The U.S. Space & Rocket Center is located in Huntsville, Alabama. The facility is one of the nation’s top science centers and is home to America’s Space Program. Huntsville, Alabama, is the birthplace of the US Space program and the Center is used as a location to help that story. More than 60 years ago, German Rocket scientists were moved to Huntsville following the end of World War Two. The US Army tagged their mission, “Operation Paperclip.” The Army used that name to describe more than 100 German scientists whose names were inside a folder. The materials were held together by a simple paperclip. The name stuck and became one of America’s greatest accomplishments as the Germans began working for the United States Army to develop missiles. At the end of World War Two, the Army allowed the German scientists to continue their work. Their dreams were not to create, build or deploy army rockets, but rather to create rockets that could go into space. In 1958, President Dwight D. Eisenhower created the agency under the name The National Aeronautics and Space Act. The NASA mission, according to President Eisenhower, was to encourage peaceful applications in space science. As the program grew, President Kennedy challenged the nation to go the moon in the decade of the 1960’s. In Kennedy’s words, “We choose not to do this because it is easy but because it is hard.” NASA, using more than 20 billion dollars in federal funding, began building the Saturn V rocket to take man to the moon. On July 20, 1969, Neil Armstrong became the first man to step onto the Moon. The exhibits at the US Space & Rocket Center are designed to tell that story. However, the Rocket Center provides another opportunity and has for more than 30 years. The U.S. Space & Rocket Center is also home to Space Camp®, one of the nation’s premiere camps where the nation’s…...

Death in America First Paper

...Death In America First Paper Philippe Aries and Death in Early America In Philippe Aries’ Western Attitudes Towards Death, the author describes four separate, general attitudes towards death that occurred between 300 A.D. and the present. The two most relevant to the early American period that we have studied in class are the ones he terms “One’s Own Death,” in the period from c.1200 A.D. to 1700, and “Thy Death,” in the period between 1700 and 1920. Several different sources illustrate various aspects of these different stages, as well as the changes between them as the “language of death” varied over time. They offer evidence of the nature of the relationship between man and God, peoples’ reactions to death in their surroundings, and the changing overall American view towards death. One of the most obvious ways that Aries’ theories are reflected in early American writing is in the accounts of deathbed scenes. Because the artes moriendi shows a “struggle between the forces of good and evil who are fighting for possession of the dying man,” (Aries 36) as well as a “final test” (Aries 37) of the dying man’s virtue, the “ritual solemnity of the deathbed… by the end of the Middle Ages had assumed among the educated classes a dramatic character, an emotional burden which it had previously lacked” (Aries 38). Aries then states that this change had the effect of increasing the dying person’s role in his own death (Aries 38). We can see this deathbed drama and emotion in......

Brownies First Person View Paper

...Laurel, but my friends call me “Snot”. I am an African American and in the fourth grade. I am going to tell you a story about my adventure at Camp Crescendo, a summer camp for fourth graders near the suburbs of Atlanta, Georgia. I announced that by the second day of camp, all the girls in my Brownie troop had decided they were going to "kick the asses" of every girl in Brownie Troop 909, who were all white girls. The other black girls and myself took a dislike to the white girls when we first saw them. Arnetta, our ringleader, said they smelled "like Chihuahuas. Wet Chihuahuas." When she said that they were like "Caucasian Chihuahuas," we all went into fits of laughter. They regard the word Caucasian as a hilarious term of abuse that can be used in almost any situation. We all have seen whites before but have never had much to do with them. But the ten white girls we encounter at the camp are closer to us and, therefore, more real and capable of exciting envy and hatred. At the end of the first day at camp, Arnetta reports she heard one of the white girls refer to Daphne, a black girl, as "a nigger." On prompting by Arnetta, Daphne, a quiet girl, nods her head to confirm that the derogatory term was used. Arnetta tells the other girls that they cannot let the white girls get away with using that word about them. She told us that we must teach the white girls a lesson. Janice suggests that they put daddy-long-legs in the white girls' sleeping bags, and when the girls awake,......

First Amendment Paper

...First Amendment Paper San Juana Campos 4/15/2013 HIS/301 Mr. Garcia Introduction The ancestors ratified the first amendment of the US constitution in 1791, which formed the basis of Bill of Rights. It is imperative to assert that this amendment contains five provisions, which include choice of vocalization, press, and religion. Other provisions include the rights to petition, as well as assembly. The first amendment is critical since it shields some of the significant, fundamental human rights, as well as reflecting on concerns, which the government may ignore (Patterson, 2009). All these rights have limitations, thus prompting the Supreme Court to take primacy in passing the verdicts. Some of these cases relate to the five stipulations of amendment one. The distinguished cases include ‘Edward against South Carolina of 1963’ and ‘Hazelwood School District against Kuhlmeier of 1988’. The former case encompasses detainment of nonviolent protesters for unlawful conduct. The later is about liberty of expression in schools. Significant Cases Related to the Freedoms The case of Edwards against South Carolina occurred in 1963 when an assemblage of 187 Negros scholars gathered to express peacefully. This owed to the fact that they felt upset by laws of South Carolina, which purportedly forbidden their privileges. This group of lobbyists assembled at the spot of State......

...First paper The stronger the evidence the more likely an intervention is to be accepted into clinical practice. According to Houser (2012, p.471) it is recommended to determine that study satisfies general requirements of inclusion in an integrative review, meets screening criteria as a qualitative study, its level of evidence based on standards of trustworthiness and strength of recommendations based on quality of evidence. A study satisfies requirements for inclusion in review if it was published in peer-reviewed journal and if the problem addressed in the study meets criteria for inclusion in a review. There are five levels of evidence that can be assigned to a study using a somewhat formalized process described by Houser (2012, p.275). Level 1 study has the highest possible standards of evidence and while Level 5 has the lowest(Houser, 2012). To be classified as Level 1 study, it has to meet the standards for transferability, credibility, dependability and verifiability. The strength of recommendations is assigned according to three grades A though C. Grade A level studies are supported by one or more Level 1 studies while Grade C are only supported by no higher than Level 4 studies(Houser, 2012). By examining the studies levels of evidence and grades are determined according to various standards. Depending on the assigned level and grade results of such studies can be considered for implementation in a clinical practice(Houser, 2012). Thus a Level 1 and......

Background of Study for Paper Charcoal. (Go Easy Its Our First Time)

...Background of Study We wanted to find out whether paper charcoal could be an alternative for regular charcoal so that less trees will be cut down for the purpose of making charcoal. We also hope to prove that paper charcoal is better than charcoal in terms of: a. Speed b. Reliability c. Reusability d. Value for money Statement of problem: This study aims of comparing paper charcoal composed of newspaper against commercial charcoal made of wood. Specifically: 1. Which type of charcoal has the best speed? 2. Which type of charcoal is the more trusted in cooking? 3. Can each type of charcoal be used more than once? 4. Which one is worth your money? Hypothesis: Paper charcoal will prevail over the regular charcoal in the four categories of comparison Definition of terms: 1. wood: a material obtained from trees, is used to make charcoal and other paper products. 2. Charcoal: a flammable material made from bark of trees, used for heating in some areas of the world. 3. Commercial Charcoal: Charcoal sold in stores and markets, usually comes in chunks or briquettes 4. Paper: a material also obtained from trees, used to write, print, wrap, etc., made from the bark of tress and bleached. Significance of study: 1. Environment- the study aims to prove that paper charcoal is better, thus reducing the number of trees cut down. 2. Community- the study benefits the community because if proven right, people start to buy or make paper charcoal and doing either is cheaper than buying regular......

...LET1 Task 317.1.5-10, 11 Craig Bailey ( 000217808 ) Western Governors University Section A of this task asks to describe each of the 5 bases of power from the given scenario supported by examples. It should be noted that the 5 bases are split into to 2 primary power base types. Legitimacy, Reward and Coercive all belong in the Formal power type. The second power type is Personal power. The Expert and Referent bases fall into this category. Each power base is described below. 1. Reward is where a person expects a positive response to an action performed. The response can be praise, time off, monetary, or anything else the person values as a reward. In our scenario the manager is offering the prospect of a yearly bonus through a superior rating for those who work more than 40 hours per week. Employee 1 values that reward and puts forth the effort in hopes that his or her performance will meet the goal of a superior rating. 2. The second base of power to discuss is Legitimacy. Employee 1's manager has reminded the subordinates of the yearly bonus and Employee 1 acknowledges that if he or she wants to get the bonus and go on a vacation, he or she must follow the recommendation by the manager to work additional hours in the hope that he or she will obtain a superior rating from the manager. Additionally, Employee 3 received legitimacy from being selected to lead the sales team on his or her project to increase sales. 3. The third base of power is Coercive. Employee 2......

...First Paper The traditional retail model has focused on finding high-margin, high-volume products or services because limited space means reduced space inventory. For example, organizations such as Walmart select the biggest hits from the broadest genres, called the “short head.” The short head means Walmart will only carry a select mix of country, pop, and rock that is calculated to provide the greatest cost/benefit. The business model of Amazon is different. Amazon provides the short head but also provides the “long tail” of more than 100,000 different audio selections. The competition for customers between the Walmart and Amazon marketplace is profoundly changing the face of retail business today. Using the assigned reading and the Argosy University online library resources, find at least three scholarly articles that address similar current trends related to e-business and how e-business is changing the face of businesses today. Using your company or a real-world example from your research, respond to the following: * Describe how technology is changing the face of businesses today. * Describe the most critical business processes that utilize information systems in your selected company. * Explain how IT makes the company’s business processes faster, cheaper, more accurate, and customer-savvy than that of competitors. * Cite at least three sources found in your online library research.

...Toyota and Why It Is So Successful Robert B. Austenfeld, Jr. (Received on May 10, 2006) 1. Introduction The purpose of this paper is to describe one of the most successful companies in the world and explain the reasons for that success. Fortune magazine’s February 20, 2006 edition featured this headline on its cover: “The Tragedy of General Motors” and a story of GM’s woes by Carol J. Loomis. Two weeks later, Fortune’s next edition on March 6, 2006 had this headline on its cover: “How Toyota Does It: The Triumph of the Prius.” This stark contrast is typical of the stories circulating in the media these days. At a time when a company that was once admired and for many years held the lofty position of the world biggest automaker appears on the brink of bankruptcy1), Toyota is about to overtake it in global sales this year (O’Dell, 2005). Why is Toyota continuing to thrive at a time when other carmakers are struggling to survive? At the outset I would like to acknowledge the main source for much of the information in this paper: The Toyota Way: 14 Management Principles from the World’s Greatest Manufacturer by Jeffrey K. Liker (2004). This paper is organized as follows: 1. 2. 3. 4.

My First Rodeo- Memory Paper

...“Well it's bulls and blood, it's dust and mud, it's the roar of a Sunday crowd. It's the white in his knuckles, the gold in the buckle he'll win the next go 'round. It's boots and chaps, it's cowboy hats, it's spurs and latigo. It's the ropes and the reins, and the joy and the pain, and they call the thing rodeo” (Garth Brooks- Rodeo). Going to rodeos has always been one of my favorite things to do. I would go to a rodeo every weekend if it was possible, but no rodeo will ever compare to seeing it all for the first time. It was a clear September day in Fort Madison, Iowa, we all piled out of the car and headed to the ticket window. I was dressed to the nines, with my wranglers tucked into my red boots, my fleece horse jacket was zipped up over my button up, and my cowgirl hat perched on my head, covering my braided hair. I was rodeo-ready. After waiting in line for about 15 minutes we had our tickets and were in the gate! We bypassed all of the vendors selling hats, jewelry, and clothes to get to our seats. We didn’t have to wait long before The National Anthem and the flags were brought in on horseback. After The National Anthem was over the announcer said that something called Grand Entry was about to begin. I didn’t know it then but I was about to see my favorite part of the rodeo. All of the sudden the gates opened and horseback riders started streaming in. There had to be over 500 riders, all at full speed running around the arena. It was a beautifully dangerous......

...normal service restored. But as the brief conversation proceeded, the dispatcher became confused by the caller's repeated insistence that he would "activate" the system and the dispatcher concluded-without attempting to elicit greater clarification from the caller, or any other confirmation-that 810 wanted its system taken out ofservice. Seven to nine minutes later, Holmes began receiving fire signals from the building. However, consistent with his mistaken impression that the system was to be taken out of service, the dispatcher simply assumed that he should ignore those signals. In fact, a four-alarm fire bad started on the 28th floor, which was reported directly to the fire department by others-but not until minutes after the signals were first received by Holmes. A spate of lawsuits followed. [ IL Initially, we must determine whether 810 may pursue tort claims against Holmes, or is limited to breach of contract remedies. Holmes argues that its duties to 810 arose solely from its contractual undertaking and thus this case at most presents a breach nf contract. 810 counters that grossly negligent fire alarm service threatens life and property and is actionable under traditional tort law. Resolution of this threshold issue affects the negligence claims and the availability of contribution. Some claims plainly sound in tort-for example, the case of a pedestrian struck by a careless driver. Others are clearly contract, like the case of the merchant who fails to deliver goods......

...The actors throughout this play steadily used others to gain their own attention. The message this play left behind after many laughs was do not use others, plain and simple. The space was a well-constructed thrust stage however, the stage was not raised off the ground and the seats appeared to be mobile which lead to the belief that this is an Environmental Theater. As for the layout of the stage, there was a couch and a table in center stage for the first two acts, a door to the unseen outside front of the house upstage right, there were two large double doors upstage center leading to the backyard garden, and a raised floor upstage left containing a piano, a bookcase and a door leading to the home library. Stage left there was a half spiral staircase that lead up to the second floor which had a painting and lights that extended across to stage right. The second floor also contained the bedrooms for the house but the doors were not in sight. The detail was greater than expected: the hardwood floor throughout the first floor seemed to be genuine, the actual bookcase filled with real books not stage books, and the extremely large double doors with translucent glass and floral designs lead to the Garden, which featured an array of plants behind the doors. The entire space was well lit for the duration of the play; the stage took place inside the Bliss’ home so the bright lighting added a confortable feel to the inside of the house. The theatre was nearly sold out; it was......
