In this essay I will be explaining to you three things that I have learnt from presentations during this inquiry. Here are the three presentations that I will be talking about. Mountain biking in the Redwood forest by Moss Stanford. Prisons by Tahuriwakanui, Thomas Poysden and Hoani Lawrence. And
According to google maps, there are approximately ten public schools in the Sunset Park neighborhood. Some of these schools are Sunset Park School, Sunset Park Prep, The Henry Longfellow School, P.S. 503, The Vincent D. Grippo School. My school site is the Vincent D. Grippo school, P.S. 69 and the
Naturalistic observation is a research technique involving the observation of people or objects in their natural environments to gather data. When performing a naturalistic observation, it is key for the researcher to remain unavowed to the subject, or the result of the data could be skewed. When conducting a naturalistic observation to study the exercise times of young adult males versus older adult males, a good place to make observations would be at a gym, a popular hiking trail, or in a populated city (ex: downtown Washington, D.C.) where there are large sidewalks and plenty of room for foot traffic. Next, determine the variables. The measurable variables would be determined by witnessing a subject perform some sort of exercise, or any act that raises the heart rate above its natural rhythm on purpose at different times of day (ex: bike riding, running or jogging, roller blading, weight lifting, swimming, etc.). A record is kept regarding the execution of the variables, and after spending a viable amount of time collecting data from the subjects, the results of the study can be concluded. A possible result of the study could be that it is more common for older adult males to exercise early in the morning, while it is more common for younger adult males to exercise late in the evening.
Space exploration funding has been drastically reduced since the conclusion of the Space Race. Even though the Space Race is no longer relevant, it has positively affected human civilization, and we should continue to invest in space exploration to continue this trend. The first and primary reason we should continue to work with space is to aid industries on earth. Most notable is the use of satellites for purposes such as commercial communications, the GPS system, and meteorology. The second reason is because humans have an inherent hunger for knowledge, and space funding helps us develop technology for seeing what’s beyond earth. Space probes such as New Horizons and telescopes such as the James Webb Telescope have expanded our knowledge
The craving of knowledge is something that has shaped the human race to what it is today. As humans, it's a necessity to have something to kindle a person’s flame of curiosity. Since the beginning of time, the world has always gazed up into the sky on a starry night and asked “what there is out there; what made this stunning view?”, “How immense is this vast expansion of space?”. These inquiries could be answered now that humans are capable of space exploration with the mechanization NASA and other space agencies have now, and will possibly take advantage of in upcoming years. The use of the stars has been very beneficial to humans, whether it’s navigation, religion, or something to spark the imaginations of many. The technology that astronauts
Being outdoors can increase ones overall health in a multitude of ways. But do you know just how much a person can benefit from a little extra time surrounded by nature? Many people are aware that the outdoors can give someone the space they need, to exercise
Astronomy, is for me, why we are even here at all. As humans [and wizards], we owe our lives to discovering our own universe and beyond, it is our utmost dedication that we discover facts and information on everything around us. People have dedicated months, years, to discovering what truly makes us part of the universe, we have achieved and advanced so much just by studying our stars, our solar system and our neighbouring planets.
It has been said that astronomy is unique among branches of magic in that we can work with and learn from muggles as much as our fellow wizards. As a muggleborn, coming to Hogwarts with something recognizable on the schedule, astronomy, has been nice in a world of new and un recognizable things, however exciting they may be. I distinctly remember getting a telescope for Christmas when I was eight years old, and spent hours talking to my dad and studying the sky. The sky does not change depending upon if you are a wizard or muggle, and we are all in pursuit of more information about the amazing universe we live in. However, there are a few factors that are different regarding wizarding astronomy than muggle astronomy. As wizards we can use magic and magical equipment to see farther and more clearly. We can use these unique tools for more accurate
People change as they grow, in the way they look, the way they talk, and the way they act. This is no secret and has been going on since the beginning of time. Today, I was a substitute teacher for the art teacher at Wheatland R-II School, in Wheatland Missouri.
Our new understanding of the solar system and the technology we’ve developed through conducting missions has benefitted our society by helping us understand things about other planets, space, and most importantly help us understand more things about our home, planet Earth.
As the leading outdoor furniture and playset retailer in Alpharetta, GA, Sweetland Outdoor knows that trampolines are all about providing endless outside play opportunities for kids. Like all of their equipment, Sweetland Outdoor considers safety the number-one priority for the trampolines they sell.
The Weatherman, an organization that is now known as the Weather Underground, was organized in 1969 as a faction of Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) that broke with Progressive Labor. They had a specific goal which was to create a clandestine revolutionary party for the overthrow of the U.S. government. The attempts to achieve this was having campaigns of bombings on government buildings through the 1970’s and then it was taking part in actions of Timothy Leary’s jailbreak. Leary has been described as the “most dangerous man in America”. He has been arrested enough to see the inside of 29 different prisons worldwide. With some early events contrived in a three day chaos called the Days of Rage, a series of direct actions by the WUO in
Observation Assignment at a Park Hayden Park was an interesting place for a Freeze-Frame assignment. For those who have not heard of a Freeze-Frame, it is simply sitting in one spot for 15 to 20 minutes observing ones surroundings. So to continue, at first glance, Hayden Park is a typical Valley of the Sun type park. Most of these typical parks have grass, picnic tables, some trees, and usually some sort of sports availability such as a basketball court or soccer field, or both. In addition, the parks also have pleasant surroundings. But Hayden Park is located in South Phoenix, so automatically the typical standard for parks is altered.
This scenario takes place at an indoor playground on a weekday afternoon. The observed family consists of a mother in her mid thirties having lunch with her three children. The children are aged eleven, seven and three. The focus of my observation is the three year old and his mother.
The telescope is an optical instrument designed to make distant objects appear nearer. It contains an arrangement of lenses or mirrors or both that gathers visible light, permitting direct observation or photographic recording of distant objects. (Lacki, B. C. 2011). With the use of telescopes we have been able to learn a lot more about the planets in our universe. It has helped us understand about some of the history of everything around us. Also it has been able to track asteroids and comets or any randomly flying objet in outer space that might become threatening to our planet.
