The History Of Organic Chemistry - 1,507 words
Chemistry has been called the science of what things are. Its intent is the exploration of the nature of the materials that fabricate our physical environment, why they hold the different properties that depict them, how their atomic structure may be fathomed, and how they may be manipulated and changed. Although organic reactions have been conducted by man since the discovery of fire, the science of Organic chemistry did not develop until the turn of the eighteenth century, mainly in France at first, then in Germany, later on in England. By far the largest variety of materials that bombard us are made up of organic elements. The beginning of the Ninetieth century was also the dawn of chemis ...

Organic Farming - 1,119 words
On a scale from Right to Left, right being absolute anthropocentric and the left being the realm of eco-terrorists, I would say that I fall somewhere just to the left of middle. I am a businessman and I believe that profit is number one. I am a citizen of this planet and I strongly believe that drastic measures must be taken to protect it. To most people the preceding statements seem contradictory but I see a strong correlation. Right now corporations all around the world are plundering their own resources, some willfully, others through ignorance. According to the book of Genesis god put all the flora and fauna on this planet for consumption by humans, we have taken that a step further to i ...

Are Organic Foods Better For You? - 1,461 words
Organic farming began in the late 1940s in the United States, and in recent years it has seen a dramatic increase in popularity (Rubin 1). The sales of organic foods have been increasing by about 20 percent a year over the past decade (Marcus 1). That is over ten times the rate of their conventional counterparts (Harris 1). There are 10 million consumers of organic food in the United States, yet organic food represents only one percent of the nations food supply. This year organic food sales are expected to rise to six billion dollars (Rubin 1). So what are organic foods? Organic foods are those which are grown without hormones, pesticides, or synthetic fertilizers. Also, the soil in which o ...

Organic Foods - 726 words
Since the 1920s when chemical fertilizers were first used commercially on a large scale, there have been claims that agricultural chemicals produce less healthful and less nutritious food crops. By the 1940s, the organic farming movement had begun, in part due to this belief that food grown using more traditional, chemical-free methods was more healthful. Foods grown by these methods came to be known as "organic." Today, this notion has continued in the alternate health arena, and some alternative treatments, such as the Gerson cancer therapy, rely on food grown organically. But the question remains: is organically grown food better for us? There is so much out there these days saying how ba ...

Organic Agriculture - 493 words
Nevertheless, America's appetite for all-natural, organic food has grown at the remarkable rate of over 20 percent annually for the past 10 years. This makes organic agriculture--farming and processing food without the use of synthetic chemicals, such as synthetic pesticides and many inorganic fertilizers--the fastest growing sector of America's agricultural economy. Contrast that to the scarcity of organic items to be found 20 years ago ... and those only in specialty shops. Today, organic selections are as easy to find in conventional supermarkets and mainstream stores as in natural food stores. (Goodwin, 1999). In fact, mainstream stores altogether account for 49 percent of organic retail ...

Holesterol - 1,541 words
For years, cholesterol has been a major concern for millions of people around the world. This fear of cholesterol has led to many consultations with specialists like physicians and nutritionists. It seems that there is a great misconception about this molecule. A majority of the population is conscious of the harm that it can cause, but they are not aware that it has pertinent values to our body. There are two major forms that cholesterol comes in: 1) low density lipoprotein, which is generally considered "bad" cholesterol and 2) high density lipoprotein, which is known as "good" cholesterol. Although given these names, there is nothing inherently good or bad about them. This research will c ...

Caries - 2,340 words
Caries have been a constant nuisance to humans, decaying teeth can become a major problem for those affected. It is certainly not the oldest pathology, nor the one of the greatest prevalence throughout humankind, but the information that can be extrapolate from such pathologies is great. The aim of this paper is to outline the pathology of caries and the influence that these have had on the human populations affected. Caries or caries dentium is the common name for tooth decay. It is a local disease, which is characterized by an irreversible and permanent destruction of the tooth hard tissue, enamel. Thus spreads the destruction to the rest of the tooth and, and possibly leading to tooth los ...

Ice Age Extinctions Of The Megafauna - 1,630 words
... vironments than do smaller animals. Larger animals are safer from predators than small animals are, but it is also harder for them to sustain in trying conditions. Many of the larger animals such as mammoths and bison travel in herds, and that, along with their large size, protects them from predators. However, when the predator is Mother Nature, there is virtually no defense. For modern day elephants, drought is the biggest concern. It can take twenty percent of a herd every year, but the elephants continue to exist (Ward, 1997). It would have been harder though, for the mammoths and mastodons to survive a drought. Because of their size and weight, the Ice Age Proboscidea had longer ges ...

Frank Lloyd Wright - 1,442 words
NOTE: Received an "A" with some corrections. If your professor is one who checks bibliography's be careful with mine. American architect, Frank Lloyd Wright is considered the pioneer in modern style and one of the greatest figures in twentieth-century architecture (Twombly, 16). According to Frank Lloyd Wright: having a good start, not only do I fully intend to be the greatest architect who has yet lived, but fully intend to be the greatest architect who will ever live. Yes, I intend to be the greatest architect of all time. It appears that from the beginning, Frank Lloyd Wright was destined by fate, or determination, or by his mothers support, to be one of the most innovative and celebrated ...

Jean Arp - 506 words
Art is a fruit that grows in man, like a fruit on a plant, or a child in its mother's womb, once commented Jean Arp--a remarkable twentieth-century sculptor, painter and poet associated with and a forefather of the Dada and Surrealist movements. The avant-garde artist was born on September 16, 1887 in Strasbourg, France, where he studied at the Ecole des Arts et Mtiers. In 1905, he transferred to the Weimar Academy and then to Paris at the Acadmie Julian in 1908, and subsequent to graduation resumed his painting in Weggis, Switzerland in isolation. By 1912, Jean Arp had become associated with the Blaue Reiter, or Blue Rider, a group of Expressionist artists in Munich, where he exhibited semi ...

A horizontal plane is then passed through the hemisphere at the tops of these arches, providing a ring on which is built the dome, which has a diameter equal to the circle inscribed within the square. The pendentives are spherical triangles, the remaining portions of the first, or outer, hemisphere. At Hagia Sophia, two opposing arches on the central square open into semidomes, each pierced by three smaller radial semidomes, forming an oblong volume 31 m (100 ft) wide by 80 m (260 ft) long. The central dome rises out of this series of smaller spherical surfaces. A ...

Egyptian Rulers And Their Gods - 685 words
The relationship between Egyptian rulers and their gods were ever present in many examples of Egyptian art throughout the many changes in leadership. The depictions of these relationships, however, were not always consistent from ruler to ruler, dynasty to dynasty. The Palette of Narmer, Seated Statue of Khafre, and Akenaten and Nefertit and their Children are three prime examples of the differences in depiction from one period to another. The Palette of Narmer, done around 3000 B.C. in the Predynastic Period, depicts King Narmer as the most important figure of the work. A system of hierarchical proportions is important to this piece. Narmers dominating size and central position on the front ...

A mixed style, i.e. a style composed of Graeco-Roman and Oriental elements which, in earlier centuries, cannot be clearly separated. The form of the church used most in the west, a nave supported on columns and an atrium (see BASILICA), appears in many examples of the fifth century in Byzantium as well as in Rome; the sixth century saw such churches erected in other regions outside Rome, at Ravenna, in Istria, and in Africa. In the West this style of building occasionally presents (in S. Lorenzo and S. Agnes at Rome) peculiarities which are ascribed by some authorities to Oriental origin -- galleries over the side aisles, spirally channelled columns, and imposts between capitals and arches. ...

Social responsibility is the concept that business is part of the larger society in which it exists and must therefore act in a way that not only advances the firm, but also serves the society. More than ever firms are being challenged to integrate social responsibilities in to their operations. Many firms now believe that social responsibility to be a lot more than granting money to community groups or volunteering their time to organizations - although these are both important ways that firms support the community. Today, business leaders recognize that a commitment to corporate social responsibility can provide distinct advantage in attracting and retaining employees, dealing with supplie ...

This format of moving merchandise in a way where the amount or items purchased arent necessarily discretionary is especially popular at auctions. A tiered form of price discrimination, second degree is the practice of selling incremental amounts of a good for incremental prices. The first 12 pairs of shoes are $80, the next 12 pair are $72, and so on. The customers, like in discrimination of the 3rd degree, are grouped together in the corresponding tiers so to speak, and since the tiers all pay the same price, the marginal revenue is constant within each tier and its purchases.

Do you have a living room in your house? A carport? Does your house have an "open" floor plan? If so, then the way you live is being directly influenced by Frank Lloyd Wright's innovations in residential architecture (Copplestone 1). Frank Lloyd Wright was born in 1867 in southwestern Wisconsin of talented and dynamic parents; his father a preacher and musician, his mother a teacher. From his father, Wright learned how the order and structure of music had influenced his perception of architectural form. From his mother, he acquired a strong respect for learning (Copplestone 8). Wright spent his boyhood summers on the farms of his Welsh uncles where he learned to appreciate the values of natu ...

The Nature Of Lucy - 1,384 words
William Wordsworth is a revered romantic poet who believed that the meaning of romanticism is best illustrated when using everyday life events and familiar speech. Wordsworths explicit love of nature and mastery of the language allowed him to bring such emotion and power into each poem without the use of sophisticated words, which he believes takes away the effect of what is trying to be said. His intentions were such that any man capable of reading, well educated or not, could feel these emotions and fully understand his projected messages. He drops to the earth, for once, all that matter-of-factness of which Coleridge complained (Internet Bartleby). (Coleridge did not look to nature the wa ...

I would rather dream Vancouver than Hong Kong. With its beautiful weather conditions and natural atmosphere, Vancouver is regarded as one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Hong Kong, on the other hand, is a booming center for industry and business that suffers from high urbanization and pollution. It is this extreme difference in both climate and scenery that makes Vancouver seem like a pleasant dream, compared to the nightmare that is Hong Kong. The mountainous forests and proximity to the Pacific Coast make Vancouvers atmosphere one of relaxation and leisure.

Unger continues, "He was then terrified to quit drinking, because it had happened in a hospital in San Francisco and it had happened when he'd tried to quit on his own; so he kept on drinking" (59). In his story "Where I'm Calling From," Carver has a character named Tiny in Frank Martin's drying out facility who has these sort of seizures immediately after describing to his fellow recovering alcoholics how he feels much better and will be leaving soon. Carver was often suspicious of good fortune. During his successful, sober years he would often marvel that he could own things like boats to fish in, and two cars--one a Mercedes--that weren ...
