replied the topic children in a family? created by beauty1

The one thing you can bet your paycheck on is the firstborn and second-born in any given family are going to be different," says Dr. Kevin Leman, a psychologist who has studied birth order since 1967 and author of The Birth Order Book: Why You Are the Way You Are (Revell). But how is it that a gregarious comedian and a reclusive, introspective thinker can be so different yet share the same genes? Psychologists like Leman believe the secret to sibling personality differences lies in birth order -- whether you're a first-, middle-, last-born, or only child -- and how parents treat their child because of it.

Meri Wallace, a child and family therapist for over 20 years and author of Birth Order Blues (Owl Books), agrees. "Some of it has to do with the way the parent relates to the child in his spot, and some of it actually happens because of the spot itself. Each spot has unique challenges," she explains.

Birth Order + Parenting = Behavior

Simply by virtue of being a couple's first child, a firstborn will naturally be a sort of experiment for the new parents, a mixture of instinct and trial-and-error. Perhaps this will cause the parents to become by-the-book caregivers who are extremely attentive, stringent with rules, and overly neurotic about the minutiae. This in turn may cause the child to become a perfectionist, always striving to please his parents.

In contrast, if the couple decides to have a second child, they might raise their second-born with less of an iron first due to their experiences raising their firstborn. They might also be less attentive to the second-born since there's another child competing for attention, and they probably will be less inclined to impulsively dial 911 every time the child breaks a sweat. This may cause the second-born to be less of a perfectionist but more of a people-pleaser due to the lack of attention he gets in comparison to his older siblin.

replied the topic why... why... why...... created by kings60

Guns are so negative. So are bombs. So is saying no, stop, halt, don’t go there, shut up, be quiet, go away. So are walls, roadblocks—constraints of any kind.

I don’t mean they’re bad or wrong necessarily. They’re negative in that they negate. They stop, end or reverse things.

We all know that two wrongs don’t make a right. But we also know that two no’s do make a yes. Two negatives make a positive, both in language and math. What’s up with that?

Apparently no and wrong aren’t the same, a point that has enormous implications for how we think about peace and conflict from global war to interpersonal kerfuffles.

Guns are powerful negators. They are almost exclusively destructive. It’s hard to imagine a way guns could be used to construct something. They stop growth, and the pacifist impulse would be to eliminate them altogether. Why have something destructive around at all?

We need negators because two negatives make a positive. We need the ability to destroy bad things, antibodies to destroy germs, chemo to kill cancer, guns to kill killers, shut-ups to stop jerks, walls to keep out marauders, bombs to stop tyrants.

You can allocate a small percentage of your revenue to marketing and see its ROI first. But, I strongly recommend that you get branding done first. Define the brand. Get robust brand strategy. Revisit the packaging design, marketing collaterals etc.
Branding will give you more ROI and higher conversions per dollar spent in getting customers.

replied the topic Is there intelligent life elsewhere in the universe? created by player

The distances separating the stars are so vast that it would take a very advanced civilization—perhaps thousands or even millions of years more advanced than ours—to bridge those distances. In other words, any extraterrestrial civilization that visited us, hypothetically or in reality, would be using a technology that we can only dream about here on planet Earth.

Most life forms in outer space are probably microbial, but a handful of them may be advanced enough to actually reach us. Now, from their perspective, we humans are the microbial life and we would simply not be that interesting to them. I think this is one reason aliens don’t come here and say, “Take me to your leader, Earth man.” An extremely advanced civilization visiting humans would almost be like humans going down to an ant hill and telling them: "I bring you computers, I bring you nuclear power, I bring you knowledge…" Most of the time we simply step on them instead.

Stephen Hawking’s recent statements in his new series “Into the Universe” on the Discovery Channel have stirred up quite a few news stories in the past week. In fact, I will be appearing on Larry King Live tonight (4/30) at 9 p.m. EST to speak about these statements. In the series, Hawking says: “If intelligent alien life forms do exist out in the vastness of space, they might not be the friendly cosmic neighbors the people of Earth are looking for. Such advanced aliens would perhaps become nomads, looking to conquer and colonize whatever planets they could reach. If so, it makes sense for them to exploit each new planet for material to build more spaceships so they could move on. Who knows what the limits would be?” Hawking adds: “We only have to look at ourselves to see how intelligent life might develop into something we wouldn’t want to meet. I imagine they might exist in massive ships…having used up all the resources from their home planet. Such advanced aliens would perhaps become nomads, looking to conquer and colonize whatever planets they can reach.” In closing, he says that all of our efforts to search and contact aliens could ultimately end in our own destruction.

replied the topic Autopolyploid and Allopolyploid created by noor1391

Sympatric speciation is the process by which new species arise from a common ancestor while in the same general area. They are not separated by a geographic structure that keeps them from mating. The idea that different species can arise from a common ancestor in the same place is still up for debate because it is unlikely that species will diverge because they will often interbreed, undoing speciation.
However, sympatric speciation can be observed in plants. There are two types: allopolyploid speciation and autopolyploid speciation. Allopolyploid speciation is the "hybridization of two different species that live in the same area" (Coyne, 186). This means that two different species end up mating, producing a hybrid. However, in order for this to be actual speciation, the hybrid must be infertile with the two species that gave rise to it. If plant A mates with plant B to produce hybrid plant C, then in order for it to be true speciation, plant C must not be able to reproduce with plant A or plant B. This most likely occurs when the two parent plants have different numbers of chromosomes. Therefore, in order to be able to produce viable, nonsterile offspring, the number of chromosomes in the hybrid would have to double. Then, this hybrid would be fertile, but unable to reproduce with the two species of plants that gave rise to it. This is allopolyploid speciation. An example of this is in species of plants in the genus Arabidopsis. Also, wheat is a common example of allopolyploid speciation, arising from three separate species.

The other type of sympatric speciation is autopolyploid speciation. Autopolyploid speciation is a process in which a new species arises when the number of chromosomes in a single species is doubled. The offspring has twice the chromosomes and thus cannot mate with the original species, however, it can still reproduce with other autopolyploid plants. Potatoes are an example of autopolyploids.

In the case that creationists and ID proponents make that evolution cannot be observed, therefore, cannot be true. I say have faith...
Or, you could just observe simple sympatric speciation in plants. New species of plants arise due to mutations in the number of chromosomes. This can be tested for and observed. New species arise, sounds like evolution to me.

I was 9 years old in September 1968 and my mom took me and my siblings to a Nixon rally in Charlotte after school one day. It was 95F, muggy, and we waited three hours for the ratfucker to show up, because we got there early so I could be on the rope line and shake his meaty paw.
Finally his circus pulls up, he leaps out of the car, and from 30 feet away I could see he was as sweaty as a pig hiding in a kosher deli. And I reached my little hand towards him, so I could tell my kids one day that I shook the hand of the future president of the United States, and hollered, "Shake my hand, Mr. Nixon!"
Richard Fucking Milhouse Fucking Nixon, the Fuck, reached right over my 9 year old head and shook the hand of an eligible voter behind me.
My head ended up inside his stinking, sweaty coat, jammed into his stinking, sweaty armpit, until he pulled away to continue shaking hands with people old enough to do something for him, like vote.
I laughed aloud with glee the day that bastard was forced to resign.

replied the topic sub phyla of phylum chordata created by noor1391

Chordates (/ˈkɔrdeɪts/) are animals possessing a notochord, a hollow dorsal nerve cord, pharyngeal slits, an endostyle, and a post-anal tail for at least some period of their life cycles. Taxonomically, the phylum includes the subphyla Vertebrata, which includes mammals, fish, amphibians, reptiles and birds; Tunicata, which includes salps and sea squirts; and Cephalochordata, comprising the lancelets. Members of the phylum Chordata are bilaterally symmetric, deuterostome coelomates, and the vertebrate chordates display segmentation.

Hemichordata, which includes the acorn worms, has been presented as a fourth chordate subphylum, but it now is usually treated as a separate phylum. It, along with the phylum Echinodermata, which includes starfish, sea urchins, sea cucumbers and their kin, are the chordates' closest relatives. Primitive chordates are known from at least as early as the Cambrian explosion.

Of the more than 65,000 living species of chordates, about half are bony fish of the class Osteichthyes. The world's largest and fastest animals, the blue whale and peregrine falcon respectively, are chordates, as are humans.
Attempts to work out the evolutionary relationships of the chordates have produced several hypotheses. The current consensus is that chordates are monophyletic, meaning that the Chordata include all and only the descendants of a single common ancestor, which is itself a chordate, and that craniates' nearest relatives are cephalochordates. All of the earliest chordate fossils have been found in the Early Cambrian Chengjiang fauna, and include two species that are regarded as fish, which implies they are vertebrates. Because the fossil record of early chordates is poor, only molecular phylogenetics offers a reasonable prospect of dating their emergence. However, the use of molecular phylogenetics for dating evolutionary transitions is controversial.

It has also proved difficult to produce a detailed classification within the living chordates. Attempts to produce evolutionary "family trees" give results that differ from traditional classes because several of those classes are not monophyletic. As a result, vertebrate classification is in a state of flux[3]
Origin of name

Although the name Chordata is attributed to William Bateson (1885), it was already in prevalent use by 1880. Ernst Haeckel described a taxon comprising tunicates, cephalochordates, and vertebrates in 1866. Though he used the German vernacular form, it is allowed under the ICZN code because of its subsequent latinization.[2]

Anatomy of the cephalochordate Amphioxus. Bolded items are components of all chordates at some point in their lifetimes, and distinguish them from other phyla.

Chordates form a phylum of creatures that are based on a bilateral body plan,[4] and is defined by having at some stage in their lives all of the following:[5]

A notochord, a fairly stiff rod of cartilage that extends along the inside of the body. Among the vertebrate sub-group of chordates the notochord develops into the spine, and in wholly aquatic species this helps the animal to swim by flexing its tail.
A dorsal neural tube. In fish and other vertebrates, this develops into the spinal cord, the main communications trunk of the nervous system.
Pharyngeal slits. The pharynx is the part of the throat immediately behind the mouth. In fish, the slits are modified to form gills, but in some other chordates they are part of a filter-feeding system that extracts particles of food from the water in which the animals live.
Post-anal tail. A muscular tail that extends backwards behind the anus.
An endostyle. This is a groove in the ventral wall of the pharynx. In filter-feeding species it produces mucus to gather food particles, which helps in transporting food to the esophagus.[6] It also stores iodine, and may be a precursor of the vertebrate thyroid gland.[5]
one of the three subdivisions of chordates, have distinct skulls - including hagfish, which have no vertebrae. Michael J. Benton comments, "craniates are characterized by their heads, just as chordates, or possibly all deuterostomes, are by their tails". [7]

Most are vertebrates, in which the notochord is replaced by the spinal column,[8] which consists of a series of bony or cartilaginous cylindrical vertebrae, generally with neural arches that protect the spinal cord and with projections that link the vertebrae. Hagfish have incomplete braincases and no vertebrae, and are therefore not regarded as vertebrates,[9] but as members of the craniates, the group from which vertebrates are thought to have evolved.[10] The position of lampreys is ambiguous. They have complete braincases and rudimentary vertebrae, and therefore may be regarded as vertebrates and true fish.[11] However, molecular phylogenetics, which uses biochemical features to classify organisms, has produced both results that group them with vertebrates and others that group them with hagfish.[12]

replied the topic Epigynous ,perigynous and hypogynous created by noor1391

In the flowering plants, an ovary is a part of the female reproductive organ of the flower or gynoecium. Specifically, it is the part of the pistil which holds the ovule(s) and is located above or below or at the point of connection with the base of the petals and sepals. The pistil may be made up of one carpel or of several fused carpels (e.g. tricarpel), and therefore the ovary can contain part of one carpel or parts of several fused carpels. Above the ovary is the style and the stigma, which is where the pollen lands and germinates to grow down through the style to the ovary, and, for each individual pollen grain, to fertilize one individual ovule. Some wind pollinated flowers have much reduced and modified ovaries.
A fruit is the ripened ovary or ovaries—together with seeds—from one or more flowers. The fruits of a plant are responsible for dispersing the seeds that contain the embryo and protecting the seeds as well. In many species, the fruit incorporates some surrounding tissues, or is dispersed with some non-fruit tissues.
Classification based on position
Ovary insertion: I superior II half-inferior III inferior. a androecium g gynoecium p petals s sepals r receptacle. The insertion point is where a, p, and s converge.

The terminology of the positions of ovaries is determined by the insertion point, where the other floral parts (perianth and androecium) come together and attach to the surface of the ovary.[1] If the ovary is situated above the insertion point, it is superior; if below, inferior.
Superior ovary

A superior ovary is an ovary attached to the receptacle above the attachment of other floral parts. A superior ovary is found in types of fleshy fruits such as true berries, drupes, etc. A flower with this arrangement is described as hypogynous. An example is Hypericum calycinum.
Half-inferior ovary

A half-inferior ovary (also known as “half-superior”, “subinferior,” or “partially inferior,”) is embedded or surrounded by the receptacle.[2] This occurs in flowers of the Lythraceae family, which includes the Crape Myrtles. Such flowers are termed perigynous or half-epigynous. In some classifications, half-inferior ovaries are not recognized and are instead grouped with either the superior or inferior ovaries.
Inferior ovary

An inferior ovary lies below the attachment of other floral parts. A pome is a type of fleshy fruit that is often cited as an example, but close inspection of some pomes (such as Pyracantha) will show that it is really a half-inferior ovary. Flowers with inferior ovaries are termed epigynous. Some examples of flowers with an inferior ovary are orchids (inferior capsule), Fuchsia (inferior berry), Asteraceae (inferior achene-like fruit, called a cypsela).

More specifically, a half-inferior ovary has nearly equal portions of ovary above and below the insertion point. Other varying degrees of inferiority can be described by other fractions. For instance, a "one-fifth inferior ovary" has approximately one fifth of its length under the insertion point. Likewise, only one quarter portion of a "three-quarters inferior ovary" is above the insertion.

replied the topic stars........???????????? created by moniter

The scientific name for the twinkling of stars is stellar scintillation (or astronomical scintillation). Stars twinkle when we see them from the Earth's surface because we are viewing them through thick layers of turbulent (moving) air in the Earth's atmosphere.

Stars (except for the Sun) appear as tiny dots in the sky; as their light travels through the many layers of the Earth's atmosphere, the light of the star is bent (refracted) many times and in random directions (light is bent when it hits a change in density - like a pocket of cold air or hot air). This random refraction results in the star winking out (it looks as though the star moves a bit, and our eye interprets this as twinkling).

Stars closer to the horizon appear to twinkle more than stars that are overhead - this is because the light of stars near the horizon has to travel through more air than the light of stars overhead and so is subject to more refraction. Also, planets do not usually twinkle, because they are so close to us; they appear big enough that the twinkling is not noticeable (except when the air is extremely turbulent).

Stars would not appear to twinkle if we viewed them from outer space (or from a planet/moon that didn't have an atmosphere).

replied the topic girls and dietting..??? created by bhatti

When I began the interview with Ricky Williams, I introduced the idea of coincidence. He told me there's no such thing as coincidence, that everything is tied to the past and the present connects to the future.

So I applied that to his situation. He has been suspended from the National Football League for his fourth substance abuse violation and failed to overturn the verdict in an appeal. Within hours the Argos placed Williams on their negotiation list -- beating the Montreal Alouettes, who also considered the move, in the process -- allowing them the exclusive right to try to sign him. After almost a month the Argos finally received approval from the Miami Dolphins, to whom Williams is under contract for two more years. The Argos are trying to promote messages of anti-violence, anti-bullying and anti-drugs and believe Williams can help. But none of this could have happened had the Canadian Football League had a policy to ban suspended NFL players.

To me, if this isn't a coincidence, I don't know what is.

"The thing about this whole situation is some really awkward things had to happen for me to be here right now," he says. "First, I had to get suspended for doing drugs, but I don't do drugs anymore. Secondly, someone had to have the balls to put me on the (negotiation) list. Thirdly, the Dolphins had to agree. Fourthly, I had to be willing to come here. If you go back a year, there's not any possible way I would be playing in Canada. It's so impossible. For things to happen for me to be here (it's) something that I need to do, I definitely believe that."

The Argos wanted him to cut off his dreadlocks and shave off his beard to present a positive role model image. Williams says he had no problem with that. In February while studying yoga in India, he cut off most of his hair and shaved off his beard when asked to do so by his spiritual instructor.

"I never felt that I needed (the long hair and beard)," he says. "One of the things that I've always been an ambassador of is you can't judge a book by its cover. The statement I was trying to make (with dreadlocks and a beard) was don't judge me because I don't shave; because I don't cut my hair. It has nothing to do with what's on the inside of me. By the same token, I understand where (the football establishment) is coming from. For me, my life is like I swing from outside to inside, inside the box, outside the box. What I have to learn is to integrate forward and not be too attached to this, not to be too attached to that; to understand where they're coming from and to understand where I'm coming from and trying to find a way for me to fit in those parameters."

Williams had been quite prepared for the Dolphins to not allow him to play in the CFL because of the risk of injury.

It has been suggested the Dolphins capitulated because Williams needs money. Reports have circulated recently alleging Williams has made $14 million US in pre-tax income since turning professional in 1999, but has whittled it away. Furthermore, playing football would give him income to help pay for child-support payments. He has fathered three children by three separate women and is expecting a fourth child, his second with his fiance.

"The way people's minds work is they value money, but I don't," he says. "I've never had to work for a living. I've always been fortunate to always have things placed in front of me. I've never looked at life as ever having to work for any reason. I've never been able to make a connection between work and money because I've never felt stressed about having money or not having money. I just go with whatever's in front of me and make it work. Fortunately I've always had money to do that, but I couldn't imagine worrying about money, it's just not my style.

"In life all you can do is the best you can do, whether it's $100,000 a year or doing the best with $10 million a year or doing the best with $50,000 a year. You just do the best you can. If you were looking from the outside or you were a person that thinks you need money, then you can say (I needed to play to make money), but I don't think I need money. I was going to volunteer myself for the year teaching yoga at a centre in San Francisco. I had already dedicated my year to do that. I would have made zero. I didn't need money to make it this year. I pay child support, but I have enough money to pay child support. I haven't made $14 million in my career, but I don't need to play football."

He says he is not looking at this experience selfishly.

"I'm just an instrument. I'm not doing anything," he says. "It's not me. I'm fortunate enough to have this attitude so that I can see and learn from it. It's not about me. It's not what I can get out of it or what I can experience from this. It's bigger than that. Happiness only comes when you're where you're supposed to be and doing what you're supposed to be doing. Basically it all comes down to your attitude and what you're doing. The attitude I'm trying to cultivate is an attitude I'm not here for myself, I'm here to serve something greater than myself. With that open attitude, you're supposed to serving, it will come to you.

"It's just about being open and surrendering to something bigger than yourself. It's very subtle and it's very vague and it's hard to understand and it's hard to see, but if you can focus your mind on that idea then it manifests for you. Everything is a process. I have a natural sense of surrender and I was able to be open and have room to grow -- a positive atmosphere -- and I was able to grow very quickly and learn a whole lot about myself and a whole lot about life. It was a progression there and even still I learn more on a daily basis. I spent the last five months turning inward and looking, searching and going deeper into myself. It's an on-going process that I will continue for the rest of my life. Once you understand what life is about, you'd be a fool not to put all your energy to going down that path.

"We operate on two different levels. We have this body that was born and lives, it grows, it decays and then it dies. More subtle and pervasive than our body are our minds. We have all these thoughts, all these ideas, all these emotions, all these instincts, all these feelings. Then deeper than that is where the spirit lies, and the spirit is the cause of the mind and is the cause of the body. So when you operate on this level of spirit, there's no black, there's no white, there's no male, there's no female, there's no, 'I like this, I don't like that.'

"It's something that's deeper and all of us have in common that's exactly the same. When you operate on a spiritual level, then there's nothing to ever get upset about, nothing to argue about it. It's just acceptance and love. When you live and you deal with people on the level of the body and the mind, it's always this or it's always that. The mind is so subtle and it's so fast, people don't know what they're thinking. They just know what they feel. They don't know what's going on. That's why I think we need to work and deal with people on a spirit level, then you're able to see what's really inside of them.

"People that understand me, it is because they look at me in more of a spiritual way. If people say they like me it's because they understand me. If people say they don't like me, they don't understand me. It's as simple as that. Once you understand what life's about, you have no reason to dislike anyone; you have no reason to judge what they do, what they think or what they feel because you realize we're all here to learn lessons and we're all here doing our very best."

As we're talking I notice a tattoo of reggae singer Bob Marley on his right arm. He had it done a couple years ago.


"I would say he was my first teacher," Williams says. "He resonated with me as a kid and I listened to his music every day, all day almost. I don't listen to him so much anymore because I've moved past that stage. I think people that appreciate Bob Marley for what he's worth, they'd be much happier; they'd find more peace in their lives.

"The one thing that people don't realize is they say you are what you eat, but in a broader sense you are whatever you take in with your five senses. It becomes who you are. If you watch violence on TV, you can't help but take in some of those violent images. If you listen to violent, loud disturbing music, you can't help but take on some of those disturbing tendencies. If you eat bad food, you're going to take on some of those attributes. If people are just more conscious about what they watch, what they listen to, what they look at, what they smell, what they're around, then they'll find they have no peace in their lives. I think on a positive level.

"Being around Bob Marley's music at a young age really helped me in dealing with a kind of peace and laid-back acceptance that I've always had."

I asked Williams, who had three positive tests in the NFL for marijuana use -- but claims to have not smoked pot in more than a year -- if he believes Marley smoked grass as part of the Rastafarian religion.

"Part of it is religion, they didn't see it as a drug," he says. "They saw it as a gift from God or as part of nature; that it was there to assist them in their lives, in their meditation. That's the way that he looked at it.

"Very few people in the West can approach it that way because we don't have a connection to the earth like people who are so close to the earth. When I was in Australia (two years ago) living in a tent, I really connected with something that I never knew; that we come from the earth. It's hard to explain. To go to bed when the sun goes down and to wake up to the birds at five o'clock in the morning and not have four walls and to be out there, it really awakened some things inside of me. You realize that literally our bodies are made of nothing but food. We live in high rises, we lives in houses, we drive cars all the time, we walk on the sidewalks. We don't have that connection with nature. We buy our vegetables in cans from stores, so we don't have that connection. I think a lot of kids think vegetables come in cans.

"I don't think we have the capacity to understand or the experience to really understand what Mother Nature or the earth is and what it really means to us."

I wonder if he had a chance to meet three people, either alive or dead, who would they be? His answer proves to be the most interesting response of all in our one-hour dialogue.

"It would be myself," he says. "Because I can sit in the past and I can see the future. We're all eternal."

Because he believes we are all connected to the past, the present and the future and there are causes and effects binding it all together, I asked him if he knew or was in touch with the person he was three lifetimes ago.

"I don't want to go to that because people will think I'm weird," he says. "But the person, the body and the mind are different, but the soul is the same. They say it's like clothes or like a car. It's like you drive a car, it's wonderful, it does good and once it breaks down and it can't work anymore, then you get rid of it and you get a new car and you move on.


"You're the same person driving the car, it's just a different car. Or you wear clothes. The clothes get raggedy. You take them off and you throw them away and you get new clothes. The person wearing the clothes is the same, it's just a different clothing."

He is now wearing the clothing of the Toronto Argonauts. Next year he will be back in the uniform of the Miami Dolphins. In a few years from now, who knows what his attire will be. We only know he will be Ricky Williams, body and soul and with an eternal spiritual belief.

The dam or water reservoir is a crucial part of the hydroelectric power plants. Water stored in the dams is used for generating electricity in hydroelectric power plants. This article discusses factors affecting the location of dams for hydroelectric power plants.

Issues with Dams

The dam also called as water reservoir is the most important part of the hydroelectric power plants. All the water that is used for generation of electricity in the hydroelectric power plants is stored in the dam. Since huge quantities of water are stored in the dam, it is very important that the bed and walls of the dam should be able to sustain all the hydraulic pressures of water. Water has mass and large quantities of water have huge weight which is exerted on the bed and the walls of the dam. If the walls of the dam are not strong enough to sustain the forces of water, the walls will break and water will spread to the surrounding areas producing devastating floods that have potential to cause large scale destruction of human, animal and plant life.
Factors Affecting the Selection of Site for Dams

Apart from the construction of the dam, selecting proper site for the dam is very crucial. Selecting the proper site will help carrying out construction of the strong dam and it will also help reduce risks due to natural disasters like earth quake. Here are some of the important factors to be considered while selecting the site for the dam for hydroelectric power plants:

1) Good topographical location along the path of river: The best location along the path of the river is river canyon or at the location where there is narrowing of the river. If the aim is to store maximum amount of water, then the volume of basin above dam should be calculated so that sufficient quantity of water can be stored in it. The perfect site is one where there is wide and flat valley.

2) Right geological structure: The rock structure on which the dam will be constructed should be strong enough to sustain the weight of dam and water stored in the dam. The rock structure should be able to sustain all the visible and invisible forces. The rock structure should be stable and there should be least occurrence of the earthquakes in the region. The rock structure should not allow the seepage of water and it should be waterproof.

3) Sufficient water is available: The flow of water where dam is constructed should be sufficient enough to fill the dam. There is lots of loss of water from dam due to evaporation, the flow of river water should be able accommodate this loss of water without affecting the production of electricity from the hydroelectric power plant.

People living around the areas where storage basin is going to be constructed and the areas that will be submerged should be convinced to move from there and they should be given proper compensation and suitable resettlement areas. If this factor is ignored the chances of the success of the hydroelectric power plant will reduced.

Many CD and DVD drive errors in Windows are caused by drivers or other background programs. If you're running Microsoft Windows, run through Windows disc drive troubleshooting steps first.

A bad disc drive can cause an assortment of different issues on your computer. Below are just a few of the possible issues you may encounter. It is important to remember that the issues described below can also be caused by more than just a bad disc drive.

Error when reading CD or DVD.


2. CDs or DVDs may not play audio or video properly.

3. CD or DVD programs may not install or encounter errors after being installed.

There are different ways to test your computer's disc drive and determine if it's bad or has flaws that are causing issues with your computer. Below is a listing of these recommendations. If your drive fails to read a disc, try the following solutions:

Check for scratches on the disc data surface. Check the drive for dust and dirt; use a cleaning disc. Make sure the drive shows up as a working device in System Properties. Check the drive's power and data cables if the drive is not listed. Try a disc that you know works. Restart the computer (the magic cure-all). Remove the drive from Device Manager in Windows, and allow the system to redetect the drive.

Failure to Read CD-R/RW Discs in CD-ROM or DVD Drive

If your CD-ROM or DVD drive fails to read CD-R and CD-RW discs, keep the following in mind:

Some old 1x CD-ROM drives can't read CD-R media. Replace the drive with a newer, faster, cheaper model. Many early-model DVD drives can't read CD-R, CD-RW media; check compatibility. The CD-ROM drive must be MultiRead compatible to read CD-RW because of the lower reflectivity of the media; replace the drive. If some CD-Rs but not others can be read, check the media color combination to see whether some color combinations work better than others; change the brand of media. Packet-written CD-Rs (from Adaptec DirectCD or Drag to Disc and backup programs) can't be read on MS-DOS/Windows 3.1 CD-ROM drives because of the limitations of the operating system. Sometimes older drives can't read the pits/lands created at faster speeds. Record the media at a slower speed. If you are trying to read a packet-written CD-R created with DirectCD or Drag to Disc on a CD-ROM drive, reinsert the media into the original drive, eject the media, and select the option Close to Read on Any Drive. Download and install a UDF reader compatible with the packet-writing software used to create the CD-RW on the target computer. If you are not sure how the media was created, Software Architects offers a universal UDF reader/media repair program called FixUDF! (also included as part of WriteCD-RW! Pro). WriteDVD! Pro includes the similar FixDVD! UDF reader/media repair program for DVD drives.

Failure to Read a Rewritable DVD in DVD-ROM Drive or Player

If your DVD-ROM or DVD player fails to read a rewritable DVD, try the following solutions:

Reinsert DVD-RW media into the original drive and finalize the media. Make sure you don't need to add any more data to the media if you use a first-generation (DVD-R 2x/DVD-RW 1x) drive because you must erase the entire disc to do so. You can unfinalize media written by second-generation DVD-R 4x/DVD-RW 2x drives. See your DVD-RW disc-writing software instructions or help file for details. Reinsert DVD+RW media into the original drive and change the compatibility setting to emulate DVD-ROM. See the section "DVD+RW and DVD+R," earlier in this chapter, for details. Write a single-layer disc and retry if the media is dual-layer. Most DVD-ROM drives can't read DL media. Make sure the media contains more than 521MB of data. Some drives can't read media that contains a small amount of data.

Energy is the driving force for the universe. Energy is a quantitative property of a system which may be kinetic, potential, or other in form. There are many different forms of energy. One form of energy can be transferred to another form. The laws of thermodynamics govern how and why energy is transferred. Before the different types of energy resources and their uses are discussed, it is important to understand a little about the basic laws of energy.

The Three Laws of Thermodynamics

There are three laws of thermodynamics. The first law of thermodynamics, also called conservation of energy, states that the total amount of energy in the universe is constant. This means that all of the energy has to end up somewhere, either in the original form or in a different from. We can use this knowledge to determine the amount of energy in a system, the amount lost as waste heat, and the efficiency of the system.

The second law of thermodynamics states that the disorder in the universe always increases. After cleaning your room, it always has a tendency to become messy again. This is a result of the second law. As the disorder in the universe increases, the energy is transformed into less usable forms. Thus, the efficiency of any process will always be less than 100%.

The third law of thermodynamics tells us that all molecular movement stops at a temperature we call absolute zero, or 0 Kelvin (-273oC). Since temperature is a measure of molecular movement, there can be no temperature lower than absolute zero. At this temperature, a perfect crystal has no disorder.
The scientific method is a body of techniques for investigating phenomena, acquiring new knowledge, or correcting and integrating previous knowledge.[2] To be termed scientific, a method of inquiry is commonly based on empirical or measurable evidence subject to specific principles of reasoning.[3] The Oxford English Dictionary defines the scientific method as "a method or procedure that has characterized natural science since the 17th century, consisting in systematic observation, measurement, and experiment, and the formulation, testing, and modification of hypotheses."[4]

The scientific method is an ongoing process, which usually begins with observations about the natural world. Human beings are naturally inquisitive, so they often come up with questions about things they see or hear and often develop ideas (hypotheses) about why things are the way they are. The best hypotheses lead to predictions that can be tested in various ways, including making further observations about nature. In general, the strongest tests of hypotheses come from carefully controlled and replicated experiments that gather empirical data. Depending on how well the tests match the predictions, the original hypothesis may require refinement, alteration, expansion or even rejection. If a particular hypothesis becomes very well supported a general theory may be developed.[1]

Although procedures vary from one field of inquiry to another, identifiable features are frequently shared in common between them. The overall process of the scientific method involves making conjectures (hypotheses), deriving predictions from them as logical consequences, and then carrying out experiments based on those predictions.[5][6] A hypothesis is a conjecture, based on knowledge obtained while formulating the question. The hypothesis might be very specific or it might be broad. Scientists then test hypotheses by conducting experiments. Under modern interpretations, a scientific hypothesis must be falsifiable, implying that it is possible to identify a possible outcome of an experiment that conflicts with predictions deduced from the hypothesis; otherwise, the hypothesis cannot be meaningfully tested.[7]

The purpose of an experiment is to determine whether observations agree with or conflict with the predictions derived from a hypothesis.[8] Experiments can take place in a college lab, on a kitchen table, at CERN's Large Hadron Collider, at the bottom of an ocean, on Mars, and so on. There are difficulties in a formulaic statement of method, however. Though the scientific method is often presented as a fixed sequence of steps, it represents rather a set of general principles.[9] Not all steps take place in every scientific inquiry (or to the same degree), and are not always in the same order.[10]
When put together, these laws state that a concentrated energy supply must be used to accomplish useful work.
