cinderella’s mother died while she was a very little child, leaving her to the care of her father and her step-sisters, who were very much older than herself; for cinderella’s father had been twice married, and her mother was his second wife. now, cinderella’s sisters did not love her, and were very unkind to her. as she grew older they made her work as a servant, and even sift the cinders; on which account they used to call her in mockery “cinderella.” it was not her real name, but she became afterwards so well known by it that her proper one has been forgotten. she was a very sweet-tempered, good girl, however, and everybody (except her cruel sisters) loved her. it happened, when cinderella was about seventeen years old, that the king of that country gave a ball, to which all ladies of the land, and among the rest the young girl’s sisters, were invited. and they made her dress them for the ball, but never thought of allowing her to go there. “i wish you would take me to the ball with you,” said cinderella, meekly. “take you, indeed!” answered the elder sister, with a sneer; “it is no place for a cinder-sifter: stay at home and do your work.” when they were gone, cinderella, whose heart was very sad, sat down and cried bitterly; but as she sat sorrowful, thinking of the unkindness of her sisters, a voice called to her from the garden, and she went out to see who was there. it was her godmother, a good old fairy. “do not cry, cinderella,” she said; “you also shall go to the ball, because you are a kind, good girl. bring me a large pumpkin.” cinderella obeyed, and the fairy, touching it with her wand, turned it into a grand coach. then she desired cinderella to go to the trap, and bring her a rat. the girl obeyed, and a touch of the fairy’s wand turned him into a very smart coachman. two mice were turned into footmen; four grasshoppers into white horses. next, the fairy touched cinderella’s rags, and they became rich satin robes, trimmed with point lace. diamonds shone in her hair and on her neck and arms, and her kind godmother thought she had seldom seen so lovely a girl. her old shoes became a charming pair of glass slippers, which shone like diamonds. “now go to the ball, my love,” she said, “and enjoy yourself. but remember, you must leave the room before the clock strikes eleven. if you do not your dress will return to its original rags. i approve of pleasure, but not of dissipation, and i expect that you will show your gratitude by obeying me.” cinderella kissed and thanked her godmother. then she stepped into her coach and drove off, with her footmen behind, in great style. the fairy, when she was gone, returned to fairyland. cinderella was received at the king’s palace with great respect. the lord chamberlain bowed low to her, thinking she must be a very great lady by her dress and carriage, and he showed her at once into the ball-room. she was so beautiful that everybody looked at her, and wondered who she was; and the prince asked her to dance with him, and afterwards would dance with no one else. but she made haste to leave a little before the hour fixed, and had time to undress before her sisters came home. they told her a beautiful princess had been at the ball, with whom the prince was delighted. they did not know it was cinderella herself, and she was amused to hear them admire her grace and beauty, and say that they were sure she was a royal lady. the prince was quite vexed when supper-time came, and he could not find his beautiful partner, and no one had seen her leave the room. but in hopes of beholding her again, he persuaded the king to give another grand ball. as soon as her sisters were gone to it, cinderella’s godmother arrived. “you were so good and obedient last time, that i shall let you go out again,” said she to the young girl. and once more the rat, mice, grasshoppers, and pumpkin (which had gone back to their original shapes after the first ball) were turned into the grand carriage and attendants, and cinderella, in rose-coloured satin and rubies, went to the royal ball. directly the prince saw her, he asked her to dance, and would have no other partner, and as he led her past her two unkind sisters, she saw them look at her dress with envious eyes, and knew that they wished they were as beautiful, and as well-dressed as she was. but in the midst of her enjoyment, cinderella remembered the fairy’s command, and at half-past ten glided out of the room, and drove home again. her sisters found her waiting to undress them in her usual rags, and kept her up to tell her how beautiful the unknown princess was, and how well she was dressed. again the prince was vexed at the sudden disappearance of the beautiful stranger, and once more he persuaded the king to give a grand state ball. “i wonder if princess beauty will be there!” said the sisters to cinderella. “we must have new dresses, for she is so splendid. she makes every one look shabby.” cinderella smiled as she helped them to dress. she was sure the fairy would let her go to the ball too. and she was right. her godmother, pleased with her obedience, came in good time, and cinderella, dressed in blue satin and pearls, went in the same style as before. the prince would scarcely let her out of his sight, and cinderella, who was getting a little spoiled by all the flattery she heard, began to think more of herself and less of the fairy; so the time stole on, till glancing up at the clock, she saw it wanted only five minutes to eleven. at once she darted out of the room, and ran through the palace as fast as she could go, but as she reached the hall, she lost one of her precious glass slippers! she did not stop to pick it up, but rushed to the door. alas! the clock had struck eleven. she found no coach, only a pumpkin, and the rat and mice ran quickly away when they saw her; while all her fine dress turned to rags, and she had to run home alone in the darkness of the night. the prince was very much surprised when he missed cinderella again, and leaving the ball, went in search of her. he asked all the attendants, but no one had seen her, and when enquiry was made of the porter, he said that no one had gone out of the palace except a poor ragged beggar-girl. however, the prince’s search was rewarded by his finding the glass slipper, which he well knew belonged to the unknown princess. he loved cinderella so much that he now resolved to marry her; and as he felt sure that no one else could wear such a tiny shoe as hers was, he sent out a herald to proclaim that whichever lady in his kingdom could put on this glass slipper should be his wife. all the great ladies who wished to be a princess tried to put it on, but in vain. cinderella’s sisters tried, but could not get it on, and then cinderella asked if she might try. they laughed at her; but the prince, hearing of her wish, sent for her. she went with her sisters in her poor dress, but very clean, and at once put on the slipper. then she drew the fellow of it from her pocket, and slipped it on her other foot. the prince, who had thought the moment he saw her that the poor girl was very much like the beautiful princess, was delighted. he insisted on cinderella telling him her story, which she did very modestly, and all listened with wonder. as her tale ended, the fairy godmother suddenly entered the room, and placing her godchild’s hand in the prince’s, said: “take this young girl for your wife, prince; she is good and patient, and as she has known how to submit to injustice meekly, she will know how to reign justly.” so cinderella was married to the prince in great state, and they lived together very happily. she forgave her sisters, and treated them always very kindly, and the prince had great cause to be glad that he had found the glass slipper.

"in nearly all cases, 90% of this water is returned to its source, where it can raise the water temperature in an area immediately surrounding the water discharge pipe. depending on water flow, the water temperature quickly returns to ambient temperatures that do not harm fish." donn dears, former president of tsaugust, a not for profit corporation organization focused on energy issues, told live science. nutrient pollution, also called eutrophication, is another type of water pollution. it is when nutrients, such as nitrogen, are added into bodies of water. the nutrient works like fertilizer and makes algae grow at excessive rates, according to noaa. the algae blocks light from other plants. the plants die and their decomposition leads to less oxygen in the water. less oxygen in the water kills aquatic animals. air pollution the air we breathe has a very exact chemical composition; 99% of it is made up of nitrogen, oxygen, water vapor and inert gases. air pollution occurs when things that aren't normally there are added to the air. a common type of air pollution happens when people release particles into the air from burning fuels. this pollution looks like soot, containing millions of tiny particles, floating in the air. another common type of air pollution is dangerous gases, such as sulfur dioxide, carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides and chemical vapors. these can take part in further chemical reactions once they are in the atmosphere, creating acid rain and smog. other sources of air pollution can come from within buildings, such as secondhand smoke. finally, air pollution can take the form of greenhouse gases, such as carbon dioxide or sulfur dioxide, which are warming the planet through the greenhouse effect. according to the epa, the greenhouse effect is when gases absorb the infrared radiation that is released from the earth, preventing the heat from escaping. this is a natural process that keeps our atmosphere warm. if too many gases are introduced into the atmosphere, though, more heat is trapped and this can make the planet artificially warm, according to columbia university. air pollution kills more than 2 million people each year, according to a study published in the journal of environmental research letters. the effects of air pollution on human health can vary widely depending on the pollutant, according to hugh sealy, professor and director of the environmental and occupational health track at the department of public health and preventive medicine, st. george's university, st. george's, grenada. if the pollutant is highly toxic, the effects on health can be widespread and severe. for example, the release of methyl isocyanate gas at union carbide plant in bhopal in 1984 killed over 2,000 people, and over 200,000 suffered respiratory problems. an irritant (e.g. particulates less than 10 micrometers) may cause respiratory illnesses, cardiovascular disease and increases in asthma. "the very young, the old and those with vulnerable immune systems are most at risk from air pollution. the air pollutant may be carcinogenic (e.g. some volatile organic compounds) or biologically active (e.g. some viruses) or radioactive (e.g. radon). other air pollutants like carbon dioxide have an indirect impact on human health through climate change," sealy told live science. noise pollution even though humans can't see or smell noise pollution, it still affects the environment. noise pollution happens when the sound coming from planes, industry or other sources reaches harmful levels. research has shown that there are direct links between noise and health, including stress-related illnesses, high blood pressure, speech interference, hearing loss. for example, a study bythe who noise environmental burden on disease working group found that noise pollution may contribute to hundreds of thousands of deaths per year by increasing the rates of coronary heart disease. under the clean air act, the epa can regulate machine and plane noise. underwater noise pollution coming from ships has been shown to upset whales' navigation systems and kill other species that depend on the natural underwater world. noise also makes wild species communicate louder, which can shorten their lifespan. light pollution most people can't imagine living without the modern convenience of electric lights. for the natural world, though, lights have changed the way that days and nights work. some consequences of light pollution are: some birds sing at unnatural hours in the presence of artificial light. scientists have determined that long artificial days can affect migration schedules, as they allow for longer feeding times. streetlights can confuse newly hatched sea turtles that rely on starlight reflecting off the waves to guide them from the beach to the ocean. they often head in the wrong direction. light pollution, called sky glow, also makes it difficult for astronomers, both professional and amateur, to properly see the stars. plant's flowering and developmental patterns can be entirely disrupted by artificial light. according to a study by the american geophysical union, light pollution could also be making smog worse by destroying nitrate radicals that helps the dispersion of smog. turning on so many lights may not be necessary. research published by international journal of science and research estimates that over-illumination wastes about 2 million barrels of oil per day and lighting is responsible for one-fourth of all energy consumption worldwide. other pollution facts: americans generate 30 billion foam cups, 220 million tires, and 1.8 billion disposable diapers every year, according to the green schools alliance. according to the who, ambient air pollution contributes to 6.7% of all deaths worldwide. the mississippi river drains the lands of nearly 40% of the continental united sates. it also carries an estimated 1.5 million metric tons of nitrogen pollution into the gulf of mexico each year, resulting in a dead zone each summer about the size of new jersey. pollution in china can change weather patterns in the united states. it takes just five days for the jet stream to carry heavy air pollution from china to the united states, where it stops clouds from producing rain and snow. about 7 million premature deaths annually linked to air pollution, according to who. that is one in eight deaths worldwide. additional resources who: world water day report epa: water quality facts columbia university: the greenhouse effect and global warming u.s. national library of medicine: noise pollution green school alliance: pollution facts recent news live science is part of future us inc, an international media group and leading digital publisher. visit our corporate site. about us terms and conditions privacy policy cookies policy accessibility statement topics advertise with us web notifications update consent © future us, inc. 11 west 42nd street, 15th floor, new york, ny 10036.

bullying is a big problem for children and young people that go through it. it knocks their self-esteem and makes them lose their confidence, and can make them dread going to school each day. in extreme cases, young people can become suicidal as a result of bullying, while in other very serious cases, it can get out of hand and lead to the bully murdering their victim. it’s also a huge problem for parents and teachers, because stopping bullying is a hard task and they often don’t know the best ways to go about it. there are three key elements to stopping bullying: educating the bullies, imposing greater sanctions for the bullies, and protecting the victim. the reason that bullies must be educated is that many of them are not aware of exactly how much they are hurting their victim. in serious cases, it is probably wholly deliberate, but even then, most bullies wouldn’t want their victim to become as suicidal as they have made them. bullying can come in all sorts of forms and one that affects girls in particular is a group of so-called friends excluding them from everything. in cases like these, if the bullies understood that they had become bullies picking on a victim, they may think twice. the second way to deal with the bullies is to punish them. this could be the only thing that works for incredibly nasty people, because they will only care when it begins to affect them. bullying often isn’t taken seriously enough; for example, if you punched a person in the middle of the street you would probably be arrested, but if it happens in a case of bullying, the perpetrator might get a detention. it is important not to allow things to happen in school that they would never get away with out in the real world and children and young people who don’t have boundaries and sanctions imposed as they grow up may not obey the law as adults. the final main way to deal with bullying involves working with the victim. victims of bullying need to know their self-worth so that they don’t just accept what’s happening to them, and need to be taught to be assertive without just being aggressive. they should also be taught that self-defense is

finally! the day has arrived for our family’s day at the beach. my parents have been planning our family excursion to the beach ever since the summer holidays had started. of course, i’ve been very elated when my parents had made the announcement that we were going to the beach this sunday coming. so last friday evening, my dad took some time off early from work so that he, mom and i can go to the grocery store and purchase everything that we are going to need on our trip to the beach on sunday. there were so many things that we had bought for our family day at the beach, like snacks and refreshments and meats and rice and so the list goes on. now that the day had finally arrived, i was ready to spend a wonderful time with my parents at the beach. on sunday morning, my mom and dad had been busy cooking the food in the kitchen while i helped packed the refreshments in a large cooler box with ice. by the time my parents had finished preparing the food, they had packed it into a large box with plates and spoons and forks. then we had started packing everything into our family caravan. soon, in the next hour, we were driving through the main road, and we were on our way to the beach, which is actually my favorite place in the world so far. the sea water was blue and beautiful as it sparkles in the warm sun. there were a few people here and there on the beach. some were busy playing cricket, while a few kids were building sand castles just for fun. there were at least three or six people for the most, already bathing in the clear, blue sea water. by the time, we had gotten out from the caravan, i was already excited to go into the water and enjoy a fine sea bath. my mom had seemed to have read my mind so she told me that’s it lunch first, and then we all can go into the water. the food was incredibly delicious. baked chicken, lasagna, egg salad and shepherd pie, it was truly an amazing meal that i’ve ever eaten so far. then i drank some iced cold lemon lime juice to wash it down. well, i have to say that i was already enjoying our family day at the beach so far. after that incredible lunch, my parents and i relaxed like for half an hour until it was officially time to have some real fun. we all ran into the sea water and dived in. the water was cool and wonderful that we stayed there until it was time for us to pack up and go home. it was five o’clock that evening when we all had packed up our belongings and put them back into our family caravan. as i sat in the back seat of the caravan, i looked out of the window to have a quick look at the clear blue sea water one more before we drove off. i can see that sun was already setting above the horizon of the ocean. but i know that some other again, we shall return to enjoy another family day at the beach.
