ABSTRACT
Trees are an important part of every community. Trees increase our quality of life by bringing natural elements and wildlife habitats into urban settings. Many neighborhoods are also the home of old trees that serve as historic landmarks. The tree observations goal is to help people maintain the health of their community and their state’s trees and forest.

INTRODUCTION
Trees have supported and sustained life throughout our existence. Different species display an endless variety of shapes and forms. In this experiment I had tested the ability to present information about factors affecting the health and measurements of trees.

METHODS
I used a Biltmore stick to measure the diameter (DBH) of the tree. I also had to find an area with at least twenty trees for measurements, recorded the information I obtain on a tree observation sheet.

MATERIALS
Biltmore stick, tree observation sheets, an area with twenty trees, pencil

RESULTS
The species of trees was from a neighborhood called Green Acres. Measurements taken at the site; shown that Maple/Boxelder trees in the site was identified as a more common species in the area and illustrated in good health with minor problems. For the other selected trees, no significant difference in circumference was found between all other trees because of the weather.

DISCUSSION
Overall the best time to measure trees is between June and September other observations can be made anytime during the year. Individual trees vary their appearance throughout the course of the year as the seasons change. The strength and long lifespan of trees give them a good quality. People and organizations across the country go to great lengths to protect and save trees from danger such as from modern developments and thousands of household items.

CONCLUSION
The purpose of this experiment was…...

Describe air in terms of its major components, their relative amounts, and the local and regional variations in the composition of air. -Major components of air are: nitrogen, oxygen, argon, carbon dioxide, and water vapor. The composition of air by volume is about 78% nitrogen, 21%oxygen, and 1% other gases. ****** 3. List the major air pollutants and describe the health effects of each. -Four major air pollutants and their health effects: -Carbon monoxide- known as the “silent killer” because it has no color, taste, or smell. Once you inhale it passes into your blood stream and interferes with the ability of your hemoglobin to carry oxygen. At first you may feel dizzy, nauseous, or your head may hurt. Continued exposure can lead to severe illness, even death -Ozone- sharp odor, may be detected around a photocopier, electric motor, or welding equip. Can reduce lung function. Symptoms include chest pain, coughing, sneezing and lung congestion. -Sulfur dioxide- has a sharp unpleasant odor and dissolves in the moist tissue of your lungs to form an acid. Those with lung disease such as emphysema or asthma are most susceptible to sulfur dioxide poisoning. -Nitrogen dioxide- brown color and also damages lung tissue. Like sulfur...

...CHAPTER 1 THE PROBLEM AND ITS BACKGROUND INTRODUCTION To study and learn is basically our main reason why we enter school, but to make this schooling fun and memorable we tend to join in different activities which we think that can enhance our skills as a person. Most teenagers nowadays engage themselves on extracurricular activities on school such as sports. Many teens in high school want to try out for sports for some reasons. A lot of them try because they think it will make them popular or give them lots of benefits. For them sports are a healthy, fun and beneficial way to stay in shape, meet new friends and pass the after-school hours. This may sound cool at first but there are young people that encounter problems regarding their sports and studies on the latter part of their career. One of the biggest problems of student athletes is maintaining their study habits in the right track and this research will help the readers to evaluate the study habits of young people who engage themselves in these kinds of activities. As a varsity player, it is a big issue on how they handle their time between their chosen sport and their studies. A student athlete may encounter some difficulties on maintaining good study habits for some reasons which will also be presented in this research paper. Most of the varsity players in St. James Academy do manage their time well because they need to maintain good grades for them to continue their athletic career but on...

...Chelsea McCann 1. Describe the shifts in the world economy over the last 30 years.  What are the implications of these shifts for international businesses based in Great Britain? North America? Hong Kong? As stated in chapter 1, Along with globalization, there has been a significant change in demographics of the global economy over the last 30 years. The aspects that contributed to demographics throughout the 1960’s were U.S. dominance in the world economy, world trade picture, world foreign direct investment, and on the international business scene. Also, much of the world economies were off-limits to Western international business. The demographics of the multinational enterprise have displayed not only a rise of non-U.S. multinationals but also a growth of mini-multinationals. In 1973, 48.5 percent of the 260 largest multinationals in the world were U.S. firms. The second leading country with the largest multinationals was the UK. While these countries, along with France, Germany and Japan, are still determined to be the largest multinationals, developing countries are on the rise. Firms from these developing countries are expected to give rise to leading competitors, which would continue to shift the world economy away from North America and Great Britain. The United States’ share of the world output has decreased from 40.3% in 1963. The decline has been a result of the growing industrialization of countries such as Great Britain, North America and Hong...

...1. Why do we speak of ‘basic” rather than “primitive” religions? We speak of basic religion because basic religion came from prehistory or are practiced in remote places. And elements of the basic religions are found to some degree in all religions. Basic religions represent the majority of the total religious experience of humankind. While primitive religion carries with it connotations of being backward, simple, even childlike. Christian or Muslim or Jew may tend to look down on these religions as being superstitious, uncivilized, or even savage. The term is misleading in suggesting that the religions of those peoples are somehow less complex than the religions of "advanced" societies. 2. What are the two primary sources of information about basic religions? How trustworthy are these sources? The first is contemporary basic religions and the second source of information is archaeology. It is more difficult to use contem- porary data to speculate about the origins and earliest forms of religion. All contemporary societies, even the most technologically simple, have long and complex histories. While on the other hand Archaeologists main sources of information are likely burial sites, weapons, and tools. Archaeological results depend on the interpretations of the investigator. Therefore information we can’t say archaeological sources are trustworthy; we can only give credit to their investigation. 3. What do we believe was the purpose of the Cro-Magnon cave...

...Sept 1, 2014 CST 2420-03 Chapter 1 Questions 1- What do ethnomusicologists mean when they say, “Music is universal, but it is not a universal language”? Music is universal but it is not a language even though both are made of symbols. Language is made of symbols with assigned meaning whereas music is made of symbols that are neutral are open to the listeners perception to assign their meaning. Also, it is debatable if music can transcend language barriers. 2- What are the potential problems in classifying music as “classical,” “folk”, or “popular”? Generally music is related to class instead of being nuetral. No better or no worse. 3- How might an ethnomusicologist approach the study of Western classical music differently from a musicologist? Ethnomusicologists not only study the music but how that music effects its audiences in a certain culture. Whereas, a musicologist studies music as a whole. An ethnomusicologist would study western classical musics effect on the western world. A musicologist would just study the music as it is. 4- What is “fieldwork”? What is its importance to the study of world music? Fieldwork is the recording of music using various methods including a cyclinder, disk, wire, and a magnetic acetate tape. The importance of this is that we can record the music we hear for further analysis. 5- In what ways does world music study require an interdisciplinary approach?

...Ohler 1 Kyle Hardenbrook Chemistry CP October 16, 2014 It was not right for what I did in chemistry class today. Swinging my apron between my legs and making weird noises is a safety caution. If someone was walking by me swinging my apron I could have knocked something out of their hand and made them drop the item. It could have been glass or a specific chemical that was dangerous and caused more injury towards someone. It was extremely immature and I let my energy get to the best of my actions today in chemistry. Proper actions should be mature and not act like a fool and try to get people’s attention and make them laugh. Being the class clown is nothing to be happy about. If I would have causes an accident then their project could have been jeopardized which means their grade is jeopardized. I don’t want to be responsible for affecting someone’s grade because of my immature acts. If I were to knock something over and it was hazardous I could have a possibility of injuring someone. Chemicals are nothing to mess around with and that’s why you should never mess around in a lab. If I were to hurt someone it could mean being in the hospital and if I were responsible for having someone in the emergency room and to pay for someone’s bills I would feel absolutely horrible. Being immature in lab and having fun is nothing to joke about. You need to be 100% serious or else you are endangering other people around your own area....

...CHAPTER 1 Company Profile This chapter deals with the history of the company, nature of the company and organizational chart. Raner Trading and Car Care Services #126 Marcos High Way, Brgy. Mayamot, Antipolo City, Rizal, Philippines History of the Company: Raner Trading and Car Care Services has been serving its community for more than five years since it was established by its sole proprietress Ms. Emerenciana Rabeje last May 13, 2010. According to Ms. Rabeje, it was founded for the purpose of serving the dump truck hauling industry, primarily. To realize profit comes after. But, she added that RTCSS had brought her more than she expected in terms of profit. Aside from the target costumer--- dump trucks, RTCCS also became known even to the lightest vehicles such as bicycles and motorcycles. RTCCS has been prospering for quite some time due to the hands-on management of the owner, Ms. Rabeje, herself. Henceforth, the proprietress thought of putting up another branch of RTCCS. She founded RTCCS-Rodriguez, located at Monterock St., San Isidro, Rodriguez, Rizal. But, her failure to directly manage the said branch became the reason of its failure. Thus, Ms. Rabeje made her hardest decision ever since she founded RTCCS; she dissolved RTCCS-Rodriguez after its first year of operation. She brought all the equipment to the main branch and made it more profitable there. However, RTCCS is currently into a dilemma. The realization of profit became a bit of a problem since the......
