Cloud Chamber

Today in class we made cloud chambers. Cloud chambers are inexpensive apparatuses used to detected and visually see the path that some or these particles take when passing through the atmosphere. Also, if you have the right tools you can see how certain objects create and alter the path of alpha particles. We began the class by creating our own Cloud Chambers. The way cloud chambers work is simple. Cloud Chambers were used to detect ionization particles. Cloud Chambers are sealed environments with super saturated liquid such as water or alcohol. The liquid is allowed to vaporize in the chamber. This vapor forms a mist in the sealed chamber. Any cosmic particle, such as a alpha or beta particle, ionizes the mist and forms a ionized nuclei. This nuclei form causes the mist to condense around it and form a cloud. For our chambers we used donated peanut butter jars that were cleaned out. These jars had felt stickers placed along the inside of the jar at the bottom and also on the top ¼ of the jars. These jars did not have the standard plastic lid. Those the lids were replaced with mason jar lids. The tops of the mason jars were also covered with felt as well. We also had Styrofoam molds shaped to fit the top of the peanut mason jars. Next Dr. He, our professor and supervisor, got dry ice and crushed it. We had a few sheets of tin foil. The last thing we got was either 100% or 200% alcohol. We began making our cloud chambers by cleaning out the mason jars and drying the insides. Afterwards Dr. He filled the jars with the alcohol to a level he felt would be necessary to make the chambers with. We gyrated the jars and allowed the felt insides to become saturated with the alcohol. Upon completed the saturation of the felt, we placed the foil over the lids and molded it to fit over the cover and top…...

...friends. It has been four years since I have seen any of them, but I have talked to one. Joanna McCarty. I call her a true friend unlike my other friends. Sure, they have done stuff for me. Sure, they have given me advice once in a while. Sure, they have kept me company. But no one can be compare to Joanna. She actually gave me advice and comforted me. I help her in return when she wanted it. I taught her how to draw. We talk on DA, Skype, Tumblr, and Facebook. We try keeping up with each other even though I am twice more busy then she is. I don’t quite know what job she is working or what college she is going to, but I do know she is one hell of an artist. I sighed and began to grin to myself. I remember how she uses to say how much she sucks at drawing, but she was really great at coloring. A few lessons and pushing confidence into her she became a better artist then me. She currently draws cute chibis as for adoptables. Once in a while she’ll post a chibi up there for me. To show me she is still supporting me and my reality and I’ll show her the same thing when I have time to draw, scan it, and color it. Midnight got up and jumped down from the couch and went to the litter box. I sat up slowly and then stood up to stretch. I look around in my tiny apartment.

...lives of thousands of people and shaped new laws regulating business.  All topics covered in this course, from product liability to civil rights, from intellectual property rights to antitrust and consumer protection, will all make the same point. My goal is not to instruct a basic business law course but rather to create a dialogue involving questions and issues that each of our respective businesses must navigate successfully if they are ultimately to maximize stakeholder value. We will do this during Week 1 by covering our two most important TCOs: A and I. These will be foundational for the term. As TCO A is our ethics TCO and TCO I is our international TCO, note that both of these TCOs will be important under and inside each of our topical TCOs (e.g., contracts, environmental law, employment law, etc.)   | | Business Ethics | | As we move through the course, each learned TCO should remain in the back of your mind. We will build on them while learning the law. As you will find, most of the TCO A ethical strategies include as a first question the following: Is the behavior illegal? A "yes" answer will (usually) lead you to decide automatically that the behavior is unethical, unless the law itself is unethical (as is sometimes the case). Therefore, as we learn what is and isn't legal, we will want to utilize that information in solving ethical dilemmas. When we move our businesses overseas or to Mexico or Canada, as many of our companies are doing, we will want......

Yes Men

...consumer, workers, and businesses. Briefly define the Yes Men, and discuss in what ways, if any, beliefs, attitudes, and values play into or relate to the Yes Men’s formation and tactic. The Yes Men consider themselves to be activist that exposes what they find to be the wrong doings of large companies. The Yes Men are Andy Bichlbaum and Mike Bonanno. They have developed a network of likeminded individuals that attempt to raise awareness about social issues that they consider to be a problem in society. They have impersonated corporate officials to give the media something they consider to be important to write about. They feel that they are helping society with their actions by exposing illegal or irresponsible activity that these large corporations are doing. They consider themselves crime fighters. Do you agree or disagree with the tactics of the Yes Men? What concepts from class and textbook readings thus far, particularly those in Chs. 3 and 4, support your position? While I find the hijinks of the Yes Men wildly entertaining I don’t really believe exposure by deception is necessarily the right way to go about it. Although I may not agree with their tactics they have certainly found a creative way to influence public opinion of the corporations they’ve managed to infiltrate with their message. They are attempting to change the attitudes of these companies by using the power of persuasion to change the way people perceive the company in question. What degree......

...into the field. My choices, whether be radio, television, cable, or multimedia, grow as fast as the technology in this digital age we live in. To be a successful manager— and this is increasing in the telecommunications field—a proper understanding of how peoples’ attitudes and actions shape their behavior within the organization is a necessity. The following paper will highlight core aspects of organizational behavior, how they connect within the context of organizational behavior—touching on key matters—and how the information from the assessments might apply in my development toward a future career. Additionally, the paper will reflect and highlight the results of the Self-Assessment and how they connect with my experiences in daily life. The paper will follow the order of the assessments in relation to the chapters they pertain to. All quotations from Essentials of Organizational Behavior by Stephen P. Robbins, 7th edition, 2003, will be indicated throughout this paper unless otherwise noted. Many themes involve themselves with organizational behavior. In the context of this course, my view of the central issues encompasses several aspects. Diversity, improving quality and productivity, empowering people, decision making, teamwork and communication are just a small sample of these themes. Increasingly, the workplace contains employees from many ethnicities and cultures. Workforce diversity “encompasses women, African Americans, Hispanic Saichaie......

...Yes or No Did communism threaten America’s internal security after World War II (WWII)? Some say yes, and some say no. In this article of Taking Sides John Earl Haynes and Harvey Klehr, both history professors, claim that during the “Venona Project” of WWII the code-breakers of the U.S. army revealed a troubling number of U.S. government officials who were passing on secret information on to the Soviet Union and completely spoiled American comforts (Issue Summary). One of the officials that were caught was Harry White. Being one of the most powerful officials in the U.S. Treasury Department, White warned the KGB on how the diplomatic strategy of America could be upset. Another official that was caught was Lauchlin Currie. Currie was President Franklin Roosevelt’s most trusted assistants. He told the KGB about the investigation that the FBI had started on one of the Soviets’ American agents, Gregory Silvermaster. After acquiring this information this made it easy for Silvermaster to get out of dodge of the FBI and continue spying. Also, during the Manhattan Project, Klus Fuchs and Theodore Hall, both physicists, and technician David Greenglass transferred the compound formula for extracting bomb-grade uranium from ordinary uranium, the plans for production facilities, and the engineering principles for the “implosion” technique, which made the use of a plutonium using atomic bomb possible (Haynes, Klehr). Haynes and Klehr stated that, “Americans worried that a communist......

Science Says There Are 6 Reasons People Say Yes.

...Science says there is 6 reasons people say yes! The Six Principles of Influence ( Six Weapons of Influence) were created by Robert Cialdini, Regents' Professor Emeritus of Psychology and Marketing at Arizona State University. Cialdini identified the six principles through experimental studies: The six principles are as follows: 1. Reciprocity As humans, we generally aim to return favors, pay back debts, and treat others as they treat us. According to the idea of reciprocity, this can lead us to feel obliged to offer concessions or discounts to others if they have offered them to us. One example of this concept was tested with Mints being handed out with the bill at restaurants. Tips increased with server giving more than three mints and telling the customer that for being great customers she gave them extra. Tips increased exponentially. 2. Commitment Cialdini says that we have a deep desire to be consistent. For this reason, once we've committed to something, we're then more inclined to go through with it. For instance, you'd probably be more likely to support a colleague's project proposal if you had shown interest when he first talked to you about his ideas. 3. Social Proof This principle relies on people's sense of "safety in numbers." If you have ever been in a hotel and read the sign suggesting reuse of towels. Hotels learned that by putting a statement saying how many guests reuse towels the number actually increases. “90% of hotel guests reuse......

...James Ronca Final Paper Wrestling is one of the oldest sports in the world. No one is sure who invented the sport but it was first implemented as a real sport in the first Olympics in the year 776 B.C. The origins of wrestling can be traced back 15,000 years through cave drawings in France; Babylonian and Egyptian relief's show wrestlers using most of the holds known to the present-day sport. More modern day wrestling has weight classes implemented so participants will wrestle people that weigh the same as them, thus starting a trend known in the wrestling world as cutting weight. Weight classes in wrestling were implemented in order to insure the optimal amount of fairness for each wrestler before they step out onto the mat. I believe that weight classes are positive to the sport but also negative. Positive in the fact that you don’t have a kid who weighs 103 wrestling someone who is 185, that just wouldn’t make sense. It makes it so everyone that goes out there are roughly the same weight so size doesn’t play a roll. But, this causes many issues as well. I know from experience the side effects of cutting weight. You feel weak, tired, and hungry; you get cotton mouth, and extremely aggravated over little things, everything pisses you off, it’s just an awful mood to be in. Cutting weight often is misconstrued and everyone believes that you just starve yourself to make weight. In some occasions this is true, but that is the wrong way to do it. There is a right way to......

Julie and Debbie have a strange relationship. It seems like Julie is relying on Debbie to take care of her as she did at first when Julie arrived to the city. Debbie always paid for Julie and taught her about life and men - from her own point of view.

They wish I'd leave. You know what kind of liability they face if you die while you're on status?” “Yes, I know.” “That's all they're worried about, you can tell. Always their liability-” Renee tuned out and returned her attention to the window, watching a contrail extrude itself across the sky. “Mrs. Norwood?” a nurse called. “Your husband's here.” Renee gave Mrs. Rivas another polite smile and left. 1b Carl signed his name yet another time, and finally the nurses took away the forms for processing. He remembered when he had brought Renee in to be admitted, and thought of all the stock questions at the first interview. He had answered them all stoically. “Yes, she's a professor of mathematics. You can find her in Who's Who.” “No, I'm in biology.” And: “I had left behind a box of slides that I needed.” “No, she couldn't have known.” And, just as expected: “Yes, I have. It was about twenty years ago, when I was a grad student.” “No, I tried jumping.” “No, Renee and I didn't know each other then.” And on and on.

Part of that Army value is trusting that all people have done their jobs and fulfilled their duty. Is reporting this breech of security showing a "distrust" in SFC Sharp and SGT Day? The fifth Army value is "Integrity". That means that I will not do or say anything that deceives others. If I agree with SGT Day, and do as he suggests, I am violating my personal beliefs to do what is right. 4. Consider other applicable moral principles. I can not violate my own personal moral principals. Whatever decision I make, I will have to live with. Is accepting SGT Day's suggestion being disloyal to my unit? Am I being disloyal to SFC Sharp?

Perhaps this is an opportunity for me to instruct SGT Day on proper procedure and help him learn what is the right thing to do. The last Army value is "Courage".

...Stuff I have too much stuff. Most people in America do. In fact, the poorer people are, the more stuff they seem to have. Hardly anyone is so poor that they can't afford a front yard full of old cars. It wasn't always this way. Stuff used to be rare and valuable. You can still see evidence of that if you look for it. For example, in my house in Cambridge, which was built in 1876, the bedrooms don't have closets. In those days people's stuff fit in a chest of drawers. Even as recently as a few decades ago there was a lot less stuff. When I look back at photos from the 1970s, I'm surprised how empty houses look. As a kid I had what I thought was a huge fleet of toy cars, but they'd be dwarfed by the number of toys my nephews have. All together my Matchboxes and Corgis took up about a third of the surface of my bed. In my nephews' rooms the bed is the only clear space. Stuff has gotten a lot cheaper, but our attitudes toward it haven't changed correspondingly. We overvalue stuff. That was a big problem for me when I had no money. I felt poor, and stuff seemed valuable, so almost instinctively I accumulated it. Friends would leave something behind when they moved, or I'd see something as I was walking down the street on trash night (beware of anything you find yourself describing as "perfectly good"), or I'd find something in almost new condition for a tenth its retail price at a garage sale. And pow, more stuff. In fact these free or nearly free things weren't......
