This week in 1970 saw the end of the (long and winding) road for the Beatles. Here are some things that you probably don’t know about the Fab Four:

1. John Lennon’s first musical instrument was the banjo.

2. Before choosing the name “The Beatles” they were called “Johnny And The Moondogs”.

3. Ringo Starr’s real name is Richard Starkey

4. Ringo didn’t play the drums on “Love Me Do” 

5. The song, “Yesterday” was originally called “Scrambled Eggs

Has technology made a positive contribution to sport today?

Write about:

1. the use of technology to improve performance

2. the use of technology in refereeing decisions

3. .............................. (your own idea)


            The question of whether technology has made a positive contribution to sport is an interesting and, perhaps, a controversial one.

            One argument in favour of technology in sport is that it has helped to improve the performance of players and athletes. This can be seen in the number of world records that have been broken recently. Sports equipment has also been transformed radically which has helped not only the top athletes but also ordinary people who are interested in improving their games.  However some would argue that this has turned many of the top athletes into robots.

            Another area that has been affected by technology is that of refereeing decisions. Without technology there is always the possibility that a referee can make a mistake which could have a huge impact on a game. Technology has helped to reduce these kind of errors. Despite this there are some who would argue that games are much slower than before as the referee cannot make an instant decision.

            Additionally, technology has perhaps provided a better experience for spectators and “armchair enthusiasts”. All major sporting events are now broadcast on TV or radio. The internet has also enabled sports fanatics to interact with other fans and, in some cases, the athletes themselves.

            All in all I feel that technology has made a positive and valuable contribution to the world of sport.

Recipe Of The Week: Spring Chicken In A Pot


1 tbsp olive oil

1 onion, chopped

500g boneless, skinless chicken thighs

300g small new potatoes

425ml low-salt vegetable stock

350g broccoli, cut into small florets

350g spring greens, shredded

140g petits pois

bunch spring onion, sliced 

2 tbsp pesto


Spring chicken in a pot


Heat the oil in a large, heavy pan. Add the onion, gently fry for 5 mins until softened, add the chicken, then fry until lightly coloured. Add the potatoes, stock and plenty of freshly ground black pepper, then bring to the boil. Cover, then simmer for 30 mins until the potatoes are tender and the chicken is cooked. 


Add the broccoli, spring greens, petit pois and spring onions, stir well, then return to the boil. Cover, then cook for 5 mins more, stir in the pesto and heat through. Easy!
