The British (serves 60 million)
Take some Picts, Celts and Silures
And let them settle,
Then overrun them with Roman conquerors.
Remove the Romans after approximately 400 years
Add lots of Norman French to some
Angles, Saxons, Jules and Vikings, then stir vigorously.
Sprinkle some fresh Indians, Malaysians, Bosnians,
lraqis and Bangladeshis together with some
Afghans, Spanish, Turkish, Kurdish, Japanese
Then add to the meliting pot.
Leave the ingredients to simmer.
As they mix and blend allow their languages to flourish
Binding them together with English.
Allow time to be cool.
Add some unity, understanding, and respect for the future,
Serve with justice
Note: All the ingredients are equally important. Treating one ingredient better than another will leave a bitter unpleasant taste.
Warning: An unequal spread of justice will damage the people and cause pain. Give justice and equality to all.

Polar bears live along shores and on sea ice in the icy cold Arctic. When sea ice forms over the ocean in cold weather, many polar bears, except pregnant females, head out onto the ice to hunt seals. Polar bears primarily eat seals. Polar bears often rest silently at a seal's breathing hole in the ice, waiting for a seal in the water to surface. A polar bear may also hunt by swimming beneath the ice.
In fall pregnant polar bears make dens in earth and snowbanks, where they'll stay through the winter and give birth to one to three cubs. In spring the mother emerges from her den followed by her cubs. During that time she will protect them and teach them how to hunt. The U.S., Canada, Denmark, Norway, and the Soviet Union signed an agreement in 1973 to protect polar bears.

Facebook Song lyrics
I wouldn’t call myself a social butterfly
And there’s not much that separates me from the other guy
But when I log in I begin to live
There’s an online world where I am king
Of a little website dedicated to me
With pictures of me and a list of my friends
And an unofficial record of the groups that I’m in
Before the internet, friendship was so tough
You actually had to be in people’s presence and stuff
Who would have thought that with a point and a click
I could know that Hope Floats is your favorite flick
I’m hooked on Facebook
I used to meet girls hanging out at the mall
Now I just wait for them to write on my wall
Oh! Link’s status changed, it says he’s playing the recorder...
How do you know this person?
Did you hook up with this person?
Do you need to request confirmation?
Or did you just think they looked cute...
From their picture on Facebook?
If the internet crashed all across the land
Or my Facebook account was deleted by the man
I’d carry around a picture of my face
And a summary of me typed out on a page

Text - ‘Noah's Ark’ seed vault chalks up a million crop varieties
A special vault storing the world's most precious seeds has now amassed over one million different plant varieties. It recently took delivery of a consignment of seeds from 70,000 different crops. Global Seed Vault is buried deep in an icy mountain in the Arctic Circle area of Svalbard, Norway. It was started ten years ago to safeguard the future of the world's food supply. Climate change is causing more and more droughts around the world, which are threatening different species of plants. The vault holds back-ups of seed samples stored in other seed banks around the world. Hannes Dempewolf, a senior scientist at the Crop Trust, said: “Hitting the million mark is really significant.” Workers at the vault were not sure they would reach the million mark so soon. The crisis in Syria meant there was a shortfall of 90,000 seeds at the vault. The latest delivery to the vault included cereal staples. There were also more unusual crops like the onion potato from Estonia and the Bambara groundnut, which is being developed as a drought tolerant crop in Africa. Marie Haga, executive director of the Crop Trust, spoke about the importance of the vault. She said: “Safeguarding such a huge range of seeds means scientists will have the best chance of developing nutritious and climate-resilient crops that can ensure future generations don't just survive, but thrive.”

An Arizona Ghost Story retold by
S. E. Schlosser
 A young miner was on his way to Dos Cabezas, where he heard there was a good chance of finding gold, when
he found himself lost and alone in the plains just north of the Dragoon Mountains. In the hot sun of midday, his burro
died because of the heat and the miner knew that he would shortly follow if he did not find a place to hide from the
sun and something to drink.
 The landscape oscillated before his eyes, and he tried to keep on walking, determined not to drop. But the heat
of the desert invaded his body and he started to perambulate. Then he collapsed.
He was awakened by a constant chug-chug sound. He raised his head from the hard and dry ground and
looked around him. It sounded like a train was approaching. But that was impossible. There were no tracks in this
inhospitable location, and no town for miles. Clackity-clack. Clackity-clack. The sound came again, louder this time.
 Chug-chug- chug. Then he heard the sound of an engine. He was hallucinating, he decided.
The miner put his head on his arms and waited for death to come. As he was there, feeling extremely hot, he
seemed to hear the words of the old miner who had told him about the good mining sites in the north. The
grey-haired man had spoken of a shadow train that had appeared out of nowhere and ran just above the plains
where no railroad tracks had ever been placed. The shadow train had passed across the desert before his very
 eyes. It had disappeared into the distance while the old man watched, turning into a mirage and then vanishing into
the strong light of the sun.
At the time, the young miner thought the old man was a bit of a nut. It was an illusion caused by the heat, he
presumed. But with the constant chug-chug-chug becoming louder in his ears, he was not so sure. He raised his
head again, and saw something, approaching rapidly. He heard the sharp whistle of a train, once, twice. After a
 while, he could make out the shape of a black steam engine pulling two cars.
The whistle sounded sharply again as the train advanced toward him. The young miner wanted to jump out of
its path, but he could not lift himself. He closed his eyes and braced for the impact, but the train slowed down and
stopped just a few feet from his head. A jolly-faced conductor stepped out of the train and came over to him. The
conductor bent down and lifted him from the ground. Someone else whom he couldn't see caught his feet, and he
 was carried inside a passenger car. Kind faces surrounded him. "Water," he murmured, __________ before losing
He was wakened by the feeling of cold water onto his face. He opened his eyes and saw a tall man wearing a
sheriff's badge carefully pouring water from a pitcher over him. The man held a cup to his lips, careful not to give
him too much water at once. The miner had difficulty to drink it. After having some of it, when he was finally able to
 speak, he asked the sheriff what had happened.
"A farmer found you nearly dead about five miles out of town," the sheriff answered laconically.
"What town?" he asked cautiously.
The sheriff looked at him strangely. "That sun sure must have messed with your head, son, if you can't even
remember where you were going to," said the sheriff. "You're in Wilcox, Arizona."
 "It's a stop on the train, then?" he asked hesitantly.
"Train? There ain't no train around for miles," said the sheriff. "You'd better have some more water and rest a
bit. That sun's nearly sent you loco!"
The young miner laid back down thankfully and closed his eyes. He wasn't sure why the shadow train had
come to his rescue, but he was sure glad it had stopped for him.
 Years later, the Southern Pacific Railroad put a track right through Wilcox, Arizona, and real trains started
rolling through Arizona. But some say the shadow train still races through the plains at midday, where no track was
