Running head: TECHNOLOGY ADVANCEMENTS

Technology Advancements Advancements in technology have help law enforcement become more modernized and in the process apprehend more suspects in criminal wrongdoings. There was a time when there was no such thing as convicting someone using DeoxyriboNucleic Acid in other words DNA. Nowadays with all the advancements in technology criminals are more easily apprehended. “Over the last decade, computer and telecommunications technologies have developed at an extraordinary rate. Increased computing power, advances in data transmission and attractive and user-friendly graphic interfaces present law enforcement agencies with unprecedented capacity to collect, store, analyze and share data with stakeholders inside and outside of government. Ultimately, information technology represents a tool to help local law enforcement achieve its broadened and increasingly complex mission. But whether this capability is fully realized, and at what pace, is not a foregone conclusion. Preliminary studies suggest that if its integration is not well managed, some aspects of information technology may meet with resistance among officers and other staff, particularly when such technology is perceived as unfairly intrusive or technically cumbersome. In addition, questions about privacy, security and cost need to be addressed. Because of the speed of advances in the field in recent years, independent studies on the impact of information technology on policing are only now getting under way. It seems particularly important, in this respect, to examine the experiences of some of the pioneers in information technology in the field of policing.” (University of Pennsylvania [UP], 2001) “Two areas in which information technology in policing has attracted a great deal of attention are crime mapping and information…...

Observation of Humming Birds

...Observation of Humming Birds Observation: When taking a hike, you notice that a ruby-throated hummingbird seems interested in your red hat. It hovers over the hat and then darts away. Question: Do ruby-throated hummingbirds prefer some colors more than others when visiting flowers? INTRODUCTION: There have been a number of researches and experiments done when it comes to ruby-throated hummingbirds. The ruby-throated hummingbirds are the only hummingbirds found in Northeast United States. They have great color vision, like many birds, and can see ultraviolent spectrum, unlike humans (1996, All About Birds). PREDICTION: Ruby-throated hummingbirds do prefer some colors other than others when visiting flowers. CONTROL EXPERIMENTAL METHOD: I will conduct a control experiment with 10 ruby-throated hummingbirds, using red, yellow, orange, and purple flowers. I will observe the Hummingbirds over a period of 5 weeks. I will then take pictures of the birds 10 times a day, to see which flower they prefer. RESULTS: In this experiment, I found that the ruby-throated hummingbirds prefer the red and orange flower over any other color. They flock to the red flower, by 1% over the orange. I feel that orange is a close color to red and if the hummingbirds does not get a chance to get to the red flowers, then they will flock to the next best thing. CONCLUSION: Based on this experiment, I accept this hypothesis. I do not feel that there is a need to......

Showdown

...there is no substitute for hard work. The moment our band, New Era, entered the St. Mary's Battle of the Bands competition we knew we would have to work hard from the very beginning if we wanted a chance to perform alongside some of the greatest school bands in the country. Donovan, my twin brother and lead guitarist, informed us that we will be auditioning in only 3 days time - we could not contain our excitement. We departed Southdowns immediately after the last school bell rang. We managed to fit 20 people into a 15 sweater mini van - yes that's right, South Africans in transit. The trip was surprisingly quiet, the only noise in the bus was the sound of my drum sticks rebounding off the seat In front of me and the humming of some of the band members, humming the audition song to themselves over and over again to ensure perfection. When we had finally arrived the band was full of energy, we could not contain our excitement! We stepped onto the stage, performed our hearts out and received a standing ovation from the audience - not bad if you ask me. The results of the qualifying bands would only be posted online in three days time, we were sure we had already qualified but as Mr. Sheldon would always say, "Stay humble guys - don't grow wings!". A few days passed, nothing. We were starting to get nervous, "Surely they would of posted them by now?" I thought to myself. I could not concentrate in class - my mind was set on leading my band to the top, to greatness, to......

Sound Motifs

...used to help tell the narrative of the story and give the audience cues to how the action or character is related to the sound. Music or sounds help the audience associate and connect certain scenes with their implicit meaning. Wilson’s love for his daughter joined with a regret over lost time that might have, or should have been spent with her, leaves him bound to investigate and avenge her untimely death. “Tell me about Jenny”, is Wilson’s quest to find out what happened to Jenny and his quest causes the narration and action in this film. Wilson’s memories (flashbacks) of Jenny are what keeps him driven in his search for answers. The reoccurring sound motifs in this film are wind chimes, the sounds of the ocean (waves), Wilson’s humming and a unique melody of piano music. These reoccurring sound motifs aid the audience’s understanding of the film’s non chronological temporal order of the story. The film uses different sounds during flashbacks to help add or reveal new information to the viewer about Wilson’s past and the film’s scenes that occur out of the story’s chronological order. The flashbacks are used to create suspense and intrigue in the narration by gradually revealing the entire events of the story. The piano music motif is associated with Wilson’s quest for the truth about Jenny’s death. The piano music is used for different purposes throughout the film. One use of the piano music is to cue the audience that important information is being revealed......

Tpo 03 Listening

...use the humming birds as an example. Now you know a humming bird is amazingly small, but even though it's really tiny, it migrates over very long distances, travels up and down the western hemisphere – the Americas, back and forth between where it breeds in the summer and the warmer climates where it's spent the winter. So you would say that this whole area over which it migrates is its habitat because on this long-distance journey,it needs to come down to feed and sleep every so often, right? Well, the humming bird beats its wings – get this – about 3 thousand times per minute. So you think, wow, it must need a lot of energy, a lot of food, right? Well, it does. It drinks a lot of nectar from flowers and feeds on some insects, but it's energy-efficient too. You can't say it isn't. I mean, as it flies all the way across the Mexico Gulf, it uses up none of its body fat. But that doesn't mean it doesn't need to eat. So humming birds have to rely on plants in their natural habitat. And it goes without saying, but the opposite is true as well, plants depend on humming birds too. There are some flowers that can only be pollinated by the humming birds. Without its stopping to feed and spread pollen from flower to flower, these plants would cease to exist. But the problem, well, as natural habitat along these migration routes is developed by humans for housing or agriculture or cleared for raising cattle,for instance, there is less food available for migrating humming......

The Cotton Field

...The Cotton Field Tamia Denise 8B This composition will be about the daily life of a slave. From the time they wake up to the time they go to the field. The piece should last about two to three minutes long. The beats that are going to be included are clapping, stomping and humming and the beats on the cabin. The repetition will be in the beats listed above. Other viewpoints include duration and kinesthetic response. The actions will be the stomping in a single filed line and bending to reach down and get the cotton to then place it into their sacks. There will be no dialogue. This composition will require 24 people. Everything should be pretty much in unison and the mood is a sad one. Before the sun rises, all the overseers on the plantation go to each of the four cabins (there are five people in each) and in unison bang on the side of the cabin. The slaves then all get in a single file line, reach down with their left hand to put their sack onto their right side, and in unison step forward twice and then turn to the left. The line leader will then start with his left foot to begin their march. When he stomps everyone in the line follows to stomp with his or her right foot. Everyone will continue to do this in a straight line until they reach the cotton fields. From this line five people will march into each row. Before this happens, the line leader from the beginning will start a hum, and everyone else will repeat him. They continue this hum and begin to step and......

Cinematic Innovations in a Bout de Soufflé

...editing were broken—establishing shots are often omitted and the famous ‘jump cut’ was born. When Michel is humming while driving in the beginning of the film, when Michel and Patricia are talking to each other in the car, and when Van is telling a story with his girlfriend to Patricia in a café, there are time and spatial leaps, which leave uneven connection between shots. The pace of film becomes literally breathless compared to long shots. Some parts are removed from the middle of sequences because Godard wanted to shorten the first edited version of the film. Such rapid skipping makes the shots seem not worthwhile or meaningful to ponder upon. Indeed, Michel’s humming is pointless, Van’s story is ridiculous, and conversation between Michel and Patricia also doesn’t make sense. All of them are saying something but communication is not established. The fragmented form visually externalizes pointlessness and unstableness of its content. Also, as such obvious discontinuity is impossible in reality, it strongly interrupts the audience’s projecting themselves into the film. Sound is another remarkable part. The whole film was made without sound. Sound was recorded and edited separately. It has autonomy against image. Michel’s voice is in fact Godard’s, not Belmondo’s. Michel’s narration at the very beginning of the film is like the destiny’s word echoing in the air. Michel’s humming while driving on the Route nationale 7 is relatively more continuous than corresponding jump......

Mr No Face

...anthem. As he walked and passed anyone, he would just put his head down and keep humming. Never did he mess with anyone, but the neighborhood kids were so cruel to him. They would scream No face is coming, No face is coming, and gathers behind him imitating his walk. Most of the time he would ignore them, but every now and then he would stop, turnaround, lift up his hairy face and growl at the kids, rrrrrrrrrrr. And they would all start running. And if you were brave enough to look back, you could see him smile for a brief second. One day while Mr. No face was sitting on the park bench a little freckle face boy walk up to him as he sat humming the national Anthem. Mr., what is your name, the little boy said. But Mr. No face did not answer he just started humming louder. The little boy, out of curiosity, then said, why do you keep humming the same old Nation Anthem. But Mr. No face just got just louder and louder. But to Mr. No faces surprise, the little boy did not leave; he actually started singing the National Anthem as Mr. No Face hummed. The two were so loud that people started gathering to here them hum and sing. The little freckly face boy had a beautiful voice and Mr. No faces deep humming could sooth the soul. No time at all people started to give them money and clapping. The two sing from morning until noon, and at 12:30 on the dot, Mr. No Face stopped humming and the little freckle face boy singing. The crowd that had gathered went away leaving......

Differential Gear

...noise. Other functions of differential gear: Apart from allowing the wheels to rotate at different Rpm differential has two more function. First is Speed reduction: This is achieved by using ring gear which having at most 4-5 times number of teeth as a pinion gear.Such huge ratio will bring down the speed of the ring gear. Such huge gear ratio will bring down the speed of the ring gear. Science the power flow at the pinion and ring gear are the same, such a speed reduction will result in a high torque multiplication. The other function of the differential is to turn the power direction by 90 degree. Differential problems: Bearings: (humming sound gets louder with higher speeds) Solutions: * Lift the vehicle on the hoist. * Put it in gear and spin the wheels at approx. 50 Km/hr. * Use a stethoscope to listen for a humming sound by the carrier bearings and the pinion bearings. Ring and Pinion problems: * If backlash between ring gear and pinion gear is too great, a clunking sound can be produced, especially when an automatic transmission is shifted into gear. * Lack of service or low fluid can cause this problem. * Will show up as whining or howling noise that changes when going from acceleration to deceleration. Also there is a situation where one wheel of the vehicle is on the surface with good traction and other wheel in the slippery track. In this case a standard differential will send the majority to the slippery wheel....

Wind Turbines

...can get headaches, night terrors or learning disabilities in children, having sleep issues, mood swings, tinnitus, along with concentration, memory, balance, dizziness and nausea issues also. Doctors are not sure if this is a real issue just yet. It's understood that some people who live in close proximity to wind turbines experience sleep disturbances, headaches and concentration problems. These symptoms and others could be explained as the effects of infrasound as well as constant humming and vibrations. But here's the catch: Many of the symptoms of wind-turbine syndrome can also be caused by chronic sleep loss -- simply and unfortunately an effect of living near a noise-producing entity [source: Ohio Department of Health]. People who live near a highway or busy street may have trouble sleeping, which can lead to other health problems like irritability, anxiety, concentration and dizziness. (Frey & Kollman, 2008) Overall, if a person has the money, space and neighbors that do not mind the humming sound that a wind turbine makes then they should go for buying one. It is not every day that people can save money on their electric bill by using air that is blowing around. Taking the pros and cons listed here-in to try and use what we already have should not be hard to achieve. A person does not even have to get a large wind mill; they could have a few little ones in the backyard, just enough to make sure that it is worthwhile in the long run. Reference Frey, R. C.,......

Society - Jerry Hannan

...Supertramp) journey through his rediscovered life. The song focuses on materialism shaping your identity. The songs theme is strengthen by the fact that the song only is performed by Eddie Vedders humming voice and the strumming guitar. The ebb and flow of Vedder’s voice, paired with the decrescendos and crescendos of the wave-like guitar, reflected the tug of the wild on Alex’s life. The strumming guitar is similar to the cadenced pounding of the ocean, with its tides and undertows; its wild, mysterious grandeur. Chris flees society to find a peaceful place were he's not judged by his belongings, but by his personality. I think he was frustrated by the problems of the world and the greed of humans, as Eddie Vedder murmurs in the opening lines of Society, with the beautiful play on words, “we have agreed, with which we have a greed.” All humans have an instinctive greed, the desire for more; this is universal. How we control and channel this greed shapes our principles. The song has an interesting form. Building up through the verses leading to the catchy chorus. The verses all has four lines, but the chorus starts with two lines leading to four lines ending up with eight lines in the last chorus. As you'll notice the chorus is the only place in the song where's backing vocal humming society. I think it's represent some of Chris's thought at the end of the movie where he writes his last dairy entry. Happiness only real when shared. I think the lyrics and chugging......
