    Some socially monogamous species follow a system of cooperative breeding, in which helpers within a group help assist in taking care of offspring of other parents. This increases the chance of survival of the offspring, and provides them with care such as grooming, training, and guarding. Because of the way that offspring are raised within cooperative breeding species, the fitness of offspring is greater than offspring who are not given aid by helpers. I will be discussing research done on this phenomena and its effects on fitness in the red wolf (Canis rufus) (Sparkman et al., 2010), the white-fronted bee-eater (Merops bullockoides) (Emlen & Wrege, 1991), and the acorn woodpecker (Melanerpes formicivorus) (Koenig et al., 2007).

Selfishness and fear were the main motivations of Voldemort for bringing about his plan of getting rid of Muggle-born wizards and taking control of the wizard government or destroying it if refused to comply with his vision. He was selfish because he was afraid of being defeated and losing his power. He did not care about who lived and who died in the…

    War II consisted of approximately 125,000 people, and even if Voldemort murdered 100,000 people, that would still be an appalling and dreadful amount of lifeless people. Doubtlessly, Voldemort’s fondness for slaughtering is made worse by the fact that he discriminates by race who he slaughters just like Hitler. His actions’ similarity to Hitler’s actions is exemplified when Nate Hodges, a Ph.D. student at University of South Florida, presents, “The goal of the Nazis was to create a single,…
