Global Warming and the Greenhouse Effect - What is the "greenhouse effect?" It is the behavior of solar radiation when it interacts with gasses in the Earth's atmosphere.

While studies on the effect of music on sleep exist, and the “results indicate that music is a potential nonpharmacological intervention for the treatment of sleep disturbances such as insomnia,” there are issues in the methodology used by past researchers (Harmat et al., 2008). Most studies were done without a control group, in combination with some other treatment, or “there were methodological problems of mixed age groups, small sample size, lack of randomization, unbalanced groups, and lack of rationale for the choice of music intervention,” thus making it difficult to judge the validity of these studies’ results reliably (Lai et al., 2005)....   [tags: Research Analysis] 1757 words
