For the universal well-being

While the use of the bicycle helps keep a person active and in good health, its public use is related to the concern for nature and ecology. When people ride a bicycle, it does not release any harmful substances into the environment. That is why, the popularity of bicycles, which have great importance for health and ecology, has been increasing worldwide in recent years. The concern for human health and nature are the priorities of state policy in our Motherland, which is oriented towards the development goals aimed at universal well-being. The promotion of a healthy lifestyle, the development of high-level sports and the mass physical education and health movement reflect the large-scale efforts in the field of public health in our country.

Chess is a wonderful game

Chess is a complex strategic game, called ‘brain gymnastics’. There are a number of techniques and methods to play this game. The Sicilian Defence, the opening of the game, is the favourite debut of many chess players. The Sicilian defence is an offensive strategy. It is performed by black pieces. The difference between this debut and the others is that the blacks are not only fighting for a draw, but for a victory. There are disadvantages to every strategy in chess. The downside is that white pieces are often the first to take advantage, so blacks have to counterattack without wasting time.

A description of a meaningful life

Our people have always attached great importance to the upbringing of children. This fact is obvious when people read the Turkmen proverbs, sayings, poetic folklore, legends, and parables. The book ‘Ömrümiň manysy’ by our Hero-Arkadag Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov, who adheres to national principles and values in this valuable work, is of great importance in this context. The book’s first chapter ‘The Culture of Being’ is dedicated to education. The early choice of a profession, while the children are still at secondary school, makes this issue one of the great tasks facing the teachers and awakes interest in the book. Our Hero-Arkadag writes that a child's career begins with a mother. This fact takes the readers on a journey to the epicentre of folk art, called lullaby.

Sports obtain a great impulse
