There are fifty states in the United States of America. Two of these states, Alaska and Hawaii, are not connected to the other states. You can see it on this map. The US is washed by the Pacific Ocean in the west, by the Atlantic Ocean in the east, by the Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico in the south. In the north are Great Lakes.
The US is a large country with many natural wonders. It goes from the shores of the Atlantic Ocean to the islands of Hawaii in the Pacific, and from cold, snowy northern Alaska to sunny Florida in the southeast. The US has almost every kind of weather. Also, it has many kinds of land — rocky coasts, dry empty deserts, big rivers, wide plains and grasslands, lakes of all sizes, high mountains, great forests, sunny, beaches, lands of endless winter.
More than 250 million people live in the US. But the country is very big, so there is still a lot of open space and natural scenery outside the cities. Americans have tried to save many of the most beautiful wild areas of the United States. There are a lot of parks, forests and wildlands where you can enjoy the beauty and power of wild America. The Grand Canyon, Yosemite Valley, and Yellowstone are among the most famous.
Many rivers cross the United States. But the greatest is the mighty Mississippi. Native Americans called it "the father of waters". It begins quietly in the north of the country and ends in the Gulf of Mexico, nearly four thousand miles (6400 km) away. On its journey to the sea, the Mississippi travels through several states, and becomes larger and more powerful, it brings water to farmlands. And the Mississippi has been an important waterway since early times, when native Americans travelled on the river in canoes. Among other big rivers are the Colorado and the Missouri. The Colorado River rises in the Rocky Mountains or the Rockies that stretch from Alaska down almost to the south of the country. Another big mountain chain is the Appalachians in the east also running from north south.
The Grand Canyon is one of America's main tourist attractions. It is so big that you must go there yourself to feel its true size and beauty. The Colorado River formed the Grand Canyon over millions of years. Slowly, the river cut down through hard rock. Today, the canyon is one mile deep and 200 miles (320 km) long. It's interesting that there are different kinds of plants and animals on opposite sides of the canyon. The south side is dry and desert country. The north side has tall forests. The canyon looks different at different times of day, and in different seasons and weather. At sunrise and sunset the red, gold, brown and orange clouds of the rocks are especially clear and bright. In winter, the canyon is partly covered with snow, you can walk down into the Grand Canyon, or you can go down flown on the back of a mule. But be careful to carry enough water because inside the canyon, it is very hot much hotter than at the top.
The United States is a young country. Its written history is only a few hundred years old. It is sometimes, in fact called the "New World". Over the last four hundred years millions of people have come to start a new life in this "New World".
Americans are not afraid of new ideas. They built the first skyscrapers. They like to be modern. They like exciting, modern cities, new houses, and new cars. At the same time, Americans love old things. They like to visit historic houses and museums. They build old pioneer houses and remember the days of the "Wild West".Americans are interested in old traditions, but they are good at making new traditions too.
The people of the United States are a mixture of many different nationalities. Every American schoolchild learns that the United States is a big melting pot of countries. In a melting pot, different metals are melted together to make a new metal. The United States is like a melting pot for people. In the past, people from many different countries came to the US and made one country out of many. In one city you can find people whose parents, grandparents or great-grandparents came from China, Africa, South America, Southeast Asia, and every European country. These different people brought to their new land a wonderful mixture of customs and traditions. The Germans brought Christmas trees. The Irish brought St. Patrick's Day celebrations. The Scots brought Halloween.
problem. The situation in other countries around the world is very similar. Of course it is normal to feel a little shy sometimes. Most people feel shy in a new social situation, for example when they start a new job or have to meet and talk to strangers. But in these cases the shyness usually passes quickly.
Some people, however, are extremely shy. They are so shy that they cannot live normally. They feel worried, they sweat and tremble when they are with other people. In order to avoid these unpleasant feelings, the shy person avoids* other people. Shy people often say to themselves: "I'm not normal. People think I am boring and unattractive. I'm a failure." These negative thoughts make it more difficult for the shy person to make friends. The result is that the shy person is lonely and sad.
Shy children need a lot of help. Otherwise these shy children will grow up and become shy, unhappy adults. Parents who have a shy child should set a good example, since children learn a lot of behaviour from their parents. It is also important not to label a child as shy.
Shy children can also help themselves. You have to learn to think positively. You must stop thinking negatively. Another thing you can do is give yourself a target. For example, you may say, "I'm going to talk to at least one stranger today" or "I'm going to ask X to come for a coffee with me." When you achieve your target, you will feel very satisfied. If you are shy, you should try to walk with your head up so that you look at other people's faces. Soon, walking like that will become a habit and you will feel better and more confident as a result.
Of course, it is normal to be shy sometimes. Being a little shy can sometimes stop us from doing things that are foolish. But if you are extremely shy, you do not have to suffer. You can become less shy and become a happy, sociable person.

to come out of Britain in a long, long time. He's shifted nearly 50 million records worldwide - more than any other solo British artist - while the single that launched him on the road to solo megastardom, Angels, is still one of the most popular songs of all time. His first appearance on the pop scene was over a decade ago, in 1990, but in a remarkably different guise. Nigel Martin-Smith had created a boyband called Take That, and the role of the “cheeky one” fell to 16-year-old Robbie. Six years later the group split up. When, 1996, Robbi released his first single, a cover version of George Michael`s Freedom, the prognosis was not good. But, when he returned a year later with the song Old Before I Die, it looked as though the handsome entertainer was back at his best. Since then, his popularity has grown, as has stature as a song-writer. He and his musical partner Guy Chamders have become the most sought-after musicians in London. Robbie bought a house in Los Angeles in 2002, in an attempt to crack to American music industry. However, the talented singer's move across the pond was been blighted by bouts of depression and insecurity, despite his continued popularity in his native UK. Ironically, while his former Take That bandmates reunited with phenomenal success, Robbie was struggling to overcome his demons and checked into rehab on his 33rd birthday, in February 2007. Fans and wellwishers were left hoping that the great entertainer and showman would return to his best. And return to his best he did. After finding love with American actress Ayda Field he staged a long-awaited comeback in the UK, calling the brunette beauty his "wife" in various interviews and revealing he's happier than he's ever been. In 2009, the couple relocated to Englend after Robbie purshased a f7 million mansion-complete with helicopter hangar, awimming pool, tennis courts and 71 acres-in Wiltshire. He wheels were in motion for the star to stage him comeback on the music scene, having credited his new girlfriend with turning his life around and getting his career back on track. As it turned out, his first performance in three years could not have been more high-profile. He wowed the crowds with further appearans on Jonathan Ross’ chat show and at the Brit Awards in February 2010, where he picked up an Outstanding Contribution Award. His new albom Video Killed The Radio Star rocketed to numder two in the charts. Later on that year, the news many fans had been waiting for was announced. Robbie was joining up with his old band mates to stage a Take That reunion, involving an album full of new material and a stadium tour planned for summer 2011.
