    INTRODUCTION Dana Point is a city between Los Angeles and San Diego in southern California, but is best known for its harbor. Just north of the harbor lies a rocky beach with large cliffs only tens of meters from the sea, depending on tide level. Cliffs along the coast of southern California are prone to landslides due to their rock composition (mostly sedimentary) and high erosion rates from the sea but become increasingly stressed from overlying man-made structures and landscaping practices. For this reason, it is important to continually monitor the geological hazards that exist along the coast. One relatively new way to monitor landscape changes over time is by the use of three-dimensional (3D) mapping. Long-term changes can be seen by…

    In life there are many situations you come across where you must decide whether to stay quiet or speak up.

  • Rhonda Rousey Men's Fitness Analysis

    Rousey is the main target for these hate comments because of the sport she participates.

  • Meditation: The Driver Of The Minivan

    Across many cultures, a snake is believed to be deceptive largely on a great influence from the bible. The first analogy I think associated with this is the snake in the grass. This “is someone who pretends to be your friend while secretly things to harm you” (Thefreedictionary.com).

  • Rhetorical Analysis Of Attending A Speech By Dr Laker

    Unknowingly, it was a clever way to introduce the points he makes later in the speech. There was no thesis directly stated, however the entire speech was about techniques he used when working at the school in Pakistan and everyday interactions. Dr. Laker had three main points which he explains then shares examples of. Since the speech is about personal spirituality, it tended to be subjective.
