Ward Churchill presents a narrow view of his thoughts concerning the 9/11 attacks in his article, “Some People Push Back”: On the Justice of Roosting Chickens. Not only does he present a narrow view of ideas, but also he explains and argues the unusual interpretations of the attacks that day with supporting evidence. According to Churchill’s article, The United States of America is responsible for the incident of 9/11 due to their foreign policy in the Middle East. Churchill’s tone provokes the audience to continue to read on, while emotionally and logically providing credible examples to support his reasoning. He challenges us to think in-depth while reading the article. For instance, are we mad at him personally, or mad that he pointed out the truth under the story. Churchill argues his interpretation of the events through three key strategies: credibility, emotion, and logic. Logically, his interpretations can’t be viewed in a substantial manner due to his credibility as an author. But, in fact, logically he supports his ideas about the attacks that day with evidence. Ethically, he recognizes the concepts of right and wrong; he tries to point out to the people of the United States that is in fact may be provoked by ourselves, and to halt the blaming of other third-world countries. Emotionally his tone connects with his argument, giving the article a sense of purpose. He provokes the reader by prodding them with examples in past history that are sour to the minds of the people.
Churchill actively corresponds to his audience in such a manner that he purposely publishes this article for a wide variety of readers. He knows many people will empathize differently about his opinions, though logical and somewhat credible. His target audience is that of people open to ideas, people with a broad and open-minded view on his ideas as a whole about the article. Churchill…...

Bacterial Unknown

...The purpose of this lab was to identify an unknown species of bacteria from 29 possible unknown broth cultures. This was done by conducting a series of tests in an attempt to isolate our particular bacteria. Daily Notes Day 1 – Chose unknown bacteria #70, which is a broth culture. It is cloudy and yellow in color, with sediment gathered at the bottom. It has a strong odor, and I question whether I have smelled it before. The first test I’m doing is a Gram stain. Doing 3 slides – all air dried and heat fixed. Also streaking 2 plates today: TSA plate, and 2nd plate will be based on the results of the Gram stain. Either: MSA= isolates S. aureus, inhibits G-, EMB= fecal coliforms, G- growth (selective isolation G- rods), MAC= promotes G- growth. I am worried that I won’t be able to achieve isolation of separate colonies from the broth culture when I streak the plates. Viewed results of Gram stain with microscope under 100x oil immersion. Results of 1st Gram stain were inconclusive, so staining again with another slide. Many more cells on this slide. 2nd Gram stain = G- bacilli (rods), confirmed with Claudia. Decide to streak 2nd plate = MAC since I believe I have a G- bacteria. Day 2 – Achieved isolation on both TSA and MAC agar’s. Definite growth on MAC means I do have a G- bacteria. Will now perform a 2nd Gram stain from TSA plate to confirm Gram status; confirmed that it is G- . After looking at the chart, decided to try to narrow down options by doing...

...BOOK REVIEW UNKNOWN * Didier Van Cauwelaert Previously known as OUT OF MY HEAD Translated from the French by Mark Polizzotti This novel was made into a movie titled Unknown in 2011 (hence the re-publication of the book under that title), directed by Jaume Collet-Serra and starring Liam Neeson, Frank Langella, and Bruno Ganz This is a suspense thriller full of suspense. Once you start reading the suspense goes on increasing. But still author has created too much of confusion in the novel like skipping from one scene to another directly. The story end was also very quick. Since this novel is translated from French it has increased the confusion. Otherwise everything is good. Those who want to read something good can choose this novel. The story revolves around the man named Martin Harris a well known botanist who meets in an accident when he comes to Parris with his wife Liz. After spending three days in coma when he returns home he finds that his wife does not recognize him and another man is living in his house using his name. He tries to prove himself but in vain as he has lost all his identity documents in the taxi accident and the fake Martin Harris is having all the documents with his photo on it. He has lost every thing except his memory. With his upset face he leaves the flat. While walking only one name comes to his mind i.e. Muriel the taxi driver who looked after him when he was in coma. She agrees to help him as she feels herself responsible for his...

Unknown Bacteria

...Unknown bacteria determined to be Alcaligenes faecalis because of its morphological, physiological and metabolic properties. In a laboratory setting, it often becomes necessary to identify an unknown organism. In this experiment, researchers classified an unidentified bacterium based on its physical structure, colony morphology, optimal conditions and metabolic properties. A Gram stain using crystal violet, iodine, and safranin and a simple stain using methylene blue characterized the organism’s cell wall. Cultural behavior was classified by inoculating the organism onto nutrient agar and incubating it at 37° C for 48 hours, and observing its behavior, as well as using SIM medium to test for motility. Optimal growth temperature was determined by incubating nutrient broths of the organism at 25° C and 37° C, and optimal pH was tested by inoculating broths with pHs of 3, 7, and 10. Fluid thioglycollate medium determined the organism’s oxygen requirements. The metabolic profile was created by inoculating the bacterium into broths containing glucose, lactose, mannitol, and citrate and incubating the tubes at 25° C for 48 hours, then observing it for color change. Oxidative metabolic tests for oxidase and catalase were also performed using an oxidative reagent and hydrogen peroxide, respectively. The Enterotube II System was used to further classify its metabolic profile. The stains revealed that the bacterium was a Gram-negative bacillus. The organism was shown to be non...

Unknown Identification

...Unknown Identification Introduction to Microbiology Lab Professor M Biology Lab 1913 11/11/2014 I. Introduction A series of tests was completed in order to identify an unknown microorganism. A gram stain reaction test was done. A gram stain reaction test is used to differentiate between two bacterial species. The two species; gram positive and gram negative bacteria have varying properties of their cell wall structural composition. The gram positive bacteria contain a thick peptidoglycan layer in their cell wall which retains the primary crystal violet stain. The crystal violet is washed from the fixed stain and gram-negative bacteria appear red after the decolorizer washes the primary stain due to their more porous higher lipid content walls and the safranin counter stain adheres to their thinner cell wall. The microscopic examination of the bacteria after staining allows for the morphology of the organism to be determined because as the cell is killed during the staining process it retains its rigid structure allowing for morphology determination. A fermentation test was done. Three different carbohydrates are used to determine whether the organism can ferment a sugar as well as if a gas is produced during heterofermentation. A phenol red broth is used which retains a red color at a pH of 7.4 indicating no fermentation of a sugar. When an acid is produced during fermentation, the pH of the broth will lower and the broth will turn yellow. The...

...Jenny’s All Natural Ice Cream Shop Jennifer Kremer ACT305 – Principles of Managerial Accounting Colorado State University – Global Campus Instructor Edward Balli February 1, 2015   Jenny’s All Natural Ice Cream Shop The problem with ice cream products today is unhappy, milked to death cows. In 1946, a cow was grass fed, had milk output of 2 gallons of milk per day, and lived an average of 15 years. Modern cows are grain fed, produce 8 gallons of milk per day, and live an average of 18 months. All flavor and rich texture of real ice cream is lost in modern cow milk production. The history of milk production has led up to this poor excuse for ice cream. Ice cream is the quintessential cold treat that keeps the world going round, yet has an unknown point or origin or originator. History determines ice cream to exist as far back as 200 B.C. The bible references King Solomon’s fondness of sweet iced drinks during harvesting periods. Alexander the Great preferred honey and nectar flavored snow treats. Claudius Caesar was known for sending runners into the mountain for snow, later flavoring the snow with fruit juice. Sherbet ice cream was first recorded in the 16th century as a treat brought to Europe by Marco Polo from the far east. (IDFA, 2015). Most notable was Cream Ice, a favored dessert of the court of Charles I in the 17th Century. Historians state King Charles I paid a handsome salary of 500 pounds per year to chef DiMirco for keeping the recipe a secret...

.... Authentication is when the user provides credentials to prove identity. If these credentials can be discovered, the attacker can later use them to imper­ sonate the user. •  The second stage is when data is passed between the user and the server. If the data is sent in clear text, an attacker can capture and read the data. VPN connections use tunneling protocols to reduce the risk of data being captured. A tunneling protocol will encrypt the traffic sent over the network. This makes it more difficult for attackers to capture and read data. WAN Domain For many businesses, the WAN is the Internet. However, a business can also lease semiprivate lines from private telecommunications companies. These lines are semi­ private because they are rarely leased and used by only a single company. Instead, they are shared with other unknown companies. As mentioned in the LAN­to­WAN Domain, the Internet is an untrusted zone. Any host on the Internet with a public IP address is at significant risk of attack. Moreover, it is fully expected that any host on the Internet will be attacked. Semiprivate lines aren’t as easily accessible as the Internet. However, a company rarely knows who else is sharing the lines. These leased lines require the same level of security provided to any host in the WAN Domain. A significant amount of security is required to keep hosts in the WAN Domain safe.

...Process and Techniques of Finding Unknown J Abstract: As part of a focal study within Microbiology, many scientists have endeavored to identify the many species and types of microbes found in different environments. In an effort to categorize, understand and distinguish one microbe from another, scientists developed tests to show unique characteristics of microbes. This experiment enlists these tests, such as PCR, Simple and Gram staining, anaerobic growth tests, IMViC, Catalase, Oxidase, selective and differential media to identify an unknown microorganism. The Unknown organism studied was labeled “J” and found to be a gram negative, rod shaped bacteria that does not produce endospores. The selective and differential agars produced no growth on the MSA agar plate showing that the bacteria did not favor a salty environment of the Mannitol salts and showed an acidic by product in the selective and differential media of MacConkey’s Agar. The bacteria showed to metabolize sugars but did not produce any gaseous byproducts. After 16s rRNA was processed and run through a PCR, electricphoresis was used to run the RNA out on a gel in order to sequence the RNA which was then compared in a database. Furthermore, the Unknown J did not produce or metabolize starch. The bacteria did not react with the Citrate, KEY oxidase. When compared to other known bacteria tested, unknown J proved to be Escherichia coli. Introduction: Identifying bacterial causes for certain diseases that...

...The Unknown Citizen “He was found by the bureau of statistics to be one against whom there was no official complaint.” In Auden’s poem, “The Unknown Citizen,” he describes an individual who has been found to be without any fault. This persona is described through the perspective of a Statistician from the U.S Government. The unknown citizen served the government perfectly; when there was peace he supported it and when there was war he was ready to fight. He served the Greater Community and paid his dues to the Union. But, this man, has no identity— there is no name used to identify him. Auden then proceeds to ask the important questions in his tonal shift: “Was this man free? Was he happy?” No government statistics can ever answer these kinds of questions. Auden makes his theme clear by showing the blatant difference between the complete statistical information about the citizen compiled by the State and the lack of personal information on him. The poet conveys that statistics cannot sum up an individual and physical facts are an insufficient way to evaluate human happiness. The poet is drawing in our attention by asking these questions, the questions of freedom and happiness. He suggests that the average man is a slave to routine because he follows all the government’s standards: he buys a paper everyday, he’s married and has five children, he has everything necessary to the modern man. And because of this, it can be true that he is incapable of understanding such......

Unknown Microbes

...Microbiology is requires not only an academic understanding of the microscopic world but also a practical understanding of lab techniques and procedures used to identify, control, and manipulate microorganisms. The proper identification of a microorganism is not only important in a microbiology lab but also in the medical, industrial, and pharmaceutical fields. In this lab report, lab techniques and procedures learned during this course were performed to assess each students’ practical knowledge in microbiology. 6In area of fields I mention earlier microbiology is very important to our vaccination and antibiotics we are using, understand that microorganism play a key role in maintaining life on earth, fixing gases and breaking down dead plant and animal matter into simpler substances that are used at the beginning of the food chain 6. Biotechnologists can also exploit the activities of microbes to benefit humans, such as in the production of medicines, enzymes and food. The goal of this lab report is 1) to demonstrate comprehension of the methods and lab techniques learned during the semester 2) to explain the tests performed on each isolated unknown that led to the identification of each unknown 3) and to give a background on the characteristics, pathogenicity and some uses of one of the identified unknowns.
