Recreation Of The Eiffel Tower In California - 1,179 words
Some may ask, Why should the Eiffel Tower be recreated in California? A good answer for this is why not? The Eiffel Tower is the one monument that can easily be identified internationally without the usage of words, only a picture of itself. Its beauty attracts around six million visitors each year; however, many Americans are unable to visit due to the fact that it is so far away. If it were recreated in California many more Americans would be able to visit and have the experience of visiting and learning about the towers, its creator, Gustave Eiffel, and Frances history, but would also aid in helping scientists to continue to learn more about aerodynamics, meteorology, and radiotelegraphy ...

Recreation Of The Eiffel Tower In California - 1,088 words
... iles supporting the bridge had to be sunk in eighty feet of rushing water. Working sixteen hours a day trying to sink the piles with excavation, Eiffel realized that a new method had to be designed. He carefully plotted each detail and devised a way to sink the piles without excavation which saved weeks of precious labor. The bridge was completed ahead of time due to Eiffels pure genius. Gustave Eiffel had plans other than to just design the tower for the entry to the Paris Exposition of 1889. Angered at Bismarcks cruelty to Paris in the spring of 1871 by cutting its people off from the world, Eiffel vowed that this type of incident would never reoccur. Eiffel claimed that if France shou ...

Paris The Virulent Trip - 1,636 words
It was a cold clammy morning, and as I awoke I could not help but wonder what the day had in store for me. It was not just any ole day, but it was my first New Years Eve in Germany. I had just got back from a six-month peace keeping mission in Bosnia, as did the rest of my unit and had a lot of money to travel with. I had plans to go to Amsterdam earlier in the week, but decided not to since the unit next to mine was just raided for drugs. Although, I have never done drugs I knew this would put a spotlight on me, and so I decided it would not be a good idea. Suddenly I heard a loud knock at my door. I jumped out of bed as if I were on fire, and ran to the door. Who could it be I wondered, is ...

Europe - 4,478 words
I spent my second night in a youth hostel in Paris last night. I arrived in Paris around 6:00am local time two days ago. The flight from LAX to Orly airport was ten about hours long. It wasn't so bad, though. There was nobody sitting next to me and a nice, elderly French lady two seats away. The charter flight that I flew on was run by a French airline, and it seemed that the majority of the passengers were French-speaking. When we were taking off from LA, all of the announcements were in both French and English, but the frequency of the English announcements seemed to decline as we got farther and farther away from the United States. Customs was amazingly simple. I breezed right though, and ...

Poems For The Eye - 1,801 words
Poems for the Eye Are Not Merely for the Sake of Eye What is poetry? Pressed for an answer, Robert Frost made a classic reply: "Poetry is the kind of thing poets write." In all likelihood, Frost was not trying merely to evade the question but to chide his questioner into thinking for himself. A trouble with definitions is that they may stop thought. The nature of poetry eludes simple definitions. Definitions will be of little help at first, if we are to know poetry and respond to it. We have to go to it willing to see and hear. To a particular poem, thousands of readers will have thousands of understandings. A poem can please us in many aspects. We usually concentrate our attention on its so ...

Conquering Of Fear - 1,138 words
For as long as I could remember I have had a chronic fear of crashes at high speeds and that my best friend Joseph has never feared anything. He would jump off the Eiffel Tower if he got the chance. On the day that I would finally conquer my fear I was in the back seat of Josephs uncles Ford Expedition with the whole seat to myself. If I were to turn my head around I would see the large speeder boat the car was pulling behind it. We were on our way to the Delta Marina. Our plan was to go tubing in the water. The only way we would end our turn on the tube was by flipping over and crashing into the water. The road began to get rocky and the smell of wet wood was in the air. We finally reached ...

Disney's Attempt At Foreign Corporate Expansion - 1,550 words
... ney Company had to abide by the laws of France. An issue which the French were against was the installation of sprinklers in the hotels (McIntyre, 1990b). Such an installation is not mandated by French law. The French believe the sprinklers are not necessary since "...their hotels are built with superior construction, building materials and compartmentalization, and are equipped with smoke alarms that would quickly summon firefighters" (McIntyre, 1990b, p. 143). 2 Thus, since Euro Disneyland was a French Company, the French did not believe they needed to install sprinklers. The Walt Disney Company believed in such sprinkler installation and embarked on an education program to explain why ...

Radio: The Past And The Present - 878 words
In the early days, about a century ago, there was few ways of mass communication. The only real source of mass communication was print. Every town or city had a local newspaper where all the information was released to everyone. But then there was a new invention, radio. Radio was an extremely influential part of everyday life, and still is in the 21st century. Most people credit the invention of radio to a man named Guglielmo Marconi. Although there were many people that contributed to the invention, he was the first man to actually find out how to broadcast sound waves and succeed. In 1902, Marconi held a lecture for the Society of Arts, which is where he discussed his technique that he ca ...

Historical Significance Of Grand Central Station - 1,469 words
When the words railroad station, are mentioned, the first thing that appears in most peoples minds is Grand Central Terminal in New York City. It has become known as the crossroads of the world.
