  • Into The Millennium - 1,034 words
    Into The Millennium Into The Millennium For most people family is one of the most important parts of life. For they are the people who raised you and taught you things needed in life. For most of us we have a connection with are family that is unparallel in life, which is the reason for are undying love. At times though there is a point at which we take are family for granted like they will always be around. Parents might do things that are not agreed upon by the children, yet the parent thinks it is in the child's best interest. Sometimes it might not even be the best thing to do in that situation, yet parents have a true desire to protect their children from the dangers of the world. On th ...

  • Millennium - 459 words
    Millennium This new year was supposed to be different. It was supposed to be something bigger and better than all the past new years. So much for the chaos, destruction, and giant celebrations that were supposed to happen. With all the hype built up around this new years, its no wonder that it seemed to be such a disappointment. For myself, it was like every other new years; although, I must admit that all the speculation and predictions made the ball drop a little bit slower than usual. I had heard about the religious cults, terrorists, and overly concerned people taking drastic measures and making ridiculous predictions about the "new millennium". Bombs were going to go off all over, banks ...

  • Millennium - 945 words
    Millennium Bug If you havent heard of the year 2000 problem (also known as Y2K or the millennium bug), you soon will. To save space, many computer programs and chips use two digits to designate the year. On 1 January 2000, the year date will be "00", causing some computers to set dates back to 1900, and others to shut down or enter an emergency state. No one really knows for sure what impact the millennium bug will have, but that hasnt stopped people from speculating on the potential for disaster. Scenarios range from the bizarre (telephone calls made over New Years Eve 1999 being billed as lasting a hundred years) to the horrifying (nuclear-power plants exploding and planes falling out of t ...

  • The Ending Of The Millennium Could Bring Many Problems To Our Technological Society We Have Grown To Rely On The Most Basic C - 1,296 words
    The ending of the millennium could bring many problems to our technological society ; we have grown to rely on the most basic computer systems to make our lives convenient. In our attempts to streamline programming computer systems, we created a monster by using only the final 2-digits to represent a 4-digit year. Programmers were excited that they could save a couple of bytes of memory by cutting back the dates to 2-digit numbers. With the turning of the odometer, on December 31st, 1999, we possibly could be in for some major inconveniences to our daily lives. Religious broadcaster of the 700 Club television show, Pat Robertson said, "we are looking at a man-made global crisis of such magni ...

    Abortion "At the heart of liberty is the right to define one's own concept of existence, of meaning, of the universe, and of the mystery of human life. Beliefs about these matters could not define the attributes of personhood were they formed under compulsion of the State."1 U.S. Supreme Court Justices O'Conner, Kennedy and Souter Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Pennsylvania v. Casey Abortion in the United States Before Roe When Roe v. Wade was decided in January 1973, abortion except to save a woman's life was banned in nearly two-thirds of the states.2 Laws in most of the remaining states contained only a few additional exceptions.3 It is estimated that each year 1.2 million women resor ...

  • Adsl Modems - 659 words
    Adsl Modems Does the humble telephone lines play a major role in shaping the third millennium? Can a mere pair of thin copper wires twisted around each other transmit Internet data reliably and securely at blazing fast speed, making it possible to view high-quality moving images, sound and vast amounts of data on your personal computer screen or television? The answer is yes, as the growing success of DSL (digital subscriber line) technology abundantly demonstrates. The capacity of a communications channel depends on its bandwidth and its signal-to-noise ratio. A voice connection through a conventional phone network uses a bandwidth of about 3,000 hertz (Hz): from about 300 Hz to 3,300 Hz. A ...

  • Anaximander - 1,487 words
    Anaximander Anaximander About 530 AD the Neoplatonist Simplicius wrote an extensive commentary on Aristotle's Physics. In it he reproduced the Anaximander fragment, thus preserving it for the western world. He copied it from Theophrastus. From the time Anaximander pronounced his saying--we do not know where or when or to whom--to the moment Simplicius jotted it down in his commentary more than a millennium elapsed. Between the time of Simplicius' jotting and the present moment lies another millennium-and-a-half. Can the Anaximander fragment, from a historical and chronological distance of two thousand five hundred years, still say something to us? (Heidegger 16) Anaximander, it is widely bel ...

  • Ancient Egyptian Mathematics - 1,010 words
    Ancient Egyptian Mathematics Ancient Egyptian Mathematics The use of organized mathematics in Egypt has been dated back to the third millennium BC. Egyptian mathematics was dominated by arithmetic, with an emphasis on measurement and calculation in geometry. With their vast knowledge of geometry, they were able to correctly calculate the areas of triangles, rectangles, and trapezoids and the volumes of figures such as bricks, cylinders, and pyramids. They were also able to build the Great Pyramid with extreme accuracy. Early surveyors found that the maximum error in fixing the length of the sides was only 0.63 of an inch, or less than 1/14000 of the total length. They also found that the err ...

Among general anesthetics, cyclopropane, ethylene, and halothane are the most popular. Cyclopropane and ethylene are used with caution because they are highly explosive. Halothane is the most prefered over the three because it is neither inflammable or explosive. Amongst intravenous anesthesia, Pentothal sodium is the most popular. This is because it produces the least amount of side effects during and after a surgical procedure. Block anesthesia is the most common and popular of the group known as local anes ...

  • Armor Of Ancient Rome - 1,947 words
    Armor Of Ancient Rome Armor of Ancient Rome Ancient Rome expended a great deal of economic resources and effort upon conquest and expansion through military means. The role of armor was fundamental in this expansion as it played a significant role in the success of the Roman armies on the battlefield. There were three common requirements for armor construction throughout its history: The first was that armor had to be flexible enough to allow the wearer freedom of movement; second, it also had to be lightweight enough to be worn without tiring the wearer while providing protection against opponents' weapons; and third, armor had to be cost effective. These three aspects influenced the evolut ...

  • Athletes Salaries - 1,972 words
    Athletes Salaries What should athletes deserve to be paid? Many players have risen to stardom by becoming a professional athlete. Athletes have come from many different backgrounds; some from wealthy and some from poverty raised backgrounds. Salaries are continuing to rise, and money doesn't seem to be an issue. Athletes are getting what they want from the owners by negotiating through their agents. Athletes' salaries aren't from their owners, but they come from other sources ("Athletes' Salary"). Athletes get paid an extremely high salary for the work they do, and should consider the value of their work. They do not deserve the extreme amount they get paid and something should by done about ...

  • Babylon Fall In Bible And History - 1,303 words
    Babylon Fall In Bible And History Comparing the fall of the Historical Babylon and the Babylon of Revelation To understand the symbolism between the two Babylon's of the bible, one must first understand the fall of each and how the two compare. There is a lot to be said about the events that took place during fall of the Historical Babylon how these events are related to the fall of the Babylon of Revelation. To begin with I will describe the fall of the Historical Babylon and then relate this to two mainstreams of thought regarding the fall of the Babylon of Revelation. These two ideas are the futuristic and the historical views of Babylons fall. The reason for these two separate views is b ...

  • Berbers In North Africa - 1,894 words
    Berbers In North Africa The modern-day region of Maghrib - the Arab West consisting of present-day Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia - is inhabited predominantly by Muslim Arabs, but it has a large Berber minority. North Africa served as a transit region for peoples moving toward Europe or the Middle East. Thus, the region's inhabitants have been influenced by populations from other areas. Out of this mix developed the Berber people, whose language and culture, although pushed from coastal areas by conquering and colonizing Carthaginians, Romans, and Byzantines, dominated most of the land until the spread of Islam and the coming of the Arabs. The purpose of this research is to examine the influen ...

  • Birth Of Communication - 2,409 words
    ... the world was looking at America wondering what it would do next. As communication helped the word spread about this "land of opportunity" more and more people wanted to immigrate, or at least come to America to see what all the talk was about. Many Chinese and Japanese came to the United States and saw it first hand from the 1860's on (Iriye, 39). For the Chinese the personal meeting did not make as grand of an impression as it did for the Japanese. For example, the Japanese were almost desperately interested in learning more about the military strength and power that the West held. However, the Chinese government was perfectly happy with maintaining their status quo. Although it is dif ...

In 1987, the National Cancer Institute published a report comparing 1524 women with breast cancer against a control group of 1896 without the disease. Again, alcohol appeared to promote breast cancer (Risk Factors for Breast Cancer). Several medical procedures or side effects of them have been thought to promote breast cancer. It was hypothesized that self-induced abortions could greatly increase the chances of getting cancer, as during pregnancy the cells in the breast quickly divide and reproduce. By having an abortion and ...

  • Celeron Or Pentium Ii - 1,665 words
    Celeron Or Pentium Ii? Celeron or Pentium II? Author: Pallav Gupta Instructor: Lisa Anne Culp Fall 1998 The computer industry is flourishing because of the advent of new, powerful processors. Recently, Intel Corp. released its Pentium II-450 MHz chip: the fastest processor on the planet. But because the chip is overpriced, Intel is also marketing the downgraded version of a PII, the inexpensive Celeron-333 which has a 128K cache compared to the PII's 512K cache. To potential computer buyers, this situation presents a dilemma because they must decide whether to opt for price (i.e. buy the Celeron) or speed (i.e. buy the PII-450). In an attempt to answer this question, Lincoln Spector of PC Wo ...
