It's one of the greatest tragedies of all time, yet few of us know the whole story. The story is of the misled, inexperienced Donner Party. It is the story of eighty-one emigrants who traveled in hopes of reaching the land of California. Forty-seven, whose hopes were crushed by many contributing factors. The most horrible and misleading factor of all was the human mind and its persistent need to explore and conquer everything, whether within reach or not in the shortest and fastest way possible. This aspect of taking the shortest route that led to the downfall, and in some cases, to death, of the Donner Party. The Donner Party was led by both Jacob and George Donner on a journey to California looking for better life (Manifest Destiny). The Party consisted of about 90 southerners that began their route in 1846 in Springfield, Illinois. The party had bought a guide but was not accurate and had little information on the path to California. When they had reached Fort Bridger, Wyoming heading through the Oregon Trail they had decided to take a shorter route. This route was supposed to take off 2 weeks of travel or 400 miles. Yet they did not now this route would bring many hardships and would add 100 miles, called the Hastings cutoff. The Hasting cutoff had led to pass the Great Salt Lake Desert and the Wasatch Mountains. They had reached the Sierra Nevada’s where it began to snow and had been stuck in snowfall for 5 crucial months. Many stayed in cabins near Tuckree Lake and…
their goals than a political party that is more diffuse and likely to splinter into factions.
D. Since the 1960s, the political gridlock between both major political parties (Democrats and Republicans) over the civil rights movement, over the Vietnam War, over the Watergate Scandal, and many other events since then has left the American public bitter and cynical about the party system being able to work for the benefit of all, not just for the benefit of a party. As a result people turn to…
The Conservative Party of Britain
Britain, as all other countries have gone through an immense change over time. This change does not limit itself in any aspect but the main focus is politics. Today it is taken for granted that Britain is a monarchy. So many people have become so accustomed to this that there seems no other way for this country to exist. The monarch today is accepted as merely a figure head, granted she has some powers. It was not like this though; there was a time when the monarch…
A party is social gathering of invited guests, typically involving eating, drinking, and entertainment. Just about everyone in America loves to loosen up and enjoy themselves at some point in their lives. Most achieve this simply by going out to a party. No matter the type of party, they all provide the similar purpose: a great time. Although the people who attend enjoy themselves, what about the person who hosted the party? Are my guests having a fun time? Are there enough food and drinks? These…
always thought that a surprise party is easy to organize, but things turns out to be more complicated in reality. After what I have been through from organizing the party, I realized that “everything is unpredictable”, because things always have the possibility to change even though for a second.
This was the first party that I have organized in my whole life. I am glad that my friends helped me out so that I could come up with more brilliant ideas about organizing the party. We made a plan before my…
This document entails the drawbacks of framework that the Donner Party was. This also will shed light on teamwork and effective functioning as a group.
Donner Party was an expedition, a migration in 1846-47, originating from Springfield, IL to reach California. Migration started with Two families (Reeds and Donners) consisting of a mix of age groups, majority of which were either Children (16) or Old, of the age bracket 50-60v and above. It is clear that group already lacks competitive and…
Political Parties didn’t always exist in America. George Washington warned to stay away from forming political parties in his farewell address. He believed that these parties would distract councils and weaken the public administration (Doc 4). Despite these warnings, Political parties still emerged in the 1790’s due to many different views on political aspects.
One party that emerged was the Federalists. The Federalists were led by Alexander Hamilton. Thomas Jefferson, leader of the other political…

1. The process flow diagram of the production system at Donner.
2. What size orders would you schedule on the CNC drill? On the CNC router?
Time taken to process the orders depends on the selected drilling method either
a) Manual drilling or CNC OR b) Using CNC Drill
Assumption 1: Manual Drilling is not done on all the available Manual Drill Presses in parallel.
Calculating time taken for Manual drilling and CNC Drilling:
flow of the production system at Donner? Draw a process flow diagram.
What orders would you schedule on the CNC drill? On CNC router?
Operation Setup Time (min) Run Time/board
Manual Drill 15 0.08*500 = 40
CNC Drill 240 0.004*500 = 2
Punch Press 50 1
CNC Router 150 0.5
a) CNC Drill vs Manual Drill
Let x be order size than
15 + 40x = 240 + 2x; x = 5.92;
From this equation we get x approximately equal to 6. So Donner Company should use the CNC Drill…
