Seasons

...A season is a division of the year, marked by changes in weather, ecology, and hours of daylight. Seasons result from the yearly revolution of the Earth around the Sun and the tilt of the Earth's axis relative to the plane of revolution. The seasons result from the Earth's axis being tilted to its orbital plane; it deviates by an angle of approximately 23.4 degrees. Thus, at any given time during summer or winter, one part of the planet is more directly exposed to the rays of the Sun. This exposure alternates as the Earth revolves in its orbit. Therefore, at any given time, regardless of season, the northern and southern hemispheres experience opposite seasons. The effect of axis tilt is observable from the change in day length, and altitude of the Sun at noon (the culmination of the Sun), during a year. Summer: Summer is the warmest of the four temperate seasons. Summer is the warmest season of the year when the sun shines directly on one half of the world. Usually, July and August are the hottest months of the summer season. Crops, trees, and other plants reach their full maturity in summer. Summer is traditionally associated with hot dry weather, but this does not occur in all regions. Summer is one of the seasons of a year which is the warmest. It falls between the seasons of spring and autumn. Summer is generally known to be the season which has the hottest and longest days in a year. The summer nights are usually smaller than those of winter. It is a very good......

Lab 4.1: Using Linux Command-Line Basics

...Labs Lab 4.1: Using Linux Command-Line Basics What is the purpose? This lab demonstrates how to redirect data from a process and how to identify and kill a process. What are the steps? • Task 1: Redirecting and piping standard output Procedure 1. Obtain a list of files from the home directory, including the hidden files. Redirect the output to a file named Listing by using the ls -a > listing command. 2. Obtain a long list of files, including the hidden files, and append the output to the same file. 3. Use the cat listing | less command to view the file and pipe the output to less. 4. Use the cat command to view the file again. However, this time, pipe the output to lpr to print the file. 5. Redirect the output of ls to the special file /dev/null. What happens? It’s redirected to dev/null Why? It’s null. • Task 2: Putting tasks in the background and terminating the job Procedure 1. Use the tail –f command to view your listing file from the previous task. The –f option tells tail to follow changes; therefore, the file will continue to run this command until you cancel the command by pressing Ctrl+C. Put the file in the background using the tail -f listing & command. You may need to press Enter again to view the command prompt. 2. Put the process in the background and display the prompt again. Run the top command in the foreground. This will provide you a list of your top 20 processes by CPU usage. Put this list in the background and stop it by......

...In today's society fast food needs no introduction. Everyone from children to the elderly seem to be enjoying it every chance they get. And why not? It is convenient, delicious, and inexpensive. It has become a trend in our society. It is made part of everyday meals. But there is a black side of fast food also, which some peoples are not aware. Fast food is the worst enemy of human health. Fast food is not always the way to go, it can be the cause of obesity, heart disease, and is costly also. Fast food is extremely unhealthy. It contents lots of unhealthy ingredient such as high contents in sodium, salt and sugary can cause of diabetes, obesity, blood pressure and much more. Most dangerous affect of eating is obesity. When we buy McDonald meal of double cheeseburger and fries it contains one thousand calories in it and we need two thousand calories per day, which means we already consumes half day calories in half day in one meal, when we eat more than the required food then we gain weight, gaining weight starts with childhood. Children are addicted the fast food, because in morning breakfast, something out of freezer, because the parents do not have the time to cook. School has vending machine with full of candy, soda, and other junk food, such cookies, etc. when they come back from school, parents has pre-cook food sitting in freezers or others fast food. A typical children day is on PC and TV on top of this they eat junk food. How can be someone healthy after all this...

Lab 7 Security Basics

...Lab 7: Security Basics Task 1: Procedure 1. An example of hardware firewall is Belkin, and an example of software is Norton 360. Task 2: Procedure 1. Almost all anti-virus programs offer some sort of trial period for first-time users. McAfee is the only one that I know for sure offers free protection. 2. A Trojan Horse is an email virus usually released by an email attachment. If opened, it will scour your hard drive for any personal and financial information such as your social security, account, and PIN numbers. Once it has collected your info, it is sent to a thief’s database. A malicious email message is one which had been deliberately crafted to cause problems on the server or on the client. Drive- by downloads are downloads which a person authorized but without understanding the consequences (e.g. downloads which install an unknown or counterfeit executable program, ActiveX component, or Java applet). .Any download that happens without a person's knowledge, often a computer virus, spyware, malware, or crime ware. Task 3: Procedure 1. Full backup is a complete backup of everything you want to backup. Differential backup software looks at which files have changed since you last did a full backup. Then creates copies of all the files that are different from the ones in the full backup. Incremental backup software creates copies of all the files, or parts of files that have changed since previous backups of any type (full, differential or......

...OHM'S LAW EQUIPMENT: • • • • • • Ammeter (0-0.5 A) Voltmeter (0-10 V dc) Decade resistance box (0.1 to 100 Ω) Rheostat (200 Ω) Unknown resistance Battery (6 V) THEORY: The basic idea of an electrical CIRCUIT is that the power supply "pushes" electrical charges around the circuit similar to the way a pump pushes water in a fountain. The resulting flow of charges is called the CURRENT (I ≡ Δq/Δt). The power supply supplies potential energy to each of the charges that flow through it. We can measure this energy per charge with a voltmeter where we define VOLTAGE as the electrical potential energy per charge (V ≡ PE/q). Note in particular that the power supply (sometimes called the voltage supply) does NOT supply the current, it only supplies the energy to move the current, just as the water pump does not supply the flowing water, only the pressure to make the water flow. Just as in the water in a water fountain, the current must be allowed to leave the power supply and then eventually return to the power supply. Hence an electrical circuit starts at the (positive terminal of the) power supply and must eventually end at the (negative terminal of the) power supply - hence the name circuit. The individual circuit elements are connected in such a way that the current flows through them, usually giving up energy in the process. As the charges give up energy, the potential energy of the charges (and hence the voltage) will decrease as they traverse the circuit. OHM'S LAW states......

How to Coordinate Colors

...How to Coordinate Colors Three Parts:Knowing Your ColorsMatching ColorsUsing Fail-Safe Combinations Sometimes it can be difficult to know which colors you should wear with that green shirt or that blue skirt... but there are some definite rules that govern which colors look best with one another. Of course, once you know the rules you can break them, but it's good to get the basics down first. See step 1 to get starting coordinating your outfits by color. Part 1 of 3: Knowing Your Colors 1. ------------------------------------------------- ------------------------------------------------- 1 ------------------------------------------------- Use the color wheel. All the color wheel does is tell you how best to combine colors.There are particular color combinations in the color wheel that are particularly pleasing to the eye, called color harmonies. The basic primary colors of red, yellow, and blue are used to create the secondary colors. Tertiary colors are created by mixing primary and secondary colors together.[1] * There are warm colors and cool colors. Warm colors tend to be orange, red, yellow, etc. and cool colors are greens, blues, and purples. Mixing warm colors with warm colors and cool colors with cool colors can be a good way for a color coordination novice to get comfortable with the colors. * White, black, and grey are neutral colors (and are very important for properly coordinating clothing). * When a color is tinted that means......

... Typically when someone hears the word “conflict”, they are not associating it with good experiences. We usually hear that word and think of fights and arguments we have had in the past. Conflict does not have to be a bad thing. A good example of conflict not being a bad thing would be with child’s father and I. Both of us are passive-aggressive in nature. This means that neither one of us likes to bring up issues when we have a problem with people. Ordinarily for me what happens with other friends/partners is that I will hold in everything that I am thinking, then explode in a huge fight with the person and never speak again. This does not make for good friendships. My son’s father is the same way. Since have a child together, we are always trying to make sure that we are not fighting in front of our son. We have a relationship where both of us feel comfortable enough with the other person to call each other out on things we do not agree with. Since we both feel comfortable, we don’t actually have big fights. We are able to have out brief argument and move on with things. This allows neither of us to have to stress or build up anger. Priority is our child, and we do not have to waste time arguing over silly things. This is a positive example because it is showing how even if you are not dating the person you have a child with, you can still maintain a healthy family relationship. People so often think that conflict means that you are getting in a huge fight with the other...
