My full name is Lee A. Frazier born in San Diego, California but raised in Atlanta Georgia. I will be tuning 20 on September 26 of this 2013 year. I’m a very laid back, cool, humble, funny, and driven young man that gets alone with pretty much everybody. My life story is different from most because of the things I been through in my short 20 years of life. Growing up at times seemed hard and too tough to endure but today I can stand proud on my story and say everything made me a stronger individual currently. I never had a big family growing up. My hold life it was always my two sister and my mom, a father, uncle, aunt, or grandparents was something we never experienced. My mom was a very strong woman ever since I could remember; a black single mother who did everything by herself, everything. Her mom was a drug user who abandoned her at a young age so she never got the chance to have her apart of her life. My mom managed to finish high school and make it to the navy and at this time she had my older sister at the age 18. My mom served for a couple years then ended do to situations or an accident that I am not fully filed in on. Upon leaving my mom was now considered a disable veteran of the navy. Growing up far as I could remember was distant when it came to us as a family. My mom stayed in her room as of my sister and I. It was some happy moments and laugher but not all the time. Around my 3rd grade year my mom had her 3rd baby my little sister. My mom and my little sister father stayed together for 11 years. Through this time I seen my mom spiral into something I was quit scared of. She became a heavy drinker and very abuses to me and my older sister. For reason I am uncertain of my mom became a person I feared like a bully or a stranger on the street. I use to have panic attacks at every little thing I did in fear of what the punishment might be, and there…...

Tree

...When Trees start out in the wild, their life begins in an area where that type of tree is adapted to and tolerant of the conditions of that particular site. As the trees mature, the site conditions may change. People may modify the land by building houses or office buildings. The building of these structures most times take away an assortment of brush and small plants, thus altering the natural landscape.. Some trees are tolerant of these man made conditions like Oaks and Elms. The types that are not tolerant and cannot adapt only have one choice, and that is too die. (9) Another situation that may occur is the planting of young trees in an urban site. At this young age, it allows its self to become more tolerant to an environment. But, sometimes this tolerance level is not taken into consideration. Trees may be picked just because of their color or size only. This may not be the best situation, and the tree usually dies. In that case, there will be another chance to put a more tolerant tree in that area. The trees that do survive in this condition are in so much shock after being taken out of its tolerant environment, and being put in a none tolerant environment, that their limits are being pushed to the edge. When this happens, the result will be poor performance, and a non-attractive tree. These trees that are not at their peak condition are more prone to contract diseases and attract unwanted visiting insects. The trees that have problems with diseases and insects......

Tree

...a hill in the woods. They were discussing their hopes and dreams when the first tree said, "Someday I hope to be a treasure chest. I could be filled with gold, silver and precious gems. I could be decorated with intricate carving and everyone would see the beauity". The second tree said, "Someday I will be a mighty ship. I will take Kings and Queens across the waters and sail to the corners of the world. Everyone will feel safe in me because of the strength of my hull". Finally, the third tree said, "I want to grow to be the tallest and straightest tree in the forest. People will see me on top of the hill and look up to my branches, and think of the heavens and God and how close to them I am reaching. I will be the greatest tree of all time and people will always remember me". After a few years of praying that their dreams would come true, a group of woodsmen came upon the trees. When one came to the first tree he said, "This looks like s strong tree, I think I should be able to sell the wood to a carpenter".... and he began cutting it down. The tree was happy. because he knew that the carpenter would make him into a treasure chest. At the second tree a woodsman said, "This looks like a strong tree, I should be able to sell it to the shipyard." The second tree was happy because he knew he was on his way to becoming a mighty ship. When the woodsmen came upon the third tree, the tree was frigtened because he knew that if they cut him down his dreams would not......

Forbidden Tree

...Forbidden Tree Callie Franklin HU300 Forbidden Tree As a child, bedtime was the best time of day. Mommy and daddy would look on the bookshelf and find the best exciting stories ever. The majority were old biblical stories that passes from generation to generation. Adam and Eve was the most popular story read to me quite often, a great story. An awesome story line that describes a relationship of betrayal between man, God, and the consequences of disobedience. Adam and Eve contains a countermyth with a countersymbol of the Garden (Janaro, Altshuler, 2011, pg. 47). This story is a great way to help understand whatever is asked of us to do from God or an authority figure, may be for our own good. And it can teach us how to make better choices in life. In The Art of Being Human: The Humanities as a Technique for living, it states that many myth scholars believe that the archetype of the Golden Age had its origins in the biblical account of the Garden, the earthly paradise Adam and Eve called home until they were cast out for eating the forbidden fruit from the tree of knowledge (Janaro, Altshuler, 2011, pg. 47). Adam and Eve is a great story that every child should read about. In the beginning God created the heaven, earth, and man. God created Adam and then created Eve from one of Adam’s ribs. They both were in the Garden of Eden and had everything they wanted. But God told them they could eat from any tree they wanted, but not the tree in the middle of the garden....

The Waste Land

...The Waste Land In South Africa The National Party enforces apartheid by law in 1948. It separates whites from ‘natives’, ‘coloreds’ and ‘Asians’, in every area of life from the buses they travel to work on, to the benches where they may sit at the train stations. This segregation implies that the circumstances for the coloreds and blacks turn into worse circumstances than ever before. When people hear the word apartheid, most of them think about this separating of blacks and whites and the fighting between the blacks and whites. But that is just one of many detriments apartheid has caused. This text “The Waste Land” by Alan Paton deals with a different perspective of apartheids causes – the fights in the colored races. “Mercy was the unknown word” (p. 1, l. 13). This quotation clearly inform us about the blacks’ and coloreds’ conditions below the laws of the National Party which force the black and colored people to hurt each other, so they will have a chance to survive. The main theme in the text is about apartheid’s consequence. More specifically the theme is that you cannot trust anybody – not even your family during the apartheid time: “’Freddy.’ said one. ‘Your father’s got away’” (p. 2, l. 43). It is the man’s own son who tries to rub him. Nobody cares about you. One of the other themes is everything that used to be good turns to the worst. Even your belief neglects him: “…behind him was the high wall of the convent, and the barred door that would not open before a...

Benefits of a Healthy Tree Canopy

...The Benefits of a Healthy Urban Tree Canopy for Baltimore City By: Matt Heilman April 24, 2013 The city of Baltimore would face both costs and benefits in achieving a healthy tree canopy. However, the benefits would far outweigh the costs that are associated in achieving this goal. The city of Baltimore would benefit greatly from a more significant investment in improving the tree canopy. Trees are one of the few elements of our infrastructure that increase in value over time. Trees remove air pollutants, alter microclimates, and reduce air temperature. Tree also absorb and filter water, cool our homes and business and increase property value. They are known to reduce stress, aggression and asthma rates and increase the livability and vitality of our neighborhoods and businesses. A tree canopy is the percent of a city’s land area that has tree cover (MDNR. 2008). Many cities in the U.S., including Baltimore have seen a major reduction in tree and forest cover over the past several decades (U.S. Forest Services). In 2003 the Chesapeake Bay Executive Council Directive 03-01 recognized that “urban tree canopy cover offers water quality benefits for municipalities” (TreeBaltimore). American Forests, a pioneer in the science of urban forestry, determined that the healthiest cities have a 40% tree canopy (TreeBaltimore). This encouraged communities to adopt urban tree canopy goals. Working with the Maryland Department of Natural Resources and the U.S. Forest Services,......

To use these methods, you need (a) a model of your decision problem under uncertainty with payoffs and probabilities and (b) a willingness to summarize a payoff distribution (payoffs with associated probabilities) using expected value. The methods can be modified to use certain equivalents for a decision maker who is not risk neutral. 224 Chapter 19 Value of Information in Decision Trees Expected Value of Perfect Information, Reordered Tree Figure 19.1 Structure, Cash Flows, Endpoint Values, and Probabilities 0.5 High Sales $400,000 $700,000 0.3 Medium Sales $100,000 -$300,000 $400,000 0.2 Low Sales 1 $100,000 -$200,000 Introduce Product Don't Introduce $0 $0 Figure 19.2 Rollback Expected Values 0.5 High Sales $400,000 Introduce Product $190,000 0.3 Medium Sales $100,000 0.2 Low Sales 1 $190,000......

Banyan Tree

...HKU774 CATHY ENZ ALI FARHOOMAND BANYAN TREE: SUSTAINABILITY OF A BRAND DURING RAPID GLOBAL EXPANSION Within the next five years, if we play our expansion card right and we manage our growth properly, we have a reasonable, credible opportunity to become one of the top two or three dominant players in a global space which is very niche but nevertheless very global. - K.P. Ho, CEO of Banyan Tree Holdings Limited1 On 14 August 2006, exactly two months after its initial public offering (“IPO”), Banyan Tree Holdings Limited announced second-quarter results for the period ending on 30 June. Revenue had more than doubled to S$71.42 million, largely due to recovery following the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami. The company felt that this was only the beginning, however, and had earmarked part of the IPO proceeds to finance an ambitious expansion plan. At the core of its business development plan was a proposal to open 21 new resorts3 over four years that would span non-Asian territories from Greece to Mexico. Banyan Tree CEO Ho Kwon Ping’s vision was to “string a necklace [of Banyan Tree properties] around the world”. The Asian Financial Crisis of 1997, the SARS crisis of 2003 and the Indian Ocean tsunami of 2004 had taken their toll on the travel and tourism industry [see Exhibit 1]. Although recovery was on the horizon, Ho understood the need to diversify risks across geographical regions and the IPO provided the finances to venture out of familiar territory.......

Tree God

...TREE GOD MOTTO: My motto is to help people, plants, animals and birds to live a happy and healthy life without polluting the environment but save more for the future and make it brighter. NOTE: Without tree there is no life. A mother gives us life by giving us birth and a tree is even greater than a mother as it gives us birth every day, every second to numerous living beings in this earth. IDEA: The idea about my plan is regarding a social service that is helpful to the environment in reducing pollution in the atmosphere by planting saplings and making sure that they grow into big and health trees. It is important for me to mention that this is totally a non-profitable organization and the main motto is to give life to birds and animals as trees are considered to be a shelter to living beings. This organization is named as, ‘Tree God’. This name is inspired because a tree gives us life every second and everyday just as God does. Without trees, there is no life on Mother Earth. Plant trees to save the life of all living beings and mother earth. Save your lungs. Do not pollute the environment. If you do, this is what you will go through... Without a tree it is not possible for a human being to even survive for even a second as trees breathe in carbon dioxide that we release and breathe out oxygen that we inhale. This oxygen is very essential to human beings or any animal. The beauty about a tree is that, it absorbs poison that we......

The population of a place increases in just a short time. However, the space in a place remains the same. When the houses in a neighbourhood are overcrowded, it shows that the population in the area is too big. This is a common sight in a city. Many poor people build shanties along creeks, in dumpsites or along railroads. More than one family may share a shanty. Overpopulation in a community can limit space for housing. And in this kind of scenario we will saw that overpopulation has a bigger factor not only in food and water but also in land space. Food shortage, overcrowding, poor water supply and environmental pollution affect the health of the people, particularly the children. Poor environmental sanitation is a major cause of diseases such as diarrhea, typhoid and cholera. Dirty insects such as flies and cockroaches contaminate food with disease-causing germs. Many children who play barefoot in dirty areas and do not wash their hands before eating become infected with worms. Some respiratory diseases such as tuberculosis, pneumonia and bronchitis are worsened by polluted air. Communicable diseases can easily be transferred from one person to another in an overpopulated area. This is the some salient features that cause of overpopulation that affect the economy of...
