First Year of College

...So far my community college experience has been the pretty interesting. I have enjoyed the freedom, my coursework, and all the new friends I’ve made. When I first started college, I wasn’t excited at all. I just knew that the work wasn’t going to be as difficult as a university and I basically saw the whole idea as a joke. I see now that everything I thought about the school was just a simple minded. Not only is this the same environment as a university but they have the same type of activities as well. I have not a doubt in my mind that going to a junior college prior to attending a university will set me up for the utmost success. My first year at TCC was an eye opening experience of what college life was really going to be like. There was so much more freedom than in high school. When you have to use the restroom or make a phone call, permission is not needed, everything is on your time. When you miss a class, nobody is going to call your mother or give her an update on how your classes are going. As a matter of fact, I soon found out that your parents aren’t even allowed access to your grades unless granted permission by you. I believe this is right around the time I started loving college life. If you party all night and don’t feel like going to class the next day, you don’t have to, but it is still your responsibility to get your work. This has bought me to my next subject, responsibility. Unlike high school, teachers do not care if you pass or fail, they do not care......

Dutt S Case Study

...10, 2006 DUTT’S FOUNDRY – PART-I Sunil Dutt knew he had to make up his mind fast. Later in the evening Anil Tripathi would be calling up, and Dutt was expected to give his final answer to Tripathi’s request for advising the large tube manufacturing complex at Indore. Dutt knew that the substantial monthly consultancy fees would provide much needed revenue for the Caltech team at Jamshedpur. By being away at Indore he would also avoid the constant clashes with his co-promoter A. Chakravarthy. But it would also mean that his absence could have a serious impact on the project implementation activities and jeopardize the basic idea with which he and his colleagues had left jobs and started their venture, Caltech. The Early Years Dutt was born in a middle class family in Jamshedpur, where his father was a doctor working with the Tatas. His father was a disciplinarian and inculcated values of hard work, integrity, family commitment and social consciousness in his children. Due to an untimely accident Dutt’s father had become incapacitated, and as the eldest child. Dutt was forced to accept partial responsibility for his younger brothers and sisters. He gave up his childhood dream of becoming an engineer, and instead started working with TISCO (now called Tata Steel) immediately after passing Intermediate Science. Dutt’s passion about technological innovations and his high commitment to action soon started being noticed by senior management in TISCO. This case was prepared by......

...Twenty years earlier, he explains, he and his friend had dinner at a restaurant called "Big Joe" Brady's, which used to be located where the hardware store stands. The officer confirms that this was the site of the restaurant up until five years earlier, when it was torn down. At the time of their last meal together, the man continues, he was eighteen years old and his friend Jimmy was twenty. The two had grown up together and were the closest of friends, but the man was leaving the next morning to go out to the West to find his fortune, and Jimmy was the type of person who would never leave New York. After eating their dinner that night, they agreed that no matter where they were or what they were doing, they would both do all they could to return to that same spot at that exact same time, ten o'clock, exactly twenty years later. The officer expresses interest, asking why they had been in contact so seldom over the past twenty years. The man briefly explains that he has been busy in the West trying to make his fortune. He checks the time on his watch, which is adorned with diamonds, indicating that he has been successful in his business endeavors. The time is three minutes before ten o'clock, the precise moment that they are scheduled to meet. The officer stays a few minutes more, and it is after ten o'clock when he says goodbye and leaves.

The performance was measured over a series of 3 different tests using .Net and Java’s high performance timers and our own modules to measure CPU utilization and Memory usage. In all our tests Java RMI had the best performance times. 1 1 Introduction The creation of software has been evolving strongly over the past few years.

These will be described on an abstract level which will help understanding and explaining the results of the performance measurement later on. After the introduction of Java and .Net middleware, their performance measurement will be introduced. An overview of which measurements were done, and why, followed by the results of these measurements will reveal the performance aspects of Java and .Net middleware. By looking back at the architecture of both Java and .Net Middleware, conclusions can be......

First Year Reflection

...As my first semester at Babson College is coming to an end, I’m in complete disbelief. To think that I travelled 8,122 miles, 3 months and 11 days to get to this point in my life is mind-boggling. It seems like it was only yesterday that I was standing at Park Manor South, waving to my family and shedding some tears. At that moment, I had begun a new journey, a new chapter, a new family, and a new home. During my first semester at Babson, I faced a few challenges. First off, there was an undertone of a culture shock throughout these four months. I could not keep up with the topics my peers were talking about, or did not know certain ‘slang’ words they used, making it hard for me to be involved in a conversation! But now, I embrace my diversity rather than feeling out of place at times. I cherish my culture and display it out in the open because my roots make up who I am, here at Babson. Another challenge I faced was the weather! I come from a very warm city in India, and facing below-freezing temperatures definitely is not my cup of tea. I am used to it now though and am looking forward to Boston’s first snow fall! Another challenge I have faced at Babson is homesickness. I have never been away from my family for more than six weeks! Day by day, Babson has started to morph into exactly what I miss so much – home. I came into college with a mindset that everything is going to be nerve-wracking, scary and overwhelming. While all of this is true, a sense of familiarity is......

Why Did a Campaign for Women's Suffrage Develop in the Years After 1870?

...Why Did a Campaign for Women's Suffrage Develop in the Years after 1870? The most important reason for the development of a campaign for women's suffrage after 1870 is the number of reforms that were taking place. This is important because women were involved in many of these campaigns so they were encouraged that they would be able to win suffrage for themselves. A campaign for women's suffrage developed in the years after 1870 due to several reasons. Women's necessity and craving for suffrage can partly explain the campaign, although it is also significant to consider why a campaign or fight was necessary, along with the reasons why this began after 1870. The primary reason women wanted suffrage was because of their inferior status to men. They wanted to improve this. For example women were not allowed to attend schools or colleges limiting their chances of becoming someone important and well respected in society. Their job range was very limited they could either work in mills, farms or stay at home and look after the house however the poor women were unable to stay home to look after the house, as they had to work to bring in income to support their families. This led to a campaign for women's suffrage because they were not happy about being treated as slaves. The men were the slave-masters and the women were the slaves. They wanted to change this so they could live independently and not to rely on men. But this would only happen if they were able to get education so......
