Sibling
A SIBLING is one of two or more individuals having one or both parents in common. A full sibling is a first-degree relative . A male sibling is a brother , and a female sibling is a sister . In most societies throughout the world, siblings often grow up together, thereby facilitating the development of strong emotional bonds . The emotional bond between siblings is often complicated and is influenced by factors such as parental treatment, birth order , personality , and personal experiences outside the family. However, there are cases where siblings grow up in separate homes, in different environments. It is known that both nature and nurture figure in development; researchers are attempting to ascertain just which one plays the larger role. Identical twins share 100% of their DNA

Council Estate
PUBLIC HOUSING IN THE UNITED KINGDOM provided the majority of rented accommodation in the country until 2011. Houses built for public or social housing use are built by local authorities and collectively known as council houses . Before 1865, housing for the poor was provided solely by the private sector. Council houses were built on council estates, where frequently other amenities like schools and shops were provided. From the 1950s, blocks of flats and three- or four-storey blocks of maisonnettes were widely built too. Flats and houses were also built in mixed estates. Council homes were built to supply uncrowded, well-built homes on secure tenancies at reasonable rents to primarily working-class people. Public housing

Watershed (television)
In broadcasting , the WATERSHED or SAFE HARBOUR is one or more dayparts during which it is appropriate to broadcast programming aimed towards mature or adult audiences. In the same way that a watershed refers to the crest dividing two drainage basins , a broadcasting watershed generally serves as a dividing line in a schedule between family-oriented programs, and programs aimed at or suitable for a more adult audience, such as those containing objectionable content (including graphic violence , profane language , nudity , and sexual intercourse , or strong references to these themes without necessarily portraying them). In some countries, watersheds are enforced by broadcasting laws. Due to cultural differences around the world, watershed times can vary; for instance, in New Zealand
New Zealand
, the watershed time starts at 20:30 (8:30 p.m.), and in Italy

it starts at 22:30 (10:30 p.m.)

Lesbian
A LESBIAN is a female homosexual : a female who experiences romantic love or sexual attraction to other females. The term lesbian is also used to express sexual identity or sexual behavior regardless of sexual orientation , or as an adjective to characterize or associate nouns with female homosexuality or same-sex attraction. The concept of "lesbian", to differentiate women with a shared sexual orientation, is a 20th-century construct. Throughout history, women have not had the same freedom or independence to pursue homosexual relationships as men, but neither have they met the same harsh punishment as homosexual men in some societies. Instead, lesbian relationships have often been regarded as harmless and incomparable to heterosexual ones unless the participants attempted to assert privileges traditionally enjoyed by men. As a result, little in history was documented to give an accurate description of how female homosexuality is expressed
