Qualities Of A High Performing Team - 398 words
There are three main categories in building an effective, well performing team. The first and most important (in my opinion) is communication. The key to communication is good listening skills, respect for others ideas, sharing your ideas, and constructive criticism. Teams need to listen attentively and respectfully to other team members in order to achieve the highest level of performance. Teams also need to have respect for other team member's ideas, even if they think that the ideas have no meaning. But team members should always use constructive criticism to make the team better as a whole. Constructive criticism will help team members learn from other members of the team better ideas an ...

Should The Performing Arts Receive Equal Treatment With Sports - 1,478 words
Should the performing arts receive equal as sports? The performing arts have been proven to increase a childs mind. Yet sports keep the mind and body strong. This is a debate that has being going on for the past 20 years. On whether funding should be used to fund sports or the performing arts. People argue for both sides.

Performing A Full Golf Swing - 519 words
To begin executing the proper golf swing, your feet must be shoulder width apart.

(This is written for the right-handed golfer, all left-handers must reverse everything). Place the pinky of the right hand in between the index and middle fingers of your left.

Public Hangings - 1,364 words
Capital punishment seemed to have been regenerated from the beginning of mankind, where beheading was considered an honorable method of meeting death, whereas hanging carried with it a definite stigma. The era of public hanging was emotionally satisfying even though the surroundings was emotionally tense. In contrast to private hangings where they were fewer observers, less theatrical from the accuse and hanging was becoming more of an inhuman punishment to inflict on those found guilty of their crime. Both forms of hangings were though to be an effective way of preventing individuals from committing a crime. Capital punishment seemed morally acceptable, to the public and there were individu ...

... attern of systematic development also characterized American agriculture. In the year 1879, 74 percent of the American labor force worked on farms (Bolino, 34). The figure today is under 2 percent (Bolino, 34). There were some prosperous tobacco plantations in Virginia and Maryland, but most farmers and their families, which is to say most Americans, grew crops primarily for their own consumption. They had already started to barter with each other, and to buy and sell produce in significant quantities. So some specialization had begun. This shift in farming patterns was the real beginning of American capitalism on a broad scale, at least outside the major commercial cities of the eastern ...

Metabolic Muscular And Nervous Systems - 1,731 words
The immediate source of energy for muscular contraction is the high-energy phosphate compound called adenosine triphosphate (ATP). Although ATP is not the only energy-carrying molecule in the cell, it is the most important one, and without sufficient amounts of ATP most cells die quickly. The three main parts of an ATP molecule are: an adenine portion, a ribose portion, and three phosphates linked together. The formation of ATP occurs by combining adenosine diphosphate (ADP) and inorganic phosphate (Pi). This formation requires a large amount of energy to and it is called a high-energy bond. In order for a muscle to contract, the enzyme ATPase breaks the ATP bond and releases energy which is ...

The documentary I watched is about Thaipusam festival. I watched it on National Geographic Channel and was amazed to discover the meaning, the process and the traditions and practices of Thaipusam. It was interesting to watch the procession yet at the same time learn more about it in detail. Every January/February, depending upon the lunar month - on a full-moon day in the Tamil month of Thai, the Hindus will celebrate Thaipusam in honour of their Hindu God, Lord Subramaniam (sometimes referred to as Lord Murugan) who is a son of the Hindu God Shiva. He is believed to represent virtue, youth and power. As mentioned in the documentary, Thaipusam is celebrated in Singapore and also in Malaysia ...

Soon thereafter every other city also sprouted its musical organization. Philadelphia, Cincinatti, St. Louis, San Francisco, and other communities as they attained a modicum of wealth and leisure attracted German and French immigrants to perform in the orchestras. Further development of the American orchestra should be attributed to visiting tours of European great orchestras.

The age of Modernism is from 1863- 1963. In modernism the artist rejected the traditional forms of expression and created a knew one. this meant that they were no longer looking and using the long standing European ways though. The new work produced in that era was modern. This new way of thought included streamlined, neat and forward looking design. Another aspect of the modern way was that some artist made emotional and very expressive paintings where the brushstrokes were visible and had the same importance in the work as the subject or people would. This was unheard of wrong in the traditional school of thought. One final aspect of modernism was that at the moment the artist rejected the ...

Ben Franklins Religion - 1,879 words
Although in his Autobiography Benjamin Franklin claims that at a young age he "became a thorough Deist" (1359), Franklin saw God as much more than a blind watchmaker. Among his frequent references to practicality, reason, and the value of experimental science, Franklin's metaphysical beliefs  easily get lost, especially as he distances himself theologically from colonial Christian doctrines. It becomes convenient but incorrect to let Franklin's "virtue" stand apart from his religious beliefs. Franklin maintained a firm belief, however, in "a Being of infinite Wisdom, Goodness and Power" (165) , a God who by "providence"  acts frequently in the world, a power who could and would susp ...

Eminem - 943 words
For my research paper, I chose to write about Marshall Mathers. I chose to write about him because he is the best young rapper, and I like how he doesnt care what happens, he just goes with it. He isnt a very good role model, but he is funny, and couldnt care less what anybody says about him. He had a rough childhood that reflects to now, and makes great records and songs that describe his life and what has happened during it. Marshall Bruce Mathers III was born on October 17, 1974 in Kansas City, Missouri. He created his own nickname, Eminem, which is pronounced M&M, from his initials, M.M. Marshall had a harsh and cruel childhood, where he constantly moved between Kansas City and Metro Det ...

Lenny Bruce - 1,212 words
Lenny Bruce Leonard Alfred Schneider, or more commonly known as Lenny Bruce, was a comedian, a family man, drug addict, and philosopher. A conventional Jewish child from Long Island, who joked about homosexuality, drugs, religion, and race. Arguably, he paved the way for the comics of today, paying the price for being twenty years ahead of his time. Addicted to vulgarity and drugs he became a regular in courtrooms across America. The humiliation he caused a Philadelphia judge is thought to be another reason he spent so much time in court. His untimely death still stirs speculation of murder, rather than just another junkie that overdosed. Bruce was born on October 13, 1925 in Long Island, Ne ...

Sugars Symphony - 985 words
Some have coined music as a universal language. Perhaps, the complexity of the notes, the consistency of the beat, the array of instruments, or the flow of lyricism offers this universal appeal. Nevertheless, the unique composition of each song enables it to sustain its own magnetic aura, much like the musical implication in Lewis Nordans Music of the Swamp. Though, many argue Nordans piece suggests merely a collection of short stories rather than a novel, Nordan uses his singsong methodology- a novel-in-stories- to incorporate an anthology of his transformative memory- an autobiography of the way it was. By examining the structure of Music of the Swamp, it can be broken into a series of sho ...
