Most people that I’ve met in English-speaking countries tend to be slightly shy. By contrast, most individuals that I’ve met in Spain are very outgoing and gregarious – they are quite extroverted. During my trip to Spain, I’ve obviously improved my social skills a lot! The importance of having high-quality social conversations: In the past, whenever I was talking to someone that intimidated me, I would mentally scold myself, “Why did I sound so stupid? This high-profile individual will never want to speak to me again.” After spending some time in Spain, I have learned that my social awkwardness can be [...]

More about Liam, the Australian school boy: I mentioned that when my nephew and I went to Australia, he met a new friend Liam.

Populations are growing and cities are booming – but could we soon see skyscrapers turned into centers for crop production? From Chicago warehouses to the south pole growth chamber in Antarctica, the concept of growing food indoors is catching on. Plant scientist Dr Erik Murchie, from the University of Nottingham, reveals how agriculture could be turned on its head. What is vertical farming? It's vertical because you are trying to grow more crops on a smaller land area and this usually means going upwards into buildings. It normally means that, instead of having a single layer of crops over a large land [...]
Ocean currents move heat around the world and have a major effect on the world’s climate. Nowhere is this clearer than in the North Atlantic Ocean. The Gulf Stream and the Great Ocean Conveyor Belt move huge volumes of warm salty tropical water north to the Greenland coast. Heat from this water helps keep the countries of northwest Europe, which are at the same latitude as Labrador and Greenland, relatively warm. How the Great Ocean Conveyor Belt could cause an Ice Age: Many scientists, however, are warning that the North Atlantic might cool down, perhaps by the end of the century. [...]
My nephew and I visited Australia last year – we had a good time because my nephew met a new friend Liam in Australia & now, they are pen friends. Liam is a school boy who lives in Adelaide, South Australia. His grandparents are from Germany and they moved to Australia many decades ago. A brief summary of Australian history and economy: The British ships arrived in Australia in 1788 and this British colony was established. Initially, the Great Britain sent their convicts to Australia. However, convicts were not sent to South Australia. Liam is from Adelaide, the capital of South [...]
The Australian cities of Sydney, Hobart, Perth, and later Melbourne and Brisbane were all founded with the use of convicts, but Adelaide was different. South Australia has often been represented as completely different from the other colonies. It was established on rational economic principles, there were no transported convicts, it was more enlightened in its attitudes towards Aboriginal people, and more progressive in its social and political development. South Australians have taken great pride in their history, especially in the nineteenth century, but this article will explore how different South Australia and Adelaide really is from the rest of Australia. South [...]
According to M. H. Monroe, aboriginal people have lived in Australia for at least 60,000 years, arriving by boat from south Asia by about that time. Some researchers have suggested that aboriginals arrived around 116,000 years ago. These dates have been strongly disputed and re-dating suggests that 60,000 years is correct. Interestingly, most scientists agree that modern humans have only been in South East Asia since 20,000 years ago, which suggests that Australia was settled before South-East Asia. Europe, meanwhile was first settled by modern humans also around 60,000 years ago, which suggests that Europeans and Aboriginals arrived in their destinations [...]
