Influential people

To tell the truth, I do not like to accept some advices from the people around me except my father. I am not similar to other girls and prefer to play with some boys because I think that the boy will do me a favor when I am in trouble. Hence, in my mind, I often share something unhappy with my father and wish that he can provide some good opinions with me. As a result, my father is very important for me, just like the latale money.In this morning, I choose to take the bus to work as usual. When I walk into the compartment, I am moved by a scene that happened in the bus. I saw a man with his son were also in the bus. Maybe, because the boy is very naughty that he threw some rubbish to the body of a beautiful lady who wears very fashionably. Of course, the lady was very angry and asked the man for some compensation. However, the man did not have enough money to do that for her at that moment and without methods, he left an address and a home telephone number to her and promised that he would make some compensation for her when he come back home. Then the lady did not have opinions and accepted his ideas.Although the matter is very little, it let me to recall my father who lives in my hometown where is far from my working place. In my memory, the things similar to the matter happened in my childhood. As a student, I often went to the net bar to play the game using the latale online gold after school. Every time, I would forget the time for dinner then my father usually found me in the bar and persuaded me to go back home at once. From then on, the relationship between us became very strong, not just because he gave me a lot of spare money to buy latale online gold. My father is my god who can give me some timely favor so that I love him very much and will never give up playing the game with the latale gold in order to miss him in the lonely time.So far, although my mother would not like me to play the game by the cheap latale gold and reject my behavior, I still insist on going on the way of the game.

The mind-blowing science of black holes

What we know about black holes is both fascinating and scary.

Videos
  • When it comes to black holes, science simultaneously knows so much and so little, which is why they are so fascinating. Focusing on what we do know, this group of astronomers, educators, and physicists share some of the most incredible facts about the powerful and mysterious objects.
  • A black hole is so massive that light (and anything else it swallows) can't escape, says Bill Nye. You can't see a black hole, theoretical physicists Michio Kaku and Christophe Galfard explain, because it is too dark. What you can see, however, is the distortion of light around it caused by its extreme gravity.
  • Explaining one unsettling concept from astrophysics called spaghettification, astronomer Michelle Thaller says that "If you got close to a black hole there would be tides over your body that small that would rip you apart into basically a strand of spaghetti that would fall down the black hole."
