Evaluation Essay- Growing Into a Different Person Growing up is hard but learning the mistakes will make a person grow. The protagonist of the story will get over the past, live in the present, and realize who they are. Living in the present will only make them grow as a person and live life without the worry of the past. The piece that most accurately describes the process of growing up is “On the Bridge” by Strasser. This story is the most realistic because of the challenges, symbols, and realization. One way “On the Bridge” presents a true perspective of becoming mature is through the challenges Seth has to overcome. In the beginning of the story, Seth had never been in a fight in his life and scared to get into one. Seth crosses over the mature stage by overcoming his challenges along with Adam. Instead of confessing the truth, Seth mans up and supports Adam through a fight between three big guys. Seth is now brave and mature enough to protect his “friend.” Another way “On the Bridge” presents a realistic interpretation of growing up is through the use of symbolism. In this story, Seth wants to be a cool kid, not realizing that is not the true him. Adam’s leather jacket looked authentically old and worn, like he has been in a hundred fights with it. The denim jacket represents the tough and coolness of Adam. To be on the same level as Adam, Seth had to get a new denim jacket, rip the sleeves off, and wash it a hundred times. Another
Describe the bridge and how it distributes the forces acting on it. Including an explanation of what makes this type different then beam bridge.
A cantilever bridge could be said to be a variation on the basic beam bridge. The roadway of the bridge is held in place by cantilevers, which are long structures, or arms, projecting out into the water, but which are anchored on only one end. A diving board is a good example of a cantilever: although anchored on only one end, it can…

One Place to the Next: Bridges
What do you think of when you hear the word bridge? What do you think of when you see a bridge? Can you imagine what it would be like if there were no bridges to connect you from point “a” to point “b”? According to Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate dictionary a bridge is defined as, “a structure carrying a pathway or roadway over a depression or obstacle”. In a person’s life, there are many bridges. The bridges…
The most common design concept for a road bridge traditionally consists of some type of super structure resting on an abutment at each end as shown in Figure ES.1. There may also be one or more intermediate piers but they are incidental to the focus of this report. Because of natural, seasonal variations in air temperature, the bridge superstructure will change in temperature and tend to change dimension in its longitudinal direction as shown in Figure ES.1.
However, the supporting abutments are…
The Brooklyn Bridge was built to connect New York City to Brooklyn. It is located across the East River. The total length of the bridge is 6016 feet. Before the bridge was built, people used to have to cross the river by ferry. The Brooklyn Bridge was the first long-span suspension bridge. It was used to carry cars and also the first to use steel. It is also one of the oldest suspension bridges in the United States, which has been serving New Yorkers for nearly 125 years.

can use to do this is ‘bridge analysis,’ so called because you create a ‘bridge’ from one number to
another by breaking down the differences…
Building A Bridge
The Grapes of Wrath is truly an inspiring piece of literature that delivers many different insights into life. One thing that stuck out for me that I could relate to was how the Joad family was a very tight knit and close family. They knew that in the tough times they were facing that they would still have each other, and were very thankful for that. No matter who died, or who left, the remaining members of the family still stayed connected and close with each other. This really…
The total weight of the steelwork of the bridge, including the arch and approach spans, is 52,800 tonnes, with the arch itself weighing 39,000 tonnes. About 79% of the steel was imported from England, with the rest being sourced from Australia. On site, the contractors set up two workshops at Milsons Point, at the site of the present day Luna Park, and fabricated the steel into the girders and other required parts.
The bridge is held together by six million Australian-made…
The red bridge
One day John and I decided to explore the empty house on Ridge Street .When we arrived the whole place was quiet and creepy, John said to me “let’s go inside now as it seems nobody is around.” I nodded in agreement, so up the front path we went when all of a sudden the large wooden front door swung open and just as fast slammed shut. We both jumped, and half turned as if to run away .John laughed nervously, “ha “I said, and then I whispered, “It must have been the wind”. We walked…
