Sons of Guadalupe.

Don’t eat the bear Sometime before its eighteenth century settlement by Spanish priests and pobladores, California had been referred to as El Rincon del Mundo (the edge of the world). To the Spanish mind of the age it was truly out there at the edge of their known world. It was too far north from Mexico and the rest of Spain’s vast empire. Some thought it might be an island called California inhabited by women and ruled by a queen called Calafia. California’s name itself was the fruit of the imagination of a Spanish novelist, Garci Ordoñez de Montalvo. He envisioned this California as a place of unimaginable mystery and fantastic visions maybe even paradise itself. Guadalupe, like the southwest itself, has changed hands a number of times: first the Chumash Indians settled and inhabited the area, then the Spanish, then the Mexicans. The United States ultimately forced Mexico to surrender California and the present-day southwestern region through the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo. The vitality of the imagination, its revolving door of ethnicities, the resiliencies of the residents and its return to its essential Mexican roots have enhanced its fundamental quality across the years. Presumably the town takes its name from the patron saint of Mexico: La Virgen de Guadalupe, or from an 1843 (or 1840) Mexican land grant called Rancho de Guadalupe, originally deeded to the original Mexican residents, Teodoro Arrellanes and Diego Olivera. Arellanes and Olivera had acquired a massive 30,000-acre land grant from the Mexican government. Almost certainly their land grant was one of the more than 800 land grants given by the Mexican government in those days as part of its grand plan to secularize the missions and privatize its land holdings. Mexico hoped to populate the region, develop a diversified economy and protect it from European or…...

If you are born a girl your gender is female if you were born a boy your gender is male.

Memo for S-S Technologies

...Memo for S-S Technologies a) S-S Technologies’ organizational purpose is for manageable growth, focusing on products within the company’s scope and skills. b) Using the framework in CoCo’s guidance on control to evaluate S-S, in my view, the control system of S-S is not efficient in some area. Firstly, from the aspect of purpose, s-s has its objectives, but as we can know from the consultants’ interviews, few employees were aware of SST’s goals and strategies. SST also don’t have specific policies to support the achievement of its objectives, for instance, there was no policy regarding bonus or merit pay. Secondly, from the aspect of commitment, SST has high commitment and employees loved the work environment. However, as we can know from the consultants’ interviews, the responsibilities are not clear among the managers or workers. Some employee felt cheated because SST could not afford to pay bonus. Thirdly, the employees in SST do have necessary knowledge and skills and knew whom to contact for technical information. However, in terms of performance appraisal, it was not done at regular intervals, people also don’t know whom to contact about benefits and salary ranges. The decisions and actions of different parts of the SST are not coordinated. What’s more, it doesn’t have efficient monitoring processes. SST can’t reassess its related information systems as condition change. c) Example of market: in early 1990, the North American economy was in a......

Measuring G

...Acceleration of gravity, g Introduction In this experiment you will be measuring the acceleration of gravity using a pendulum like apparatus. The value of g is an important issue as it forms the basis for many mathematical theories and allows for life to exist on this planet. If we keep in contact with the Earth, ordinary tasks will be very difficult. Establishing due value for the acceleration of gravity allows to utilise many of theories that could allow us to solve the big problems. Everyday life would be difficult if we did not have gravity, we would be constant free fall and stopping us to function as a society. The concept of zero gravity can be seen on the International Space Station (ISS), however theoretically they should be not experiencing as they as still in the Earth's gravity field however as the constantly circling the Earth to stay above the surface this causes a state of free fall allowing for the zero gravity to occur in the ISS. You will be using this setup to calculate the acceleration due to gravity using pendulum motion. The investigation is designed to demonstrate: • Air friction • Pendulum motion • Acceleration due to gravity Historical Context: Gravity has been long-known concept, first conceived Isaac Newton with the famous moment of the apple dropping on his head. With that remarkable accident, he derived the law of universal gravitational attraction. F =G ( m1 m2 ) d 2 F = Attraction force between two objects (N) G = Universal......

Parle-G or Parle Glucose biscuits, manufactured by Parle Products Pvt Ltd, are one of the most popular biscuits in India. Parle-G is one of the oldest brand names as well as the largest selling brand of biscuits in India. For decades, the product was instantly recognized by its iconic white and yellow wax paper wrapper with the depiction of a young girl on the front. Counterfeit companies have attempted to recreate and sell lower quality products of similar names with virtually identical package design. The company's slogan is G means Genius. The name, "Parle-G", is derived from the name of the suburban rail station, Vile Parle which in turn is based on village Parle in olden days (there is also area called Irle nearby where the Parle Agro production factory is based). The factory in Mumbai was the first to be set up, followed soon by the one in Bangalore, Karnataka.
