      Have you ever wondered how people get chocolate from? In this Article we'll enter the amazing world of chocolate so you can understand exactly what you're eating.
         Chocolate starts with a tree called the cacao tree. This tree grows in equatorial regions, especially in places such as South America, Africa, and Indonesia. The cacao tree produces a fruit about the size of a small pine apple. Inside the fruit are the tree's seeds, also known as cocoa beans.
         The beans are fermented for about a week, dried in the sun and then shipped to the chocolate maker. The chocolate maker starts by roasting the beans to bring out the flavor. Different beans from different places have different qualities and flavor, so they are often sorted and blended to produce a distinctive mix. Next, the roasted beans are winnowed. Winnowing removes the meat nib of the cacao bean from its shell. Then, the nibs are blended. The blended nibs are ground to make it a liquid. The liquid is called chocolate liquor. It tastes bitter. All seeds contain some amount of fat, and cacao beans are not different. However, cacao beans are half fat, which is why the ground nibs form liquid. It's pure bitter Chocolate.

Bisons have not always lived in North America; they are relative newcomers. They belong to the Bovidae family, like domestic cattle and the wild buffalo of Africa and Asia. The oldest known bison fossils have been found in China and the Himalaya foothills, where an animal with all essential features of the genus lived a million years ago. They evolved rapidly and spread over most of the northern hemi­sphere in Europe and Siberia. During one of the Ice Ages, the sea level dropped, exposing a land bridge across the Bering Strait, allowing the faunas of Asia and North America to intermingle. Very early, the steppe bison moved eastward to the North American continent.

A black hole is a region of space created by the total gravitational collapse of matter. It is so intense that nothing, not even light or radiation, can escape. In other words, it is a one-way surface through which matter can fall inward but cannot emerge.
Some astronomers believe that a black hole may be formed when a large star collapses inward from its own weight. So long as they are emitting heat and light into space, stars support themselves against their own gravitational pull with the outward thermal Pressure generated by heat from nuclear reactions deep in their interiors If a star eventually exhausts its nuclear fuel, its unbalanced gravitational attraction could cause it to contract and collapse. Furthermore, it could begin to pull in surrounding matter, including nearby comets and planets, creating a black hole.

If students are to succeed in the future, their education must encourage them to have the desire to keep learning throughout their lives. For at least a decade now, experts have been telling us that to prosper in the future, countries need to make a much better use of their human resources. This means that people are not allowed to stop their learning at the age of 10 or 30, pushing skill-growth rates up rather than allowing children and adults lose interest in learn­ing. Although this is not easy, we should realize that vast numbers of people in the world may live poorly in globalization era, while only few people live excep­tionally well. As a result, the gap between the rich and the poor will grow and grow until social chaos explodes.

Human beings, convinced of their superiority over the animal kingdom, are seldom disturbed about the pain and death they bring to other species. For ex­ample, South American birds, desired by zoos, pet shops, and private collections, are frequently packed into small boxes and are flown to foreign countries. Many of the birds, however, do not survive the trip but instead die of suffocation. Birds are not the only victims. Hunters in search of baby orangutans shoot the mothers who are hiding in treetops and wait for the babies to fall on the ground. Many of the babies cannot be caught and fall to their death. Seals, prized for their skins to make lovely winter coats, are bru­tally slaughtered by hunters who club and skin them almost immediately. Sometimes, the seals are skinned alive because a hunter was not skillful with his club.

Scientists and doctors say that about 34 million Americans are too fat. Why is this? One reason is the kind of food Americans eat. Many Americans like 'fast food'. These foods (such as hamburgers and ice cream) often have fattening things in them. Another reason is the way Americans eat- They often eat little snacks between regular meals. These extra foods add extra fat on the body. The third reason is not enough exercise. Americans like driving everywhere, instead of walking. They often have machines to do a lot of work. Some Americans are also too heavy because of health problems. However, for most of 34 million Americans, the problem is the American lifestyle.

Alternative energy sources become increasingly attractive as the energy crisis becomes more severe. Solar heating systems, which use the sun's radiation as a source of energy, are promising alternative en­ergy sources. Nuclear power plants are already in operation in several parts of the country. Govern­ment and private industry even investigate the possi­bility of capturing the power of ocean waves and tides for conversion into usable energy. Coal once again becomes an acceptable fuel as the nation searches for solutions to the energy shortage. Even garbage is seen as a potential source of energy. In some communities, garbage is burned to heat build­ings and light city streets.
