This lesson introduces you to some of the basic ideas which were of great importance to the Founders. They used these ideas when they developed our government. You will learn why they thought we need a government in the first place. You will also learn how they believed governments should be created and what they ought to do. Think of a right you believe all people should have. For example, you probably agree that everyone in the United States has the right to be protected from robbers and burglars. The belief that everyone should have this protection is shared by most people in the United States. We hear about it on television, in the newspaper, and in discussions. Individually or in small groups, explain how you think rights like the one you have identified can be protected. Most people

Nature abhors change. The principle of inertia, one of the most fundamental laws of physics, holds that objects resist changes in their state of motion: If an object is at rest, it will stay at rest until something forces it to budge, and if it s moving, it will keep moving until ground to a halt. That s why spinning makes you dizzy. In the labyrinthine structure of the inner ear, there are three semicircular canals arranged at right angles to one another, so that each senses the movement of your head along a different axis, and all three collaborate to. The canals are filled with a fluid that sloshes around as you move. Your ears sense motion by detecting the way tiny strands of hair lining the canals wave back and forth in this moving liquid, like water plants swaying in a river
There are a number of preventative techniques that will help to prevent throwers elbow, including bracing and strapping, modifying equipment, taking extended rests and even learning new routines for repetitive activities. However, there are three preventative measures that I feel are far more important and effective. Firstly, a thorough and correct warm up will help to prepare the muscles and tendons for any activity to come. Without a proper warm up the muscles and tendons will be tight and stiff. There will be limited blood flow to the forearm area, which will result in a lack of oxygen and nutrients for the muscles. This is a sure-fire recipe for a muscle or tendon injury. Before any activity be sure to thoroughly warm up all the muscles and tendons which will be used during your sport
I get this all the time for some reason. I'm a small girl, look perfectly normal and take care of my appearance (my friends are always calling me "cute") but for some reason I'm always getting glares and comments off people I don't even know. It's almost always other girls. I've only noticed it since coming to uni, where I improved my dress sense and such. For example, earlier today I was browsing for a book in the uni library for a few minutes and the girl sitting at the desk behind me kept glaring at me and huffing for the whole time, even though I was being perfectly quiet. ...
Rome is in a foul mood. ItБs gone from scandal to scandal, some of them truly embarrassing. Last year a major investigation known as Mafia Capitale revealed the cozy relationship between organized crime and Italian politicians. As a result, RomeБs mayor, Ignazio Marino Б not an accomplice, more of a hapless bystander Б resigned in October. Then it got worse. The city is plagued not only by widespread corruption but also by everyday inefficiency and insiderism. Francesco Paolo Tronca, who replaced Mr. Marino, found out that the municipality owns more than 28,000 real estate units, on which the unpaid rents amount to $400 million. Apparently, 85 percent of the tenants donБt care to cough up, or donБt have to. Or they pay $36 a month for a villa with a view over the Colosseum Б or $5. 50 for

Mac users who primarily browse the web with Safari will eventually notice the Flash out-of-date message appearing somewhere in the browser. This happens because the Mac will intentionally disable the Flash player plugin when it has become outdated, preventing any potential security breaches from occurring. As you probably guessed, this just means you need to update the Adobe Flash Player plugin to the latest version, but many users have done just that (or think they have) and still find the Flash out-of-date message appearing all over Safari and around the web. That s what we re aiming to address here, properly installing the latest version of Flash to get the plugin working again in Safari and to resolve that error message. Note: this is limited to Safari for Mac OS X only, and does not
For the first time ever, South Park has missed its deadline, which means there will be no new episode of the long-running Comedy Central animated series tonight. The cable network issued an update today that, due to a power outage, tonight's planned episode, titled "goth Kids 3: Dawn of the Posers" was left unfinished and not ready for air tonight. A rerun will air in its place. If you've seen the documentary, you know that series creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone, with the help of their writers and everyone else involved in putting the show together, usually churn out each episode in about a week's time. Given that it takes a lot longer for some animated shows to produce episodes, that's quite a feat. The benefit of such a narrow window of time is that the show can be as current as it
Why is homeostasis important for cells? Living cells depend on the movement of chemicals around the body. Chemicals such as oxygen, carbon dioxide and dissolved food need to be transported into and out of cells. This is done by the processes of diffusion and osmosis, and these processes depend on the body's water and salt balance, which are maintained by homeostasis. Cells depend on enzymes to speed up the many chemical reactions that keep the cell alive and make it do its job. These enzymes work best at particular temperatures, and so again homeostasis is vital to cells as it maintains a constant body temperature. Many individuals have heard the world homeostasis at one time or another, but what does it really mean? Working as a fine-tuned machine, the human body has a way of keeping its
