- Magic Realism - 1,411 words
Magic Realism Magic Realism appeared as a critical term for the arts and it later extended to literature. The term was first used by the German critic Franz Roh in 1925 to characterize a group of Post-Expressionist painters.

- Plants In Extreme Conditions - 1,027 words
... lf prevents the surface of the leaves from drying out and the stumpy branches which are coated in a fine white powder, reflects the suns rays. The trunk and branches of the tree are filled with a soft fibre, which can hold a large mass of water but in the most severe drought the quiver tree takes a more excessive step. The leaves must have pores for gaseous exchange, which is vital to their manufacture of food, but these pores risk moisture being evaporated, so in extreme situations, the tree amputates itself. At a point just beneath the leaves, a branch will narrow so it can no longer hold the leaves; these then will fall off. The stump then seals itself and protects the water within it ...

- The Japanamerican Trade War - 1,164 words
The Japan-American Trade War For years after the end of the second world war, the Japanese suffered from an inferiority complex. This was the result of the American aid to Japan which helped to rebuild their country. Soon the Japanese started producing goods, small stuff at first, like junky toys in the earlier years - but then came better items, much better items. Now it is the Americans that suffer from the inferiority complex, not familiar with being economically vulnerable and not entirely in control of their destinies. Who to blame - the Japanese of course. If Americans can not learn to compete with the Japanese, then there is going to be some serious trouble because the economic proble ...
