American energy production has surged in recent years thanks
to hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling. These technolo-
gies have enabled energy companies to harvest oil and natural
gas from America's numerous underground shale rock forma-

Russia in oil and gas development. Today, the United States is
by far the largest producer of these fuels.

J.K Rowling was born in Chipping Sodury, July 31st 1965. Her childhood was generally happy, although she

by her less than ingenious school friends. J.K. Rowling says she never really warmed to her own name, although,
she does remember having a fondness for the name Potter from quite an early age. J.K.Rowling studied at St
Michael’s Primary School in Gloucestershire, before moving to Chepstow, South Wales at the age of nine.
From an early age, J.K. Rowling had an ambition to be a writer. She often tried her hand at writing, although
little came from her early efforts. Aged six
she wrote a book about a rabbit with
measles. After her mother praised her ef-
