Avoiding Wastage of Food Essay:
According to the UN report, published in the media, every year, nearly one-third of all foodstuffs intended for human consumption (around 1.3 billion tons), is thrown out.
Almost 30% of agricultural land in the world is vain, and food in the form of waste produced more greenhouse gases than any country except China and the United States. UN experts have warned that food waste pose a danger to the planet’s climate and are advised to encourage users in developed countries to buy only the products and be practical in using left-over food.
Reducing food waste will not only help avoid contamination and decreasing natural resources, but also reduces the need to increase food production to meet the demand of the growing population in the future. Continue reading

So, what is the enigma of this seems to be a simple word? What is freedom? And what is importance of freedom in our life.

I realize there may be once a time when I will no longer be able to make health care – or even any – decisions. If and when the time comes, I want my best friend to make them for me. The members of family – existing and future – are the people I love and trust, still in a difficult situation they might find it hard to make the best choice. I am afraid that emotions and fear will prevent them from thinking clearly and rationally. In the hour of need I’d like someone close but reasonable to made health care decisions for me when I will not be able to make them. If my best friend will not be able or willing to make choice for me, then my cousin and my spouse are my second and third choices.
As for the medical treatment – first of all – I do not want to be in pain. I would like to receive enough food, fluid and medicine, as well as be kept warm and clean. I don’t want the doctors and nurses to do or omit doing anything that will result in taking my life. I want to have life-support treatment if my doctor believes that would help in cases of being close to death, in coma and not expected to recover, or with permanent or severe brain damage. But if the life-support treatment does not help my condition and symptoms, I want my doctor stop giving it. Continue reading
Compare and contrast the Cold War in XX century and the War on terrorism in XXI century
The main difference between the Cold War and the War of Terror is that they happened under different systems of international relations. America’s victory in the World War II established it as one of the world’s leaders under the bipolar system. ‘Polarity’ is a term used by international relations scholars to describe the alignment of forces and balance of powers on the world arena.
The bipolar system — the standoff between NATO members and the countries of Warsaw Pact — defined international relations for the most of the second half of the 20th century. The U.S. pursues containment policy to prevent the global spread of communism and victory of the USSR over the “free world.” After the collapse of the USSR, it was unclear what system of international relations was to follow.
Many believed that it was a historic chance to build a truly multipolar world order based on the principles of multilateralism. However, their hopes faded soon. While early 1990s left some space for the development of the multipolarity, the dawn of the 21st century clearly showed that the world has only one global leader eager to strengthen its hegemony. The importance of the U.S. on the global arena encouraged the present administration to promote its overseas interests more aggressively. No one would doubt the present system of international relations is a typical example of unipolarity – a system based on the principle of unilateralism. The criteria used to determine the nature of an international system, i.e. military power, economic strength, and cultural hegemony (Russett, 2003), clearly suggest that the U.S. is a global hegemony.

Writing a Critical Essay on Beowulf:
Beowulf is the oldest example of the Anglo-Saxon literature and probably the oldest example of Old English literature. The poem consists of 3182 lines and is supposed to be a real treasure, because very few ancient texts survived in their full variant till modern times. The poem was written in 7 – 8th century but the first mention about it was only in 10th century AD. The poem consists of two chapters and describes the life of the main character Beowulf, who was the warrior from Scandinavian tribe of Geats. The hero probably got his name from the names of the animals “bear” and “wolf” and according to another version the name Beowulf comes from “bee” and “wolf”.

We Should Focus on Good Health Essay:
Practicing medics often wonder how long their patients let progress a disease on a disorder before consulting a doctor. Certainly, there are cases where medical care is critical to the preservation of health and life. However, according to the WHO, medics contribution to the preservation of health is no more than 10-15%, but it is a patient lifestyle that matters in all 50%. Heredity and the environment equally divide the remaining share.
A lot in maintaining their own health really depends on the patient himself, noted the head of the organizational-methodological department of the Minsk City Heart Center Anna Zaharevich. “Good health and active longevity should be in focus for any sensible person,” – stressed the expert.
Meanwhile, people often tend to place the responsibility for health problems on anyone, except for themselves. As an example the representative of Cardiology Center recalls an “Together for a Healthy Heart,” which was held in April, in specially organized 129 places in two days blood pressure of 30 117 people aged 18 to 75 was measured.

Inspiration in My Life Essay:
Probably, I could not live without inspiration, it is sometimes the only thing that makes me do something. Inspiration in my life is always positive emotions that, it is unclear how, pushing me forward.
Most interesting is that it always comes when you least expect it at all. It can come in the simplest of things: when you drink coffee or just hang out with your friends, but it is always difficult to grasp.
And to everyone it comes in different ways: to someone in a song or movie, but for someone traveling or people. Inspiration comes in the morning or evening. It comes during riding bicycle or driving the car, in the process of communication, or perhaps when your are alone.

This book made me reconsider my views on the world, understand what is hidden behind closed doors and the unknown hidden sanctuary. It made me think about the meaning of life and pay attention to what I did not see before. Continue reading
