Basic Facts About Polar Bears

Polar bears are the largest land carnivores in the world, rivaled only by the Kodiak brown bears of southwestern Alaska. Polar bears sit at the top of the food chain in the biologically rich Arctic. The most carnivorous of the bear species, polar bears feed primarily on the fat of ice-dependent seals. The remains of these seals provide food for many other Arctic wildlife species, giving polar bears a vital role in their ecosystem.
Polar bears are marine mammals, and spend much of their time on Arctic sea ice. Many adaptations make polar bears uniquely suited to life in icy habitats. Their fur is thicker than any other bears’ and covers even their feet for warmth and traction on ice. A thick layer of blubber beneath their fur provides buoyancy and insulation. The long neck and narrow skull of the polar bear probably aid in streamlining the animal in the water while warming the air that they breathe, and their front feet are large, flat and oar-like, making them excellent swimmers.

St Valentine through the eyes of a student

My first attempt to talk to you
Never did I dream that text
Would be that great a breakthrough

Since that fortunate day
We have been continuously texting
And soon this new person in me
A new me you have involuntarily
Over time been creating
Began to show itself in a manner
That took over
My previous personality

18750 text messages
Have been sent over the last 5 months
The number constantly rising
And almost daily am I told
That I have changed quite a lot

Now the thought of reverting
To my previous self
Scares me to death

When I look into your eyes
I see the ocean after a storm
And please believe me this time
You’re the most beautiful creature
My eyes have ever looked upon

In these last words
I have been trying to tell you how I feel
But sadly enough I do not master
The English language to the point
It would allow me to express it

Being a teenager...

Being a teenager means going through just another phase in your life. It certainly has its ups and downs and it feels like being in a roller coaster. It implies dressing in a different way, listening to certain types of music, falling in and out of love, fighting with your parents... and I could go on, but now it's your turn. How does it feel like to be a teenager?
