Animal cruelty is a relevant and shameful problem. More and more people decide to pay attention to the human activity that causes harm to animals. People believe that they are the most important creatures on Earth. Animals, birds, fish and insects are not weighty to them. Such creatures exist just to serve people. This wrong belief of the human total dominance has made people cruel towards animals. They treat animals like unworthy organisms that exist for food or entertainment. No wonder, more and more wild animals become extinct whereas people do not let them live in their natural wild areas. Every animal is supposed to serve a human being in the particular way. Some of them are killed for food. Others are captured for entertainment. They have to live in zoos, cages or circuses in order to amuse people. There are different types of animal cruelty. One can mention neglect, farming, violence, cultural rituals, bullfighting, film making, circuses, unnecessary scientific experiments and abandonment, etc. Every type of animal cruelty is harmful to in physical or psychological way. I will try to attract your attention to this urgent problem.

Drug abuse is a relevant problem nowadays. Many people take different types of drugs to alter their mood and change their behavior.
Some people take drugs to reduce pain. Others just want to try something new. Drug abuse is crime. In the majority of countries drugs are illegal. One cannot go and purchase drugs in a store. Moreover, one cannot sell drugs openly whereas this product is banned. Drugs are prohibited because they influence our organism inadequately. Many people commit crimes under the influence of drugs.
Others just enjoy themselves but waste too much money on these harmful substances. Consequently, drugs influence our health and financial condition. Sad to say but many children become the victims of drug abuse at school. They want to seem cooler and mature when they smoke marijuana or use methamphetamine. Children are vulnerable to such things. It is easy to persuade a child to try drugs. If he enjoys them, he can become a returning customer. Therefore, dealers make money on students and cause harm to the younger generation. No wonder, there have been many attempts to stop the spread of drugs in schools. Students are tested on drugs from time to time to make sure the educational institution is healthy. On the other hand, many people think that drug testing in schools should be prohibited because this action violates children’s rights.

Eyewitness testimony is an account given by the witness of an event or crime. It is a legal term that is widely used at a trial. Eyewitness testimony is a controversial issue whereas many experts think that the quality of the account given by the witness depends on numerous psychological and external factors. However, there are cases when eyewitness testimony is the only clue for the police to find a guilty person or discover the actual situation. When it is impossible to trace forensic evidence, the only way out is to find a witness who has seen the entire event or crime with her own eyes. Although this method is unreliable, very often it helps to find the truth.
Eyewitness testimony is a valuable method in forensic science. Years ago, this method was the weightiest one. People did not try to look for any clues and evidence and the only reliable source of information about a crime was eyewitness testimony. When one said that he saw a criminal, he described that person and her actions. When the descriptions fitted the accused person, she was believed to be guilty. Therefore, forensic science of the past was based on eyewitness testimony.

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?
