Just before dawn on July 6, 1945, only a few clouds hung over the still New Mexico desert. The air possessed that lucid clarity which skews all sense of distance and space. Out on the desert stood several large towers, yet from the perspective of the blockhouse, where the observers anxiously waited, they appeared as little more than a few spikes stuck in the sand. Suddenly, one of the towers erupted into a brilliant fireball, searing the air and instantly replacing the dawn’s pastels with a blazing radiance. With the radiance came heat: an incredible, scorching heat that rolled outward in waves. Where seconds before the sand had stretched cool and level in every direction, now it fused into glass pellets. The concussion from the fireball completely vaporized the tower at its center, created a crater a quarter of a mile wide, and obliterated another forty-ton steel tower one-half mile away. Above the fireball an ominous cloud formed, shooting upward, outward, then back upon itself to form the shape of a mushroom, expanding until it had reached eight miles in the air. The effects of the fireball continued outward from its center: the light, followed by the waves of heat, and then the deadening roar of the concussion, sharp enough to break a window over 125 miles away. Light, heat, concussion—— but first and foremost, the brilliance of the light. At the edge of the desert a blind woman was facing the explosion. She saw the light. In the blockhouse at Alamogordo, where scientists watched, feelings of joy and relief were mixed with foreboding. The bomb had worked. Theory had been turned into practice. And devastating as the explosion appeared, the resulting fireball had not ignited the earth’s atmosphere, as some scientists had predicted. But the foreboding was impossible to shake. Humankind now had in its hands unprecedented power to destroy. General Leslie R. Groves,…...

Dc Homicides with References and Citations

...DC Homicides in the News Again According to an article by the Washington Post, “D.C. Homicides: In 15 Percent of Closed Cases, No Charges and No Arrests,” there have been many closed cases that were not approved by the families of the victims: “A Post examination of nearly 2,300 homicides in the District between 2000 and 2011 finds that police closed at least 189 cases without an arrest, leaving some families of victims wondering” (Thompson 1). Also, the protocol of most investigations is to conduct interviews with the suspects and victims of each case, with integrity and honor. This has not been the case with Washington, D.C. police officers according to many victims: “A Washington Post examination of nearly 2,300 homicides in the District between 2000 and 2011 found that police closed at least 189 cases without an arrest — 15 percent of the 1,288 total closures. Cases solved without an arrest are known as “administrative,” or “304.1s ,” after the section in the police general orders that refers to the procedure. They are counted the same as an arrest in closure statistics, which are the main measuring stick for homicide detectives and police chiefs” (Thompson 1). Police misconduct is not restricted to the bad behavior of police officers; misconduct appears when police officers simply do not do their jobs, as in the case of many reports relating to the Washington, D.C. police department. There have been many instances of police misconduct in the news, as early as...

...Oral Roberts University SUPERIORITY AND BLURRED LINES: An observation of the themes communicated in major DC Comics storylines Joshua Gallego Philosophy of Science HONR 102 Dr. Ken Weed/Dr. Samuel Thorpe March 13, 2014 Introduction Superheroes are part of an American upbringing. Stories of persons with capabilities that far exceed that of the human race are popular and appealing to our youth and even to many adults. Entertainment in general pervades the American culture, and this specific type of entertainment dealing with superheroes is of considerable size and has been a constant for several decades. Images of Superman, Captain America and many others are immediately recognized when seen. The entertainment value of these fictitious tales has caused the companies that own them to expand into creating computer games and producing movies, which has made them even more visible. It is considered weird if a person does not even know the basic story of these costumed figures. The adventures, stories, and even lives of these fictions have become a part of the American Psyche. Throughout the course of this semester, discussion in the Philosophy of Science class has led to topics such as the paradigms and presuppositions that we approach our world from and the metaphors that we use to communicate ideas and concepts. Such discussion has led to the asking of questions concerning things that we encounter in everyday circumstances. Questions like “What are the......

To do this will require the application of Mesh Analysis, Thevenin’s Theorem and simple DC Theory... 1.0 Mesh Analysis Applying mesh analysis to the circuit will determine the currents that flow through each of the three meshes provided. From these current values, simple DC theorem will be applied using Ohm’s law in order to calculate the voltage of node A and node B with respect to the ground node. 1.1 Determining mesh currents The following steps will outline what will be required to calculate mesh 1, 2 and 3 currents. 1. Observing the circuit, use Kirchhoff’s voltage rule to determine each mesh into a formula resulting in three separate formulas. Mesh 1 20(i1-2) + 20(i1-i3) + 50(i1-i2) = 0 90i1 - 50i2 - 20i3 = 40 Mesh 2 50(i2-i1) + 25i2 + 26 = 0 -50i1 + 75i2 = -26 Mesh 3 30i3 – 25 + 20(i3-i1) = 0 -20i1 + 50i3 = 25 2.

Main Features of a Dc Motor

...Describe the main features of a DC electric motor and the role of each feature - Electrical motors can be classified as either: o DC (direct current) motors: or o AC (alternating current) motors - The commutator DC motor consists of: o An Armature (the rotor) o A magnetic field produced by permanent magnets or by electromagnets. It is equivalent to the stator o A commutator to reverse the direction of the current o Connecting brushes to take the current to and from the armature - The armature is made up of a large number of coils (or turns) wrapped around an iron core that is free to rotate about a horizontal axis (hence the rotor). These coils are arranged at angles to each other. (To minimize the air gap between the armatures conductors and the stator, the conductors are often imbedded in slots cut longitudinally into the metal core. - In its simplest form the field structure (stator) is made with permanent magnets (called field magnets), but also can be made from electromagnets (called field coils). The stator is approximately circular as this improves the smoothness of the torque. - In its simplest form the split ring commutator consists of a copper cylinder divided in two electrically separated halves. Each half is connected to one side of the armature. - Brushes are graphite pieces in their simplest form, which make contact with the commutator as t rotates. Springs ensure that the brushes are held firmly against the commutator. - The coil can be......

Predictions for the Future of the Dc Universe

...My Prediction for Season 2 flash story line includes Futures end influences and a Wally West Flash! Here is how I have come to that conclusion and then some. In Tuesday night's episode of The Flash during the body snatcher scene Eobard says to Harrison; "In the year twenty twenty (five years from now) you and your wife Tes Morgan successfully launch a particle accelerator that changes the course of history". Eobard accelerated that timeline, to the year 2015 (technically 2014, and they should have had the line read 2019). Five years from now, the DC Comic Universe plot line for Futures End is as follows: "Reeling from a war with Another Earth, leaving the world unprepared for an approaching evil that threatens to destroy the future can a time traveling Batman (beyond)." Now simply begin to replace batman with "Can a time-traveling Barry Allen, help a massive cast of the DCU’s finest avert the impending apocalypse caused by the changes to the timeline Eobard Thawn the Reverse Flash set in motion after the eventual survival of Barry's mother? That means season two should be getting heavy doses of influence from the Futures End storyline. For the new as-yet-unnamed show, they are casting characters like HawkGirl, so this gives some credibility to a "massive cast" I digress, now since Harrison wells and Tess Morgan will be the cause of the S.T.A.R. labs explosion in 2020, we should see some new superheroes from older cast members, like Cisco becoming Vibe and Mrs. Katlin snow......

Dc Water

...not support the EPA allowing DC Water to use Green Infrastructure (GI) to help meet its responsibilities for water quality improvements. Although implementing GI has tremendous environmental, social and economic benefits, DC Water’s proposal to use GI doesn’t adequately render GI as a viable option for the following reasons. The first reason the implementation of GI is unacceptable is because DC Water has failed to show that GI works. The Long Term Control Plan (LTCP) consent decree was signed in 2005. In 2014, DC Water proposed to amend LTCP to include green infrastructure. In this nine year period, DC water failed to demonstrate and provide site specific performance information on the Potomac and Rock Creek illustrating that GI can achieve equal or greater reductions of combined sewer overflows (“CSOs”) compared to building tunnels. Therefore utilizing $30 million dollars of the rate‐payers money to reduce the size of the Potomac’s tunnel and replace it with GI is a poor choice since DC Water has not proved its proposed GI would fulfil the same requirement as a large tunnel would. DC Water’s General Manager, George Hawkins’ power point presentation indicates DC Water has invested 10 million in GI projects such as tree plantings, rain gardens, green roofs, bioretention, etc., but the presentation lacks providing any significant data or measuring tool on how successful the projects have been while implementing GI. The second reason DC water should not use GI,......

Dc Sniper

...suburbs. Malvo testified that Muhammad, driven by hatred of America because of its “slavery, hypocrisy and foreign policy” and his belief that “the white man is the devil”, planned to kill six whites a day for 30 days. Malvo alleged that Muhammad had said: “We are going to go to the Washington DC area and we are going to terrorise these people.” They then intended to move to Baltimore for stage two of their campaign, to shoot a policeman and then blow up explosives at his funeral. More explosives would target the ambulances that would then rush to the funeral. Another plan to kill three busloads of school children was thwarted because the pair were arrested when Malvo fell asleep while keeping watch at a Maryland petrol station. Muhammad’s ultimate plan, Malvo testified, was to indoctrinate 140 young homeless men at a Canada compound who would “shut things down” in cities across America. Conclusion October 22, 2002 was a tragic day that several innocent people lost their lives to two serial killers. Still today the killings haunt many families and the people that lost their lives are honored for their bravery for trying to save other people's lives that were involved in the killings. The DC sniper holds a very prolific spot in the mind of many northern Virginians since unprovoked many lost there lives without provoking these cold-blooded killer. These killers will always hold a spot in the back of the mind of many Virginian’s since without warning so many died short......

Marvel vs. Dc

...Jess Jones Persuasive Paper: Marvel vs. DC November 3, 2015 One of the most controversial topics for teenagers and adults alike is the topic of which comic brand is better, Marvel or DC? DC and Marvel fans have been at each other’s throats since the 1950’s. “The battle between DC and Marvel is eternal. First it was in the comic shop, then it was on the Internet and most recently, it’s on the big screen (Lussier).” says Tsujihara. DC characters are better because their status is more realistic and attainable, they are more popular among the children, and DC characters work hard for their strengths and powers and use them for good. There are two categories within DC: the gods, such as Wonder Woman and Superman, and the iconic underdogs, such as Batman and Green Lantern. The gods are from another planet or universe and are normally the ruler’s child. They use their powers to protect their land. The underdogs are the favorite in any story and work the hardest. They are not born with any powers, but they want to help so they make a way. The underdogs are the people we look up to and admire the most. They are good men and/or women whom we strive to be like. Everyone looks up to Bruce Wayne because he is a good guy who wants to turns the bad events in his life into profit for others. Marvel literally has no characters that work for their superhero status. People love Marvel and support it and they wonder why their children do not want to work for what they get. Children......

Homeless in Dc

...Introduction Washington D.C. is a beautiful district with great architeture and beautiful buildings. Its population was estimated to be about 672,000 residents in 2015. From the 672,000 residents, DC region has 11,623 literally homeless people, about 1.72% of all residents. In percentage, it can be considered as a low number but this little percentage is not really appreciated by the thousands of families who don’t have where to live or even don’t know if they will have what to eat. A federal estimate released this year, 2016, points that homeless children and their parents passed the number of homeless single adults. It means that most homeless people are families. Women, men and children without a place to call home. D.C. laws guarantee a right to a shelter to the homeless but still it’s possible to see many homeless in the streets. The Washington Council published a research about homeless people in 2015 where it found 3,417 homeless children (29% of all homeless). This indicates that a big amount of children are growing up in a different atmosphere. They don’t have a place to call home, they don’t have relatives, friends or neighborhood schools. Maybe some of them don’t even go to school. Those children face problems like lack of food, they probably don’t have a good nutrition, they have big chances to have more health problems, are easily exposed to violence, estress and no safety environment. These children have high chances to become criminals, as a research...

They currently have 24 branches, mostly in and around the Winnipeg area, but some go as far as Thompson and FlinFlon. They have achieved this by focusing in improving customer satisfaction to acquire loyal patrons, but significantly lack development in such crucial responsibilities such as Human Resources Management. Having expanded from less than 10 stores to 24 within four years, M&Y only have one Distribution Centre (DC) to cater to all the branches for supplies and customer orders. The DC, which was constructed in 2008, consists of two main operations of M&Y: The Shipping and Receiving Department, and the Corporate Department. The Shipping and Receiving Department operate at the warehouse and the yard area of DC, where majority of the products ordered by buyers and customers are being received, inventoried, and later shipped to all M&Y stores. The offices in the Corporate Department house the management body: Operations Manager, Health and Safety Officer, Product Manager, Warehouse Manager, and Human Resource Personnel that had since found another job and left the company last 2013. Since 2012, operations in the warehouse grew exponentially due to the aggressive expansion of the company. The result of this expansion meant hiring more entry-level warehouse workers doing different......

...out to quell the animosity which is one of the major causes of terrorism in the world. This does not mean in any way that he condones terrorism. Conclusion In a world very vulnerable to terrorism, the United States has a military force second to none and on normal circumstances, should not worry but there is a big cause for worrying in that the animosity of many nations against America is doubling. This is not something you can conquer with military power. Dialogue and compromise is the way to go for America to ever realize the dream of living in a terrorism free world. As it has been recently happening in the nation, there are tendencies of domestic terrorism hence undermining the gains that have been made in the fight. The case of the DC snipers is just an example that should have turn off the alarms and help America find a way of dealing with the in-house issues first.
