The Challenges Facing Electric Utilities The electric utility industry is extremely important in the United States. In recent years, there have been many changes to this industry which has led to some interesting challenges. Some of these challenges include, “…new technologies, tighter environmental regulations, regulatory pressures and changing customer preferences” (Oskvig). These challenges are something that need to be overcome due to the urgency of their nature. A key challenge that needs to be addressed is the issue of energy that has been wasted due to lost electricity. The industry of electric utility needs to attempt to deal with the issue of lost energy. There is a huge amount, totaling to, “…a whopping $40 billion [that] is wasted in lost electricity, natural gas and water resources in the U.S. alone” (Pyper). Even though this amount includes natural gas and water resources, one can still see the great affect that this waste has on the electric utility industry. In order to fix this issue, there needs to be a better, more effective way for people to save this energy that is being wasted. Scientists must be able to develop a more reliable method for storing electric energy in order to be more efficient. With the saved energy, we will be able to become much more efficient and effective in electrical usage. All-in-all, the electric utility industry has a few issues that it needs to address in order to become as efficient as possible. Whether it be new technology, tighter regulations, regulatory pressures, changing customer demands, or storage capabilities, the issue needs to be addressed and dealt with. Due to the severe nature of this industry, an answer needs to be found and applied in a timely matter.

...When you hear the word “Class” what do you think of? When I hear that word depending on how it is being used I think of it mainly in two different aspects. The first way I think of it is in the sense of a class room setting. For example “I have to go to class”. The Other form that I think about is when it is being used to describe certain types of people. For example “There goes the wealthy class of people”. As anyone would do I decided to look up the word class and see how many different meanings the word class may have. When I looked it up I found that it had more meanings than just a class you can attend or a particular group of people. The word class can be used to describe a division. For example “ Cindy played baseball in class A for 4 years and then she finally made it to the pros.” Another way the word class can be used is to describe a year. For example :” Johnny graduated in the class of 2005”. You can also use class to describe two different things. Example “There are two different classes of detergent high efficiency and oxy.” The last definition that interest me was that you could use the word class to describe someone elegance in dress and behavior. For example “ She carries herself with a lot of class.” As I went through all the definitions I noticed that I do use the word “class” in those aspect but never really paid attention. I sat down and thought of why would those definitions come to mind when I thought of the word and I came to the......

Absence in Class

...Sir, I am Al-Furkanul Haque, you can call me Eshan. This is my 6th semester and I live in Uttara. I was absent on 27th January which was Monday. You told me to write why I was absent in previous class in 500 words. It seems to very difficult to write this in 500 words. I must have to try but I am not sure that I can do it or not. Though I am not sure, I have to try. A student can be absent for many reasons. The cause can be: care for a seriously ill family member, personal medical condition, parent is called to active duty, sleeping, traffic jam, absent-minded, some task more important than the class and so on. At first, I want to say that I am not so much insincere that I miss my class only for sleep. Accidently it can be happened if the class will be taken by someone else. How can I miss your class only for sleep? As a student, I don’t think any task can be more important than the class. On the other hand, traffic jam is one of the major problems in our daily life. Many students miss their class for traffic jam. But I am always punctual in my class. I take some extra time for on my way to recover traffic jam. I don’t miss my class for these kinds of silly reasons. I was absent because of my physical instability. I don’t know what it is called in English. I find out the word from my Bengali to English dictionary. It is called abscess in English. It gives me a lot of pain and fever. All the day I was on the bed. My sister was taking care of me.

Java Class

...Java Class MIS 304 is not a class for everyone. Not just any student should take the class. This class is structured to assist students in learning how to program using the Java language. This class does not make a student an expert in the language of Java, but instead gives the student the basic fundamentals needed to have practical use of the language and gives them a solid foundation upon which they can build if they choose to do so. The material covered in the class is adequate. Java can be a complex language to learn, but in MIS 304 one is taught the basics and nothing too detailed or complicated. The resources that are given to the students are very good. I know that the Java book used for the class is one of the best reference materials on Java that is on the market today. The lab facilities and proctors are also great resources. The only problem I feel that exists is that students don’t take advantage of the resources they have available. Students hardly look through their book for answering questions they might have. Also students hardly even bring their books to the lab when doing programs. They sometimes look for proctors to fix their problems instead of fixing it themselves. I think it should be emphasized to students that the proctors are not their to do the programs for them, but to rather help them figure out what is going wrong in their programs. Also it should be emphasized that the book should be with them when working on programs so that if questions......

...Sharish Hussain Cauley English 1102 3 March 2014 Reading Evaluation 3 – “Class” The main argument of this reading is identifiable and can easily be summarized in one or two sentences. The title and the opening few paragraphs really give away the thesis of the entire piece. The author chooses to start by diving right into his topic in the introduction. He concludes by reiterating his main point, and places a rhetorical question as the very last sentence. This is effective in this piece because it leaves the reader pondering back upon what he/she just read. The writer does provide evidence throughout the reading to support his thesis. He uses quotes from reporters and from books to back himself up. These sources do a good job at supporting his argument. They are valid and credible sources so it makes his argument stronger. He does address the opposing views by indicating why their argument is wrong however, he goes on ranting more about why he is right and not too far into details about why the opposition is in the wrong. The audience intended for this writing is most likely for a general audience because it is a topic that relates to all people of society. Perhaps the author wanted to particularly capture the attention of government officials as well as school officials as his writing is directed towards them at some specific points. The author’s credibility is strong. There is background information provided on his behalf before the introduction paragraph so the......

...communication skills play a bigger role in career achievement than technical competence, experience, or academic background. Of course, technical skill, experience, education important, but if you can’t communicate your knowledge, ideas, arguments to others… Technical skill & experience aren’t worth much. Many college courses teach written encoding skills…But this course focuses primarily on oral encoding skills… …Which are at least equally if not more important than writing skills. And I’m not just talking about public speaking. I’m talking about bettering your encoding skills in personal settings, romantic settings, intercultural settings, business settings, group settings… …So public speaking is very small portion of this class… **So talked about Sender, Receiver, Communication Channels, & Encoding… Message Decoding- Occurs when the receiver attempts to ascertain the meaning of the sender’s message.

...My First Day in English Class English is an interesting subject to me, it is also very important to us especially we as students. We did nothing much on the first day of our english class but i also gain alot of things from my first day in english class. On the first day of class i got to know that my lecturer for english is Miss Yumni Yassin. Firstly we were asked to introduce ourself. Then our lecturer set some rules and regulation for us such as '' no late comers are allowed in the class'' and we can only speak english language in our english class even to our friends. Even though its hard for some students to follow theese instruction but i think setting these rules is very good idea. Because it makes us to be more discpline and punctual. Next we are given a chance to sound out what we aspect from our english class, and how to make our english class interesting for all of us. Besides that we are also required to take out a piece of paper and a pen.Then we are require to write down which part in english are we week in. After that we were asked to send the paper to her without writting our name this is because few of the students might be shy to tell about their weakness in english language because they think they will ''lose face''. Moreover our lecturer also gave us introduction about english and explain to us which part are we going to cover in this trimester for english, she also told us the importance of grammar to us.

SECTION A - FUNDAMENTAL RULES. A.1. TYPE OF CLASS RULES. A1.1. The Melges 24 is a closed class. The intention of these rules is to ensure the boats are as identical as possible in construction, hull shape, weight, weight distribution, equipment, rigging and sail plan. It is impossible to foresee every conceivable innovation which may be thought of in the future and to mention every suggestion that has been ruled illegal in the past. When considering anything in connection with the boat or its sails or equipment which is not within established practice in the Melges 24 Class or involves the use of a material not previously used or accepted by the class or is not clearly covered by the class rules, plans or specification, you must assume that it is illegal, and must obtain a ruling from the Class Technical Committee before attempting it.

...level school by mistake (Rose 141).”The educational system is partially to blame, according to Mike Rose. Many learners will pass through high school having undergone negative elements such as fear, frustration and boredom. Mike Rose did not escape the sour side of the educational system. Rose hadn’t stayed in school for more than two months before getting a blow on his face and having his glasses broken by the English teacher who he referred to as being troubled. This was one way fear was instilled in the students' mind. During the Spanish class with the new tutor, Mr. Montez, he was not able to settle the dispute between Billy and Dweetz which ended up into a fight in the classroom. The physical exercise teacher also had a negative impact in his life. He would make students touch their ankles and spunk them to make men out of them. Therefore, this paper will try and prove that Anyon is right when he says that schools socio-economic class determines the type of instructions students receive. When you have a poor educational system, then the future generation will be poorly equipped with skills. The only way out is to get exceptional teachers who can teach students on how to make hypotheses which is one of the key requirement to survive in any job. On the other hand, the vocational education system makes students more mediocre and poor problem solvers. They are totally unprepared to go out into the world. Such students have a culture of doing anything possible to get by Most...

Emotional Intelligence, is the ability to recognize feelings, to judge which feelings are appropriate in which situations, and communicate these feeling effectively. (Woods, J. 2013 pg. 168). The quality of strength for me that relates to emotional intelligences would be dealing with emotions without being overcome by them. In the workplace, often times, I can evaluate individuals emotions, silence communication, gestures. Example: My previous position held some time ago was, Charge Processor and outside work I attend school every Saturday, for one year. Upon completion of my coding class, I pursued a position as an Outpatient Coder. In addition, my pay was increased. However, my best friend still worked in the previous office, where I transferred from. Two weeks after, I noticed that she stopped communicating with me. I began to evaluate the situation based on her emotions, and feelings to her perception to why she stop communicating. However, by channeling my feelings to continue conquering, and achieve my goals effectively. This had enhance my ability to understand how other feel without spelling it out.
