How does the warden’s role affect the correctional system?

What are extrusive rocks? User: Waht are intrusive rocks?
Weegy: Sir/Madam, Intrusive igneous rocks are found in mines and tunnels or on the surface where they have been exposed by geological uplifting and by erosion. Intrusive rock formations vary from thin sheets to huge, irregular masses. [ Magma that forms intrusive rocks solidifies relatively slowly; and so, most intrusive rocks have larger crystals than do extrusive rocks. ] (More)

What are some differences between faults and folds?
Weegy: Folding and faulting are both caused by stress in the Earth's crust exceeding the strength of the material. [ However there are differences in the confining stresses and or temperatures at which these two processes occur. Folding tends to occur at small strain rates (the speed at which the material changes shape or is squashed is very small), at higher confining pressures and with higher temperatures at greater depths in the Earth, usually within the asthenosphere or mesosphere. All of these factors act to stop the formation of fractures within the material leading to ductile deformation which is why the rocks can fold rather than break. Faulting occurs where strain rates are large and there are relatively low temperatures and confining pressures at shallower depths within the earth's lithosphere. These conditions allow fractures to propagate through the rock causing faulting. ] (More)

What are some areas around the world that have been affected by glacial action?
Weegy: By the fall of 2007 it became clear to many economists that the current downturn is different from previous recessions and that monetary policy would not be effective in bringing us back to full employment. Past recessions generally began after the [ [ Federal Reserve had raised interest rates sharply to counter excess inflation. When the Fed felt that it had succeeded, it reversed policy and lowered the interest rate. That was enough to trigger a recovery, driven in large part by the responsiveness of housing starts to lower interest rates. In contrast, the current downturn was not due to high interest rates and therefore could not be fixed by a reversal of Fed policy. The seeds of this recession were sown in the underpricing of risk and the resulting excessive leverage. A sharp rise in defaults on subprime mortgages alerted market participants that risk had been mismeasured and therefore underpriced. The resulting general repricing of risk caused sharp falls in the prices of mortgage-backed securities, of share prices, and of the values of homes. The massive destruction of household wealth led to a sharp decline in consumer spending, followed by falls in business investment and commercial real estate values. The continuing declines in the value of mortgage backed securities and of the derivatives based on them reflected the fear of an increasing future volume of mortgage defaults. This eroded the capital of financial institutions, undermining their willingness to make loans. The result was a dysfunctional credit market that no longer provided credit or responded to changes in interest rates. The Federal Reserve therefore could not reverse the downturn by lowering interest rates. Although it reduced the federal funds rate substantially, mortgage rates and corporate bond rates remained high. Even if mortgage rates had come down, the continuing sharp decline in house prices would have prevented a rise in housing starts. By the end of 2007, an ... (More)
