Wind energy
    Wind power is one of the energy sources that have been in use for a very long time. It was used in powering sailing ships, which made it possible for explorers to sail around their trade routes in distant lands. A single windmill can power crop irrigation, and cover family energy needs such as water pumping and electric lights. However, in the present time there are several windmills that are used to generate required energy mostly for industrial uses. Many of the wind turbines can capture much power all at once before feeding it to the power grid. This is commonly known as wind farms and has been in use for many years all around the world. It is only the United States that is going slow in terms of accepting this alternative energy source.
    Wind power is renewable, and it does not cause any air pollution. Advancement in technologies has brought down the cost of setting up wind power plants. However, wind energy can only be used in areas with high winds, which means that it cannot be used as a source to extract energy anywhere on Earth. Wind turbines sometimes create noise disturbance and cannot be used near residential areas. These disadvantages have made the use of wind energy limited to particular regions only.
    1.    How was wind energy used in the past?
    2.    How can wind energy be used in agriculture?

Halloween Candy
    Halloween is a holiday celebrated in much of western world. Dressing in costumes and going door to door to ask for candy is a special event for many children. Stores’ marketing of candy has helped shape what Halloween is today, and surely children are happy to receive the candy. Some children like to choose a neighbourhood where they do not need to walk very far between houses. Parents need to check all the candy thoroughly to make sure that it is safe; some might even end up taking a piece of their favourite candy, as it is very tempting! Some parents encourage their children to eat the candy as quickly as possible so that their teeth will not decay from being in contact with sugar for a long period of time. However, brushing teeth immediately after eating candy is probably better for children’s dental health than eating it all at once.

Micro Apartments
    The problem with living in a crowded city like New York is that apartments are hard to find and very expensive. That’s why so many young city-dwellers these days are making themselves at home in tiny micro apartments. Some are only 100 square meters in size! They are often beautifully designed, with space-saving ideas like making the stairs into a set of drawers! Even so, new tenants soon run out of space for their belongings, and have to get rid of all the extra clothes and stuff they don’t need when they move in. They have to be very tidy because they simply can’t move when there are clothes and bags and things all over the place. However, although it won’t suit a couple thinking of settling down, it will suit busy young professionals who work hard, go out a lot and feel at home right in the heart of New York.
