Heron of Alexandria Another worker in applied mathematics belonging to the period under consideration was Heron of Alexandria. His much disputed date, with possibilities ranging from 150 BC to 250 AD, has recently been plausibly placed in the second half of the first century AD. His works on mathematical and physical subjects are so numerous and varied that it is customary to describe him as an encyclopedic writer in these fields. There are reasons to suppose he was an Egyptian with Greek traini
history of computers A Brief History of Computers Computers have a long history, starting with the invention of the abacus, which allowed for simple mathematics calculations. Blaise Pascal builtthe first digital computer in 1692, which could perform addition. Other inventors and scientists became interested in the idea of computers, and more calculators were invented that could perform more sophisticated functions, had a memory function, and could even print. There was a temporary loss of intere
history of the computer Konrad Zuse, a German engineer, completes the first general purpose progammable calculator in 1941. He pioneers the use of binary math and boolean logic in electronic calculation. Colossus, a British computer used for code-breaking, is operational by December of 1943. ENIAC, or Electronic Numerical Integrator Analyzor and Computer,is developed by the Ballistics Research Laboratory in Maryland to assist in the preparation of firing tables for artillery.

hoover dam The construction of Hoover Dam is considered to be one of America’s finest engineering achievements. However the dam that rose from the floor of Black Canyon was not only a structural accomplishment, it was a proposition firmly rooted in practicalities. The necessity of such a dam had been obvious for more than two decades. The Colorado River’s cycles of drought and flood in the American southwest incapacitated the growth of the agricultural industry. It was felt that a dam that could

HRM Hot Essays And Papers In Mrs. Burrows seventh grade English class, I wrote a paper entitled Women vs. Men in the Work Force. I researched for weeks and weeks to get all of the information I could on pay differences, percentages of working women and what jobs they were doing. In 1988, my paper focused on sexual discrimination and the wage difference. For example, in 1998, women received 63% of the pay men received for the same job. I remember finding that out and asking my dad why that was
Hungs I chose to find the entomology of a word that most people can usually not go through a day without using at least once, computer. With the explosion of the personal computer in the last ten years, most households in America own at least one. However, the meaning of the word computer has changed in the last century. The word itself is found in text as far back as 1646 when Sir T. Brown said, The calendars of these computers. The use of computer in this sense, as defined by the OED, is

Incas1 The Incan Civilization The Inca were originally a small warlike tribe inhabiting the south highland region of the Cordillera Central in Peru. In about 1100AD they began to move into the valley of Cuzco, where, for roughly the next 300 years, they raided and imposed tribute on neighboring civilizations. Until the middle of the 15th century, the Inca undertook no major imperialistic expansion, their farthest advance prior to this time was southward about 32 km (about 20 mi.) from Cuzco in t
Indians Immigrating to America Their homeland has the second largest population in the world, yet in America they form one of our smallest minorities. Americans were influenced by their beliefs long before the first immigrants arrived, and an important interchange of ideas has continued to the present day. Although many came to America as early as the turn of the century, they were denied citizenship until a congressional act granted it in 1946. Now they are students and teachers in our universi
internet security overview 1 Introduction The recent acceleration in the uptake of electronic commerce (e-commerce) over the Internet has focused the need for methods to be developed by which to securely transfer data over what amounts to a worldwide public network. The most commonly cited example of this requirement is the ability of customers to make electronic purchases from company Web sites using debit cards such as VISA cards. Public confidence in e-commerce has to be high for it to succee

is it right to clone humans After reading an essay entitled Is it right to clone a human?, I felt like I should give some information along with a more realistic view on the topic. This essay, written by Charlie Cho, is about the new technology of cloning and gives a lot of misconceptions as reasons to ban its research and future use forever. The essay makes many clear points as to why we should ban cloning. Cho states that we would be unable to decide whom these people belong to and if we use t

John D Rockefeller John D. Rockefeller controlled almost 90% of oil refineries in US. He pursued several successful and dishonest plans to accumulate capital. He would secretly buy up or create new oil related companies such as engineering and pipeline firms. Rockefeller secretly controlled the firms and gave Standard Oil, there were hidden rebates.

Kierkegaard Søren Kierkegaard Søren Aabye Kierkegaard (b.1813, d. 1855) was a profound and prolific writer in the Danish golden age of intellectual and artistic activity. His work crosses the boundaries of philosophy, theology, psychology, literary criticism, devotional literature and fiction. Kierkegaard brought this potent mixture of discourses to bear as social critique and for the purpose of renewing Christian faith within Christendom. At the same time he made many original conceptual cont

Leonardo Da Vinci1 Leonardo Da Vinci was born in the year 1452 in a town called Vinci. His name -Da vinci- actually means from the town of Vinci. At fifteen Leonardo moved to Florence with his father. His father recognized Leonardo\'s artistic talents, and showed them to his good friend, Andrea del Verrocchio. Verrocchio was a painter and a sculptor. Verrocchio was so impressed when he saw Leonardo\'s work that he took Leonardo to be his apprentice at the young age of only about fifteen. In 1472

Leonardo Renaissance Man The great turning point of Western civilization called the Renaissance, the rebirth of literature, art, architecture, and philosophy in Europe, marked the emergence of the modern world from the dark ages (Aston 11). The Renaissance caused educated Europeans to develop new attitudes about themselves and the world around them. This intellectual cultural awaking influenced European thinking by a concept of humanism, which emphasized the worth of an individual (Aston 12). Th

Literary Utopian Societies “The vision of one century is often the reality of the next…” (Nelson 108). Throughout time, great minds have constructed their own visions of utopia. Through the study of utopias, one finds that these “perfect” societies have many flaws. For example, most utopias tend to have an authoritarian nature (Manuel 3). Also, another obvious imperfection found in the majority of utopias is that of a faulty social class system (Thomas 94). But one must realized that the flaws f

Max Weber Sicence as A Vocation ÿMax Weber struggled to discover a vantage point from which he could objectively analyze and view the world. Weber sought to demystify the ideological constraints found within social institutions of society. Within the excerpted chapter Science as a Vocation, Weber investigates the social dynamics of natural science: its place within understanding of the modern world and its contributions and limitations as an academic vocation. Moreover, Weber dismisses the posit

Moneys Influence in American Society The driving force behind American society is money. People plan their lives around it, and it plans out people’s lives. Someone is considered to be successful, not by how hard he works or by how happy he is, but by how much money he has made. Americans lust over it so greatly that most criminal actions are committed in an attempt to get more of it. The captivating beauty of cupidity determines the course of people’s lives, shapes what companies produce, and d

nanotechnology Computers reproduce information at almost no cost. A push is well underway to invent devices that manufacture at almost no cost, by treating atoms discretely, like computers treat bits of information. This would allow automatic construction of consumer goods without traditional labor, like a Xerox machine produces unlimited copies without a human retyping the original information. Electronics is fueled by miniaturization. Working smaller has led to the tools capable of manipulatin
