Bill Nye the Science Guy

Back then when everything was so very tall, so much that all the cookies I wanted were always out of my reach, I hardly had anything to do in my life. I guess my mom was too correct when she said all I needed to do was grow up and be healthy; the most fun thing I remember myself doing is play around with those buttons on the television that my dad never seemed to touch. Of course, my actions resulted in the addiction to television that I have at this moment, but I’m thankful for my past self. If it wasn’t for my kid-self, I wouldn’t have found Bill Nye the Science Guy.

When the playful music started in the introduction, I found myself liking the flying gewgaws and things (most of which were supposedly science-related), and the floating head that spun around with a smile. After the 5th occurrence of the name Bill, I started singing along, even in the sections that didn’t involve any lyrics. It was clearly a cleverly designed mind control scheme; I knew I was going to be compelled to see another episode later. Nevertheless, I simply had to continue watching.

As soon as the theme song finished, there were scientists who talked about the topic for the day. I was filled with hope that I could be a scientist too because I could relate to those kids on the show. Then the man himself exploded out of the corner of the screen and started wildly talking about whatever he was talking about. I figured I was supposed to be excited, because he was talking loudly and there were words flying all over the television screen. I laughed like a little child, though I can’t imagine how else I would have laughed.

Bill Nye flew like an albatross, the kids created lava out of ordinary chemicals, and I sat amazed. There was no stopping the man and his crew of little geniuses; with science by their side, they could make dense liquids sink below…...

Negative Effects of Rh Bill

...THE NEGATIVE EFFECTS OF REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH BILL The Philippines is facing again a very serious issue that affects moral values and its culture.  This is really a very serious issue and could really change the life of every Filipino, Issue pertaining to Reproductive Health Bill. Many Filipinos are very naive about this and most probably has no idea of what possible effects that could destroy our true Filipino morality with the concern of reproduction and sex.  Religious groups and organizations opposed this bill, and so with the few concervative Filipinos, but for those whose minds were twisted by only on politics and business, they thought that to reduce poverty is through population control.  Believing that the country's resources can now be segregated evenly to the country's population.  Later in our discussion we will talk about the future effects of this bill.  Here is a very strong opposing statement to the Bill by one of the top politicians in the country, Francisco S. Tatad - "THE REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH bill in the House of Representatives is being presented as a health bill and an antipoverty bill at the same time. It is neither. It is not what its authors say it is; it is everything they say it is not. It is an ideological attack on human life, the family, and our social and cultural values. The bill rests on a flawed premise; it is unnecessary, unconstitutional, oppressive of religious belief and destructive of public morals and family values. Its enactment into......

...Bill Davis Davis 1 Professor ENG 111 15 September 2010 Not Your Typical Fast Food Restaurant When you first look think of McDonald’s, you probably think of just a place to pick up a quick, cheep meal. In some cases, this is true. McDonalds is one of the most widely known and popular fast food restaurants around the world. It may not be a place for a romantic date, but there are not too many places you can go have a dinner with your family with the bill coming out to be under twenty dollars. Sure the food may be unhealthy, but it is the cheapest and most efficient route to satisfying your appetite. This may be why McDonald’s has become such a powerful food chain. But after visiting I realized the many different features that make this restaurant so attracting to people. Around lunchtime at noon, I walked across the parking lot, I noticed the drive through was packed with people just waiting to get their meals and get on the road. So I walked inside the doors of the McDonald’s, passed the cashier, and took a seat in one of the booths in the dining area. The booths were big and comfortable and they were all along walls of the dining area. This area was designated for people that wanted to sit down and enjoy their meals. People are spread out around the tables and booths far enough to where they are not invading other peoples conversations. ...

Five Guys

...Business October 28, 2012 Professor Rhonda Evans Strayer University Describe how Five Guys’ philosophy sets it apart from other fast food chains.       Five Guy’s philosophy sets apart from other fast food chains because of their ideal burgers.   “Five Guys goal is to sell the best quality burgers possible.  To sell the best burgers possible they focus on quality, service, and cleanliness”. (Elan, 2007)   When a customer leaves Five Guys the aim is for them to really find the products and services irresistible.  The high quality food does all the talking.   Another way they differ from other food chains is they don’t invest a lot into advertising.   York (2009) points out that Five Guys’ invest in an intensive secret shopper program where restaurant crew members can earn additional pay by getting high scores from secret shoppers.   Also, a wide variety of topping choices for their burgers is offered. Welch (2010) explains how they “prepare their fries by soaking them in water so that when the fries are pre-fried, the water boils forcing steam out of the fry”. While visiting Five Guy’s Burgers and fries for the first time back in 2003, during a brief conversation with the friendly cashier, I was amazed to find out that they use coolers instead of freezers. The truth is, I had never heard of that being done before in a restaurant. Another thought that I have that makes Five Guys’ different from other food chains is the way they execute the processing of the orders.  ......

...ECPSC- 2013 CURRENT AFFAIRS HANDOUT NO 13 LOKPAL BILL 1. Background. (a) The Administrative Reforms Commission (ARC) while recommending the constitution of Lokpal was convinced that such an institution was justified not only for removing the sense of injustice from the minds of adversely affected citizens but also necessary to instill public confidence in the efficiency of the administrative machinery. Following this, the Lokpal Bill was for the first time presented during the fourth Lok Sabha in 1968, and was passed there in 1969. However, while it was pending in the Rajya Sabha, the Lok Sabha was dissolved, and so the bill was not passed at that time. (b) The bill was revived in 1971, 1977, 1985, 1989, 1996, 1998, 2001, 2005, 2008 most recently in 2011. Each time, after the bill was introduced to the house, it was referred to some committee for improvements a joint committee of parliament, or a departmental standing committee of the Home Ministry, and before the government could take a final stand on the issue, the house was dissolved. Several flaws have been cited in the recent draft of the Lokpal Bill. Meanwhile the activists of India Against Corruption (IAC) have prepared a draft for the bill called Jan Lokpal Bill. 2. Composition of Lokpal. The Lokpal will be a three member body with a chairperson who is or was a chief justice or Supreme Court judge, and two members who are or have been high courts judges or chief justices.

That Guy

...That Guy: Hate at First Sight by Roanne Marie A. Orendain IV-Ampere It’s already been three years since I first met that guy. That guy who always love to make fun of me, that guy that always provokes me, that guy that can throws stuffs at my precious face, the one that I gave an endearment of “ATOL” (snail), in short that guy is a good-for-nothing schoolmate of mine that turns to be my first love. Yes, you read it right that guy that I hate the most turned to be my first love. I think love at first sight does not suit our story it must be hate at first sight. Our story begins with a little chat on facebook at first I thought that guy was cool, friendly and cute but those ideas are all wrong, because when our souls met at the path way after my biology subject that guy bumps me without any reason, then that guy throw a wrapper of candy at my face and he said some stuff that never meant to be told. That guy made me boil, so without any second thought I kick his front. I left him there kneeling, hurting and cussing me to death. I would not do that if he remains silent, but his mouth is unstoppable so I do that thing to make him stop from talking nonsense and make fun on my crushlife. I hate him because his so talkative and that guy hate me because I’s so impulsive and I guess our feelings are mutual we both hate each other because of what happened. Who would have known that I can make friends with that jerk? Without noticing we get closer and closer to the point that we......

...society was traditionally extremely important. It is an undeniable fact that successful leaders contributed to the general progress of society even though not all of their actions were good. Nevertheless, regardless the actions of a leader, he/she stimulates his surrounding to certain actions or even counter-actions which inevitably lead the group or the entire society to progress. At the same time, it is necessary to underline that the notion of leadership is quite large and may be applied to different spheres though, in principle, the concept of leadership remains unchanged and does not really depends on the field where it is applied. In other words, leaders are present in all fields, including not only politics, but also economy, science, technologies, culture, etc. Obviously, leadership is equally important to all spheres. This is why it is possible to speak about the significance and the role of a personality of leaders in history. Basically, this does not necessarily mean the interpretation of the role of a leader in terms of the world history, but it rather implies his/her significant to the epoch and his/her influence on the surrounding people. What is more important is the fact that leaders possess a great power to influence people, fully reveal their potential and realize their greatest dreams. This means that leaders can realize themselves but they can also stimulate other people to fully reveal their talents and realize their potential. Obviously,......

Science for Everyday Life

...Julia DeWitt SC250-05: Science for Everyday Life Unit 9 Assignment August 05, 2014 When I hear the word “scientist” there are multiple things that run through my thoughts. I picture someone in a lab coat trying to discover a cure to a disease like cancer or the next plague that comes along. There is this image of dry ice coming out of test tubes and beakers surrounding them. Maybe even a bunch of stressed out yuppie looking guys who had way too much coffee, desperately trying to find the vaccine to stop the zombie apocalypse. I also picture Beaker from the Muppet show. He did a wonderful job forming an image of what a scientist probably was to me as a child. He was insecure and he made a mess. My cousin is a scientist so then there is an image of this very stern but sarcastic guy testing and testing and retesting. That image sounds so boring but I’m grateful there are brilliant minds like him out there. Scientist come in many different forms. They study and discover many different things. Over time there have been many types of scientist and they weren’t all wearing lab coats. Leonardo da Vinci was one I found interesting due to my love of art. He combined art and science in his sketches. He has amazing futuristic designs and even envisioned flight. Sadly he was a chronic procrastinator and had frequent disasters with his experiments of new techniques (Leonadoda-Vinci). Galileo Galilei was an Italian scientist who developed the telescopes and started to......

...except for Dan McCormick. The reason he survived the crash was because he had an immunity to electricity because of his carnival act. When Dr. Lawrence questioned Dan about it, Dan says his tricks are all just a bunch of hog wash. This is an example of rhetoric because Dan is persuading himself to believe that it wasn’t his immunity to electricity that saved him because he didn’t want to feel bad for surviving when all those other people died. He was mentally persuading himself. Ignorance is bliss. Another form of rhetoric was Dan’s character. He had the personality of a knock around guy who was very likable because he wanted to do right. He could be called an “aw, shucks” kind of guy. The characters in the movie and the audience as well were persuaded by Dan’s personality to believe he was a good man. Rigas was a whole different story. He was a different kind of man. Rigas could be pegged as a bad guy right off the bat. His voice, his character, and his actions all persuaded the other characters and the audience that he was spiteful and suspicious. This was also a form of rheotoric because of the persuasion Rigas’s character to others. Rigas also physically persuaded Dan to murder. Rigas done an experiment on Dan that physically and mentally persuaded him to follow the commands of Rigas and to kill Dr. Lawrence. Dan was turned into a mad man and was forcefully persuaded to be a slave to Rigas. Again, this is a form of rhetoric because of the persuasion even though Dan wasn’t......

Are Science and Religion at Odds

...Garrett Evans Online English Essay Final Draft In a world that values knowledge so dearly, and bases judgment off of tangible evidence, Christians often come under fire for having faith in the supernatural. The scientific community and religious people have disagreed for centuries, but steps are being taken towards the integration of the two fields. Science and religion may finally not be at odds anymore. Instead of using science to disprove God, it should be used to grow closer to Him. God gave humanity a curious nature, and it should be used to pursue Him and understand the world He created. We now live in the era of information and science, and we must open our belief systems to these things. Science, by definition, is systematic knowledge of the physical or material world gained through observation and experimentation ( Religion and science are both ways in which we try to understand the world we live in, “but science is a way of knowing that differs from other ways in its dependence on empirical evidence and testable explanations” (Evolution Resources…). If the scientific method, the process by which these observations are made and evidence is collected, is the foundation for the worldview that to understand the universe, one must look only at the universe. On the other hand, religious people use supernatural entities to explain natural occurrences in this world. From this perspective, complex natural occurrences, such as the stars, point......

Sikkerhedspolitik Med Nye Poler

...Sikkerhedspolitik med nye poler Indledning: Det internationale system var under den kolde krig et stabilt system præget af to dominerende magter, og med staterne som de primære, og i mange sammenhænge de eneste aktører. Efter den kolde krigs ophør har kloden bevæget sig mod et mere labilt system, der trods amerikanske dominans på det militære område, er præget af både statslige og ikke-statslige aktører, samt ændrede magtforhold mellem staterne. Altså et system der for en umiddelbar betragtning en mere multipolær struktur. Samtidig er international politik præget af både et stadig tættere samarbejde mellem staterne via globalisering og øget konkurrence om verdens ressourcer. Hertil kommer nye former for sikkerhedstrusler som terrorisme og klimaforandringer. Underspørgsmål: 1. Redegør for hvordan det internationale system og dets magtstrukturi, har ændret sig siden den kolde krig. Forklar herunder hvordan Vestens sikkerhedspolitiske situation har ændret sig. 2. Sammenlign de opfattelser af USA’s rolle i verden, som kommer til udtryk i bilag C1, bilag C2 og bilag C3. I besvarelsen skal du inddrage teori om international politik. 3. Diskuter, i hvor høj grad USA har mulighed for at bevare sin status som unipol i det internationale system. Besvarelsen skal tage udgangspunkt i bilag bilag C4 og inddrage de øvrige bilag. Angiv kilde ved anvendelse af supplerende materiale. Redegørelse: Det internationale system og dets magtstrukturi, har ændret sig meget......

...More views against the RH bill are pouring in. Apparently they have not been considered by the Lower House Committee before the bill was endorsed to the entire body for approval in the plenary session. Hence for the enlightenment of our legislators and the entire citizenry, presented here are some more of these views, one of them coming from a lawyer Atty. Rex A. Salvilla who clearly and ably refutes some stand of the bill’s advocates: “First, the advocates say that the opponents of RH bill are anti-poor for allowing population explosion. This is not true because the opponents, like the advocates are also for population control. Both differ only on the method of control – the advocates thru condom which cost money while the opponents thru natural family planning which costs not a single centavo but only mere discipline on the part of the spouses So, who is anti-poor? It is the advocates. Second, the advocates say that they are pro-choice. This is not also true. The draft bill contains a penal clause punishing by imprisonment and/or fine those obstructing the use of condoms and promoting family planning. Is this not like tying a person to a post and telling him, “You are free”? So, where is “pro-choice” here? In fact, the bill is a “no-choice” piece. Third, the advocates say that the Pope supports condom use. This is interpreting the Pontiff out of context. The Pope simply provided an exception in the same way that God has also provided exceptions to His own commandments.......
