Thermodynamics and Types of Energy
Rhonda Montgomery
American Intercontinental University

The energy act 2005 addresses issues having to do with energy usage covering fossil fuels, nuclear power and the efficiency of energy and includes two major provisions, tax incentives for the advanced energy saving technologies with the second provision being to set standards for the minimum efficiency with a set of smaller efficiency provisions.

The laws of thermodynamics are the study of energy and the ability of energy to be able to do work. Physicists were involved with studying the flow of heat from machines and the chemical changes that accompanied the work, obtaining its maximum efficiency, a machine that has the ability to run off of its own heat. The first law of thermodynamics states that energy and matter cannot be created or destroyed with the second law stating that it is impossible to take away heat from a reservoir and positive work with the energy moving away from the source not being able to flow from cold to hot. In order to have a continual flow of heat there must be energy present. In order to have a continual flow of heat there must be energy present. The third law of thermodynamics states that all processes will stop when the temperature reaches an absolute zero and with this the molecules will then not move and as a result the production of energy will be stopped. Scientific law applies to energy conversions and the need for energy efficiency by just as in any transformation the energy is conserved with no new energy created and none disappearing with the ability to transfer from one form to the other residing then in a different state. The pros and cons of various energy types: * Fossil Fuels/Natural Gas/Coal/Oil A pro of fossil fuels…...

...MS-13 final MS-13 History and Origins The Mara Salvatrucha gang originated in Los Angeles, in the 1980s by Salvadoran immigrants in the neighborhood between Pico and Wilshire also know as the city's Pico-Union neighborhood. They immigrated to the United States Due to a 12-year civil war in El Salvador, which resulted in over 100,000 deaths and over a million refugees( The Salvadorian refugees and immigrants predominantly settled in southern California and Washington, D.C. Some of the refugees and immigrants had ties with La Mara, a violent street gang from El Salvador. Others had been members the Farabundo Marti National Liberation Front (FMNL) during the El Salvadorian civil war(Rimmer, 2009). FMNL was made up of Salvadorian peasants who were trained as guerilla fighters. Many were adept at using guerilla tactics and working with explosives, firearms, and booby traps. Salvadorians were not accepted into the Los Angeles Hispanic community, and were frequently targeted by local Hispanic and African American gangs notably the 18th street gang. Due to this suffering, in the late 1980s, some refugee members of La Mara and FMNL formed what is now known as the Mara Salvatrucha (MS) street gang. Like many other street gangs, MS initially formed for protection, but quickly developed a reputation for being organized and extremely violent criminal enterprise. The gang’s rivals took note. One, known as the Mexican Mafia, or “la eme” for short, and is one of...

Montgomery Bus Boycott

...How significant was the Montgomery Bus Boycott in advancing the civil rights movement? The Montgomery bus boycott of December 1955 influenced a continuous boycott that inspired many individuals and groups to stand up against public transport segregation in order to quicken the pace, and also the likelihood of bus boycotts having a strong impact on the advancement of the civil rights movement. Rosa Parks was the main culprit behind the boycott as it was her decision to refuse to move seats after requested by the driver several times. However, as she evidently declined, it created an uproar of boycotts, and others began to see how blatant discrimination and racism against black Americans was becoming too extreme, and in some cases unnecessary. Following this, the appointment of Martin Luther King, Jr. to be the head of the Montgomery Improvement Association helped the boycott last for almost an entire year; the success shown by the supreme court order to desegregate buses. The Montgomery bus boycott is a very significant piece of history regarding the advancement the civil rights movement, and rightly so because it acted as the paving stone for further boycotts and other methods of protest, such as sit-ins and freedom rides. As the boycott was very successful, and raised a lot of public awareness surrounding the reality of racism and segregation; It encouraged other people (black and white) to stand up for what they believe in, and fight against the increased levels of......

The Montgomery Bus Boycott

...The Montgomery Bus Boycott ’’Change does not roll in on the wheels of inevitability, but comes through continuous struggle. And so we must straighten our backs and work for our freedom. A man can't ride you unless your back is bent’’ Martin Luther King All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood. (Article 1. of the (1948) Universal Declaration of Human Rights) The Montgomery Bus Boycott officially started on December 1, 1955. That was the day when the blacks of Montgomery, Alabama, decided that they would boycott the city buses until they could sit anywhere they wanted, instead of being relegated to the back when a white boarded. 1.) The story of the Montgomery Bus Boycott is often told as a simple, happy tale of the "little people" triumphing over the seemingly/apparently unbeatable forces of evil. The truth is a little bit different and a little more complex. "The movement started on the day in 1943 when a black seamstress named Rosa Parks paid her bus fare and then watched the bus drive off as she tried to re-enter through the rear door, as the driver had told her to do. When Parks refused to give up her seat, a police officer arrested her. As the officer took her away, she recalled that she asked, "Why do you push us around?" She remembered him saying, "I don't know,...

Montgomery Bus Boycott

...The Montgomery bus boycott changed the way people lived and reacted to each other. The American civil rights movement began a long time ago, as early as the seventeenth century, with blacks and whites all protesting slavery together. The peak of the civil rights movement came in the 1950's starting with the successful bus boycott in Montgomery Alabama. The civil rights movement was lead by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., who preached nonviolence and love for your enemy."Love your enemies, we do not mean to love them as a friend or intimate. We mean what the Greeks called agape-a disinterested love for all mankind. This love is our regulating ideal and beloved community our ultimate goal. As we struggle here in Montgomery, we are cognizant that we have cosmic companionship and that the universe bends toward justice. We are moving from the black night of segregation to the bright daybreak of joy, from the midnight of Egyptian captivity to the glittering light of Canaan freedom" explained Dr. King. In the Cradle of the Confederacy, life for the white and the colored citizens was completely segregated. Segregated schools, restaurants, public water fountains, amusement parks, and city buses were part of everyday life in Montgomery, Alabama “Every person operating a bus line should provide equal such a manner as to separate the white people from Negroes." On Montgomery's buses, black passengers were required by city law to......

The movement had started since after Mrs. Rosa parks been arrested for not get up her seat for a white that period everything, everywhere in the south were segregated in somehow or someway. People of color were treated as if they were nothing, they were called niggo, cow etc. but king has put all his effort to stop or abolish the racial inequity from African-American life, and nevertheless it was almost impossible. Segregation was made a law that was adopted by all institutions in the south. It was to whom their skins were different in color, but not all of these people have accepted the law. Others believe it is not fair to have a separation. The revolution has started when Mrs. Parks a seamstress at the Montgomery fair department left work tired on December 1st 1955.

...Identifying Resources available for Children with Multiple Sclerosis and their Families Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is an unpredictable disorder of the central nervous system. Multiple Sclerosis is an autoimmune disease in which the body, through its immune system, launches a defensive attack against its own tissues and can range from relatively benign to somewhat disabling to devastating as contact between the brain and other parts of the body is disrupted. MS affects the ability of nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord to communicate with each other effectively. The initial symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis are often blurred or double vision, poor contrast, eye pain, red-green color distortion, or even blindness in one eye. Most people with MS experience muscle weakness in their extremities and difficulty with coordination and balance. These symptoms may be severe enough to impair walking or standing. The worst cases of MS can produce partial or complete paralysis. Most people with MS also show par aesthesis, transitory abnormal sensory feelings such as numbness, prickling, or “pins and needles” sensations. Some people may also experience tremors, pain, dizziness, hearing loss and speech impediments. Many people with MS experience cognitive impairments such as difficulties with concentration, attention, memory, and poor judgment but such symptoms are usually mild and are frequently overlooked. Depression and anxiety is another common feature of multiple sclerosis. ......

Ms and Diet

...Sclerosis. Multiple Sclerosis is a disease that affects the Central Nervous System. There are multiple ways to treat the symptoms of MS but none more important than diet. Paying close attention to one’s diet plays a major role in improving living with MS. When I was diagnosed with MS making changes to my diet made noticeable improvements in daily functions.               Multiple Sclerosis(MS) is a disease that attacks the Central Nervous System(brain and spinal cord). The cause of MS is unknown but it is believed that environmental factors along with being genetically predisposed may trigger the disease. MS impedes signals to and from the brain which affects many bodily functions. MS is known as a immune- mediated disease, meaning that it is part of a group of diseases that don't have a “trigger” but go through inflammatory passages and lead to inflammation. More specifically MS causes the immune system to attack the myelin sheath around the nerves and the nerves themselves. The bodies T- cells, white blood cell that plays a central role in searching out and destroying objects marked as harmful to the body, carry out the destruction of the myelin sheath. Myelin is a protective fatty coating around the nerves in the Central Nervous System. Once the myelin sheath or nerve is damaged the disrupted signals lead to symptoms. There are various symptoms for MS which include any of the following: Fatigue, numbness/ tingling, weakness, vertigo, sexual dysfunction, pain,......

James Montgomery Flagg

...In 1877, James Montgomery Flagg was born at Pelham Manor, New York. Flagg also known as J. Montgomery, he was an early master of pen and ink, but he was much more. He was an American artist and illustrator who gain reputation during the first part of the twentieth century. He worked in media ranging from fine art painting to cartooning but he is mostly known for his political posters. Flagg was married twice. His first wife was Nellie McCormack who survived till 24 years and ended when she died. Dorothy Wadman was his second wife and did not have any children. He had a complicated relationship with his parents. He was enthusiastic about drawing from his young age James Montgomery Flagg is generally regarded by art historians as an extraordinary talented child, because at the young age of twelve, he sold his first illustration to a well known magazine. From 1898-1900 he studied fine art in London and Paris with his friend, he believed that artists were born with talents, not trained, and counted his formal art training as a waste of time. After that he came back to the United States where he created countless illustrations for books, magazine covers, political and humorous cartoons, advertising, and spot drawings. After a few short years later, Flagg was already an employee of illustrator for two main humor magazines. Although he created some achievement early in his career as a painter, illustration was his true passion. His earliest books......

Ms and Pregnancy

...MS and pregnancy The diagnosis of MS should not prevent you from becoming a parent but for this purpose it is very important to consult your doctor and your family. MS affects people who have or are planning to start a family, but more often women than men. This raises many questions about causal relationship between MS and pregnancy. Although, many years ago, women with multiple sclerosis are advised to avoid pregnancy that their condition would not worsened, but today we access different insights. Studies conducted over the past few decades have shown that the symptoms of multiple sclerosis can be alleviated or even disappear during pregnancy. The analysis of works that report about 13 144 women with MS revealed the following data: * MS has no effect on pregnancy. * No increase in negative symptoms nor for mother nor for the child. * Woman with MS can expect a normal pregnancy and normal delivery. For all these reasons, women with MS, especially those with mild neurological deficits, should be encouraged to become pregnant as soon as possible due to the progressive flow of the disease. It is important to break down some of the prejudices that exist and women provide the necessary information: 1. Does MS affect on the fertility of women? 2. Does MS affect on pregnancy and the baby's health? 3. Is it possible to apply spinal or epidural anesthesia during childbirth? 4. Is it recommended breastfeeding and is it safe? 5. Does......

Montgomery Bus Boycott

...“Assess the significance of the Montgomery Bus Boycott in the struggle for civil rights in the USA” In the southern society pre-1955 black Americans where thought of as second class citizens. Southern states had white only restaurants, white only rest zones in bus centres, water fountains etc. in the south of America is was common that buses were segregated, with specific areas on a bus reserved for white customers and other seats for black customers. The Civil Rights Movement is often said to have started with the actions of Rosa Parks from Montgomery, Alabama, in December 1955. Rosa Parks was a civil rights activist who protested against Montgomery’s racially segregated buses. She protested by refusing to give up her seat on a bus to white American man, “she decided on that day she wasn’t going to move. There was no assault” , this resulted in Rosa Parks getting arrested for breaking the Montgomery Bus Segregation Laws. It was said that Rosa Parks reaction after a hard day’s work and was not pre-planned. But evidence suggest that the Bus Boycott had been a while in the planning . After Rosa Parks arrest all black Americans stayed off the buses for a total of 382 days which caused the bus company to lose 65 percent of its income leading to great economic pressure. This led to the community organising a car pool which carried many of the passengers the buses would have carried, this showed great community spirit and how powerful people working together could be.

Tchula, Ms

...The general economic decline for most Mississippi blacks since the 1960s has been accompanied by the resurrection of white racist terrorism and political violence. The tortured body of one unidentified black man was found floating down the river in Cleveland, MS. The man’s sex organs had been hacked off and the coroner later reported finding his penis in his stomach. On January 11, 1981, the body of 45-year-old Lloyd Douglas Gray was found hanging from a tree in Tallahatchie County, MS. The coroner pronounced Gray’s death as a suicide, and no autopsy was performed. A month later, the body of 32 year old Roy Washington was found in Cypress Creek, in Holmes County, MS. Washington was badly beaten in the head and face. His hands were bounded behind him and then he was shot in the head at point-blank range. The corpse was weighed down with a car jack and wrapped by barbed wire. Scars around his neck indicated that he had also been lynched. Local white newspapers were quiet about the murder. Holmes County police did not aggressively pursue leads in the case and even followed a black reporter around while he conducted his own investigation. The majority of the other black men who were found beaten or hanging in MS have also been officially labeled suicides. Familiar with the pattern of racial violence, one black resident of Tallahatchie County declares, “If they say it was suicide, it was probably a lynching.”[2] The Case of Eddie Carthan Eddie Carthan......

...Overview The Smith Foundation is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to fund public awareness campaigns and research programs about eye care. The foundation was founded over forty years ago with a multimillion-dollar endowment from industrialist and philanthropist Charlie Smith. Currently the foundation is operating on an annual budget of slightly less than $1,500,000.00 (Santora, 2006, p. 362). Their newest chief executive officer (CEO) is Dr. Rhonda Clark, an organizational outsider with no work experience within the foundation. Although only offered a one-year appointment, Clark has great academic credentials in the form of a PhD in political science and policy analysis from a major U.S. West Coast university, as well as a graduate school professorship. The 54-year-old also has an enviable amount of management experience in the nonprofit and public sectors. In the last thirty years, Clark has held positions as a director or research for a major statewide political office holder, the director or planning in a large metropolitan hospital, and the director of programs at a small foundation (Santora, 2006, p. 363). Very early in her new position as head of the foundation, Clark set about quickly learning the key decision makers and stakeholders on the board and in the larger community. She also established her initiatives at a board meeting where she detailed the major elements of her latest proposal. Realizing she did not have the full support of the entire board,......
