... ancient Egyptians, there were no plaques having as extensive information as in the pyramid. Of the few plaques that were in the daily life exhibit, they consisted of only the name of the object and the date that it was presumed to come from.

In front of him was a man holding a pitcher filled with some liquid. In between the men was a little description of the scene that said something to the extent of: 'the man kneeling is at a bar and has been drinking. He is drunk and is thirsty for m ...

- Asbestos - 346 words
ASBESTOS Asbestos-containing products were widely used in the construction of houses, apartments, offices and schools up to the 1970s. However, the presence of asbestos- containing products in the area in which you live, work, or go to school at is not necessarily a hazardous condition. It is only hazardous when asbestos-containing products break down and become airborne then a hazardous condition is created. In 1995, OSHA issued workplace standards for testing, maintenance and disclosure of asbestos. This caused a greater awareness of the danger for the dangers asbestos, especially in public places. This soon became more of a controversy than anything else, with some saying that asbestos wa ...

Chinas Space Program CHINA CITES 'GREAT PROGRESS' IN MANNED SPACE PROGRAM By Daniel Southerland (c) 1986, The Washington Post PEKING - China has made "great progress" in developing a manned space program and the day it launches a man in space for the first time is "not far off," an official newspaper said Sunday. The overseas edition of the People's Daily, the leading Communist Party newspaper, said China has "already begun the work of choosing its first team of astronauts." Although it gave few details, the article made it sound as though China is preparing to launch its first men into space much sooner than many foreign observers had thought possible. "We have already succeeded in producin ...

- Creationism - 1,390 words
Creationism Creationism is a religious metaphysical theory about the origin of the universe. It is not a scientific theory. Technically, creationism is not necessarily connected to any particular religion. It simply requires a belief in a Creator. Millions of Christians and non-Christians believe there is a Creator of the universe and that scientific theories such as the the theory of evolution do not conflict with belief in a Creator. However, fundamentalist Christians such as Ronald Reagan and Jerry Falwell, have co-opted the term 'creationism' and it is now difficult to refer to creationism without being understood as referring to fundamentalist Christians who (a) take the stories in Gene ...

Equine Protozoal Myeloencepalitis is a serious neurological disease in horses caused by a parasite protozoa thought to be sarcosystis neurona.

- Justice Can Not Be Served Until The Debate On Capital Punishment Is - 1,565 words
Justice can not be served until the debate on capital punishment is resolved and all states have come to agree that the death penalty is the best way to stop crime completely. The bottom line is, one method of execution is just as brutal and as barbaric as the next, says Mr. Breedlove of the National Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty. This comes straight from the mouth of a member of a national organization against capital punishment. The American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language, Third Edition defines execution as The act or an instance of putting to death or being put to death as a lawful penalty. So if Breedloves words hold true, then what he believes is that someone going ...

- Preserving And Preservatives - 754 words
Preserving And Preservatives Preserving is a means of storing, food both "raw" and cooked for a future date. When you preserve you are following centuries of an old tradition of "putting food by". In order to do this, you have to seal the food in an airtight container and process it in such a way that the four main spoliers- enymes, molds, yeast, and bacteria are removed and your food is safe to eat. Preservatives are something used to preserve food. Natural or chemical substances are added to food to inhibit spoilage; also, to protect food from decay or fermentation. Three things that will prevent the growth or slow down the growth of these spoilers: heat, cold and the use of acidity in the ...

- Preserving Flowers - 1,127 words
Preserving Flowers As evidenced by the discovery of preserved flowers in ancient Egyptian tombs, people have for centuries engaged in the art of preserving flowers. Today, a large variety of annuals, biennials and perennials are successfully preserved. Because properly dried flowers can persist for years after harvesting, they are often referred to as everlastings or immortelles. To ascertain the optimum growing conditions and harvesting time for a particular species, one should not rely solely on books or articles. Experienced growers will frequently be the best sources of information. In general, flowering plants require ample sunlight, good drainage and a growing season with a minimum of ...

The murders seemed as most usually are, sexually motivated. Jack the Ripper frustrated Scotland Yard, as they had little to no clues to the killer▓s identity. One thing that was obvious was that the killer was familiar with East End streets. At the time of the murders letters were sent to the police and media claiming to be that from the Ripper. One such letter was sent to George Lusk, attached was half a kidney, the writer said 'I send you half the kidney I took from one woman. The other piece I fried and ate'. The Ripper struck two t ...

- Slaughter House Five - 563 words
Slaughter House Five Billy Pilgrim is unstuck in time, and so is Slaughterhouse Five. Novel follows Billy's "unhinged" life. If I write every hop, skip, and jump, the summary would be as complicated as the book. These are the basic facts of Pilgrim's life; they are shown in chronological order (but are definitely not in the book): Billy Pilgrim is born in 1922 and grows up in Ilium, New York. He is a funny-looking youth, he does reasonably well in high school, enrolls in night classes at the Ilium School of Optometry, and is soon drafted into the army and the Second World War. He serves as a chaplain's assistant, then is thrown into the Battle of the Bulge, and almost immediately gets taken ...

... , building and agriculture were carried on effectively in Jonestown. Jones' young lieutenants were able to master intricate financial transactions and made public statements which seemed clear and honest. From superficial observation outsiders can believe that members of such a community are doing better than they did before when they may have felt confused or unhappy and demonstrated more overtly their unsure character. So investigators from the American State Department and the Embassy who went to Guyana believed the people at Jonestown were doing fine. They had become zombies, well functioning ones, but zombies nevertheless. They operated with, as Dostoyevsky said, a stable conception ...

... d the wind moaning and whistling by the elevator -- that's stack effect. In any tall building, the difference in temperature and air pressure between the outside and inside the structure pushes air up the stairwells and elevators, like smoke up a chimney. Strong, cold drafts blowing up the building create heating problems and make it difficult to open doors into stairwells. To control stack effect, buildings must be as airtight as possible, with ventilation ducts extending only part way up the building, and revolving doors at ground level. The one invention that, above all, has enabled buildings to climb higher is the elevator. As skyscraper populations have grown, elevator manufacturers ...
