Act Two: * Michael informs Pam that he and Dwight are leaving, instructing her to make sure everyone finishes their expense reports by the end of the day. * Jim walks over to Oscar’s desk to ask questions regarding the expense reports, which causes Jim to see a paper with “2005 season” on Oscar’s desk. * Oscar explains it is a scoreboard for a paper football game that he and Kevin play when Michael is out of the office or when they are bored. * Jim, Oscar, and Kevin play their paper football game. * Jim asks Oscar and Kevin if they play any other games in the office and Oscar tells him to ask Toby to teach him Dunderball, which Toby and Jim play for an hour. * Michael and Dwight arrive at Michael’s condo, where Michael describes his future plans he has while living in the condo and meet Mr. Bill, the head of the Condo Association, and Carol, Michael’s realtr. * Dwight asks questions about the neighborhood, which prompts Mr. Bill and Carol to describe the “gay friendly neighborhood”. * Michael shows the documentary crew his new condo, and plans on how to furnish his condo, while Dwight points out the many problems of the new condo to Michael. * Jim and Pam bring the Dunder-Mifflin employees into the breakroom to begin the first “Dunder-Mifflin Olympiad”. * Dwight asks Michael about the type of mortgage he will have. * Carol explains it’s a 10 year fixed mortgage over 30 years, which Michael was unaware of, and this makes Michael start to feel uneasy. * Jim and Pam introduce the first event: “Flonkerton” or “Box of Paper Snowshoe Racing” in English, the event where Kevin and Phyllis race each other, which Phyllis wins. * Michael starts to criticize Carol about the condo in order to back out of closing and asks for a price reduction. * Carol informs Michael he will lose seven thousand dollars if he backs out. * Michael and Dwight eat lunch on the floor of Michael’s new condo. * Kevin participates in the next event: seeing how many M&M’s he can stuff into his mouth but because nobody wanted to face him, he wins by default. * Michael offers Dwight to be his roommate in order for Michael to afford his condo. * Dwight asks questions that annoy Michael enough to retract his offer. * Employees gather outside the building’s elevator, taking bets on who will come on the elevator, which Ryan wins. * Oscar and Toby face each other in racing around the office without spilling a cup of coffee and Michael and Dwight return to the office mid-race, causing everyone to return to their desks and get back to work. * Jim walks over to Pam’s desk to ask for a favor: notify everyone of closing ceremonies for the Dunder-Mifflin office Olympics at 5pm. * Jim congratulates Michael on his condo, and asks him to walk out of his office for closing ceremonies. * Michael is awarded a gold medal from Jim for closing on his condo, causing Michael to cry, Dwight is awarded the silver medal from Jim, and Jim awards himself the bronze medal.

QUESTION 1 a) Explain the processes which lead to electrical breakdown of air by the streamer mechanism. Your explanation should include a discussion of the influence of pressure, gap length and electric field uniformity The concept of streamer type of breakdown is based on the Townsend type breakdown, which requires a complete sequence of avalanches [2]. According to Reather, the streamer type of breakdown differs from the latter because it assumes that the growth of a single electron avalanche becomes unstable. The original criterion by Reather only addressed the primary ionization processes, i.e. electron collision. With increased understanding of electron processes the role of attachment became apparent and the criterion was modified to the following equation: oxα-ηdx=18 (1) Simultaneous with Raether’s work, Meek. identified the Streamer mechanism and formulated the following breakdown criterion: According to Meek the instability is caused by the space charge field from the electrons and ions in the head of an avalanche. The breakdown occurs when the space charge field from the avalanche head becomes the same order of size as external applied field .The instability results in the formation of fast moving anode and......

Comprehensive Grammar Answer Form

...writing. In fact, the three universities that I have attended in the past have all required me to use the APA style of writing. As I recall my high school years, the APA style of writing also seemed to be a favorite amongst my high school teachers. They all required that term papers be written in APA style as well. This type of writing actually does not differ much from the ones included in the text reading. The text mentioned the APA style of writing several times. In my opinion, it appears to be the most popular style of writing, especially amongst college students. Based on the results of the quizzes, my grammar skills were actually a little better than average. I actually had expected to do better, but I guess my grammar skills are not as good as I thought they were. In any event I feel very confident when it comes to spelling, as I have always been a great speller. Even in grade school, I was a good speller. I learned at a very young age to challenge myself when it comes to spelling. Challenging my-self in that area really paid off as I became older, as I’ve never had a problem with spelling. However, I feel that I need more help with run on sentences and with thought patterns. Though I proof read my paper several times, it’s hard for me to see that I have several run on sentences until after I get my grade back. In general, I feel that my writing is just mediocre. However, I also believe that when it comes to writing, I am my own worst critic. Reason being,......

How to Write a Good Academic Paper?

...How to Write a Good Academic Paper? That is a question which most students ask and most of them are new to academic writing. Academic writing if taken as a whole, then it would help you figure its significance and what is more important is, it would help you understand the purpose of it. Any good academic writer’s quality is his/her mind is loaded with creative set of ideas that help him navigate through the whole topic of academic paper. Ideas lead you to somewhere and only a few good students are gifted by nature and if you are not then you can also build up a good rhythm of academic writing. Secondly, you should also have a good sense of your audience; you should know what element of your academic writing would entice them and also create some space for your write-up for reading in their schedule. You then research for resources and data that would be of great use to enlighten your readers. Knowing what you audience wants, should be in your priority because readers enjoy what they seek in your writing. Usually what they look out for is something that could either bring them a smile or get them to think over the subject. Having creative ideas doesn’t guarantee a good and well-researched academic writing. You need to able to figure out ways of putting your research in a proper format so that readers don’t feel deviated from the focal point of your write-up.

...Joe Polce English 015 Mrs. Wickman How To Roll Your Own Cigarette Is anyone in your life a cigarette smoker? Do you often notice that they are always complaining about their ever-rising price? According to the U.S Census Bureau, out of the 6.7 billion people in the world, 2 billion are smokers of cigarettes or some other form of tobacco. Almost 75% of these 2 billion spend between $1000 - $1500 yearly on their favorite packs and cartons that they just cannot resist. We know its a habit, right? Its also an expensive habit. I am going to show you a quick and easy way to not only cut the cost of cigarettes in half, but also save you hundred of dollars. A select few smokers of the modern world have been fortunate enough to find the solution to the climbing prices of cigarettes. This solution is actually very simple. Why don’t we, instead of spending the $6 plus on an already produced pack of Marlboro Lights, make and produce our own pack of very similar cigarettes? Herein lies the solution; roll your own cigarettes. Most people shy away from such an idea claiming that they would never know where to start, or have no idea where they would buy the equipment, but on contrary the first steps to this new lifestyle are very easy, and the tools needed are readily available. The benefits of rolling your own cigarettes are numerous. First off, its inexpensive.
