The Page Decision When I was three years old, my parents were divorced. A truly horrible time for any family, and mine was no exception. After about a decade of being married, they decided that they just weren't good for each other and wanted to end things before my brother and I grew up. It was a wise decision. I can't really remember a lot of what happened. (Victim mentality, mother changed, pitied.) Having a family as mixed up as mine just took a little getting used to over the years. A year after the divorce, my father remarried. My stepmother was a widow and already had three boys of her own....Quite the rough and tumble type. My stepmother was delighted to have a girl and did all the things a mother would dream of with a girl, except I didn't want any part of it. I was always very introverted and independent and didn't want any of what she wanted me to do. It remains mostly the same to this day. (Neilson relationship.) About six months after my father remarried, my mother did as well. It was all very weird to me, even at five years old. He's just so...old. My stepfather was nice, but just not in the mood for children (having seven of his own already prior to his divorce who were all older than me and my brother), and he automatically became responsible for two little ones. Good way to start of a marriage. (Negative household) All throughout my life up until my decision, it was always the same. I hated going to my dad's house and my stepbrothers hated when I came. I was never bullied, but rather shunted aside and left to my own devices. Though I always loved to be included, I was just fine because I entertained myself most of the time, anyway. The reason why I hated going over to my dad's house was because he was never there, and my stepmother was. Being a good mother, she tried to…...

The Pages of History

...The Pages Of History by Donald Smith Professor David K. Woodroof English 122 22 June 2011 The Pages of History I have often contemplated about what makes something important enough to be recorded on the pages of history. History is only as accurate as the scribes that laid down its foundation and the editors that decided what was important enough to be retained. People possibly for their brilliance or horrendous acts, inventions or monumental events that may have changed the world are recorded for posterity. Editors have the difficult task of sifting through mountains of historical recordings, selecting the most significant and compiling them accordingly into anthologies or independent volumes. Over the centuries some items have remained while others have faded from history’s pages. In many instances those items that made it past the editor’s pen shall remain among the pages of history for eternity. As an example, if I were to mention Thomas Edison, one would immediately think of the electric light bulb. Others are forever enshrined in history for their brilliant minds: Newton; Galileo; Michelangelo; Da Vinci; or Hitler and the Nazis for their infamous acts. Not limited to people, events such as the discovery of the new world, the Battle of Gettysburg, and the rise and fall of the Roman Empire have made past the editors. Many rightly deserve their places in the annals of recorded time but some have elevated or cemented themselves on history’s pages......

Also, this could be the reverse, the buyer can purchase and the seller doesn’t deliver on time or the product may not turn out to be what the buyer thought if should......

...SDS-PAGE also called sodium dodecyl sulfate polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis is a technique used to separate proteins only by their size. SDS or sodium dodecyl sulfate is a detergent used to denature the proteins; they will unfold and will not have any secondary, tertiary or quaternary structure. Proteins will have a negative charge and they will move down the gel by their molecular weight. PAGE or polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis is a polymer of the neurotoxin acrylamide and a cross-linking agent called bis-acrylamide. Usually APS and TEMED are used as catalysts for the process of cross-linking. There are two different settings of running the polyacrylamide gel, denaturing gel and non-denaturing gel or native gel. Denaturing gel consists of using urea or SDS to denature or unfold proteins and subsequently separate them by their molecular weight. A non-denaturing or native gel is used primarily to analyze the tertiary and quaternary structure of proteins; therefore they do not need to be unfolded. SDS-PAGE is essential in protein analysis in different fields such as forensic, biochemistry, biotechnology, molecular biology and genetics. The SDS-PAGE gel has to be poured in two parts. The first gel that is poured is the resolving gel. This type of gel consists of 3 to 30 % acrylamide thus possessing small pores and a pH of 8.8. The second gel is called the stacking gel and it is poured on top of the resolving gel. Stacking gel has 8 to 12 % acrylamide,......

Web Page

...Web page A web page or webpage is a document commonly written in HyperText Markup Language (HTML) that is accessible through the Internet or other network using a browser. A web page is accessed by entering a URL address and may contain text, graphics, and hyperlinks to other web pages and files. The page you are reading now is an example of a web page. HTML Developed by Tim Berners-Lee in 1990, HTML is short for HyperText Markup Language. HTML is used to create electronic documents (called pages) that are displayed on the World Wide Web. Each page contains a series of connections to other pages called hyperlinks. Every web page you see on the Internet is written using one version of HTML code or another. Hypertext A method of organizing and accessing text or other data, such as tables, presentational content and images, through the use of hyperlinks. Today, anyone who has been on the Internet is familiar with hypertext as it is in every link they click or tap. Hypertext is a concept that was mentioned in an Atlantic Monthly article in 1945 by Vannevar Bush, who talked about a photo-electric mechanical device called a Memex (short for memory extension) capable of creating and following links between documents on microfiche. This concept was later coined by Ted Nelson in 1965 who worked for and with Andries van Dam at Brown University. Andries, with the help of Ted and other Brown University students, created a Hypertext Editing System (HES). However, the first public......

...Being able to create a web page is an interesting development. In the beginning, researching which tutorials to use for this project seemed a little difficult for deciding which ones to use. There are numerous tutorials out there but only a few of them include specific tutorials and examples on how you can create a web page step by step. The main one that I used was a site named, Page Tutor which goes over each step on how to create your own page. I enjoyed using this site as my main resource to creating my web page because it gave specific examples as well as pictures revealing how the page will look on the internet with using certain codes. The process with creating my web page was not too difficult. In previous semesters, I’ve taken courses related to Web Development and Flash. They were interesting classes and while working on this project it brought back some of the things I’ve learned from those classes. A few things I had forgotten but overall I had fun while working on this web page. The coding was not too hard to grasp but it reminded me how easily you can make a mistake. Some of the mistakes I stumbled upon were not closing brackets or misspelling some of the coding on my page. This can take some time to realize what mistakes you’ve made which I spent quite some time looking over. This was an exciting and interesting project to work on. Hopefully in the future, I will continue with Web Development since it’s a stimulating process....

Larry Page

... Background You always hear stories about people who knew what they wanted to do with their life the second they started living. Larry Page was, and still is, one of those people. Since the tender age of 12, Page knew that one day he would start his own business. Of course, the elements contributing to this decision began at a much younger age than twelve. One would say that the love of inventing things ran in the family. Page's parents, Gloria and Carl Page, were two highly talented and intelligent computer science professors at the University of Michigan. While other six years olds were off playing sports and collecting baseball cards, Page took great interest in dismantling items in his house to "see how it worked". When asked about his childhood, Page commented "(there were) computers and Popular Science magazines everywhere". From this quote, it is quite evident that there was something unusual about Page from a very young age. Page moved on to become the first kid at his school to turn in an assignment from a word processor. One of his first inventions was an inkject printer made entirely from LEGO bricks. As Page grew older, he decided not to put his talent of inventing items to waste, and became interested in the world of business. He earned a Bachelor of Science degree in computer engineering from the University of State Michigan and a Master of Science in computer science from Stanford University. He graduated from both schools with......

...Title | To go Or Not To Go! | Story | Every weekend in Madrid is a vast array of events, parties, games, experiences. As someone who has decision paralysis, I tend to fall into the trap of not being able to make a decision quickly and sometimes missing the opportunity altogether. It was the long weekend here, and there were 4 different trip options of places to go (Valencia, Seville, Portugal, and San Sabastian). Because there were so many choices and I was unable to limit my own choices, I actually ended up being completely frozen and didn’t go anywhere because I spent SO long deciding that I missed all of the cars. | Analysis | This is a clear observation of my Decision Overload bias. This trap was so severe that it actually prevented me from doing anything. This can be very debilitating, and one needs to not get overwhelmed by decisions through limiting options and not overthinking the results too much. | Title | They all sit together | Story | My parents live in Madrid, and because they are from the United States they have very strong opinions about smoking. Since Spain is heavily polluted with smokers, I have observed that my parents who believe vehemently that smoking is awful, they will befriend locals who tend to be ex-patriots who share this view with them. I have observed in the past week that they do not hang out with many local Spaniards because they do not have the same beliefs about smoking. | Analysis | This is an interesting observation of the......

ESTABLISHING A VARIABLE PAY SYSTEM Proponents of variable pay programs contend that implementation of such a system is far more likely to be successful if the following conditions are met: Employees must have control over their performance. If employees are overly dependent on the actions and output of other employees or processes, they may have little control over their own performance. Variable pay programs that are not based on principles of employee empowerment are almost certainly doomed to fail. Differences in performance must mean something to the business. Employees must ...

...the public domain. Less visible, however, but often more devastating, is the domestic violence that occurs within the family and often against women. The International Council of Nurses (ICN) (2001) notes in a summary of research done on four continents that as many as 20 to 50 percent of all women in the studies reported experiencing partner violence. But what are the links among domestic violence, health care profession, nurses, and ethics? In moral philosophy, there is a long tradition of debate on whether true moral dilemmas can exist, some arguing that it will always be possible to decide which obligation should prevail. On this concept regardless of the abstract possibility of an ideal resolution and the pragmatic reality that decisions are made and people have to live with them. An ethical dilemma presents a choice that must be made between two mutually exclusive courses of action, each of which is perceived to rest on a moral obligation that carries significant weight for the actor confronting the dilemma. According to Draucker (2002} addresses intimate partner abuse as repeatable and increasing patterns of violence against women by men in their attempts to gain power. She notes that because this abuse occurs in a continuing relationship, or in a newly severed one, the perpetrator may have long-term access to the abused one. Furthermore, she acknowledges the many economic and sociological factors that contribute to domestic violence and then recommends, among......
