The attitude that is conditioned into our psyche from a young age is that we have to learn a skill and use that to get a job in order to earn money, which in term feeds the growth of the economy. One question I think almost every day but I find many other people donБt give it a second thought is why do we have to work? БNormal is getting dressed in clothes that you buy for work and driving through traffic in a car that you are still paying for Б in order to get to the job you need to pay for the clothes and the car, and the house you leave vacant all day so you can afford to live in it. Б Why do we have to work? At face value and viewing life through the brainwashed society we are all born into, the answer may sound rather obvious, we need to earn money to purchase material objects in
Why should one need a scientific name when a perfectly good common name is available? Because common names are so often imprecise or misleading. For example what is known by one name in one country may be known by another name in another country. And when people all over the world speak so many different languages, one animal can have so many different names in different languages. In the scientific world, it is extremely important to know the precise information about the object we study and also to know what class or type it belongs to. The name must therefore be unique. Here are a few links that explain how such naming is done. For a simple introduction to scientific names,. Once you know the simple rules that are used to name animals and plants, then remembering their scientific names
People often talk about English as a global language or lingua franca. With more than 350 million people around the world speaking English as a first language and more than 430 million speaking it as a second language, there are English speakers in most countries around the world. Why is English so popular, though? And why has it become a global language? People often call English the international language of business, and it s increasingly true as international trade expands every year, bringing new countries into contact. Many of the best MBA programs are taught in English, so speaking it well can put you in a position to get the best training and credentials. Most multinational companies require a certain degree of English proficiency from potential employees so in order to get a
Walk a mechanical picker through the fields. Similar in workings to a large, push lawn mower, the picker mows over the field. It has moving comb-like fingers that separate the berries from their vine. The berries are then shifted into an attached container, like a grass catcher. The berries in the container are then collected and sent to be processed. The one downside to the mechanical picker is that the machine can occasionally damage berries. Damaged berries are best used for juices and sauces. If you are not growing many cranberry bushes, you could consider picking your cranberries by hand. While this takes a good deal of time, it is a more affordable way to pick the berries. Picking by hand is not recommended if you have a cranberry bog. ...
Fire blight is a serious bacterial infection that affects every part of the tree. In addition to curling leaves on wilting stems, fire symptoms include cankers on the bark, leaf wilt or dying blossoms. Planting apple varieties that are resistant to fire blight, pruning infected stems during the tree's winter dormancy period and applications of antibiotic sprays are all useful methods for combating this disease. ...
The second theory is that the Good in Good Friday derives from God or God s Friday. Wikipedia, for example, puts this theory forward citing a 1909 The Catholic Encyclopedia. In a separate article on the same subject, the Huffington Post. However, there seems to be no basis for this etymology. The origin from God is out of the question according to Anatoly Liberman, a professor at the University of Minnesota who studies the origins of English words. (Liberman also told me that English speakers have a long history of speculating about a relationship between the word good and the word god where. ) The linguist and lexicographer Ben Zimmer agreed, noting that the German for Good Friday isn t actually Gottes Freitag ( God s Friday ), as the Catholic Encyclopedia suggests, but rather
On Saturday afternoon Billy Buck, the ranch-hand, raked together the last of the old yearБs haystack and pitched small forkfuls over the wire fence to a few mildly interested cattle. High in the air small clouds like puffs of cannon smoke were driven eastward by the March wind. The wind could be heard whishing in the brush on the ridge crests, but no breath of it penetrated down into the ranch-cup. John Steinbeck, The Leader of the People. (1937) I first read that paragraph, the opening of SteinbeckБs famous short story, in high school and it has stayed with me ever since. Not because of the character or the plotБtoo early for those to come into playБbut because of the setting. A simple setting, but one that pulls you in, makes you want to be part of it and actually resonates in your
: The nickname Leatherneck has become a universal moniker for a U. S. Marine. The term originated from the wide and stiff leather neck-piece that was part of the Marine Corps uniform from 1798 until 1872. This leather collar, called The Stock, was roughly four inches high and had two purposes. In combat, it protected the neck and jugular vein from cutlasses slashes. On parade, it kept a Marine's head erect. The term is so widespread that it has become the name of the Marine Corps Association monthly magazine, LEATHERNECK. Around 1900, members of the U. S. Navy began using Gyrene as a jocular derogatory reference to U. S. Marines. Instead of being insulted, the Marines loved it. The term became common by World War I and has been extensively used since that time. For roughly 50 years,
Menstrual cramps are painful sensations that affect many women before and during a menstrual period. The pain, also known as dysmenorrhea or period pains, ranges from dull and annoying to severe and extreme. Menstrual cramps tend to begin after when an egg is released from the ovaries and travels down the fallopian tube. Pain occurs in the lower abdomen and lower back. It usually begins 1 to 2 days before menstruation and lasts from 2 to 4 days. Pain that is only associated with the process of menstruation is known as primary dysmenorrhea. If the cramping pain is due to an identifiable medical problem such as, uterine, or, it is called secondary dysmenorrhea. Over-the-counter medication is available to treat most cases of menstrual cramps. Anti-prostaglandins reduce cramping in the
I m going to start this off by saying, no, I m not a scientist. I don t have reams of data or beakers full of beer samples to back up the Tap Beer vs Bottled Beer Theory I am proposing. But what I am is a guy who likes to go to bars and drink beer. I ve been doing it for years. About 16 years to be exact (I m 37. ) And over time I have noticed that there is almost no upside to drinking tap beer (even though it s cheaper). I opt for bottled beer every time. And here s why. When you re younger, hangovers are a sort of afterthought to drinking. They only come into an 21-year-old s vocabulary after you drank like a collegiate rookie, getting so obliterated that you end up hugging the toilet for the better part of an evening. But as one gets older, hangovers start to come into play much more
