It is often said that the most difficult activity that a human being can face is making decisions, and not only important ones, but in general. It is true to a certain extent, especially for some people who, due to various reasons (usually rooted in their upbringing) find difficulty making even the simplest and most unimportant decisions, for example, what to wear or what to have for dinner. If you ever encounter similar problems at any level, it may be a good idea to apply a certain decision-making technique for your assistance.
In modern times it became very fashionable to treat the city as a form of human coexistence in a definitely negative way due to a variety of reasons: both the industrial plants and streets overfilled with cars produce most pollution on the Earth, people have to live in overcrowded conditions, drink water full of chemical substances, eat food of uncertain origins and so on. However, can the city really be considered to be responsible for our troubles?
The discovery of antibiotics could be readily placed among the inventions that truly changed the face of the world and the way of humans’ existence. However, nowadays they are often considered to be something not so good, the last resort or even something that shouldn’t be used at all. However, are there any foundations to this theory?
Ecologists often say that every time any species disappears, it disappears for good, without any possibility for it to come back. It is said that every time this happens the diversity of organic life decreases and suffers and, because we cause it, we should do everything to protect the species that can potentially disappear.
The world has changed drastically over the last 20 and especially the last 10 years; what we see now is very distant from what existed at that time. That means, naturally, that children that were born within this period, especially during the last decade, are growing up in a completely different environment than the one to which we were accustomed. They are surrounded by computers and other digital devices from the day they are born; what was an unusual novelty for us is an integral part of their life, something that is as usual for us as cars and phones.
Teaching is a very delicate process that requires a lot of attention from the point of view of teacher. According to an opinion that has been very popular during the last few decades, it is creative methods of teaching that really make this process effective. But is it really that important?
We live in the time when it is no longer possible to avoid computers even if you feel dislike towards them. Even ten years ago the situation was somewhat different – they were, of course, very important, but there still was possibility for those who did not want to do anything with computer technologies to go on working in their fields of activity without having to learn all these high-tech devices.
People have enjoyed a state of fear since a long time ago, but only the appearance of the cinema made depiction of fear as real and graphical as the real life can be. Over the course of the 20th century the horror movies of all kinds, from crudely primitive to rather intellectual have been extremely popular and remain to be so in the 21st one. But why?
For some mysterious reason the name of Alfred Hitchcock is related in the public consciousness to the genre of horror movies, although the closest to horror movies he ever filmed are his iconic psychological thrillers, which are about as similar to horror films as Rembrandt’s paintings to comic books. Vertigo is one of the most picturesque examples of his creative work, becoming the constant source of inspiration and imitation for the decades after it had been shot.
The Walking Dead is a post-apocalyptic television show based on the ongoing series of black-and-white comic books of the same name. One may think that a film about zombie-apocalypse cannot be anything else but low-quality trash, but, surprisingly, The Walking Dead shows that it is not always so.
