WE sailed from Peru, where we had continued by the space of one whole year, for China and Japan, by the South Sea, taking with us victuals for twelve months;
and had good winds from the east, though soft and weak, for five months' space and more. But then the wind came about, and settled in the west for many days, so as we could make little or no way, and were sometimes in purpose to turn back.
But then again there arose strong and great winds from the south, with a point east; which carried us up, for all that we could do, toward the north: by which time our victuals failed us, though we had made good spare of them. So that finding ourselves, in the midst of the greatest wilderness of waters in the world,... View More »

" This scroll was signed with a stamp of cherubim's wings, not spread, but hanging down ward; and by them a cross.
This being delivered, the officer returned, and left only a servant with us to receive our answer. Consulting hereupon among ourselves, we were much perplexed. The denial of landing, and hasty warning us away, troubled us much: on the other side, to find that the people had languages, and were so full of humanity, did comfort us not a little. And above all, the sign of the cross to that instrument was to us a great rejoicing, and as it were a certain presage of good. Our answer was in the Spanish tongue, "That for our ship, it was well; for we had rather met with calms and contrary winds, than any tempests. For our sick, they were many, and in very ill case; so that if they were not permitted to land, they ran in danger of their lives." Our other wants we set down in particular, adding, "That we had some little store of merchandise,
which if it pleased them to deal for, it might supply our wants, without being chargeable unto them." We offered some reward in pistolets unto the servant, and a piece of crimson velvet to be presented to the officer; but the servant took them not,
nor would scarce look upon them; and so left us, and went back in another little boat which was sent for him.
About three hours after we had despatched our answer, there came toward us a person (as it seemed) of a place. He had on him a gown with wide sleeves, of a kind of water chamolet, of an excellent azure color, far more glossy than ours; his
under-apparel was ...

    In our modern age, biotechnology is advancing at such an accelerated pace that it raises more questions than we have answers. One is the question of whether a human embryo, is simply group of cells or a person, which deserves the same moral rights as you or I, including the right to live. If it is a person, do we ascribe these rights at conception? Or does one achieve personhood in later development, and if so, at what stage? Questions such as these are the center of the embryonic stem cell controversy and have not been answered; yet there are many different points of view regarding the subjec

The reason is that our leaders dreamt and made the effort to make their dream come true. In 1965, when Singapore separated from Malaysia, there hope of prosperity was bleak.
