Is There Help? “Mr. and Mrs. Garcia, I am Officer Rodriguez, I am very sorry to have to be the one to tell you this, but there has been an accident. Your daughter was killed in a motor vehicle accident last night. As far as we can tell, there was alcohol involved”. Imagine getting a knock on your door at 2:00 in the morning, opening it up to find two police officers standing there. It is every parent’s worst nightmare. Unfortunately, this is exactly the news my parents received on January 24th, 2006. My 22 year old sister was killed by a drunk driver. To make the situation even harder to bear, he was 18, her friend, and had 3 prior DWIs. No one understood why my sister continued to befriend this kid. He was a ‘bad kid’, always in trouble, ‘no good’. These are the words people in the small community of Taos used to describe him.
“He has potential, nobody has given him a chance, if I can be a positive influence and make a difference in his life, then mine will be worth it” that’s how she’d explain it to everyone who asked. On the night she was killed, she went with him to try to convince him to go home. All of the witnesses and her autopsy proved she hadn’t been drinking. When he realized she was dead, he tried to pull her lifeless body into the driver’s seat and had intended to report that she had stolen his car. He couldn’t lift her body so he climbed over her and left her hanging half out of the car. He stole her purse and driver’s license. It took them hours to find her and the impact of the accident left her faceless. She was identified not through dental records, but by x-rays that were done one week before of her arm. She had broken it while snowboarding. He never spent a day in jail awaiting trial. During the court proceedings he yawned, said he was bored, and fell asleep. He spent only 18 months in…...

Rabbits Make Good Housepet

...enjoy. For many people, a rabbit is their best friend. Despite what dog lover may believe, a rabbit make excellent housepet. In the first place, people enjoy the sociality of rabbits. They like to play with toys and humans. The toys that they like to play with are balls, empty plastic bottles and toilet paper rolls. Even pieces of cardboard can act as great fun for rabbits. If your rabbit licks you, this is a sign of great affection which reveals that your rabbit trusts you and is not afraid to be around you. They also are great with everyone, even strangers. Easy to get someone to wahtch them too, if you have to go on vacation. In the second place, rabbits are civilized members of the household. Unlike dogs, rabbits do not bark or make other loud noises. They generally lead a quiet existence. they can be content just sleeping behind sofa. Rabbits also don't often have accidents beacuse they are smart. For example, rabbits be trained to use the litter box, and most rabbits will use it without fail or otherwise rabbit's droppings are very small and don't stink like dogs. Lastly, one of the most attractive features of rabbits as housepets is their ease of care. Rabbits don't have to be walked. They get plenty of exercise in the house as they play, and they do their business in the litter box. Rabbits also take care of their own grooming. Bathing a rabbit is almost never necessary because under ordinary circumstances rabbits clean themselves. Rabbits are more particular......

The Rabbit Hole

...In the story “The rabbit hole” the author Ann Beattie, challenge us to think about the conflict among family members when dealing with an aging parent with a serious illness. As a person ages In today’s society there is a role reverse between parent and child. Children are taking care of their parents and assuming all the responsibilities and decision making about their parents health care needs. The story raises a question about family relationships among family members, more specifically the relationship between a bother and his sister, when dealing with the decision concerning what is best for their mother. The author described the way both children had a different point of view on how to deal with their mother Illness. The daughter the primary care giver drove mother to all her appointment, took time off from work. Had to deal with the choice of giving up her life when she moved back home and let the love of her life go when she “ made the mistake of not marrying “ (pg 365) her boyfriend because she was having trouble balancing her love and personal life.

Rabbit and Wolves Lab

...“Rabbits and wolves” Introduction The computer simulation named “Rabbits and wolves” is about models and simple systems. In the simulation, there are three main organisms, rabbits, wolves and grass all put together in a forest ecosystem. An ecosystem is a set of organism within a defined area or volume that interact with one another and with their environment (Miller & Spoolman). A system is a collection of elements or components that are organized for a common purpose (Rouse, 2005). The purpose of this simulation is to see how these three organisms will interact with one another in the same environment. We will see how the populations of these organisms change by modifying parameters specific to each organism and how changing the start up parameter of an organism can affect the way the others grow. Objectives 1. To view and interact with a simple scientific computer model. 2. To determine how simple changes in populations of one organism will affect populations of organism in the same system. 3. To use a computer model to complete objective 2. Hypothesis Placing rabbits in a larger forest will not only allow them to grow better and have enough sustenance but also to avoid being eaten by wolves. Results The default parameters are the following: | Rabbit | Wolf | Maximum food capacity | 45 units | 200 units | Metabolism rate | 3 units/stage | 2 units/stage | Reproduction age | 10 stages | 10 stages | Probability of......

Rabbits and Wolves Lab

...“Rabbits and Wolves” Introduction I will be conducting a computer simulation called “Rabbits and Wolves”. In this experiment I will be interaction with a simple forest ecosystem model that will simply take into account three organisms: rabbits, wolves, and grass. As defined by “Environmental Science- 14th Edition”, an ecosystem is “a set of organisms within a defined area or volume that interact with one another and with their environment of nonliving matter and energy.” I will be using the computer simulation to alter the interactions of the organisms in the ecosystem to see what changes occur. Based on mathematical formulas and probability of certain events occurring, the model predicts the changes in the populations of the three organisms. I will be able to change different variables, such as the starting number of organisms, the reproduction rate, the food consumption rate, the growth rate, and more. I will be able to analyze the data I gain from this simulation to observe how changes in an ecosystem can alter the organisms that live in the ecosystem. Objectives 1. To view and interact with a simple scientific computer model. 2. To determine how simple changes in populations of one organism will effect populations of organisms in the same system. 3. To use a computer model to complete objective 2. Hypothesis I believe that allowing a greater number of rabbits in the beginning of the simulation will allow the rabbits to out-populate the wolves to a very......

To Run, or Not to Run

...To run, or not to run--that is the question: Whether 'tis easier to race And face the harsh pains of a race Or to stay lazy And, by not moving, avoid pain To run, to hit the adrenaline rush- No more – and by running to say I face The early morning preparations for the events That each race day holds ‘Tis a situation I do not wish to face To run, to race- To fall perhaps too hard. Ay there’s the problem, For in running what events may come about When we are hiding from the finish line Must make us stop and think. That’s the idea That makes disaster of running For who really wants to face the 7 a.m. sun The first start, The runners’ obnoxious cheeriness, The disappointment in Gatorade, The team’s early practices, The overly chipper song of the early bird, And the cold looks That other runners send in my direction When they too may run On weekends free from tribulations? What would heed the team’s early call To sprint and jog through the first hours of the day But that the horror of something may be missed while running That unknown events that have occurred which The gossips discuss While we stand in a confused daze Wishing we had chosen a different sport Instead of seeking those futile adrenaline rushes? Thus the chance of missing out does make runners of us all And thus the bliss of running Is tainted by eye opening thoughts of lost news And peaceful moments of calmness and scenery With this regard their paths are cut......

Rabbits

...Rabbits by Dorothy Nimmo 1. Summary: The story is about two sisters, who had been giving a nice china rabbit each by their uncle. They’re having a tea party in the garden and it is all very idyllic. But the oldest girl is very manipulating, and manipulates her little sister, to give her the rabbit her little sister had been giving. Then the older sister decides that she wants her own rabbit back, and she gets it her way. 2. Characterize the two sisters: Kate: Kate is described, from a small girl’s point of view, as a brave, intellectual, talkative, naughty and pretty girl. I will say, that Kate is about eight or nine years old. She is very aware of herself and very manipulative against her little sister Ellen. She is probably a bully, because she seems to enjoy nagging on Ellen. She calls Ellen fat, because she is eating redcurrants and threatens to tell their mother. Kate has a great power over Ellen, and is abusing it for her own amusement. Ellen: Ellen is two years younger than Kate. Six or seven years old, is my guess. She is very cautious, a fusspot if you may. She is described as a clumsy girl who always fall over her own feet, and is all covered up with plasters. She looks up to her big sister Kate, and sees her as an idol. Ellen is imitating her big sister, and does as Kate says. Kate asks Ellen, to go to the shed and get a brush, and Ellen just goes down the path to the shed, without protesting. 3. Comment on Kate’s way to manipulate: Kate knows......

Skim when he is starting robbery Then magical scene at the window, because he could not hear her voice in reality—but her voice gets through. They have a conversation. Will you help me? Can’t we just get out of here? You see the shit I’m in. Why didn’t you wait for me? I did. You got here too late. Then torch song by Dinah Washington as they escape the bank. No other sound!

Run Lola Run

...In the film Run Lola Run the flow of the movie relies heavily on how quickly the shots move from one thing to another. The editing in the first ten minutes alone conveys to the audience that this film will revolve around rushing around, going fast, and as the title suggests, running. The fast moving editing techniques are well used to express the importance of time and how it matters. The opening scene is an array of memories about what just happened mixed with the current time frame of what is happening. The arrangement of these shots and the pace at which they evolve helps set the audience in a mood of urgency and gloom. The montage sequence links the story Manni is telling Lola, showing it as a single, continuous episode. Each cut falls perfectly into line with the dialogue as it is spoken allowing the audience further insight to the story line. The editing done is very precise and builds to a climax that really pulled me in. The tempo increases and increases, building a heightened sense of desperation. Then suddenly Lola screams and the action comes to a screeching halt. A quick cut to a turtle crawling across the floor emphasizes just how slowed down everything just became. The sounds put each cut on another level of amazement. At the 5:08 mark a heavy bass, techno genre song starts to play quietly. Between cuts you start hearing a slight noise like something is rushing by your ear. The continuity of each of their voices as they go from their location to the others,...

Both of them Katy and Ellen has been given a china rabbi by their uncle. Kate who is elder by two years has gotten a blue rabbit; Ellen has gotten a brown one. Kate Manipulate her sister to give her the rabbit she had been giving. Then Katy wants her own rabbit back, and somehow gets it again. Settings The text “Rabbits” take place in a summerhouse orchard (frugthave), the story is not real but could be something happening in real life. In the text, the girls are not only in the summerhouse but also some other place ex. The shed. We do not hear about the social environment in the text. The text is describe detailed and we get a sort of an imagination of the place the two sisters are staying in. Their surroundings makes the story peaceful and idyllic. (Does it reveal anything about the characters’ feelings? Not answered yet). Characters In the story, there are two characters involved two sisters, Kate and Ellen. We know that Kate is two years older than her sister Ellen is. Kate is the dominating sister, who is able to manipulate Ellen. From Ellen’s point of view, Kate is described as a Clever, naughty, pretty, talkative, lovable and most importantly older then she is (Page 1 line 16-17).

Swamp Rabbit

...The Swamp Rabbit of Missouri LaShonda Howard University of Phoenix BIO/101 August 10, 2015 Linda Mottison (2015, February 6).  Swamp Rabbit of Missouri Introduction The (Sylvilagus aquaticus) or Swamp Rabbit, a native of Missouri, is by far the largest of the cottontail family. While they are the largest, they have the smallest ears of them all. The term “cottontail” is the defining character trait of the tail of the rabbit when raised that resembles a piece of fluffy cotton. Even though the swamp rabbit looks similar to other eastern cottontails, they are larger and darker in color – dark brown, rust and sometimes black. Once densely populating the southern United States frequently along the mighty Mississippi, Swamp rabbits are found abiding in lowlands, swamps, floodplains, and marshlands. The swamp rabbit is playing impactful roles in both the ecosystem and economic system. However, the extensive hunt of the species along with human development and expansion continues to erode the habitat and creates obstacles for survival (2013).  The decline, teetering on extinction in some places, will continue unless we push the habitat needs to the forefront. One such place in Missouri is the Mingo National Wildlife Refuge in southeast Missouri. Environment Description and Role of Organism Never more than two kilometers away from water, the very moist, humid, and often hot environment of the Swamp Rabbit is the wetlands. They prefer residing in areas such as......

Chassing the Rabbit

...Chassing the Rabbit Chappisha Morgan Book Critique “Chasing the Rabbit” May 31, 2012 This book “Chasing the Rabbit” by Steven Spear was a difficult read for me, I didn’t like that it didn’t flow easily like the “Hug your customer” book by Jack Mitchell. This is supposed to be a good read book, but I honestly wasn’t impressed. I don’t like all his focus on Toyota and other industries. I’m assuming the goal of this book was to show us different challenges that organization may face while they are all on the chase for the rabbit or money or success I should say. I get that the main focus of a company is to bring in revenue and to compete with other companies in their industry, but I don’t see why he need to focus so much of the book on Toyota’s success, I get that his little stories showed us something in the end but I do feel like it was too much at times. The books message is to show how much can be accomplished with less cost. Giving us the debate of weather an even trade off is how much we give up for something we really want which is taught in microeconomics. Life is all about the trade and what we have to lose in hope of a bigger gain or the better good. This much I can agree with. I think his chasing the rabbit metaphor is a good way to look at it because when you open a business we are competing with other companies and we all start at the same beginning but we get to the ending (which is the success level) differently. I like the......
