    ... es not affect all parts of the world. It is most common in a city such as Los Angeles where these weather conditions exist. Ozone depletion is looked upon as a problem that up till now, we can not fix. Air pollution has caused this hole in the ozone layer. The ozone layer absorbs 99% of the sun's harmful energy. It prevents ultraviolet radiation from reaching the Earth's surface and the troposphere. It protects humans from sunburn, skin and eye cancer, and cataracts. It also prevents much of the oxygen in the troposphere from being converted to ozone (gas). In the mid-seventies chemists F. Sherwood Rowland and Mario J. Malian discovered CFC's were creating a global chemical time bomb by ...

  • As You Like It - 970 words
    As You Like It In William Shakespeare's comedy "as you like it," the themes of love, power, confusion, and betrayal as explored. The author's skillful use of dialogue combine with dramatic presentation to create a play that is both entertaining and thought provoking. The play begins with Orlando, who is one of the three sons of the late Sir Rowland de Boys, lamenting his inferior status in the family. "The spirit... which was within me," he exclaims,"begins to mutiny against this servitude. I will no longer endure it, though yet i know no wise remedy how to avoid it." Thus early on, we are able to glimpse the intense conflict that this character suffers both with his family and with himself. ...

  • Depletion Of The Ozone Layer - 1,052 words
    Depletion of the Ozone Layer Depletion of the Ozone Layer CHEM 151 Research Paper July 11, 1996 The ozone layer diminishes more each year. As the area of polar ozone depletion (commonly called the ozone hole) gets larger, additional ultraviolet rays are allowed to pass through. These rays cause cancer, cataracts, and lowered immunity to diseases.1 What causes the depletion of the ozone layer? In 1970, Crutzen first showed that nitrogen oxides produced by decaying nitrous oxide from soil-borne microbes react catalytically with ozone hastening its depletion. His findings started research on "global biogeochemical cycles" as well as the effects of supersonic transport aircraft that release nitr ...

The American approach is somewhat different. They will argue to great extent even if they are wrong. The American thinking of negotiations is often perceived as an opportunity to sit down and beat out an agreement trough debate and confrontation. We focus on the give-and-take approach and are allowed to make spontaneous decisions. We find great pleasure and prestige in being persuasive and are given a lot of leeway in our options to make an agreement. Most of all, Americans see negotiations as problem s ...

  • Ozone - 983 words
    Ozone annon Ozone is an important molecule in maintaining the homeostasis in the environment. Ozone, the molecule O3, makes a layer in the stratosphere, situated 10 to 15 kilometers from the earth's surface. The dioxide molecule, O2 and Oxygen atom O, collide with each other result in the formation of Ozone, O3. In this reaction, the molecule O3 contains an excess of energy. Once the molecule is formed, it is not stable enough to last long. The energy-rich O3 molecules discards the excess energy by colliding with another atom or molecule and transferring the energy in the form of heat. In the results of the decomposition of ozone into O2 and O in the ozone layer, solar radiation is absorbed. ...

  • Ozone Layer Depletion - 1,142 words
    Ozone Layer Depletion The Potential Effects of a Depleted Ozone Layer And God said, let there be light and there was light and then God saw the light, that it was good ( Genesis 1: 3-4 ). Undoubtedly, light is good. Without light man could not survive. Light is the ultimate cosmic force in this universe allowing man to progress and flourish. In the form of heat, light from the sun warms the Earth. Light, also, is the single most important factor influencing the growth and development of plants. Photosynthesis, a process by which plants incorporate light from the sun, allow plants to botanically grow and survive. Certain forms of light are harmful and thus can be said are 'bad'.

    ... re available to man, than being mostly confined to polar water regions, another principal food resource could be added to man's long list of them. Another important feature involved in a decline in phytoplankton numbers and productivity is the fact that phytoplankton helps produce and recycle the world's oxygen supply ( Bowermaster et al, 1990, p.40 ). An increase in ultraviolet light can thus endanger an entire ecosystem without necessarily killing off the masses. By altering the respiratory balance in an ecosystem a variety of species would be affected. Furthermore, the same oxygen recycled by phytoplankton is breathed by all animals and man himself thus adding to the importance of the ...

Plausible mechanisms include heterogeneous chemistry on sulfate aerosols [which convert reservoir chlorine to active chlorine - R.P.] and the transport of chemically perturbed polar air to middle latitudes. Although other mechanisms cannot be ruled out, those involving the catalytic destruction of ozone by chlorine and bromine appear to be largely responsible for the ozone loss and are the only ones for which direct evidence exists .

  • Shakespeares Rosalind - 1,048 words
    Shakespeare's Rosalind The main themes of "As You Like It" are the pastoral ideal and the ideal of romantic love. Forest of Aden is the primary setting where these themes develop. Nature serves as a refuge from society where we can find solutions to injustice and unhappiness. This play is a comedy and thus has a happy ending but it is not a fairy tail. Shakespeare highlights the difference between reality and illusion. Rosalind embodies the sensibility, the humor and the kind of love that leads to a happy, harmonious living. She brings the plot to a resolution when four contrasting romances end in marriage. The focus of the play is her romance with Orlando. Rosalind wants to find a lover wit ...

  • Shoeless Joe And The Black Sox Scandal - 411 words
    Shoeless Joe and the Black Sox Scandal After winning the 1906 World Series, the Chicago White Sox were not able to maintain their position of number one. They remained in the middle of the American League until 1915 when a new manager, Clarence Rowland and a new star, Joe Jackson, joined the team. Joe Jackson was a star from South Carolina who was known as "Shoeless" Joe because of his poverty-stricken childhood. Joe Jackson was dubbed "The finest natural hitter in the history of the game." In 1917 the White Sox won one hundred games in the regular season and went on to defeat the New York Giants in the World Series four games to two. Two years later the Sox were in the World Series thanks t ...
