First, let me tell you where I’m coming from. Before I saw “The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring”, I didn´t know the difference between an orc and an elf, or what Middle-earth was in the middle of. This review is coming to you from a Tolkien-freezone. I went into Peter Jackson’s movie – the first of a trilogy – with no preconceptions. I came out, three hours later, sorry I’d have to wait a year to see what happens next in Frodo Baggins’s battle against the Dark Lord, Sauron, and thinking a trip to the bookstore to pick “The Two Towers” might be in order. (…)
This is a violent movie – too violent for little ones – and there are moments more “Matrix than medieval. Yet it transcends cheap thrills; we root for the survival of our heroes with depth of feeling that may come to a surprise. The movie keeps drawing you in deeper. Unlike so many overcooked action movies these days, “Fellowship” doesn’t entertain you into a stupor. It leaves you with your wits intact, hungry for more.

Causes and Effects of Climate Change
Glaciers are melting, sea levels are rising, cloud forests are dying, and wildlife is scrambling to keep pace. It has become clear that humans have caused most of the past century's warming by releasing heat-trapping gases as we power our modern lives. Called greenhouse gases, their levels are higher now than at any time in the last 800,000 years.
We often call the result global warming, but it is causing a set of changes to the Earth's climate, or long-term weather patterns, that varies from place to place. While many people think of global warming and climate change as synonyms, scientists use “climate change” when describing the complex shifts now affecting our planet's weather and climate systems — in part because some areas actually get cooler in the short term.
Climate change encompasses not oniy rising average temperatures but also extreme weather events, shifting wildlife populations and habitats, rising seas, and a range of other impacts. Ali of those changes are emerging as humans continue to add heat-trapping greenhouse gases to the atmosphere, changing the rhythms of climate that all living things have come to rely on.
What will we do — what can we do — to slow this human- caused warming? How will we cope with the changes we into motion? While we struggle to figure it all out, the fate of the Earth as we know it — coasts, forests, farms, and snow-capped mountains — hangs in the ffbalance.

It has been said that many people are victims of
calcuholism, a dependence on the use of calculators,
causing a diminished ability to do mathematics on
one’s own. Technology in schools, offices, and industry
 has resulted in an unfortunate overdependence
on all types of modern devices, but particularly on
calculators, Calcuholism can be avoided if schools
and individuals concentrate on using the mind to do
mathematics rather than relying on calculators for
 simple tasks.
Obviously the term calcuholism has been coined
with the intent to compare it to other addictions such
as alcoholism. While it is not nearly as serious as
alcoholism, dependence on the calculator can be
 harmful. Abuse of something normally beneficial may
lead to a harmful reliance on it. It is not that calculators
are harmful, but overuse may cause harm by making
people forget how to do mathematics with their own
 The problem arises from modern technological
advances. In schools, classes become more
complicated because of the technology for which
students must be prepared when they graduate.
Calculators are permitted and essential in many
 classes. In offices, calculators, computers, and word
processing systems are commonplace because they
increase speed and improve efficiency. Business
people may spend hours working with numbers
and rarely calculate mentally. In industry as well,
 the emphasis on advanced machines results in
individuals’ solving fewer mathematical problems on
To alleviate the problem, schools should
avoid allowing students to use calculators too
 early and should require sufficient in-class work
without them. All of us should restrict our use of
calculators and strive to do math on our own so that
we will not lose our basic math skills.
Calcuholism has increased in recent years
 and will continue to increase due to advances
in technology. To avoid dependency, we must
do mathematics with our minds from time to time rather
than with a machine.
