General Purpose: To inform (Theory)

Specific Purpose: My purpose is to inform my audience about the theory of Continental Drift.
Central Idea: My central idea is making sure my audience has a better understanding of the Continental Drift and how the theory was formulated.

The Continental Drift Theory`

I.(Introduction) For years scientists struggled to explain how similar rocks and fossils were found on continents that are far apart from each other. Until the 20th century when scientist Alfred Wegener's theory of Continental Drift was introduced.
A. "Before Wegner introduced his theory it was thought that mountains formed because the Earth was cooling down, and in doing so contracted. This was believed to form wrinkles, or mountains, in the Earth's crust. Wegener suggested that mountains were formed when the edge of a drifting continent collided with another, causing it to crumple and fold". ("The Earth in the Universe,"1999) -BBC reference.

1. Alfred Wegner noticed that the continents seemed to fit together at the edge of their continental shelves .
2. He noticed this because he observed that continents in the Southern Hemisphere have similar rock and fossil patterns.
B. He believed that the continents were all once apart of a large supercontinent called Pangea.
II. Aside from fossils and rock patterns there were other observations that led to his theory.
A. "Glacial till deposits in the Southern Hemisphere aided Wegners hypothesis".("The supporting Evidence of Plate Tectonic Theory",2008)
1. Glaciation till is unsorted glacial sediment left behind by glaciers during the glacial drift.
2. "Glaciation in South America, Africa, India, and Australia is best explained if these continents were…...

...Final Reflection “Has there ever been a time when we have not been awash in a remarkable torrent of symbols and opportunities for reading and writing them?” (William Kist, in the NCTE statement on multimodal literacies) There is an art of reading, an art of thinking, and an art of writing. To read is to fly: it is to soar beyond what it seen on the pages. We write to taste life, in the moment we live and in retrospect of the past. Reading helps develop thought, instead of having to think for yourself. Once you learn to read, you will be forever free. When reading this quote I believe that there is always something interesting being offered in which we can both read and write about. Everyday, there has to be a moment which is better than all the other moments, a moment that makes you smile or laugh, something memorable, something you can look back at and smile because that’s how memorable it was. These are moments in which we can write about to share, because someone out there must be able to connect with this moment and share that smile you had when you experienced it. As well as someone being willing to read it. There are tons of opportunities available for people. Moving on from first semester to second semester I can definitely see how my skills as a writer and a reader has improved. As I read text I can now understand deeper meanings and connect things to other sources or personal connections I’ve made. My work habits and ideas have grown to the......

...Reflection Walden University Introduction to philosophy PHIL 1001 How can you prove weather at this moment we are sleeping, and all our thoughts are a dream; or weather we are awake, and talking to one another in the waking state? Plato For this reflection I founded it fascinating to consider different understanding of reality, I really enjoyed Plato Alegory of the cave amazing piece of art work what a great philosopher for that time period, also movie Matrix great movie directed by Wanch brothers. So questions we can all ask ourselves: Are things we see around us real, are they our reality, and how do we know that for sure, how do we know if we are dreaming or not. These are questions that unfortunately are out of our reach and only time will answer. The Alegory of the cave is a famous story from the Plato Republic, it is a profound allegory with many interpretation, and in this reflection I will compare it to the movie Matrix, and my view of reality. “ Imagine the condition of men living in a sort of cavernous chamber underground, with an entrance open to the light and a long passage all down the cave. Here they have been from childhood, chained by the leg and also by the neck, so that they cannot move and can see only what is in front of them, because the chain will not let them turn their heads. At some distance higher up is the light of a fire burning behind them, and between the prisoners and the fire is a track with a parapet built......

...1 Reflection Reflection is an everyday process. We reflect on a range of everyday problems and situations all the time: What went well? What didn’t? Why? How do I feel about it? We don’t usually follow a formula for this, it just happens as feelings, thoughts and emotions about something gradually ‘surface’. We might choose to do something differently, or not, as a result of reflecting, but reflection is essentially a kind of loose processing of thoughts and feelings about an incident, a meeting, a day – any event or experience at all. Reflection can be a more structured way of processing in order to deal with a problem. This type of reflection may take place when we have had time to stand back from something, or talk it through, as in: ‘On reflection, I think you might be right’, or ‘On second thoughts, I realised he was more upset than me.’ Structured reflection If we consciously reflect, maybe as part of our work or family role, there tends to be a rough process of ‘How did it go? What went well? Why? What didn’t? Why? What next?’ Examples might be of a football coach reflecting after a match, a teacher reflecting on a lesson, or simply a parent thinking about how best to deal with a teenager. In this kind of reflection, the aim is to look carefully at what happened, sort out what is really going on and explore in depth, in order to improve, or change something for next time. This brief guide will look at what is meant by reflection, suggest forms of structured...

The Progression of the Social Web

...The Progression of the Social Web Melanie Helm Info103: Computer Literacy (ADD1322E) Instructor Joan Rhodes July 1, 2013 The Progression of the Social Web From its humble beginning to the present day, it is mind boggling to think it has been a decade since the social web began and what is even crazier is that it has become an integral part of our everyday lives in modern society. There are now sites for virtually every special interest out there that we may have. There are now sites to share photos, videos, status updates, meeting new people, sharing recipes, sites to connect with old friends, and create new ones. It also seems there are social solutions for just about everything and every need. Social web has progressed in so many ways it is absolutely hard to keep up with these days. Usenets began in 1979 by Tom Truscott and Jim Ellis. Usenet systems let users post articles or posts (referred to as “news”) to newsgroups. Usenets are the precursor of the RSS feed readers which are commonly used to follow blogs and news sites today. They do not have a central server or a dedicated administrator. Google groups and Yahoo!, which are group sites, use many of the original usenet systems. The first Bulletin Board Systems (BBS) were primarily hosted on personal computers and users could only use it one at a time and had to login using a computer modem. BBS’s first came into existence in the late 70s. Though in a much slower fashion, BBS’s were the first to let users......

Deaths Progression in Hamlet

...Deaths Progression in Hamlet “Though yet of Hamlet our dear brother's death the memory be green, and that it us befitted to bear our hearts in grief and our whole kingdom. To be contracted in one brow of woe, yet so far hath discretion fought with nature. That we with wisest sorrow think on him, together with remembrance of ourselves.” (Shakespeare, Hamlet 1.2.1) Claudius (the current king of Denmark and husband of his dead brother’s wife Gertrude) here states that it is befitted for the whole kingdom to mourn Hamlet Sr.’s death. Although he is saying that it is okay to mourn his death, he is also stating that it is wise for the entire kingdom to move on from this quickly. By saying this, Claudius is trying to cover up the murder of Hamlet Sr., and make it seem like it never happened. Claudius is guilty for this, and that is why he has decided to try his best to make everyone in the kingdom forget about the death so he doesn’t get caught. Hamlet is a magnificent tragedy that is full of betrayal, revenge and a lot of revengeful death. Written by William Shakespeare, Hamlet takes place in England in the year of 1602. After his father dies, Hamlet’s life becomes more troubled because of the deaths of many of the people in his life that followed. He goes insane, which could very well be Hamlet’s cover up for showing his true feelings about his father’s death. The nature and progression of death in Hamlet is a large theme that overpowers many of the characters within the play. ......

...experience of learning from reflection on giving intramuscular (IM) injections, using Gibbs's (1988) reflective model. I demonstrate how practice anxiety, as a student nurse, can be dealt with through effective mentoring. I chose the seminal theory of Gibbs reflection on practice, as it illustrates six significant stages; description, feelings, evaluation, analysis of the incident, conclusion and an action plan Ghaye and Lillyman (1997). Gibbs cycle is used throughout the process of reflecting on the incident to help me make sense of my practice and understand what l could do differently to enhance good practice. I use my experience from a placement simulation as I could not be on actual placement due to unforeseen circumstances. Reflection is a process through which healthcare practitioners and students can learn from experience and use the knowledge to inform and improve practice Schon, (1983). The ability to reflect on one's actions is particularly imperative in clinical practice and discourse. As Jarvis (1992) asserted, there is no consensus on the definition of reflection as it is a broad concept. Reid (1993, p305.) define reflection as; “a course of action reviewing an occurrence of practice to describe, analyse, evaluate and so inform learning about practice” Schon (1983) identified two types of reflection which are; reflection in action, which takes place during the event where the practitioner may not be aware that it is happening and reflection on action, which......

...Reflection Paper AB 104 Personal Financial Management Dana Gitzlaff October 7, 2014 Reflection Paper The first key element we learned about was setting specific goals about what we want to do with our life and our money. In both our professional lives as well as our personal lives, finances have a profound effect on achieving those goals. Setting a goal to travel in retirement years affects how we will plan our finances. Setting a goal for early retirement depends on how well we handle our finances in the present time. Home ownership, providing for the grandchildren’s college education, moving or changing careers will all be affected by how our finances are managed. Goals should then be prioritized in the order you want to achieve them with the exception of long-term goals like retirement which should be constantly maintained while working on the others. Setting goals will do little good unless a plan is formulated. Controlling your budget should be the first part of your plan and the second part should be how to get out of debt. After these two things are accomplished, decide what you want to do with your money to reach your goals. Creating a budget allows you to create a spending plan so you can direct your money in a way that will help you to reach your goals. Once you have formulated your plans and have paid off debt, you are ready to begin investing and should speak to a financial planner to help you make your investment decisions. Preparing in advance......

Spiral Progression Model

...Spiral Progression Model (Summary and Reaction) The Department of Education Order (DO) no. 31, series of 2012, describes the new curriculum this way: “The overall design of the Grades 1 to 10 curriculum follows the spiral approach across subjects by building on the same concepts developed in increasing complexity and sophistication starting from grade school. Teachers are expected to use the spiral/progression approach in teaching competencies.” One thing notable about this progression model is that it will provide a beautiful continuum of learning for the student from kinder until he or she graduates from basic education curriculum. At the onset of the continuum the learner is given a good start by having a good grasp of the basic concepts or the foundational objectives through the use of mother tongue-based learning to the students. This would make it easier for the students to learn the concepts because their attention is not divided into learning the English language and understanding the concept itself. Now, the students may focus on learning the concept first and later on learn the English language on a spiral growth rate. It should also be noted that this curriculum with the spiral approach would not only be introduced in science and math but in all subject areas from grades 1 to 10. But what is the spiral approach? The Spiral Progression Model is an approach in teaching which provides to its students first the basic facts of a subject without worrying about......

...Ethics Reflection Paper Ethics Reflection Paper Ethics and social responsibility are important concepts that play a significant role into implementing a strategic plan. Ethics and social responsibility will benefit an organization into having a successful strategy plan and reduce and any potential negative impact of a operation. The subjects to address in this paper are the following, the role of ethics and social responsibility in developing a strategic plan considering stakeholder needs and how my ethical perceptive has evolved throughout the program. Ethics is an important concept as well as the fundamental principles of right individuals conduct. “Business ethics seek to proscribe behavior that businesses, firm managers, and workers should not engage in. Ethics is a source of guidance beyond enforceable law. It is clear and uncontroversial that firms and their workers should not engage in unlawful acts, such as selling harmful or defective products, and ignorance of the law cannot be used as a justification for unlawful actions. Business and management ethics goes beyond the law lo provide guidelines as to what is acceptable behavior in business transactions” (Haq, 2011, p.1). The way a company could successfully establish a mission, vision, or objective for its organization is through adhering ethics. The company must develop values that interest stakeholders. The values should include direction and expectation of the organization. The values......

My Progression to Christian Thought

...My Progression in Christian Thought Introduction My progression in Christian thought addresses three particular areas of growth. I have always known it is imperative to share my own personal testimony when ministering to the lost. I believe it allows them to understand that I haven’t always been a Christian and we’ve all fallen short of God’s glory. So I try very hard to maintain a standard of living which pleases the Lord because I long to become more and more Christ-like every day while doing his will. I am a part of a body of Christ (a local church), therefore, it is my duty to make sure the love of God is displayed within my community. Why personal testimonies are important in sharing the gospel Sharing my personal testimony is very important to me, because I have seen my past in others right before my eyes. I believe sharing our personal testimonies with those who are lost or in disbelief can help them realize the existence of Christ as well as his goodness. Testimonies are meant to be shared, because God wants us to go out and spread the gospel. We are warriors for Christ and are called to serve him. How else will the world know of a being in which they already cannot see? Sharing our testimony is evidence of Christ’s existence. God loves us and moves in our lives and delights in our sharing to help others. As Christians, we have gone through a period of conversion; so the world needs to know and see that through testimony. Testimony...

...Martha Belton Reflection Paper Theology 104 Introduction What can your local Church do to better communicate God’s love to your community? Does the Bible have authority? Did Jesus claim to be God? These are three topics I choose because it was very interesting to me when we talk about Jesus Christ, as our savior. A person living as a Christian should have a good attitude about their self, they should have a caring, loving and forgiving people who does God love. What can your local Church do to better communicate God’s love to your community? I think Church’s has responsibilities to spread the gospel to everyone As Christians we need to know that it was God’s grace and mercy that saved us. Church should not focus on the bad and wrong, but focus good potential in the people and community. The church membership and leadership in our community should embrace diversity without regards of labeling people. The church should not stop people from participation in any church functions, but it should not be limited to race, mental and physical health, gender and age etc. The problem churches have in today world they have to change from contemporary to modern to meet the need of people without them losing what the mission of church is for. Christianity is the most misunderstood religion in the world. The reason for the misunderstanding is the lies and the lack of stability in the church and the community. Christians are bound by the blood that was shed for us by the son of......

...Team A - Weekly Reflection Weekly Reflection This week in our class discussions, one topic in particular that is important is discrimination and how it is used in hiring practices. Because of legislation that has been passed, companies are now required to follow hiring practices that are supposed to eliminate most discrimination. However, even though companies are required to not discriminate it still does take place. When posting a new job announcement, some companies will manipulate the wording in the announcement so that only a specific individual can qualify for that job. As long as there is no mention of specific discrimination in the announcement, this is one way around the discrimination laws for hiring. Another topic in the discrimination field of employment is how technology allows for more discrimination than ever before. Because of the internet and information being solicited employers can find out any information about a potential candidate without even speaking to him or her. Employers can find out about race, gender, religion, national origin, and color by clicking a button on a computer. This new technology takes away the one on one interaction between an employer and a potential employee. The reverse side to the equation is the internet has allowed potential employees to flood employers with resumes. If an employer posts a job on, the company will receive thousands of resumes. It is impossible for the employers to meet with everyone......
