Unrest in the Middle East

         Since their independence, from the Ottoman Empire, after World War I, the Middle East has been in chaos. There are many reasons. Most of these countries are ruled by Monarchs and their system of ruling is a dictatorship. Another cause is that they control the biggest oil reserves in the world. This makes them very wealthy, however the wealth is not distributed equally. At the present time, this is causing an uproar, which is quickly turning into a revolution. People are hungry for Democracy and are dying to achieve it, for the future of there homeland.
          Unfortunately, because of our dependency on oil, the west may be drawn into another war. At the present time, we can not afford to be involved in another war. Our military is already stretched thin, as we are already fighting in two wars. In addition, unrest is also worsened by the territorial feuds between Israel and Palestine. In conclusion, these factors will continue to make the Middle East a powder keg, for years to come until Democracy is achieved and the wealth is more evenly divided.

How Weather Affects People

           One of natures most unpredictable phenomenons is the weather. However, it is necessary for living. Weather causes many droughts around the world, bringing destruction to living plants, people, and livestock. Many countries have gone to war because of this precious liquid. Weather, also can cause many problems to human beings in their daily life.
           I enjoy rainy days because I can spend my time at home reading a good book or doing my homework. While sitting in Canada Library, I love to look out the window and see the mountains covered with fog. On the other hand, on a sunny day, I enjoy a long walk on the levee looking at the bay. I feel that I adapt very well to changes in weather. I have lived in many countries in the world and have never experienced any problems. Learning to adjust my wardrobe, according to the country in which I am residing.
