Scouting Across Two Continents

Grade: 11 | Year: 2012 Published On: 2014-04-25

Realism ladies and gentlemen was a philosophical term of longstanding which meant a belief in the reality of ideas and was contrasted to anomalism which considered ideas only as obstructions in the 18th century the meaning of realism was almost completely reversed Schelling in 1975 defined realism as ‘Positioning the existence of the non-ego’ in contrast to anomalism this realism is based on nature that is our own cultural ethos whereas idealism is in fact the adoption of such fashion lines which have resulted in the categorisation of mankind into marginalised and isolated groups which l personally will nullify to you in my speech entitled ‘’SCOUTING ACROSS TWO CONTINENTS’’

global warming

Grade: 7 | Year: 2014 Published On: 2014-02-23

Think about a time when your car was parked in the middle of a parking lot, in the middle of the day. The minute you opened the car door, you must have felt currents of hot air blowing past you. The moment you sat down, you might have felt as if your car was burning the heat! This is a small, yet effective example of a process called the GREENHOUSE EFFECT. This effect involves a certain body of matter, be it a car, or a green house in which plants are grown, or the earth itself GRIPPING heat or radiation from another body, in our case – the sun. In case of the car, the glass enables the assimilation of the heat, and traps the heat inside, and does not let it out. Similarly, the earth's atmosphere contains certain gases called GREENHOUSE GASES such as Carbon Dioxide or water vapor or Ozone or Methane, which absorb the radiations we receive from the sun, and trap the heat from it inside. In other words, our atmosphere, which contains the green house gases acts like a blanket; it absorbs heat from the sun, and prevents the heat inside from going away from the earth's surface. The more greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, the more the heat gets trapped, the more the temperature rises. This phenomenon of increase in the average temperature of the Earth's near-surface air and oceans is called GLOBAL WARMING.
