Computer Mouse

...Computer Mouse The Computer Mouse The computer mouse first came about in the early 1980's. The idea being that the movement from the users hand could be turned into signals that the computer could read moving the cursor around and also allowing the buttons to function when pressed. Today there are a few different types of computer mice on the market. These being the mice that use the traditional tracking ball, the optical mouse and the mouse that has no physical connection to the computer. The most common mouse found near a computer today is the traditional mouse that uses the tracking ball. This is the same method as was used when the mouse was first released in the 1980's. The track ball inside the mouse touches the desk when it is moved. When the ball moves the motion is detected by two perpendicular axis, one which detects x axis directional motion and the other y-axis direction motion. Tracking Ball Perpendicular axis motion detectors Hole in which track ball would sit The diagrams above show the tracking ball and the hole in which the tracking ball sits. You can see the x and y axis motion detectors of which the y-axis detector lies 90° from the x-axis detector. These motion detectors are also known as rollers. When the mouse is in use the tracking ball moves moving one or both of the rollers. Each roller is connected to a shaft, which spins a disc. The disc has holes in it and next to the disc is an infrared...

Diary of a Church Mouse Overview

...Betjeman is Diary of a Church Mouse. The speaker is of course the diarist, a lean and hungry mouse who writes in couplets mostly of iambic tetrameter The mouse gets by alone most days in a “dark forgotten room” that is a storage place for discarded cassocks and old hassocks. He subsists on eating the pages of discarded prayer books; “sawdust mixed with straw” is as near as he can come to bread, and floor polish is his jelly. He comments that “Christmas and Easter may be feasts/ For congregations and for priests.”, also Whitsun or Pentecost, which comes seven weeks after Easter. He adds that “For me the only feast at all/ Is Autumn’s Harvest Festival.” In America that is the last Thursday of November, Thanksgiving. In England, Harvest Festival is both a church affair and a secular revel, when the end of harvest is celebrated with people bringing baskets of fruit and vegetables to decorate their local church and then to be distributed to the poor. At this time the diarist can dine on “ears of corn around the [baptismal] font” and “burrow through a loaf of bread.” However, during Harvest Festival: . . . how annoying when one finds That other mice with pagan minds Come into church my food to share Who have no proper business there. The mouse mentions two field mice, an unfriendly rat who steals off with a sheaf of wheat, “prosperous mice from fields away” who come to hear the organ music and Ate through the altar’s sheaf of oats. A Low Church mouse, who thinks that......

History of Mickey Mouse

...Mickey Mouse Many years ago who would have believed a small little rodent creature would be the icon of not just a multi-billion dollar company, but a symbol of innocence, youth, and happiness. The icon of course is no other than Mickey Mouse, a character that has hundreds of different meanings to many different people. Mickey today is not the same mouse that first appeared in 1928. Mickey was once a mischievous, adventurer, and over the years has transformed into a cheerful, calm, educational tool. Mickey Mouse originally created to be only an animation appeared on the big screen on November 18, 1928. Mickey Mouse’s first appearance was in “Plane Crazy” (1928). This short film was about Mickey becoming a pilot as an attempt to impress his future girlfriend Minnie Mouse. His goal throughout the cartoon was to get Minnie to kiss him while flying the plane. He tries so hard to get the kiss that he leaves Minnie to no other choice, but to parachute out of the plane to escape. Shortly after this cartoon was made another one titled “ Gallopin’ Gaucho” (1928), but it was not until “Steamboat Willie” (1928) that Mickey became very popular. During Walt Disney’s time other cartoonists were trying out innuendo and sexuality, or trying to steal ideas from one another, the Walt Disney creations became original, enjoyable and something for the entire family, regardless of age to enjoy together. Mickey Mouse has a very unique personality that represents his founder Walt......

The History of the Computer Mouse

...The History of the Computer Mouse The computer mouse is considered an input device. With a click of a button, the mouse sends information to the computer. The computer mouse is an interesting device that offers an alternative way to interact with the computer beside a keyboard. A typical mouse has two buttons. At the top of the device you will find a left and right button which allows for “clicks”. There is a scrolling wheel between the two buttons. Douglas Engelbart's device was not the first pointing device. In fact, it seems that the first product was a trackball. It was invented a lot earlier, in 1953, by Tom Cranston, Fred Longstaff and Kenyon Taylor for the Royal Canadian Navy. As part of the secret military project DATAR. The name “trackball” comes from the fact that the respective device actually used a standard Canadian five-pin bowling ball. Just imagine how “easy” using such a product really was. (Vochin, 2009) Engelbart created the first prototypes of the now-familiar device in 1963 at Stanford Research Institute, but he first displayed his creation to the public in Dec 6, 1968. ( Edwards, 2008) The mouse was much larger than today's mouse, square, and had a small button in the top right corner. It used two wheels to roll back and forth. It was the also the first mouse that could fit into a user's hand. In 1972, Jack Hawley and Bill English, inspired by Engelbart’s work, designed a digital mouse for Xerox PARC. This new mouse didn’t require an......

Country Mouse

...country mouse and a city mouse. The country mouse lives in a simple house and eats simple food. By comparison, the city mouse lives in a beautiful house and eats well every day. The country mouse wants the life of the city mouse. However, after he goes with the city mouse to taste experience (CH) city life, he does not like it any more. The country mouse prefers to be poor and happy rather than be rich and afraid. (82) Commentary: In my opinion, the story is quite interesting and inspiring in general because it teaches us a life lesson. To me (=I think), the ending seems the most interesting part of the story. This is because in the end the country mouse suddenly realizes/learns that he does not want a rich and dangerous life, but a simple and happy one. I like this part because it also inspires us/leads us to think deeply about our own lives. We might think that a good life means a rich life. However, (=But) according to the story, a good life should be simple and happy. It gives us a different idea about life, which I also agree with itthis . Therefore, (=so) I think this story is interesting and inspiring. (122) Deconstruction: yes, this forms a very good base for your teaching script – well done! VPs:  GREEN: Mental*8; > BLUE: Relational*6; > PINK: Material*3 Mental process and relational process are significant in this commentary. A few material verbs occur. Reason: Mental verbs construe both the change of mind of the country mouse......

Mouse Trap Case Study

...rests on two narrow “stilts” attached to the two bottom corners of the door. The trap works with simple efficiency. A mouse, smelling the bait, enters the tube through the open end. As it walks up the angled bottom toward the bait, its weight makes the elevated end of the trap drop downward. This elevates the open end, allowing the hinged door to swing closed, trapping the mouse. Small teeth on the ends of the stilts catch in a groove on the bottom of the trap, locking the door closed. The mouse can be disposed of live, or it can be left alone for a few hours to suffocate in the trap. Martha believed that the trap had many advantages for the consumer when compared with traditional spring-loaded traps or poisons. It appeals to consumers who want a humane alternative to spring traps. Furthermore, with Trap-Ease, consumers can avoid the unpleasant mess they encounter with the violent spring-loaded traps—there are no clean-up problems. Finally, the consumer can reuse the trap or simply throw it away. Martha’s early research suggested that women were the best target market for the Trap-Ease. Men, it seems, were more willing to buy and use the traditional spring-loaded trap. The targeted women, however, did not like the traditional trap. They often stay at home and take care of their children. Thus, they want a means of dealing with the mouse problem that avoids the unpleasantness and risks that the standard trap creates in the home. To reach this target......

Cat or Mouse

...Cat or Mouse Along the novel the symbolic figures of the cat and the mouse, are named constantly. The cat mainly represents the persecutor, the repressor, while the mouse represents the victim. The cat in the novel represents, for instance, the Nazis and the mouse, the occupied and humiliated Poland. Pilenz and Mahlke also represent both animals: Pilenz the cat as direct or indirectly contributes to Mahlke's destruction, and then again the love and hate relationship that he feels towards Mahlke creates in him such dependence that later turns him into the mouse. Mahlke is the mouse. An animal which is also represented by Mahlke's apple of his throat because he is eternaly humiliated even though he keeps trying to be accepted by the Nazi society all the time, making all kind of feats to pay people's attention. Mahlke is also a cat because of the feelings of dependence and of inferiority that he awakes in Pilenz. The reader is not expected to share Pilenz admiration for Mahlke', due to the way Pilenz tells Mahlke's story. One may have a feeling that, when reading Pilenz's words, Mahlke's attitude is sometimes irritable, egocentric, and so on, despite often the fact that Pilenz wants to deny those feelings which we perceive that he shows. Many times the group of friend’s joke and laugh at Mahlke, including Pilenz: “We laughed as, bluish and shivering, he crossed himself with his waterlogged fingertips, attempted to move his lips in prayer and produced a bit of Latin between......

Hanging of the Mouse

...Hanging of the Mouse “Hanging of the Mouse” is one of the most touching stories I have ever read. It talks about how in the old days, to teach moral lessons, they hung the prisoner(s). People would watch them publicly, and the people would enjoy them. The people saw it as a source of entertainment. They believed that by watching them, it would teach people that if you do something wrong you would be punished. Something more like a moral lesson. Bishop would not agree to this. I believe that she does not believe in public executions. Just seeing the fake mouse hanging over the chair made her feel unpleasant. Just imagining the little feet curling up when the mouse finally passed, just got to her. Actually witnessing an execution, I believe, would make her not feel like it was a moral lesson learned. It would only make her feel uncomfortable inside. “Who hangs one corrects a thousand.” I believe Bishop would not agree with this either. Again I think it makes her feel very uneasy. Also I think she believes in a fair fight. Whoever did wrong should be able to maybe get out on parole or good behavior. Sometimes when you make mistakes it may not be on purpose. Some people act on impulse. Another reason that she may not believe is because even though people have watched these executions, they still commit crimes. So this just proves that even though you are trying to show a “moral lesson” people do not take it that way. It is just like they used this source of punishment......

Cat and Mouse Jewish Holocaust

...sometimes look back to see how I got into this situation just for being a mouse. I remember coming here for the first time , the cats where separating the mice to see who was strong enough to work, who wasn’t ,separating little mice from their families. Fortunately I was strong enough to work, not that it did any good. We were all controlled by cats who never had sympathy for any mice and enjoyed beating and torturing us.When I came I saw what I thought was a big bakery ,but it was just a building where other mice were being cremated. It was like we were bread being burned in a oven. Me and other mice are slaves ,carrying big stones on our backs .If we were to drop them we would be beaten be the mighty and powerful cats who had claws that were as sharp as knifes. The claws would cut through the thin uniforms we would have to wear everyday. Some mice did try to rebel against the cats, but the cats towered over them by how big and the quantity of them. Those mice were immediately killed. Anyways, today was the same as any other day. I woke up really early, not that I have had much sleep due to sleeping in the tiniest of place with about 6 other mice. Next we were to due anything the cats said to avoid being killed. Today there wasn’t much to do, just carry heavy stones back and forth and dig big holes. We didn’t even get much to eat, you were considered lucky if you even got food. During the day, a fellow mouse told me about how the cats killed us ,the mice. He said......

Trap Ease Mouse Traps

...the mess or the risks created by traditional mouse traps. This is a good marketing segment to start off with but there are a couple of things that Martha could have improved on. First off, she should have probably segmented women into a couple different groups. In today’s world all women don’t stay at home and take care of kids. In fact the population of women that do that is rapidly shrinking and being replaced by independent professionals. In effect, by targeting women that stay at home, Martha is targeting a shrinking market. She could probably segment women into a couple different categories. For example: working women, single women, house wives, etc. There are also other markets which Martha could target. Some other market segments that hold large potential for the Trap-Ease are markets like environmentalists, animal lovers, corporate businesses and families. The Trap-Ease mouse trap is re-useable and therefore is reusable and therefore creates less of a strain on the environment which would make it a very attractive thing for environmentalists and people who care about the earth. The environmentalist market is also growing as people become more aware of global warming and other problems such as deforestation. Animal lovers would love the Trap-Ease mouse trap because it doesn’t require poison or pose the risk of snapping closed on a paw or tongue of a pet. Corporate Businesses would probably like the Trap-Ease mouse trap because of its high quality more......

Balabac Mouse Deer

...------------------------------------------------- Balabac Mouse Deer ------------------------------------------------- Submitted to: Mr. John Lemuel Noche Submitted by: Kim N. Fabia, BSBio3 August 13, 2015 Balabac Mouse Deer April 6, 2008 General Description The small, Balabac mouse deer or Chevrotain does not belong to Family Cervidae, the true deer family, but is a member of the Chevrotain family. Chevrotain is a French word meaning “little goat”. When meat is cooked with “ogsom”, a fruit used to remove the characteristic odor of the mouse deer, the natives found it delicious. Its consumption by the locals caused endangerment to the population. Physical Characteristics Balabac mouse deer are ruminants without horns with small canines oriented sideways. They have horizontally-oriented pupil adapted to night activity. The body is generally covered with brown fur, with blotches of dark-brown and white bands at the throat. The ears stand erect with white undersides. Habitat The above mouse deer was captured near the shore when dogs cornered it. It is however difficult to find during the day. It is known to occur in dense areas of primary as well as secondary forests. At night, they could be detected using a flashlight because their eyes shine brightly. They may also be encountered along roads bound by thick forests. A native recounted that the mouse deer lives in its burrows sometimes protected by pythons which co-inhabit with it. When disturbed, the mouse......
