CHAPTER I
IN WHICH PHILEAS FOGG
AND PASSEPARTOUT
ACCEPT EACH OTHER,
THE ONE AS MASTER,
THE OTHER AS MAN

M

r. Phileas Fogg lived, in 1872, at No. 7, Saville Row,
Burlington Gardens, the house in which Sheridan died in 1814. He was one of the most noticeable members of the Reform Club, though he seemed always to avoid attracting attention; an enigmatical personage, about whom little was known, except that he was a polished man of the world. People said that he resembled Byron—at least that his head was Byronic; but he was a bearded, tranquil Byron, who might live on a thousand years without growing old.
Certainly an Englishman, it was more doubtful whether Phileas Fogg was a Londoner. He was never seen on
‘Change, nor at the Bank, nor in the counting-rooms of the

‘City”; no ships ever came into London docks of which he was the owner; he had no public employment; he had never been entered at any of the Inns of Court, either at the
Temple, or Lincoln’s Inn, or Gray’s Inn; nor had his voice ever resounded in the Court of Chancery, or in the Exchequer, or the Queen’s Bench, or the Ecclesiastical Courts. He certainly was not a manufacturer; nor was he a merchant or a gentleman farmer. His name was strange to the scientific and learned societies, and he never was known to take part in the sage deliberations of the Royal Institution or the
London Institution, the Artisan’s Association, or the Institution of Arts and Sciences. He belonged, in fact, to none of the numerous societies which swarm in the English capital, from the Harmonic to that of the Entomologists, founded mainly for the purpose of abolishing pernicious…...

Day to Day Effects

...Extra Credit 1 Every day, every minute, in fact every second, we are interacting and building connections with everything we see and do. For this assignment, I want to focus on my encounter with Starbucks staff. I probably am one of the biggest Starbucks fanatic anyone will every encounter. I love the thrill of going to Starbucks, and anticipating and thinking about what my new Starbucks concoction will be. Reflecting upon my Starbucks experiences, I have come to a conclusion of whether we know it or not, our unintended communications turn into a relationships that we fail to see. To test my thinking and prove it valid, I went to the Starbucks that I have been going to for years now. Here goes my thoughts, “What do I order? What am I feeling today? What is the new drink that came out?”. As I walked in, I examined the same feeling of thrill and excitement that rushes upon me. As I wait in the long, almost endless lines at Starbucks, I especially examine other people’s orders and get inspired for my order. As the line lessens, I am finally able to reach upon my decision of my order. Instantly, the woman taking my order my order found me quit familiar and said, “hello, how’s your day today? Would you like chai latte or caramel macchiato?” and I found it surprising on how she knew exactly what I want. Reflecting upon the situation, I realize how going to Starbucks often, I run into the same people, the same staff and essentially built a relationship that we don’t realize.......

The Darkest Day

...Jackson 1 Professor Puklin English 101 4 September 2014 The Darkest Day Time is one thing man has absolutely no control over. All we can do as human beings is simply make the most out of every moment we are given. Some utilize that time, and others waste it by wallowing in entertainment. I happen to be the latter of the two. I would consider myself an avid gamer, I have ample followers on Twitter, and I have more friends on Facebook than in real life. I couldn’t live without Netflix, I practically live in my home theatre, and I am currently learning C++. I want to mention that I did a full blackout as in I practically turned off the power in my room. My life is so entangled with electronics that this blackout felt like prison. Well the food was better, and I wasn’t afraid to drop the soap, but you get the point. It felt as if a part of me had died. I couldn’t even play Dishonored! I hate that I was given this mission just as I was gaining ground in a game I just started but not being able to play one game was terrible enough, not even turning on any of my consoles (which consist of my Xbox One, Xbox 360, Ps3, Ps2, PSvita, & PC) was torture. Being an avid gamer and all, I feel I spend a large portion of my time playing video games. Not being able to access them when they were right in front of me felt like kicking heroin with the supplier next door. It was honestly a horrific experience and I deserve a medal for staying true to the mission and restraining myself from......

A Day of Nothing and a Day of Activity

...A Day of Nothing and a Day of Activity From what I can recall, I did nothing of particular interest on February 8, so I shall elect to skip talking about it. To make up for the lack, I shall write an excruciatingly long entry for today. As is typical of an exchange student at Kansai Gaidai, I awoke only to begin my journey over to my Japanese class. In class, we played 'Who's Pen Is This?' in order to practice our previously learned grammar lesson. Next, we planned a pretend trip in order to practice another grammar lesson. Finally, we learned a new grammar point before departing. My next activity was to wait 40 minutes so that I could meat Saki and Chiaki again for lunch. This time, I brought my laptop along so that I could share photographs from back home. While waiting, I was joined by Wayne, a Chinese student who I had previously met, and Keisuke. At first, Keisuke swore that Wayne was a Japanese person, but after some effort to convince him otherwise, he believed that he was not. Come 11:30, I took my leave from the boys to join the girls in the cafeteria. Since it was rainy and drab awful outside today, Saki and Chiaki were waiting inside the cafeteria instead of the outside area where they usually wait. After getting food, we ate and talked some. Once finishing, we made our way to the CIE lounge so I could plug in my laptop and begin the show. A wise move plugging it in, I might add, as the presentation lasted about four hours. I began by showing pictures of my......

Earth Day

...1 cinta untuk bumi kita Happy earth day Hari ini bertepatan pada tanggal 22 april , kita memperingati sebagai hari bumi. Namun apakah selama ini kita hanya memperingati hari bumi pada tanggal itu saja ? apakah kita hanya membuang sampah pada tempatnya, mengurangi limbah, listrik, polusi pada hari itu saja ? kalau jawaban sebagian dari kita adalah ‘iya’ maka kasihan bumi kita, mereka hanya kita perhatikan saat tanggal 22 april saja, sedangkan di hari lain, kita sering menyakiti mereka, kita sering membuang sampah sembarangan, memborosokan listrik, dan memperlakukan pohon dengan seenaknya. Padahal, selama ini mereka telah memberikan udara yang segar, hawa yang sejuk, kerindangan, ketenangan, dan menjadi sumber energi bagi kita kaum manusia dan hewan. Bumi semakin lama, semakin tidak terkontrol, semakin panas dan cuaca tidak menentu, es di kutub utara mulai mencair dan banyaknya lahan-lahan di kota besar dibangun ruko-ruko, perumahan, persawahan, dan lain-lain tanpa diimbangi dengan penanaman pohon-pohon penyerap oksigen. Polusi juga semakin memenuhi udara, hawa menjadi panas dan banyaknya karbon dioksida bertebaran dimana-mana, ditambah lagi dengan tempat pembuangan sampah yang semakin hari semakin menggunung, dan tidak terpisahkan antara sampah organik dan sampah non organik. Mungkinkah anak cucu kita dapat merasakan manfaat dari tanaman hidup ? 1 cinta untuk bumi kita, walaupun hanya 1 cinta saja kita berikan untuk bumi kita, jika setiap dari......

Day-to-Day Stress

...Day-to-Day Stress Omar R. Hameen GEN/200 May 17, 2011 Barbara Alston Day-to-Day Stress In the following paper I would like to talk about a problem that causes stress my daily life. I will describe how to gather information to help me solve this problem and where the information can be obtained. In this paper I will talk about my experiences and how I deal various forms of stressors at home and in social settings. Daily stress Stress is a term used by many, is severly misunderstood, and often used to describe a negative condition or emotional state. It is our biological way of dealing with sudden changes in our life. The biggest stressor for me is fatigue.   Most days, my morning starts around 10 a.m.   By 11 a.m., I’m hurrying to the store to grab an energy drink then back home to work on school assignments and apply for jobs online.   At 12 a.m. I start my “work day”, which typically requires cleaning, preparing my daughter for school, and taking care of any outside work that needs to be done.   I usually find myself leaving home at 5 p.m. and heading to pick up my daughter from daycare.   Whether we go to the park, play some type of sports in the yard, or go on a bike ride; I spend the next 3 hours running around behind my 4 year old daughter, using my last bit of stored energy. When our playtime is done we head inside to do her school work and other learning activities.   Spending family time is important, so usually its dinner and a movie until...

...Day-To-Day Life Time Management Lucretia Chadwick GEN/200 Robyann Musil August 8, 2011 In my day-to-day life, I would like to address and solve the problem that I face with time management. I have found that in the past time management has been a major issue, not only in my personal life but also academically and professional. I am starting a new school, have a job and have a family to take care of. I want to make an effort to give all my endeavors my all, in order to do this I would like to refine my time management skills. To develop time management skills I plan on researching a plan of action from the textbook. The information that I have found was in Chapter one. The textbook gives various steps to better time management such as setting goals for you. Goals are an important part of life, but it is even more important for my time management plan. I will be seeking steps that the book suggests for time management and determine which steps will be beneficial for particular part of my life that I will be evaluating. Not all the steps will be beneficial for me, but most will. I will determine which steps will be necessary to use, for example, how my personal life will affect my professional life or how my academic life may affect my personal life. I will begin to set goals for myself before determining a time management plan. I will set short term goals along with long term goals for the part of my life that I need to work on time management plan. I will start......

Decade of 80's in Pakistan

...The decade of 80’s has been a turning point for women in Pakistan. The imposition of Islamisation created unrest amongst women as they were forced to stay back in their houses because, apparently, working with men was against the laws of Islam. At that time, there was a common idea circulating amongst them that they should be given equal opportunities like men. This makes us think if they truly have the rights of being heard before being accused. A number of events of women harassment took place during the Zia regime, under the name of Islamisation. One of whom is, “… More than 70 percent of women in police custody experience physical or sexual abuse at the hands of their jailers…” (Thomas “Police abuse of Women in Pakistan”) Although men think they restrict their women from going out to work as they can’t trust the world, but then the difference between oppression and protection must be understood. This point of view fitted exactly in a men oriented society where women were looked upon as property. The martial law’s proceedings created an atmosphere in the country where individuals took law in their hands and beleaguered women. (Alvi 1328). The women, at that time, were right to stand up against who thought that the presence of a woman in a society is a sign of them. Zia-ul-Haq remained in power for around 11 years, 1977-1988. During this time he imposed ‘Shariah’ (Islamisation) in the country which, apparently, was to implement Islam in true sense. According to Shariah......

That Day

...Life Changing Experiences By: Olivia Son Growing up in the country you could always find me outside playing with my friends or relatives. We would literally go outside the moment we woke up and would not come back inside until bedtime. Between riding four-wheelers, jumping on trampolines, and having mud fights you never knew what we might me getting into that day. I had my share of bumps and bruises along the way but I would not have changed a single minute of it. We all grow up thinking that we are invincible until something happens in your life that changes all that. I remember that day as if it were yesterday. It was a hot summer day just like any other and I was your typical fourteen-year-old girl who wanted to spend all her free time hanging out with her boyfriend. This day was no different. I woke up that morning and of course could not wait to spend time with him. Therefore, I rushed through breakfast and did everything that my mom had asked me to do before he was allowed to come over. Finally, he was at my house and we were deciding what we might get into. It was so hot outside so we decided that we would go swimming and ride my four-wheeler. We figured we would going four-wheeler riding first that way if we got dirty we could just jump into the pool when we got back and wash off. So we changed into our swim suits and headed out. Looking back wearing only a swim suit and flip flops to go riding might not of been the best idea but it was something......

Colombus Day

...Aaron Self Professor Buchholtz ANTH 213 10 October 2012 Columbus Day When I think of Columbus Day, thoughts of childhood appear in my mind before anything else. Spending the day watching parades and hanging out with my friends instead of being at school was always something to look forward to. The romanticized image of who Christopher Columbus was is usually the second thing that arises in my consciousness. In 1492 Columbus sailed the ocean blue, discovery the Americas and paving the way for this great nation to be created. At least that’s what I was taught in elementary and middle school. Now that I am older however, Christopher Columbus doesn’t sound like the hero he used to be. The fact that we celebrate a national holiday in his honor, when a majority of people don’t have a correct impression of him, strikes me as contradictory. This man deserves a day named after him, but doesn’t deserve correct education on his actions and legacy. The correlation between Columbus Day and Christopher Columbus is skewed by relating Columbus with the ideas of patriotism, and national pride. In reality the discovery of America was important, but Christopher Columbus himself should not be celebrated as a figure because of this. The main issues regarding the celebratory image of Christopher Columbus are the common misconceptions of him and his explorations. Firstly he didn’t even discover the Americas. The first written account of westward exploration and discovery was documented by...

Good Day vs Bad Day

...GS1145 Bendall Short Answer 5.1 Good Day vs Bad Day Breckinridge School of Nursing Barbara Walker Abstract Anyone working as a nursing assistant has chosen a very challenging path. Poor compensation, workplace politics, short staffing, conflict between coworkers, irate and difficult residents, miscommunication, heavy lifting and the loss of those for whom we care all make for a tough work environment. I definitely have locked myself in the linen closet to get myself together moments. So, why do I keep coming back? Why do I stay? First of all, I embrace the challenge. I thrive on it. In my life, it is a rare and beautiful thing to be able to bring order to chaos rather than the other way around. I work at Cardinal Hill Rehabilitation Hospital and I have to say, the patients inspire me every day. We have a variety of patients; with cerebral palsy, Parkinson’s disease, cancer, dementia, brain and spinal cord injuries and just knee or hip replacements that still laugh and love and find joy in nothing short of amazing. It’s such an incredible gift to be a part of their lives…to walk them through the tough days and celebrate with them during their triumphs. They have shown me the uselessness of the word impossible. They all touch my heart, and I hope I touch their heart too. Good Day vs Bad Day I have to say that I’m proud of the work that I do. Nursing assistants come in all shapes and sizes. We are both male and female. Our Physical appearances are different...

Learning Game Description…………………………………….…………………pg. 1 IV. Resources………………………………………………………………………….pg. 2 I. 80/20 Rule Concept: An Overview The 80/20 rule is a well-known, theory that can be broadly applied to many different situations and areas of study. It originates from an observation made by Vilfredo Pareto, an Italian economist who noted that eighty percent of the land in Italy belonged to only twenty percent of the people. The idea, also known as Pareto’s principle, preaches that in anything (situation, process, event, etc.) just a small percentage is truly important while the rest is of little significance. Furthermore, it is crucial to note that the exact proportions or numerical values associated to this ideology are irrelevant. In essence, the premise upon which the principle is based assumes most results or outcomes stem from very few causes. Simply, the majority or best results that can be produced are derived from specific efforts or actions. II. 80/20 Rule Concept: Importance and Implications in Business In the business world, a strategy chosen and implemented by an enterprise is especially important in successfully achieving the outlined goals. Furthermore, the strategy should be one that is built upon a sound understanding of......
