The Treaty of Versailles is to be established as the event that ‘set off the dominos’, and underlying cause of the Second World War.

The first consequence of the treaty was the vindictive terms outraged Germans, whom referred to it as “diktat” (slave treaty). The war guilt clause also intensified the social discontent, as many Germans were left feeling humiliated and embarrassed.

Causes if Child Obesity
In today’s society, child obesity is very common and over looked. Obesity in children alone has increased dramatically over the last 20 years. Since the technology has improved, children have become lazier.

As a carefree person throughout my childhood I became truly distressed when I moved to Bahrain. The fact that I left my whole childhood behind in Pakistan made me miserable and to make it worse I joined a private school in Bahrain which was more of a prison than a place where youth were taught. I spent seven years in that school and by the time I graduated I would have been a nervous wreck if it wasn’t for my friend Abed.…

Skepticism Killed the Sapien (Rough Draft)
Everyone knows the saying: curiosity killed the cat. Since humans have a natural instinct

Computers give access to a place where the thoughts, opinions, and emotions of all people can be painted onto an openly accessible canvas. This allows people to connect…
