Everyone in America has certain rights today written in a government document called the U.S. Constitution, but who is to say that they are enforced? One could turn on the television, read the newspaper, or listen to the radio only to hear about how someone is treated unfairly due to this evil action referred to as discrimination. Almost everybody in this great country has experienced some form of discrimination be it age, sex, race, or ethnic background. Whose job is it to protect the citizens of America from being treated unfairly? This answer is best defined by two words: Affirmative Action. Interesting questions arise whileVIEW DOCUMENT

Second, lava tubes may be formed. These can be small like mentioned above, or quite large through which a person can actually walk. They are formed when lava cools on the outside and then flows out, leaving a tunnel. Finally, various products can be formed as lava cools. The most common is obsidian glass, a shiny rock that is hard and extremely sharp. Obsidian forms when lava cools very quickly.Kilauea is a volcano in the middle of a tectonic plate, or intraplate, which generallyVIEW DOCUMENT

The circulation of the warm and cool air is called Convention. As the warmer air rises, it cools, and the humidity level rises. When it is completely cooled, the air’s humidity level is at 100%. This causes local winds, breezes, and clouds. These winds and breezes are what help move air masses from one place to another.
Air masses are extensive homogeneous regions of air, each of which move around at their own speed, with a unique humidity level and temperature. When two different airVIEW DOCUMENT

Who doesn’t love a bright summer morning? Sadly, even the greatest days are cloaked in stifling clouds. William Shakespeare, in his “Full Many a Glorious Morning Have I Seen”, connects both types of days to something much greater. Through the extended metaphor of the sun, he discusses a man's wonder and impassivity towards life.
Like one’s childhood, the poem begins with pure joy. Shakespeare begins the poem with “Full many a glorious morning have I seen / Flatter the mountain-tops with sovereign eye.”(1-2) On a surface reading, the poet is saying how wonderful the day is. This can be extended to a early life, too. When aVIEW DOCUMENT

From this, research proves that smiling is something we all need to learn to do and actually appreciate it. Like most things psychological, happiness can be trained through methods shown in the studies mentioned, mindfulness training, or even exercise. Smiling can benefit oneself and others, therefor everyone should smile more.

6.5 billion…This is not a whole lot of bacteria, but when it comes to humans, it is a very formidable number. The human population has been increasing at an extremely high rate in the last century and unfortunately, not much has been done to slow down this process. Undoubtedly, overpopulation is a global issue. It is global because it pertains to all of humanity, but global also means that it affects the whole world, i.e. the environment. Almost all human activities impact negatively the environment in one form or another, and as human population expands, the damaging effects on the environment multiply.

"He conceived of evolution as the result of the adaptation oforganisms to the environment and that this adaptation was transmitted from parent to offspring" (Comas, 55). Lamarck believes that something changes in the environment and individually organisms change to best fit their needs. After a series of similar adaptations the species willVIEW DOCUMENT

A form of kinetic energy due to the movement of molecules, thermal energy is sometimes called molecular translational energy. (Thermal Expansion)
Thermal expansion is calculated by using a coefficient to determine how materials will react to changes in temperatures. The coefficient is a number that serves as a measure for some characteristic or property. It may also be a factor against which other values are multiplied to provide a desired result. For any type of material, it is possible to calculate the degree to which thatVIEW DOCUMENT

Per Moeller (2013), the sunlight causes the air to heat quickly, forming clouds as it cools, but the clouds turn into rain as it cools even more. Some of the clouds do not make it very much higher than the forest tops before it falls again as rain. Additionally, the soil, leaves and branches of the trees themselves also release vapor that turns into rain in a process called evapotranspiration (U.S.G.S., 2013).

The current prevailing theory, as discussed in the article by Melott et al., is that a comet could have caused a great enough increase in the greenhouse gas nitrate that would result in warming (2010). This warming could have started the chain reaction that eventually led to the start of the Younger Dyras. The effects of greenhouse gasses are prevalent today, with increased contributions from humanity over the past few thousand years. The affects of this do not go unnoticed by the global climate.

Scientists all over the world are studying this problem, and are coming up with many theories. Many natural events appear to have altered global climates, including meteorite impacts, volcanic eruptions, and changes in the compositions of the earth's atmosphere ([On-line], 1998).The most important factor seems to be composition of the atmosphere, which affects the intensity of the Earth's greenhouse effect. Scientists now know that many changes in past climates seem to occur at the same time that changes in the concentration of CO2 also occurred. When the Earth's average globalVIEW DOCUMENT

The first is to denature dsDNA through heating to ~96 °C. This separates the two strands of DNA. The exact temperature to be used can be calculated with Tm = 4oC x (no. of G & C) + 2oC x (no. of A & T). Tm is the melting point of the strands and to supply the number of G, C, A, & T ‘s the primer is used.

Diamonds can be produced naturally or synthetically. Diamonds are believed to form naturally in molten lava at extreme pressures and scorching heat.

The heavier, cooler air over the water moves in, to take its place and creates local winds. At night, the winds are reversed because the air cools more rapidly over the land than over the water. Similarly, the large atmospheric winds that circle the earth are created because the surface air near the equator is warmed more by the sun than the air over the North and South Poles. Wind is called a renewable energy source because wind will continually be produced as long as the sun is shining on the earth. Today, wind energy is mainlyVIEW DOCUMENT

This process starts on the outside of the bird, when the beak is dipped in the water, it travels up the felt material. When the bird is not in water the water is evaporating and inside the head of the bird the temperature drops. This is much like when an animal sweats and because of evaporation the animal is cooled off.
