• Buddhism And Ecology Holism Barnhill Deep
    318 words
    If there was ever a culture that truly cared for the Earth, it was that of Buddhism. Buddhism itself is often known for commitment to World ecology. This is explored in the essay, Relational Holism, by David Landis Barnhill, in the book, Deep Ecology and World Religions. The subject of holism is brought to us many times and often acknowledgement of critical views is used to help convey the information. Beginning with a strong statement by Barnhill, "Critics of deep ecology have often attacked it...

    Mars Climate Orbiter successfully blasted off a Kennedy Space Center launch pad for a 9-month journey to the Red Planet on Friday, December 11, 1998. The spacecraft will arrive in martian orbit in September 1999, where it will serve as a weather satellite for a full martian year (two full Earth years). The next Mars lander is scheduled for January 3, 1999 liftoff. Mars Polar will touch down on Mars in December 1999, carrying two softball-size penetrators, the Deep Space 2 mission, that will cras...
  • Citizen Kane Deep Focus
    375 words
    Citizen Kane was narrated by more than one person. The story of Kane's life unfolds in overlapping segments that add more information as each narrator adds their story. The entire story was told in flashbacks. Each narrator had different opinions of Kane, so the viewer gets to see Kane from many different perspectives. Because the narrators are telling their stories at an older age they are sometimes unreliable and often contradictory. Also, the stories are told out of sequence and sometimes ov...

    Mechanisms of Epiboly of ectoderm in the Xenopus Laevis embryo Introduction Epiboly is a movement of gastrulation in the amphibian embryo, whereby ectoderm al precursors expand to cover the entire embryo. This process occurs in the surface and deep layer cells in the animal and marginal regions. Three rounds of cell division occur in the deep cells, while they also rearrange to form fewer layers. Superficial cells elongate by cell division while flattening, which gives them greater surface area ...

    Deep Ecology/Ecosophy The ideas behind deep ecology have major implications today. They allow people to think more profoundly about the environment and possibly come to a better understanding of their own meaning. People are intensely concerned about the worlds technological adolescence, massive consumerism, and overpopulation. A man named Arne Naess, former head of the philosophy department at the University of Oslo founded an idea that can direct peoples anxiety away from their "shallow" notio...

  • Deep Water Ocean North Atlantic
    643 words
    Cold water discovered in the subtropical Atlantic was brought there by a current which had originated in the polar region; temperature measurements in the real ocean and computer models show there is a southward outflow of cold deep water from the Arctic throughout the Atlantic. This cold water is replaced by warm surface waters, which gradually give off their heat to the atmosphere as they flow northward towards Europe. This acts as a massive heating system for all the land downwind. The heat r...

    The idea of sharing media files over the Internet has become a controversial subject as of late. While file sharing applications such as Napster are currently under fire from the US government and from Music Recording companies, one would think that no one would try to mimic Napster's technology. Johnny Deep, a computer consultant in Troy, New York, has been hailed as the creator of "The Next Napster." Deep is the mind behind "Aimster", named after his daughter, Aimee. Aimster piggybacks the com...

    Skiboarding is one of the newest snow sports hitting the slopes. It puts everything that is good from skiing, snowboarding and inline skating into a nice small package that will fit in the trunk of any car. Skiboards are small twin-tipped (the tip is the exact same shape as the tail) snowboards between 60-99 cm long, with ski boot bindings, and you have one for each foot. Many people who have skied or snowboarded before love the skiboards because they are so much fun. The learning curve for ski...

    Justin BardowskiCollege Credit English December 19, 2001 Death of a Salesman; Movie vs. Book Death of a Salesman was both a great movie to watch and a great book to read. There were small differences, and since they are just about word for word from one another, the differences were usually just differences in the way one interpreted the book and envisioned the characters. The major difference I noticed was the way I pictured Linda and the way she was portrayed in the movie. Linda was not at all...
  • Ocean Deep Species Sea Bottom

    Snelgrave and Grass le in The Deep Sea: Desert and Rainforest published in Oceanus, volume 38 in 1995 argue that the popular belief that the deep sea is little more than an ocean desert is a pure fallacy. Contrary to such thinking a multitude of benthic organisms dwell on the ocean bottom; despite the frigid temperatures and high pressure, a large heterogeneity of creatures, rivaling in variety and number those inhabiting tropical rainforests, thrive in this environment. The analogy of the ocean...
  • Diving Animal Oxygen Myoglobin Lungs
    508 words
    When a diver dives deep for a period of time, breathing regular compressed air, a certain amount on nitrogen will be dissolved in the blood. If the diver comes back up to the reduced pressure of the surface too quickly, small bubbles of nitrogen will form in the blood stream. This is called "the bends" and requires the person to spend some time in a decompression chamber to gradually reduce the pressure and allow the nitrogen to escape the body. Some animals goes down much deeper then we do, so ...

    Five different external K+ concentrations ranging from 5. 4 mM to 60 mM were used to bathe the crayfish preparation. Membrane potential was recorded from the fibres in two muscle groups in the crayfish abdomen -the medial deep extensors and the lateral deep extensors. The solution containing 5. 4 mM K+ was standard crayfish saline (van Harreveld's solution). Resting membrane potentials of the two muscle groups in van Harreveld's solution were -64. 50 +/- 6. 364 mV in the lateral deep extensors ...

  • An Exciting Season Winter

    Winter is my favorite season for a variety of reasons. First, I love when snowdrifts pile up high and deep. Second, when it does snow, I can make snowmen; build forts, and bomb people with snowballs. In winter, I hear Christmas caroling and jingle bells ringing. When the snow drifts up high and deep, school will be canceled and I will have more time to play. Also, my mom will enjoy it more because she can be at home and not work because of the drifts. Also, in the winter I hear Christmas caroli...
