When I was younger, I used to love going to amusement parks because roller coasters fascinated me. These beastly machines are usually made of steel or wood, can go as fast as 120 miles per hour, and reach the height of 420 feet. It amazes me why average people like me would trade the tranquility of the ground to be high up in the air, being tossed around with such brutality and roughness, like vegetables in a food processor. Even still I enjoyed riding these fast amazing machines, sometimes so fast, that no matter how hard I tried to scream, my cry would not come out, as if it was trapped… A photograph is something I can look at and it can bring back so many memories. When I look at my family in that picture, I can take myself back to that day. My family is people I love and become happy to know that they are there for me when I need them. Seeing this picture of when I was younger, I can remember hearing my mother saying I love you in a soft, comforting voice. I can feel her soft hands on my hand as my brother is next to me making funny noises. Hearing my father say knocks it off to my brother and I can feel the feeling of warmth knowing I have these people in my life. I can remember the first time my parents let me and bought me a cell phone. I got that overwhelming of being grown up and being able to be a little more independent. Feeling as if I was someone older then I was, I never wanted to put my phone down. I felt as if people looked at my differently because I was on the phone and actually using it. I remembered the warmth it gave off when I was on the phone and the buzzing noise it made when someone called or texted me. When I was younger, taking an elevator was a scary moment. Roaring noises came from the closed doors as the button turns orange and the sound…
The Mystical Machine
Electricity! Power! Steel! Circuits! Code! All are things that separated would be just a list of well, things, but if put together create a technological advancement that the majority of society practically knows nothing about. If asked what these five things these five things made together most people would be confused until given a hint that we use it, in some way, shape or form, every day. Most people instantly say “the computer”.
Yes the computer, created in the 1950’s…
it kinda breaks my heart when people judge me for caring about the loss of my son. I talk about it still because it was such an eye opener. And an amazing one at that. I got pregnant at a very young age, I feel for all the young moms out there because it made me realize age is just a number. Doesn't matter how old you are, it matters if you can be a strong enough person in the end. I found out about my baby boy July 20th 2013. I had a pretty bad drug problem at that time so I had no idea what to…
Cats are amazing creatures and a gift from God.
Cats are strong, with flexible bodies, quick reflexes, razor sharp retractable claws, and teeth adapted to killing small prey. As nocturnal hunters, cats use their acute hearing and ability to see in almost darkness to locate prey. Cats hear sounds too faint for human ears, they can also hear sounds higher in frequency than humans can perceive. 
Most Cats have incredibly soft fur that is irresistible to pet. As you stroke the velvety fur they…
efficient design and allow computers to perform multiple functions rather than being used for one specific purpose. The Von Neumann model uses memory, system buses, and Boolean operators to communicate programs and perform functions.
The computer is an electronic device that operates under the control of instructions that are stored in memory. The idea of storing memory or instructions within the computer came from John Von Neumann. Von Neumann architecture can be described as a stored program design. A…

Types of Memory
Plasticity: the brains ability to change as result of experience
Plasticity is greatest during childhood
However, plasticity persists throughout life
It occurs by changing the pattern of connectivity between neurons
Short term memory: memory for information currently help in current consciousness
Capacity of STM
-this is also known as phonological memory
it can be assessed using span tests
Miller in 1956 suggested that span is 7 +/- 2
He denotes that…

What intrigues me about machine tooling and technology?
Ever since I was a young boy, I have been interested in working in fields that require hands on performance. Starting around the age of seven, I would travel to different jobs sites with my dad. I thought that it was amazing how he could do anything. While I observed him, I couldn’t help but absorb his passion to create things. He has always encouraged me to experience new opportunities. When I struggled with something, he would have…
