.... place. Although Westerners condemn it as torture, child abuse and a violation of human rights, it remains a revered rite of passage in parts of Africa, the Middle East and Southeast Asia. According to the World Health Organization, circumcision dates back almost 4,000 years. No one knows exactly how the practice began, though scholars speculate its origins lay somewhere along the Nile Valley. The reasons for performing this procedure are almost as numerous as it's consequences.

.... out in the brain's ventricular zone. Attached to fibers, the neurons travel to the cerebral cortex, which contains the language centers. Here they hit a barrier, stop and take their place in layers above previously deposited neurons, (which is normal). In the brains of dyslexics, how-ever, there are breaches in the barrier and the neurons enter them, leaving clumps of nerve cells called ectopias, which appear to interface with the brain's ability to receive and transmit certain messages. They are now finding that dyslexia can run in the family. If you or your other relatives have dyslex .....

Observed Distribution Of South American Relief Features
Number of words: 855 - Number of pages: 4

.... in the direction of the cell. How does a ‘solid’ mantle move? The mantle may be solid but, as with most solids, it will deform if long-term stress is applied. Presently, there are more than fourteen plates in the Earth’s crust. Upwelling hot magma flows out from mid-ocean ridges and then cools down when exposed to the cooled environment outside; the layer of cooled magma forms the lithosphere. When magma flows out from the ridges, the crust is fractured and a new ocean floor is built spreading perpendicularly away from the ridge. Because of this constant upwelling, the ocean is relatively sh .....

Acid Rain, Effects And Causes
Number of words: 1954 - Number of pages: 8

.... at as an interesting situation, rather than a growing problem. Since that time, much research has gone into identifying the sources of acid rain and the damage that it causes. As research continued, the situation reached catastrophe proportions in the late 1970's. By this time, thousands of lakes in Canada and Scandinavia had been declared dead, devoid of life, while emissions of acid gasses continued to rise. Acid Rain Chemistry As mentioned earlier, the term acid rain is used to describe a variety of different types of acidic deposition. These include "wet" deposition such as rain, snow .....

The Depletion Of Ozone Layer
Number of words: 2615 - Number of pages: 10

.... harmful radiation. The ozone layer is important because it absorbs most of the damaging ultra-violet radiation from the sun before it reaches ground level, where it can cause sun burn, skin cancer and cataracts. Research suggests that any additional UV-B (ultra-violet radiation) at ground level could depress our bodies’ immune systems, damage the natural food chain and reduce crop yields. Although ozone makes up less that 1ppm of all the gases in our planet’s atmosphere, but it is essential to life on earth. Scientists assume that in the early days of the earth’s evolution there was no atmos .....

Early Synthetic Polymers
Number of words: 573 - Number of pages: 3

.... long before we really even knew what a polymer was. The very first came about when a scientist reacted cellulose, in the form of cotton, with nitric acid. The result was cellulose nitrate. Cellulose nitrate, also called gun cotton, turned out to be a powerful explosive. It soon replaced common gunpowder as the explosive charge in the ammunition for rifles and artillery. Cellulose nitrate was also used to make an early polymer containing composite material, safety glass. This was a sandwich made of a sheet of cellulose nitrate in between two layers of glass. The sheet of cellulose nitra .....

Deinonychus Antirrhopus
Number of words: 661 - Number of pages: 3

.... central Montana during the 1960’s. It was a carnivorous, bird-like creature with characteristics similar to that of a Velociraptor ( one of the stars from Jurassic Park ). This fearsome beast was quite a ravage hunter. The Deinonychus attacked its larger prey in packs and often were successful in doing so because of their menacing claw. By hunting in groups, members of the Deinonychus pack have brought down dinosaurs much lager than themselves. Proof of this occurrence has been found today due the discovery of several individuals of Deinonychus with the skeleton of a large plant eatin .....
