The Lift that Went Wrong “I wanted revenge; I wanted to dance on the graves of a few people who have made me unhappy. I’ve done it and got more than I ever dreamed of” (Anthony Hopkins). Revenge is a very poor way of retaliating to a situation. Mrs. Foster, a perfectionist, is being teased maliciously by her husband and is sick of playing games with him. Mr. Foster tries to push his wife into hating him or even making a fatal mistake towards their relationship. In the story, The Way Up to Heaven, Roald Dahl shows how a husband and wife can fall out of love by the wrong kind of teasing. When a false-hearted man falls out of line with his cruel intentions, a woman fails to listen to her hard and commits a great sin. Mrs. Foster makes an obsession out of being late to different occasions. Mrs. Foster’s nerves would start to get to her and she would twitch if the mere thought of being late would slip into her head. The twitch was a “tiny vellicating muscle in the corner of the left eye, like a secret wink” (156). Mrs. Foster would also “flutter and fidget about from room to room until her husband, emerged from his privacy” (156). Mrs. Foster has more than physical affects that happen as a result of her problem. She thinks that she will be late for her plane flight while exaggerating and using statements like “I know, I know, I know I’m going to miss it” (159) and “Now I really will miss it!”(159) to add more stress on herself. Mrs. Foster also has a tough time believing her husband “wasn’t purposely inflicting a nasty private little torture of his own on the unhappy lady” (157). Mrs. Foster always was a good and loving wife for thirty years. She does not deserve for even the thought of her husband doing anything dishonest being her back. Mr. Foster torments his wife and makes her life more stressful than necessary. It…...

Katrina: What Went Wrong?

...Monday morning, 29 August 2005, this is a day most New Orleans residents will never forget. This was the day a category 5 hurricane named Katrina made its catastrophic debut to the Gulf Coast region and killed over 1,300 people. (The White House, 2006, p. 1) After it was all said and done, the nation was shocked at the events that unfolded in Alabama, Louisiana and Mississippi and people were left wondering, “What went wrong?” National Geographic reported that the storm originated about a week earlier, 23 August, in the Caribbean and worked its up from the Bahamas making landfall Thursday, 25 August, in Miami. Winds at this time were 75-80 mph making it a category 1 hurricane causing some tree damage and killing two people. (Drye, 2005) The storm lost strength for a little while but once it hit the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico, it rapidly gained momentum and before long reached wind speeds up to 175 mph making it a category 5 hurricane. On Sunday, 28 August, New Orleans mayor, Ray Nagin, issued a mandatory evacuation order. Roughly 24 hrs later, the full strength of Katrina slammed into New Orleans and Biloxi. (Drye, 2005) Local and state emergency managers are responsible for coming up with a plan of action for different hazardous situations. Once a situation gets overwhelming for those levels of management, federal assistance is then requested. Prior to Hurricane Katrina’s arrival, various local emergency management agencies (LEMAs), such as local fire, police,......

Judge Lifts Ban Summary

...10/3/12 “Judge Lifts Ban on U.S. Sales of Samsung Tablet,” The Wall Street Journal, 10/2/2012 This article is concerned with a patent law matter. After she had issued a preliminary injunction in June requiring Samsung to halt sales of its Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, Judge Lucy Koh lifted the ban on Monday. Koh had based the injunction on the Samsung’s likely violation of Apple’s tablet design patent. The jury found Samsung in violation of six other patents, but the tablet design patent, which was the basis for the injunction, was not one of them. The jury reached a verdict in August, but Samsung simultaneously asked for the injunction to be lifted and appealed the case, which created a question of who had jurisdiction to lift the injunction. On Friday, the U.S. Court of Appeals ruled that Koh could decide on whether or not to lift the injunction. This ruling is the latest significant event in an ongoing legal patent war between Samsung and Apple. Both sides have filed posttrial motions, which Koh will rule on in December. Apple is seeking a higher reward for the patent infringement damages and a permanent ban on the sale of infringing products, while Samsung is looking to eliminate the reward and the sales ban altogether. Although the temporary ban on the Galaxy Tab 10.1 was lifted, a posttrial ban that Apple is seeking could still ban sales of the device because the jury did find that it infringed on some of Apple’s patents – just not the tablet design patent which...

Hydraulic Lift

...ADVANTAGES OF HYDRAULIC LIFT There are some advantages over other high production systems by using hydraulic lift. One of them is the ease in changing the volume of fluid being pumped. A wide range of crosshead plungers and liners are available to change the volume of power fluid pumped. Another advantage includes the high volume of production that the pump will handle each day. With the free pump, the lease pumper or a field technician can also change the pump without the need for calling out a well servicing crew and unit. Hydraulic lift are practical only in low-rise buildings due to the need for a tube that penetrates the soil to a depth equal to the height of the building. But, instead, are very safe, because they can not fall. Hydraulic lifts provide much security. In case of any fault in the driving group, or broken pipes, a valve at the entrance of the cylinder, regulates the output of oil to the cabin down gently. A battery is enough to feed an emergency descent system.  Because hydraulic elevators descend by gravity engine stopped, by simply opening a low-power solenoid enclosures passenger can be prevented due to faulty power supply. In a hydraulic elevator will get very soft starts and stops. As the whole system works in oil bath, wear is minimal, and its superior performance to that of electric elevators in more than 10%. The passage space utilization is optimized, because the hydraulic elevators do not carry balances.The lifting load is transmitted directly to...

Where Star Wars Episode Ii Went Wrong

...Tauntaun ESB – Luke vs. Fake Vader on Dagobah ESB – Luke vs. Vader ROTJ – Jabba’s Sail Barge ROTJ – Luke vs. Speeder Bike ROTJ – Vader igniting Luke’s lightsaber ROTJ – Luke vs. Vader (first) ROTJ – Luke vs. Vader (final) There was a practical reason for this: the lightsaber, as cool as it was, was a difficult special effect. It wasn’t a single laser blast that came and went – you had to rotoscope and animate and work to make that stupid laser sword stay onscreen. That meant time and time means money and fewer lightsabers mean less money spent. This actually worked out well, since lightsabers were the equivalent of the swords that a knight would carry with him onto the battlefield in Medieval Times (I’m guessing both the historical era and the restaurant). This meant that the lightsaber was a special weapon, but even then, it wasn’t the end all be all of being a Jedi. For example: Yoda, in Empire, although being a powerful Jedi Master, never once ignites a lightsaber because his ally was the Force, and a powerful ally it was. In fact, he went so far as to explain to Luke the folly of carrying a lightsaber with him into the cave – advice Luke didn’t take – as a reflection of his belief that the lightsaber is not the entirety of the Jedi philosophy. In the new trilogy: none of that. Again, all traces of subtlety is gone as it seems that lightsabers are everywhere. Not only do Jedis go through lightsabers as quick as fat guys go......

What Went Wrong

...Assignment 2: What Went Wrong? Was the bank justified in terminating Darrell on the grounds of his prior embezzlement conviction? Explain. Even though Darrell was convicted of embezzlement as a bank teller previously and spent time in jail, I believe in this instance the bank was not justified in terminating Darrell on the grounds of his prior embezzlement conviction. The two hiring persons from the bank did not communicate with each other about Darrell’s prior conviction on embezzlement so therefore he was hired by the bank with that conviction on his record giving him a second chance at doing the right thing. Most employees in the United States work "at will." That means an employer may choose to fire an employee at any time, for any reason, unless that reason is illegal. State and federal laws prohibit employers from relying on certain justifications for firing employees, such as discrimination or retaliation. If an employee has an employment contract -- whether written or oral, express or implied -- that contract may limit an employer’s ability to terminate the employee. If an employment contract exists, you must treat the employee fairly and fire the employee only for "good cause." The Implied Covenant of Good Faith and Fair Dealing - A wrongful discharge suit based on the implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing usually is a contract claim (Mallard 2013). Employment discrimination is protected under the 4th & 5th Amendment as well as Title VII of the......

What Went Wrong with Adelitas Way's

...Adelitas Way’s goal for their 3rd studio album Stuck was to make a rock record that would lead them to elite status, an album that was supposed to be “their arrival”. They wanted this record to be the one that would push them in the ranks of major bands like Shinedown, Alterbridge, Three Days Grace, Five Finger Death Punch, and among other notable acts. With 7 songs written in late 2012, the band started writing and recording demos for various months. Despite, guitarist Keith Wallen leaving Adelitas Way in May of 2013 his departure did not stop the band from making their long anticipated release. The band’s original plan for Stuck was to release a total of 12 songs, 11 in your face songs and one song with a pop vibe a song called “Drive”. Pre-Production for the new record started on July 31st, 2013 with Nick Raskulenicz revealed as the producer. The band started recording in early September at a cabin in Rock Falcon Studio in Nashville, Tennessee. It wasn’t long until the band’s record label Virgin Records, got involved in the making of Stuck. After, reviewing the band’s track list and demos the label rejected the release of 2 songs “Undercover You” and “Deserve This”. Although the song “Drive” was the only intended track to have a pop side to it the label demanded new songs to be written that had a more alternative sound. Several New songs were written including the ballad “Undivided” and the melodic track “Something More” both songs were some of the last songs......

What Went Wrong with Toyota

...Kyla Patillo Toyota in a Crisis Crisis Management Toyota is a well-known brand throughout the auto industry. The innovative Japanese company is famous for its car models such as the Camry, Corolla, and even the Lexus. Toyota U.S.A. first got their start in October 1937 in a once was Rambler dealership in Hollywood, California. In 1958 they began selling a few different models and in 1989 began their own brand of luxury cars where the Lexus was first introduced. Unique models and satisfactory customer service put Toyota in the top three bestselling automobile companies in America. Things were looking great for Toyota with wide economic growth they had little complaints, and even in a recession sales were still booming. With things going so well for Toyota why invest in crisis prevention? Toyota was soon going to find its answer to that very question. On August 8th, 2009, Mark Saylor-an off duty patrol man and three members of his family were driving close to Santee, California in his Lexus. All of a sudden the Lexus began to accelerate exceeding 100mph, one of the occupants called 911 reporting frantically that the Lexus “had no brakes,” seconds later the car crashed and caught fire claiming the lives of everyone inside. The birth of the Toyota crisis concerning the sticky gas pedals had begun. Toyota did not have much to say on the incident, instead of immediately creating an investigation to find out exactly why this happened and addressing the issue Toyota summed it......

Lift Paper

...2016 Agwa Omot Aerodynamics 2/25/2016 What is Lift What is Lift Lift So if you are any normal person like myself prior this class, you may have understood that there was some magical force, which makes it possible to airplanes to lift off the ground and take flight. Working in the airline industry allowed for me to learn many different things about planes and how they work, but the one of the most interesting things that I have yet to master is Lift. What is lift you may be asking yourself? Before we can understand lift itself we most first know the other factors that are needed in order to get a plane off the ground and in flight. Four factors that affect flight are weight, lift, thrust and drag. Weight is the force of gravity. It acts in a downward direction toward the center of the Earth. Thrust is the force that propels a flying machine in the direction of motion. Drag is the force that acts opposite to the direction of the motion. Drag caused by friction and differences in air pressure. And then there is lift. For lift, I decided to first look up how lift would be explained to someone of the lowest levels, and this is what I found. (Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum, n.d.) “Lift is the force that directly opposes the weight of an airplane and holds the airplane in the air. Lift is generated by every part of the airplane, but most of the lift on a normal airliner is generated by the wings. Lift is a mechanical aerodynamic force produced by......

Strategic Positioning - Where the Xbox One Went Wrong

...strategy, Microsoft expects the Xbox One as the best way to get a significant number of users to start using Microsoft apps and cloud services, as best described in the article below http://www.bloomberg.com/bw/articles/2013-11-21/xbox-is-a-test-for-the-one-microsoft-strategy By focussing on the being an “entertainment centre”, the target audience no longer is “hard core gamers”. The hardcore gamers” market segment is composed of users within the ages of 16 and 30 and represents 32% of all video game users. At launch, Microsoft’s promotional messaging seemed to focus on how some of Microsoft’s other apps are integrated into the console, rather than technological upgrades; all of this in line with the One Microsoft Strategy. What went wrong? As highlighted in the blog post below, by not focussing on the Hardcore Gamers segment, Microsoft alienated its most loyal consumer market; there were ripe for the taking by Sony, who did focus on hardcore gamers. This was a result of the One Microsoft Strategy, which had far reaching impacts on the success of the Xbox One. A case in point, Backward compatibility (the ability of consoles to support games from older consoles) was ostensibly missing when the Xbox one first launched. This problem is a classic example of how incorrect positioning can impact the strategy of a company. By not focussing on its core audience, Microsoft lost out to Sony. In order to rectify this, Microsoft made a slew of changes in its marketing......

Largo Books - What Went Wrong?

...Largo Books encountered a serious case of "spear phishing". Kaspersky Total Security defines spear phishing as, "an email or electronic communications scam targeted towards a specific individual, organization or business. Although often intended to steal data for malicious purposes, cybercriminals may also intend to install malware on a targeted user's computer." Largo Book customers were mislead into thinking that they had received an actual email from the company, presenting them with a deal most wouldn't pass up. A link was given in the email, proving its validity, and most likely asked for information like name, address, and credit information, typical questions a hacker would ask in order to receive the offered "deal". Sounding like this was a direct attack to Largo Books, hackers may have gotten into the network of the company in order to email its customers, compromising their Information System (IS). In order for this hack to have been as successful as it was, this scam had to be convincing enough to have hundreds of Largo Book customers respond. Valacich describes various types of IS used in organizations, and when matching its purpose to its type, electronic commerce system, customer relationship management system, and enterprise resource planning systems may have been the companies most vulnerable areas of attack. Today, hundreds of companies go through this exact issue. I personally have received emails from companies like Apple and even cell phone......
