...Article Review 1
DeGeorge, B., Santoro, A. (2004). “Manipulatives: A Hands-On Approach to Math.” Principal, 84 (2), (28-28).
This article speaks about the importance and significance of the use of manipulatives in the classroom, specifically in the subject of math. Manipulatives have proven to be valuable when used in a math class and are even more valuable to the children when they are young, and are learning new math concepts. Students are able to physically visualize the math concepts and gain knowledge because they understand what they’re learning a whole lot better and they also are able to gain insights on those concepts. Different examples of manipulatives may include counting with beans or M&M’s, using pattern blocks, puzzles, tangrams, and flash cards, just to name a few.
Using manipulatives in a math class are beneficial to both the student and the teacher because the teacher is able to explain the concepts to the students in a much easier manner using the hands-on technique, rather than explaining it verbally. It’s especially beneficial to the student because by incorporating these manipulatives into their learning process, they are able to pick up the concepts much quicker and in a way that they better understand, yet are having fun while doing it. When they have the concepts down, the students’ self-esteem goes up and they feel encouraged to keep on going.

ANALYSIS
Physics has a lot of topics to cover. In the previous experiments, we discussed Forces, Kinematics, and Motions. In this experiment, the focus is all about Friction. Friction is the force resisting the relative motion of solid surfaces, fluid layers, and material elements sliding against each other. There are several types of friction like fluid friction which describes the friction between layers of a viscous fluid that are moving relative to each other; dry friction which resists relative lateral motion of two solid surfaces in contact and is subdivided into static friction between non-moving surfaces, and kinetic friction between moving surfaces; lubricated friction which is a case of fluid friction where a fluid separates two solid surfaces; skin friction which is a component of drag, the force resisting the motion of a fluid across the surface of a body; internal friction is the force resisting motion between the elements making up a solid material while it undergoes deformation and sliding friction.
When surfaces in contact move relative to each other, the friction between the two surfaces converts kinetic energy into heat. This property can have dramatic consequences, as illustrated by the use of friction created by rubbing pieces of wood together to start a fire. Kinetic energy is converted to heat whenever motion with friction occurs, for example when a viscous fluid is stirred. Another important consequence of many types of friction can be wear,...

The case between Beauty and Stylish involves concept of a valid contract, pre-contractual statements, express term and misrepresentation.
A valid contract is established between Beauty and Stylish when an offer is accepted and there is intention for both parties to create legal relations. An offer refers to the expression of willingness of the offerer to be contractually bound by an agreement if his or her offer is properly accepted. It has to be clear and certain in terms. It must also be communicated to the offeree before it is being accepted. In addition, the acceptance has to be unqualified, unconditional and made by a positive act. In the case of Beauty and Stylish, a positive act refers to the signing of the contract. All terms of the offer must be accepted without any changes and cannot be subjected to any condition, taking effect only upon fulfillment of that condition. When Beauty and Stylish enter into the agreement, they must intend to bind and bound legally to each other by their agreement. This is the intention to create legal relations between two parties. In the meanwhile, this contract must possess consideration. A contract must therefore be a two-sided affair, with each side providing or promising to provide something of value in exchange for what the other is to provide.
Every contract, whether oral or written, contain terms. The terms of a contract set out the rights and duties of the parties. Terms are the promises and undertakings given by each...

Four Decades of the Defence of
Australia: Reflections on Australian
Defence Policy over the Past 40 Years
Hugh White
The serious academic study of Australian defence policy can be said to have
begun with the publication of a book by the SDSC’s founder, Tom Millar, in
1965. The dust jacket of that book, Australia’s Defence, posed the following
question: ‘Can Australia Defend Itself?’ Millar thus placed the defence of Australia
at the centre of his (and the SDSC’s) work from the outset. Much of the SDSC’s
effort over the intervening 40 years, and I would venture to say most of what
has been of value in that effort, has been directed toward questions about the
defence of the continent. This has also been the case for most of the work by
Australian defence policymakers over the same period. In this chapter I want
to reflect on that work by exploring how the idea of the ‘defence of Australia’
has evolved over that time, and especially how its role in policy has changed,
from the mid-1960s up to and including the most recent comprehensive statement
of defence policy, Defence 2000: Our Future Defence Force.
This is no dry academic question. The key question for Australian defence
policy today is how we balance priority for the defence of Australia against
priority for the defence of wider strategic interests. The starting point for that
debate is the policies of the 1970s and 1980s, which placed major emphasis on
the defence of the continent....
