- Water Pollution
Water pollution has affected many people and animals. Water pollution is
the disposal of garbage into a water stream. Some of the water pollution is from

The river basin covers an area of more than 3,349,000 sq km. Not only is the Nile considered a wonder by Herodotus, but by people all over the...
- BIGHORN SHEEP
The bighorn or the bighorn sheep, ovis candensis, is the family bovidae in the order Artiodactyla. It is a wild sheep with a silky coat similar to that of a deer, varying from brown to buff. The male bighorn, or ram, may be as much as 150 cm long, about 100 cm at the shoulders, and weigh 157kg; females are the smaller. The muzzle is narrow. Despite it's bulk, the bighorn can negotiate mountainous terrain, aided by it's sharp cloven...

The People of the Kalahari Desert
Introduction, Location and EnvironmentThe people of the Kalahari desert are extraordinary people. For centuries their hunting and food gathering techniques have enabled them to survive in the difficult environment of the dry, hot and barren Kalahari desert. They are known as the Bushmen. Or the Kung or the Gikwe since Bushmen is rather discriminating because the "Bushmen" live among shrubs and trees and sand and such. The people of Kalahari Desert liv...

The EPA: Can It, Will It Save Our Environment?
Pollution of our environment is an issue that concerns each and every one
of us. "The threat of environmental degradation now looms greater than the
threat of nuclear war." Patrick Henry said, "I know no way of judging the
future but by the past." In the past man has trampled on the environment.
"The word 'ecology' means 'a study of home.'" It means discovering what
damage man has done, then finding ways to fix it.The Environment...

- Acid Rain
Acid rain is polluted rain. The pollutants go up to the atmosphere and when
it rains it brings the pollution down with it. Sulfur dioxide and nitrogen
oxide are the gases that form the acid rain. When these gases mix with moisture
it can make rain, snow, hail, or even fog. The scientific term for acid rain is
acid deposition which means when the acid is taken from the air and is deposited
on the earth. Major industries, coal burning factories, power plants and

U.S. Wage Trends
The microeconomic picture of the U.S. has changed immensely since 1973, and the trends
are proving to be consistently downward for the nation’s high school graduates and high
school drop-outs. “Of all the reasons given for the wage squeeze – international
competition, technology, deregulation, the decline of unions and defense cuts – technology
is probably the most critical. It has favored the educated and the skilled,” ...
- Black Holes
On December 3, 1995, astronomers using the Hubble Space Telescope identified a black hole in the galaxy
NGC 4621, located 100 million light-years from Earth in the direction of the constellation Virgo.
This is the second super-massive black hole that astronomers using the Hubble Space Telescope
have found. Astronomers believe that the mass of this black hole is about 1.2 billion times the mass of our
sun, but it is concentrated in a space that is not any bigger t...
- Experiment #1
Title: Logic Gates
Objective: To analyze and become familiar with the operation of TTL Logic Gates.
Equipment: Digital Trainer
AND Gate (7408)
NAND Gate (7400)
OR Gate (7432)
NOR Gate (7402)
1) For each gate predict the output for all combinations of inputs. Write the truth table and describe the operation for the circuit.
2) Build each of the logic circuits to determine if it does operate as expected. Record the results.
Hurricanes get their start over the warm tropical waters of the North
Atlantic Ocean near the equator. Most hurricanes appear in late summer or early
fall, when sea temperatures are at their highest. The warm waters heats the air
above it, and the updrafts of warm, moist air begin to rise. Day after day the
fluffy cumuli form atop the updrafts. But the cloud tops rarely rise higher than
about 6,000 feet. At that height in the tropics, there is usually a layer of

I. INTRODUCTIONAmountain is an elevated land mass usually higher than its surroundings. Some are isolated, but they usually appear in ranges(MsBs95W32). "A group of ranges closely related in form, origin, and alignment is a mountain system; an elongated group of systems is a chain; and a complex of ranges, systems, and chains continental in extent is a cordillera, zone, or belt."(MsBs95W32). Some mountains are remains of plateaus, mesas, and buttes, through erosion(Summerfield). Oth...
