Tenemos facts.10 TIEMPO FRACTAL Cuando nos casamos con los hechos de la ciencia de hoy con la sabiduría y los registros históricos del pasado, nos encontramos con una historia que es casi más allá de la creencia. Es la historia de un viaje, el viaje-que se inició hace mucho tiempo que ha tomado más de 256 generaciones y cinco milenios para llegar al final. Ahora que lo está haciendo, descubrimos que el fin es en realidad el inicio de un nuevo viaje.

...powerful party member, told me: “He is lazy! Write his answers for him, and remind him to learn them by heart.” So I did. Comrade Homola arrived at the last moment. When the red light went on and I asked the first question, he reached into his pocket, took out my answers and started to read them, awkwardly and obediently — including my inadvertent grammatical mistakes. And thus, to my consternation, went the whole interview. In the control booth, my boss hit the roof. I was fired the next day for ridiculing a representative of the state. Whatever his faults, I don’t see much of a socialist in Mr. Obama or, thankfully, signs of that system in this great nation. Mr. Obama is accused of trying to expand the reach of government — into health care, financial regulation, the auto industry and so on. It’s fair to question whether the federal government should have expanded powers: America, to its credit, has debated this since its birth. But let’s be clear about how frightening socialism actually could be. Marx believed that we could wipe out social inequities and Lenin tested those ideas on the Soviet Union. It was his dream to create a classless society. But reality set in, as it always does. And the results were devastating. Blood flowed through Russia’s streets. The Soviet elite usurped all privileges; sycophants were allowed some and the plebes none. The entire Eastern bloc, including Czechoslovakia, followed miserably. I’m not sure Americans today appreciate quite......

...inverter. Pulse Width Modulated (PWM) technique may be used to control output rms voltage of the inverter. As the load is variable, the power consumed by the load (PL) may be smaller than the power generated from the renewable energy source (PR). Therefore a Flexible AC Transmission System (FACTS) Controller may be used to supply the additional power (PR – PL) from the renewable energy source to the grid. On the other hand if the power consumed by the load (PL) is greater than the power generated from the renewable energy source (PR) therefore the same FACTS controller may be used to absorb the additional power (PR – PL) from the grid to the load. In this case the FACTS controller must allow bi-directional power flow. If all the active houses are connected to the grid in the same way (proposed way), the active houses that generate more power than the load can be supplied to the active houses that generate less power than the load. Therefore a suitable FACTS controller should be designed in such a way that it can control the power flow in both directions. The idea is illustrated in the following figure. 1.2 Objectives: • Study on different FACTS controllers • Study on different renewable energy sources • Study on different energy storage devices • Study on different types of inverters • Implementation of all these resources in a smart......

...of action: Facts: Joseph M. Orlando filed a complaint for slander against fellow attorney, Garrick F. Cole. Allegedly, Orlando suffered harm to his reputation as a lawyer when Cole made false comments to newspaper reporters (oral slander) about his role in an investigation involving a 17-year-old student and a high school basketball coach, Thomas A. Atwater. Cole filed a motion to dismiss the complaint which was allowed. At the time, Atwater was unrepresented and approached Orlando to admit that he had in fact sexually assaulted the high school student. He signed an affidavit and confessed to the police, while Orlando spoke to the media and gave them a copy of Atwater’s affidavit. Cole, who was now representing Atwater, told the same reporters that the affidavit was “inaccurate” and Orlando’s actions were “fraudulent” and “deceitful”. Issue or issues of Law: Are the comments made by Cole reasonably susceptible of a defamatory connotation? Are Cole’s statements ones of fact, opinion, or a combination of both? Holding & Reasoning of Court: In this case, the court concluded that the comments made by Cole are susceptible of a defamatory connotation because the terms used include “inaccurate”, “fraudulent”, and “deceitful”- which all imply misconduct. Orlando’s conduct and Cole’s allegations that the affidavit was “inaccurate” are factual due to the idea that they are capable of being proved false. The statements appear to be based on undisclosed defamatory facts, because......

...How Facts Backfire In How Facts Backfire by Joe Keohane states that, “facts don’t necessarily have the power to change our minds.” He proves the idea of facts backfiring at various points through out his essay through studies and by giving real life examples. “Backfire,” is the key concept in his essay as he states that it means that any individual has his or her own opinions about certain things regardless of being right or wrong. He advances in saying that it is a phenomenon known as “a natural defense mechanism to avoid that cognitive dissonance.” Keohanes explains that in order for a something to “backfire,” an individual whose opinion about a fact is proven wrong he or she gets defensive and believes they’re even more right than they were before. An example he gives of this in his essay is when Keohane describes a situation in which a group of people were asked if they believed there were WMDs in Iraq. Of all those who answered that they believed there was WMDs in Iraq, would not accept that this was in fact a lie and instead believed that there WMDs were in Iraq even more; regardless of the correction. This situation proves the concept of “backfire,” because it demonstrates the idea that the more an individual has to defend their beliefs or opinions, the more they in turn believe it to be true. He implies that people naturally defend themselves and put up that wall is because of their ignorance. Further stating that, “most of us like to believe that our......

...-title page • Table of contents • APA style 12 font • First june 1 • Final 10 Despite promising efforts to stop the Gulf oil leak through a 'top kill' effort, a mind boggling amount of damage has already been done to this precious ocean ecosystem. It can be hard to keep track of all the devastating statistics, quotes, and facts concerning this disaster, but it is essential that the public maintain a working knowledge of what's going on, both politically and environmentally. As a people, we must demand change from both an oil industry that drills first and asks questions later, and the corrupt government agencies that let them get away with it. We must also realize that we have encouraged this sort of behavior through lifestyles that are addicted to oil, and an unwillingness to make sacrifices for a cleaner, healthier future. Here are 10 of the most horrifying facts about the Gulf oil spill. Read them and let their gravity weigh heavy on your hearts and minds. Let them motivate you to take action so our planet never experiences this kind of manmade disaster ever again. 1. New estimates show the undersea well has spilled betweendwarf those of BP, who claimed the spill had only released 11 million gallons to date, and mean that the Gulf leak is far bigger than Exxon Valdez, making it the worst spill in American history. 2.

...For this essay, you will undertake a similar project. Through your personal narrative, you will investigate some misunderstood or misperceived facet of American culture (technology, entertainment, consumerism, etc.) or life (family, illness, disability or any kind of difference, etc.) in order to persuade your readers to think differently. In this week’s discussion, we examined the various strategies used by authors to persuade their audiences. We noted that these authors did not simply assert a thesis and then defend or “prove” it; rather, the authors invited us to explore and think further about a topic. However, as readers we weren’t taken on an unfocused or disorganized journey: * The focus (or what we might understand as the “thesis”) of each essay was clear and woven throughout the essay. * The focus was well supported through appeals to logic, emotion, and through the writer’s expertise on the topic. * The essays were organized in persuasive ways. * The writers carefully crafted their language and tone to appeal to the audience.

...respiratory disease and problems during pregnancy. Around 15 per cent of people aged 25 to 34 - some of the most common users - believe there are no health harms from shisha at all, and 44 per cent think it is less harmful than cigarettes. Dr Mike Knapton, associate medical director at the BHF, said: "Contrary to popular belief, shisha is not safer than smoking cigarettes. Don't be duped by the sweet smell and wholesome sounding fruity flavours - if you use shisha you are a smoker and that means you're putting your health at risk. "It's linked to the same serious and life-threatening diseases as cigarettes and there are added risks because you often smoke it for far longer than you would a cigarette and you're also exposed to toxins from the wood or charcoal used to burn the tobacco." Worryingly, Freedom of Information data from 133 local authorities in major towns and cities across the UK shows 53 per cent have - or have had - a shisha bar since 2007, while more than 40 per cent have seen a rise in the number of shisha bars since the smoking ban came into force. Robin Hewings, Cancer Research UK's tobacco control manager, confirmed that shishas are not a safe alternative to smoking cigarettes. "We know that smoking rates are dropping but there is a real concern that the number of people smoking shisha is on the rise. Shishas are a health risk and we would urge people to treat them with caution." The research on shisha was carried out as part of the No Smoking Day......

Facts on Gmos

...genetically modified foods they have become significantly more available. The approval of GMOs has affected us in ways that we might not even know about. Some foods that we eat may in fact contain some of these genetically modified crops such as cereals and vegetable oils. The Food and Drug Administration has held meetings to discuss the potential threats and benefits of genetically modifying foods. These meetings have brought into the open both positive and negative thoughts on genetically modified foods. Research has shown that there are many advantages that can come from this fairly new invention. As we all know the world’s population is continuously growing and making sure that there is an adequate amount of food is very important. Growing genetically modified foods will meet this need in a number of ways. These GMOs or “super crops” can be modified to be pest resistant. Growing crops that are naturally pest resistance would be a huge help to modern farmers and the environment. With crops being injected with the gene to become pest resistant this will cut down on the use of pesticides that can be health hazards to humans and the environment. Not only do GMOs reduce the use of pesticides but also herbicides that are used to kill weeds that affect the growth of crops. Other than the fact that crops can be modified to be pest resistant, they can also be injected with an anti-freeze or anti-drought gene. Malnutrition is a huge problem in third world countries such as......
