This section of the Research Mindedness resource explores some of the areas that are tied strongly to social care research. It looks at: In we said that the use of research in social work is interdisciplinary - that is, it uses research and research skills which arise from other disciplines such as sociology, anthropology and psychology. However, this does not mean that social work research lacks distinction or focus. In a paper entitled 'Is social work research distinctive? ', Shaw (2007) uses a definition from the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) to demonstrate that several of the criteria which define social work research - ethical awareness, a reflexive consideration of the place of the researcher in the research, and a sensitivity to the political and social context - can
An education in Environmental Science provides students with an understanding of Earth s living and physical environment, processes that operate within the environment, as well as the nature and mitigation of human impact on the environment. Through the application of scientific tools and principles, environmental science addresses a variety of issues related to our everyday needs and the environment in which we live from local to global scales. Environmental Science is unique amongst the sciences through the application of all scienctific tools to the natural world furthering our understanding of the environment. If you wish, you can specialize in a variety of concentrations through the application of the scientific tools of geology, geography, chemistry, biology or physics. Field work,
My last post, seems to have struck a chord with many. Leave it to the Care2 community to enlighten, elevate and express their opinions on why people do and do not recycle. Most of us believe that recycling is ethically the right thing to do. From the comments on the post, it was evident that sadly, we all seem to have friends, family and acquaintances that do not recycle. Below are some of the reasons why people do not recycle and why they should: 1. Recycling is inconvenient. This seems to be the number one reason why people dont recyclethey dont want to put in the extra effort. Some places have no pick-up. Some people say that they just cant be bothered. Is that a good enough reason? 2. I do not have enough space in my home to recycle. The lack of space is an issue for many. People
Equations for free fall can be used for calculating acceleration due to gravity. The equation, h = gt 2 can be solved for g, as, g Experiment Conducted to find Acceleration due to gravity: An object of considerable weight (because the air resistance can be neglected), be dropped from fairly tall building whose height is accurately measured. The observer at the top of the building switches on a digital timer at the same instant he drops the object. The observer at ground level switches off the same timer when the object hits the ground and records the time of fall. Plugging the values of h and t, the acceleration due to gravity can be calculated. ...
A weekly dose of education in the ocean. This is the second in a five-part series about the polar bear s adaptations to the Arctic environment. Polar bears are supremely to their environment they have a number of traits that help them cope with snow, ice, and below-freezing temperatures. They are more likely to overheat than to become hypothermic, because of the following characteristics. Florian Schulz, from his book, To The Arctic. Large Size. Polar bears are the world s largest land-based carnivore. Males can get up to 1500 lbs (almost 700 kg) even bigger than their hulking cousins and this helps them retain their body heat. As Dr. Andrew Derocher explains in his recently published book, Polar Bears, A Complete Guide to Their Biology and Behavior, this is because large animals have a
What are antibiotics? Antibiotics are generally defined as agents that kill bacteria, or inhibit their growth. Although originally sourced from natural products, many common antibiotics used in labs today are semi-synthetic or fully synthetic compounds. Antibiotics can be categorized based on whether they directly kill bacteria (bactericidal) or slow growth/prevent cell division (bacteriostatic); however, the distinction between the two categories may be a bit of a gray area as some bacteriostatic reagents can kill bacteria when used at high concentrations (and vice versa). Looking around the lab, you'll likely find many of the antibiotics listed in the table below. Note, in this post we'll focus primarily on antibiotics against Gram negative bacteria. In f uture posts, we'll detail
Rivers and river valleys typically flow to a large water source such as a lake, sea or the ocean. The end of the river is known as the "mouth. " In some rivers, such as the Nile River in Egypt, the mouths have silt deposits. These silt deposits build up to create a delta area and also create fertile farmland. One of the most well-known examples of using a river to further a civilization is the Egyptians' use of the Nile River. Without the Nile, none of the Egyptian achievements would have happened. ...
There were 58,209 American deaths in the Vietnam war. 10,875 of them were not combat related. 1,207 died of drowning or suffocation 482 died of illness. 118 died of Malaria. 42 died from having a stroke. 22 died of Hepatitis. 382 committed suicide. Some came down with illness from exposure to Agent Orange. 1,326 died from misadventure. "A few were lucky enough to be stationed at a tropical posting and received jungle training before being sent to Vietnam" ( The Westheider, ". numerous miseries of jungle warfare: the heat, the humidity, the leeches and mosquitoes, and the darkness and claustrophobic environment created by thick, triple-canopy jungle" ( Westheider, "In a tropical or semitropical environment of triple-canopy forests, swamps, marshes, or densely forested mountains, tanks,
Before being branded as Бvicious,Б Pit Bulls were known as nanny dogs Б dogs who love children dearly. You may wonder: how did Pit Bulls get their bad reputation? LetБs face it, all have their bad eggs. President RooseveltБs Bull Terrier bit off a French ambassadorБs pants. RCAБs Nipper, a Bull Terrier mix, reportedly got his name by frequently nipping visitorsБ legs. But these dogsБ БbadБ reputations seem light compared with todayБs Pit Bull image problems. Pit Bulls are notorious for deadly attacks against kids and adults Б including the fatal mauling of Pamela Marie Devitt in 2013. Today, modern Pit Bulls have been ostracized and outlawed in some communities across the United States. Los Angeles animal shelters are flooded with Pit Bulls among other breeds.
