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 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...

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,...

A Thousand Paper Cranes

...A Thousand Paper Cranes I have always loved taking pictures. When I was little, I used my cheap digital camera to take pictures of anything and everything. I took pictures of my family, my pets my belongings… Anything I had access to, I photographed. The summer before I turned eight was when I actually became interested in professional photography. Every night I dreamt of the fancy props, cameras, lenses and lighting that someday I would use to photograph everyone who was anyone. I’d be famous. I would photograph celebrities, super-models, big figures in politics; I’d be the photographer who everyone would envy… If only I could get that camera. “Mimi, make sure your room is clean!” my mom yelled from the living room. I was sitting on the ground, running my fingers through the pink, plush carpet that covered my bedroom floor. I was daydreaming, which was very typical me. Everywhere around me reporters rush around, trying to get a story. “Mimi! Mimi! How did the photo shoot go with the presidential family yesterday?”“Mimi! Mimi! Do you ever plan on helping other photographers follow in your steps?” “Mimi! Is your room clean? We need to run errands!” my mom yelled again, quickly jolting me back to reality. I rushed to throw the papers and pencils back in my laptop bag, and then I turned my computer off and grabbed my wallet. I ran into the living room and careened around the corner, just stopping short of the dividing wall. “I called your name four times. Why didn’t you......

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......

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. I loved to go everyday because of......

Pmi Analysis

...Omar Abu baker What makes us feel good about our work? Dan Ariely presentation about “what makes us feel good about our work” explained what motivated and inspired people to work hard. Meaning is what pushes people to work hard and love what they do, so people need to find the meaning for their work to understand and love what they do. As Dan explained meaning is equal to motivation in the revised model of labor, and people can give more at work when they find the meaning. Motivation is not about payment is also includes more things such as meaning, ownership and pride.

Three French carriers -- Orange, Bouygues, and Iliad's Free Mobile -- have begun competing for customers by cutting the roaming fees that can spook travelers and tourists from using mobile phones when abroad. The price war is good news for people in Europe, where a fragmented mobile-network market means it's common to worry about the extra costs for making calls and downloading data while traveling outside one's home country. But it's likely the carriers aren't just motivated by the urge to woo customers: they're also likely angling for a better bargaining position for talks about proposed European legislation that would scrap roaming fees completely. Neelie Kroes, the European Commission vice president overseeing the region's digital agenda, has been strongly pushing for a unified telecommunications market that would make it easier for carriers to span multiple countries and for individual customers to cross borders. One tenet of proposed legislation is an end to roaming fees by 2016. Kroes wants Europe to......
