...Staci M. Harris February 13, 2012 SPEED and YOU Speed is important but in my opinion you must master the task first, then you can find ways that allow you to be fast and efficient. I do have areas in my life in which I think I could improve my speed and that would be to stop procrastinating and become more punctual, that’s with my personal life I am never on time for anything. On my job I think I have my skills mastered so speed is of no big concern. Yes I feel guilty when I have to rush and that’s prioritizing speed on many levels, getting ready, driving, just an all the way round tense situation. The areas in my life were I feel the greatest time crunch would be in my personal life with family events, church, I am not able to get there on time. But I am able to get to work on time but I think it’s only because I know there are consequences for being tardy. And with a family event it’s to flexible and no hard consequences to face. Oh yes I always feel guilty because you interrupt the service and there’s always something that you miss and then my stress level increase. How I have learned to handle time crunch is considering all the people involved and how I would react. So I now have learned to not procrastinate and plan ahead. The area in my life in which I was always afraid to speed up was doing paper work to quickly, I would then have to sacrifice my leisure time. The way I can speed up with my paper work would be to do some every day and not leave it all for one day. Too......

The Light

...Light Is this the light at the end of the tunnel? I wait like a lion waits for a prey to eat, when you look in my direction my feelings reach a peak. I sit in silence sadly staring waiting to see your face. SIGH, I wish you weren't such perfection. We fight and argue. I sit like a statue as you speak harsh words, you are a fire breathing dragon and I am a donkey. I act like I dont care and POOF! your gone, im now heartbroken singing my sad somber song. Is this the light at the end of the tunnel? You come right back, you make me laugh, you make me cry, I wish this was as easy as pie. Your like a mathematical equation, I want to figure you out, but your complication doesn't let me have concentration. A roller coaster is what our ''relationship'' is. Our love speaks a language that most people don't understand, it has its flaws, most beautiful things do, I wouldn't kick our relationship like a old pair of shoes for something new. Is this the light at the end of the tunnel? Waiting for you is similair to sleeping for 1,000 years expecting to not drool when you realize its time to wake up. My feelings are deeper then the ocean although, they cause various fights that make you want to leave and take a hike. When we agree, which is almost never I can't help but to hope that its not a joke. We agree to disagree. You are the barking dog and I am the aggrevating flea. I dislike when your around but, I can't help to miss you when I'm...

...The Importance of Reading I had an epiphany about reading and it changed my life. It was a day only several years ago when I first realized the numerous benefits I could realize from reading. Of course, I had been told all my life that reading was important. I was forced to do it in class after class beginning in elementary school and on up through high school. I had never read for enjoyment, had never gone to a book store and surveyed the stacks of tomes with pleasure, had never been to the library except when it was required for researching a particular assignment. To me reading was drudgery, a chore which interfered with more important things in life, like eating and sleeping. It wasn’t until I took an English class in my senior year, however, that the importance of reading finally penetrated my brain. I realized my teacher for that English class, Mrs. Smith, was different from others I’d had in the past from the first day I walked into her classroom. While she looked like a typical, older lady with her graying hair and pair of wire-rimmed reading glasses continually perched on the end of her nose, it was her attitude that set her apart from other instructors. From her roost atop a stool at the front of the room, Mrs. Smith ruled the classroom with short legs swinging to and fro above the rungs while her arms – complete with flabby “schoolteacher arm” – would wave about to lend emphasis to her words. Mrs. Smith could tell I was uncomfortable in......

...University of Phoenix Material Reading Comprehension Worksheet Respond to the following in 50 to 100 words each: Describe your outcome from this week’s MyFoundationsLab® assignment. I was a little anxious when it came time to do MyFoundationsLab assignment. Anytime I have to complete an assignment that involves watching videos I get really nervous. My attention span isn’t that long and if the videos are really “cheesy” I won’t want to watch the videos. My outcome from this week’s MyFoundationsLab assignment grade was a 90. I did better then I thought I would do. For the reading and comprehension strategies that they discussed I already do them when I read. I think that’s why I scored really good on the test that was given. Identify the skills you’ve learned this week. How could each of these apply to your academic work? How could each of these apply to your professional work? With the skills I learned this week I can apply them to my academic work by using them. When it comes to reading I really suck at it. It’s hard for me to concentrate no matter the strategies I try. My mind starts to wander instead of concentrating on what I’m reading. The way I can improve this is by making sure I give myself enough time to read and making sure I have all my supplies I will need when reading so I don’t have to stop. I will also try to clear my mind of clutter so that I can concentrate and focus Describe the reading and comprehension......

Retelling is the ability to read or listen to a story, then summarize it in paraphrased form. Children begin learning the basics of retelling in kindergarten where teachers start to informally assess the students' overall understanding of a story. Retelling is a useful assessment tool throughout school because it can measure simple to advanced comprehension, as well as help the students improve their listening and speaking skills. Instructions 1. Review retelling strategy. Model it again for those who may struggle. Read a short story aloud to the class, then summarize the important details in the correct sequence. Write each summarizing statement on chart paper. Number the statements so students understand how to retell in the order that events happened. 2. Choose an instructional level text, like a short story from a reading book or a chapter from a novel, that is leveled for......

...March 2011 Lighting: The Way it Affects a Movie Set Lights! Lights! And More Lights! While on a movie set for any show, cinematographers are artists that paint motion pictures with light (Murphy 1). They must know that lighting is their main concern while in production. No matter if there is too much or too little lighting, lighting must always be controlled (Morales). In order to solve the problem of faulty lighting, cinematographers should know when lights should be used, where it should be placed, and who it should be focused on; therefore, they must communicate with the director and the lighting engineer at all times because the lighting sets the mood for the image (Morales). There are many techniques that a cinematographer works with and people wonder how. An example is that most people wonder how cinematographers control their lighting while indoors when the subject is placed by a window. If subject is in front of a window and there is too much sunlight, take some aluminum foil wrapped around a piece of cardboard and turn it towards the subject so the light will reflect on the person face which will act as a key or filled light. If there is another light around, put it a little closer to subject and the reflected light will act as the backlight to make it seem as three-point lighting (“Lighting Tricks and Solutions”). The need for this type of lighting is to make the subject’s face is clear and visible. If the light from the window is shinning on the subject too......

...EJELE BSE-I Cognitive Factors That Affect Reading Comprehension Reading comprehension refers to the ability of a reader to construct meaning from text. Expected levels of reading comprehension vary throughout a reader's lifespan. When children first learn to read, the emphasis is on understanding the meaning of words and how they form sentences to communicate simple ideas. As children grow into adults, reading comprehension grows to include semantic and symbolic understanding of written text. 1. Decoding and Word Recognition Speed * One cognitive factor that can affect reading comprehension is the speed at which the reader decodes and recognizes words. Decoding refers to the reader's ability to make sense of letter-sound relationships, including proper word pronunciation and noticing common letter combinations, in order to quickly recognize familiar words. Readers who experience difficulty with decoding and recognizing words read at a much slower pace and find it more difficult to comprehend the meaning of reading passages than their peers without decoding difficulties. Vocabulary * Vocabulary breadth can also have an impact on reading comprehension. Readers use decoding skills to figure out the pronunciation and approximate meaning of words they haven't seen before, but this process takes far more time than recognition of a familiar word. Individuals with a wider vocabulary can interpret the meaning of reading passages faster and more thoroughly than......

Speed and Progress

...In Social Time: The Heartbeat of Culture by Robert Levine with Ellen Wolff, author talked about different time senses in different countries and he shared his personal experience of different time senses in the article. After reading this article , one sentence got all my attention: “ Speed is frequently confused with progress”( page81,line3). For me, my parents and grandparents always warn me that time waits for no man, so I should finish things I need to do as soon as possible. Sometimes I can get really confused that do I really have to be that hurry? Can I slow myself down to finish something? So, when I saw this sentence, I really want to know if speed is progress. However, a question is not always wind up with a right answer or a wrong answer. We all know that time flies. As an old saying goes, “Time flies like an arrow , and time lost never returns.” Our life time is limited, but things we can experience in the world is unlimited. Faster we are, more meaningful things we can try. So, In many people’s opinion, speed definitely is progress. In the article, author shared his experience teaching in a Brazil college. Student there go to class around half an hour late and leave the class around half an hour late too, which means they are being late to do next thing for one hour or more. Nowadays, our life is so wonderful but very challenging at the same time. As a college student in the US, if i dont finish my work on time, I am not gonna get good grades. And if I am......

...os Angeles SWAT officers Jack Traven and Harry Temple thwart an attempt by a bomber to hold an elevator full of people for ransom. They corner the bomber, but he grabs Harry. Jack shoots Harry in the leg, forcing the bomber to release him. He turns and runs around a corner, apparently dying in an explosion. Jack and Harry are praised by their superior, Lieutenant "Mac" McMahon. Later, Jack sees a city bus explode. The bomber contacts him, explaining that a similar bomb is rigged on another bus, and will get activated if it goes over 50 miles per hour (80 km/h) and blow up when the speed drops below 50. The bomber demands a larger ransom and says he will set off the bomb if passengers are offloaded. Jack races through traffic and manages to board the moving bus. However, it is already going over 50: the bomb is armed. Jack explains the situation to the driver, Sam, but then a panicked small-time criminal on the bus, fearing Jack is going to arrest him, fires his gun, wounding Sam. Passenger Annie Porter takes Sam's place behind the wheel while Jack explains the situation to everyone aboard. Jack examines the bomb under the bus and phones Harry, who uses clues to identify the bomber as a former police officer. The police clear a route for the bus to a closed-down freeway. Mac insists they offload the passengers onto a pacing flatbed truck, but Jack warns about the bomber's demands. The bomber allows the officers to offload the injured Sam, but detonates an explosive under the...

The Reading

...Reading Reading, like writing helps come to ‘know’, to compose meaning. In college, reading assignment assume that you have to read critically. A critical reader reads with a questioning mind, open to new ideas but careful to recognize when information is distorted because it is incomplete. A critical reader also recognizes when material is slanted to manipulate the reader improperly, or is based on incorrect information. If you understand the reading process, you can effectively meet the demands of critical reading. Did you ever ask yourself the question “Why is reading important?” but I can sure that your heart have answered in favor on reading. Reading is like providing the mind with nourishment. Knowledge is the food for the mind and soul. Apart from giving us the basic information about the world around us, it also provides us with the food for thought. It encourages us to think. It increases our hunger for knowledge and our thirst to learn more. During the archaic, reading was limited to books. But for nowadays, encompasses reading on the web. We have some very good sites providing their readers with reliable information. . Reading from the Internet is an easy option for one and all. Reading from the web does not undermine the cheerful one can get from reading books. We are introductory to the thought of reading at a very early age. It remains with us in different forms throughout our life. School-life starts with books. Books are our close companions in the youth....

Neutrino Particles Found to Break the Speed of Light

...Running head: NEUTRINO PARTICLES 1 Neutrino Particles Found to Break the Speed of Light Andrew Alexander Cuesta Lynn University NEUTRINO PARTICLES 2 Neutrino Particles Found to Break the Speed of Light Recently, a discovery that may revolutionize modern science was made in Europe. Modern age technologies have allowed for scientists to experiment through trial and error their most desired curiosities. Throughout history man has immensely improved his capability of speed and longed to reach the greatest velocity in the universe, the speed of light! Researchers and Scientist working for OPERA (Oscillation Project with Emulsion-Racking Apparatus) recorded particles traveling faster than the speed of light of 299,792,458 meters per second. These ghostly subatomic particles are what scientist call neutrinos and they were evidently recorded traveling at 299,798,454 meters per second, which is faster than the speed of light by 20 parts per million. These experiments and tests were done in the physics laboratory in central Italy, under the mountain of Gran Sasso, and conducted about 15,000 times all with the same results. The results were neutrinos arriving 60 billionths of a second earlier with an error margin of plus or minus 10 billionths of a second. They experimented for three years before making public this amazing discovery on September 22, 2011. To have a better understanding, one must first be familiar with some basics of physics. Neutrinos are electrically......
