College Transfer Success
4/27/2015

Dear 2015 freshman
Welcome to Louisburg College! My name is John Dodd Jr. I am current student here at Louisburg and I am here to give you advice on your 1st semester here at this college. This college is a very close -knit community in a small town that’s close to just about anything. We have very small class sizes and teachers that get to know our students on a more personal level. This maximizes your confidence asking for help and getting good grades here. This college is not a 4 year university, but a 2 year college. Thus saying you can come here and transfer out into any college of your choice. As a current student at the college, I know that this can be complicated, overwhelming, or sometimes frustrating. So as a result of this, as a freshman you are required to take class dealing with this alone! This class is called College Transfer Success and will help become a better student and help with transferring to college of your choice. If you have the choice of choosing a teacher for this class, I recommend you get Dr. Louise Mitchum. Although all the teachers here are great I personally recommend her because she is really good at what she does. She will always push you to your greatest potential, and nothing less. By taking this class I’ve learned a lot about becoming a better student. By taking this class I addressed my strengths as well as my weaknesses as a student. In the beginning of class we get to know our learning styles, how we take in information, etc. by using tools out of the text book. Some tools we used were the Vark test, and the Holland Code. The work VARK is an acronym that stands for visual, aurial, reading and writing, and Kinesthetic. This will determine how you learn personally. The Holland code is personality test that determines what kind of person you are. These are one of…...

Vincent Van Gogh

...Vincent Van Gogh Vincent Van Gogh is a world-renowned artist famous for paintings such as Sunflowers, many of his self portraits, and Starry Night; the painting that will be discussed later. Van Gogh was diagnosed with several mental and physical disorders. The disorders he suffered from include; manic depression, epilepsy, and bipolar disorder. Through these disorders and problems Van Gogh produced some of the most amazing and popular works of art seen through out the world today. Could Van Gogh’s illnesses be the cause for the certain styles and colors he used in his paintings? Or was it his time period that influenced his style of paintings? Vincent Van Gogh’s illnesses, failures, and the post-impressionist era greatly influenced his style and methods of painting. It is proven time and time again that Vincent van Gogh’s many diagnosed illnesses have greatly influenced his paintings. Van Gogh suffered from many diagnosed diseases and problems such as Lead poisoning, Epilepsy, and Manic Depression. These diseases could have greatly altered the way he painted, the colors he used, and the theme of his paintings. He also may have suffered other diseases or mental issues that were never discovered by doctors or by his family. We will never completely know what exactly went on in the mind of Vincent Van Gogh. “Lead poisoning occurs when lead builds up in the body, often over a period of months or years. Even small amounts of lead can cause serious health problems. At very......

Van Gogh

...Van Gogh Vincent van Gogh’s stay in Arles greatly influenced him, his emotions, and the way he viewed the world and we can see that through the way his artwork changed when he moved there. The color in his work grew more vibrant, and he started really developing the classic style that he is famous for. It is clear that the vibrant sunlight inspired van Gogh in his dominant use of yellows in his works done here. I feel that van Gogh felt feelings of excitement, happiness, and vibrancy of life to move to a place where he enjoyed, especially being the smoker and drinker he was. The scope of his work also grew, as he began to paint many things such as grander landscapes of the area. Van Gogh is an artist greatly influenced by the impressionist style, and his own work later became known as post impressionism. He would let his intense emotions take over his paintings and used color to convey emotion rather than to document reality. It is clear that his work celebrated life and universal harmony as a whole. In his most famous painting of all, Starry Night, the shapes and colors he used created an elemental harmony. It is clear he painted a world in which he dreamed existed, a utopia of sorts, filled with peace and tranquility. Today, van Gogh’s work has become one of the most recognizable in all of history. It is extremely popular and I think part of the reason is the beauty of what he created and, specifically with Starry Night, because he did it with a dream like......

Von Neumann

...reference to the "von Neumann architecture" as a basis for comparison. And of course this is so, since virtually every electronic computer ever built has been rooted in this architecture. The name applied to it comes from John von Neumann, who as author of two papers in 1945 [Goldstine and von Neumann 1963, von Neumann 1981] and coauthor of a third paper in 1946 [Burks, et al. 1963] was the first to spell out the requirements for a general purpose electronic computer. The 1946 paper, written with Arthur W. Burks and Hermann H. Goldstine, was titled "Preliminary Discussion of the Logical Design of an Electronic Computing Instrument," and the ideas in it were to have a profound impact on the subsequent development of such machines. Von Neumann's design led eventually to the construction of the EDVAC computer in 1952. However, the first computer of this type to be actually constructed and operated was the Manchester Mark I, designed and built at Manchester University in England [Siewiorek, et al. 1982]. It ran its first program in 1948, executing it out of its 96 word memory. It executed an instruction in 1.2 milliseconds, which must have seemed phenomenal at the time. Using today's popular "MIPS" terminology (millions of instructions per second), it would be rated at .00083 MIPS. By contrast, some current supercomputers are rated at in excess of 1000 MIPS. And yet, these computers, such as the Cray systems and the Control Data Cyber 200 models, are still tied to the von......

Rückzug Von Der Börse

...Rückzug von der Börse 1. Einleitung Der Rückzug eines Unternehmens vom Kapitalmarkt, das sog. Going Private, wird definiert als „die Überführung einer börsennotierten Gesellschaft (public company) in ein nicht an der Börse notiertes Unternehmen (Private company)“. Für die Durchführung dieser strategischen Entscheidung gibt es verschiedene Möglichkeiten und Beweggründe, auf die ich im Folgenden eingehen möchte. Nicht nur der Rückzug per se unterliegt gesetzlichen Anforderungen, auch die unterschiedlichen Möglichkeiten werden durch rechtliche Rahmenbedingungen ermöglicht, gesteuert und auch unterschieden. Ich werde folglich die Beweggründe, die Entwicklung des Börsenrückzugs und auch Beispiele dafür sowohl aus Sicht des Unternehmens darstellen, als auch von einer rechtlichen Perspektive aus beleuchten. Ziel soll es sein, einen Einblick in die Thematik des Börsenrückzugs zu geben, Hintergründe und Entwicklungen dieser darzulegen und festzustellen, ob sich derzeit ein Trend zu Börsenrückzügen erkennen lässt. 2. Börsenrückzug Ein Rückzug von der Börse wird nicht nur als „Going Private“, sondern auch als Delisting bezeichnet. Delisting beschreibt „die Streichung einer Börsennotierung von Wertpapieren bzw. Beendigung der Börsenzulassung“. Die Unterscheidung dieser Begriffe ist insofern möglich, als dass sich das Going Private mit der „Zusammensetzung und Struktur der Eigentümer“ und das Delisting mit der „Handelbarkeit der Eigentumsanteile an den Kapitalmärkten“ beschäftigt.......

Van Gogh Starry Night

...think that this painting is one of the greater pioneer forms of abstract art. Van Gogh’s rendering of the world the way that he perceived it, blended with his own stigmatic emotion, is evidenced by his abstract depiction of this small village in the south of France in 1889; Starry Night is aesthetically, artistically, and technically unique. Starry night is a depiction of an actual village that Van Gogh visited during his lifetime. At the risk of merely defining the obvious, the fact that this is a depiction of an actual village evidences the portrayal of real, naturally occurring forms within his painting – forms that any person who has observed this painting, can attest are definitely a distorted rendition. The distortion of these forms is a demonstration of the type of art that would be later defined as abstract, a descriptive of art in which the forms of the visual world are purposefully simplified, fragmented, or otherwise distorted. Having said that, one of the first distinct feature representations of abstraction in this painting that I noticed was the peculiar way that Van Gogh painted the stars - Van Gogh’s stars are exaggerated to the point that their size is almost equitant to most conventional depictions of our sun; this is an obvious demonstration of his use of forms of the visual world which he purposefully distorted (perhaps to signify the residence of spirits on each star). The second, most striking demonstration of the use of abstraction in this painting......

Vincent Van Gogh

...Vincent Van Gogh 1853 – 1890 "And my aim in my life is to make pictures and drawings, as many and as well as I can; then, at the end of my life, I hope to pass away, looking back with love and tender regret, and thinking, 'Oh, the pictures I might have made!'" Vincent van Gogh Letter 338 19 November 1883 Early Years – Vincent Van Gogh makes one of the most tragic lives in the history of painting, which began on March 30, 1853 at Groot-Zundert, in Dutch Brabant, near the Belgian frontier. Vincent’s father, Theodorus, was a pastor and the son of a pastor. His mother, Anna Cornelia Carbentus, was the daughter of a Court bookbinder at The Hague. Their married life was happy and uneventful. Anna and Theodorus had a first child, Vincent-Wilhelm, only to die at the age of six weeks. A year to the very day after, the Anna bore a second son, Vincent Van Gogh. Anna then delivered five more children, Theo, Vincent’s favorite brother, his supporter and guide, Cornelius, Anna, Elisabeth-Huberta and Willemien. Vincent lived in his native village till he was twelve years old. He was very quiet, liable to sudden bursts of impatience or high spirits, which alternated with long periods of depression. Secretive, he did not mix with other children. Vincent was not antisocial; he shared in the family life and showed great affection for his home circle. His childhood was outwardly dull and he was a lonely boy, but stubborn and determined. His time was spent......

Von Neumann

...was until the 1940's when Von Neumann and his collegues introduced an architecture that was created to where computers can perform and execute many different types of tasks at the same time. Von Neumann's architecture is divided into different parts. The input device, output device, auxiliary storage device, main memory and the central processing unit. (CPU) which includes the control unit, arithmetic logic unit and the registers. Today most computers are still based off of Von Neumann's architecture and are also known as Von Neumann machines. The Von Neumann machine operates off a fetch execute cycle which is a five step where the CPU fetches an instruction from the memory and executes it. In the first step, the control unit uses the address in the program counter to fetch an instruction from the main memory. Next the instruction is decoded to determine if any data is needed to complete the execution. In the third step, all the data that is required is retrieved from the memory and placed in the registers. By using the data in the registers, the instruction is then executed by the arithmetic logic unit only if necessary. The instruction is then performed by the required input or output operations. Von Neumann's architecture is important to us especially today because we are able to use one device to perform multiple tasks instead of having to use multiple devices to complete one task. In order to complete these multiple tasks on one device, Von Neumann architecture uses...

Van Gogh

...hard pressed to even make out the two forms. Upon research into the history of the painting and the artist, it’s worth nothing that Pollock suffered from recurring alcoholism and likely depression throughout his adult life. Male and Female was created during a time in which Pollock was undergoing mental therapy, and was very likely encouraged to paint as a means of said therapy. As mentioned, this work is an excellent example of abstract art: the physical appearance of the perceived subject matter is substantially skewed and morphed to the level of being almost indecipherable. Van Gogh’s The Night Café was completed 1888 utilizing oil on canvas. The painting was directly based on an all-night tavern frequented by Van Gogh during his time in Arles, France. Van Gogh was coincidentally well known for heavy smoking and alcohol use. The work features a presumably late-night scene at the tavern. There are seven tables for patrons to sit, but only three occupied. Five patrons of the café are sitting, with one, perhaps the owner or bartender, leaning against one of the tables. The billiards table in the painting’s center is unused. Three of the five seated patrons are visibly hunched over, conveying a state of drunkenness or tiredness. The other two are seated in the back right, appearing to be in quiet conversation. The painting features unmistakable contrasts of color, with the straw colored floor matching the glow of overhead lights, scarlet walls with a green ceiling. Alcohol is......

Van Gogh

...Vincent Willem van Gogh was born on 30 March 1853 in Groot-Zundert, a village close to Breda, in the predominantly Catholic province of North Brabant in the southern Netherlands. He was the oldest surviving child of Theodorus van Gogh, a minister of the Dutch Reformed Church, and Anna Cornelia Carbentus. Vincent was given the name of his grandfather, and of a brother stillborn exactly a year before his birth. The practice of reusing a name was not unusual. Vincent was a common name in the Van Gogh family: his grandfather, Vincent (1789–1874), had received his degree of theology at the University of Leiden in 1811. Grandfather Vincent had six sons, three of whom became art dealers, including another Vincent -referred to in the letters as "Uncle Cent". Grandfather Vincent had perhaps been named in turn after his own father's uncle, the successful sculptor Vincent van Gogh (1729–1802). Art and religion were the two occupations to which the Van Gogh family gravitated. His brother Theodorus "Theo" was born on 1 May 1857. He had another brother, Cor, and three sisters: Elisabeth, Anna, and Willemina "Wil". Vincent was a serious, silent and thoughtful child. He attended the village school at Zundert from 1860, where a single Catholic teacher taught around 200 pupils. From 1861, he and his sister Anna were taught at home by a governess, until 1 October 1864, when he was placed in Jan Provily's boarding school at Zevenbergen about 20 miles (32 km) away. He was distressed to leave his...

Vincent Van Gogh

...Vincent Van Gogh Vincent Van Gogh was born on March 30, 1853 and died July 29, 1890 he was the son of Theodorus Van Gogh, a minister of the Dutch Reformed Church, and Anna Cornelia Carbentus. Vincent was given the name of his grandfather, and of his stillborn brother. He was a major Post-Impressionist Dutch painter, an artist whose work greatly influenced 20th-century art. His output included portraits, landscapes and still lives of cypresses, wheat fields and sunflowers. Van Gogh drew as a child but did not paint until his late twenties; he completed many of his best-known works during the last two years of his life. In just over a decade he produced more than 2,100 artworks, including 860 oil paintings and more than 1,300 watercolor: drawings, sketches and prints. But Van Gogh had a very humble and unexpected start at the age 13 he was a very serious, silent, and thoughtful child. He attended the Zundert village school from 1860 from 1861, he was then sent to Jan Provily's boarding school at Zevenbergen about 20 miles from his family. On 15 September 1866, he went to the new middle school, Willem II College in Tilburg, where Constantijn C. Huysmans, a successful artist from Paris, taught Van Gogh to draw at the school and advocated a systematic approach to the subject. Vincent's interest in art soon began and he started to draw and continued making drawings throughout the years leading to his decision to become an artist. Though well done and expressive, his early......

The Night Cafe by Vincent Van Gogh

...(I think) is this one. The place he hung out at night drinking. The work depicts the interior of the Café de la Gare, an all night tavern owned by Joseph-Michel Ginoux and his wife Marie. It was located at 41 Rue Du Temple, 4th St. Paris, France. It is known that Van Gogh visited disreputable drinking establishments. The bare setting of the Café de la Gare served as inspiration to Van Gogh. The asymmetrical composition serves the purpose of communicating a feeling of unbalance. The psychological elements of this painting gave it unity: The disproportioned elements in the composition, the odd placement of objects, and the odd point of view contributed to its conceptual unity. The artist used oil on canvas because it helped his strong brush strokes define his expressional lines which were characteristic of his paintings. Expressional lines are not necessarily connected to the depiction and therefore not related to an object in reality, they are not descriptive. As he used a lot of expressional color, we realize that he does the same thing with line with one very great emphasis. In Van Gogh’s case, his colors and his paint were so thick and his brush stroke was so emphatic that really you can look at a Van Gogh and say that every single brush stroke is a line and that is what gives his painting a wild sense of energy. What Van Gogh’s first critic called “feverish,” it is all through these undulating constantly changing lines. We can see an example of this in the light......

Vincent Van Gogh

...30, 2010 Feelings Waltz on the Canvas Vincent Van Gogh and His Impact on Art World “ ... Starry starry night, Flaming flowers that brightly blaze     Swirling clouds in violet haze     Reflect in Vincent’s eyes of china blue     Colors changing hue     Morning fields of amber grain     Weathered faces lined in pain     Are soothed beneath the artist’s loving hand…” In the song “Vincent”, Mclean reveals one after another beautiful painting of Van Gogh through the singer’s gorgeous words. At the same time he expresses his understanding and respect to the gifted artist Vincent Van Gogh. Even though Van Gogh was suffered by hunger and cold, misunderstanding and distorting, he had always immersed in creating art with passion. His inspiration of art creating was never surrendered to the fate. Speaking was never Van Gogh’s strength. He preferred to communicate with others through his art works. Van Gogh said, “…art wells up from a deeper source out of our soul.” The art world should be grateful for Van Gogh’s special way of communication. Otherwise there will never be Post-impressionism. Vincent Van Gogh lived long time ago, and yet his work is still varying many perspectives of people’s life. The legacy of Vincent Van Gogh led the flourish of the Post-impressionism and Expressionism, impacted many artists’ art style in nowadays, and changed the way mankind views the beauty of the world and society. After Van Gogh died, people started to notice him and his artwork,......

The Pathophysiology of Von Willebrand Disease

...disorder, von Willebrand Disease, is the most frequently occurring congenital hemorrhagic disorder. It affects about one percent of the population and occurs in both sexes, as it is passed down genetically via autosomal dominant inheritance. The main presenting symptom of the disease is abnormal bleeding of mucosal membranes, usually occurring after a challenge to the body’s hemostatic ability such as surgery or a dental extraction. Menorrhagia in women can also be indicative of von Willebrand Disease. This abnormal mucosal bleeding is attributed to a quantitative deficiency or structural abnormality in the body’s supply of von Willebrand Factor, which is necessary for the body’s hemostasis and coagulative function. Within the human circulatory system, von Willebrand Factor, or VWF, has three main functions. Its primary function is to mediate platelet adhesion to the subendothelial collagen of blood vessel walls when they become damaged. This occurs most frequently in capillaries and arterioles, where the flow rate of blood is highest and desquamation of the endothelial lining is the most common. VWF is also the carrier molecule for the plasma procoagulant, Factor VIII. They form the VWF/VIII complex, which prevents the proteolysis of Factor VIII and prolongs its plasma half-life from only a few moments to eight to twelve hours. von Willebrand Factor is also responsible for mediating platelet-to-platelet aggregation through the release of glycoprotein stimulants. von......
