Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 24, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 THE LETHBHIDW HBHM.0 Ask Andy MAGIC WATER Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Bruce age of Hoyt for his question Why does draiaiif water twirl in a clockwise It happens every as if by magic. You pull the plug from a tub or basin and the water starts to drain straight down. Then before you know the water is swirling down in a clockwise whirlpool. Strange to south of the drain water swirls around in an opposite counterclockwise direction. What's even these happenings occur because the rotating earth is a sphere. The earth rotates toward the east and because it is a its surface rotates at different speeds. The equator rotates fastest because it is the largest circle of latitude. North and south of the the surface rotation speed diminishes and dwindles to a standstill at the two opposite poles Now imagine what this does to the north and south trade winds that set out from latitudes 30 degrees toward the equator. Where they the earth below them is rotating at 403 meters per second As they the rotational speed increases to 465 meters per second at the equator. As the ground beneath them moves faster toward the trade winds lag behind the slant toward the equator. Suppose you launch a rocket at a target miles to the south As it the earth's rotation moves the ground beneath it at a faster and faster rate toward the east If your firing squad is north of the the travelling rocket will veer to the right. South of the the rotation of the round earth veers all objects moving above the surface to the left. The same thing happens to moving surface objects that are not affected by friction such as escaping drain water. This strange happening was figured out by a French mathematician named Gaspard Coriolis and it is named in his honor. Some peo- ple call it the Coriolis which seems to suggest a determined push of some kind. Actually no force is in- volved and moving objects merely veer or drift off course because the earth rotates beneath them. For this reason it seems more sensible to call the strange event the Coriolis effect All it does is affect the course of moving objects. The Coriolis effect veers all winds north of the equator to the right. As hurricane winds blow toward the central eye of rising they are twisted toward the right and spiral around in a clockwise direc- tion. The same thing happens to water when it escapes down a drain. In the Northern the Coriolis effect veers streaming drain water to the right and it spirals down a clockwise direction. South of the the twisting effect is reversed There the round rotating earth veers winds and other friction-free moving objects to the left. Winds blowing toward a storm centre swerve left and spiral in a counterclockwise direction. Water escaping down a drain veers left and swirls around in a counterclockwise whirlpool.

LAMB I am 50 years old and my younger child is now 23. My husband and I have used the withdrawal'system in family planning I have not had a period for 17 and prior to that I had missed 15 months When would it be absolutely safe to start natural I had no trouble getting pregnant when we were having our two children Would contraceptive foam be I do not want to start the pill. My doctor is an older man and seems reluc- tant to even discuss this DEAR READER Your letter is of interest because it is an example where the withdrawal method worked satisfactorily. I hasten to add that it isn't always that good Statistics show that it is one of the least reliable methods of birth control. You are not the only who has assured me that they had good success with the method. Too often a small amount of the man's secretions will be spill- ed and even the smallest drop contains enough sperm cells to induce a pregnancy. Studies also show that the contracep- tive foams are not much better in preventing pregnan- cy Of the temporary measures the pill and the IUD have the best record. I can understand your reluc- tance to take the pill at this stage in although it is often useful in helping some women through the menopause. The various pills are combinations of female hormones and often work just as well as other hormone replacements used to treat menopause symptoms. I can also understand your doctor's reluctance to discuss this matter with you Most doctors do not wish to say positively when a woman can't get pregnant and for a good not nice to be fooled by mother nature biological events have a habit of being unreliable. In a woman who has not menstruated for two years after 50 years of age is less likelv to get pregnant. I'm hedging because one can't be positive. Studies of the cells from an examination will provide information about the amount of female hormone that is being produced coupled with dail.y temperature can be used by vour doctor to gain a pretty good idea of how likely you are to get even that won't provide an ab- solute answer.
