Training employees is a fundamental element of a corporations success
Training employees is a fundamental element of a corporations success. A company succeeds only as well as the people running it can perform. This training process can cover many skills and go into many areas of expertise. One key element that has only recently come into action is an outdoor- based experiential training program. Commonly called ropes courses, wilderness courses or adventure learning programs have been in use in the USA since the early 1980's, and by organizations in the UK sin

Ptolemy Introduction In ancient times there were many great ideas which began to shape the way man perceived his environment. However, there were few minds who were able to put all of these ideas together. One of these minds belonged to Claudius Ptolemy, or just Ptolemy as he is commonly referred to. We know almost nothing of the chronology of Ptolemy's life, and we don't even know his birth or death dates. We do know, though, about his ideas in several fields, which include geography, astronom

Nazis in popular film
Nazis in popular film Nazism is a popular subject for all film producers. Some like the film to be graphical representation, whereas other producers prefer to show Nazis in a slightly comical light. I will be writing about these four films; The Lion King, Schindler’s List, Triumph of the Will and Caboret, and how the directors use camera angles to portray people in different ways. Triumph of the Will was a pro-Nazi film. Directed by Leni Riefenstahl in 1934, it shows Hitler in a way that few fi

ASTEROIDS
ASTEROIDS. Asteroids are one of the many small or minor rocky planetoids that are a member of the solar system and that move in elliptical orbits primarily between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter. The largest representatives of asteroids are 1 Ceres, with a diameter of about 1,003 km, 2 Pallas and 4 Vesta, with diameters of about 550 km. About 200 asteroids have diameters of more than 97 km, and thousands of smaller ones exist. The total mass of all asteroids in the solar system is much less than

EARTH The Earth, man's home, is a planet. The Earth has special characteristics, and these are important to man. It is the only planet known to have the right temperature and the right atmosphere to support the kind of environments and natural resources in which plants and man and other animals can survive. This fact is so important to man that he has developed a special science called ecology, which deals with the dependence of all living things will continue to survive on the planet. Many mill
About oxygen
About oxygen
about oxygen Oxygen is a Group 16 element. Oxygen is the third most abundant element found in the sun, and it plays a part in the carbon-nitrogen cycle, one process responsible for stellar energy production. Oxygen in excited states is responsible for the bright red and yellow-green colours of the aurora. The atmosphere of Mars contains about 0.15% oxygen. About two thirds of the human body, and nine tenths of water, is oxygen. The gas is colourless, odourless, and tasteless. Liquid and solid o

No golden eagle, warm from the stamping press of the mint, is more sharply impressed with its image and superscription than was the formative period of our government by the genius and personality of Thomas Jefferson. Standing on the threshold of the nineteenth century, no one who attempted to peer down the shadowy vista, saw more clearly than he the possibilities, the perils, the pitfalls and the achievements that were within the grasp of the Nation. None was inspired by purer patriotism. None

The Mystery of Area 51 130 miles North of Las Vegas in Rachel, Nevada, on the shores of a dried up lake, lies an area Americans have pondered for over 50 years. This place, which is behind miles of barren, dry desert and surrounded by barbed wire fences, is a place which houses the unknown. Signs which state: “ No trespassing” and “ Anyone crossing this point will be shot on the spot”, are posted outside this lonely, desolate ground (Misage 2). What occupies this dry, desert area?

UFOs are a hot, controversial subject. We still don't know what these objects are, or whether they really exist. Conventional wisdom tells us that the majority of ufo sightings are false reports, fueled by mass hysteria, and people who tend to be mentally unstable. What if we believed UFOs exist? How do we rationally explain UFO behavior? Witnesses report time, and time again incredible right angle turns at enormous velocities, and instant stops.

Project Mercury Project Mercury, the first manned U.S. space project, became an official NASA program on October 7, 1958. The Mercury Program was given two main but broad objectives: 1. to investigate man’s ability to survive and perform in the space environment and 2. to develop basic space technology and hardware for manned space flight programs to come. NASA also had to find astronauts to fly the spacecraft. In 1959 NASA asked the U.S. military for a list of their members who met certain qual
Sunspots
Sunspots
Sunspots Sunspots are dark spots on the sun. The Inner area is the umbra. The outer and lighter area is the penumbra. They are also very magnetic. They are darker because they are lower in Temperature. The umbra is about 11,000mi. Around, the penumbra is about Double that, but they are often larger than the earth. The number of sunspots varies over a 11 year period in which the sun spots move from the top and move their way downward. As they move downward the number increases. They diminish as t

Until the sixteenth century when Capernicus figured out that the Earth was another planet, which revolved around the sun, Greek astronomers thought the Earth was the center of the solar system. Also Earth is the only planet that its name didn’t come from Greek/Roman mythology. When earth was first discovered, astronomers were only able to study it with out spacecraft.

More exact explanations of the phenomenon could not be given until modern particle physics were developed, and knowledge about details in the earth’s magneto

Science Assignment Astronomy 1) A supernova is an explosion, triggered by the collapse and explosion of a massive star. There are two types of supernova explosion in the universe, called Type I and Type II. The remains of the core of a star that has gone supernova is a neutron star. These stars give off radio waves called pulsars. When a huge star goes supernova, the gravity of the core becomes so strong that even light cannot escape it. This is called a Black hole. On occasion, throughout the

The Effects of UFO's on People By Steve Edwards Almost every civilization in history that has kept a written history has recorded the sightings of strange objects and lights in the skies. These objects have been described as glowing wheels, colored balls of light, and disk shaped objects. Today unexplained aerial phenomena are generally referred to as unidentified flying objects (UFO's) or flying saucers. The effects of extra terrestrial sightings can have an adverse effect on people if influen

Our Solar System at a Glance INTRODUCTION From our small world we have gazed upon the cosmic ocean for untold thousands of years. Ancient astronomers observed points of light that appeared to move among the stars. They called these objects planets, meaning wanderers, and named them after Roman deities -- Jupiter, king of the gods; Mars, the god of war; Mercury, messenger of the gods; Venus, the god of love and beauty, and Saturn, father of Jupiter and god of agriculture. The stargazers also obs

Fusion reactions are inhibited by the electrical repulsive force that
Fusion reactions are inhibited by the electrical repulsive force that acts between two positively charged nuclei. For fusion to occur, the two nuclei must approach each other at high speed to overcome the electrical repulsion and attain a sufficiently small separation (less than one-trillionth of a centimeter) that the short-range strong nuclear force dominates. For the production of useful amounts of energy, a large number of nuclei must under go fusion: that is to say, a gas of fusing nuclei
