Physalia is half-boat, half building, and all green this mamonth aluminium concept by Belgian achitect Vincent Callebaut is meant to travel Europe’s rivers, making filthy water drinkable. At the same time, the ship generates more energy then it uses.
A coat of tintanium dioxide paint brushed onto the silvery Shell will neutralize pollution by absorbing ultraviolet eye Enabling a chemical reaction that decampose organic and Inorganic toxins. It is the same technology used in certain High-tech concrete that breaks down airborne particulates As the vesel whips along, purifying waterways, it can draw on both solar and hydro power. Turbines under the hull transfrom water movement into electtricity, and rooftop Photovoltaic cells harness energy from the sun. the roof Doubles as a nursery, whose carefully selected plants Help filter river gunk, whether from the thames, rhine of Euphrates
But Physalia is not just designed to be a working Ship. The vessel will also be a floating museum of sorts. Scientists who study aquatic ecosystems can hole up in The dedicated "earth garden" lab, and tourist can visit Temporary exhibits in a "water garden" or settle into a Submerged lounge that could easily pass for a London Nightclub. Callebbaut, 33, dreamed up the idea after last year's United Nations Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen shone a long-overdue spotlight on global Waters issues. He has some superior terms for his project: It is a "nomadic hydrodynamie laboratory," a "fragment Of living earth," and a "floating agora" on a "geopolitical Scale," others might just call it a cool idea.

Everyone likes to group things. Language students Group words as verbs, noun and so on; collections of Word are classifed as phrases, or clauses, or sentence and these again are reclassified according to their function. In the same way. botanists classify plants as lagae, or fungi, or gymnosperms, ctC. Zoologists classify animals as vertebrates and invertebrates. The vertebrates can be further classifIed as mammals, reptiles, birds, fish, etc. Classification enables us to keep hold of more information to undcrsLand and, if it is based on the right data, enables US to understand better the ideas we are studying.
Chemists are no exception. The chemical classification Of materials, if is based on a good system, shoUld enable US to understand better the many substances which exist in our world. What is to be the basis our classification? Perhaps the most obvious one is appearance. Materials could be classified as solid, liquid or gas with some mixed types as, for example, mud being solid/liquid material and steam as liquid/gas material. Appearance could enable us to subdivide our main classification groups a little further; the solid may be green, or black, powdery or crystalline; the liquid may be colored, oily, thick, or free flowing; the gas may be colored. however, we soon realize that many probably quite different materials have the same appearance. Both air and the deadly carbon-monoxide of gas are colorless, odorless gases, but we Would not like to group them as the same thing. Many different liquids are of colorless, water-like materials.
6. The examples provided in Paragraph 2 clarify that ...
A. many kinds of liquid should be grouped as one.
B. different kinds of gas can be and odorless
C. materials in chemistry should be classified differently
d. Chemistry materials have more complicated classification.
e. Taxonomy can be made and applied further to other areas.
7. Paragraph 2 exemplifies the idea about classification That …
a. chemicals may be solid, liquid, and gaseous.
b. Appearance is not a useful basis in chemistry.
c. The use of colors is better than that of appearance.
d. Both colors and apparance should be considered.
e. Colors should be included for identifying appearance.
8. The sentence "chemists are no exception" (paragraph 2 line 1) could possibly be restated as …
a. Chemicial materials can also be put into classification.
b. Classification of chemicial materials is without exception.
c. Chemists may also classify materials using certain enteria.
d. When appearance is the basic, chemists are not involed.
e. In material classification, chemicals should not be included.
9. The paragraph following the passage most Iikely deals with the classification of...
A. flora and fauna.
B. human sounds.
C. hiquids and gases.
D. human behaviors.
E. words and phrases.
10 how does the author organize the ideas?

Neonatal Autonomic activity was 176% heigher and quit sleep 86% Lower during maternal separation compared to skin-to-skin Contact.
Dr. John Krystal, editor of biological psychiantary.
