PROLOGUE: The Adventure Begins

When this homework was assigned last Saturday, I knew then that this was going to be an adventure.

I have never played Warcraft-DOTA before but, I am aware that it is an addictive game. I know this because my 20-year old nephew, still a third year industrial engineering student up to this day, was an excessively avid player. Two years of his college life were wasted because of his addiction with the game. He could have been graduating this year if not for the addiction. Thus, when I heard from Professor Nicart that the game has been lauded by no less than The Harvard School of Business because of its contribution in developing management skills, I was intrigued. Then, she said we have to play the game at least 30 minutes a day for the next 5 to 6 days, I was amused and thought to myself that my nephew would have a blast when he hears about this. Hence, the adventure for me began even before I would play the game.

CHAPTER ONE: Acquiring The Warcraft-DOTA File

I had a very busy schedule ahead of me this week. I thought that in order to have this homework done, I had to finish it as soon as possible. So, as soon as I got back home last Saturday, which was about 7:30 PM because electricity in our area only came back around that time, I immediately searched if the “Warcraft-DOTA” file was installed in our computer. It was not. I also searched the other laptops we had at home and I didn’t find one. I went online to search a downloadable program file for free but, I only found files for demo purposes.

I had no plans of asking my nephew for help but, I had no other choice, I had to ask him for a copy of the program file. So, I sent him a message saying I need it asap. He replied, “Hahaha. Wala na po ako installer nun. Lumang game na po kc ‘yun. Wala na ata naglalaro…...

Adventures in Fugawiland

...Adventures in Fugawiland Fugawiland: a land full of hardworking hunters, dedicated mothers, learning children, many animals, and lots and lots of land. Fugawiland is in between the border of Lake Superior and the Highlands. There were 25 different sites in Fugawiland, but we were only given information on 10 different sites. The areas in which the citizens of Fugawiland lived permanently were either by the shore or by a river in sites F, Y, R (shore), P, I, W, and C (river). About twice as many people lived in sites by the shoreline compared to people who lived by the river. Site F contained the largest amount of Fugawilanders, about 45 people. A way to estimate the number of people living at a site is to multiply the number of houses by five because the huts in Fugawiland likely housed 4 to 6 people-leaving the average number of people per hut at five. Sites Y and R were tied for the second to most sites with the largest amount of people living I them with about 40 people in each site. In the sites that were located closer to a river, there was much less people. Site I had the most people living there, about 25. In each of the sites by the river and shore where the people lived there were only 2-4 graves per site. Most likely, the majority of the people got buried at site X, the largest site that archaeologists dug up in all of Fugawiland, located in the plains. This is because site X contained the most amount of graves and bundle burials-19 graves and 40 bundle......

World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria

...World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria Dawnette Polland ENG 325 Intermediate Composition Jessica Ruddick October 22, 2012 World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria Blizzard Entertainment’s (Blizzard) World of Warcraft games are a massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) that was reported by Craig Glenday (2009), in the Guinness World Records 2009 as having the “most-subscribed MMORPG players” numbering at 9.1 million (p. 245). Although I have not played the fantasy game of World of Warcraft (WoW) since its inception in 1994, I have, however, played three of the WoW expansions with each leading into the next game’s storyline. The first expansion was The Burning Crusade, which led into The Wrath of the Lich King, followed by Cataclysm where the endboss, Deathwing, was destroyed. I also participated in the beta testing for the anticipated fourth expansion of Mists of Pandaria (Mists) which has recently been launched for world play. Mists could quite possibly indicate Blizzard is at the end of the storyline in the series of WoW, thereby causing the loss of its mainstream worldwide gaming subscribers—adults. In order to play MMORPG games, a subscription fee is paid monthly that allows the player access to a company’s server. After the launch of Cataclysm in December 2010, the WoW subscribers had globally reached 12 million. The number of subscribers started to decline over the last year and a half when a majority of disgruntle gamers had......

The Adventures of Aladdin

.... ." "Too bad for you," snapped the stranger, slamming down the manhole cover, never noticing that, as he did so, a ring slid off his finger. A terrified Aladdin was left in pitch darkness, wondering what the wizard would do next. Then he trod on the ring. Aimlessly putting it on his finger, he twisted it round and round. Suddenly the room was flooded with a rosy light and a great genie with clasped hands appeared on a cloud. "At your command, sire," said the genie. Now astoundede, Aladdin could only stammer: "I want to go home!" In a flash he was back in his own home, though the door wa tightly shut. "How did you get in?" called his mother from the kitchen stove, the minute she set eyes on him. Excitedly, her son told her of his adventures. "Where's the silver coin?" his mother asked. Aladdin clapped a hand to his brow. For all he had brought home was the old oil lamp "Oh, mother! I'm so sorry. This is all I've got." "Well, let's hope it works. It's so dirty . . ." and the widow began to rub the lamp. Suddenly out shot another genie, in a cloud of smoke. "You've set me free, after centuries! I was a prisoner in the lamp, waiting to be freed by someone rubbing it. Now, I'm your obedient servant. Tell me your wishes." And the genie bowed respectfully, awaiting Aladdin's orders. The boy and his mother gaped wordlessly at this incredible apparition, then the genie said with a hint of impatience in his voice. "I'm here at your command. Tell me what you want. Anything......

...You don’t know about me, without you have read a book by the name of The Adventures of Tom Sawyer; but that ain’t no matter. That book was made by Mr. Mark Twain, and he told the truth, mainly. There was things which he stretched, but mainly he told the truth. That is nothing. I never seen anybody but lied one time or another, without it was Aunt Polly, or the widow, or maybe Mary. Aunt Polly—Tom’s Aunt Polly, she is—and Mary, and the Widow Douglas is all told about in that book, which is mostly a true book, with some stretchers, as I said before. Now the way that the book winds up is this: Tom and me found the money that the robbers hid in the cave, and it made us rich. We got six thousand dollars apiece—all gold. It was an awful sight of money when it was piled up. Well, Judge Thatcher he took it and putit out at interest, and it fetched us a dollar a day apiece all the year round—more than a body could tell what to do with. The Widow Douglas she took me for her son, and allowed she would sivilize me; but it was rough living in the house all the time, considering how dismal regular and decent the widow was in all her ways; and so when I couldn’t stand it no longer I lit out. I got into my old rags and my sugar-hogshead again, and was free and satisfied. But Tom Sawyer he hunted me up and said he was going to start a band of robbers, and I might join if I would go back to the widow and be respectable. So I went back. The widow she cried over me, and......

A Graphic Adventure

...A Graphic Adventure A Graphic Adventure Nathan Reece Herzing University A Graphic Adventure The holocaust is well known as a very tragic event and a first-hand account of such an event is already intriguing enough. However, Art Spiegelman took the intrigue a step further by telling it through an ironic graphic novel. The short adscript, “Prisoner of War” is an ironic graphic representation of the holocaust from a Russian’s perspective. Artie, a secluded boy, visits his father one of many times to ascertain more information about his past experiences in the war. In this instance his father recollects a time of tragic momentums. Artie listens eagerly although seems to take more interest in the recording story’s events than his father’s suffering. Perhaps one of the most ironic aspects of this graphic novel is the decision to use animals to depict race and nationality. Rats and Mice, for example, are used for the male and female Jewish characters. Cats are used for German soldiers and pigs for the Polish, who were very bitter towards the Germans at this time. This allowed him to depict something through picture that he would normally describe in long script. The variation shows the Jews as pests, which is how society saw them at the time. And it also showed the German as their predators and natural oppressors. Cats are viewed as a control factor for rats and mice, which exactly the way they saw themselves. Prior to telling the story, Vladek is......

Adventures in Cheating

...Adventures in Cheating A guide to buying term papers online. Students, your semester is almost over. This fall, did you find yourself pulling many bong hits but few all-nighters? Absorbing much Schlitz but little Nietzsche? Attending Arizona State University? If the answer is yes to any or (especially) all these questions, you will no doubt be plagiarizing your term papers. Good for you—we're all short on time these days. Yes, it's ethically blah blah blah to cheat on a term paper blah. The question is: How do you do it right? For example, the chump move is to find some library book and copy big hunks out of it. No good: You still have to walk to the library, find a decent book, and link the hunks together with your own awful prose. Instead, why not just click on a term paper Web site and buy the whole damn paper already written by some smart dude? Que bella! Ah, but which site? I shopped at several online term paper stores to determine where best to spend your cheating dollar. After selecting papers on topics in history, psychology, and biology, I had each paper graded by one of my judges. These were: Slate writer David Greenberg, who teaches history at Columbia; my dad, who teaches psychology at the University of Rhode Island (sometimes smeared as the ASU of the East); and my girlfriend, who was a teaching assistant in biology at Duke (where she says cheating was quite common). So, which site wins for the best combination of price and paper quality? I compared......

American Adventures

...Two of America’s greatest adventures were the Lewis and Clark Expedition and Man on the Moon. The Lewis and Clark Expedition took place in the U.S during 1803, while man on the moon took place during the 1969-1972. Lewis and Clark went to go explore the west because Thomas Jefferson assigned them to do this after the Louisiana Purchase. The U.S sent Neil Armstrong and Edwin Aldrin to win the space race against the U.S.S.R. The two adventures had a lot in common and many differences. The Lewis and Clark Expedition and Man on the Moon have many similarities. Both of the adventures took place in unknown territories. Another similarity was that both parties traveled long and far to reach their destinations. The Lewis and Clark Expedition took 8,000 miles, while Man on the Moon took 407,700 miles. Lewis and Clark traveled through land and water, using horses and canoes. Meanwhile, Man on the Moon used rocket ships and computers. The two adventures had many differences between themselves. The Lewis and Clark Expedition took two years to complete, and Man on the Moon took three days to complete. The Lewis and Clark Expedition were allocated with 2,500 dollars, and Man on the Moon coasted 38 billion dollars to complete. During the adventures Lewis and Clark brought back drawings of plants, animals, maps, and journals. After Neil Armstrong and Edwin Aldrin were done with their mission they brought back moon rocks, pictures, and moon soil. In the end the Lewis and Clark Expedition......

...Adventure refers to the exciting activity or unusual experience. These experiences are often of daring or risky nature. There are many people whose life is filled up with adventurous experiences. The definition of Adventure varies from person to person. It is in actually defined as ‘a risky undertaking of unknown outcome’ which means that an adventurer is one who gets a thrill out of exploits, the result of which may also be dangerous or if in favour, then sublime. Let us consider the options individuals have for adventure, in the modern world, to suit their tastes. To start off with, we can consider sports and its varied disciplines, which are adventurous for sportsmen. Ballooning is a sport which has a lot of scope for adventure; of course it is only for those who can afford it, being a costly proposition.

One can imagine the thrill of rising high into the sky without the drone of an engine and with the advantage of being able to control the direction.

Exotic Adventures

...Exotic Adventures Inc: The Amazon River Voyage Case Synopsis Exotic Adventures Inc (EAI) operates voyages along the full length of the Amazon River from Belem, Brazil, on the Atlantic Coast to Iquitos, Peru. They normally operate in high water season and were now offering trips during the low water season also. Unfortunately EAI received reports from Brazilian authorities that waters were unusually low this year but Peruvian authorities indicated all was fine. State the Assignment Question Due to the fact that EAI is receiving biased and conflicting information from the Brazilian authorities and Peruvian authorities, they must gather as much unbiased information as possible and draw their own conclusions. Should EAI take the trip all the way to Iquitos, Peru? Should they take a shorter version of the trip stopping in Manaus, Brazil? Or should they cancel the trip completely? Case Analysis Exotic Adventure Inc. (EAI) is a company that operates expedition-style voyages primarily to the Polar Regions. The company typically operates voyages in March, which is high water season, offering one voyage upstream and a return voyage downstream. After much research EAI decided that it would start operating voyages in October the low water season and included it in the company’s brochure. By early August, 52 passengers booked the upriver voyage and 47 booked the downstream voyage, both in October. These numbers were just above break-even for the company (Shaw, 1999). In early......
