HISTORY

Lennox Washington was raised by his mother and aunt in Idlewood, Los Santos. His father Wardell Washington divorced his mother when he was seven years old and hasn't been in Lennox's life ever since. His mother Trisha Banks has brought up Lennox as a single mother in a rough neighbourhood, plagued with drugs and violence. Trisha Banks had worked as a cashier in a local 24-7, nearby where they lived.

Lennox attended Downtown Elementary School until he was transferred to East Los Santos Elementary school due to violent conduct against teachers and school pupils. When Lennox was transferred, he dropped out when he reached sixteen years of age. His mother, Trisha couldn't afford to pay the bills for their house and was forced to move in a government-owned housing projects called Wilshire Boulevard. The projects were much safer than where they previously lived before, but drugs and crime was still a problem in Idlewood.

As soon as Lennox settled in Wilshire Housing Projects, he began learning the system of selling drugs on the corner. At first, he didn’t get too involved with the drug dealing; afraid that his mother and aunt might find out. Lennox is trying to make a living in Idlewood, by doing anything that is necessary to earn…...

Colour Symbolism in the Collector

...Colour Symbolism in The Collector Colour plays a vitally important role throughout ‘The Collector’ in terms of how it manages to sway thinking and cause reactions. The use of colour in literature is particularly stimulating as it conveys meanings in two ways- natural associations and psychological symbolism, it is clear that Fowles has an acute understanding of how and why colours communicate meaning. With this understanding he uses colour symbolism in several different ways, the main two being; to emphasize obsession and to demonstrate how different the two main characters are. The reader is aware that Fredrick Clegg is an obsessive character instantly, his infatuation with Miranda is emphasized as he describes the fantasy life he daydreamed about in which she is ‘all pretty with her pale blonde hair and grey eyes and of course the other men all green round the gills.’ Colour symbolism here is used in several ways; firstly, ‘green round the gills’ meaning jealous, illustrates the longing Clegg feels to be superior and envied, perhaps because he has felt socially inferior for so long. Though more interestingly, this very obvious link between the colour green and jealousy reveals the simplicity in which Clegg expresses himself. His speech is so formal it feels uncomfortable, this dated, old fashioned phrase and the child-like associations he makes, feel to me, as if Fowles is using colour symbolism to accentuate the almost inhuman formality and simplicity that Clegg......

...transistor with the collector of the first transistor. Transistor (T1) is ON when there is a light present on the LDR because the voltage drop across the variable resistor is greater than 0.6V so that’s why the emitter collector is shorted all the current passes through this and transistor (T2) is turned off. That’s why we have no output when there is light because we are getting the output across T2. And whenever the LDR detects no light, T1 is off and T2 is on so we got the output in the dark. A bipolar junction transistor can be used in many circuit configurations; as an amplifier, oscillator, filter rectifier or just used as a switch. If the transistor is biased into a linear region, it will be used as an amplifier or another linear circuit, if biased into saturation or cut-off, then it will be used as a switch, controlling other circuits. This article describes the BJT when used as a switch. Transistor as a switch BJT used as an electronic switch, in grounded-emitter configuration. Transistors are commonly used as electronic switches, both for high-power applications such as switched-mode power suppliesand for low-power applications such as logic gates. In a grounded-emitter transistor circuit, such as the light-switch circuit shown, as the base voltage rises, the emitter and collector currents rise exponentially. The collector voltage drops because of the collector load resistance (in this example, the resistance of the light bulb). If the collector voltage......

Astable Multivibrators and Amplifiers

...circuit, the input voltage is fed to the base of the transistor, and the output appears at the transistors collector; the ratio of the output voltage to the input voltage is called the voltage gain. A bipolar junction transistor (BJT) is a type of transistor that counts on the contact of the two types of semiconductor for it to work. BJT’s can be used as amplifiers, switches, or an oscillator. It is called bipolar because their operation involves both electrons and holes. The regions of a BJT are called the emitter, base, and collector. BJT’s come in two types, known as PNP and NPN based on the doping of the main terminal regions. A common-emitter amplifier is a basic single-stage bipolar junction transistor amplifier topologies, usually used as a voltage amplifier. The CE amplifier configuration in which the emitter is the common terminal to an ac signal or ground. In the CE circuit the base terminal of the transistor serves as the input, the collector is the output, and the emitter is common to both. Common emitter amplifiers give an inverted output; they can have a very high gain that may differ from one transistor to the next. The gain is a function of both temperature and bias current, and so the actual gain is somewhat unpredictable. A common-base amplifier has am input between the emitter and the base. A CB amplifier has an output that is between the collector and the base. It is called the common-base because the signal source and the load share the base......

Pharisee and the Tax Collector

...De’Aisha Waller Professor Trokan Religion 102 November 11, 2013 "For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted." This one sentence summary found at the very end of Luke 18:9-14 should give us all a good slap in the face. This particular passage is of vital importance in the Christian walk. Luke 18:9-14 tells us about a Pharisee and a tax collector who both go to a temple to pray. The Pharisee stands before God praying about himself; he thanks God that he is not like other men and women and that he is not like the tax collector beside him. At the same time, the tax collector lays himself down before the Lord praying that God have mercy on him, a sinner. Recognizing his sin and unworthiness the tax collector humbles himself and asks for the Lords mercy; which brings him forgiveness and peace. The Pharisee on the other hand looks down upon the tax collector and even thanks God that he is not like other men and women. This sense of self drives a wedge in the Pharisees relationship to God and also brings wrath and judgment upon himself. As I read this passage I found myself saying, "I must remain humble." Asking that question daily in every situation and circumstance will help each to avoid a mind set of self-righteousness as seen in Luke 18:9-14. (cf. Forerunner Commentary) The historical context of Luke is fairly interesting. Upon reading the gospels one might conclude that Matthew, Mark and Luke all pretty much say the......

Fair Debt Collection

...to debt collectors. This paper will provide information about how to stop calls from collectors and how to correspond with them about your account or to dispute a collection action. This paper also explain one’s right to privacy, and how debt collection efforts may affect your job, your credit report, even information in your medical files. This paper will also reflect from the business owner’s aspect and how debt collection agencies can affect their business, especially if the collection agency is not following the law as they should. Why are you being contacted by a collection agency? It usually means that a creditor has not received payment from you for several months. They have negotiated with another company or are using an in-house affiliate called a debt collector to attempt to get you to pay. Third party collectors often purchase your debt for less than you owe, and your debt is now owned by the collector. A collector may also work for the creditor in return for a fee or a percentage of any money collected. In-house collectors that are affiliated with the original creditor work on behalf of the company directly. Because the creditor has taken a loss on your account or because you are late with making payments, this negative information may show up on your credit report. Often the first contact with the debt collector is a telephone call from a representative, a prerecorded message asking you to call a mysterious toll-free number, or a letter. When a collector calls......

Isolation Is Not Happiness

...course? Chris McCandless and the shell collector lived a life of solitude because they didn’t want to face life’s challenges as they were. They were selfish and had no reason to excommunicate themselves from the people who truly loved and cared for them. They soon came to realize that isolating themselves from humanity wasn’t the way to go about in life. But their realization came too late and neither of them got a chance to tell their loved ones how they felt. Jon Krakauer’s national bestselling novel, Into the Wild, and Anthony Doerr’s short story of, “The Shell Collector” have a similar theme in the characterization of the protagonist, in the purpose of isolation, and in the realization of needing people in the end. The protagonist, Chris McCandless, from Into the Wild, never had a stationary lifestyle because he was always moving from place to place. He was a very nomadic person because he loved to explore nature and he did in a way that made him travel to different parts of the United States. Chris didn’t have just one way of getting around, he often hitchhiked, walked, or hopped on a train in hopes of not getting caught (Krakauer, p. 32-37). His way of living consisted of sleeping in the street, making friends at a trailer park, or finding a scenic area where he could settle in for a couple days. He never spent more than a few days in one area because he always felt he needed to experience a different view of nature. The shell collector, on the other hand, wasn’t......

The Very Important Thing

...9-505-031 REV: DECEMBER 5, 2005 JOHN DEIGHTON Nectar: Making Loyalty Pay Persuading British households to do anything was not easy, yet, in the 18 months leading up to March 2004, Loyalty Management UK (LMUK) had induced over 54% of them to try collecting Nectar points and 40% to persist, making Nectar Britain’s largest rewards program. Each week it added 50,000 new members (whom Nectar called collectors). Rob Gierkink, CEO of LMUK, was pleased with his team’s accomplishment. In March 2004 Justin King had just taken over as group chief executive at Sainsbury’s, the supermarket chain that was Nectar’s largest issuer of points. He saw that more than half of Sainsbury’s 240 million pound (₤) annual marketing budget went to Nectar and said: “Nectar represents a significant investment for Sainsbury’s, and I can’t help but feel that if we put the investment into more staff in our stores we’d see a better return. I was part of the senior management team that turned around the ASDA supermarket chain before it was sold to Wal-Mart, and the changes we made at ASDA were all about price and value for money. ASDA didn’t have a loyalty program.” He continued: But I do understand the value of knowing more about what our customers are doing dayto-day and this is part of the value we get from Nectar. We use the Nectar data on our customers to help us determine which stock to carry in which stores. The Nectar data also allows us to do much better and more targeted......

Bipolar Junction Transistor (Bjt)

...base region and the collector region. There are two types of bipolar junction transistor: NPN transistor and PNP transistor. In an NPN type, a thin and lightly doped P-type material is sandwiched between two thicker N-type materials; while in a PNP type, a thin and lightly doped N-type material is sandwiched between two thicker P-type materials. BJTs can also be used as amplifiers, switches, or in oscillators. (BJTs) can be characterized by the single relationship between the current going through and the voltage across the two leads. And it can be considered as a two-port network with an input-port and an output-port, each port formed by two of the three terminals, and characterized by the relationships of both input and output currents and voltages. There are three possible configurations for the two-port network formed by a transistor, depending on which of the three terminals is used as common terminal: common emitter (CE), common base (CB), and common collector (CC). Common-base configuration is a transistor operation mode that base is common on both collector and emitter of the BJT. Common-base configuration diagram Common-collector configuration is a transistor operation mode that collector is common on both base and emitter of the BJT. It has high input impedance and low output impedance.

These plants, which continue to operate on a daily basis, range in size from 14 to 80 MW and represent a total of 354 MW of installed electric generating capacity. Large fields of parabolic trough collectors supply the thermal energy used to produce steam for a Rankine steam turbine/generator cycle. Figure 1. Solar/Rankine parabolic trough system schematic [1]. Plant Overview Figure 1 shows a process flow diagram that is representative of the majority of parabolic trough solar power plants in operation today. The collector field consists of a large field of single-axis tracking parabolic trough solar collectors. The solar field is modular in nature and is composed of many parallel rows of solar collectors aligned on a north-south horizontal axis. Each solar collector has a linear parabolic-shaped reflector that focuses the sun’s direct beam radiation on a linear receiver located at the focus of the parabola. The collectors track the sun from east to west during the day to ensure that the sun is continuously focused on the linear receiver. A heat transfer fluid (HTF) is heated as it circulates through the receiver and returns to a series of heat exchangers in the power block where the fluid is used to 5-24 SOLAR PARABOLIC TROUGH generate high-pressure superheated steam.
