Basketball is one of the most popular team sports. It is a great way to follow the famous proverb – “A sound mind in a sound body”. All you need to play it is a ball, hoop and good and comfortable basketball court.
Talking about this prominent kind of sport, it is important to make a small excursus to the history of basketball. Originally, this game was invented in Canada. The name of the inventor is James Naismith, who was a professor at the Springfield University. The first most significant game took place in New York. It happened in 1934 and more than 15 000 fans witnessed the New York – Notre Dame Game, which ended with the score 25:18. In 1950’s this kind of sport became one of the most admired indoor games.
The term ‘fiscal federalism’ is one of the rather wide-spread concepts of the modern society. Fiscal federalism is an essential subfield of the public economics. To provide the most clear definition for this term, it will be right to say that fiscal federalism concerns the question of which tasks and instruments are centralized in the best way and which functions are positioned in the best way in the area of decentralized government levels.
Both in the developed countries and in the countries of the Third World, nations are directing their forces to the further improvement of the public sectors’ performance. To talk about the leader of the world economics, the United States of America, they have taken much effort to work out a wide variety of various social programs, such as: Medicaid, housing, welfare etc. The point is that government will become closer to the people and will heed the voice of the people concerning the improvement of these services rendering.
Who is mother in your opinion? Many people when they are asked this question give quite different answers just as when they are asked about Bible. So I wonder if she is the one who brings us into this world. Is mother the one who cares about us, feeds us, looks after us and loves us like no other?
Many people would get baffled at the perplexity and the apparent simplicity of this question. A mother is not just a woman who brings us into this world. But if a mother gives birth to a child and then leaves it on the road to die, you cannot call her a mother. In contrast, a woman, who has not given birth to that child (on the road) but takes it home and treats this child as if he or she were her own, is a good mother. In fact, the latter would be a better mother than the one who originally gave birth to that child.
It is really interesting when one tries to talk about oneself. This is due to the fact that every person has a tale to tell. Mine is rather one of those stories that are very intriguing.
I first came to realize that I had the potential to be a prolific writer when I was in high school. My English teacher had a problem with his grammar and sometimes I had to correct his mistakes since I had as impeccable English.
It was not long before I decided to write my first fictional novel titled ‘The mayor’s daughter” which incidentally I happened to sell to my fellow students. I sold hundreds of copies and thus I got managed to pay for my school fees.
Progress of technology and STR (scientific and technological revolution) have been described by mankind all through the ages, in particular their positive and negative effects on our society.
The definition of technology implies usage of material objects, methods and systems of organization and techniques. In other words, technology is the coherence of science and engineering. People had been using technology from the moment when they first chipped stone blades. And from that time and heretofore we have been looking for better goods and services.
There is an idea in the scientific society, a kind of hypothesis, that technology pushes the society ahead. But more reliable is the concept of mutual influence between society and technology, the idea of their interaction.
