  • During night time, is it warmer near the coast comparatively to inland?

    Best answer: Water absorbs a lot of heat without big changes in temperature. One of the wonderful things about water, actually. Ground heats up fast and cools down fast. In hot weather, the air near the water is cooler (because the water is not as hot as the air and nearby land, so cools it), and in the winter, the reverse... show more
    Best answer: Water absorbs a lot of heat without big changes in temperature. One of the wonderful things about water, actually. Ground heats up fast and cools down fast. In hot weather, the air near the water is cooler (because the water is not as hot as the air and nearby land, so cools it), and in the winter, the reverse is true: the air near the water is warmer than inland.

    Water bodies buffer temperature. The water resists extremes in either direction. It takes in heat and gives off heat without changing temperature much at all.

    There is a day and night cycle to it too. We mostly notice that in wind directions (the wind blows onshore during much of the day and offshore later in the night). Air rises when land is hot and sinks when the land cools off.

    How likely is it an instructor will pass a student if he behaves well in class and is friendly but has trouble with getting a lot of homework problems wrong including the exam? If the student isn’t understanding the material, even if he asks but still gets all the answers wrong due to a very hard class but if the student is still pleasant and likable by the professor, how likely is it the teacher in college would pass that student if his work was poor but if he at least tried and made an effort?

    Best answer: There is no such thing. Discrimination is discrimination. The opposite (or reverse) of discrimination would be equality, and your teacher is certainly not asking for an example of equality.

    I think he/she wants an example of discrimination that works against the historically favored group, which is white men.

    Affirmative action, or diversity initiatives, or inclusion programs, or whatever today's term is for institutionalized racism, is an example of such discrimination. The intent of AA is a good one: to give women and members of ethnic minorities a "leg up" in a career which has historically been dominated by white men. The supposition is that, since racial and gender equality initiatives are a fairly recent component of our society, that women and racial minorities may be disadvantaged, since their family members are unlikely to have achieved as much as they otherwise would have, due to gender or racial discrimination. It's hard to become an engineer or a doctor when you're the first member of your family to graduate high school, or the first woman in your family to have a career outside the home.

    Unfortunately, such programs hurt the very people that they were designed to help. By considering any factors other than education and experience in a job interview, affirmative action is lowers the bar for these historically disadvantaged groups. This tends to ensure that members of those groups who get hired are less qualified or less competent than other frontrunners for the job. It ensures that members of those groups don't have to work as hard to reach their goals, and makes other applicants work harder to get where they are. This often produces less-than-motivated applicants from those groups, and makes it likely that white men who did make the cut are more driven and dedicated as a result. I think you can see why these programs, while admirable in theory, work poorly in practice.

    Men are widely discriminated against in our legal system. Ironically, this discrimination is due to the same traditional gender-normative stereotypes that kept women out of the workplace a few decades ago. Men are thought of as more ruthless and violent than women, and less prone to emotional outbursts. Men are therefore regularly sentenced more harshly and for longer than are women that have committed the same offense.

    In custody battles, men are woefully underserved, receiving full custody in less than 1 in 10 custody battles (cases in which both parents fight for custody). Women receive custody about seven times as often, and the remaining ~20% of cases ends in joint custody, or both parents losing custody to the state. Men are ordered to pay child support more often, and on average must pay a greater percentage of their income as child support than do women.

    My mind naturally makes connections between two things, For instance a discussion may remind me of one thing which in turn reminds me of another things. ill show an example. I was discussing about the concept of England with someone, Then my mind naturally remembered a connection of England to Ireland and from that, reminded of the ireland Bombing perpetrated by the IRA and with it, Reminded me of the song Zombie by the Crannberries. It is weird that my mind naturally establishes a connection between two things that although are connected, is kinda off topic but then uses that to establish even more connections with ideas surrounding it. Is this normal?

    I'm taking a university class called performing and social change. One of our assignments is to create a performance based on something we are passionate about and trying to get our audience to change their thinking about the topic. We can do this performance anywhere in the school, but I'm not sure where I should do it. The topic I chose is bullying but I'm not sure about what I should perform based on this topic. My performance has to reach a lot of people and I'm not sure how I'll be able to do it. Do you guys have any suggestions?
