JFK Assassination Picture this: a warm, sunny, November day in Dallas, Texas. Everyone in the town is excited because the president was making a stop there and a parade was to be held. The streets were packed as the limousine, carrying President Kennedy, his wife, Jackie, the governor, and his wife, passed by slowly. While the president waved to the crowd, everything seemed to be well and good. Now picture the same scene, a few minutes later: the crowd is in hysteria, no one knows what is going

Ether Kunal Patel U.S. History I Mrs. Farrington The discovery of ether was the greatest American discovery because it helped many to overcome the pain of surgery and helped to form the Theory of Relativity. Without ether, surgery could be one of the most feared things in the world for it would be extremely painful without any type of anesthetic and we may have not known as much as we do about physics today. The substance ether itself was originally discovered somewhere in the 4th century B.C. b
Why Is There Gravity?
Why Is There Gravity?
Why Is There Gravity? When you pick up a stone and release it falls to the ground. This seemingly simple concept has been known throughout history as gravitation. Isaac Newton managed to explain gravity in terms of its effects, but few have come up with a working explanation for the driving force behind it. The mysterious nature of some of the more peculiar effects of gravity, as well as the simple ones, indicate that explaining why there is gravity will be a long, difficult, yet intriguing task

When the first car was made (Model-T Ford) it was only one color (black) with no radio, no heater, basically it was just a little motor on four wheels. Today all cars in North America come with heaters, radios and options like air-conditioning , cruise control, CD players, in some Mercedes you can get TV’s in the back of the front seats with

GENDER DISCRIMINATION What is discrimination? It is that anytime a distinction is made in favor of or against a person or thing on the basis of an unfavorable opinion formed beforehand. We have all heard examples of such treatment, and most of us have experienced it ourselves. Unfortunately, most of it occurs in the very places that should be above it, beginning in school and continuing into the workplace. In addition to age, gender is one of the universal dimensions on which status differences

Evolution
Evolution
Evolution Evolution and philosophy have a relationship as old as the idea of evolution itself. This is a partly due to the fact that science and philosophy only separated about the time evolutionary theories were being first proposed, but also because - especially in the Darwinian context - evolution was opposed to many cherished philosophical doctrines. The first main criticisms of evolution lay in the idea that species were eternal types, and so by definition species could not change. More rec

Sound Sound is a fundamental element in life for almost all humans and animals. So many things can be accomplished with sound. Music, one of the most important art forms, can be played hundreds, even thousands of different ways by manipulating sound. Our main form of communication is talking and listening to others speak. Sound can be explained through waves in a wave tank or through waves on a spring. All forms of waves have certain characteristics, which make sound waves no different than wate

Laser light is an entirely new kind of light, more brilliant, more intense than anything found in nature. Laser light can be so powerful that it can vaporize any known material on earth in a fraction of a second. It can bore holes in the toughest metals or easily pierce the hardness of a diamond. In contrast, less powerful, exquisitely precise beams from other kinds of lasers can be used t

General Theory of Relativity The speed of light can never be exceeded. A renowned science authority pointed out that, although speed is measured by numbers, and one can always be added to any number, 186,000 miles per second is the absolute limit (Asimov, 235). Isaac Newton’s theory of relativity said that if a man were walking three miles per hour south on a train that was traveling one-hundred miles an hour north, the man would be traveling ninety-seven miles an hour north relative to the Eart

Can we model, at least approximately, human personality, or if we can model human personality, does such a model have any value or interest? I

At this type of boundary, two plates are moving towards each other. Neither plate is subducted into the mantle. Many things happen when plates drive into each other. Including volcanic activity. When two continents are on the edges of plates, the land crumples, and is deformed. There are numerous earthquakes as these mountains are formed. When two
