This is one of the most controversial questions when talking about this subject, mostly because the people are often confused and don't know anymore which is the right thing to be done. Having compelling arguments on both sides, it is often hard for them to decide what is better for their personal health or for the environment. To start with, what is a vegetarian? Vegetarians do not eat meat, fish, and poultry. Vegans are vegetarians who abstain from eating or using all animal products, including milk, cheese, other dairy items, eggs, wool, silk, and leather.

Morality and Immorality in The Picture of Dorian Gray

In my essay I will try to explain the direction that Oscar Wilde's novel takes. My support will be one of the aphorisms from the Preface of The Picture of Dorian Gray, "There is no such thing as a moral or an immoral book" and I will try to illustrate the morality/immorality by using a few episodes from the novel. Morality is understood as a system of principles followed by a particular group of people, and immorality as not following accepted standards of behaviour. These definitions are reflected in The Picture of Dorian Gray very well. Oscar Wilde opinion is that "there i... vezi detalii

Sibiu - The Cultural Capital of Romania

The city was founded in 1190 by German settlers, the so called Transylvanian Saxons(the term Saxons is in so far wrong as such colonists did not derive from the medieval region of Saxonia but from the area around the Moselle River). It was probably built near a Roman settlement, one that would have come to be known during early Middle Ages as Caedonia, which might have been deserted at the time of the Saxons' arrival. In the 14th century, it was already an important trade center. In 1376 the craftsmen were divided in 19 guilds. Sibiu became the most important ethnic German city among the s... vezi detalii

Among the most significant writers of the twentieth century, who have struggled with the complex dimensions of the problem of American cultural identity, as well as offered a tolerable solution, is Francis Scott Fitzgerald.
