Global Warming

Global warming is the increase in the average temperature of Earth’s near-surface air and oceans since the mid-20th century and its projected continuation. According to the 2007 Fourth Assessment Report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), global surface temperature increased by 0.74 ± 0.18 °C (1.33 ± 0.32 °F) during the 20th century. Most of the observed temperature increase since the middle of the 20th century has been caused by increasing concentrations of greenhouse gases, which result from human activities such as the burning offossil fuel and deforestation.

Climate model projections summarized in the latest IPCC report indicate that the global surface temperature is likely to rise a further 1.1 to 6.4 °C (2.0 to 11.5 °F) during the 21st century. The uncertainty in this estimate arises from the use of models with differing sensitivity to greenhouse gas concentrations and the use of differing estimates of future greenhouse gas emissions. An increase in global temperature will cause sea levels to rise and will change the amount and pattern of precipitation, probably including expansion of subtropical deserts. Warming is expected to bestrongest in the Arctic and would be associated with continuing retreat of glaciers, permafrost and sea ice. Other likely effects include more frequent and intense extreme weather events, species extinctions, and changes in agricultural yields. Warming and related changes will vary from region to region around the globe, though the nature of these regional changes is uncertain. As a result of contemporary increases in atmospheric carbon dioxide, the oceans have become more acidic, a result that is predicted to continue.

The scientific consensus is that anthropogenic global warming is occurring. Nevertheless, skepticism amongst the wider public remains. The Kyoto Protocol is aimed at stabilizing greenhouse gas concentration to prevent a “dangerous anthropogenic interference”. As of November 2009, 187 states had signed and ratified the protocol.Proposed responses to global warming include mitigation to reduce emissions, adaptation to the effects of global warming, and geoengineering to remove greenhouse gases from the atmosphere.

The Importance of Studying for a test

Some children and teenagers spend most of their time studying for an important test a teacher has assigned to them. Even though they study for a long time, they can still fail the test if they do not have the correct information.

Students fail important tests if they do not know enough about the topic or have not studied the correct part of the curriculm.

The best way to start studying is while you are taking notes in class. You may not know you have a test, but you still learn ahead of time and when the teacher mentions the test, you know exactly what needs to be studied.

That is one of the most common ways to study for an important test. If you do not understand what the topic is about or you cannot find the best way to study, you can stay after school with your teacher and ask her to explain to you what the topic is about and to give you tips on how to study for it.

When you have already got the idea on what you need to study, you have to focus on how much time you will spend studying. The most common amount of time to study is at least 45 minutes on the days before the test.

Most of the students I know do not care about extra credit and just go ahead and complete the test and are satisfied with a “B”. If you want to get an “A+”, you might want to go on reading more chapters and get to know the topic better.

Some students think they did not study correctly, but they are wrong; they studied correctly they just did not study hard enough or the correct topics. That is why you should always take your time studying, not gets distracted by your surroundings, and if you have questions; ask your teacher or parents.

India Win’s World Cup 2011

Dream Come true after 28 years

“We had decided to chair him around the stadium if India won the World Cup,” said the off-spinner who is personally close to Tendulkar ( Harbhajan ).

 

Harbhajan has vivid memories of the stand-out moments in Indian cricket’s greatest triumph at home and Tendulkar’s role in them.

Recalling the team’s triumph against Pakistan in the semi-final at Mohali last week, he said that the players were drained after the high-pressure match but had a sense of triumph.

However, Tendulkar was asking his teammates in the dressing room to “cool down”, reminding them “the next three days (to the final against Sri Lanka) are the most important days of our lives and so cool down and keep focus”.

Harbhajan candidly admitted that for the first time in his career he was tense, almost scared, before the match against arch rivals Pakistan.

“Everyone from a doorman to a billionaire, was urging us on. The pressure had begun to get to me”, he said.
