War a fascinating topic for students

War is a terrible part of the human experience. During my lifetime there have been U.S. military operations in Honduras, Panama, Somalia, Liberia, Serbia, Bosnia and Libya.

Jimmy Kimmel hosted the 2012 Primetime Emmys on Sun., Sept. 23 live on ABC from the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles.  The late-night talk show host got some decent laughs in his opening monologue when he joked about and poked fun at Honey Boo Boo (as expected) and even talked politics.

According to e-importz.com, American coffee drinkers consume an average of 3.1 cups of java per day. No doubt that statistic holds true, as coffee shops continue to appear everywhere, catering to people's daily caffeine needs.
It's safe to say Starbucks has been a pinnacle player in fueling the coffee craze. Over 40 years ago, the company began their trek of coffee world domination when the first Starbucks opened in Seattle's historic Pike Place Market, according to the company's website.
