Daystar In response to the daily struggle of a mother in the pursuit to find time of her own, Rita Dove, twentieth century poetry, wrote the poem “Daystar.” As a mother you not only struggle to find quiet time, but you also struggle to find personal redemption for all the daily tasks we complete for our families. In the tittle alone “Daystar” we find ourselves invisible to those we take care of regularly. Just like stars during the day, invisible to us due to the sun, our actions are invisible to others because many feel that it is not only our job but our obligation to take care of others. Dove uses descriptive words to allow us to sympathize with the character, also taking us visually through her words of a typical afternoon of a busy mother. Dove starts the poem with the number one struggle for all mothers, quiet time. “She wanted a little room for thinking” (1) searching for a quiet place to melt into your surroundings is all anyone needs to recharge, get your head straight. “But saw the diapers steaming on the line” (2) while attempting to find personal serenity, the first sight was one of her daily chores looking back at her. “A doll slumped behind the door” (3) this is yet another reminder of something she has to pick up and put away. She decides to find a place where there is no reminder of what her days consist of. “So she lugged a chair behind the garage” (4) “to sit out the children’s naps.” (5) Her lugging the chair is an example of the exhaustion she must feel and this is just the middle of her day. She continues to talk about some of the peaceful and interesting things she watches while she is seeking her quiet time. “Sometimes there were things to watch” (6) “the pinched armor of a vanished cricket” (7) “a floating maple leaf. Other days” (8) “she stared until she was assured” (9) when she closed her eyes” (10) “she’d see only her own…...

...DAYSTAR UNIVERSITY An assignment IN PARTIAL FULFILLMENT TO THE COURSE ACS 431 Presented by: Gladys Mumbua (10-1809) Submitted to MR FREDRICK OGOR FIREWALLS A firewall is a device that serves as a barrier between networks providing access control, traffic filtering and other security features. Firewalls are commonly deployed between trusted and untrusted networks, for example between the Internet (untrusted) and an organization’s trusted private various network. They [firewalls] can also be used internally to segment an organization’s network infrastructure, for example; deploying a firewall between the traffic was received to determining whether the corporate financial information and the rest of the company network. A firewall can either be software-based or hardware-based and is used to help keep a network secure. Its primary objective is to control the incoming and outgoing network traffic by analyzing the data packets and determining whether it should be allowed through or not, based on a predetermined rule set. A network's firewall builds a bridge between an internal network that is assumed to be secure and trusted, and another network, usually an external (inter)network, such as the Internet, that is not assumed to be secure and trusted. Hardware based firewalls: Hardware firewalls are exactly what the name implies; hardware device that is placed somewhere in the traffic flow of an organization’s network. Once in place, the device receives and analyzes......

...1975). Lighting-level criticism could also result from the simulated or real daylight dimming systems keeping a constant workplace illumination. A study by Begemann, vad den Beld, and Tener (1996) concluded that these dimming systems are too simplistic to meet human preference and response. However, a different study found that employees in one daylit building are willing to accept the glare because of the overall building quality (Bryan 1998). 6. Daylighting in Schools School children and teachers can benefit from integrating and managing daylight properly. Reported benefits include reduced utility costs for school districts, improved student attendance and academic performance, and a less stressful environment for students. A Daystar article, “Benefits of Natural Daylighting” (1998), states that there is increased student and teacher attendance, increased achievement rates, reduced fatigue factors, improved student health, and enhancement of general development. Furthermore, natural lighting eliminates noise and flickering from electric light sources and provides the best quality of light available in classrooms, gymnasiums, and corridors. Other research has shown that students in windowless classrooms are more hostile, hesitant, and maladjusted. Also, students in windowless classrooms tend to be less interested in their work and complain more. Health Daylight has physiological and psychological benefits for teachers and students.
