Climbing is the activity of using one's hands and feet (or indeed any other part of the body) to ascend a steep object. It is done both for recreation (to reach an inaccessible place, or for its own enjoyment) and professionally, as part of activities such as maintenance of a structure, or military operations.Are you thinking of taking up climbing as a sport? It can be an exhilarating and rewarding sport. Like most, you probably think that falling is the biggest danger especially if you’ve never climbed before. With all of the modern climbing equipment, falling is actually one of the least likely accidents. Falling is a risk but there are many other injuries that are more common. You should be aware of these risks and how to prevent them before you get involved in mountain or rock climbing.
Gravity is something that our bodies are used to in normal day-to-day living but when you climb you’re fighting gravity even harder. You use your fingers, hands, feet and limbs to fight the forces of gravity. To add to this, you are usually climbing in extreme temperatures and in jagged terrain.

The human species' use of technology began with the conversion of natural resources into simple tools. The prehistorical discovery of the ability to control fire increased the available sources of food and the invention of the wheel helped humans in travelling in and controlling their environment. Recent technological developments, including the printing press, the telephone, and the Internet, have lessened physical barriers to communication and allowed humans to interact freely on a global scale. However, not all technology has been used for peaceful purposes; the development of weapons of ever-increasing destructive power has progressed throughout history, from clubs to nuclear weapons.
Technology has affected society and its surroundings in a number of ways. In many societies, technology has helped develop more advanced economies (including today's global economy) and has allowed the rise of a leisure class. Many technological processes produce unwanted by-products, known as pollution, and deplete natural resources, to the detriment of the Earth and its environment. Various implementations of technology influence the values of a society and new technology often raises new ethical questions. Examples include the rise of the notion of efficiency in terms of human productivity, a term originally applied only to machines, and the challenge of traditional norms.

Teenagers. The young people between the ages 13 and 20. Every teenager has problems. There is no doubt about it. As their parents say: " Problems plays an important part in a teenager's life, as they see if you can handle it well."What happens if they can't defeat their problem? What happens if the problem is about drugs? Or maybe they're really depressed. I mean, lots of teenagers smoke and drink. They're all problems that parents don't want to hear about at all. Who would want to? Let's see . . . some problems are: * Drugs * Alchol * Depression * Shoplifting * Abuse * Peer Preasure * Smoking * Puberty
And these are just the most common ones! Problems might not be noticed until the last minute, and by then, it is usually too late to solve it.
How does the problems effect teenagers more than other people? Teenagers are more emotional than their elders and younger ones. Life is that way. Everywhere, teenagers are in floods from being dumped, having nervous breakdowns from stressing for exams, being ignored by getting bullied, being sent hate mails, falling in love. . . . . . the list can go on forever and still not cover every problem.

Politics is a process by which groups of people make decisions. The term is generally applied to behavior within civil governments, but politics has been observed in all human group interactions, including corporate, academic and religious institutions. It consists of "social relations involving authority or power and refers to the regulation of a political unit,and to the methods and tactics used to formulate and apply policy.
Strike action, often simply called a strike, is a work stoppage caused by the mass refusal of employees to perform work. A strike usually takes place in response to employee grievances. Strikes became important during the industrial revolution, when mass labour became important in factories and mines. In most countries, they were quickly made illegal, as factory owners had far more political power than workers. Most western countries partially legalized striking in the late 19th or early 20th centuries.
Strikes are sometimes used to put pressure on governments to change policies. Occasionally, strikes destabilise the rule of a particular political party. A notable example is the Gdańsk Shipyard strike led by Lech Wałęsa. This strike was significant in the struggle for political change in Poland, and was an important mobilised effort that contributed to the fall of governments in Stalinist East Europe.
