"Fear is a tyrant and a despot, more terrible than the rack, more potent than the snake".(Edgar Wallace) The quote means that fear can rule your life, they can be very dangerous if you let them take over. Phobias can control a person’s life. They can cause a person to act in an undesirable fashion and do undesirable deeds. The word phobia comes from the Greek word Phobos meaning fear. A Phobia is a continuous, excessive fear response to objects or situations that are for most people are scary or mildly scary. Phobias can be life controlling. They are controlling because phobias usually involve common life situations. “If the feared situation is frequently encountered, can greatly interfere in the general conduct of life...”(Friedman 157) “Even though phobias can be overcome, while a person has one they live to avoid it. Most people let the phobia terrorize their lives while they try to avoid it, Instead of just getting help to get past it.”(Denny 125) Even though that is easier said than done it is possible to overcome a phobia with time. Phobias are terrible life mental fears that if not taken care of can control your life. Phobias are mental disorders that can cause a person to have problems with themselves. “I thought about just running out of the cell and just jumping over the balcony ahead. Six floors up and hard rock below-three or four seconds and it will all be over.”(Smith 110) This quote describes how a phobia can make you want to harm yourself. The fear of Alex who is a boy that went to jail made him think of jumping off the ledge and trying to kill himself. People will go to great lengths to avoid their phobia. Most people with phobias will go to greater lengths to avoid Wilson 2
their phobia than to cure it. If a phobia goes on without being checked than it will progressively get worse. There are few cases where there the person with the phobia will attempt to get help. But other than that...

In the novel, Lord of The Flies, author William Golding explores human behavior in it purest, neat form. From stranding a group of boys on an island to forming a imaginary, inner " beast", Golding experiments with the act of life outside society's limitations. Throughout this journey, Golding unveils the real truths about the boys they inherent savagery and craziness, linking to several biblical stories. In Lord of The Flies, author William Golding links religious allegory from three biblical stories The Story of Adam and Eve, of Cain and Able, and of Jesus Christ.
Golding expresses that the boys throughout the novel stems from a larger, more threatening evil within them. The story that brings to mind the story of Cain and Able. Due to his character and view, Ralph beats Jack in the race for chief. Jack's boiling "mortification" (22) seen earlier in the book, is eventually released in a full-on attempt to kill Ralph in the book it says, "He ran forward, stooping. 'I'm chief.' Viciously, with full intention, he hurled his spear at Ralph" (180). In this sense, what was a petty jealousy has now become an act for murder. Furthermore, this attempted murder is done after Jack assumes the position of chief, showing that his stems from a personal anger towards Ralph to something more brutal. In the same way, Cain kills his brother Able out of a characteristic feeling and...

April 2nd, 2112… This is a time when slavery was reborn and for any colored person were to be
treated ugly and to be separated from the others.
ay 19th, 2112… “Today is good day” said Dallas. “I know huh, but only if we had
more people to celebrate my birthday party” replied Jermaine. As Jermaine is cutting the cake
and getting the ice cream, there is a huge disruption outside of Jermaine’s house. Jermaine
thought that it was the end of the world but it was white officers who demanded Jermaine and
Dallas to come outside. Jermaine wasn’t going to leave his home so he completely ignored what
the officer said and was arrested. The officer then started to get aggressive with Jermaine.
Jermaine was restrained by the officer but then gave up and was put in the officers vehicle.
But later as Jermaine and Dallas were being driven to some place, the officer then
explained why they were being held captive. “The reason why you two are being taken in is
because there is a war between species meaning extraterrestrial beings are going to try and take
over the planet and humans cannot allow this to happen”.
As the long drive continues they talk about why the aliens wanted to take over planet
earth.The reason why the aliens wanted to take over earth was because their home planet was ...
...Philosophy Of Education
What is the goal or the purpose of education? What is education for?
My definition of education would be to learn or to gain knowledge of something
through the teaching of others or through ones self. One of the definitions from
the Webster's dictionary states that education is the activities of educating or
instructing or teaching, activities that impart knowledge or skill. Both
definitions of education appeal me the most important two words that deals with education are teach and learn. My first introduction here will be about the teaching process of education. Why do we teach? By definition Teachers are leaders, and simply put: leaders lead.
Teachers lead their students through and to the path of knowledge. According to the Foundation Of Education text "Teachers also demonstrate leadership by working with others and modeling desirable behaviors." Teachers are paid to teach and that is a fact, but in most instances, teachers goal is to educate students for better, highly recognized and progressive professions that will and in many instances, pay the students more than what the teachers themselves are being paid for teaching them.
Why do we learn? We learn to gain knowledge, to comprehension, or mastery of something through experience or study. Basically we become students to learn, and become more educated so we can better ourselves and others. Students are educated to whatever level of knowledge they have in that...
Social Problems: Spring 2014
Due Date: See course schedule
Fill out the following form (see page 2) completely and turn in on or before the due date. Be as clear as possible: the primary purpose of this exercise is to make sure that you have a workable topic; I will not approve topics that I think are too broad, too narrow, are not sociological in focus, don’t address the assignment, etc. In other words, I’m trying to help you succeed on this project. In order to help you succeed, I need to know what you’re thinking
You may email this form.
I will keep this sheet, and will email you with comments and suggestions. If I approve your topic, the email will say “topic approved” (you should still read the email because I may have comments even with approval). If your email does not contain the words “topic approved,” then you should re-think your idea, using my comments, and resubmit (via email is fine unless you completely change topics).
It would be best if you do this as soon as possible – the sooner you get this approved, the more time you have to write. If you wait until the due date, for example, and then need to work on your topic, and don’t get back to me quickly, you might end up not having much time to write at all.
So, to be clear:
1. Research projects will not be accepted unless topics have been approved.
2. Your topic is not approved unless you get an email stating clearly that it has been approved.
3. If you don’t receive...
At the end of this topic you will be able to;
describe, by drawing a graph, the effect of a capacitor on the output waveform from a rectifier;
know that the size of the ripple voltage is dependent on the method of rectification, the values of capacitance and load resistance;
describe, by drawing graphs, the effect of loading on the output waveform of a smoothed rectifier.
In our work on power supplies so far we have determined how to calculate the peak value of the output voltage from an rms value, and how to use half-wave and full-wave rectification methods to change a.c. into variable value d.c. The next stage is to smooth out the pulses of variable d.c. into a more regular output that might be suitable for use in electronic circuits.
The component needed to assist us with this stage of the process is the capacitor. You should remember that from Topic 2.2.1. the capacitor is a device that can store electrical charge. The addition of a capacitor to our rectifier circuits considerably alters the output observed on an oscilloscope as discussed in the following sections. The capacitor used in these applications is usually an electrolytic type with a very large capacitance value, typically ≥1000μF.
We will first look at the case of the half-wave rectified circuit, initially with no load resistor attached. For simplicity, the transformer has been replaced with a low voltage a.c. source.
