Part 1: Fahrenheit 451

The first part of Fahrenheit 451 is pretty complex. In the first part of this section the main Character Guy runs into a woman by the name of Clarisse. Clarisse is an intelligent woman and she know that Guy has been burning books. So she starts of the conversation by just saying hello, then she asks him why he likes to burn books. He really doesn’t have an excuse for burning books he just enjoys it, I find this very strange myself but I find this whole section strange. Then after the encounter he had with Clarisse he goes home to his wife and as he walks in the door. he discovers that she has overdosed on a drug, he suddenly calls 911 as any instinct of a fireman would be too. Guy steals a book from a collection he is sent to burn. At the scene of the burning, Guy is shaken when the owner of the books, an older woman, refuses to leave her home. Instead, the woman sets fire to her kerosene soaked house and remains there as it, and she, are destroyed by flames. The woman's dedication to her books makes Guy realize that perhaps the happiness he lacks can be found in books. After the burning, Guy returns home, feeling ill as he relives the woman's horrific death. He begins to realize that although, over the past ten years, he thought he was serving society as a fireman, he was actually purely an instrument of destruction. That night, in a discussion with Millie, Guy learns that his friend Clarisse was killed by a speeding car more than a week earlier. When he hears this, Guy feels even more ill. He falls asleep that night with his stolen book hidden underneath his pillow thinking about what he wants to do. Due to feeling ill he calls into work sick, but his captain, Captain Beatty suspects something deeper so he comes to his house and explains how books are meaningless, and after that Guy reads and decides the Captain is…...

Burt Bee

...General comments on Burt’s Bee (BB) case Burt's Bees is an American personal care products company that describes itself as an "Earth friendly, Natural Personal Care Company" making products for personal care, health, beauty, and personal hygiene. Burt's Bees originated in Maine as a candle making partnership between Roxanne Quimby and Burt Shavitz in 1984. As of 2007, they manufactured over 197 products for facial and body skin care, lip care, hair care, baby care, men's grooming, and outdoor remedies distributed in nearly 30,000 retail outlets including grocery stores and drug store chains across the United States, United Kingdom, Ireland, Canada, Hong Kong, and Taiwan from their headquarters in Durham, North Carolina. In late 2007, the Clorox Company acquired Burt's Bees for the reported sum of USD 925 mil. Not bad at all! It started out as a life style business to become a high potential venture, far exceeding original expectations and forecasts. The case is thought provoking as the business becomes highly successful, and raises new conflicts and decisions for Roxanne. It also poses the harvest issue, collisions with personal goals and values, and the like Performing SWOT and a bit of TOWS (formulating strategies) includes general environment (PESTL), Porter’s 5 Forces of Competition (P5F) and competitor’s analyses.

The Red Bee Sting Ronald

...The Red Bee Stings Ronald (Why Jollibee beats McDonald’s) “There is no sincerer love than the love of food.” This is what George Bernard Shaw quoted in the film Man and Superman. Yes, it is indeed an undeniable truth that we Filipinos really do love to eat. Maybe this has been the idea behind the fast food chains that pop up like mushrooms and spread like viruses in the Philippines. Restaurants, carinderias, food stalls and fast food chains: it is not hard to look for them in wherever place in the Philippines. We all know that when we say “fast food”, two major chains instantly come up to our minds: Jollibee and McDonald’s, and we know that ever since, they have been rivals even they say that they both have the same mission and that is to serve and make their Filipino customers happy through the food they prepare. Though they serve almost the same types of food, how come Jollibee beats Mcdonald’s? What do you think that red, happy bee has that the clown in yellow with a big smile has not? Before finding out the real reason that lies behind that, in order to come up with a systematic answer, let us first try to answer this question: “Why do people go to fast food chains?” Just like what I have mentioned a while ago, Filipinos has an extreme passion for food. It has already been a part of our culture to be lovers of food. But, not all can prepare food… right? I mean we all know how to eat but not all of us know how to cook. So, we ask......

Even a little frightened. She worked for a female partner in a big consulting firm. Her boss was so solicitous that Kelly hoped the woman—one of just a few top female partners—might become her mentor. But she began to feel that something was wrong. In meetings, her boss would dismiss her ideas without discussion and even cut her off in mid-sentence. Kelly started to hear about meetings to which she wasn't invited but felt she should be. She was excluded from her boss's small circle of confidants. What confused Kelly was that she was otherwise doing well at the firm. She felt respected and supported by the other senior partners. She had just one problem, but it was a big one.

Ter 123

...Rather than provoke a contest of wills, Nynaeve did so. Daigian was still suffering from having lost her Warder—Eben, an Asha'man—during the fight with the Forsaken. Nynaeve had spent that fight completely absorbed by providing Rand with immense amounts of saidar to weave. Nynaeve could still remember the sheer joy—the awesome euphoria, strength, and sheer feel of life—that had come from drawing that much power. It frightened her. She was glad the ter'angreal she'd used to touch that power had been destroyed. But the male ter'angreal was still intact: an access key to a powerful sa'angreal. As far as Nynaeve knew, Rand had not been able to persuade Cadsuane to return it to him. As well she shouldn't. No human being, THE PLAN FOR ARAD DO MAN 123 not even the Dragon Reborn, should channel that much of the One Power. The things one could be tempted to do. . . . She'd told Rand that he needed to forget about the access key. Like talking to a stone. A big, red-haired, iron-faced idiot of a stone. Ny-naeve harrumphed to herself. That caused Daigian to raise an eyebrow. The woman was quite good at controlling her grief, though Nynaeve— whose room in the Domani mansion was beside Daigian's—heard the woman crying to herself at night. It was not easy to lose one's Warder. Lan. , . . No, best not to think of him at the moment. Lan would be fine. Only at the end of his journey of thousands of miles would he be in danger. It was there he intended to throw himself at the Shadow like a......

Film Analysis of Akeelah and the Bee

...Running head: FILM ANALYSIS OF AKEELAH AND THE BEE 1 Film Analysis of Akeelah and the Bee Miranda Clark (5568546) Word Count: 1561 Brock University Running head: FILM ANALYSIS OF AKEELAH AND THE BEE 2 This film is about an 11 year old girl by the name of Akeelah Anderson who has a hidden talent of being a really great speller. However her environment around her seems to interfere with her ability to be more independent and focus on school. Her dad was shot when she was only six, her family ignores her for their priorities such as work, children, and friends. Akeelah joins a spelling being to avoid having to attend detention for her absences at school suggested by her principal and teachers. Akeelah ends up succeeding and making it to the Scripps National Spelling Bee where she ends up winning the competition. I chose this film over the other films that were options because it was a film I have not seen yet as well as I felt like it would be a great film to analyze because of the black community the film is based in due to the fact that a lot of neglect and racism happens in black communities. Depending on the surroundings of these communities, children react differently based on what occurs. In this film, children and youth are depicted very differently depending on their surroundings as well as family situation. Akeelah is growing up in a community where bullying and racism occurs more often due to race and culture. An example of this in the film is when some...

...JAPAN AIRLINES FLIGHT 123 Aviation accident is defined by events associated with an aircraft that has the risk of affecting the safety of operations which takes place between the time any person boards the aircraft with the intention of flight until such time as the passengers have disembarked, in which a person is fatally or seriously injured, the aircraft sustains damage or structural failure or the aircraft is missing or is completely inaccessible. An accident in which the damage to the aircraft is such that it must be written off, or in which the plane is destroyed is called a hull loss accident. Over the years, there are many aircraft accidents but there are a few major accidents such as the September 11 crash at the World Trade Center in New York in 2001, the Tenerife airport disaster in 1977 which is recorded as the highest death toll, the Japan Airlines Flight 123 in 1985 and others. Until today, the Japan Airlines Flight 123 in 1985 is the single-aircraft disaster with the highest number of fatalities. In this crash, all 15 crew members, 505 out of 509 passengers died and resulting in a total of 520 deaths on board a Boeing 747. The aircraft suffered an explosive decompression from an incorrectly repaired doubler plates causing the aft pressure bulkhead to fail, which failed in mid flight and destroyed most of its vertical stabilizer, and severed all of the hydraulic lines, making the 747 paralyzed and uncontrollable. The pilots were able to keep the plane......

Royal Bee

... STUDI KASUS : Royal Bee Electric Fishing Reel Studi kasus ini membahas tentang seseorang yang bernama Royal Barton yang mempunyai hobi berburu dan memancing sejak kecil. Hobi maupun kegemarannya ini dia peroleh dari ayahnya yang juga sangat gemar untuk berburu dan memancing. Namun ketika sang ayah terkena serangan stroke, hobi memancing sang ayah harus berhenti. Hal ini dikarenakan stroke telah menyebabkan tangan ayahnya menjadi tidak berfungsi, sehingga sangat mustahil untuk dapat memegang alat pancing apalagi untuk memancing seperti biasanya. Oleh karena itu, Royal Barton memiliki ide untuk membuat sebuah alat pancing yang bisa digunakan untuk orang-orang yang memiliki keterbatasan secara fisik, dimana alat pancing ini nantinya diproyeksikan tidak hanya dapat digunakan oleh sang ayah tetapi juga oleh orang-orang yang tidak beruntung yang memiliki keterbatasan fisik lainnya. Setelah menghabiskan biaya yang tidak sedikit serta waktu bertahun-tahun untuk mewujudkan cita-citanya membuat alat pancing yang dapat digunakan oleh sang ayah dan orang-orang yang memiliki keterbatasan fisik, akhirnya Royal Barton menemukan sebuah alat yang dapat menjadikan alat pancing tradisional menjadi alat pancing elektrik. Alat temuannya ini berdimensi kecil sehingga dapat dibawa kemana-mana serta mempunyai berbagai aplikasi yang luar biasa. Paragraf-paragraf di atas merupakan penggalan studi kasus yang akan kita bahas. Dan berikut ini adalah pertanyaan-pertanyaan yang muncul dari studi kasus......

...and present the possibility of further human development on earth. » Did you know that bees pollinate the majority of our fruits and vegetables? > Global Research of CA has found that just within the last five years, “30% of the national bee population has disappeared and nearly a third of all bee colonies in the U.S. have perished.” (Statistic, Global Research Of California) • Bees are going extinct at this high rate due to climate change, pesticides, diseases, and parasites. > Honeybees and the other pollinators have the invaluable job of pollinating that provides us with “approximately one-third of everything we eat!” according to OneGreenPlanet.org (Statistic, Tucker) • Yet we still take advantage and continue to let their population decline. » Today I will be talking about how pollination works, the benefits bees have on our world, and what people are doing to prevent the decline of the bee population any further. Transition: The most important thing that bees do is pollinate. Pollination is needed for plants to reproduce, and so many plants depend on bees as pollinators. (Explanation) Body #1 » When a bee comes to collect nectar and pollen from the flower of a plant, some pollen sticks to the hairs of their bodies. > When the bee travels to the next flower, some of the pollen, on its body, is rubbed off and fertilization is made possible. » Plants rely on bees and other insects to reproduce, so they have adapted to become more attractive to them. > Bees......

Springer Controller SUBJECT: Revisions to OMB Circular A-123, Management’s Responsibility for Internal Control OMB Circular No. A-123 defines management's responsibility for internal control in Federal agencies. A re-examination of the existing internal control requirements for Federal agencies was initiated in light of the new internal control requirements for publicly-traded companies contained in the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002. Circular A-123 and the statute it implements, the Federal Managers’ Financial Integrity Act of 1982, are at the center of the existing Federal requirements to improve internal control. This circular reflects policy recommendations developed by a joint committee of representatives from the Chief Financial Officer Council (CFOC) and the President’s Council on Integrity and Efficiency (PCIE). The policy changes in this circular are intended to strengthen the requirements for conducting management’s assessment of internal control over financial reporting. The circular also emphasizes the need for agencies to integrate and coordinate internal control assessments with other internal control-related activities. The revised circular is...

...According to all known laws of aviation, there is no way a bee should be able to fly. Its wings are too small to get its fat little body off the ground.

Honey Bee

...Drones are produced from unfertilized eggs and therefore represent only the DNA of the queen that laid the eggs, i.e. have only a mother. Workers and queens result from fertilized eggs and therefore have both a mother and a father. A modified form of Parthenogenesis controls sex differentiation. The sex Allele is Polymorphic and so long as two different variants are present, a female bee results. If both sex alleles are identical, diploid drones are produced. Honeybees detect and destroy diploid drones after the eggs hatch. Queens typically mate with multiple drones on more than one mating flight. Once mated, they lay eggs and fertilize them as needed from sperm stored in the Spermatheca. Since the number of sex alleles is limited - about 18 are known in Apis - there is a high probability that a queen will mate with one or more drones having sex alleles identical with one of the sex alleles in the queen. It is therefore typical for a queen to produce a percentage of diploid drone eggs. [edit]Micrapis Apis florea and Apis andreniformis are small honey bees of southern and southeastern Asia. They make very small, exposed nests in trees and shrubs. Their stings are often incapable of penetrating human skin, so the hive and swarms can be handled with minimal protection. They occur largely sympatrically though they are very distinct evolutionarily and are probably the result of allopatric speciation, their distribution later converging. Given that A. florea is more widely......

Now in a lily-cup, and now Setting a jacinth bell a-swing, In his wandering; Sit closer love: it was here I throw I made that vow, Swore that two lives should be like one As long as the sea-gull loved the sea, As long as the sunflower sought the sun,-- It shall be, I said, for eternity 'Twixt you and me! Dear friend, those times are over and done, Love's web is spun. Look upward where the poplar trees Sway and sway in the summer air, Here in the valley never a breeze Scatters the thistledown, but there Great winds blow fair From the mighty murmuring mystical seas, And the wave-lashed leas. Look upward where the white gull screams, What does it see that we do not see? Is that a star? or the lamp that gleams On some outward voyaging argosy,-- Ah! can it be We have lived our lives in a land of dreams! How sad it seems. Sweet, there is nothing left to say But this, that love is never lost, Keen winter stabs the breasts of May Whose crimson roses burst his frost, Ships tempest-tossed Will find a harbour in some bay, And so we may. And there is nothing left to do But to kiss once again, and part, Nay, there is nothing...
