...Great Barrier Reef loses half its coral in less than 30 years The Great Barrier Reef has lost half of its coral cover in the last 27 years, according to a new study released today in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS). Based on over 2,000 surveys from 1985 to this year the study links the alarming loss to three impacts: tropical cyclone damage, outbreaks crown-of-thorns starfish that devour corals, and coral bleaching. "We can't stop the storms, and ocean warming (the primary cause of coral bleaching) is one of the critical impacts of the global climate change. However, we can act to reduce the impact of crown of thorns," says John Gunn, the head of the Australian Institute of Marine Science (AIMS), which conducted the research. Crown-of-thorns starfish (Acanthaster planci), the world's second largest seastar and a renowned predator of coral, have seen several outbreaks in the Great Barrier Reef during the past few decades. Outbreaks of the coral-chomping invertebrates are believed to have increased from one every 50-80 years to one every 15 years, which scientists have linked in part to fertilizer and chemical runoff from the mainland. In total, the researchers found that 42 percent of coral loss could be linked the crown-of-thorns outbreaks, 48 percent to tropical cyclones, and 10 percent to coral bleaching. The annual loss of coral cover has sped up as well, averaging 1.45 percent annually since 2006. This pummeling, occurring too quickly......

...is a centerpiece of President Barack Obama's plans to reduce the pollution linked to global warming, a step that the administration hopes will get other countries to act when negotiations on a new international treaty resume next year. Despite concluding in 2009 that greenhouse gases endanger human health and welfare, a finding that triggered their regulation under the 1970 Clean Air Act, it has taken years for the administration to take on the nation's fleet of power plants. In December 2010, the Obama administration announced a "modest pace" for setting greenhouse gas standards for power plants, setting a May 2012 deadline. Obama put them on the fast track last summer when he announced his climate action plan and a renewed commitment to climate change after the issue went dormant during his re-election campaign. "The purpose of this rule is to really close the loophole on carbon pollution, reduce emissions as we've done with lead, arsenic and mercury and improve the health of the American people and unleash a new economic opportunity," said Frances Beinecke, president of the Natural Resources Defense Council, which has drafted a plan that informed the EPA proposal. Yet the rule carries significant political and legal risks, by further diminishing coal's role in producing U.S. electricity and offering options for pollution reductions far afield from the power plant, such as increased efficiency. Once the dominant source of energy in the U.S., coal now supplies just under......

...THE INJUSTICE DONE MY MOTHER by José Rizal   Some days after my return to Kalamba, my parents decided that I should remain, and that later I should go to Manila. I wanted to study with a teacher of the town, even though I could learn no more than multiplication, so I entered the village school.    At this time, an uncle of mine, Don José Alberto, returned from Europe. He found that, during his absence, his wife had left his home and abandoned her children. The poor man anxiously sought his wife and, at my mother's earnest request, he took her back. They went to live in Biñan. Only a few days later the ungrateful woman plotted with a Guardia Civil officer who was a friend of ours. She accused her husband of poisoning her and charged that my mother was an accomplice. On this charge, the alcalde sent my mother to prison.    I do not like to tell of the deep grief which we all, nine sisters and brothers, felt. Our mother's arrest, we knew, was unjust. The men who arrested her pretended to be friends and had often been our guests. Ever since then, child though I was, I have distrusted friendship. We learned later that our mother, away from us all and along in years, was ill. From the first, the alcalde believed the accusation. He was unfair in every way and treated my mother rudely, even brutally. Finally, he persuaded her to confess to what they wised by promising to set her free and to let her see her children. What mother could resist that? What mother would not......

...may never have a chance to express themselves. It also let employers know you value their opinions. By helping the employers understand that the business needs and values them is important for building a strong working relationship. Employees should be involved in most decision making but some are better left to management. I knew of a guy that worked at a previous job. He was at that job for over 5 years. He knew how to work and run every department. An assistant position came available and everyone thought he would be perfect for the position, because he had more knowledge of the different areas and he was great at his job. He always wore a smile and greeting everyone. The customers loved him. He interviewed for the position, but he didn’t get it, because of sex-based discrimination. He was gay, but I don’t agree that he should have not got the position due to his sexual belief. A girl out of another department got the job and had to do a full 2 weeks of training and still was slow catching on. She eventually got fired and he quit. If I was manager, I would have given him the position....

...the shop and stated that he would like to purchase the golf clubs the contract had not been formed, because the shopkeeper is well within his rights to refuse the customer, even though the shopkeeper had the product in the window for purchase. This would not be the case if the product in the window had been labelled as an offer, in which case the customer could then enter the shop and agree to the offer. So, the golf clubs in the window was merely a willingness to negotiate. The same can be said for the legal case Pharmaceutical Society of Great Britain vs Boots the Chemists (1952). This is a case where determining the point of the “sale” was crucial. In this case it was determined that the goods on display within the pharmacy were a willingness to negotiate and not an offer, and there was only acceptance when the customer took the product to the register to pay and the pharmacist then agreed to sell that product to the customer. Because of laws that require listed poisons to be supervised by a registered pharmacist, that sale could be refused at the pharmacist’s discretion. 2. a) A restrictive covenant is something that can prohibit certain actions should a person want to withdraw from an agreement. And it must be considered to be reasonable in order for it to be up held in court. In the case of Tom and ABC Motors it has stated in his contract that he cannot work for any other car company for 5 years. The courts would rule that this is unfair because it is too broad of a...

Alexander the Great and His Battles

...Rhett Deverich D block, History Alford 24 February 2014 Battles of Alexander the Great The Battle of Granicus River, the goal was simple, defeat King Darius III and conquer the vast Persian empire. Alexander crossed at Hellespont and traveled along the mountain ranges in May of 334 B.C.E. While he and his men were at Troy. The Persians planned a meeting to have a discussion on how to defeat him and where to start. They decided to trap the oncoming army at the river of Granicus. (Granicus was roughly sixty feet wide with both a fast current and steep banks) With the Persians at about 10,000 cavalry and 5,000 mercenary facing Alexanders 13,000 calvary and 5,000 mercenary, we would think the battle would last for a while but it only lasted about an hour. The interesting tactic that the Persians used (which might has cost them this battle) was how they aligned their cavalry. They positioned their cavalry at the banks of the river, while the Greek mercenary infantry was right behind them. They could move neither forward or backward to escape this battle. The other part of Alexander's army was on the other side of the river, they plunged into the treacherous river and swam across; when they got out, they faced hand to hand combat with the Persians. The Persians, then retreated, although; this would not be the last of them. Alexander would soon see Darius again at the Battle of Issus. Battle plan of Granicus The Battle of Issus November 5th of 333 B.C.E, was the...

... Successes of the First Great Awakening In the 1730’s and 1740’s the British American Colonies embarked on a revitalized religious piety called “The Great Awakening” which had a plethora of positive effects that strengthened the colonies at that present time and has remnants today in modern day America. Two extremely brilliant pastors by the names of Jonathan Edwards and George Whitefield operating as separate entities led a mission through British America exhorting colonists to repent of sins! “As The Great Awakening” begins to ignite, these two pastors will have made footprints in America that will shape the way of Christianity forever. Jonathan Edwards was known for having one of the deepest theological minds ever. He proclaimed a burning desire for righteousness, and depending whole heartedly on God’s saving and loving grace. Preaching boldly with much conviction! On the contrary George Whitefield was effective! But, had a different preaching style. Four years into “The Great Awakening” English parson George Whitefield appeared on the scene, he was a great orator, spiritually led his voice boomed and was able to reach the masses. How did these two pastors Jonathan Edwards and George Whitefield effect America? What evolved from “The Great Awakening?” We are going to dissect “The Great Awakening” by following events that led to spiritual success for British America after returning to a sound walk with God. Additionally, we will......

...Accuracy Some wooden rulers do not start with 0 at the edge, but have it set in a few millimeters. How could this improve the accuracy of the ruler? As the edge of the ruler gets worn away over time, the first millimeter or two of the scale would also be worn away if the scale started at the edge. 19. Tools You find a micrometer (a tool used to measure objects to the nearest 0.01 mm) that has been badly bent. How would it compare to a new, high-quality meterstick in terms of its precision? Its accuracy? It would be more precise but less accurate. 20. Parallax Does parallax affect the precision of a measurement that you make? Explain. 21. Error Your friend tells you that his height is 182 cm. In your own words, explain the range of heights implied by this statement. His height would be between 181.5 and 182.5 cm. Precision of a measurement is one-half the smallest division on the instrument. The height 182 cm would range Ϯ 0.5 cm. 22. Precision A box has a length of 18.1 cm and a width of 19.2 cm, and it is 20.3 cm tall. a. What is its volume? 23. Critical Thinking Your friend states in a report that the average time required to circle a 1.5-mi track was 65.414 s. This was measured by timing 7 laps using a clock with a precision of 0.1 s. How much confidence do you have in the results of the report? Explain. A result can never be more precise than the least precise measurement. The calculated average lap time exceeds the precision......
