Dear Eleanor Moylan,

It has come to my attention that you never received your letter from us regarding a placement at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. I am afraid that this news has come to my attention at such late notice, on the day of your 20th birthday, however I would like to offer a formal apology.
After the Battle of Hogwarts in 1998 a large portion of potential student records were lost in the battle, information regarding Muggle-born, Half-bloods and Pure-records from 1995 to 1997 were lost or damaged beyond redemption. We worked tirelessly with the ministry of magic to amend this issue however we just simply weren’t able to restore all the respective documents for every child born within that timeframe.
It comes with great remorse to say that this is my last term as head teacher at Hogwarts. After more than a decade acting as the headmistress of this school I feel I have offered all I can to the pupils and staff. I would just like to say, off the record, that I am definitely not retiring on account of a certain pupil starting this coming semester. After all the trouble that last Potter put me through all those years ago I can’t imagine going through all of that again with Albus Potter.
But alas, I seem to have wondered off topic, something I seem to being doing a lot as of recently, I must admit this is partly due to me getting on a bit.
As a token of my apology I would like to offer you a copy of ‘Harry Potter and the Cursed Child: Parts 1 & 2 (Special Rehearsal Edition)’. Unfortunately the use of muggle-born delivery services such as the Royal Mail are strictly forbidden for such magical items and therefore can’t be with you today. However I will be sending this item by owl mail and estimate that it should be with you by the 31st July.

Yours Sincerely,

Madam Professor Minerva McGonagall
Headmistress of Hogwarts School of…...

Nuclear War

...Nuclear Warfare Jessica Mendez History 1000c Professor Herbin December 3, 2012 Today I write to you, Mr. President, with understanding that we, as a nation, sit in a tough predicament. The war has been going on for quite sometime now and although we’ve made some advances on the front lines, it still doesn’t seem like enough to defeat those threatening us. Innocent lives have been taken on both our part as well as our enemies’ and our nation is looking to you in hopes that you may have some sort of a strategy to end this war once and for all. It has been brought to my attention that the use of nuclear weapons has been proposed to you as a strategy to bring this long war to an end. Nuclear weapons have proved somewhat successful in the past (WWII) and are still available for use in an even larger quantity. The reason why my saying that it was “somewhat successful” is because although it brought an ending to World War II, it caused a tremendous amount of hurt to many innocent people and to nature. The use of the nuclear weapon also tickled the curiosity of many nations to begin building their own nuclear bombs. When it was first used, we were the only ones that had successfully harnessed the nuclear energy to use it as weapons of mass destruction. Now in time, that is no longer the case. Many nations now also have a line up of nuclear weapons of mass destruction hidden away and ready to be used at a moments notice. Personally, I don’t believe that the use of......

Natural Resources Defense Council issue paper Commercial Nuclear Power EXECUTIVE SUMMARY Because of the sheer magnitude and urgency of the global climate challenge, the United States must consider all forms of energy—as long as they do not otherwise undermine international and environmental security. Unfortunately, the nuclear power industry in its present state suffers from too many security, safety, and environmental exposure problems and excessive costs to qualify as a leading means to combat global warming pollution. Large-scale nuclear plants remain uneconomic to build. And while the nuclear fuel cycle emits little global warming pollution, nuclear power still poses globally significant risks that need to be further reduced,......

Nuclear Energy

...Given past events, nuclear power technology is seen by many people as the means to make war, death, bombs, and destruction. These are comparitive rarities to the good that nuclear energy poses for our future, and its capacity for clean efficient energy generation. Almost all of the energy produced today from nuclear is in the form of electricity, comprising 16% of global production. The number doesn't seem to be that large, but when taking into account the energy used on the entire planet, and the capacity to better the nuclear industry for the future we find ourselves wondering how vital it really is to our livelyhood. One could say that the development of nuclear is vital because of global warming threats. Since our combustion of fossil fuels produces carbon in the atmosphere, resulting in rising heat over time. Nuclear provides a form of noncombusting renewable energy that if prudently researched and implemented provides an alternative to polluting engines of the past. This warming fear is a large reason nuclear power is a growing idea. The technology is not simple to do, the production is a very meticulous process, wielding great power for good and great danger. The process requires strong regulation. With such a high risk, high reward scenario, we as humanity's hope for a better tomorrow must weigh the pros and cons to find if we are able to prudently expand and increase research towards safety and efficiency. Producing nuclear energy is not as simple as taking it......

Science

...One of the major shortcomings of science supposedly is a lack of communication between scientists and the general public. Many argue that too often, science is only presented in written academic journals that are not so easily obtained by the general public. This is discussed on a daily basis and was argued in the aftermath of the 2011 earthquake and tsunami in Japan, as well as in on-going debate about other scientific theories and ideas. However, people fail to realize a few things. One of the major things is that, in terms of an earthquake or tsunami, you simply cannot predict anything like that. You cannot blame scientists for not being able to predict an earthquake like a meteorologist can predict weather events. Scientists can study things like seismic activity and they can make assumptions as to what may happen should an earthquake of a high magnitude hit and cause something catastrophic like a tsunami. Yet, some fail to realize that some safety measures were taken, and even inspectors that visited the Fukushima Nuclear power plant asked Japanese authorities to increase safety measures further. According to a France24 news article written three months after the catastrophe, “A three-page summary was issued at the end of the 18-member team’s May 24-June 2 inspector mission to Japan. It said the country underestimated the threat from tsunamis to the Fukushima plant and urged sweeping changes to its regulatory system. Japanese authorities have been criticised......

Lab Research Report 1: Procedures in the Physical Sciences

...Lab Research Report 1: Procedures in the Physical Sciences Rhoda H. Jefferson Professor Cassie Prisco Introduction to Physical Science November 2, 2013 The specific challenges to making direct measurements in the fields of astronomy, chemistry, physics, or earth science are measuring global warming and climate changes, measuring how the earth rotates on its axis, and measuring the distance from the earth to the stars. Scientist have had these issues for a number of years but overcome using indirect forms to measure these challenges. For global warming, scientist used a 350-year record of precipitation in California determined by using 52 tree ring chronologies as proxies for precipitation. (www.geosociety.org/gsatoday/archive/11/12/pdf/i1052-5173-11-12-41.pdf) This method was used to determine average annual precipitation, which showed extended dry periods. These methods were not 100% because there were no baselines to compare. In this day and time to obtain a temperature that represents a large area, it requires measurements of multiple locations. Measurements are taken by thermometers, and averaged together, this can aide in determining regional trends. (http://www.thenewatlantis.com/publications/taking-the-earths-temperature) Another challenge that scientist come up against is measuring how the earth rotates on its axis. When the earth rotates on its axis, it fluctuates in relation to space. This is caused by the gravity from the sun and the......

Ultraviolet Light Science Lab Report

...Ultraviolet Light Science Lab Report Purpose: To see what and how we are protected from Ultraviolet Lights. Introduction: I am trying to test the effect of ultraviolet rays from the Sun on the skin. The ultraviolet rays from the Sun cannot be seen with the eye, but can still hurt you. The Sun releases radiation, which is electromagnetic waves of infrared (IR) to ultraviolet rays (UV). The electromagnetic spectrum ranges from longer wavelengths (IR) to shorter wavelengths (UV). Ultraviolet rays are closer to the shorter wavelengths, and can go through layers of skin and harm our bodies. The two types of ultraviolet rays are UVA and UVB. UVA are long wavelengths that go through the many layers of the skin, and may cause cancer. UVB are shorter wavelengths, and do not go through the multiple layers of the skin, but can also cause skin cancer. Sunscreen helps protect the skin from these harmful rays. The higher SPF (Sun Protection Factor) of the sunscreen, the better protected your skin will be. The prediction is one of the beads with the sunscreen will work better than the other because of the SPF number. The higher the SPF sunscreen, the better it will work. It will block the ultraviolet rays from the Sun from going through multiple layers of your skin. Sunscreen only protects us from UVB rays The independent variable is the Ultraviolet Light and the dependent variable is the different sunscreen. The control is the beads without sunscreen. The......

Nuclear Medicine

...Nuclear Medicine Brenda L. Clark Argosy University Contemporary Applications of the Sciences Module 4 Assignment 2 Dr. Frankin Barrish Nuclear medicine is being used to help fight diseases as well as being able to take Images of an individual’s body (News Medical, 2015). The radioactive substance works with the nuclear medicine and this is important because it aids with looking inside the opaque human body (News Medical, 2015). Within this paper you will read how the technical and scientific perceptions relate to nuclear medicine. The most common radiation is radiopharmaceutical in regards to nuclear medicine procedures that are being done today (American Cancer Society, 2015). The radiopharmaceutical is the radioactive pharmaceutical and is used in diagnosing and treating diseases such as cancer (American Cancer Society, 2015). This type of radiation is injected, ingested, or inhaled in the individual’s body before the doctor is able to diagnose what the individual is dealing with (Mosby Dictionary, 2009). The imaging technique is how the doctor is able to do this. This type of radiation is also used for relieving pain or help to treat the disease. This type of radiation operates once it is hosted within the body and then travels to certain areas that have abnormality (Mosby Dictionary, 2009). The radioactive part of the pharmaceutical releases the gamma rays and then the gamma camera is able to pick it up (Mosby Dictionary, 2009). This is how a......

Report on Teaching of Science with List of References at the End

...PART A Report on Teaching of Science with list of references at the end Introduction This report aims to look at how we should be implementing the Science curriculum, in accordance to what the authors and professionals think, it will look at how it should be taught in primary schools. The key stage I have chosen to examine is lower key stage two. Lower key stage two consists of children in Year 3 (aged 7-8) and Year 4 (8-9). The report will examine the National Curriculum and how teaching of Science is defined by them. The National Curriculum (2014 p.155) requires children of this age phase to work scientifically. This would namely be looking at encouraging children to ask their own questions, how to set up a practical investigation, gathering the results through numerous graphs/charts (recording data) comparing and analysing what makes a fair test, predicting what the outcome may be (with independent and dependant variables), how to make observations based on these findings, identifying and comparing what they predicted as opposed to what happened, and lastly being able to answer questions using scientific terminology and knowledge. By using various literature and documentation, this report will look at how teachers can teach Science but at the same time be using the National Curriculum as a guideline. Review of teaching Working Scientifically Ofsted (2013) states that the new National Curriculum for 2014 explains the reasoning for teaching Science. It states that......

Science Report

...Abstract This report is express results and findings from three different experiments which were done by Galileo. The link between weights, time, angles, and lengths of pendulums . The results showed that the shorter pendulum took less time to complete full 10 swings. The length and weight has no influence on the pendulum. 1.0 Introduction The Italian scientists Galilie Galileo (1564-1642) established experimentally that heavy objects fall at practically the same rate. It was obvious to this scientists that a feather and heavy stone did not fall at the same acceleration. But, heavy objects of different masses appeared to fall at a uniform acceleration. Galileo did not measure the magnitude of the acceleration of falling object. Instead, Galileo was able to compare the velocities of objects on ramps at different heights. But Galileo’s ramp investigations is believed to have been after his investigation of the movement of pendulums. This investigation aim to find out some relationships between three quantities by three experiments . The features measured the time, length and weights, angles which are all dependent factors in experiments. The hypothesis is that there is no effect by changing the weights and lengths and shorter pendulum took less time to complete full 10 swings based on the formula : 2.0 Procedure and Materials To test this hypothesis, the equipments were some strings, coins(masses), nails(fix point), cups, timer and protractor. Experiment 1: a) Attach a......
