A warm morning, sun shining with a slight breeze, and calm waters; the perfect day to learn how to water ski. I had never been water skiing before, I barely knew what it was, I was anxious to say in the least. I stood on the dock as my parents maneuvered the boat into the water, I’ve never been so uncertain. My family reassured me that everything would be okay as I was strapped up my life jacket. I stood on the edge of the boat, apprehensive, but I had to jump in the water, it was now or never.
Some might say flipping a bottle with a bit of water in it and then landing the bottle perfectly upright is pure luck and it doesn 't matter how it happens, just hope it lands. Well, there is more than one might think. The science behind this so called art is quite astonishing, from the right amount of water in the bottle and even a phenomenon that lets the bottle land. This phenomenon is called angular momentum which applies to any object traveling around another.
Ernest Tang 8E (16) Base Jumping Science Summative Lab Research Question: How does the drop height of (4.5m ,5m ,5.5m,6m and 6.5m) affect the drop time of the base jumping experiment? This is to see if my parachute works safely. I would record the time of the fall and see if it would be too fast. If it takes less time to land when released at a higher point, this means that the parachute is not safe.
Have you ever realized that as you get older you slowly have less and less time to do anything fun or spontaneous? For me, I may not be considered old, but lately it seems to be getting harder to do anything such as hanging out with friends, hanging out with my girlfriend, and even just watching television. As I get older it is becoming increasingly difficult to stay young. All of my time has been taken with the pressures of school, so that I can build a career, and working 2 jobs. I’ve been working at McDonalds for about 3 years and The Home Depot for almost a year now.
How to do a Traveling Time Step Not many people know very much about tap dancing or the time and effort that goes into it. Many people, including myself, use tap dancing as a way to be creative and express feelings. Tap dancing may not be very popular, but once people start to learn or choreograph it, they realize that there is much more to this style of dance than tapping your toes. There are several different ways to choreograph dance and a traveling time step is one of the four main time steps used to fill space in a tap dance.

THE GAIT CYCLE Gait is the state of ones’ locomotion or ambulation which involves their lower extremity (especially in normal walking), while their trunk and arms provide balance and stability. The quicker the person moves, the more they rely on their trunk and upper body for compulsion and also for stability and balance. The lower limbs still do most of the work, since the muscles of the lower limb give greater response and joints giving a greater range of motion. Three major joints of the lower extremity as well as the pelvis work hand in hand as the propulsion and muscles move the body forward. How much the body’s center of gravity moves while propelling forward defines efficiency.
On day two of retreat, my group and I went on the high roped course, which I was really excited for. There were four different courses you could do, however with our big group and long lines, I only had time to do 2 of them. The first one I did was called the Leap of Faith. This is because in the course you climb up a tree using a ladder and some stakes already placed in the tree to get up to a platform about 30 feet above ground. From there, still attached to the harness, you jump out from the platform, and for a split second it feels like you are falling, until the rope catches you and you are slowly lowered to the ground.
By Gail Furst, CPDT KA — www.k-9healers.com Halloween can be especially scary for dogs since they don’t understand why humans big and small are wearing costumes and knocking at their door. Some options to help your dog get through the night of horrors: • Keep all pets indoors on Halloween! • If your dog is reactive to visitors knocking at your door, locate a room far from your front door and ask someone to sit with your dog while you answer the door. It helps if you can disable your doorbell for the evening. The person sitting with your dog can be playing soft music, watching a movie, or playing computer games all of which will help to drown out the sound of trick-or-treaters knocking at the door.
