I think that Twain is trying to tell the youth that we don't need advice to become better, we just need to start learning on our own how to improve on the topics he selected which is every teenagers problem. But eventually we will grown out of all theses topics. To deliver his message Twain tries to use examples and make them as funny as can be.To make us the reader laugh and understand that life is short. Why take it so serious.
This is a successful piece because its something we the teenagers go through everyday and get upset bout some of the things he pointed out and when he puts them in a joking matter it easier to understand that maybe its not so bad to listen to our parent to avoid violence and that everyone is bad at lying. Even with practice ,so i believe.

Wind power in Australia is clean and renewable and a typical wind turbine can meet the energy needs of up to 1000 homes. The technology is proven, fast to build and economical compared with other renewable energy technologies. There were 42 wind farms operating in Australia as at February 2007.
Australia is the highest emitter of greenhouse gases per capita in the developed world and wind power is well placed to grow and deliver greenhouse gas emission cuts on a cost competitive basis. A typical 50 megawatt wind farm in Australia can reduce greenhouse gas emissions by between 65,000 and 115,000 tonnes a year.

I think that Al Gore's speech was very interesting . He spoke about things that everybody know are happening , But we refuse to accept it, because we don't want to believe that we the people also have been part of some of the bad things that are happening in todays world.

for example . When I was a little girl I had lost my favorite sweater and I remember a girl in my class Samantha telling me "I saw Erica taking the sweater out of your bag ". I didn't want to believe it until I saw my classmate Erica with the sweater on the following day . I went home and told my mom , My mom came to school the following day and asked to speak with Erica's mother, It turned out being that Erica had the same sweater I had and she never took it out my bag . I felt so bad for accusing her but I just thought I was right because she had the same sweater I had . Samantha was the one who took the sweater out of my bag and her mom returned to me . I apologized to Erica for accusing her without proof that it was her , The only proof I thought I had was wrong so ever since then I've learned to not believe everything I hear and what I see isn't always what it looks like .
I think this is a good example for this quote because even though whats in front of you makes sense it may not be what you think . So don't always trust your eyes .
"Tell me who your friends are and I will tell you who you are"
My mother told me this quote a lot once I went to J H S. I started hanging out with people my mother didn't approve of . And slowly I started acting like them and starting picking up bad habits . My grades started going down , I Was acting real mean with my brother , Sisters and mom, I started feeling bad. I later stopped hanging out with them and realized what my mom was trying to say with this quote. I now learned my lesson.
