Every generation brings something new to the sum of knowledge humanity possesses, and the majority of people consider it to be alright; yet in every generation there is a considerable percentage of people who would rather not change or create anything and would be even more happy if they could prohibit others to do so as well. In some ages they are more numerous and influential, in others – less. Our own time, considered as the time of progress and bringing down the barriers, is characterized by especially large number of them.
It is true to say that cheating on one’s spouse exists as long as there is marriage; and of course every generation is completely and utterly sure that the age it lives in is the worst in what concerns morals, human relationships and social life in general. Strangely enough, but people seem to like complaining about such things.
It is hard to say whether cheating nowadays is more wide-spread than before, for there hardly can be any reliable information on this matter either from modern times or from the ages past, as cheating isn’t generally the thing that one strives to make public. Some people do everything to persuade us that it was better “then”; some people do everything to persuade us that “then” was just the same as “now”.
From my point of view, the Twelfth Night is a very fascinating and charming play, as well as its main character Viola. When reading the comedy, I admired this lady and the way she acted in the situations she had to face. Viola, to my mind, is a collective character of a Renaissance person. She is active, brave, and generous. In addition, she is well-educated and very beautiful. She is the queen of her life, and even when she finds herself in quite a strange situation and in unfamiliar environment, she is smart enough to choose the best strategy quickly, meanwhile, charming all the people around her.
Folk tales and legends have always been an inexhaustible source of inspiration for many authors, creating their masterpieces in various times. William Shakespeare was not an exception. In a lot of his works a careful reader will notice references to folk legends. And his tragedy named Cymbeline is one of them. The play is not very familiar to a modern reader, but it doesn’t make it less valuable from the literary point of view or less interesting in terms of the intrigue.
In 2009 it became well-known that such significant areas like rates of infant morality, stability of country’s economic, women’ opportunities and levels of education will be improved greatly if there will be such factor like government birth control low-cost options. The majority of people are looking for government’s help to curb the growth of population. But the governments keep on trying to find out what kind of role they need to place in the family planning helping.
The situation concerning the retirement age is very different in different parts of the world. Some people at the age of 70 or 80 are still in working process, they are taking care of their families, countries and business companies. The situation with the other people is different. They are fit and have good health but, in accordance with the national law regulations they have to retire much earlier. Below I’d like to discuss the dilemma concerning whether people have to have the right to work as many years as they want OR they should be retired at the fixed age.
We must admit that every little boy dreams to become an adult ASAP so as to be a true man. Time flies by and this guy is far not a teenager any more, but has he reached his original goal?
Male and female roles are changing dramatically in the modern society and that’s the fact. Women are extending their influence in all the spheres of life. They are active and influential politicians, successful businesswomen, brave astronauts and wise doctors.

As any other foreign culture, the American one differs from the environment I am used to at home. First of all, I’d like to mention I’d never shared my space before, even though I understand it is my personal problem. At the dormitory we live in, this problem is easily solved by giving students a choice whether to rent single or double room. Of course, the price for a single room is higher, but in this question your comfort is at stake.
My answer is definitely positive. The main question here is whether the benefits we obtain overweight the damage and risks we have to undergo.
