DESTRUCTION AS A HOBBY 2 Terrorism has some appealing attributes as an instrument of war because it lets the less dominant units or nations to retaliate at the dominant units. Some terrorist groups cannot do serious damage against the United States in a bona fide war. The United States is the largest country there is so therefore the other countries do not have enough soldiers or enough money that’s needed to develop a proper military regimen that is solid enough to destroy the United States (internationalpolicydigest.org). The same applies to several nations of the world. Terrorism becomes very appealing because it lets the terrorists achieve something that they could not achieve through any traditional measures.
As for whether terrorism will become “the accepted method” of warfare, this depends on how the situation is looked at. Terrorism has been the technique of warfare that is generally accepted by pathetic groups as a way of fighting tough groups (internationalpolicydigest.org). In that sense, it already is “the accepted method” of warfare for the weak and pathetic. Nonetheless, if we are speaking about the beliefs of the nation as a whole, terrorism is not likely to become ethically suitable. Terrorism causes too many fatalities among guiltless inhabitants for it to become ethically suitable to the huge mass of individuals.
Terrorism will remain popular and accepted among weak groups and some weak countries because it allows them to hurt whomever they feel like hurting or terrorizing.…...

Dance and Destruction

...Dance and Destruction Hinduism art during the 11th century was filled a variety of divine aspects of philosophy and the worship of many gods. The most mysterious form of art from Hindu culture that caught my attention was that of the dancing Shiva. Shiva the Destroyer has many faces in Hindu culture but the one that I will focus on in this discussion is Shiva Nataraja. The dancing Shiva is one of the most classic and loved symbols that captured the essence of Hindu culture and still remains timeless. To understand why the dancing Shiva is iconic art form we will look at the history and properties that make the Shiva Nataraja symbolic. The word Nataraja refers to the dancing form of Shiva due to the fact that Shiva has many forms. Nataraja meaning Lord of Dance or King of Dancers refers to the specific representation of the four armed dancing Shiva surrounded by a ring of fire. Trying to understand the dancing Shiva is not easy concept because Shiva after all is the god of Destruction. The best way to understand this concept of Shiva Nataraja is not to think of him as a destroyer but as a transformer. The appealing aspect of this Nataraja is that explains a story about the transformation of life. In Hindu religion and culture we know that things must be created, preserved and destroyed, and they are represented by gods. The same can be said about energy or life itself and this is why it is such an interesting and appealing as art and as science. The dance of......

Ridgeline Destruction

...October19, 1941 at approximately 6:56 pm a spinning two blade wind turbine began producing power on a hilltop known as Grandpas Knob in the town of West Rutland Vermont. This turbine ran for approximately 3.5 years, suffering numerous malfunctions and shutdowns. The project was abandoned in the spring of 1945 after one of the apparatus’s eight ton blades snapped off and crashing to the ground. While impressions on a whole deemed this pioneering experiment in wind power production a failure, the mountain top itself was spared from any massive destruction from this small scale wind project. Now Sixty-seven years later, a new generation of wind power turbines is being considered at this very same site and the surrounding area. Although this newly proposed wind farm along six miles of ridgeline is estimated to produce 50 megawatts of electricity and provide enough power for 15,000 households, this project will result in the irreversible destruction of this mountain top ecosystem. The environmental costs greatly outweigh any financial benefits that this proposed project offers. Background In early 2007 a renewable energy company named Noble power, a company that specialized in wind turbine construction, met with local officials to float the idea of a wind park on the Pittsford ridgeline known as Grandpa’s Knob. Noble ran into financial problems as a result of the 2008 recession and was forced to close its Rutland office in January 2009.Another event happened in 2008 when......

The Destruction of Youth

...Professor Online Principles of English Composition I November 3, 2013 The Destruction of Youth Mom and Dad are sitting on the couch watching the television. The food on the table is more than enough for a family of two. Located somewhere in this home are two children. They have not been outside any time, since Friday afternoon after school. There have been all kinds of arguments since the day “it” arrived in this house. There have been many meals missed since “it” showed up. The children are back talking their parents, and missing their homework assignments resulting in falling grade point averages. Out of all of the possible causes, for all of these problems, the video game system is the “it” that lies at the core of the issues. Video games are destroying today’s youth with their addictive nature, their lack of morality, and the ease of access to mature games. The addictive nature of the video games children play is quite revolting. Most children, that actively play videos games, often have a rather glazed over look in their eyes. Like the junkies shown on television, the only time they lose this glaze is if someone starts talking about a video game. According to an article written by Kara Shemin, “a recent study published in the journal Pediatrics indicates that heavy video gaming can become habit-forming for children, pre-teens, and teens and lead to depression, social phobias, and even poor academic performance.” (Shemin) Amazingly, it does not matter what game, or...

Screen Printing :: a Practical Hobby

...If you are looking for a creative hobby full of self-expression and passion, screen printing may be right for you. From the tactile nature of the process, to the smell and bright colors of the inks, screen printing can be a sensuous experience. However, one of the most exciting aspect of screen printing is the ease that a beginner will find themselves becoming proficient and successful in the technique. With a low overhead for supplies, a high level of creativity and freedom of expression, not to mention the scalability as a practical business opportunity, screen printing offers the flexibility to either focus on personal fulfillment, or grow into a full scale business. Consider the following points before dismissing screen printing as a practical hobby. For most, the initial appeal of screen printing is the low cost required to get started. For as little as fifty dollars, one can purchase all the necessary components to immediately begin printing personalized designs. On top of that, no technology is required in creating your designs. You do not need a computer or expensive software to get started. Anything from dark paper, cardboard, or just a sheet of white paper and a black pen is all you need to get you on your way to creating your own t-shirts and posters. That being said, don't think that you need to be a graphic designer in order to create fun and exciting t-shirts. Whether you are creating the shirts to sell, or just for wearing around the house, the......

Hobbies

...My Hobby By: Luann Syers I first began cross stitching 29 years ago, when I was 8 months pregnant with my oldest daughter. The reason I decided to start this hobby was that, my oldest step daughter had been doing some sample cross stitching and I thought wow that is something I could do. So, after a visit to several craft stores I found a baby blanket with zoo animals on it to begin trying my hand at this. This blanket was going to be for my baby. I chose this blanket because it was a stamped cross stitch (one that has the imagines already printed on the blanket), so all I had to do was start by following the color chart and making the “x”;s that color. This seemed fun at first but, got very boring as all you had to do was follow the color chart and stitch. After finishing this blanket, which consisted of using a backing material and sewing in different sections of the blanket to keep the backing on so that the baby could not pull out the stitches or hurt them. The material used to hold the backing on was yarn that you took a needle and threaded the needle with the yarn and then you stitched the yarn through both the cross stitch and the backing and tied it off in a knot and did this about 100 times to make sure the backing was tight and then you sewed with a sewing machine around the edges to make sure everything was secure. This project was very nice and ready for my baby, but, after further investigation I found counted cross stitch, which is......

Extended Destruction

...RUNNING HEAD: EXTENDED DESTRUCTION EXTENDED DESTRUCTION ENG 201 Composition II April 15, 2013   Technology has changed significantly over the past 20 years, TV’s are high definition, computers are reaching extreme speeds while staying colder even in tablet to phone form, and entertainment is marketed as virtual data. One of the leading changes in entertainment today is video games. There are now many forms to video games, virtual reality, consoles, PC gaming, simulators, and sports that are now controlled by body in the consumers very own living room. Video games have easily rivaled the video industry and also contribute to movie interests. Movies are being made after video games and games are being made after books, although the biggest and largest difference to the movie industry compared to video games is the after the point of sale distribution. What brings this very large difference between the two is the internet. Once the Internet was introduced to the gaming consoles at large, consumers were given opportunity to extend content. With the industry growing as large as it has and the internet bringing in these new opportunities, there are now politics, large and vocal gaming, and a larger hunger for money just like the video environment. Extended content is destroying the future of gaming and the standard price for digital content should not be set to a fixed full price. When video games were first introduced......

Hobbies

...Hobbies There are many different types of hobbies. There are indoor hobbies like baking, sewing, ceramic painting or even designing and building gadgets. Then there are the outdoor hobbies, like gardening, fishing, flying, sports and many more. Having a hobby is a useful thing. It allows you to do something that you enjoy doing and relaxes the body and mind. Some people have just one hobby but there are many others who enjoy several. Nonetheless, many agree that doing something that you like during your free time can be very therapeutic. Even more so if you can give others joy through your hobby. My father is one example of this. My father retired from work about eight years ago. Before his retirement, he was the head of one department in a big company. Even though he had a secretary, my father was burdened with paperwork. His evenings were usually spent in his study room and he only came out for dinner and to wish his children goodnight. Weekends meant he had to go out to entertain his clients. He seldom had free time for himself or for his own family. So when he retired, he underwent a complete change of life, which flabbergasted him. He had all this free time to spare but nothing to do. He has never had a hobby only because he never had the time, so to occupy the free time he had then, he tried his hand on almost everything. He started with going fishing with his friend. But gave up because he fell asleep and almost fell into the pond. Then he tried gardening. That......

Creative Destruction

...Assignment #1 “Creative Destruction” 1) Describe the process of creative destruction in your words An essential feature of capitalism, creative destruction is a continuous process characterized by moments of radical innovation in products, production methods, organizational structures and markets that provide decisive advantages over legacy operations. This disrupts and fundamentally changes established industries, with the resulting efficiencies increasing the productive capacity of the economy. Even during the periods of comparative quiet that separate these rushes of innovation, creative destruction is still active as the results of previous innovations are absorbed and assimilated into the economy. The nature of creative destruction requires that the trajectory of the capitalist system is analyzed over the long run, as opposed to at a single point in time. In summary, creative destruction is the process whereby old economic systems are destroyed and replaced by decisively more efficient structures. 2) Explain how the typical entrepreneur behaves according to Schumpeter. What objective is he following? The typical entrepreneur is the businessman who is disciplined by the constant threat of future competition. He understands the process of creative destruction and the precarious nature of his present position and therefore, regardless of his current competitive landscape, his behavior approximates that of a firm engaged in perfect competition. This contrasts......

Sadists and Their Destruction

...  Keesan P           Pascal 1  Mr. Davis     th  Pre­AP Literature 11​ 11/11/2015     Sadists And Their Destruction  Ken Kesey, Edith Wharton, and Tom Schulman all have created literary works involving  the sadistic enforcer of conformity. These characters take pleasure in the terror and pain they  instill in those who reside under them and have been also shown to go to quite drastic and  destructive measures to ensure the conformity of the populace they command, even completely  destroying someone’s life for “the good of all.” Within these works Kesey, Wharton, and  Schulman use the sadistic Nurse Ratched, Zeena, and Headmaster Nolan to show their use of  drastic methods to enforce conformity and the destruction of characters’ lives to show this.  Nurse Ratched takes a certain sadistic motherly pleasure in her position of conformist  enforcement on the ward. As soon as her entrance in the first scene Chief Bromden interprets her  expression during her walk to her office as being “pleased and peaceful with the thought”(Kesey  4) of her duties for the day, which involve watching over the patients of the ward. She orders and  controls the patients in a manner that diminishes their masculinity, and she takes pleasure in the  fear that she causes and the power she commands. Another instance of this is when Nurse  Ratched remembers the time when she had a patient named Taber (who she eventually made  docile through electroshock therapy tre...

...Daniel Colbetzor Professor Anne R. Maltempi College Composition 2 April 2012 Hobbies By: Daniel Colbetzor I am the youngest of a two job working, single parent of six kids. So to say I did not “see” my mom a whole lot, is an understatement. My brothers, (which there are four of them) and my sister kept an eye on me and had a hand in raising me. My sister pretty much did all the work with the feeding and clothes and stuff. But my brothers would be there if I got in trouble at school or missed my curfew. Everyone in my family had different tastes of music. I’m going to show you why I can say I have an eclectic taste of music. Like I mentioned before, my mom worked 2 jobs to support us. And to be honest, I don’t remember going without. But there were those Sundays mom would have off. It was like a double edge sword. We were happy she got a day off and we get to see her. But, we also knew that meant we were going to be cleaning the house all day! She would wake us up and make a most excellent breakfast (Bill and Ted reference). Then we would let our stomachs rest while we sat at the dining room table telling her all she that have happened. Then it was cleaning time. My mom was a hardcore classic country fan. To this day, George Jones’ “He stopped loving her today” sparks up memories and the smell of Pine-Sol. George Jones, Conway Twitty, Kenny Rogers, Dolly Parton, were blasting from our......

Trail Running as a Hobby

...Trail Running as a Hobby Abstract This is a short essay about trail running as a hobby. A number of health benefits are associated with running and a related discussion is seen. It also provides encouragement for the reader to try trail running personally. As a boy I ran everywhere. On the ball court, on the field, to the barn and the pond, I ran and ran and ran. But as an adult, like most others, with the daily the activities of raising a family and making a living, running seemed to fade away. About ten years ago, after gaining twenty pounds since high school, I started running again. Running has multiple health benefits and it’s very inexpensive. It’s my favorite hobby and I’m a big advocate for running. First and foremost, running is good for your health. It’s well documented that aerobic exercise helps maintain a healthy heart, and running is an excellent source of aerobic exercise. Many people have eliminated problems with high blood pressure by incorporating running several times per week. Additionally, by running one can gain muscle strength and improve lung capacity. These are two of the top ten indicators of longevity, which represents both length of life and level of health. Running is also an excellent stress reliever. I find that when I have the most on my plate, running allows me to clear the cobwebs from my mind and think more clearly. As I begin to run, I think, breath in, breath out, left foot, right foot and the stress in my body begins to lift.......
