To ensure that risks remains effectively managed throughout the project, ATOM provides a series of risk reviews. These risk reviews are major and minor risk reviews. Major risk reviews usually takes place at key points during the project, either at the beginning of a new phase or a significant milestone within a phase, but they do not happen enough to ensure that assessment of risk exposure remains current. Minor risk reviews on the other takes place in line with the

three different states of matter. In solids, atoms or molecules are tightly bound to one another thereby creating a rigid nature. Each atom or molecule is caged by its neighbors creating non-mobility, although they might vibrate around the equilibrium position. Here attractive forces are very strong. Consequently, solids have definite shapes and volumes. Some examples of solids are diamond, metals, and ice.
In liquids, the atoms or molecules are not as tightly bound as in solids and due to that they have some freedom to move around. They still experience attractive forces but not as strong as solids. In addition, they also begin to experience some repulsive forces. Thus, liquids have

hydrogen atoms. A saturated hydrocarbon, also known as an alkane, is a hydrocarbon in which all bonds between the carbon atoms are single bonds. Te simplest saturated hydrocarbon (alkane) is methane, CH4, with just 1 carbon atom bonded to 4 hydrogen atoms. Methane has a tetrahedral structure (Figure 2).
Ethane, C2H6, contains 2 carbon atoms. Each carbon atom in ethane is bonded to 4

There is a vast base of evidence defending the oxygen photosynthesis, from the molecular oxygen which is released by photosynthesis. Before the emergence oxygenic photosynthesis, ambient oxygen levels were notably low, this resulted from the chemical sinks from rock weathered and reduced geothermal outflows which greatly exceeded the abiotic sources of oxygen.

heating systems strictly to natural gas systems. (EIA 2015)
When natural gas is used to heat a home, a chemical compound called methane is being burned. Methane, or CH4, contains one carbon atom and four hydrogen atoms. Natural gas is found within rocks deeply embedded into the Earth. Special tests are performed to see if a site is promising in containing a large amount of natural gas. If it is, drilling begins, and once the drillers reach the gas, it gets pumped upwards through wells, where it can then be sold for heating and energy purposes around the world. These wells can be drilled either on land, or in deep ocean regions, all depending on scientific testing to conclude if it is a viable

As of 2012 the United States National Helium Reserve accounted for 30 percent of the world's helium. The reserve was expected to run out of helium in 2018. Despite that a proposed bill in the United States Senate would allow the reserve to continue to sell the gas. Other large reserves were in the Hugoton in Kansas, United States and nearby gas fields of Kansas and the panhandles of Texas and Oklahoma. New helium plants were scheduled to open in 2012 in Qatar, Russia and the United States state of Wyoming but they were not expected to ease the shortage.

This is the reason that countries like China, Russia, Pakistan and North Korea have never had any protests since people lack education and their opinions don’t count. If this becomes an internationally combined movement including people from these countries, we can certainly change this situation. There is another aspect to the movement for which we can expect a change sooner, the issue of nuclear power.

hamburgers a year.2 The meat is composed of ground muscle tissue of cows, which contains a large amount proteins, fats and water. Proteins are chained molecules made up of amino acids. The main component of protein in meat is myoglobin, which is composed of helices or coiled regions of the protein chain. These helices are bundled together within the protein structure and deep inside is an iron atom. The red color of meat actually comes from the myoglobin molecules. Meat changes color when heat is applied through a series of chemical reactions. As the meat is cooked, the myoglobin proteins in the meat vibrate faster and faster, denaturing the proteins, unfolding them and changing their shape

understanding of atomic structure, Democritus and other 'atomists' thought that atoms were indivisible (the Greek for 'atom' was atomon or atomos) and infinite in size and shape as well as firm and completely solid. These atoms, then, existed in a void moving about combining and recombining. This necessitated the existence of nothing, or a void with Democritus saying when naming 'nothing' as a no-thing, that the one (nothing) no more exists than the other (thing). The void was considered a condition for the possibility of motion with its essence as being one of yielding so that atoms may pass through and instead of being a concept of absolute space, it was probably more thought of as temporarily

produce peroxy radicals which cause yet further damage, often in a chain reaction. Other polymers suceptible to oxidation include polypropylene and polyethylene. The former is more sensitive owing to the presence of secondary carbon atoms present in every repeat unit. Attack occurs at this point because the free radical formed is more stable than one formed on a primary carbon atom. Oxidation of polyethylene tends to occur at weak links in the chain, such as branch points in low density polyethylene.

It means that you can have worlds and universes within an atom and it will still all be contained within the chitta because space can mean outer space, inner space, or any kind of space, and when chitta pervades space, it permeates through all kinds of space.

Role of Sports in Society
A. Description of the issue
The role of sport in society has been debated for many decades. Sport is a part of society as both an educational fixture and an entertainment enterprise. Sport forms part of human and social development; it can contribute to social cohesion, tolerance and integration and is an effective channel for physical and socio-economic development. As a universal language, sport can be a powerful medium for social and economic change: it can be utilized to bridge cultural gaps, resolve conflict and educate people in ways that very few activities can. The goal of the Sports Council is to examine the proposition that sport can be a powerful agent

A team that is multi-cultural has the capability to bring individuals together with an extensive range of ideas and experiences. In the recent years, there has been a tendency of multi-cultural teams becoming very common. This is because cross border mobility has become much easier and the number of people travelling from one nation to another has grown significantly (Aswathppa, 2010).

For some, once they have reached a goal in one market they make decisions to venture out into other markets. In the world of business, that venturing out is called diversifying the company.

What is Honor?
My understanding of the term honor.
Honor is defined as a source of credit or distinction, and is associated with reverence, dignity, reputation, good name and a good sense of what is morally correct. The key part to honor is having respect for others and for you; the two must act together because without both, there is nothing. I strongly believe that reputation is hard to gain and easily lost. Think about this, every day thousands of planes fly somewhere and there is never any news about a successful landing, but if any of those flights crash, it is all over the news.
