...In the middle of my senior year in high school, I was given the opportunity to go to either Northwest or Mississippi State. I know it seems like everybody has that option, but for me it was different. I had a full ride, but my parents didn’t want me to go just yet. They gave me the pros and cons of going to MSU or Northwest. Although moving out sounded good, other circumstances also applied. Having to support myself financially in every other aspect was the main decider. At the time, I was given these options all I wanted to do was move out and be on my own. Being able to hold a job in another town though is what held me back. Instead of going to Starkville I decided to stay a little closer to home and live with my parents. Because I still live with my parents, I have a good job and don’t have to worry about money. With the money I have been making, I’m able to buy a new vehicle and still feel independent. I plan on keeping the job throughout college, or till I’m through with Northwest. I think that taking it slow into college was the best thing for me to do. I feel like it has taught me to really think about serious decisions before acting on my personal wants. In ten years I see myself having graduated from Mississippi State with a degree in forestry. I also see my self having a family of my own and being able to teach my kids the same lessons my parents have taught...

...Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia (Ethiopia) – Population Dynamics Ethiopian Population Dynamics – Exercise 1 Abstract The Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia commonly referred to as Ethiopia is a developing country with an estimated population of 84 million (Background Note: Ethiopia). Ethiopia has a population growth rate of roughly 2.6%, an infant mortality rate of 77/1,000 live births and a life expectancy of age 56 (Ethiopia DataFinder ). With this information in mind, Ethiopia is a developing country with some significant population concerns. Ethiopian Population Dynamics Ethiopia boasts a highly diverse population with over seventy seven different ethnic groups each with their own language, culture and beliefs (Background Note: Ethiopia). Though Addis Ababa, Ethiopia’s capitol is a fairly well developed and ever growing city much of the population lives in rural areas where quality of life services such as hospitals, doctors and medicine are often out of reach. Due to this it is not uncommon to see a gross difference in population data between rural and urban areas. Birth/Fertility Rates In the urban areas of Ethiopia the estimated birth rate for people between age twenty and twenty nine is two hundred eighty one while the birth rate for the same age group is four hundred ninety eight in rural communities (Ethiopia Demographic and Health Survey 2011). The birth rate in rural areas is more than fifty percent higher than urban areas where......

She sits quietly and reflects upon her nails. He watches her in the window's reflection. He sighs heavily. She lifts her head. She looks out past him into the darkness.

The Sniper (Short Story) Brother's Pov Rewrite

...As the sun was setting on the warm June night, Dublin was quiet except for the inconsistent noise of rifles and machine guns in the distance. The city was waged in civil war, and I was prepared to do anything to fight for what I believed in. I was sitting on a rooftop right across the street from the O'Connell Bridge, all I had with me was my rifle, a pack of cigarettes, and an old sandwich that I was saving for a safe time. It had been quiet for quite some time now, but I knew the enemy was still on the same building he had been on, there was no way he could have moved positions without me noticing. As I lay there watching I had began to crave one of the smokes I had in my pocket, with nothing to do up here it was difficult to resist them. Almost immediately after the thought entered my head I noticed a match flare up in my peripheral vision outside the scope, without having time to precisely aim I fired a shot. I knew right away I didn't hit my target because I heard the snap of the bullet hitting the metal edge of the parapet where the enemy was taking cover. After I had taken a shot and missed I knew I had to stay down for a while, I could hear the enemy sniper moving around on the roof so I decided to stay low. All of a sudden I started to hear the roar of an armored vehicle. I knew it was friendly because it was coming from the West which was where our post was, I was relieved. I could hear talking down on the street near the vehicle, but couldn't quite make out what......

...rates r for one year. If the interest rate is compounded semiannually then the polynomial p(1+r2) represents the value of investment after one year. Rewrite the problem without the equation.”(Algebra) For the first equation p will stand for 200 and r will stand for 10%. First I need to turn the interest rate into a decimal. 10%=0.1. Now I can rewrite the equation.2001+0.122. Now that I have my equation written out I can start to solve. I start by dividing 0.1 by 2 to get 0.05. Now I can rewrite 2001+0.052. First I add the 1 and 0.05 giving me 1.05 to square. Any number times itself is called squaring. So now we square (1.05)*(1.05)=(1.1025). Again we rewrite our equation 200*1.1025=220.5. Now we can remove the parentheses leaving us with an answer of 220.5. The answer for this first part of 2001+0.0122=220.5. Second Part On this second part let p stand for 5670 and r will stand for 3.5%. Again I start by turning my percentage into a decimal 3.5%=0.035. Now that we have our decimal we can write out our equation 56701+0.03522 . Now that I have my equation written out I can start by dividing both the top and bottom of the divisor. 0.0352=0.0175 . Now I have 2001+0.01752, now I work my inner variables. 1+0.0175=1.0175. Again we rewrite 56701.01752and now solve for power. 1.0175*1.0175=1.0353. Now we do our final rewrite and multiply 5670*1.0353=5870.1864. Now we remove the parenthesis and this will leave us with a...

...Ways to develop counter narratives against revisionists and activists who are attempting to rewrite the history of Singapore and Malaysia in order to downplay the Communist threat and violence. The Malayan Communist party originated as an overseas branch of the Chinese Communist party in Malaysia in 1925. In 1930 a Vietnamese communist known by the name of Ho Chi Minh directed the Malaysian Communist Party to become an independent organization. He attempted to completely change the way the organization was run- it originally was only beneficial to a Chinese communist movement. His ideals were a party that represented not only the Chinese but the Malayans and Indians creating a more multiracial party. However, the idea was never completely recognized by all and he was arrested in 1930. In 1941, when the Japanese invaded Malaysia, it became an opportunity for the party to not only build up strength in numbers but also in popularity, especially by the Chinese who were receiving the most of the Japanese hostility in the war. Among the measures taken were the declaration of emergency, enlarging the security force, the Briggs Plan, military steps, psychological warfare (the Templer Plan), and through the declaration of amnesty. In February 1963, the Singapore and Malaysian police forces organized a joint operation that resulted in the arrest of 111 suspected communists in the two countries. This large-scale police action targeted suspected CPM members in Singapore and......
