Storing up Treasures
"Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal.” – Matthew 6:19 Actually, most people do store up their treasures on Earth, so much so in fact, that quite a few people are filling up their own treasure chests by renting out storage space. Self-Storage is an industry in which storage space is rented out to tenants, usually on a monthly basis. The storage space is usually in the form of a room, container or locker. Access to the space is usually secured by the tenant’s own lock and key. Clients include individuals, who usually store household goods, as well as businesses, which use the facilities for storing inventory or archives. As of 2009, there was approximately 2.3 billion square feet of rentable storage space in the US. The first modern self-storage facilities appeared in the US in the 1960s. The self-storage business was meant to provide individuals with space to deal with “life events”: moving, marriage, divorce etc. American workers have always been quite mobile, and the end of the 20th century, with its increasing divorce rates, and rush of transitions to 2nd or 3rd homes, saw a significant increase in the number of life events. However, by the end of the 1990s, demand was growing at a faster rate than explained by these factors. From 2000 to 2005, the number of self-storage facilities almost doubled, with 3000 new facilities built each year. Since the 1990s, demand was increasingly driven by the accumulation of goods, fuelled in part by increasing real disposable income. Individuals accumulated durables that did not rot or rust, and contrary to the mainstream economic assumption of “free disposal”, they preferred to pay to store the things they did not need, rather than throwing them away. Storing things “temporarily” was considered thrifty. Once stored, a sort of…...

Lost Treasure

...Halimatu Sadiat Bello A00014631 Wri 101-8 Cause and Effect Essay 7th November, 2012. A Lost Treasure Losing someone very important in your life can be like losing a delicate part of your body memories of some person held at a very high esteem can be heart breaking. I reminisced the last day of school so eager to get back home to the very person you want to see, touch, hug and are ready to have fun with that special person and just for you to get there and behold that person is long gone, taken away from you by one thing you hate so much and are scared of like hell, Death. I remembered that very day when Dave walked though that very door into our home, looking so healthy. So interested to know who he was seeing him for the very first time in my life, so I walked up to him and introduced myself to him as Halima and from that moment I made a new friend. We became so fond of each other and did everything together, so I asked him who is was to us on a fateful day when we both went swimming at a hotel close to our home but all he did was to ignore the question which I asked him, but I still maintained for an answer and I finally got one from him saying that he was my far distant cousin through my maternal side. Though I was aware of a long time cousin of my but to my greatest surprise it was Dave I was short of words at that very moment so I asked him what was the call of visit, and he was silent for twenty minutes, and then responded with a sad mood...

Life Is but a Span, Treasure! Value!

...Life is but a span, treasure! Value! Always, I do not understand why should pass such a life every day. It seems that every one is such, so I accept even without refusing and resisting. Everyday when I go home, I throw myself into the bed, and at the same time inexplicable sense of emptiness spreads. A voice roars in my heart, “I am unhappy, I do not like the present life”. With an exhaustion to sleep, the life is or so in tomorrow morning up, over and over again. However, one day one of my friends tell me that tired, just rest; heart heavy, just calm. Growing up, being mature, many things will see through. Tired, sad, just squat down, and give yourself a hug. Do not expect anyone else to sympathise with you, have mercy on you. Sobbing, tears are your own; hurting, no one can experience instead of you. You should be strong even going through pains and tears, and you can also tolerantly go on. Since, life is your own life. “Life is but a span, treasure! Value!” is a sentence much found on the lips of this my friend. So short, but so meaningful! Yes, throughout a person’ life, being happy is a way of spending a day, while unhappy also a way of passing a day. Therefore, let us happy now; Do what you want to do and love what you want to love; Remember something have to be remembered, while forget what should be forgotten; Change things possibly being changed, and accept what is mutable. We can calmly face anything, and actively grasp any chances. Do not excessively......

Pythagorean Quadratic Treasure Hunters

...Pythagorean Quadratic Treasure Hunters Pythagorean Quadratic Treasure Hunters Introduction to Algebra   Treasure Hunters Ahmed and Vanessa both have possession of one half of a complete treasure map. Ahmed’s map shows the treasure is buried in the desert 2x + 6 paces from Castle Rock. Vanessa’s map shows the treasure buried at x paces to the north and 2x + 4 paces to the east. When the two combine information, the location of the buried treasure is going to be a lot easier to find and they can share in the booty loot that they discover. Castle Rock is the lowest left point of the hypotenuse and at the bottom of the left leg and the treasure is at the furthest right point of the right leg. To factor the equation we start with the following, X2+(2x + 4)2 = (2x+6)2 Using the Pythagorean Theorem, a2+2ab+b2 i get a compound X2 +(4x216x+16)=4x2+24x+36 equation. It is then necessary to simplify using the quadratic 5x2+16x+16=4x2+24x+36 equation ax2-bx+c=0 so that I can factor. (x2+2)(x-10)=0 everything is set to zero for the zero factor X = 10 solve for x Plugging the x value for a, b, and c to the legs or the hypotenuse and what this does is it gives me the equation of how many paces it is to the treasure A= 10 B=2(10)+4 = 20+4 = 24 C=2x+6 = 2(10)+6 = 26 In conclusion, castle rock is located at the bottom left of a right hand triangle, and the treasure is 26 paces northeast of...

Mat 221 Buried Treasure

...Buried Treasure Allen Raikes MAT 221 DR. Steven Flanders Ahmed and Vanessa has a treasure that needs to be located. It’s up to me and to help find it, I will do that by using the Pythagorean quadratic. On page 371 we learned that the Ahmed has a half of the map and Vanessa has the other half. Ahmed half in say the treasure is buried in the desert 2x+6 paces from Castle Rock and Vanessa half says that when she gets to Castle Rock to walk x paces to the north, and then walk 2x+4 paces to the east. So with all the information I have I need to find x. the Pythagorean Theorem states that in every right triangle with legs of length a and b and hypotenuse c, which have of a relationship of a2+b2=c2. In this problem I will let a=x, and b= 2x+4, and c=2x+6. So know it time to put the measurements into the Theorem equation; 1) X2+ (2x+4)2=(2x+6)2 this is the Pythagorean Theorem 2) X2+4x2+16x+16 = 4x2+ 24x+36 are the binomials squared 3) 4x2 & 4x2 on both sides can be subtracted out. 4) X2+16x+16 = 24x +36 subtract 16x from both sides 5) X2+16 = 8x+36 now subtract 36 from both sides 6) X2-20 = 8x 7) X2-8x-20=0 this is the quadratic equation to solve by factoring using the zero factor. 8) (x-)(x+) Since the coefficient of x2 is 1 we have to start with pair of () is the 20 in negative there will be one + and one – in the binomials. 9) -2, 10: -10,2: -5,4; -4, -5 10) Looks I’m going to use -10 and 2...

A Treasure Hunt at Castle Rock Using Pythagorean Quadratic

... added. 5x^2 + 16x+16x=4x^2+24x+36 Like terms combined This is a quadratic equation so to solve this we need to first set it equal to zero that means everything must be moved to one side and then we need to factor. Move everything on the right to the left. Subtract 4x^2 from both sides, subtract 24 from both sides and 36 from both sides. 5x^2+16x+16x=4x^2+24x+36 -4x^2 -24 -36 -4^2 -24 -36 Everything on the left side cancels out. X^2 -8x -20 =0 what remains is a quadratic equation to be solve factoring and using the zero factors. (x-) (x+)=0 Since the coefficient of x^2 is 1, we use a pair of parentheses with an x in each one. Because -20 is a Because -20 is a negative, there will be one + and one – In the binomials. Two factors of -20 that adds up to 8 are needed as possible values. The only values I can think of are: -1, 20; -2, 10, 1,-20; 2,-10. The possible values I think are......

...[QUOTE=AllHailKurama;14710009]Question: when you say Naruto lost twice, are you counting the time they were both 3 and Naruto got pinned down? There's no way that counts as one...and also I don't remember Naruto ever saying he couldn't beat Sasuke, Naruto only ever aknowledged that Sasuke was strong. And you could use the entire war arc as evedince that Naruto could beat Sasuke...[/QUOTE] Naruto sole purpose the entire series has been to "Catch up with sasuke" his reasoning for training was so he could be able to catch up with sasuke, or have enough strength to save him. Fact of the matter still stands that throughout the entire series naruto has never been superior to sasuke up until the point where naruto received chakra from tailed beast 1-7, and BSM. Even so, naruto is still only slightly superior than sasuke simply from that massive chakra reserves from Kurama, partial from the other 7 tailed beast and the destructive force from Bijuu damas. When I say naruto lost twice i'm referring to the fight at final valley, and the first time they encountered sasuke in shippuden at orochimaru hideout. But I can post a 100 scans if need be that indicate that sasuke has been far superior to naruto the entire series part 1 and part 2. Zabuza fight this was obvious whilst he was fighting and covering for naruto.

Treasure Trove Analysis

... differences are the biological ones such as disability, gender, race and age. We will discuss the new challenges that is coming from the fact that thanks to human life extension, many workers delay their retirement over the age of 55. This brings older workers, which must perform and address some specific discrimination issues within companies. As the population ages, it requires the employment relationship to evolve. Job functions and scopes may have to be re-discussed or adjusted. Employees and managers may need some specifically designed training sessions in order to manage to work efficiently together with older colleagues. Some programs may be put in place also to teach and communicate on negative discrimination and emphasize on the benefits of having more stable and experienced people. I think that managers will face new challenges when it comes to dealing with age diversity. I am not concerned about the fact that people from different generations could work nicely together and help each other, as I believe everybody brings something useful and different, but the processes and tools have evolved so much, that I can think of some specific issues related to communication tools. Communication is key and it could be really misleading when you do not use the most efficient and up to date technology. I can think also of the team spirit as it has been described that baby boomers would be less individualist than generation X or Y. Older people tend to prefer a team approach,......

Winding Up

...Winding up / Dissolution of Companies Business Law Haroon Ahmadi 01-111131-101 Submitted To Sir Ahsen Ullah Winding up The term ‘winding up’ of a company may be defined as the proceedings by which a company is dissolved (i.e. the life of a company is put to an end). Thus, the winding up is the process of putting an end to the life of the company. And during this process, the assets of the company are disposed of, the debts of the company are paid off out of the realized assets or from the contributories and if any surplus is left, it is distributed among the members in proportion to their shareholding in the company. The winding up of the company is also called the ‘liquidation’ of the company. The process of winding up begins after the Court passes the order for winding up or a resolution is passed for voluntary winding up. The company is dissolved after completion of the winding up proceedings. On the dissolution, the company ceases to exist. So, the legal procedure by which the existence of an incorporated company is brought to an end is known as winding up. Consequences of winding up Some important consequences of winding up of company are...

Growing Up

...Growing Up Paper 3/31/2014 Parenting comes with a magnitude of struggles, from teaching your children right from wrong to helping them learning through experience, even if it’s through mistakes. Parents and grandparents have a lot in common starting with their love for the children in their lives. Unfortunately that doesn't always stop grandparents and parents from bickering about a variety of issues, especially about the guidelines of the child’s life. In the memoir Growing Up, by Russell Baker, Russell’s grandmother, Ida Rebecca, and his mother, Lucy Elizabeth disagreed on most everything due to a clash in ideals and generations. Russell Baker had a tough life, but succeeded, probably because of his mother’s constant hectoring. Lucy Elizabeth always wanted her children to be successful in life. To her, that meant that they needed to make a name for themselves through business. As a child, Russell constantly was told to make something of himself. From a young age, Lucy Elizabeth was very driven. She often speaks highly of her Papa and how he was “a good man.” He was her model of excellence. Although Papa failed at succeeding in life, he never gave up. She wanted her to brothers and her husband to turn out like the good man her father once was. When they failed to make some she turned to her children to make something of themselves. Russell talks about how his mother despised inactivity and was forced to start working at the age of eight so that he was able to keep...

Influence of Incas Treasure in European Development

For starters wanted to comment that the gold, silver and other valuable minerals considered by Europeans had no economic value to the natives. They were only ornaments for their beauty and ease to be handled or used in some religious rites. In America in those years there was no currency, trade was conducted through barter and only the Aztecs came to be used as optional currency cocoa beans. By this I mean that for native gold was not much more than Westerners of the time ceramic figurine on a shelf. Actually yes metals were carried Spain extracted from the American mines or as war booty was to be used to settle the actual tax Castilian law imposed on the overall economic activity: Quinto Real, which applied on company profits, ie after deduction of expenses and revenues on the profit 20% it must be sent to the crown by real collectors departed. The collection of these taxes was made by gold bars as they were easier to transport than any other form of payment. By this I mean gold, silver, pearls, emeralds, sugar, etc, that was extracted from American soil only be sent at most Quinto Real, that is, 80% of the wealth produced is America remained in contributing to its development and the creation of a rich and advanced society. This Quinto Real was variable depending on the circumstances and economic conditions of each era so even there were......

Treasure

...Golden Treasure I have visited the Metropolitan Museum many times and still seem to be amazed by the beauty that surrounds me. It is common to see paintings and sculptures, but not so ordinary to be able to view beautiful pieces of gold jewels. Gold jewelry is a symbol of power, royalty, high class and pure elegance and this room at the MET displaying different pieces is exactly that. I choose this piece because not only was I drawn to its beauty but it also reminded me of pieces my mother and her mother wore during their weddings. This piece is a pure depiction of elegance and grandiose status. The Nose Ornament was from the Yotoco period in Colombia during the 1st -7th centuries. Nose ornamentation is one of the earliest forms of beautifications used during Pre-Colombian times. They were made in a variety of materials, however during this period they put a strong emphasis on exquisite gold objects in which became a primary way they exemplified their social status and relationships as well as their beliefs. The gold jewelry ranged in various sizes, from small rings to larger headpieces. This piece was one of the larger Yotoco gold pieces because it was believed to have covered the lower portion of the face. A pure symbol of elegance and power through the gold and an item of awareness through the dangling rectangles. Not only was this a beautiful piece of jewelry but it had various meanings behind it. During the Yotoco period, gold marked a difference in class in the...

Treasure of Trove of the Aging Workforce

...Treasure Trove of the Aging Workforce Abstract The purpose of this paper is to analyze the diverse workforce with a focus on age diversity. The factors include challenges that can occur in an organization, how to overcome these challenges and benefits of a diverse workplace. This paper is organized by answering three questions around age diversity. The answers consist of various literature reviews and personal insight. Treasure Trove of the Aging Workforce It was once known that the retirement age was 65. That is no longer the case. Employees are no longer retiring, mostly due to the outlaw of mandatory retirement. In addition to not having retirement regulated, people are healthier today due to medical science so they can work longer. With the aging workforce occurring there can be challenges that need to be overcome in order to effectively run an organization in todays world. Aging Diversity What changes in employment relationships are likely to occur as the population ages? Researchers suggest employers have mixed feeling about the aging workforce, however many can be positive. Positive changes in employment relationships that likely will occur can be the increase in work experience, job satisfaction, a strong work ethic, commitment to employer, and to quality of work. Pearson and Judge (2015) state, “ They bring to the job a higher skill level earned through years of experience, remember the organization’s history and know the aging customer base...
