I read Bartleby the scrivener, this is a short story by the american writer herman melville? In this book melville describes a wall street lawyer hires a new clerk who after an initial bout of hard work, refuses to make copies or do any other tasks of him with the words I would prefer no to. The narrator makes several attempts to reason with Bartleby or to learn something about him, but never his any success. I have the feeling that this book is very strange for me, because the style, the writing is not usual.
I'm glad to hear your voice about literature. My favorite writer is Lu Xun(1881-1936), whom is often called "a great writer, thinker and revolutionary" in China. His most famous work is The True Story of Ah Q. I don't know whether you have heard of him or his works. But in China, it is almost impossible to find a student who doesn't know his name. Qu Yuan, a poet in ancient China two thousand years ago, is another writer that I love very much. You couldn't feel the beauty of his words unless you learn ancient Chinese language, so I think you may never heard of him. In terms of European and American works, I have read a few, most of which are from France, UK and Russia, such as Les Misérables by Hugo, David Copperfield by Dickens and War & Peace(Война и мир)by Tolstoy and so on. What about you? Welcome to post your ideas here.
Who do you think is the best president in your opinion? I think Abraham Lincoln, since he won a war, he stopped slavery and he wasn't racist. He was also very humble. And the worst president? I would say Trump.

|Hey! Here's some advice:
1. Make sure you are in a place with good lighting.
2. Learn how to get around (Like bye using bike, scooter, skateboard) to find great places to get the pictures.
3. To get a good shot, always be prepared to take a photo.
4. When taking a photo, try to have your hands not shake as much.
5. ALWAYS keep your lenses clean.

Je me posait deux questions en rapport avec les sciences et la question parle de la vitesse de la lumière (plus ou moins). Un jour, Einstein a prouvé qu'aucune chose ayant une masse pouvait dépasser la vitesse de la lumière. Et justement, dans la lumière, il y a des particules (je ne me souviens plus de leur nom) qui dépassent cette vitesse. Donc les questions sont: ces particules on forcément une masse donc ne serait-il pas possible de déplacer des masses plus importantes aussi rapidement que la lumière? Et si oui, serait-il possible que ça aille tellement vite qu'on puisse utiliser ça pour une sorte de téléportation?

| Bonjour Adrien,
en effet, l'année dernière, des chercheurs ont constaté que les neutrinos se déplaçaient + vite que la lumière. Mais cette déclaration a été démentie quelques jours + tard. Il faut dire que c'est un peu gênant ; cela signifierait que toutes nos formules sont fausses ! Je rappelle que les neutrinos proviennent des étoiles et tracent leur chemin "partout" en traversant tout...
Sinon, tu as aussi la physique quantique qui suggère que certaines particules dépassent (peut-être) la vitesse de la lumière : l'expérience des photons-jumeaux (loi de non-séparabilité). Là, on parle de communication instantanée ou de vitesse infinie. Je te laisse faire des recherches sur internet.
A propos de la masse de la lumière, on ne sait pas si elle est vraiment nulle. On ne fait que supposer. Tout ce qu'on peut dire à ce jour, c’est que la masse d’un photon est inférieure à 5 x 10 puissance -60 gramme. Et c'est le même problème : si un jour on arrive à prouver que la masse d'un photon n'est pas nulle, alors toutes nos formules s'écroulent.
Théoriquement, pour faire voyager une particule de matière (comme un simple proton ou un électron par exemple) à la vitesse de la lumière, il faut une énergie infinie. C'est pour cela que le fameux accélérateur de particules consomme une énergie phénoménale. IL faut dire que ce n'est pas rien : à cette vitesse, tu fais 10 fois le tour de la terre en 1 seconde !
j'ai un problème de surdité brusque. y a t il des gens ici qui en ont fait l'expérience et avec qui on peut en discuter? merci
| 18340 - Reply from Nicolas17 (France) - 2019-12-13 |
Est-ce qu'il s'agit d'une surdité définitive ou temporaire ?
si c'est définitif, alors je te conseille fortement d'apprendre à lire sur les lèvres, car sinon, tu ne pourras plus communiquer et tout le monde va te tourner le dos. En fait, tu n'as pas le choix, il faut le faire. Si tu n'y arrives pas, alors essaie la langue des signes.

| Hi Sofia,
I do believe that climate change does exist. I believe it is a natural process the world goes through every few thousand years, but mankind is making the process worse and quickening the effects of it. If you look at the climatic history of the world, you'll see periods of time where the temperature has dropped significantly (e.g Ice Ages) and periods of time where the temperature is very high this caused the global climate to change. With the emission of green house gasses, over population, habitat destruction, over fishing/ hunting, etc. this process has become a lot more severe in a much shorter time frame. Which in turn doesn't allow species to adapt to these changes. so climate change is a major issue and it does need to be addressed.

|Yes I'm very concerned about it, we can notice that it is really a fact in our daily life… I live in the campain, there are less insects, less birds, températures are heater than never… We had snow, and one Week later very hot températures… Yes of course it is real, and there are things we can do to help: buy less useless things, less plastic, less clothes, Don't throw what can be reused, do the #trashtag challenge, on he internet, you can find a lot of actions! But everybody has to do it, Don't let other people do it for you, Everybody shall ACT!|
If God does not exist why are you here? Why is Earth here? Do you really believe that everything happened by chance? It takes a lot more faith to believe in a world created by chance than created by an All-Powerful, loving g
God. Think about the complex way the human body works. Or the way the moon pulls the tide. I know bad things happen but everything works for good. God uses bad things for good.
I have waaaaayyyy more proof, just ask.
If you want to believe in Jesus I'll help you, just ask.

|Hate to break it to you, but God can't be proven by science or otherwise. It's scientifically impossible. God requires faith, and faith operates outside of science.
However, you can make the scientific case for Creation, which is belief in an intelligent creator, (I.e. God). In which case, you can debate someone.

But of course if they escape and then become a danger, human life is a priority.
What do ya'll think of gun/weapon control in the USA?
| 18471 - Reply from Nyx169 (USA) - 2020-10-30 |

So, last year, I really liked this boy, and his name is Mateo. He really liked me too. We loved chatting, and talking. I always laughed at everything he said. He is hillarious, popular, athletic, nice, cute, and his family is rich!!!!! My best friend Morgan kinda got involved, and then she bacame friends with him, but ALL they talked about was me and him. She only talked to him about me (She wanted us to get together) At the end of the school year, Morgan moved away to Tennessee. She still kept in contact with Mateo. I still kept in contact with him too. But, I got really depressed over the summer, I missed her so bad! So did he. So, when we returnde back to school, we were both different people. we acted different, and kinda drifted apart from eachother. I'm really sad, because, I liked him so badly! I was in love.
Let me clarify something: Morgan and Mateo did not like eachother!!!

|Religion is a choice, it depends if you want to believe in it or not. However, we should respect everyone, no matter if he's christian or not, and it is not something that we can qualify with "good or bad"
Personally, I consider religion as a source of power, it let people who believe in it follow it "instructions", it could be positive instructions for example to build beautiful religious monuments, to travel all the way to Jerusalem, to be kind to everyone, as it could be negative instructions like provocating wars and conflicts.
