TRANSFORMERS MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE
TRANSFORMERS: MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE When I was younger, I loved to watch cartoons. Although I watched many cartoons, there was one cartoon in particular that caught my attention the most. This cartoon was a science fiction story about robotic lifeforms called The Transformers. At that time, The Transformers was the most exciting and important thing in my life. It came on everyday, and I tried not to ever miss an episode. If I knew I would miss an episode, I made sure I had someone record it f

TV Violence Children
TV, Violence, Children Children from the ages 6-11 spend more time watching television than they do in the classroom. The level of violence that they see on prime time television is about five violent acts per hour and the level of violence on Saturday that includes cartoons morning programming is about 20 to 25 violent acts per hour. At this rate, the average American child will see 8,000 murders before they finish elementary school! As a child sits in front of baby-sitting television, her eye

A large number of epidemiological studies done over the last 40 years
A large number of epidemiological studies done over the last 40 years have found some alarming results. It seems that people that work in occupations that have a high exposure to electrical and or magnetic field are many times more likely to get some forms of cancer. These people include electricians, electrical engineers, electrical utility workers, power station workers, telephone and power company linemen. While all cancers appear to happen at a higher rate among this group of workers it als

56Kbps Modem On September 10, 1996, Rockwell Semiconductor Systems shocked the communications industry with its announcement of a revolutionary new dial up modem technology for communicating across the Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN) at rates up to 56 Kbps*. Since that time, Rockwell’s 56Kbps technology has been supported and adopted by most of the communications related companies in the world as the way to communicate at rates up to 56Kbps. Prior to this announcement, the modem communi
The Metallurgy of Copper Wire
The Metallurgy of Copper Wire
The Metallurgy of Copper Wire Introduction Copper is the preferred and predominant choice in the electrical industry because of its high conductivity, both electrical and thermal. In order to obtain the required properties, unalloyed high purity copper is almost always used. This article discusses the rationale for this choice, and pays particular attention to the underlying metallurgical principles. It is intended to serve as a technical discussion of pertinent developments spanning the past se

Fire Ants
Fire Ants
Fire Ants Fire ants have been in the United States for over sixty years, and almost every American that lives in or frequently visits the quarantined states which they inhabit has had an unpleasant run in with these troublesome critters. Inhabitants of the Southeast who have ever stood unwittingly atop a fire ant mound know that the insects are aptly named. When the ants sting it creates a sensation similar to scorching caused by a hot needle touching the skin momentarily (1. Tschinkel 474). Fir
Nikola Tesla
Nikola Tesla
Nikola Tesla Few people recognize his name today, and even among those who do, the words Nikola Tesla are likly to summon up the image of a crackpot rather than an authentic scientist. Nikola Tesla was possibly the greatest inventor the world has ever known. He was, without doubt, a genius who is not only credited with many devices we use today, but is also credited with astonishing, sometimes world-transforming, devices that are even simply amazing by todays scientific standards. Tesla was born

Radio A Form of Communication
Radio: A Form of Communication Physics Idoh Gersten Mr. Zambizi Physics March 12, 1995 Radio is a form of communication in which intelligence is transmitted without wires from one point to another by means of electromagnetic waves. Early forms of communication over great distances were the telephone and the telegraph. They required wires between the sender and receiver. Radio, on the other hand, requires no such physical connection. It relies on the radiation of energy from a transmitting antenn
