In Robert Kurson’s book, “Shadow Divers,” he reveals how a group of divers solve one of the last mysteries of World War II. Captain Bill Nagle owns the Seeker which is a charter boat that people can rent to take them to shipwrecks. Nagle is a world renowned deep sea shipwreck diver, because he pushes the limits on how far and where divers can go. Nagle has explored some of the most dangerous shipwrecks such as the Andrea Doria and Texas Tower. He has also retrieved various souvenirs from wrecks such as china dishes and the boat’s bell, but Nagle has massive respect for the history of sunken watercraft. Nagle’s sworn enemy is Steve Bielenda, also a shipwreck diver, who was crowned, “King of the Deep.” The bad blood was developed due to the fact that Bielenda doesn’t respect others and
According to the textbook face validity is, “the extent to which an instrument appears to measure what it says it measures”. After reviewing the National Ambulatory Medical Care Survey (NAMCS) and the NAMCS Electronic Medical Record Supplement Survey, the surveys both meet the definition of face validity. Content validity, according to textbook is, “the rigorous determination that the instrument represents all relevant aspects of a topic”. The NAMCS, for the most part, meets the definition of content validity. On page 3, question number 9a and 9b needs to be re-sequenced. The interviewer is prompting to give a definition of what is included as an ambulatory patient after the question of asking if they directly care for ambulatory patients. The telephone number needs to be added on page 4 question 10a.
In April 1775 British general Thomas Gage ordered his soldiers to destroy American rebel Military stores in Concord, Massachusetts. British and American forces clashed in Concord and Lexington starting the Revolutionary war.
Imagine a life or death situation for a marine animal and you have the power to help. Most people would jump to the help. The issue is are rovs valuable? On one side of the debate people argue that ROVs are not valuable for underwater research because rovs don’t have a brain and they have to keep recharging after every drop they do. However, ROVs are ABSOLUTELY valuable to underwater research because they are small so they can fit into small cracks and crevices to fix things or find someone or something in need of help, they are faster than humans and more agile, and they can not be bothered by sharks or other fish that would attack the humans because they don’t taste like blood or have meat like humans do.
In the two years following the Costa Concordia cruise ship disaster, the small VideoRay Pro-4 ROV logged over 45,000 underwater hours (Lorenzi, 2014a). At just 13 pounds and 12-inches long, the tethered Pro 4 was able to penetrate into small, confined underwater spaces to help locate survivors and disaster victims (Lorenzi, 2014a).
The USS Nautilus was a record breaker. At that time it held the record for the longest submersion of any American submarine. The submarine is nuclear powered, so it could stay underwater for a very long time. “Nuclear power allows a submarine to travel underwater for months at a time, with no need to refuel.” (Jefferis 10). This submarine could go faster than any submarine before this time, because of the nuclear power. Since the Nautilus was so successful with being nuclear powered, we now have many nuclear powered submarines. Also, this was a new way for the US Navy to attack enemy ships.
This paper will compare two articles related to ethnographic research and the approach taken by modern cultural anthropologists. The question raised in both articles is whether or not a change should be implemented in the accepted method of current standards of writing and recording field research. Additionally these articles question the idea of ethnographies being solely reported through intellectual analyses, and pose the idea of incorporating and taking into account more human emotions, or affect, of the cultures being studied.
Proposition 2: The threat of accidental discovery and the desire for openness positively influence DI disclosure.
Before the French and American Revolution had occurred pirates were living according to the very same principles of liberty and freedom we know of and live by today. Pirate codes were revolutionary in their method of how they took power away from one man. Although pirates have always been looked upon as lawless tough guys and outlaws of the sea that terrorized up and down the Atlantic it is interesting to note that in the 18th century pirates had an interesting form of one of the earliest democracies to ever exist.
Ethnography is the study of social interactions, behaviours, and perceptions that occur within groups, teams, organisations, and communities. The central aim of ethnography is to provide rich, holistic insights into people’s views and actions. (Reeves et al, 2017). The term ethnography has come to be equated with virtually any qualitative research project where the intent is to provide a detailed, in-depth description of everyday life and practice. Qualitative research can be described as social science research in comparison to quantitative research is statistically orientated research (Hoey, 2017).
Titanic has intrigued the whole world since she sank taking more than 1,500 lives in April of 1912. Titanic was known as “The Ship of Dreams” until she shattered millions of hearts with her catastrophic event. The monumental aspect of the Titanic and her tragedy that came from it allowed an extraordinary movie, which gave the audience that perspective and exposure to such an historical event.
Society is increasingly realizing the issue concerning the destruction of archaeological remains. The growth of the self-proclaimed “Islamic State”, IS, and their direct assaults on archaeological remains in Mesopotamia, has created a distain throughout the archaeological community. The Editorial by Alexander Bauer ((()) explores the what reactions will likely develop from these assaults, exploring their significance, and their controversy.
The interview with Ms. X flowed so easily; it quickly consumed nearly an hour and a half of our time. I felt conviction in my subject and topic choice(-,) but realized that the most daunting task would be trimming the interview to meet the requirements of this assignment. Offering so much that caught and captivated my interest, I was grateful that Ms. X gave me permission to record our interview. During the first few minutes, I realized that if I had to take notes while she was talking, I would not have been nearly as present in the conversation, and would have likely screwed up details later (-on) in the writing process. Knowing, however, that I will not always have the luxury of consent for recording conversation, effective note-taking during personal interviews is a skill I need to enhance.
Firstly, humans have more mobility compared with that of rovers. Humans can travel a considerably greater distance than robots on Mars. They also do not have to worry about rocks, gullies, or other obstacles, which rovers need more time to step over, or simply cannot. Thus, if explorers find an interesting estate in far and unidentified place from landing site, humans have much more possibility to reach there. (FAQ, 2015) Moreover, rovers will never go beyond what they are programmed beforehand. In the case of emergency, unknown objects or unexpected situations, humans can adjust those situations and create solutions for that immediately, whereas robotic machines can do anything. For instance, Kazan (2009) illustrates a specific example of Viking programs in 1976. This expedition was conducted by rovers equipped with sampling and laboratory system, which can detect life automatically. The results radioed back to Earth were enigmatic, which had chemical reactions unlike anything on Earth. After all, scientist concluded that it was lifeless, but the debate over this took over 30 years. He insisted that if a human biologist or biochemist had examined that directly, they could have learned more and solved this matter
For pool owners, there is nothing more exhausting than cleaning the pool itself. Perhaps the common denominator as to why people want to own a pool is that they want to relax and enjoy it with their family and friends. That is the reason why most pool owners prefer to buy robotic pool cleaners.
