Domestic pets are a source of pleasure and fun. Most boys and girls love to keep pets. Pets help an individual to achieve a healthy state of mind and playing with our pets makes most of us happy.

Though dogs are the most preferred pets because of their faithfulness and honesty, but still there are thousands of cat lovers in the world.

The cat is a beautiful small animal resembling the likes of a tiger. It lives on the streets as well as in our houses and is one of our favourite pet animals. The cat’s body is covered with soft, silky hair and has four short legs and sharp claws hidden in the fleshy pads.

Cats seldom make any noise while walking or running. Cats have bright eyes and they can even see in the dark. Cat is found all over the world and milk is cats favourite. Many people keep cats as their pets to scare away the mice. But unlike dogs, cats are selfish and dishonest. Cats even steal food from our kitchen and are very ferocious at times.

But in general cats are gentle and playful and they love playing with the children. Many people think that cat is a harmful animal for it spreads various disease like diphtheria and thus they advice to keep children away from the cat. Some people also associate black magic with a cat.

The most significant superstition related to the cat is that if a cat crosses the way of a passerby, he or she should not walk past. This is just a superstition because common sense says that when a cat crosses a road it means that the animal needs to go somewhere. It is as simple as that.

Cats possess scary grey coloured eyes and most of the children are scared of cat’s eyes. A cat gives birth to three to four kittens at a time and these kittens need proper love and care when they are born. Taming a cat is not difficult if one is determined to do so. When it comes to food, a variety of cat food is available in the market with…...

...Book is the best friend, a human being can have.This stay with us during the whole life: in babyhood we hear parents read us fairy tales, in our teens we swallow exciting suspense novels page after page and when we become adults we still find gripping books that absorb us. I like to spend my free time reading a good book. I’m fond of reading because it provides a lot of space for imagination: I like to conjure the characters and how they look like, I always try to predict how I would behave if I were in the shoes of this or that character. When I read a book I usually entirely immerse myself into it; I live in this imaginary world and enjoy it. My favorite book, The Alchemist, written by my favorite writer Paulo Coelho, is a beautiful Fable about following your dreams. Santiago is the central character, and as this fable begins the reader sees the world mainly through his point of view. Santiago’s lifestyle as a shepherd has provided him with a lot of freedom. Santiago realizes that dreaming about what you don’t have is what makes life interesting.That’s why he is particularly suited to findin his Personal Legend. And also he realizes that playing it safe is often more threatening to his freedom than taking a risk. At times we see and feel his fear, but along his journey, he learns to listen to his heart and to trust what his heart teaches him. Santiago makes great change from beginning, to the end of his journey. He learns how to stay true to his dreams and to understand the......

...Seminar in Academic Inquiry: Banned Books LST 100-05 Nicolette Ford Fall, 2012 “I attest that I have not consulted my notes nor used any electronic resources except for my word processor in the completion of this exam.” 1. Select one of the texts that we have discussed in class, and identify one or two elements of it that would cause it to be challenged in schools and libraries. Then, argue whether those elements justify banning. In the book Fahrenheit 451, there are many elements that would be considered inappropriate for schools and libraries. Some of these elements include violent behavior. For example, when the firemen burn the woman and her books, while the woman is still alive. Many people think this is gruesome and unnecessary. In my opinion, it makes the book that much stronger. The element of violence in this book does not justify banning. I believe the book holds such a strong meaning and banning it for something that only makes it stronger is ridiculous. 2. Select one of the texts that we have discussed in class, and identify one or two elements of it that would cause it to be challenged on religious grounds. Then, argue whether those elements justify banning. One of the texts that we have discussed in class is The Handmaid’s Tale. I think this is a good example of a book being challenged on religious grounds for many reasons. In the novel we are put into this world where woman have no rights, we learn that this world began...

..., “How does vision work?” is a bad question because it’s too general. In cognitive psychology, as in most fields, the devil is in the details, but that’s where the fun is, too. Vision, attention, and memory become interesting only when you pose more specific questions about them. This book poses questions about the mind and describes the answers cognitive psychologists have uncovered. The first thing we have to decide, then, is which questions to ask—how to get more specific than “How do we see?” You’ll find that the questions we ask are deeply influenced by assumptions we make about the mind and, indeed, assumptions about what it is to be human. It seems obvious that it would be better not to make assumptions when we are just starting to study the mind. Therefore, the first question to take up is Why make assumptions? As we’ll see, the answer is that it is difficult or impossible to avoid making assumptions. If that’s true, we should at least be clear about the assumptions cognitive psychologists make. If you know the assumptions, it will be clearer to you why cognitive psychologists ask the questions they do, and if you understand why they ask a particular question, it will be much easier to understand the answer. But the approach of cognitive psychologists developed in part as a response to other approaches that people had tried but that seemed to have flaws. Thus, our second question is How did philosophers and early psychologists study the mind? As we’ll see, a number of...

...After reading a couple chapters of this book I have came to the conclusion that it shows you a lot of strong points on how Thomas L Friedman thinks about the world. He explains why it all is happening and how the international system is transforming the world affairs. It also shows you all the things that he said in his book that they would come true and some of those things actually did come true. This books helps you understand about how globalization is working and why it is happening. It also shows and tells you how the world reacts to it and what the bad and good thing about globalization. In the first part of the book of the books it explains what the title ‘Lexus’ and ‘’olive tree’’ means. The Lexus stands for half the world emerging from the Cold War and people intent on building a better Lexus, modernizing economies in order to thrive globalization. The olive tree stands for the other half who are still caught up in the fight over who owns which "olive tree." The Lexus stands for the emerging of new things like 300 new Lexus being built everyday and people are moving on from the Cold War. The Olive tree represents our roots, anchors us, and identifies us. The Olive Tree also represents people fighting over who own what. That was the main thing in the beginning because it tells you what the title is all about. After that it goes into more detail about other things about globalization. It asks what a golden straightjacket it the golden straightjacket is...

... games, game design is its own art form and has been around long before computers, polygons, and even the discovery of electricity. It is these basic principles of game design that we cover in this book—design distilled down to its basic essence. Not surprisingly, many of today’s greatest game designers got their start playing and designing non-digital games, and some still use paper prototyping in their present-day designs. When thinking of game design, think in terms of the board game Go, a Chinese game thousands of years old (see Figure 1.2). It requires no computer programming or polygon models to play. Yet its rules, simple as they are, allow for a depth of strategy so great that it is still played heavily today. While many of the games enjoyed today may not be as popular as Go a thousand years from now, there is no reason why such a game could not be created. FIGURE 1.2 Go board. Image from the Wikipedia Commons Chapter 1 The Basics T YPES OF 5 D ESIGN Just as there are many types of games, there are many types of game design, too. World design is the creation of the overall backstory, setting, and theme of the game. While it’s generally performed by the lead or sole designer, it often determines the scope of the other design tasks listed below. System design is the creation of rules and underlying mathematical patterns in a game. This is the only game design task that is common to all games, because all games have rules.......

Book Review

...Tamiwe H. Sichinga Book Review The End of Prosperity- Arthur B Laffer, Stephen Moore, and Peter Moore The End of Prosperity is one of most informative book to be read, it has both economic facts, and controversies especially when it come to the country’s economic status --people respond to the incentives. The book or the authors appear to be against the notion of President Obama’s leadership in regards to economic policy. I wouldn’t be surprised if the writers are more republicans than anything else because it appears they glorify Ronald Reagan as the best leader when it came to economic policy. Yes they do mention Bill Clinton but credit appears to be given more to the former.But even though they are against Obama I do support them on the issue of taxes. The book explains in the simplest language about the advantages of lowering taxes. By lowering taxes there is a better chance of increasing the balancing of the budget. The authors strongly warn than tax increments risks the economy resulting in higher employment rates, negative growth and a declining stock market. The book also notes that taxes force businesses to move off-shore to countries like The Netherlands which has conversely low tax rates. This is a very clear explanation even to the common man on the street. It clearly states that keeping businesses at home has a positive effect on both workers and businesses therefore creating better wages and job increments as well as generating more revenues that benefit...
