Yosiah Prof. E Science and Human Values Within the past century and a half concentrated greenhouse gas has had an enormous effect on the polar ice caps. The melting of these ice caps cause fresh water to be added to the north Atlantic current in large amounts triggering an ice age. When this effect takes place over time it can disrupt our warm climate and cause more frequent and more dangerous natural disasters, mostly our warm climate. Hurricane Katrina is only a glimpse of what will happen on a larger scale if nothing is done to reciprocate it. Unfortunately oil profiting is the culprit, burning large amount of fossil fuels, and pollution degenerates our fragile climate globally also. We have become so dependent on it; alternatives must be made available and educated on a world wide scale. America and China could be the automobile that puts everything in motion. Once they start it as forerunners the world will follow suit. The day After tomorrow shows evidence such as polar caps and great visual affects of ice caps the size of small states breaking off and melting into the north Atlantic current. Meetings were held at the U.N. to create awareness and begin preventative measures necessary for future generations. The results were meet with denial and financial strains it could cause. Commencing the meeting signs shortly started to become evident. At the headland the center in Scotland, were observatory research is conducted, they noticed a boy has a temperature drop of 14 degrees. At first it was assumed as a malfunction, but then the next day a second signaled the same thing off coast of Greenland. These signs are as remote as seeing Elvis. Then the third one suddenly in Japan had hail the size of small softballs and was falling from the sky. In Mexico hurricanes that have never been experienced anywhere tore through it like scissors on paper. A…...

The After

...The After- life is an area of human consciousness we all enter upon leaving the physical world at physical death. Throughout history we’ve questioned if there is a life after death. Along the way, our religions and various philosophers offered beliefs and opinion to answer this commonly asked question. However, many of the answers contradict each other making it hard to figure out. “Belief in life after death is a source of personal security, optimism, and spiritual betterment”. Nothing offers more courage than the confidence that there is a better life for those who use the present to prepare for eternity. While some believe it’s impossible to know whether there is life after death, belief in immortality is a timeless phenomenon. Through the years there have been many philosophers that do not believe in life after death. Among them is David Hume. David Hume was a British imperialist to the extreme. He only believed in what he could see. He felt that if you can’t see your soul or god then they must not exist. The same holds true for the afterlife, or heaven. He felt that when you died that was it, your life was over and there was nothing more. Buddhist’s also do not believe in life after death meaning heaven. Buddhist believes that when one dies he is reborn again and this continues until the person reaches Nirvana. “The properly ultimate goal for man, no matter how much he may line his way through birth-death by flower beds of temporary betterment or pleasure, is to......

After Earth

...Scott Bushard Nolan Belk ENG 111-001 Movie Review 03 October 2013 After Earth “Then it dawned on me, Fear is not real. The only place fear can exist is in our thoughts of the future, it is a product of our imagination, causing us to fear things that do not at present and may not ever exist, that is near insanity. Now do not misunderstand me, Danger is very real, but fear is a choice. We are all telling ourselves a story, and that day, mine changed.” That is a quote from Cypher (Will Smith) talking to his son Kitai (Jaden Smith) after their crash landing on the planet where the ship broke in two, leaving the only working beacon in the tail of the ship some 100 kilometers away from them, on earth 1000 years after they have left it. "After Earth" is a lovely surprise. This film from producer-costar Will Smith and director M. Night Shyamalan, about a father and son marooned on a hostile future earth, is a moral tale disguised as a sci-fi blockbuster. It's no classic, but it's a special movie: spectacular and wise. Says Matt Zoller Sietz from RogerEbert.com If you’re looking for an action adventure, or a pure Sci-Fi you might be disappointed as the storyline isn’t after that. If you notice little backdrop details about the scenes of the movie and love an interesting storyline, that’s where this movie comes through very strong. It isn’t just about a father and son being shipwrecked on a planet, or even about them bonding together even though it does cover that......

Day to Day Effects

...Extra Credit 1 Every day, every minute, in fact every second, we are interacting and building connections with everything we see and do. For this assignment, I want to focus on my encounter with Starbucks staff. I probably am one of the biggest Starbucks fanatic anyone will every encounter. I love the thrill of going to Starbucks, and anticipating and thinking about what my new Starbucks concoction will be. Reflecting upon my Starbucks experiences, I have come to a conclusion of whether we know it or not, our unintended communications turn into a relationships that we fail to see. To test my thinking and prove it valid, I went to the Starbucks that I have been going to for years now. Here goes my thoughts, “What do I order? What am I feeling today? What is the new drink that came out?”. As I walked in, I examined the same feeling of thrill and excitement that rushes upon me. As I wait in the long, almost endless lines at Starbucks, I especially examine other people’s orders and get inspired for my order. As the line lessens, I am finally able to reach upon my decision of my order. Instantly, the woman taking my order my order found me quit familiar and said, “hello, how’s your day today? Would you like chai latte or caramel macchiato?” and I found it surprising on how she knew exactly what I want. Reflecting upon the situation, I realize how going to Starbucks often, I run into the same people, the same staff and essentially built a relationship that we don’t realize.......

3d Printing Today and Tomorow

...ordered all open source instructions to be removed from the internet. However officials fear that the problem will be that just like music, movies, programs, and other online files that are shared it will not keep these plans out of the hands of people who really want to get them. An exciting industry that this technology is changing is the medical and dental field. Dentist are already using this tech to print dentures using x-rays and scans to perfectly match the patience. In the medical field they have successfully printed bone fragments, more specifically part of a skull and a human jaw bone. Doctors have used these items in patents. In China they have developed a printer that uses human cells. This was made with the intent to one day print human replacement organs. The thought behind this is they would be able to print an organ using your DNA, therefore your body would not reject it, and you would not have to wait as long for a transplant. Doctors have successfully printed a working heart valve, and they expect the FDA to approve usage of these within the next year. The current method is to use heart valves from pigs, and those only have a 3year lifespan, again by using your cells and DNA to make these parts your body will accept them and they will last longer. I was surprised to hear that this tech is being used in the fashion industry. Designers are using this to print wild looking clothes, shoes, head ware, and jewelry. As printers become more common in our......

A Day of Nothing and a Day of Activity

...A Day of Nothing and a Day of Activity From what I can recall, I did nothing of particular interest on February 8, so I shall elect to skip talking about it. To make up for the lack, I shall write an excruciatingly long entry for today. As is typical of an exchange student at Kansai Gaidai, I awoke only to begin my journey over to my Japanese class. In class, we played 'Who's Pen Is This?' in order to practice our previously learned grammar lesson. Next, we planned a pretend trip in order to practice another grammar lesson. Finally, we learned a new grammar point before departing. My next activity was to wait 40 minutes so that I could meat Saki and Chiaki again for lunch. This time, I brought my laptop along so that I could share photographs from back home. While waiting, I was joined by Wayne, a Chinese student who I had previously met, and Keisuke. At first, Keisuke swore that Wayne was a Japanese person, but after some effort to convince him otherwise, he believed that he was not. Come 11:30, I took my leave from the boys to join the girls in the cafeteria. Since it was rainy and drab awful outside today, Saki and Chiaki were waiting inside the cafeteria instead of the outside area where they usually wait. After getting food, we ate and talked some. Once finishing, we made our way to the CIE lounge so I could plug in my laptop and begin the show. A wise move plugging it in, I might add, as the presentation lasted about four hours. I began by showing pictures of my......

After the Fact

...the real information. However if we were to change we can use the new information, meaning we can research about the event and see if we can use that information to know that something else could have possibly happened. As people say seeing believing so this means you cant really believe everything that is written down in history. In that book “After the fact” there are many historical events that took place which were quite odd to come to the conclusion of. History in the text is explained as “History is what happened in the past. That statement is the everyday view of the matter. It supposes that historians must return to the past through the surviving records and bring it back to the present to display as what really happened.” This quote explains that the information that the historians have today is not enough to address what has really happened in the past. In order to have the clear picture of what really took place, one has to travel back in time, which is quite impossible. It is not that you cant find out what happened in the history, it is that somewhere it would be a myth and not hundred percent accurate. These days you cannot believe everything that happens in life unless you see it with your own eyes. They say seeing is believing but that's not always true as it shows in the chapter “ In the chapter "View from the bottom rail" shows two different views from the white and black people. This showed how racism played and still plays a huge part in America......

Day-to-Day Stress

...Day-to-Day Stress Omar R. Hameen GEN/200 May 17, 2011 Barbara Alston Day-to-Day Stress In the following paper I would like to talk about a problem that causes stress my daily life. I will describe how to gather information to help me solve this problem and where the information can be obtained. In this paper I will talk about my experiences and how I deal various forms of stressors at home and in social settings. Daily stress Stress is a term used by many, is severly misunderstood, and often used to describe a negative condition or emotional state. It is our biological way of dealing with sudden changes in our life. The biggest stressor for me is fatigue.   Most days, my morning starts around 10 a.m.   By 11 a.m., I’m hurrying to the store to grab an energy drink then back home to work on school assignments and apply for jobs online.   At 12 a.m. I start my “work day”, which typically requires cleaning, preparing my daughter for school, and taking care of any outside work that needs to be done.   I usually find myself leaving home at 5 p.m. and heading to pick up my daughter from daycare.   Whether we go to the park, play some type of sports in the yard, or go on a bike ride; I spend the next 3 hours running around behind my 4 year old daughter, using my last bit of stored energy. When our playtime is done we head inside to do her school work and other learning activities.   Spending family time is important, so usually its dinner and a movie until...

...Day-To-Day Life Time Management Lucretia Chadwick GEN/200 Robyann Musil August 8, 2011 In my day-to-day life, I would like to address and solve the problem that I face with time management. I have found that in the past time management has been a major issue, not only in my personal life but also academically and professional. I am starting a new school, have a job and have a family to take care of. I want to make an effort to give all my endeavors my all, in order to do this I would like to refine my time management skills. To develop time management skills I plan on researching a plan of action from the textbook. The information that I have found was in Chapter one. The textbook gives various steps to better time management such as setting goals for you. Goals are an important part of life, but it is even more important for my time management plan. I will be seeking steps that the book suggests for time management and determine which steps will be beneficial for particular part of my life that I will be evaluating. Not all the steps will be beneficial for me, but most will.

After

...After watching the video of the Student Resource Officer Deputy Ben Fields and the South Carolina student, I believe there are some valid reasons why this instance occurred. One reason being the teacher saw the student on her cell phone and asked her to put her phone away because there were no cell phones allowed in the class. This student defied the teachers order and continued to disrupt the class. The teacher asked her to leave and she refused therefore, the teacher called the assistant principal and again the student refused to leave the classroom. At this point the assistant principal called the SRO Deputy Ben Fields to contain the situation. Deputy Fields came into the classroom and spoke to the 16-year-old first stating “I treat you fair last year, right” the 16-year-old responded “I don’t know you.” Deputy Fields responded “you don’t know me? Deputy Fields then stated to the 16-year-old “I need you to come with me or I’m gonna make you.” The 16-year-old is heard saying “no” and Deputy Fields is also heard saying “C’mon, I am gonna get you up.” Deputy Fields, the teacher, and the assistant principal were all trying to get this 16-year-old to cooperate with them but she refused to obey with authority. Deputy Fields was allowed to use force because of this 16-year-old non-cooperation with authority. The Sheriff Lott, is quoted saying a student disrupts a classroom, disrupts the education process as well. When teachers are not allowed to teach, students cannot learn.......

Before & After

...America Before And After 9/11 Last month NEWSWEEK put out a special issue about our “new” new world. The editorialist says: “TV is now reality-TV, eating rats and bungee jumping doesn’t seems so compelling anymore; with real news to cover, the media gives an added bonus: Enron. Yes but we will never forgot 09/11. As we count the time from Jesus birth, BC – before Christ, and AD, Anno Domini (lat), a new line is now written on the history scroll: 9/11. And the media confirm this new kind of accounting: before 9/11 and after 9/11. Two different edges. In the same issue, NEWSWEEK give us a 22 year-old Rachel Newman confession. She came to New York three years ago to be “a guitar musician in rebellion” against the establishment, like her mother, a ’69 Woodstock veteran. She had herself tattooed, crying: “I would have told you I was a musician, a poet, an artist,… a woman, a lesbian, and a Jew”. That morning, stepped out of the shower in her Brooklyn apartment to watch the second plane barrel into the South Tower. She confess: “In that moment, the world as I had known it was redefined. Weeks ago all I could think of was how to write a good rap… Now is the time to talk with God about my soul and find the meaning of the life because everything has changed. Yes, everything has changed. This refrain has become as common in the post 9/11 world as the Dow Jones level for a broker. For decades, Americans have been paralyzed by intellectual, moral, and religious......

That Day

...Life Changing Experiences By: Olivia Son Growing up in the country you could always find me outside playing with my friends or relatives. We would literally go outside the moment we woke up and would not come back inside until bedtime. Between riding four-wheelers, jumping on trampolines, and having mud fights you never knew what we might me getting into that day. I had my share of bumps and bruises along the way but I would not have changed a single minute of it. We all grow up thinking that we are invincible until something happens in your life that changes all that. I remember that day as if it were yesterday. It was a hot summer day just like any other and I was your typical fourteen-year-old girl who wanted to spend all her free time hanging out with her boyfriend. This day was no different. I woke up that morning and of course could not wait to spend time with him. Therefore, I rushed through breakfast and did everything that my mom had asked me to do before he was allowed to come over. Finally, he was at my house and we were deciding what we might get into. It was so hot outside so we decided that we would go swimming and ride my four-wheeler. We figured we would going four-wheeler riding first that way if we got dirty we could just jump into the pool when we got back and wash off. So we changed into our swim suits and headed out. Looking back wearing only a swim suit and flip flops to go riding might not of been the best idea but it was something......

The Day After Tomorrow

...The movie, The Day After Tomorrow, is actually about the issue of global warming which caused the temperature to increase the earth’s atmosphere  where polar ice caps are melting and thus, increasing the water levels of oceans. Then flooding occurs, and other climatic disturbances occur all over the world as well. This sets the stage for a new Ice Age. At first, I thought it’s a movie about weather, dramatic and a disaster movie. It provides suspense and a prediction of a climate shift which is going to happen again after 10,000 years.  The way the movie portrayed global warming and other disastrous events were extreme and not very believable. Some of the information is backed up by science but most is completely off the wall and nonrealistic. The movie cited the cause of the global climate change to be the rise in temperature due to greenhouse gasses. According to the movie, the warmer temperatures caused the polar ice caps to melt, and the increased amount of water in the ocean disrupted the North Atlantic Current. The North Atlantic Current is what is responsible for the warm temperatures in the Northern Hemisphere. With the current disrupted the Northern Hemisphere went into an ice age. In real life, the polar ice caps are melting, but at a rate not even close to that of the one represented in the movie. There is no way that the ice would melt so quickly that a change that drastic would be made. Another major issue I had with the movie was its temperature......
