Birthday gift

In the world, I think that I am a lucky and happy girl because there are a lot of people who give me their best wishes during each birthday party. Therefore, I usually long for my next birthday when I go through the last one. In the birthday party, I will get different kinds of gifts from my parents, my grandfather and my good friends. Besides, I can have a chance to obtain a wishing cap from my grandfather that he will do me a favor to complete my dream.Similar to the peers, I finished the College Entrance Examination without difficulty to enroll into the college. Just at that time, my birthday was coming and my family prepared to hold a party to celebrate the good news. According to the arrangement in advance, the party was held in our house and I invited a lot of friends to take part into it. During the party, I got a large number of beautiful presents and good wishes from them, besides my grandfather. I liked those gifts very much and became excited to watch a special gift that my grandfather gave me. It is nothing but some wow gold with which I can enter into the game freely. Talking about the net game, I should say lots of words on it because it benefits me a lot. At the same time, I believe that only my grandfather can understand me well and he will be my support to supply me with the money to buy enough World of Warcraft Gold to enjoy the game.In order to express my thanks, I sung an English song in the party and also brought my happiness to them hoping that they will be happy like me. After the party, my grandfather told me that my parents had also agreed me to play the net game with the warcraft gold in my spare time and they would give me some money to buy wow gold as their gifts. Thanks to you, my grandfather. You will the most important person in my life. I was so pleased that I jumped high with my grandfather. Suddenly, my grandfather became younger than before and there was a large smile on the face. From then on, I indeed go to the bar without the my agreement to play the game with my other friends that I made online and with their help, I get lots of cheap wow gold to improve the level of my character in the game.

Is this why time speeds up as we age?

We take fewer mental pictures per second.

Mind & Brain
  • Recent memories run in our brains like sped-up old movies.
  • In childhood, we capture images in our memory much more quickly.
  • The complexities of grownup neural pathways are no match for the direct routes of young brains.

New alternative to Trump's wall would create jobs, renewable energy, and increase border security

A consortium of scientists and engineers have proposed that the U.S. and Mexico build a series of guarded solar, wind, natural gas and desalination facilities along the entirety of the border.

Politics & Current Affairs
  • The proposal was recently presented to several U.S. members of Congress.
  • The plan still calls for border security, considering all of the facilities along the border would be guarded and connected by physical barriers.
  • It's undoubtedly an expensive and complicated proposal, but the team argues that border regions are ideal spots for wind and solar energy, and that they could use the jobs and fresh water the energy park would create.

Why are so many objects in space shaped like discs?

It's one of the most consistent patterns in the unviverse. What causes it?

Videos
  • Spinning discs are everywhere – just look at our solar system, the rings of Saturn, and all the spiral galaxies in the universe.
  • Spinning discs are the result of two things: The force of gravity and a phenomenon in physics called the conservation of angular momentum.
  • Gravity brings matter together; the closer the matter gets, the more it accelerates – much like an ice skater who spins faster and faster the closer their arms get to their body. Then, this spinning cloud collapses due to up and down and diagonal collisions that cancel each other out until the only motion they have in common is the spin – and voila: A flat disc.
