Tides: An effect that happens when a large object is moving in an orbit in a gravitational field. The object behaves, as far as the field is concerned, as if it were concentrated at a single point, the center of mass. So the center of mass moves in exactly the right orbit. But every part of the object that isn't at the center of mass is in a “wrong” orbit. If the object is a planet orbiting the Sun, for example, bits of the planet that are farther out from the Sun than the center of mass is, are being dragged around faster than their correct orbital speed for their distance from the Sun, and bits of the planet that are closer to the Sun than the center of mass is, are being held back from their correct orbital speeds. The result is tidal forces, which stretch the planet in both directions outward from the center of mass along a line joining the center of mass to the Sun. Tidal forces produce tides even in the solid surface of a world. But they have a much bigger effect on the oceans. Consequently, there are two bulges of water in the oceans, one on the side of Earth facing the Sun and one on the opposite side. The Moon has double the tide-raising effect of the Sun because it is so much closer. These effects combine at New Moon and at Full Moon giving rise to the spring tides.…...

The Rising Tide of Monetary Unions

...Accession into a monetary union has implications that reach far below the surface of the requirements outlined by a simple agreement or membership criteria. While there are undeniable benefits to some member states, great sacrifices must be made before, during, and after the integration process which eventually render a nation powerless over its monetary policy. Currently, every European nation is faced with the question of whether to join European Monetary Union; however, the eagerness with which new member states join is paralleled by the resistance of several holdouts to adoption of the common currency. With the unprecedented growth rate of the Euro-zone over the past decade and the number of nations currently making the required policy adjustments, core members need to be aware of the motivating factors fueling the growth in the number of new member states. The European Union is experiencing an adverse selection scenario in which nations seeking increased stability are willing to make the sacrifices that membership entails while the redistributive effect of wealth from existing to new relatively poorer member states is an implicit benefit of the current system. When Paul Henri Spaak of Belgium, Christian Pineau of France, Joseph Luns of the Netherlands, Antonion Segni from Italy, Joseph Bech from Luxemburg, and Konrad Adenauer from the Republic of Germany signed the Treaty of Rome in 1957 creating the European Economic Community(EEC), their long-term objective was......

...many high and low tides will a given spot on the coast experience in a day, and why? A given spot on the coast will experience two high and two low tides each day. High tide occurs when the Moon and Earth are facing towards each other and away from each other. Low tide occurs when the Moon is facing the Earth at 90˚ and 270˚. 4.2 – What is spring tide and when does it occur? Spring tide is when the Earth, Moon and Sun are directly aligned. This occurs at new moon and full moon. The gravitational forces caused by the Sun are parallel to those of the moon. This creates a very high tide and a very low tide. This occurs about every two weeks. 4.3 – What is a neap tide and when does it occur? At half moon, the Moon and the Sun are at right angles from each other relative to the Earth. The gravitational pull of the Sun is perpendicular to that of the Moon and the ocean water is evenly distributed. This occurs about every two weeks. 6.1 – How many high and low tides are there each day?

...Tides The Earth’s waters move back and forth every-day, causing currents and tides. Tides are the daily or twice daily rise and fall of the oceans. Tides are caused by the gravitational pull of the moon and sun on the ocean. The rise and fall of tides causes water to move in and out of estuaries, bays and harbors. This movement is called a tidal current. When the tide is rising, water flows from the ocean into the bay creating a flood current. When the tide falls, water flows from the bay back into the ocean creating an ebb current. The highest tides, called spring tides, are formed when the earth, sun and moon are lined up in a row. This happens every two weeks during a new moon or full moon. Smaller tides, called neap tides, are formed when the earth, sun and moon form a right angle. This causes the sun and moon to pull the water in two different directions. Neap tides happen during a quarter or three-quarter moon. I once went fishing with my dad at the beach and the tides were really low. We had to wait until the next morning to get a nice high tide to be able to catch any fish. The low tide waves were so far away that the fishing line barely went out. This is my personal connection because tides make a big impact on people who love to fish. Normally, fish like to be away from shore so if the tide is low, there wouldn’t be any fishes. My life does not depend on tides, however; but the fishes do.....

Pascal Tide

...WHAT IS PASCAL TIDE According to Paderborn( 1910),Paschal Tide is the period during which every member of the faithful who has attained the year of discretion is bound by the positive law of the  Roman Catholic church  to receive  Holy Communion (Easter duty). During the early Middle Ages from the time of the Synod of Agde (508), it was customary to receive Holy Communion at least three times a year — Christmas,  Easter, and Pentecost. A positive precept was issued by the Fourth Lateran Council (1215) and confirmed by the Council of Trent (Sess. XIII, can. ix). According to these decrees the faithful of either sex, after coming to the age of discretion, must receive at least at Easter the Sacrament of the Eucharist (unless by the advice of the parish priest they abstain for a while). Otherwise during life they are to be prevented from entering the church and when dead are to be denied Christian burial. The paschal precept is to be fulfilled in one's parish church. Although the precept of the Fourth Lateran to confess to the parish priest fell into disuse and permission was given to confess anywhere, the precept of receiving Easter Communion in the parish church is still in force where there are canonically-erected parishes. The term Paschal Tide was usually interpreted to mean the two weeks between Palm and Low Sundays (Synod of Avignon, 1337); by St. Antonine of Florence it was restricted to Easter Sunday, Monday and Tuesday by Angelo da Chiavasso it was defined as......

...Tides and the Moon Name AST/101 Date Teacher Tides and the Moon I was recently tasked with examining the relationship between the Earth’s moon and the Earth’s tides. I took that to mean literally: how are the tide levels of Earth’s bodies of water affected by the Moon? When approaching this question I want to do so with the scientific method in mind. The scientific method refers to a body of techniques for investigating phenomena, acquiring new knowledge, or correcting and integrating previous knowledge (Goldhaber & Nieto, 2010). The scientific method is a way to ask and answer scientific questions by making observations and doing experiments. It is also a good tool when we are searching for cause and effect relationships in nature. We already know the primary question being asked: How are the bodies of water on Earth affected by the Moon? To begin to answer our primary question we next ask: what causes tides? There are several kinds of tides. The ones that break upon a beach every 10 seconds to a minute are caused by sea level disturbances out in the ocean produced by such things as storms. Also the various circulation currents of sea water can have velocity components directed toward the land which will bring water up onto the beach. As this water travels toward the beach from deep water to shallow water, its amplitude will increase until it finally “breaks” as a full-fledged breaker, suitable for surfing, etc. Underlying this minute to minute activity is a......

Pirates Strangers Tides

...Hi,   Disney's latest, P.o.c- on stranger tides, is not an action entertainer as that of P.o.c - at the world's end. But it certainly has all the ingredients to keep you glued to your seats. It's an out and out johnny depp movie, where he carries it all through with ease and his usual, yet different gestures.     The plot of the movie revolves around Spaniards, British and the pirates, who are all set in search for fountain of youth. Even though it sounds same [group of people fighting for a common thing] as the previous ones, the manner in which it is dealt is gripping. As the action sequences are less in this venture, more effort have been put on comedy sequences. This is where Depp has scored immensely. Mentioning about his action sequences, the one which stood out was Depp's escape from king's palace, which was as good as any of the captain's earlier escapes.                   Apart from johnny, other noticeable performances were from Penelope Cruz, Ian Mcshane & Geoffrey Rush. Especially Ian Mcshane, in the role of Black Beard scores all through, starting from his introduction as the captain, till he is fooled to death by depp in the closing moments of the film. This legendary actor proves again why he is a valuable asset to any film. For Penelope Cruz, as Angelica, you can never take this as her best, but still she has essayed her part to perfection as the daughter of Blackbeard.           A new addition to this venture are the appearance of mermaids with......

Rising Tide of Nationalism

...Question: Rising tide of nationalism has been observed in many parts of the world in the last decades. Primordialism and constructivism have been used to explain this phenomenon. Outline the key arguments of both theories, and then proceed to answer the following question: which theory better explains the rise of nationalism? Illustrate your answer in the context of Macau, China or any one country that you are familiar with. Brief Introduction The word nationalism was created in the late 18 centuries, but it only got popular from the 1830s. It used to convey the idea of identification with a nation in which a group of people shares common ancestry in the early time, but later it began to link with patriotism and with aspirations to statehood. This concept became widely accepted by more and more people during twentieth century. Nationalism now is defined as a subjective feeling of a membership in a nation; a belief that a nation should form the state, or a belief that the identification with the nation should be above all other forms of identity. Nowadays Nationalism has set off a wave around the world. Primordialism and constructivism can be used to explain this phenomenon. We will see the key arguments of both theories. The first one is primordialism. Key arguments of two theories The emergence of the theory of primordialism was in the second half of the eighteenth centuries, in general, primordialism assumes political identity are innate and largely unchanged.

Tide Pool

...Name: Odekoya Oluwatosin .E Matric no: 130811040 Course Title: General Marine Ecology Course Code: MSM 205 Date: 14th of July, 2015 Question Write on the factors that affect operations Tide pool in Nigeria Answers 1. Shape A large, shallow pool has a large surface area to volume ratio or a lot of the pool is exposed at the surface. A small, deep pool has a small surface area to volume ratio. Shape and volume become important when we consider the other factors that contribute to stress in a tide pool. 2. Temperature The temperature of tide pools is affected by air temperature and direct sunlight on the pool. Shallow pools with large surface areas are likely to be more affected by temperature. The major impact of temperature changes on organisms is a change in rates of photosynthesis and respiration. For every 10 degrees centigrade, photosynthesis increases by one and a half times and respiration by two to three times. This causes a build up of by-products, such as carbon dioxide and oxygen, within the water. 3. Oxygen Photosynthesis in plants, especially algae, cause oxygen concentrations to peak in the afternoon. At night, available oxygen is depleted rapidly and animals migrate to the surface. A pool with a large surface area to volume ratio will allow more oxygen to diffuse into the water from the air. 4. Carbon Dioxide and pH The other result of photosynthesis during the day is that carbon dioxide is taken up by the plants. As the......

Coloring the Tides

...Red Algal Blooms Coloring the Tides Raymond A Martin College of Central Florida Abstract There are large, toxic blooms of dinoflagellates that leave a red coloration in the water. This rouge discoloring has become known as a red tide. Red tides have many damaging effects on the coastal environment and the ecosystem of the seas. They occur naturally as far north as southern Alaska to date. This paper will discuss what a red tide is and some of its causes. It will also explore the environmental impacts as well as health risks associated with these large toxic blooms. Next, we’ll look at the economic effect and the sociological impact of a red tide. Lastly, we can examine what to do to protect yourself from its harmful effects. Red Tide/Red Algae Effects What is Red Tide?  Harmful algal blooms, or HABs, occur when colonies of algae—simple plants that live in the sea and freshwater—grow out of control while producing toxic or harmful effects on people, fish, shellfish, marine mammals, and birds. The human illnesses caused by HABs, though rare, can be debilitating or even fatal. While many people call these blooms 'red tides,' scientists prefer the term harmful algal bloom. (NOAA 2012) Algal blooms, during which algae become so numerous that they discolor the coastal waters, visibly seen as reddish-brown. The algal bloom may also deplete oxygen in the waters and/or release toxins that may cause illness in humans and other animals. Species in the United States that......

...they created Tide detergent. Tide was the combination of synthetic surfactants and “builders.” The builders helped the synthetic surfactants penetrate the clothes deeper to attack the greasy, difficult stains. Once they were satisfied with the way the product cleaned, they introduced it to the test markets in 1946 as the world’s first heavy-duty washing detergent. Consumers responded to the new detergent quickly. Not long after its discovery, tide detergent outsold every other leading brand within weeks. It became so popular that store owners were forced to place a limit on the number that the customers were able to purchase. After conducting a detergent challenge on face book, the results showed that more people preferred Tide over Gain and All. What was very shocking was the reason they chose tide. Most of the younger generation comments were that they purchased tide for their scent, and how good tide made their clothes smell. The older generation that choose tide commented on how soft the detergent makes their clothes feel after washing. I personally use tide because if removes those tough grass stains and food stains out of my boys garments. I place the soiled piece of clothes in the washing machine on the soak cycle and let tide do it’s magic. But I was also brought up on tide.
