Bonded takes us back to the time of slavery. The play itself is set in 1820, Virginia. The protagonists of this play are Sonny (Terrence Colby Clemons), Lily (Toyin Moses), Jack (Carl Crudup), and Asa (Eric B. Anthony). This play does not seem to have an antagonist, the antagonist exist in another form. Slavery is in a sense, an antagonist along with the element of homosexuality. The protagonists aims to just live life off before Asa came along. The conflict starts when Asa was purchased as a slave, through numerous twist and turns including Jack lusts for Lily whom only likes Sonny, and Asa being a rebellious which caused trouble for Sonny, the play was able to develop into something far more different than expected. We, as audiences were able to see the build up of tensions and suspense that would spring up during this short play. Bonded by Donald Jolly had a very clear message in this short play. The playwright wanted us to see the taboo of homosexuality during the old slavery days. From today you can relate that homosexuality is not quite as accepted even though we are more open minded than in the 1820s. We can assume that homosexuality was even more criticized and hated than today. At least homosexuality is more tolerated than today, so I can't really imagine what it would be like for homosexuals in the past. Sonny and Asa portrays that quarrel and hatreds can into mutual attraction which shows the hidden message that homosexuality shouldn't be despised as long as there is no harm to anyone else, people should be free to express their feelings which is ironic in a way because Jolly used slaves to portray this free feeling when slaves are anything but free. In a way this also relates to life because there will always be a sort of triangle relationship, someone will always be left out because there is no room for their love. It shows the fears and helplessness…...

Fusion Bonded Epoxy Coating

...Fusion Bonded Epoxy Coating Engineers and Researchers have found that fusion bonded epoxy coating is the practical and scientific way for protecting steel reinforcement against corrosion Applying an epoxy coating to steel rebar prevents the chlorides from reaching the steel surface. And since the material is applied to the rebar at a mill away from the job site, it is not weather dependent and will not cause construction delays Cracks in the concrete, allowing penetration of chloride bearing waters, is not a factor because the protection is applied on the bar surface where the problem is usually observed. The most effective form of epoxy coating is the fusion bonded method. This allows the coating to achieve adhesion as the result of the heat-catalyzed reaction. An epoxy coating is formed by combining an epoxy resin with the appropriate curing agents, filters, pigments, catalyst and leveling and flow control agents to achieve the desired characteristics It is applied from an electrostatic charged powder state to a pre-heated rebar. The powder when comes in contact with the hot bar, it melts, gets and cures to a well adhered, continuous corrosion resistant coating. The first fusion bonded epoxy coating designed specifically for reinforcing steel was put in the market in 1976. Since then, continuous research, design and testing have taken place which have enhanced and confirmed the effectiveness of fusion bonded epoxy coated rebar [FBECR] in preventing steel......

...plantations. They are also sold as prostitutes. The children are bonded to the traffickers or to the person to whom they are sold. It is nearly impossible for them to work off the debt they owe to the trafficker and the childrens' families rarely have the means to raise enough money to buy them back. Child slaves work between 10 and 20 hours per day, often seven days a week. They are given little to no time for rest, play or education. Often, the children are not given adequate food, clothing or healthcare. Furthermore, the enslaved raja.balqis2children run a high risk of being physically or sexually abused. Some child slaves successfully escape from slaveholders, but the majority are unable to return to their families. Although slavery is illegal everywhere, it continues to exist in some parts of the world. Its existence is rarely acknowledged by citizens of more industrialised countries, despite the fact that it is a part of the global economy. The term 'slavery' is rarely used anymore. Instead, slavery is usually referred to as 'bonded labour' or 'human trafficking.' The slavery that exists today is wholly different from the form which existed two centuries ago. Children are particularly vulnerable to the new slavery. In 2002, the International Programme on the Elimination of Child Labour (IPEC) estimated that of the 246 million child labourers in the world, 8.4 million are bonded or forced labourers. ......

Bonded Warehouse

...solution or suggestions to address the problems. The committee came up with a recommendation of establishment of warehouse in some designated places across the country. By this, license given to some companies to establish Private Bonded Terminals came as a big relieve to stakeholders in the maritime industry. The Private Bonded Terminals were licensed to provide storage facilities for cargoes such that once a vessel berths, the container cargoes are allocated to a Private/Consolidated Terminal Operator to store them while the agents sort out all necessary documentations. The 100% Physical Examination by the consumer was made easier at the various Private Bonded Terminals. By this all the delays encountered at the port are minimized, if not totally eradicated. The success of the examination regime can be linked to the enabling environment provided by the Private/Consolidated Bonded warehouse operators. The Private Bonded Terminal operators have displayed the efficiency that private sector initiative in providing services is noted for. The coming up of the Private Bonded Terminals has brought about prompt loading of vessels as such the wastage occasioned by delays are eliminate. 1.1 BACKGROUND INFORMATION OF BONDED WAREHOUSES The practice of using bonded warehouse in Nigerian Ports as important trade facilitators was not given the desired recognition in Nigeria until the port congestion of the past few years that bedeviled the nation's port.

Ball Bond Reliabilty: Fem of Pull and Shear Test

...Ball Bond Reliability: Simulation of Pull and Shear Test 1. This is a student paper, and some names have changed from the original abstract. I’m Electrical Engineering student and the topic is the simulation of pull and shear tests for ball bonds by finite element methods. 2. Here we see a Au ball bond, and models that we have created in AYSYS at the university to simulate it. The bond ball shown is fully bonded to a pad Al film, which is bonded to other films in the bond pad stack of a 4-level metal IC. We use 3D modeling with about 250-thousand nodes. The lower picture shows a simulated shear tool of W material. Pull test is simulated by applying a force to the top, and shear test is by applying a horizontal force to the W. Purposes for this project are listed here. We are using 3D FEM to simulate the stresses experienced by the ball bond during pull and shear testing. We want to examine the stress locations and magnitudes, and see what a bond might experience as we change the wire material, pull angle, bond pad metallization, pad Al thickness, and circuitry under pad. 3. The Bond Pull Strength test typically follows a Mil standard, 883G method 2011. 25-micron Au wire is considered reliable if the bond does not pull off below 3 gram-Force, or about 30milli-Newtons. The pull angle for the bond on the IC can actually vary in practice. 4. The Bond Shear test follows a JEDEC standard in JESD22, method B116A . In this test, the tool pushes......

...BONDED LABOR IN ABROAD Bonded labor is a person's pledge of their labor or services as repayment for a loan or other debt. The services required to repay the debt may be undefined, and the services duration may be undefined. Debt bondage can be passed on from generation to generation. The issue of bonded labor may receive marginal attention globally, but bonded labor is the most extensive form of slavery in the world today. There were approximately 18 to 20.5 million bonded laborers in the world at the end of 2011, almost 90% of whom were in South Asia. This means that approximately half of the slaves in the world are bonded laborers in South Asia, particularly in Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and in America and Africa. In America In the Americas, peonage was extended to include criminal peonage, where prisoners sentenced to hard labor were 'farmed out' to private or governmental groups. Peonage is a type of involuntary servitude of laborers (peons) having little control over their employment conditions. Peonage existed historically during the colonial period, especially in Latin America. As the New Mexico laws supported peonage, the US Congress passed an anti-peonage law on March 2, 1867. The current version of this statute is codified at Chapter 21-I of 42 U.S.C. § 1994 and makes no specific mention of New Mexico. In Africa Africa has its own unique version of debt bondage. Afrocentric academics claim that this was a much milder form of debt......

...tissues. Storage proteins provide a source of amino acids for plants and animals that are developing such as seeds and eggs. Contractile proteins are primarily in muscles. Transport proteins transports oxygen from an animals lungs to other parts of the body. Defensive proteins protect the body as antibodies. Signal proteins conveys messages between cells. Enzymes change the rate of a chemical reaction without being changed. 2. There are 20 different kinds of amino acids in a protein. Amino acids consists of a central carbon atom bonded to four covalent partners. Three of the attachments are consistent within each amino acid, a carboxyl group, an amino group, and a hydrogen atom. What makes each amino acid different from another is that the fourth bond of the central carbon has a different radical group. 3. A protein polymer is called a polypeptide. A polypeptide is made of 100 or more amino acids bonded by dehydration reactions. The bonded amino acids are called peptide bonds. 4. The difference between a polypeptide chain and a protein is that a protein needs more than one polypeptide to be functional. Polypeptide is only one part of the overall protein. 5. The four levels of a protein structure are the primary structure, secondary structure, tertiary structure, and the quaternary structure. The primary structure is the unique sequence of amino acids in the polypeptide chain. The secondary structure can either be an alpha helix or a pleated sheet, either way......

...n this case, the oxidation number for S is +2.5 Why the decimal place? That's because the oxidation number is the average of the various oxidation states in the ion/molecule/compound. In this ion, also known as tetrathionate ion, image There are 4 S atoms. There are 2 with oxidation state +0 while there are 2 with oxidation states +5. That averages out to +2.5 per S atom and hence corresponds to your oxidation number. FYI, the oxidation state of the 2 central S atoms is +0 is because any atom bonded with similar atoms has an oxidation state of +0 Notice that sulfur has a fractional oxidation number of +2.5. What that means is that not all the sulfur atoms present in the tetrathionate molecule have the same oxidation number. In fact, +2.5 is the average of those oxidation numbers. Here's why that is The two sulfur atoms that are bonded to each other have an oxidation number ofzero. At the same time, the two sulfur atoms that are each bonded to 3 oxygen atoms will have an oxidation number of +5. The average oxidation number of the sulfur atoms in the tetrathionate molecule will thus be ON=0+0+5+54=+2.5 So, on the reactants' side you have 4 sulfur atoms, S4, each with an average oxidation number of +2.5. On the reactants' side, you have 4 sulfur atoms, 2⋅S2, each with an average oxidation number of +2....
