As the arm rotates, the things in the thing experience centripetal acceleration which causes it to move out. The initial release position is such that the beam on the counterweight side makes an angle of 45° with the vertical. There is a lot of math required in finding the trajectory of the arms through.

“War is like love, it always finds a way” (Bertolt Brecht). Although one is pure and the other evil, the forces of both love and war influence the best stories. A more interesting topic emerges when a character must choose between loyalty to a loved one and devotion to government. In “The Sniper” and “Cranes” the main character is involved in a civil war that calls for allegiance to the government despite his feelings for a loved one who fights for the opposite cause. “The Sniper” and “Cranes” are two similar pieces of literature, however both stories are different and unique from one another. Although these stories share similarities in the plot, the characters, and the theme they also show many differences.

Jeff was on a mission. His mission was to gather information on the evasive rouge colonel that went by the name of Bonge Stoof.

Bunker Hill was a battle in the Revolutionary War. It is very well known and is a great example of the Patriots’ losing the battles but making those battles count. In the Revolutionary War the Patriots actually lost more battles but won the war. Bunker Hill was actually the smaller part of Breed’s Hill and it was an advantageous spot to have control of. Bunker Hill is seen very differently than it was. Before Bunker Hill it was unclear if the Patriots were willing or able to battle with the redcoats. The Patriots and the Redcoats both had advantages and weaknesses and the British eventually won, but at great cost.

The French Army first established Fort Ticonderoga during the French and Indian War in northern New York between 1755 and 1757 as a preventative measure in anticipation of attacks on French settlements in the Champlain Valley (http://www.fortticonderoga.org/history-and-collections/timeline#). They built it on the western coast, along the southern straits of Lake Champlain, overlooking the lake and a waterway that was at that time a gateway between two great empires of France and Great Britain (Randall, 1990). The French first successfully defended the fort from the British in 1758 in the Battle of Carillon, (Carillon is the former name of Ticonderoga) but the British captured it the following year. The British moved their main center operations to Fort Crown Point soon after the fortification’s completion, but the British still maintained a small garrison at Fort Ticonderoga with elements of the 26th Regiment of Foot along with artillery pieces. However, by the time 1775 rolled around, the fort had fallen into disrepair.
