My Educational Experience As a freshman in college, I have had numerous experiences with education. Although some of my educational experiences have been negative most of them to date have been positive and very beneficial to me as a student. Many of my educational experiences have been from various sources. Such as, educational videos, the news, lectures, and many other sources. An educational experience I have encountered is watching Bill Nye the Science Guy videos in my 7th grade earth science class. My class would watch a video on what topic we were discussing that week in class. These videos are very easy to understand and informational. Watching the videos would give me a better understanding about the material we were going over. Over the years I have learned that I learn and remember things better by seeing them on an educational video rather that just listening to the teacher lecture. Watching videos in 7th grade was an immense benefit to my learning. In my college experience I haven’t watched any educational videos to help my learning and understanding of the material. The classes I have been enrolled in, the professors lecture the material and my fellow students and I take notes on the lecture. In America today, many children sit in front of the television and watch it for hours at a time. Thus, watching the videos at school would keep them more interested in the material because it is what they are accustomed to doing. Watching the educational videos could suggest for education in America that the teachers and students are ”bored” (Gatto). The teachers cold just put in the videos to pass the time and keep their students occupied and quiet until it is time to go home. Another educational experience I have encountered is use of Promethean Boards in my math and science…...

Compunere Cu Titlul - Limba Româna Este Patria Mea

...visele mele sunt în limba română. Totul în viața mea se învârte în jurul acestei limbi, pe care nu doar că o vorbesc și o înțeleg, dar care a devenit o parte din mine, fără de care nu mă pot imagina. Privind toate acestea nu e prea mult dacă spun că eu sunt român pentru că vorbesc românește. Nici măcar nu contează dacă locuiesc sau nu în România. România, ca spațiu geografic în care s-a cristalizat poporul român, popor care a dat naștere limbii române, este foarte importantă. Fără România limba română nu ar fi existat. Dar odată fundamentată, limba română se ridică deasupra teritoriului geografic. Limba română devine moștenirea poporului român, transmisă prin viu grai sau prin scris tuturor urmașilor. În felul acesta, oriunde m-aș afla pe acest glob pământesc sau de ce nu chiar în afara acestei planete, eu, la fel ca ceilalți oameni care vorbim limba română suntem români. Așa cum un melc își duce în spate propria cochilie, fiind peste tot și în orice moment acasă, tot așa și eu port cu mine propria-mi casă - limba română. Dacă în primii ani de viață, limba română a fost doar un instrument cu ajutorul căruia am interacționat cu ceilalți oameni din jurul meu, odată cu trecerea timpului a devenit patria mea. Ea este locul comun în care mă pot înțelege cu părinții, frații și cunoscuții mei. Pe teritoriul patriei mele, format din cuvintele limbii române știu cel mai bine să simt, să iubesc, să visez, să cred și să mă rog. Fără patria mea, limba română, m-aș simți fără......

Mea Heat Exchanger Design

...designed in this project is lean/rich MEA heat exchanger E-114. This heat exchanger is a counter flow shell and tube heat exchanger and is designed to heat up the rich MEA stream flowing from the CO2 absorber to the stripper. The principle that is applied is heat exchange between cold stream and hot stream which in this case the heat energy is transferred from the lean MEA stream to the rich MEA stream. Apart from this, the chemical engineering design for this heat exchanger includes the determination of its dimensions and heat exchange coefficient as well as pressure drop. The mechanical design covers the design of pressure vessel, head, supports and piping. In addition, the operating design which includes the commissioning, start-up, shutdown and maintenance procedures, process control, and HAZOP study is considered. 2.0 Process Description Figure 2.1 Schematic of rich/lean MEA heat exchange process flow sheet The lean/rich MEA heat exchange process is presented in Figure 2.1. The MEA-2 stream containing rich CO2 is flowing from CO2 absorber and enters the heat exchanger to be heated up from 61°C to 80°C by MEA-7 before entering the stripper. The MEA-7 is then cooled down from 105°C to 84°C when pass through the heat exchanger and recycle back to the CO2 absorber. The cold stream in this case is MEA-2 and MEA-3 while the hot stream is MEA-7 and MEA-8. 3.0 Chemical Engineering Design 3.1 Design Methodology The rich/lean MEA heat exchanger is a counter flow......

On January 1, 2010, Lester Company purchased 70% of Stork Corporation's $5 par common stock for $600,000. The book value of Stork net assets was $640,000 at that time. The fair value of Stork's identifiable net assets were the same as their book value except for equipment that was $40,000 in excess of the book value. In the January 1, 2010, consolidated balance sheet, goodwill would be reported at $177,143. When the value implied by the purchase price of a subsidiary is in excess of the fair value of identifiable net assets, the workpaper entry to allocate the difference between implied and book value includes a 1. debit to Difference Between Implied and Book Value. 2. credit to Excess of Implied over Fair Value. 3. credit to Difference Between Implied and Book Value. c. 3 If the fair value of the subsidiary's identifiable net assets exceeds both the book value and the value implied by the purchase price, the workpaper entry to eliminate the investment account debits Difference Between Implied and Book Value.

Egt 1 Task 1

...EGT 1 Task 1 A. 1. The profit maximization approach used when total revenue and total cost are compared is the largest positive gap or profit gained between total revenue less total cost. In the table provided the largest profit or profit maximization would be $540. When you produce 8 items profit is at its highest point. To calculate total revenue you take the price times the quantity and to calculate total cost you take the sum of variable and fixed costs. 2. The profit maximization approach used when marginal revenue and marginal cost are compared is to take the marginal revenue less the marginal cost. In this process you look at how each additional unit affects total revenue and total cost. Marginal revenue is equal to the change of total revenue divided by change in quantity and Marginal cost is equal to the change in total cost divided by change in quantity. Once marginal cost exceeds marginal revenue it is not effective to produce the product and there is no longer a profit maximization. The profit maximization approach when using marginal revenue and marginal cost is to make as many products as you can until marginal cost equals marginal revenue. B. 1. Marginal revenue it the change in total revenue divided by the change in quantity. To get total revenue so that you can calculate marginal revenue you need to take the price times quantity less total cost. Marginal revenue becomes elastic and stays constant when there is perfect competition. But marginal revenue usually...

...Running Head: Children's Literature Task 1 1 Children;s Literature Task 1 Arthur Carroll Western Governor's University Children's Literature Task 1 2 Children's Literature Task 1 It is well known that the world is filled to the brim with a rich history in athletics, education, science, politics, and the arts. What is not common knowledge is the history and richness of children's literature and how it eventually became what it is today. Just like most things, what we now know as children's literature is nothing like what it was originally, it has transformed into something else entirely. Nonetheless, it has as colorful a history as it does some of it's own books. Before children's literature was ever even written down it was given to children in a less tangible way; orally. Prior to publishers like Scholastic and Golden Books existence, the technology to write books was long and tedious, especially if the author was trying to make many copies. So instead, children's literature was told out loud where many could hear it at once and the time factor for preparation was at a minimum. Once authors had better technology to help simplify the process of physical writing, oral literature transformed into written literature. It wasn't always computers or even typewriters though, written used to literally mean written. Like the transformation from mouth to pen, pen evolved to......

...is whether the phenomenon and the attribute(s) of interest are directly observable or must be estimated through substitution. For example, current accounting standards require inventory be valued at (measured at) the lower of its cost or market. Further, FASB Statement of Financial Accounting Concepts No.5, Recognition and Measurement in Financial Statements of Business Enterprises, discusses different measurement attributes of assets and liabilities: historical cost, current cost, current market value, net realizable value, and present value of future cash flows. Let us consider the phenomenon of interest to be a particular item of inventory and the attribute of interest to be the current market value of this item of invent­ tory. Exhibit 1 illus­ trates direct observation and estimation of the relevant phenomenon (the item of inventory) and the relevant attri­ bute (the current market value). Direct observa­ tion of the relevant phenomenon requires observation of the par­ ticular item of in­ ventory on hand (or an identical item).

Bunica Mea

...Bunica mea Eu cred că un copil poate spune că a avut o copilărie fericită mai ales atunci când şi-a petrecut-o alături de bunicii lui. Bunicii întotdeauna vor putea să te facă să râzi, vor ghici toate dorinţele tale cele mai ascunse şi îţi vor mângâia copilăria cu zâmbete calde şi multă iubire. Bunica mea este cea mai bună din lume. Are ochii de culoarea ciocolatei, calzi, parcă tot timpul zâmbitori. Părul grizonat e tuns scurt şi îi încadrează faţa ovală, crestată puţin de anii bătrâneţii. Nu e înaltă, e plăpândă şi subţire însă de multe ori mă uimeşte cu forţa de care dă dovadă. Duce pe rând câte zece găleţi cu apă la grădină, ca să ude straturile şi parcă nu oboseşte deloc. Iar când se întoarce din grădină, întotdeauna îmi aduce ceva bun: o pară, un măr, un pumn de căpşuni. Bunica mea face cele mai bune prăjituri. Are reţete vechi, numai de ea ştiute. Are şi un caieţel vechi în care sunt scrise toate aceste reţete dar nu îl foloseşte niciodată. Uneori îl iau la răsfoit şi când găsesc câte o reţetă care mi se pare delicioasă îi spun: * Îmi faci prăjitura aceasta? Şi întotdeauna o pregăteşte pentru mine cu drag. Şi toate le ştie pe de rost. De multe ori încerc să o surprind cu câte o reţetă din caietul ei de care sunt sigură că nu îşi aminteşte dar ea doar îmi zâmbeşte şi îmi pregăteşte prăjitura. O iubesc mult. Şi nu pentru că mă răsfaţă cu bunătăţi şi cu cadouri, ci pentru că de multe ori mă trezesc uitându-mă la ea şi întrebându-mă cum a fost viaţa acestei......

...MBA 1. Is Warren Buffett’s decision to bet against the dollar a good one? Why or why not? Yes Warren Buffett’s decision to be against thedollar is a good one. Buffett is betting that American trade deficit will not be restored and the country’s practice of borrowing from abroad to pay for the current goods and services will not stop. The USA borrows from abroad to finance its trade deficit, on top of that the USA government spends more money than it takes from taxes. The budget deficit increases the gap between country’s national savings and national income and and also widens the deficit in the current account by necessitating the country to borrow more money from other foreign countries. This widened current deficit puts strain on the USA currency in the financial markets. If Americans are going to buy inexpensive imported goods and the USA government has a budget shortage, I think Warren Buffett is making a fantastic move by betting against the dollar. Between 2002 and 2007 the dollar has fallen by 40 percent. 2. Why has the United States developed such large current account deficits? I and a lot of people believe the United States has developed such a large current account deficit is the trade deficit. The USA is importing more goods and services more than it exports so it has held trade deficit since the late 1960s and this trade deficit has been mushrooming at an unbelievable rate since 1997. The increasing oil prices in the last few years has helped......

Explain why the values 102 and 00102 are equivalent. The values are equivalent because it’s de same numerical meaning. Everything else after the one is a zero and there is no need to show the zero. 3. Based on the breakdown of the decimal and binary systems in this lab, describe the available digit values and the first four digits of a base 5 numbering system. You can use the binary system as a reference, where the available digit values are 0 and 1 and the first four digits are 1, 2, 4, and 8. In base 5, we use only 5 digits 0, 1, 2, 3 , and 4. The first four digits would be 1, 5, 25, and 125 4-Using the Internet and the Help files in Excel, explain why creating a converter from decimal to binary would be more difficult to construct. Hint: you should consider the conditional evalua- tion of whether the decimal value remaining is larger than the binary digit value. There are many converters already build into to excel itself. =DEC2BIN (9, 4) is a decimal to binary converter for the number 9 and it will show 4 places.

Mea (Masyarakat Ekonomi Asia)

...BAB I PENDAHULUAN I. LATAR BELAKANG Masyarakat Ekonomi Asia (MEA) atau Pasar Bebas Asia merupakan kawasan yang akan dibentuk oleh Indonesia dan negara-negara di Asia Tenggara. Bertujuan untuk meminimalisasi adanya hambatan-hambatan dalam melakukan perdagangan lintas kawasan. Memungkinkan satu negara dapat menjual barang dan jasa dengan mudah ke negara lain di kawasan Asia Tenggara yang tentunya akan membuat kompetisi antar negara semakin ketat. Oleh karena itu, keberadaan MEA menjadi sebuah langkah awal bagi Indonesia untuk mengembangkan kualitas perdagangan khusunya di kawasan Asia Tenggara. MEA memiliki dua sisi bagi Indonesia. Yang pertama, MEA menjadi kesempatan yang baik untuk menunjukkan kualitas dan kuantitas sumber daya yang dimiliki Indonesia. Yang kedua, dapat menjadi bumerang bagi Indonesia apabila tidak memanfaatkannya dengan baik. Berkurangnya hambatan perdagangan akan berdampak pada meningkatnya kuantitas ekspor dan impor yang akhirnya akan meningkatkan Gross Domestic Product bagi Indonesia. Dengan adanya perdagangan bebas, Indonesia dapat meningkatkan ekspor. Kegiatan ekspor impor dapat menumbuhkan hubungan harmonis antarbangsa. Ekspor menjadi perhatian dalam memacu pertumbuhan ekonomi seiring dengan berubahnya strategi pada industri impor ke industri ekspor. Akan tetapi harus tetap waspada akan resiko kompetisi yang muncul dengan banyaknya barang impor yang masuk dan mengancam industri lokal dalam bersaing dengan produk luar negeri...
