Global Warming
Global warming is the greatest challenge that our planet is facing. In fact the increase in the temperature of the earth’s air, several current trends clearly demonstrates that global warming is impacting our environment. Many people around the world are debating the facts about global warming. The problem of global warming has been unsolvable; researchers have various problems that we as humans have inflicted on the earth. Because of the fact that we are contributing to the global warming through our activities of burning of fossil fuels, industrial plants, farming and deforestation activities are only phases that the earth is experiencing, besides the greenhouse effect.

The greenhouse effect which is water vapors, carbon dioxide and methane which our all gases and which water vapor accounts for “80 percent of natural greenhouse warming; the remaining 20 percent is due to the other gases that are present in very small amounts (murck, skinner and porter 488)”. Greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide, methane and water vapors are harmful gases that humanity helps in emitting into the atmosphere. Subsequently there are consequences that society as a whole has to deal with like the rise of sea levels, melting of snow and ice glaciers, climate changes, floods and droughts.

All in which can be disastrous (absolute astronomy, 2011). With the significant changes in our climate, our agricultural industries are becoming deserts and its making it difficult for crops to grow and with the bad economic conditions people will have to move, for that reason it’s very important to carefully manage the greenhouse effect by reducing the amount of carbon dioxide that is going into the air and planting more trees. There have to be some way to control global warming with the growing…...

The Reformation Movement

...The reformation movement began in the early 16th century, and was started by Martin Luther. Martin Luther was a religious man, in that he believed in strongly in the scriptures and believed that they held the ultimate authority, and specifically held authority over the Pope and the entire Roman Catholic organization. Martin Luther “protested” the rituals, doctrines and many general practices of the Roman Catholic church. Some would say the movement began officially when Martin Luther posted his 95 Theses on the door of the church. After expressing his contentions with Roman Catholic church, he was eventually exiled, however, while in exile he translated a copy of The New Testament into German. This happened to coincide with the printing press becoming popular. The printing press allowed for Luther’s book to be widely distributed, and this was one of the main reasons the reformation was able to spread the way it did. There were other people of this time with new ideas who leveraged the use of the printing press to spread their ideas. One of those individuals was Michael Montaigne, who is credited with inventing the essay. Another key reason the movement was able to spread the way it did was the fact the rebellious attitude towards the authority of the time resonated with the peasant workers. It’s notable that the church had already suffered damage to its credibility from 15th century stressors such as the black death. With these well timed events and new technology,......

Ice Movement

...Ice movement Cold based glaciers (POLAR) occur in the high Latitudes where the temperature of the snow fall is far below zero degrees and the ice of the glacier remains at below zero throughout the year. These glaciers therefore stay frozen to the bedrock all year and there fore there is little ice movement and therefore little erosion. Greenland and the Antarctic have cold based glaciers. Warm based glaciers or temperate glaciers have water present throughout the ice mass and this water acts as a lubricant. This may be for a period of the year or all year, and allows for much greater rates of movement and thus more erosion. These glaciers are often found in mountain glaciers at lower latitudes but higher altitudes than polar glaciers. Cold based glaciers move mainly by internal deformation. These glaciers are frozen to the bed and therefore only move 1-2cm a day. The ice crystals within the glacier orientate themselves in the direction of ice movement. This allows ice crystals to slide past one another. Where the ice movement is fast enough crevasses may develop. Temperate glaciers move mainly through BASAL SLIPPAGE. If the glacier moves, this can raise the temperature of the base ice through pressure and friction. The basal ice can then melt, and this water helps to allow the ice to slip more easily over its bed. This could move at 2-3m per day and pick up material with which it can use to erode its bed. This is related to regelation, which is the phenomenon of......

Syria Movement

...the social movement in Syria can be explained. According to the evolutionary theory society naturally evolves into higher levels with time hence resulting to social change. The public has become aware of its social and economic problems. In its quest to better its living standards grassroots oppositions have become more vocal .This is clearly evident in the social movement of Syria. The social movement hopes to achieve radical reforms which include democracy, improved living conditions both socially and economically. In line with the evolutionary theory all societies undergo the same stages of change the ultimate results will vary from one society and the other. Syria’s social movement revolution hopes the violence and protest will invoke change .Drawing examples from Libya and Egypt which have undergone similar revolutions and the success of the Democratic Republic of Turkey. Syria hopes to achieve similar or even better results in terms of better social and economic reforms. The conflict theory suggests that social change is invoked by the increased awareness on the social inequalities and injustices. Society’s wealthy and powerful ensures the laws favour their interests to the detriment of the poor. The arising conflict is an attempt to bridge the gap through equitable distribution of wealth and improved living conditions. Syria’s social movement clearly ......

The Antiglobalization Movement

...Anti-Globalization Movement “Anti-globalization Movement is a disputed term referring to the international social movement network that gained widespread media attention after protests against the World Trade Organization (WTO) in Seattle, WA in late November and early December 1999. Activists and scholars debate whether it constitutes a single social movement or represents a collection of allied groups, a "movement of movements." (Engler, 2007). The Anti-globalization movement opposes different types of social, economic, and ecological injustices that are believed to be the consequence of globalization which are against globalization. Participants of the Anti-globalization movement oppose political powers of large MNCs, and the powers of trade agreements. Corporations have been accused of seeking to maximize profits at the expense of undermining labor standards, environmental conservation principles and the integrity of national legislative capacity. Activists of the Anti-globalization movement seek global integration that provides better democratic representation, advancement of human rights and more egalitarian states. Anti globalization is argued from several points of view, the environmental aspects of globalization, human rights, nationalism (mostly economics), and heterogeneous. Allowing that many of the groups that anti globalization are single focus groups, the different groups do band together to create interest in their causes. The environmental......

Social Movements

...A social movement is a group of individuals who act collectively to stop or resist a social change. A social movement consists of individuals who are committed to a cause, usually attempting to bring a new order to life. The cause being fought for can vary, ranging from politics to human rights to animal rights. For this optional homework, I did a bit of research on the Animal Rights Movement. The Animal Rights Movement is a large social movement operating in Canada, as well as the United States. The Animal Rights movement advocates that animals should be afforded the same consideration as human beings. Animals should not be treated as property but rather as living beings. Advocates approach the issue from different philosophical positions, ranging from the protectionist side of the movement, presented by philosopher Peter Singer with a utilitarian focus on suffering and consequences, rather than on the concept of rights, to the abolitionist side, represented by law professor Gary Francione, who argues that animals need only one right, the right not to be property. A current dilemma that we see take place is the fight between companies and animal rights movement on if it is right for the companies to test their product on animals. For many companies, the ideology of Peter Singer is used. However for others, such as The Body Shop, products being tested on animals is forbidden, and is advertised on all their products. Animal Rights: The Abolitionists Approach is an......

Cubism Movement

...Beginning in 1907 the Cubism movement was set into motion by Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque; this would eventually become the most internationally influenced movement of the 20th Century. The movement has roots dating back to European traditions of the Renaissance, which can be seen it its illusionism and deconstruction of linear perspective. The Cubism movement can be broken down into two primary styles of Analytical and Synthetic Cubism, each equally influential in their own way. First up was Analytical Cubism; this references the artist objective of analyzing and breaking down of the form and space within the picture plane. Analytical Cubism was the period from 1907 to 1912; it was formed primarily at the hands of Pablo Picasso, Paul Cezanne and George Seurat. Analytical Cubism was a period of exploration in separating the perceived reality of what we can view and the intellectual reality of what we know. These characteristics include flattening the pictorial surface and simplifying the picture plane to only a basic geometric fragmentation of the subject. Additionally, minimal color was used in order to further flatten the subject. Flatness was a key characteristic of Analytical Cubism; lack of warm and cool hues prevented the subject from becoming dimensional and eliminated any single focal point. With the goal of Analytical Cubism being to separate realities, artist used easily recognizable items or ordinary subjects. Things used were often just found around the......

Naxal Movement

...Where they failed, however, was in designing a realistic agenda and an effective process for parties that lacked the willingness and capacity to implement their promises. So how can the CMG be made to develop that capacity? First, the panel must be prepared for the two sets of issues that the Naxalites are known to raise. The first set of demands is limited in scope, relatively tangible, and easier to evaluate — for instance, the release of imprisoned Maoists or the return of tribal land being occupied by non-tribals. Such demands present tangible and immediate choices to the government for which it can balance costs and benefits. However, the second set of demands involves the underlying needs and perceived injustices that drive their movement. These are filled with historical baggage, larger in impact and potential cost and thus harder to weigh against the value of a particular life. To work through these requires formidable skill — which the CMGs can develop in Naxalite and government negotiators. Homing in on underlying needs Such skills should be taught based on principled negotiation techniques, which start with a fundamental premise: never negotiate the demands, start with the needs and wants underlying them. This analysis is done through a carefully constructed process of sharing information and active listening that doesn’t come naturally to conflicting parties. As the underlying needs are revealed, the parties learn to find creative solutions through an......

Movement Analysis

...Movement Analysis of Throwing a Ball Overhand Throwing a ball overhand involves a stride, hip rotation, trunk rotation and forward arm movement. 1. Phase A/B is a stride. Thrower stands sideways set towards target. When the opposite leg moves out and onto toes at the point of thrust. The pivot foot braces against the ground and provides stability for the subsequent movements. During this phase there is a natural rotation of the hip and the trunk rotation follows. The hips rotate before the trunk and due to the stretching of the torso muscles there is a stronger muscle contraction which allows you to throw with more force. The stride provides balance and stability throughout the act of throwing the ball, and all of the large muscle movements are gross motor skills. 2. Phase B/C Following the trunk rotation the throwing arm cocks back with the forearm in slight external rotation the arm moves into horizontal scapula adduction while grasping the ball tightly, using fine motor skills. 3. Phase C/D following the scapula horizontal adduction the throwing arm pushes forward into horizontal adduction, the elbow joint straightens and the thrower releases the ball. This is where the greatest forces are used to accelerate the ball. All, in the same instant, the throwing side the foot moves forward providing stability while the trunk and hip rotate forward. Phase A-B | | | | Joints Invovled | Movement | Prime Mover/Agonist Muscle | Plane of Movement | ......

Movement at Joints

...CHART 1 – MOVEMENT AT JOINTS PHYSICAL ACTIVITY | SYNOVIALJOINT (S) | EXPLANATION OF THE TYPE OF MOVEMENT OCCURING | Tumble turn in swimming | The type of synovial joint when doing a tumble turn in swimming is the ball and socket joint in the hip. | When doing a tumble turn in swimming the movement you will need is rotation, because once you have pushed of the wall you rotate your body using your hips so you can face the right direction. Another movement you have when doing a tumble turn is extension, because when you push of the wall your body is fully straightened. | Striking a football at a penalty kick | The types of synovial joints when taking a penalty kick is the hinge joint in the knee and the gliding joint in the hands. | When taking a penalty kick the type of movement you use is abduction because when you shoot you are taking your leg away from the centre line of your body. Also when taking a penalty the type of movement you use is flexion because when you strike the ball your leg has a backwards and forward motion. Finally the last movement you have when striking a football for a penalty kick is extension because when you take your penalty your hinge joint is fully stretched. | Knee lift in sprinting | The types of synovial joints when doing knee lift in sprinting is the hinge joint, ball and socket joint. | The type of movement you have when doing knee lifts in sprinting is abduction because when you lift your knees......

Social Movement

...contrast two different social movement theories. The study of social movements is a very broad subject and with every new movement paves a way for new theories to be developed. Social movements is usually defined as a group of individuals who share the same ideology and together all try to obtain different political, social and economic goals. Among the current leading social movements looked at today includes resource mobilization, collective behaviour theory, political opportunities theory and frame alignment theory. Throughout this essay I will compare and contrast the two theories which are resource mobilization and the ‘new social movements theory’. Research for resource mobilization theory was introduced during the 1970’s . Resource mobilization was a social movement based on ‘the idea that successful movements acquire resources and create advantageous exchange relationships with other groups as they achieve success in fulfilling their goals’(Constain,1992). Within the framework of this theory outlines two distinct approaches which include: ‘organizational/entrepreneurial’ model presented by McCarthy and Zald and secondly, the socio-political or ‘political/interactive’ argued more favourably by authors such as Tilly, Diani, and McAdam. On the other hand the ‘new social movements theory revolves as an attempt to define the different features of more current social movements which handle global ecology and Native rights. These type of movements raise attention upon the......

The Women's Movement

...The Women’s Rights Movement The beginning of the fight for women’s suffrage in the United States grew out of a larger women’s rights movement. The reform evolved in the 19th century emphasized a large spectrum of goals before focusing on securing the franchise for women. Women’s rights movements are concerned with making political, social and economic status of women equal to men and establish safeguards against discrimination. Just like any movement there were enemies, but in this case the enemy was not a foreign citizens or different cultures but the enemy was men. Early before 1849 the idea of a women’s rights movement came to the United States and many women decided to take a stand and they stood up against the men of the country to fight for their rights as American Citizens. In 1789, when the United States constitution went into effect only 60% of American citizens could vote. Those voters were wealthy white men that held a large sum of land. “Many white men and most African Americans, Native Americans, and women were excluded” (WB 4). During this time women were not considered equal as citizens and were not given the equal rights they deserved. At the time of this segregated suffrage the idea of women’s suffrage leaders came about. Women’s suffrage leaders would often disagreed about the tactics for their reform efforts and could never agree on how to start the movement. Ultimately, the suffrage movement provided political training for some of the early women......

Womens Movement

...feminist movement in the 60’s originally focused on these issues. In 1964, Representative Howard Smith of Virginia wanted to help women and proposed to add a prohibition on gender discrimination in the civil rights laws. He was greeted by laughter from other congressman, but with the leadership from Representative Martha Griffiths of Michigan, the law was passed. However, most women knew this would not enforce the protection of women workers. Therefore, a group of feminists, including the great Betty Friedan, founded NOW (National Organization for Women), an organization to fight gender discrimination through the courts and legislatures. The purpose of NOW, sought to bring women into full participation in the mainstream of American society, exercising all the privileges and responsibilities thereof in truly equal partnership with men (The 1960s-70s American Feminist Movement). However, the success of women receiving more job opportunities was driven by a favorable confluence of economic and societal changes. After World War II, the boom of the American economy outplaced the available workforce, making it necessary for women to fill new job openings. In fact two-thirds of all new jobs went to women in the late 60’s. The nation had to accept this new idea of hard working women in the workforce. One woman stated, “I knew I was a part of making history… It gave you a real high because you knew real things could come out of it,” (The 1960s-70s American Feminist......

Movement Examples

...1. Angular Movement Abduction- Abduction is the movement of a limb outward from the midline of the body. This movement is used in ballet while doing a tendu. The tendu mainly uses the quadriceps, calf and the gluteal muscles. 2. Circular Movement Circumduction- Circumduction is the combination of angular movements. This movement is used in the butterfly stroke, among others, in swimming. The main muscles in the upper body used while swimming are the anterior and posterior deltoid, pectoral, serratus anterior, triceps and latissimus dorsi. 3. Forearm Movement Supination- Supination is when the palm is turned up or forward. This movement is used in volleyball when doing an underhand serve. The main muscles used while underhand serving a volleyball are the pectorals, anterior and posterior deltoid, and the latissimus. 4. Ankle Movement Plantar Flexion- Plantar flexion is when the toes point down, flexing the arch of the foot. This is used in most ballet moves or exercises, such as a tendu or a grande battement.......

The Reformation Movement

...The Reformation Movement Research Paper History 117 1. During the 1830s to the 1850s indicated a period when people were beginning to get a sense of reformation regarding American idealism of a democratic and free society. The core goal to end slavery became the central focus to a group known as abolitionists. Formed by a limited amount of men and women both white and black, the abolitionists came most from the North with hardly any from the South. The beliefs of the abolitionists to end slavery in the mid eighteen hundreds, came from not only their understanding of freedom and citizenship which meant equal rights for all persons regardless of their skin color or racial background, but the fact African Americans had not received any rights, and had used slaves as a source of income. Abolitionists indicated “African Americans should be recognized as American citizens and incorporated into the nation” , since American society intended for everyone living in the United States to be citizens. Black and white abolitionists who tried to end slavery were William Lloyd Garrison, Theodore Weld, and Frederick Douglas. 2. The movement of the abolition of slavery started to intensify as both northern and southern individuals gathered to voice their hostility towards slavery by using the public sphere. Abolitionists focused mainly on changing the views of the public on slavery by publishing pamphlets, gathering signatures...

Moderation Movement

...The moderation movement was developed in specific steps to help individuals with alcohol addiction. The concept of this movement is to educate and guide alcoholics about the dangerous health risks and how to utilize advance planning and maintaining control of alcohol consumption by limiting their drinks in a given day and week without exceeding excessive amounts. Abstinence model is another process in treatment that helps people completely eliminate their addiction to alcohol. A well known program that practices various techniques to help people achieve goals of finally becoming sober, are called the Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). I believe in some cases, it would ideal for a person to eventually achieve complete soberness from alcohol, by combining the methods such as applying the moderation movement first, and then gradually guide them into an abstinence model. Although it would be better for their overall health to gain abstinence immediately; by slowly cutting it off may help people cope and not feel so overwhelm of having to give up their alcoholic addiction at a screeching halt. Individuals who have internal locus control normally view the events that surround them are responsible for the outcome of their current situation in life. When mistakes or failures occur, they are likely to seek blame on any possible scenario other than themselves; as a result, many people have fallen victim to domestic violence because they were involved with someone who had internal......
