Fast food snack bars have a right to exist because one can quickly and inexpensively satisfy one’s hunger, get warm or appoint a meeting.
Fast food is a part of the city’s social infrastructure. It is hard to imagine a city without cafes and snack bars as well as without transportation or outdoor lighting system.
Large fast food companies are charitable, they help the handicapped and other needy social groups, participate in various social programs
A well organized fast food restaurant is not just an eatery but also an entertainment for kids and adults
Fast food networks provide a lot of part-time working places for day-time students , giving them the possibility to earn some money.
The concept of fast food is more about the way the food is cooked and eventually consumed rather than about the food as such. Fast food contains a lot of harmful ingredients which have a negative impact on the human organism. Nevertheless, many people do constantly eat fast food without considering the consequences, even when they know they how unhealthy they are. Healthy diet is not so easy to keep as it requires a lot of time as well as strong enough will not to be tempted by tasty but unhealthy food. Thus, one must understand that it his choice which would effect his health after all.
Thus, in the process of work both negative and positive sides of the “fast food concept” have been revealed. Undoubtedly unhealthy and attractive at the same time, offering more and more new temptations. Voting for healthy diets, we have to give up unhealthy but tasty products. Being caught in an endless loop of dieting, one can fall ill from stress. On the other hand, indulging oneself in little weaknesses, one can significantly improve one’s mood which positively effects health.
There is no simple answer to these questions. In each and every case a person must decide for oneself what to chose and how to be. And take responsibility for these decisions. Yet it is very important to be aware of what is hidden behind bright packaging, attractive appearance and loud ads, imposing fast food consumption on us.

“King Arthur and castle Camelot: Myth or Reality?”
The Welsh annalist Nennius (who lived in the IX century) wrote about Arthur, as about the leader who had united Brites in the struggle against Saxons, Angels and Utes, which pushed them aside to scanty mountainous and hilly Cornwall, Wales and Cumbria. This name inspired to refugees the hope of returning to the native lands. And at the day of Arthur’ death, the awful fire had flashed, which denoted the end of the glorious epoch. But was that true?
The aim of my project is to find out whether King Arthur was a real person or only the gathering of characters taken from different people and united into hero, into illustrious ruler, into the great man.
Modern historians have been trying to find the evidence of King Arthur’ existence. It’s just the mystery where the famous castle Camelot and The Isle of Avalon were. The archaeologists found the hypothetical place where they could been.
The greatest writers and philosophers as Sir Thomas Malory, Geoffrey of Monmouth, Nennius and others wrote about the King Arthur’ greatness, about wonderful thing that he’d done ( the unification of great Britain), about his wife Guinevere, and the famous wizard Merlin, about the sword Excalibur, and his sister, witch Morgana, who lived in the mystic isle of mists Avalon.
There is no mentions in the welsh genealogy about someone called Arthur, at least, until the first Tudor, who named his first-born in such way, the Prince of Wales, in 1486.
Some people think that there’re some connections with ‘Arctur’ the brightest star in the instellation of The Great Bear, asserting it was the name of the Celtic hero, the leader of the armed force, which ‘cleaned’ the country of Giants.
In others opinion, it’s the distorted name ‘Artoriy’, it was the name of the real romanted Brite.
When we were carrying out this research we have tried as full as possible elucidate the chosen theme. (the theme chosen by us).We had studied many books and the Internet resources, the list of which you can see below, we have tried to expound perfectly (in full measure) the obtained information and our own views in our historical project. Namely, the proof, in our opinion, that king Arthur is only a legend, but as we know, each legend descend from something, namely, there are always either real characters, or the real facts. We consider, that characters and the facts of Arthur’s legend are really truthful, but great king Arthur, founder of Camelot, hardly took place in the real history of The United Kingdom of the Great Britain and Northern Ireland.
Most likely, great annalist Galfrid, only, had taken characters, appearance, and other features, which usually inherent in the great ruler, from different people, and had united them in the one person, recreated by that, glorified and for ever entered in centuries and even history, king Arthur.
When we were creating our project we had to read through set of books and to see infinite quantity of encyclopedias, let alone infinite number a web-sites, overflowing by the every possible information. Below we wrote only a small amount of the sources used by us.
