Lithium is very rare. It can not be found very easily, it is made up of only 0.0007% of the earth’s crust.2
Lithium was found in 1817 by Johan August Arfwedson.3 De Andrada came across a new mineral when he was visiting Scandinavia. He didn’t know what it was called so he named it is mineral petalite.
Jonhan then started analysing it. He decided to name it Lithium and that is how lithium was found.
Lithium is used to treat the manic depression. The most important use of lithium is the rechargeable battery in phones,laptops etc. Lithium can be used in many different ways because it has one valence electron. 4 The most interesting fact about lithium is: Lithium fires are very hard to put out. You can’t put it out with fire because it would only make it worse.
A powder fire extinguisher is needed.5

...Context of Interview and Subject Background It was a cold morning as I walked up the hill toward my neighbor’s house. The monkey grass needles bent with the weight of frozen dew. I look to my left and Tim has planted eight blueberry bushes. An addition to the garden both he and his wife tend. A gentle knock at the door and I am warmly welcomed by Tim's wife Lynn. She directs me to the living room where I sit to begin the interview. Tim says to me "it's going to be hard to put sixty five years into an hour and a half, but I will do my best". Tim and his wife live in a four bedroom house that was built in 1980. It is a wonderfully quaint red brick house, secluded in five acres of woods that is just six miles from downtown Knoxville. The inside of the house is fully decorated and furnished, but without clutter. I am immediately offered coffee and cinnamon toast. I begin by asking Tim to tell me his life story in his own words. Tim was born in 1946, the first year of the baby boomers, in Newport, Rhode Island. He was raised in a Catholic family that instilled core values in his life. Tim and his wife Lynn have six children and several grandchildren. There are pictures of family on many walls of the house. In his life he has served in the military during Vietnam, graduated from college, had a successful career, and even raised a family. As he begins, my pen is moving, and it hardly stops for the next hour and a half. Cultural Identity "Identity, or a sense...

Violence in Literature

...because it is inevitable in life. Authors are human just like us. So naturally, by reading literature violence is going to appear. Humans are only bound by their imagination as to how violent we can get. This is why violence is so prevalent inside the literature we read, because it is synonymous with our lives. We have to either see, hear, or talk about violence everyday of our lives. Literature reveals the types of violence that is experienced throughout time. Different periods of time have different views and tactics about violence. Now, in the twenty-first century technology has changed the way violence is executed. Literature has evolved along with the violence throughout time. When violence in literature changes so does violence in reality. Sometimes reality is recorded in literature as like a violence timeline. This tells people how and why violence changes or evolves into how we view violence today. Society changes towards more civilized people. No longer are there events like public hangings, decapitation, and showdowns. I know there are some cultures still may execute these events, but not very likely in the twenty-first century. In “Candide,” by Voltaire, the human capacity for violence is inspired by ignorance, but executed with unlimited imagination. Is violence necessary? Why is it or is not necessary? Is violence avoidable or unavoidable? Is violence acceptable or unacceptable? These are asked to all conflicts in life. "humankind has......

Things They Carried

...Tim O'Brien does a fantastic job of blurring the lines of what is true and what is fiction in The Things They Carried. In fact, he often points out that he has made entire stories up, after the fact. He defends his decisions by proposing that what he has done is, in fact, not lie, but rather tell a story-truth. He argues that his reason for doing this is to bring the story to life more than it could live through the happening-truth. 'I want you to feel what I felt. I want you to know why story-truth is truer sometimes than happening-truth' (O'Brien, 183). O'Brien believes that, when accompanied by vivid details which essentially make the reader view the scene as a dream, story-truths can carry greater emotional truths than ever possible to be achieved through actual, happening-truths. With this, he shows, contrary to belief, how story-truths are often truer than happening-truths, and demonstrates this through the addition of often graphic details. Happening-truth encompasses actual events that take place. However true these stories may be, they are often times viewed as unreal simply because they have no details to back them up. The entire shit field scene that was put into this book, for example, was turned from a happening-truth into a story-truth because the original version was not believable. The reader can see this through O'Brien describing the letters that he received from Norman Bowker. Norman writes to Tim, telling him that he should write about the event. 'What...

...Timothy McGraw Tim Mcgraw born Samuel Timothy McGraw on May 1, 1967 in Delhi, Louisiana is an influential, accomplished and successful country singer. Tim has had consecutive albums debut at Number one on the Billboard album charts which is a hard achievement to reach as an artist. He has won three Grammy’s, three People’s Choice awards, 10 American Music awards, 11 Country Music Association, and 14 Academy of Country Music Awards, now who as an artist let alone country artist would not want these type of accolades? I know I would, then to top that off his Soul2Soul II tour was and still is till this day is the highest grossing tour in country music history, and ranks in the top 5 spots for all genres of music. The song I chose from Tim McGraw’s collection of hits was “Live Like You Were Dying”, it was written by Tim Nichols and Craig Wiseman in early 2004 but was performed by Tim Mcgraw. This song reached #1 on U.S. Billboard country music charts and continued to stay there for several weeks. Tim associated the song with his father who was hospitalized in 2003 but died 9 months later to cancer and he did everything he could to enjoy his last months despite doctors telling him that he has only 3 months live, from this tragic life event Tim learned that every day is not promised to us so we must live life to the fullest and live as if it was your last day hence the title of the song and numerous clichés on the saying itself. He did a lot of searching and finding out who he...

Vision to Success

...Life Mapping: A Vision of Success By Tim Bennett Success is more than economic gains, titles, and degrees. Planning for success is about mapping out all the aspects of your life. Similar to a map, you need to define the following details: origin, destination, vehicle, backpack, landmarks, and route. Origin: Who you are A map has a starting point. Your origin is who you are right now. Most people when asked to introduce themselves would say, “Hi, I’m Tim and I am a 44 year old businessman.” It does not tell you about who Tim is; it only tells you my age, present preoccupation and that I am male. To gain insights about yourself, you need to look closely at your beliefs, values, and principles aside from your economic, professional, cultural, and civil status. Moreover, you can also reflect on your experiences to give you insights on your good and not-so-good traits, skills, knowledge, strengths, and weaknesses. Upon introspection, Tim realized that he was highly motivated, generous, service-oriented, but impatient. His inclination was in the entertainment field. Furthermore, he believed that life must serve a purpose, and that wars were destructive to human dignity. Destination: A vision of who you want to be “Who do want to be?” this is your vision. Now it is important that you know yourself so that you would have a clearer idea of who you want to be; and the things you want to change whether......

...Tim Berta’s presentation on the bus wreck and how it has affected him and how he is getting through it with a positive attitude was very inspiring. Being a valedictorian and two-sport athlete in college, life never seemed so good. Tim was a humble guy who had qualities about him that would allow him to do what he wanted to do later in life. After the wreck, basically not being able to do anything that he use to be able to do must have been the hardest thing to stay positive in those situations. Personally I believe the slide show Tim presented with the four seasons will stick with me the most and have the most impact on my life in the future. For Tim to stay positive in the light of all setbacks and difficulties is truly amazing not only on a personal level but also a mental level as the tasks he had to go through and cope with. Going forward in my life I think I will take advantage of everything I have and no matter the situation to stay positive and keep encouraging my self throughout all my seasons whether the times are tough or great. I also think that people cannot be taken for granted in your life. Everyone needs to let the people they care about, know that they do everyday. You never know what may happen to someone on any given day. Tim Berta is truly an inspirational person who’s story will stick with me the rest of life of how in the light of a tragic event he was able to with the help of family and friends persevere, and with a positive and determined attitude......

Property Leasehold Essay

...The trial judge will only order Tim to pay Larry back rent in the amount of $500 and find that Tim properly vacated the premises. There are four types of leasehold estates: (1) Term of years; (2) Periodic tenancies; (3) Tenancies at will; and (4) Tenancies at sufferance. A term of years is a lease for a fixed, determined period of time. No notice is required for termination. A term of years greater than one year must be in writing to satisfy the statute of frauds. A periodic tenancy continues for successive intervals until either the landlord or tenant give proper notice of termination. Unless otherwise agreed, the common law default rule requires notice to be given at least equal to the length of the period itself. A tenancy at will has no fixed time or period, and it may terminate at any moment by either party. Reasonable notice must be given to terminate the tenancy at will. A tenancy at sufferance is created when the tenant has wrongfully held over after the expiration of the original lease. It is usually short-lived and will continue only until the landlord either evicts the tenant or gives the tenant a new leasehold. Unless otherwise agreed by the landlord and tenant, the tenancy at sufferance is subject to those same terms and conditions as the original lease. In other words, the tenant will be required to pay the same amount of rent by the same method as agreed upon in the original lease. When the tenant holds over, the landlord has two options: (1) The......

The Runaway

...the Rainy River » which is a short story written by Tim O’Brien. This American author published in 1990 « The Things They Carried », a collection of related stories about a platoon of American soldiers in the Vietnam War. While modeled after the author’biography and sharing the same name, Tim is a fictional character and not the author who’s intentionally blurs this distinction, even though he has also been drafted overthere. To sum up briefly, the character, 21, tells us how his storybook world collapsed when he received a draft notice for the Vietnam War. We’ll fisrt develop the dilemma which tortures Tim. Then we’ll analyze the role of the second character, Elroy, and the unexpected « nonconformist » punch line. This excerpt takes place in Minnesota where Tim is fishing on the Rainy River which marks the border between the USA and Canada. It deals with the issues of whether the war he has been drafted into is right and if he should go to the war or be a coward and run away from the war. The dilemma is hard. The draft, at least during the Vietnam war, was a sort of lottery that determined the order of men, by birthdate, to serve as soldiers. This was instituted because there were not enough voluntary soldiers serving in the military. The ways a citizen of the U.S. could avoid going to the Vietnam War was either leave the country or contract some life threatening desease. The first one may have been a solution for Tim who initially decided to run off to Canada to......

Exegetical Paper on 1 Timothy 2

...the pastoral epistle 1 Timothy in which Paul gives corrective instruction to Timothy regarding the structure of the worship service for the church in Ephesus. This passage is frequently discussed with regards to church structure and is particularly raised in opposition to women holding the office of pastor or elder. It is a key passage in the debate between complementarianism, which argues that men and women are of equal intrinsic worth before God but should have complementary roles in the church and in society, and egalitarianism, which argues for no institutional distinctions between men and women. Although a common assumption has been that an egalitarian interpretation promotes liberal feminist agendas, an egalitarian interpretation of 1 Tim 2:9-15 is not necessarily an unbiblical or liberal interpretation. This can be shown through a consistent hermeneutical approach to interpreting the text that upholds the inspiration, authority and inerrancy of scripture whilst giving strong hermeneutical reasoning for its interpretational decisions. Paul’s authorship of the book of 1 Timothy was universally accepted until recent years. Strong evidence for his authorship has been that many early church fathers such as Clement of Alexandria, Origen, Eusebius and Ignatius all cited Paul as the author of 1 Timothy.[1] Controversy over authorship only began in the nineteenth century, and has been denied by most conservatives on historical grounds. To agree that the historical claim of......
