...“The difficulty in life is the choice”, 1 100% agree with this quote George Moore indeed would have gotten a vote from me when it came to come true this actually is. To explain his quote in other words; he’s stating the hardships and difficultly in life can most likely be avoided , you step into it and enhance it more that’s where the difficulty comes in which in some many ways could have probably be avoided . The book “Twelve Angry Men” by Reginald Roses is definitely a prime example of chosen difficulty when in many ways it could have been avoided. The teenager in the book “Twelve Angry Men” was on trial for the manslaughter of his own father. In my opinion that teen was all the way guilty. But majority of the 12 jurors saw him as innocent. Some pledged his innocence by justifying the manslaughter by saying he was “ a product of his environment” , claiming the boy grew up in the slums , had it bad all his life , from the robbing’s to the car theft even the stabbing his was involved in with another teen. But let’s be real it wasn’t mandatory for this teen to do those things. In all reality that young boy did those wrong doing himself all by his lonesome. Of course probably his environment gave him ideas and the thoughts in his head, but let’s thinks did the environment put the knife in his hand and forced him to kill his father? No right, so why the environment is the one to blame when it came to this boy reasons for killing his own father? No one lead him down the path of...

...Acupuncture Acupuncture originates from China and has been practiced there for thousands of years. Although there are records of acupuncture being used hundreds of years ago in Europe, it was during the second half of the twentieth century. Acupuncture started to spread rapidly in Western Europe, United States, and Canada. It does have some therapeutic benefits, including pain relief and alleviation from nausea caused by chemotherapy. You don't need Chinese philosophy either to make it work, or to practice it. The Chinese have developed complex theories and philosophies of acupuncture that form the foundation of their traditional medical system. Without argument, they were the most influential in developing this unique form of medicine into what it is today. Acupuncture works in many different ways on a human body. Acupuncture involves the insertion of very thin needles through the patient’s skin at specific points on the body the needles are inserted to various depths. Acupuncture points are seen by Western practitioners as places where nerves, muscles and connective tissue can be stimulated. Acupuncture practitioners say that the stimulation increases blood flow while at the same time triggering the activity of our own body's natural painkillers. Through 350 acupuncture points in the body, these meridians and energy flows may be accessed. Illness is said to be the consequence of an imbalance of the forces. If needles are inserted into these points with appropriate......

...Assignment 1: Computer Architecture Mardez Terrell Davis CIS- 106 May 5, 2013 Strayer University Arnold Daus Assignment 1: Computer Architecture In the 1940’s computer architecture developed by John Von Neumann and others that allows for input, output, processing, and memory; it also includes the stored program concept. The name Von Neumann machine is named after John Von Neumann. He is also a mathematician who was critical to its success. Von Neumann machine operates on fetch-execute cycle. That means the CPU (Central Processing Unit) fetches an instruction from memory and then executes this instruction. In the process of the CPU you have your input device go to the control unit. Then once the input device is in the control unit it send codes to the Arithmetic Logic Unit known as ALU. The portion of the CPU is responsible for mathematical operations, specifically addition. The next part is when the ALU is sending zeros and ones to a small unit of very high speed of memory o the CPU, used to store data and instructions for the CPU known as the register. In the registers it send everything that is on the computer to the main memory. The two, registers and the main memory is a cycle because they send each other data back and forwards. Now the last part is the output known as the auxiliary storage device like USB, earphones, printers, monitors, mouse and HDMI cord. Von Neumann architecture is important because in the input device you have the keyboard and it sends......

...Debartolo Expository Writing EN109-60 September 26, 2012 I’m Just Me Everyone has a history of where they come from and the variety of things they do within their culture. In my perspective peoples culture is what makes them a whole. I’m Dominican. My life consists of excitement and happiness. From the delicious foods, to the jumping music. My world revolves around my culture. I and my family have different occasions which we celebrate differently. In our world we tend to make everyone happy. Even though I wasn’t born in Dominican Republic I still carry it within me. My mother, father, brothers and sister were born in Dominican Republic. I was the only one that was born in the United States but I was actually made in Dominican Republic. We were all raised Dominican style as anyone would say. We speak, write and read fluent Spanish. We also have the accent which is recognized by any Dominican. It wasn’t as difficult as I thought adjusting to the variety of things that are totally different in DR. Like every 3 years we would go to Dominican Republic. I can truly say that it is completely different as time goes by. And I realized the difference. In the DR you would see the children on the streets playing baseball, hopscotch, playing with dolls, riding bicycles and everything you would see a typical child do. Here in the United States it would be very difficult for you to see the children playing outdoors. Just for the simple fact that technology is very advance......

...this part is to convert the AC voltage to a DC one. We have two methods for rectification: A] Half wave-rectification: the output voltage appears only during positive cycles of the input signal. B] Full wave –rectification: a rectified output voltage occurs during both the positive and negative cycles of the input signal. The Filter: used to eliminate the fluctuations in the output of the full wave rectifier “eliminate the noise” so that a constant DC voltage is produced. This filter is just a large capacitor used to minimize the ripple in the output. Regulator: this is used to provide a desired DC-voltage. Figure 2 shows the general parts of the power supply. Figure 2 Parts of the power supply. In our project we need 12, -12, 5 and 3.5 volts. We found that the PC power supply can provide all the voltages that we need in the jammer, so we bought one. 9 4.2.2 The IF-section The tuning section of the jammer sweeps the VCO through the desired range of frequencies. Basically, it is just a triangle or sawtooth-wave generator; offset at a proper amount so as to sweep the VCO from the minimum desired frequency to a maximum. The tuning signal is generated by a triangular wave mixed with noise. The IF section consists of three main parts: 1. Triangle wave generator. (To tune the VCO in the RF section) 2. Noise generator (provides the output noise). 3. Mixer” summer” (to mix the triangle and the noise waves). Triangle wave generator: The main use of the triangle wave......

...Hace algunos meses me despedí de ese primer amor, que le quitó la inocencia a mi corazón, rompiéndolo en pedazos. Porque volví a enamorarme, a verme la cara de tonta. Le dije adiós a las penas, a los malos recuerdos, a mi interés por su última conexión en WhatsApp y dejar de leerle sus tuits. Y dicen que en el mundo moderno esos son los síntomas de haber superado la tusa. No se equivocaron, porque poco a poco mi corazón sentía que alguien, sin permiso, pero sin problema alguno de que lo hiciera, se metiera de a detalles, de a besos y palabras bonitas. Y me enamore, sin tilde, para que no se lea tan pasado. Abriéndome a una nueva esperanza de una vida juntos. Porque me gustan los amores bonitos, los que nos ilusionan con ser eternos.   No cabía la dicha, porque siempre he dicho que no hay felicidad que nos alegre tanto, como la de un nuevo amor. Le di la bienvenida a las nuevas citas, al ahorro para ser detallista y a los besos tímidos en el cine. Y termine de despedirme de ese primer amor, sin ganas de volverlo a ver, cuando en sus labios hubo una promesa de amor. Amor bonito, diferente y único. No me bajo la luna, pero me subió al cielo sin avisar. Porque eso es lo lindo del amor, que no avisa. Pasaron los meses, sintiendo que no había amado nunca. Y aunque ya había expresado cosas comunes, como “jamás me había sentido así”, esta vez lo sentía más sincero, más de adentro del corazón. Fue un amor perfecto, como lo son todos cuando se está enamorado. Pero este amor era......

October Crisis "Just Watch Me"

..."Just watch me" is a phrase made famous by Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau on October 13, 1970, during the October Crisis. Pierre Trudeau, who had in previous years been a strong advocate of civil liberties, spoke of the need for drastic action to restore order in Quebec. When questioned by CBC reporter Tim Ralfe on how far he would go in the suspension of civil liberties to maintain order, Trudeau replied, "Well, just watch me." The reporter was trying to get Trudeau to explain why he would make Quebec into a military state. What good would it do? The reporter had his own idea about it and it was clear that he was making an effort to not be a “devil’s advocate” as Trudeau said to him at the very end of the video, (7:24) however, to try and make this situation debatable. The reporter is afraid that as a province they would lose their rights and freedom. He questions Trudeau, “Doesn’t it worry you that you have a town that has to resort to this kind of thing?” (0:31) It is clear that the reporter shows his worry and frustration by asking and doubting Trudeau’s in acting of the War Measures Act. The reporter expresses that he wants a more of a safer province by starting more of a heavier debate rather than an interview. Pierre Trudeau’s overall point to this interview is to show that he means business. Trudeau's firm conviction that "law and order in Canada" come first, and that there would be no bargaining with the kidnappers, won him new popularity in English......

Me, Me Me

...In January 2008 a British journalist, Sarfraz Manzoor, wrote an article with the title “Me, Me, Me” that appeared in the magazine “Esquire”. He gives his opinion on how the phenomenon “New Narcissism” has its influences on today’s society through the Internet. And he leaves us with the impression that there is a reason to be worried about today's youth being more narcissistic than ever before. Narcissism is not new for us. New Narcissism is a modern version of the phenomenon narcissism. And it has been known since ancient Greece with the Greek myth about Narcissus that fell in love with his own reflection in the water. The man that got narcissism recognized as a medical condition was Sigmund Freud (l. 53). But in our age, the word, narcissism, does not seem that serious and is mostly defined as a phenomenon. This New Narcissism has come to life because society reproduces itself (l. 59). And growing numbers of people are more narcissistic according to a study performed by psychologists. Sarfraz Manzoor, who has written this article, describes that New Narcissism is the offspring of today’s society. He makes an example by including a person named Chris Crocker. Crocker became famous because he put a video on the Internet where he defended the celebrity Britney Spears. There can be two reasons for his behaviour. Is he doing this to tell people that they shall back off and because he is fond of her? Or is he doing this to get attention? But it does not seem as if Britney is......
