What will the city of the future look like? This question has been asked so many times over the last 500 years – and answered inconsequentially an equal number of times – that we can be sure of one thing only: no one can predict how cities will look 50 or 500 years from now.

The reason is simple. Cities change . For over fifty years they have changed so rapidly that the oldest will remember a time when their city seemed to belong not just to another era but to a different .

This is true both of planned and unplanned cities. Planned cities such as New York and Paris, which are closely designed on a grid or diagram of streets and , have effectively burst at the seams this century, while unplanned cities such as London, Tokyo and Los Angeles have grown just as dramatically. Although their centres might remain much as they were many years ago, their have spread like the tentacles of an octopus.

Read the passage. 

Your amazing brain

Your brain controls everything you do. It makes it possible for you to think, learn, create and feeler to blink and breathe and for your heart to beat - this fantastic-center is your brain. It is so amazing that a famous scientist once calls the most complex thing we have discovered in our universe.

Trying to make sense of the brain isn't easy. We know it’s the organ that makes us human by giving the ability to create art and language to make decisions and produce rational thought. It's also responsible for personalities, memories, movement and how we understand the world.

Can this small grey organ, which weighs less than 1.5 kilos, really do so much? Amazingly, your brain contains about 109 billion microscopic cells called neurons - it would take you over 3,000 years to count them all. Whenever you laugh, think, see or move, it's because signals are racing between these neurons. Believe it or not, the activity in your brain never stops. Your neurons create and send more messages than all the phones in the world. And although one neuron creates only a very small amount of electricity, all your neurons together can produce enough electricity to power a light bulb.

So exactly how fast does your brain work? Well, imagine this: a bee lands on our foot. Neurons in your skin send this information to your brain at a speed of more than 240 kilometers per hour. Your brain then uses other neurons to send the message back to your foot to shake the bee off quickly. These neurons can send this information at 320 kilometers per hour. No computer has your brain's incredible ability to cope with the amount of information coming from your eyes, ears and other sensory organs.

But how does your brain allow you to learn things that you will use in the future? The structure of your brain changes every time you have a new thought, remember or learn something. For example, riding a bike seems impossible at first, but soon you are able to do it. How? As you practice, your brain sends 'bike riding' messages again and again. Soon, the actions are learnt and you are able to ride a bike easily from then on.

How quickly we learn things varies from person to person, but there are some things which can help us to learn faster and, surprisingly, exercise is one of them. We know that any exercise that makes your heart beat faster is great for your body and can even help improve your mood. But we know less about the effects of exercise on learning. However, scientists have recently discovered that for a period of time after you've exercised, your body produces a chemical that makes it easier for your brain to learn. So, if you're stuck on a homework problem that is too difficult to solve, go out and play a game of football, then try the problem again. You just might discover that you're able to solve it.
