Research on Mechanical Engineering

I've always been intrigued about how things are made and put together. I've asked myself questions about what makes an engine drive an automobile or a printing machine print words on a piece of paper. So many small and large parts must be pieced together to make a whole. If one intricate piece of the puzzle is missing or not running properly, the machine or system fails. Deadlines will come and go, and productions will cease. How does a mechanical engineer know where to start? Troubleshooting seems ridiculously difficult, especially with something complex. Of course, someone had to have an idea in the first place, but to make that idea turn into something mechanically successful and useful is amazing. A job that is so technical may require years of education and extensive finances. Will I be able to afford this type of education? Am I intellectually up for the challenge? What are the areas of expertise in this broad field? Would a job in mechanical engineering be rewarding as a career?

Complementary and Integrative Health Approaches

Maimonides once said, “The physician should not treat the disease but the patient who is suffering from it.” Maimonides is making a great point! The healthcare system has become so accustomed to treating specific diseases that they can be blind to individual patient needs. Think of the example of a patient who was just told they have cancer. The patient wants to know if it can be cured and the best treatment options. Health care professionals offer treatment to treat the manifestations or to ease the pain but not always to cure the individual. If the patient is advised to fight the disease with chemotherapy, they will be made aware of the side effects but may not understand the physical and emotional demand. After going through with chemotherapy they most likely will become constantly exhausted, nauseous, emotionally drained and p

Police Brutality: Causes, Impacts and Solutions

Introduction The relationship between civilians and police officers is of paramount importance ensuring that law and order prevails in the society. Police officers cannot successfully perform their duties without the support of civilians. On the other hand, police officers have a responsibility of ensuring law and order prevails in the society for civilians to carry out their daily activities without fear or interruptions. However, in the recent past these relationships have been constrained due to various reasons. Police officers and civilians have in some cases clashed and this has worsened the relationships between these two groups. Police officers have a duty to protect all civilians and ensure law and order is maintained at all times. On the other hand, civilians demand to enjoy their rights and conduct their daily activities without being interrupted by other civilians or police officers (Chaney, & Robertson, 2013). The gap between marinating law and order and exercising the free

Analysis of A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens

Charles Dickens brings life to the French Revolution, in his historical novel, A Tale of Two Cities. His novel envelopes around many unforgettable names as he brings the story of two cities, London and Paris together. Throughout the whole book, Dickens refers to the wine as the blood that runs through the streets of Paris. This passage is from Book the First, Chapter 5, where Dickens introduces Paris and the Defarges for the first time, who eventually become some of the most significant characters of the book. Charles Dickens recreates the gravity of the French Revolution as he uses wine to surface the rising tension among those doomed with poverty. Throughout this passage, he anticipates the French Revolution, throws light upon the people’s joy that is bound with despair and illuminates the pit-striking hunger of the people. The lower classes of France at the time of the French Revolution were suffering from poverty, starvation and hunger. The people did not have enough food or har

The 1972 Olympics and the Munich Massacre

The Munich massacre was an attack during the Olympic games in Munich, West Germany in 1972. Eleven athletes of the Israeli Olympic team were taken hostage and eventually killed, along with a German police officer, by the Palestinian group Black September. The hostage taking, which resulted in the death of the eleven athletes, took place almost entirely in the glare of the world’s media. The world watched as the horror unfolded, terrorism was brought into their homes for the first time. Security considerations and media coverage of terrorist incidents, nor the way the western world view’s terrorism have ever been the same since. At approximately 5am, on September 5th, 1972, five terrorists dressed in tracksuits, carrying duffle bags containing assault rifles, pistols, and grenades climbed over a six and a half foot chain-link fence with the assistance of unsuspecting athletes who were also sneaking into the Olympic Village. The athletes were originally thought to be American but we

American Gothic and A Rose for Emily

Louis Gross states, “The American gothic is concerned primarily with exploring personal identity through the roles of family and national history.” This definition of the subgenre describes the gothic described in “A Rose for Emily” by William Faulkner in an impeccable manner. The house’s decline in appearance and beauty on the street was a prevalent link to the theme of the decline in Miss Emily’s social status in her community. Her house being described as “white, decorated with cupolas and spires set on what had once been our most select street” (section 1), at the beginning of the story and then by the end of Miss Emily’s life it was pictured as a run down, desolated and a “coquettish decay” ran as a parallel of Miss Emily herself. Once being described as an angelic figure in white and by the end she was shown as a haggard women whose status and appearance had fallen down to that of a “fallen women” is very similar to the gothic downfall of the house. As the house lost its status o

Cao Gio/Gua Sha Philosophy

Upon being assigned this essay, I immediately thought of my boyfriend. It sounds weird I know, but I’ll never forget the day we were hanging out and I caught a glimpse of his back as he was taking off his sweatshirt...deep red liner marks all over his back. I asked about them, absolutely mortified because quite frankly, they looked like lesions like one would have with meningitis. He told me that he previously had a migraine that would not go away so when he went home for the weekend his mother did cao gio on his back (he is Vietnamese). Thus I’ve decided to explore the claims made by proponents of the cao gio practice. Cao Gio (pronounced cow gaw) is the Vietnamese version of the Chinese practice of Gua Sha. Both these practices operate under the belief that certain ailments, like headaches, the common cold, and fatigue are caused by a build-up of wind in the body thus the names Cao Gio (carving wind) and Gua Sha (scraping sha; sha being the redness that comes to the surface of t

The Rights and Wrongs on Induced Abortion

Induced abortion, the deliberate termination of a pregnancy has been one of the biggest issues in America for decades. The debate about Induced abortion continues to be a problem in the society because of the reasoning behind laws that have been established. Opponents of induced abortion, pro-life supporters including the Planned Parenthood organization, have argued that it is immoral. The fetus they have noted is human and has a right to life just as the mother. They also believe that Induced abortion goes against Christian principles outlined in the Bible. On the other hand, supporters of Induced abortion, including Katha Pollitt’s, argues that that “abortion, despite what any of its opponents might claim, is a palpable social good.” Pro-choice supporters essentially believe it is a woman’s right to make decisions about what is in her best interest. Considering both sides of the issue, one will realize that abortion is a complex issue, and therefore should not be limited to u

Staying Connected Through Social Media

“Facebook constitutes a rich site for researchers interested in the affordances of social networks due to its heavy usage patterns and technological capacities that bridge online and offline connections” (Ellison 1143). Social networking sites have become a way for people all over the world to converse in various ways. Facebook is a social network that is one of the most effective ways to communicate with people, establish relationships with others, and advertise to the world. While we can communicate through phone calls, text messages and emails Facebook has become a cultural product that our society values. Social media has reached its all-time high and is very significant to our society. People all over the world use Facebook to communicate with family members, friends, classmates, and even strangers as you see in figure 1. As human beings, communication is an important life skill that enables us to understand better and connect with the people around us. The Facebook connectio

Persepolis: The Story of a Childhood

A graphic novel can be defined as a book-length comic. They can be comprised of only one narrative or a collection of short individual stories. They contain sub-sequential visual art in rectangular patterns much like comic books. However, unlike comics, graphic novels aren’t all typically funny. The major differences between comics and graphic novels is that they are longer, and comics can cover stories over the course of many issues while graphic novels are just one or two books (Difference Between Comic Books and Graphic Novels, knowledgenuts.com). Many graphic novels have drama, adventure, and even character development. This type of book has been growing in popularity due to its diverse format, as well as its appeal from having pictures. First, here is the simplified history of the graphic novel. Newspapers were the reason for the initial comic strips to become popular in the 19th century. From there entire magazines for comics and superhero stories were made. Then these became

Barrack Rules and Regulations

As a soldier living in the barracks there are very few policies soldier have to follow. As soldiers, your living quarters should be in regulation, ready for inspection at all times. If any rule or regulation is ignored by any soldier there will be punishment for this. We are soldiers 24/7, keeping our living quarters in standard is apart of our job.

Slavery in the Cherokee Nation and the Freedmen Controversy

Throughout the years, slavery has played a dominant role within the Cherokee Nation, inevitably affecting thousands of African Americans, American Indians, and Europeans alike. Within the last decade, a vicious battle has come alive between the Cherokee people and freedmen. These freedmen, who have been denied their right to remain within the Cherokee nation, are descendants of slaves held by the Native American tribe. The purpose of this research is to outline a brief history of slavery within the Cherokee Nation, key conflicts, and the resulting outcomes. Before Europeans journeyed to North America and brought African slaves with them, Africans and Native Americans actually had a lot in common. Slavery existed, but in a much different context. Peace and diversity were commonalities: “Diverse societies flourished in Africa and the Americas for thousands of years before Europeans colonized them. In this hemisphere, there were hundreds of Native nations, each with its own spirituali

The Gothic Setting of Jane Eyre

The gothic genre of literature originated in Germany and became popular in England during the late eighteenth century. The combination of supernatural occurrences, melancholy mystery, and remote scenery painted a drab backdrop for Jane Eyre in the midst of Europe’s almost romanticised tuberculosis epidemic during the Victorian Era. Jane Eyre’s gothic setting sets up the theme for perseverance and female rebellion in a time of Victorian Patriarchy, as well as illustrating the main barrier between Jane and Mr. Rochester. One of the first gothic elements we encounter in the novel is the red-room, the position of exile and imprisonment imposed on Jane as punishment for her supposed fault in fighting her cousin. In this eerie room belonging to her late Uncle, Jane looks at herself in the mirror. “Returning, I had to cross before the looking-glass; my fascinated glanc

Coming to Terms with Depression

“How’s it going, are you feeling okay? You don’t seem like yourself, are you positive you’re doing alright? If somethings going on you know you can talk to me, no judgement involved.” Just those few sentences could have helped me conclude that I need help. There have been many times that I’ve gone days, weeks, even months feeling uneasy, emotional, indecisive, worthless, restless, and loss of interest in things that normally bring me happiness. I go through the ups and downs of being content, smiling and laughing, communicating with family and friends, going to class and be productive for a few moments, then ill-fated the next, wasting time watching television, sleeping, staying awake for multiple days, over-eating and under-eating, and having no interaction with the outside world. Anything from the stress of classes, family and relationship issues, or personal issues with me lead me to go through these bizarre phases. Naturally I recognize that this is not normal, however,

Community Service Activities

"We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give,” is one of my favorite quotes by the late Winston Churchill. I gave six hours to a non-profit charity this past week by selling t-shirts to promote breast cancer awareness and it was most fulfilling. Seeing my hard work make a difference inspired me to provide services for the local Minot Human Society as well. In the next passages I will explain my tasks, personal thoughts on community service conducted and the correlation between the chapter lesson and my community efforts. Community Service Activity Live United (United Way) is a non-profit charity organization focused on providing food, shelter, health and wellness, dignity, self-worth, independence, companionship and so much more. It has been a great honor to provide my charismatic attitude to help sell t-shirts for such a glorious and noble cause. Located right here in the lovely Minot community, I stood out near the fairgrounds at a wonderfully decorated t
