Burning the World’s Oil Auxelerating super cars filled with excitement and unpredictability or boring fuel efficient mini cars that have nothing going for them. That’s the question you need to ask if you are thinking about going green or not. Prices of environmental factors are some reason to go green. But is speed and adrenaline really worth hurting the environment over “Dan Neil the author of the article the Rapture of the Hypercar tends to think so.” Super cars are the expensive and bad for the environment. They get bad gas mileage they are loud and dramatically over priced. Who would want to spend that much money on a vehicle which main purpose is to get you from place to place safely and as green as possible. If we need a car shouldn’t we be looking for the cheapest and most fuel efficient car as possible? Believe it or not but some people would like to go faster than 40mph. Super cars offer excitement and a break away from the real world which is harsh. As for pollution yeah it may not be the best thing for the environment but neither are a lot of the things we do like breathing. Breathing releases Co2 which is bad for the atmosphere. Gasoline has so much energy per gallon that even our most advanced lithium batteries would have to be huge around 40 pounds and would have to charge for ever to be able to produce the amount of energy that a single gallon of gas does. That is why gasoline even though bad is the best thing right now for motorized transportation it sounds cool and goes a lot faster than a electric thing that you plug into the…...

...1/5/12 What going back to college means to me and my family? Going back to college to me means represents possibilities; Possibilities of the unknown; Possibilities of a great future. The possibilities are endless for those who wish to pursue a degree. When I first started going back to school after graduating high school, I thought I had it all figured out in what I wanted to be when I grew up. I learned after taking a lot of classes that the path I was going down was not for me. It took me several programs to figure out that I wanted to get my degree in Business Administration/Management. I feel that earning this degree will fulfill my professional goals. It will give me many opportunities to do many different things. For instance, I can be a Human Resource Representative, Manager, President of a company or even a business owner. It is a degree that will help me to become more financially stable so I can take care of a family when that time comes. Right now, it is just me in my household. As I grow in my current career and grow in my educational goals, I know this will change. There will be a time in my life where I will have a family. When I have this, I want my family to know that I have worked hard to get where I am at. I want my family to know that what I do in life is for them and that it will benefit them in their futures. At this moment in my life, the main person in my family who I am doing this for is my mom. My mom went to college only for one year......

...Why college education is important to me Kimberly Morgan April 18, 2013 Ashworth College The value of a college education can be taken in all different kinds of aspects. I can lose all my fame and fortune but if I have a college education, it remains the same. In my prospective, a college education has to be valued. So many ask why education is so important. AdultLearn.com states that "In a technological society where jobs and careers are attached to pieces of paper distributed to deserving people by college administrators, that question seems like a no-brainer.” (AdultLearn.com, 2013) College is a goal of mine that I am going to achieve. When attending college you have to truly be a levelheaded person and stay on track to get good grades. Education is the most important asset that you can have or achieve. Being that college has its many expenses, I look at it as if I am buying a house. You have to be positive when looking at what all you have to put in when attending school. Getting a college degree takes a lot of hard work and many long hours. Going to school is not as easy as it seems. Putting a value on your college education means good study habits. That is only one of the factors of valuing your education. Higher education is essential today and to the future students of all ages. Education is very important in order to help level the playing field so individuals will have more opportunities in life. I believe that education helps to break down barriers......

...and far between, complicating efforts to control both cost (what institutions spend) and price (what colleges charge students). And that makes the initiative launched by Virginia's Joint Legislative Audit and Review Commission, an oversight agency that evaluates other state agencies and programs, interesting. Over the next two years, the commission, at the request of state lawmakers, plans to analyze in depth how expenses at the state's public universities have changed over the past few decades, an endeavor that could result in new ways to control costs and prices, both in the state and nationwide. And the commission's first report, released this month, hints at one area that will be explored in depth in subsequent reports -- auxiliary services, including housing, dining and intercollegiate athletics. “During the last decade, total spending per student (accounting for inflation) increased about 2 percent at Virginia’s six research institutions, and about 11 percent at Virginia’s other nine institutions,” the report states. “Spending on auxiliary enterprises funded by students was the largest driver of these spending increases. Auxiliary enterprise spending per student, after inflation, increased $821 at Virginia’s six research institutions and $906 at the other nine non-research institutions.” That finding has the potential to play into an oft-repeated narrative about colleges spending their money on nonessential facilities and services -- climbing walls, lazy rivers and......

This would cause low order bits to be incorrect. This could quickly lead to larger errors in calculations When and how it was discovered: This flaw was discovered in 1994. Apparently Intel engineers found it but decided to keep it quiet until a professor, Dr. Thomas Nicely, discovered it and made it well known to the world, after not receiving a response from Intel on the matter. Intel’s response to the flaw: This incident actually helped make Intel a commonly unknown computer supplier to a household name. They responded with the Intel inside campaign, and becoming more user friendly in their business practices. They fixed the flaw in the microprocessors to come. Did Intel handle the problem correctly?: I feel that this was actually good for Intel. It helped them to become a well-known computer supplier and put them in gear to head in the right direction. They are a very successful company as of today even with the flaw. What did Intel do to satisfy customers?: Intel launched the Intel Inside Campaign as well as to create awareness to avoid a lasting negative impression to customers. What would happen if the same type of flaw happened today?: If the same thing were to happen today, I’m not completely sure that it would make it out into computers. With the......

...Why College: Why college, why go to college? I feel that is one of the most asked question amongst college students, whether it’s talking about, why they choose the college they choose, or why go all together, it’s asked. I for one ask myself that sometimes throughout the school year; it’s almost a reminder of why I am in enrolled in college today. I’m attending St Cloud State University as a freshman to get my masters in Elementary Education to become a first grade teacher. I chose this school because I knew someone who went into the education program and didn’t have a bad thing to say about it. In order for me to achieve the goal of becoming a teacher I have to go to four year college. Without any type of degree the most I could become would be working at daycare/preschool making on average of eight dollars an hour which would have me fall along the lines of US Census Bureau stating that if you have an high school diploma on average you will make $1,936 per month verse if you attend college an receive your bachelor’s degree you can make an average of $3,804 per month. With teaching your overall salary depends on your degree and how many years you have been teaching. If I just get my bachelor’s degree and I’m in the first step I can make on average $47,379 a year and if I get my master I can make on average of $50,076 per year. With that if I continue to get my Ph.D or Ed.D I can receive an extra $2,000 dollars to yearly salary. Along with the salary increasing over the......

...College “college” what easily come up to your mind when we hear this word there are so many neither things nor questions coming up to my mind. Questions that I do want to know the answers. When I reached one of the best things in my life being a teenager, I saw the best things in my life being a teenager, I saw that everything has changed. All are interesting and exciting to explore. There are several stages in tertiary level, first year or what we called freshmen, second year/sophomore third year/junior and the last one, fourth year or being a senior. I experience being a first year student and it was amazing, this time I am out the stage of second year level.

For an unexpected reason, you develop the strong love and bonding to each other, treating everyone as your one sister or your own brother.

... The Cost of College In today’s society college education is needed to achieve a successful career. Jobs have become increasingly difficult to get without a college degree. I think that college education is getting costly especially in today’s economy. Although, I believe that people should go to college and comprehend the importance of higher learning, and to have access to higher social and economic class. “Therefore, one issue that most of college students face when getting a college education are tuitions bill and years of debt. As a consequence a higher percentage of dropout students that is increasing date to date.” (Eduardo Porter) After I graduate high school I had struggled for money to pay for college which I think it is very hard once you are used to free education all your life. Thereof, paying so much money for a higher education is bringing the number down of students who are earning a degree, and is declining over the years. I believe that it is much easier for `students who come from an wealthy family that have opportunity to enroll in college right out of high school because they can afford it. However for students in a lower income family like me tuition rates make that near impossible. I believe that if high schools refocus on training students for jobs that lead directly to apprenticeships it could lead the student to a well-paying employment that increase income to be able to afford college cost . I have been......

...A college education opens doors for many opportunities for those who pursue one. Obtaining a college education is not an easy feat, especially if it is postponed until after you have a spouse, children and a full time job. We as parents need to realize the positive influence we can have on our children’s future plans and pursuits. Most parents want the best for their children; they want to see them succeed in life. One way to help ensure their success is by influencing their decision to pursue a college education when there is less distractions in their life, which is right after high school. If our children choose not to attend college after high school, life might become so occupied with other things it may postpone or prevent our children from obtaining a college degree. Speaking as a parent who first entered the work force and started a family, I understand how difficult it is attending college in the midst of raising a family. The stress is real, and the pressure is felt by all, when a working mother or father begins to obtain a college education. Granted, there are benefits to taking a year off after high school in order to regroup and relax, but the risk of not returning is highly possibly. Attending college right out of high school is the preferable option, and we as parents should encourage our children to make this most sensible choice. College conversations with our children should start early. Many parents begin to discuss college with their......

...Orientation 1101 6/16/15 Journal Entry College is going to be a big step for me coming from a small town. It has been my dream to come to Rend Lake College and pursue a degree in business. Although I struggle a little bit with my comprehension problem, I attend to have a fresh start here at Rend Lake. I decided to attend college because I think it is very important to further my education after High School. It is the next chapter that I am choosing to start in my life. I feel that while attending college I can learn more and grow as a student. My parents are both college graduates so therefore I feel as if it is expected of me to attend college and get a degree. It is known that by attending college students solve problems and handle decisions properly. Sometimes people may think that a High School education is enough for them, it is not for me. It is very important for me to strive to get the highest education I can possibly get. With a high education there is a very good possibility in getting jobs where you receive higher pay and I will be less likely to face unemployment. I am more likely to have more career choices and will probably be able to change careers more easily than those who have not completed some form of higher education. I feel like after college the education I will receive will prepare me mentally and physically for the real world. My goal as of now is to attend college at Rend Lake for two years and receive my business degree. I then......

Eighteen year olds need to be given more independence and freedom and most eighteen year olds live under their parent’s roof so they cannot really do much or say much without getting in trouble. In Texas, if a person is eighteen the person is allowed to drink at dinner if they are accompanied with their parent(s). Sometimes Texas does not suck.
