Paper assignment

Developing Social Imagination So with this Sociology project, I have watched and analyzed the movie “No Strings Attached” starring Natalie Portman and Ashton Kutcher. Was forced to watch the movie, but when actually watching the movie, I actually liked it and thought it be a great movie to do a paper on. Everyone can relate to every aspect of the movie. In the movie Ashton Kutcher plays Adam, and Natalie Portman plays Emma. The two met at a young age, had a funny moment together. He spills out the reason he was at camp was because of parents getting a divorce, and started to cry. Emma’s reaction was to make fun of Adam and call him out for it but comforted him when she realized it was serious. After the sad moment, Adam randomly asks if he can finger Emma, which ends up being a funny moment. Then they meet again at a frat party and they had another moment but it was more towards feelings towards each other. It was a pajama frat party and everyone was dressed up in their slutty pajamas and guys wore their boxers or pajamas. Emma shows up to the frat party in a onesie pajama to visit her best friend and that’s, when she runs into Adam and they connect for the first time. It went so good that Emma even invited him to go to something in the morning with her. But failed to mention that the something in the morning was the funeral of her father. It was an awkward but sweet moment between the two because he had no idea and dressed up in a bright yellow hoodie and shorts but made the best of it by being there for her. Still after that Emma refuses to give Adam her number at the end of that and says it’s the best for both of them. But little that she knew Emma would run into Adam 6 years later in the city, but at the time Adam was dating this girl that was not so bright. You can tell that…...

A Piece of String

...LaTasha Smith 16 August 2012 A Piece of String The short story of A Piece of String was written by Guy de Maupassant in 1883. It is a short story based on in my opinion the theory of “guilty until proven innocent”. The moral of the story is that you must tell the truth to maintain a reputation of honesty and gain trust from others, because a reputation of deceit and dishonesty will make people believe you are not trustworthy, so even when you're telling the truth, it is hard for others to believe. The main characters in The Piece of Strings are Maître Hauchecorne, M. Malandain and The Mayor of Goderville. Maître is a peasant, who picks up anything he sees as useful off the ground. The story begins where he is walking through the market and comes across a piece of string. He picks the string up and keeps it for himself. Later, in the Market, Maître Hanchecornes enemy accuses him of stealing someone else's pocketbook. This soon gets around Goderville, and people begin to distrust and dislike Maître Hauchecorne, despite his claim of innocence. Maître Hauchecorne already had a bad reputation with the citizens of Goderville due to his previous lying and over exaggerations and telling unbelievable stories. This is the main reason for the people's reluctance to believe Maître Hauchecorne, although he is telling the truth. The pocketbook is eventually returned, however the town still doesn’t believe his innocence. The pain and heartache that Maitre Hauchecorne suffered...

String Theory

...Craig Kalucki Comparitive Religion Tues 4-6:50 String theory and Universal Theories If we can take a looks garment from a sweater, and pull one string such as in a cartoon, the sweater will untangle leaving a pile of string on the floor. Basically what this implies is we break down something in its simplest form, and all we have left are tiny bits of string, which is basically similar to “String Theory”. string theory uses a model of one-dimensional strings in place of the particles of quantum physics. These strings, the size of the Planck length vibrate at specific resonant frequencies. The formulas that result from string theory predict more than four dimensions but the extra dimensions are "curled up" within the Planck length. In addition to the strings, string theory contains another type of fundamental object called a brane, which can have many more dimensions. In some "braneworld scenarios," our universe is actually "stuck" inside of a 3-dimensional brane, called a 3-brane. Common Sense tells us we live in a world defined by three spatial dimensions and one dimension of time. Mainly, it only takes three numbers to pinpoint your physical location at any given moment. On Earth, these coordinates break down to longitude, latitude and altitude representing the dimensions of length, width and height (or depth). If we put a time stamp on those coordinates, we are pinpointed in time as well. To strip that down even more, a one-dimensional world would be like...

Strings

...PROGRAMMING TOOLS AND TECHNIQUES-1 String and StringBuffer string • Unlike many other languages that implement strings as character arrays, Java implements strings as objects of type String. • Advantage of creating strings as objects is that String objects can be constructed a number of ways, making it easy to obtain a string when needed. • Once a String object has been created, you cannot change the characters that comprise that string. • You can still perform all types of string operations. The difference is that each time we need an altered version of an existing string, a new String object is created that contains the modifications. The original string is left unchanged. • This approach is used because fixed, immutable strings can be implemented more efficiently than changeable ones. string • For those cases in which a modifiable string is desired, Java provides two options: StringBuffer and StringBuilder. Both hold strings that can be modified after they are created. • The String, StringBuffer, and StringBuilder classes are defined in java.lang. Thus, they are available to all programs automatically. • The String, StringBuffer, and StringBuilder classes are declared final, which means that none of these classes may be subclassed. The String Constructors • The String class supports several constructors. To create an empty String, you call the default constructor. For example, String s = new String(); will create an instance of String with no characters......

Network Attached Storage

...can be specialized for tasks in either hardware, software, or configuration of those elements. NAS is manufactured as a computer appliance a specialized computer that can be built from the ground up for storing files, other than simply using a general purpose computer for it. The speed of a Network adapter is commonly one gigabit Ethernet connection but can also be changed to multiple gigabit, depending on if you’re building it yourself or buying it from a vender. The capacity range vary, some people have built 40 TB machines while other have 2TB. Port replication and the add-on hard drive controller cards, there can’t really be a limit on size. Say for example a board with 6 SATA ports can be replicated allowing for 30 drives to be attached, if 3TB drives were used in raid 50 that would be 72TB of storage. Fault tolerance, on the NAS device there is RAID 50 which is fairly stable if one set it up correctly. RAID 10 is one of the best setups, with RAID more drives can fail at once without data loss. All of those features can be used on any common NAS device. To put it simply, yes there are management features available to NAS, and a lot of them might I add. Why would a user want to use NAS? Well since NAS helps speed up processing and all that fun stuff who wouldn’t? Faster processing speeds means faster downloading speeds, and for a gamer or a lawyer that’s what they need is a fast processor fast download speed so any user who would want to use a NAS......

To String a Guitar

...To String A Guitar   To String A Guitar The method of putting a new string on a guitar may seem like an easy process, and in fact, it is. Before I begin to enlighten you on the art of strapping on a new string, there are some things you should know about your guitar. I have provided a map of the anatomy of an acoustic guitar with the appropriate terminology. Any time that I use a term associated with the diagram, I will italicize it. Example: The nut of the guitar. There are six strings on this guitar and I will walk you through the installation of the low E string which, in the above diagram, is the furthest to the left. The only items that you will need are a wire cutter, a guitar tuner, and of course, the low E string. This example will also assume that there is not currently a low E string on your guitar. To begin, you want to make sure that you have a good grasp on your guitar so that it remains stable and motion free while at the same time allowing the use of both of your hands. When you are ready, you can direct your attention to the bridge of the guitar where you will find the bridge pins. At this point, remove the bridge pin that is associated with the low E string. (The one furthest to the left on the diagram) Now focus your attention to the low E string that you have and if it is still coiled, you may uncoil it. At one of the ends of the string you shall see a little hollow ball. Take this ball and put it through the bridge of the guitar where you just...

Network Attached Storage

...Network Attached Storage (NAS) A Network-attached storage (NAS) is a server that is dedicated to nothing more than file sharing on a network. NAS does not provide any of the activities that a server in a server-centric system typically provides, such as e-mail, authentication or file management. It allows more hard disk storage space to be added to a network that already utilizes servers without shutting them down for maintenance and upgrades. With a NAS device, storage is not a vital part of the server. The server handles all of the processing of data but a NAS device delivers the data to the user. It does not need to be located within the server, but can exist anywhere in a LAN and can be made up of multiple NAS devices. (QuinStreet Enterprise , 2014) The speed of the network adapter on a NAS device can vary, depending on which one you buy. Your typical NAS device can run from 10 Mbps all the way to 1000 Mbps. The capacity range for a NAS device can range from a 1 TB all the way to 20 TB. This is 20,480 MB worth of data storage! With this large amount of data storage, you could store all your music, pictures, and videos in one device. (Best Buy, 2014) NAS Devices come with a built in fault tolerance called a RAID. RAID stands for “redundant array of independent disks”. With the help of RAID, you can tap into all of the storages on a NAS device all at once. A RAID array not only allows you to combine physical drives into a single storage unit, it also reserves a part of......

Piece of String

...When you read a story, you must realize that the point of view that the story is written in can help you learn more about the story. It can also create more excitement, and create more mystery while you read. Both “The Necklace”, and “The Piece of String” stories, are written in a Third Person Limited perspective. This means that the narrator is an outsider who sees into the mind of one of the characters. This is a major factor in determining how the stories make you feel about themselves, and how interesting the stories are. In a third-person view story, the reader can see the story itself from different points of view, and not just one. He or she can learn more, and know more than the individual characters themselves. In a first-person view story, the reader sees from the point of view of the narrator, so he/she may see more dialog including feels, thoughts, and ideas. In a third-person view, the reader will see more facts, such as what all of the other characters do. However, they will not see as many of the inner-feelings or thoughts of the characters, unless it is third-person omniscient. In addition, a third-person view is often more easy to figure out if it is a mystery, or similar plot structure, because the reader learns more facts from concrete reading, then having to think about whats going on in a story. In a first-person view, it is harder to figure out, generally, the plot details and story, because the reader only gains the facts of what the......

Network Attached Storage

...Network Attached Storage: Niesha What is a NAS device? Network-attached storage (NAS) is a type of dedicated file storage device that provides local-area network (LAN) users with centralized, consolidated disk storage through a standard Ethernet connection. What is the speed of the network adapter available on a NAS device? There are many varieties of NAS devices, depending on if you build it yourself or purchase it.   The speed is usually 1GB Ethernet connection but it can be changed to multiple Gb, 10Gb, fiber optic by adding a PCIe network card(s).    What is the capacity range? The capacity range also varies.   With a port replication and add on hardware drive controller cards there really isn’t a limit on size.   A board that has six SATA ports can be replicated allowing for thirty drives to be attached, if 3TB drives are used in RAID 50,that would be 72TB of storage. Is there any fault tolerance (such as RAID) built into a NAS device? If set up correctly RAID 50 is fairly stable, RAID 10 has been touted as on of the best set ups because more drives can fail at one time with having data loss.   Are management features available? Here are some management features available on a NAS device.   Consider using SSL to protect the Web management interface a bare minimum.   Support of protocols such as SSH for encryption of RSYNC data transfers would be excellent. SMB’s with more than two dozen users will appreciate a proper management console from which...

Please Pull String for Line

...Daniella Rodriguez Film 1 Casablanca Prompt 3 9 March 2015 Please Pull String for Line As I left the room after class on Monday night, one of the girls behind me said to her friends how she though Casablanca was one of the most romantic movies she’s ever seen. I have to humbly disagree with her. Yes, it is touching how Rick puts aside his relationship with Ilsa in order to help the world, because he knows his problems are miniscule to the world. The part was great. But how can a movie that portrays women in such a bad and ridiculous light be considered romantic? All three women we actually see are nothing more than pawns in the game the men play, props to elevate the glory of the main hero and stepping stones to achieve his full mission. The first woman we meet is Yvonne. She’s obviously gorgeous, and somehow that’s all we know. Through the narrative we learn nothing more than the fact that she sleeps around, and is somehow annoying for wanting more than just sex. Because wanting something more than sex is somehow too much to handle for our lead. She is literally being passed around from man to man, who take her home for sex and then treat her like garbage the next day. There is no difference between her and a high class prostitute. Not only is she an annoying walking sex toy, she also happens to be an alcoholic. During a scene the audience sees Yvonne drinking more than she should, and who comes to the rescue Rick. After she tells him that she doesn’t want to go, we...

Network Attached Storage System

...nsities growing at 60%/year, resulting in 35%-50%/year decreases in the cost per byte. In recent years, the amount of storage sold almost doubled each year and is expected to sustain annual growth of at least 60%. Secondary storage has a healthy place in future computer systems. While many storage products are directly attached to personal computers, most disk array products (65% and rising) are deployed in local area network file servers. This centralization of storage resources enables effective sharing, better administrative control and less redundancy. However, it also increases dependence on network and file server performance. With the emergence of high-performance cluster systems based on commodity personal computers and scalable network switching, rapidly increasing demands on storage performance are anticipated. Specifically, storage performance must cost-effectively scale with customer investments in client processors, network links and storage capacity. Unfortunately, current distributed file system architectures severely limit scalable storage. In current distributed file systems, all storage bytes are copied through file server machines between peripheral buses (typically SCSI) and client LANs. In essence, these file server machines act as application-level inter-network routers, converting namespaces (disk block versus file range) and protocol layers (SCSI versus RPC/UDP/IP). This is a critical limitation for cost-effective scalable......

Sweet Sounding Strings: Changing Guitar Strings Made Easy

...Take a look at your guitar strings. Are they in good shape? Are they silver and shiny? Are six strings there? If it's been several months since you put new strings on your guitar, or if you answered no to any of these questions, it’s time for a string change. Guitar strings on the guitar are just like knees on a baby’s jeans: they wear out easy, and should become a regular part of your guitar care routine. Even the oils in your fingers deteriorate the string. Some people fret over the techniques of replacing their own guitar strings. String changes can be stress-free; it takes little practice, should take only a few minutes per string, and will provide a bright, clear sound from your guitar. Anyone who knows how to play the guitar should know how to perform their own string changes on a basic electric guitar. Many music stores offer restringing for a fee, which can add up quickly if you have a number of guitars to maintain. And the need for a string change can happen at any time, not just when it is convenient to run to a store to have them do it for you. To begin, collect all of the tools you will need. These include a wire cutter or pair of pliers capable of cutting wire, a thick bath towel to protect your instrument’s finish while on your working surface, and a new set of strings. You will need a tuner for when you have your strings on, so you can tune them. To remove fingerprints and oils from the fret board and off of the finished areas, you will want to......
