James Herriot is the pen-name of a British veterinary surgeon James Alfred Wight, who may be considered one of the most well-known veterinarians in the world throughout the existence of the profession. Having spent most of his life in Yorkshire countryside, treating animals of all kinds, he finally found a way to tell the world about what the work of veterinarian is: about its difficulties, sad and funny moments, about people who surrounded him throughout his work in this area.
What Is the Main Thing in One’s Life?
In my opinion, the most important thing in a person’s life is the attainment of happiness. However, before attaining it, one should define it first.
Key to the Successful Relationship
A normal new family cell starts with just two people, a man and a woman, who have to somehow build up a relationship and sustain it over time, which, naturally, meets a lot of difficulties.
Effects of Plagiarism
Plagiarism, one of the main scourges of the academic life, is quite an easy concept, but, nonetheless, harmful. In short, to plagiarize means to steal someone else’s idea or part of work and use it as your own. But why exactly it is considered to be so bad and immoral? And it is really considered immoral and a serious offence. In case it is discovered, it may lead to very unpleasant consequences; the higher the position of the offender is, the more unpleasant they are.
Lady Macbeth as the Most Unusual Shakespeare’s Villain
Lady Macbeth is often considered to be one of the most interesting and unusual characters in the works of William Shakespeare, and rightly so. Uncharacteristically for himself, Shakespeare gives the major, although rather sinister, role to a woman, while making her husband a little more than the executor of crime.
There Is No Place Like Home
Every person has a place which he treats differently than any other, the place where he feels more comfortable than anywhere else. It is not exactly the place where the person lives – it may be some house or flat from the past, for example, the one he or she lived during childhood in. But what is so specific about it that it plays such an important role in the culture of many nations of the world?
History of Texas
Texas stands out among the majority of other States because it has a history that is unique. Unlike others, it hadn’t been colonized by the British or the Americans in order to naturally turn into the part of the US, but was a province first of Spain and then of Mexico that declared independence from its mother country in 1810. It had been a vast territory, only scarcely populated and constantly suffering from the Indian raids (mostly by Comanche and Kiowa) due to the fact of being a long distance away from the capital of Mexico that has been busy all the time trying to restore any kind of order in the post-revolution times.
High School Attendance Policy
It is a usual practice to look over the students’ attendance and make sure they miss as few classes as it is possible; the ones that miss too often may have certain sanctions applied to them, no matter what their reasons are and how quickly they are progressing. To my mind, this approach is not only anachronistic; it shouldn’t have existed in the first place. But now it looks especially out of place.
Myths about GMO Food
Genetically modified objects (or, in this particular case, food) are living organisms, DNA of which was modified in some way in order to bring about some useful changes (heat or herbicide resistance, for example). In the public conscience, however, GMO have long ago turned into a scarecrow, because the majority of people who, of course, don’t know anything in the field biology, consider them to be dangerous due to different reasons – some beliefs are utterly primitive and include people growing horns and tails due to the modified genes fusing with their own, a bit more sophisticated ones propose other prospects, from infertility to various diseases.
All Hallows’ Eve by Charles Williams
Charles Williams was one of the less known members of the literature club “The Inklings”, represented by such world-famous writers as C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien. He didn’t manage to achieve the same level of fame, but for a limited audience his 7 novels represent a much greater treasure than even The Lord of the Rings and The Chronicles of Narnia.
