Into the Sky

...Bobby Bolin 9/19/12 Into The Sky For thousands of years, we have gazed into the sky in quandary about cosmic phenomena. Cavemen, peasants, kings and astronomers could do nothing more but hypothesize the mysteries of outer space and the universe. It was not until the 17th century did astronomers create the telescope to see more than just the naked eye however, the Mesopotamians recorded constellations that still exist in modern day age today. Our desires to find extraterrestrial life and answer cosmic phenomena will ascent our technology beyond belief in many years to come. Decades ago, astronomers believed that our solar system was the only one that existed though there was still a dire explanation sought of the galaxies: are there any other habitable planets out there? What was the history and chemistry of our planets thousands of years ago? These questions inspire our most ambitious endeavors of space and Mars exploration and moon landings. With Mars being a planet with extreme similarities such as: mountains, canyons, rocks, dry river valleys, polar ice caps and water in the clouds. If we could understand the geological history of Mars, it would be a step closer that grants limitless technology and opportunity. The Kepler mission is another huge endeavor for which we are now able to detect other planet that orbit other stars; in essence, we have found other solar systems other than our own that habitable. This, just like other discoveries, is leading us one step closer...

Limits

...Find the limit 2) Lim┬(x→2)⁡〖(x^3-8)/(x^2-4)〗 First you use synthetic division to find the two factors of the equation. You will divide by the number 2 because that’s the number x approaches. You have to get the coefficients of each term including x^2 and x even though they aren’t part of the equation. Once you write it out it should look like 2 1 0 0 -8. You bring down the first term and multiply it by 2, the result you will then add to 0. After that you multiply the result of 0+2 to the 2 you rare dividing by. The result you add it to the other 0. The result of 0+4 you once again multiply by the 2 you are dividing by and you end up with 8. The last terms cancel because you add a negative and positive 8. By the end you are left with 1 2 4 0. That is one of the factors but you have to start the factor with one degree less than the original equation. It will be (x^2+2x+4). The other factor will be like your limit except the number will be the opposite (x-2). Once you factor out the denominator from the original equation, you get (x+2) and (x-2) because x^2-4 is a difference of squares. Both (x-2) from the numerator and denominator cancel each other out. After you just plug in the 2 for your x’s and at the end you simplify and get an answer of 3....

Paparazzi Limits

...Jones told that she was once scared by photographer who jumped out of the night time to get a shot of her. Another time , she crashed her car into a lamp post as the result of trying to escape from a paparazzi. Now there is a new breed of photographers, know as the paparazzi, that are hated by most movie stars and other famous people alike. Media problem: Privacy, human rights and ethic As we see from some of celebrities cases who are a victim of the hunter I the name of paparazzi. I think it is a good opportunity to examine the ethical and moral consciousness for the role of the mass communication operation. There are many reproach against paparazzi of their behavior ravaging into the society. Someone propose to issue a law to prevent and limit the terrible danger that may happen when the paparazzi follow the celebrities. It is not wrong for photographers to take pictures of the famous people, but it is wrong to take pictures without their permission. The lack of privacy and human right realization of media may cause the paparazzi problem. Privacy is an ambiguous concept that is not easy to define. “One common view is that the right to have privacy means the right to be left alone or control unwanted publicity about one personal affairs. In contrast, the media are in the business of not leaving people alone. Their duties are in the direction of revelation, not concealment”. (**) Thus, the balance of the individual’s interest in privacy is against the interest of the......

Speed Limit

...Do you think the current highway speed limit in Canada is appropriate? How would decide whether or not it should be increased or decreased? Considering Canada has nearly 900,000 kilometers of road, I am a little surprised the topic of speed limit optimization hasn’t been more of a hot topic for government agencies. Canada has a maximum speed limit of 100km/hour on multi-lane highways. For two lane highways, the speed limit remains the same at 100km/hour. In urban areas the speed limit drops to 60km/hour on major roads, and down a further 10 km/hour for a speed limit of 50km/hour in residential areas. As is typical in any country around the world, the speed limit in school and playground areas is reduced further (AngloInfoCanada.Com). If the speed limit were raised, the marginal benefits would be: 1. Reduced travel times 2. Congestion relief 3. Higher productivity of transportation of goods The marginal costs associated with a speed limit increase would be: 1. The cost of more patrol vehicles and police presence 2. Lost revenue from assigned speeding tickets 3. The cost of increased fuel consumption When looking at the marginal benefits, there can be assumptions made on increased productivity, reduced travel times and congestion relief, however there are no real numbers or evidence to support these statements as they are natural assumptions. The current infrastructure in Canada accommodates the number of vehicles on the road, yet there is frustration with congestion...

A Gap of Sky

...A Gap of sky This essay, written by Anna Hope, is about a girl, who wakes up after a long night of partying with drugs and alcohol. The girl in the story is named Ellie. She is in a big hurry because she has to hand in an assignment at nine a clock. She doesn't have any printer ink left, so she starts trying to find some stores that are still open. After a long time of searching to find a store that is sells printer ink, she finally find a store which is not closed. She buys the ink and walks home to write the essay. There is only one character in this story. Her name is Ellie and she is presented as a girl who likes to party. She is already shown this way in the start of the story, where she is waking up from a wild party the day before. "Cans, some cans of lager, and them more coke arriving and - K, didn't they do some K?" This quote shows the reader, what type of girl Ellie is. There are no doubt that she loves to party, and maybe too much. I would also like to highlight an another quote "Will they really kick her off the course? Or will she have to repeat the year?" This quote indicated, that she has been taking drug and drinking a lot for a longtime now. She has probably recieved a lot of warnings from her school, so it isn't the first time that she is in this bad position. I believe that the author would like us to feel a little bad for her actually. Because she is all by herself, she doesn't have any parents to make limits for her anymore. "Her mother......

Eath and Sky

...Between the Earth and the Sky: Viewing from Islamic Perspective The term earth had been mentioned in al-Quran for many times, in which all of them indicates that surface of includes all visible things on the surface such as land and soil, mountains, plants, trees, forests and others. Earth also defined as place which can provide the best place for human to lives on, which they can cultivate on plants and crops, create buildings and anything within limit (Neurdeng, 2010). And it is He who spread out the earth, and set thereon mountains standing firm and (flowing) rivers: and fruit of every kind He made in pairs, two and two: He draweth the night as a veil o'er the Day. Behold, verily in these things there are signs for those who consider! (Surah Ar-Rad 13:3) "He Who has, made for you the earth like a carpet spread out; has enabled you to go about therein by roads (and channels); and has sent down water from the sky." With it have We produced diverse pairs of plants each separate from the others. (Surah Taha 20:13) It is Allah Who has made for you the earth as a resting place, and the sky as a canopy, and has given you shape- and made your shapes beautiful,- and has provided for you Sustenance, of things pure and good;- such is Allah your Lord. So Glory to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds! (Surah Ghafir 40:64) Earth is basically made up of components of land, water and wind.

Limits to Arbitrage

...Limits to Arbitrage: Saint Leo University- Chesapeake, Virginia Corporate Finance: MBA 570 Professor Smith April 23, 2014 Abstract Arbitrage is the idea of buying asset which involves no negative cash flow and making a profit with little or no risk. Understanding arbitrage opportunities is not the only ingredient needed to make sharp predictions. The level of irrationality need to be specified by behavior finance researchers. This is related to how they deviate from the Subjective Expected Utility theory. In order to specify the type of irrationality, researchers have turned to experimental evidence complied by cognitive psychologists on the biases that arise when people form beliefs, and on the people’s preferences, given their beliefs or on how they make decisions, Thaler and Barberis (2002). In this paper, we will concentrate on the extensive literature on the Limits to Arbitrage and explain how the theory was conceived, how it evolved over time and apply a scenario to better explain the research.

A Gap of Sky

...A Gap of Sky By Anna Hope One of the first things you put in mind, is the drug K. There are a lot different drugs on the market such as, marihuana, heroin and Coke. All of them can be equally dangerous; it all depends on the dose you take. But not only is drug dangerous, they also have an effect on the individual human being. If people starts talking about drugs, we do not react immediately, because nowadays it has reached to a lot young people, and we hear more and more about drugs. Even though drugs are, but are not supposed to be, a part of the underground environment, it always manages to reach the surface, and maybe wind up with some innocent people who actually don’t want anything to do with it. Some might get pressured to do it, others who’s at club and dancing, might get something in their drinks if they leave them unseen. And in the end we got those types of persons who do drugs, because they love it, or having a hard time getting out of it. In this short story by Anna hope, we meet a poor girl named Ellie. The reason for she is poor is because of the fact that she lacks control of her life. Ellie is nineteen years old and she lives in London, in fact she lives on her own, and she is taking a course on University College London. But these facts don’t make a nineteen years old girl poor. The reason is that Ellie is a victim of the dangerous environment of drugs. The story spans an hour and eleven minutes, from 16:29 till 17:40, a Monday afternoon. As......

Blue Sky

...Final Blue Sky Management and Leadership Question 1 In the past, Blue Sky leadership led from an autocratic leadership style. An autocratic leadership is similar to a dictatorship where only one person has the authority over the followers or workers. The autocratic leader decisions are to be taken as the final authority and should never be questioned. This leader plans out all of the companies agenda and demands that subordinates work according to their rules. The former CEO but still remained the Board Chairman, Max Blue, believed that meeting was not necessary therefore planning was considered a wasted of time. None of his employees seem to question his authority. This leadership style led to very passive employees at Blue Sky because they were unable to make decision caused them to lack passion about their jobs. Although the past CEO leadership style was autocratic, there were several different leadership styles among the various departments. The structure of the organization was divided in to the CEO, VP of the division, director of marketing, CFO, and the regional directors, who were consider upper management level. With the regional directors being younger and being with the Blue Sky for relatively a short period of time, they were more aggressive wanting to expand different product lines and clientele. However, the younger regional directors were presented with many challenges from the older managers that were mainly in vice presidents roles. These managers......

A Gap of Sky

...A Gap of Sky “A Gap of Sky” by Anna Hope is a short story about a young girl named Ellie who is constantly on drugs. She is a student in London, and from the story we can tell that she is tired of education and lacking freedom so she goes against this by doing drugs. The story describes how someone can lose control of themselves when they are alone in a city, with no one to turn to for support. The story is told by a third person narrator, but the way that the story is written makes it seem like Ellie, the main character, is telling the story. The writer shows Ellie’s thoughts very clearly through the narrator using very casual language and different sentence structures to get inside Ellie’s head and describing everything in a way that shows she is very distracted. It is like a running view of what is inside her head and helps us understand that she is on drugs. We are almost reading her thoughts and are witnessing her search for freedom, a theme in the story. The type of writing used in this story may seem like it is messy and unfocused, but it is actually very effective in showing the reader what it is like in Ellie’s head as her thoughts and actions are blended together and told by the narrator - “She’s going to have to work through the night, but it’s fine.” Here, we see her thoughts about having to work on an essay. She is also extremely distracted and constantly changes her mind and thoughts. After thinking it would be “fine” to work on the essay, she thinks back......

Zero Limits

...While Freud himself never mentioned this psychological term himself in his article, it is very obvious that it has correlation and can be applied to the feeling of an uncanny situation. With a solid understanding of the word “uncanny” in mind, the previously stated quote, “Fiction presents more opportunities for creating uncanny sensations than are possible in real life,” begins to make more sense (Freud, 18). Freud describes literature as “a much more fertile province than the uncanny in real life” (18). In non-fiction work, fear and uncanniness has limits that are set by the parameter of reality. In fiction however, the uncanny can go as far as it wants. In Freud’s opinion, he believes that the realm of imagination in fiction can be so deep that an author can create a more wild and uncanny idea than one that would actually exist in reality. In fictitious literature, there is nothing to stop the mind of the author; there are zero limits. He can create scenarios so uncanny that they cannot be real. In his article, Freud states that the author “can increase his effect and multiply it far beyond what could happen in reality, by bringing about events which never or very rarely happen in fact” (18). Freud’s stance on this issue seems to make a lot of sense and there are several places in the article that support the argument. On pages 5-7 of his essay, Freud tells the story of the “Sand-Man,” a creepy character who throws sand into children’s eyes, causing them to fall out.......

A Gap of Sky

...Essay - A Gap of Sky Everyone knows the feeling of realizing when we take things for granted. It does not matter whether it is persons, pleasures or love because it hurts a bit inside anyway. You wonder if it is too late to make it up, but it should never be too late. Ellie becomes aware of her problem and at last, she knows that she has done a good thing and the right thing to do as well. Ellie is a wild teenager who wants to live life a little extreme. By the word extreme is meant that she party much, does not care much for school and she uses coke. Ellie develops throughout the story from being a nineteen-year-old drug abuser, who wanders around in her own small world in which it is all about drugs and she does not see the world or the people around her.
