Grand Canyon is one of the most sought after destinations in Arizona, U.S. The landscape as well as the trails offered to individual traveler's offers a unique environment that can only be found here. The Grand Canyon National Park surrounds a gorge of the Colorado River and was established on Feb. 26th 1919. The National Park covers 1902 square miles of Arizona landscape. Connecting the northern and southern rim of the park is Las Vegas, Nevada, and the Hoover Dam, which are both key tourist destinations. The Grand Canyon Association is the official nonprofit organization responsible for generate private funds and providing educational opportunities within the park. Being such an attractive tourist destination and having so much inaccessible terrain, the private industries have begun to offer aerial tours over the national park. The National Park Service developed plan that addressed the environmental and social implications of the noise produced….
Grand Canyon was formed by exploring four possible hypotheses. Initially the superimposition mechanism intuitively seemed to be the more plausible explanation for Grand Canyon formation, but the weight of the evidence from the field trip lies with the overflow mechanism. Though it still leaves some questions unanswered, and some formations and processes unaccounted for, overall the overflow mechanism offers the best explanation.
To begin with, the first requirement for being able to explain Grand Canyon formation was determining whether the Colorado River was older or younger than the bedrock high of the Kaibab Plateau. Based on information provided at the various stops, one can conclude that the Colorado River is younger than the Kaibab Plateau.
At stop 2e there is evidence showing that the topography of the bedrock high controls the location of the transverse drainage incision into low elevation saddles. The topographical map shows how Marble Canyon is controlled by….

Controversies in Understanding the Formation of the Grand Canyon: Evidence for a Lava Dam Breach
Modern attempts to explain ancient natural wonders are often fraught with controversies. The Grand Canyon, one of the seven natural wonders of the world, is no exception. There are a number of conflicting theories as to how the canyon was formed. The most commonly believed one is that the Colorado iver slowly downcut into grandiose canyon ways after millions of years of erosions, while the Colorado Plateau slowly rose above the rest of the landscape. However, there are a number of problems with this theory mainly that it does not account for the differences in the ages of the eastern and western ends of the canyon. Another, alternative theory is that there was a violent dam breach when a lava dam was destroyed, causing a massive flood that gushed into the canyon, tearing into the soft….

Flannelmouth sucker is quite common within the Colorado iver and the surrounding Grand Canyon area. This is particularly true when compared to other popular species within the area such as the Colorado pike minnow, the bony tail, and the ound tail Chub. Many of these species are either no longer found in the area, or endangered. Although these species of fish are quite different from the Flannelmouth sucker, examination of the species is still warranted. Through proper observation and analysis, we are in a better position to properly assess the condition of the Flannelmouth Sucker. In particular, this document will address sample data regarding the Flannelmouth Sucker, the surrounding area, and similarities to other species. We will then relate this analysis to environment conditions such as water discharge and prey availability. Finally, we will conclude with a brief discussion on management issues.
To begin, condition assessment is commonly used to….

Cambrian System of the Grand Canyon
The purpose of this work is to research and examine the relevant information available in relation to the Cambrian System of the Grand Canyon.
Just above the break in the historical record of rocks which is referred to as "the unconformity" in the Grand Canyon noticed in 1869 by John Wesley Powell while on his pioneer voyage, are the Cambrian Tapeats Sandstone. The Great Uncomformity is stated to represent about 1/2 billion years of missing time! According to some the answer is stated as follows:
"During Grand Canyon Supergroup time, a hypothesized supercontinent called odinia assembled at about 1.1 Ga, and then broke apart around 0.75 Ga. The first life forms with a nucleus, single-celled creatures called Eukaryotes, were becoming more diverse, testing the waters for their future evolutionary extravaganza known as the 3 Cambrian Explosion.2 Changes in global seawater composition reflects complex changes in climate, tectonics,….

Planning and Reflection
During my student teaching experiences I kept a journal, which greatly helped me to organize my thoughts and clarify the areas in which I most needed to improve. My mentor also pointed out for me the key areas that need improvement. Therefore, as I look forward to a professional career as a teacher, I will be able to draw on these early experiences. I will remember what works and what doesn't and I already feel far more confident and proficient than I did before I undertook the student teaching challenge. In general a few major themes emerged through reviewing my journal entries and the statements written by my mentors. My strengths are my willingness to use a wide variety of teaching materials and teaching styles. An enthusiastic implementation of multimedia materials keeps students actively engaged, and keeps lessons more interesting. Moreover, my lessons are well-planned and incorporate a….

Loss of the Creature
Notice how Rembrandt employed chiaroscuro in his works," began my art history professor. "His technique revolutionized the way that artists portrayed sources of light on the canvas." glanced around me. About twenty students sat neatly behind their desks, faces illuminated eerily by the glow of the overhead projector. The scene was ironic: our professor trying to convey an understanding of chiaroscuro through a painting done five centuries ago, when right before our eyes was a true example of the contrast between light and shadow. Art history is an arena in which the "loss of the creature" is felt most profoundly. In his essay "The Loss of the Creature," Walker Percy notes that biology students are removed twofold from their subjects of study, first by layers of packaging, of labels and names, and second by a confounded array of theories. Similarly, any classroom discussion of art fails to….
Decision Making with Providers
The scenario facing Mike, the lab technician, is that of lateness, which attracted a reprimand from his supervisor. Seemingly, lateness had become a trend to Mike while reporting to work and that is why the supervisor had questioned him. He had made a promise that he would be punctual, the last time his supervisor questioned him. Mike's promise pegged on the importance he attached to his job because he was the sole breadwinner for his wife and newborn baby. Mike was overwhelmed by the thought that his job would be terminated in the possible reoccurrence of his tendencies to come to the workplace while late. He had received the assurance his supervisor (Grand Canyon University, n.d.).
On this day, Mike tries his best to reach work on time. Therefore, he leaves home twenty minutes before time but unfortunately, there was an accident on his commute. Although some….

Down the Yukon: Amid the shouts and the cheers and the splashing of oars, it was pandemonium. "Nome or bust!" Jason yelled. In the shadow of the Arctic Circle, Dawson City is burning, changing forever the lives of thousands in the Klondike gold fields. All the talk is of Nome, nearly two thousand miles away, where gold has been discovered in the beach sands. Jason Hawthorn is itching to join the new rush. He and his brothers have been cheated out of their sawmill, and Jason has vowed to buy it back. A race to Nome has been announced, with a $20,000 prize. Jason's partner in his canoe is the girl he loves, Jamie Dunavant, freshly returned from the States as she promised she would. The Great Race across Alaska will be a grueling test for the two….

The Dynamic Indicators of Basic Early Literacy Skills (DIBELS) are a set of procedures and measures designed to assess the acquisition of early literacy skills from kindergarten through sixth grade. As emphasized by Kaminski, Cummings, Powell-Smith, and Good (2008), DIBELS is a generic indicator and represents a broader sequence of skills to be taught. I approached family friends about using DIBELS to test their younger son, Justin, a sixth grade student. Justin is a high achiever with very good grades and a positive attitude about school. His best subject is math. His parents have been worried about Justin's reading skills. Although he was tutored in reading at Sylvan Learning Center, Justin's parents still do not believe he has attained the proficiency of which they believe he is capable. I hoped DIBELS would demonstrate Justin's reading strengths and weaknesses.
In talking with Justin, I discovered he has a more extensive vocabulary than….

education and the teacher-learner relationship from a Christian-informed philosophical perspective. It begins with an explanation of the author's personal worldview, and then explores the various philosophical schools of education. Combining the two, the author explains how they have helped shape the author's approach to education. ather than relying on a single educational philosophy, the author intends to combine multiple philosophies in the classroom environment.
Describing the purpose of education is an interesting prospect because education is a cultural construct, and, as a result, what constitutes an education is dependent upon the surrounding culture. In a broad sense, an education is the instruction and learning that a person receives, in both formal and informal environments, which is aimed at preparing that person to live as an adult within the surrounding culture. When one views education as a means of adapting the individual to adult life in his or her own culture,….

Fallacies of easoning in TV Commercials
The DIECTV- Stop Taking in Stray Animals-Commercial
The DIECTV Commercial demonstrates the series of events that occurs when an individual has bad cable. The events are as follows: when you spend too much of your money on cable, you get angry and you start throwing things. When you start throwing things, people begin to think you have anger issues. Consequently, your schedule clears up because people do not want to deal with your anger. When the schedule clears up, you start growing a beard, then you start taking in stray animals until you cannot stop. So to stop taking in stray animals, you have to get rid of cable and upgrade to DIECTV.

The New West is part Ted Kosinski, and part Ted Turner. It is rich land barons and poor farm workers. It is desert oases like Las Vegas and Phoenix, and pristine grandeur like the Grand Tetons and the Grand Canyon. It is too many people in the cities, and too little water for the population. It is a state of mind, and a state of being. The New West is not about the land; it is about who owns the land, and how much they can get out of it. The West is not dying, and while Egan cannot abide much of what is happening in the modern West, from the damming of rivers to the overpopulation of the cities, he will not concede the West it dead, and that may be more of his revisionist theory. Today, many people believe the West is on a collision course with….
