I remember hearing about militant groups that trained children to be soldiers in their armies. This notably happens in Africa where warlords forcibly deploy and enlist children to be in their ranks to fight the government or the rebel groups. Although Ender is not really forced to go to Battle School he nevertheless is a child soldier. He is fighting to kill the buggers and though he is not physically killing them he is commanding troops to kill them. However there are some differences such as the fact that Ender could quit while in the Battle School.
Not far from the southern portion of Florida, there lays a Caribbean island named Cuba, a country with an odd relationship with the United States. Many Americans haven’t had the opportunity to interact with this native Cuban culture. This lack of interaction is due to the “freeze” of relations between the U.S. and Cuba beginning in 1960. This embargo was necessary back then, but now I believe that the total embargo is ultimately hindering both countries economically and culturally.
Depending on where you go in the world, you will hear a bunce of different stories and theories about how the laws in this universe works. Some will show to different religions, while others will tell you there’s the scientific laws that make things happen. There are people out there that believes that everything in your life is there because you’ve either worked for or chosen it to be there. Others again believe that everything that happens in your life is happening because of destiny. No one can say for sure which theory is more right or wrong than the other.
Hollywood marriages often only last for a couple of years. When both works in the entertainment business it’s hard to find time for each other.

It’s good to have a person in the same business in that form that you have a partner that really understand what you’re going through. But how do you find the balance in a relationship where every little fight or new detail are shared with the rest of the world?
After researching yet another database, I have found out much more about my research topic. Penguin behavior between males and females directly coincides with the mating process. Vocal and visual signals presented by the males allow the females to understand whether or not the male is fit for breeding, as well as personal protection. Some females will offer stones to the males in exchange for intercourse, which is extremely intriguing. It displays a need for affection, and a sort of trade between the male and female.
Something that I have been interested in learning more about has been the jealousy between kids’ parents marrying someone else who is not their other birth parent. I remember thinking about it when I thought about my friend. She has been depressed lately because she feel as if her dad is starting to care more about her stepmother than he cares for her. Lately, the issue has caught my eye again.
Something that I have been interested in learning more about has been why do some people have a fear of beautiful women? I remember facebook friends and I talking about it when I had put a status up regarding this topic, but I barely knew any information on it. Lately, the issue has caught my eye again. I know that many people didn’t even know this could possibly be a phobia. From what I have heard, this is a real phobia mainly in men. For example, I heard that people with this phobia become nervous and erratic. Now that’s just what I’ve heard, it may or may not be true.
