The Swamp Dwellers



The Struggle Between Human Beings and Unfavorable Forces of Nature

The Swamp Dwellers concentrates on the battle between the old and the better approaches for life in Africa. It likewise gives us a picture of the attachment that existed between the single and southern Nigerian social order. The clash between custom and innovation is moreover reflected in the play.

Narrative technique of the Return of the Native



Much has been said, pro and con, about Hardy's style in his fiction. It is easy to say he has a clumsy style or an adequate style or an intermittently effective style. A demonstration of some particular aspect of his style is perhaps more useful.

Effective Ending of the Short Story ''The Sniper"



Is the Ending Effective in the Short Story ''The Sniper''?

Is the ending Effective? Let’s question you- what does the word effective mean? The answer is- adequate to accomplish a purpose; producing the intended or expected result.

Now, let’s solve it. Was the ending adequate to accomplish a purpose? The answer is- Yes! Now you must find out the purpose and the matters on which the author wanted to emphasis through the ending. The purpose is surely revealing- brutality of war, redundant killings and fratricide. So you can say that the ending is effective, as it reveals -

Romeo and Juliet



Argue against the opinion that Romeo and Juliet is a story of Childish behavior

Rosenberg argued that "Romeo and Juliet—a play about children—is full of terrible, deeply childish ideas about love." Juliet, Rosenberg reminds us, is 13. If you cast someone that age in the role now, the result is queasy. If you cast someone older, you end up with an adult actor behaving like she's a tween. Romeo's age is uncertain, but a lot of what he does is immature, and adolescent as well. The lovers' haste to marry strains credulity—it seems (though Rosenberg doesn't quite say this) like a childish fantasy of love at first sight. Similarly, the reconciliation of the lovers' warring families upon their demise reads for Rosenberg as "an adolescent fantasy of death solving all problems."

Impacts of loss of Biodiversity




Loss of biodiversity appears to impact ecosystems as much as climate change, pollution and other major forms of environmental stress, according to a new study. There has been growing concern that the very high rates of modern extinctions -- due to habitat loss, over harvesting and other human-caused environmental changes -- could reduce nature's ability to provide goods and services like food, clean water and a stable climate.

Natural Causes of Extinction



Climatic Heating and Cooling: Climate Change is caused by a number of things. The effect that climate has on extinction is very big. The bio-diverse Earth can't keep up with the rapid changes in temperature and climate. The species are not used to severe weather conditions and long seasons, or a changing chemical make-up of their surroundings. As more species die, it is only making it more difficult for the survivors to find food. The warmer climates we are used to present-day are perfect for diseases and epidemics to thrive.

Origin of Life



Power Behind Primordial Soup Discovered

Apr. 4, 2013 — Researchers at the University of Leeds may have solved a key puzzle about how objects from space could have kindled life on Earth.
While it is generally accepted that some important ingredients for life came from meteorites bombarding the early Earth, scientists have not been able to explain how that inanimate rock transformed into the building blocks of life.

Visual Dominance



Know In Which Eye You See!

Visual dominance, sometimes called eye dominance or eyedness, is the tendency to prefer visual input from one eye to the other. It is somewhat analogous to the liberality of right or left handedness; however, the side of the dominant eye and the dominant hand do not always match. This is because both hemispheres control both eyes, but each one takes charge of a different half of the field of vision, and therefore a different half of both retinas. There is thus no direct analogy between "handedness" and "eyedness" as lateral phenomena.
Approximately two-thirds of the population is right-eye dominant and one-third left-eye dominant; however in a small portion of the population neither eye is dominant.
