Research Journal 2: The Power of Birth Order
In a TIME magazine article titled, “The Power of Birth Order,” Jeffrey Kluger goes through a long history of “unsuccessful” younger siblings of presidents. Elliot Roosevelt, brother to dear old Teddy, who died of alcoholism; Donald Nixon, bad with money and brother to Richard; Jimmy Carter’s younger brother Billy, known for stunts like urinating on an airport runway in full view of paparazzi and dignitaries; Roger Clinton, the kid brother to Bill, served time in jail for possession of cocaine; and let’s not forget Neil Bush, younger to ex-president George and ex-governor Jeb.
The impact of birth order plays an important part of whom you are and who you will be come later in life. Of all the things that could shape our lives, many of us can see the impact of birth order. This birth order impact is not limited to the average family it is noted with many families within the public eye for example, “There was Donald Nixon and the loans he wangled form billionaire Howard Hughes. There was Billy Carter and his advocacy on behalf of the pariah state Libya. There was Roger Clinton and his year in jail on cocaine conviction” (Time). There is Billy Ripken a major league baseball plays over shadowed by his older brother Cal. Have you ever heard of Tisa Farrow she is an actress only noted for the movie Zombie? However, many have heard of her older sister Mia. Is it our genes that make us who we are? Perhaps it is our brain chemistry or because to the school we attended, who helped shaped who we are.

Many researchers have study birth order have concluded that the oldest child is on the average three points higher on the IQ scale. In addition, the second child’s IQ is higher than the third. This recent study conducted by a group of researcher also noted that they were not sure as to the cause.
Many of the earlier research…...

English Composition

...Expectations of English Composition As I stumble through the door of my first English Composition class in college, I am baffled by my professor’s seemingly enormous expectations for my meager writing skills. My anxious mind anticipates the same question as I stare blankly at the white dry erase board; “Will my past knowledge of high school composition correlate with the academic rigors of college English Composition”. The curriculum of college English is far more demanding and time consuming than the simplicities of high school English. I am presented with great expectations to thrive in the pressures of writings essays and reading other authors’ pieces. My presumptions will lead to positive academic achievements in English composition as I absorb the significant impression of college writing skills. My past high school teachers valued student composition as simplistic and predictable. Writing about weekend ventures and family endeavors became very arduous and tedious as the topic always presented the identical situation, ‘Write an essay about your experiences of a fun family experience or weekend event.’ Therefore, my essays were based upon the same idea as other student’s writings, never exploring into the uncharted, creative world of thought provoking essays. Writing in high school became very dull because teachers expected each student composition to be based on the same topic. Teachers identified each student’s essay as monotonous and repetitive since it was based......

Composition Paper

...well my paper was written and asked me if I would write for the Marine Corps Times. This is the official paper of the Marine Corps. When I was able to check the score of the MCI’s I received a 90% or higher on three of the English MCI’s that I did. This was the last time I wrote a paper until I attended ITT-Tech. To my knowledge I earned an A on all of my papers as well as an A in the course of Strategies of the Technical Professional. My final thoughts are that I have explained the proper format on writing a paper while comparing it to a cheeseburger, which is something simple for everyone to understand. I feel that with my past writing experiences that taking the Composition 1 course would be redundant for me and a waste of the school’s time. I am confident in my writing capabilities and feel that Composition 1 would not help in expanding my writing abilities....

...Composition and Inverse Alicia Frambro MAT 222: Intermediate Algebra Prof: Michael Smith September 22, 2013 Composition and Inverse When using functions, there are different ways to solve various values. Many companies use these functions to monitor business pertaining gross profit and many other operations such as adjusting productivity. Visual examples of these functions are graphs. They provide a visual relationship between composition and inverse solutions as well and the difference between profit gain and profit loss for a business. The following functions will be used to solve certain problems. fx=2x+5 g(x)=x2-3 (x) = 7+x3 f-h(4) Use rule of composition and solve which is f(4)-h(4). f(x)-h(x)= 2x+5-(7-x) 2(4) +5- 7-43 Substitute 4 for x. 8+ 5- 33 Use order of operations to solve. 8+5-1= 12 Therefore (f-h)(4)= 12 Evaluate two compositions of the above functions. A. (fog)(x) B. (fog)(x) The method that should be used to solve is to find the solution of one function and then substitute the solution for x in the other solution. For A we would first solve for g(x) and substitute the solution for x into f(x). A. (fog)(x)= f(g(x)) (fog)(x)= f(x2-3) (fog)(x)= 2(x2-3) +5 Substitute g(x) for x in f(x).

Composition of Sugars

...Lab: 3—Chemical Composition of Cells: Sugars Purpose of this lab: To learn about sugars and the test used to identify them. Introduction The organic macromolecules known as sugars are a type of carbohydrate. Carbohydrates are composed of monosaccharides, which are single, sugar unit monomers. Two sugar units linked together are known as a disaccharide. In this lab, we conducted tests on various substances with Bendict’s solution to determine which sample contained sugars. Benedict’s solution is a turquoise blue color and reacts with sugars after being heated in a boiling water bath, resulting in a color change. The color change varies with the concentration of sugar present, with strong positives indicating a high sugar concentration and weaker positives correlating with lesser concentrations of sugar. The color changes are as follows: orange-red (very high), orange (high), yellow-orange (moderate), yellow (low), green (very low), no change in color (no sugar present). Materials and Methods: --6 test tubes marked at 1cm and 3cm from the bottom --Benedict’s reagent --substances to be tested: water (control), glucose solution, onion juice, potato juice, starch suspension, and an unknown substance --hot plate with a beaker filled with water for a boiling water bath Each substance to be tested was filled in a separate test tube to the 1cm mark, with the exception of onion and potato juice, to which 5 drops of each were added to......

...Karen D EN130.1.1 English Composition II Assignment 6_06 December 4, 2013 Compare Online Shopping with Traditional Shopping Online shopping and traditional shopping has as many similarities as differences. Online shopping allows you to shop from the comfort of your home as opposed to traditional shopping, whereas, you would have to leave home to shop. Although traditional shopping allows you to try on, touch, and test a product, online will allow that and even if it’s unsatisfactory, the consumer has to go through the motions to return and exchange. There is, however, more convenience with traditional shopping when it comes to payment for merchandise. With traditional shopping, the options are far more than online shopping. For example, you can pay with cash with traditional shopping with the event that you don’t have credit cards and such. Unlike with online shopping where you must pay with a form of cards. Furthermore, with online shopping, you have the convenience of shopping at a store that is not in your local area, though you would have to pay for shipping and handling, you still have the flexibility to shop at a far away store. As opposed to traditional shopping you would only have access to what’s there near your hometown. Another advantage is having a store that offers online shopping; it would allow you to buy items not normally found in the physical location. Also, if you are a person that doesn’t like a lot of crowds, then online shopping is the......

...Tips for preventing a cold, curing hiccups and insomnia Daree Walker Everest University Online Professor Pincumbe Composition 5002 August 24, 2014 Final Preventing a cold can be as easy as listening to your body, while curing hiccups and insomnia might require using some unusual techniques. In this essay you will find helpful hints to help you rid a cold or hiccups and how to get some sleep at night. My experiences are based on old wives tales and tricks I have used on myself and I have proof that some of these tricks might work for others. Because I have not suffered a cold in many years, I thought I must be doing something right so I would like to share with you my regiment. Also, I will share what I have learned about how to cure hiccups and what my son and I have done to cure our hiccups. These tips are based mostly on old wives tale and tips from the “Help From Heloise” books by Eloise Bowles. Now my tips for curing insomnia are based on my experiences with the insomniac women in my family, who struggle to sleep at night or find themselves awoken from sleep in the wee hours of the morning. However, I do not have this problem of insomnia. So I became curious of the fact that these ladies were not sleeping at night only because I could not understand what they were going through. Sleep to me is like milk, “it does the body good” and I ensure I get the right amount of sleep. My tips to my family were based on my own sleeping rituals or from what I have read...

Composition and Inverse

...Composition and Inverse MAT 222 Instructor Amy Glidewell 19 January 2015 Composition and Inverse When you think of math there are several types of problems that are ment to help prepare for the different skills that you may have. I am going to solve three different problems that were assigned to me. Within he paper I will define what composition and inverse functions are. As stated in the reading , “the notation uses for composition is f composed with g of x or f of g of x” (Dugopolski, 2012). Something that is noticed is that the letters stay in he same order in each expression for the composition. These problems will be graphed and solved further in the paper. The following information was given so I can solve the following expressions. In step one I was given the following finctions: f(x) = 2x + 5, g(x) = x^2 – 3, and h(x) = 7 – x/ 3. To start I am going to compute (f-h) (4) f(4) = 2*4 + 5 = 13 h(4) = (7-4)/3 = 1 (f-h)(4) = f(4) -h(4) = 13 - 1 = 12 Answer: (f-h)(4) = 12 Evaluate the following: (f o g)(x) and (h o g)(x) (f o g)(x) = f(g(x)) = f(x^2-3) = 2(x^2-3)+5 = 2x^2 - 6 + 5 = 2x^2 - 1 (h o g)(x)=h(g(x)) = h(x^2-3) = (7-(x^2-3))/3 = (10-x^2)/3 Transform the g(x) function so that the graph is moved 6 units to the right and 7 units down. Function will be G(x) = (x-6)^2 - 10 Find the inverse function: f^-1(x) and h^-1(x) For finding f^-1(x), replace x by y and f(x) by x in f(x)=2x+5 x = 2y + 5 2y = x-5 y = (x-5)/2 Thus f^-1(x) =......

Composition and Inverse

...Composition and Inverse Functions provide an opportunity for manipulating expressions using different values. These values can help business owners, data analysts, and even the consumer compare rates and data. Functions also extend independent (x) and dependent (y) variables by graphing in the coordinate plane and creating a visual demonstration of the relationship. The following functions will be used in the required problems. f(x) = 2x+5 g(x) = x2+3 h(x) = (7-x)/3 The first task is to compute (f – h)(4). (f – h)(4) = f(4) – h(4) Because of rules of composition, each function may be calculated separately and then subtracted. f(4) = 2(4) + 5 The ‘x’ was replaced with the 4 from the problem. f(4) = 8 + 5 Order of operations was used to evaluate the function. f(4) = 13 h(4) = (7 - 4)/3 The same process is used for h(4) and f(4). h(4) = 3/3 h(4) = 1 (f – h)(4) = 13 – 1 (f – h)(4) = 12 This is the solution after plugging the values in and subtracting. Next, two pairs of the functions will be composed into each other. One option to find the solution for the function, g(x), is to calculate it and then substitute for the ‘x’ value in the f(x). The option used here is to replace the ‘x’ in the ‘f’ function with the ‘g’ function. This means the rule of ‘f’ will work on ‘g’. This means the rule of ‘f’ will work on the problem: (f°g)(x) = f(g(x)) (f° g)(x) = f(g(x)) (f° g)(x) = f(x2 + 3) ‘f’ is now going to work on the rule...

...Buying a Car. Andrew DeMasellis Composition I Amber Minor 01 JUL 2015 When I think of buying a car I think it is one of the largest purchases you can make besides buying a house, plane, or yacht. There are many things to consider when buying a car. First you should consider a budget to buy a car. Are you going to buy it outright, lease, or are you going to finance? Each one of these requires a commitment of your finances and you need to make the best descion. Along with just the purchase price remember that there is maintenance included in what you need to budget. How much will tires cost, oil changes, and brakes? These are all good things to keep in mind. Next would be type, American or Foreign. Do you have a preference based on beliefs or is it something that is not important to you. Another thing to take into consideration is your needs. Do you need a tuck, van, or car? Will one work better for you than the other or is it just about looks or affordability? If you have a spouse and 4 kids is it really smart to by a 2 passenger vehicle? Other things to consider would be brand, color, and model. When I look at buying a car I also take into account “what am I buying it for”. What is the purpose of buying a car and how am I going to utilize it? Many question shall arise when encountering the situation. The best course of action is to determine the why factor. Are you buying it for work or school, do you need it to haul trailers. These are......

...Composition 1.1 Felipe Viveiros de Moura PAT 201 1. “Creaking Door” a. Where and when: This creaking door was recorded on Wednesday, 13th of January in my house located in South State Street. b. Interest and influence: Having lived in this house for about 5 months, the creaking of my door every time I leave my room has become a sound that is part of my daily routine. After listening to all my recordings and selecting the top 8, this was one of the ones that, I believe, captured exactly what I was looking for. c. Techniques: Mic of the recorder was placed very close to the axis of rotation of the door d. Success in capturing sound: For a couple of tries, I could not capture the sound as loud as I intended to. After changing position, recording from inside the room and increasing the recording level, I was able to get the results I wanted. Background sound from my roommates was another difficulty but recording from inside the room helped solve the problem. 2. “Flush” e. Where and when: The flush of a toilet was recorded on Wednesday, 13th of January in my house located in South State Street. f.

Led Composition

...Section 1: Claim: Observable factors that affect the composition of LEDs During our research of gallium arsenide phosphide (GaPxAs1-x), which is a semi-conducting material in the form of light emitting diodes, we observed how properties of the data collected directly correlated to the composition of the LED. The observed and measured properties we were able to notice and calculate during our research were wavelength, color, voltage, and temperature. Using a diffraction grating we first tested the different compositions for which color of light was emitted. Our data as can be seen in appendix 1, on pg. L93 table 1, shows that as the composition shifted from GaP0.40As0.60 to GaP1.00As0.00 the colors emitted, shifted from those associated with longer wavelengths to those of shorter wavelengths. (Red to green) We then set up a scanning spectrometer in order to measure the wavelengths, and as can be seen in our data in appendix 1, on pg. L94 table 2, as well as on the graph in appendix 2, we were able to measure the wavelength of each LED with varying composition. According to our data it can be said that greater bond length equals lower Eg, since lower Eg will result in longer wavelength. For example, GaP1.00As0.00 has the shortest wavelength and the shortest bond length, and as a result has the largest band gap energy. From the same data we can also conclude that greater bond strength equals greater Eg due to the fact that GaP1.00As0.00 has the highest bond strength. The......
