Girl in a Dress
By Stephen Weiss
Be she Little Red Riding or Little Bo Peep, with just one sheet and a fleet of pleats, she’s a model so catching a model so sweet, she’s worth a zillion trick or treats. Use foil paper for best results.

History of Origami

...The term origami is comprised of two Japanese words: oru (to fold) and kami (paper). It has been defined as "A form of visual / sculptural representation that is defined primarily by the folding of the medium (usually paper)." Contrary to the common assumption, historians believe that origami did not originate in Japan, but in China in the first century AD. At that time, someone realized the inherent delight that one gets from folding a simple piece of paper into a masterpiece. The art form quickly spread across the globe--to Europe, Arabia, and then Japan; taking a firm hold in the culture and religion of the Japanese people. It became an intrinsic part of traditional samurai classes and kimono patterns. Origami forms were passed down from father to son. The pattern of folds and turns was carefully repeated and improved; from generation to generation by mouth and hand. Sadly, many origami forms were lost over the years because the oral tradition was not carried on. The first origami manuals were published in the late 1700's and early 1800's. These manuals contained many traditional forms as well as standard folds and procedures. Modern origami is a product of a cultural exchange between East and West. In truth it is not as much a part of Japanese culture as it is an amalgam of Europe and Japan. In the 1930's, a modern origami master, Akira Yoshizawa created thousands of origami forms, many of which we use today. He is the creator of the system of symbols and terms commonly......

A Thousand Paper Cranes

...back to my room calmly and maturely. A temper tantrum couldn’t help the situation at all. Of course, I’ll come up with another plan, I told myself optimistically. That’s when it hit me: origami. Yes, that’s right, origami. I would obtain that camera by doing origami. I picked up the stack of colored papers and leafed through the patterns. Turtles, boxes, balloons, doves…Aha! I found the pattern for the crane. An ancient Japanese legend promises that anyone who folds one thousand origami cranes will be granted a wish by a crane, such as long life or recovery from illness or injury, and I would be one of few to complete the feat. I knew exactly what I would wish for, and I knew I just had to fold the cranes as soon as possible. I began my work on the very next day. I spread all of the colored papers on the floor of my room and devised my plan. If I fold one hundred every day, it will take me ten days. On the tenth day, I will go to bed super early to rest up and make sure I have enough energy to make a powerful wish. When I wake up I will wish for that camera—wish with all my might, with all of the internal power my four foot three inch, seventy-five pound body had. Then, the camera will be mine. I set out to practice the technique of folding the paper cranes. It was a complex, easy to mess up origami animal. Every paper I “folded” turned into a crumpled wad, which I consequently wadded up further and launched into the paper wastebasket opposite of me. I just couldn’t figure......

Making Geometry Fun

...Making Geometry Fun with Origami Lucila Cardenas Vega University of Texas at Brownsville Introduction Teachers must have an understanding of students’ mathematical thinking in order to create meaningful learning opportunities. This becomes more relevant when teaching subjects that not all students have an interest for, such as, geometry. Since geometry is the study of shapes and configurations, it is important to understand how a student thinks about the different properties in geometry including, symmetry, congruence, lines and angles. Students remember a lesson better and the information becomes more significant when learning is accessed through hands on activities. (Pearl, 2008). Origami is the art of transforming a flat sheet of material into a finished sculpture through folding and sculpting techniques. The use of origami can be thought of as art; however, there are so many other benefits of incorporating origami in geometry lessons. According to experts, origami teaches students how to follow directions, encourages cooperation among students, improves motor skills and it helps develop multi-cultural awareness (Weirhem, 2005). Origami activities used in geometry lessons reinforces vocabulary words, facilitates the identification of shapes and simplifies congruency and symmetry (Pearl, 2008). In origami, students take a flat piece of paper and create a figure that is three dimensional. The use of origami in geometry is not new. Friedrich Froebel, the......

"Customers...will at last be able to use those services they dared not to, for fear of massive bills," Bouygues said, mentioning maps, photo sharing, restaurant searches, and e-mail. The plan costs 30 euros ($40.70) a month for those who already have a phone, and it's also got a 35-day-per-year limit. Orange comes next The price war got more serious this week when Orange, formerly called France Telecom and the holder of the French telecom monopoly, joined. Its Origami Jet Europe plan offers free calls and text messages throughout Europe and 30 days of mobile Internet usage, up to 7GB of data per year, when traveling in Europe outside France. It's a premium plan that costs 60 euros ($81.50) per month for those who already have a phone. A lower-end option called Origami Play that costs 25 euros a month ($33.90) also now includes a week of European Internet use outside France, up to 1GB of data usage per year. Another option goes to two weeks and 2GB. The plans are a step short of the T-Mobile USA plan that eliminated text-message and download roaming fees entirely in 100 countries. But in Europe, for business or tourist travel, it's a lot easier to cross borders, so roaming is a more common circumstance than in the US.

A Thousand Cranes

...A Thousand Cranes I have heard many legends, but among my favorites is that of the origami crane. Fold a single crane from paper; it is a sign of peace. Fold a thousand and it is said that a wish will be granted to the creator. As legend has it, these wishes often occur in the form of true love, a long life, prosperity, recovery from illness, or one thousand years of happiness. The effort put forth can be tedious, but well worth it. Today, I would like to share the art of origami with others, so that these cherished gifts, full of meaning can be passed along to others. I would like to explain step-by-step what has to be done, as well as, avoided in order to create this piece of art. First of all, the ultimate success of creating origami lies in the attention to detail; especially in the beginning stages. Before making any creases in the SQUARE piece of paper, make sure that the colored side is facing up; in this case, it is LAVENDER. Next, fold the square in half to form a triangle; opening up the paper, take the opposite two corners and fold another triangle. At this point, when the paper is flat there should be two creases that divide the paper into four, small triangles. Now, turn the paper over so that the white side is facing up. Fold the paper in half so that it becomes RECTANGULAR in shape; then unfold it, and again fold it in the opposite direction; make sure that the creases are well made. These creases should now define eight small triangles when the paper is...

Pmi Analysis

...the cake showed the meaning for positive motivation to make people proud of build or make something. * Builders love their work and think people also love it as the origami example. * People usually love things they made and feel they spent time and work to be done. They think is worth more value. In the conclusion, meaning of the work lead people to feel good about their work, pay attention and caring as well can motivate people to work hard and show better performance. Simple things can motivate people either for positive or negative feeling, for example ignoring people can lead to depression such as the story of the student who worked hard but the professor canceled the project. Positive motivation such as IKEA, make people build the furniture to feel like they made it. So, people would love the work when they find the meaning, some people love challenge and adventures even its hard and difficult, such as people who climbed mountains to reach the peek, when in fact climbed the mountain is not funny at all, but the motivation is to deal with challenges. Motivation is not only money, can be also pride, meaning, ownership etc. people love their work and usually evaluate their work more than other, and think people would love their work as well. As Dan explained the origami builders they were able to pay more for their work more than other people, and the cake company took out the milk and eggs from the flour, when they found......

Origami Owl

...Origami Owl; a Customizable Locket Line Author: Silky Rosales MGT 450: Strategic Planning for Organizations Instructor: Charles Jarrell Date: August 30, 2013 Most recently I was talked into joining Origami Owl. I learned about the company through a coworker who invited me to a “Jewelry Bar” in her home. Origami Owl is a line of fashionable and meaningful jewelry that is unique to each customer who creates it. Currently, there are over 40, 000 Independent Designers and the company started only two years ago. My reason for joining was really to just start a collection of my own at a discounted price. The party was quite fun, it was relaxed and everyone was very welcoming to me. After sitting through the presentation and watching the women just fall in love with the pieces, I thought to myself how easy the money was to be made. The company was founded in October 2010 by a then 14 year old who wanted to buy a car when she turned 16. Bella’s parents made a deal with her. If she wanted to create a business and earn the money, they would match her investment. With $350 in babysitting earnings and the $350 matched by her parents, she invested in some clear lockets. Bella hoped to earn enough to buy an old truck-$3,000 to $6,000 but, it became apparent that she could earn so much more with her new business. She decided that selling customizable jewelry to her friends and family was how she was going to earn the money and found that it was a hot commodity. Bella’s in home,...

Science and Art easy on the ears. Though many see art and science as somewhat at odds, the fact is that they have long existed and developed collaboratively. This synergy was embodied in great thinkers like the legendary Leonardo Da Vinci and the renowned Chinese polymath Su Song. One of Carl Jung’s mythological archetypes was the artist-scientist, which represents builders, inventors, and dreamers. Nobel laureates in the sciences are seventeen times likelier than the average scientist to be a painter, twelve times as likely to be a poet, and four times as likely to be a musician. Camouflage for soldiers in the United States armed forces was invented by American painter Abbot Thayer. Earl Bakken based his pacemaker on a musical metronome. Japanese origami inspired medical stents and improvements to vehicle airbag technology. Steve Jobs described himself and his colleagues at Apple as artists. At TED 2002, Mae Jemison, a doctor, dancer, and the first African American woman in space, said, “The difference between science and the arts is not that they are different sides of the same coin… or even different parts of the same continuum, but rather, they are manifestations of the same thing. The arts and sciences are avatars of human creativity.” Despite the profound connection between art and science, art programs across the nation are on the chopping block. In June, the U.S. House of Representatives proposed significant funding cuts to the National Endowment for the Arts. Schools......

Community Service Essay

...thought of it sounded unappealing to me. Though after experiencing the fullness of service, my ideologies on it have vastly changed and I believe that it is excellent that the prestigious institution of Saint John's College requires hours of community service to graduate, as no one should be allowed to graduate without experience this amazing time. I would like to express about my thoughts about the service project in full; encompassing where I was, who I was with, and what I was able to do. I was at the Art Centre helping kids. The placement was suitable for me. I am quite proficient in the art of visual arts; therefore I decided to help with art. The kids appreciated my presence and I loved being with them a lot. I taught them various origami folds, and also some art techniques. I enjoyed my placement a lot, and with this in mind, it is clear to say that I loved community service. I feel as if I taught the kids in a way that seemed fun and entertaining for them. The placement also carried the scent of familiarity as I had been to the Art Centre a lot for Visual Art classes. The kids there really opened my heart as they were so fun to be with, despite some being very, very annoying. Though overall, I really loved my community service placement. At my placement, I was with a few familiar faces along with a whole bunch of new people. The familiar ones were Mr. Smith and a few of my classmates. The unfamiliar ones were most exciting to me.
