ELECTIONS IN THE USA


There are two major parties in the USA Republican and Democrat. There are also smallest parties, but down through the
years the President has always represented one or the other of the two major parties.
Every four year there is a national election for President. First the person has to become the candidate of his own party. Then
each major party hods a convention to choose its candidate. It is a large and noisy party televised to all the country.
Everybody can hear the speeches and share the excitement. Delegates to the conventions are chosen in a variety of ways by
the state committes or primary elections. They are usually people with some political experience. The delegates vote for their districts
and states. After a number of rounds of voting, a candidate is nominated.
After the nomination comes the campaign itself. By this time there are committes working in support of the candidates who
have been nominated.
There are people who contribute to the cost of the campaign. And there are volunteers working in small districts, in counties,
cities, and states. Before a national election is concluded, thousands upon thousands of Americans have been working to persuade
people to vote for a particular candidate.
Opinion polls keep constant track of how the voters feel. Many thousands of voters feel intimately concerned and involved.
Actually, voters do not vote directly for President. They vote for electors who, in turn, will vote for President. The number of electors
from each state is based on its population. Thus a candidate receives votes of the Electoral College and the popular vote.
It may be confusing, but in any case it is all competitive. Everyone runs against someone. And it is part of the pattern that
keeps Americans involved in their government.

Moon Craters
The moon has attracted mans attention since the beginning of civilization. Ancient Greeks discovered the influence of the
moon upon the tides. Poets have looked at the moon with romantic eyes. Space scientists have not only studied it with their
telescopes, but have also sent astronauts there. Nobody however, has found out all the answers to the mysteries of the moon. The
origin of moon craters, for example, is still obscure.
According to one theory, thousands of meteors have crashed against the surface of the moon. The impact of these crashes has
formed the craters. They are pits and depressions on the lunar Editora Exato 26 surface. They have many sizes and forms. Some
scientists have tried to prove this theory with plaster. They have drooped objects into wet plaster, trying to reproduce the formation of
craters. Unfortunately, they have not been successful.
According to other theories, the craters have appeared because of eruptions either of gas or lava.
English physicist Robert Hook said, The craters are the solidified residues of enormous bubbles.
This dispute has not ended yet. It has been very difficult to prove these theories. Scientists have already progressed a lot, but
poets can be glad the moon is still a romantic mystery to man.
