Nuclear Revelations and Carbon Dioxide Enigma

This upcoming election calls for a candidate who can help Canada continue to thrive and blossom as it has for many generations. The future of this extraordinary country relies on intelligent decision making and a unique outlook on tackling significant dilemmas that are up and coming. As Prime Minister, I would confront these problems in an idiosyncratic manner which would sanction for a cleaner, healthier, and brighter future for our children, and our children’s children. Together, through wise choices and a little time and effort, we can attain a more self-sufficient country and assist in the effacement of carbon dioxide emissions and dangerous greenhouse gases. In such, I plan to implement a radiant and greener future by manifesting the instalment of additional nuclear energy plants, and effective strategies among the government and citizens to help reduce the dangerous and rising carbon dioxide emissions in the atmosphere.

Canada is increasingly growing in it’s involvement in the nuclear sector. Soon, we will need to make major decisions regarding the construction of new nuclear reactors and other applications in this field such as uranium milling and mining and processing. As Prime Minister, I will make sure to implement the development of nuclear facilities as soon as possible as they not only contribute to these applications, but also, ameliorate growth in the aerospace, automotive, manufacturing and engineering sectors. Since nuclear energy accounts for 55 percent of electricity production in Ontario and 15 percent of electricity production in Canada, I will also be able to produce many more job opportunities and work for tens of thousands of Canadians, not only in populated locations, but everywhere in the country. Furthermore, I am so adamant about revitalizing this operation because it possesses so many…...

Essay on Origin of My Name

...of your name and how you feel about it. My full name is Saidah Lauren Belo-Osagie. My name is definitely different from the average Joe’s, but it’s special because I know that even though it’s hard to pronounce, people will say, “Hey, you’re the girl with the hard to remember name.” And that’s okay. That’s because I know that my name means something special: Joy. My parents named me Saidah because they believed that I would bring joy and pleasure to the family, especially because right when I was born, a dove came to my window. That was definitely a good sign. The origin of my name comes from the Muslims. I’m not Muslim, and neither is my immediate family. But for some reason, my paternal grandpa was Muslim, for there were many Muslims in Nigeria. They insisted my name be Muslim even though that’s not what my mother had in mind. She wanted to name me Jasmine, a nice, pretty name. Even though I would like the name Jasmine, it was a common name. I need a somewhat peculiar name for a somewhat peculiar girl like me. People usually ask me what I feel about my name because it is so different, but I personally like it. At first I thought it was uncanny and bizarre, and I’d often ask my mom why it wasn’t something that everyone knew. But, of course, my name defines who I am, and I shouldn’t be ashamed of it. Several times, people would ask me what my name was, and when I said it was Saidah, they thought it was a pretty name. That made me feel much less insecure about my name. SAIDAH......

My Name

...Kristen Ngan is the name. The type of girl who is very adventurous, creative, “kikay”, loves collecting girly things, fashion and colors! I can say that every object in my plate, symbolizes me or my personality. The “Pink Shoe” and the “Pearl Bracelet” represents Fashion. I've always had a 'Passion For Fashion’. Ever since I was a little girl,  I have been reading fashion and beauty magazines. I was always wondering how women could bring out the best in themselves. In fashion, my biggest inspirations are definitely Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe and Gabrielle Chanel. They show the difference between a woman and a lady. In my free time I like to read fashion magazines, fashion and beauty blogs. I love to surf the internet to look up all sorts of fashion online shops. Not just to see what’s new, but to get inspired as well. Being involved into “fashion” is really a big thing for me. Because in that way i help myself increase my self-esteem. My interest in fashion started at a young age. I enjoyed spending my days alone playing with my Barbies. I repurposed their clothes with a stapler and tape and gave them haircuts to match their look. The “Green Ribbon” represents how girly I am. The “Red Nail Polish”. When I became a teenager, like I said, I love colors! and so I’ve been very addicted to nail polish. Its just I’m so plain, without them. And I really take good care of my nails. Also, believed in the saying “Nails Are Like Jewels, Don't Use Them Like Tools”. The......

My Name Is

...My name is Keith Curry, so I have been told for the last 27 years. I’m here at Henry Ford Community Collage pursuing an Associate’s degree in Respiratory Therapy to be followed by, if not proceeded by, a Bachelor’s degree in the field of Medical Management from our neighbor U of M Dearborn. Both of these degrees will be crowned with the completion of a Master’s program in the field of Physician’s Assistant. As a child it was never a dream of mine to be a doctor or any kind of assistant of one. So what brought me here? Let’s see if we can figure it out together shall we. School was never really my thing. I mean I have the aptitude for it but just never cared for it. In my teens I always wrote it off as one of those old clichés. You know the ones I’m referring to. “Preacher’s kids are the worst”, “Doctor’s kids do the most drugs”, and of course my favorite “Teacher’s kids are the ones most likely to hate school”. Well, like you I fall into that teacher’s kid category. My mom recently retired from the Detroit Public School system after 21 years of service as an elementary school teacher, 3 years as an assistant principle, and 11 years as a principle. I guess you can say my mother prepped me for collage life early. I can remember sitting in the back of lecture halls at Wayne State doing my homework while she was in class working on her Masters. The “Wedding Cake” building was my second home as I sat in on many a meeting with her professor’s and counselors. I promised myself......

...Vijay Satyavadi on the MLA’s is valid? On 3rd Jan Mr. Satyavadi was spotted in the visitors’ gallery of the assembly by Mr.Goga Bhai and brought to the notice of the Speaker that Mr. Satyavadi made an obscene gesture looking at him and 3 other MLA’s sitting beside him. Later, on the same day Mr.Goga Bhai and the other 3 MLA’s saw Mr. Satyavadi outside the visitor’s gallery in uniform on security duty. Mr.Satyvadi tried to move his right hand towards his service revolver by the sight of the 4 MLA’s. However, all my clients were completely unarmed and due to the earlier events the same day, which had also been brought to the notice of the speaker Mr.Goga Bhai and the other MLA’s were already under threat because of the gestures made by the defendant earlier that day. Later when they saw Mr. Satyavadi outside the visitors’ gallery they felt threatened by the threatening gesture of Mr.Satyavadi’s, as he moved his hand towards his service revolver .In an act of Private defense my clients caught hold of Mr. Satyavadi and beat him up, since there was no immediate help from any security personal’s would be possible within the given short time frame. Only necessary amount of physical force was used to knock Mr. Satyavadi unconscious, which was an obvious reaction from a sane human and the same would be done by any man in a life threatening situation like this.   RIGHT TO PRIVATE DEFENCE (Indian Penal Code 1860) Section 100 When the right of private defense of the body extends to......

Someone Knows Myname

...The remarkable thing about Lawrence Hill's fourth novel, Someone Knows My Name, the life story of an African Muslim girl sold into slavery, isn't her physical survival. Sure, that's wrenchingly rendered and gives the story its heart. But it's the girl's emotional survival, her constant and ferocious fight for humanity that gives the book its considerable soul. Aminata Diallo is 11 years old when a group of black men step out from the trees near her village in West Africa and kidnap her. Her parents fight to the death for their daughter, but in vain. The child is leashed by the neck to a group of captives and force-marched, naked, for three months across the continent. There, British slave ships ride at anchor on the Sierra Leone coast, waiting to ferry their human cargo to the Thirteen Colonies. It's 1745, and the transatlantic slave trade is in full, unapologetic swing; Hill doesn't flinch from the details of his heroine's ordeal: Aminata is beaten, branded, and starved. She's ogled and inspected by white men. She's betrayed by her fellow Africans, villagers who collude with the slavers. As staggering as the details of her degradation, though, are the observations of her facile mind. But our captors were also marked by what they lacked: light in their eyes. Never have I met a person doing terrible things who would meet my own eyes peacefully. To gaze into another person's face is to do two things: to recognize their humanity and to assert your own. Aminata's......

My Name

...deliberate strokes I signed my kindergarten masterpiece, M-A-R-K, narrowly missing the puddle of wet white glue above the floppy plastic eyeball. I paused with a familiar thought: it just didn’t fit. Mark was just too short and awkward sounding and such a great tissue paper turkey deserved a better signature. I couldn’t escape the disappointment because Mark followed me in bold letters everywhere. On my lunch box, the tag inside my coat, my baseball glove, etc. The name Mark was like the annoying neighborhood kid you get stuck with over summer vacation and just can’t get rid of. I had no idea that over time, this unwanted companion would become my respected friend. Why couldn’t I have names like my brothers? Richard was the oldest and his name was strong and confident. Best of all he could be Rich or Richard, a multifunctional name; Richard when he became president and Rich with his buddies on the playground. And then there was Russell who could always be Russ when the need arose. What were my parents thinking? Did they just run out of letters? It was obvious to me that my name should’ve been Robert. This theory was reinforced by my Sesame Street logic: Richard, Russell, Robert, Mark; which one of these just doesn’t belong? I wanted Robert… not Mark, and like that unwanted tag along there didn’t seem to be anything I could do to get rid of it. As years went by, various experiences made me more accepting of my name. One of the most memorable......

My Name

...P.102 The values held by Homer to give meaning to life in the Homeric Age were predominantly heroic values- the strength, skill, and valor of the dominating warrior. Such was the earliest meaning of arête, “excellence” or “virtue”, a term whose meaning changed as values changed during the course of Greek culture. To obtain arête- defined by one Homeric hero as “to fight ever in the forefront and outdo my companions”- and the undying fame that was its reward, men would endure hardship, struggle, and even death. Honor was the just reward for one who demonstrated arête, and the greatest of human injustices was the denial of honor due to a great hero. Homer makes such denial the theme of the Illiad,- the disastrous results of Achilles’s decision to withdraw from battle after he had been denied honor by King Agamemnon. P. 107 In fifth-century Athens, scholars estimate that one out of every four persons was a slave. Some were war captives and others were children of slaves, but most came from outside Greece through slave dealers. No large collections of slaves were used on agricultural estates. Small landowners might own one or more slaves, who worked in the fields alongside their masters. Those who owned many slaves often hired them out to private individuals or to the state, where they worked alongside Athenian citizens and received comparable wages. P. 113 The Greeks were the first to formulate many of the European culture’s fundamental concepts of politics, philosophy,......

My Name

...chapter we had learned the narrator’s name, Esperanza, which means “hope” in English. “It was my great-grandmother’s name and now it is mine/ She was a horse woman too, born like me in the Chinese year of the horse_ which is supposed to be bad luck if you’re born female-but I think this is a Chinese lie because the Chinese, like the Mexicans, don’t like their women strong.”(p110) this quote meaning that the narrator, Esperanza, explains that she was named after her grandmother and they share the Chinese birth year of the horse, so she expressed a requirement to have known her grandmother. She also expressed her belief to deflect her fate. So that they want to be strong. The quote “the way so many women sit their sadness on an elbow." this also shows her grand mother who was physical and spiritual being was defeated by an unwanted marriage. She explained her grandmother is the one of the others who spend their lives looking out window and trying for escape in her hole life. Esperanza wonders if her grandmother made the best of her situation or she turned her anger at her husband; therefore, hurt herself more than her husband could have. Esperanza would like to change her name to one that expresses true for herself, but she does so in a random way that we are not meant to take seriously. “In English my name means hope. In Spanish it means too many letters. It means sadness, it means waiting.” (p109) This quote from the chapter “My Name,” which is a metaphor for hope and......

My Name

...In English my name means someone who is wise and honorable. According to the Biblical references, my name means judgment of God. In Chinese, my name means lucky family. My Chinese name was chosen by my wise grandparents. My English name was chosen by my parents from a movie. Daniel is also the name of the main character of The Karate Kid, Daniel LaRusso. In this movie, Daniel moves to a new city and being the new kid in town, he gets bullied by a gang of tough students from the local karate school. Daniel befriends a Japanese handy-man, Mr Miyagi who is the janitor at his apartment block. He is later trained by him & taught the ancient art of kung fu & eastern philosophy which he uses to overcome the bullies. My name is Daniel because of that main character. I am like that person because I was also bullied when I was in elementary school. Although I like kung fu, I did not learn it to overcome my bully problem. I do not wish to be like Daniel LaRusso because I do not think that violence is the solution to our problems. People have responded to my name as if it were an original name and as if there were too many Daniels in the world. When people say my name, they make it sound plain and not unique at all. So instead of calling me Daniel, I ask them to call me Dan or Danny. A little variation helps make my name more unique. A nickname I would like would be a nickname that makes mean important person. Something with power that people would obey me by. A nickname like...

...My name is Yolanda Briones , I am Mexican and I’m 17 years old. If anyone would ask me how I would describe myself, I would say kind, hardworking and humble. I don’t really understand the history of our world and all the problems or differences some countries have against others. I think we are all equal, and we all have the same value. I treat everyone the same way. I don’t care in what conditions they were raised in or if they are poor or rich. I was raised by a Mexican mother, she thought me all I know, and thanks to her I’m the person I am today. We were not economically happy, we didn’t have a huge and fancy house, but she always tried her best and hardest to get my brother and me everything we needed, not the things we wanted, but the things we needed, which are the ones that are really important, she would say. She always told me “You are a little person, and maybe you can think that you are just -one more- , on this entire world, but you can be gigantic if you want to, you can make the difference everywhere you go, and please don’t look for wealthy, look for your happiness ‘’ .And that’s what I’m trying to do, I am looking for my happiness.

I come from a family who values hard work but falls short of placing higher education on their priorities list; and being the son of a single 16 year old mother, it was easy to count me out of college at an early age. Nevertheless, over the years, I stood out in school and remained enrolled in honors and advanced placement courses. Following high school graduation I attended Tarleton State University in Stephenville, TX, stamping my place in my family’s history as the first ever to attend a university. There I rushed and joined a national men’s fraternity, another first for my family. From then on I remained active on and around campus in several organizations and in charity work; all the while developing myself into a better student and a better man. However, all did not go well in my first two years at Tarleton. Having no clue what to expect living on my own away from home and surrounded by distractions, my grades began to decline. My mother then forced me to come back home and continue my schooling in Fort Worth. I......

...“My Name” My given name is Pedro. It is a Spanish form of the name Peter. I got my name because my father’s name is the same. My last name is Sanchez, which is also a Spanish name. My grandfather’s last name is Sanchez, and he was born in Spain. Sanchez is derived from the given name Sancho, meaning “sanctified”. Sanchez is the 8th most popular Hispanic last name. I like my name, but it is a very common male name. Also, my nickname is Pedrito, a sweet form of the Spanish name Pedro. My relatives and friends call me Pedrito, but they never complement it because it is not a very distinguished name. I do not feel my name causes people to treat me in a particular way, but I love my name because it is special to me. Because my name is derived from the Greek word “Petra” meaning “stone, rock”, I could associate my name with any rock. However, there are many types of rocks, and there are a wide range of colors of rocks, depending upon the presence of minerals. If I have to choose an specific color, blue is my favorite. There is a rock named “azurite”, an Arabic word meaning blue. Searching the internet I found that there is a plant named San Pedro. This plant is a cactus that grows in the desert. The plant is light to dark green. I also found a place in California named San Pedro Rock. It is a huge rock formation emerging from the depths of the sea.
