1. The British daily newspaper The Guardian was founded in Manchester in 1821 as The
Manchester Guardian. In 1959 its name was changed to The Guardian, and since 1961 it has
been printed simultaneously in London and Manchester. A "quality" daily, The Guardian is
owned by a trust, not a proprietor, and therefore has a reputation for independence. Noted for its
political comment, arts reviews, and women's page, its stance is leftwards, and it appeals mainly
to middle-class readers who regard themselves as liberal-minded. Though it has been called
"Britain's nonconformist conscience", it has its lighter side, and is famous for its punning
headlines.
2. The Sunday Telegraph is a British Sunday newspaper, founded in 1961 as sister-paper
to The Daily Telegraph. It has a similar readership: middle-to-upper class, mainly right-wing. It
is famous for the forthright and challenging views of its columnists both on political and social
issues. Published in London, in two sections (news/sport and a review of literature and the arts),
its circulation is around 600,000.
3. The British Daily Telegraph was founded in 1855. As the first cheap daily newspaper
in London, it was at the start rather radical in outlook (and enormously popular). Today its
readers are mainly middle-to-upper class, with conservative views (and probably Conservative
politics). The Telegraph has a reputation for wide and accurate reporting, and is considered to be
2
one of Britain's "quality" dailies (along with The Times, The Guardian, The Financial Times and
The Independent).
4. The British Daily Express was founded by Sir Arthur Pearson in 1900. Intended for
mass popular readership, it soon became noted for its wide coverage of international affairs as
well as for lively reporting and enthusiastic patriotism. In 1916 it was bought by the pressmagnate Lord Beaverbrook, who turned it in the most widely-read daily in the world. The
Express now appeals to broadly middle-class right-wing, but independently-minded reader. At
first a broadsheet, it became a tabloid 1977, in line with the newer popular newspapers such as
The Sun
5. The Financial Times, a British daily, was founded in 1888. It provides full daily
reports on the Stock Exchange and on world markets, and a comprehensive coverage of business
affairs. But it is also greatly respected for its general news reporting and analysis, and for its
reviews of literature and the arts. More expensive than other daily papers, and printed on
distinctive pink paper, The Financial Times is published in London, with an international edition
published in Frankfurt, New York, and Paris.
6. The Independent is Britain's newest "quality" daily paper, founded in 1986, at time
when several other newly-established papers were failing. Its survival was attributed to a long
and careful period of planning, and to the excellence of its design, photograph and graphics. It
appeals particularly to educated, middle-class readers who don't care for the earnestness of The
Guardian, or who find The Daily Telegraph stuffy, or who are worried by changes in The Times.
7. The Economist, a British weekly founded in 1843, covers not just economic and
business affairs of Britain and the world, but also current affairs, politics, science and
technology, literature, arts. It is read by influential businessmen and politicians all over the
world, besides having a wide general readership. The Economist is noted for the clarity of its
style and for the fact that all its contributors are anonymous. Published in London, with editorial
offices in America, Europe, and the Far East.

Тhe two-player game chess is оnе of the most popular
board games in the world. It is also оnе of the oldest,
although there is uncertainty regarding where and when
chess originated. Several countries claim to have invented
the game.
2 We will never know Оnе possibility is that chess was invented in India about
for sure why the game 1,500 years ago. Another theory, however, says that the
is called ‘chess’.
Chinese were playing а form of chess over 800 years
before that. We shall probably never know for sure, but we
do know where the word ‘chess’ comes from. It comes
from the Persian word shãh, which means ‘king’.

Тhe rules for chess have changed several times during the

Тhe enormously successful board game Monopoly has аn
interesting history. Although many people believe that
Char1es Darrow created the game, it is now known that he
did not. In the 1920s, there were а number of home-made
games in the USA called Моnopolу, аll very similar to the
game we play today. Charles Darrow played оnе of these
games, enjoyed it, and decided to make his own version.
Не, his wife and his son made the sets bу hand and he
began to sell them. Тhe game’s popularity grew and, in
1935, Darrow sold the game to the American соmраnу
Parker Brothers. The UK version of the game, with
London street names, was produced by Waddington
Games in 1936. In а short space of time, there were
versions for cities and countries аll round the world. It has
bееn estimated that since 1935 more than 500 million
people have p1ayed Моnороlу.
