The death of the forest
I. The Jungles from South East Asia, Central Africa and South America, are eing destroyed by chemicals, cut down and burnt at the rate of 2 square kilometers a minute.
II. Loss of forest means loss of cloud cover and rain, which consequently causes a change of climate.III. It has been hoped that the cutting down of the jungle would provide more agricultural land, however, this proved false, because tropical rain-forests have only very thin soil beneath them.
After all or part of a forest is destroyed by a disturbance, such as fire or wind or avalanche, trees and other plants reinvade the area, halting erosion and nutrient loss and maintaining water quality. This series of changes in vegetation structure, known as ecological succession, will make the forest more suitable for some animals and plants and less suitable for others.
Critics of capital punishment contend that it is brutal and degrading, while supporters consider it a necessary form of retribution (revenge) for terrible crimes. Those who advocate the death penalty assert that it is a uniquely effective punishment that deters crime. However, advocates and opponents of the death penalty dispute the proper interpretation of statistical analyses of its deterrent effect.
He then leads Pedringano to believe that a pardon for his crime is hidden in a box brought to the execution by a messenger boy, a belief that prevents Pedringano from exposing Lorenzo before he is hanged. Negotiations continue between Spain and Portugal, now centering on a diplomatic marriage between Balthazar and Bel-Imperia to unite the royal lines of the two countries.
Russian revolutionary leader and theorist, who presided over the first government of Soviet Russia and then that of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR). Lenin was the leader of the radical socialist Bolshevik Party (later renamed the Communist Party), which seized power in the October phase of the Russian Revolution of 1917. After the revolution, Lenin headed the new Soviet government that formed in Russia. He became the leader of the USSR upon its founding in 1922. Lenin held the highest post in the Soviet government until his death in 1924, when Joseph Stalin assumed power.
The last week from the Great Lent is called the Holy Week, and it begins with the Palm Sunday, which in Romania is known as "Floriile", when girls with the name of Florina usually celebrate this day as their name day. The Holy Week also includes the Maundy Thursday (in Romanian is called "joia patimilor") and the Good Friday, which in Romanian is called "vinerea mare", when the people are not supposed to eat at all.
There are many traditions and customs for Easter in Romania, but many depend on the region.Everywhere in our country there is the tradition of painting eggs and another one, of the bunny.The Easter Bunny is a mythological rabbit who brings eggs and candy to children on the Easter holiday. The rabbit as an Easter symbol seems to have its origins in 1500, Germany; the first candies in a rabbit shape seem to have appeared in 1800 also in Germany.
This analogy is supposed to alarm those still intelligent and curious readers, interested in significant things and able to think critically. The 500-word limit on all the entertainment writers and the disappearance of many critics like Michael Wilmington from Chicago Tribune, Jack Mathews and Jami Bernard from the New York Daily News, Kevin Thomas from the Los Angeles Times and Jonathan Rosenbaum from the Chicago Reader can be compared with the death of a canary in a coal mine.
Aborting a fetus is basically terminating a human life in its beginning stages. Some may even consider this on the same level as murder. To agree with abortion is to agree with killing an innocent creature that didn’t ask to be created. Human life is any living entity that has DNA from the species homosapiens.
Charles Dickens: David CopperfieldTHE PLOT of David CopperfieldDavid Copperfield concerns the growing-up of a boy, who, orphaned at an early age, experiences considerable hardship.

During winter solstice, when the sun is weak and frost and dryness
take over, Romanian peasants conceived ceremonies to help the Sun and
Nature to overcome this "temporary crisis." For 12 days between
Christmas and St. John on January 7th, all Romanian villages have
specific celebrations, starting with children's caroling on Christmas
eve: Mos Ajun or Buna Dimineata (Good Morning).

RECLAMATION OF NATURALLY INACCESSIBLE AREAS
Naturally inaccessible areas are frequently the result of moisture extremes. Wet areas must be either drained or land-filled. Drainage (see drainage systems) is accomplished in several ways: by building a system of channels, by laying drainage pipes, and by pumping. In many cases embankments must be constructed to keep water out of the reclaimed areas. landfill operations require large quantities of suitable fill material such as sand, which is often obtained by dredging adjacent areas. Water is supplied to arid areas either by pumping it from underground sources or by transporting it through an irrigation system.
Reclamation of wetlands has significantly enhanced the well-being of several nations. The Netherlands is an outstanding example. Over a period of centuries the amount of arable land has been significantly increased by the construction of dikes, enclosing portions of the shallow coastal waters, which are then drained off.

III ELIZABETHAN ECONOMY
The nation that Elizabeth inherited was experiencing a steady increase in population. During the 16th century the population of England and Wales would roughly double, and by Elizabeth’s death in 1603 would reach 5 million. The continued population growth placed strains on the economy, which was made worse by serious harvest failures in every decade of Elizabeth’s reign. Prices for food and clothing skyrocketed in what became known as the Great Inflation. The 1590s were the worst years of the century, marked by starvation, epidemic disease, and roving bands of vagrants looking for work.
