Water

Why did you have to move backwards for drinking from the stream? discuss why this was wrong.

Water

READ THE FOLLOWING:

Water from streams is not always clean. There are many ways in which it can become contaminated. If it is near a small village, it may be used for washing and cleaning and the dirty water is thrown back into the river.

If it is near a town, factories may use the water and pump their waste back into the river. Even if humans are not contaminating the water, there may be many little creatures or germs in the water that are harmful to humans.

Think of ways to make the water safe to drink. Write them here and then discuss your answers with your teacher.

We purify water!

The water that we get in our taps has been purified, so that it is safe to drink. Chemicals have been added to make sure that germs cannot live in it. The simplest part of the water purification is filtering. Filtering is a process, which works like a strainer or a sieve and prevents the larger objects from passing through.

Your teacher will give you some dirty water. See if you can make your own filter to clean it.

What will you use? List your apparatus.

  • What will you do?
  • What do you think will happen?
  • Draw and label your experiment.
  • Your layers will prevent the worst of the dirt getting through to your container. Naturally you cannot drink this water, as the germs are tiny enough to slip through your filter.
  • What do you think will get rid of the germs?

Memorandum

  • Our journeys can also take us into the countryside. This can bring us into contact with unclean water and the importance of clean water.
  • Stress the importance of water as a precious resource in our lives (especially in a country like South Africa where we often experience periods of drought) and that we need to save and not waste it. Discuss another resource that we often take for granted: electricity. These resources should be used with respect just as we need to save or use our money wisely.
  • Ask the learners to think of ways of saving water and electricity in their own homes. Remind them that in this way they are also saving money! (EMS 1.5).
  • Let the learners try to think of a slogan or jingle to remind them not to waste, something like “An apple a day keeps the doctor away”. If they want others to always close the tap properly, they must try to find a rhyme with “tap” and “water” to make their friends close the tap, e.g. “Close it well, leave no drops to tell”, or in the case of switching off the lights, “Have you flipped a switch today?”
  • Explain that for some people the lack of water or running water is a serious issue. If this is a problem in your area, use the task described in the activity as your next assignment. If not, try to identify an environmental issue in your community, whether it be some traffic hazard, a pollution problem or something else that the learners are exposed to.
  • Let them have a group brain storming session about the factors causing or leading to this issue. Give each group a large sheet of paper so that they can list the causes. Then let them establish who is affected by the problem and suggest a solution.
  • They will therefore
  1. identify an issue;
  2. list possible causes;
  3. find out who is affected;
  4. propose a solution.

(GEOG. 1.4; A&C 4 Composite).

Questions & Answers

what's a psy.d degree
Robin Reply
Psychology Doctorate. The main difference between PsyD and PhD Psychology is that PsyD mainly focuses on clinical sessions and PhD focuses on research.

Hi, I have a question. What factors influence social facilitation and social inhibition in groups?

Do you know of any studies done to show social facilitation and social inhibition
Amritpal
social facilitation is often influenced by the person's perception of the situation and their appraisal of the task. for example, a track athlete who views their competition as a challenge rather than a threat, will tend to run the fastest they have ever ran under a large crowd.
fady
Another condition is if the person has mastered the ability to perform that task. A track athlete who trains everyday, will perform above average under a large crowd, however, someone who does not run, will tend to do worse than their actual ability under a large crowd
fady
social inhibition can be explained through evolutionary biology or attachment personality theory. some people develop an avoidance personality trait, which when they feel under pressure, they tend to leave the group or avoid a gathering due to high lev of stress

I'm guessing it's in the tens of thousands, maybe hundreds if you include counter interactions and stuff like it. although I'm sure it's almost impossible to know for sure, unless you're very rich and connected to the right people. but as I said: guessing.
Beenie
There are more than 200 classified forms of mental illness. Some of the more common disorders are: clinical depression, bipolar disorder, dementia, schizophrenia and anxiety disorders. Symptoms may include changes in mood, personality, personal habits and/or social withdrawal. that is what I think

too difficult to number. diagnosing a disorder is just checking off boxes on a compilation of symptoms that might match any particular condition on the DSM

why women are viewed as far more emotional than men?
Wario Reply
because they actually are ,I guess.
Collins
May be they are biologically milder than man. It does not mean they are not equal with man. Man can also be emotional and can are oppressed with traditional norms. For example, man are not to be cry, in actual man are also emotional being and they cannot have the right to show their sentiment.

denial of any emotion which they feel that useless at that point. Women in the other hand were encouraged/not controlled to suppress their emotions and let them out what they feel about it. I feel that's the wonderful superpower of the women.

Men's emotion comes mostly with memories triggered by senses. That means, they thoughts have the power to decide whether to let go of emotions or not.

because women tend to be more agreeable than men.
Edgar
women at a young age are conditioned to be more in tune with emotion than man should be less
David
The question is "Why women Viewed are as far more emotional than men ?" it's not a question whether women are more emotional than men. This is more an issue about the point of view from the observer, his/her assumption what emotional behavior is or what emotional behavior is.

The anwers are answers more to the question " Are women more emotional than men?"
