## Briefly describe what your recommended daily allowance based upon your profile (sex, age, physical status, etc.) should be, your present intake estimate, and your action plan (adjustment in diet, etc.).

TASK: Select a vitamin or mineral and address the associated question(s).  AVOID DUPLICATES–scan your peers’ posts before making your selection.  To that end, be sure to label your subject heading with the selected vitamin/mineral. Imagine you are attending your yearly health risk assessment. When you came to the appointment, you thought you had a proper […]

## Are you equipped to care for children who could be suffering from undiagnosed learning and behavior disorders?

Effective leaders of change are individuals who are passionate and constantly strive to make improvements in the world, community, and/or work environment. This type of leader does not need any added motivation because their desire to create change is all that is needed to keep pushing forward. In my previous work experience I have worked […]

## Explain briefly how the processes of slab pull and ridge push help drive plate motion

(1) With the aid of neat, informative, well-labeled sketch(es) explain the following regarding mid-ocean ridges and the process of seafloor spreading: (One full page) How and where oceanic crust forms? How and why the age of the oceanic crust changes as you move away from the mid-ocean ridge? How and why the thickness of sediment […]

## : Summarize the steps and the final dramatic outcome of the experiment (do not explain the science behind what is happening in each of the steps this paragraph). (graphics will add greatly to the discussion here).

1. The experiment video Imploding Can (2:39) applies several concepts we have studied so far in this course, but focuses on the concept of pressure gradient force presented in module 5. After watching the video (several times, if needed), construct an engaging 3-paragraph initial post that addresses the following points: · Paragraph 1: Summarize the steps and the final dramatic outcome of the […]

## Explain, in words, the mathematical relationship between the force of the wind and the wind speed as discussed in the Focus Topic, emphasizing the significance of the “squared” part of the relationship.

· Paragraph 1:  Explain, in words, the mathematical relationship between the force of the wind and the wind speed as discussed in the Focus Topic, emphasizing the significance of the “squared” part of the relationship. · Paragraph 2:  Based on the definition of pressure (P) as force (F) per unit area (A), or P = F/A, explain the significance of area to […]

## Discuss population growth factors and how their population size can be increased (helped) or limited (controlled) within an ecosystem.

(Need in 3 hours – 1 paragraph is fine) Provide an example of an endangered species or of a “nuisance” species (be sure to identify which category they are in & provide a picture). What impact has their population decrease or increase had within the ecosystem? Discuss population growth factors and how their population size can be increased […]

## Some theorists envisioned that we would see a more pronounced warming of minimum temperatures than maximum temperatures.  This might result in a reduced range of temperatures.  What trends does the data show?

Do we see an overall warming of the environment?  Some theorists envisioned that we would see a more pronounced warming of minimum temperatures than maximum temperatures.  This might result in a reduced range of temperatures.  What trends does the data show?  Many theories that look at global warming envisage more drought and less surplus water […]

## Explain the relationship between the saturated zone, the water table, a ground water well and the cone of depression, all within the sub-surface.

Describe the paths of water through the hydrologic cycle.  Explain the processes and the energy gains and losses involved in the changes of water between its 3 states.  Operationally, we often most concerned with water does when it reaches the solid earth, both on the surface and in the sub-surface.  Explain the relationship between the […]

## What is the difference between the older continental drift theory by Wegener and the more recent plate tectonic theory?

Describe the general sequence of events in continental drift since the time of 5 separate continents 450 million years ago.  What is the difference between the older continental drift theory by Wegener and the more recent plate tectonic theory?  Plate tectonics theory explains many seemingly unrelated phenomena.  Explain how the patterns of volcanoes and earthquakes […]

## Choose your favorite coastline (or least favorite) and describe how it is affected by those factors.

The coastlines of the world are constantly being impacted by waves, currents and tides. Choose your favorite coastline (or least favorite) and describe how it is affected by those factors. How might these factors affect the coastline as sea level rises? You should include introductory information about how those processes are formed. Your paper should […]
