What Affirmative Action is and How it Affects America
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 while

surface of the Earth, it too is heated. In addition, when the warm air comes into contact with the already cooled Earth, it cools below its saturation point and creates low clouds, also known as fog.
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 air

There Goes the Sun: An analysis of Shakespeare's 33rd Sonnet
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 a

Finally, smiling is a known treatment for many ailments. Smiling can lower blood pressure, release “happy” hormones, boost immune systems, and heighten overall well being. 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.

While working at the museum he developed his own theory of evolution that made him one of the pioneers of evolutionary theory. "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 will change and possess these new traits. Also included in his evolutionary theory are four important principles: Life tends to increase the

It then attempts to reach the poles at high altitude. As it does so it becomes denser and sinks. Some dry air is then withdrawn back towards the equator creating the desert belt.The hot desert is very hot in summer and during the day. It is much colder in the winter and during night.

The Damaging Impact of Overpopulation on the Environment
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. Here are some of the

high temperature to one at a relatively low temperature. The internal energy itself, identified as thermal energy, is what people commonly mean when they say "heat." 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 that

The residuals ranged from -2.902796636835 to 0.661079014234. As you can see from the graph of the residuals, there is a point that is much further away from the x-axis than the others. This is probably because of errors in the experiment. Some of these errors could include: the temperature probe not being the same temperature as the water when the readings are started, a breeze cools the water faster, or the object was placed on or near a hot surface which wouldn't allow it to cool off as quickly as it should have.

When that lava comes to the Earths surface, it is red hot and sometimes the temperature is more than 2012 degrees Fahrenheit. Fluid lava flows swiftly down a volcano's slopes. Sticky lava flows more slowly. As the lava cools, the lava hardens into many different formations on the landscape. Highly fluid lava hardens into smooth, folded sheets of rock called pahoehoe. Stickier lava cools into rough, jagged sheets of rock called aa. Pahoehoe and aa cover large areas of Hawaii, where the terms originated.

around, allowing it to sustain large swaths of forest. 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 rainforest is an example of one extreme of the water cycle.

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.

These qualities can no longer be seen by each other, the once strong relationship will slowly fade away. As in the novel, Lydia and Wickham's marriage gradually disintegrates; Lydia becomes a regular visitor at her two elder sister's homes when "her husband was gone to enjoy himself in London." Through their relationship, Jane Austen shows that hasty marriage based on shallow qualities quickly cools and leads to unhappiness.'How little of permanent happiness could belong to a couple who were only brought together because their passions were stronger than their virtue'Overall I believe Elizabeth and Darcy's and also Jane and Bingley's marriages are the ones that would be most happy in life.

. One's breath carries away the heat, and the temperature falls below the ignition point of the matchstick. The stream of water from a firefighter's hose cools the burning walls of a building with a similar result (Lyons, 1985, 5).The heat of a fire depends on the speed with which chemicals combine with oxygen. This speed depends generally on the quantity of oxygen present. If a lit match is touched to a small piece of iron wire, it will not burn. If a tip of a match is fastened to the end of the wire, struck, and plunged quickly into a jar of pure oxygen, the wire will catch fire and burn, with bright sparks shooting off briskly (Lyons, 1985, 6).Fire Without Flame Fire may burn either with or

The ice has come and gone throughout history as the result of massive changes in climate and now, something is happening to it. The ice is depleting, though not as fast as the Arctic Ocean, and not quite the way you would think. And if we accept that it is depleting, what happens as the climate continues to change?

The polymerase chain reaction or PCR for short can be used to create many copies of DNA. This allows the DNA to then be visualized using a dye like ethidium bromide after gel electrophoresis. The process has been refined over the years, however the basic steps are similar.
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.
Annealing of primers is then possible when the temperature cools down to 37-65 °C.

The Theory of Plate TectonicsThe Earth's crust is cracked into twenty or so individual pieces called plates. Continents lie on top of the plates. These plates float on the molten rock or magma from the mantle and move slowly. The idea of moving plates is called the Theory of Plate Tectonics, which was first developed by Harry Hess in 1962. The theory explains the how and why behind earthquakes, mountains and volcanoes as well as how centuries ago similar animals could have lived at the same time on what is now separated continents. There is much evidence supporting this theory.The earliest world maps showed that continents joined together like a jigsaw puzzle. As centuries past the maps

But if the deflation occurs, people will try to sell their assets before it looses its value.Another factor that is affected by inflation is the interest rate.

When the bird is not in water the water is evaporating and inside the head of the bird the temperature drops.
