Jorie (& Jamie): A Deposition
The story is told from Jamie's point of view. Jamie is a thirteen year old girl and have little brother and a twin sister. The little brothers name is Calvin and her sisters name is Jorie. We do not know the name of her parents, but we do know that the father left the family and that in the end the mother went to prison. The narrator is limited, because we only hear the story from Jamie's perspective. (l. 7) "I want to see my mom now" is an example on how the narrator is limited. Jamie believes that if she tells the person we do not know (maybe the school nurse) about her mom, she would come and visit her mom. But Jamie does not know the better life with her family will not happen since something happened to Jorie and the mom ended up in prison for it. The narrator is limited because it has the effect that you see how the whole situation effects the girl. The anxiety, unawareness and fear she goes through is more clear to us if we as a reader is not certain about what happened. Because we do not know more than she does, it is as if we are experiencing the story with her, and we are exposed to what unfolds along side with her. It is a way for the reader to be able to identify with Jamie in an easier way. Jamie is not a typical girl because she experience things at home that is not normal for the typical girl. (ll. 11-12) "I hate how everybody treats me like a young kid when I am thirteen years old" She does behave like a typical teenager though, because she wants people to treat her like an adult and not a kid. Her wanting to be treated like an older person is enlarged by how her twin sister behaves. Because they are twins people cannot tell them apart and therefore she is sometimes mistaken for her sister, and then it is naturally for her to want to be treated differently because she sometimes is treated like her sister, who mentally is like a little child. (ll. 45-46) "It wasn't me it was jam-ie! Jamie went pee-pee in the bed! Shame-shame Jame- Jame! like she was five years old" this is a good example on how Jorie behaves. This is something that a child would do and not a girl who is thirteen years old. It is paradoxical that Jamie wants to be treated like she is older, because at the same time she is immature and does not fully understand the situation with her sister and mom. Jamie has the idea that everything is going to turn out well and it is immature of her to ignore what her mother has done. It is also immature of her not to see how inhumane it is to lock a person down in a cellar. It is not natural for at thirteen year old girl to understand what is morally correct and acceptable and as these episode shows she is immature and do not understand the severeness of the situation. Jamie is also afraid that she is like her sister and that she will end up in the cellar with her sister. That is a sign that she is anxious and that her sister has influenced her a lot. The reason why her sister has driven them crazy is of course because of her condition, but it is most importantly because no one can do anything about it, no matter what they do they cannot help the state of her condition and that leads to despair because the situation is unchangeable. The effect of the situation is different from each other. (l. 73) "At first Daddy wouldn't believe how bad Jorie could be" first the father goes in denial and then when he finds out how bad it is he leaves the family. This is an example on a person who is weak and cannot handle the situation and therefore just quits. It has a different impact on the mother. She stays with the family, because she does not have another choice and because she will try everything to make it work and hope for a brighter future. She keeps telling herself that it is no one's fault and that she does not deserve it. In the end she cannot handle it anymore and she puts Jorie in the cellar. Jamie does not tell much about how Calvin has it, but she knows that it has an impact on him. Calvin is also crying so maybe he does not fully understand the situation, but he knows that there is something wrong. Jamie describes Jorie's condition as a "spell" and that is because her condition sometimes just explodes and it is like she is possessed. The way she describes it is not normal when you are describing a condition. It is an immature way to describe the condition because it is as if she does not understand the meaning of the condition she has. (l. 28) "just naming these words scared me" when she calls it a spell, it is like what her father is doing, ignoring the truth of her condition. It is like she does not accept that it has happened and she will not except it because it is not fair. It is the same behavior the mom and dad has, they will not except that their daughter has this condition and therefore they react as they do.…...

Geology

...When I initially decided to take this geology course it was just to take a science class online that fit with my work schedule Now that I’m about to complete the semester I am ready to show just how much I learned. Sedimentary landforms are created by tiny particles of earth. These particles can be anything from stone to glass or tile. These particles are caused by weathering which is described as any natural force that breaks rocks into smaller pieces. The particles get washed away by rain, wind and water and eventually are deposited at the basin of rivers, lakes and oceans. When one layer solidifies another begins. This is known as deposition, one key factor is that these particles begin to settle so that the heavier pieces settle first and they settle deep. The smaller particles then build on top of them. After all of the deposition is done erosion takes place. During this process the rocks are weathered again. Then these particles undergo the lithification process by changing into rocks by compaction and cementation. The mineralogy of sedimentary rocks is made up of grains and cement. The clastic rocks were physically transported by wind, water, glaciers or gravity. When these rocks can no longer be moved they are deposited in either a high energy environment or a low energy environment. High energy environments include; storm dominated beaches, landslides and places were tsunamis occur. Low energy environments include lagoons, deep oceans, and deep lakes. Textures......

Atmospheric Issues

...Atmospheric Issues Anthony Smitt SCI/275 January 20, 2013 Christine Snyder Acid rain is the atmospheric issue I will be discussing in this writing. “Acid rain, also called acid precipitation or acid deposition, is precipitation possessing a pH of about 5.2 or below primarily produced from the emission of sulfur dioxide (SO2) and nitrogen oxides (NOx; the combination of NO and NO2) from human activities, mostly the combustion of fossil fuels” (Butler and Likens, 2012). I will be comparing and contrasting the indoor air pollutant tobacco smoke with acid rain. ”Tobacco smoke pollution, or secondhand smoke, comes from two places: smoke breathed out by the person who smokes, and smoke from the end of a burning cigarette” (Clean Air Council). “"Acid rain" is a broad term referring to a mixture of wet and dry deposition (deposited material) from the atmosphere containing higher than normal amounts of nitric and sulfuric acids” (U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, 2007). Acid rain comes from emissions of sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides into the environment. There are many different contributors to these types of emissions, both man-made and natural sources. Examples include natural sources like volcanoes or decaying vegetation, or fossil fuel combustion which is a man-made source (U.S. environmental Protection Agency, (2007). As the Chapter 9 Reading states, nitrogen oxides and sulfur dioxides in the atmosphere react with water to produce dilute solutions of......

Deposition Technique

...California Institute of Technology Physics 77 Vacuum Techniques and Thin Film Deposition Experiment 3 (October 2001) 1 Introduction Much of modern experimental physics is done under vacuum. Design and construction of vacuum apparatus is one of the most useful ”bread and butter” skills an experimentalist in condensed matter, atomic, or optical physics can have, and the subject of vacuum engineering is a vast one. This lab serves as an introduction to basic vacuum techniques and thin film growth, another often essential skill for condensed matter physicists. This lab is an optional prerequisite for Experiment 10, Condensed Matter Physics at Cryogenic Temperatures, for which you can grow your own samples for Weak Localization measurements if you choose. 2 Pressure and gas flow In vacuum work, pressures are almost always measured in millimeters of mercury, or torr. One torr is just the pressure necessary to support a column of mercury with a height of one millimeter. The conversion to units more familiar to readers of physics textbooks is 1atmosphere = 101kPa = 760torr There are two pressure regimes of interest to the scientist working with vacuum systems, and gases behave differently in each regime. The first, the viscous flow regime, describes the case where gas flows as a fluid, where the mean free path of the gas molecules is much smaller than the dimensions of the apparatus. The second, the molecular flow regime, describes the high-vacuum case, where the......

These kinds of filler metals are generally categorised in “Flux C.W”, “Self Shielded Flux C.W” and “Metal C.W”. Researches on C.Ws used for hardfacing on plane carbon steels, showed that hypo eutectic and eutectic compositions can increase the abrasion resistance. On the other hand addition of “Mn” shows some reductions in abrasion resistance and increasing in impact energy. Special coated electrodes with metal C.Ws had developed for welding of Ductile Cast Iron. This C.W can deposit weld metal same as base metal and also reduce costs in compare with E-Ni. C.Ws produced with “Ti” strip as tube......

Buffalo Creek Disaster

...its’ Buffalo Creek Operations. Pittston’s attorneys the attempt the old “divide and conquer” move, where it pits two of the most labor intensive aspects of discovery (depositions both of the plaintiffs and Pittston execs). The deposition of the plaintiffs required actual depositions in one city and physical examinations/testing in another. These two simultaneous events were meant to divide the manpower of the plaintiffs’ attorneys, and through the rigors of the examinations/testing, demoralize the plaintiffs. This extremely cumbersome for the attorneys, it was also for the plaintiffs. However, in a stroke of good fortune, the judge awards the plaintiffs mileage and a stipend for food, etc…and orders Pittson to pay for their hotel rooms. In another stroke of good fortune, the depositions depict the horror and terror survivors felt during the disaster. Each successive deposition is more graphic than the next. This is as upsetting for the plaintiffs to recall, as it is for opposing counsel to hear and record. But, as a matter of official record, these horrific tales lend credence to the mental anguish claims, but also gives the media access to first-hand accounts of the disaster. It is during the deposition of the Pittston execs that holes begin to be poked in their previous testimony. During depositions it is discovered that Pittston was the sole owner of Buffalo Creek Mining. That many of the so called corporate meeting minutes had been faked to appear like......

...body parts | Note: Some pollutants may not have direct health effects. Choose one of the following atmospheric issues: air pollution, global warming, ozone depletion, and acid deposition. Then, respond to the following: • What air pollutants combine and contribute to this issue? Acid deposition has many different combinations of airborne dry acidic particles and precipitation that fall to the earth. This will happen when it rain, snow, mist, and fog. Throughout the world the industry is growing so acid deposition is becoming dangerous. • Briefly describe the health and environmental problems caused by the selected atmospheric issue. When acid deposition falls into the lake or river it will harm both fish and land animals by drinking or eating. It will make them sterile or death. The plants will just die by absorbing the acid. As for humans it will do little effect for them. • Provide one key solution to help either reduce the effects or recover from the effects of the selected issue. It is hard to reduce the effects of acid deposition but there is one idea that is going around is coal washing. Coal washing is by making the coal smaller to washout the compound out of the coal that causes acid deposition. This process will help with the atmosphere....

Atomic Layer Deposition

...Minireviews Electronic Materials M. Leskelä and M. Ritala Atomic Layer Deposition Chemistry: Recent Developments and Future Challenges** Markku Leskelä* and Mikko Ritala Keywords: atomic layer deposition · microelectronics · nitrides · oxides · thin films ew materials, namely high-k (high-permittivity) dielectrics to replace SiO2, Cu to replace Al, and barrier materials for Cu, are revolutionizing modern integrated circuits. These materials must be deposited as very thin films on structured surfaces. The self-limiting growth mechanism characteristic to atomic layer deposition (ALD) facilitates the control of film thickness at the atomic level and allows deposition on large and complex surfaces. These features make ALD a very promising technique for future integrated circuits. Recent ALD research has mainly focused on materials required in microelectronics. Chemistry, in particular the selection of suitable precursor combinations, is the key issue in ALD; many interesting results have been obtained by smart chemistry. ALD is also likely to find applications in other areas, such as magnetic recording heads, optics, demanding protective coatings, and micro-electromechanical systems, provided that cost-effective processes can be found for the materials required. N 1. Introduction Atomic layer deposition (ALD) has recently received much interest as a potential deposition method for advanced thin-film structures.

You Be the Judge

...trial, witness are brought forward to either help support or to discredit a case. A deposition is a form of testimony that is given orally, and occurs under oath. It can be recorded either by video camera or by a court reporter, prior to a trial. This is considered a way to preserve evidence if a person cannot attended the trial, usually if the person is sick or deceased. According to CEBlog, an advantage of deposition is that a “deposition is the only discovery method that permits you to obtain testimony, documents, electronically stored information, and other evidence from nonparties”(para3)”. Some other pros of deposition is that we can lock in testimony, get spontaneous responses, no question amount limit and may even promote a settlement, preventing the case from entering a jury phase at trial. Some disadvantages of deposition during litigation is it can become quite expensive, can reveal information to the opponent and can educate witness who are less prepared. Every aspect of law has its pros and cons, from the interpretation(s) of law, and testimony, deposition and the phases of trial. REFRENCES brook, julie.

Suzuki,Yoshio Sakk Nano Ceramics Center, Fine Particle Processing Group (WPI Center Initiative for Materials Nanoarchitechtronics), National Institute for Materials Science (NIMS), Tsukuba, Ibaraki 305-0047, Japan ABSTRACT It is an innovative method based on the application of a square-wave pulse potential of 50% duty cycle has shown to obtain dense bubble-free deposits of alumina by constant voltage electrophoretic deposition (EPD) in an aqueous suspension. Use of continuous dc voltage perpetually caused the integration of bubbles in the deposits. Bubbles in the deposit decreased gradually with decrease in the size of pulse width during the pulse potential EPD. A unique and narrow band of pulse width exists for each voltage within which a bubble-free deposit is obtained. The major benefits and appeal of EPD is its simple apparatus, little development time, little constraint in the shape of substrate, aptness for mass production, and no requirement for binder burnout as the green coating contains few or no organics. In comparison with other advanced ceramic processing techniques, the EPD process is very flexible because it can be altered easily for specific applications. In particular, despite being a wet process, EPD offers easy control of the thickness and......

Acid Rain

... Abstract Acid Rain is a mixture of wet deposition and dry deposition. Acid Rain is caused by a surplus of the chemicals sulfur dioxide and nitric oxide caused by air pollution. Air pollution comes from two main sources man made sources and natural sources. Man made sources come from combustion of coal used in power plants and exhaust pipes and natural sources come from volcanoes. They have many effects on the environment such as runoffs that lead chemicals into the streams and humans with respiratory illnesses that can worsen if the chemicals become too acidic.There are many ways to reduce acid rain such as cleaning exhaust pipes and using alternative energy sources. Acid rain measures a pH of about 5.3 Introduction: Acid rain is a mixture of dry and wet deposition from the atmosphere containing higher than normal amounts of nitric and sulfuric acids. The formation of acid rain result from both natural sources, such as volcanoes , and man-made sources, primarily emissions of sulfur dioxde and resulting from fossil fuel combustion. Acid rain occurs when these gases react in the atmosphere with water, oxygen, and other chemicals to form various acidic compounds. When sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides are released from power plants and other sources, the wind blows these compounds across the enviroment. There are two forms of deposition: wet deposition and dry deposition. Wet deposition refers to acidic rain, fog, and snow. If the......
