The Pearl Harbor

The Pearl Harbor air raid in 1941 is certainly the most well known attack on American holdings during World War II. The other attacks made on American soil by the Axis powers have often been overlooked, in large part to their utter lack of effectiveness. However, these attacks can tell us a lot about the fear that pervaded American society during World War II


A rose is a perennial flowering shrub or vine of the genus Rosa, within the family Rosaceae, that contains over 100 species. The species form a group of erect shrubs, and climbing or trailing plants, with stems that are often armed with sharp thorns. Most are native to Asia, with smaller numbers of species native to Europe, North America, and northwest Africa. Natives, cultivars and hybrids are all widely grown for their beauty and fragrance.

Elvis Presley

The "King of Rock 'n' Roll" made his first professional performance on this weekend in 1954. Elvis was the opening act for Slim Whitman and Billy Walker at the Overton Park Shell Concert. He sang That's Alright Mama and Blue Moon of Kentucky. The young musician was practically a 'nobody' at the time, with ads for the event even misspelling his name as Ellis Presley.

History of hurricane

A hurricane is the name for a tropical storm that forms in the Atlantic Ocean, the Northeast Pacific Ocean east of the international dateline, or the South Pacific Ocean east of 160 degrees longitude. Depending on the conditions in the areas affected by the storm, hurricanes can produce violent winds, large tidal waves, torrential rains, flooding and mudslides


A cigarette is a product consumed through smoking and manufactured out of cured and finely cut tobacco leaves and reconstituted tobacco, often combined with other additives, then rolled or stuffed into a paper-wrapped cylinder (generally less than 120 mm in length and 10 mm in diameter). The cigarette is ignited at one end and allowed to smoulder for the purpose of inhalation of its smoke from the other (usually filtered) end, which is inserted in the mouth. They are sometimes smoked with a cigarette holder. The term cigarette, as commonly used, refers to a tobacco cigarette but can apply to similar devices containing other herbs, such as cannabis.

The Discovery of Global Warming

The Earth's climate is constantly changing. Many climatologists believe that the temperature of the Earth slowly fluctuates over time. In fact, several scientists estimate that between 15,000 and 30,000 years ago the Earth was covered by large sheets of ice. This period of time was known as the Ice Age. As the temperature of the Earth began to rise 7,000 years ago, the Ice Age came to an end.
