North American Place Names Research Paper

… North American Place Names

North American settlements

Europeans are responsible for naming most of the present day locations in North America, as they renamed the territories they settled on the basis of the circumstances they came across the respective places, considering religious names and Europeans places or influential individuals as essential in the process of designation.

Air Quality and Watersheds Essay

… Water Math

Water Flow

12f x 5f x 3f/s = 180 cfs

cfs = 449 gpm (from Module 2 document)

180 x 449 = 80,820

180 cfs = 80,820gpm

cfs = 28.32lps (from Google conversions)

180 x 28.32 = 5,097.6

180 cfs = 5,097.7lps

minutes/hr x 24 hrs/day = 1440m/d

80,820 x 1,440 = 116,380,800

449 gpm = 116.38mgd

RV = 0.05 + 0.009I

+ (0.009 x 0.85) = 0.05765

RV = 0.05765

R = P x RV ***

P = 6in = 0.5f

RV = 0.05765

Role of the Military: Changing Views Research Paper

Crime for Many Years, Sociologists Essay

… There are many theories that provide detailed evidence on crime in our society, yet the truths vary and a lot of indications are left unexamined or are unable to be explained. There are numerous presumptions rather than proven research on crime, and investigators will try an answer the doubts and gaps and figure out why misdeeds occur and how to appropriately handle the offenses people carry out. While Marx supported the conflict theory and how inequality in specific groups is required to have a normal functioning society, opposing professionals like Henry and Lanier disagreed that a society should be deemed as whole. Other criminologists and specialists like Currie felt other subsets of a society should be considered like the economy rather than individual groups or…. [read more]
