An ecological footprint measures how much of the planet's resources you use, and converts this to the amount of land needed to provide the resources and assimilate your waste. It is measured in global hectares (a hectare is about the size of a soccer field). It includes: . The amount of building m…aterials you use in your home and workplace . The amount of water you use in your home, workplace and garden . The fossil fuels (oil, coal, wood and natural gas) needed . to provide the power to run your home and workplace . to bring your food from all over the world . to power your vehicles and transport . to carry away and dispose of your waste. . A recent study (October 2008) ranks the top ten countries with the highest ecological footprint per head as: . United Arab Emirates . United States . Kuwait . Denmark . Australia . New Zealand . Canada . Norway . Estonia . Ireland. It is what you leave behind such as a foot print at the park. Only in this place the foot print is the resources you use up during a life time. ( Full Answer )

A carbon footprint is the amount of carbon dioxide that one personcreates and uses with all the things he or she does. It is how much damage on the environment that something has. Thecarbon footprint for a bottle of water would add up the negativeenvironmental impact of manufacturing plastic bottles and truckemissions for delivering the water. Your house would have a carbonfootprint. There are websites that help you determine carbon footprints A person's carbon footprint is defined by looking at how much ofwhat they do in their lives contributes even a small amount toglobal warming. Such things include recycling, driving where it ispossible to walk and not switching off house lights. We can reduceour carbon footprint by being more ecologically friendly. Carbon footprint is a measure of the impact our activities have onthe environment, and in particular climate change.

Carbon footprint is a measure of the impact our activities have onthe environment, and in particular climate change. It relates tothe amount of greenhouse gases produced in our day-to-day livesthrough burning fossil fuels for electricity, heating andtransportation etc. (The amount of greenhouse gas …released by an organism.) The carbon footprint is a measurement of all greenhouse gases weindividually produce and has units of tonnes (or kg) of carbondioxide equivalent. Carbon footprints: A carbon footprint is the amount of carbon dioxide that one personor one activity creates. It is suggested as a measure of how muchdamage on the environment that something has. The carbon footprintfor a bottle of water would add up the negative environmentalimpact of manufacturing plastic bottles and truck emissions fordelivering the water. Your house would have a carbon footprint.Some activities have an indirect carbon footprint by removing"carbon sinks", i.e. removing things that would remove carbondioxide. The most obvious ones are the massive deforestation goingon in many tropical areas through slash-and-burn agriculture,mining, etc. Reducing carbon footprints: You could lower the carbonfootprint of your house by doing things like using CFL lighting andenergy efficient appliances, and adding insulation. There arewebsites that help you determine carbon footprints. It is alsopossible to reduce net carbon footprint by adding plants whichabsorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen to the atmosphere.

Answer . A Housing or Construction Defect is a building flaw or design mistake that reduces the value of the home, and/or causes a dangerous condition. Some defects are obvious (such as water seepage) but many are less obvious and do not become apparent until years after a building was constru…cted. A construction defect can arise from a variety of factors, such as poor workmanship or the use of inferior materials. Common examples of housing and construction defects are water leakage, faulty electrical or heating systems in a home, indoor mold growth, dry rot, and unstable landscaping. ( Full Answer )
The term "builder" usually refers to the general contractor who is responsible for building the home and subcontracting other contractors to complete the project.
Answer . \nIt could be there were mistakes made somewhere in the design or contruction of the building that conflicks with the building codes. Or the building is rotted out and may fall apart in the next six months.
Same as genetic footprinting, only at a high throughput, systems level way. Typically you use a transposon library to insert mutations to cells that inactivate genes (you assume one transposon/inactivation per cell). Then you trascription profile (dna microarray, rna-seq) after selection (whatever y…ou want to select for, growth, resistance etc) and try to map the mutations/genes inactivations to the fitness changes in the cells. For example if you select for growth in a particular environment and the deletion of a gene confers this, then during selection that mutant will be over-represented, so when you run a microarray, you will see no expression of the deleted gene in reference with the wild type strain.

Answer . The typical "grandfather clause" relates to the applicability of the latest building code to things that were already installed under a previous code (i.e., previously allowed). You may need a waiver or to have the old work re-inspected for insurance reasons. There are several situati…ons that may arise: . the work was done to 1947 code and is still "safe"; . the work was done in 1947 but not inspected or otherwise clearly safe; . the installer in 1947 ignored the code but did it "safe enough"; . the installation was never safe or done to code; . or, even though the work was done to 1947 code and is still "safe", the current code does not permit that type of wiring or structure in particularly hazardous circumstances. . For example, a previous residential owner may have hired a licensed electrician in 1948 who did the installation to 1947 code, had it approved by an inspector, and it has never been modified. Over the years, the residence became used as a pre-school. However, Life Safety Code 2007 may prohibit that type of wiring in a pre-school occupancy, and no intelligent fire marshal is going to jeopardize the safety of children intentionally. Therefore, even though the previous use was "grandfathered" for residential use, it may be prohibited (in the interest of public safety) for the present type of use, and should not be allowed to remain in the old condition. Depending upon the jurisdiction, the wiring may need to be replaced even if the use reverts to the previously permitted use because it no longer qualifies as "grandfathered" once it was converted to another use. Similarly, your insurance company may balk at providing coverage for work that no longer meets code (stairs too narrow or steep, old furnace ducts, railings too short, etc), if you can afford to make upgrades and avoid known hazards.

A footprint, from a construction point of view, is the projected area on the ground or basement, upon witch the construction is to be placed. In other words it is the total consumed horizontal area of the vertical span of the object. An example of this Is the Eiffel Tower. The footprint of the Eiff…el Tower is the total square under it, not just the four plates it stands on. ( Full Answer )
The water footprint is an indicator of freshwater use that looks at both direct and indirect water use of a consumer or producer. The water footprint of an individual, community or business is defined as the total volume of freshwater that is used to produce the goods and services consumed by the in…dividual or community or produced by the business. Water use is measured in terms of water volumes consumed (evaporated) and/or polluted per unit of time. A water footprint can be calculated for a particular product, for any well-defined group of consumers (e.g. an individual, family, village, city, province, state or nation) or producers (e.g. a public organization, private enterprise or economic sector). The water footprint is a geographically explicit indicator, not only showing volumes of water use and pollution, but also the locations. For more information, go to the following website: http://www.waterfootprint.org/?page=files/home This website is the official website of the "water footprint" and you can find out more information about this topic. There is also a glossary on the website if the above answer does not answer the question you had in mind :) ( Full Answer )

A human footprint is what a person leaves behind when he or she walks in a soft surface such as mud, wet sand, or tracks mud or dirt onto another surface. It is created by the foot touching the ground and pressing into the soft surface.
You would do the crime scene thing in old novels where the character makes a barrier around the print out of like paper or something and then fills it in with plaster. However long it takes plaster is however long it will take you to get a print. They always do human prints, but it could work for an…imal prints too. If it's in snow, well, my only suggestion is to get a camera. And a ruler. So you can tell how big it is later. This would be a ton more convenient than carrying around plaster with you.

First you have to build the muscle. After the muscle is built, then you can define it. You must have a good cardio work out and a good balanced diet. Also you must continue weight training, but do less weight with higher reps.
A carbon footprint is a measure of the impact human activities have on the environment in terns of the amount of greenhouse gases produced, measured in units of carbon dioxide.
This means that a footprint was once made in mud or other softmaterial, which later turned to stone and preserved (or saved) theshape of the footprint inside of it.

There have been learned people who have asserted this is not possible. There have been others who assert that it is. I am one of the later. Please consider this: Suppose you build a generating plant that burns methane gas leaking from a landfill to produce electricity. It burns methane against atmos…pheric oxygen to produce carbon dioxide and water. For each molecule of methane used, there is one molecule of carbon dioxide produced. Each molecule of methane is 37 times as powerful as carbon dioxide as a global warming gas. Therefore, the burning of methane that would otherwise be released reduces global warming, giving the process a negative carbon footprint. In fairness, I should point out that for each molecule of methane, there will be two atoms of water, in addition to the carbon dioxide, in the output. Water vapor is also a greenhouse gas. But the water produced would can be condensed immediately without any environmental effect, so I am not considering it in the calculation. ( Full Answer )

as simple as the answer may appear civic buildings are building that are used not for residential purposes but for commercilal purposes. This may include hotels, banks, ware houses, hospitals, worship centres, schools etc...
It did rather exceed it's footprint, but the reasons it didn't "fall over" are as follows; 1. The structural failure was towards the top, so the bottom was fine and thus all stayed upright until the vertical shock loads of the falling floors above caused failure, which was progressive and local. 2. …The walls were 'tied in' by the floors, so did not individually 'fall out', except for the small components after failure. There would certainly also have been a central 'core', with stairs, lift shafts etc, which would have failed last, so each floor would be likely to have 'slid' down around the core on impact of the floors above, before the core itself failed. 2.

Platypus footprints are rarely seen. They are likely to be visible only near freshwater creeks and rivers in eastern Australia.
Yes, footprint is a noun, a singular, common, concrete, compound noun; a word for a thing.
A footprint's depth is determined by the amount of weight above it. So two people with the same size foot, but different weights, will produce footprints of different depths.
Yes. Ecological footprint is the measure of human demand on Earth's ecosystem and carbon footprint is the total set of direct and indirect greenhouse gas emissions.
The ecological footprint is a measure of human demand of the Earth's ecosystems. It is a standardized measure of demand for natural capital (resources from nature) that may be contrasted with the planet's ecological capacity to regenerate.
