The quality of preservation2 is outstanding, but what is even more impressive is the number of ichthyosaur fossils containing preserved embryos3.

Lewis and Clark brought back much new information, including the knowledge that the continent was wider than originally supposed

The rocks of the crust are of very different ages. Some continental8 rocks are over 3,000 million years old, while those of the ocean floor are less than 200 million yeas old.
Given that two-thirds of the Earth’s surface is water and that marine lives at all levels of the ocean, the total three-dimensional living space of the ocean is perhaps 100 times greater than that of land and contains more than 90 percent of all life on Earth even though the ocean has fewer distinct species.

Science involves imagination and creative thinking as well as collecting information and performing experiments.

Science is built with facts just as a house I built with bricks, but a collection of facts cannot be called science any other than a pile of bricks can be called a house.
In the early nineteenth century, the knowledge of the physics of heat, which was essential to a science of refrigeration was rudimentary. Rapid industrialization and increased geographic9 mobility10 in the nineteenth century had special implications for women because these changes tended to magnify social distinctions.
Anthropology11 is a science in that anthropologists use a rigorous set of methods and techniques to document observations that can be checked by others.

With the growing prosperity brought on by the second world war and the economic boom that followed it , young people married and established households earlier and began to raise larger families than did their predecessors12 during the Depression.

On a global basis, nature’s output of these compounds dwarfs33 that resulting from human activities. However, human production usually occurs in a localized area, such as a city.

The actual concentration need not be large for a substance to be a pollutant34 in fact the numerical value tell us little until we know how much of an increase this presents over the concentration that would occur naturally in the area. Sulfur35 dioxide, for example, has detectable36 health effects at 0.08 parts per millia (ppm),which is about 400 times its natural level .Carbon monoxide, however, has a natural level of 0.1 ppm and is not naturally a pollutant until its level reaches about 15 ppm.
The acute, growing public awareness37 of the social changes that had been taking place for some time was tied to tremendous growth in popular journalism38 in the late nineteenth century, including growth in quantity and circulation of both magazines and newspapers.

The elements other than hydrogen and helium exist in such small quantities that it is accurate to say that the universe is somewhat more than 25 percent helium by weight and somewhat less than 75 percent hydrogen.
Farm dwellers47 in their isolation48 not only found it harder to locate companions in play but also, thanks to the unending demands and pressures of their work, felt it necessary to combine fun with purpose. When a neighbor needed help, families rallied form miles around to assist in building a house a barn, husking corn shearing49, or chopping wood. Certainly, these have been periods in Earth’s history when mass extinctions have occurred. The extinction50 of dinosaurs51 was caused by some physical event, either climatic or cosmic.

There is little doubt that one reason why the number of amphibians56 is declining is that their habitats are being destroyed.

With bicycle chains covered, cyclists would need to clean and oil their trains once every month instead of once a week. Despite his invention, however, she still advises cyclists to take a taxi or bus when it is snowing heavily. Not because the condition are too arduous61 for bicycles, but because believes bikers can not have confidence in the people who drive cars on days of reduced visibility.

But while wood pulp solved the problem of quantity, it created a problem of quality.
In warm-blooded animals birds and mammals for example, the body temperature normally stays within a narrow range no matter what the outside temperature is.
This new pose stressed the relationship between dinosaurs and modern birds and supports the theory that dinosaurs actually more closely related to birds than to any other exsting creature.
They lived in what is now Arizona from 300 B.C to AD 1500. Which view is correct? Well, historians who wrote during the calm and prosperous 1950s found reasons to the idealist view. Those who wrote during the trouble of 1960s found supports for economic view point. I would say that neither view is complete, both the idealist and the economic perspective contribute a part to the whole picture.
