A Person Who Has Had 
 An Impact On Me By
Michael J Sequeira It all began when I was with my girlfriend. We just got back from a date and I was driving her back home. This was one of our first dates together it was just a simple date I took her out to a movie and some dinner. When we got to her house, her parents invited me inside and we started to talk. Edgar, her father, started to talk to me and ask me questions about myself. He asked me questions about my future and where I wanted to go in life. After talking a while, we found out we were very much alike and had similar interest. Ever since that day, I grew very close to him and looked up to him very much.
My relationship with Tayler was very different, strange even. The last thing a teenager would like to do is spend time with his girlfriend's parents, but this was actually pretty great. I loved her family, her mother is amazing. Also when I was with her father, I felt like I was hanging out with an older version of myself. I consider myself someone who is outgoing and funny and loves to have a good time and he is the same way just older. We get along so well that Tayler and I go on double dates with them frequently. We even text every single day to keep in touch with each other. There is always something to talk about with Edgar if he's not sending funny videos to my phone we talk about college or things that are going on at home and with his wife.
I look up to Edgar very much. Whenever I am struggling with anything I know I can come to him and ask for his advice. There is times when he knows I am going through a hard time if it has to do with his daughter or even college he helps me in many ways. He just takes me out to eat or we go to the park by the house to play some basketball to clear my head. It doesn't matter what question I ask him or what advice I need he always has the answer and makes…...

Short Essay on Inerrancy and Inspiration

...and who it was written by. People wonder if we can trust the words of the Bible since God didn’t actually put pen to paper and write the book. The Bible was written by authors who were inspired to write by God. One question that a lot of people ask is how do we know the Bible whether or not the Bible is true and from God. What does it mean to say that the Bible has authority, and from where does the authority of the Bible come from? To put it simply if the Bible is the word of God, then the Bible must be true. So the Bible has authority in all cases because it is the word of God. “For in him all authority is finally located. And he is his own authority for there is nothing outside him on which his authority is founded. Thus, in making his promise to Abraham, he pledged his own name since he had no greater by whom to swear” (Heb. 6:13). There are many different authors and books in the Bible. From the Old Testament to the New Testament there are different stories, lessons, and writing styles that make up the 66 books of the Bible. Sometimes the question of why these books were written may be asked. It is believed that the authors of the Bible were inspired by God to write their testimonies. Biblical inspiration is the belief that God inspired the words of the Bible.2 "All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness." (2 Tim. 3:16) If someone asked me what the definition of inerrancy meant in regards to......

Bio Inspired Neural Networking Among Multi-Robots

...BIO INSPIRED NEURAL NETWORKING AMONG MULTI-ROBOTS CHAPTER 1 INTRODUCTION Transportation is one of the most important economic activities of any country. Among the various forms of transport, road transport is one of the most popular means of transportation. Transportation has an element of danger attached to it in the form of vehicle crashes. Road crashes not only cause death and injury, but they also bring along an immeasurable amount of agony to the people involved. Efforts to improve traffic safety to date have concentrated on the occupant protection, which had improved the vehicle crash worthiness. The other important area where research is currently being done is collision avoidance. Technological innovations have given the traffic engineer an option of improving traffic safety by utilizing the available communication tools and sophisticated instruments. Using sensors and digital maps for increasing traffic safety is in its infancy. Systems are being developed to utilize the available state of the art facilities to reduce or possibly prevent the occurrence of crashes. Total prevention of crashes might not be possible for now, but the reduction of crashes could easily be achieved by using the collision avoidance systems. 1.1 NEED FOR COLLISION AVOIDANCE The development of collision avoidance systems is motivated by their potential for increased vehicle safety. Half of the more than 1.5 million rear-end crashes that occurred in 1994 could have been prevented......

Inspired People

...Me, Mario and our “teachers” How many people in their lives have had someone who inspired them? I think everyone has that kind of person. In the article “Poppa and the Spruce Tree” by Mario Cuomo, the author was inspired by his father. Like Mario, I too was inspired by someone to be better. That person was my best friend. At that time, Mario Cuomo former governor of New York, had a problem with his political campaign. He was discouraged. “I was ready to quit a political campaign I was losing,” he said. He needed support at that moment and suddenly he found it in his father’s desk drawer. He turned up Poppa’s old business cards and it’s helped him to remember very clearly one episode of his life. And his father, Andrea Cuomo, taught him a lesson through it. He remembered every detail of a Spruce Tree story which happened a long time ago in his childhood. They had just moved from their old apartment to Holliswood, New York. They were so lucky because they had property around the house and trees. Especially, Mario remembered one big blue spruce tree. Right after they moved in, it stormed heavily and the beautiful tree fell. The tree crashed down and no one but his father believed that it could grow again. “Shut up, we gonna push’im up, he’s gonna grow again,” he said. Without a doubt they saved that tree, because today you may go there and see a gorgeous gigantic blue spruce tree standing and “pretending” that nothing happened with it in the past.

...The nature versus nurture controversy debate is one of the oldest issues in psychology. The debate centers on extent to which particular aspects of behavior are products of either genetic inheritance or environmental factors characteristics to human development. Nature relates to the way we are born, our genetic endowment and biological capabilities; nurture refers to how we are raised, what we are exposed to, and how we learn.( Mossler, 2013) In order to under the Nature versus nature in my own development we look at my parents. They were children born from farms family’s highest grade level between them was 9th grade, Canadian and Catholic. Growing up in my house when I was a kid the language spoken in the house was French. So naturally I spoke French instead of English. And because that was the language spoken in my environment until I was in preschool where I was taught to speak English. My parents never had anything to do with my education except for they were catholic which means you went catholic school even if you couldn’t afford it. They never went to meet the teacher, parent conference which several was requested by the school because of my dyslexia and learning delay do to my English.

Education Inspired

...Education Inspired Frederick Douglass was an African-American man born into slavery in the year 1817 on the Eastern Shore of Maryland in Talbot County. Enduring the struggles and hardships living as a slave he would eventually escape and become a leader of the abolitionist movement. “Without a struggle The power of an education on reading and writing would soon lead him to a life of freedom. In the 1800’s the Dorchester County Courthouse was a place where slave auctions were held and where I choose to read chapters one and seven from his book, “Narrative Of The Life Of Frederick Douglass, An American Slave.” Knowing of slave auctions that took place here gave me more insight on what I was reading about. While I read the courthouse was very quiet at times and seeing big time lawyers, police officers, and plaintiffs of black and white race walking by, was a very different scenario than it was back then. I could only imagine the chaos that took place here and how horrible it would have been to witness segregation and humans being sold at these slave auctions. As I read, one of the passages that I was very saddened by was how the infants of slaves were separated from their mothers so they would focus on work and only work. Only seeing his mother four or five times in his life he never really knew her as a mother. Never seeing her in daylight she would take a walking journey of twelve miles to where he lived and laid with him till he fell asleep....

...inspiration while writing their works. In fact, I am routinely influenced with divine wisdom every day of my life and cannot imagine life without this guidance. An inspired life such as this leaves the ego outside of the equation for the most part. I believe that allowing yourself to become inspired and then sharing your thoughts, words and actions with others so that you inspire them in some way, is the ultimate fulfillment in this lifetime. We each came here with a gift to share and our responsibility is to uncover it with inspired guidance, allowing inspiration to help it unfold, and then taking inspired action to do it. Inspired living is spirit-driven whereas a usual lifestyle is ego-driven. Perhaps you've been nudged to move forward in a new direction - change your vocation, write a book, take some training, open a new business - but you are hesitating because you doubt you have the time, resources or capabilities to do it, or you're simply in a state of fear about moving in this new direction. You are most likely receiving divine inspiration and if you follow that guidance it will bring you amazing results that will include peacefulness and inner fulfillment. Maybe you've felt guided to help others in some way, to support, love, guide or encourage them on their journey. There is no joy greater than knowing you inspired someone into action. Many leave this planet with their music still inside them, and what a tragedy that is. Maybe all they needed was someone to......

A Soul Inspired by Him

...A SOUL INSPIRED BY HIM We are born to be an instrument of change or an instrument of destruction. Many are born with inherent audacity and many are born with a lack of it. Many possess certain characteristics that are distinct while others don’t have; but I believe that every individual has hidden uniqueness that lies within them. They only need a rope to show in order to outstand. Life was never been a smooth sail and the road is not flat but rough and it is the way of life. Many of us surrendered, but many surpassed due to resiliency. I was once a slave of my past, a void soul. Prisoned by memory which inflicts agony to my entire being. Shattered, and doesn’t know how to pick up the broken pieces of my life. One significant event in a gloomy day, that a bewildered soul is a total mystery. A voice and an obscure image appear with strong conviction, leaving words that were almost a melody to be heard help me change my life and my perspective, an apparition of Him that inspired a void soul, with so much love and compassion. A life is worth living, not a life to sulk over the memories of past. The world is indeed cruel but I learned to see the optimistic side of it. I learned to see the world behind the prison cell I created. I have faith that one day, every rough place will be made plain, and crooked place will be made straight. If we listen and restore faith in Him, no soul is in agony, if we believe in His existence and......

...Christians they recognized that these books contained artificial material and therefore were not inspired of God. These books are also called "pseudepigraphal", meaning "false writings" to designate them as spurious and unauthentic books of the late centuries B. C. and early centuries A. D. These books contain religious folklore and have never been considered inspired of God by biblical Christians from the earliest times of churches ( Some have referred to these books as the missing books of the Bible and conclude they are new discovers which are part of God's revelation. Nothing could be further from the truth. The sixty six books that comprise the Old and Testament are God's revelation to man and when John completed the Book of Revelation, God's word to man was complete. God has not added to his revelation since. Experts feel the content of these unauthentic books shows them to be inspired of man, not God. It is also noteworthy that the Roman Catholic Church which is a false church, with false doctrines accepts these books as scripture. Further, some of the cults including the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and the Mormons also accept them as scripture. No biblical Christians or churches have ever accepted them as such. As seen in the chart below, the books or writings from the Apocrypha that the Roman Catholic Church claims, are “inspired by Tobit, Judith, Wisdom of Solomon, Ecclesiasticus, Baruch, 1 & 2 Maccabees, Letter......

Inspiration of Pablo Picasso's Cubism

... The Inspiration of Pablo Picasso’s Cubism Teneisha Bonner AIU Online Abstract Cubism was the first style of art that took place in the 20th century that was originated by Pablo Picasso and George Braque. Both artists created a way to make drawings and models that would enhance the design of art all around the world.

Music Music was one of the elements that were inspired by Pablo Picasso’s art. In 1921, the “Three Musicians” was developed by Pablo Picasso as a good bye piece to the artificial cubism. Musical devices were frequently seen in Cubism artistry of this period.

Short Essay on Inerrancy and Ispiration

...Jesus; it is not Jesus who speaks on His own initiative (John 14:10), the words are given to Jesus by God (John 17:8). Many times in the Old Testament, the prophets would say, “this is what the Lord says,” giving proof that the words of Scripture are not mans but God’s, inspired by the Holy Spirit. Not only is the Bible authoritative but also inspirational. The Bible has been inspired by the Holy Spirit. Bible inspiration is as follows, inspiration is a supernatural influence of the Holy Spirit upon divinely chosen agents in consequence of which their writings become trustworthy and authoritative. Not only has God given authority to the Bible but is also inspired by God through the Holy Spirit. The men who wrote the Bible might have used their own personalities, but the message has been divinely inspired upon them through the work of the Holy Spirit, which is where we get Plenary and Verbal Inspiration. Not only is the whole entirety of the Bible inspired, but even down to the very words are inspired by God as well. “All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for correction, and for training in righteousness” (2 Timothy 3:16 ESV). Breathed out is the same as inspired, God breathed and Adam had life (Genesis 2:7). “It is the spirit in man, the breath of the Almighty, that makes him understand” (Job 32:7 ESV) another example of the breath of God that inspires and brings understanding. Paul quotes Hebrew writing as the “word of God”......
