Computer programming is the way humans give computers instructions. As computers cannot think creatively or ‘fill in the blanks’, they follow any given instructions exactly. This means that one tiny oversight in the given instructions can cause a program to not run correctly, or at all.https://poly.google.com/view/454K-bPkcDK

EnglandOn his deathbed in 1066, the childless English king, Edward the Confessor, nominated as his successor Harold Godwinson, the leader of England’s leading noble family. However, it seems that earlier in his reign Edward had also promised the throne to his cousin, William, who ruled the Duchy of Normandy across the English Channel. When Edward died and Harold assumed the role of king, William chose to fight for the crown. At the Battle of Hastings, which took place in October 1066, Harold was defeated. William was crowned two months later, on Christmas Day, in Westminster Abbey. Later, as an act of penance for the bloodshed caused by his conquest of England, William built Battle Abbey on the site of the Battle of Hastings in East Sussex. In this Expedition, we’ll explore both the battlefield and what remains of the abbey.

As many as 4,000 archaeological sites are still under the domination of the Islamic State group and around 100 sites have been destroyed, according to Iraqi Culture Minister Firyad Rwandzi. The sites in their grip show the multiple civilizations that rose and fell during Iraq's long history, ranging from mosques, churches and small shrines to large sites of old cities. Fortunately, some of the artifacts from the sites in northern Iraq had been moved long ago to the National Museum.

Bacteria can only been seen through a microscope and come in a number of different shapes. Although they were first discovered in the 17th century it wasn’t until the 1870s that scientists began to realize that bacteria may cause disease.https://poly.google.com/view/dREUCVsfPsq

New York, New YorkMajor League Baseball teams play throughout most of the calendar year, and Jamal Collier’s job is to follow them from start to finish and keep his readers in the know. He is a baseball beat reporter, assigned to cover the Washington Nationals for MLB.com and Nationals.com. That means he covers baseball games from the start of Spring Training in March through the 162-game regular season schedule and then possibly a postseason that could go to November. And in the offseason, it means writing about player trades and free agent signings and more. It is a busy job with a lot of deadlines, but it also has its perks: You watch a ton of baseball, you get to share what you know with many others as a journalist, and you get to see the world. Thanks to Jamal for letting us follow him around on the beat so we can show you the life of a baseball beat reporter in case you are interested in a career like that. Let’s take a closer look!
