Isle Royale
Introduction
The Wolves and Moose of Isle Royale
If you were to travel on Route 61 to the farthest reaches of Minnesota and stand on the shore of Lake Superior looking east, on a clear day you would see Isle Royale. This remote, forested island sits isolated and uninhabited 15 miles off of the northern shore of Lake Superior, just south of the border between Canada and the USA. If you had been standing in a similar spot by the lake in the early 1900s, you may have witnessed a small group of hardy, pioneering moose swimming from the mainland across open water, eventually landing on the island. These fortunate moose arrived to find a veritable paradise, devoid of predators and full of grass, shrubs, and trees to eat. Over the next 30 years, the moose population exploded, reaching several thousand individuals at its peak. The moose paradise didn’t last for long, however. Lake Superior rarely freezes. In the 1940s, however, conditions were cold and calm enough for an ice bridge to form between the mainland and Isle Royale. A small pack of wolves found the bridge and made the long trek across it to…...

...O que é feito do “THE SIMS”? The Sims O The Sims é um jogo eletrónico de simulação da vida real, desenvolvido inicialmente pela Maxis e mais tarde pela The Sims Studio, e editado pela Electronic Arts, sendo um dos videojogos melhor sucedidos de sempre. Foram até hoje vendidas 125 milhões de cópias. Neste jogo, em vez de ter um objetivo definido, o jogador é incentivado a tomar as suas próprias opções livremente, num ambiente interativo. O jogador cria uma ou várias pessoas virtuais denominadas “Sims” e coloca-as em casas pré-construídas ou arquitetadas por si, ajudando-os a tomar as suas decisões do dia-a-dia e a evoluir, quer em termos pessoais, quer em termos profissionais, fazendo-os ganhar pontos e dinheiro. Não é possível “vencer” o jogo. As atividades a serem realizadas pelos “Sims” são extremamente simples e práticas, tais como, comer, descansar, tomar banho, conversar, estudar, namorar, ir às compras, entre inúmeras outras. A inteligência artificial do jogo é muito evoluídas, com os “Sims” a responderem às condições da envolvente por si mesmo. Contudo, é frequentemente necessária a intervenção do jogador para que eles se mantenham no caminho certo. História Inicialmente, o jogo “The Sims” surgiu para ser um simulador de arquitetura, pois o processo de construção das habitações é baseado num sistema de arquitetura avançado, em que os “Sims” seriam meros personagens colaboradores. O jogo “The Sims”, foi criado pelo designer Will Wright, e a primeira versão foi...

Therefore Question 3 (b) will be amended as below and students will be expected to demonstrate that they have undertaken further research of their own to should how Caterpillar has adapted to strategic change since 2001 and the publication of the case study. It was felt that given the extensive additional material which is available, students should be given the opportunity to demonstrate their personal research skills and enhance the case study material by incorporating their own reasoned views on the company. To reflect this slight shift in emphasis it has been agreed that the marks for the two elements should be switched to reflect the additional content in Question 3 (b). The mark elements will be Question 3 (a) – 10 marks and Question 3 (b) will be 20 marks. The question will be as follows: Question Three: a) What were the major revolutionary......

...English Essay Rewrite Compare and contrast Text A and Text B Text A- Satirical Elegy on the death of a late famous general Text B- An obituary of William Davidson Both texts are similar, in the fact that they both are reminiscence on a person’s life after their death. Many differences, however, can be seen throughout the poem written by Jonathan Swift and the Obituary. The opening of both Texts is contradictory as Text A opens with a series of exclamations, ‘His Grace! Impossible! What, dead!, ’which gives an impression of surprise at the death but not a sense of grief is aroused. On the other hand, Text B embarks with a compliment ‘was in his element at the heart of the action’; both openings give a clear implication of the withdrawal of the rest of the text. The structure of both are also at a contrast, Text A is an elegy so Is a farewell to the dead but the fact that Swift writes a satire elegy therefore removes the traditional aspect of an elegy. Text B is an Obituary, but although also a farewell to the dead, it is read at a remembrance or a funeral so is written with aspiration to honour William Davidson and not undermine him in the way that Text A is. Text A is written with a sarcastic and mocking tone, through the poem it is highlighted that the general has earned the disrespected he has received through the mention also of his failures with use of the parallelism of ‘Nor widows’ sigh, nor orphans’ tears’ which gives the impression that no grief is......

Tom Sims

...Name Teacher NAme Tom Sims 11 December 2012 ` Ever wonder who revolutionized downhill snow sports? I can tell you that. One day in school Tom Sims was in his 7th grade shop class and he had to do an engineering project and he wanted to make a skateboard that you could use in the snow. If it wasn’t for Tom Sims I don’t know whether or not there would be snowboarding or even skiing. He is the godfather of snowboarding and aggressive downhill skiing. The way he thought of it is when he couldn’t skate in New Jersey in the winter and that frustrated him. So he invented a ski board, which is a snowboard just with a different name. So that winter he had something to use in the winter and then it just hit. He had owned his own skateboarding shop for a while after he got out of school, and Tony Hawk road for his skateboards, but then he wanted to add his invention in 7th grade to his production list. So he tried to get them on their in the late 1970’s but he didn’t have enough money for it so he had to put it off for awhile, but he didn’t tell anyone about it. Because he wanted it to be a surprise. So then in the early 1980’s he put them on his production line and they called “Sims Snowboards”. It was basically a huge hit when he produced them. People loved it, it was Americas next big thing. After the snowboards came along in the mid 1980’s Tom Sims decided he wanted to spice things up with them. So what he did was wanted to make jumps so u could get big air just like......

... There is a substance between these metals that allow charge to flow (salt bridge) so net charge doesn’t build up and “turn off” the battery. Draw a diagram (use your text) of an alkaline battery showing the + terminal, - terminal (and the type of metals used), the direction of current (+) flow and what’s inside. 2. What is the resistivity (ρ) of a resistor? What characteristics of a resistor affect the resistivity? Write a formula for this relationship, label each variable and indicate the units used to measure each. Would resistivity be constant for a specific resistor? 3. What is the difference between resistivity (ρ) and resistance (R)? What are the units of each? Lab Activity: Log on and go to the PhET website (PhET.colorado.edu) Go to simulations, then “electricity” then to the following: “Battery-Resistor”: Check “show battery” and “show cores”, watch what happens, adjust some variables 1. Why do electrons (blue dots) move? Draw a diagram of the battery, label the flow of electrons. The flow of current (+) is opposite; draw this and note if toward or away from + terminal of the battery. 2. What does the Ammeter (on the left) measure? How is this shown in the sim? 3. What role do the “green dots” in the resistor play in the sim? What do you think they represent? What does this tell you about the effect of resistors in a circuit? 4.

To Text or Not to Text

...To text or not to text Text messaging has become a convenient way to communicate or maybe an obsession. Texting as is it is commonly referred to today, allows individuals to literally to express their thoughts, information, and maintain relationships with the tips of their fingers. The use of the text message has redefined the way in which our society communicates with each other. Would you believe that 11% of people have sent a text message during sex! Wow! This trend seems to have become an addiction. Text messages are usually read within 5 minutes of being received and responded to instantly. Though this function has many benefits, it has created several negative problems as well. The cost to ones safety as well as the general public has made texting a highly debated subject. I prefer to just pick up the phone and make a call. It’s quick, it’s easy and if you don’t get an answer, you just leave a message or call back later. Thought of as a convenient way of communication, texting with technology advances faster than etiquette has contributed to the erosion of our society. The power of text messaging is one that has redefined how the world communicates and those that choose to use it have a responsibility to use it correctly. Text messaging allows for individuals to maintain person relationships for those that do not have the ability to see one another on a regular basis. As a study showed, the average teenager uses the text message for about 54% of their interactions......

The Sims

...I would like to focus on the last genre, construction. After defining what the constructivist approach symbolizes, I will use the example of the online gaming series, “The Sims,” to show how this genre differs from the academic and entertainment types in terms of content, benefits, and advertising techniques. The construction genre is often also called authoring, for it involves a player who is the writer, builder, or creator. “This constructivist approach focuses less on conveying academic or cultural content and more on providing tools for construction and tinkering… They draw less on explicit educational ideologies or images of play and more on images of mastery and control” (101). This genre integrates both education and entertainment, in a way. The games associated with this category provide children with a toolkit to create simulations. For example, a popular online game is called “The Sims.” It represents a life simulation game, or a “sandbox game,” in that it lacks any defined goals. Players create every physical and even emotional feature of their “Sim.” Directing their moods and satisfying their desires are the only true goals of the game. Building a town or constructing a house for your Sims is also part of the game. Some argue that it lacks educational purposes, but I beg to differ. The Sims certainly satisfies the player in terms of amusement and pleasure, but the game can also be beneficial to a certain degree. It can teach a child how to make effective......
