...between people in our rapidly advancing generation. In Paul Dooley and Winnie Holzman’s play Post-Its (Notes on a Marriage), we watch as two young people who are in love and newly married, begin to leave each other post its notes when they have no time for communication with one another. The author successfully tells an amazing love story using a unique means of communication. According to Anne Maydan Nicotera, “communication is critical to inter-personal relationships” (Nicotera). The notes vary from topics such as one not wanting to wake the other as they leave early for work, for tasks that need to be completed throughout the day. The audience, through the reading of the post- its notes views the couple’s life as it goes through the early stages of a relationship, to having a child, to a downhill slide of their relationship, the steady reconstruction of a marriage, and eventually it goes on until one of the two passes on. By leaving these post-its notes, the unnamed couple manages to have a basis of communication upon which they both are able to agree upon. They manage to find a convenient and effective way to convey what they need to say to one another through post-its notes, and even though things get rough, and arguments ensue, they find their strength and return to one another. Their relationship is refound with a clean slate, and although there are occasional spats in the notes, the audience can see that their relationship is much easier once they settled their......

Unsw Engineering Practice Assignment left as it is, and the model utilised in its current form. Group 26 Page 5 of 25 Section 3 – Storage Design for Current Climate 3.1) Storage Capacity Calculations The lake area, height of water and volume are all interrelated, and this relationship is important to ensure that the dam is built for the right capacity. The capacity of the dam is an integral of the area of the lake and its height at a particular point. The summation of lake area times the height will provide a reasonable estimate of the dam volume. Building the dam for the required capacity will ensure that the proper height damn and the required thickness can be calculated accurately, thus reducing wastage. Firstly, a contour map is obtained from the library of UNSW, the map is then scanned and put into the computer. By using the software ImageJ, the contours are plotted and the area of the dam for each respective height of water is found. As the height of the river is approximately 90 m AHD, we took 90 m as our datum. Using the software, the area is calculated. Calculations are only done from 10 m to 30 m as anything outside these figures would not feasible. The Volume of the dam is calculated by using the formula: Where, n is the current figures for the current height and n-1, are the previous figures. Figures obtained from the software are in inches squared and the scale of the map is 1:25 000. All the values have been calculated and adjusted and are displayed in Table 3.1. Water Level (m)......

Note semester; I think you didn’t know how to sing when the note is really high. And the teacher will help you about this, and your chin always up when you sing but you never realized that.” So at the very beginning of this semester I changed a class to this class, and want to improve my singing skill. And just like my mother said that I can’t put my chin down when I was singing. And professor also pointed out this problem. And my facial expression was not very rich when I was singing, that seems like that I didn’t put myself in to that song. Just like a mission to complete. I worked on the chin problem and also the sight singing. Fortunately, the experience of playing the piano made me identify the tone accurate. And I don’t have to spend much time on working this. Therefore, I work hard on controlling my chin, and I still can’t adapt it at the very beginning. But through my hard working I can really handle it now. And as for sight singing, during this semester, I often singing before a mirror and practice my facial expression. And it was working. Now I think my facial expression is much better than before. And there is another point, when there was a really high note that I can’t reach it by my voice before. However, during this semester, I learned how to use my throat to reach that high note. Although I can’t describe how to do this in English, I really felt that was really changed. I can reach some really high note now. Time passed really fast, and this semester will......

...Notes : In the poem, as well as the movie, the two major female characters are Wealthow and Grendel's mother. Unlike the movie, neither of these characters have large roles in the poem. Both play their part but are described very little. Wealthow is often only called the "gold-ringed queen" and only exists to play "a noble woman who knew what was right" (Raffel, 31). Despite her noble status, Wealthow holds her tongue and is only mentioned when she serves Beowulf and his soldiers mead from a jeweled cup. Grendel's mother, on the other hand, plays a slightly bigger role, but only as an evil idenity. Her name is never revealed and she is only known as Grendel's mother, signifying that the male defines the female. Additionally, Grendel's mother is the only female character that poses a threat to Beowulf and his men. Unfortunately, she is portrayed as a "mighty water witch", insinuating that any woman who defied an man was evil and wicked (Raffel, 41). These two female characters demonstrate the Anglo-Saxon ideas that women should be figures rather than hold any real power. Notes how women have become stronger forces in the world, yet are still held back by men. In the movie, Grendel's mother is shown to be little more than a sex object in the eyes of men, which actual allows her to hold power over them. She is able to seduce Hrothgar and Beowulf, creating sons for her evil to live on through. These monsters eventually attack the men as the repercussions of the "sins of the......

The steps are as follows: Design the program write the code correct syntax errors test the executable code Debug the code Repeat necessary Customer: The person, group or organization that is asking you to write a program Software Requirement: A single function that the program must perform in order to satisfy the customer Algorithm: A set of well-defined logical steps that must be taken to perform a task.

...attempt to dictate my response. In these kinds of situations, children very clearly understand that history matters. * When you go into a doctor’s office for the first time, you invariably have to fill out an information sheet that asks about your medical history. Some of these forms are very detailed, asking questions that require information from rarely accessed memory banks. Why does a doctor ask these questions? The doctor is trying to construct an accurate picture of your state of health. Your health is heavily influenced by the past. Your heredity, past behaviors, past experiences are all important determinants and clues to your present condition. Whenever you return to the doctor, he or she pulls out a file which contains all the notes from past visits. This file is a history of your health. Doctors understand very clearly that the past matters. * Some of you might be thinking that these examples are not very compelling because they both deal with the very recent past—they are not what we think of when we think of history. Let me give one final example that is more to the point. In 1917 the Communists took control of Russia. They began to exercise control over how the history of their country ought to be told. They depicted the tsar as oppressive and cruel. The leaders of the revolution, on the other hand, were portrayed in a very positive light. The Communist government insisted that these leaders, and in particular Lenin, understood more clearly than any one......
