Activity Paper

On January 30, 2016 we celebrated my Pastors’ 5th Anniversary/Birthday at a local park. While I help set-up things, this young man caught my attention. As I sat there observing the young adolescent male, I decided that he would use be the person I use to complete my observation on. This male is of African American decent and is approximately 15-16 years old. This young man caught my attention because he was so polite and helpful in assisting a few of our elderly members from their cars and/or church van. I watched him interact and played basketball with an older male that he resembled a great deal, so I am assuming that the older male is his father. The young man started to socialize with and eventually joined the youth from my church as they played a few games. This young man had obviously started puberty, the physical transition to adulthood. He had a shadow of facial hair, his voice was deep and his shoulders were wide and muscular. But his feet and arms still appeared slightly out of proportion which made me think he had not reached his expected adult height. This observation is what led to my guess in his age to be approximately 15-16 years old. I made an educated guess on the fact that his facial hair and wide shoulders indicate that he is in later stages of puberty but his out of proportion feet and arms led me to think he was younger than 17-18 which is the normal age to have reached your adult stature. He was also much taller and bigger then all of the girls in his same age range and older, which is normal after the approximate age of 14-years-old. This young man was very agile and athletic. When I first noticed him, he was playing basketball with the older male that I am assuming is his father. He showed great control of the ball and his movements, his…...

...Critical Angle Activity 6 - Critical Angle Jairrus Publico1*, Reinner Pagayon2, Clauzette Lofamia3, Jessamine Draper4 National Institute of Physics, University of the Philippines, Diliman, Quezon City *Jairrus Publico: Abstract This paper discusses how to determine the coefficient of static friction by finding the critical angle between two different surfaces in contact on an inclined plane. It aims to determine the coefficient of static friction between two surfaces in an inclined plane by measuring the critical angle θc, the steepest angle of incline in which the mass in contact does not slide. This paper also aims to show the relationship between the materials in contact and the effect of their masses to the critical angle θc. The experiment also shows the accuracy of using Newton's second law in measuring the coefficient of static friction. Keywords: static friction, coefficient of static friction, critical angle 1. Introduction Friction is the force that opposes motion. It is the resistance of surfaces moving against one another. It is a force that plays a very important role in our lives. Without it, we cannot walk, do our daily chores, and even slide endlessly due to external forces. This phenomenon remained unknown to the early people until Leonardo Da Vinci (1452-1519) studied and analyzed its importance in machines. He observed that different materials in contact move with varying ease. He stated the following......

Csr Activities

...a great deal of attention in the developed world, there is a need for more research into CSR in the developing world. This paper considers the CSR practices of a small sample of multinational corporations (MNCs) and local firms in Bangladesh to better understand this situation. Introduction Corporate social responsibility (CSR) has generated significant debate in academic and corporate circles in recent times. This debate acknowledges the importance of CSR in the first-world, but raises questions regarding the extent to which corporations operating in developing countries have CSR obligations (Jamali and Mirshak, 2007). Conventional wisdom suggests that CSR is more relevant to corporations operating in the developed countries due to elevated community expectations of socially responsible behaviour. In contrast there is also a belief that societal expectations in the developing countries mainly centre on economic growth; therefore relegating CSR to be of lesser importance to the society and the firms (Khan, 1985). Against this back drop, this paper discusses the situation prevailing in the developing world to broaden our understanding of the perceptions and practices of CSR. Bangladesh is used as a test case for this purpose because this country is believed to posses the typical characteristics of a developing country. The main objectives of this paper are three-fold: (1) review the literature regarding CSR in the developing country context; (2) develop a conceptual......

...Daily lectures and other activities can become monotonous for even the most devoted students. When the schedule calls for a break, keep students learning at the same time they're having a good time. So School Resource Center should build fun activities for students. The first activity is Library Scavenger Hunt. This activity is for students to better understand the library and to see all that it has to offer. Divide students into several different groups in an effort to finish a library scavenger hunt first. Give each group a list of ten different items they need to find or list. Some examples of items on the scavenger hunt can be to "Introduce yourself to the librarians and list their names on this sheet," "List three bound magazine titles and explain what bound magazines are" and "Locate and list a reference book that represents one of your interests". The first team that answers all the questions correctly wins a prize. This activity will let the groups learn a lot more about the library than they knew before. Next activity is Readers Theater. This activity can help students become more excited about material in classic works of literature that are found in the library. First select several groups of students in a class or grade to put on a presentation of a scene or two from a work of fiction. The presentation can be funny, serious or a mix of both. Try to encourage students who would not normally participate by making it a competition of some kind with a......

Within this paper, the writer will provide her perceptions of several different counties: India, Pakistan, Afghanistan and Morocco. In addition to the writer’s perceptions of the country, the writer will review specific facts to see if the perceptions are warranted or are false. Local and Foreign Newspapers Within the News website, they categorize their stories to fall within local news, state and regional news, national news and world news. These are categorized by where the story is taking place. Within its website, the highest proportion of news coverage is set primarily on national and world news. This proportion is roughly at 75% for world and national news, 15% for state and regional news and 10% on local news. While the website provides the reader with the local news at the top of the page, there are a great deal more of national and world news highlights that also include the latest Associated Press headlines.

Mis301 Week 4 Learning Activity Paper

...Week 4 Learning Activity Paper    Summary of Major Principles From Sources Provided  MIS301      In the video “Warehouse Robots at Work” I think there are two real principles that can be  seen at play. The first is the importance of innovation. The warehouse business had been doing  business the same way for many many years. People would fulfill orders as they came in and  there were many moving parts and the potential for human error was great. Those in the  industry who were willing to attempt to implement the new innovative robotic warehouse  management systems were willing to take a step away from business as usual and uproot the  culture of a warehouse floor with these new ideas. This ability to innovate and leverage  technology proved beneficial. The second thing is how critical a SCM is to business. Only  through sophisticated software controls which integrate with a robust SCM are these robots able  to bring so much value to a business. Kiva describes their system,  “Using  hundreds  of  autonomous  mobile   robots  and  sophisticated  control  software,  the  Kiva   Mobile­robotic  Fulfillment  System  enables   extremely  fast  cycle  times  with  reduced  labor  requirements,  from  receiving  to  picking  to  shipping.  The  result  is  a  building  that  is  quick  and  low­cost to set up, inexpensive to operate and easy to change anywhere in the world.”    In  the  video  in  the  “If  Programmers  Made  Planes”  I  think  the  major ......

Writing Activity

...Writing Activities: Telling a Story in your English class This is an activity you can do if you're talking about interesting experiences, achievements, or telling stories. Give the students a few minutes to write about something that they've experienced in the past. The examples I give them are: paragliding or bungee jumping, meeting their girlfriend or boyfriend, a special vacation, eating an interesting food, etc. When the students are finished writing, have them put their names on the paper. Collect them. At this point, I'll usually put the students in teams of 2 or 3. Then, read the papers out loud to the class and have the students write down the name of the person they think it is. Exchange papers with another group, give answers and you have your winner. This works well in my classes because even though there are about 20 people, they know each other well because they are all the same major and have all their classes together. If there are some students not of the same major who are repeating the class, I'll make sure to put them in a group with other students who know the majority of the students. This could also work well for a smaller, more advanced level class of mixed-major students as a "get to know each other" kind of activity. I had some fun with the options on my cheap digital camera this week. I noticed that on many photo programs there are magazine templates available with some of these cameras with such titles as BOSS,FORTUNE, ADVENTURER, etc. so I......
