One of my fears happened when I was 8 years old, It was a great day to play with my twin sister, we were alone on the stairs, our favorite game is pretending to be chefs and being in a restaurant so we were playing with our cooking sets with pots, plates, we will also pick some plants outside for our pretend vegetables and some plastic toys. I touched this very realistic toy, I showed it to my sister when it suddenly moved, I threw the toy and I shriek so loud that our uncle who was in the shower got out, my grandfather who was sleeping upstairs almost fell on the stairs, my grandmother who was outside got it and asked what had happened. I was frozen but shaking, I couldn’t speak, and I pointed towards the toy. I saw it moving, that was when I started to cry. My uncle and my grandparents were all looking at the “toy”, my uncle picked it up and I ran away and cried in my room. It was the day I got a fear on millipedes. When I am afraid of something like the millipedes and also the dogs, I will froze, I will have trembling hands and I will have a little breathing problems. My fear on dogs started when I was 10, I had dogs as pets before, but one day my grandfather got a dog, a bulldog, he’s name is chippy. I love to run around in the house when I was younger. He was cute but he will always chase and try bite me, I guess I’m not scared of dogs it’s just getting bitten by dogs I’m scared of. Just the other day when I was waiting for my friend to pick us up, there was a guy who…
GEOG 209-14B Assignment 1: Online space and the body
GEOG209-14B (HAM) - Contemporary Cultural Geographies
Assignment 1: On-line space and ‘the body’ (this assignment will be discussed in class. It is based on (but not exactly the same as) Exercise 4 outlined on page 62 of your textbook Social Geographies).
Spend some time over a period of a few days in an on-line space such as on a social networking site (e.g. Facebook), Skyping, blogging, in an on-line forum, emailing, posting/commenting…
Millions of boulders and rocky asteroids careen through space in orbit together, forming a deadly swarm and a menace to navigation. Entering such a field with a spacecraft would be sheer suicide.
Rock actually requires more energy to melt and vaporise than does iron, because as little as 50% of the energy may be absorbed from an energy weapon, depending on the exact composition, with the rest of the energy radiated harmlessly into open space. This makes the estimations of firepower presented here…
How Does Space and Time Compression Afford Us Information on Many Places and People
First of all to understand how time and space compression affects us you have to know what time and
Space compression is.
You have to understand the geographical definition.
Time and space compression is the speed of transportation making things and places closer.
Time and Space Compression Ushers in Technology
Time and space compression gives us pathways to new technologies or even to new information.…
Artist Research Paragraph: A Sense of Space
Fairfield Porter, an influential painter, was born on September 18, 1975 in Winnetka, Illinois. He wasn’t only a painter; Porter was also a critic, theorist, and scholar. He enjoyed poetry and leftist politics. His many talents were created from his experience attending Harvard University and through “studying under Arthur Pope, a well-known archeologist and historian of ancient Persian art”(Wolf). His style was intriguing to his many…
Investments on Space Exploration
In the late 1950s, the United States had begun its exploration in space. The country has overcome many milestones since then including landing on the moon and entering other planet’s atmospheres. However, there has been a profusion of controversy about whether or not the government should continue to invest in space exploration and equipment. While exploring space offers new opportunities for advances in research and helps to ensure the planet’s safety, the money…
I said to myself: three days
and you'll be seven years old.
I was saying it to stop
the sensation of falling off
the round, turning world.
into cold, blue-black space.
But I felt: you are an I,
you are an Elizabeth,
you are one of them.
Why should you be one, too?
I scarcely dared to look
to see what it was I was.
I gave a sidelong glance
--I couldn't look any higher--
at shadowy gray knees,
trousers and skirts and boots
and different pairs of hands
lying under the lamps.
I have never taken much interest in the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and their efforts until recently, and it was because of this curiosity that I came across a very well known disaster. The United States has always taken pleasure in its space exploration program and has been very successful in their efforts of getting man to the Moon and back. But, on January 28th, 1986 the space shuttle Challenger exploded only seventy-three seconds after take off from Cape Canaveral…
2. My first day of practice I was mentally and physically prepared for one mile. I survived the half-mile warm-up and stretching, not expecting what was yet to come. Our workout for that day was three miles on the track, which wasn’t that bad. For my first couple of weeks I stayed on the track, and then I was ready to run the trails. I wasn’t familiar with the area, but I took directions well, running behind everyone, looking for the places they told me in relation to my destination. We’d…
Launches Space Age- History changed on October 4, 1957, when the Soviet Union successfully launched Sputnik I. The world's first artificial satellite was about the size of a beach ball (58 cm.or 22.8 inches in diameter), weighed only 83.6 kg. or 183.9 pounds, and took about 98 minutes to orbit the Earth on its elliptical path. That launch ushered in new political, military, technological, and scientific developments. While the Sputnik launch was a single event, it marked the start of the space age and…
The movie Office Space is about the struggles of happiness four men have at their work due to the humiliation brought upon them by their boss. Peter Gibbons is the programmer for a company called Initech. He spends his days staring at his desk instead of updating the bank software for the expected Y2K effect. Peter’s co-workers Samir and Michael go through their work every day hating their job just as much as Peter. Milton, another one of Peter’s co-workers, sits at his desk mumbling…
