            The koala is a mammal and is part of a special group called marsupials. Marsupials breathe with lungs, are warm blooded and have live babies. They also have fur or hair somewhere on their bodies.
          Koalas are small, furry, tree dwelling animals. A koala may look like a bear but it’s not one. It is similar to a possum; however it has a shorter tail and sharp claws which are used for climbing trees. Koala feet are small compared to kangaroo’s feet which are big. Koalas are herbivore which means they eat plants. They suck the moisture from the leaves of eucalyptus trees. Koala eats mainly at night because then there is more moisture in the leaves than in daytime.
          Koala lives in bush land areas of eastern Australia. They can live in hot, warm or cold places. Koala lives in high branches of eucalyptus trees because there are more leaves there.

The Power of Music in Our life

          Do you agree that music is important in our life? Yes I do, music has certain role completing our day to day activities. Here are some reasons why music is heard everywhere and anywhere. Music is a way to express feelings. When we fall in love, the kind of music we’d listen to would be all about love. When we’re sad, we would go for music that is melancholic in nature and immerse ourselves in the sadness. When we’re happy, we’d choose songs with happy tunes too.

          Song can help to memorize the last experiences. A favorite song is a powerful documentary. People with Alzheimer which are impaired the brain would remember details about songs they were familiar with. For example, an elderly woman who couldn’t even remember her husband’s name would remember the details of her favorite song; when it was played, how it made her feel and things about the song that made it especially memorable for her.

          Further, music can unite people for a cause and changes the world. A song with good lyric and striking deep chord can stimulate the universal feeling of all people. We can see it in the case of the famous and legendary Michael Jackson’s Heal the world. It can arouse humanism of a lot people in this world. So what would the world be like without music? It would be lonely.

Never Try Smoking!
          A lot of people, especially teenagers, who don’t smoke, always want to try smoking. They know it is bad for them and all, but it’s just something they want to try. So they ask one of their smoker friends for a cigarette. Admittedly, they firstly can’t light it on their own so they ask his friend to do it. Then they inhale that cigarette and smoke occasionally.

          Apparently that makes them the born smokers. Now they do smoke fairly regularly. They can’t avoid smoking and they enjoy too. They have smoker friends. Everyday they bring a pack in their pocket. For them, a pack of cigarette is as important as a wallet for their money.
          Suddenly, for certain reason, they realize the fact that tobacco is the cause of a long list of nasty diseases. It isn’t only heart disease, stroke, and chronic lung disease but also bladder, lung, and pancreatic cancer. Even it was reported that around 400000 Americans died each year. It was one every 80 seconds from tobacco-related illnesses.

          Then they decide it is stupid to harm selves. They want to quit smoking. Unfortunately, they find that quitting smoking is so difficult. “Why can’t I stop smoking? I really want to stop it”. It is hard to quit because nicotine is powerfully addictive. Cigarette is one of the most efficient drug-delivery devices ever devised. As result, when people try to quit smoking, they often experience classic nicotine withdrawal symptoms such as anxiety, irritability, headache, depression, and restlessness.

          Well, still want to try smoke? Think the facts before trying! If you aren’t smoker, you should never and never try to smoke.
