Internet Catalogue If you think you are beaten, you are; if you think you dare not, you don't; if you like to win, but you think you can't it's almost certain you won't. Life's battles don't always go to the stronger or faster man, but sooner or later the man who wins is the one who thinks he can. "DON'T QUIT" Author Unknown When things go wrong, as they sometimes will. When the road you're trudging seems all up hill, When the funds are low, and the debts are high, And you want to smile, but you have to sigh, When care is pressing you down a bit, Rest if you must, but don't you quit. Life is queer with the twists and turns, As everyone of us sometimes learns, When he might have won had he stuck it out: Don't give up though the pace seems slow.

If atoms are mostly empty space, why do objects look and feel solid? Chemist John Dalton proposed the theory that all matter and objects are made up of particles called atoms, and this is still accepted by the scientific community, almost two centuries later. Each of these atoms is each made up of an incredibly small nucleus and even smaller electrons, which move around at quite a distance from the centre. If you imagine a table that is a billion times larger, its atoms would be the size of melons. But even so, the nucleus at the centre would still be far too small to see and so would the electrons as they dance around it.
