It's the first fatal bear mauling in the park since 1986. The bears involved in Wednesday's encounter have not been captured, and park officials said they did not immediately have enough information to determine what measures, if any, they might take in the aftermath of the attack. According to the AP, Yellowstone National Park is home to at least 600 grizzly bears, though some say the population is over 1,000. While the attack is the first fatal mauling in the park since 1986, it's the third in the region in little over a year. A National Park Service statement said the couple surprised the mother grizzly while with her cubs, and that the grizzly fatally mauled the man in "an attempt to defend a perceived threat to her cubs." 1.

The four brothers asked the Arab whether the camel had lost its tail and wanted to know if it was bearing a sack of grain on one side and a jar of honey on the other. To his surprise all the questions were true about his camel. And this made the Arab convinced that they were the thieves. So he brought them before a judge. But the explanation was simple.The first brother began, The camel had only gazed on the grass on one side of the path, so it must be blind in the other eye. One of its hoof prints was less marked than the others, and that means it must be lame in one foot. As for me, said the second brother, I noticed that all its dropping were in one heap, instead of being spread around as usually happen, so I thought that the camel must be missing its tail. On one side, explained the third brother, some wheat grains had fallen on the path and the ants were carrying them away. On the other side of the path, the flies were sucking at the drops of honey.

Well, the weather can get very very, very cold, and the temperature could go as minus 5 degrees Celsius, but it never snows. That was the reason why we liked going to Snow Mountains. Our first trip to Snow Mountains was very exciting. We went with a group of foreign students from different parts of the world. We went by bus to Canberra and then we went up to the mountain. And believe me, you need to be an expert driver because the road was rough and wet. We had to go very slowly and cautiously. Luckily, our driver was a real professional. He did a great job taking us to the mountains, but I saw many good cars sliding off the roads. The police were made busy by those accidents, but the police seemed to have anticipated the situations. They had all kinds of equipment to help the poor cars. When we reached the resort area, a nice warm meal was waiting in a nice and warm dining room. It was a relief. Then we had to hire the Snow-Mountain gear like caps, scarves, thick jackets, and snow boots. We simply had to do that or we would have been freezing to death. I felt really big and fat in that outfit and I had to do learn how to walk in snow. The most exciting part was the toboggan ride. Toboggan is basically a fiberglass board designed to slide down the snowy slopes. So I climbed up the hill and then I sat down on the toboggan. I held on to ropes to steer and slid down the hill. It turned out that my steering ropes weren't tied on correctly, so I could not control my toboggan property. I slid down really fast without being able to control where I was going. So I ended up plugging into a freezing cold creek! 1. Why was an expert driver needed to drive to Snow Mountain?

Their city was high up in the Andes Mountains. They were well known for their great wealth, especially gold. This great empire was unfortunately destroyed in an attack by the Spaniards who were searching for their famed gold. Although thus empire existed way back in 1493, it was not backward but complex and well-organized. The empire was ruled by the Sapa Inca, Lord of the World, Son of the Sun. He owned everything in the empire the land, soil, gold and even the people. The people, therefore, had no freedom. Boys and girls were to live a life of obedience and tradition. They began working in their ayllu or family groups. The rule was Ama sun, ama ilulla, ama shekilla, which means, Do not steal, do not lie, do not be lazy. Despite this difficult way of life, the Incas were skillful. They constructed drainage system and underground water reservoirs. Their buildings were made from huge stones. These were cut to fit perfectly together so that no mortar was needed. Their rope bridges were so strong that even a horse could gallop across them! The Incas had no written language. Information was recorded on knotted strings called quipus. These were also used as calculators. Strong and healthy young boys were chosen as chasquis or couriers to carry messages from one place to another. 8. The text mainly
