The Effects of Ocean Pollution on Animals The planet that we live on is made up of a vast majority of water, consisting of five major oceans of the world: The Pacific, The Atlantic, The Indian Ocean, The Southern Ocean, and also the Arctic, making up approximately 71% of the earth’s surface. The largest amount of oil entered into the ocean due to human activity is 363 million gallons, from industrial waste and automobiles. The pollution and littering of the ocean has become a major problem in these times affecting the natural habitat of many animal species. The government and citizens of the country need to engage in actions that will reduce or hopefully banish the amount of contamination affecting all ocean ecosystems. Ocean pollution is a misfortune that could be, without difficulty, preventable if people simply took the time to dispose of waste and trash appropriately.
Once an oil spill occurs along a coastline, it will affect the wildlife population living around it for many years to come and leave a lasting impact. Many animals meet their end whenever the slick oil trickles down their fur, feathers, or scales, all while decreasing their surface area so they are no longer sheathed from the cold water ("Ocean Planet"). The animals might also consume the oil or waste, thus becoming ill and eventually unable to produce offspring properly, later affecting their population even more.
Since the 1970s, many laws and decrees have been set in place to be of service to the protection of the ocean. However, not everyone abides by these laws, as a common citizen should do. There are still many major pollutants harming these marine life habitats such as oil, as previously mentioned, toxic materials, and debris.
Marine debris is one of the ocean pollutants, caused by humans whom are not aware that littering…...

...treaties and agreements making diplomacy very ineffective. The only real hope for a solution to the problem is an infusion of new leadership in the country. That leadership would have to come from within and in an organically grown fashion as North Koreans are fiercely loyal to Kim Il-sung, his sons and their government. As more and more citizens of the country gain access to communications outside of their country, we can only hope that they collectively wake up. They cannot possibly look out on the world and see the growth and success of other nations, especially their kin to the south, while living in their stagnant, undeveloped nation and not realize that their government is failing them.

...Of Poetic Relations Emily Dickinson is know as ; “America's greatest poet.”(Crumbley) Many people know her name. Many know her work. Emily Dickinson was born in Amherst, Massachusetts on the 10th of December of 1830, she died on May 15, 1886 . Her work was first sighted when published in 1890, and though the recognition was not great in her time her production of approximately 1,775 (Crumbley) pieces are now very well known. Emily was one of a group of four children, but the biggest influence according to historians had come from her brother William Austin Dickinson. William Austin Dickinson was the older brother of Emily Elizabeth Dickinson. He came to also be the supporter of Emily's reading pleasure. Born in an era of intellectual importance for men and women Ms. Dickinson was highly educated and attended school. Her father, the “head of the household” as it was always during that time period, decided the fortune of the children. Though he wanted his children educated and very well read, when it came to the education of the women in the household that education was still limited. From a very young age many describe Emily Elizabeth Dickinson to have been different from girls her age. According to the information provided by The Emily Dickinson Museum, “ A wave of religious revivals in Dickinson's teen years addressed her Calvinist society's concern for the disposition of the human soul. Although Dickinson's friends, sister, father, and eventually brother all joined......

Violence is defined by the World Health Organization as the intentional use of physical force or power, threatened or actual, against a person, or against a group or community that either results in or has a high likelihood of resulting in injury, death, psychological harm, mal-development or deprivation. Workplace violence is an action or incident that physically or psychologically harms another person.

It ranges from threats and verbal abuse to physical assaults and even homicide. It can affect and involve employees, clients, customers and visitors.

...touch to enhance detail in the body of a descriptive essay. 5. Everything in the world is part of a process. Process essays are instructional and descriptive. An essay in which you teach somebody how to do something is called a how to do it essay. 6. If your intention is to illustrate the process, that essay is called a how it is done essay. 7. Comparison and contrast essays work comparative points in two ways. They are block and alternate forms. Block form is the most useful to me. I prefer it because I can write everything about one subject then write everything about the comparing subject. 8. After you have researched a topic, it is time to form a thesis. A thesis is the roadmap of your essay. An argumentative thesis is a thesis that needs explanation instead of a statement of fact. 9. The research essay is how knowledge is created in the world. MLA is the systematic manner of incorporating sources used in the humanistic/arts research essay. 10. You have summarized an article in your essay, but forgot to use parenthetical citation. You do mention the article in the works cited. This is an example of accidental plagiarism. When you plagiarize in the real world you can be sued for intellectual property theft....

Realism with Article and Cited

...this month, US President Barack Obama authorized the use of airstrikes against ISIL terrorists in Iraq. The United States and five Arab countries (Saudi Arabia, The UAE, Qatar, Bahrain and Jordan) have reportedly carried out at least 200 airstrikes against the ISIL militants operating inside Syria. Realism assumes that nation-states are unitary, geographically based actors in an anarchic international system with no authority above capable of regulating interactions between states as no true authoritative world government exists. This article relates to realism because five Arab countries are agreeing to fight with the United States. The US is like the “anarchic superpower” where everyone follows them in the fight against ISIL. Works Cited 1. "Realism Key to Uprooting Terrorism in ME: Iran Official." Press TV.

Ska Work Cited

...Annotative Bibliography- Evolution of Ska Paul Latty Western Michigan University Heathcott, JH. (2003). Urban spaces and working-class expressions across the black Atlantic: tracing the routes of ska. Retrieved from (Heathcott, 2003) The first wave of ska was the main focus of this article the first wave erupted in the early 1960s out of the energetic dance hall culture of urban Jamaica among working-class youth cobbling together old island traditions and new forms of expression from arrange of materials found in American, British, and Jamaican popular culture. I was introduced to the real definition of Rude Boy they said they were a suit and tie hooligan bent on turf protection and the defiance of adult authority. This matched what I had in mind when I thought of the rude boys I know today. I learned that many artists associated with the global reggae explosion of the 1970s, such as Bob Marley, Bunny Livingstone, Toots Hibbert, and Lee “Scratch” Perry, got their start as young Rude Boy instrumentalists in ska bands. By the late 1960s, Marley and other stars began to slow down the tempo of ska, launching experiments with the genre that would result in rocksteady and reggae music. Before reading this I had always thought that reggae and rocksteady came before the upbeat ska music was formed. This article gave me a lot of good information about the first wave of Ska and how Ska came to be in the first......

...citizens showed their patriotism; money and reliefs teams were sent from all corners of the states to join together in the effort of putting Oklahoma City back together, (Naureckas). According to the FBI it was the worse act of homegrown terrorism in the nation’s history; of course this happened before America was attacked on September 11, 2001. With nothing to stand on but the original attack on the World Trade Center just a couple years earlier the media and Americans assumed the attack was done by terrorist from the Middle East, (FBI).CBS News’ Jim Stewart even went to the extent to state, “The betting here is on Middle East Terrorist,” (Naureckas). The New York Post stated, “Knowing the car bomb indicates Middle Eastern terrorist at work, it’s safe to assume that their goal is to promote free-floating fear and a measure of anarchy, thereby disputing American life,”( Naureckas). Almost like Americans refuse to believe one of their own would bring harm to their own people. After the attack Americans had no sense of security, they were surprised to find out there were militia groups throughout their homeland, (Casey). Before the bombing Clinton did not feel like legitimate violence against the federal government and its employees was possible or a reality. Fifteen years later President Clinton spoke to the country about the tragic event, he mentions how the images of the attack still brings back the feeling had so many years ago, (Clinton).

...abolish capital punishment once and for all.Sunshine 2 I do need help with a few questions and concerns I have for the paper. Am I correct in thinking that the primary reason people support the death penalty is retribution (having a punishment that fits the crime)? Could it be something else? Is there another counterargument that I’m missing? A second concern I have is about the costs related to the death penalty. I’m concerned that I won’t get this section right because there are good financial arguments on both sides of the death penalty debate. My final concern is that the cities in America with extremely high murder rates (Chicago and Detroit) also happen to be in states that don’t have a death penalty. I am concerned that this may work against me.Sunshine 3 Section 2 – Outline I. Introduction a. Death penalty definition b. Death penalty overview (incl. list of states currently supporting death penalty) c. THESIS: The death penalty should be abolished in California because there are too many irrevocable mistaken executions, there is no consistency in sentencing hearings, and, most importantly, there is no evidence that it actually deters crime.

...always shown to have a higher final survivor count. This shows that the experiment was not a product of chance. The author of the experiment was forced to reject his hypothesis and say that higher Ni concentrations did not help an insect resist pathogens [Boyd]. Conclusion The results of this experiment go to show that insects do not easily resist pathogens such as Beauveria bassiana. It can be used as a powerful insecticide, especially considering it has no effects on humans[Herrington]. There is not much significance in the discovery from this experiment considering the hypothesis had to be rejected. High Ni concentrations do not help the insects survive. This supports the power behind fungal pathogens such as Beauveria bassiana.
