Geology 1040

The two main books that were read and evaluated in this paper were first, “Adventures through Deep Time: The Central Mississippi River Valley and Its Earthquakes,” and second “Arkansas Review: A journal of Delta Studies.” Through looking and glancing at these two books, it explains the geologic structure of the Mississippi Valley and how Mississippi and Arkansas relate to it. It also discusses fault lines, and the earthquakes around the Mississippi and Arkansas regions. In the first book that I read, it started off reading the first chapter when it discusses the basics of the central Mississippi River Valley starting with the Precambrian time scale. During this period, North America was formed by different continents that were formed from the many tectonic plates over time. Most of the Precambrian rocks in the Mississippi Valley are metamorphic rocks. Before any of this, there was only one gigantic piece of land called Pangea. At that time all of the world’s continents were together, and over time the plates slowly shifted away from each other and eventually forming the different continents of what we know today. The only set back of the Precambrian time is that the rocks that were formed then now are buried deep within the soil and ground. It is very for geologist to study these rocks. The earth’s crust beneath the Mississippi Valley has a thickness of about 42 km. A later chapter that was very interesting was the chapter that discussed how Pangea ripped apart. When Pangea was tearing apart over time, it formed to what is to be called the Gulf of Mexico. There the water of the Mississippi River flows from as far as southern Canada, all the way into the Gulf of Mexico. Many types of sediment rocks poured into the Gulf of Mexico from many important streams that stretched all over Texas during the Paleocene period, through…...

...teachers found a internship at Svendborg Motorværksted for me. I was going to be working there for 2 weeks. When my internship was over the boss of Svendborg Motorværksted had been so impressed by me so he offered me a apprenticeship when my basic program was finished. So the 8/20 2010 started my apprenticeship at Svendborg Motorværksted. Svendborg Motorværksted is located in Tved and have about 20 employees and 5 apprentices. It was Ejvind Jensen (my boss) who started the company about 12 years ago. Before he started the company he worked for Petersen and Sørensen as work leader. We have 2 workshops our main workshop is in Tved and our other workshop is located on Fayard just outside of Munkebo. The reason why we have 2 workshops is because otherwise we wouldn’t have enough work for 25 high trained ship fitters so if we didn’t have the other workshop we would have to fire some employees. The different between the 2 workshops is that we had a smith workshop and a big hall with spare parts in Tved, while the workshop on Fayard is closer to the ships. Personally I enjoy0 being on Fayard mostly because I often have to work more and there is more working with engines than in Tved. We are an international company so we have a lot of customers from all over the world, that means we operate on a lot of different ships and different brands of engines. For example there is the MAN B&W brand, the Wartsila and the CAT. The MAN B&W specialize in big engines while CAT......

...selecting topic one, identify the audience, and provide a preliminary thesis statement. The topic I chose is “Should changes be made to the regulations for foods that are served in public schools”. My audience is everyone who has kids attending public schools. Meals served in school not all makes children in the USA overweight or obese but also makes them less involved in physical activities. The thesis statement for this is to improve the quality of meals keeping in mind nutrition standards that has been served in public schools. School meals should include fruits and vegetables foods rich in whole grains in their menu. • Explain the reason for selecting topic two, identify the audience, and provide a preliminary thesis statement. The second topic I chose is “Should children of parents who do not allow them to be vaccinated be allowed to attend public school". My audience is parents of children who are attending public schools. All vaccines are regulated by US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for safety and effectiveness. Children’s’ who are not vaccinated are prone to serious illness and can cause health risk to other children’s who are vaccinated. Therefore, children who are not vaccinated should not be allowed to attend the public school. The thesis statement for this is that vaccination is safe and prevents illness, including rubella, diphtheria, and whooping cough and all children’s should be vaccinated. • Explain the reason for selecting topic three,......

...International (India), which is a reputed global consultancy company in the field of hospitality industry. Some facts and figures on the operations of restaurants in India have been given in this study from a questionnaire response from FHRAI hotel and restaurant members. The statistical analysis in the report has used 165 such responses, which represents about 15% of the 1100 questionnaires which were sent to our restaurant members, both independent and in the hotels. Apart from this analysis, the researchers have also quoted some interesting demographic & economic data about the consumers in India and their expenses on the food services. We are all aware about the boom in the restaurant sector in India, particularly in the metro cities and other large cities. One anecdotal evidence suggests that about two new restaurants are opening in Delhi and Mumbai every week which makes it as 100 new restaurants in the year in these cities. These are in the organised sector, and a huge growth is simultaneously taking place in the unorganized and informal sector also. The Indian economy is on a high growth curve and experts believe that the economy can generate an average 8% growth in the GDP on a sustainable basis for the next few years. This is bound to result in high disposable incomes and higher consumer expenditure in the food service sector. The report also gives an insight on how to carry out valuation of restaurants and feasibility studies. It also gives average figures of......

...reactivity (high to low). The list is as follows: Potassium (most reactive), Sodium, Calcium, Magnesium, Aluminum, Zinc, Carbon, Iron, Tin, Hydrogen, Lead, Copper, Silver, Gold (least reactive). In our experiment, the Magnesium quickly produced bubbles when combined with the HCl and H3PO4. We concluded that this was a result of the mixture producing a lot of Hydrogen gas. Zinc should also have produced hydrogen gas when combined with the HCl and H3PO4. In both reactions bubbles were observed. However, if we refer to the ECS this reaction would not have occurred as quickly or vigorously as Magnesium. Copper should also produce hydrogen gas when reacted with HCl, H3PO4, and CH3COOH acids, however the Copper is less reactive than the other two metals. As a result in our experiment we did not see a reaction occur. It may be possible that if larger amounts of both the acid and the metals were utilized we may have been able to see a reaction. For this experiment we utilized very small amounts of acids and metals, which may have lead to the inability to notice any change in the solution. Effect of acid concentration on reaction rate In our experiment it is evident that by increasing the concentration of acid, more acid particles are available for collision, and therefore the reaction rate is faster. Although HCl is a stronger acid than CH3COOH, at a 3M solution (the highest concentration) both acids produced a visible reaction. This further proves that the......

...and students. We have proposed the term ‘ESD-schools’ as a new term which is different from the commonly used terms ‘eco-schools’ or ‘green schools’. By using a new term we want to stress that there are new challenges for schools that wish to engage in ESD-oriented development. ESD is not only dealing with aspects of people’s dependence on the quality of the environment and access to natural resources now and in the future, but also aspects of participation, self efficacy, equality and social justice are essential perspectives in preparing pupils for their engagement in sustainable development. However, experience and achievements derived from ‘eco-schools’, ‘green schools’ and from environmental education in general and from a number of other overarching pedagogical fields like peace education, health education, citizenship education and global education are highly relevant in this endeavour. There are moreover many examples that demonstrate that schools are addressing ESD without identifying it as such. In the present context, ESD-schools are schools that have chosen Education for Sustainable Development as a central part of their mission and their educational plan. They consider sustainable development as a main principle to keep in mind when planning the school’s daily life and long-term changes and development. Such schools are increasing in number and improving in quality internationally under different names. They are engaged in profound changes regarding the aims and......

...Demand, Supply and Price Determination Demand Demand is the quantity households are willing and able to purchase over a range of prices over a period of time. [‘Able’ means you must have the money to back up your desire, i.e. ‘effective’ demand.] Quantity demanded is the amount households are willing and able to purchase at a particular price over a period of time. [So Q. D’ed is a particular combination of Quantity & Price, whereas Demand covers all possible combinations.] This distinction is crucial!!! Assumptions:- 1. Specific time period. 2. Ceteris paribus. 3. Consumer rationality. Law of Demand: At higher prices a lower quantity will be demanded than at lower prices, other things being equal (ceteris paribus). This arises due to two separate effects: 1. Income Effect – the effect of a change in price on quantity demanded arising from the consumer becoming better or worse off as a result of the price change. 2. Substitution Effect – the effect of a change in price on quantity demanded arising from the consumer switching to or from alternative (substitute) products. Information on demand is usually presented as a schedule or more commonly a graph. A demand schedule is a table showing the different total quantities of a good that consumers are willing and able to buy at various prices over a given period of time. A demand curve is a graph showing the relationship between the price of a good and the quantity of the good......

...What is the economy's current stage in the business cycle? If I were to measure economy’s current stage in the business cycle based in information regarding the GDP, I would to say that some work has to be done but we are heading towards are a better stage in the business cycle. With a historic GDP rate of 3.2% the current rate of 3.1% shows a 0.1% decrease. This however, is a 1.3% increase from this year’s first quarters. This translates into economic growth during this period but it is still not as higher (economy is not as steady) as it has been historically. There may be several factor that are influenced by the aforementioned resulting in further support of the economy’s current in the business cycle. When looking at unemployment, though different news reports say that there are random decreases in the unemployment rate, it continues to be relatively lower than last year. Currently the unemployment rate is holding at 6.3%, a noticeable decrease from the 2013. Again, this is proof that though we are nowhere near where we should be, there are perceptible improvements and strides towards a better economic stage. The last key indicator is the CPI that is now 236.3, an increase from last year’s index of 231.5. This shows that consumers are now able to spend more (not much) on goods. If consumers are able to spend more, there is more disposable income, which means that more people are working. This can all be linked to an improving economy. Reference:......

...Corp. This is also something that is taught to us in Boot Camp and is practice all throughout our careers. “Wearing the uniform should be a matter of personal pride to all Marines. Marines will maintain their uniforms and equipment in a neat and serviceable condition and will, by appearance, set an example of neatness and strict conformity with these regulations.” ALMAR 299/97 and MARADMIN 322/05. We are taught that in Boot Camp how to take care of our uniforms, shaving in the morning, cleaning our living areas and other important things we do in our daily routines. How well we take of our uniforms and ourselves for that matter what shows other Marines what kind of Marine you are and the kind of Marine you want to be. Any Marine can be above reproach. If a Marine keeps his cammies clean, his rank isn’t crooked or chipped, has a clean shave like he is supposed to and has a haircut within regulations, then that Marine is above reproach. If anything you should have other Marines coming to you and complementing you on how sharp you look. And no Marine should be failing any uniform inspection if they are above reproach because of the fact that they have all of their uniforms cleaned, marked and fitted. This should be the mentality for all Marines across all ranks, but sadly it isn’t. And you can easily see the Marines that either don’t want to be above reproach, or try not to be above reproach. You’ll see them with low regulation haircuts, lose fitted or faded cammies, dirty boots......

...accounting techniques can be included in the Accounting Standards. Since the constituency support is necessary then it does affect the neutrality of the members of the Financial Accounting Standards Board cannot remain neutral and objective to the approaches that have been presented to the Board, they have to rely on the constituency support to make it part of the Financial Accounting Standards and create the procedure for uniform use of the accepted accounting approach. The representational faithfulness of the approach is also affected as the Financial Accounting Standards Board is not the only entity that can decide, the consensus has to be built within the constituents, the Board members the business entities and also with the other organizations that represent the financial accounting standards in different capacities. Some of the organizations with which the Financial Accounting Standards Board has to build a consensus are: The American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, The Governmental Standards Accounting Board, The Securities & Exchange Commission, the American Accounting Association, The Financial Executives Institute and the Institute of management Accountants.

...terms of sustainability criteria, namely efficiency, equity and environment. 1. INTRODUCTION While the economic benefits of global trade are enormous, the potential for differences in local and national perspectives when developing gateways and corridors are no less significant. Global logistics which connects widely dispersed producers and consumers are increasingly organized through gateways and corridors located in urban regions. These “system(s) of marine, road, rail and air transportation infrastructure of national significance for international commerce” (Canada, 2007) seek out urban locations precisely because of the accessibility and agglomeration advantages they confer. Yet, gateways find themselves in constant tension with the other inhabitants of the city-regions that host them. This is particularly true in the case of seaport gateways, which are the focus of this paper. It is not only that waterfront land is scarce, desirable and highly regulated; seaport gateways are increasingly infrastructurally, economically and institutionally disconnected from the city-regions that host them. This disconnection raises a series of dilemmas for the host localities. This paper presents a conceptual framework for understanding the dilemmas that confront cities and regions that host national and continental logistics gateways. The framework is illustrated with examples from several GLOBAL LOGISTICS AND LOCAL DILEMMAS seaport gateways and their associated city-regions,......
