 News: First Choice Study   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
The status of physical education is particularly relevant at this time of growing concern about the reduced levels of physical activity and increased levels of obesity, diabetes and related health problems for all age groups.
Physical education is being assessed by state approved assessment in five states (Kentucky, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New York and West Virginia) and the District of Columbia, and assessments are being developed and instituted in Maine, Missouri and South Carolina.
Others expressed concerns over the physical condition of their students and the fact that students can avoid physical education by participating in other courses, activities, etc. One state expressed concern that the requirement for physical education may be dropped.

Dualism: mental states and processes -- or at least some of them -- are utterly different in their nature from physical states and processes.
Broadly physical property: a property which either is recognised in formal statements of theories in physics, or else is reducible to properties which are so recognised.
Physicalism: the claim that (i) every particular thing is a physical object possessing only broadly physical properties, and (ii) there are no properties or other abstract entities except the broadly physical properties.

 Child Custody Policies and Divorce Rates in the US
Joint physical custody is usually defined as a schedule where the child has at least a 30/70 time share between parents, although 50/50 arrangements are a common form of shared parenting (Ricci, 1981).
For the 19 states in the NCHS sample, the average rate of joint physical custody awards in 1990 was 15.7%, and in two states joint physical custody was awarded in nearly half of the cases.
States with higher levels of joint custody had an average four-year decline in the divorce rate approximately double that for states with medium levels of joint custody.

 Physical Properties
Physical properties are used to observe and describe matter.
Physical changes are related to physical properties since some measurements require that changes be made.

 Phase (matter) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In the physical sciences, a phase is a set of states of a macroscopic physical system that have relatively uniform chemical composition and physical properties (i.e.
This microscopic behavior of water molecules gives rise to the physical properties of liquid water with which we are all familiar.
In general, we say that two different states of a system are in different phases if there is an abrupt change in their physical properties while transforming from one state to the other.

 Physical State/Latent Heat
The three physical states of matter that we normally encounter are solid, liquid, and gas.
When water is in the solid state, as ice, the molecules are bonded to each other in a solid crystalline structure.
At the surface of liquid water, molecules are continually moving back and forth from the liquid state to the vapor state.

 States of Matter
Many of these states are well defined and have interesting properties, while others seem to be intermediate between commonly found substances and difficult to define or recognize.
Gasses, liquids and solids are examples of physical states which can be treated separately from electrical states, magnetic states and optical states.
In a plasma state, a substance is a mixture of neutral molecules, ions, atoms, clusters of atoms and free electrons.

Water has three physical states it can be a gas, liquid or solid.
The gaseous state has the most energy of the three states, the molecules are moving quickly and independently.
The physical change in state from a liquid to a gas is called Boiling Point.

 Putnam's "The Nature of Mental States"
The functional state of a system is instantiated physically - a functional state just is a physical state of some sort or another - but it needn't be the same physical state each time an organism is in the same functional state, and this is the advantage of functionalism over materialism.
Things that feel pain do so not because of the particular brain state they are in, or because of some other physical state, but because they are in a certain functional state.
What it is to be in that state does not depend on how that state is physically realized, but rather on a description of it in terms of inputs and outputs.

 United States: Physical Geography
The conterminous United States may be divided into seven broad physiographic divisions: from east to west, the Atlantic–Gulf Coastal Plain; the Appalachian Highlands; the Interior Plains; the Interior Highlands; the Rocky Mountain System; the Intermontane Region; and the Pacific Mountain System.
The terrain of the N United States was formed by the great continental ice sheets that covered N North America during the late Cenozoic Era.
The southern edge of the ice sheet is roughly traced by a line of terminal moraines extending west from E Long Island and then along the course of the Ohio and Missouri rivers to the Rocky Mts.; land north of this line is covered by glacial material.
