    ... on this, we calculated the parts per million and the grains per gallon for each water sample. Finally, we took an AA reading for each sample. This gave us absorption values and concentration values for each of the two main metals we were observing; Ca++ and Mg++. We then plotted a graph of Atomic Absorption Standards. These were values given to us by the AA operator. These values helped us to calibrate the machine. The parts per million that we find will be based on plugging in the reported absorption value into the resulting curve from the graph of these values. The resulting concentration was used as the final value for the hardness for that particular sample. All calculations and con ...

The federal government had won out and from then on the federal government would take more powers then ever intended. The constitution had failed. It had let things run wild. It definitely did not fulfill its job to try to keep the powers balanced and protect the peoples rights. The broadness of the constitution created problems within the executive branch too. In some cases the constitution was blatantly disregarded. Right from the Washingtons first presidency there was argument about how the constitution would be interpreted. During his presidency two ...

    ... in the course of their search for the beast, Ralph for the first time, had an opportunity to join the hunters and share their desire for violence. "Ralph too was fighting to get near, to get a handful of that brown, vulnerable flesh. The desire to squeeze and hurt was over-mastering." (p. 126) Without rules to limit them, they were free to make their game as real as they wanted. Ralph did not understand the hatred Jack had for him, nor did he fully comprehend why their small and simple society deteriorated. This confusion removed his self-confidence and made him more dependent on Piggy's judgement, until Piggy began prompting him on what needed to be said and done. Towards the end of th ...

    I have within my ideology the belief that any man who stands for nothing, not only could, but would fall for anything. I believe through my transaction with A Little Cloud from Dublin, Joyces repertoire and mine greatly agree through the various elements he uses to display the general paralysis of Dublin, such as character development, setting, plot, point of view, and especially epiphany as I experienced it first hand. Joyce, a seemingly masterful wordsmith, has developed this story A Little Cloud through great detail in a way that I can truly relate to everything I see and read; he continues in this story as in the others to reiterate and enforce this strong sense of paralysis this city be ...

  • Executing The Death Penalty - 698 words
    Executing the Death Penalty The implementation of capital punishment in the United States today has become a seldom-used means to deter crime. The death penalty was established in order to punish those who are guilty and to discourage those who contemplate committing heinous crimes from doing so. Society has backed down from its very supportive stance on the death penalty since being barraged with propaganda that says capital punishment is cruel and unusual. Most of the crimes committed by those who face execution can be listed as either cruel or unusual, though. Through analyzing the effectiveness of deterrence, the ineffectiveness of life sentences, and the morality of capital punishment, ...

  • Tuesdays With Morrie - 402 words
    Tuesdays With Morrie This book is an intriguing description of an old mans battle with death. More specifically that man is suffering from Lou Gehrigs disease or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS); a disease that affects the neurological system. There is no cure for this disease, and the only good that can come out of having it is the chance to say goodbye. The chance to educate people on the meaning of life and the chance to give back what so many have given you. I think Morrie does exactly that, in this novel and in life. In this novel there are two people that are at the base of the story and several supporting people for both Morrie and Mitch. Mitch is a former student of Morries who ha ...

Of the many tribulations that plague Americans today, the increase in the amount of African American men and women in prisons is unbelievable. It would be nave to say that the increase is due to the fact that more African Americans are committing crimes now than before.

Grandfathers share their beer with toddlers sitting on their knees while mothers tell their children to wait until they're of legal age before they drink.
