Abstract: A series of experiments derived to further understand the formation of mechanical tissue in the tendrils of Passiflora caerulea influenced by tension and contact. Breaking strength and anatomical structure where compared among other indicators of the presence of mechanical tissues. Investigation published June 1912, conducted at the University of Michigan by W.D. Brush, under the direction of Professor F.C. Newcombe.
Here in the twenty-first century, being a parent isn’t exactly what it was for our ancestors. These days many parents operate thousand-pound machines which propel them down a cement pavement at sixty miles-per-hour, hopefully for the kid’s sake, not while under the influence of alcohol or drugs. With every other advancement in society, we come to recognize more deeply how capable people are of misrepresenting themselves for profit or accept more responsibility than they are willing or able to fulfill. The time for legislation, aimed to discourage those who create an unfit family environment for their children, is long overdue. Applicants for government reproductive assistance should have to pass an IQ/Competency test to ensure the promotion of the general welfare, to recognize the need for basic parental competence, and help curb the creation of unfit families.
In Big Fish: A Novel of Mythic Proportions, by Daniel Wallace, stories are the highlight of Edward Bloom’s life. Many traditions hold stories as the highest form of enlightenment, and many families have been inspired to be involved with them. These days, we call it the “American Dream” but hold off of the mystic tales of magic and dragons. It is in our nature to compare like-things and sometimes teach our young through fables to help emphasize importances. Edward Bloom’s story defined him as a man who relentlessly told tall tales, empowered his son to believe anything was possible, persistently avoided serious matters as if afraid of their substance, and conveniently died before giving William any of his priceless answers.
I would like to explore America’s culture of corporate greed, political corruption, and the resulting kleptocracy that the people are tricked into allowing. Kleptocracy is defined as, “a government where officials are politically corrupt and financially self-interested.”(Kleptocracy, Dictionary.com) The effects of kleptocracy on any of the lower 99% of the population are blatant and could be equated to indentured servitude. Always suspicious, my fear was confirmed after my encounters in Iraq. Through multi-billion dollar deal after multi-billion dollar deal, our country has been stolen away from the people by corporations, both American as well as international. Social mobility has disappeared and Americans have accepted it. I can not even practice free speech without being ridiculed, regulated, or arrested.
With the title in mind, I begin my first interview ever with, “Father, were you always this awesome?!” A bold statement some may think, but in my family I learned quickly that the catch is the time one learns to better themselves not the kill, and I have witnessed maybe only half of this man’s amazing pursuits. Seemingly common knowledge my father repeated to me that, “it is what you make it, and opportunity is absolutely all around us at all times.” Throughout this autobiography I may refer to what many consider failures and perhaps give some the impression that my father was not successful. I will argue to my last breath that this is incorrect and one can not know success without experiencing failure. Randal Gene Lynch has touched more lives than you may know and I am proud to say is the person who guided me to my comfortable position in life now.
My name is Michael Lynch and I have found myself here today after a series of 24 years of events, actions, and decisions. I am a bit too serious much of the time but argue that this is just a symptom of my deep seated passion for what I believe or feel. I am a private contractor, I have a simple website (www.LewisvilleLynch.com) where I attempt to bring dreams to reality for a nominal fee. I do not restrict my focus to just one business venture nor do I fail to acknowledge that my entire business is dependent on customer reference and commendation. I am a work-o-holic, though, I take every opportunity to ensure that the work I am doing is not unpleasant, working smarter not harder is the key to a healthy and productive workforce if your into that sort of thing.
Anyone in America can tell you the debt ceiling is approaching the maximum if it has not already. For far too long we have been writing checks our butts can not cash. Our current government can speak first hand about the increasing accountability the people demand and their inability to deliver on such a request. I believe we have become entirely too comfortable with credit and the indentured servitude that comes with it. Many can argue but at the end of the day the numbers do not lie. No one really cares about the government until it steps in between them and their fifty-seven inch television purchased on credit. This explains why a debt ceiling would be a good debate to calm the nerves of middle class america. People can talk all day on what we should have to fix our problems but chances are not a single one of them can budget for some of the medical precedures they will, personally, need.
Every opinion is, in essence, a fork in the road for the civil society. Republicans and Democrats are the fork in the road right after Democracy and, ”have no constitutional issue between them.”(Ask Me, OntheIssues.org) These two parties share only the things that lead to Democracy, but after that they are nearly polar in all aspects. In the most basic ways Republicans will have a conservative philosophy, whereas Democrats will be liberal. Republicans, “approach is Darwinian in that the strong shall survive, cream rises to the top, etc,” and Democrats focus on civil services to help those who can not help themselves. (Democrat vs. Republican, Diffen) My comparison in the two would be that a Democrat is a family man whereas, a Republican is a businessman.
Statistics on the amount of trash the average american creates in any given day is easily debatable however we all will agree its entirely too much, especially when its our turn to take out the garbage. In the past, waste products of our lives were simply discarded and buried to initiate the cycle of bio-degradation, but as our technology advanced we began to manufacture more and more compounds that do not decompose biologically. Plastics are the primary compounds that resist natural decomposition, though, there are others such as glass and styrofoam. At this point it is fair to say all things will decompose eventually but many highly refined products deliberately designed not to end up taking much too long to with respect to production levels. My challenge is to bring my landfill-able waste to a sustainable level with which I can share with my peers because, “Just like those who scheduled the trains carrying Jews to Nazi concentration camps were committing crimes against humanity, so are those who understand and use science for their own benefit and yet argue that virtually all of the scientists are wrong about Global Warming.”(Pro Waste - No Trash Diet, Notrashdiet.com)
When comparing science fiction films one can say the sky is the limit. The content of such films vary from director to director and verisimilitude is not always necessary. To maximize the recognition of the piece we will compare major grossing films and their elements. Star Wars, Alien, and E.T. all fall into the genre of science fiction films however all portray polar opinions in the most basic of concepts like aliens....
The cinema has always had major breakthroughs as new technology brought along more advanced cameras or projectors. I agree that, "For moviegoers in the PG-13 and R ranges, it only rarely provides an experience worth paying a premium for." Even as the case may be, I support 3D technology as experimental and the path to a better future.
