Every culture, society, individual and origination among the world has its own courtesy as a sign of respect and civility. The courtesy shows the politeness, attitude and behavior to others, although it may be varied among societies and individuals. In every society, the courtesy has its own golden rule that people try to live by. The courtesy is positively influenced by the religion, culture and civilization.

The Arab culture is considered one of the most hospitable cultures in the world. The Arab culture guests always experience generosity, hospitality and friendship. The Arab’s generosity is inherited from one generation to another regardless the time, place and religion. In pre-Islamic phase, there was a famous and generous man called Hatem Al-Taeei. He was a Christian and known by his extreme generosity that made him well known in Arab society up to date. There is a saying in Arabic "More generous than Hatem" that represent how generous the person is. One of the stories that made him so famous in generosity, he sacrificed his favorite and only horse for his guests, as he had nothing to serve them.
Another example of the Arab’s generosity is during the early Islamic phase when the Holy Prophet Mohammad (S) established brotherhood among the Muslims. These Muslims had left all their wealth and possessions in Makka to come with the Holy Prophet (S) to Madina. They had no wealth or property. The other Muslims in Madina gave over one half of their wealth to their new brothers so that they could live comfortably in Madina.
On the other hand, Islam is promoting the generosity and there are a lot of sayings support the generosity. People are applying the generosity as rule in their daily live. They were inspired by the good stories in the past and by the current Islamic rules as well.
In conclusion, the generosity of the Arab’s...

languages, it is by tradition often used to illustrate to beginners the most basic syntax of a programming
language. It is also used to verify that a language or system is operating correctly.

A "Hello, world!" program has become the traditional first program that many people learn. In general, it is
simple enough so that people who have no experience with computer programming can easily understand
it, especially with the guidance of a teacher or a written guide. Using this simple program as a
basis, computer science principles or elements of a specific programming language can be explained to
novice programmers. Experienced programmers learning new languages can also gain a lot of information
about a given language's syntax and structure from a "Hello, world!" program.
In addition, "Hello, world!" can be a useful sanity test to make sure that a language's compiler, development
environment, and run-time environment are correctly installed. Configuring a complete

...myself who has instilled a lot into me that will help me in life. Maybe that includes raising some children of my own.
1. Why did the men say that they were ready for children? There were things they wanted to do as a couple before they had children. So they took the time out to enjoy their lives because they were in no rush to have children and they probably knew that once they brought a child into the world that a lot of the things they want to do will cease.
2. What did the men have to learn as new fathers? They had to learn to get involved in their children’s’ lives because before they were fathers they were not too much involved with babies.
3. Do you think the fathers enjoy fatherhood more today than in the past? Why or why not? It depends on the man. It also depends on many other factors like if the birth of this child was planned. It may have been unexpected and they weren’t prepared which could lead to stress; in my opinion that is not enjoyable. Men who wanted a child and who are in a good steady marriage or relationship where they agreed on this child are probably happier and enjoy parenthood because they knew some things to expect and they tried to plan for it.
4. What are some of the difficulties that new fathers (and mothers) face? Being sleep deprived. Feelings like they aren’t doing things right. Communication. Being frustrated and not communicating with your spouse can put a great strain on the relationship and an added child to...
