If the moon is full today, what phase do you expect it to be at in a week? _____________
How about one month later? _____________
Many words in astronomy also non-astronomical uses as well. Using your
knowledge of how the terms on the left are used in astronomy match them with the nonastronomical
uses on the right.
waning convex, rounded -- also hunch-backed, having a hump
gibbous to increase in size, quantity, volume, intensity, etc.
waxing decrease in magnitude, importance, brilliancy, intensity, etc.

From the perspective of an observer above the North Pole, the moon moves
clockwise / counter-clockwise (circle) in its orbit around the earth.
In the diagram below the sun's light is coming in from the right. The…
A novel solid-phase synthesis methodology of N-substituted-2-aminothiazolo[4,5-b]pyrazine derivatives was developed. The key step in this synthesis strategy is tandem reaction of isothiocyanate terminated resin 2 with o-halo-2-aminopyrazine, affording cyclized 2-aminothiazolo[4,5-b]pyrazine resin 4. To increase the diversity of our library, Suzuki coupling reaction was performed at the position C6. Further functionalization of 2-aminothiazolo[4,5-b]pyrazine core skeleton with various…
Novel 3-Phase Single stage boost inverter: Analysis, Design and Experimentation
M K Pathak, Member, Dogga Raveendhra and Aravind Panda
Abstract— this paper introduces a novel type of 3-phase single stage dc-ac converter, which is controlled by sliding mode control, offers intrinsic step up abilities. Proposed inverter is designed with lesser number of solid state semiconductor switches and small passive elements. Sliding mode controller (robust controller) is designed to control this power…
the highest drug solubilization capacity for docetaxel. Whereas, Captex and Gelucire 44/14 shown the least solubility of docetaxel in them. Based on the solubility results, Capmul PG8 NF was selected as the oil phase, Cremophore EL as surfactant and Transcutol-P as co-surfactant. Capmul PG 8 NF (HLB 6) has partial aqueous solubility over Capmul MCM C8 which may help in easy dispersion of drug in an aqueous medium [34,35]. A good combination of surfactants with low and high hydrophilic lipophilic…
Tuckman has four phases of group development. The first being forming, the second being storming, the third being norming, and lastly the fourth being performing. Each of these four phases are influenced by different aspects of your group coming together and working. Essentially the three of these phases are meant to lead you to the fourth phase with success. My group has gone through all four of these phases throughout this semester, while working on our project for COM 240.
and turbulent. Adolescents go through significant phases in their journey of figuring out who they are and how they fit into the fabric of everyday life. The first one being the naive phase; this is where we believe we know everything there is to know. This is the stagnant phase where we cannot see change and think about forever in the most literal sense. Second is the turbulent phase; where we find ourselves rebelling to anything that we feel is oppressive. Lastly is the phase of awakening, in…
The area of the formed ME of each system is calculated relative to the whole area of the pseudo-ternary phase diagrams using AutoCAD program 2014. Figures 1 and 2 showed pseudo-ternary phase diagrams of various oils from different origin and fatty acid chain length such as vegetable oil (Avocado oil), long chain triglyceride (Labrafil isostearique) and GMO. These oils were tested for their effects on the area of ME formed. It was observed that the vegetable oil “Avocado” based systems gave no…
to ask questions of their own, and in turn allows the educator to support the child’s investigation with prompting questions to encourage critical thinking and reasoning (Campbell, Jobling and Howitt, 2015, p. 72). The interactive approach is shown below in (Appendix 2, p. 13) when the educator said “When the ball got stuck it’s because there was not enough force to propel it forward, do you know what this motion is called?” and this approach is shown throughout (appendix 2, pp. 12-17). Thirdly,…
In the United States, federalism is a term used to indicate the relationship between the state government and the United States federal governments. After the founding of America, there was a shift of power from the states towards the national government. Today federalism has gone through other phases such as the new federalism that is of concern to this paper.
The new federalism movement appeared in America in the late 20th Century and early 21st Century. This term is a political philosophy…
The first phase of the transition is the ending, losing or letting go stage in which the people must let go of the old ways and identity that there was. The second phase, the neutral zone, is the in between period when the old is no longer there but the new is not fully running. The last phase of Bridges ' model is known as the New Beginning in which the new situation is accepted by the employees and the energy is high and become committed. During each of these phases the feelings differ for…
