    ecliptic is the path the sun appears to take through the heavens as a result of earth’s orbit. As we spin on our path around the sun, the position the sun occupies against the backdrop of the celestial sphere rotates. In addition to the ecliptic’s celestial implications, as earth’s tilt shifts from summer to winter, the plane of the ecliptic strikes earth in different hemispheres. From September 22st to December 21st, the ecliptic falls on the southern hemisphere, resulting in increased sunlight and warmth in the Southern hemisphere leading to spring and summer south of the equator. North of the equator, the opposite effect occurs: diminished light and warmth lead to fall and winter. After the spring equinox, the earth’s tilt reverses and the light and warmth of spring and summer come to the northern hemisphere. The ecliptic’s role in the development of the philosophy of science is evident in the explanations given for the obliquity of the ecliptic by the different theorists. Ptolemy’s geocentric theory where the ecliptic movement from north to south caused the seasons was later questioned by Copernicus, who believed that the earth rotated around the sun, and that the obliquity of the ecliptic was due to the tilt of earth’s axis (a belief we still hold today). Thus, truth was found in the evolution of science. 5. Epicycle Given a large circular path of rotation, an epicycle is a smaller circular rotational pattern fixed to the path of the larger cycle. Ptolemy used the…

    (Pataki). Pataki illustrates the idea of a money mule as “a person hired by a terror or criminal organization to open a bank account and Internet poker account under a legitimate identity.” Another person playing against the money mule will show him his cards and the challenger purposely loses the money (Pataki). This money gets transferred into the mule’s bank account and used to fund criminal or terrorist groups (Pataki). Money laundering falls under of one of many criminal activities. Outside…

    The planet Earth orbits in such a way that it can cause an ice age. In order for this type of ice age to occur there would have to be many different things that must occur all at once. There is nothing the human civilization could possibly do about the orbit either to prevent the ice age. Milutin Milankovitch discovered the three orbital parameters that can cause an ice age if the conditions were all to align. Milankovitch’s three different orbital parameters include Earth’s eccentricity, axial…

    earth and it occur around the 4 July. It takes about 100,000 years for the cycle to be completed, this will cause unequal heating of the earth resulting in climatic variation and also have a serious impact at the glacial regimes. The obliquity. The obliquity which is also known as the axial tilt, the obliquity refers to the curved movement of the earth axis in the connection to its plane in the orbit around the sun (Spradley, 2015:5). The axis of the earth is not straight, but it is tilted…

    neurohormonal and transmitters and neuromodulators. According to Wynarsky and Schultz (1991), ideal correction of scoliosis is to bring lateral offsets and tilts and axial rotations to zero. However, this is impossible. Clinicians must decide if it is more important to correct lateral tilts or axial rotations and base their treatment options on their decision. Currently, bracing is the only widely accepted form of nonoperative treatment of adolescent idiopathic scoliosis. Asher and Burton…

    As the Earth travels in its nearly circular orbit around the sun, it maintains a constant axial tilt of 23.4 degrees. This tilt causes the proximity of the northern and southern hemispheres of the globe to change during its annual trip around our local star. These changes in proximity and their impact on the amount of solar energy received by the northern and southern hemispheres are what causes the Earth to have seasons. As the incline of Earth’s axis brings the northern hemisphere closer to…

    The shoe is produced by this living tissue and hence comparable with human nails. It can be assumed that an unhealthy quick will produce a poor horny shoe. So the health of the quick is of primary importance for the health of the protective shoe. A vicious circle is set up as damage further worsens the already poor condition of the quick. This two-way relationship will be the starting-point for understanding bovine feet and detecting a claw disorder. (Claw anatomy) Structure and functions of…
