Chronology of spreading 

The history of tea is long and complex, spreading across multiple cultures over the span of thousands of years. Tea likely originated in the Yunnan region during the Shang dynasty as a medicinal drink. An early credible record of tea drinking dates to the 3rd century AD, in a medical text written by Hua Tuo. Tea was first introduced to Portuguese priests and merchants in Lebanon during the 16th century. Drinking tea became popular in Britain during the 17th century. The British introduced tea production, as well as tea consumption, to India, in order to compete with the Chinese monopoly on tea.

Legends

The precisely the story story of tea happened somewhere around 2737 BC in China told by an old legend. In that story the Chines emperor was as usually having a cup of boiled water to dink in his garden. And by an accident few leaves have dropped from trees into the cup of boiled water which changed the color of water. Interested in this change of color emperor took a sip and he liked it. Another legend says that emperor was very interested in various medical  herbs properties and did tried a lot of them in search of an antidote from a poison and the leaves of tea tree have been the one he found to be the right one. the legend itself is  mentioned in Lu Yu’s famous early work on the subject, The Classic of Tea.

High school comedy show

There are many genres that could be implemented into school setting to create an interesting show about students of an high school. However the ideal premise by my opinion is the comedy/slice of life garners that mixed with school environment could make up an interesting show.

The main point for this being of course that comedy mix with various the perspectives off student life in high school is making good jokes and surreal setting. And the thing is that setting this type of mix means that creators of the show may express the shows main narrative through the lens of various students perspectives or mind  sets. Which in term mean that they writers could simply got to any sort of lengths and mad or even crazy representation of a simple life of students task like passing exam into for example into fight of galactic battle or into ‘James Bond’ like highest or into a prison break film. And through out this exaggerated  a lot of comedy capped be simply propelled. Not to mention the shows in such setting could get very creative in its look, set ups, jokes and  overall character development. And even the plot could be so simply like high schoolers rebellion against the school or the school hierarchy  could be transformed into something very interesting to watch.After all the show like “Assassination classroom”, “Kill la Kill”, “Gridman” and many other shows have such a premise and exile high with it.

In conclusion this may be the best choice for setting up an interesting show for people to watch and enjoy.In the end this  new genre of show is still in its highest point.

Are parents great teachers

Every person have heard this phrase in any given form “the parents are great teachers”. And as a dilemma this sentence has been talked about very much from different perspectives. I actually partly disagree with this one. so to explain my viewpoint some solid arguments shall be brought to serve as foundation for it.

 First and foremost as much as parents are the ones that gave their children life sometimes they also think that their children are owing them for that. And because of that most of the parents choose to think that their children should follow every advice they give and should do as they say even if they are wrong. Because of this way of thinking a lot of children would be mostly become what their parents want to be and would eventually be like their parents. Also in such cases parents are also not very supportive to their children’s dreams and try to bring them down by thinking that they can’t catch stars from sky. None the less this sort of parenting may bring to their children becoming depressed and bulled constantly. Which obviously means that parents don’t care or don’t understand their child right because of which they only make chid’s life worse.Overall that all culminates in very blank person with meaningless life and with no ambitions of their own.

On the other hand not all parents are like that and the right parent would of course be more supportive and helpful to anything.  A real parent would instead try to understand what the matter, not find fast solutions to problems like social anxiety, depression and to being bulled. In those cases good parent would try to brighten their child’s mood and generally give them their attention to bring them to happy mood.And in that case the child raised by parents that actually teach their children to chase their dream and be confident make their child life better. Also they would help them understand such life problems as refusal, hating, lose and others. After all  a parent becomes great teacher when they want their child to really succeed and follow their dream no matter the cost they would be near him always

In conclusion as much as there are bad parents that are bad teachers it’s not a thing that every parent is. Overall there are a lot of parents that really want to teach their children  the right thongs and prepare them for  life.

What type of roommate I would like to be with me

In everyones life there is time when they live their parents home for  one or another reason. And in most of the cases when people do that they end up renting a flat with another person. So if there was a choice of a roommate what type of person would anyone choose. In my case I’d choose a roommate that is a very friendly one. And to explain my reasoning here are some arguments why would I choose that type of person.

First and foremost people that are genuinely friendly are easy to befriend and to live with. In this case the roommate would be a great company to you and would be genuinely caring person, who would help you in any case. Also by being such person you could help in any case and situation, because  of that you would create a strong friendship that would always lighten the mood in your flat in any given situation.

Another common reason is that by being friendly with  each other the conflicts in the apartment or dorm room would be much less. And that is scientifically stated fact that in all of the cases when people rent house the best atmosphere and quality of living is in the one where the roommates are friends with each other. Also by being friendly roommates they would often listen to each other and would understand each other better. In this case the amount of fights between them also  drops because of their general understanding of each other.

In conclusion I’d say that for me that type is the best and even if that isn’t what others choose it is my choice with which I am fond of. Overall I’d say it would be nice to have a roommate that cares about you as much as you of them.
