    Have you been making New Year _31_ at the beginning of every new year? If you do, here are some good tips for you to reconsider about making them. _32_ some studies, the best month to try to change anything in the year to come is August, when students are going back to school and many people are settling into new routes of their life. However, many scientists and psychologists seem to _33_ as there is not clinical research on the ideal time of the year to make improvements.
    However, scientists did offer some feasible _34_ for January’s high failure rate, one of which is the lack of preparation for change. John Norcross, a psychologist at the University of Scranton said that “people rushing in are likely to fail.” A sudden change can make _35_ harder to modify their habits later. “They should be changing when they’re prepared,” added Norcross.

    To design a coin, you must first know what traditionally makes up a coin. Typically, a coin is a round piece of _36_ that has designs and writing on each face. One face is called the obverse, or heads, _37_ the other is the reverse, or tails. It is the obverse side that typically bears a large and _38_ picture. American coins will normally show the head of a president on the obverse. British coins, for example, will show a bust of the monarch on the obverse. You will need to select an appropriate picture for the obverse of your own coin. Maybe it will be yourself, if you are heading your own empire. Maybe it will be someone you admire--a celebrity or historical figure. Perhaps you will choose a picture that honors a loved one.
    To finish your coin's obverse, you will also need to pick out some more design features. In most countries, the date the coin was minted, or made, usually appears just below the main picture. So you can put the date in this spot. The area itself is called the exergue. You do not have to put a date here. _39_ , you can leave it blank. But, it is a good idea to put something in the exergue. You can put your own special mark, _40_ the symbol of your country or the mark for your own private mint. This can be anything you like. Add a description to your image. You will want to put it along the outer edge of the circle that forms the obverse.

    The changing habitats of the penguins may give us a small window into the future of our own habitats. As the globe warms, animals like penguins, which spend a lot of time on ice, may be the first to notice.
    Among the flightless birds of the Southern Hemisphere, penguins are well suited to life in the icy southern seas. They are masterful swimmers, spending as much as 75% of their lives in the water. Of the 18 different penguin species, seven live around Antarctica. Antarctica has 90 percent of the world’s ice. The Antarctic Peninsula, like the rest of Earth, is warming, but at an even faster pace. Researchers warn that the face of Antarctica will change in the next 100 years as ice melts and glaciers retreat.
    The changing global environment will change the penguins’ lives. According to Dr. Andrew Clarke of the British Antarctic Survey, “Many Antarctic organisms are susceptible to very small changes in temperature.” Dr. Clarke predicts that if extreme temperature change continues, it will lead to dramatic changes, including some extinctions. Already, some penguin habitats may be shifting to the south. The pattern of snowfall is important to a penguin’s breeding. Ice patterns are also important, because the birds have to travel to the edge of the ice shelf in order to feed.
    It’s too early to estimate the exact impact of global warming on penguin habitats. Scientists will continue to watch the progress and survival of penguins as they try to adapt to their changing world.
