3. To calculate the total cost of operating these devices for one week, first you have to find the power rating in watts of your devices. After you find the power rating in kilowatt hour. To find this you divide the power rating in watts by 1000. After you find how much time you use this device and find the total of minutes and then you convert minutes to hours (divide by 60) Lastly you find the cost per kWh. The equation to find the cost per kWh is power x time x rate. You will record this for 5 days and then add all the cost per kWh and this is how you find the total cost for a week. To find the total cost of operating these devices for a year, you take the total cost of one week for each device and multiply that by 52 because there are 52 weeks in a year. (2016)
4. Referring to my own energy audit information, these are the ways I can reduce my families hydro/electricity bill. First of all, when I'm using the hair dryer, I should only blow dry my hair for less amount of time because I can leave the rest of my hair to air dry and this might reduce the cost because I am using less energy. The next way I can reduce energy is when I leave my room, I should turn off my room lights. I usually have a habit of leaving the lights on as I go from room to room. The last way I can reduce my families electricity bill is at night I should unplug my phone from my charger. Phones only take about one to two hours to charge but sometimes I forget to unplug it and it ends up charging all night.

...the message in the story. The waiting room can be a symbol of purgatory for some. “The doctor’s waiting room, which was very small was almost full when the Turpins entered and Mrs.Turpin, who was very large in her presence” (revelation 191) If O’connor would not have put in the story wouldn’t have as much meaning “it takes every word in the story to say what the meaning is.” (O’Connor 334) This critic being O’connor herself, implies it takes everything necessary to establish the meaning in the story. Without the waiting room Mrs.Turpin revelation would not have been a reality. The key to the waiting room is when Mary Grace throws the book at Mrs.Turpin, another example of symbolism. “The book struck her directly over her left eye.”(206) It is with this act that helps Mrs. Turpin achieve her revelation. The throwing of the book is seen as symbolism because that violent act opens the eyes of Mrs.Turpin. “the short story requires more drastic procedures then the novel because more has to be accomplished in less space.”(333) This critic feels this act of symbolism must be drastic enough because it will be the only thing capable of showing the error of her ways. It was essential that the book was thrown, Mrs.Turnpin being how full of herself as she was, because the violence was the only way it would be the only way to get her revelation. What Mrs.Turpin dialogue is key, without her smug talk there would be no story. She degrades many people in the story, and she......

Another Cinderella Story

...the story about Cinderella who starts out by being simple farm girl. And of course we also know the evil stepmother and stepsisters, and the fairy good mother. We also know about the ending where Cinderella gets the beautiful prince and they lived happily ever after. There is also another version of the story. Politically Correct Cinderella is the funnier and modern parody of the Traditional Cinderella story. Politically Correct Cinderella written by James Finn Garner in 1981. In this essay I’m going to analyze the Politically Correct Cinderella story, and then compare it to the traditional Cinderella story, and finally end it by relating to the concept of “political correctness”. The Politically Correct Cinderella has the main plot as the traditional Cinderella Story. It’s about Cinderella whose birthmother had died when Cinderella was just a child, and then her father married the evil stepmother, with the evil stepsisters. But this story is written in a different way. An example could be the language: when he writes woman he write it like this: “wommon or womyn” – in this case I believe it is to keep it more correctly. It is also to see it from a feminist point of view, which change the way we perceive the story. The fairy good person is a man here, which makes it a lot weirder for us, because the fairy good mother was one of the central characters in the story we became familiar with. Just as we are used to the fairy good person being a woman, for example in the story......

...the insecticides giving the poisonous effect of each. “Captan—a proven cancer causing and birth defects producing agent, Dinoseb—a highly toxic herbicide that has caused workers deaths, Methyl Bromide—a more potent mutagen than mustard gas and is highly poisonous and proven carinogen, Parathion and Phosdrin—are highly poisonous insecticids, similar to nerve gas” (Chavez par 16). Another example that Chavez uses is the Enionmental Protection Agency considers pesticide pollution its most urgent problem and noting that virtually everyone is exposed to pesticides reported by the New York Times (Chavez par. 5). Chavez knew that by naming the pesticides used in harvesting the grapes and defining what harm they do to the body people would join in on the protest to stop buying grapes. The knowledge Chavez had on the pesticides would make the truth more believable to the consumers. When consumers stop purchasing the grapes, farmers will be forced remove the harmful pesticides. Farmers will be forced to remove the pesticides because grapes make wine and wine is a large industry that continues to grow. Another example is the “global wine industry is expected to generate almost $292 billion in 2014, reports. At that point market volume should exceed 22.1 billion liters, representing a near 3.5 percent increase in five years. Still wine represents the leading market segment, accounting for almost 81 percent of the global wine market” (Douglas). Chavez wanted to change the conditions......

...Alvaro Saldana Professor Coroniti Writing and Communication July 25, 2014 Cinema Paradiso Cinema Paradiso is a movie to be felt. The film portrays the story of a boy named Salvatore “ToTo” di Vita, and the way he grows up with the story of the cinema from a town called Giancaldo in the province of Sicily. The boy bonds with a man named Alfredo who worked at the local theater, Alfredo teaches everything he knows to Salvatore until one day Alfredo has an accident and goes blind. Salvatore later fall’s in love with Elena and soon has to leave his town in order to follow his career. He returns to Giancaldo 30 years later in order to learn the lesson of letting go. The score is very beautiful and very touching throughout the film and it depicts the emotions going on very accurately. It was played during the shooting of the film, which I think makes all the difference for the actors in really feeling every scene. There was a lot of inspiration and artistry during the making of this film. From the beginning of the movie, we get to know and fall for little Salvatore and that reminds us of how we were when we were little kids. From then on we start to feel related to him and how he grows up. There are lots of emotions all throughout the film because he goes through every stage of life with the cinema at his side and how the cinema also changes. It shows you how at first even kisses were......

They sit in the mild night a bit longer before the bartender comes out to smoke a cigarette. At this point he, the he of the story, not the bartender, is telling his friend a story. The bartender interjects, “I couldn’t help but overhear, but that’s awesome.” It was a story about smoking. Smokers love each other- they’re a dying breed. Then the bartender tells them that the patio is closed, but if that they want to stay outside for a bit that’s fine- they’re not loud. He remembers that that’s exactly what another bartender had told him and his date back then. He lights a cigarette. Once he’s done smoking they move inside. They get another round and chat some more. About dating. She’s currently in a relationship that sounds as messy as they tend to be. He hams up a story about a recent date, after the recent love, not mentioning that his heart is in the process of breaking. Then her friend calls- who just got broken up with tonight. She takes the call, telling her friend how much better she is than her now ex. In his mind, he can’t help but go right back to work- he’s revising all the words of his old friend in order to squeeze another inch of effectiveness out of them. “Don’t say ‘he doesn’t deserve you’, say that ‘he’s not worth your time’. The ‘he doesn’t deserve you’ line focuses on him, not your friend.” He doesn’t give this advice, thankfully. Instead he......

...nature in human beings. The two novels were written in different eras and as a result of different circumstances which in one way or another affected the philosophy of both of the writers. Lord of the Flies is an English novel written by William Golding in 1954. The book was written after the World War II, however, the events tell the story of English boys evacuated by a plane to safety after threats of an atomic bomb during the war. The crisis in the novel begins when this group of boys find themselves all alone on a deserted island after their plane crashes with no adults to take care of them. The boys, who supposedly, come from a sophisticated background try at first to manage their lives on the island by setting rules. They even choose a leader by voting, which is a sign of democracy. But after a while, the rebellious nature of some of the boys leads the whole group to drop their civilised nature and instead adopt savagery behaviors in order to survive. The savage behaviors develop from killing pigs to killing each other without any feeling of guilt. The novel, as mentioned before, highlights the evil nature in human beings that needs only the right chance to surface and overwhelm the mask of civilisation. The second novel is Blindness. This book was written by the Protégées writer Jose Saramgo and was published in 1995. The novel tells the story of a city that is hit by a sudden epidemic of white blindness. Blindness does not affect everyone at the same time. It......

The car had a mushroomy smell, as if, unattended for the day, something might have started growing in the upholstery seams. It was this heat; so late in September. But Pia kept the windows up; it felt safer like that. As she circled the car park, Pia caught the measured voice of the Radio 4 newsreader. “Today, scientists across the world are facing a revolution in physics. Neutrinos – ghostly subatomic particles, which pass through our bodies all the time – have broken the universe’s fundamental speed limit: the speed of light.” The story continued as she queued for the exit with all the other lecturers in their little cars. The newsreader kept on using the word ghostly, which Pia found odd, since it seemed to suggest a life, a death, and a botched resurrection – a metaphor she didn’t think scientists would like. She wondered how many of these particles had ghosted through her this morning, as she had shovelled the coffee into the cafetière, broken the eggs into the warming pan, pegged the laundry to the clothesline. How quickly, she wondered, did they whizz through hair, scalp, cranial vault, brain tissue? And she wondered, too, if their course might be slowed by the cloudy melancholia that had descended on her today, on the morning of her fortieth birthday. Free of the car-park, Pia executed her Fiat Punto through a cute right turn and headed...

Is Evolution Just Another Story Argumentative Essay

...Students Name Instructor Course Date Is evolution just another story? Evolution vs creationism Ever since the British naturalist Charles Darwin published his ground breaking theory The Origin of Species by Natural Selection in 1859, there has always been this argument of whether to believe in evolution or in creationism. On one hand, evolution narrates the story of emergence of life as to result from the unlikely reactions of several chemicals that existed about 3 billion years ago at a time when the earth was just a young planet. These chemicals would go on to form a self-replicating protein molecule (Dyson 13) that somehow and despite all the odds went on to form the genesis of all living things- plants, animals, the dead and the living. For billions of years a process of gradual selection called natural selection by Darwin, that only serves the best or the most fit to survive the terms of the environment has been and is constantly in work shaping the species of today and for the prolonged period that it has been in existence led to the emergence of different forms including as it were humans (Mitchell, Sherman and Tehon 27). Accordingly all livings are but relatives of each other and have descended from one single source. The alternative to evolution is creationism a theory which purports that all that we can see, touch and even what everything is was a product of design by a superpower and a super mind called God (Dyson 45). The world in the eyes of creationists......

Another Me?

...Another Me Cloning. Kind of cool? Kind of scary? Most things in life are. There's always been the thoughts of 'what-if-there's-another-me' throughout history. Well, what else is there to say but that cloning is already here? Many people are familiar with the story of 'Dolly' the cloned Finn Dorset sheep born from a Scottish Blackface mother; but are perhaps unaware that the process has been tried on multiple other animals. The most recent miracle occurring in Japan that resulted in a mouse being cloned from nothing but a drop of blood (2013, June 28). It doesn't stop there though. There are studies and experiments being done in cloning stem cells, blood and even organs; it's a very wide field to dive into. So, pop quiz here. What blood type is in high demand and very low in supply? All of them! Despite all of the medical advances the world needs so much more help with supply and demand. Now, what if one single blood cell could be taken and cloning could provide an unlimited amount of blood for any required transfusions? No need for donors, no risk of getting the wrong blood type. This may be closer than anyone thinks as red blood cells have already been produced by scientists at Advanced Cell Technology in Worcester, Massachusetts, the University of Illinois at Chicago and the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota from stem cells (2008, August 19). They reported that the cloned blood cells acted just like natural blood cells and there's possibility of producing them on a...

Another Language

...Summery: The short story “ Another Language “ by Craig Cliff, starts with an introduction of the main character, a seven-year-old boy named James. He is living in New Zealand with his Mother, Father and his brother Daniel. Every Saturday James is visiting his grandparent, Baba and Dedo. James decides to find out why Dedo always is sad and quiet. When he asks his grandfather, James is introduced to the expression ‘stuttering’. Dedo tells James, that he stutters when he speaks the language Serbian, and that’s the reason for his move to New Zealand. James finds his grandfathers words unreliable; therefore he investigates the matter by himself, by hanging out with Marcus Collins. - The only associate James knows with stuttering-problems. At a visit in the grandparents’ house, James tells his grandfather about Marcus and the stuttering that only appears when he talks. Dedo seemed uninterested, which is frustrating for James. When James talks with his father about the problem, he finds out the Dedo used the stuttering, as an excused for not talking about his past. * Characterization James is a bright seven-year-old boy.

...1. The Gift of the Magi "The Gift of the Magi" is a short story written by O. Henry (a pen name for William Sydney Porter), about a young married couple and how they deal with the challenge of buying secret Christmas gifts for each other with very little money. As a sentimental story with a moral lesson about gift-giving, it has been a popular one for adaptation, especially for presentation during the Christmas season. The plot and its "twist ending" are well-known, and the ending is generally considered an example of situational irony. It was allegedly written at Pete's Tavern[2][3] on Irving Place in New York City. Plot Mr. James Dillingham Young ("Jim") and his wife, Della, are a couple living in a modest flat. They each have one possession in which they take pride: Della's beautiful long, flowing hair and Jim's gold watch, which had belonged to his father and grandfather. On Christmas Eve, with only $1.87 in hand, and desperate to find a gift for Jim, Della sells her hair for $20, and eventually finds a platinum fob chain for Jim's watch for $21. Happy to have found the perfect gift at last, she runs home and begins to prepare dinner. When Jim comes home, he looks at Della with an expression “that she could not read, and it terrified her.” Della then admits to Jim that she sold her hair to buy him his present. Jim gives Della her present — an array of expensive combs for her hair (referred to as “The Combs”). Della then shows Jim the chain she bought for him,......

Another Chance

...reach out and bless them with another chance. These are the cases where the involved can live through a religious experience and have the opportunity to save what they’ve previously ruined. Gerard is a handsome man from New York, who is approximately 40 years old. The turning point in the story is when Gerard meets Laurel coincidently after he sees her through a shop window. Gerard and Laurel are former partners, but the relationship ended when Gerard had to proclaim that he had made another woman pregnant while they were still dating. Gerard has Lucy with Issy, and after Issy moves to Los Angeles to fulfill her dreams about being a Hollywood actress, Gerard takes the responsibility of raising Lucy on his own. Four years after Issy went to Los Angeles she was found dead in a pool, possibly after a suicide as she had taken her time to write Gerard’s name as her next of kin. Gerard lives what could be conceived as a boring and regrettable life, with the exception of his daughter; Lucy. Lucy is Gerard’s light of the day. “Gerard feels a stabbing love for his daughter” [l.18], “She’s wonderful, just wonderful” [l.78], “I love you” [l.165]; in this short story we’re constantly reminded of Gerard’s endless love for his daughter, and it is clear that she is the light of his seemingly else uninteresting life. We, as readers, are never told which profession Gerard is in, nothing about his parents or childhood so none of it must important or interesting. Another reason that one can......

In the meantime, someone sent me a beautiful and haunting poem. Enjoy. Another Christmas, Another year ending; A year of pain and loss and bewilderment, Of beauty and fear, With a little love to make us go on struggling, A little joy to make it worth the struggle. Another Christmas, Another dream over. Do we dare to remember last year And the years before? So much is gone, so many memories, How can we stop what remains from becoming a shadow? Another Christmas, Another pause in the fighting. Can the pain that we give to others And the pain that we cause for ourselves Really be laid to rest by a Christmas card Or a sprig of mistletoe? Are we not as afraid of dying on Christmas Day? Another Christmas, Another pause for reflection: The morning I walked out alone in the cold golden sunlight, The evening I loved as was loved amid laughter and music, The afternoon of firelight and peace with my dream-shapes about me. Another Christmas, Another year beginning. Perhaps this year will see the end of us, Perhaps an indifferent stab will finally sever the tightrope on which we struggle. Do we dare to hope for a new beginning, A new trust, a new wisdom, a new love? (excerpts of a poem by Alison......
