Ask Andy MONSOONS Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Anne age of for her What exactly is a We are told that the monsoon was named with an old Arabic word meaning Many of us have the idea that the monsoon is a deluging wet season that descends on regions of the Far East. This is only part of the story A monsoon is a steady wind that reverses directions with the seasons In monsoon it brings six months of dry weather and six months of rainy moisture. During the scorching summer we go to the beaches to cool off. The water is cooler because the land absorbs more of the sun's heat. This affects the air above land and ocean The light air over the land rises and heavier breezes blow shoreward from over the ocean The land gains and also loses heat faster than the sea So at evening the airy sea breezes are reversed. Sea breezes are daily weather events on a local scale The monsoon is a seasonal weather event on an almost global scale But both events are caused by the unequal heating of land and sea areas. In both currents of light rising air draw in winds from the cooler land or sea. The world's major monsoon climates are in two vast one on either side of the high Himalayas. One determines the seasonal climate of Japan and parts of mainland China The other is the famous monsoon region including India and parts of Southeast Asia. Here the winter season draws a northwest wind from the great Gobi Desert. This dry monsoon wind blows relentlessly from December to about sucking up moisture and parching the soil. the wind makes an about face For the next six it blows from the bearing loads of moisture absorbed from the Indian Ocean. This is the rainy season monsoon wind. During the next six people of the monsoon region expect cloudy skies with plenty of showers and occasional deluges. This is the world's most extreme monsoon region and life there is adjusted to six months of drought and six months of deluge. But similar weather conditions create milder monsoons in many other parts of the globe. As in all weather there is a conflict of different air masses warm or damp or dry In this the massive contrasts build up with seasonal changes over land and sea areas. In the continents are warmer than the oceans and in winter they are cooler than the oceans The air gets its warmth from the land or sea below it and warm air tends to be lighter than cool air In the land tends to build up masses of low pressure. This draws in moisture ladened monsoon winds from the sea. In when the sea is wanner than the the air pressure above it tends to be lower than it is over the land Hence the wind blows from the opposite perhaps from the deep dry heart of a continent. This is when the bone dry monsoon blows over the land on its way to regions of lower air pressure over the sea. by chil- dren of Herald readers should be mailed to P.O. Box.

When I move my bowels there is usually blood This only happens once in a while I am 15 and no one in my family has ever had cancer Is there any other way I can tell if I have it before going for a Could this be something other than cancer' Would you please hurry with this it's very important to me. Dear Reader There is only one thing to do about bleeding from the get an examination That is true for all ages. It is less likely that you have cancer of the but it can and does occur in young adults. Even if you don't have it is still important to find out what is causing the bleeding. The most common cause is hemorrhoids. You can have those internally where you can't see them. cancer of the rectum can cause pressure on the veins in the rectum and cause hemorrhoids. So you shouldn't neglect having an examination just because you think it's hemorrhoids. Early diagnosis of cancer of the rectum often means it can be cured Letting it go can be a disaster.
