I walk out of the dugout and the noises begin to fade; within seconds there is complete silence. I walk up on to the mound and begin to warm up, blocking out all elements and focusing on my target. On the pitchers mound I feel comfortable, motivated and determined. The environment settles in and I begin to feel content with my self. I get a thrill of happiness and this feeling of confidence takes over my natural competitiveness. Short of breath, I walk off the mound and sit in the dugout doing my homework on the batters just like I would be doing at home. To some, baseball is just a game. Some play for fun and others feel pressured by their families, but for me baseball is a lifestyle. I spend so much time on the field that it feels like a second home to me, almost like a pirate ship in the Caribbean where I am the captain and I protect my ship. I slowly walk out the dugout and head towards the field with my 8 other sailors, my brothers. With every pitch I control the game, controlling the pace and momentum I feel confident because I have my brothers behind me ready for any challenge that comes our way. Just like a real brothers we have issues which we, as a team, solve together. When I think about home, I think about my family, the warmth and comfort they offer. I know that when I walk out in the scorching hot sun onto that orange clay, that my brothers will help me defend that ship. Bottom of the ninth and we're up by one, as I am sweating profusely and nervous my brothers approach me and explain how they believe in me. I lift my hat, wipe the sweat off my forehead, and focus in on the batter. Looking into the batters eyes I can sense he is nervous and does not want to fail his team, but after taking a deep breath I lock in and find myself at home. " Strike three you're out!", yells the umpire as I set down my first opponent. Attacking my next opponents weakness I try to defeat him, it is a full count and I take a deep breath. I realize, even if I fail I know that not only will…

goalkeeper still has a
role to play. He must have strong muscles for goal kicks and
strong-arm muscles to enable him to throw the ball.
· Muscular Endurance - To keep the muscles contracting for the full
length of the match without them becoming tired or weak.
· Muscular Strength - the force your muscles exert when they contract.
This is an important part of football as it is a contact sport and it
is also very physical, players need to be able to guard the ball and
hold other players…
Pong with lots of triangles! When you think about it, you can find triangles in just about everything. In this exciting game, every time you hit the ball you’ve created another triangle! Trigonometry is the study of triangles, specifically right triangles and there is lots of Trigonometry in this game as well as Geometry.
When you serve the ball in ping pong you make a right triangle without even realizing it! Your Elbow is the point of one angle. When you start serving your forearm is at an angle…

spheres had a special name, they were called dragon balls. As the legend stated, a person who collects all seven dragon balls will get a wish from an eternal dragon. The eternal dragon was known as “Shenron” the master of all dragons since he had the power to grant any wish to a human being. Once a person collects all seven dragon balls, the sky will turn all dark, lighting will appear, and the dragon will appear or be summoned from the seven dragon balls. However, there was a trick or a special chant…
create value when it is incorporated into golf balls?
The value based business strategy: No it does not create value
There is no existing vertical chain in the business. The supplier of the technique exists but not the firm creating value nor the buyers (buyers maybe, we don’t know)
Creation of additional value is not possible either while the chain is not there- no bargaing.
Yes, it does create value because buyers would maybe pay more for a golf ball, which has a technique that tells if one can…
Money Ball Essay
Looking at Money Ball as another baseball movie with a happy ending is like looking The Social Network as a movie about a nerd and computer programming. There’s a lot to be learned from this film. Whether it’s a lesson about life, business or the actual sport itself. You get to experience how crooked and money driven the baseball business is, how the team with the deepest pockets acquires the best player and how the coaches and head hunters still operate with the old mentality…

craters of a steel ball on flour when dropped from a specific height. A steel ball is dropped at various heights over a bowl of flour. When the ball hits the flour, a crater is formed. What I am trying to investigate is the correlation between the height (x) at which the steel ball is dropped and the diameter (y) of the crater.
How does the diameter of the crater depend on the height at which the ball is dropped at?
Independent Variable: The height at which the steel ball is dropped at…

“Awesome Ball Girl” and Perception
In the short video of “Awesome Ball Girl”, there is a young ball girl working in the field that makes such a great catch, most professionals would not have been able to make. At the start of the video you would think that you are about to see a home run after a great hit, but my eyes were drawn elsewhere; just like the crowd and two teams. This shows the first stage in the perception process: selection…
