getting numb. She needs to act as fast as she can.

Eyeing for the gold comes to her mind. She doesn’t want her chicks to die in hunger, nor return to

What  is Cricket ?

Cricket is a bat-and-ball game having eleven players of both sides. One is bating side and other is blowling. They rotate their inings / turn.
