How is cotton produced?

Cotton is from a cotton plant. It is grown in huge fields and the plants get fairly large. About this time of year the grower sprays the plant with salt or sometimes a defoliation chemical ( it stinks) and the plant dies. When this happens the cotton bolls open and a machine called a cotton picker can go through the field. If it rains in this time the cotton will turn from white to yellow which will lower the price of the cotton. Once the picker has gone through it will keep going through the filed until it can get no more cotton. The raw cotton is taken to a cotton gin in a big open wagon and processed into cotton bales. The bales are huge and each bale is wrapped in burlap and numbered. The cotton bales are sold at a auction to be made into fabric and other things.

Who is the world's greatest soccer team?

The world's best soccer team is BARCELONA, they have skills, they have talent, and they have amazing teamwork. Also I hear their skills are improving and they are winning a lot more. LEEDS UNITED are the world's greatest. Here are 5 reasons in no particular order of importance: 1. They managed to sell out away allocations in every league they've been in- even every game in the lowest (League one or the old third division). This may not show team quality, but it shows passionate fans. 2. Thehonours. . The inter-cities fairs cup (now the Europa League)- winners 1968 and 1971, runners-up 1967 . FA Youth Cup- winners 1993 and 1997 . FA Cup- winners 1972, runners up 1960,1965, and 1973 . FA Charity Shield (now the community shield)- winners 1969 and 1992, runners-up 1974 . Football League Cup (now the Carling Cup)- winners 1968, runners-up 1973 . Third Division (now League One)- Automatically promoted in 2nd place 2010 . Second Division (now the Championship)- Automatically promoted in 2nd place 1928,1932, and 1956. Winners 1924, 1964, and 1990. . First Division (now the Premiership or Premier League)- runners-up 1965,1966,1970,1971,1972, winners 1969, 1974, 1992 3. The manager. The manager himself was a Leeds fan and is now devoted to making sure his fellow fans are happy by brining the team together to win games. 4. The belief. There was once a time when Leeds were trailing 3-0 against Southampton with 15 minutes to go. The fans' constant singing for 75 minutes had paid its dividends and 15 minutes later, the referee brought the match to a close with the score on the big screens at either end reading "Saints [nickname for Southampton] 3-4 Leeds United. Furthermore at Old Trafford January 2010, 9,000 Leeds fans turned up completely overselling the allocation despite being written off as under dogs full stop. The belief was there and from 19 minutes onwards, the scoreboard read "MANCHESTER UTD 0-1 LEEDS UTD". 5. The past players. People who made the hall of fame such as Billy Bremner, Jack Charlton, Don Revie. And those who didn't could find their induction day is around the corner. John Charles, Vinnie Jones, Gordon Strachan, and most recently Jermaine Beckford, who in 2009, became the country's leading goalscorer and the first Leeds player to reach the 30-goal mark since John Charles in the 1960s. -----

Who is the world's greatest classical composer?

Having heard William Camilleri's music on his website. I decided to write to him and ask to meet this composer. It was more than I could have ever imagined! Not only did I find out that William is completely self taught and never studied a note of music but also discovered he was an incredible pianist too who composes all his music without any changes and dishes out masterpiece after masterpiece. But I must say that what struck me most was that William has actually managed to change the course of music as we know it, companies are continually selling music by Bach, Mozart and the composers of past but are ignoring this new type of Classical music which is the most beautiful, moving, melodic music I have ever heard. Camilleri composes and orchestrates music with ease, this is something I have never seen or heard of in my entire life as a Professor of music that has travelled the globe. Wake up record companies! lets fill the concert halls around the world with this miraculous music. Prof, Mark Stien PhD University of Buffalo New York, USA. .

What is the world's greatest problem in future?

The Worlds' greatest issue, currently, is Global Warming. Global Warming - the direct result of carbon emissions going into the ozone layer and deteriorating it, thereby letting in more of the Sun's harmful rays - is heating up the Earth, rapidly, and melting the polar ice caps, causing the rising sea levels, and more flooding occurring globally. Al Gore says in his film "The Inconvenient Truth," while showing us a map of the world now, and a map of the world in the future when nothing is to be done, that soon, islands are going to flood, then states, and then entire countries. He shows us a future map, with major countries reduced to half their land-mass. The biggest problem in Global Warming, is those who choose not to believe it, or else do not blame it on us, but on Mother Nature. True, nature has accounted for a good deal of Global Warming, but some scientists are exaggerating their point to breaking point, and making graphs showing us 99% water vapour, which causes it, and 1% "alternative gases", which are the fossil fuels on Earth. These graphs have some truth in them, but the figures are not correct, fossil fuels, despite the despute from some scientists, do indeed claim more responsibility than water vapour, which condenses, and falls back to Earth before it can do any major harm to the ozone layer. Nature, as alot of people would say, did give Global Warming a helping hand, and, some would even say Nature started it, it might have, it might not, but, the effect of carbon emissions destroying the atmosphere was discovered in the 19th century, so man is indeed responsible for not making an attempt to stop it before it arrived.
