.... the higher latitudes turn toward the northeast. In the Southern Hemisphere the usual path of a hurricane is first to the southwest and then turning toward the southeast.
are characterized by strong winds and pouring rain. Thunderstorms and waterspouts appear in the storm's cloud system. All contain an eye. The eye of a hurricane is a low pressure, calm area in the middle of the storm. The air in the eye is sinking and this causes there to be no rain in this area and little wind. This gives the impression that the storm has passed through. It is not safe .....

.... heat and light very well. Aluminum is fond in many Rocks
and minerals on the earth's crust. Because aluminum is not very strong and
is highly reactivate with Oxygen, water, acids, and bases it is compounded
with other metals and elements to from alloys for common uses. In Society
Aluminum Alloys are used in many ways because of it's light weight and
versatility. As more and more ways are discovered to strengthened Aluminum
with other elements more uses have also been discovered Aluminum is used in
aircrafts, Electrical Engineering, Windows, doors, buildings, .....

.... Steady State model says that the universe does not evolve or change in time. There was no beginning in the past, nor will there be change in the future. This model assumes the perfect cosmological principle. This principle says that the universe is the same everywhere on the large scale, at all times.2 It maintains the same average density of matter forever. There are observational evidences found that can prove the model is more reasonable than the Steady State model. First, the redshifts of distant galaxies. Redshift is a Doppler effect which states that if a .....

Also it would be a very useful tool for historians as people such as Hitler would be able to be recreated and studied to find out what their motivations were.
Besides from all these good points cloning also has bad points. The biggest problem with cloning on a large scale is the lack of genetic diversity. If everyone has the same genetic material, what happens if we lose the ability to clone? We would have to .....

responsible for that which he creates.
