Trigatipede The days were growing shorter and the project’s failure was becoming apparent. My crew and I had been researching on a little island just south of Australia for over three months, and we were making little progress. I was hired as the team leader for this excursion by a private investor from some breakthrough zoo. The investor, a man by the name of Henry Shrinton, asked me along with my crew to go down under to find new, unknown animals. I found this request very unusual simply beca

Hinduism The term Hinduism refers to the civilization of the Hindus (originally, the inhabitants of the land of the Indus River). Introduced in about 1830 by British writers, it properly denotes the Indian civilization of approximately the last 2,000 years, which evolved from Vedism the religion of the Indo-European peoples who settled in India in the last centuries of the 2nd millennium BC. The spectrum that ranges from the level of popular Hindu belief to that of elaborate ritual technique and

Introduction to Islam
Introduction to Islam Allah (God) Islam is the complete submission and obedience to Allah (God). The name Allah (God) in Islam never refers to Muhammad (pbuh), as many Christians may think; Allah is the personal name of God. What do Muslims believe about Allah? 1. He is the one God, Who has no partner. 2. Nothing is like Him. He is the Creator, not created, nor a part of His creation. 3. He is All-Powerful, absolutely Just. 4. There is no other entity in the entire universe worthy of worship bes

THE FIRST USE OF RADAR Research Methods July 4, 2003 During World War II, battles were won by the side that was first to spot enemy airplanes, ships, or submarines. To give the Allies an edge, British and American scientists developed radar technology to see for hundreds of miles, even at night. The research that went into improving radar helped set the stage for post-war research into the transistor. 1940s radar relied on a semiconductor crystal, or rectifier. Radar worked by sending out a radi

Abstract: The Superstring theory is quite possibly one of the leading Theories of Everything. Meaning that, it proven, it would postulate all of physics in one equation. The history of Superstrings and the conditions that brought it forth are viewed as wells as the impending implications of this discovery. Notice: This research paper approaches the subject of Superstrings from a quantitative viewpoint due to the lack of breadth of mind (of the author). Meaning, the author does not have the col

Ernest Hemingway once gave some advice to his fellow writer F. Scott Fitzgerald. If something in life hurts you, he said, you should use it in your writing. In A Farewell to Arms Hemingway followed his own advice. The painful experiences of his own life that, consciously and unconsciously, he placed in this novel help make it a major artistic achievement. The first of these experiences was a physical hurt that occurred on July 8, 1918. On this date, two weeks shy of his nineteenth birthday, H

In the summer of 1969, not everyone was at Woodstock. In laboratories on either side of the continent a small group of computer scientists were quietly changing the future of communication. Their goal was to build a computer network that would enable researchers around the country to share ideas (Kantrowitz 56). The Internet we make so much today -- the global Internet which has helped scholars so much, where free speech is flourishing as never before in history -- the Internet was a cold war m

A study of various caching strategies for data cache management. Abstract: We review a frequency based replacement algorithm for managing caches used for disk blocks by a File System, DBMS or disk control unit, which we refer to as Data Caches. LRU replacement is generally used widely for such caches. We present a replacement algorithm based on the concept of maintaining reference counts in which locality has been factored out. In this algorithm replacement choices are made using a combinatio

Many peoples have contributed to the development of the United States of America, a vast nation that arose from a scattering of British colonial outposts in the New World. The first humans to inhabit the North American continent were migrants from northeast Asia who established settlements in North America as early as 8000 BC and possibly much earlier (see NORTH AMERICAN ARCHAEOLOGY). By about AD 1500 the native peoples of the areas north of the Rio Grande had developed a variety of different c

The picture I am speaking of is the imperfect image of the one I love. She is one of such exceedingly great beauty that it cannot be captured on anything by Man's hand, but to me it represents her, and that is as near to heaven as I am likely to get. But the picture, besides being an imperfect symbol of utter perfection, is exceedingly cloudy. The in

Brief History of Library Automation: 1930-1996 An automated library is one where a computer system is used to manage one or several of the library's key functions such as acquisitions, serials control, cataloging, circulation and the public access catalog. When exploring the history of library automation, it is possible to return to past centuries when visionaries well before the computer age created devices to assist with their book lending systems. Even as far back as 1588, the invention of th

Public health has rarely been able to go beyond pointing at these larger issues such as poverty, economic globalization, and lack of political will.”1 - Jonathan Mann, 1997 Insulin infusion pump technology has been around for quite a few years but has been very slow to gain popularity among the diabetic community.

One study found that only 5% of penitentiary inmates did not have some sort of mental disorder. This study counted “. . . psychosis, a problem of substance abus

In developing countries, life expectances have increased from 55 to 64 years, Income per person has doubled and Infant Mortality has been reduced by 50 percent. Despite the successes, massive development challenges remain. Three billion people live on less than 2 dollars a day and 1.3 billion live on less than one dollar a day. Over 40,000 people

In 1995 alone, domestic mergers totaled more than $450 Billion. In just the first week of the second quarter of 1996, merger activity totaled $28.3 Billion. To name a couple of corporations that were involved were Bell Telephone systems and AT T. Pros and cons come from such large mergers and acquisitions.

There have been many new developments since the post-Cold War elimination of nuclear warfare. This diminishing of arms however, is a very fine line.

In my short life on this planet I have come to question things that many take upon blind faith. We all know that we must some day die; yet we continuously deny the forces at work inside ourselves, which want to search out the answers of what may or may not come after. It is far easier for humanity to accept that they will go to a safe haven and be rewarded for their lives with pleasures and fantasies of an unfathomable scale than to question the existence of a supposed omnipotent being. Yet, th

Ernest Hemingway lived his life to the fullest. He experienced more than any other man. Since not many people traveled as much as Ernest, Ernest shared his experiences in books. In “The Snows of Kilimanjaro”, “Hills like White Elephants”, and “In Another Country”, Ernest Hemingway uses a great deal of dialogue to help the reader identify with the characters in the story to show the reader how he perceives the situation of his experiences.

The history of the United States has been influenced by England in many ways. In the second half of the 1800's, the railroad, which was invented in England, had a major effect on Western expansion in the United States. Railroads were born in England, a country with dense populations, shor

The Beginnings of a National Literary Tradition
The Beginnings of a National Literary Tradition Canadians throughout their history have been concerned over the status of their national literature. One of the major problems facing early Canadian writers was that the language and poetic conventions that they had inherited from the Old World were inadequate for the new scenery and conditions in which they now found themselves. Writers such as Susanna Moodie, Samuel Hearne, and Oliver Goldsmith were what I would consider Immigrant authors. Eve

If I did not know beforehand that this story was based on a true story, I would have never thought that it was possible for that many people to survive such a horrific and disastrous ordeal, for such a long time; especially under the horrible conditions they were in. Although this event was indeed a tragedy, it allowed individuals to display various
