Periodic Table

...chemist Julius Lothar Meyer published a table of the 49 known elements arranged by valency. The table revealed that elements with similar properties often shared the same valency. English chemist John Newlands produced a series of papers in 1864 and 1865 noting that when the elements were listed in order of increasing atomic weight, similar physical and chemical properties recurred at intervals of eight; he likened such periodicity to the octaves of music.This Law of Octaves, however, was ridiculed by Newlands' contemporaries, and the Chemical Society refused to publish his work.[7] Newlands was nonetheless able to draft a table of the elements and used it to predict the existence of missing elements, such as germanium. The Chemical Society only acknowledged the significance of his discoveries five years after they credited Mendeleev.[8] Mendeleev's table Dmitri Mendeleev Mendeleev's 1869 periodic table; note that his arrangement presents the periods vertically, and the groups horizontally. Russian chemistry professor Dmitri Mendeleev and German chemist Julius Lothar Meyerindependently published their periodic tables in 1869 and 1870, respectively. They both constructed their tables by listing the elements in rows or columns in order of atomic weight and starting a new row or column when the characteristics of the elements began to repeat. The success of Mendeleev's table came from two decisions he made. The first was to leave gaps in the table when it......

The Welcome Table

...The Welcome Table Tameeka Smith-Ashby ENG 125: Introduction to Literature Instructor: Sarah MacDonald In every story characters pose drama, and excitement to capture the readers attention. What may be deceptively hidden behind the words of the author is the heart of the story, which is considered to be the theme. The theme is what stays in your mind, it’s what makes you wonder how and why. This literary element is a must, when constructing any style of literature. There is a need to captivate the reader while allowing their mind to roam, seeking message is direct. In Alice Walker’s short story “The Welcome Table” I found the theme to be that of sorrow. She sets the ambience with a portrayal of an elderly poor black lady. In my opinion this woman is walking with sorrow, she doesn’t have much and is looked down on as nothing though the people in her community. Even though, Alice Walker demonstrates this premise as she places the elderly lady in a church that is restricted for whites only. When most people think a church is a place we’re many can go to worship the elderly woman shown very early that it wouldn’t be as easy. “The young usher, never having turned anyone out of his church before, but not even considering this job as that (after all, she had no right to be there, certainly), went up to her and whispered that she should leave.” R.W. Clugston Journey into Literature (2010). The elderly woman cannot seem to escape the sorrow that has become her life,......

...Running head: OPEN TABLE E-Commerce for Small Business Bryan Nickum Prof. Richard Swersey December 7, 2013 Case Study: Open Table 1. Why will OpenTable competitors have a difficult time competing against OpenTable? Competitors will have a difficult time competing against OpenTable for a few different reasons. They are well established with having which is a popular web site for making restaurant reservations and they also operate, a leading restaurant site in the United Kingdom. In just 13 years, they now have around two-thirds of the nation’s reservation-taking restaurants as clients. It is also relatively easy for people seeking a reservation to make one with their easy to use web site, mobile web site and mobile app. With all this said, it is extremely difficult for competitors to compete. 2. What characteristics of the restaurant market make it difficult for a national reservation system to work? The restaurant industry was slow to leverage the power of the internet. This was because the market was slow and still is, with only about 30,000 small, independent restaurants or local restaurant-owning groups. 3. How did OpenTable change its marketing strategy to succeed? The company changed its hardware and software to make it more user-friendly and they organized and implemented a door-to-door sales approach to solicit......

E Table

Placed by the swipe of a finger. This is the future of restaurants. These types of table first introduce London’s “inamo” restaurant called E-Table, the interactive ordering system is designed to give patrons “more control over their dining experience”.  A projector, which is installed in the ceiling above each table, projects an interactive menu on the tabletop.  Using a touch mouse pad, patrons can navigate the menu, place orders, choose a virtual tablecloth, and project images of each meal on their plates to help them decide which one to get.  The system isn’t only for placing orders – patrons can also use it to play video games, call a taxi, or watch the chef prepare their meals via a live webcam!  E-Table also offers a lot of perks to the restaurant owners, like reduced staff costs, an increase in customer spending, and a more efficient way to deal with customers. How it works: The E-Table system uses overhead projection to deliver a menu and other digital images to a restaurant table-top. Projected images do overlay food dishes in restaurants but the system can be designed as clients want. In fact the restaurants have a clear display no projection over the plate. There are two touch panels built in to each table, which allow guests to browse the menu, place orders, and interact......

The Welcome Table

...“The Welcome Table” Arlene Randolph ENG 125 Introduction to Literature Cicely Young, Instructor November 11, 2013 The Welcome Table The title of the story would lead you to believe that this particular “table” would be welcoming, warm and inviting and the people sitting behind the table would receive you joyfully and happily. It is unfortunate that not all “welcome tables” fit this description. This story captured my interest two ways: because I am familiar with the author, Alice Walker, and having read her Pulitzer Prize book “The Color Purple”. In addition, Ms. Walker established an image at the beginning of the story. As noted in the text an image is a distinct representation of something that can be experienced and understood through the senses (sight, hearing, touch, smell and taste). (Clugston, 2010) With the description of the old woman’s attire I was able to picture in my mind exactly what she was wearing and even that she had cataract. “There was a dazed and sleepy look in her aged blue-brown eyes”. (Clugston, 2010) The setting of this story takes place in Georgia during a time when this woman did not have an automobile and had to walk ½ a mile to church. It took place at a time when all parishioners were not allowed to worship at the same church. While reading this story, I found that this old woman was not welcomed in this particular church (table) that she found herself in, I believe, because she was African American and it was a......

Life Tables

...LIFE TABLES Life tables are statistical tools constructed for measuring the mortality of a population. They provide a description of the most important aspects of the state of human mortality. They try to show, for a person at a particular age, what the probability is that they die before their next birthday. TYPES OF LIFE TABLES Life tables have been classified into several types: 1. Conventional/period/cross-sectional life tables- these tables are based on age specific mortality rates for a specific period of time for the whole population. These rates are derived from deaths occurring over a selected period of time and the population at the mid-point of this period, a period of one year is mostly considered. 2. Generation/cohort life tables- these are based on a cohort throughout its life. We should remember a cohort is a group of individuals all born during the same time interval. The table shows the probability of death of people from a given cohort over the course of their lifetime. 3. Complete life tables- these are tables in which the mortality experience is considered in each single year throughout the life span. It is a more detailed method of measuring mortality since these tables are constructed on yearly basis. 4. Abridged life tables- are tables in which the measures are given for age groups and not for every single year of age. Its values are mostly in general terms and it is used to simplify the complete life tables whose construction is very laborious....

Round Table

...Round Table Management Practices MGT 330: Management for Organizations Professor Edris Gehy Jason Campbell 6/22/2014 Round Table Management Practices Management practices play crucial and decisive roles in allowing employees to work together for the accomplishment of common goals and objectives. An emphasis needs to be placed more upon reaching the predetermined goals just as much as to receive far better growth and progression for the company. There stays a great necessity to perform the business practices in a reliable way and with the successful implementation of management practices, the employees can be brought to together and learn to make the best possible use of available resources. Management practices guide and direct any organization to move forward along a proper path to ensure success. The management practices of planning, leading, organizing, staffing and controlling are being implemented in nearly all workplaces, and are able to derive far better results than previously unorganized systems. These five management functions have been validated and proven to be worthwhile in setting goals and objectives, and I will show the difference between management at my place of employment, and effective management in this paper. The initial step in effective managing is planning. This involves forming the mission, vision and objectives of the company and laying out a detailed plan for the way through these goals are to be attained. In the......

The Welcome Table

...I read “The Welcome Table by Alice Walker. The Welcome Table is told in the third person and shifts the point of view from which the story is told. The theme of this story is a simple, but good one. The theme of this is about an old, rundown black woman who staggers the necessary distance in the freezing cold to attend an all-white people church. What captured my interest about this short story is the religious symbolism. Per R. Wayne Clugston “a symbol is an object, person, or action that conveys two meaning: its own literal meaning and something it stands for as well” (Clugston, 2010, p.480). It is filled with symbolism of life and death; good and evil; love and hatred; and peace and anger. Throughout this paper, Alice will demonstrate the significance of how the application of point of view, setting, and symbolism plays a role contributing the theme of a story. In the story, a black woman enters a “white” church. She is a woman of faith; “there was a dazed and sleepy look in her aged blue–brown eyes” (Clugston, 2010) blue symbolizes a peacefulness that this woman has because of her faith. She is not a welcomed visitor to this congregation, though. The parishioners feel “a fear of the black and the old” (Clugston, 2010), the use of the word black is not just to tell us the color of her skin, but to symbolize evil. This is further supported in the words, “many of them saw jungle orgies in an evil place” (Clugston, 2010). The interesting thing about evil here is......

Periodic Table

...Periodic table From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to: navigation, search This article is about the table used in chemistry. For other uses, see The Periodic Table. Standard form of the periodic table. The colors represent different categories of elements explained below. The periodic table is a tabular display of the chemical elements, organized on the basis of their atomic numbers and chemical properties. Elements are presented in increasing atomic number. The main body of the table is a 18 × 7 grid, and elements with the same number of valence electrons are kept together in groups, such as the halogens and the noble gases. Due to this, there are gaps that form four distinct rectangular areas or blocks. The f-block is not included in the main table, but rather is usually floated below, as an inline f-block would make the table impractically wide. Using periodic trends, the periodic table can help predict the properties of various elements and the relations between properties. As a result, it provides a useful framework for analyzing chemical behavior, and is widely used in chemistry and other sciences. Although precursors exist, the current table is generally credited to Dmitri Mendeleev, who developed it in 1869 to illustrate periodic trends in the properties of the then-known elements; the layout has been refined and extended as new elements have been discovered and new theoretical models developed to explain chemical behavior. Mendeleev's presentation......
