Our world is not perfect as well as people who surround us. Many people do have problems at work. Sometimes it is really hard to overcome the situation. It is much harder to do when you have no chance to quit and actually when you just do not want to leave the position. It may happen that you like your job but not people you are working with. Then every single day would be stressful and you would have to cope with it somehow. If the job is significant to you then the only possible way to solve the problem is try to compromise. Otherwise you would fail.
Do not get me wrong, I like to be adult as know there is a great amount of possibilities in front of me and the chance to make all my dreams come true. I enjoy making decisions of my own, feeling free, earning money and traveling without providing a detailed report of my adventures. I am just afraid to be adult in a negative sense.
The adult woman I do not want to turn into is always reasonable and logical; she can not perform any spontaneous action, like walking bare feet along the main street of the city or leaving for some exotic country to become diving instructor. She do not like when her neighbors listen to too loud music and call the police to calm them down instead of joining the party. She always counts money and saves them for something essential, like a new flat or car, instead of spending a part of them on some dress she wanted to buy on an impulse. She tries to keep even love under her control as she chooses her partner according to the matter of convenience, not feelings.
Due to the process of globalization which gains an incredible speed all over the world traveling to different, even the remotest places of the world has become a question of no difficulty. What can be easier than arrive in another country, book a hotel room and live there for as long as you like. However, some hotel keepers find it boring and offer us some extraordinary kinds of accommodation. In search of adventures and new emotions people agree to live in the strangest places some of them can hardly be called convenient.
The aggressiveness of the modern world, terrorism and the threat of nuclear wars have invoked the protest of the society which is expressed in different kinds of social movements. Food Not Bombs, for example, is a world wide organization which protests against militarism, poverty and hunger. The main idea of this social movement is that the governments should review their priorities and spend more money on food for those who are in need, rather than on wars and arms race.
Food Not Bombs presents independent groups of activists whose aim is to feed all hungry people. They provide mostly vegetarian or vegan food for free. The choice of vegan food is explained by the fact that it is useful for health, and besides, they say that if people use all territory occupied by meat producing industry for growing fructiferous plants the problem of hunger in the world will be solved.
The seal hunting in Canada constitutes a real danger to the living of the local seal population as it is reported today. But that is not the single threat to the well-being of these animals. The International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) starts the campaign to save the seals worldwide. The efforts of the activists find the support in a wide number of countries including Canada, Russia and Namibia. The citizens of these countries offer their help no matter if they are scientists, officials or just the people who care about the animals.
Higher education is the highest priority of any civilized person. Why? In the modern world the fact one has higher education means his belonging to the best layer of human society. Unlike the primary and secondary education, higher education even in the developed countries isn’t common. In the most developed countries half of population has higher education, but if we take the developing counties of Africa, the things differ.
To enter an African university, it is necessary to get the certificate called SSCE. Exams are carried out by the African examination councils. For obtaining this certificate it is necessary to pass the following exams: exact sciences, English, technical and professional subjects. After these examinations it is possible to enter a university, a technical secondary institute or a teacher training college. In African countries there have always been great difficulties with any education, to say nothing of the higher one. Access to higher education remains limited, especially for country people. Though, distance education is very popular there: it’s a common practice to send students abroad to study.
The most surprising image of a beautiful person was probably in the culture of the ancient Maya tribes. Being the dedicated sun worshipers they were eager to resemble their god. The flat and round face with the nose which is not protruded forward was the most desirable one. These “perfect” face features were the ones that everyone wanted to have. The offspings of Maya still have the batter noses. To reach this effect the scull of a baby was fixed in a special pieces of wood. The flexible bones of a baby were deformed in the way which made his head reminding the disc of the sun. The sign of the feminine beauty was the squinting. When a baby girl was born her parents hang the colored balls above her bed and the girl was growing cross-eyed for sure. Another fashionable trick was to grind the teeth down and cover the remains with the ruby or emerald powder. The adult women covered their body with a sticky smelly red butter. Wearing that strange greasy film on their bodies they were considered to be elegant. They also painted their faces.
