Humanities & Social Sciences Free Word Cloud Generator Word clouds can be extremely useful for gaining insights into virtually any large body of text. They can be used to study such things as corporate reports, political speeches, historical documents, news reports, public opinions, tweets, and so forth. This particular word cloud generator is designed to be not only flexible and easy-to-use, but also to produce high-quality, visually appealing word cloud images. In the images created by this word cloud generator you will find that the most frequently occurring words within your text appear toward the center of the cloud, while less frequent words appear at the periphery. You will also notice that the size of each word varies in direct proportion to the frequency with which it appears in your text.

Mammalia Di­ver­sity The Class Mam­malia in­cludes about 5000 species placed in 26 or­ders.

Wetsuits for Paratriathletes Sep 12, 2013 Triathlon is an event that requires competitors to complete a three-stage race of swimming, cycling and running. Triathletes wear special wetsuits for the swim which are then removed before the cycling and running stages. Whilst still providing warmth and buoyancy, these wetsuits are designed slightly differently to the ones surfers might wear. They can be thinner and smoother to make them go faster through the water and they are easier to take off (the race does not stop between stages so it is really important to be able to take the wetsuit off quickly).

Here at the BSI, we're inquisitive people so we set about finding out more about those disgusting things called bogies.
