For many years people believed that the cleverest animals after man were the chimpanzees. Now, however, there is a proof that dolphins may be even cleverer than these big apes.
Although a dolphin lives in the sea, it is not a fish. It is a mammal. It is in many ways, therefore, like a human being.
Dolphins have a simple language. They are able to talk to one another. It may be possible for man to learn how to talk to dolphins. But, this will not be easy because dolphins cannot hear the kind of sounds man can make. If man wants to talk to dolphins, therefore, he will have to make a third language which both he and the dolphins can understand.
Dolphins are also very friendly toward man. They often follow ships. There are many stories about dolphins guiding ships through difficult and dangerous waters.

The Dancing House or “Fred and Ginger” is situated in Prague, Czech Republic. This is an amazing masterpiece of architecture, which has its own romantic charm. There is something so sweet in the way the buildings hug each other for a dance. It was designed by Vlado Milunic in cooperation with Frank Gehry, it is a stylish and amazing building, which became a symbol of the city. The Dancing House (Czech: Tancici Dum), or Fred and Ginger, is the nickname given to the Nationale Nederlanden building on the Rasinovo Nabrezi in Prague, Czech Republic. It was designed by the Croatian Czech architect Vlado Milunić in cooperation with Canadian-American architect Frank Gehry on a vacant riverfront plot. The building was designed in 1992 and completed in 1996. 

The very non-traditional design was controversial at the time because the house stands out among the Baroque, Gothic and Art Nouveau buildings for which Prague is famous, and in the opinion of some it does not accord well with these architectural styles. The then Czech president, Václav Havel, who lived for decades next to the site, had avidly supported this project, hoping that the building would become a center of cultural activity. Gehry originally named the house Fred and Ginger (after the famous dancers Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers – the house resembles a pair of dancers) but this nickname is now rarely used; moreover, Gehry himself was later "afraid to import American Hollywood kitsch to Prague and thus discarded his own idea.
The "Tancici Dum" (Dancing House), an administrative building on the Vltava River waterfront, was completed in 1996 as the first ambitious and also controversial architectural project after the Velvet Revolution of 1989. A bravely designed house by architects Frank O. Gehry and Vlado Milunič, given the surrounding historical buildings among which it is standing. The building represents the two Holywood dancers Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire, hence the building name. The male dancer is represented by the stone tower and his female partner by the glazed tower. The building received a prestigious award from the American Time Magazine in 1996 in the category Best Design of the Year.
