We encounter a variety of oppositions each and avery day. However they are such a part of our everyday life that we do not give them much thought when we encounter them. The oppsositon of climate and closure is one oppostion that we as Minnesotans deal with on a daily basis. However with our drastic climate changes how we deal with this oppostion changes from season to season. In the summer months we are confronted by intense heat and humidity. One way that we respond to this opposition is by using air conditioning to cool our homes and cars. However we could also respond to the oppsition of heat by simply staying very well hydrated. In the winter we are faced again with the opposition of climate but this time we deal with the cold. We respond to the cold by insulating our homes and heating them. We also can respond to this oppostion by dressing warmly in multiple layers. The opposition of climate also forces us to adress the issue of precipatation. We respond to this problem in our bulidings by installing rain gutters to control the flow of wate. Also we have sloped roofs to prevent the accumulation of snow on our buildings. Also we have even gone as far as heating our driveways to cause the snow to melt in the winter.
Another opposition that we encounter regularly is the oppostion of gravity and movement. We encounter the opposition of gravity in the homes and buildings we live in and use every day. The force of gravity opposes our desire to build higher and larger building. We are able to respond to this opposition by using truss sytems to make the building more rigid and thus able to withold a greater force from gravity. We can also respond to this opposition by reinforcing concrete with steel rods in the buildings we build.
