If you think you can hide the truth about you behind make-up or controlling yourself...well...sorry :) It is all writen there - in your face. Have a quick look:

And 'face' itself is a really interesting word - http://www.macmillandictionary.com/dictionary/british/face_1
I was quite shocked, I must say, when I saw that this presentation is on TED now.
and then I watched it. And... I am really curious what you think and more importantly - what you feel about this....
Want to practice understanding French people speaking English? Watch Philippe Stark on TED.
This is hilarious and clever at the same time :) Who is Phillppe Stark? A legend of modern design. He's known for his luxurious hotels and boites around the world -- notably the Peninsula Hotel restaurant in Hong Kong, the Teatron in Mexico, the Hotel Delano in Miami, the Mondrian in Los Angeles, the Asia de Cuba restaurant in New York -- designing the total environment from layout to furniture to linens.

and here is how to:
I have read some of the comments that follow and one which might spark our discussion next week is the following:
I've been recently in touch with some research (old and new) that I had heard of but never review it deeply. And here is the thing: I don't think we are intelligent. Yeah, I know. I will write something about this much more detailed and referenced and publish it soon I hope. But the bottom line here is that we are capable of really complex thinking but not necessarily an intelligent one. I mean, look at us, individually and collectively. We are at constant war, we harm the place we live in, we harm each other, we totally decry out potential, and so forth. Can we really said that these had been intelligent choices? I mean, they took a lot of complex thinking, but are they smart, wise, intelligent decisions?
To be continued in the lessons...
With the greatest thanks for motivating me to restart this learners' blog - thank you, Loolah :))))
So here we go: as an extension to what we have done his week - the Huffington Post also has this bit on the misused words and phrases - please click on http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/02/01/commonly-misused-words_n_4652969.html. Obviously, it must be much appreciated by the Americans since wherever we look there is an article or a post (or a song...:)) on Crime Words https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Gv0H-vPoDc - Loolah's contribution, btw, again. The world of English has never seen a more dedicated student....:)
So, is it an everyday issue or an every day issue? :)
