...The coldest, windiest, and driest continent, Antarctica contains 90 percent of all of the ice on the planet in an area just under one and a half times the size of the United States. Let's take a look at one of the world's most desolate regions. Lying in the Antarctic Circle that rings the southern part of the globe, Antarctica is the fifth largest continent. Its size varies through the seasons, as expanding sea ice along the coast nearly doubles its size in the winter. Most of Antarctica is covered with ice; less than half a percent of the vast wilderness is ice free. The continent is divided into two regions, known as East and West Antarctica. East Antarctica makes up two thirds of the continent, and is about the size of Australia. Ice in this part of the continent averages 1.2 miles (2 kilometers) thick. West Antarctica, on the other hand, is a series of frozen islands stretching toward the southern tip of South America, an extension of the Andes Mountains prominent on the warmer continent. The two regions are separated by the Transantarctic Mountains, a range that stretches across the entire continent, although sometimes covered by ice. The ice of Antarctica is not a smooth sheet but a continuously changing expanse. Glaciers inch across the continent, cracking and breaking the ice. Crevasse fields with cracks hundreds of feet deep span the continent, hidden by only a shallow layer of snow. Icebergs fall along the coast, where shelves and glaciers break off into the sea.......

...World economic trends * There are three reasons why economic growth has been a driving force in the expansion of the international economy and the growth of global marketing. * First, growth has created market opportunities that provide a major incentive for companies to expand globally. * At the same time, slow growth in a company’s domestic market can signal the need to look abroad for opportunities in nations or regions with high rates of growth. * Secondly, economic growth has reduced resistance that might otherwise have developed in response to the entry of foreign firms into domestic economies. * When a country is growing rapidly, policy makers are likely to look favorably on outsides. * A growing country means growing markets; there is often plenty of opportunity for everyone. * Without economic growth, global enterprises may take business away from domestic ones. * Domestic businesses are more likely to seek governmental intervention to protect their local position if markets are not growing. Leverage * A global company possesses the unique opportunity to develop leverage. * Leverage is simply some type of advantage that a company enjoys by virtue of the fact that it conducts business in more in more than one country. * Four important types of leverage are experience transfers, scale economies, resource utilization, and global strategy.

A Book That Change My Life

...A Book That Changed My Life We have to admit that some great books have the power to heal our souls and make us better people. Around The World in Eighty Days is just such a book to me. This book is a fiction story written by a French writer, Jules Verne. In this story, an Englishman, Phileas Fogg and his new French valet Passepartout attempt to travel around the world within eighty days just because he had a huge wager with his friends at the club. Mr Fogg wants to prove his contention that one can travel around the world in only eighty days. During their journey around the world, they met many friends and faced tons of challenges and difficulties. Besides the interesting and vivid plot of the story, this inspiring book has taught me three things when facing difficulties in life: never give up, caring others, and do something meaningful in life. First of all, of the many things that I learned from this book, one of them is overcoming difficulties. Traveling around the world in eighty days is a daydream for many persons but Mr Fogg made it successfully because he insisted and did not give up. Even though this book is a fiction, from the author’s perspective, the tools that we need for success is perseverance. Throughout the whole book, I learned that there are many difficult problems we need to be confronted with in our real life. But if you try hard to conquer it and you may find a way to be success. Therefore by the end of the book I decided to study a very tough course...

The book was published last October 2, 2012 and garnered distinguished awards namely #1 New York Times Bestseller, #1 Indie Bestseller, #1 USA Today Bestseller and #1 Wall Street Journal Bestseller. The novel continues where the Son of Neptune left off. The story is an unforgettable journey from across United States and Mediterranean Sea to Rome, where unexpected dangers, unbelievable discoveries and baffling problems await. Climb aboard the Argo II if you dare to unravel the great mystery of a thousand year old dispute between Greeks and Romans. The author realized how many Greek and Roman Myths he had left untouched in the first series, Percy Jackson and the Olympians. He began to write the second series entitled Heroes of Olympus to compensate the demands of his avid fans. He used his experiences for his storyline from Warcraft and Scion that he and his children had played. After creating the storyline, Riordan created new characters such as Jason, Piper, Leo, Hazel and Frank. Fortunately, the old characters such as Percy and Annabeth are still part of the main protagonists in the new story. Unlike the first series which uses first-person narration of Percy’s point of view, the second series is told in third-person and narrated by different demigods in every book. Moreover, the first series’ genre covers only Greek Mythology but the second series have the combination......

Allegiant: My Favorite Book

...“The fire, the fire. It rages within, a campfire and then an inferno, and my body is its fuel. I feel it racing through me, eating away at the weight. There is nothing that can kill me now; I am powerful and invincible and eternal.” –Beatrice ‘Tris’ Prior Reading dystopian novels always keeps me on the edge of my seat. The idea of a declining society led by an oppressive government can be devastating, but the way it is depicted in young adult books of today makes the topic quite stimulating and intriguing. For some odd reason, instead of straying from such stories, I become emotionally attached to them. Veronica Roth, through the Divergent series, did that same kind of magic to me. I do not know how it happened. It just HAPPENED. The Divergent series follows the story of Beatrice ‘Tris’ Prior as she struggles to make difficult choices about love, family, and sacrifice. The faction-based world she lives in turns out to be a lot different from what she has always known and she is determined to unravel the intricacies of life and fully embrace her Divergence. I may be alone in this, but Allegiant, the third and final book of the trilogy, is my favorite of the pack. It is filled with a lot of thrilling twists, unexpected revelations, and meaningful lessons that got me holding my breath up to the last page. In the first two books, I have seen a lot of Tris’ hasty and self-destructive decisions which caused her so much trouble (Like when she took it upon herself...

...Racing down the hallway with a plastic sword in my hand and a cover hanging off of my back I shouted “All for one, and one for all!”, a motto used by the adventurous antagonist trio in my favorite book of all time, The Three Musketeers. As a child, I've always enjoyed reading classical books such as, Huckberry fin and Swiss family Robison. However, none of these classics seemed to top The Three Musketeers. I fell for the story and the writing in a big way. This book is just full of adventure which was perfect for an imaginative kid like me. The amount of adventure and thrill this book provided really blew my mind. I wasn't much of a reader as a kid, finisihing about half the books I started, but this book caught my eyes. I dare you to take the time to read this outstanding book if you haven't already had the privilege, from the moment that you begin reading the first page you will be propelled into a world of action, quests, love, and brotherhood. In the beginning of the story D'Artagnan is introduced to the three musketeers when he incidentally insulting all of them. They each challenge him to a duel because of this, but while he is dueling with one of the musketeers, the cardinal's guards threatens to arrest them because there is a law in which says there is no dueling. D'Artagnan and the musketeers then join forces and drive the guards away. D’Artagnan then becomes friends with the other two musketeers. I always found this a interesting way to start off the story......

Our space program is a waste of money. The thesis of this paper is the difficulty of solving our environmental problems. Solving our environmental problems is more difficult than many environmentalists believe. A thesis is not a statement of absolute fact. A thesis makes a judgment or interprets. There's no way to write an entire paper supporting a statement that needs no support. NOT A THESIS Jane Austen is the author of Pride and Prejudice. In 1970, Ohio had a population of 10,652,017. Suicide is the deliberate taking of one's own life. President Lincoln's first name was Abraham. Not a Title A title can often give the reader some notion of what the thesis is going to be, but it is not the thesis itself. The thesis itself, as presented in the thesis statement, does not suggest the main idea-it is the main idea. Remember, too, that a thesis statement will always be a complex sentence; there is no other way to make a statement.

...Sprint Planning Optimization in Agile Data Warehouse Design Matteo Golfarelli, Stefano Rizzi, and Elisa Turricchia DEIS - Univ. of Bologna, V.le Risorgimento 2, 40136 Bologna, Italy {matteo.golfarelli,stefano.rizzi,elisa.turricchia2}@unibo.it Abstract. Agile methods have been increasingly adopted to make data warehouse design faster and nimbler. They divide a data warehouse project into sprints (iterations), and include a sprint planning phase that is critical to ensure the project success. Several factors impact on the optimality of a sprint plan, e.g., the estimated complexity, business value, and affinity of the elemental functionalities included in each sprint, which makes the planning problem difficult. In this paper we formalize the planning problem and propose an optimization model that, given the estimates made by the project team and a set of development constraints, produces an optimal sprint plan that maximizes the business value perceived by users. The planning problem is converted into a multi-knapsack problem with constraints, given a linear programming formulation, and solved using the IBM ILOG CPLEX Optimizer. Finally, the proposed approach is validated through effectiveness and efficiency tests. Keywords: Agile methods, Optimization, Data warehouse design. 1 Introduction As empirical studies suggest [9,2], agility is one of the most promising directions to overcome the problems of traditional software engineering approaches. The twelve principles stated in the......

My First Book

...Bibliophobe to Bibliophile. I hate books. Up until three years ago, that was something I would say on a daily basis. I despised books. The sight of thick hardbound books to an extent scared me. Whenever I saw anyone I knew picking out one of those thick books which wasn't a comic, all I did was ask them how they could go through reading the entire book without completely losing interest and getting 'bored'. While most people in around me read and discussed fantasy books such as 'Harry Potter', 'Artemis Fowl', 'Percy Jackson' etc. with such enthusiasm and zeal, all I could do was wonder how they could read hundreds of pages of printed text in tiny fonts without getting frustrated. I could not comprehend how reading hundreds of pages could in any way be more fascinating than watching a movie adaptation of the same content which saves hours of time and also allows you to live through the entire experience in a fast-paced well directed and acted version of it. It all changed completely three years ago. I have had a certain obsession to taking up as many challenges as I could possibly have from any and every person I have known. If anyone ever dared me to do an attainable task, I could never turn them down. One such challenge I received was to read an entire fiction book series of at least 6 books. After a period of discussion it was finally decided that it should be a classic series for my first and it ended up being Harry Potter on popular demand. This challenge eventually......

Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee Book Review

...Karen Raybould March 21, 2013 SOCI 1310 Book Review The book Bury my Heart at Wounded Knee, an Indian History of the American West written by Dee Brown is a unique look at the “civilization” of the West through the eyes of the Native American populace rather than through the point of view of American settlers. It is intended to open the eyes of the reader, presumably a white American, to what truly happened during the conquering of the American West and dispel the romanticized version of western settlement popular in mainstream media and history. In the author’s own words “Americans who have always looked westward when reading about this period should read this book facing eastward.” (Brown, XXIV). Through his retelling of history, Brown discusses the effects of stereotypes, the influence of European habits of colonization, and the evolution of American policies regarding the native people. This book was written as a revisionist history of the American West from the point of view of the loser instead of the typical history which is written from the winner’s perspective. In that regard it was highly successful as even Native American authors wished they had written the book. “’Every Indian will wish he had written it,’ said Vine Deloria, author of Custer Died for Your Sins. ‘I wish I had.’” (Brown XVIII). In this work the author presents the history of the Native Americans from their own words and records. He has painstakingly combed through military......
