PART I
“THE SPARK”

I clasp the flask between my hands even though the warmth from the tea has long since leached into the frozen air. My muscles are clenched tight against the cold. If a pack of wild dogs were to appear at this moment, the odds of scaling a tree before they attacked are not in my favor. I should get up, move around, and work the stiffness from my limbs. But instead I sit, as motionless as the rock beneath me, while the dawn begins to lighten the woods. I can't fight the sun. I can only watch helplessly as it drags me into a day that I've been dreading for months. By noon they will all be at my new house in the Victor's Village. The reporters, the camera crews, even Effie Trinket, my old escort, will have made their way to District 12 from the Capitol. I wonder if Effie will still be wearing that silly pink wig, or if she'll be sporting some other unnatural color especially for the Victory Tour. There will be others waiting, too. A staff to cater to my every need on the long train trip. A prep team to beautify me for public appearances. My stylist and friend, Cinna, who designed the gorgeous outfits that first made the audience take notice of me in the Hunger Games. If it were up to me, I would try to forget the Hunger Games entirely. Never speak of them. Pretend they were nothing but a bad dream. But the Victory Tour makes that impossible. Strategically placed almost midway between the annual Games, it is the Capitol's way of…...

...Why people don't respond to alarm signals People often fail to respond quickly to fire alarm signals. A common example: In a hotel, a fire alarm sounds late at night. Only a handful of people actually dress and leave (often using the elevators). A few people call the front desk. Many people periodically poke their heads out their doors to see what's going on. But mostly, people simply wait for the alarm signal to stop. Eventually, the alarm either shuts off, or someone (hopefully) comes to tell them that there is a real emergency and they must leave. This problem has aggravated and perplexed fire safety professionals over the years. Some denounce the public for their stupidity in failing to recognize the potential danger indicated by a fire alarm signal. Their concern is valid: in many fire emergencies, a rapid response is critical to survival. But attributing the problem to public stupidity is inaccurate and of no value in correcting the problem. In reality, people are simply exhibiting natural tendencies. Why don't people respond to alarm systems? There are several reasons. In this essay, these reasons are divided into two main categories: Alarm signals as sources of information. Other reasons why people do and don't respond apart from the information-value of alarm signals. Alarm signals as a source of information. In order to understand why people fail to respond to alarm signals, we need to look at the information-value of alarm signals. By......

...to be facing. During those five precious minutes, someone's house is a blaze with fire. It is your duty to put that fire out, preserve as much as possible, and protect life. Do you think you could handle so much responsibility, pressure, and risk? I know I could. It is a dream of mine to become a firefighter in all sense of the word. I enjoy the thought of risk taking and even helping people, which is why I think that this profession would be just right for me. Ever since I was about 11 years old, and my house had caught fire, had I wanted to be a firefighter. Just watching all of those skilled firefighters mesmerized me. They had such precision and knew exactly what to do in what seemed every situation that would be thrown at them. I feel as though this is their personality and traits added to this accuracy at being so good at what they do. I also have quick reflexes, good stamina, and I tend to think of myself as a fast and logical thinking, just as they all were. I chose this career not only for my liking to it, but also because of the growth in the profession. Firefighting is a field that has potential for growth in the coming years, the education, requirements, and dedication are all equally important to this extremely dangerous, yet exciting job. Firefighting is one of the most dangerous jobs out in the occupation world today. Summed up as a whole, firefighters are trained to fight fires, rescue people in need and provide medical services for humans and animals. There......

Catching Fire Reflection

...HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE “The odds are never in our favor,” a statement written in the wall that startled the victors as they were headed to District 11. Also, it is the part of the movie that struck me most because it contradicts my opinion. I believe that fate is in their side. For me, as the people in each district wish themselves the hope of having a good fortune, they are also the ones responsible for making it happen. Though I disagreed with the thought, that line in the movie was true. Even if the tributes of each district made it to victory during the previous hunger games, they still ended up as losers. The reason behind losing even though they were declared as winners was that they showed an act of selfishness because there was no other choice. In the game, it’s either kill or be killed. They have to murder others for their own. Just like the District 12 tributes, Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark. Yes, they survived the 74th hunger games but did they really won? Were they happy with the fame and fortune they got from winning in exchange for the lives of their co-competitors? At some parts of the movie, losing was not only experienced by the tributes but also the people in each district. Indeed, I consider them losing at first because they were not able to fight against injustices. I can’t blame them because the ones who caused these injustices were the people in the Government. As I continued to watch the film, I was happy to see that some characters......

...http://www.firefighterclosecalls.com/news/fullstory/newsid/204329 Research Articles Two Albuquerque firefighters responded to a arson fire when one fell through the floor of the home. He said that upon arriving on scene they noted flames coming from the second story of the home and proceeded to engage the fire on the second story after making entry. firefighter Andes reports that he took one step onto the second floor when it started to give way but his partner Lt. Lang reached out and grabbed his strap to save him. This article demonstrates why it is important for fire fighters to always work in teams as well as why it is also vital to always check for floor stability before proceeding onto a fire floor on any multistory structure. http://www.firefighterclosecalls.com/news/fullstory/newsid/204186 In this article a tanker from a volunteer department in Readington New Jersey was overturned injuring a 54 year old veteran volunteer firefighter as well as a deputy chief. It does not state if they where responding to a call or not but does say that this is the second time in which this department has wrecked a fire truck in the last month. Both men where medevac'd from the scene with reported head injures. This is a prime example of why it is vital to drive safely and know what your different apparatuses are capable of. Tankers are always a risk due to water surge and should be handled with this in mind. Better to drive slower and get to the scene safely than to......

Catching Fire Essay

...Catching Fire Essay In many books, the title almost has a major place within the book or novel. In Catching Fire the title can be associated not only as a concrete part of the book, but also as a major catalyst to many themes within the novel. Unlike many other novels the title is more of an idea than physical objects in the book. Three major themes that the idea of catching fire can be associated with are: rebellion, appearance, and love. Not only in catching fire, but in the whole Hunger Games trilogy, rebellion is a major theme within the novels. Catching fire can be associated with the theme “rebellion” because the rebellion is waiting to start and just like a match, once something sparks it, it can grow into an inferno and cause devastation. The concept that something so large can be dangerous just by the motivation to be inspired causes Suzanne Collins to use the words catching fire as the background for this theme. President Snow feared that Katniss would be the spark the revolution needed to begin as he tells her “you have provided a spark which left unattended may grow into an inferno.” What Snow failed to realize was that the rebellion had already begun, but at this time it was just the spark that he said. By the end of the novel the rebellion had caught fire and began to destroy everything in its path. Catching fire is associated with the theme of appearance through the novel. The first time that it is used with this theme is the ceremony where......

...History Ancient Rome There was no public fire-fighting in the Roman Republic. Instead, private individuals would rely upon their slaves or supporters to take action. This action could involve razing nearby buildings to prevent the spread of fire as well as bucket brigades. The very wealthy Marcus Licinius Crassus was infamous for literal fire sales. He would buy burning buildings, and those adjacent to them at low prices, and rebuild them using his team of 500 slaves. However there is no mention of the men extinguishing the fires. There was not an organized fire-fighting force in ancient Rome until Augustus's era. United Kingdom Prior to the Great Fire of London in 1666, some parishes in the UK had begun to organise rudimentary firefighting. After much of London was destroyed, the first fire insurance was introduced by a man named Nicholas Barbon. To reduce the cost, Barbon formed his own Fire Brigade, and eventually there were many other such companies. By the start of the 1800s, those with insurance were given a badge or mark to attach to their properties, indicating that they were eligible to utilize the services of the fire brigade. Other buildings with no coverage or insurance with a different company were left to burn unless they were adjacent to an insured building in which case it was often in the insurance company's interest to prevent the fire spreading. In 1833, companies in London merged to form The London Fire Company Establishment. Steam powered......

...When we all started our carrers as firefighters wheatear we knew it or not we were all at the mercey of those more experienced at the station. While this typically what you would expect to see at the fire station it can definatily be a double edged sord. While rookie firefighters get the opputunity to be guided in the right the direction by the more seasoned firefighters the opposite is also true, and can lead the rookie down the wrong path. This can be attributed to a lot of reasons including: the seasoned firefighter has been taught the wrong path themselves, they may not have the patentece to guide a rookieor are have poor teaching skills, and of course they may just not care. Barring the last example(because we all know we work at a good station) the other examples can be detrimental to the new firefighter succeeding. A lot of what we do in the fire service can only be perfected through experience. Tring new ways to accomplish a small task is the firefighter way. Much of the basics of what we do in the fire service is learned at a fire school but is taught as general information with the understanding that each induvudal department, station and shft have their own way to handle fireground activities. This is a completely acceptable practice, it is part of the captains job to gage their crews skills abilities as well as have an understanding of their still alarm territory and target hazards. When a rookie firefighter first comes to the station sometimes it is easy......

...South Canyon Fire Disaster (DRAFT) Introduction The South Canyon, or sometimes referred to as the Storm King Mountain Fire, that occurred in July 1994 is an intriguing disaster to study. What makes the disaster so intriguing is that another fire which occurred in 1949 called the Mann Gulch Fire, killed 13 firefighters and yet forty-four years later the same mistakes were made at the South Canyon Fire leading to the death of fourteen more firefighters. When compared to each other, both fires have almost the exact same topographical features, weather phenomena, and sequence of events. Both fires were located inside box canyons, or “small ravine or canyon with steep walls on three sides allowing access or egress only through the mouth of the canyon” (Wikipedia) and located on a major river. Gusting winds up the mouth of the canyon contributed to the fire blowing up and increase in size in just a matter of moments. On both fires, the practice of downhill fire line construction was used down steep mountain sides which hampered the fire crews in escaping uphill when the fire began to overrun them. In this paper, I plan on examining the organizational, executive, and regulatory failures that led to the demise of the fourteen firefighters on the South Canyon Fire and to address the major question, “Are wildfire fighting fatalities inevitable ‘normal accidents’?” South Canyon Fire Event In 1994, Colorado experienced a year of extreme drought and in the summer months, long......

...FIRE, FIRE, Abstract Implementing a firewall is seldom a simple task. It must be carefully planned in order to meet all of the needs of a companies complicated network design. The design objectives depend on what problems are anticipated, what services to allow or deny, and what level of risk is acceptable. How to cover these objectives is a lot to consider; how much money is available or allowed in order to implement this design, how long does the administrator have to complete this design, and is the expertise level of knowledge available in order to correctly implement this design? The most daunting task of all; which firewall to implement? A firewall comes in all shapes, sizes, and specification. All are meant to make a network more secure, but where to start? Is it a software driven firewall or hardware bases firewall used? Which type of firewall; database, network based, host bases, or application bases? What are the differences between them, how they work or what they actually do? Will it do more harm than good? It can all be very confusing when trying to protect a network and figure out which firewall is best fit. All of these are very important questions that should be answered before starting the installation and implementation of a firewall. Hopefully the answer to these questions will become clear as firewalls are discussed further in this paper. Firewalls What is a firewall and how does it work?

Fighting Fire with Fire

...(Nate) Song Comparison Music Appreciation- 105 The song that I chose to do a comparison of is called Fire. It was originally written, performed, and recorded by Jimi Hendrix in 1967 and is on the first album by his group The Jimi Hendrix Experience. The song is two minutes and 47 seconds of pure Psychedelic rock or acid rock, as some called it. The song originally is in duple meter. It starts off with a lot of drumming on a drum set then afterwards there are the sweet melodic psychedelic sounds of Jimi’s electric guitar and voice. After that, there is a catchy bass guitar groove that comes in during the first chorus and enters in and out while back-up singers sing, “Let me stand next to your fire ”as Jimi sings the whole song and is on lead electric guitar. There are crescendos that lead up to Jimi’s awesome guitar solos throughout the whole song. The mood of the song is happy. The bass line is legato and the lead guitar part is staccato. The song for the most part is homophonic and has parts that sound polyphonic because he is singing while playing lead guitar. The band that made a cover of Fire is an awesome band called Red Hot Chili Peppers. They are an alternative and influential funk rock group that was made Los Angeles, California in 1983. They covered the song on their fourth album called Mother’s Milk, which was released on August 16th in 1989. Their version of Fire sounds the same except they took it from moderato to allegro and had more accelerandos and......

Very young and old aged percentages are low because of the inconvenience of interaction about the answer; on the other hand middle aged and lower middle aged who has been answered clearly and well defined. So, maximum interviewer selected such type of interviewee who can easily define that fire scenario which is very important us to analyze and calculate for our report. Sex Sex Frequency Percent male 52 83.9 Female 8 12.9 Total 60 100 Above table shows that there are 60 samples are taken where 52 are male and 8 are female on the contrary there percentages are 83.9 and 12.9 which means that male are dominated here. Male percentages are near six & half times larger than female. So when collecting the information in this section quantitative data is collected and avoids the qualitative data, as a result there is uneven distribution in frequencies.
