Changing with the Wind

As time passes, there are many things that change with it. Some changes bring out a positive outcome, and the rest, are the ones that ought to be regretted. There has been a change of behavior in the men of present time with respect to our parents’ generation. Some changes have made men succeed more than their parents but some have made them careless of what goes around in the world surrounding them. Men have become more self-obsessed and disrespectful of their parents. On the other hand, the determination to achieve remains the same for all men. The behavior of present men as compared to their parents’ generation has changed a lot in terms of attitude and habits, but their drive to succeed remains the same.
Back in the old days, men used to only think about their families, friends and parents. Men of this present generation have become more self-conscious than their older generation. They tend to think about themselves more and more as time passes. Men nowadays care too much about how they look, how they dress, how they talk and even how they eat, whereas all this was uncommon in the older generation. Men have started to care more about the cars they drive, the watches they wear and the perfumes they put on; all of these situations do put the modernized man in much troubles such as credit debts etc. Self-obsession, by itself is not a major change in men, it is those other factors too that change the behavior of men overall. The older generation lived a much simpler and happier life back then unlike the men of the robotic age.
Nowadays men have unhealthy habits such as eating junk food, wasting of time in front of the television and the addiction to the technology. Present men eat too much junk food and they don’t prefer having a healthy diet. However, the older generation had a diet that included non-processed food which made them live…...

...Changing All great changes are preceded by chaos. A dynamic character is someone who changes; static characters stay the same. In middle school I was immature, in my transformation I became mature. Most people change from middle school to high school. You change by realizing things, maturing or just growing up. Well not for me, something happened that helped me transform into the person I am today. To begin with, if you knew my personality in middle school, it is nothing, as I am perceived today. I was immature and constantly got in trouble. I didn’t care what the teacher had to say and I would make it difficult for other students to learn. Lets just say I was more of a nuisance then a pleasure to have in class. I was always a bright student, some how managed to only get one B and the rest A’s through middle school. Considering I was rarely in class due to my comportment during class. The biggest immaturity part of middle school was how I got in trouble. It wasn’t as if I was selling drugs or anything terrible! I would get in trouble for doing immature actions as going to the bathroom for twenty minutes, not being in my seat and most importantly talking! Speaking out in class was the biggest issues for me as I was in middle school. See you might ask how did you get twenty-three referrals during eighth grade when you weren’t there for two months due to surgery. After every day seeing the most irritating kid you’ve ever come across you might realize how I got referrals for......

Disadvantages 4. Conclusion Wind Energy 3 Introduction In light of concern owing to depletion of fossil based fuels it is emerging that wind energy is receiving considerable thought as a solution to the looming energy crisis. The Australian Cooperative Research Centre (CRC) for Renewable Energy (ACRE) was established in July 1996 with a goal of undertaking research on issues of power generation, storage and conditioning, energy efficiency, system integration and policy analysis (Smith 2008). The goal of the Australian government to attain a renewable energy target of 2% by the year 2010 caused a dramatic interest in wind energy within the country (Paulson 2001). Advantages With the current focus on global climate issues wind energy has been found to be very advantageous as it is produced naturally (Wagner & Mathur 2009). The process of production involves manipulation of a naturally available resource (wind power) and thus does not pollute the air. It is known that power plant rely on combustion of fossil fuels and thus pollute the environment. Turbines do not produce any pollutants (Wagner & Mathur 2009). Another advantage with wind energy is that unlike fossil fuels which are geographically isolated to specific regions, wind energy is available in almost all regions of the world......

Wind Energy

...WIND ENERGY I. Concept: _ Wind is the movement of air from an area of high pressure to an area of low pressure. In fact, wind exists because the sun unevenly heats the surface of the Earth. As hot air rises, cooler air moves in to fill the void. As long as the sun shines, the wind will blow. And as long as the wind blows, people will harness it to power their lives. _ The terms "wind energy" or "wind power" describe the process by which the wind is used to generate mechanical power or electricity. This mechanical power can be used for specific tasks (such as grinding grain or pumping water) or a generator can convert this mechanical power into electricity to power homes, businesses, schools, and the like. II. Operating principle: _ Wind power is extracted from air flow using wind turbines or sails to produce mechanical or electrical power. Ancient mariners used sails to capture the wind and explore the world. Farmers once used windmills to grind their grains and pump water. Today, more and more people are using wind turbines to wring electricity from the breeze. Over the past decade, wind turbine use has increased at more than 25 percent a year. _ Most wind energy comes from turbines that can be as tall as a 20-story building and have three 200-foot-long (60-meter-long) blades. These contraptions look like giant airplane propellers on a stick. The wind spins the blades, which turn a shaft connected to a generator that produces electricity. Other turbines work......

Gone with the Wind

...but it’s something that we need to change in society. Everyone should be treated equally. People are born a certain race and they cannot change that. Just because someone is a certain race people need to respect the person for who they are and not judge them based on their race. There is a Bavarian saying that they live by “Mia San Mia” which stands for we are who we are and they live their lives by that and respect each other. That’s something that is not seen in the United States. Birth of a Nation, Gone with the Wind, Burn!, and Spartacus are a good representation of how America’s view on slavery and the mixing of races changed over time. Birth of a Nation was made in 1915 when segregation was still huge in American society. Burn! was made in 1969 which was right after the Civil Rights Act of 1968 was passed. It’s a big time frame to look at but it gave a good understanding on how viewpoints changed over time. The films Birth of a Nation and Gone with the wind were made 25 years apart and mainly took place during the reconstruction period after the civil war. But they both presented different viewpoints on the issues. The first main theme brought up in Birth of a Nation was the mixing of races. In the opening scene the film African-Americans are coming to America and being sold to whites as slaves. During that scene a text overlay appeared on the screen and it said “the bringing of the African to American planted the first seed of disunion.” This in my opinion was the......

Wind Energy

...are discussing the topic of wind energy. The reading starts out by mentioning the wind is good and it is a renewable resource. The wind is available everywhere. In United States, 20 percent of the electricity could be provided by wind power. However, the speaker argues by mentioning the amount of energy produced by wind power, it is unpredictable because it can spread out. Wind power does not generate if wind is not strong enough. Moreover, not everywhere that turbine for generator can be installed. The reading continues by bringing up the point of the cost of wind energy. Wind energy is affordable compare to coal, oil, and gas because the wind is free. Alternatively, the speaker once again resists this idea by the initial investment for produce wind energy is expensive. A generator for produce wind energy needs location and land that big enough for a machine. Land is very expensive and hard to find. Furthermore, a generator will be built in a farm far from the city. It needs to build a transmission line to transfer the energy from farm to city. These can cost a large amount of money. The final point made by the reading is wind power is safe and environmentally friendly. The wind energy does not cause greenhouse gases or other pollutants. Comparing to other source of fuel such as coal, oil, and gases, wind is cleaner. So, it helps reduce causes of global warming and it will lead to better health of populations. Whereas, the speaker says that wind energy has a negative......

Wind Turbines

...Wind Turbines: As the demand for energy is constantly increasing, due to an ever increasing congested population, mankind finds itself in a predicament, where do we continue to source the needed power to run our world. The old 20th century industrial age response is no longer applicable to modern day society, whereby; coal, gas and other non renewable limited resources are depleting. The 21st century has been presented with this detrimental world altering issue. Thankfully we now live in what is known as the technological era. This new century brought about with it new ideas and new developments- accordingly it is these developments in thinking and resources that will pave the way for alternate sources of power. New responses to this ever-present issue include hyrdo-electricity, a legitimate and controllable sources of power, solar power; another renewable resource whose presence is ever increasing in today’s developing world. Arguably the most efficient form of renewable and environmentally friendly energy is wind power. The ability to harness the power generated by the winds. The concept of harnessing the power of wind is no new invention, not even relatively new, in fact the idea has been around since 5000B.C whereby it was first utilized by the early Egyptians to propel their boats down the Nile river. Over the centuries, advancements to the concept continued and by 200B.C simple windmills in china were being developed to pump water for irrigation whilst the middle...

Winds of Change

...Winds of Change Sonya Marquis BUS440-801 Introduction Wind energy is a renewable resource, which means that future supply will not be affected by current use. The rising concerns about global warming, pollution, and depletion of natural resources makes wind a viable and logical source of energy for the near and distant future. There are many advantages to wind energy; it is a sustainable energy source that is non-polluting. With a 30 percent annual increase, wind is the world’s fastest-growing bulk power electricity source. Montana has a bright future in wind energy. The American Wind Energy Association ranked Montana’s wind-energy potential in the top five in the nation. Currently, the state has several utility-scale wind farms in operation. History of Wind Energy Wind energy has been used by civilizations throughout time. As early as 5000 B.C., wind energy propelled boats up and down rivers. Simple windmills pumped water in China in 200 B.C. Wind energy technology and its applications continued to grow and diversify throughout the ages. By the late 19th century, settlers of the New World were using windmills to pump water, and eventually, to generate electricity. Small windmills were used until the late 1920s to bring electricity to rural Americans. Farm and ranch communities in Montana used wind generators that produced direct current (DC) electricity that was often stored in batteries. However, these systems were short-lived due to the Rural......

Wind Energy

...carbon dioxide which is a destructive greenhouse gas, it has historically dragged its feet when it comes to alternative energy. Wind energy is arguably the most important alternative energy source currently available. It is relativity inexpensive, abundant, and climate-benign, and most importantly, inexhaustible. By 2020, wind energy is expected to provide for half of Europe’s energy needs. The world’s wind-generating capacity is currently growing by 29 percent a year. Figueroa 2 According to a study conducted by the Department of Energy, the states of North Dakota, Kansas, and Texas alone receive enough wind to provide electricity for the entire nation. By the same token, offshore wind farms could provide enough energy to power the entire nation. Wind energy systems require very little maintenance, and could potentially produce electricity for as little as $0.02 per kilowatt-hour. The average US household consumes about 10,000 KWh of electricity each year. Fact, a 250-kw turbine installed at the elementary school in Spiril Lace, Iowa, provides an average of 350,000 KWh of electricity per year, more than is necessary for the 53,000-square-foot school. We have the potential to generate enough energy to meet our needs in such a way that is beneficial to both humanity and the environment. So why are we not developing wind power concept sooner rather than later? Figueroa 3 Authors: Morley, David C., and Rich, Alex K. Title: Point:......

Power by the Wind

...Power by the Wind 1 Power by the Wind Power by the Wind covers the topic of wind energy. There is a large sector in our country that believes wind energy is an excellent alternative resource, including myself. There is also a group of people that believe that the wind turbines that are used to generate wind energy is a bad idea because they obstruct the natural view, causes death to birds, and generates noise pollution. They also argue that wind energy is not a dependable source of energy because the wind does not blow continually. I will explain the long history of wind energy and the methods that have been used to harness it. I will also look at wind energy from a positive and negative perspective. A Long History: The human relationship with the wind has been a long one with the use of sailing ships and windmills. For centuries past the wind was used as the main power source for sailing ships. The use of windmills seems to have started with the Persians for grinding grain (between 500 and 900 A.D.). Windmills started appearing in Europe around the time of the Crusades (1096 -1270). The European design is very different from the Persian one Power by the Wind 2 and there is an ongoing debate whether the Europeans developed the windmill themselves or the Crusaders had taken the idea back to Europe. The earliest windmills found in Europe were a post mill construction. The main structure of the windmill sits on top of a post......
