  1. The Effects of Global Warming.

Thesis:Global warming has resulted in drastic effects on the physical,social, and economic systems.

  1. Physical Impacts

  1. Global warming has drastic effects on the weather.

  1. Extreme weather conditions like droughts, high sea level, and extreme cyclone activities.

  2. Rising sea levels cause the disappearance of glaciers.

  3. Change in climate such as melting ice and hot temperatures (Drake 5-7).

  1. Depletion of oxygen dissolved in the sea may have dire consequences on marine life.

  2. Increase of carbon dioxide dissolving in the water causes acidification of oceans

  1. Social system impacts

  1. Change in climate affects food supply because the increased temperatures, extreme events, and high carbon dioxide levels, reduce food production (Xu, 78).

  2. Evaporation and pollution results in reduced fresh water content.

  3. Migration of humans and animals may lead to conflicts over natural resources.

  4. The increase in global temperatures has negative impacts on the biological and the physical systems

  1. The rise in global temperatures will kill marine biodiversity and ecosystems.

  2. Extinction of plants that grow in cold regions and hot temperatures that cause wild and forest fires (Dinser, Colpan and Kadioglu, 410).

  1. Fresh water ecosystem will be disrupted, as most species will disappear.

  2. Effects on the environment

  1. Reduction of the ozone layer, depletion of oxygen in the oceans, melting ice, and increased carbon emission will change the global climate.

  1. Economic impacts

  1. The fisheries, forestry, and livestock industries will decline, hence reducing national net income (Dinser, Colpan and Kadioglu, 375).

  1. The Importance of Sleep

Thesis:Lack of sufficient sleep causes memory impairment, poor health, anddevelopment of chronic diseases.

  1. Sleep promotes and maintains a healthy body and weight (Arden, 54).

  1. Lack of sleep slows down metabolism resulting in fat storage in the body.

  2. Sleeping for less than seven hours increases the levels of stress hormones.

  3. Insufficient sleep increases the resistance of insulin that causes type 2 diabetes.

  4. Sleep deprivation increases appetite, hunger, and craving for foods rich in carbohydrates.

  1. Sleep consolidates memory and enhances the learning process (LaFay, 77).

  1. Sleep facilitates gaining of insight, learning of new information and development of motor skills.

  2. Rapid Eye Movement (REM) sleep accelerates the conversion of short-term memories into long-term memories and the consolidation of the existing long-term memories (Ledger).

  3. Lack of sufficient sleep negatively affects the brain due to extreme emotions, and mood manifested through rage, depression, and fear (Arden, 54).

  1. Lack of enough sleep results in the development of chronic conditions like Hemoglobin A1c, obesity, cardiovascular ailments, Type 2 Diabetes, poor immunity, and depression (LaFay, 50).

  1. How To Stop Memory Loss

Thesis:Memory loss is caused by lifestyle and can be stopped by gettingenough sleep, eating healthy diets and enough water, socialinteractions, and physical exercise.

  1. Physical and mental stimulating activities keep the brain active (Colbert, 65).

  2. Sufficient sleep consolidates memories and improves on physical and mental alertness in learning, concentration and recalling of information (Miller, 11).

  3. Exercise and physical fitness, increase blood flow to the brain and helps support a sharp memory (Colbert, 65).

  4. Social interactions eliminate stress and depression that enhance to memory loss (Chatterjee and Coslett, 119).

  5. Taking healthy meals and enough water result in proper brain development (Colbert, 19).

  6. Smoking and alcohol limit the amount absorption of oxygen in the brain, resulting in depression and memory loss (Miller, 12).
