Space ExplorationThe limitless region of outer space lies before us, awaiting discovery and exploration, but there is concern about the cost of space exploration. Although it does cost a lot of money, the long-term advantages of space exploration and colonization can be quite effective and helpful. If we continue to use fossil fuels and minerals at the rate we're going we won't have much left for the future. Also, the population of the Earth is growing and overpopulating quickly. With further space exploration we may be able to find a way to

Should the U.S. place limits on the development of space weapons? What should go in the category of space weapon? What challenges will be faced in the development of space weapons? How will these developments tie into furthering technology for space travel? How will these advances affect life here on earth?
Currently the United States does not have weapons of mass destruction in space. The United States does have tactical devices in space providing defense and supporting campaigns that take place here on earth. The United States can jam or destroy enemy satellite ground control stations with aircraft or special operations forces.1 Using surveillance satellites U.S. military forces are able...

Space exploration has been increasing greatly in the last 50 years. It has allowed us to understand the greatness of the universe and the endless possibilities it offers us. Our planet, Earth, is inhabited by approximately 6 billion humans. This is well over our natural carrying capacity (the amount of resources there are to sustain our population) but with techniques such as farming, we have manipulated our resources to provide us with enough food, but alternate solutions are needed. The Cold War was when the space exploration significantly advanced, with the political competition between U.S.A and the U.S.S.R., where the two nations invested highly on technologies to see who could win...

My project is about personal space. It is about finding out why people
tend to have their own personal space. Personal space is the region
surrounding a person. Each individual has their own personal space.
Distance from strangers varies than distance from families and
relatives. Method used will be participant observation which is a
qualitative method. It is one of the most popular and widely used
research methods. The main advantages of participant observation is
that it allows you to have an insight on how the individuals of a
society perform and the ways in which they think and why.
I chose to investigate into this area because...

The Politics of Space Exploration
The simple commanding beauty of the moments before lift-off—thrusters ignited as dazzling shades of fire and smoke shatter the dreams of the sleeping rocket, contrasted by a flawlessly infinite blue sky and heightened by an almost surreal apprehension—depict the dramatic perfection that is space exploration. This image frozen in time, however captivating and serene, often overshadows the hidden agendas and secret dealings that go on behind the scenes. In reality, the probing of space has just as much to do with politics as with mankind’s actual zest for knowledge. From promoting national status through international competition, to dealing with...

To Lease or Not to Lease
There is always much debate around the subject or owning vs. leasing, anything. We all immediately assume owning is the right choice because why lease it when you can own it, right? Or maybe wrong? I will further discuss the advantages and disadvantage of leasing a medical office, medical equipment and office furniture.
Medical Office or Headquarters
Advantages of leasing a medical office over owning is freeing up working capital. With the money that is freed up from a lease payment and not a property payment you can focus more on other aspects of the business. Also, the ability to borrow funds, if needed, are is there as opposed to if you have a commercial...

Every day, many fossil fuel consuming contraptions spew out gases that pollute the environment. However, when the fuel supplies for these devices run out, they will grind to a halt. To prevent this, the United States needs to find an alternative to unstable and polluting energy sources before it’s too late (Rouge). It also needs to advance in technological status in order to stay above advancing third-world countries, and retain its current level of hegemony (Glaser). Space Based Solar Power Satellites, which are satellites that collect the sun’s energy and beam it down to the Earth, solve for all these concerns (Rouge). Thus, the United States Federal Government should provide grants for...

Kessler Syndrome, also known as the Kessler Effect; Collisional
Cascading; or Ablation Cascade, is the product of the abundance of
space debris in LEO (Low Earth Orbit). The Kessler Effect was
suggested by NASA scientist Donald J. Kessler, giving the effect its
name. Kessler proposed this theory in 1978, in a paper named the
"Collision Frequency of Artificial Satellites: The Creation of a
Debris Belt." The effect turned out to be constant/true, essentially
giving Kessler his reputation among his coworkers at NASA and in the
general science community.
The Kessler Effect, when debris in LEO
makes contact with other debris, this impact creates smaller pieces of
debris that collide with smaller...

The Space Race was a war of firsts between the United States of America and the Union Soviet Socialist Republics. But it was also the culmination of the dreams of man for many millennia and the team who worked on the space programs were able to discover what so many of the people that came before and after them could only dream of. It was an endeavor that all of humanity was invested in at the time. It was a testament to the power of the human spirit and it showed how nothing was impossible if we persevered and strived to be better.
The space race did not start as one would expect with the respective American and Soviet space agencies. But rather it began with the German V2 missile...

Research Article 2 - Use of mobile phones in trains:
Place is also doubled through being able to communicate with others using a mobile phone on the train. The article written by Berry and Hamilton (2010) explores the way mobility encompasses everyday travel, using mobile telecommunications and movement through public spaces. The article investigates “how mobile phones participate in place-making in transitional places” (Berry & Hamilton 2010: 114) and suggests that users of mobile phones are able to pluralise place on the train to create a sense of being “at home” to ease discomfort of being “in-between” places. People can create their own sense of place through communicating with family...

In 2005 former President George W. Bush instituted the Constellation Program. This program set ambitious, local goals for the National Aeronautic Space Agency (NASA)(Chang). When President Barack Obama took office, however, he set out to change NASA’s objectives. Shifting focus away from local space, President Obama’s plan centered on exploring asteroids and later even Mars (Malik). Unfortunately, or rather maybe fortunately, the funding and laws needed to enact these new policies were stalled for several weeks as a result of the 2011 budget crisis. While NASA and several other federally-funded agencies were distressed at their momentary state of limbo (Moskowitz), this stall gave experts...

The Airline Deregulation Act was signed into law in 1978 and allowed the airline industry to be deregulated which lifted restrictions on where they were allowed to fly (Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum, 2007). This also allowed the airline carriers to be competitive so they needed new ways to operate in order to provide services that travelers were searching for when choosing an airline. One innovation that was pioneered by the major airline carriers in the early 1980s that collectively represented a radical change from the era of regulation was the hub-and-spoke system (Wensveen, 2007). This paper will discuss what the airline hub-and-spoke system is and how...

The film “Office Space” depicts several employees at a software firm trying and failing at rebelling against the company they work for. The revolutions against the management and their subsequent failures are explained by Karl Marx’s theories on the proletariat and bourgeoisie in The Communist Manifesto. The problem that the workers encountered was a result of not going far enough in their attempts at improving their lives.
In proving the failed rebellions of the employees can be explained by The Communist Manifesto, it must first be proven that the movie accurately represents the struggle between the proletariat and bourgeoisie classes. In this movie the employees at Initech and their...

The dental office floor plan detailed above clearly and cleanly divides the dental space into 3 clear segmented areas: non-clinical (patient and administration), clinical, (dental delivery) and clinical support (supplies, storage, and laboratory). The non-clinical space has the most diverse user traffic patterns since patients and family members, clinical, and non-clinical staff may use this area. This non-clinical space should not be blended with the clinical and clinical support areas. The bottleneck areas are the patient in-take and out-take or registration area of the patient reception desk. Inherently, all dental practices have practice waste, complexity, and variation built into the...

The idea of first-mover advantage is similar to the old adage, "the early bird gets the worm." In business, being the first company to sell a new product may provide long-lasting benefits or competitive advantages. Most researchers use the term, "first mover" to refer to the first company to enter a market, not the first company to develop a product (the inventor). First movers are also called market pioneers. The benefits of pioneering may result in market dominance and higher-than-average profitability over time. There are several reasons why these benefits may develop, but research has shown that being the first mover does not always provide advantages. Sometimes there are even...

Although the technology is kept on advancing from day to day, there are some clinics that are still using old method in handling their records. Piles of files in registry counter sometimes make the place looks messy and it takes a large space to store all the records of their patients. Sometimes, they cannot find a record due to misplace and the records might be lost. Each time they want to retrieve the records, they have to find based on the series number which sometimes the file is placed not according to the series number. This process will take more time than it should be. There are some clinics that are already...

Because recycling in the United States is not mandatory, many troubles have risen out of it. There are multiple ways in which the United States Government can enforce the act of recycling. furthermore, there are multiple causes as to why they should make sure that persons are really recycling.
To begin, there are multiple ways in which the United States Government can enforce the proceed of recycling. One way could be that they could overtake a regulation asserting that all people could be compelled to have a recycling service. I believe that if the people are compelled to have the service, then they will seem that they have no choice but to recycle just so that they can get their money’s...

a)The Proscenium Arch StageThis stage is the traditional stage, where the audience is seated in one large block facing the stage, with a definite division between the audience and the stage. This division is usually in the form of an arch or a frame, called the proscenium arch.Advantages: This stage is the most common, and most of the worlds scripts were designed with this kind of staging in mind. It also allows much more realism and special effects, as the audience only watches from one side, so tricks can be concealed and props/scenery/actors can be positioned, ready for action, only just...

Why Stuff ExpandsThere is a reasonable explanation to the question of why water expands both when heated and cooled. Not only is the explanation reasonable, but the effects of this odd property have their own advantages and disadvantages as well.This process of expansion by cooling starts when the water temperature nears 4° C. The hydrogen atoms begin to line up into neat rows of six molecules, but the water retains the same density, except for the slight drop that is common with most matter just before solidification. Once the water temperature has dropped to 0° C, the rows of molecules connect at the ends to form an open-ended hexagon. Because of the empty spaces...

Hydropower as an Alternative Energy Source
Water provides a very valuable resource. We use dams built to run water through turbines and produce electricity. There are many advantages and disadvantages to hydropower, though there are more advantages. It is reasonable inexpensive to maintain, and is a clean source. There are issues with dams blocking fish swimming in the river, but there are ways to help them. Hydropower is well balanced between the electricity needs and the needs of the environment.
Hydropower makes up 90 percent of the United States’ energy from a renewable source. It is the nation’s largest renewable resource. People have built dams since ancient times to control the...

Opinion paper on returning to the moonOver the last three decades one of the most talked over and questioned subjects has been whether or not to return to the moon. Many people have the view of "been there, done that" when it comes to the moon, and believe that we should look ahead, not behind. However I think that returning to the moon still has many advantages to offer us.For example, it has now been discovered that there is a possibility of water on the moon, frozen in the polar icecaps. The water is thought to have originated from comets and asteroids hitting the moon. This is a very important discovery for science as finding water on the moon means that we can find...

Communication has come a long way from the sign language used by prehistoric man to the modern ways like e-mail, cellular phones, etc. This evolution, which was not an overnight process, saw the development of languages, written script, development of postal services, invention of telephones and internet, etc. Invention of the telephone in 1876 by Graham Bell changed the way man communicated to long distances. Instead of the snail mails, man began using telephones which transmitted the messages instantaneously and also to the correct person as well as get a reply at the same instant. With its growth in popularity, many new innovations were added to the basic telephone, one of which is the...

General Blaskowitz, the Army Group G Commander’s assigned objective was to maintain possession of the Southern coast of France at all costs. The ability to counter the threat of an Allied invasion of Southern France would require reinforcement and fortification of Army Group G units, which, together, constituted the German Center of Gravity in the Southern France Theater of Operations. Army Group G’s leadership attempted to accomplish this task in a number of ways:
The factor of Force bore heavily on the German defensive capabilities. The demands of Operation OVERLORD created significant shortfalls in terms of unit strength, force structure, combat power and overall readiness among...

Most people say being stupid will lead no where. They claim that t is the worst possible condition in which to spend one's life, and if possible, it should be completely avoided. They would even suggest if the symptoms of stupidity are caught in the early stages, it could easily be treated by a surgeon. Yet, perhaps if people took a closer look at some of the advantages stupidity had to offer, they would not have such a negative attitude toward it. After reading this paper, one will understand the advantages of stupidity.The first advantage is very easy to understand. Stupid people are never asked to do a lot. Many have noticed that people tend to steer away from someone they feel...

Rockets In Ancient times
The first rocket like device was invented around 100BC by a Greek named Hero of Alexandria. This device was called an aeolipile. It consisted of a sphere mounted on a water kettle. A fire beneath the kettle turned the water to steam, which then traveled through pipes to the sphere and was expelled through two L-shaped pipes that caused the sphere to rotate.
When rockets as we know them were first invented is not known. The first date we know true rockets were used was the year 1232, however it is believed possible that the Chinese had primitive rocket like devices before this. At this time the Chinese were at war with the Mongols. During one of...

The rising cost of energy gives homeowners an opportunity to explore alternative heating and cooling systems. Geothermal heat pumps are one available option. Even though geothermal heat pumps are expensive, their efficiency and reliability will provide a value capable of recovering the high installation cost. The tremendous benefits this system provides will overcome the additional cost.
Geothermal heat pumps are different from other heat pumps in that they use ground heat instead of extracting heat out of the air. This provides greater efficiency especially as the air temperature becomes very cold. “While many parts of the country experience seasonal temperature extremes – from scorching...

The effects of being short "I wish I were taller" is the thought that I have when all my friends are towering over me and when things are out of my reach. Even thought I am still in the stage of adolescent, I knew I am destined to be short like all of my family members. I used to be frustrated with my height, however, as I grow up, mentally, I realize the benefits of being short exceed the disadvantages.Since short peoples tend to have short arms and legs, the obvious disadvantage of being short is the inability to get a thing that is out of reach. For example, I have to stand on a chair to get an item from the top of a cabinet. However, the most daunting effect of...

The Woman's Roles during the Depression Era
The U.S. experienced a Depression in 1929. The American economy collapsed and millions of people were out of jobs. The government's role during this time of economic crisis was to assist the citizens of this country in any way possible. This sometimes led to the development of experimental programs and projects. Greenbelt, Maryland, can be characterized as such. Greenbelt was a planned community designed to house low- to middle-income families. It attempted to provide a safe and cooperative environment where parents and children alike could live safely and harmoniously. It was built in 1936.
The Greenbelt museum is a model of the homes built...

One of the many uses of glass is to make containers such as bottles and jars for storing food and drinks. It has several advantages, and until recently, it was considered the best packaging material for almost any product.
The most important advantage is that glass containers do not release any chemicals or smells that can spoil the food and drinks that are put in them. The contents remain safe to consume as long as they have not expired. Also, for the same reason, glass does not pollute soil and underground water when thrown in landfills. Another advantage is that although glass can be moulded into any shape by using heat, it can withstand high temperatures, and so food products such as...

The primary purpose of this concept vehicle is to be able to transport a crew of four to six from Low Earth Orbit (LEO) to Low Martian Orbit (LMO). Once in orbit, the crew takes the Landing Module (LM) down to a Martian Outpost (which is pre-existing for the purpose of this concept). In addition, the LM should be able to link back up with the Mars Crew Transport Vehicle (MCTV) that stays in Martian orbit. Also, the MCTV should be able to return to LEO automatically to resupply and pick up another load of crew members.
To achieve these parameters, the MCTV is essentially designed to be a miniaturized Space Station with the ability to maneuver out of LEO. The MCTV is of modular design,...
