Essay (A) The Pre-Engineering Academy is most significant to me because it is allowing me to see exactly what I will be doing in college for my career. Someday I hope to receive a bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering and then further my education with getting a bachelor’s degree in Architecture and receive my masters in Mechanical Engineering. The academy has brought me to realize just how hard becoming an engineer can be. Between deadlines and working in a group, I cannot tell which should be considered worse. Working in groups is not that bad, although the communication between everyone is. Making sure every single person has a clear understanding of what is supposed to be happening can cause the most trouble. Asking a person over and over again will not get you anywhere; some people are shy and just refuse to say anything while the people that are outgoing and could care less about talking to stranger will not hush. The question “Do you understand?” is rhetorical. You never know until you actually start. The Engineering Academy has opened my mind to

    In Peter A. Brown’s “Restoring Perspective: $1,000 for the Prom Is Immoral”, I believe he is attempting to show the importance of the morality of money and I think in made the prom his main point. My hero is the principal, who canceled his school's senior prom, not just to prevent underage drinking and sex at post-event parties, but also to make the kids and parents consider how they spend their money. It is the best recent example of an authority figure standing up to both the culture of conspicuous consumption and of rights without responsibilities. When teenagers, or for that matter adults, think it is the norm to spend $200 on tennis shoes, $250 on blue jeans and $5 on a cup of coffee, it's no wonder our society has lost its sense of perspective (Burton, 2011, pg. 9). What Kenneth Hoagland, the principal at Kellenberg Memorial High School in Uniondale, N.Y., did in refusing to accept the excesses of the prom, which he rightly labeled “an exaggerated rite of passage that verges on decadence,” was demonstrate common sense. Hoagland rightly thought that there is something innately wrong with students spending $1,000 or more on their prom outfit, flowers, limousines and the rest. And that didn't count the cost of the post-prom parties at beach houses or “booze cruises” that students attended, where the use of alcohol and the lack of supervision created “a time of heightened sexuality in a culture of anything goes,” as he put it. Kellenberg High School, he said, “Is willing to sponsor a prom, but not an orgy” (Burton, 2011, pg. 9).…

    John Brown was a man starkly opposed to slavery. In 1855, John Brown led an unsuccessful raid on Harper 's Ferry in order to arm slaves with weapons Brown and his men seized from the arsenal in order for the slaves to free themselves. Because this was against law of the time, John Brown was tried and executed for treason. Due to his methods, many people labeled him as a terrorist; however, because he worked for a good cause, the abolition of slavery, John Brown can be seen as a Revolutionary who used forceful methods.…

    Learning to cope with others is really necessary if you need to work in groups because you need to stand out in group and show others that you will take leading role in groups but in the same time you need to hear thoughts from others and try to prove them that everyone is necessary in work and that all need to do as much as possible.…

    Initially, I had a negative view on group working because of the challenges that I had. When I was in high school, my five other friends and I used to work together in a music competition. Although we were supposed to get together to practice for the event, we were only able to meet up once a week. In addition to having a hard time with time scheduling, we often did not have a consensus of opinion. Whenever we had a discussion, we usually ended up with no results. So it always took a long time for us to make a decision. Consequently, the performance did not turn out as well as we expected. Because of this initial failure, I thought group work was time consuming and ineffective. However, I have changed my opinion lately because of the successful results in some of my laboratory classes. In each laboratory assignment, it is nearly impossible to work by myself because there are a lot of steps and each step needs to be very precise and accurate. Therefore, a group of two or three students will work more effectively compared to an individual because they can help to remind each other and finish the assignment faster. Based on those experiences, one more time I give myself a chance to work in a group and figured out how work effectively. Finally, thank to the Small group communication class, I found out that group work can become very productive if all the members in the group cooperate and follow the principles of small group communication. In this paper, I want to talk…

    Group work is something that has been hit or miss in the work or school world for a very long time. There is a very negative attitude about group work the second it is assigned. The truth is that group work can actually make the performance of the individuals go down but, there are also very positive aspects to group work that many people don’t usually think of. In this paper, I will explore some of the pros and cons to group work, look at some possible solutions to the problems, and I will reflect on some of the past experiences I have had in group work.…

    “Do NOT move!” “What do you think you are doing?” BANG!! These are some of the word said by Officer Ferguson during the scuffle with 18-year old Michael Brown. Some may say it was a matter of race, while others say it was a matter of self-defense. No matter what a black man was shot by a white officer and that cannot be changed. Well, why not stun Brown with pepper spray or taze him, some say. At this time Ferguson felt that his pepper spray would not be a help and did not have his tazer. The only other option he had was his gun. Now there are to different stories circulating around the news and other social media. One is that Michael Brown Calmly put his hands up and walked slowly away from the officer looking to cause no harm, but the other story is that Brown seemed to think he could overpower the officer and reached to still his weapon after being confronted. Two completely different stories told by two completely different types of people. The people on Michael Brown’s side believe he calmly surrendered which makes the case seem more like a race issue, while people defending Officer Ferguson believe he had every right to fire at Brown.…

    A martyr is defined as a person who is put to death or endures great suffering on behalf of any belief, principle, or cause. To many people back in eighteen fifty-nine, this defined a man named John Brown in many ways. John Brown was a devoted abolitionist who had been important in the conflict of slavery in Kansas. In October of eighteen fifty-nine, Brown led an interracial group of men who took over a federal arsenal in Harper’s Ferry, Virginia, hoping to spark a slave revolt. To his dismay, Brown and some of his followers were captured after a gunfight with federal troops. He was later tried and found guilty for murder, treason, and conspiracy. Browns actions and execution led many people to believe he was in fact a “martyr”.…

    The years directly before the civil war were marked by escalating tensions and sharply declining relations between the North and South as differences between the two territories were made clear. John Brown's raid in October of 1859 came at that volatile time and provoked an extreme reaction from the South immediately afterward; as the furious public option of the South was that the entire North had personally supported and condoned Brown and his violent actions in the ultimate quest of abolition. From that point, as feelings in the North and South were pushed to the edge by other events, the views on John Brown and his actions, especially the opinion of the North, also began to change, illustrating the shift toward the worse and changing North-South relations. John Brown, at first regarded as a fanatic abolitionist, rose to heights of heroism and martyrdom as hostility grew and war broke out.…
