  • Cable Modems: Cable Tv Meets The Internet - 3,910 words
    ... downstream traffic travels through the cable modem's Media Access Control mechanism. The MAC mechanism's functions are fairly complex. The MAC mechanism's main purpose is to implement MAC protocols under the direction of the CMTS. MAC protocols are used to time-share the cable media among the various cable modems in a cable data network. The MAC processes can be implemented in hardware, or a combination of software and hardware. Both the CMTS and the MAC mechanism implement MAC protocols to perform ranging procedures to compensate for cable media delays and line losses. The CMTS also interfaces with the MAC mechanism in each cable modem to assign upstream frequencies and upstream time s ...

  • Change The Game - 1,080 words
    Change The Game COOKING UP A COSMOS Will our descendants create a universe in a laboratory? YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE A MASTER CHEF TO MAKE meringue. Simply combine egg whites and sugar in a large bowl and beat vigorously until the mixture is light and fluffy. Spread in a pan and put in an oven preheated to 300 degrees F. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes and voile! Could it be just as easy to make a universe? Since the big bang theory implies that the entire observed universe can evolve from a tiny speck, it's tempting to ask whether a universe can in principle be created in a laboratory. Given what we know of the laws of physics, would it be possible for an extraordinarily advanced civilization to crea ...

  • City Of Chicopee - 1,192 words
    City Of Chicopee A man by the name of William Pynchon settled in the City of Chicopee in 1638. William Pynchon bought the land in 1641 from the Nipmuck Indian tribe. The land was not officially settled until two brothers by the name of Henry, and Japhet Chapin, bought the land from John Pynchon in 1659. The city name derives from the Indian word, "Chicopee", and is translated to mean "Violent or Raging Waters". The land around Chicopee was mostly farmland for about 150 years, in and around the Connecticut River. The city of Chicopee became an industrial center in the early 1820's, because of the river locations and the people's ability to build factories and use the rivers for power. The cit ...

  • Comparison Of Herberts Dune And Asimovs Foundation Series: Effects Of - 1,705 words
    Comparison of Herbert's "Dune" and Asimov's "Foundation Series": Effects of Technology and Belief Systems on the Individual Technology and belief have a great deal to do in making a good science fiction novel. Frank Herbert's Dune and Isaac Asimov's Foundation series give excellent examples of this. Belief systems are defined as religious beliefs in a society. Technology is defined as the level of science achieved in a society. These two factors play separate roles in a society. Yet, at times, they fall into the same categories like in the book Dune where science reflects religious aspects or in Foundation where the society depends on religion and social behavior to survive the onslaught of ...

  • Cow Lore - 1,184 words
    Cow Lore A long... long time ago, in a distant galaxy, was the planet "Cud". On this ancient planet lived the warlike race of the Cowfolk, a race of people who had evolved and broken into two major groups. The first group, the "Beefers", were a very rough and barbaric race. They were the type who enjoyed loud music and a mug of ale, with a serving wench on their lap... even the women. Their leader, known as "Mike The Big Tough Guy" was a large man of great poundage. He had unkept hair that flew wildly in the wind, and a cute, wellgroomed moustashe. The Beefers worked hard and played hard... and smelled. The tavern was alive with music, the thumps of dancing and clapping, and cheers of joy. T ...

  • Evolution And Creation - 1,400 words
    Evolution And Creation Ever since the publication of Charles Darwin's The Origin of Species was published, there has been an ongoing debate between science and religion. Scientists have formulated many theories as to the origins of man and to the creation of the earth, whereas religious groups have one main creation theory, based on the "Genesis" story of The Bible. These theories, however, are not the cause of the debate because the different theories are simply myths meant to explain the unknown. The debate is caused by different belief systems. The main difference between creationists and scientists is the way they fight this debate. Creationists have developed their own science: Creation ...

  • Extraterrestrial Civilizations - 1,082 words
    Extra-Terrestrial Civilizations Introduction Ever wondered what lies beyond our own Solar System, beyond our furthest planet Pluto, beyond what our most powerful telescopes can project. With the latest in Technology and Sciences, we (The Human Race) have only chipped off a flake of the great Pillar of Technology and Civilization. The question is: Are we alone? Are human beings the only possessors of eyes that search the night sky for new galaxies. The only builders of devices that extend the natural senses. The only owners of minds that think and derive the meanings of everything around them? And the answer is just possibly: We are not alone! There are others that see, touch, feel, smell, an ...

  • Extraterrestrials - 1,262 words
    Extraterrestrials Can the Earth be the only place in the Universe that harbors life? Most astronomers don't believe this is true. Certain statistics in the Universe provide evidence that living beings may be common place through out the universe, on planets of other stars besides the sun. In this paper I plan to discuss the various viewpoints of those that believe that extraterrestrials exist and have even been visiting Earth, and the viewpoints of skpetics that believe that aliens don't exist and have not been visiting Earth. To get into the topic we must first start at the base of the subject. First the question must be dealt with of life being only indigenous to planet Earth. One of the m ...

  • From The Big Bang To Life On Earth - 1,239 words
    ... gets more complicated. Two-thirds of solar type stars (M class) in our Milky Way galaxy are members of binary or multiple star systems. When two stars are orbiting close together, their planets orbit both stars. When the stars are far apart, their planets only orbit one of them. Some problems with this situation include: Planets may not be able to form unless the stars are at least 50 AU away (1 AU = distance from the Earth to the sun) and stable orbits can only be achieved where companion stars are at less than 20 million miles apart or farther than one billion miles.3 A planet's orbit pattern is also of concern. Earth's orbit is very stable and only has a small degree of ellipticity. ...

  • Hypernova - 828 words
    Hypernova Mysterious Blast, Hypernova Gamma-ray bursts (GRB) have left astronomers scratching their heads since the late 1960s when they were discovered by U.S. military satellites. Part of the mystery began to unlock when astronomers at Northwestern University detected the first observational evidence for the remnants of hypernovae, explosions hundreds of times more powerful than supernovae, last year. Hypernovae may be the possible source of GRBs, making them the most energetic events known in the Universe besides the Big Bang. Northwestern astronomer Daniel Wang identified two hypernova remnants in galaxy M101, also known as the Pinwheel galaxy some 25 million light years away, in April 1 ...

  • Is There Another Earth Out There - 1,049 words
    Is There Another Earth Out There? Is There Another Earth Out There? (adopted from an article by Guillermo Gonzalez, Donald Brownlee and Peter D. Ward, Refugees for Life in a Hostile Universe, Scientific American, October 2001) Is there life on other planets? Science has been trying to answer this question for a long time. In the article, the authors argue that it is highly improbable that complex life forms exist in our galaxy. To quote the authors: "Researchers are now casting a skeptical eye on musings about the prevalence of intelligent life throughout the Milky Way". Furthermore, according to the article, not only may most of the solar system be unfriendly to multi-cellular or complex or ...

  • Materialism Vs Idealism - 600 words
    Materialism vs Idealism History tells us very little of Titus Lucretius Carus, but one can see from reading his work that he has a strong dislike towards religious superstition, which he claims is the root of human fear and in turn the cause of impious acts. Although he does not deny the existence of a god, his work is aimed at proving that the world is not guided or controlled by a divinity. Lucretius asserts that matter exists in the form of atoms, which move around the universe in an empty space. This empty space, or vacuity, allows for the movement of the atoms and without it everything would be one mass. He explains that matter and vacuity can not occupy the same space, "...where there ...

  • Nothins Gonna Stop The Flow - 1,804 words
    Nothins Gonna Stop The Flow Nothins Gonna Stop the Flow Yo, do you like these? I asked Damian. He was sitting on my bed, disinterestedly watching me model half my wardrobe in front of the mirror. He shrugged, tendrils of smoke creeping from the corners of his mouth. I guess. As he spoke, a huge plume of smoke leapt from his lips, filling the room with a sweet smell. Lemme get a hit of that, I gestured towards the glass pipe. He handed it to me, and I quickly lost interest in finding the right pair of pants. You like this? I asked him, nodding towards the stereo speakers. Jungle beats were pounding from them. Yeah. Did you mix this? Nah. Chris made it for me. I returned the colorful bowl to h ...

    ... ion of radiation is. Luminosity (L) is the total power emitted by a body. The Stefan-Boltzmann law states that the total energy radiated per unit time by a black body is proportional to the fourth power of its absolute temperature; it also depends on the surface area (A): L = s A T4 Stefans constant (s) = 5.67 x 10-8 W m-2 K-4 The amount of power received per unit area is flux (equal to power / area). Light emitted from an object spreads out in all directions, the further away it gets the less intense it becomes according to the inverse square law: L = d-2 E.g., As Saturn is ten times the distance from the Sun as Earth, the intensity of radiation is receives is 1/100 th of that for Earth ...
