Educational: the subject in grammar

I started learning more about grammar of English, so want to share some educational materials with you.

The S is the principal part of a two-member sentence which is grammatically independent of the other parts of the sentence and on which the second principal part (the predicate) is dependent. It can denote a living being, a lifeless thing or an idea.
The ways of expressing the S: 1) A noun in the common case (The sun is shining); 2) A pronoun (personal, demonstrative, defining, indefinite, negative, possessive, interrogative) (Everyone is sitting), sometimes the pronouns "one, they, you, we" refer to people in general – in such cases an impersonal sentence is used in Russian; 3) A substantivized adjective or participle (The injured were taken to hospital); 4) A numeral (cardinal, ordinal) (The two were happy); 5) An infinitive, an infinitive phrase or construction (To work is a necessity); 6) A gerund, a gerundial phrase or construction (Studying is a must); 7) Any part of speech used as a quotation (Yes is the word I want to hear from her); 8) A syntactically indivisible group (Fish and chips is the most famous English dish); 9) A quotation group (And what does Mr.Know-It-All recommend?).

Sand Animation and Drawing - Complete Madness

As promised in my introductory post, I am starting to share things, which totally impressed me.

After the launch of international variants of shows, which are similar to America's Got Talent, various video hosting websites started to go crazy with dozens of attention grabbing videos.

Sand Animation and Drawing



Just now I have seen a stunning video of a Ukrainian girl, who draws with the help of sand. I am totally impressed by the video and even tried to draw something myself, but as for me, it is impossible to draw something like this without years of practice. What do you think about the video?
