5.What's the average height, weight and BMI of a runway model?

#The average height is 5 feet 9 inches, weight is 110 lbs and BMI is just 16.
6.What are the arguments for and against?
7.Check the meanings of gaunt, emaciated and wan.

#Gaunt means excessively thin and angular, emaciate means to come to loss flesh so as to become very thin, wan means faint.
8.How can you calculate someone's BMI?

#BMI is obtained by dividing a person's weight in kilograms by their height in metres squared. In the English system, it is calculated by dividing weight in pounds by height in inches squared, and multiplying that total by 703.

My oppinion
It is indeed a praising step taken by the spanish goverment.It will save many lives.Models always try to keep themselves in a slim figure for their successful career.This ambition often lead them to be emaciated.Models are the icons for fashion concious young girls.young girls want to go the same way and often fall in a dangerous diseases.So by this pohibation models will get a healthy life and other young girls as well.

Lisbeth's podcast

Lisbeth's podcast about her trip is very interesting. She is a very lucky person. Within 2 month she travelled 10 countries. I really enjoyed it. It also inspired me a lot. If I have enough enough money I would like to go for a similar trips to her's because it is a good oppurtunity to know about other countries, people and their culture.
