College, the next step in your life. What I know about college already is it is expensive, books must be bought through your own money, and it is better to take college classes in high school. Most of things I have learnt through school and my brother because he attends WKU and tells me a lot about college and how expensive it is.

First, college is extremely expensive, not only because you have to pay to get in but you have to buy your own books and tuition is charged by how many hours you have of classes. Sometimes for some students it is cheaper than others and in other cases it is more expensive. Using the college dorms is expensive too, my brother had to pay six hundred dollars or so to live in a dorm. On average most books for college are one hundred to even five hundred dollars maybe even more and you buy more than a couple books. So just living in a dorm and buying your books could total to a thousand dollars.

Next, books this is probably cost you more than you think. My friend that goes to UK pays around three hundred dollars for his books and that is for engineering classes. Imagine regular classes like chemistry and trigonometry. Worst part is you have to pay for books with your own money, yes you can get a loan but you still have to pay it back. My brother spent one hundred and thirty five dollars on a book he only used once and he could not pass the class without that book.

Lastly, you better try and take college classes in high school than college, for example math 150 in college is around five hundred dollars or so while math 150 in high schools is

around one hundred dollars. That means you can save around four hundred dollars by doing something one year earlier. I learnt this when my math teacher told me that it is better to take math 150 now than later. Trust me you are going to need that four hundred dollars for your classes you take in…...

What I Know Now

...Truly Not a Dummy If William Ellsworth Hoy were playing today, he would not be called "Dummy"--not by players nor by fans nor by the media. He'd be "Bill" or "Billy," perhaps "Will" or "Willie," maybe even "Ellie." He wouldn't be a deaf mute, either. He'd be "aurally and vocally challenged." But back when Hoy was playing, nicknames were descriptive, often to the point of cruelty. To Hoy, his condition wasn't an excuse; it was what it was. Indeed, he referred to himself as "Dummy" and politely corrected those who, for whatever reason, called him "William." Hoy would have been an exceptional man with or without his handicap. After his baseball career was over, he used his celebrity status to foster the needs and concerns of the deaf. He had a zest for life and once walked 72 blocks at the age of 80 to see his son, Judge Carson Hoy preside in court. At that advanced age he also danced the Charleston and pruned trees on his farm. William Ellsworth Hoy was born in Houcktown, Ohio, on May 23, 1862. His parents, Rebecca Hoffman and Jacob Hoy, were of English-German and Scottish stock and had a farm in Houcktown. William had three brothers, Smith, Frank, and John, as well as sister Ora. Contracting meningitis when he was three years old left William deaf and mute. Hoy entered the Ohio School for the Deaf in 1872, graduating in 1879. Highly intelligent and hardworking, he was valedictorian of his high school class. In those days many deaf people were either employed or......

...I don’t have a paper yet he Blackwater fire was caused by a lightning strike on August 18, 1937, in Shoshone National Forest, about 35 miles (56 km) west of Cody, Wyoming, United States. Fifteen firefighters were killed by the forest fire when a dry weather front caused the winds to suddenly increase and change direction. The fire quickly spread into dense forest, trapping some of the firefighters in a firestorm. Nine died during the fire and six died afterwards from severe burns and respiratory complications; 38 others were injured. More U.S. wildland firefighters died in the Blackwater fire than in any incident since the Great Fire of 1910; the death-toll was not surpassed until 2013 when 19 firefighters died in the Yarnell Hill Fire. Firefighters in the first half of the 20th century used mostly hand tools to suppress wildfires, and all gear was carried by the firefighters or by pack animals. Weather forecasting and radio communication were generally poor or nonexistent. After the Blackwater fire, better ways to respond to such fires were developed, including the smokejumper program in 1939 and the Ten Standard Firefighting Orders (a standardized set of wildland firefighting principles) in 1957. n 1937, firefighters did not have portable radios for rapid on-scene communication or helicopters to bring supplies and provide water drops.[8][9][a] Firefighters had some access to gas-powered portable water pumps (two were set up on the Blackwater fire), but most used backpack......

What Do You Know About the Cold War?

...anything is going on. This is what was going on in the beginning of the Cold War just two years after WW2, 1947. Though what do people living during 1960 or even the children of the baby boomers know about the Cold War? I believe that the American Perception of the Cold War is very different from what was going on. The first person I interviewed was my father in law Dan Faris. Dan said “ To know about the Cold War all you have to know about is the Iron Curtain cause they could be synonymous. This is very true the Iron Curtain is defined by the Eastern and Western separation of Europe by Communism. This is what started the Cold War. During the European Financial Collapse people would kling to whatever promises people could make them to get them out of their poverty. Stalin came in and promised a better tomorrow and communism spread. The United States saw this as a threat and they wanted to stop Communism therefore Truman employed Marshall and henceforth Marshall aid was offered to the people in those European countries. Which in turn threatened Stalin. Dan said that this all started in 1957 which is actually not true though since he was born in 1955 may have been what he perceived. All of this actually started in 1945. During these games that the Russians and U.S. was playing with each other soon it turned ugly when bombs were placed in Cuba which was called the Cuban Missile Crisis. Dan’s perception said” I know a lot about this subject and I know it had to do with the......

What We Know About Wheat and How It Affects

...still inconclusive we know there is something in the wheat plant that is making many of us sick. This research paper was created to examine how gluten and the wheat grain are affecting humans, the potential causes of the sudden manifestation of gluten related disorders, and what, if anything, can be done to prevent gluten related ailments. By way of background, gluten is the main structural protein found in wheat and other grains such as rye, barley, and oats. Wheat is the most commonly consumed gluten containing grain as it makes up approximately seventy-five percent (75%) of all calories consumed from carbohydrates in the American diet. The gluten proteins found in wheat is what gives dough its elasticity and the ability to rise when combined with yeast. Traditional breads, baked goods, pasta and pizza crust would have never been invented without gluten. It is used to thicken soups, sauces and gravies. Gluten is also used as a valuable binding agent in processed food manufacturing. The more gluten used in baking the more desirable the characteristics of that food become: fluffy, chewy and springy. Could this be the reason that the amount of gluten contained in wheat has been increasing year over year? (Davis MD, 2011) Gluten is used and is perhaps essential in creating many delicious foods. Unfortunately, gluten related illnesses are becoming more common and the only known treatment is to avoid the gluten containing foods altogether. Currently, experts know of at least......

...system with minimal details about the various parts. To add these details, design iterations are then included to complete the design. Next up we have a variation of these languages such as: o Procedural Programming Languages Procedural Programming involves a list of operations the program needs to complete to be able to attain the preferred state. It is a simple programming paradigm where every program comes with a starting phase, a list of tasks and operations, and an ending stage. Also called imperative programming, this approach comes with small sections of code that perform certain functions. These sections are made up of procedures, subroutines, or methods. A procedure is made up of a list of computations that should be done. Procedural programming lets a part of the code to be used again without the need to make several copies. It achieves this by dividing programmatic tasks into small sections. Because of this, programmers are also capable of maintaining and understanding program structure. Among the known procedural languages are BASIC and FORTRAN. These are the different types of computer programming languages that you can consider when planning to make a computer program. Procedural programming splits the program's source code into smaller fragments. Structured languages require more constraints in the flow and organization of programs. And object-oriented programs arrange codes and data structures into objects. To learn more about computer programming,......

What We Know About the Development of Intercultural Maturity

...What We Know About the Development of Intercultural Maturity Student’s Name Institution What We Know About the Development of Intercultural Maturity Cultural diversity is the opposite of monoculture. It only refers to diverse culture or quality of various (Banks, 1997). Cultural diversity also means respect between different cultures that exist. It sometimes implies the existence of a variety of cultures like what we have in the world today, whereby particular culture occupy a particular region in the world (Banks, 1998). Globalization has been said to have had adverse effects on diversity in the world today (Banks, 1997). Culture influences how society members share experiences, heir values, fears, worries and hopes, culture moulds the perception and understanding of a community about the world. Culture enhances equitability and justice in the society (Banks, 1997). My goal in this paper is to discuss cultural diversity and particularly what we know about the development of intercultural maturity (Banks, 1998). Students from diverse social class, regions, ethnic and racial groups always perform and achieve differently in the schools (Banks, 1997). This act leads us to the need for equality in the education system; this will in turn close of the diversity gap. Intercultural Maturity is developed by formulation and implementation of multicultural education policies that will abolish culturally based education systems. Culturally biased education systems...

What I Learned About Leatership

...What I Learned About Leadership Introduction Before taking this course, I was under the assumption that people were either born leaders or they weren’t. Through learning from authors like Robert Quinn, James Hunter, and many others, I have realized that developing into a leader is a process that anyone can submit themselves to, regardless of background. Looking at the examples of Jesus and other famous leaders has helped me realize what this process of becoming a leader looks like. As I said before, people are not born as “leaders” or “not leaders”, but rather I have learned that most all of us exist in the normal state of leadership for most of our lives. As we grow and mature our goal as Christians is to transcend into the fundamental state of leadership in hopes of imitating Jesus. In this reflection I will seek to define these terms, explain how Christ led and leads, provide applications for the why it is important for us to do the same, and lastly I will address how this course has impacted the scope of my future years at Hope and beyond. Transcending the Normal State In order to transcend into the fundamental state of leadership we must first come to grips with where we spend most of our time: the normal state. In the normal state, we are comfort-centered, externally directed, self-focused, and externally closed. In essence, being in the normal state means resisting change for selfish reasons. From a Christ-centered point of view, we can see that as a result of the...

What I Used to Think About Art and Artists

...Part One – What I Used to Think About Art and Artists When I started taking this class this semester I wasn’t really sure exactly what to expect or which artists we were going to study. When I started this course I used to think that artists, as in painters, were all somewhat strange quiet people with few social skills. From my previous experience most of the people that I knew or knew about were a bit on the strange side. I knew a lot of unknown artists when I was younger and I still know some unknown artists now, it’s just that most of the ones that I know fit that particular stereotype. Rather messy in appearance and kind of closed off from most of society. I used to think that most artists behaved in a somewhat wild manner with wacky thoughts. Being an artist myself, pretty much everyone I knew in my high school art classes were all pretty strange, we were always causing a ruckus. I used to think when artists did art it just kind of happened. I guess I felt like it just came naturally to artists and the magic kind of just happened all on its own, like that it didn’t take a lot of effort to do it. I think that when I was in high school and taking a lot of art classes I just don’t remember thinking to much about what I had to do, I’m sure I probably did, I just don’t remember consciously think about it. I never really thought about what sources there would be for artists other than love, drugs, and alcohol. I guess that it what used to first pop into my......

What I Know

...life skill, but the fact is I obviously don’t and neither does anybody else. I’m here to write about what I do know, such as what I do at work, know when to shut my mouth, historical events, and etcetera. I’m not big on psychology in a broad range, but I do enjoy abnormal psychology and learning about anti-social behavioral people that make-up society. I started working at an airport after I graduated high school back in May of 2015. My job seems pretty simple in what I am told to do, but the work is a pain in the ass. I clean planes for a bunch of rich bastards that do nothing it seems except fly planes and go to swinger clubs. I also mow the airport mainly in the summer and not so much in the winter. Mowing is my favorite part because I can go do my own thing and not listen to dumbass Bill (who just got fired recently, Thank God) rant about how Fox News is what kids need to watch to learn something. I’m not a liberal, but I hate Fox News by the way. All Fox News does is rant about something non-stop and repeat the same thing over and over. Well anyways, the job pays the bills and that is what matters. School is very important as you may know, but at the same time homework sucks. My favorite area of learning is about history. Partly due to the fact I can easily memorize historical events. Another area of what I know but strongly dislike is math. Math is one of those things that I’m good at and hate, but do it anyway because I know how. I know that abnormal psychology......

...1. What are the common sub-mindsets (e.g., creativity, initiative, vision) that you think Steve Jobs had based on the entrepreneurial mindset framework we discussed in class? There were a lot of sub-mindsets that helped Steve Jobs become a very successful entrepreneur of our generation and I think we can learn a lot from him. One of the most important sub-mindset of his is his imagination/creativity. His Apple products have revolutionized the way in which technology is heading since their initial release of the first apple computer in 1976. His astounding capability to develop and design such technological products amazes me till this day, since my first iPhone (the 3gs) I had never switched from Apple to any other phone manufacturing company – same as my MacBook. He also had a strong vision, passionate and fearless when it came to expanding Apple. A lot of his decisions were questionable and at time risked his company but only because he really believed in it. He was able to push his business and peers to the limits without going overboard with it. 2. What did you like and learn from this video? I believe that there were a couple of lessons we could learn from Steve Jobs’ commencement speech at Stanford. The first thing I learnt from his speech is that he followed and believed in his heart, after attending college for a few months he decided to drop out of all of the courses that was required for his degree and enrolled in the ones that truly interests him – one...

Surely, Apple Inc. has seen its share of sunny days in abundance. Now, many investors believe dark clouds are circling and the rain will soon come. On the other hand, some financial analyst suggest a new phase is in the making and Apple’s best days are ahead. Although Apple closed out in the negative for the first time since 2008, the opportunities ahead outnumber the unavoidable threats that will arise. Notably, Apple has the opportunity to surpass its previous accomplishments. Undoubtedly, the tech behemoth has all of the components necessary to become a major global actor within the international community. This station stands far above holding the title of world’s greatest brand and largest company. Apple Inc. has the tools and the leadership to provide solutions for serious problems by forging partnerships with other Multi-Nationals (MNCs), Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) and even Nation States.

...Dorothy Robinson Culture and Society May 13, 2012 Wendell Johnson The social situation that I would like to address in this essay is the problem of crime in our society. We all know that crime is on the rise, most likely due to inequalities in race, education, social class, skills, financial status, and religious beliefs and values. Of course, both functionalists and conflict theorists are marco-level, but have differing views on the reasons for, and reactions to, crime in our society today. Interactionist on the other had is micro-level, meaning it is not that useful to the world. Functionalists believe that crime is important for a society. Crime shows other member of the society what is right and wrong. Social agreement decides how right and wrong is determined. Crime can lead to social change, say functionalists, because the existence of crime proves to the people in the society that the government does not overly control the citizens. Crime can also help the economy of a society by creating jobs for law enforcement officers, psychiatrists, and probation officers. However, even in a functionalist society, too much crime can be bad for the group, causing it to lose the standard harmony and ultimately causing the society to failure. Also it is suggested that the existence of crime is functional in its ability to gather families and communities together for a common purpose. Conflict theorists feel that crime is products of a struggle for power and control.......
