A beautiful love story
Now, I can remember clearly that we met in a cold winter and the weather is snowing all the time. That memorial day, I carried the luggage from the railway station lonely. Staring at the white sky, I felt cold and unhelpful. Suddenly, a young man walked towards to me and gave a warm smile. Then he talked with me and wanted me to tell him how to get the nearest post station. Because I was a stranger there, I only said sorry. He still said thanks to me and walked away.Maybe I can not see him once more, but one night in the internet bar we saw each other again. This time he seemed sad through his face, so I gave him a regard initiatively. As following, we made friends and told my name to him. As I am curious about what he played in the internet, I inquired what he did. He was very happy and asked me play the game. Although I had nothing on the internet game and didn’t like it at all, I had a strong feeling that he liked the game with rappelz rupees very much. Because of his interest, I also told him that I also liked the internet game and was willing to play it by myself. He thought that I wanted to play the game and introduced the game to me. At first, I indeed knew nothing about it, so he taught me and gave me some rappelz gold with which I can enter into the game. At the same time, he supplied some perfect ideas with me, such as: how to buy rappelz money, which kind of rappelz rupees is useful and safe, where to buy rappelz money and what kind of gold is the cheap rappelz rupees and so on. As for his good opinions, I showed how I thanked him and let him know we had some similar hobbies. Of course, he also agreed with me and promised that he would spend more time to stay with me and help me face the hard life.After that accidental meeting, we also fell into love and realize the promise to live together. When I recollect what happened in how to buy rupees, I only want to thanks the game which hauled us and granted the chance for the understanding between us.So far, we have spent our leisure time to play the game in order to promote the harmonious relationship and tell other friends to involve in it.

The 21st century is experiencing an Asianization of politics, business, and culture.
- Our theories about the world, even about history or the geopolitics of the present, tend to be shaped by Anglo perspectives of the Western industrial democracies, particularly those in the United States and the United Kingdom.
- The West, however, is not united. Canada, for instance, acts in many ways that are not in line with American or British policies, particularly in regard to populism. Even if it were united, though, it would not represent most of the world's population.
- European ideas, such as parliamentary democracy and civil service, spread across the world in the 19th century. In the 20th century, American values such as entrepreneurialism went global. In the 21st century, however, what we're seeing now is an Asianization — an Asian confidence that they can determine their own political systems, their own models, and adapt to their own circumstances.
Research has shown that men today have less testosterone than they used to. What's happening?
- Several studies have confirmed that testosterone counts in men are lower than what they used to be just a few decades ago.
- While most men still have perfectly healthy testosterone levels, its reduction puts men at risk for many negative health outcomes.
- The cause of this drop in testosterone isn't entirely clear, but evidence suggests that it is a multifaceted result of modern, industrialized life.
Can sensitive coral reefs survive another human generation?
- Coral reefs may not be able to survive another human decade because of the environmental stress we have placed on them, says author David Wallace-Wells. He posits that without meaningful changes to policies, the trend of them dying out, even in light of recent advances, will continue.
- The World Wildlife Fund says that 60 percent of all vertebrate mammals have died since just 1970. On top of this, recent studies suggest that insect populations may have fallen by as much as 75 percent over the last few decades.
- If it were not for our oceans, the planet would probably be already several degrees warmer than it is today due to the emissions we've expelled into the atmosphere.
