...Come along with me on an exciting time traveling journey, on our trip we will go to many far away periods, including the Italian Renaissance, the Early 20th Century and the Indian Civilization. Time travel can be dis-orienting. This is also what it is like to appreciate works of art from different periods. As your tour guide back into time I have prepared this book to prepare you for the tour. The first three chapters of this book, prepares travelers for their journey and will help them remain oriented. The information provided in the first three chapters provide a frame of reference that can reduce the dis-orienting effect of visiting later periods of art history and cultures one may be unfamiliar with. We will ask;" how is the work of art we are observing "attained". Getting a proper orientation of architecture or a visual art is similar to taking a tour of a college campus. When you approach a college campus for the first time there are various buildings on the campus. You will have your first impressions as you approach the campus from a distance and more impressions as you get closer- which changes your perspective. Once one has visited several college campuses one learns how to orient themself. You can quickly find the administration building, library, dorms, etc. To keep one from getting lost in the world of Art developing a frame of reference can reduce culture shock and time disorientation. This book examines three periods and three different types of Art that will......

Philosophical Inquiries of Time Travel

...Of those time traveling fictions that you’ve read for the years of your life, you may still wonder, is it really possible? Despite most of these fictions contradict to themselves. In this essay I’m going to demonstrate that it is, at least logically and conceptually, possible. However, before introducing our subject, I should remind you that travelling to the past does not mean you could change history. What is time, exactly? “For what is time? Who can easily and briefly explain it? ...If no one asks of me, I know; if I wish to explain to him who asks, I know not.” –St Augustine of Hippo Across the fields of science, religion and philosophy, no unique and non-controversial definition of time has been found, despite the efforts taken by the greatest scholars in human history. J. M. E. McTaggart, a British philosopher and lecturer at Cambridge in late 19th century and early 20th century distinguish two perception of time in his renowned book <The Unreality of Time> (1908). He named them A series and B series of time. A series of time refers to the flow, or passage of time. Time is composed of past, present and future. Time is meaningless without defining the present (which is constantly changing), or now. It is analogous to our spacious notion of here (changes as you walk away) and there. For example, when you were 16 years old, high school was your present and university is the future. As time flows, university became your present and high school is the past. Every......

Time Travel

...Time Travel Have you ever thought about how vast the universe is and how little we know about it's secrets?About how insignificant the earth,which is infinite times smaller than the universe,is but yet is so essential that we would not be here without it?About what lies beyond this ever expanding universe?One thing we must remember is that everything in the universe obeys the same rules or laws;Be it on earth or anywhere else in space.This helps us put certain limitations which helps us predict the way the universe works.We know for one thing that every single thing in the universe is attracted towards every other thing,however insignificant may be its value.Using these universal laws many hypotheses have been created.Like for example,time travel is now possible(in theory) but only in the froward direction as it is impossible to undo what has already been done.but time travel into the future is now possible though the idea may seem very very far-fetched.It has been proved through physics that if one were to stand in close proximity to an object of very high mass,to an onlooker (very far away and preferably not close to any high mass object) he would have slowed down in time.For example if I were to stand right next to the great pyramid of Giza and my friend were to stand a long distance away and see me through binoculars there would be a slight time lapse.Now lets think big.....what if instead of the pyramid it was a black hole? The mass of a black hole is huge!Time around...

Time Travel

...Time Travel Jessica Xaypangna Mrs. Pecina Bernal NSC 1 November 28, 2012 Jessica Xaypangna Mrs. Pecina Bernal NSC 1 San Joaquin Valley College November 28, 2012 Time travel is the concept of moving between different points in time in a manner similarly to moving between different points in space. Once thought of as science fiction is now theoretically possible. Reading books, depicted in so many movies, lingering in many minds, can time travel really exist? Whether walking through a portal or spaceship speeding faster than the speed of light, if time traveling is indeed possible it will be considered physics, at a higher level and intelligence at which humans would not be capable of fully understanding for at least a few hundred years. Albert Einstein, Michio Kaku, and many other scientists and physicist alike believed in the expanding of the universe as one that curves on itself in three-dimensions. Through the bending of the universe, it is thought to be some loop holes or shortcuts allowing one to cut or travel through time. Black holes or wormholes are considered to have the power or the ability to do this. Speed has an important role in the rate at which and how we experience time. Time passes more slowly the closer you approach the cosmic speed limit which we call the speed of light. For example, the hands of a clock in a speeding train move more slowly than those of a stationary clock. A human passenger wouldn't feel the difference, but at the......

Time Travel

...Time Travel Proven Today time travel continues to be a science fiction concept used in movies rather than a fact that many accounts and evidence from nature has proved. This article aims to present three main arguments that attempt to prove that time travelling does in fact exist and does not go against, but is possibly aligned with, physics theories and logic. According to author Marcus Chown (2011) in his article about time travel, the concept itself is actually proven by the basic theories of general relativity. The theory is simple; predicting that the closer one is to the ground, the slower time goes by. This is due to a connection between the stronger gravity and slower time progression. So for instance, if you are in a plane, time should move a bit faster than on the ground, etc. How this is linked to time travel is also simple. It becomes easier to understand how a man-made device, connecting two areas with different time progression, can achieve – at least to a certain extent – time travel. As Chown states, “if you could travel instantaneously from Earth to near the black hole, you could travel from Friday back to Wednesday”. However, nothing is more important to the average person than photographic evidence. Despite the wide room left for subjective debates, many photos have been revealed in the past that show strange out of place people in crowds. However, another piece of photographic evidence comes from the 1968 discovery by famous William J. Meister who......

Wormholes and the Possibility of Travel Through Space-Time

...Name Tutor Course Title Wormholes and the possibility of travel through space-time Description After a critical analysis of various topics, the topic for this discussion is going to be wormholes and the possibility of travel through space-time. The research looked at understanding what wormhole is, and the findings were that this is a theoretical passage that happens through the specimen. It is possible of creating shortcuts for the long journeys that could take place in the universe. The general theory of general relativity has been used to explain and predict wormholes. Wormholes discovery The Wormholes theory can trace its root up to the year 1935 when a well-known genius and physicist Albert Einstein and Nathan Rosen discussed and used the theory of general relativity. It was used in proposing for the existences of bridges through space-time. It is these bridges or the pathways that were called the Einstein-Rosen bridges or the Wormholes. The main purpose of the two is to connect two different points in space-time thus when looked and explained theoretically they created a shortcut that could reduce the travel time and also the distance. There is something to worry about the wormholes is that they bring with them risks and dangers of sudden collapsing that is associated with high radiation and other hazardous dangers when in contact with exotic matter. Wormholes space-time in the scientific community The need to integrate wormholes into the scientific......

If documents are found to be fraudulent or information to be incorrect after the grant of a visa, the visa may subsequently be cancelled. Following an assessment of your application, a visa officer may decide to apply the 8503 condition on your visa. The 8503 (or No Further Stay) condition means that the holder of the visa on which the condition has been imposed will not, after entering Australia, be entitled to be granted any other visa, while the holder remains in Australia. The effect of this visa condition is that it will not be possible for you to apply to remain in Australia beyond the authorised period of stay of your visa. It is particularly important, if your visit to Australia is to attend a specific event, that you organise your travel so that you can attend these events within your authorised period of stay as you will not be able to extend your period of stay in Australia. If the 8503 condition is imposed on your visa, it will be indicated on the letter advising you of the grant of your visa, with the words 8503 – NO FURTHER STAY. © COMMONWEALTH OF......

Episodic Memory in Animals - Mental Time Travel

...Episodic memory in animals, Are they capable of mental time travel? Sarah-Jane Fahed American University Of Beirut Mental Time Travel in animals Episodic memory is a type of declarative memory, it’s the memory for personal events and is distinguished from semantic memory: memory for facts. What characterizes episodic memory is that it involves mental time travel also termed “Chronesthesia”: it is the capacity to mentally project oneself in the past to remember events that took place and projecting oneself to try and predict the future. It is commonly thought to be specific to humans but some studies have been done to research this specific type of memory and see if it can be attributed to animals. The study of episodic memory in non-humans led to many contradictory results and depends on how it is defined. The main focus of this paper is to study the different researches done on the Chronesthesia component of episodic memory in animals: mental time travel to the past and to the future and show their limitations. Tulving originally defined episodic memory in terms of the kind of information it appears to store: what where and when something happened (the www criterion) and later added the concept of autoneotic awareness to the definition (as cited in Suddendorf & Corballisb, 2007): the sensation that a memory was personally experienced In their book Missing Link in Cognition: Origins of Self-Reflective Consciousness......

...examining skeletons. 3. When and where was Andreas Vesalius born? 4. How could his family background have influenced his decision to study medicine? 5. In which area of medicine did Vesalius excel? The Church now allowed human dissection, but did not allow bodies to be boiled up to produce skeletons. Vesalius desperately wanted to examine the human skeleton. The only way he could do this was to wait until the bodies of hung criminals had decomposed on the gallows. When the bones were bare he would remove the bodies and smuggle them back into town to study them. 6. What was the Church’s position on dissection at this time? 7. How did Veslius secure human skeletons for study? Vesalius was so successful that he became Professor of Surgery (responsible for teaching anatomy) at Padua University when he was just 23. At this time, the Catholic Church said that the works of Galen were inspired by God. So, in the universities of Europe, anatomy was taught by professors who simply read aloud from Galen’s books. If dissections took place they were usually carried out by Barber Surgeons who had no medical qualifications and who were not allowed to question the word of Galen. In contrast, Vesalius gave lectures in which he carried out dissections in front of his students, explaining his own theories and not relying on those of Galen. Hundreds came to watch each lecture. He also encouraged his students to examine the human body for themselves. 8. What......

Egypt is occupied and truly moving as of right now as this is the time period where they are building The Great Pyramid for their pharaoh and supreme ruler Cheops. Cheops is the second pharaoh of the fourth line of Egypt and ruled a unified nation alongside his relatives and chairmen. He is additionally the pharaoh the appointed the working of The Great Pyramid, which is one of the seven marvels of the world. Cheops was exceptionally occupied as pharaoh, battling effort in the Sinai, starting building ventures in Memphis, alongside The Great Pyramid. His rule is point by point on the Westcar papyrus, (Bunson, M. 2002).

...be on time. For a cabin crew member they would need to be on time as they work with the time of the airlines departures. They would need to come earlier as they would need to check if all the equipment is working and bring on board their own bag before the flight starts. As for an event manger they would need to be earlier to event that they have created with the customer. This is because they would need to check over everything making sure any shipping that is made is made on time and make any last minute changes just in case something goes wrong. Like cabin crew member’s event mangers would stay throughout the entire event checking that everything is going smoothly and helping out any on the hire staff if necessary. Differences- Cabin crew’s members always make sure before the plane takes flight they must perform the operational safety, security and health and safety. Explaining to all passengers the rules and regulations to the best of standers. This is a must, while explaining the rule they must demonstrate how to use the equipment. As for event manger they organise the event for the customer. An example of what the event manger does is that they would have to personally book the venue and food. Event mangers mostly work for business customer and customer that want to set up an event business related.

...2200 Homework #2 If somehow I were to be transported in time to the 1880s… and I had to chose to live in Boston or Nebraska the choice seems easy at first but as I thought about it my opinion changed. After doing some rethinking my choice would still land me in Boston working in the slaughterhouse. Now I know that in the hypothetical scenario the way I live is with a wife and 5 children, also why five that’s already three more then I really want, anyways I have five kids too. Now I thought about the living conditions but since we are not in new york city I think we would not be living in a small cramped room with a box cutting Albanian and a family from eastern Europe. So right off the bat we are ok. Another thing I took into consideration is the fact its Boston and if I am going to slave away at work all day and its stressful heck I may as well hit the bar afterwards, even though im not really that big of a drinker I can still drink a lot so I could maybe win money doing bets and drinking games who knows. Another major thing I don’t have to worry about in Boston that I would in Nebraska, the fact that there are Indians and they would sort of want to kill me so that not good. In Boston I just have to make sure I don’t get shoved into meat machines and who knows what position I have, you were not to descriptive to say what I do in the slaughter house so being a worker I could be supervisor, CEO, manager or a low level person but for sake of the situation......

...by airline management in order to increase the levels of employee satisfaction and motivation. For instance, Virgin Atlantic has contracted with Capital Capture consultancy firm to reduce data processing time by eighty per cent, and as a result Virgin Atlantic has achieved the capacity of offering personal training and development to employees based on their performance levels (Resource Centre, 2010, online). Additional employee motivation tools exercised by Virgin Atlantic include offering various charitable perks. For example, 60 members of the company employees have climbed Mount Kenya in order to raise £35,000 for a village in Kenya (Peterson, 2010). Moreover, communication and employee involvement is another powerful motivational tools exercised in Virgin Atlantic's. Namely, Richard Branson, founder of the brand is engaged in “writing his staff what he describes as ‘chatty’ letters and emails to let them know what is going on, and encouraging them to write back with comments and ideas” (Grout and Fisher, 2011, p.45).   Thomas Cook has given its UK-based employees the chance to buy shares in the company at a 20 percent discount under a share save scheme or through a matching option of one free share for every 10 bought under a share incentive plan (Sip). The travel operator has introduced the all-employee schemes in an effort to retain and motivate its existing staff.
