requirements of the design brief.

For my year 12 electronics major assignment I was set the task to design and make a low voltage regulator, the constraints of the task was that it needed to fit into a commercial manufactured housing that is 120mm x 65mm x 40 mm, Soldering must be used , Soldering iron will be used, Must work reliably and must be to a High quality soldering standard. I felt I had completed all these task to a high standard and had meet all the requirements needed of that of the design brief.

I was set out to achieve a working low volatge regulator that would notify the vehicle driver if the battery is discharging and becoming flat. I felt that I have completed the requirements to a high standard. The evidence that I have to support my claims are that I had taken pictures regularly and also when testing the regulator the lights would turn on once the multimeter read 12 volts.

The final product didnt come easy as I had some trouble when making the low voltage regulator when I first tried to test my regulator to see if it worked none of the lights were going on, this led to do some fault finding task to see where the problem is and try to fix it. Once I had found the problem it was an easy fix and when I tired testing it again it worked perfectly. If I were to make this low voltage regulator differently I would take more time tinning the solder on the PCB board making it smooth and shinny and take more care bending the components legs for a better fit. I would also put the lights higher up so that they come through the top of the commercial manufacture housing lid. I would also chance the spot where I put the switches to a more appropriate spot because I had them to low on my project.

The skills used were soldering and making sure you werent putting to much solder on, and make it smooth. If i could make some recoomendations they would be…...

The Woods

...English 101 October 1, 2012 The Woods The tops of the trees were visible from my childhood home, yet they seemed so far away. A trio of neighborhood pre-teen boys, including me, would frequently make the trek to the woods to quench our thirst for adventure. No matter our agenda for the day, the woods would always accommodate. We would start our journey by walking across a perpetually soggy horse pasture, dodging land mines left by the horses. The smells of fresh cut hay and horse manure followed in our wake. Our first stop in the woods was always the stream that ran the entire length. With a running start, a young boy could almost jump the width of the stream, landing a few feet short on the opposite bank. We would descend the bank and hop from rock to rock, trying to keep our tennis shoes dry. When that failed, we trod down the center of the stream, lifting up flat rocks to uncover unsuspecting crayfish. We did not know that people actually ate these peculiar looking creatures. In the winter, we would compete to see who could stand on the ice of the frozen stream the longest. The stream would always win, as the ice gave way with a resounding crack. We walked home with heavy feet, dragging rock-hard pant legs frozen up to the knees. Older kids rode their motorcycles in the woods and adjacent field, as the high-pitched engine whine and smells of two cycle oil mixed with gasoline filled the air. Eventually, my neighborhood trio had motorcycles of our own, and our......

Bretton Wood System

...Bretton Woods System and world trade in post-war period Introduction This reading report is based on two technical papers( The Bretton Woods international monetary system: An historical overview by Michael D. Bordo 148 pages & The post-war rise of world trade: Does the Bretton Woods System deserve credit? By Andrew G. Terborgh 74 pages)on Bretton Wood System as well as the post war international trade system since the U.S has become the most powerful economy after World War II, that US dollar was at that time the dominant currency internationally speaking. The first paper is titled of “The Bretton Woods International Monetary System: An historical overview” by professor Michael D. Bordo who is an economic professor and Director of the center for Monetary and Financial History at Rutger University. His paper has a brief overview of Bretton Woods experience. From its emergence and how it evolved that influence the monetary convertibility and gold dollar standard, until its collapse due to the U.S depression in 1970s. I considered this article to be a very technical one that gives many details on Bretton Wood System in history, but the very interesting part could also be that the author has given the ideas that why Bretton Woods was very stable but lived so short. Meanwhile, the second paper I chose to read is “The Post-War Rise of World Trade: Does the Bretton Wood System Deserve Credit?” . This one is more of an analyzing paper written by Andrew G.

Personal Work Group Evaluation

...U04a1 Personal Work Group Evaluation The only group that I have dealt with recently is a softball team. There are about 10 women and it is a woman’s league. The team was added to the league about two years ago. In the group suggestions have been made about the attendance of some of the players which are affecting the team. We encourage each other to be leaders and followers when it comes to the team decisions. In the group the formal roles are based on the position of the team member. For example, my position would be catcher or outfielder, my role is to not let anyone score at home plate and in the outfield I have to make sure I catch the ball to get the person out. We all communicate when one is going to catch the ball in order to avoid a collision or a mistake to occur. The coach is the one that puts everything together as far as who plays what position and what to do and not do. He has a team but doesn’t put the effort a coach should in order to make the team successful. There is no practice to sharpen ones skills and therefore the woman who have very little experience playing have a hard time on the field. The only communication is on the field and via mobile device to let one know if the game is on or forfeited. The team wants to be successful but when they observe that the coach really doesn’t care they also give up. In this group the norm is as expected with many other groups. Everyone gets along and respects others. On the field everyone......

A Death in the Woods

...A Death in the Woods - Sherwood Anderson She was an old woman and lived on a farm near the town in which I lived. All country and small-town people have seen such old women, but no one knows much about them. Such an old woman comes into town driving an old worn-out horse or she comes afoot carrying a basket. She may own a few hens and have eggs to sell. She brings them in a basket and takes them to a grocer. There she trades them in. She gets some salt pork and some beans. Then she gets a pound or two of sugar and some flour. Afterwards she goes to the butcher's and asks for some dog-meat. She may spend ten or fifteen cents, but when she does she asks for something. Formerly the butchers gave liver to any one who wanted to carry it away. In our family we were always having it. Once one of my brothers got a whole cow's liver at the slaughter-house near the fairgrounds in our town. We had it until we were sick of it. It never cost a cent. I have hated the thought of it ever since. The old farm woman got some liver and a soup-bone. She never visited with any one, and as soon as she got what she wanted she lit out for home. It made quite a load for such an old body. No one gave her a lift. People drive right down a road and never notice an old woman like that. There was such an old woman who used to come into town past our house one Summer and Fall when I was a young boy and was sick with what was called inflammatory rheumatism. She went home later carrying a heavy pack on......

Into the Woods

...I enjoyed the Into the Woods broadway musical. It meshed together many of my childhood fairy tales and stories, creating an unique plot for the musical. The main theme that stood out, in my opinion, was greed. The musical shed light on how many people have selfish tactics and will do anything in their power to get what they want. Jack wanted gold, the married couple wanted a baby, and Cinderella's husband wanted a beautiful woman. Each person did what could to get what they wanted, and everything seemed fine. Just like in reality, everything that glitters isn't gold. Once each person had what they wanted, things started to backfire on them because of the way they recieved these different wishes. Everybody still wanted more than what they had, or at least wanted to add to what they already had attained. The musical also showed how easy it was to lose things, once you have taken them for granted. Jack's mother died, the wife of the married husband died as well. If I had to create an alternate ending, I don't think I would have had anyone die. I did appreciate how the musical was shedding light onto great values and life lessons, but I would have altered death being involved. When I think of my favorite fairy tales, they all ended with happy endings. I wanted the musical to end that way, maybe the people could have been punished for their wrong doings. I would have maybe had everyone lose their prized possesion, but not their family member or spouse. It is still supposed to be a...

...The Bretton Woods system is commonly understood to refer to the international monetary regime that prevailed from the end of World War II until the early 1970s. Taking its name from the site of the 1944 conference that created the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and World Bank (International Bank for Reconstruction and Development), the Bretton Woods system was history's first example of a fully negotiated monetary order intended to govern currency relations among sovereign states. In principle, the regime was designed to combine binding legal obligations with multilateral decision-making conducted through an international organization, the IMF, endowed with limited supranational authority. In practice the initial scheme, as well as its subsequent development and ultimate demise, were directly dependent on the preferences and policies of its most powerful member, the United States. The World Bank and its sister organization, the International Monetary Fund, were created at Bretton Woods New Hampshire in 1944. Together they are referred to as the Bretton Woods Institutions or BWIs. The IMF's original mandate sets forth three main objectives: 1. To promote international monetary cooperation; 2. To facilitate the expansion of international trade; 3. To promote exchange rate stability. The IMF achieves these objectives by advising member countries on their economic policies and by providing conditional assistance to member countries experiencing balance of......

Austin Wood Products

...the production department of Austin Wood Products (AWP). AWP is a manufacturing company that puts prime in its specialization on custom-made doors. Starting as an in-house business, the AWP has grown into a 90, 000-square meter company that can no longer run with the accustomed practices. Currently, AWP is experiencing complications with its inventory system that is hampering the ideal, optimal performance of the company. II. Summary of Findings A. Methodology The case was analyzed thoroughly by the researchers. It was clearly stated in the case that the main problem of the company is its lack of a formal inventory system. The sales of the company and the continuous demand of the customers for their products is going well. It’s just that the workers of the company are having a hard time monitoring the inventory of raw materials and finished goods in the warehouse. This also affects the productivity of workers in the company because it takes at least two days in counting the inventory of the company. The important variables involved in the case are Dave Pope and the employees. They are the ones critically related in resolving the issue of the inventory system of the company. These variables are all equally affected in choosing the best alternative and implementing it. As a plant manager, Dave Pope will seek to improve the company’s current situation and on the other hand, the employees should eliminate interference in productivity at work. The objectives and goals of......

...Wood model rough estimates 2x2x3 ft Outer walls (2) 2'x2' = 8 sq ft; two 24”x 24” pieces (2) 3'x2' = 12 sq ft, two 36” x 24” pieces For siding, we can use 1/4”, 3/8”, 1/2”, 3/4”inch Baltic birch plywood. Minimum should be 3/8” for structural integrity. Plywood is sold in 24” x 48” sheets, so ideally we would have to buy 3 sheets for the outer walls. Framing Plywood starts to chip/splinter when cut in small pieces, so it is preferable to use hardwood in the framing. Framing consists of four rectangles with supporting vertical braces. Also, the edges of plywood aren't really aesthetically pleasing. Given the size of the model, the beams and studs should be at least 1/2” inch thick. If we were to choose 3/4” inch stock, the width of each beam can be 1 – 1 ¼ inches (as to scale with real life lumber sizes) Assuming 1 inch width per piece and 3/4” stock: 1” x 36”; Lengthwise beams 1” x 22 1/2”; Vertical beams Assuming that there is a 4 inch gap between each support stud: Rough calculations, will refine when making designs Estimated 6 studs for front wall at 22 1/2” length 1” x 22 1/2” Side wall studs: (4) 1” x 22” lengthwise beams (6 or 8) 1” x 22.5” studs (approx 3 studs per side wall) Total ~(1) 36” x 24” sheet 4” x 36” piece Problem: hardwood isn't sold in 24 x 36 sheets, need to visit store to see actual dimensions Base flooring: (1) 24” x 36” sheet of plywood...

Wood Technology

...Wood technology is the knowledge of the structure, properties, and processing characteristics of wood and the application of this knowledge to industrial processes; including the utilization of wood and the design, production, manufacture, or reconstruction of wood products. The responsibilities of the wood technologist are varied, but generally fall into the broad categories of technical control, production, distribution or research. Technical control may include selection and procurement of raw material, equipment, and supplies, quality control of products, technical supervision of processes, and product development. Production involves supervision of processes, departments or plants and thus requires, in addition to technological knowledge, a grasp of administrative and industrial engineering skills. Distribution may be of materials, supplies, and equipment to the wood-using industry or of the products manufactured. Research, in addition to wood conversion activities, wood technologists also fill research roles to develop the knowledge on which technological advances in the wood industry are based. A wood technology education must provide a basis from which specialization in any of the above areas may develop through either work experience or additional formal education. As with engineering, professional courses in wood technology are built on a strong background in mathematics and physical sciences. Although some knowledge of biology is necessary, most types of wood......

Some people think that “Into the Woods” is like a Disney story but eventually it’s not , while it appears that Disney does have a monopoly over characters like Cinderella and Rapunzel, the story was not born out of the mouse House, but the studio is producing it. “Into the Woods” is based on the idea of “Once upon a time”, but no actual Disney characters. These are completely different characters, all coming from Stephen Sondheim’s 1986 musical of the same name. Stephen Sondheim American composer Stephen Sondheim was born on March 22, 1930, in New York City. After early practice at songwriting, his knowledge of musical theater was influenced by master lyricist Oscar Hammerstein II, who served as a mentor. Sondheim's contributions to West Side Story and Gypsy in the 1950s brought him recognition as a rising star of Broadway. Known for the startling complexity of his lyricism and music, his major works for the theater also include A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, Sweeney Todd, Sunday in the Park With George and Into the Woods.

Touch Wood

...Touch Wood Touch Wood is based on the author¹s own life when she was growing as a Jewish girl during the German invasion of France. In 1940, Renée and her family were living in Alsace, France, where nothing ever changed. No one expected anything unusual to happen. Then one day, a war with Germany is announced on the radio. The Germans wanted to annex Alsace and forced the Jews to leave. France was split into two zones- the Free Zone and the German occupied zone. Renée¹s father chose for them to move to Paris, because it is a big city where he can find work, and also because Renée¹s mother has childhood friends there. So, Renée, her parents, her two younger sisters, and their blind grandmother move into a crowded apartment in the German-occupied zone. Renée was disappointed in Paris when she arrived. She finds that everything seems to be smaller in Paris. Eventually, her new neighborhood becomes more of a home and helps Renée to miss Alsace a little less. Renée¹s parents had left Poland and then Hungary to find a freer, better life. They settled in France and thought they¹d be safe. Then Adolf Hitler, a German man who hated Jewish people, started trouble all over again. First, seven synagogues were blown up. Then, the Germans created a curfew prohibiting Jews to go during certain hours. Any Jew caught in the street after curfew would be taken as hostage. Also, all Jewish people must wear a Star of David on their shirts. An ordinance is created requiring all......
