There is hardly a person in the world who has never heard the name of the outstanding Italian artist, Michelangelo Buonarroti. This name is most often associated with the masterpieces of Renaissance sculpture, especially the sculpture called David. Michelangelo belongs to the group of the three giants of the Florentine High Renaissance. He stands in the one row with such personalities as Leonardo da Vinci and Raphael. They worked during the same epoch and treated one another as rivals. It is possible to say that this unspoken competition helped these artists reveal their entire potential. We know Michelangelo as the greatest sculptor. However, this personality was a remarkable painter, architect, engineer and poet. He is the creator of the greatest sculptures and buildings of all time; therefore, this artist is worth your attention.

What is morality? Can one learn how to be moral? Can the strictest laws enforce morality? These questions are quite disputable and controversial whereas they touch upon the most complicated philosophical categories. As you know, morality is characterized with the proper or standard behavior, actions and values. When we say about morality, we mean that someone strives to be positive and fair. What is more, this person respects the surrounding people, their views and interests.
This person does not violate law and avoids causing harm to anybody. Total respect towards the life and wellbeing of an innocent person is the priority of a moral person. Morality is an abstract category that can hardly be taught. The majority of people try to live according to the norms of morality. They do not kill, steal or cheat. They try to fulfil their duties and build their life fairly. Needless to say but there are people who decide to solve their problems in ‘easier’ ways. Unfortunately, these solutions are most often illegal and cause harm to the people around. Such unfair people should be taught how to behave properly. The government is one of the official bodies that possess enough tools to enforce morality on the society. However, there is a rhetoric question. Can morality be enforced by stringent laws?

What do you know about globalization? What is its impact on the society and natural environment?
In brief, world studies is an interdisciplinary science that refers to the analysis of the cause and effect of globalization and its influence on Earth. I dare say that world studies is very important for the understanding and improvement of our life. Why should we know about global studies? The answer is very simple. Our world does not have any borders. For that reason, people live in multicultural communities studying, working and entertaining together. This science refers to political studies, philosophy, economics, sociology, healthcare, ecology, etc. I want to inform you about the nature of world studies and the core elements of this science.

The Syrian Civil War has become the most disturbing problem recently. Every day we hear numerous news reports about the military conflict in this country. We read about its victims, refugees and severe bombing. On the other hand, very few Americans understand the reason of this conflict.
Furthermore, many people will hardly show the location of Syria on the map. What caused the Syrian Civil War? What are its consequences? Is it possible to stop the conflict and settle down the whole situation? These questions are extremely pertinent and weighty. I will try to observe at least several reasons that could have caused the total conflict in Syria.
Foremost, the conflict could have begun because of political repressions. Without question, the political system of Syria resembles monarchy. The family of the current Syrian president Bashar al-Assad has been ruling the country for 45 years. His father became president in 1970. Since that time, the country has not seen any political reforms and changes. The current president came to power in 2000. Doubtless, al-Assad has not done anything for the development of a democratic state.

Have you ever watched a child beauty pageant? Did you participate in this event? What is your attitude towards this competition? Child beauty pageants are quite popular nowadays. Thousands of young girls take part in these contests in different corners of the world every year. They struggle for the right to be called the most beautiful one. Doubtless, a child beauty pageant is a controversial topic, because it has a great number of pluses and minuses. I would like to observe this topic in brief in order to understand whether we should ban child beauty pageants or not.
It does not worth mentioning that child beauty pageants were organized for entertainment. Years ago, people did not have computers, smartphones and TV-sets. They could not go to the cinema or theatre every day. They required additional ways of entertainment in order to amuse themselves and cope with stress. Children did not have enough entertainment too. They went to school and played at home. It was interesting to them to take part in a contest of this kind. On the other hand, these beauty pageants were different. They did not attract enormous audience, money and advertising. Every contest was for fun and amusement. Children could enjoy these contests and treated them like a simple game.
