The living and nonliving things in any area form a community are called ecosystem. They act on one another in many ways. Two of the most important ways are through food chains and chemical cycles.

Life could not exist without energy from the sun. The sun's energy travels to earth as light. It affects plants and animals through chemical processes. All plants and animals are linked together in these processes. The sun's energy flows through all of them in a continuing path called a food chain.

Plants-eating animals, or herbivores, consume (eat) the plants. In their own bodies, these animals reorganize the chemical in the plants and use them as nourishment. The same thing happens when a planteating animal, such as rabbit, is eaten by a meat-eating animal, or carnivore, such as a fox. (animals that eat both plants and meat are called omnivore).

A certain process takes place when living things die. Bacteria" and fungi break the chemical compounds down into simple nutrients. This process is called decomposition. The nutrients from decaying animals enter the soil, where they are used again by plants.

Thousand of years ago, the human population was much smaller than it is today and people did not greatly affect the balance of nature. Several hundred people who lived as community of hunters did not kill enough animals to disturb the balance of their ecosystem. A few thousand people who lived by a river, and discarded waste did not pollute the water enough to change the ecosystem.

Today the human population is enormous; And people have created many ecological crises, especially in areas where the population has grown quickly. Their demand for space, their production of waste, and their need for quantities of food, water, and energy all have had an important effect on natural system.

A magazine is a periodical containing a variety of articles and general illustration of an entertaining or an instructive nature. Magazines are designed to be of interest either to the general public or groups of people with specialized subject matters. The essential difference between the magazine and the newspaper is a physical one: the magazine is smaller in size and often bound in pamphlet form.
Magazine production involves teamwork. This means that many people have to work together to produce the magazine you have in your hand. But one key person is the magazine editor. If some one has a manuscript he wants to publish, he will send or submit it to the editor of the magazine he likes. The magazine editor, usually the editor-in-chief, will read it and make recommendation so that the manuscript can be published.

Another task of a magazine editor is to consider whether the article will be part of series. Will it have photographs or illustration? will it be in full color, two or three colors, or black and white? Once the decision is made, the work of an illustrator or photographer begins. Preparing manuscripts for the magazine is hard work to do. After everything is all right, they are sent to the typesetters. When the galleys (or typeset text) come back, they must be carefully read. This is the job of a proofreader to find out whether or not there are mistakes in typesetting. Corrections are made if there are mistakes.

The sun pour plenty of energy down on the Earth, and many homes now use this energy to heat their water. It is difficult and expensive to trap solar energy on a large scale but in some sunny part of the world scientists use mirrors to reflect sunlight into a boiler on top of a tower.

This heats up water in the boiler into steam, which can then be used to turn electric generators.
Many countries now have nuclear power stations. These use a rare metal called uranium as a kind of fuel. Under certain conditions, the nucleus (center) of uranium atoms can be made of split. This is called fission. When this happen fantastic amount of energy is given out. The heat produced in a nuclear reactor is taken away by cooling liquid or gas. It goes to a boiler where it boils water to produce steam. The hot steam powers electric generators to make electricity.

One of the main drawbacks with a nuclear power station is that it produces dangerous waste. It is dangerous because it gives out radiation (rays) that can harm most living things. Nuclear engineers have to make very sure that none of the radiation escapes either from the reactor (where fission takes place) or from the waste.
