  • Birds - 560 words
    Birds If I could be any animal in the world, I would like to be a bird. There is no particular bird that I would most enjoy being. I could be the smallest blue jay, or the most dangerous hawk, neither is more intriguing to me. There are two reasons why I would like to be a bird, and only one reason I would not. I believe the bird is a beautiful creature, and I also believe that the bird is the luckiest creature to ever live. But, then there are the few downsides to being a bird. The downsides are few, but significant. Let's take the penguin for example. What terrible thing could a bird have done to be a wingless, legless bird stuck in the middle of the South Pole! The poor things must be mis ...

  • Earth Planet - 2,166 words
    Earth Planet The Earth, man's home, is a planet. The Earth has special characteristics, and these are important to man. It is the only planet known to have the right temperature and the right atmosphere to support the kind of environments and natural resources in which plants and man and other animals can survive. This fact is so important to man that he has developed a special science called ecology, which deals with the dependence of all living things will continue to survive on the planet. Many millions of kinds of plants and animals have developed on Earth. They range in size from microscopic plant and animals to giant trees and mammoth whales. Distinct types of plants or animals may be ...

    ... salt dissolved in the oceans is, on the average, 34.5 percent by weight. About the same percentage can be obtained if three quarters of a teaspoon of salt is dissolved in eight ounces of water. Water Supply for the Earth Water that evaporates from the surface of the oceans into the atmosphere provides most of the rain that falls on the continents. Steadily moving air currents in the Earth's atmosphere carry the moist air inland. When the air cools, the vapour condenses to form water droplets. These are seen most commonly as clouds. Often the droplets come together to form raindrops. If the atmosphere is cold enough, snowflakes form instead of raindrops. In either case, water that has tr ...

  • Environmental Pollution - 752 words
    ENVIRONMENTAL POLLUTION Automobiles all around the world everyday, and their exhaust destroys our air everyday. Our environment is a major aspect of our life today. Many of us dont take our Earth seriously and think that as long as pollution doesnt hurt them they can go ahead and throw garbage on the ground or spill oil down the drain. Well to many people have that theory and they are killing off our Earth and also physically harming themselves from the air they breath and the water they swim in. Our Earth is fragile like a human and people don't know. There are many different types of environmental pollution (e.g. Water, air, atmosphere.) Scientists believe that all cities with populations ...

  • Importance Of Yinyang - 602 words
    Importance Of Yin-Yang This symbol, known as the Tai Chi Chu symbol, or Yin-Yang symbol has its roots in ancient Chinese cosmology. The original meaning of "yin and yang" is representative of the mountains--both the dark side and the bright side, or the contrasting shaded and sunlight slopes of the mountain. These two words can possibly be traced back to the Shang and Chou Dynasty,(1550 - 1050BC). But most scholars credit the "Yin and Yang" to the Han Dynasty (206B.C.-A.D. 220). At this time, The Yin Yang School was founded by Tsou Yen. It combines the ancient philosophy of the 5 elements: wood, fire, earth, metal, water; and combined them into a cosmology of cyclical movements. The arrangem ...

  • Mars - 676 words
    Mars Mars would make a lousy host for the Winter Olympics. Yes, there's the lack of air to consider. But more important, Martian snow turns out to be rock hard. Worse, it is melting away at an alarming rate. In fact, Mars may be in the midst of a period of profound climate change, according to a new study that shows dramatic year-to-year losses of snow at the south pole. It is not yet clear, though, if the evidence of a single year's change represents a trend. But the study provides a surprising new view of the nature of the southern ice cap, said Michael Caplinger of Malin Space Science Systems. It's saying that the permanent cap isn't quite so permanent as we thought, Caplinger said in a t ...

  • Mars Polar Landing - 647 words
    Mars Polar Landing A momentous occasion has been bestowed upon us. The Mars Polar Lander will try to reach its destination of Mars southern polar ice cap. The Lander was presumed to touch down on Friday December 3, 1999. It was launched from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station Space Launch Complex 17 on January 3, 1999 and hopefully it has finally reached the surfaces of Mars. This mission is worth $327.6 million total for both orbiter and Lander (not including Deep Space 2). Those figures come from $193.1 million for spacecraft development, $91.7 million for launch, and $42.8 million for mission operations. March 1, 2000 is the anticipated end of the Primary Mission. This truly a feat of human ...

  • Plants In Extreme Conditions - 1,053 words
    Plants In Extreme Conditions In many ways, plants are far more versatile and successful to life on earth than animals and have been here for far longer. They were the first to colonise this planet and without them we would not exist, for we are totally dependent on them. Even today with all our technology they continue to amaze us with their ability to inhabit places we humans could not survive, from the frozen Antarctic to the intensity of a volcanic spring, plants utilise their environments to their own advantage and evolve to survive the harshest of landscapes. A plant needs four basic things to survive, water, warmth, light and minerals and any place that can provide even a little of the ...

  • Plate Tectonics - 1,520 words
    Plate Tectonics Plate Tectonics Since the beginning of human kind there has been a cloud of wonder regarding the origin of our planet. Scientist interested in this field through out the years have developed many different theories to how our planet came about. Before the Twentieth Century, scientist and geologist alike revolved in the idea that Mountain building was due to the massive contractions of the earth caused by the gradual cooling of molten rocks. In 1900, American scientist Joseph Le Conte, published an article in the Appletons Popular Scientific Monthly. He described that the problem in understanding mountain building was establishing the cause of sideways pressure. The most obvio ...

  • Romantism Subjects - 1,680 words
    Romantism Subjects During the Romantic Period there seemed to be revolution in the air. The American Revolution and the French Revolution of 1789 had a great impact on literature of the late 18th and early 19th centuries. This impact can be seen throughout Romantic literature but especially in the area of new subjects. Before the 19th century authors tended to write about the aristocratic class. There was nothing written for or about the common people. There are three areas in which the discussion will focus upon in the area of new subjects. The first area will focus on the children, the second will be women, and the third will be the new attitude towards God. The Romantic period strongly em ...

  • Santa Or Satan - 567 words
    Santa Or Satan? To Whom It May Concern: I regret to inform you that, effective immediately, I will no longer be able to serve Southern United States on Christmas Eve. Due to the overwhelming current population of the earth, my contract was renegotiated by North American Fairies and Elves Local 209.

However, I'm certain that your children will be in good hands with your local replacement who happens to be my third cousin, Bubba Claus. His side of the family is from the South Pole. He shares my goal of deli ...

  • The Moon - 625 words
    The Moon The moon The moon is the only natural satellite of Earth. The moon orbits the Earth from 384,400 km and has an average speed of 3700 km per hour. It has a diameter of 3476 km, which is about that of the Earth and has a mass of 7.35e22 kg. The moon is the second brightest object in the sky after the sun. The gravitational forces between the Earth and the moon cause some interesting effects; tides are the most obvious. The moon has no atmosphere, but there is evidence by the United States Department of Defense Clementine spacecraft shows that there maybe water ice in some deep craters near the moon's North and South Pole that are permanently shaded. Most of the moon's surface is cove ...

  • The Moon - 1,390 words
    The Moon The Moon is the only natural satellite of Earth: orbit: 384,400 km from Earth diameter: 3476 km mass: 7.35e22 kg Called Luna by the Romans, Selene and Artemis by the Greeks, and many other names in other mythologies. The Moon, of course, has been known since prehistoric times. It is the second brightest object in the sky after the Sun. As the Moon orbits around the Earth once per month, the angle between the Earth, the Moon and the Sun changes; we see this as the cycle of the Moon's phases. The time between successive new moons is 29.5 days (709 hours), slightly different from the Moon's orbital period (measured against the stars) since the Earth moves a significant distance in its ...

  • Why We Have Seasons - 727 words
    Why We Have Seasons Why We Have Seasons Seasons are produced by the inclination of the earth's axis ofrotation, with the yearly revolution around the sun. During the earth'syearly revolution around the sun, the northern and southern hemispheresalternate their incline towards and away from the sun. This unequalheating of the earth's surface causes the weather to change inapproximately three-month periods. When the Northern Hemisphere isinclined toward the sun from about March 21st to September 23rd the earthssurface is heated causing the seasons of spring and summer to occur.Meanwhile in the Southern Hemisphere the effects of fall and winter occur.The first three months are the season of spri ...
