Seat belts: The Ultimate Lifesaver

According to the Illinois State Police, One out of every five drivers will be involved in a traffic crash this year, and approximately 35,000 people die in motor vehicle crashes each year. About half of these people could be saved if they wore their seat belts. Driving is something that should always be taken seriously, but today there are still some people out there that think seat belts and seat belt laws are overrated and lame. In reality that is further from the truth. But today there are more hazards out there to beware of when driving. Seat belts are fairly simple and quick; they can be described as non-intrusive, much safer, and sometimes known as the ultimate lifesaver. It is time to make sure all drivers wear a seat belt. According to NTHSA, Seat belts when used properly reduce the number of serious traffic injuries by 60 percent and fatalities by 70-75 percent. Seat belts should always be utilized at all times in any motor vehicle, and seat belt laws should be heavily enforced. There are several reasons to utilize seat belts and to obey seat belt laws. First, requiring a driver to wear a seat belt is simple and quick because it is not only right there, but in reality seat belts only take about two seconds to put on. Furthermore, It is the law whether anyone likes or not. According to Encarta, seat belts were used as standard equipment for all vehicles in the mid to late 1960’s, so why not make use of them? According to the NTHSA, more than 95 percent of all motorists believe safety belts are good idea, but less than 15 percent actually use them. Seat belt laws are divided into two types: primary and secondary. Primary seat belt laws allow law enforcement officers to ticket a driver for not wearing a seat belt, without any other traffic offense taking place.…...

Catbird Seat

...Amanda Liford 11/05/2013 Short Story Analysis The Catbird Seat The Catbird Seat, written by James Thurber, is a short story about Mr. Martin who carefully puts together a plan to remove the new special advisor who has done nothing but threaten to eliminate his department and belittle him. She even asks him if he is “sitting in the catbird seat?” which he later finds out means sitting pretty. This story doesn’t end the way he had planned or does it? The story begins with Mr. Martin secretly buying a pack of Camels cigarettes because the staff of F&S believe that he has never smoked or drank. Mr. Martin has been working for F&S for twenty-two years. He is a very concentrated man and worker. Mr. Martin is very set in his ways and almost even OCD. He has his routine and he sticks to it. Not only that but he is very thoughtful about what he is trying to accomplish and looks at everything and every step of every possible outcome. This has been the reason for his success. So when someone like the new special advisor, Mrs. Barrows, comes in and tries to delete Mr. Martin’s department, he has a good reason to be upset that someone is messing with his routine. She has also been the cause of several other employees quitting or being fired. Mr. Martin sees the threat she has caused this company and will find a way to take care of it. Mr. Martin has carefully crafted a way to surprisingly kill Mrs. Barrows. This doesn’t seem like something Mr. Martin could execute but......

...water is transferred all the way through a sand sieve to get rid of fine particles of floc. Sterilization is essential to annihilate bacteria and organic compounds so as to spoil the water's taste or else color. The water is pumped into a storage tank. The water is dosed with tiny amount of free chlorine. Water is carbonated in the storage tank. Foremost, pure water is put in the bottle by a machine. After that, the refined sugar is added to the mix. Machines are used to wobble the bottles up a bit to ascertain that everything is mixed thoroughly and well. Carbon dioxide is further added to the mix to make the slurp fizz. After bubbling carbon dioxide through the drink, the machines subsequently send the bottles down to another conveyer belts. There are points where drinks have to be checked their quality by a person. This is the last step in manufacturing of coke. The coke is then packaged and is ready for transport to the consumers. A push–pull system in business illustrates the movement of a product or at times information linking two subjects. According to Pinak Paul, (2013), Coca-Cola has introduced a 300 ml bottle in order to take hold of market share with its rival company Pepsi which has begun to plunge prices. Coca-Cola has not only decided to plunge their prices slightly, but also paying attention on the cheap price point of their 200mL bottle. This enables Coca-Cola to thrive in the market always. The Coca Cola Company mainly conducts three primary supply systems......

The Scientific Method with Lifesavers

...The Scientific Method with Lifesavers Lab Report Paul McPhee Lab1 Professor Stanley Aviron Performed September, 2013 Submitted September 2013 Introduction Candy is great and has been around for many years.  I don’t know anyone that hasn’t tried candy of some sort at least once.  There are a very many categories of candy but we will look at “ sweet, hard candy”, specifically the Lifesaver for this experiment. Food is chewed/dissolved or more simply, broken down into smaller parts before consumed.  Lifesavers are food but are seldom chewed, yet they breakdown into smaller pieces or before ingested.  Lifesavers are dissolved in the mouth over a relatively short period of time.  Why do they dissolve? At what rate do they dissolve and is this rate the same for all people? Lifesavers are made-up of mostly sugar and artificial ingredients.  Regardless, it is likely that higher acidic substances will dissolve the candy faster than lower acidic substances. Materials and Methods Firstly, we as a group, spent time applying our senses to the lifesaver and recorded out thoughts.  It is a relatively light but solid candy, round with whole in its middle.  In my case it was red and smelled fruity and fragrant but unlike real, organic fruit or flowers.  It tasted great and I enjoyed the experience very much.  It took about five minutes to completely dissolve the candy in my mouth. Since saliva is different from depending on persons mouth, it was decided to......

The Catbird Seat

...The Catbird Seat James Thurber Published in The New Yorker, Nov. 14, 1942 Mr. Martin bought the pack of Camels on Monday night in the most crowded cigar store on Broadway. It was theatre time and seven or eight men were buying cigarettes. The clerk didn't even glance at Mr. Martin, who put the pack in his overcoat pocket and went out. If any of the staff at F & S had seen him buy the cigarettes, they would have been astonished, for it was generally known that Mr. Martin did not smoke, and never had. No one saw him. It was just a week to the day since Mr. Martin had decided to rub out Mrs. Ulgine Barrows. The term "rub out" pleased him because it suggested nothing more than the correction of an error--in this case an error of Mr. Fitweiler. Mr. Martin had spent each night of the past week working out his plan and examining it. As he walked home now he went over it again. For the hundredth time he resented the element of imprecision, the margin of guesswork that entered into the business. The project as he had worked it out was casual and bold, the risks were considerable. Something might go wrong anywhere along the line. And therein lay the cunning of his scheme. No one would ever see in it the cautious, painstaking hand of Erwin Martin, head of the filing department at F & S, of whom Mr. Fitweiler had once said, "Man is fallible but Martin isn't." No one would see his hand, that is, unless it were caught in the act. Sitting in his apartment, drinking a......

The Ultimate Sacrifice

...The Ultimate Sacrifice: Trading Everything for Love To sacrifice is to give up something precious in order to gain or maintain something worthy, such as a cherished relationship. Often we sacrifice what we love the most for the sake of family, friends or anything that is dear to us. We sometimes do this to be a part of something bigger than ourselves, or to contribute to a greater cause. Every day, men and women sacrifice their jobs and career aspirations for their families. Giving up their own individual passions and eradicating their future plans illustrates the true nature of sacrifice and a powerful force commonly known as love. Philosophy expert, Aaron Ben-Zeév states in his article from “Psychology Today,” “relationships require few sacrifices and more compromises” (Ben-Zeév). However, through examining Khaled Hosseini’s famous novel, A Thousand Splendid Suns, I determined that love always requires sacrifice. Amongst the growing conflicts of the Middle East, the fates of two Afghani women are interwoven as they are both forced into a marriage (with the same man) that does not represent genuine love. Instead, they are enslaved to a relationship dominated by physical violence and backlash from their cruel and abusive husband, Rasheed. They are in a constant struggle with suffering and hardships with the only thing left to live for being hope alone. In Khaled Hosseini's A Thousand Splendid Suns, the tragic theme of love and sacrifice is unveiled as the lives of Laila...

Retailing, Build a Belt and Boot

...Build a Belt & Boot B3 1.) At Nelson’s stage in development, I would consider sourcing the hides that are often used direct to save the money. It seems the hides that are most often used may be able to predicted and allow for the lead-time. It sounds as thought the more exotic skins are not able to purchase direct. He would be able to try sourcing direct and review the cost savings, and if it’s interfering with the boot production. If he is unable to meet the two-week making of the boots ordering direct it would not make sense for the company to order direct. 2.) One way to keep inventory levels in control would be for Nelson to manage his inventory effectively and have a safety net in place for his hides that are always consumed. To have a certain percent like 40% set that inventory may not fall below. That way he should always have sufficient hides available and this would have lead times or possible theft considered especially if ordering direct. He also may want to consider investing in system that monitors his point of sales, therefore monitoring inventory in real time. He may also want to review his logistic network. 3.) If Nelson would like to grow his business faster, get his brand out to other demographic areas where is product would sell and minimize his risk and investment but maximize his opportunity for success he should franchise. Nelson should also be willing to keep an open and collaborative relationship with the franchisee, to help assist......

Seat Belts

...to share with you just how important wearing your seatbelt is and how two straps may save you or your family members life. The first seatbelt was invented in 1849 in the Volvo. The first U.S patent for the automobile seatbelt was to Edward J. Claghorn Of New York on February 10, 1885. The seatbelt was designed to be applied to the person, and provided with the hooks and other attachments for securing the person a fixed object. There are several types of belts in cars such as the 2-point belt, with two attachments, 3-point belt, lap and shoulder attachment, and the children’s belt that has child restraints. Everyday fatal car accidents occur that take a humans life with or without the seatbelt on, but in today’s studies 40,000 people die each year in accidents and the seatbelt prevents death in half of these accidents. If you know this and still don’t wear a seatbelt ask yourself why not. The seatbelt holds the body in place in case of a strong impact by another car, truck, or any type of collision. Wearing the belt prevents the second collision from happening, the human collision. In the late 70’s there were a lot of fatal accidents that raised everyone’s eyebrows that mad the seatbelt become more popular. Accidents such as car crashes and planes crashes involved people being thrown from their vehicles. Law officials were having a difficult time with finding bodies ejected from cars. Bodies would be found several feet away and officials had to find a way......

Why School Buses Are Not Required to Have Seat Belts

...about seat belts? Why don’t school buses have them? The short answer is that small school buses do in fact require seat belts; large school buses, with a few exceptions do not. Seat belts are not required on the larger school buses because both the U.S. Department of Transportation and Transport Canada, have determined that compartmentalization is the preferred occupant protection system. To explain these differences in a greater detail we begin as follows; a small bus is categorized as a bus under 10,000lbs in weight, which are required by federal law to have seat belt systems on them due to the fact that they are closer in nature to the size of the average automobile and/or light trucks. The federal government requires a level of occupant protection similar to those that are the standards of cars and trucks for a bus that falls into this category. Larger buses typically will weigh 23,000 lbs or more. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s same regulatory update stated that local school districts were best equipped to decide whether the large “Type C” ( which are the conventional school buses) and Type D ( transit style vehicle with its body installed upon a chassis, with the engine mounted in the front, mid-ship, or rear) school buses have the seat belts. If the answer is yes, the manufacturing guidelines for how to best install these restraints comes into play. Many parents are worried about the contradiction between the need to use seat belts......
