Grade 9

A true sense of freedom

Module 19

To communicate ideas accurately

Activity 1:

To communicate ideas accurately and coherently

[lo 2.2]

Imagine what freedom means to different people.

  • You may wonder if freedom does indeed exist throughout the world. To children in war-torn countries or in detention, freedom may seem an impossible dream. To those suffering poverty or even emotional traumas, freedom may seem non-existent.
  • Now find pictures in magazines or newspapers, which depict freedom as you imagine it could be. After pasting them on a sheet of paper, write a caption for each picture.
  • Also write WHY you have chosen these pictures to symbolise freedom.
  • Now “show and tell” the class about your pasted pictures as well as your reasons for choosing them.

Rough work:

1. Captions for pictures:

2. Reasons for choosing pictures:

Activity 2:

To evaluate writer’s point of view and to use language to investigate questions

[lo 3.8.1]

Comprehension - Freedom must be protected

Read the following article very attentively. Answer the questions that follow in full sentences and in your own words as far as possible.

1. History shows us that people have always been concerned about human rights, as can be seen in many religious writings and cultures. The individual is seen as most important in some while in others the group is the major unit.

2. There seems to be a consensus about basic values such as respect for human life and dignity, tolerance for those who are different or who have different ideas, the solving of differences by non-violent means and fair and just punishment for those who break society’s laws.

After the Second World War, fourteen countries met to draw up the Universal Declaration of Human Rights as a protest against the atrocities which occurred during the war, especially genocide, which is the planned killing of people merely because of who they are. Six million Jews were killed between 1939 and 1945 just because they were Jews. The UDHR was written for all countries, whether they are economically strong or not.

4. Today, many people are involved in human rights organizations. These organizations want to make people aware of human rights abuses throughout the world so that these abuses can be stopped. Non-governmental agencies such as Amnesty International and the International Committee of the Red Cross are involved with the plight of prisoners-of-war and prisoners in general. They try to ensure that standards of treatment are humane at all times.

5. You, as an individual, should be willing to take a stand to protect Human Rights so that freedom from abuse becomes a reality.

6. Firstly, you could approach family and friends, youth groups, women’s organizations, labour or business groups, religious groups, political parties, national human rights groups or professional unions if you are aware of human rights abuses.

7. Secondly, you need to consider different tactics or strategies which could include public meetings, exhibits, displays, plays, writing to the press, circulating petitions, placing advertisements or contacting local radio talk shows, research, negotiation, arbitration or mediation or participation in demonstrations.

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.

good afternoon madam
what is system testing
what is the application of nanotechnology?
In this morden time nanotechnology used in many field . 1-Electronics-manufacturad IC ,RAM,MRAM,solar panel etc 2-Helth and Medical-Nanomedicine,Drug Dilivery for cancer treatment etc 3- Atomobile -MEMS, Coating on car etc. and may other field for details you can check at Google
anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
I'm interested in Nanotube
this technology will not going on for the long time , so I'm thinking about femtotechnology 10^-15
can nanotechnology change the direction of the face of the world
Prasenjit Reply
At high concentrations (>0.01 M), the relation between absorptivity coefficient and absorbance is no longer linear. This is due to the electrostatic interactions between the quantum dots in close proximity. If the concentration of the solution is high, another effect that is seen is the scattering of light from the large number of quantum dots. This assumption only works at low concentrations of the analyte. Presence of stray light.
