After I read the first short story The disposable rocket , we especially a men must be proud of the physical advantages that we have than a women. Although sometimes we often very slack but basically a men with his advantages and disadvantages that he have are still better and superior than a women. As the story said, “we (male bodies) were made for combat.” So this statement strengthens the superior of men.
Besides that, I think this short story is about how we are showed by the authors that people with a men gender are a right person to do anything in this world than women. More power and stronger than women make a men more appropriate to do an activity which is need stamina, power, and intelligent such as spaces mission and as this story said “his body is like a delivery rocket that falls away in space, and put their bodies at risk to experience the release from gravity”.
But in the second story The Chrysanthemums, honestly I cannot understand what the point of view from this story is. But maybe I think The Chrysanthemums is reflected about a simple life of a couple Henry and Elisa in the countryside away from hullabaloo of the world and both can be fill their roles well as a husband and wife.
Moreover, if I connect the first story with this story and if we talk about gender, that Elisa is a strong woman who has a same position or capacity with a man. For example in this story Henry and Elisa almost have a same job as Henry is a farmers and Elisa is a gardener especially Chrysanthemum flower. Not only about the same position between man and woman but also this story tells us about a woman can be a hard worker and diligent too as a man like Elisa.
But still there is showed that a job who cannot be doing by a women. Such as fix all the garden tools and went around the outlying place like the service agency who ride a wagon.
Besides that, when she was told…...

Israel Mobilizes as Rockets Target Jerusalem

...Israel Mobilizes as Rockets Target Jerusalem Joe Blow September 10, 1999 DFR/777 Don’t use this web site for your term papers. Its cheating. Israel's military stepped up its mobilizations for a possible ground invasion of the Gaza Strip on Friday after Palestinian rockets struck near Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, as neighboring Egypt escalated its own war of words against Israel. Late Friday, Israel's cabinet approved the call-up of 75,000 Israeli reservists, more than doubling the number authorized the previous day. Heavy armor and soldiers from two elite brigades continued to mass at staging grounds on the Gaza border. A decision to launch a ground invasion could come within 24 to 36 hours if rocket fire continues, Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon told CNN on Friday "They don't call up all these reserves to keep people standing in the stands watching," said a senior Israeli military official. "After rockets on Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, it's pretty hard not to" order a ground invasion. For three hours on Friday, Egyptian Prime Minister Hisham Qandil visited the Gaza Strip and stood hand-in-hand with leaders of Hamas, the militant and political group that rules Gaza. Coming after two days of Israeli strikes there, it was a bold show of support for Hamas from Cairo as well as a diplomatic gambit to gain a break in the fighting. Israel had pledged to hold its fire during Mr. Qandil's visit. But rockets from the Palestinian territory could be heard taking off......

Rocket Soup Case

...calculated by dividing Category Volume by Category Dollars). Total sales volume had significantly increased when either Rocket Soup or competitors (or both) offer low price for promotion. In other words, soup consumption is relatively elastic to price, meaning that customers are highly sensitive to price. See below graphs showing the inverse relationship between the total volumes sold and average price of soups. Category Volume sold in Week 1 to 40 Average Soup Price in Week 1 to 40 (b) Total Spending Sales pattern in terms of total spending follows the pattern observed in total volume section. One notable difference is that the total spending per week is relatively more concentrated closer to the average total spending in 40 weeks (5,263), meaning it is not as elastic as the volume. It means that customers may purchase more soups when the price is lower, but does not dramatically increase their total spending, even if the price is very low. It can also be observed that the total spending (or revenue) does increase when the total volume sold are relatively larger, with the exception of week 12, where Rocket Soup charged unbelievably low price (0.04). (c) Competition Another notable pattern is that the sales volume of Rocket Soup is significantly affected by competitors’ price and sales volume. When Rocket Soup offers cheaper price, the sales volume of Rocket Soup increases and competitors temporarily lose market share, and vice versa. It would represent......

What I did in the experiment was adding an initial amount of water (100 ml) to the rocket and measuring the distance the rocket travelled. After taking down the results I repeated the experiment in an effort to find out which value of water was the optimum amount, required to make it fly the furthest, I came to the conclusion that it was 120 millilitres, which made the rocket fly 25.97 meters. My initial hypothesis of the experiment was that the more water that I added to the rocket, the......

...versus Single Stage Model Rocket Flight Comparison I tested my hypothesis that a multi-stage fueled rocket would fly substantially higher than the same type of rocket loaded with single-stage fuel. I expected the engine thrust in the first stage to be expended, and the extra weight of the first fuel stage to drop away. Then weighing much less, the rocket would continue even higher with the second stage providing a new second thrust. I conducted the experiment in the following steps: Step 1: Selected, purchase and assemble the rockets and launch pad. Step 2: Conducted a functions test of the fuel cartridge igniter Step 3: Selected a safe outdoor area for the test, and ensured the area was clear of people not involved in the test. Step 4: Set up the rocket launch pad and fuel cartridge igniter in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions. Step 5: Separately launched both rockets, and simultaneously determined the maximum apogee of each by using the rocket peak altitude measurement instrument. * The altitude measurement instrument determined the maximum angle from the observer’s position to the rocket at its peak (apogee) and the parachute ejects. * The rocket with the highest flight was measured with a higher angle. The Independent variables in this experiment were that I loaded the first rocket with a......

...SIXTH GRADE BOTTLE ROCKET LAB THIRD TRIMESTER LAB REPORT Objective: During the completion of this activity, you will demonstrate science processing skills, an ability to use technological design, and an ability to identify factors that affect motion and forces. Background Information: Bottle rockets are excellent devices for investigating "Newton's Three Laws of Motion": 1st Law - A rocket will remain on the launch pad until an unbalanced force is exerted, propelling the rocket upward. 2nd Law - The amount of force depends upon how much air is pumped inside the rocket. You can increase the force further by adding a small amount of water, which increases the mass expelled by the air pressure in the rocket. 3rd Law - Finally, the action force of the air (and water) as it rushes out of the nozzle creates an equal and opposite reaction force propelling the rocket upward. Ask a Question? How can pressurized water and a soda bottle be used to build a rocket? Form a Hypothesis If a bottle rocket is filled with XXX ml of water using XXX psi of applied pressure, then it should reach an altitude of XXX meters. Water LevelLESS THAN 1000ml | PressureLESS THAN80 PSI | AltitudeLESS THAN300 Meters | Procedure Materials 2 L Soda Bottle with cap Foam Board Modeling Clay Poster Board Duct Tape Scissors Water Bucket Rocket Launcher Altimeter *Remove or add materials that do/do not apply to “your” experiment.* Conduct an Experiment 1.

Houston Rockets Offseason

...The Houston Rockets are planning a comprehensive evaluation of all facets of the organization at the end of this highly disappointing season that will put general manager Daryl Morey and interim coach J.B. Bickerstaff under the microscope, according to league sources. Sources told ESPN that the Rockets believe every aspect of the organization -- coaching staff, front office and, of course, their roster -- must be subject to a thorough review in the wake of Houston's slide to a 38-41 outfit that's at serious risk to miss the playoffs after damaging losses this week to Dallas and Phoenix. Houston won 56 games and reached the Western Conference finals last season. Rockets owner Leslie Alexander has publicly acknowledged that Bickerstaff -- who replaced Kevin McHale in an interim role just 11 games into this season -- would have to be assessed at season's end. Significant roster changes are likewise expected, with free agent-to-be Dwight Howard widely anticipated to move elsewhere and little certain beyond the Rockets' presumed intention to reload around star guard James Harden. Sources say Morey, whose contract runs through the 2017-18 season, ‎also faces some uncertainty in the wake of the Rockets' struggles. Morey's ever-bold approach to roster assembly won deserved kudos for bringing Harden (October 2012) and Howard (July 2013) to Houston in quick succession, but team chemistry has been a rising concern this season given the well-chronicled deterioration of the...

How Rockets Use Energy

...How Rockets use Energy Rockets use and convert energy many times while operating. First of all, energy is the ability to do work or to organize or change matter. That energy is what moves the rocket. But first the energy starts out in the rocket fuel, as chemical potential energy. Potential energy is stored energy that is in an object due to the positioning of its parts. In model rocket engines, the fuel is made out of pressed black powder. The fuel is stored in a cartridge, which gets placed in the bottom of the rocket. Chemical potential energy changes into heat when the engine is ignited, turning the potential energy into kinetic energy which is energy in the form of motion. Heat is kinetic energy because heat is how fast atoms in an object vibrate, which is motion. When the rocket fuel ignites, it expands. When the heat is created, the fuel becomes a gas and expands out the bottom of the rocket. The force pushing down pushes the rocket in the opposite direction, up. Isaac Newton’s 3rd law of motion explains this reaction: “Every action has an equal and opposite reaction.” That means that when you push down, you will go up. When the expanding gas pushes the rocket up, the gas loses energy, and the rocket gains kinetic energy. This is because a force that changes an object's motion gives that object energy. When a rocket engine starts firing, it starts accelerating, which causes it to gain more kinetic energy. When an object’s speed increases, its kinetic energy...

Water Rocket

...NPL Water Rocket Challenge 2015 Date: Wednesday 17th June 2015 Venue: National Physical Laboratory sports ground, TW11 0EB The Challenge The aim is to launch a rocket powered by water/air pressure and land it in designated target zones, whilst trying to earn additional bonus points by time of flight. Your score will be your time in the air plus bonus seconds gained from landing in target zones. People have tried using parachutes to achieve long flight times and whilst there will be a prize for the longest time in the air; these rockets tend to get caught by the wind and land outside the scoring zone resulting in a null score. You can find more details in the rules. (No changes from 2014 rules.) There will be two separate competitions; one for schools only (event venue open for equipment checking from 12.30pm, event starts 13:30 and ends 16:30) and an open competition (from 6pm until 9pm), for colleges, universities, businesses, youth clubs, NPL staff or anyone wishing to enter! Registration will be online at www.npl.co.uk/wrc  Teams are limited to 6 people; an adult must accompany and is responsible for each team.  For the schools event, priority will be given to one team per school. If space permits, more than one team may be allowed. However there is usually a high demand for places, so schools may like to run an internal selection competition or consider entering the Open event to guarantee a place.  Maybe you are not able to get a team together or......
