Wuthering Heights Throughout the novel Wuthering Heights, Emily BrontŽ effectively utilizes weather and setting as methods of conveying insight to the reader of the personal feeling of the characters.

Fire Ants
Fire Ants
Fire Ants Fire ants have been in the United States for over sixty years, and almost every American that lives in or frequently visits the quarantined states which they inhabit has had an unpleasant run in with these troublesome critters. Inhabitants of the Southeast who have ever stood unwittingly atop a fire ant mound know that the insects are aptly named.

In contrast to these striking achievements of mankind is the Durham Road Landfill outside San Francisco, which occupies over seventy million cubic feet.

The Stonehenge The Stonehenge has been one big mystery to the world. No one knows how it got there, who built it, or why it was built. All we can do is wonder. The Stonehenge was built and reconstructed many times starting in about 3200 BC to about 1650 BC. The stones that were used to construct the monument weighed anywhere from 25 to 50 tons apiece, in some cases the stones had to be dragged to the plain from up to 20 miles away. It went through three major phases, the first of which was when
