...amoebae after they’ve been filmed in a Smith professor’s lab? It turns out that they’re prepared to reveal quite a bit about themselves.

The line graph above is telling us how sweet foods can cause tooth decay. Tooth decay is caused by the high level acidity which is below 5.5 ph level in our mouth which is produced by those sweet foods. The graph shows us the relationship between the ph level of acidity and the time elapsed after eating sweet foods. At this graph, there are 3 tested sweet foods: fruit sugar, cane sugar and honey. These sweet foods could cause different acid levels in mouth when they are consumed.
In the first 5 minutes when somebody consumes honey, the acidity level will increase approximately 2 levels of ph, while when the other consumes fruit, it will dropped around 3 levels of ph, and even 3.5 level of ph when eating cane sugar. For honey consumption, the next 5 minutes the ph level will remain constant at ph level of 4.75. At 15 following minutes, the ph level will increased gradually and will be stabilized at ph level of 7 in the next minutes. Whereas, if someone eats fruit sugar, it will need about 30 minutes for the ph level to rise slowly and level off at ph level of 7, yet cane sugar needs around 35 minutes to get ph level of 7.
To sum up, the most destructive effect to the teeth comes from cane sugar which takes the ph level below 5.5 at approximately 32 minutes. At the next minutes the ph level is projected still to rise slowly and not yet stabilized. When somebody consume sweet foods, especially candies, it is better to brush the...

Outline Informative Speech
Topic: On –Line Dating
General Purpose: To Inform
Specific Purpose: To inform my audience about the history and three major aspects of on-line dating.
Thesis Statement: There are some key facts and background data to online dating with its history of negative and positive outcomes, and the steps you could take to date safety and effectively.
Let’s talk fun! Let’s talk on-line dating!
Now, most of us are familiar with the concept of on-line dating. On-line dating originates from the mid 1990’s and its popularity has been increasing in recent years. Some of us remember the popular Tom Hanks movie “You’ve Got Mail” in 1998 and with its release on-line dating started to gain full speed. But, did you know that the first matrimonial service was created in a form of newspaper ads in 1700, just shortly after appearance of the first newspaper? That’s according to the article History of On-Line Dating, of course, I found on line.
Living in technologically inclined society, I am certain that some of us listening to the beginning of this presentation are probably already thinking: “What else is there to know about on-line dating?!” But did you know that according to just cited article, “in 2007 Americans alone spent over $500 000 000 on online dating”? Apparently, for less than a decade on-line dating has not only become highly popular, but it has transformed into industry.
