Cars Should be Banned from Cities

Cars should be banned from the city. As we all know, cars create pollution, and cause a lot of road deaths and other accidents.

Firstly, cars, as well as we know, contribute to most of the pollution in the world. Cars emit a deadly gas that causes illness such as bronchitis, lung cancers and “triggers” of asthma. Some of these illnesses are so bad that people can die from them.

Secondly, a city is very busy. Pedestrians wander everywhere and cars commonly hit pedestrians in a city, which causes them to die. Cars, today, are the biggest killers on roads.

In conclusion, cars should be banned from a city for the reasons listed above.

Why do the Sun and the Moon live in the sky?

 

(A Nigerian Folktale )

Here is the story. A long time ago, when the world was new, the Sun married the Moon and they lived as happily as can be. They lived in a little cottage near the Ocean.

You know what? One day, the Sun and the Moon invited the Ocean to their house for a visit. The Ocean liked it so much. He wanted to stay in a little cottage. The Sun and the Moon liked the Ocean and hoped the cottage would be big enough for all three of them.

So the Sun and the Moon invited the Ocean to stay with them. What happened then? Then came the Ocean with all his friends; the whales, the fish, the tortoises, the crabs and all the creatures that live in the sea.

Oh my….. The water rose higher and higher in the cottage. Soon, there was no more room for the Sun and the Moon. Oh, how poor they were. They rose up into the sky where they have lived ever since. Well, that’s the story.

Whales

Whales are sea-livings mammals. They therefore breathe air but cannot survive on land. Some species are very large indeed and the blue whale, which can exceed 30 meters in length, is the largest animal to have lived on earth. Superficially, the whale looks rather like a fish, but there are important differences in its external structure; its tail consists of a pair of broad, flat horizontal paddles (the tail of a fish is vertical) and it has a single nostril on top of its large, broad head. The skin is smooth and shiny and beneath it lies a layer of fat (blubber). This is can be up to 30 centimeters in thickness and serves heat and body fluids.
