My Pitbull Attack I could remember this day as if it happened yesterday. It was the middle of spring I had just gotten off the school bus, my friends and I decided to walk down the street to the store for some candy before going home. Once we left out the store we all went our separate ways. When I made it home I took a shower and changed clothes, did my homework, and then did all my chores before I went back outside. Usually when I went outside I’d go directly to the neighbor’s house we lived next to them for years, over the years I became pretty close with their daughter. Unfortunately, no one was home so instead I played with the other neighborhood kids. Once I got bored with playing with them I had nothing else to do so I went back home. When I got in the house I noticed my cousin was there so we went back out to play on my swing set in the backyard. While we were back there the neighbor’s dogs were going crazy barking and growling at us. I really wasn’t scared because my neighbor always told me how they were good dogs and a couple of times when I was over I played with them. We stopped swinging to aggravate them even more, my mom always told me not to bother the dogs but me being young and hardheaded I was always bothering them. A couple days prior to this day I was spraying the dogs with water and one of them had gotten a loose luckily I was able to run in the house before it could get close to me. While we were bothering the dogs my mom yelled out the window for us to stop and to come back around front. As my cousin and I were walking back to the front of the house behind me all I heard was heavy breathing and the sounds of chains scraping against the sidewalk. My first instinct was to just stand still because I saw on TV that if you just stay really still and not move the dog…...

The Pit and the Pendulum

...1 The Pit and the Pendulum By Edgar Allan Poe I WAS sick—sick unto death with that long agony; and when they at length unbound me, and I was permitted to sit, I felt that my senses were leaving me. The sentence—the dread sentence of death—was the last of distinct accentuation which reached my ears. After that, the sound of the inquisitorial voices seemed merged in one dreamy indeterminate hum. It conveyed to my soul the idea of revolution—perhaps from its association in fancy with the burr of a mill-wheel. This only for a brief period, for presently I heard no more. Yet, for a while, I saw—but with how terrible an exaggeration! I saw the lips of the black- robed judges. They appeared to me white—whiter than the sheet upon which I trace these words—and thin even to grotesqueness; thin with the intensity of their expression of firmness—of immovable resolution—of stern contempt of human torture. I saw that the decrees of what to me was Fate were still issuing from those lips. I saw them writhe with a deadly locution. I saw them fashion the syllables of my name; and I shuddered because no sound succeeded. I saw, too, for a few moments of delirious horror, the soft and nearly imperceptible waving of the sable draperies which enwrapped the walls of the apartment. And then my vision fell upon the seven tall candles upon the table. At first they wore the aspect of charity, and seemed white slender angels who would save me; but then, all at once, there came a most deadly nausea......

...| Pit Bulls | Mean or Misunderstood | Andre L Bourgeois 8/27/2011 Instructor: Ms Nancy Hill | Andre Bourgeois GE 117-M6 August 20, 2011 Pit Bulls: Mean or Misunderstood? By Andre Bourgeois Thesis: There is no other dog that conjures up fear and terror by the mere mention of their name as the pit bull. American Pit Bull Terrier (APBT) aka Pit Bull brings fear to people because of the amount of human fatalities these dogs are supposedly involved in. The media would have you believe that these deaths are on the rise and is of epidemic proportions with the pit bull being the main perpetrator. An urban legend is that they have Locking jaws and have a super strength bite force. Another myth is that they are aggressive towards people, and go insane. Most people don’t realize is that the term “Pitt bull” is not a breed of dog; it is a group of a certain type of dog. The origin of this breed doesn’t help their reputation. The APBT was bred specifically for the purpose of being the ultimate fighting dog. The breed needed to be quick, agile, strong, determined, aggressive, and able to withstand pain and have a lot of game (to never give up under any situations). What is not known about the APBT is that they were bred NOT to be aggressive toward people. That was one trait that was bred into them, non aggressive towards people. The breeders needed that trait because when breaking up dog fights they didn’t......

Pit Bulls

...How did Pit bulls become the object of fear? Pit bulls are very playful, loyal and gentle animals. But they have a bad representation of be aggressive all the time. Others have containment issues were they can be great with you, but different when they are in a kennel or on a chain it makes them aggressive. Pit bulls are the object of fear because of the way they are shown in the media as well as the way that they are treated. I had the pleasure of having two pit bulls before we moved to North Dakota. When I was younger we purchased a pit-bull puppy that we raised. Roxie was her name and she later gave birth to 10 puppies that we either sold or gave to friends, except for one in which we kept. While growing up and playing with Roxie we would run around the yard. She loved to play in the snow and piles of leaves. She was a very sweet dog. She would come and lay on the floor by your feet and just lay there until you moved. My sisters, brother and myself treated her more like a child then a dog. When we were eating something, we gave her some even though our parents told us not to. She loved peanut butter. She was a very good guard dog, because she would let you know when someone would be in the yard or at the door. She would bark to let you know that someone was there, but she never attacked the person. My sister’s pit bull mini is really sweet as well she loves to come and jump on my bed when I am laying their watching television and she will just lay there...

...breed label, the Pit Bull. Pit Bulls bad reputation is put across by media labeling them as dangerous dogs and telling our society that they are vicious and unpredictable and that they will turn on you. The media portrays this idea through stories of pit bulls attacking people, which grabs a large amount of attention because they are labeled as Americans most dangerous dog. Stories like “84-year-old women recovering after pit bull attack” or “3-year-old attacked by a pit bull in the Bronx” we hear a lot about and they are put all over the news but stories like “Horror as rescue dog kills and dismembers two-month-old baby while his father slept”, which happened to be a golden retriever attack, we don’t hear much about. Since the media tends to only report attacks done by pit bulls the breed has become horribly misrepresented and misunderstood. Pit bulls can be aggressive, but most animals are when they feel like they are threatened. These dogs are known for their strength, loyalty, obedience, and endurance and unfortunately the wrong people abuse that and use them for dog fighting as entertainment. Pit bulls have been in America for quite some time and used to be war heroes, nanny dogs and America’s sweetheart but in America today they are the most feared dog. The sad reality of this is that the pit bulls have not changed, the people have and their bad reputation is not their fault. Being the owner of a pit bull I would like others to know the truth about pit bulls, that they......

The Pit and the Pendulum.

...The Pit and the Pendulum. The pendulum by Edgar Allan Poe involves the story of the man who is facing death in every moment. It is a thriller and is very imposing. The story is told by an unnamed narrator who talks about the experiences in a pit in Spain. The story is about how he manages to escape death when it was right upon him. It shows the emotions that he goes through and what he feels when he is looking death in the eye and his joys when he manages to escape from the jaws of death. The story runs through the emotions felt by a person that was about to die and was perplexed about how he should die but still had the will to survive. He goes through many difficulties in his bid to survive. Many very fascinating ideas strike him and he manages to pull things that he would not have dreamed. For instance, when he puts a mark on the wall to make sure he is not going round and round when he could touch the walls. He had the presence of mind to know that he will go round and round till infinity if the pit was circular and he hence left a mark on the wall. He similarly decided to jump off the pit than being squashed to death. That as a choice he would have never had to make in any other circumstance. In this story, Poe shows an irony- an irony where a person becomes that what he hate the most. The captors of the narrator were the Spanish and in the time of the Spanish inquisition the church was against science and hence no scientific activities were tolerated. The main......

The Pit and the Pendulum

...The Pit and The Pendulum is arguably one of Edgar Allan Poe's greatest works. The Pit and The Pendulum spins a web of insanity over the main character during the Spanish Inquisition. The setting of the story helps shroud it in the theme of fear, torture, and madness. The pit, i believe symbolizes humanity's fear of the unknown, it can also represent the gate to hell, seeing how this story is set during the Spanish Inquisition this theory is highly plausible. Also the psych of Poe himself can be used as an example of an effective horror tone and atmosphere. But this story isnt just horror is it? No this goes much deeper than that by addressing the malleability of the human mind. In the text it states that the narrator witnesses a trio of white candles turn into angels and then shift to his tormentors. What sets this story apart is that it instills a feeling of terror into the reader with its heavy emphasis on the senses of the narrator, unlike poes other works such as the Tell-Tale Heart and The Raven which rely on the supernatural element typical of horror stories. The pendulum which filleted anyone unlucky enough to be caught in it’s wake, symbolizes the fallibility of humans as a whole and the march of time till death. As the narrator describes it as swinging by every one second. This helps create an extremely tense atmosphere during the scene in which the narrator is tied down with the pendulum swinging by every one second, Poe masterfully executed this in a way that......

Sitting Bull

...Sitting Bull was a man whose life story has changed over the years. No matter what the story read, he was a leader and protector of his people. With his power and reputations, it eventually got him killed. Comparing 1911 Encyclopedia Britannica and the 1998 Encyclopedia of World Biography on the articles of Sitting Bull, it is acknowledged that his birth place, his title, his punishment, and death all differentiate; Mostly because they each represent two very different time periods in American life, and although they are both articles on Sitting Bull, one is more in depth than the other. In the 1911 Encyclopedia Britannica, we learned an out dated version of the Sitting Bull. Sitting Bull was born in 1837 in Willow Creek, North Dakota. Taking after his father, Jumping Bull, he became a Chief and medicine man of Dakota Sioux. He led attacks on the white settlements in Iowa and Minnesota during the Civil War. However, Sitting Bull pretended to make peace; he still attacked the whites. He would not agree to go back to the reservation. “His refusal to return to the reservation in 1876 led to the campaign in which General George A. Custer and his command were massacred” (qtd. In Warm 1/26). Nervous he would be punished for his actions, Sitting Bull, and his people moved to Canada. After returning to the United States, rumors spread of the Indian Messiah coming to wipe out the whites. The Indians feared for their land and decided to arrest Sitting Bull. As stated in the 1911......

...it. Mac Firmware Worm Discuss the threat While the amount of Mac-based crapware, homepage hijackers, and content trackers has been steadily rising for the last few years, it’s always been (incorrectly) assumed that Apple systems are locked down in ways that Windows-based PCs aren’t – thus making them almost invincible to the torrent of attacks that Microsoft users have to withstand. A little under a month ago, news broke that two white hat researchers had successfully created the world’s first firmware worm for Mac. Degree of damage While this worm isn’t “on the market” at the moment – the proof-of-concept virus is dangerous. It can be delivered either via an email, an infected USB stick, or a peripheral device (like an Ethernet adaptor). Once it’s on your machine it cannot be removed from the firmware manually (you’d have to re-flash the chip), and it can’t be detected by any existing security software. If the concept has been proved, it’s only a matter of time until black hat hackers start exploiting it. If you’re a Mac user, take appropriate security steps now. What it attacked A firmware worm is a type of attack that targets the part of a computer responsible for booting it up and launching the operating system. On Windows machines, that can include BIOS (Basic Input/Output System). On the Mac, it's EFI (Extensible Firmware Interface). Bugs in BIOS or EFI code create vulnerabilities in the system that, if not otherwise defended against, can be......

...Attack Prevention Trent Lucas CMGT/441 February 27th, 2012 Jude Bowman Attack Prevention Preventing unauthorized access to an organization’s network and resources requires a comprehensible defensive strategy, which includes effective technological tools, and user awareness (“Attack Prevention”, 2012). Often, information technology staff members purchase software and hardware solutions for preventing attacks against network and resources; however, it results in an increasing budget, additional training, additional solutions, new attack vectors or vulnerabilities, and trade off solutions. To manage risks effectively, a staff must first identify network/resources vulnerabilities by conducting a risk analysis. Second, he or she must research a variety of technologies and tools comparing them against the current network risks for preventing and managing access. Some common technologies and tools include: - Firewalls, Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS,) content security, software updates, and hardening operating systems and applications. Network and Resources Security Risks determine the types of technologies and tools needed for protecting an organization’s network, resources, and assets. Additionally, firewalls, and anti-virus programs protect a network to a certain extent against traffic control and malware. However, advancement in technology paved new ways for hackers, and hackers almost always find vulnerabilities to exploit assets. Throughout this paper, the topic...

Pit Bull Terriers

...Pit Bull Terriers Bad Dogs or Bad People Pit bull terriers have the reputation of being the most aggressive, and dangerous dogs in the world. Various forms of media displaying injuries to people and animals caused by these canines are common. Sadly, because some of these dogs are aggressive and dangerous, they have all acquired a bad reputation. Those who know them may attribute a Pit bulls aggression to rearing or abuse but because of their reputation, most people think, as I did, that it is just because they are Pit bulls. However, stereotyping a breed is wrong and unfair, but, with all the negative publicity about them, it is an easy trap to fall in. Because of my children's interest, I needed to find out more about them, so I went to the internet, the humane society, and to homes of some of these dogs. There is a lot of negative information, but also many positive and surprising facts. With research and time, I now know them to be loving, loyal, and not aggressive when raised correctly. In the world of canines, the American Veterinary Medical Association, the Center for Disease Control, the Humane Society of the United States and the University of Pennsylvania, develop a list from a collaboration of studies that they publish periodically of dog breeds that are considered the most aggressive by nature, in the world. In the past, the study was only for dogs over a certain expected adult weight due to the ability of the dogs to inflict damage because of...
