Volcanoes - 1,427 words
... locked into the melted minerals. If volcanic rocks erupt on the earth's crust, such as the Andean volcanoes, then magma can interact with carbonate rocks such as chalk as it travels up through the mantle or lower crust, picking up carbon dioxide on the way. In subduction zones, where the ocean floor goes down into the mantle some carbonate rocks do get taken down and melted, recycling their carbon dioxide content, but this is a minor source compared with the mantle. Carbon is quite common deep in the earth, found either as the element itself (graphite or diamond under very high pressures), or as carbon dioxide. None of the common minerals in magmatic rock contains carbon, so when magma ...

Vegetarianism - 931 words
Nothing will benefit human health and increase the chances for survival of life on Earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet. Albert Einstein Vegetarianism is the practice of not eating meat or some animal products, depending on the degree of vegetarianism. There are various types of vegetarianism, each with its own benefits, but also its own difficulties. The first of the three main types, and most common, is Ovo-lacto. Ovo-lacto vegetarians eat no meat (red meat, poultry, or seafood), but do eat eggs and dairy products. The second type is Lacto. Lacto vegetarians do not eat meat or eggs, but do eat dairy products.

Vietnam - 773 words
American intervention in Vietnam began with a generation of boys born to the veterans of the second World War. Boys who lived in the afterglow and dreamed of the glory. Patriotism was thick in a country who came out of the second great war stronger than it had entered. We were unbeatable. America had survived to continue its fight against injustice and for liberty. The new fight was against communism. The war might never have taken place had the United States aided Ho Chi Minh in the fight to liberate Vietnam from the French, a fight the Americans had experienced themselves not all that long ago. In light of France being an ally the United Stated did not see their way clear to assist a colon ...

Vietnam Post 1950 - 1,369 words
Describe and assess the role of the USA in Indo-China in the period 1945-1954 In 1943 President Roosevelt suggested that Indochina come under the control of four powers after the war, proposing that the eventual independence of the Indochinese might follow in twenty to thirty years time. No one knew whether the policy would require American troops, but America was firm on the fact that independence could not be taken by the Vietnamese, but would be granted to the Vietnamese by the Great Powers at their convenience. At the Yalta conference Roosevelt repeated his desire for a trusteeship but during March 1945 he considered the possibility of French restoration in return for their promise that ...

Viral Infections - 849 words
It all started with a little tickling in my throat. I forged ahead, knowing all too well what that feeling meant, I was getting sick. I convinced myself to just not think about it and it would just go away. This whole time there was an army of alien species amassing in my bloodstream and older cells. They are horrifyingly ugly, like something straight out of H. R. Geigers imagination. They writhe and twitch while they are on the hunt for one of your precious body cells. One can almost imagine them squealing to one another "Thats the one fellas, that is the cell we turn into Fort Viri!!". Then they attack, attaching their bodies to the cells only defense, its outer wall. The cunning viri know ...

Vietnamese Culture/ American Culture Being a Vietnamese-American is very tough on me, because I have to deal with two different cultures and traditions. My parents were brought up in a different culture therefore it is hard for them to adapt to a new one. I live and I am influenced by the American culture. My friends, my school, the television, the radio, and the Internet are some examples of the everyday things that influence me. On the other hand, my parents try very hard to raise me the best way they can and they do that by raising me the only way they know how. They bring me up the same way they were brought up. I understand that it is very difficult to adopt a new way and style of teach ...

Vaclav Havel From Playwright To President - 1,479 words
The president of the Czech Republic was not always a politician. Vaclav Havel's first career was in the theatre. Throughout his work in drama, Havel satirized the Communistic government of Czechoslovakia. He became a dissident because of his writings and soon began political movements that eventually brought him to power in his country. Havel is considered by may to be one of the best Czech writers there are around today.

Virginity - 647 words
In biological terms men really dont have a physical way to show or define their virginity, but in women the presence of a hymen is the clear indicator of virginity. However, there are some women who are born without a hymen, and there are others who are born with a thin hymen that can rupture through a variety of activities totally unrelated to sex, such as inserting a tampon. If these women dont have hymens can they still be considered virgins? Websters dictionary defines virginity as, a person who has never had sexual intercourse. (Websters Dictionary, Nichols Publishing Group, 1999. pg. 747) Older generations, such as my grandparents, define virginity as someone that has never been kissed ...

View Of Teen Suicide - 307 words
For some teenagers, divorce, the formation of a new family with stepparents and stepsiblings, or moving to a new community can be very unsettling and can intensify self-doubts. In some cases, suicide appears to be a "solution." For example love, like in Romeo and Juliet. Two characters, so madly in love that when their parents wouldn't bless their relationship that they took their own lives. For suicide to look like the perfect solution there would have to be something really wrong with the equation (like a childs' conditioning/upbringing). Not that I'm putting all the blame on parents, because they can only do so much. There are other factors for which a weak minded child may look to suicid ...

EXPLORATION AND DISSECTION OF A MAMMALIAN HEART In this experiment, we obtained a fresh heart and dissected it to examine and observe the different parts of the heart, as well as studying how they function and work Problem: How can we study the heart through dissection? The most basic function of the circulatory system is to move the blood. The organ that provides the force to push the blood through the vessels is the heart. The mammalian heart is composed of four chambers to which large blood vessels are connected. The walls of these chambers are made of cardiac muscle tissue. It is the contraction of these muscular walls in a synchronized manner that moves the blood through this pump and i ...
