Kaligaran ng Pag-aaral (Introduksyon)
Masasabing malaki ang impluwensya ng internet partikular na ang social networking sites at online games sa mga estudyante. Ayon kay "Bob Ong," kilalang manunulat, malaki ang maitutulong ng makabagong teknolohiya upang mahasa ang kasanayan sa pagsusulat. Sa pamamagitan ng makabagong teknolohiya, mas lalong napapalawak ang kaaalaman ng isang tao at napapadali ang proseso sa isang gawain.
Ang kompyuter ay isa sa madalas gamitin ng mga tao ito ay nagsisilbing panimulang punto ng ‘’Information Revolution’’. Charles Babbage, isang British mathematician na nakaimbento ng kompyuter sa pamamagitan ng tulong nina Blaise Pascal, Otto Steiger, Konrad Zues at Howard Aiken. Sa ating henirasyon ngayon masasabing ang ‘’Computer Base’’ sa makabagong teknolohiya ang pinaka ginagamit ng mga industriya, paaralan, kompanya at mga establisimentong pang negosyo. Ang makabagong teknolohiya ay nagkakaroon ng magandang komunikasyon ang mga tao, tulad ng pag-gamit ng cellphone o kaya ng internet, na malalayo sa isa’t isa.Karamihan sa mga paaralan dito sa Pilipinas lalo na ang mga pribado ay gumagamit na ng mga kompyuter na may access sa internet. Mayroon silang tinatawag na ‘’computer laboratory’’ kung saan natitipon ang lahat ng mga kompyuter. Nang dahil dito, mas naging maginhawa at madali ang pagkalap ng mga impormasyon. Mas epektibong naibabahagi ng mga guro ang kanilang leksyon nang dahil sa internet.
‘’ Having an advanced system of technology is the greatest innovation in our time as technology makes life easier’’, isa lamang sa sinabi ni Margaux na aking nabasa sa internet na tumatak sa aking isipan. Hindi masama kung tayo ay gumagamit ng mga makabagong teknolihya ang masama ay paggamit nito sa hindi tama o pang aabuso nito nagiging sanhi na iba’t ibang epekto sa isang tao.

A Star Is Born

...A Star is Born Stars are quite possibly the oldest, molecule possessing organism in the vast universe that harbors all infinite existence. The oldest star discovered is an estimated 13.2 billion years old (Stetson). How stars have come to exist was once as unknown as what they are comprised of. To find out how this cosmic, infinite universe came into existence, astronomers must first bring everything down to a more basic, molecular, atomic level. A star’s life is started as a collapsing cloud of hydrogen; helium and some other elements are pulled inwards by its own gravity, forming a core. Through nuclear fusion, most of the hydrogen is converted into helium and this is what keeps the star constantly burning for billions and billions of years. A star’s internal pressure is what keeps it from collapsing under its own massive gravity. However, if a star becomes too massive, and the internal pressure can no longer support itself, the star will collapse, receding into a black hole. Until recently, astronomers had observed that there were young stars in the universe, but had never quite exactly understood how they entered into our realm of existence, until now. The Herschel space telescope was launched on May 14, 2009 and is the largest, post powerful infrared telescope in space, to our knowledge. In 2010, Herschel made two unrelated discoveries that were equally as astounding to astronomers. The first challenged our previous beliefs about star birth and the second provided a......

...By first glance at the title Stars, I assumed the story would have something to do with the author’s perception of the constellations during the night. By my growing knowledge of the Holocaust I then remembered the Star of David was very significant in determining Jews from non-Jews. It still baffles me to believe that this symbol, which is worn on chains by people of the Jewish faith today, could be used to discriminate one race from the other and aid in their humiliation and ultimately their death. During the reading, I was hearing the similar story of the suffering and measures taken by Jews while in the concentration camps. However, I discovered a different tone than most other stories. Even though Michael was frightened like the rest, he chose to act in order to save his cousin. His courage and quick thinking skills, which benefited Jews greatly during this period of persecution, not only saved himself but saved another by risking his life in exchange. A memory bubble came to me of the numerous times I stood standing in line at a bar without being of the legal age to drink alcohol. Most occasions I would hand the bouncer my authentic I.D. stating that I was underage and he would mark my hand with an “X” or something similar to show that I wasn’t allowed to drink while in the bar. Thinking on my feet, I learned that sometimes the “X” would come right off if I ran quickly to the bathroom to wash it off. Other times I would put Chap-Stick on the back of my......

Born or Not to Born in Dragon Years

...happen. According to several experts, this rage is likely to result in a gloomy picture, though. First of all, that people think children are born this year are lucky purely originates from the unfounded belief, without any empirical research. Second, as they grow up, ready to take the entrance exams and seeking for jobs, competition between babies of this year escalates ceaselessly. The higher unemployment rate on the horizon is imminent, let alone probably an increased crime rate and the shortage of housing. Perhaps, to people working in the real estate, this could be a positive signal, as a result of the fact that the demand for housing during that epoch is on the climb, pushing the price to the rocket and greatly benefiting them while their parents who dedicate their lives to buying houses for their dragon-year-born children are dissatisfied. Put in this context, little kids and then dragon adults are, instead of enjoying a life of a dragon as claimed, working laboriously to be able to find a lucrative job and then purchase a house. Others subscribe to the mindset that owing to the fact that dragons are unreal animals, kids are supposed to be impractical, living a life of everything in between, barely possible to adapt to the harsh realities and ending up in rags, unfortunately. Too, in case of numerous females or males being born in this year, the matter of marriage imbalance, again, crops up, driving their parents and themselves nuts. On the other side, optimists......

...in about 150 BC He ranked the stars he could see in terms of their brightness, with 1 representing the brightest down to 6 representing the faintest. Modern astronomy has extended this system to stars brighter than Hipparchus' 1st magnitude stars and ones much, much fainter than 6. As it turns out, the eye senses brightness logarithmically, so each increase in 5 magnitudes corresponds to a decrease in brightness by a factor 100. The absolute magnitude is the magnitude the stars would have if viewed from a distance of 10 parsecs or some 32.6 light years. Obviously, Deneb is intrinsically very bright to make this list from its greater distance. Rigel, of nearly the same absolute magnitude, but closer, stands even higher in the list. Note that most of these distances are really nearby, on a cosmic scale, and that they are generally uncertain by at least 20%. All stars are variable to some extent; those which are visibly variable are marked with a "v". What are apparent and absolute magnitudes? Apparent is how bright the appear to us in the sky. The scale is somewhat arbitrary, as explained above, but a magnitude difference of 5 has been set to exactly a factor of 100 in intensity. Absolute magnitudes are how bright a star would appear from some standard distance, arbitrarily set as 10 parsecs or about 32.6 light years. Stars can be as bright as absolute magnitude -8 and as faint as absolute magnitude +16 or fainter. There are thus (a very few) stars more than 100 times brighter......

...Famous Stars in our Galaxy There are about 300 billion different stars in our galaxy. All of which contain different history, characteristics and general information. They each contain their own story of how they came about. Many of these stars are a part of a certain constellation and have been around for billions of years. Polaris is one the best known stars. (“How Do Stars Form,” n.d.) This star is known by many names like the North or Pole Star. Polaris has not always been the North Star and will not always remain the North Star. As centuries change the North Star will also do so. “A famous star called Thuban, in the constellation Draco the Dragon, was the North Star when the Egyptians built the pyramids.” (earthsky) Polaris will remain as the North Star for many more centuries to come. There was a time where people depended on their lives on this star to guide them. Fortunately, they used the North Star and the Big Dipper without getting lost. “. When slavery existed in the United States, slaves counted on the Big Dipper (which they called the Drinking Gourd) to show them the North Star, lighting their way to the free states and Canada.” (earthsky) Polaris is not hard to miss in the sky; it is the 50th brightest star and does not disappear. The reason this star will not disappear is due to the fact that the Earth’s axis is aligned pointing towards Polaris in the same direction North faces but will eventually shift over time. In comparison to the sun, this star is......

There are three types of spectra used to evaluate light.   Objects which absorb light at different wavelengths are referred to as absorption spectrum. The intensity of light drops in objects which absorb light and therefore appear as dark lines on a rainbow of colors.   Objects such are stars, planets with......

...I was born the only child to two alcoholics. After my mother became pregnant with me, she quit drinking. However, my father did not. It may seem unfortunate to have an alcoholic as a father, but over the years I have realized that he plays a very significant part in my life. Typically, a dad should serve as a role model to his child. My father has inspired me to become the complete opposite of him. He is here to make me a better and stronger person. The August rain falling outside of my window reflected my mood precisely, gloomy like the gray sky painted with dark clouds, yet hopeful like the plants that longed for a taste of water. The morning of my fifteenth birthday had finally arrived. This was the day I had anticipated my whole life, my entrance to womanhood, but I knew it was not going to turn out as perfectly as I had hoped. My dad had to ruin one of the most special days of my life with his absence. "It's whatever," I thought and remained optimistic. My mother and I sat in my room and awaited my father's arrival. My father's disappearance was nothing new though, simply a reoccurring nightmare. It was now the evening of my fifteenth birthday and my father was still nowhere in sight. We did not know where he was or who he was with, all we knew was that he was lost and desperately needed to be found. My mother and I spent the entire evening of my birthday searching for my father. After hours of searching, my mother and I finally......

The President designated the following as members of the committee: 1. the accountant 2. the executive secretary 3. an employee in one of the operating units 4. an officer of the labor union 5. the internal auditor 6. a representative from the public During the first meeting, the seven members were all present. The president made a briefing regarding the purpose of the group, the circumstances that lead to the formation of the group, and his expectations about the group’s output. The group proceeded to determine the various factors relevant to the determination of the rates of the various jobs. Most of the members of the committee, however, cannot devote the time required to finish the job within the time frame indicated by the committee’s effectiveness. The first two meetings were held without much fuss. Everybody was given the opportunity to air his or her views about the various matters forwarded for discussion. For one reason or another, the accountant failed to appear in the succeeding meetings. He never attempted to explain his position to the committee leader or to any member, but his body language indicated that he was too busy doing more important concerns or the president and the board of directors. He tried to communicate with the...

Case 7 Hit and Miss Manufacturing: a Star Is Born

...LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL CREATED BY: KRISTYL MAE GEMOTA BSHRM 4C Life is Beautiful opens on a note of hilarity as the protagonist, Guido, and his best friend, Ferruccio, rocket down a country slope, the brakes on their rickety old car having given way. They pass through a parade, and the audience is immediately aware of where we are: the bystanders, believing Guido to be a Fascist leader, all raise their arms in the "Heil Hitler" sign. While Ferruccio attempts to fix the car, Guido happens upon a little farm, where the woman who is to become the love of his life literally falls from the sky into his arms. "Good morning, princess!" he cries, grinning widely. Guido and Ferruccio find lodgings with Guido's uncle, Eliseo, who recently has come under attack by Fascists. Eliseo also helps Guido to get a job as a waiter in a fancy hotel. Guido visits a moneylender in an effort to secure a loan to open up a bookshop, and he soon realizes that the disagreeable man, Amico, who refuses his loan is also the betrothed of the woman who fell into his arms, Dora. The following series of events demonstrates what a truly extraordinary character Guido is: he is uniquely capable of manipulating his surroundings so that events that are "coincidences" take on the aura of genuine magic. It is this ability that ultimately sways Dora: on one rainy night, Guido virtually steals her away from the insipid Amico and takes her on a journey through her imagination to a place where pillows can......

...In this paper I will explain how astronomers determine the composition, temperature, speed, and rotation rate of distant objects using various methods. I will explain the properties of stars. I will also summarize the complete lifecycle of the Sun and determine where the Sun is currently in its lifecycle.Light is a type of energy. Light behaves like a wave because it acts as a disturbance in the magnetic and electric field of space. Light can behave as a particle, because it sends all its energy to one place. A particle of light is called a photon. Photons can be absorbed into objects, bounce off objects, or fly through space. Scientists use the electromagnetic spectrum to organize and explain all types of electromagnetic energy that exist throughout the universe. Electromagnetic waves are organized in the electromagnetic spectrum according to their wavelength from the shortest, which are known as gamma rays to the longest which are known as radio waves. Electromagnetic energy is created by vibration. The vibration produces waves that carry energy. Each magnetic wave emits a different level of energy. These energies travel silently at the speed of light and produce a signature wave with a unique range of length, energy and frequency that scientists can identify and measure. One way that the energy of an electromagnetic wave is measured is by measuring its frequency. Frequency refers to the number of waves a vibration creates during a period of time. In general, the higher......
