Future Perfect Continuous

So you are doing something in the future up until a specific point in time. What verb tense would you use for this? Dah da daaaah, the future perfect continuous, of course! It is formed by subject + will + have been + verb in “ing” form.
An example would be “I will have been dancing for hours when the sun rises.” This describes that I will continue dancing until the mentioned point in time, when the sun rises. When the action starts is somewhat ambiguous though. I could have been dancing already, or I’m starting to dance now, or I won’t start to dance until the future, though before the sun rises. Think of it as you have projected yourself into the future, when the sun rises in this case, and you are looking back on all the dancing you have accomplished.
An important thing to note is that future perfect continuous is for action verbs only because it’s describing the duration of an action. For nonaction verbs (to be, to know, etc) you would use the future perfect tense. As a reminder the future perfect tense is formed by subject + will + have + past participle.

By the time I finish writing this blog, I will have been writing blog posts for three hours!

Like wine, beer can have health benefits when consumed in moderation. Non-alcoholic beers have become

wildly popular recently, but are these drinks also healthful?

In a pilot study, researchers report that compared to their pre-trial microbiome, men who drank either one alcoholic or non-alcoholic lager daily had a more diverse set of gut microbes, which can reduce the risk for some diseases.

Studies have shown that when more types of bacteria are present, people tend to have a lower chance of developing chronic diseases, such as heart disease and diabetes. And beer contains compounds and microorganisms from its fermentation that could impact the variety of microbes in the human gut.

A previously published study showed that when both men and women consumed non-alcoholic lager beer for 30 days, their gut microbiome diversity increased. Many of those same people were also in a second group that drank an alcoholic version of the beer, and it didn’t have the same effect.

In this double-blind study, 19 healthy men were randomly divided into two groups who drank 11 fluid ounces of either alcoholic or non-alcoholic lager with dinner for 4 weeks. But at the end of the 4-week period, both groups had greater bacterial diversity in their gut microbiome, indicating an improvement in intestinal health.

The researchers suggest that these results could differ from those of the prior study because of the different designs of the trials, and because the participants were living in different communities.

But based on this pilot study, the researchers say that consuming one bottle of beer, regardless of its alcohol content, may be beneficial to the gut microbiome and intestinal health of men.

Protests – ESL Reading Comprehension and Vocabulary Quiz

In this post you will be learning about an uncommon activity, protesting! A protest is when a group of people come together to voice a shared opinion in the hopes that a grievance can be fixed. Grievances are often about things like money, time, freedoms, or simply respect. Protests can come in all different sizes, from students occupying a school to revolutionaries overthrowing the government.

There are different types of protests as well, some involving the public and others focusing only on the relationship between the protester and the one they are protesting against. A sit-in is common for students, they occupy school but refuse to attend classes for example. Or a hunger strike may be performed by prisoners when they refuse to eat anything until conditions change. Picketers stand outside a business holding their namesake signs on sticks to warn others about an unfair practice. A march is when a group of people walk the streets and block traffic holding banners to let their struggles be known. Strikers go on strike and refuse to perform their jobs perhaps at a factory or in Milan if they work for public transportation! These are examples of nonviolent protests. Ghandi and Martin Luther King Jr are famous for their nonviolent approach to protesting.
