Uh-huh. MS. TURNER: Mr. Christensen, these are the medical records because we didn't print them all out. MR. CHRISTENSEN: I figured. And you had sent me those, but I appreciate you bringing them. We might open them up and refer to them, actually. Q. Did you happen to have in your file your billing for your services at all? A. No. Q. And why is that? A. My wife takes care of that so I don't keep a record with me of billing. Q. How does she typically do that? MS. TURNER: Objection. Foundation. Answer it if you know. A. I give her the hours that I spent working on the case and then she sends an invoice. Q. And where is the documentation for your hours? Is it on your handwritten notes? A. So up at…...

Essay

...An essay has been defined in a variety of ways. One definition is a "prose composition with a focused subject of discussion" or a "long, systematic discourse".[1] It is difficult to define the genre into which essays fall. Aldous Huxley, a leading essayist, gives guidance on the subject.[2] He notes that "the essay is a literary device for saying almost everything about almost anything", and adds that "by tradition, almost by definition, the essay is a short piece". Furthermore, Huxley argues that "essays belong to a literary species whose extreme variability can be studied most effectively within a three-poled frame of reference". These three poles (or worlds in which the essay may exist) are: The personal and the autobiographical: The essayists that feel most comfortable in this pole "write fragments of reflective autobiography and look at the world through the keyhole of anecdote and description". The objective, the factual, and the concrete-particular: The essayists that write from this pole "do not speak directly of themselves, but turn their attention outward to some literary or scientific or political theme. Their art consists on setting forth, passing judgement upon, and drawing general conclusions from the relevant data". The abstract-universal: In this pole "we find those essayists who do their work in the world of high abstractions", who are never personal and who seldom mention the particular facts of experience. Huxley adds that "the most richly satisfying......

Deposition Technique

...California Institute of Technology Physics 77 Vacuum Techniques and Thin Film Deposition Experiment 3 (October 2001) 1 Introduction Much of modern experimental physics is done under vacuum. Design and construction of vacuum apparatus is one of the most useful ”bread and butter” skills an experimentalist in condensed matter, atomic, or optical physics can have, and the subject of vacuum engineering is a vast one. This lab serves as an introduction to basic vacuum techniques and thin film growth, another often essential skill for condensed matter physicists. This lab is an optional prerequisite for Experiment 10, Condensed Matter Physics at Cryogenic Temperatures, for which you can grow your own samples for Weak Localization measurements if you choose. 2 Pressure and gas flow In vacuum work, pressures are almost always measured in millimeters of mercury, or torr. One torr is just the pressure necessary to support a column of mercury with a height of one millimeter. The conversion to units more familiar to readers of physics textbooks is 1atmosphere = 101kPa = 760torr There are two pressure regimes of interest to the scientist working with vacuum systems, and gases behave differently in each regime. The first, the viscous flow regime, describes the case where gas flows as a fluid, where the mean free path of the gas molecules is much smaller than the dimensions of the apparatus. The second, the molecular flow regime, describes the high-vacuum case, where the......

These kinds of filler metals are generally categorised in “Flux C.W”, “Self Shielded Flux C.W” and “Metal C.W”. Researches on C.Ws used for hardfacing on plane carbon steels, showed that hypo eutectic and eutectic compositions can increase the abrasion resistance. On the other hand addition of “Mn” shows some reductions in abrasion resistance and increasing in impact energy. Special coated electrodes with metal C.Ws had developed for welding of Ductile Cast Iron. This C.W can deposit weld metal same as base metal and also reduce costs in compare with E-Ni. C.Ws produced with “Ti” strip as tube......

Atomic Layer Deposition

...Minireviews Electronic Materials M. Leskelä and M. Ritala Atomic Layer Deposition Chemistry: Recent Developments and Future Challenges** Markku Leskelä* and Mikko Ritala Keywords: atomic layer deposition · microelectronics · nitrides · oxides · thin films ew materials, namely high-k (high-permittivity) dielectrics to replace SiO2, Cu to replace Al, and barrier materials for Cu, are revolutionizing modern integrated circuits. These materials must be deposited as very thin films on structured surfaces. The self-limiting growth mechanism characteristic to atomic layer deposition (ALD) facilitates the control of film thickness at the atomic level and allows deposition on large and complex surfaces. These features make ALD a very promising technique for future integrated circuits. Recent ALD research has mainly focused on materials required in microelectronics. Chemistry, in particular the selection of suitable precursor combinations, is the key issue in ALD; many interesting results have been obtained by smart chemistry. ALD is also likely to find applications in other areas, such as magnetic recording heads, optics, demanding protective coatings, and micro-electromechanical systems, provided that cost-effective processes can be found for the materials required. N 1. Introduction Atomic layer deposition (ALD) has recently received much interest as a potential deposition method for advanced thin-film structures. However, ALD had already been developed and......

An Essay on Essays

...Essays are generally scholarly pieces of writing written from an author's personal point of view, but the definition is vague, overlapping with those of an article, a pamphlet and a short story. Essays can consist of a number of elements, including: literary criticism, political manifestos, learned arguments, observations of daily life, recollections, and reflections of the author. Almost all modern essays are written in prose, but works in verse have been dubbed essays (e.g. Alexander Pope's An Essay on Criticism and An Essay on Man). While brevity usually defines an essay, voluminous works like John Locke's An Essay Concerning Human Understanding and Thomas Malthus's An Essay on the Principle of Population are counterexamples. In some countries (e.g., the United States and Canada), essays have become a major part of formal education. Secondary students are taught structured essay formats to improve their writing skills, and admission essays are often used by universities in selecting applicants and, in the humanities and social sciences, as a way of assessing the performance of students during final exams.

Application Essay

...Writing Your Graduate School Application Essay Generally speaking, there are two types of application essays for graduate school: the statement of purpose (SOP) and the personal statement. (Refer to FAQs to find out how the two types are different.) Both types let you convince the admissions committee that you are a good fit for the program and can contribute to the department. Although different graduate schools may ask you to answer different prompts, most ask that you write no more than a two-page application essay. The application essay is difficult to write because you must pitch your candidacy to a few department faculty members who read through hundreds – or sometimes thousands – of other essays. In this handout, you will learn how to show these busy readers that you will contribute meaningfully to the university and their department. 1. Relate your past and present experiences to the future. In their application essays, many applicants make the mistake of underemphasizing the future. But it’s important that you show how your past experiences have informed your present work, and how your present work can be extended to the future or raise new research questions. Admissions committees assess many qualified applicants based on whether their research will reflect positively on the university and their department. Committees will think your past and present work is relevant only if it relates directly to your plans for the future. If you don’t know exactly where your......

Essay

...eight angels that surround the main focus. There are four around the bodies and four towards the bottom of what looks like stairs. The angels that surround the bodies carry different items. Two are placing the golden crown on the Virgin Mother’s head while the other two seem to offer bundles of flowers to their heavenly Mother. The four angels toward the bottom of the painting tell a different story. Above the angels one can see the Virgin Mary holding baby Christ. In each of the four angels’ hands are some of the instruments from the Passion of the Christ. One angel holds the three nails that were placed in Jesus’ hands and feet. Other angels have the flagellum that was used to inflect the last five wounds, the ladder that was used for deposition, and finally the vinegar and gall soaked sponge that was used to quench the thirst of Christ on the cross. Upon seeing the instruments of the Passion, it appears as if the angels are possibly foreshadowing what is in store for Christ. This conclusion is brought up because in the painting, Christ is not yet a man but still a child. It is also to be thought that these instruments are some of the weapons that were used when Christ attained defeat over the Devil. Towards the bottom of the painting, there are stairs. Along the side the stairs, there are three candles on each step. In Christianity, the number three represents the Holy Trinity. The Holy Trinity is the presence of the three divine persons, the Father, the Son, and the......

A Deposition

...Jorie (& Jamie): A Deposition The story is told from Jamie's point of view. Jamie is a thirteen year old girl and have little brother and a twin sister. The little brothers name is Calvin and her sisters name is Jorie. We do not know the name of her parents, but we do know that the father left the family and that in the end the mother went to prison. The narrator is limited, because we only hear the story from Jamie's perspective. (l. 7) "I want to see my mom now" is an example on how the narrator is limited. Jamie believes that if she tells the person we do not know (maybe the school nurse) about her mom, she would come and visit her mom. But Jamie does not know the better life with her family will not happen since something happened to Jorie and the mom ended up in prison for it. The narrator is limited because it has the effect that you see how the whole situation effects the girl. The anxiety, unawareness and fear she goes through is more clear to us if we as a reader is not certain about what happened. Because we do not know more than she does, it is as if we are experiencing the story with her, and we are exposed to what unfolds along side with her. It is a way for the reader to be able to identify with Jamie in an easier way. Jamie is not a typical girl because she experience things at home that is not normal for the typical girl.
