    1. Meanings of words and phrases
    2. A long time ago, people thought the world was at the center of the universe because it seems like the stars, the moon, and the sun all circle the earth as they rise in the east and set in the west and the earth doesn't seem to move at all. When someone says this to another person, that person is usually very selfish or self-centered and doesn't consider other people. It is like they think they are the center of the universe and everything is here for them. Saying "the world doesn't revolve around you" is saying "you're not the most important thing in the world, you need to stop being so selfish/self-centered and think about others."

    2. It's confusing because the definitions change depending on the context. In everyday English, rotate and revolve can be used interchangeably, although sometimes one sounds more natural than the other. In mathematics, rotate can refer to any angular movement or translation. So something can rotate on its own axis or around something else. In astronomy, rotate is specific to the object's own axis and revolve is specific to orbital motion around another object. So I would not say that the examples are not* outdated, however a scientist (or at least an astronomer) would usually say that "The earth rotates on its axis". In summary, the words get used interchangeably in many cases and there is no particular rule (that I know of) that determines which word is the most natural sounding in a given situation. For that, I think you just have to learn through experience.

    2. The sentence means, more or less: "If I'd known she was going to talk about the Magnitsky Act, I wouldn't have gone to the meeting. I feel like I wasted twenty minutes." In this sentence, I think he is using "All else being equal" to mean "if I'd had the choice" or "if I'd known" or "on the whole." Trump Jr. is claiming that he thought Veselnitskaya would talk about something else, and he was unhappy when she talked about the Magnitsky Act instead. However, this is not a very typical use of "all else being equal"! We use it to talk about hypothetical choices we would make, but usually we use it to mean "if there were no other differences." For example: - All else being equal, I'd rather live in the country rather than the city. - All else being equal, I'd rather stay close to my family. - All else being equal, I'd prefer to work in a big firm rather than a small one. In these situations, you are saying that your GENERAL preference is to live in the country rather than the city, but that's only with "all else being equal." If you were offered a great job in the city and no job in the country, you might prefer to live in the city instead.

    2. Who are physicists? They are THE people who have helped us understand how the universe works, from the behavior of particles to the movement of planets. New technologIES HAVE BEEN DEVELOPED through their discoveries and THEY answer questions SUCH AS: Where do we come from? Why are we here? I really admire them due to their dedication to research not only on what I have just mentioned but also on new ways to protect the environment and improve the quality of human life. Physics is one of the most important sciences because it studies the behavior of bodies, light, waves, stars, electromagnetism, energy, and many other things. IN ADDITION TO intelligence, being a physicist requires creativity, persistence and hard work. I also admire physicists because they OFTEN have difficulties with their theories or ideas and they overcome them. For example, Galileo Galilei was an astronomer who supported Heliocentrism, which means that the Earth and planets revolve around the sun. HE was so sure about his theory that he defended it and stood against Geocentrism, DISREGARDING the Catholic church’s beliefs. For that reason, he was sentenced to life imprisonment even though he was right. Luckily, his model is proven now. I think physicists are amazing and should be respected and recognized by everyone. These experts have contributed to the comprehension of what surrounds us and to the advancement of applied science.
