Surviving 2012 and Planet X Term Paper

… Surviving 2012 and Planet X

There has been much in the media lately about the infamous 2012 deadline and associated Ancient prophesies. Most of the beliefs around the time range from spiritual transformation to apocalyptic. Many of these versions center around the Mayan Calendar, ostensibly the year is the time in which the world as the Mesoamerican cultures predicted would come to an end. Scholars of the Maya, however, point out that rather than a cataclysmic series of events, the Ancient Maya used calendar distinctions to simply herald d a new age. For the ancient Maya, it was a huge celebration to make it to the end of a whole cycle, and the idea of apocalypse is just pseudo -- science (MacDonald, 2007). However, simply…. [read more]

Sustainability Essay

… Unfortunately it appears that there is too much of this resource as humans have really demonstrated a strong capacity for breeding in the last fifty years. As all individuals inevitably have an impact on Earth's life-support systems (although in different ways and to varying degrees), it is in everybody's interest to reduce ethically both the size of the population and our per capita impacts. The main uncertainty in the human future is tied to how equitable the pathways chosen for that rescaling are, the degree of over-shoot that occurs, and the amount of irreversible damage that overshoot inflicts on Earth's life-support systems, (Ehrlich, Kareiva & Daily 2012).

Solar Flares What Causes Thesis

… Conclusion: How to Prepare for the Perfect Storm

There are some ways to predict solar storms, which will help prevent disaster during the next "perfect storm." For example NASA has a program that enables non-scientists to monitor the sun for unusual activity ("Tracking a Perfect Storm"). Solar storms are generally unpredictable except in the case of the increased solar activity during solar maximum times. The next solar maximum will occur in 2012. NASA is predicting that 2012 could be the next "perfect storm," (Webre 2009).

Therefore, power companies and communications companies should ensure that all systems are running with backups. There should be no attempt to put all eggs in one basket; power sources should be multiple. Also, it would be imperative for all businesses…. [read more]

… Preparedness

If a job opportunity in San Francisco was too hard to resist, a number of steps can be taken to maximize safety during earthquakes (USGS, 2009d). For example, choosing a newer building to live in would tend to ensure it has been designed to meet the most recent building codes. Once moved in, reading tips on the USGS website for preparedness reveals what to do and not do during an earthquake, such as turning on and off utilities, purchasing emergency food and water supplies, and where the safe places are inside and outside a structure.

Recent Devastation

Several of the most devastating earthquakes ever recorded have occurred very recently (USGS, 2011b). On January 12, 2010, a magnitude 7.0 earthquake struck Haiti, killing over 300,000…. [read more]

Globalization Reaction Paper

… ¶ … Globalization has changed the face of the planet -- both in terms of how we communicate, what types of political and social issues we face, and even the choices we make in basic human needs like food. After viewing the movie Urban Roots, I was struck with the issues of sustainability, organic foods, mega-farming, and the issues of urban renewal and community as well. One commentator (the director of Moulin Rouge, in fact), noted that America is in the midst of another war -- a food war. The idea of urban farming and people taking personal responsibility for growing food and understanding that there are consequences to eating really changes the way one looks at the products at the local grocery store --….

Promoting Cultural Heritage Literature Review

… Moreover, in spite its strategic partnership with Elephantstay, an international organization committed to elephant conservation and ongoing support from the Thai government, the Royal Kraal at Ayutthaya needs additional resources to fulfill its mission of rescuing and caring for an increasingly endangered, aging elephant population in Thailand. The Royal Kraal's mission is important because the elephant population in Thailand is regarded by international conservation agencies such as the International Union for Conservation of Nature's Species Survival Commission Asian Elephant Specialist Group as being endangered, having been in a state of steady decline since the 1970s (Reading & Miller 2000).

Fortunately, the plight of these and other aging elephants was recognized by Laithongrien Meepan who founded the Prakochaban Foundation in 1995. With initial support from this…. [read more]

Global Warming Daniel Botkin Delivers a Wholly Term Paper

… Global Warming

Daniel Botkin delivers a wholly ineffective argument in favor of ignoring the impact of global warming, and he uses a number of slick rhetorical devices to distract the reader from the heart of the message. Yet, it is exactly in the heart of that message that we find the compelling reason to set aside short-term self-interest long enough to act in the best interests of the planet. In the grand scheme of things, Botkin is right in that the planet and most life on it will carry on just fine. The problem with climate change is that we -- human beings -- are among the species most at risk from climate change. The best way to frame the argument that we should take…. [read more]

Practicing Quality Care in Saudi Arabia Book Report

… 804). By acknowledging patients' rights, providers show concern and respect for patients. As Al Momani and Al Korashy (2012) show, "failure of nurses and other health care providers to take into account factors observed and reported by patients as important to their nursing care is inconsistent with the notion of patient-centered care and patient empowerment" (p. 42). Treating each patient in the manner that he or she wishes to be treated is what providing quality care is all about. This means that understanding patient needs and interacting with patients in a way that demonstrates respect for the patient's culture, beliefs, and attitudes is a significant part of health care. Administering to symptoms, ailments and illnesses is only one portion of providing care. Because patients are…. [read more]

Traditional Chinese Medicine and Diet for Well being Research Paper

… This perspective summarizes the confidence placed in food therapy by these cultures for many years. Sun continues: "If the food therapy is not enough to treat the disease then use the medicine" -- the idea being that food therapy can go a long way to contain and/or solve the problem in the body -- but the recognition is clear that it is not in every case a cure-al: "The medicinal properties is strong like an army, the army destroys all furiously at the chance. The medicine is just like an army, it beats and pound randomly" (Sun 2003).
