Coral bleaching has become an urgent topic among the experts who are involved in the analysis of various environmental issues. Many people do not understand the problem of coral bleaching. Corals are individual organisms that live according to their style. Some corals are colorful. Others are white. Why do people care about the color of corals? The answer is easy. When corals become pale, they are luckier to die. Consequently, we lose vast areas of coral reefs that make our planet beautiful. What is more, corals are the parts of large ecosystems. Millions of microorganisms, plants, and fish live among corals. These reefs are the home to such organisms. When corals die, millions of water bodies disappear too. Thus, the problem of coral bleaching is very considerable. Its effects are harmful to biological diversity and global economy. The best solution is to stop coral bleaching defeating the cause of this process. Continue reading
It is tough to explain the exact meaning of the term ‘science.’ One can imagine complicated explanations that will not cover the entire time. I suppose I can describe science with the one word – knowledge. Centuries ago, people did not know about many everyday things. They did not understand the cause of various natural phenomena and physical processes. They were afraid of fire, lightning, thunderstorm, etc. Everything that was not understandable to them was related to religion or magic. No wonder, many pagan gods possessed their qualities and fulfilled their roles in the world. For example, there was a god of fire, water, earth or air. Some gods were favorable. Others embodied negative phenomena that feared people. With the run of time, people learned about many secrets of nature and physical environment became not so frightening to them. This enlightenment occurred due to the scientific discoveries in the fields of medicine, physics, chemistry or biology. Science is a blessing. I will try to focus on the positive aspects of science, due to which our life on Earth has become easier. Continue reading

Constitution is the most important document that determines the principles of life in a country.
Constitution is weightier than laws and various acts. Nearly every country has its own written constitution that defines the norms of social and political life in the transparent way. It demonstrates the norms of the relations between an individual and the state. Some constitutions are logical and fair.
Others cannot boast of such features. Nevertheless, nearly every state has this document in the written form. The United Kingdom is the exception. This powerful and influential country has never had its own written constitution that would exist in the single volume. The UK applies its authentic approach towards its political activity. The entire political life of the country is regulated by the set of laws, documents, statutes and treaties that touch upon every field of human life. One can say that the constitution of the UK is a chaotic and illogical complex of random documents. No wonder, it has always attracted attention of the researchers in the field of political studies.

Life cannot exist without reproduction. This biological process is the fundamental one because every organism exists due to it. Every plant, bacteria, insect, animal and human being is the result of reproduction. Without this process, our planet would be empty. It would contain minerals, rocks and atmosphere but it would not differ from any other lifeless planet. Earth is unique and engrossing whereas it contains life. Why is the issue on reproduction so weighty for biologists? Actually, it is impossible to understand the evolution of this process. How did organisms ‘learn’ to reproduce? Why do some organisms reproduce faster and others slower? What is the primary role of reproduction for human beings? The problem of reproduction is very deep and enlightening inasmuch as there are many kinds of reproduction. Different organisms reproduce in the different way. Thus, this subject is still absorbing and thought provoking for every scientist. They conduct numerous experiments to understand this fundamental feature of the living organisms. Continue reading
