The goal of this lab was to build a mousetrap powered car. The mousetrap car needed to travel fifteen feet. The purpose of building these mousetrap cars was to demonstrate our knowledge of motion, friction, force, distance, and energy. We have studied these concepts, and each one is a factor in the success of a mousetrap car.
I have been playing Ice Hockey for 12 years now, and I have loved every second of it. Well, almost every second, I’m kind of a sore loser. However, I still love the game. I love how in a game, one play can change the entire atmosphere of the game, whether its a goal that lights up the crowd, a hit that keeps the glass shaking, or a bad call by the ref that has the entire arena booing at the guy in stripes. But most of all, I love how the game has a way of comforting those who play it, like me.
Miracle on Ice happed on February 22, 1980. It is when team USA defeated the Soviet Union in the semi-final men’s ice hockey game during the winter Olympics. It took place in lake placid, New York and would be one of the biggest and most important games America has played during the winter Olympics. It is called the Miracle on ice because the USA hockey team had to defeat the mighty Soviet Union amateur team, which was not an amateur team, but a team filled of professional athletes, while the Americas hockey team was college students.
“My thing is, if you want to go, you want to go. There’s no point in making fun of each other’s moms out here.” (Brandon Prust) As we all know, there are fights in professional hockey, like the NHL and AHL. Some sports have completely banned fighting, but the NHL has not outright banned it yet. As debates around fighting in the NHL circumnavigate, one thing is for sure, hockey has had a major history of fighting, and that draws fans. To showing that fights are safer, building momentum, and a sort of self officiating, there is only one correct answer in this debate for this special and idiosyncratic sport, and it is to keep the fights.
Indian Horse by Richard Wagamese is undoubtedly captivating and entertaining. Even so, a close scrutiny of the novel reveals the novelist’s careful development of Saul’s character not only with the aim of capturing the journey he embarks on, but also linking his journey to the theme of suffering. Thus, rather than presenting a static character, Wagamese chooses to present a dynamic character whose emotional state evolves over time as he goes through various crises in his life. Saul goes through an emotional journey that is marked by pain, isolation, loneliness and fear, numbness and resignation, excitement, a relapse to isolation, and freedom, and this journey builds on the theme of suffering.
The date was February 22, 1980 in a snowy Lake Placid New York; “Morrow up to Silk, you’ve got five seconds left in the game, do you believe in miracles? Yes!” and so it began.

Hockey is a game that has been around for many generations, there is nothing more special than the game of hockey.

The National Hockey League has a problem, but it’s not the one you think it is. For decades, a group of contemptible, no-guts, cowardly momma’s boys have been trying to eradicate one of the more integral and important parts of the sport: Fighting. Since 1922, the NHL has wisely allowed bare-knuckle fighting. This has had many benefits over the years. For starters, it’s given employment to hundreds of players who couldn’t otherwise make an NHL roster, except for the fact that they can beat a guy senseless. How else do you think Colton Orr and Derek Boogaard made it past the AHL? It also serves as a way to police the game amongst players. It prevents many dirty, dangerous, and cheap plays from happening. Opposing players know that if they try to do anything funny, there will be consequences. This policing has done a great job at reducing the number of on-ice casualties over the years. There’s also the fact that it’s one of the most effective, consistent, and reliable ways of changing the momentum of a game. It’d be like the NFL removing the onside kick. As a nine-year old Pittsburgh Penguins, I remember watching Maxime Talbot bait Philadelphia’s Daniel Carcillo into a pointless
