General Riddles

Once upon a time there were two neighbors - one very rich and the other quite poor. Both were singers. While the rich man would sing in concerts, the poor man used to sing by the roadside. The rich man had this tendency to ridicule the poor man for his singing abilities. Once the poor man got infuriated and challenged the rich man that he knew all the songs in the world and could sing any existing song with whatever names the rich man could give. The rich man decided to take up the challenge and to make it more exciting promised the poor man that he would give all his wealth to him if he could really do so. He gave him the names of his four children - Jack, Jonathan, Williams and Harry. The poor man sang and got all the wealth of the rich man. What song did he sing?
"Happy birthday to you. Happy birthday dear Jack. Happy birthday to you!" "Happy birthday to you. Happy birthday dear Jonathan. Happy birthday to you!" "Happy birthday to you. Happy birthday dear Williams. Happy birthday to you!" "Happy birthday to you. Happy birthday dear Harry. Happy birthday to you!" "Happy birthday to you" - is an existing song and can be sung with any name of the world.

The captain of a ship was telling this interesting story: "We traveled the sea far and wide. At one time, two of my sailors were standing on opposite sides of the ship. One was looking west and the other one east. And at the same time, they could see each other clearly." How can that be possible?
The marines were standing back against the sides of the ship so they were looking at each other. It does not matter where the ship is (of course it does not apply to the North and South Pole).
