Soon we will have 25 alphabets in english language. English alphabet will be lose Z on June 1st. The announcement came from the English Language Central Commission (ELCC).
After carefully considering and debating the matter for over two years, the ELCC came to the conclusion that the letter “Z” should be removed from the English alphabet. The main objective of this change is to simplify the phonetic aspect of the language, and to unify the American and British spellings.
What will happen to the words that have the letter “z” in them? It depends on the word. According to the ELCC, words that started with a “z” will now start with an “x”.
zero becomes xero
Words that featured a “z” with the “s” sound, on the other hand, will now be officially written with the “s” (i.e., unifying the American and British spelling).
visualize becomes visualise
Let this change bring in US and UK vocabulary more close.

But when your house is in the harsh climate all you think about is how to hide away from sun which is everywhere. Do not waste anytime, learned to use lot of materials to protect the house from the sun, such as glass of different colors and exterior shutters
This is why we should plan bedrooms and nurseries to face north-east, this way they would get most of the sun light in the mornings. Isn't it a great feeling to wake up to the first rays of morning sun?
Glass of different colors blocks sun very well, exterior shutters around windows are also efficient and effective embrasures on the windows take all the heat so none enters the house.
