Mount Kilimanjaro, located in Tanzania about 220 miles south of the equator in a very hot
region, is the tallest mountain in all of Africa. 34 its location, there are many glaciers and
ice fields high up on the mountain. The ice cap was important to the surrounding area and it’s
also a source of water for the river Nile. Many villages in the Mount Kilimanjaro region 3511
the snow and ice melt water.
The appearance of Mount Kilimanjaro is changing. Scientists say that more than 80
percent of its glaciers 36 since 1912. As a result, animals on the plains surrounding the
mountain are now dying and many plant species are also in danger. People are beginning to

Say “evolution” and some folks think of dusty archaeologists examining bone fragments.
But, while evidence of previous life forms does play a central part in our understanding of
evolution, it is not necessary to go on a dig to see it in action—you might just look inside your
We all learn that human beings have thirty-two teeth. They are not all the same, though;
the pointy incisors in the front are easily distinguished from the flatter, double-edged bicuspids
that run along the side. Our teeth serve different functions: those incisors are great for biting
and holding on, while the bicuspids do more of a saw-motion for chewing.
Now here is something you may not know: strictly speaking, it is not true that everyone
has thirty-two teeth. Even excluding people with dental problems, some folks have only thirty,
or even twenty-eight. The ones that are missing are often the farthest back in the mouth. Where
did they go?
One likely answer is found in evolution. A long time ago—say ten thousand years—human
beings ate much more raw meat. With a rough diet, you need lots of grinding teeth to help
prepare your food for digestion. Later, with the gradual advent of cooked foods, not all those
teeth are needed anymore. If someone is born without them, he or she does not suffer any ill
consequence; a scientist would say there is no evolutionary pressure to keep those teeth.

46. We are always trying to understand ourselves by asking “Why did I do that?” Certainly it
is true that each human being faces the question of understanding himself, even though he may
not put this question in so many words. Part of the answer to “Why did I do that?” is found in
the way the individual looks upon himself, or the way he sees himself. This is referred to as the
It is obvious that we will tend to act with more self-control, and be happier, if we can
gradually gain a better understanding of how we ourselves think and act, and what kind of
individuals we really are. For example, a young woman may “see herself ” as a poor
conversationalist and a kind of “wet blanket” when she goes out with her friends. Actually, she
is warm and friendly and well liked by all who know her. Here is a case where an individual has
formed a “self-concept” which is definitely not in line with the facts. If she could come to
realize the true situation, it would in all probability help her overcome this fear of meeting or
being with other people. The importance of an individual’s “self-concept” in influencing his
behavior is plainly evident.
