“End of Watch”

"End of Watch" is one of the best police movies in recent years and not just because I think so, a beautiful fusion of performances and great action. Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Peña are Taylor and Zavala, two Los Angeles street cops who bend a few rules but must be acknowledged as heroes. After too many police movies about officers who essentially use their badges as licenses to run wild, it's inspiring to realize that these men take their mission to serve and protect with such seriousness they're willing to risk their lives.
Taylor and Zavala fit the template of the "cop buddy movie," but "End of Watch" plays such a deeper role than that. They've been partners for years and are so close that Zavala's wife, Gabby (Natalie Martinez), and Taylor's girlfriend, Janet (Anna Kendrick), become more or less like sisters throughout the film. The two cops are transferred to a tough, largely populated Mexican-American district, where their intel and sometimes foolish persistence to not give up leads them across the plains of a Mexican cartel operating in Los Angeles. The assignment they “put themselves on” is more fit for a detective, but they don’t the pure adrenaline rush that ensues throughout the movie, and eventually becomes so dangerous to the cartel that a hit is ordered against them.
As the movie opens, Taylor is filming a video documentary about his job, for a film class he's taking. "End of Watch" begins with his narration about the nature of his job. All through the movie, Jake Gyllenhaal reveals a side of him that we rarely see in other movies, one of the most stunning performances to date. Michael Pena gives one of the performances of his career as the other cop, and the reality of their relationship is on great through the whole film. We wouldn't believe some of the things they do if we didn't believe who they are. “End of…...

One day, there is a bridge master and his son. The bridge master loves his son very much. He loves him more than anything else. They lived in a happy and simple life. Every day, the bridge master would sit by the river with his son and watch the trains pass in front them. The bridge master’s work is to lift the bridge so that the boats may pass underneath the track. But one day, when he left his son to buy him a drink, there is a train coming…not knowing that the tracks were lifted. The son was worried that the tracks were still lifted so he tried to reach for the lever. Panicking, the boy lost his balance and was stuck at the trapdoor. When the bridge master saw what happened, he did not know what to do. He was confused whether he will lift up the lever, letting his son die in front......

The End

...The End by Charles Olaleye It was January 1st 2015 when millions of people were shocked to hear about the death of Harry Styles. Police found him dead in the kitchen of his house. There was no murder weapon found on the scene of the death. When other members of One Direction were asked about the death of their former friend. They said they knew nothing of what could have happened to him. They said “he seemed like totally fine” What they did know was that he said he had to meet someone in a cemetery 10 minutes before he died. No one knows if that could have been the reason of his death. One month later police think they have a lead on the semi-recent shocking death of Harry Styles. A knife was found next to the dead body of Harry Styles. His body for some reason was found next to a tombstone that said Niall Horan on it. A little weird? The knife had no fingerprints on it and the body had no blood on it and looked completely fine. Then what could have caused this mysterious death? The grave under the tombstone that said Niall Horan on it was dug up by investigators and another clue was found. A hammer was inside the grave with a dent on it and the initials Z.M which could have stood for Zayn Malik. No one knows why that would be. Two months after the death of Harry Styles investigators have another lead on the investigation. Behind the tombstone that had the name Niall Horan on it was a gun that had the name Liam Payne on it ironically. Investigators asked Liam if......

...ensure investment would be of a profitable enterprise6. Rothschild’s importance was not that of a mere fiscal nature; it should not be forgotten that Rothschild was head of one of the most successful financing firms in the world, and having invested over a million pounds in Rhodes’ company, Rothschild would not have been hesitant to push forward financial advice in order to ensure corporate success. It can easily be said that without the financial assistance of Rothschild, the amalgamation process would in all likelihood not have occurred; or if it had, Kimberley Central would have become the company with a monopolistic stronghold on diamond mining in the area, leaving Rhodes out of the picture. However Rothschild business with Rhodes did not end at consolidation of mines in Kimberley. A promising article by Hamilton Smith of the Exploration Company7 (initially a Rothschild founded and funded company)8 outlined the prevalence of gold in the Witwatersrand area. Having already set up business with Rhodes and gold mining in the Witwatersrand, Rothschild issued the South African Republic a £2.5 million government bond for the construction of ‘Railways… and other Public Works within the state’9. However the loan was primarily for the construction of railways, specifically the Delagoa-Railway ‘as a means to facilitate deep-level mining in the Transvaal’10. Rhodes was no stranger to the loan and was indeed in support of it, affirming his expansionist intentions to Rothschild in......

In the End...

...Djenaba O’Connor Potter STS-900 20 April 2015 In The End… In the Heaven Scenario, all life on Earth will be subject to what technology wants to happen to it. Technology has progressed to the point of total control, but there is nothing to worry about. The technology is safe and everyone loves it. They use it to focus on the beauty and culture and the other fine things in life. Ideas that weren’t possible have come to existence. In the Hell Scenario, the technology that was supposed to safe us ends up condemning us. We will fight with one another, nation against nation, to gain control of the fast growing power of the technologies we built. But we will be so helpless, no type of agreement can be reached. Just like in the Heaven Scenario, things that were impossible before will come to pass. Only this time, they will be horrid things. In the Prevail Scenario, we humans begin to slowly take back the world we created for ourselves. Though technology will always be a part of who we are, what we do, and how we do it, we will control the technology. Not the other way around. As James Lanier put it, “Humans have an uncanny history of muddling through.” In other words, we will find a way to become relevant once more. We will find a way to come back from the corner we let technology back us into, and we will come out strong on the other side. No, it will not be easy, but it can be done. I am very much a people person and do not care so much for the many technological......

...ITDM IT WATCH ON VIRTUALIZATION SUBMITTED BY GROUP 9 CONTENTS 1. INTRODUCTION TO VIRTUALIZATION 2. TYPES OF VIRTUALIZATION 3. ADVANTAGES OF VIRTUALIZATION 4. VIRTUALIZATION IN INDIA 5. REFERENCES INTRODUCTION Virtualization is the creation of a virtual (rather than actual) version of something, such as an operating system, a server, a storage device or network resources. In layman's term, virtualization allows you to run an independent operating system within an existing operating system using the existing hardware resources. So if you want to learn another operating system like Linux, you can use virtualization to run Linux on top of the existing operating system. Virtualization is the abstraction of IT resources, separating their physical instance and boundaries from their function. Virtualization has brought important innovation to IT Virtualization concept was first developed by IBM in the 1960s to fully utilize mainframe hardware by logically partitioning them into virtual machines. These partitions will allow mainframe computers to perform multiple tasks and applications at the same time.. During the 1980s and 1990s, desktop computing and x86 servers become available and so the virtualization technology was discarded eventually. Client-server applications and the emergence of Windows and Linux made server computing significantly......

...1. Write the numbers to be added in two horizontal lines, below each other, aligning the decimal points. If the number is a whole number (ie. no decimal), add a decimal point to the end of the number. Add zeroes to empty spaces on the right to line up the columns. Ads by Google Math Worksheets  Free Math Worksheets K-8 Math Practice www.thegreatmartinicompany.com 2. 2 Starting on the right, add the numbers in that column and put the answer directly under the column. If the answer is greater than 10, place the last number under the column and any remaining numbers above the column directly to the left (commonly referred to as "carry over"). 3. 3 Add all columns in the same manner as step 2, being careful to remember any numbers that carried over from the previous column. 4. 4 Place a decimal point in the answer directly below the decimal point in the numbers above. Counting from the decimal point to the left, put a comma after every third digit. Adding by Regrouping One of the wonderful things about addition is that the order doesn't matter --- assuming you're adding only positive numbers, of course! This flexibility allows you to rearrange your addition problems to suit yourself. Some examples: 27 + 19 can become (27 + 3) + 16 which then becomes 30 + 16 for a final answer of 46 54 + 38 can become (50 + 30) + (4 + 8) which then becomes 80 + 12 for a final answer of 92 125 + 16 can become 125 + 5 + 11 or possibly 125 + 10 + 6, for a total of......

Earthquake Watch

...EQ Watch Review By doing my earthquake watch and taking this class, I have gained a lot of knowledge about earthquakes. There are so many earthquakes that occur in just one day. Before my earthquake watch, I never would have known that earthquakes were this common. I found out that even we humans can cause earthquakes. Building new structures like dams and plants may cause earthquakes. There are also a lot of hazards that come with earthquakes that I had no idea about. Ground shaking, ground deformation, aftershocks, landslides, liquefaction, tsunamis, and fire can all come from earthquakes. Once an earthquake occurs, there are consequences right behind it. Earthquake occurrence happens because of plate tectonics. Plate tectonics says that the Earth's lithosphere is broken into a mosaic of oceanic and continental plates which can slide over the aesthenosphere, which is the uppermost layer of the mantle. The plates are in constant motion. Where they interact important geological processes take place, such as the formation of mountain belts, earthquakes, and volcanoes. Therefore, the movement of the plates causes most earthquakes that happen around the globe. The Elastic Rebound Theory was very helpful in explaining to me the way that energy is stored in a fault and released during an earthquake. When you stretch out a rubber band and let it go, it goes back to its original shape, just like what happens around the area of the fault before and after an earthquake.......
