  • The Effects of Carbon Dioxide on Global Warming

    Scientists have long blamed global warming for significant changes in the form of global rainfall causing flooding in some areas and extreme drought in others. Many of these changes are considered to be man-made as humans are directly responsible for pumping large quantities of CO2 into the atmosphere. CO2 is a pollutant inducing global warming. Carbon dioxide, or CO2, is released into the atmosphere through the burning of fossil fuels. This chemical mixes with water vapour that comprises the clouds and typically hovers within the lower atmosphere. The presence of CO2 then traps the heat of the sun from escaping back into space and thus acts as an insulator for…

  • Water Quality and Contamination

    The most common ground water contaminants come from human activities that involve dumping of waste materials in the environment which eventually seeps into ground water reserves. Ground water is contaminated by constituents have the ability to either come into direct or indirect contact with this water. From this background, the experiment designed to test the effects the most common ground water contaminants. These were detergents, oil and soil particles that are the most used compounds by man in their daily lives. The experiment was conducted on the premise of proving or disapproving a predetermined hypothesis. The hypotheses stated that water would take on the appearance, color and odor of each…

  • Inquiry into Media

    It was at 11:40 pm in the night on 14 April. As usual, Frederick Fleet was on the look out when he saw the iceberg and reported immediately to the bridge. However, it was too late to steer around the iceberg because the Titanic was already struck. This caused the hull plates of the ship to buckle inwards and opened some of her watertight compartments into the freezing sea. These were five out of the sixteen watertight compartments that the ship had. The holes that were created below the waterline made the five compartments to flood with water. Titanic could not therefore survive with five compartments flooded with water. Comparison…

  • The Hidden Power of Oprah Winfrey

    The American Dream has often been defined as America’s promise of success and great wealth to anyone who is willing to work hard enough for it, regardless of their circumstances or the way they started out in life. If anyone can claim that her life epitomizes the American Dream, it is Oprah Winfrey. From her extremely humble origins, a tumultuous childhood and an adolescence filled with abuse, Winfrey has evolved into, arguably the most widely respected television personality at the helm of a multi-billion media empire.http://www.achievement.org/autodoc/page/win0bio-1 under editor Hugh Esten. Oprah Winfrey was born in Kosciusko, Mississippi in 1954 and spent her early childhood on her grandmother’s farm. At the…

  • Characters personality

    Vonnegut believes of love as a principality to survival. He depicts that love makes an individual’s life meaningful and worth recounting. Moreover, affection that one possesses towards another can be treasured and expressed in many ways. In his short story, ‘A Long Walk to Forever’, Vonnegut portrays how conflict, sensitivity, and essential decency depict an individual’s character. This paper discusses in depth about Catharine and Newt in the short story ‘A Long Walk to Forever’. Essentially, it outlines their character traits, their perceptions, and values in life (Vonnegut 2). Newt is depicted as a shy person since although he loves Catherine, he does not confess his feelings to her until…

  • Delayed Umbilical Cord Clamping after Birth

    Sometimes immediately after the birth of a child, in most cases, the umbilical cord connecting mother and infant is clamped and cut. This can take place as early as one minute (what is called immediate clamping) or as late as five minutes (what is called delayed clamping). Once the cord is clamped, it is cut painlessly by the nurse. Because the cord lacks nerve endings, the thick layers of the cord can be done away with a sharp instrument. Although clamping the cord occurs normally between one and five minutes postnatal, cutting can be delayed or omitted entirely. Usually, the cord stops pulsing between five and twenty minutes postnatal, and…

  • Live literary reading

    I go there sometimes myself, outside of school assignments. It is a rather large library, which has a great coffee shop. I usually get a cup of Java and a sweet roll, then look around for a comfy chair. With book in hand, I then settle in and before long, in my mind, I am no longer in Minnesota. I am amazed that even at the age of fifty I can still get lost in a book. Books have always had that affect on me. I find reading such a great way to relax. I feel the stress fall of me as soon as I walk in the library doors.…

  • Human and Animal Interrelationships in Alices Adventures

    The author has brilliantly utilized this scope of human-animal interaction throughout the story. These are the reasons why I chose the book ‘Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland’ for this particular assignment.Alice gets tired of sitting by her sister who has been reading a book. Alice cannot comprehend the fun of reading a book which does not have images or conversation in it. Suddenly a white rabbit runs past by her as if he will be late to reach the destination. Although there was nothing remarkable about the rabbit, Alice gets wondered when he takes a watch out of his waistcoat. Alice runs after the animal and thoughtlessly follows it down the…

  • Standards for Outdoor Recreational Areas in the USA

    A city should have a regional park that is bigger outside the city for recreational activities. However, even this area can be said to be inadequate unless the tracks’ locations have a clear plan, and meet their needs. They should also be exceptionally well managed and developed.Recreational standards have been there for a long time, in 1914 landscape architect Charles Downing Lay made an estimation for a park of 100,000 people. A reservation should be 700 acres, while a city park should be up to 400 acres and ten neighborhood parks every 250 acres. He also estimated that there should be fifty playgrounds located at the neighborhoods and 50 garden…

  • Toxic Leadership Process

    A multidimensional framework addresses toxic leaders’ intentionality, their destructive behavior, the types of dysfunctional attribute that drive their actions and decisions, the impact of their actions, and the intensity height of their toxicity.Intentionally, toxic leaders deliberately injure others and enhance themselves at the expense of other. Unintentionally toxic leaders cause significant negative effects out of their reckless or careless actions including incompetence. A comparison of different toxic leaders exhibits varying forms of dysfunctional perusal qualities, destructive behavior and degree of toxicity (Ralston amp. Pearson, 2010). A toxic leader who charm, but eventually manipulate, undermine, and mistreat his followers indulges in numerous acts of destructive behaviors (Ralston, amp. Pearson, 2010). An…

  • The Issue of Global Warming

    No matter what its causes are, there is evidence that global warming has serious consequences related to wildfires, coastal erosion, the spread of diseases, and a decline in biodiversity. Measures such as using cleaner sources of energy, stopping deforestation, upgrading buildings, and many others can be taken against global warming. Knowing what the causes of global warming are, steps should be taken to reduce or put an end to it in order to overcome the negative impacts it has on the earth (Walls-Thumma. EPA. e Walker and King101).Global warming can be naturally caused by changes in Earths’ climate, which is influenced by changes in the sun and in Earth’s orbit.…

  • Globalization

    Victor Turner evolved an idea of liminality, this idea was the correlation between the vexed, non-dualistic and shifting nature of identity. Bhabha confirmed that Liminality is regarded as the influence of cosmic eddies on the routine affairs of human society, and therefore the notion of culture is not defined holistically but as enunciation. The concept proposed by Victor Turner was based upon the traditional rituals and rites of Central African community. these rituals were based upon firm and historic belief of transitions between states (Song, 2005, pp. 12). The observations marked by Turner included that the society is a victim of alienation and the wave of confusion, misinterpretation, ambiguity. and…

  • Sprays and Droplets Dynamics in Fuel Injector Combustion Applications

    Combustion helps in ensuring safety and efficient energy utilization and in understanding the mechanics behind pollutant destruction and formation. Combustion dynamics is the area that has recently received fresh emphasis. This is because of advancements in the efficiency of energy, in low emissions combustion system for the aerospace power plant and the ground base. The existence of instability in thermal acoustic commonly referred to as combustion instability has been hindrances in the developing combustors for jet engines, domestic heaters, rockets, and for the power generating gas turbine. It is important to understand how to control combustion instability. In recent times, a reduction of the combustion noise has been prioritized, in…

    In the report Showdown with Iran, FRONTLINE undertakes an important assessment of how the U. S. efforts to install democracy in Iraq have served to strengthen Iran’s position as an emerging power in the Middle East. In this report, FRONTLINE examines how U.S. efforts to install democracy in Iraq have served to strengthen Iran’s position as an emerging power in the Middle East. ‘You will not find a single instance in which a country has inflicted harm on us and we have left it without a response. So if the United States makes such a mistake, they should know that we will definitely respond. And we don’t make idle threats,’…

  • The groups that were affected by the BP Oil spill disaster in the Gulf of Mexico

    To better understand the situation, a brief background of the how the catastrophe occurred is important. Deepwater Horizon was a 9 year old semi-submersible oil rig functioning in the waters of the Mississippi canyons, under lease of British Petroleum. At the time of the explosion, there were drilling going on for an exploratory well at depths of about 5000 feet. The well was almost funcationaly complete, whereas major cementing work was being carried out by one of the concerned parties/ contractor of BP, Halliburton (BBC, 2010). After completion of the well, it could be used as a subsea producer later. However, catastrophe struck on 20th April, 2010, methane gas shot…

  • The Roots of the IsraeliSyrian Conflict

    With encouragement from the United Nations, three world powers namely. the Soviet Union, the United States, and Great Britain acted as mediators and attempted to divide the territory but rather than resolve issues it only made matters worse. A number of wars followed namely, 1956 Suez War, the 1967 Six Day War, the 1970 War of Attrition, the 1973 Yom Kippur War and the 1982 Lebanon War. Syria had occupied Golan Heights, a plateau which borders Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, and Syria since 1946. Following the 1967 Six Day War, Isreal took possession of the plateau. Elliot Repko explains the respective positions of both Syria and Israel in the ongoing conflict…

  • Frankenstein and Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde An Analysis of Relationships

    When Dr. Frankenstein initially created the monster from the many body parts that he collected, it was his hope that such a creation could be an overall benefit to make. In much the same way that a father holds his son at the moment after birth and admires the perfection that nature has done, Frankenstein beheld the creature he had created and was seized not with admiration but with panic and horror at the thing that he had allowed coming into this world. Although the creature itself was incomplete and longed for human interaction, touch, love, and all of the needs that regular people have, these needs were not provided…

  • The Camp David Accord 1978

    The Camp David Accord 1978 was once thought to be a sway of fresh breeze under the hot weather in the wake of extremely stressed situation between Arab countries on the one hand and Israel on the other. The Camp David Accord was declared to be a failure by the future analysts. It was a milestone in respect of ending the deadlock between Zionists and Arab nationalists, giving way for the foundation of agreement for the opposing parties. However, time has shown that the Camp David Accord would not prove very helpful in maintaining peace in the region.Three horrible wars had already been fought between the two rival parties in…

  • Lands and Forestry (general topic) How cutting trees can affect water streams and fish therefore the chain of food

    In addition, cutting trees reduces the likelihood of cloud and rain formation leading to lower volumes of rainfall or precipitation thus reduced water quantities for plant life and other animals that live in areas with trees and even those that depend on other animals that depend, extensively, of trees (Indiscriminate Cutting of Trees). In addition, another common effect of cutting trees to life in the water that affects fish is the issue of temperature in the water and even in the air surrounding a forested area (Deforestation). This is because trees assist in keeping the temperature of the earth at a regulated level. which is crucial for the sustenance of…

  • Moral Intelligence Development

    This paper is an analysis of my main personal strength and weakness in relation to moral intelligence, as well as an analysis of my personal ethical code that serves as a guide for me to resolve future ethical dilemmas.In analyzing my personal moral strength it is important first of all to consider the moral competency inventory (MCI). MCI is the first serious system designed to measure the moral intelligence of an individual. It is a questionnaire originally designed by Lennick and Kiel (2007) that is available online which enables an individual to immediately carry out a self-assessment.After carrying out a self-assessment, it came out strongly that forgiveness is my greatest…

  • The Effects of Fair Trade on the Third world Countries

    The former group or the group belonging to the orthodox though are known as the liberalist and the second group which is strictly against the free trade and in favor of protection are known as protectionists.1. Free trade encourages the international division of labor. It implies that free trade promotes specialization according to comparative advantage and in this way, there is an international division of the workforce according to the efficiency. That implies free trade would bring about the global efficient allocation of resources. (Unger 2007,)3. In his famous theory, The Vent for Surplus, Adam Smith has argued that the underdeveloped economies are generally having the problem of surplus labor.…

  • Hughes Nature Imagery

    Ted Hughes’s nature poems include Wind, Rain, October Dawn, and November. The wind is a wholly descriptive poem. It describes a storm . The description and the fierce mood nature is beautifully recorded in it. The portrayal of a tremendous dramatic picture of a landscape severely affected by weather is fully packed with imagery. The poem begins with a kind of metaphor It Seems to the poet that The house in which he is sitting at this time had been out at sea all night. He has this feeling because all night a storm had been raging. It seemed to the inmates that the house was being buffeted on the…

  • Edgar Allen Poe’s The Cask of Amontillado

    Montresor avenges some unspecified insult inflicted on him by Fortunato and thus buries him alive. Significantly, the cause for the murder is rendered insignificant and the maneuvers and the actual execution of murder gain prominence in the story. The paradigm of sacrifice enters the story in the instance where Montresor warns Fortunato against staying in the damp catacombs for the latter seems to have a cough. Fortunato’s reply that a cough shall not kill him compounds the irony in the story and anticipates his predicament. However, it also highlights a kind of unstated willingness on Fortunato’s part in the scheme planned by Montresor. There is a suggestion that Fortunato may…

  • International Fast Food CompanyMcDonalds

    In 1953, McDonald’s Fast Foods’ most successful restaurant in Arizona was franchised. Similarly, the restaurant located in California was franchised. The outright success of the McDonald’s was with the entry of Ray Kroc who entered into a partnership with Mac and Dick (Love, 2008). He was given the right to expand the franchise. Owing to this new partnership, McDonald’s opened its new branch outside America specifically Richmond Colombia. This was the first-ever branch outside America. It is amazingly interesting to note that by 1963 the McDonald’s had more than 100 fast-food restaurants worldwide. It was between 1960 through 1970 when significant growth was marked. This may have been due to…

  • Effects Of Organic Waste Pollution On The Natural Environment

    Water cycle that consist of material flow on earth’s surface to water masses are some of the causes of water pollution as the flows collect materials into water bodies and are vulnerable to intentional pollution through domestic and industrial waste disposal. This paper discusses environmental effects of organic waste pollution and reviews an article that uses toxicology to investigate the impacts of water pollution on the natural environment. Effects of organic waste pollution on the natural environment Organic discharge into water bodies has varying effects on the environment. One of the effects of organic pollution is the disintegration of organic matter to changed odour and taste of water. Effects of…

  • Why the Allies Won

    This research tells that at the beginning of his book, Avery makes the point that one of the key issues which led to the victory of the Allies was the material advantage they had over the Germans. For instance, in 1943, the allies were able to produce 151,000 aircraft against the Germans 43,000 aircraft. This just shows how massive the difference was, and the situation was to be repeated in other areas of resource mobilization. Reading through the book, the insistence of the huge resource gap is repeated over and over. Even though the resources levels kept shifting between the two bases, the rearmament but the Americans coupled by the…

  • Impact of Financial Crisis on UK Economy

    Banks which had lent money to them, could not recover their assets and their capacity to lend too dried up. Consumer demand plummeted and this affected producers of goods and services. The result was a decline in the US economy accompanied by a sharp increase in unemployment. The impact of the loan defaults was felt across the global financial system, as many of the mortgages had been bundled up and sold to banks and investors. Soon, the global financial system awash with junk mortgage securities started crumbling.The financial crisis became acute in July 2007. Loss of investors’ confidence in the value ofsecuritized mortgagesin the United States resulted in aliquidity crisisthat…

  • The Strategic Importance of the Battle of Fort Donelson

    John Thayer became the leader of the Nebraska regiment. The regiment spent time in Missouri with General John Fremont in preparation for the war. The regiment marched directly through St. Louis where it was reported that several people thronged by the road to witness their hero. In December, the troops were under a constabulary duty to defend their state. The State had experienced some defeats earlier in August and this had caused many fears to the State. To defend them, the State waged a tactical guerilla war and bushwalking to counter their enemies. Major General Sterling Price had managed to confide all the southern in Missouri State with the aid…

  • Lake Mungo (Australia)

    Presently the main attraction of the Mungo National Park, Janesoceania.com described the landscape as being stark, silent, desolate and often eerie sand sparse only resurgent vegetation and the spiny hard pitted crinkled and fluted dunes and ridges can look like a moonscape. (Cited by K.K. Hirst, About.com) The lakes dried up around 14 000 years ago and are considered to be an extraordinarily rich source of fossils. The quality and quantity of evidence pertaining to the landforms, animal life and environmental conditions during the last ice age are of the highest calibre, in part due to the alkaline rather than acidic quality of the soils. Discovered in the 1960s, the…

  • Artificial Intelligence Machine Learning Algorithms

    In particular, the class prediction problem attempts to establish differences between the different classes. Knowing these differences allows the system to predict the type of cancer a patient has before any other tests are made.It should be noted that the class prediction problem is composed of two distinct phases. The first step is supervised learning wherein patterns are established based on previously known results and the algorithm is trained to match the given results. Once the system has been trained, it is then possible to use the system to evaluate any given input without knowing a priori the expected results. The goal of the class prediction problem is to achieve…

  • PARLIAMENT POLITICS AND POLICY MAKING

    The government Bills are customarily introduced in the House of Commons, with approved drafts going to the House of Lords and then to Monarch for the subsequent assent. While such a procedure creates necessary checks and balances system in order to prevent the possible implementation of hastily approved Bills, it still limits the powers of popularly elected MPs in favour of non-elected governmental bodies, The time limits on the readings of the Bills in one session represent a significant deficiency of the present system of lawmaking as well. As the sessions of Parliament are closed by the act of prorogation, each Bill that fails to be carried through all necessary…

  • Explain the difference between a change in demand and a change in the quantity demanded List and discuss at least 5 factors tha

    Thus the factors that determine demand can broadly be categorized into two categories. price determinants and non-price determinants. Presence of these two distinct determinants of demand gives rise to two different but equally important concepts. change in quantity demanded and change in demand. 1. Change in Quantity Demanded. A change in quantity demanded refers to the variation in consumers’ demand of a commodity due to a change in its price, other factors remaining constant. Thus, the only factor that causes a change in quantity demanded is price. In case of change in quantity demanded there is upward or downward movement along the same demand curve. The change in quantity demanded…

  • Construction Contract

    According to the research findings, it can, therefore, be said that during the period of work in progress, the architect finds that cladding materials used are of an inferior quality not in compliance with specifications of the designs and contract documents. This is violative of most of the conditions of clause 8.1 and its sub-clauses. As such, as per clause 8.2 of JCT98, the architect must notify the contractor of his dissatisfaction within a reasonable time of carrying out of the work found to be unsatisfactory. He may also ask the Contractor to open up any work already covered and test the materials used in the executed work or yet…

  • Digital Evidence &amp

    Legal Issues51250 The innovative ways of gathering digital evidence are so diverse that the structures created for the conventional investigations usually no longer work for the new (Richard, Golden, amp. Roussev, 2006). For instance, rules that are applied by criminal investigators when confronted with privacy versus security scenarios relative to physical crime probes, usually results in astonishing outcomes in the search for digital evidence. They allow extraordinarily invasive investigatory processes to go unchecked in some cases, and yet permit incredible threats to privacy to turn legitimate investigations into a cropper. Court rulings and Congressional laws, have shored-up the weaknesses of the search for digital evidence and the prosecution of the…

  • Sunspots and Sun Storms

    Sunspots occur in groups and appear and disappear at certain times. The sun could have hundreds of them sometimes and at other times only have a few. A sunspot can last between one and a hundred days. When they appear as a group, the sunspots can last approximately 50 days. Compared to the average surface temperature of the sun 6000º Celsius, the sunspots are about 1500º Celsius and can last from a few hours to a few months. In diameter, the sunspots can be as large as 80,000 km and as they move across the sun’s surface, they expand and contract. They can be explained as regions on the sun…

  • To Build a Fire and Young Goodman Brown

    Another interesting point is that Hawthorne makes sure to clarify that the journey which Goodman Brown makes into the forest is done at night and not during the day. If any trespasser were asked what comes to his mind with the thought of a dark forest, it can safely be assumed that by and large the first response would be related to the creepy feel that a dark forest exuberates. The dark forest sets the tone of the story and makes it clear to the reader from the start that what he is about to read is not a happily ending romantic novel or a light comedy, rather the dark…

  • The Cultural Industry as a Part of the Capitalist Society and Fiskes Argument

    Fiske states that ‘we live in an industrial society, so of course our popular culture is an industrialized culture’. In order to understand ‘popular culture’ in Fiske’s terms, it is worth making reference to his book Understanding Popular Culture. Here Fiske reiterates what lies at the heart of this article – the contradictory nature between industry and people. He, therefore, concludes that this contradiction has a necessary impact on the nature of culture. He states that ‘mass culture is such a contradiction in terms that it cannot exist. A homogeneous, externally produced culture cannot be sold ready-made to the masses: culture simply does not work like that’. (Fiske 1991: 21).…

  • Behavior Change amd the Environment

    .. Personally, I consider this idea as an expression of Pollan’s sense of responsibility toward the environment that primarily focuses on individual, conscientious action toward environmental welfare. This is because, throughout the article, Pollan provides suggestions on how to reduce one’s carbon footprints such as having a garden in the backyard. Pollan also suggests, in the later part of the article, that behavioral change for environmental welfare is an expression of independence, to find ways to provide ourselves without diminishing the world (255). Pollan also argues that although behavioral change may seem a futile effort, it is still a viable solution to the problem and this idea is grounded on…

  • Provide an argument for the claim that (some) mental states are not identical to any brain state Explain why the argument is va

    It also provides reason why that argument is valid and explains the resources the monist has at her disposal to undermine our confidence in the soundness of this argument. It also evaluates the response of a monist to the dualist argument that has been provided. The argument for the claim that some mental states are not identical to any brain state is supported by various premises. First, phenomenal properties can only reside in mental substances and not physical objects such as the brain. Second, physical bodies like the brain have spatial properties while minds do not have spatial properties. Third, a mind thinks while physical bodies such as the brain…

  • Film comparison

    One particularly important factor to note, with regards to the differences exhibited in style between Hollywood blockbusters and new wave films of the 1960s and beyond, is the freedom of expression and experimentation that is oftentimes exhibited within such new wave films. As Hollywood is creating films on a profit basis and positioning and/or advertising them according to the belief of the analysts that the film is a money maker, the overall ability of the actors, directors, writers, and producers to exhibit the same level of experimentalism and free expressionism that films such as Jean-Luc Godard’s Breathless is severely limited if not non-existent. To a great degree, this helps to…

  • Crime and punishment

    However, in a revocation hearing, guilt has been established so therefore some rights and rules of evidence are more relaxed. Even though the rights of a defendant in a criminal trial are more structured and strict than those of an offender whose probation is being revoked, the offender will always have the right to defend his or her position. In understanding the process to revoke probation, it must first and foremost be understood that without due process, probation cannot be revoked. This process is important in order to ensure that revocation is done for reasons that are valid and noteworthy and that the probation has been violated in such a…

  • Beauty and the Beast

    The focus in this paper is on ‘Beauty and the Beast’ as probably one of the most unforgettable theme songs in one of the greatest Disney classics of all time. The movie has been well loved and is, to put simply, an enchanting treat to audiences that have seen it. The movie has offered a potent combination of romance and enough wit to ensnare viewers young, old and the young at heart. The nomination for an Oscar nomination is indeed a testimony to this film’s quality. In a nutshell, the film is about a love story between a somewhat free-spirited country girl named Belle yearning to escape the humdrum provincial…

  • The concepts of existentialism and how they have helped in the development of the life journey

    The present research has identified that existentialism has a philosophical position which opposes the natural sciences around us. It explains that human beings are composed of many other components rather only mind, body and other scientific categories. Human beings cannot be understood by the scientific truths or the moral substances such as responsibility, character, values, blame, duty, and others. Existentialism thus defines that human conditions are not based on scientific or moral truths, but on further categories that come under philosophical theory and which are significant to understand human existence. The concept of existentialism emerged after the WWII when the violence had forced people to think that life was meaningless…

  • Big Greetings and Copyright in Barney

    In Preist v Last, it was held by the court that the purpose for which the goods had been bought could be either express or implied. Another important condition is that if the goods sold can be utilized only for some specific purpose, then there is no necessity for the purchase of such goods to question the seller regarding their appropriateness for that purpose. 4In a contract for the provision of services, there are certain implied terms. These are addressed by the Supply of Goods and Services Act 1982, under sections 13 and 15. Specifically, section 13 of this Act declares that there is an implied term, which obliges the…

  • Consistency of the ClientCentered Approach of Dr Rogers

    The therapist’s clients can pose vast resources for altering their self-concept, self-understanding, self-directed behavior attitudes. To access such resources, the clients are required to have a definable counseling facilitation climate whereby the therapist is more of a counselor or a friend who encourages and listens. Such a therapist is required to be understanding, warm and genuine. According to Rogers (1951), despite symptoms could emerge from past experiences, the clients are required not to focus to the past but on the present as well as the future. Therefore, a liberation of the clients from their past as well as helping them to attain personal growth as self-actualization is very critical. In…

  • Asthma as a Chronic Inflammatory Disorder

    It is suggested that 90% of the deaths caused by asthma can be prevented if proper measures are taken without wasting time(Anderson et al., 2007). In the United Kingdom, the overall percentage of the asthma patients has slightly declined, however, the number of patients has increased. This is because the population continues to increase, and the rate of increase of asthma patients in the population is lower to the population growth rate. Some of the common triggers of asthma include respiratory infection, cigarette smoke, and allergens like pollen grains, dust and other particulate pollutants, sudden changes in temperature, stress/anxiety, and exercise. The asthma attack is characterized by the narrowing of…

  • Effect of Regulation/Deregulation

    This paper illustrates that the 1994 Interstate Banking and Branching Act allowed banks and other financial institutions enter into interstate banking transactions. Prior to the act, Mr. Glaeser reiterated the banks and other financial intermediaries were prevented from legally entering into any interstate banking agreements. The act significantly allowed the increase of interstate mortgage credit transactions. Likewise, the relaxing of mortgage credit requirements was lessened. With the lessening, more people were able to have their housing mortgage papers approved. As expected the quantity of mortgage credit loan application disapprovals had significantly dropped. As expected, the new regulation’s allowing more mortgage credit transactions led to the rise of housing prices. There…

  • The Twelve Apostles

    The present research has identified that Philip was twenty-seven years of age when he joined the apostles. he had recently been married, but he had no children at this time. He was not necessarily dull, but he lacked imagination. This lack of imagination was the great weakness of his character. Philip, the onetime steward of the twelve, was a mighty man in the kingdom, winning souls wherever he went. and he was finally crucified for his faith and buried at Hierapolis. Nathaniel was brought to Jesus by his friend Philip. Nathaniel with Phillip was on his way to see John the Baptist when he encountered Jesus. He was twenty-five years…

  • When Love Hurts

    When Love Hurts Walther von der Vogelweide’s poems entitled Blissful He lay and How Beautiful Her Form and Face, both exemplify the aforementioned pains experienced by the lovers. The first poem speaks about the pains of love and parting while the other speaks of the pains of unreciprocated love and devotion. In Blissful He Lay, Walther tells the story of the love a cavalier holds for a young woman whom he was sleeping with. The lovers are devoted to each other but their situations are causing them the pains and fears that they have. Their story is known through the conversations that they have in the form of a poem…

  • Theories in Counseling and Therapy

    It also deals with the significance of early experiences and family constellations in the life of an individual. The Gestalt approach emphasizes the improvement of the whole rather than enhancing separate parts of the individual to help people cope with their problems.

  • The Challenge Of Prison Gangs

    Prison gangs have mutated from a small entity to something monumental with ideas that are philosophical and fundamental. The number of gangs and team members continues to grow in the United States. This has been the case in the last two decades of the 20th century. A study carried out in 1999, in the United States, showed that about 25% were male prisoners while only three percent were women (Shelden, 2004). In addition, some states demonstrate the high number of gangs compared to others. The prison gangs were first reported in the state of Washington in California, in 1957. A decade later, they appeared in other states such as Illinois.…

  • Grimm Fairy Tale

    Then as we learnt to read and write we began to go through the stores ourselves. Later the fairy tales were replaced by Enid Blyton and still later Nancy Drew and Alfred Hitchcock found pride of honor on our selves. In all this the fairy tales of the early years lingered in our subconscious and now when we read the book Grimm Fairy Tales we are pleasantly transported to our tender years as we try to decipher the similarities and the differences found in our retained memory and the actual contents found in this book. Let us now go through these similarities and differences in a short manner. Story The…

  • Rousseau’s Philosophical Ideas

    Hobbes, on the other hand, sees man as fearless and bent on attacking and fighting every chance he gets. Conditions have not really changed since then.The contemporary man is a hybrid of man from the eyes of Rousseau and Hobbes. The arms race, the never-ending struggle for supremacy in arms and military power, is an overwhelming testimony that even the modern man is in a constant state of fear – of conquest, of slavery, of tyrants. This is why man has not stopped arming himself, to the extent of covertly stocking nuclear weaponry. At the same time, Hobbes’ model of a fearless man comes to the fore whenever man’s independence…

  • Money Market Violations

    Money laundering refers to the process of concealing the sources or ways by which money is acquired. These processes of money laundering are varied and can be very much sophisticated depending on the intelligence level of the perpetrators.

  • Causes and Effects of Teenage Abortion in the US

    When a teenage pregnancy is the result of incest, the other parent of the unborn baby is either the father of the teenager, her brother or an uncle. Similar to rape, incest often comes without the consent of the other person. Sexual abuse can also be brought on by a male family member, but the teenager can also face sexual abuse from her boyfriend or a close male friend. The primary factor in both incest and sexual abuse is that the teenager had no say in the engaging of sexual intercourse. Unfortunately, physical violence can also be administered during the process of the abuse, rendering the teenager helpless to get…

  • Near Failure at Nagasaki

    The same problem is observed relating to Sweeney’s relation to flight engineer Kuharek such that when the latter firstly identified the lack of proper fuel in the tanks, Sweeney declined from communicating with Kuharek and moved over to Tibbets for gaining advice. Sweeney also reflected lack of self-confidence that is a significant necessity for a leader to govern combat operations. Firstly owing to his lack of proper knowledge of the combat he was highly dependent on the knowledge and expertise of Ashworth such that the latter exerted significant influence on him. Sweeney’s lack of self confidence owing to his limited knowledge again required Ashworth to help him identify and reach…

  • Critical Incident Analysis Definition Models and Frameworks

    In doing critical incident analysis, several models have been offered. Models serve as frameworks that will guide the person in analysing the event. It is the paradigm in which the event is made understandable. In other words, model is the lens that people use as they try to understand and make sense of their experiences of the world. As mentioned, the event acts as the precipitator of the analysis. However, the reflection in critical incident is not just a reflection of one’s self per se. It is deemed as reflection of one’s self in the context of one’s work. It is a purposive looking into the event and after the…

  • A Look into Judith Ortiz Cofers Quinceaera

    This is due to the fact that the celebrant’s mother and all of her previous ancestors were also able to celebrate the occasion, and they also had a chance to think about the possible things that could happen to them after they reach adulthood. It is also a known fact that the younger generation seems to think ahead of the older generation, which is why the younger ones are usually a lot smarter than the older ones, although not necessarily wiser. This poem is divided into several parts. The first sentence may be categorized as the realization of the end of childhood. It goes as: My dolls have been put…

  • Newjack By Ted Conover

    Firstly, Conover proves that where there is a will, there is a way. And secondly, his example through this book creation shows that whatever happens to a human being happens for a better cause. The author’s proposal of profiling a new recruit for journalistic purposes was first rejected, which prompted him to apply for the position himself and after a substantial wait of two years, he finally got a call from the defense offices.Ted Conover would not have been able to create a better picture than this if he was profiling a new recruit, as was his original plan. The book in itself is a masterpiece of emotions that are…

  • Types of Learning

    According to the findings, single-loop learning is indeed the repetition of attempts with regards to a problem at hand and there are no other variations in place to tackle the same since the goal behind this is never solicited. On the other hand, double-loop learning is that type of learning which aims to explore the basis of endeavoring to achieve a goal under different circumstances so that the goal becomes modified with respect to the experience that has thus been gained. It is also possible to simply reject the basis of this goal since a great amount of experience has already been gained. It can be undertaken by an individual…

  • Insurance Firms Against Insolvency

    This still did not prove to be sufficient to set the company in a stable position. The government had, therefore, to dig in deeper and provide some $150 billion. Other major insurance firms have been reporting some big losses which have been largely attributed to the ongoing financial crisis. Insurance company insolvency would result from a sudden big loss or continued losses for some time. This financial problem facing insurance companies raises the debate of what is supposed to be done when the insurance company faces the risks of insolvency. The solution to these questions lies within the control of the insurance industry.The government would be in a better position…

  • Bereavement and 9/11 Phone Calls from the Towers

    Several models have been proposed within the 20th century that has brought more attention to the matter and have improved awareness of the need for sensitivity towards individuals suffering from grief after recent bereavement or diagnosis with a terminal illness. These models have also illustrated the need for grief as part of the bereavement process.The stages are usually referred to in this order, but the model does not suggest that these must be followed in a linear fashion in the grieving process, nor does it suggest that each stage must be experienced only once (Flatt, 1987). The model was initially derived from Kubler-Ross’s experiences with those who had recently been…

  • Assessment of Qatari Traditional Architecture Responsiveness to the Environment

    This is not usually the case in most places. Therefore, the architecture has evolved to take the roaring winds into the equation (Mohamed amp.Bourennane 34). The main environmental challenge that the people and even the architecture have had to adapt to is the desert conditions. There is rarely any vegetation growing by itself. Even in cases where there is vegetation, it is because of the great care that is paid to it. The buildings are today being designed so as to be sustainable. This means they have to take the environment into account. The buildings now are therefore more ‘green’. They make good use of the limited resources i.e water…

  • Lease assingment

    The first item that appears uncomfortable is leasing the bedroom apartment because I am not allowed to use any other part of the premise. Flexibility should be enhanced to all tenants by the proprietor in terms of using other sections of the premises (Jacobus 282). Another problem in the lease is that the contract runs for a year. As a tenant, I have no flexibility in terms of terminating the contract before the stipulated period. Moreover, the property manager, who is Joe Daworker, is responsible for handling issues concerning use of premises. A problem may arise making me want to talk directly to the owner of the premises.

  • The Effects of Aggressively Pushing for and Intervening in Sovereign Nations

    It is this author’s strong belief that the Arab Spring in Egypt has created a fundamentally good thing. Whereas before no level of democratic process typified the way in which the government ruled the people, as a result of the Arab Spring in Egypt, elections have been held, a president has been selected, a constitution drafted, and a representative parliament has been formed. As opposed to before where Mubarak’s dictatorship was a seemingly endless definition of the future of the nation, the people of Egypt are now able to take part in their own right to self-determination, sovereignty, and the democratic process (el Faki 1). In this way, the effect…

  • Bureaucracy in Housing and Support Organisations

    Bureaucracy can be developed either in the context of the state or in the context of an organization. in the first case, bureaucracy is established through a bureaucratic agency while in the second case the framework through which bureaucracy is promoted is known as a bureaucratic enterprise (Calhun et al. 2007, p.264). The value of bureaucracy within organizations is highlighted in the work of well-known theorists, such as Weber. Of course, there have been oppositions towards the potential use of bureaucracy in the organizational environment. The risk of de-humanization of the organization involved (Du Gay, 2000, p.40) and the promotion of ‘technical ethics instead of moral ethics’ (Du Gay, 2000,…

  • Mirror

    I will look at the stylistic devices in more details to bring out the characters used and what the author talks about in the poem. In the poem, the author uses characterization uniquely considering how short the poem is and that the only person the mirror talks about is the woman. He shows the different state the woman is in when she uses the mirror and the author uses short words to accomplish this. For example, he makes the readers understand the emotions the woman is experiencing using very few words (Butscher, 2003). This way the reader comprehends better the trait of the woman as the author portrays it. For…

  • Credit Default Swap

    Someone borrows a loan from Bank (A) who then goes to Bank (B) to seek protection from the risk of C defaulting on the loan. B sells protection against default to A (the protection buyer) in return for half-yearly payments. B receives monthly coupon payments from C. If C defaults then A will get the principal portion of the debt from B. If however, the bond never defaults C (the borrower) will pay A the principal and A would continue making half-yearly payments to B until the maturity date of the debt.Companies use CDS to hedge against default on loans by borrowers. Company (A) would essentially seek protection from a…

  • Human Resource and Organizational Behavior

    The bureaucratic organization approach suggested the importance of employee empowerment for managers (GRIFFIN, 2010, p.455).Personality is referred to as the actions exhibited by individuals and the way an individual thinks about the world due to his/her experiences (GRIFFIN, 2010, p.67). Perception is the procedure through which an individual analyzes the stimuli available in the world around them (GRIFFIN, 2010, p.76).According to the behaviorist approach, personality is the total outcome of the connections that an individual has with his/her environment (GRIFFIN, 2010, p.69).

  • Construction of the Past Produced by Those in Power

    The views about the Chinese spread in Europe, views that portrayed the Chinese as rampant baby-makers who practised bad medicine and perpetrated a trade imbalance with the rest of the world. Women were largely ignored, or, if they are mentioned at all, were subsumed under the analyses of men during any given period. These were the images that were presented by the typical dead white man analyses. However, these views have been largely corrected today, and, even in the era before the 1960s, were contradicted by individual, powerful voices that corrected these historical oversights and gave life and voice to those who were oppressed by the traditional historical analyses.Typical historical…

  • Reviewing Decisions in a Court

    Administrative Review Tribunals do not have the power to review every administrative decision2. Where a tribunal is asked to review a decision on merits, it can intervene only in instances where specifically provided for by statute.3 Moreover the Tribunal must also have the necessary jurisdiction conferred on it. But there is much wider scope provided for a merits review, as compared to a judicial review since the former involves a reconsideration of the entire decision-making process and the decision itself to examine whether it is the correct decision, so that a new decision may be the result of a merits review. The Tribunal has the power for a wide range…

  • Situational Crime Prevention Techniques

    For punishment to attain its end, the evil which it inflicts has only to exceed the advantage derivable from the crime… Applying this theory, it will thus be noted that when benefits outweigh costs, the offender’s motivation to commit a crime will increase. however, the prospect of punishment functions as a deterrent, undermining the offender’s motivation to commit a crime. The underlying proclivity to commit a crime is largely dependent upon the free will of the individual and situational factors are not ascribed as much importance. The underlying assumption of this theory is that the choice to commit a crime is a free will choice and will be executed when…

  • Constructivist Accounts of Learning and Development

    The definitions of constructivism are very simple but for a better understanding of constructivism, we need to know different aspects of constructivism.Personal constructivism can be summed up by the following statement of Jean Piaget‘Knowledge is actively constructed by the learner, not passively received from the environment. Radical constructivism adds the second principle to trivial constructivism, which can be expressed as: ‘Coming to know is a process of dynamic adaptation towards viable interpretations of experience. The knower does not necessarily construct knowledge of a real world.’ These principles of personal constructivism and radical constructivism are actually the two basic principles of constructivism, according to Baber and Allen. They are:‘The function of…

  • Jehovah Witnesses Religion

    The first misconception that I had about Jehovah’s Witness congregation members is that they were forced to knock on people’s doors and witness to them all of the time. This always gave me the impression that they were very aggressive individuals. I do not mind meeting with people in my home to talk about my religious beliefs. Evangelical groups and Mormon missionaries have often visited me. I don’t know if it is simply a matter of style or what, but the Jehovah’s Witness members that I would meet with always seemed tense and ready to argue. I was told that this is the case because they are required to spend…

    However, if the contrary is true, effective external control of mitogenesis, such as that being done in cancer therapy, cannot be attained by modulating steps of D2 pathway alone. It can thus be agreed upon that D3 pathway warranted investigation. Comments on the methods The researchers thus wanted to determine 1) the effect of D3 ligands on the phosphorylation state of MAPK, and2) the signal transduction factors involved in this stimulation. To do this, D3-expressing Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells were exposed to different substances which inhibit proposed key factors in MAPK activation. The use of CHO is probably due to the fact that it is mammalian (and thus closely…

  • Interpretation of Hamlet

    It is evidently clear from the discussion that Hamlet becomes the object of counter-revenge, Laertes seeking requital for the murder of his father. By the last act of the play, after his adventures at sea, Hamlet is utterly convinced of the rightness of his cause and necessity of killing Claudius, whom he describes as cancer in society. He himself sees as a humble instrument of heaven, and to fail his duty in removing that cancer would be at the peril of his own soul. Hamlet ends in Victory and failure. The possibility that a man has been picked out to do a deed which society condemns but which a higher,…

  • The Language of Coaching

    In addition, due to these positive and negative effects of self-talk on athletes performance, a lot of investigation and critical interest has been shown towards the topic of self-talk by various researchers over the last years (Yang, and Mengze 357). Indeed, self-talk may defined simply as an internal dialogue where an individual interprets his or her feelings and perceptions in order to regulate, evaluate and then choose the best strategy to use in motivating and reinforcing himself or herself. Besides, most scholars have argued that self-talk has various physiological and psychological effects on athletes’ performances that usually result into positive performance.

The steel industry has embraced merger and acquisition practices as well as downsizing. The industry is moving from the traditional labor-intensive one to a capital-intensive industry. In…

  • Behavior and manners

    These events leave a strong impression upon one’s mind, which cannot be forgotten easily. Although I have proven to be a very good boy throughout my life, yet there is a regretful experience when I punched a person who was misbehaving with me. I ended up at police station. This experience is important for me as I learnt a very good lesson which benefitted me many a times after that. I was driving with my dad to the beach on a hot summer day when our car got stuck in traffic. It was a holiday and, thus, most of the people were out. Our car was at a signal. On…

  • Using Cell Phones While Driving

    Driver attention is affected by cell phone usage. In a 2002 study done by Harvard Center for Risk Analysis, empirical evidence supports that young adults using cell phones while driving are comparable in attention span to sleepy senior citizens over 70. Their reaction time to brake lights, as well as their reacceleration time, was a major cause of traffic congestion and snarls. The attention spans were compared as well with drunken drivers having blood alcohol levels of 0.08. this was in the drivers with hands-free sets. The distraction of conversation prevents them from processing what they see. Their driving impairment involved whole seconds of time, not just fractions of seconds.…

  • Commercial Space Exploration

    The year 1957 signaled the dawn of what is termed as the space age. At this time, the world’s powers were involved in a bitter battle to establish supremacy and control over other nation. The result was a race in almost all crucial sectors that involved world affairs. A German, Krafft Ehrike, came up with ideas which he contemplated would direct space exploration. He suggested 3 guidelines for space exploration. They were that no one and nothing under the powers of nature would enforce restrictions on a man other than the man himself. Secondly, it was the right of every man to transverse the universe up to his limits. Thirdly,…

  • Authentic Assessment and Rubrics

    Undeniably, a symbiotic relationship exists between assessment, teaching, and learning, as well. However, assessment has been sidelined, ignored, misused, and misunderstood for many decades until the recent emergence of importance assessment can play in the role of learner improvement and achievement other than the use of standardized scores for comparison or placement purposes.The rationale behind developing the Authentic Assessment and Rubrics is that it facilitates effective teaching and learning in students. However, Authentic Assessment and rubrics have gained a lot of popularity over the years especially in the high school level (Adams amp. Hamm, 2011). This assessment tool was not easily accepted in the past, but it has steadily gained…

  • Compare and Contrast Neolithic and Paleolithic Era

    Contrasts Between the Neolithic and Paleolithic EraIn the Paleolithic Era, people lived in a roaming way of life with a couple of individuals living in a cavern. They depended on chasing, angling, and assembling wild natural products.During the Neolithic Era, people found farming, which allowed them the chance to settle in one explicit zone. The people had it fortunate in light of the fact that they had the option to settle in fruitful zones, which were useful for developing different measures of harvests like rice.In the Paleolithic Era, no one had authority over their property. In that period anyone could simply take your effects, for example, land or apparatuses. In…

  • Oxygen the Ubiquitous Element

    Priestley and Lavoisier had made this gas first by heating mercury oxide (HgO) and subsequently by heating many other oxides. In fact, Antoine Lavoisier used these reactions to establish conservation of matter during chemical reactions.Oxygen is the second most abundant element in the atmosphere after nitrogen. It is approximately 21% by volume. It is a colorless and odorless gas at room temperature. Some of its important physical properties are listed below [3] in Table 1.Its symbol is O and as the pure element, it occurs in nature as diatomic molecule O2 and triatomic molecule O3 or ozone (in the upper crust of the atmosphere). Its atomic number is 8. It…

  • Significance of Identifying Different Phases of Negotiation

    Donelon and Kolb (1997) state, the requirements for getting work done reside less in the exercise of authority and more in the ability to communicate and negotiate with a wide variety of members of an organization (Cited in Spangle amp. Isenhart 2003, p.276). This self-evaluation is part of negotiation planning which is also the most important and initial phase of every negotiation. However, the knowledge in phases only does not constitute the structure of the negotiation. In order to get a complete frame of negotiation, we must have knowledge in Negotiation Tools i.e. Passive support, Active facilitative support, and Pro-active interventive support (Aurum amp. Wohlin 2005, p.153). Finally, the individuals…

  • Female Characters in Othello by Shakespeare

    Moreover, in the court, he also denies the murder. Using already existing plot, Shakespeare makes substantial changes to the play so that rather ordinary adventurous and criminal story becomes a serious tragedy.Instead of a crime novel, Shakespeare creates a story of the person who differs from the others not only by his skin color (I am black! ), but by the virtues as well: honesty, frankness, and childish trustfulness. His love to Desdemona is natural because they share these qualities and are so close to each other, as Romeo and Juliette or a couple of Macbeths. The brave soldier, the invincible general and the ingenuous child who does not know…

  • Major Allegorical Themes in Everyman

    By paying careful attention to the way in which the action takes place, the author has ensured that linguistic issues are correctly interpreted to mean what he intended for them to mean. These concepts are reinforced by yet further lexical means that support and underlie the main concepts or allegories as they are intended. The structure of the play provides the final piece in ensuring that the allegories are received as planned. Throughout the play, these three allegories of Death as a journey rather than an end, the worthlessness of earthly goods and the redeemable nature of man are conveyed through the action, the language and the structure of the…

  • Lufthansa Going Global but How to Manage Complexity

    In 2005,Lufthansa acquired the Swiss International Airlines with the purpose of saving it from the aggressive takeover by British Airways, which is one of the major competitors of the company. Lufthansa does not prefer to get too much involved with other members of the Star Alliance. This is basically a part of the company’s strategy of creating a perception that it is the dominating member of the alliance. In order to compete with low-cost carriers, Lufthansa has created Lufthansa Regional. Almost half of the company’s total German and European flights are carried by Lufthansa Regional.

  • The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini

    According to the research findings, whilst the cultural references and importance of representing the turbulence in Afghanistan and the American immigrant experience cannot be ignored, the often secular narrative of the book is precisely what resonates with the reader, who can relate to the central issues dealt with in the book. In particular, the references to guilt and redemption which is the focus of this analysis. Indeed, Hayes comments that perhaps one thing that surprised me is how much the Kite Runner speaks to all people in much the same way in their deepest needs to deal with their pain and guilt, to find forgiveness, and to do something good…

  • The Use of Size as a Metaphor in Gulliver’s Travels

    The research paper The Use of Size as a Metaphor in Gulliver’s Travels analyzes the use of metaphors in the story Gulliver’s Travels by Jonathan Swift. One of these metaphors is the varying size of the title character Gulliver as he travels throughout the world. From being a giant among the Lilliputians to being an insect among the Brobdingnagians, Gulliver experiences life from both ends of the size spectrum. Gulliver’s changes in size do not occur simply to provide a diverting plot exercise for the reader but instead are intended to be part of the metaphorical and satirical ideas presented within it. Swift was using Gulliver and his size to…

  • Anne Bradstreet and Michael Wigglesworth

    It is evidently clear from the discussion that Michael Wigglesworth (1631-1705), a New England Puritan minister, and a contemporary of Anne Bradstreet, was a poet whose work reflected New England Puritanism. He examined the dogmas of his time and used them for admonishing and consoling mankind through poetry. Wigglesworth is well-known for his poem The Day of Doom, filled with religious melancholy and written in ballad meter. It was widely sold out and became very popular. Both Anne Bradstreet’s and Michael Wigglesworth’s poems reflect Puritan beliefs of living a pure life devoid of indulgence, in the quest for Godliness, and in spreading God’s word to all. Anne Bradstreet wrote prolifically,…

  • The Eucharistic Ecclesiology of Henri de Lubac

    Lubac’s first book known as Catholicism (1938) showcases in 3 seminal structures his basic theological beliefs, where he accentuates on the fact that it is the entire community which as a whole takes part in the process of attaining salvation. However, his fame as a scholar was ascertained with the publication of two books, Surnaturel in 1946 and Corpus Mysticum in 1949. Surnaturel was a direct attack on the Catholic (and also on the Protestant) conjectures and on the attributions of the modern intellectual Christian reflective mind. Henri de Lubac in his entire theological career broke down many of the recent Christian tradition and sought to move closer to the…

  • The Screwtape Letters by C S Lewis

    Screwtape suggests that since Wormwood has already provided worldly pleasures to the patient, there is need to delay as much as possible the pleasures so that the patient does not get to realize that such pleasures are unrelated to his or her faith. According to Screwtape, as long as people are interested and absolved of the worldly things in life, they will find it easier to stay away from God. A man will, therefore, want to live a double life given the temptations of worldly things that cause distractions from God.Screwtape is worried about the Christianity in the young woman given the fact that she is a novice. Nevertheless, Screwtape…

  • Water Treatment Plants and Disinfecting Water Uses of Chlorine

    Guidelines set forth for water treatment professionals illustrate the process of using chlorine gas in a treatment plant (Kerri, 1989). Chlorine gas is fed into the water treatment system under vacuum supplied by various types of induction equipment. The entire chlorination piping system should be under vacuum to ensure safety. Chlorine tanks have a system of regulators to reduce pressure from the tank, feed equipment to accurately measure feed rate, and vacuum educators to deliver the chemical into the receiving water. Piping connections must be sealed with proper pipe thread compound to ensure pipe joints are not subject to chlorine attack, and compression fittings must be sealed with a new…

  • Anatomy of the Endocrine System

    The only exception lies for the pituitary gland, where the signals are sent by the hypothalamus to the pituitary gland in the form of a releasing hormone. As a result, a stimulating hormone is released into the circulation. This then stimulates the target gland to release the required amount of the hormone. When the required amount is reached in the bloodstream, the hypothalamus and the pituitary stop the production of the releasing and the stimulating hormone.Any malfunctioning in this whole system results either in an increased or a decreased release of the hormones in the body, thereby producing a different kind of diseases accordingly. As an example, an increase in…

  • Jihad in Relation to Other Islamic Tenets

    Defense and vengeance on behalf of their Muslim brethren – would have been noble, were it not contrary to what Islam and jihad are really about – that is, it places greater focus on peace and self-improvement than on armed conflict. Thus, this paper’s content will delve into the Islamic faith, specifically, the concept of jihad, both as most understand it, and as of how it is really defined. More importantly, it is intended to serve as a look into al-Qaeda’s mindset – how and why they use the tenets of their faith to justify their acts of terrorism – and explain why such terrorism cannot truly be considered Islamic,…

  • The Disease Leukemia

    Leukemia occurs when white blood cells transform into their DNA. Other alterations in the cells that are not even fully understood also causes leukemia. These abnormalities make the cells grow and multiply causing the normal cells to die. The formation of leukemia depends upon some factors like the age of the patient, the type of leukemia and to what extent leukemia has spread (Smith et al, 1994).The leukemia is classified into various categories. These include acute leukemia, in which the abnormal blood cells are not mature and can’t work normally as they grow rapidly. While in Chronic leukemia the cells function properly as they are mature and a person can…

  • Has Anti Globalization Become Mainstream Politics

    The movement of capital from where it is available abundantly to places where it has a high demand has always been associated with regulations, albeit new forms of regulation, that reflects the hegemonic power of that capital. An insight about the kind of changes brought forth by this flow of capital in locales that are entirely different from where it has originated shall lead one to understand the basic impulses of movements that challenge it. This paper makes a brief attempt towards understanding challenges against the larger process of globalisation in different parts of the world. Whereas the paper largely concentrates on the developing context implicit in its analysis is…

  • Alkali Flies in Mono Lake

    The lake provides saline and alkaline conditions that favor the alkali fly to a great extent while disfavoring many organisms that may otherwise compete with the flies for food, space and other resources. While they are not subject to much competition in their natural habitat, the alkali flies are food to predators such as birds and humans. The flies also face a threat from certain environmental conditions such as water currents, waves, extremely high alkaline conditions, and cold temperatures. The following section of the paper discusses the Mono Lake alkali fly including its habitat, natural existence, and environmental factors that impact on its survival.Alkali flies, also known as, brine flies…

  • Strengths and Weaknesses of Hamlet’s Character

    This assignment will begin with the statement that Hamlet is one of the most popular novels written by Williams Shakespeare and equally as popular is Hamlet, the tragic hero of the play. There are many dimensions of Hamlet’s personality, some good, and some not-so-good. An in-depth analysis of Hamlet’s character speaks of the fact that he is a tough man, who has the capability of generally making the right decisions in the times of immense pressure and stress. Thanks to Shakespeare’s skillful and psychologically-astute characterization, Hamlet is now considered to be the greatest dramatic character ever created. For one, Hamlet is extremely responsible and prudent. Although he had objective reason…

  • Itinerant Methodist Preacher

    Combined with the fact that Mary Evans was a respected scholar, and not simply a bored housewife who wrote a story, has led me to suspect that the assignation of Dinah to her particular religious practice was an intentional device in the story, and not merely a by-product of George Eliot’s aunt being a model for the character. This thought has given me an urge to look more deeply into the symbolism of Dinah’s religious occupation. This paper will concern itself with that symbolism, and with the function of that symbolism in the book, Adam Bede.This was George Eliot’s first novel (Wiesenfarth), and perhaps she brought her aunt and wandering…

  • Cushings Syndrome

    Definition Cushing’s Syndrome is a disorder involving the hormones and is particularly caused by an abnormal increase in the amount of the hormone cortisol or other glucocorticoid hormones in the blood (Nieman et al., 2008). In the case of an overactive immune system, glucocorticoids usually turn down the inflammation system as a sort of negative feedback mechanism. However, if there is too much production of glucocorticoids, especially cortisol, in the blood, then the entire immune system might be turned down, thus leading to a variety of numerous physiological disturbances known as Cushing’s syndrome (Nieman et al., 2008). Causes The main cause of Cushing’s syndrome is the overproduction of the adrenocorticotropic…

    Yossarian deletes parts of speech like modifiers and adverbs and the narrator says That erected more dynamic interlinear tensions, he felt, and in just about every case left a message far more universal (Heller, p.16). Reading between the lines, it is clear that Heller here is warning the reader that the story which follows will not have all the linking aids that people normally expect, but that a text with random gaps will require quite a lot of effort in joining the dots to make sense of it. The phrase dynamic interlinear tensions is chosen specifically because Heller proceeds now to construct a novel with exactly this quality. If the…

  • Fatigue in relapsingremitting multiple sclerosis patients

    2006, p. 58)Fatigue is very common among patients with multiple sclerosis and yet is it a symptom that is quite poorly defined. (Flachenacher et al., 2002). This very fact makes evaluation of fatigue as a symptom of multiple sclerosis difficult.

    neurotransmitters like the opioid systems, dopamine, serotonin and gamma-amino-butyric acid (GABA) and their interactions are most affected (Chastain 2006). Being volatile, alcohol can be inhaled during ingestion and freely diffused into the airways (George, et al. 1996). This property became the basis for the breath test for estimating levels of blood alcohol (Hlastala 1998). Changes in levels of important enzymes were based on the effect of alcohol on hepatic functions and characteristics (Purohit and Brenner 2006) and other diseases (Purohit, Khalsa and Serrano, 2005).
