In an article called “Exploring Magnetic Fields with a Compass,” Brandon Lunk and Robert Beichner discuss how to measure the strength of magnetic fields using a compass. They explain,
A compass works by allowing a small magnetized needle to line up with the horizontal component of the net magnetic field in its vicinity. In most open places only the Earth’s magnetic field is strong enough to significantly affect the compass needle. However, in the presence of another magnetic field of comparable strength (say, due to a magnet or a current carrying wire), the compass needle will “deflect” from north to point in a new direction. . .(1)
In an article published by the Washington Post about the effects of killing in war, Tim Kudo wrote,
While I don’t know why individual veterans resort to suicide, I can say that the ethical damage of war may be worse than the physical injuries we sustain. To properly wage war, you have to recalibrate your moral compass. Once you return from the battlefield, it is difficult or impossible to repair it.
Seek the Lord while you can find him.
Call on him now while he is near.
7 Let the wicked change their ways
and banish the very thought of doing wrong.
Let them turn to the Lord that he may have mercy on them.
Yes, turn to our God, for he will forgive generously.
