William Shakespeare was born in Stratford on Avon, England, in April of 1564 to Mary and John Shakespeare. He was the third child and the eldest son. His father was a tanner, glove-maker, and trader in wool and other precious commodities. William attended the Stratford Grammar school where he studied and received substantial training in Latin. He was married on November 27, 1582, to a woman named Anne Hathaway, who was eight years older than he was. In May of 1583, the couple's first daughter, Susanna was born. The couple had twins in February of 1585, Hamnet and Judith. Throughout his life, Shakespeare wrote thirty-seven plays, and several poems and sonnets. He was also an actor for a short while. Several of Shakespears plays were performed at the famous Globe Theater in England. On April 23, 1616 Shakespeare died, he was buried at the church of Stratford on April 25, 1616. One of Shakespeare's most famous plays is Romeo and Juliet. I first read this play in my ninth grade English class. At the time, I remember how difficult it was for me to read it. The language was very different from what I was accustomed to reading it was as if it was a foreign language. At first we depended on my teacher to help interpret the play to us. After a little reading and adjusting to the language, I could read it on my own and understand it. This is when I actually began to like reading Shakespeare. I have also read Julius Caesar and Macbeth. Of the three plays that I have read, I like Romeo and Juliet the best. My first introduction to Romeo and Juliet was reading the original play by William Shakespeare. The play is about two families, the Capulets and the Montagues. These two families have a deep-rooted hatred for each other. The family's hatred towards each other is key in this play. Juliet comes from the Capulets and Romeo from the Montagues. Romeo and Juliet first meet at a masquerade ball that is being held at the Capulet's home. Upon first glance, the two immediately fall in love. They quickly figure out who comes from which family. They know that this is going to cause huge problems. Romeo and Juliet sneak off together so that they can talk and get to know each other a little better.

One good thing about the practice of capital punishment is that it has evolved to a more humane nature for the person being executed. Capital punishment has been practiced for hundreds of years. In the end of the 18th century Great Britain banned drawing and quartering, which was a gruesome act where “The victims were first hung by the neck but taken from the scaffold while still alive”( Hung, drawn and quartered 10). Also around the same time France had invented the guillotine. Hangings were also made more humane by replacing short drop hangings (which basically caused the “criminals” to suffocate to death) with a long drop hanging where the criminal was dropped from a longer distance which caused the neck to break and in turn severed the spine, this change in technique would lessen the suffering of the victim. In the Uni...
People believe that the sun is the biggest, brightest star in the universe. In reality though, it is not. The sun is classified as a star, but there are many other stars out there that make the sun look like a dull grain of sand. The sun is very powerful though. It fuses hydrogen atoms into helium. This energy will allow the sun to give off a ton of light and heat for a long time. Since the sun can give off this much energy and heat just think how much more the other bigger stars give off. This leads us to the idea that the North Star, Polaris, is another star that is up there on the list of the “biggest and brightest”. While it is really bright, this is only because it is so close to us. Technically it is an average size star in a convenient spot for us to guide to.
Through the continuing studies focused on regeneration and stem cells, scientists can try to see how manipulate totipotent cells found in humans to regenerate into any cell needed throughout the body (Wagner et al., 2012). Humans will benefit from advances in regeneration when faced with degenerative diseases that affect the muscular system or major organs necessary for life. Regeneration can help rebuild organs or muscles damaged by infection or disease and change medicine and human health (Salvetti et al., 2009).
Outsourcing is, “practice of having certain job functions done outside a company instead of having an in-house department or employee handle them” (Entrepreneur.com 1).With every choice comes consequences some are benefeicial some are negative. Outsourcing benefits are saving money to expand business. Interviewed by CNN, Mike Scanlin, a small business owner, has saved half a million dollars due to outsourcing. Instead of paying someone $150 an hour in the U.S he pays people on the eastern hemisphere $15 an hour. There are many other business who have performed such task such as Allstate, AT&T, Coca-Cola, Expedia, and many more. Outsourcing also comes with a hard price: job loss. Techsunite.org states that outsourcing is a terrorist threat and that over 500,000 jobs have been outcourced since 2000 and over 250,000 were lost due to outsourcing. Outsourcing has been one of the top ten ways to lose a job since 2000. There has been over thousands of companies that outsource jobs abroad. Also, their are companies considering moving to the outsource method; which means more job lose. When people lose their jobs they lose their homes when intell makes them homeless. Large homeless rates make our american pride questionable. The question becomes are we really united or are we cheap? If all companies stopped outsourcing and kept all jobs here in the U.S the homeless rate would decrease dramastically.
Romeo and Juliet, written by William Shakespeare, is a story of two young lovers. These two hearts, Romeo Montague and Juliet Capulet belong to feuding families. The family feud causes them to keep their love a secret and therefore only Romeo, Juliet, Benvolio, the Nurse and Friar Lawrence know of their love.

They let themselves do almost anything for the other and at times it seems like too much to do, even for the one they love. Although fate and character traits play a key role in the play, ultimately Rome and Juliet’s personal choices lead to their downfall.Fate originates all of the conflicts in Romeo and Juliet, from when they met until they die.
Earth has physically changed millions of times due to moving tectonic plates which has formed our planets mountains; altering the way our environment looks. Volcanoes, (formed when magma from the upper mantle heads to the surface, causing the land to rise) are one of nature’s finest spectacles. These geographical forces have erupted many times; from small-scale eruptions to cataclysmic ones; making them a force to consider about. Therefore the past is useful in predicting possible future eruptions as in terms of the effects they can have on civilisation, they are unpredictable in what they can produce.
Another example from the text deals with the fact that it is in your power whether to act or ignore the scream. The 1964 case depicts Kitty Genovese as a helpless woman in need of assistance. Unfortunately, the woman screamed for help and nobody came to her aid. This scenario demonstrates how society chose to ignore her calls due to personal reasons.
