Over forty million adults in the U.S.A suffer from an anxiety disorder such as depression. Throughout time, people have had the same or similar feelings and concerns, and there have been many songs written about the feelings of the depressed. “Paint it Black” is one of these songs and it depicts a man who has lost his love. Also “Candle in the Wind” talks about Marilyn Monroe who was depressed to the point of suicide. “Eleanor Rigby” shows a women and pastor who are lonely. These three songs express how someone can be lonely in a world full of people.

"Paint it Black" by the Rolling Stones shows a man who is lonely in a world full of people. The word choice of "black" throughout the song emphasizes many emotions such as depression, loneliness and the desire to be left alone.
"I see a red door and I want it painted black", (1) "I see girls walk by dressed in their summer clothes" (3) and " I see a line of cars and their all painted black" (5) all relate a man talking in first person walking down the road wanting everything to be as sad and dark as he feels inside. The line "with flowers and my love both never to come back" (6) could be one of the most touching parts to this song and gives us a reason for this mans sadness, his love is gone. Shows that the amazement that most feel for the world is no longer felt by him (8). " I look inside myself and see my heart is black" (9) demonstrates the acknowledgment of the death of his emotions. He says " maybe i'll fade away and not have to face the fact" (11) restates the loss of his love. " I could not foresee this thing happening to you" (14) reflects that in some way this man feels responsible for what has happened to the girl he loves, and that he lacks control over the world around him. Line 15 and 16 use beautiful and descriptive language while “I want to see the sun blotted out of the sky” (23) shows more…...

...will need to make candles in a safe manner The first thing you will need is something to melt your wax in. Some people believe you should only use the double boiler method to melt wax. The double boiler method is the safest way to melt wax but it is also the slowest. There are a few ways to melt your wax for making candles, and we'll discuss those so you can decide which way is best for you. One thing I will warn you is to never melt wax on your stove unless you are using the double boiler method. Never melt wax on or in anything that does not have some form of temperature control because wax does have a flash point and will burst into flames without warning once it reaches that point. Depending on the wax the flash point may be between 290 - 380 degrees. Always be safe when you make candles. You don't have to have an expensive wax melter to make great candles either. I recommend you purchase a Presto "Kitchen Kettle" from your local hardware or Walmart store. I've seen them in just about every Walmart I've ever been in and they're only about $20.00! Just be sure you are getting the "Kitchen Kettle" there are many variations but the Kitchen Kettle comes with a numerical temperature gauge. Never melt wax in anything that doesn't have a numerical temperature gauge. Don't ever use anything with just high, medium and low settings. The next thing you will need is a good thermometer. You need to use this with your kitchen kettle to ensure a proper candle wax......

...Bottom paints and bottom paints for boats Bottom paint is a covering applied to the lowermost point of a ship (hull) so as to get rid of growing organisms that may attach to the boat especially at the lower parts or to protect the metallic parts of the hull from corrosion. This is done to enhance the vessel's performance and sturdiness. Another added advantage is the improved contact between a free flow mass of water and the hull of a speedy boat enabling the boat to sail at a much faster speed. Modern bottom paints are composed of biocides (chemical substance that hamper growth of marine organisms), organotin compounds and lethal copper. Types of bottom paints SPC (Self polishing copolymers). It contains a resin known as SPC Copolymer. The chemical substance reacts with salt water and the result is the discharge of biocides in the entire life span of the bottom paint. The reaction takes place at any circumstance provided the vessel is in contact with salt water. Controlled Solubility Copolymers These types of bottom paints are partly soluble in water meaning it wears down when water passes across the exterior of the paint. The thickness of the paint reduces at a controlled pace resulting in the release of fresh biocide at the surface of the paint during its active working period. Ablative bottom paints A type of bottom paint that wears away with time when in use hence reducing the preparation and preservation needed when applying more bottom......

The Holland House Candles Inc. is the company making these elaborate candles. Each candle has to be done in 15 minutes or the wax will be come to cool to carve. Once started, the artist will quickly and efficiently make a beautiful decorative candle. At the beginning of the process the candle maker starts by dipping the wax base into the hot wax. Each time the candle maker dips the base into the wax they have to then dip it in water to seal the color of wax and ensure that the candle is staying the temperature needed to finish and sculpt the candle. Once the candle is finished with the wax, the candle maker then cuts off the base and sculpts a mushroom candle out of it, so there is no waste. The candle maker then starts sculpting the candle. Once this process starts the candle maker only has 15 minutes before the candle becomes to cool to sculpt. She uses the cookie cutter like tool to dig out some of the middle to ensure the candle burns down the middle and not over the edges ruining the design. Then, the candle maker uses a hot pan to melt the bottom of the candle to make an even bottom to apply the company sticker. Once......

Homemade Candle

...Chapter I Homemade Candle Cereus I. Introduction As early as the biblical times, the presence of candles is already mentioned. The first candles were made of flax thread coated with wax and pitch. Palm oil, bees wax, coconut oil, and olive oil are also used to produce these candles during the olden times. But as time passes by, there were changes that took place in candles. Not only on its appearance, but also in the materials being used to produce one. Up to the present, candles are still being used by every household and can be considered as a necessity. Knowing that a candle is a necessity for every household, researchers looked for ways to produce a candle which is cheap and at the same time environment friendly. The researchers aim to produce a product which has same quality and efficiency as commercially produced candles. Not only will it save the environment, but also the people who will be able to save money. A. Background of the Study 1. Why was the study conducted?

Yankee Candle

...their money on more. Therefore, being the leader in the market, Yankee Candle must establish their brand, expand retail and wholesale networks and introduce new fragrances. The company has a strong foundation and with its innovation, the only way to continue is by expanding. Opening more stores is a good idea for the company to continue building its brand recognition. Possibly appealing to a new target market could also be a route to take. Designing a line of products that would appeal to a younger market would be my suggestion. Perhaps even making the candles flameless, but not losing the uniqueness of the scents. Younger generations tend to like the innovation of flameless scents. Also, college dorms often do not allow candles because of fire hazards. Manufacturing flameless candles with the signature scents of YCC can eliminate this issue. Also, Aroma Naturals operates primarily as an online retailer; a good idea would be to open stores for this brand as well. I checked out their website and it is a very interesting theory of aromatherapy. “The therapeutic use of pure plant essential oils to bring well-being to both mind and body”, is an invigorating aspect to pursue. Many loyal customers of Yankee Candle value the authenticity of the product and the innovation of product development. After browsing through the Aroma Naturals website, I believe that this brand also has product innovation. Yankee Candle employed the use of multichannel distribution to gain success in the......

Wind Tunnel

...~~~Concept of Wind-tunnel~~~ Wind tunnels date back to the 1870’s. Scientists realized it didn’t matter if an object was stationary and air was blown was over the object or if the object was moving through the air. The resultant forces over the object would be the same. The idea of blowing air over an object and determining the forces lead to the invention of wind tunnel. As the name suggests, a wind-tunnel is a cylindrical tunnel in which air is blown from one side by a huge fan at high speeds. The middle part of the tunnel is called as throat. It is the place where the test model is placed. Various sensors are attached to the test model and the data is collected in the room near it. The data collected issued to reduce the aerodynamic drag and minimize fuel consumption and also increase the speed of the cars, trucks, planes, etc. also aerodynamic properties like lift, drag, forces, moments are measured with the use of wind-tunnel. In wind-tunnel air is blown over the test model which is kept stationary at the throat. This will produce the same effect as it would be produced if the vehicle is moving at high speeds on a road. For more accurate results the tunnel is sometimes equipped with rolling road to prevent the boundary layer forming on the floor which may affect the test results. * What are wind tunnels? Just as its name suggests, a wind tunnel is a tube or tunnel that has man-made windblown through it at a certain speed. Scientists and engineers put...

Eleanor Rigby

...Professor Wilson September 6, 2015 “Eleanor Rigby” This song was written for many purposes in my opinion. I can see numerous themes as I read through the lyrics. The first theme that I noticed is the literal meaning. I could evaluate this from the very first line of the song. It states, “ah look at all the lonely people” (Beatles). Literally, I interpret this as meaning that there are many lonely people in this world. People who have no one to share their lives with but also people who choose to keep all their feelings inside of them. These lonely people shelter themselves from others emotionally and won’t let anyone get the chance to know them. I have seen this quite often growing up. I feel as if The Beatles may have been referring to both of these types of people: physically alone and emotionally drawn people. I believe that there are more meanings to the lyrics in this song though. I can see this song referring to religion as well. This song states that, “Father McKenzie, writing the words of a sermon that no one will hear no one comes near” and “no one was saved” (Beatles). I feel as if a powerful message is said here to the religious listeners of this song. Do I think this song is attacking the religious values of some? That might possibly be the case, however, I can see the argument in an array of spectrums. Lastly, a theme that stood out to me is when the song stated, “wearing the face that she keeps in a jar by the door” (Beatles). I think that some......

Eleanor Roosevelt Life and Leadership

...Eleanor Roosevelt and Leadership The Early Years Anna Eleanor Roosevelt was born on October 11, 1884 in New York City, New York. Although economically comfortable, her family was very distressed. Elliot Roosevelt, her father, was an alcoholic and was frequently troubled with mental depression. Elliot was also away from the home frequently for business, pleasure or medical treatment; Eleanor’s father entered a sanitarium for alcoholics when she was just a child. Her mother, Anna Hall Roosevelt, was very concerned with keeping the family’s high class reputation in society and as years passed she became very disconsolate trying to balance her responsibilities (Encyclopedia of World Biography, 1998). Eleanor recognized the tension and problems in her family at a young age, taking much of the responsibility for her mother’s unhappiness. Eleanor cared so much for her mother, yet she was embarrassed by Eleanor’s homeliness and continually reminded her of her lack of beauty. Her mother even went as far as to give her nicknames, such as “Granny” for being plain and lacking beauty. When Eleanor was eight years old, her mother passed away, starting the theme of death that she would endure throughout her childhood. Eleanor and her younger brothers went to live in New York with their maternal grandmother. Not long after moving to her grandmother’s home, Eleanor received the news that her older brother had passed away. Shortly before Eleanor was ten, she learned that her father, too...

Candle Making

...CANDLE MAKING LEAFLET NO. A531 Candle Making Margaret Bass Introduction In the past, candles were made from beeswax obtained from the honeycombs of bees or tallow produced from the suet of beef, pork, lamb etc. Nowadays candlemakers generally use candlewax blends based on paraffin wax and stearin to make candles. Beeswax is sometimes used today, but it is scarce and expensive. This booklet will explain the basic principles of candlemaking. Once mastered, the creative possibilities are limitless, and you will be able to make your own unique candles. Materials required for Candle Making Good quality paraffin wax. Wicking. Moulds. Stearin. (This is sold in the form of powdery white crystals. It is added to melted paraffin wax to make the candle more opaque. It makes white candles white, and improves the brightness of coloured candles. It also raises the melting point of wax so that the candles do not bend or sag, and it improves the burning quality of the candle). Mould sealer. Dyes. Perfume. (Not essential). Fig. 1 Page 2 Equipment required for Candle Making • • • • • Two pans, one larger than the other. Thermometer, reading to at least 100°C. Bucket or plastic bowl. (Not essential). Hammer. Newspapers, knives, scissors, spoons, old jug, saucepans. Heat source. Although domestic heating rings can be used, electric pots with thermostatic control are available, either of the 'water-jacket' or water-less type. Care and Safety The same care MUST be......

Beeswax Candles

...This paper presents a life cycle assessment of beeswax candles in the effort to confirm that beeswax candles are more sustainable and environmentally friendly than other comparable variations. Various types of candles are burned every year by millions of consumers; the United States Environmental Protection Agency reports that candle and incense sales exceeded a million dollars in 1999 (Knight, Levin, & Mendenhall, 2001). Beeswax candles, however, are one of the few sustainable and environmentally friendly types of candles available to consumers. Through the exploration of how the collection beeswax affects bees, the energy used and pollution created through candle production and transportation, and the effects burning candles and their disposal have on the environment, a thorough life cycle assessment will support the claim that beeswax candles are the most sustainable and environmentally friendly candle available on the market. To support the aforementioned claims, the environmental effects of other types of candles will be compared to those of beeswax candles. The collection of beeswax can be traced back millions of years and these traditional ways of beekeeping are still used today (Bradbear, 2009, p.1). Breadbear describes that beekeepers have found that the end of a flowering season is the best time of the year to harvest the honey (2009, p. 42). She explains more thoroughly, The honeycomb can be simply cut into pieces and sold as fresh, cut comb honey.......
