A newly graduate high school student nowadays wonders what appropriate course to take. Some take up courses that their parents want them to take while others choose what their friends choose too. Before I took up Bachelor of Science in Medical Technology at University of La Salette, my primary reason was that I wanted to be a doctor and they say Medical Technology is the best pre-med course. However, as months passed by, I started to realize that it was a best choice to take medical technology because the modernized medical technology can give me the power to be able to answer some questions such as how it is possible to treat and look after an unconscious patient with simply knowing what is going on inside his/her body without any surgery which can make a very big difference to any surgical treatments. Imagining my life as a Medical Technologist few years from now gives me an unexplainable excitement to know how it became too possible that even one of the world’s most powerful explosives can eventually be used to treat heart conditions and also how one of the most dangerous poisons could save people’s lives. Through the technology now used by Medical Technologists, I will be able to understand those kinds of unbelievable instance clearly. If I become Medical Technologist, my work-related learning is much more than the job opportunity. I also believe that it is the most accurate opportunity that involves knowledge and skills in pursuing my future in the broad range occupational areas that are available. I am also planning to proceed as a surgeon specializing on either cardiology or neurology. But on instances, I also want to become a Pathologist which made the Medical Technology become the most appropriate and suited course that I need to take.
In my beginning as a student taking up Medical Technology at University of La Salette, I…...

...Oliver Stone’s USA Wesley Kostovetsky 3070 Spring The History Behind Oliver Stone’s Success Oliver Stone is called by many a historian. Some call him a cinematic historian. Others call him a type of public historian. Oliver Stone likes to refer to himself strictly as a dramatist and in some cases a docu-dramatist. Whatever title chosen there is no doubt he has a made a huge impact through his films; though some may argue in a negative way. Oliver Stone has written and/or directed films about the Vietnam War, Kennedy’s assassination, Nixon’s presidency, Wall Street, the military dictatorship in El Salvador, and many other subjects. Stone’s expertise in film lay in what most “Hollywood executives prefer to avoid. Historical and political cinema is supposedly deadly at the box office.” Stone’s films are known to make audiences “uncomfortable” and cause “controversy”. Through four essays, including one written by Oliver Stone himself explains the reason why his films have made huge impacts and controversies; as well as, the differences between written history and history on film, and the life experiences leading to the creation of some his films and his connection to them. Since the beginning of his career Stone has been “viciously attacked” by critics about his films. The main argument by critics of history films is that they are too fictional for a number of reasons. Though containing “numerous authentic elements” and details the invention of scenes, dialogue,......

Dream Act

...The failure of the DREAM Act, a bill that would have put a number of illegal immigrants who arrived in this country before they were 16 on a path to citizenship, marks the loss of a decade long fight on a much needed overhaul of immigration reform. The DREAM Act was written to benefit people who have established an American cultural upbringing, those pursuing an education or serving our country through military service. Many opposed to immigration reform argue that immigrants burden the economy and take jobs away from native citizens. Mayor Michael Bloomberg, reiterated the need for immigration reform, which he says ‘is the single biggest step we can take’ to promote innovation and economic growth. “The biggest single step we can take to promote innovation in New York City, and across this country, is to fix our broken immigration system,” Bloomberg said. “It’s not only hurting national security, it’s the most ruinous economic policy you could ever conceive of. It’s destroying American jobs every single day. We’ve got to change it.” U.S. Data indicate that minorities and immigrants start businesses at a much higher rate than members of the native population. According to a 2008 study by the United States Small Business Administration, immigrants are 30 percent more likely to start a business then non-immigrants. Our nation has a long history of the positive impact immigrants have on our economy. By starting businesses immigrants help create jobs and employment...

Now where he is a witness to the bullying of Paul Fry, his old inner demons are coming up again.

Sticks and Stones

...Sticks and Stones by Trezza Azzopardi He races to the top of the dune and looks down onto the strand. There is water and wet sand and dry sand and small pokes of sharp grass dotted along the beach. He stands on the lip of the concrete defence; looks east, to the line of groynes, then west, to the lighthouse in the distance. There's no one he can see, no one he can call to for help. Below him, the drop onto the beach is fifteen, maybe twenty, feet. He jumps because he has to, jumps out into the air, and sees as he falls one more thing; a cloud of white birds hanging on the skyline. There is a hot taste filling his mouth, like molten iron, and a black pain, and the knowledge that his teeth are through his lip. It's always this same dream that Lewis has, and he does the same thing when he wakes; he reaches up to feel the place where his bottom lip was opened, running a finger over his chin. He has a scar there still, almost imperceptible to the casual eye, like a ghost mouth that never opens, like a horizon. It has been fifteen years since he jumped and fell, and he has never been back to the beach. He has spent his adult life in the heart of England, at the very core of the city, as if putting himself in the dense centre of a world would protect him from another fall off the edge of it. But now he has returned to his mother's house, and the dream is more vivid here, in colour, with sound effects and rising panic, as if it too has finally come home. “There's a letter for you”...

The American Dream

...The American dream After a brutal war in 1776, 13 American colonies created the Declaration of Independence. Thomas Jefferson and Abraham Lincoln have developed ideological aspects, which constitute the phrase of the American dream: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness”. The following text will analyses and explain the American dream. The interpretation of the American dream. Text 2 Arnold Schwarzenegger is an immigrant from Austria. When he came to America, from his difficult life in Austria, he then soon began a carrier as an actor. One may state that he had fulfilled American dream, but he did not stop there. He became the governor of California. “I have succeeded beyond my wildest imagination”, Arnold Schwarzenegger wrote. His text is very positive and optimistic. He pursued his happiness and realized his American dream. He always remembers his challenging past and is forever grateful for his present and the future. Arnold Schwarzenegger explains how appreciative he is to be able to join a nation, which helped him succeed his American dream: “To truly succeed as an American citizen, you have to do more”. Everyone has to participate in establishing a nation where you as a citizen are obligated and given the opportunity to pursuit the happiness, freedom, liberty and equality. Anya Kamenetz......

Jovanovi´ , M. K. Stojˇ ev c c Abstract: This paper describes the architecture and performance of a high-resolution time–to– digital converter (TDC) based on a Vernier delay line. The TDC is used as a basic building block for time interval measurement in an ultrasonic liquid flowmeter. Operation of the TDC with 10ps LSB resolution and 1 ms input range has been simulated using library models for 1.2 µ m double–metal double–poly CMOS technology. The TDC operates at clock frequency of 200 MHz, and is composed of 500 delay–latch elements. The difference in delay between two chains, one for the start and the other for stop pulse, is controlled by the delay locked loop (DLL). Keywords: Time to digital conversion, Vernier delay line, DLL. 1 Introduction The precise measurement of the time interval between two events with very fine timing resolution is common challenge in the test and measurement instrumentation (logic analyzer, ATE system, nuclear instrumentation), industrial control (multichannel DAS, ultrasonic liquid flowmeters), electronic embedded control system (automotive controllers, medical devices avionics), etc. [1,2,3]. A time–to–digital converter (TDC) is one of the crucial building blocks installed into this type of equipment. High–resolution TDC is primarily used in......

Stepping Stone or Building Block

...There is uninformed judgment whether regional trade arrangements help or hinder multilateral liberalization. It depends on certain circumstances. Since regional trade liberalization is both discrimination and liberalization, its implications are profoundly ambiguous. Liberalizing on a regional basis means liberalizing on a discriminatory basis. Therein lays the two-sided nature of regionalism. The “liberalization” part in “discriminatory liberalization” is generally good since it removes artificial barriers between domestic and some foreign producers. The “discrimination” part, by contrast, is generally bad since it creates new barriers between various foreign producers. Plainly then, one cannot know whether regionalism helps or hinders multilateralism based on pure logic. This brings us to the state of the debate. The key risks of regionalism is that regional liberalization is a substitute for multilateral liberation and regionalism shifts power in worrying directions specifically it fosters greater dominance of small nations by hegemonic powers, and it increases the chances of inter-bloc trade war. The regionalism-is-a stumbling- bloc school focuses on the discrimination. The regionalism-is-a-building bloc school focuses on the liberalization. Reciprocal liberalization of most kinds tends to strengthen pro-trade political economy forces while at the same time weakening the anti-trade political economy forces, and this within each of the participating nations.

I thought that there were only the white people, who are originally from Europe. I myself am really interested in knowing things related to the native people, who are used to live here before. Fortunately, I had a great opportunity to visit Writing-on-Stone Park in a field trip with my exchange student peers. It is one of the most interesting places, where it is historically related to the First Nation People. Therefore, I would like to write this essay paper about the Writing-on-Stone Park. Became a provincial park in January 1957, Writing-on-Stone Park is set in Southern Alberta and extremely rich in histories, stories and dreams. (Barry, 2011) It contains one of the most important collections of ancient rock art found anywhere in North America. It is a sacred landscape to First Nation. Some part of this is located near the Milk River where there is some evidence that native people were inhabited here long time ago. Once getting through in the park, it is clearly seen that there are many figured stones surrounded the park. In addition to recreation during the nice weather, it is the place where the histories of First Nation tribes can be told. For example, some......

California's Dream

...California Dreaming: The California DREAM Act As young adults it is very common amongst illegal immigrants receiving an education in California to try to balance a job while paying for school tuition and dealing with everything else that comes along in life. There are many students in California who struggle with continuing to further their education especially after high school. The California Dream Act is a set of laws initially proposed in 2006 that gives students with a good standing educational background a chance to apply for full financial assistance to both public and private California colleges and Universities. The acronym DREAM stands for Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors and in the most basic sense, it sets out to help students who lack proper visas or immigration documentation and gives them an opportunity for an easier path towards attaining a higher education. Given an opportunity through the California DREAM Act, young undocumented immigrants are able to receive similar financial assistance to those who are documented student citizens. With the cost of attendance rising, it is difficult to go through college with out financial help. The DREAM Act does not only provide financial assistance, but it also paves a better and brighter path to become a documented citizen. If a youth was brought to California under the age of 16 and they attend college or join the military they are able to gain legal documentation. As of October 2011, when this act...

She kept shifting through every set, she was confused because every time she woke up, Kathleen wasn’t sure who she was, or which version of herself she woke up into. Dreams are real,we have times of deja vu’s when we walk or talk to someone during our daily life, we know that we have seen certain things somewhere but we don’t recall where, maybe we saw that in another dimension but don’t fully understand because we believe it’s all a dream. In a personal experience, there was this time in which i was walking in the beach, i picked up a shell but it seemed so familiar as if i had previously picked it up. It’s weird having those kinds of experiences because it confused our brain and deceives us to believe it was a dream. Dreams can be real experiences, let’s use the space vs earth analogy.

When a person understands and has a solid idea about what he or she will get in to, that person will never be failed. Steppingstones to Success “Thomas Edison dreamed of a lamp that could be operated by electricity, began where he stood to put his dream into action, and despite more than ten thousands failures, he stood by that dream until he made it a physical reality. Practical dreamers do not quit. “ (Napoleon Hill, Quotes about Achieving Your Goals) People who wanted to be successful in their lives must have goals. Goals can be person’s aims, ambitions, purposes, and targets. Specific goals can take a person a long way.
