As an avid shore fisherman who enjoys fishing, I have the unique opportunity to choose between two similar, but two very different, types of fishing. These two types of fishing are fresh water fishing and salt water fishing. With that being said, in the state where I reside, there are two distinct attitudes towards fishing. There are those anglers who prefer fresh water fishing, and there are those anglers who prefer salt water fishing. Both types of fishing ultimately deal with utilizing a fishing pole, fishing line and bait (or a fishing lure) to catch fish. However, in the same way they are similar; in contrast, they are both very much different. In a fresh water lake, the water rises with the amount of rainfall and falls due to evaporation and drainage; on the other hand, ocean the water rises and falls with the lunar tide. Unlike fresh water fishing, where an angler would use “lighter” fishing tackle due to catching smaller fish, salt water fishing requires much “heavier” tackle due to the vast difference in size from fresh water fish to salt water fish. For instance, the State record for a fresh water largemouth bass caught in a lake is 10 pounds 14 ounces; whereas, a Great White shark can weigh more then a car! So as you can see, although fresh water fishing and salt water fishing are similar, in some ways, they are very much different.

Salt Water Assignment

...Chemistry Assignment: Boiling Water Mrs. Goodyer Due Date: 21 July, 2006 Ben Graham Aim: To observe whether salt levels in water will alter boiling temperatures and times. Hypothesis: I hypothesise that adding salt to the water will raise the boiling temperature of water and lessen the time it takes to boil. This hypothesis is due to the ebullioscopic constant of water and the high heat capacity of water and low heat capacity of salt. Equipment: Beaker or saucepan Bunsen burner or hotplate Thermometer 45 grams of salt Stopwatch or timer Method: A saucepan was filled with 100ml of water. Its temperature was observed and recorded before the saucepan was placed on the hotplate. The timer was started as soon as it touched the hotplate. The thermometer was held in the water, not being allowed to touch the bottom of the saucepan. Every 30 seconds, a reading was recorded from the thermometer. Once the reading had been the same for one and a half minutes, the experiment was stopped. The experiment was repeated 4 times in total. The experiment was then repeated, but 15 grams of salt was added before heating started. Again, it was repeated, but with 30 grams of salt. The recorded results were then categorised, organised and displayed in appropriate......

...of all ages, around the world shop for fun and things they need. Nowadays shopping can be done online, by phone, or traditional shopping in a store. In life, we are always looking for ways to save money and make things go by faster. If you compare traditional shopping and online shopping, you could indeed save yourself time and money. There will always be things you will have to drive to the store for but a large amount of things can now be bought online. If you wish to do traditional shopping then you might need to drive five to 15 minutes to the closest store. In more extreme scenarios maybe up to an hour or more. With the high prices of gas and diesel, it can be very expensive to drive to a store every time you need or want to buy something. Being that you need to travel to your shopping destination, you will need to pay for some sort of travel fee. That fee would be for gas or diesel for your or a friend’s automobile, taxi fares, or bus fares. In my personal experience, I had to drive 40 minutes to town for shopping. It was expensive and very inconvenient to drive that far every time we needed or wanted to buy something. If there was an emergency, such a water pipe for the house breaking, then it would be a real problem. Even if a water pipe did break, it would still be faster to drive 40 minutes to the store rather than buy it online. We needed to drive that distance for groceries but items such as shoes and clothes were bought online. With online shopping, you can......

...Critical Thinking: Compare and Contrast Latrenda Suggs RSC 801, Section L11 Professor Barker Capitol College Abstract The constructs of this paper will compare and contrast the various definitions of critical thinking. Many of the scholarly articles that I have researched for this paper provide insight of various reasoning as to the ideas of what critical thinking means. Although the wording is very different for each definition they seem to overlap each of in a sense. Some of the researchers of these articles read as though they took a deeper reflection of what critical thinking means. Critical thinking is very important for people all of ages. Critical thinking is detrimental to a student’s success. Introduction Critical thinking is essential for students and people in everyday life. Critical thinking skills are what characterizes’ the way a person thinks and learn. Critical thinking is where ideas are formed. Many researchers interpret critical thinking in different ways. Critical thinking can be used in every field such as engineering, teaching, nursing and business. Some people don’t understand truly what critical thinking mean and how to access their full potential. In 2007 a study was conducted by the National Center for Education Statistics which reveals that the United States was behind the curve on critical thinking. Critical thinking methods aren’t being applied in schools as they should be. Students lack problem solving skills which lead to problems......

...Compare and Contrast: Sister Flowers versus I Want a Wife Lisa Jackson ENG 121: English Composition I Instructor: Alicia Giffin December 9, 2013 When given the task of comparing two different essays, I read through the list before deciding on Sister Flowers by Maya Angelou and I Want a Wife by Judy Brady. I found both essays to be well-written and each touched me on an emotional level. However, I found the essay Sister Flowers to be the better essay because of the descriptive nature and that it has a deeper meaning by showing how the kindness of one person can make one feel liked and respected, while the essay I Want a Wife was written more for entertainment by showing how little men do and how much women take care of. The essay Sister Flowers is about a little girl named Marguerite who, in the beginning of the essay, compared herself to “an old biscuit, dirty and inedible” (Angelou, M.) until she met Mrs. Bertha Flowers. Marguerite looked up to Mrs. Flowers whom she referred to as graceful, and one of the few gentlewomen she had known. Marguerite states “She was our side’s answer to the richest white woman in town” (Angelou, M.). Marguerite’s reverence of Mrs. Flowers made her ashamed of how uneducated her grandmother appeared. One day Mrs. Flowers invited Marguerite into her house so she could have a talk with her. The fact that she cared enough to invite Marguerite into her house, make cookies for her, and then give her a book to read made Marguerite feel liked and......

...Compare-Contrast Essay The thought of doing an essay for most people can at be quite intimidating because of the need to be technically proficient, following the mandatory expectations outlined and some might find them boring because they feel like it is too restrictive in nature. That is merely just a common misconception though, there are several different styles of essays and the two that are going to be discussed are descriptive and narrative essays. The narrative essay's main purpose is to tell a story using characters and a plot, where perhaps a problem is given, and the events that unfold eventually explain a solution to the problem or issue presented. In contrast the descriptive essay can be very powerful in the fact it is written using the five senses (visual, audible, taste, tactile sensations and smells) this allows the author to bring a scene or object to life in the mind of the reader. While narrative essays are almost like a movie that is played out in the judgment of the reader, the descriptive essay paints a vivid photograph or place the reader can experience and this is why descriptive essays are the superior of the two styles. One of the best qualities that narrative essays are able to offer over descriptive essays is they are structured to appeal to the simplest of mankind's urge to share a good story. There are various forms in which we can find a narrative writing example such as a poem, play, novel and the obvious essay. There are times...

...Compare and Contrast Essay The 1971 Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory and 2005 Charlie and the Chocolate Factory were similar and different in many ways in terms of the characters, relation to one another, events and plot impacts, and the scenery. It is no surprise that there would have some similarities but more differences in the movie being that they were made 34 years apart. The characters, plot, scenery, and movie production can all attribute the changes in the film. There will be more weight on the differences than the similarities in both these films. In both films, Willy Wonka is without a doubt eccentric chocolatier who is seeking someone to take control of his chocolate factory. Willy Wonka maintains his nonchalant way when interacting with the children in both movies. The four children that were out of running for the major prize because of their greedy or careless actions were punished by the outcome of their actions and surprisingly when asked if the children will be alright Wonka answered without a care in the world. Wonka in both films maintained his eagerness to get through the tour. The films were focused on Wonka but 1971 film lacked one very important thing the 2005 did have and that was attention on his childhood. The 2005 film had several flashbacks about Wonka’s childhood which gave a better perspective on his character and why he acts the way he does. The1971 film just simply states that Willy Wonka is one of the best chocolatiers in the......

The Buoyancy of Salt Water

...Q. Ogleby The Buoyancy of Salt Walter Introduction: Those who have swam in the ocean water can related to the difference in fresh and salt water. Children visit the beach often and will relate to the difference of the water in a pool and beach water. Besides the difference in taste we will explore the buoyancy force of salt water, which allows things to float with greater ease than is possible in fresh or pool water. Children will also learn that ships also are known to ride higher in salt water than in fresh water. The buoyant force of salt water can be demonstrated in the classroom using tap water to which table salt has been added. Learning Objectives: As a result of the demonstration lesson, students should * Understand the concept of density. * Develop an awareness of relative density as it relates to an object and the water in which it is placed. * Relate the demonstration to other situations that illustrate relative density like ships at sea. * Explain the floating and/or sinking of an object in water in terms of key works: density, buoyancy, and relative density. Materials Required: 1. 2 drinking glasses 2. tap water 3. table salt 4. 2 fresh eggs Presentation: 1. Obtain two identical drinking glasses and distinguish them by marking: S for saltwater and F for fresh water. 2. Pour tap water into the glasses until each is two-thirds full. 3. Add two tablespoons of table salt to the water in “S” and allow it to......

...Amanda Church Compare and contrast draft Professor Elizabeth Parks English 121 May 19, 2014 I. Introduction- The Narrative, “This Old House: The Heart is a Lonely Menagerie” leaves more to the readers imagination than the Descriptive essay, “Once More to the Lake”. II. First Difference: Specific word usage and paragraphs A. The narrative has dialogue and uses action to get the reader’s attention. The paragraphs can be short even one word, depending on if the writer is showing a conversation between two or more people. For example in the Narrative, “This Old House: The Heart is a Lonely Menagerie”, David has multiple conversations with people throughout the essay giving you an idea of what is actually taking place and helping to put you into the situation. B. Descriptive essays normally have longer paragraphs which include a lot of detail. These types of essays also require carefully chosen words so that the reader can visualize what the writer is intending to say. For example in “Once More to the Lake” He makes it a point to tell you every detail you could possibly imagine about the lake. III. Second Difference: The Structure of the essay A. A narrative should have a plot, setting and characters. It should also cover all important events. In the Narrative the plot is about how David wants the little things in life to be of importance and not have to worry about all the hub bub of showing off your belongings. He wants to relax and lead a simple......

...Jubin John Ms. Diomande Compare & Contrast Final Draft 10/22/14 Creation vs. Evolution Today many scientists would have to believe that evolution is the only reasonable explanation of the universe. Scientists, like Stephen Hawking, claim that they proved that evolution is the only correct answer to the origins of life and the universe, yet evolution  is a theory proposed by scientists to explain the origin of all species. Evolution is not the only answer but in fact, the creation theory is based on the bible and that God created the universe. This is the idea of creationism which is supported by religion. Creationism offers a more credited answer to the development of the universe than the evolutionary theory because creation has the support of the bible. To make a decision on which theory is more appealing to them, people must choose either religion or science. The creation theory is solely based on the bible. The Bible, in fact, is actually one of the most proven books in history. Creationism is the theory that God created the universe and it's creatures in six days. For example, in Genesis 2:7 it states "In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form and void, and darkness was over the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters". The Bible is not considered a science book, but many consider it to be scientifically correct. For instance, the Old Testament is quoted in several......

Unfortunately, the cost of the technology to convert the saltwater will cost far the government huge allocations. Though this is said to be extremely economical, it has not yet been approved as practical to be used in everyday life.

Fresh Water Ecosystem

...Winter 2003 Sustaining Healthy Freshwater Ecosystems SUMMARY Fresh water is vital to human life and economic well-being, and societies extract vast quantities of water from rivers, lakes, wetlands, and underground aquifers to supply the requirements of cities, farms, and industries. Our need for fresh water has long caused us to overlook equally vital benefits of water that remains in stream to sustain healthy aquatic ecosystems. There is growing recognition, however, that functionally intact and biologically complex freshwater ecosystems provide many economically valuable commodities and services to society. These services include flood control, transportation, recreation, purification of human and industrial wastes, habitat for plants and animals, and production of fish and other foods and marketable goods. Over the long term, intact ecosystems are more likely to retain the adaptive capacity to sustain production of these goods and services in the face of future environmental disruptions such as climate change. These ecosystem benefits are costly and often impossible to replace when aquatic systems are degraded. For this reason, deliberations about water allocation should always include provisions for maintaining the integrity of freshwater ecosystems. Scientific evidence indicates that aquatic ecosystems can be protected or restored by recognizing the following: • Rivers, lakes, wetlands, and their connecting ground waters are literally the “sinks” into which......

Feasibility of Two Fresh Water Supply Techniques in Sudan

...FEASIBILITY OF TWO FRESH WATER SUPPLY TECHNIQUES IN SUDAN 1.0 INTRODUCTION Access to clean water is considered a basic human right and in many countries when sustainable development is considered, water is at the top of the list of priorities (Omer, 2008). The value of water is increasingly felt in areas such as Sudan, where precipitation is inadequate while temperatures are high resulting in dry or arid conditions (Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO), cited in USAID, 2010). Two-thirds of the country is arid and rainfall is less than 400mm annually. Regardless of the fact that about 60% of Sudan lies within the Nile basin, it only draws 18.5x109 m3 from the Nile’s annual flow of 84x109m3 and added to its internal supply of 12x109m3, the water availability falls considerably below the water stress limit of 1000m3 per head (ibid). According to FAO, (cited in USAID, 2010), in Sudan the renewable water resource per capita at 2008 stood at 726m3/person/year and is projected to be 617m3/person/year in 2015. It is low and rapidly dropping every year (ibid) and unless measures are taken, many citizens will be living without a basic human right. Since Sudan cannot rely on rainfall which is sporadic and concentrated in 4 months for most areas (Omer, 2008), water management techniques need to be implemented to ensure availability of potable water. Sudan is bordered by the Red Sea to the east which makes desalination a viable option but the cost implications and......

...Compare and contrast three different types of thinking and comment on how each effects the critical thinking process Logical Creative Optimistic Creative and logical-- Critical thinking and decision making is the process to find the truth. An important aspect of thinking is the process that relies on the ability to coordinate and structure our ideas so that they make sense. Training our mind to use the critical thinking process gives people a better understanding of the information. This paper will discuss the three different thinking styles. It will also compare and contrast logical style, persuasive style, and creative style. Critical thinking will be applied to the decision making process by using work environment examples. The logical style of thinking is a complex process in which reasoning is used to come to a conclusion. This style involves a sequence of steps or thoughts used to solve a problem. According to Kirby and Goodpaster (2007), along with creative thought, inductive and deductive logic comprise the bedrock and substance of all our thinking. Using the two major elements of logical thinking, deductive and inductive reasoning, solutions can be tested with tried and true methods. This style is very distinct and follows a more structured and analytical path using proven methods in order to reach the conclusions. When comparing logical thinking to the creative and persuasive styles of thinking, all three require detailed processes to reach conclusions.......
