    When NASA first started sending up astronauts, they quickly discovered that ballpoint pens would not worl in zero gravity. To combat this problem, NASA scientists spent a decade and $12 billion developing a pen that writes in zero gravity, upside down, under water, on almost any surface including glass and at temperatures ranging from below freezing to over 300c.

    Reader’s Digest is also a very popular consumer magazine in England UK. I subscribed to it when I was living there and my two sons used to read it all the time. Full of short items that could be read at any time. It was good reading All In a Day’s Work and Life’s Like That. I found Word Power and Quotable Quotes very good and I have used some of it for my lessons I also enjoyed reading the anecdotes. The stories submitted by people from different walks of life and different cultures. Some of them were very good.
