What would happen if you brought in infamous Henry David Thoreau and Ralph Waldo Emerson in the same room from their pasts and had them critique your life? Well, I believe that Thoreau and Emerson would highly disagree with the way I am living my life because I am living a complicated life, I do not question the ways of authority, and I aim to be well known as a hockey player. To start with, both Emerson and Thoreau would disagree with my abstruse life. Henry David Thoreau tests the ideas of Ralph Waldo Emerson about nature by living alone at Walden Pond. There he realizes that living simply upon nature deepens the mind, brings the soul up to its fullest potential, and influences the imagination to change our lives. Furthermore, in Nature, Emerson says, “Standing on the bare ground - my head bathed by the blithe air and uplifted into infinite space - all mean egotism vanishes. I become a transparent eyeball”. In this point Emerson describes that a simple life creates deeper thoughts and one is able to see more clearly. In my complex life, four things take it up, eating, sleeping, studying and playing hockey. I wake up at 3:30 every morning, go to hockey practice, go to school, eat, and do homework until I fall asleep at around 8:00 PM, and it starts all over again. According to both philosophers, I should stop this life where I have no free time to develop my mind, my soul, and my imagination. Thoreau also says, “We do not ride on the railroad; it rides upon us”. This means that some things which we believe make our lives simpler actually make it more complicated. Both these men believe that in order to understand the meaning of life you must live simply. In summary, both these wise men would tell me to live a simpler life in order to develop my mind, soul, and imagination, “Nothing is more sacred than the integrity of your own mind.”- Emerson. Not only would they ask me to live a simpler life, but they would also ask me to question my complicated one. To end with, Emerson would attempt to steer me away from perusing my dream of becoming a professional hockey player. Emerson views greatness differently from me and society. We see greatness as a way of happiness and exhilaration. However, Emerson views things differently, “Crossing a bare common, in snow puddles, at twilight, under a clouded sky, without having my thoughts any occurrence of…

The Two Powers
In the world of economics two major powerhouses rule, and those are the market based economic system and its polar-opposite the command economic system. These two systems are almost exact opposites in that one, the market-economy, is much more focused on keeping its consumers happy and prepared to buy more. The command economy on the other hand is much more determined centralized leaving the decision making to the few with little to no regard to the consumer only to the goals set…

Two-Species Continuous Models
In order to model the interaction of two species with continuous time, we need a system of two
differential equations. Typically, the system will look like:
= f x, y = terms describing growth of x + interaction terms
= g x, y = terms describing growth of y + interaction terms
= K2 x C 0 .5 x$y
= 3 y K x$y
Question 8 What would happen to each species in the absence of the other? How does the presence of

The Americans Dream
America is the strongest nation in the world because of the strong backs that hold it up. I believe that without an overwhelming sense of patriotism and pride America would have never been strong enough to make it through the many hardships we have had like two World Wars, the Great Depression, many conflicts and the billions of dollars in foreign aid we sponsor. It is my belief that America will stand strong…
the United States was the result of many different events and ideas.
