Sea turtles do not appear to possess features necessary for a similar mechanism, and yet they are able to find their way to favored spawning locations even when placed in unfamiliar parts of the ocean hundreds of miles from their target (Luschi et al.). The evidence seems to suggest that the sea turtles actually pick up information from winds and currents that pass the island before coming their way (Luschi et al. 529). This could indicate that there is some sort of cognitive process going on that lets the turtles know which direction home is and how to go about getting there.
The many species of turtle are truly among some of the most unusual and amazing members of the animal kingdom. hether in a tank, a pond, a zoo, or the sea, they are remarkably entertaining to watch, and studying about their biology and history provides a great deal….

Overwintering Turtles and the Implications for Humans Avoiding Anoxia
Oxygen is necessary for animal life, a truism that is so ingrained in experience and knowledge that few people stop to consider that many animals can go for significantly long periods of time without taking in oxygen. The freshwater turtle is a wonderful example of this adaptive physiology; it overwinters at the bottoms of lakes, and, to do so goes into a state of hibernation that allows it to live at the bottom of the lake without taking in additional oxygen for long periods of time. Scientists believe that two main physiological adaptations enable the turtles to engage in this behavior. First, the turtles' bodies depress their metabolic and cellular processes, which reduces their need for oxygen consumption. However, dealing with the need for oxygen only solves half of the hibernation dilemma; animals also build up lactic acid and this build up….

Creation Myth: How the Sun and the Moon Came Into Being
Once upon a time, the entire world was in darkness. There were human inhabitants of the earth, but they could hardly see but a few feet in front of their hands. They had been born of the dark clay of the earth and the breath of the creator god but they had no language, no arts, and spent all their days looking for food in the darkness. Of course, they could not plant anything so the best they could do was forage for roots and insects in the never-ending night.

The creator god had long passed into nothingness, but his sons remained in the cave in the sky that had been his former home, playing with a great fiery ball which they passed back and forth between the two of them. Sometimes they would show the ball to the world in….

Yertle the Turtle" This story is set in a pond dominated by turtles and that is presumably organized in a hierarchical way with king Yertle in charge of the community of turtles. Yertle stands on a rock that represents its throne and the other turtles are 'forced' to act in accordance with its wishes.
Yertle is an eponymous character and one of the central characters in the story while Mack, the other central character, is the turtle at the bottom of the pile and the individual who decides to overthrow Yertle's authority.

The main theme in the story is related to how an individual can lose everything if he or she keeps trying to get more power.

The conflict involves Yertle's tendency to want more and Mack's determination to do something about it.

The exposition shows Yertle as a turtle who is not satisfied with its position. The rising action takes place when….

confusing at first because there is no mention of a turtle, but the scene needs to be set before the turtle can have a point. The title of the story is good because it talks about the main subject of the story, but it is also important to know that the turtle is a metaphor for something bigger. Steinbeck is trying to show that there are many things that human beings encounter in life, but by not giving up and by making the effort to do something more with life, most of the problems can either be avoided or corrected so that they are not really problems anymore. The thick shell of the turtle is like the 'thick skin' that people talk about. It means that things do not bother a person, and it is important to be this way when problems appear so that life can be enjoyed.

" Turkle claims that "our fragile planet needs our action in the real," which is exactly what the little girl was trying to point out. Her appreciating the animatronic animals more than the real ones is a product of technology saturation.
Technology has become an annoyance: we all experience the "sense of encroachment of the device" on our personal time and it is difficult to cut ourselves off from the world. Yet technology is a blessing. Turkle points out that the shy and inhibited are hiding behind their virtual selves. Indeed they are: to their advantage. Many readers would agree that technology has allowed the shy and socially awkward to engage socially with others without having to sweat or take anxiety medication.

Being constantly connected with the world is a choice we make. Technology is not deadening us to the world, as Turkle implies. Quite the opposite: technology is enhancing our vision….

"Homecoming, with turtle" versus "How to Tame a ild Tongue"

Junot Diaz' short story "Homecoming, with turtle" and Gloria Anzaldua's story "How to Tame a ild Tongue" both deal with matters regarding cultural identity, ethnic discrimination, and lifestyles in general. Characters in the two stories are shown as they have trouble understanding who they are because they are forced to make it in hostile environments. Each protagonist experiences suffering developing their personal identity because they are confused in regard to their image. However, in contrast to Diaz, Anzaldua experiences positive results as a consequence of her attitude and actually comes to consider that her life is improved because of the way that she shaped her character.

"Homecoming, with turtle" puts across an episode in the life….

This is designed to help support individuals who are dealing with financial challenges. The problem is that select amounts of recipients will use as a way to live off of the government. (Wolf, 2005)
How might a socialist and a capitalist government differ in its treatment of the problem of unemployment?

Socialists want to see massive amounts of government spending to create new jobs, training programs and provide unemployment benefits. A capitalist is opposed to these kinds of programs and believes that charities / private enterprises can address these issues.

In your opinion, should the government have the responsibility of providing health care for every citizen? Why or why not?

Yes, the government should provide health care. The reason why is because prices are increasing exponentially and the number of uninsured is rising. These factors are a sign that there is very little competition inside the sector. To address these imbalances a government….

Civil Disobedience
One might think that finding parallels between a Dr. Seuss story and the real-life story of Rosa Parks does not make sense. However, that is less than true as the parallels and commonalities are early and often when it comes to comparing the history of one and the story created on the other. Indeed, civil disobedience has taken on many forms but it is seemingly the least violent yet poignant events that seem to be the most effective. It was something that Martin Luther King Jr. greatly touted and Rosa Park and her refusal to move from her seat was just another example of that. While civil disobedience is sometimes disruptive or otherwise counterproductive, it is a thing of magic when it is done well.

Analysis

To answer the important question first, civil disobedience is basically a means that people use to protest laws that are deemed to be unjust or….

(Radhakrishnan, 1953)
The Indian deity also preoccupied himself with creating most famously the Ganges.

The Chinese tale too has symbols of China (specifically the turtle) ("he used the molten rock to patch the holes in the sky, and she used the four legs of a giant turtle to support the sky again" (Walls & Walls, 1984) Aside from which, note that all names of gods are typically Chinese.

The acts of the Creation generated an entire world with a host of nations and geographical environments. Each of the narrative accounts however focus on a sliver of land, usually the land lived in by the author / authors of the narrative.

The author's purpose in centering in and focusing the tale around one specific country may simply reflect the fact that for primitive people born, living, and dying on one specific part of earth, this was all they knew. For people in those days,….

Offshore Outsourcing
Jonathan Zaun

As America continues to struggle through a recession that was in many ways self inflicted, today's leading economic minds are debating the issue of offshore outsourcing with more interest than ever before. hile politicians and labor unions claim that offshore outsourcing weakens the nation's economy, this view is biased and shortsighted, as it fails to take into account the many benefits derived from the transfer of jobs overseas. In order to remain competitive in an ever evolving global market, America should take advantage of offshore outsourcing and utilize the practice as an effective means to strengthen and streamline its workforce. Innovation has always been a cornerstone of American economic superiority and offshore outsourcing is a reliable method of spurring employees both at home and abroad to adapt, improve and expand their skill sets. A profitable exchange of talented, educated employees from one country to another can also form….

Plus, SweatX's proponents supposed it would make accessible a model that would provide anti-sweatshop campaigner confirmation to push most important brands like Gap plus Nike whose goods are made chiefly in Asian also in Latin American sweatshops to elevate their workplace values. It should be noted that the majority of SweatX's thirty-five fabrication workers have started other jobs, characteristically with harsher conditions and inferior pay. Although the company's for the most part recent executive team wishes to keep the brand name alive under a very new trend. Somehow, SweatX may well also bond with human rights along with labor crowd like United Students adjacent to Sweatshops as well as the National Labor Committee. Which have splurge the precedent decade exposing sweatshop exploitation and underneath workers' move violently to unionize about the world. Auxiliary, SweatX may possibly help building a U.S. marketplace for union commodities made in underprivileged countries by….

Turtle shell rattles have been used for countless centuries. Such rattles have been recovered from ancient sites in the southwest and in the Mississippian civilizations.
The turtle rattle was also a musical instrument in ceremonial use. One of its most important functions was its significance in the False Face ceremonies. One of the most distinguishing features of the Iroquois belief system is the reliance on the mask for religious and ritual purposes. These masks are often designated as False Faces. This term refers to the first False Face and the mythical origins of protective and healing spirits. They are used in introductory and agricultural rituals. The turtle rattles play a significant part in these important rituals.

In the various curing and healing rituals, the wearer of the False Face will juggle hot coals and use ash and is apparently immune to cold (see below), and he bears a turtle-shell rattle to….
