  • Waste Time
    689 words
    Environment Satire It has come to my attention that our nation is in the middle of earth week. At a time when we all stop, as Americans, and take a look at all of the great accomplishments we have made that we could have possibly overlooked while running around with our busy schedules. We recognize our efforts to create powerful industries and production plants that produce endless chemical compounds and new materials. The discovery and use of fossil fuels, of which has fed our automobiles and a...
  • Turn To Fark
    305 words
    It is 3: 36 am, hours before this assignment is due. One last journal must be completed before sunrise. Being the foremost procrastinator, my fellow procrastinating peers had brought Fark. com to my attention. Fark. com is what is referred to as a "blog site" where funny news stories are linked to, for personal enjoyment. Fark. com finds current news stories from around the globe, posting links to their original sites, categorizing the stories by stupidity and providing a brief, witty, caption t...
  • Clock Arithmetic On A 6 Hour Clock
    795 words
    Clock Arithmetic The topic of time has always been one of interest to me at least on a philosophical basis. Through the works of Einstein, ancient timepieces and calendars such as Stonehenge, and even theories on past and present, time is everywhere. I chose this topic to perhaps explore further the relevance of clocks and timepieces in mathematics and arithmetic. To gain a better understanding of the mathematical features of time would be rewarding knowing that philosophy and mathematics are cl...
  • Effective Time Management

    Time Management and Family Issues Upon returning to college, the mature student (any student over the age of 24) soon realizes that their ability to manage time effectively directly impacts their learning experience and their family life.

  • Our Connection Flight To Osaka
    550 words
    It was May 25, 2001. What was clear however, was the fact that I was soon going to be on my own in a country where I did not know the language or the people that I would be meeting there and staying with. The adrenaline rushed through me as I packed the last of my things and ran out of the door. I closed the door to my house and jumped in the car. The idea of leaving America and going to Japan seemed to really not have hit me yet, but now that I look back I know that I had to feel it. I think th...

  • Their Working Less Hours
    546 words
    American businessmen will ultimately accept such demands as the eight hour day and forty hour week, not because they were forced to do so, but because it was good for business. I agree with this statement 100%. During the first years of the 20th century, the companies had total control over their workers. Take the coal mining industry for example. It started the workers off young, often around the age of 8! This made sure that for the rest of their life, theyd never know anything other than mini...

  • Sundial's Total Dependence On The Sun
    974 words
    Description of a Mechanism The Sundial INTRODUCTION Different devices have been used for centuries to mark time. Before clocks and watches were invented in the 18th century, the sundial was the most common device used to gauge the time of day. The sundial relies on the sun and its angle in the sky to indicate the time. Though a sundial's total dependence on the sun makes them less useful on cloudy or rainy days, sundials have long been an important time teller and calibrator for more sophisticat...
  • Determination Of The Time Of Death
    3,428 words
    Investigative Techniques to Determine Time of Death One of the first steps involved in a homicide investigation is the determination of the time of death. While knowing the time of death is not crucial in each and every homicide case, it can be of significant importance in some. Except for a bullet passing through a victim's head and striking a clock in the same room, determining time of death is not an exact science. However, there are a number of different indicators, most of which are evaluat...

  • Usual Jackie Chan Movies From Hong Kong

    Rush Hour The action genre had really gone sour ever since Terminator II died out. Action stars like Jean Claude Van Damme and Sylvester Stal one had basically made carbon copies of their previous hits and re-released them under different names. However, starting in 1998 with Rush Hour, starring Chris Tucker, Jackie Chan, and moving on to hits like The Matrix, the action genre is gaining new life with unique mixes of stars and plots to add life to the mindless action that has plagued the genre i...
  • Culmination Of Our Last Four Years

    Wes Bullard Lisa Rasmussen Comp 1113 September 29, 2003 The Culmination It has happened to nearly everyone in America. We face those moments in time when the anticipation of an event is joyful, but the experience is sad. The occasion that evoked these emotions in me was my high school graduation. I felt I had made it; I had reached the pinnacle of my young life, unscathed for the most part. There were the unavoidable conundrums that every kid is confronted with in high school: What am I going to...
  • Good Bloke
    457 words
    A Parrot in the Pepper Tree by Chris Stewart Well, gosh, hello again. It's me, friendly Chris, the bloke who wrote that book about moving to Spain. It did so well, you know, that my publisher reckoned I should have another go. So what can I tell you this time, then? Not so long ago I went up to do some sheep shearing in northern Sweden and my car broke down. I could have frozen to death, but luckily I didn't as a mechanic was able to fix it. Domingo, my neighbour in the valley, married a Swedish...
