Rutherford's experiment shows how scientists must never just accept the current theories and models but they should always be putting to new tests and experiments to the test. Rutherford was defiantly one of the most successful scientists of his time although his most renowned
Alchemy was the basis of Chemistry during the Renaissance. There were three goals that the Alchemists strived for; transforming lesser base metals into gold, producing an exilir of life that enabled humans to live forever, and changing solids into gas without going through the state of liquid. These goals were the main concepts of Alchemy. In the Middle Ages and Renaissance, Alchemy was the main science, similar to a superstition, and it was taught in three stages. Alchemists believed that God used four key elements to create the world in a magician-like way.
There’s so much criticizing we lose sight of what there’s good in us because all we worry about is the negativity in us instead of focusing on the positive things that we like about ourselves. Instead of looking at yourself in the mirror everyday criticizing yourself we should start pointing out the positive things and start complimenting yourselves you’ll be happier that way it. Even if you did perfect one of those flaws somehow in a surgical way you’ll always find something else to be negative about so either you never win. It’s better to overcome those flaws and be proud of what you are. Appreciate what you have and what you are because you could have it
Failure is vital to the growth of not only heroes, but ordinary people as well, as it teaches them how to move past their guilt and negativity in order to persevere. Through the article Nine Ways to Fail Better, the author shows that it’s not easy to deal with failure, but it is extremely important to move on. The author states, “Blaming yourself for the bad things that happen to you--are probably the biggest reason people metabolize failure badly.” In expressing that one should put the blame on themselves, “for the bad things that happen to [them]” stresses the idea that failure is often inevitable, and there is not much that can change the outcome of the situation. Additionally, there is no sense in feeling shameful about failure. Along with the self-blame associated with failure,
Ice-nine was more of an intellectual challenge for him than it was an assignment. Scientists will create whatever they can when they have the opportunity to do so, they are just following their pursuit of knowledge. Ice-nine was an unchecked growth in science and technology. Ice-nine was unchecked and it was the end of us. Ice-nine is a symbol for the atom bomb, a very similar project that started with the research of atoms but as soon made into the most deadly weapon we have today.
Alyssa Loperena Ms Milliner EES21QH-02 1/16 Othello’s Grit and Mindset Grit is all about determination. The harder you work towards something, the most likely you’ll achieve it. Some people don’t have grit because they aren’t determined enough or motivated to be the best they can be. Angela Duckworth and the Research on “grit” is an article that has examples or grit. According to Duckworth, “Ivy League school - people who are not as bright as their peers ‘compensate by working harder and with more determination.’ In addition, their effort pays off: The grittiest students - not the smartest ones - had the highest GPAs (Paragraph 2, page 15).” This is Duckworth’s example of grit.
It baffles me how everything in the universe could come together so perfectly, with such symmetry and such complexity. It’s very interesting to read or hear about someone’s opinion on the subject, which is why I really liked this book. The facts in the book are extremely thought-provoking, and have taught me many interesting things, including simple facts about simple things, to facts and theories about how everything was formed, and how everything works together. I have learned and thought about so many more things with this book than any other book I have read. The book is related to science because it discusses a lot of physics, science, math, and some psychology.
Science is a set of knowledge of a particular subject. Science can change and new info and perspectives of the subject are added with each discovery. Science is also distinguished by other forms of understanding because it encapsulates many findings from others so we can have the most probable facts about the subject. Science has impacted the ways we live in. New findings and discoveries shape what we buy, consume, use ets… For example The Radium Girls who contracted radiation poisoning from the self-luminous paint they used on clocks and other furniture shaped us into not using carnotite ore to make fluorescent furniture.
Thus, our actions that we do lies in that it maximizes pleasure and minimizes pain for us. Although he did say only rightfully act if it would result in pleasure, he did not recommend living extravagantly. This is pointed out in Larveson 's lecture notes; debating the pros and cons of a passionate love affair. In Epicurus’s view, to have the affair would prove to have the most pleasure, however, could also bring the most pain. The sum, Epicurus would see, would not net the most pleasure.
Entering the new century, 20th century’s physicists came up with a new branch of physics – quantum physics, which explains the behavior of matter and energy on the atomic and subatomic level. After the scientists work on this subject, they solved the mystery of tiny particles’ motions. However, a load of equations made quantum physics rename as ‘the hardest subject to understand’. Richard Feynman is well-known for a quantum physicist, the most difficult subject of the modern physics. However, he made a new diagram about the activity of photoelectric particles that public can easily understand.
Many others were devoted to the study of atoms, and gave many ideas of what atoms were. Also, due to the study of atoms, a scientist named Henri Becquerel stumbled upon radioactivity. Dmitri Mendeleyev brandished a new way to organize the Periodic Table. Therefore, the study of atoms is what brought many things that help us
In conclusion, I believe that the theme communication is better than violence is the best lesson illustrated in The Outsiders, because physical harm doesn 't change anything, there 's no point in doing it, and it usually ends negatively for the participants. This relates to me because I think sometimes we get so frustrated with people that we don 't even think about talking it out, but really, it would help us resolve our problems more effectively if we communicated with each other. I definitely recommend The Outsiders to anyone who wants an action-packed book that teaches a
Professors are rewarded for research” (Deresiewicz 64). This pact impacts student standards of learning, not in a sense that they are learning, but the loss in passion for what they learn, is lost. Attending an elite schools allows students to really do whatever they want or find their vocation, “it means the thing you’re called to do” (Deresiewicz 90). This idea comes from
In fact, I believe the reason behind my high academic achievement was not natural ability; rather, I always made sure that I was not over-confident of my abilities and prepared to do extra work to insure my success. I even came up with a saying to motivate myself: “Work hard enough so that it is impossible to fail.” This philosophy has allowed me to take stressful situations in stride. One such situation was raising my grade in Molecular Biology from a D to an A-. Thus, I feel that I would be of great use to the practice of medicine as I am no stranger to arduous
Although I initially noticed Harvey Mudd because of their low student-to-faculty ratio and the high entry-level salaries which Harvey Mudd graduates tend to receive, I found many other reasons to apply. First off, the elaborate core curriculum appealed to me for various reasons. At the moment, I have narrowed down my list of greatest interests to the areas of engineering and computer science, but that still allows for a wide range of fields. On top of that, I still have a long list of lesser interests, such as economics, math, foreign affairs, or physics. The extensive core curriculum solves both problems, since the diverse requirements give me the opportunity to explore my scattered interests, while simultaneously allowing extra time to decide which my primary interests to major in.
