It's the adults’ role to help articulate their needs and concerns and to give them information and support to help them communicate these appropriately in the right quarters.

7.1 Introduction

So far we have presented two pieces of evidence pointing to the occurrence of a big bang: the redshift of the galaxies (indicating the continuing expansion of the Universe), and the 3 K radiation (the remnant of the primordial radiation). But there is a third imprint such a big bang ought to have left on our present-day world. We cannot at this juncture trace out the full sequence of events following the instant of the big bang (that can only be done after we have worked through the next two

2.7.1 Recognizing geological problems

The most profitable coal mines are those that possess unbroken, horizontal seams of constant thickness and quality. In mines where this is not so, profit levels will depend on the ability of the mine geologist to predict changes in the seam before they are encountered at the face.

Geological problems fall into two categories — gradual changes and sudden changes. Where a change is gradual, such as a seam thinning or splitting, data from boreholes in advance of the workings, supplemente
