Speed is important but in my opinion you must master the task first, then you can find ways that allow you to be fast and efficient. I do have areas in my life in which I think I could improve my speed and that would be to stop procrastinating and become more punctual, that’s with my personal life I am never on time for anything. On my job I think I have my skills mastered so speed is of no big concern. Yes I feel guilty when I have to rush and that’s prioritizing speed on many levels, getting ready, driving, just an all the way round tense situation.
The areas in my life were I feel the greatest time crunch would be in my personal life with family events, church, I am not able to get there on time. But I am able to get to work on time but I think it’s only because I know there are consequences for being tardy. And with a family event it’s to flexible and no hard consequences to face. Oh yes I always feel guilty because you interrupt the service and there’s always something that you miss and then my stress level increase. How I have learned to handle time crunch is considering all the people involved and how I would react. So I now have learned to not procrastinate and plan ahead.
The area in my life in which I was always afraid to speed up was doing paper work to quickly, I would then have to sacrifice my leisure time. The way I can speed up with my paper work would be to do some every day and not leave it all for one day. Too much leisure time and not work.

Road Speed Limit

...Road Speed Limits Professor: Kanyo 08/03/2011 Mid-Michigan Community College Abstract Most of nations have their own road speed limits. This is also an argumentative problem in the modern society. A number of people think that it is necessary to use speed limits to protect people because they believe that lower speed limit can decrease fatalities, injuries and property damage. Others believe that we need to change this policy because it cannot correspond with the development of car quality. According to the data from many car manufactures, the technology of vehicles has changed a lot. I think we do not need to maintain the old standard. We should make new policy to accommodate new technology and new society. Lower speed do not means safer and not fast speed means dangers. I am the one who wish government can change this policy because I think that changing the speed limit cannot only save our time but also boost our economy. Road Speed Limits Most of countries have their own speed limit; it is used to regulate the speed of road vehicles. Speed limits may define maximum, minimum or no speed limit and are normally indicated using a traffic sign. Speed limits are commonly set by the legislative bodies of nations or provincial governments and enforced by national or regional police or judicial bodies. The first speed limit legislation was created in the United Kingdom with the Locomotive Acts. Drives are required to control at a safe speed......

Speed Limit

...Do you think the current highway speed limit in Canada is appropriate? How would decide whether or not it should be increased or decreased? Considering Canada has nearly 900,000 kilometers of road, I am a little surprised the topic of speed limit optimization hasn’t been more of a hot topic for government agencies. Canada has a maximum speed limit of 100km/hour on multi-lane highways. For two lane highways, the speed limit remains the same at 100km/hour. In urban areas the speed limit drops to 60km/hour on major roads, and down a further 10 km/hour for a speed limit of 50km/hour in residential areas. As is typical in any country around the world, the speed limit in school and playground areas is reduced further (AngloInfoCanada.Com). If the speed limit were raised, the marginal benefits would be: 1. Reduced travel times 2. Congestion relief 3. Higher productivity of transportation of goods The marginal costs associated with a speed limit increase would be: 1. The cost of more patrol vehicles and police presence 2. Lost revenue from assigned speeding tickets 3. The cost of increased fuel consumption When looking at the marginal benefits, there can be assumptions made on increased productivity, reduced travel times and congestion relief, however there are no real numbers or evidence to support these statements as they are natural assumptions. The current infrastructure in Canada accommodates the number of vehicles on the road, yet there is frustration with congestion...

Speed Zones

...SPEED ZONE STUDY March 14, 2013 INTRODUCTION Recently in many areas of the State of Texas the speed limit has been changed. While some areas have remained at the 70 mph limit that many drivers have become accustom to, other areas have seen increases from 75 mph up to 85 mph. But, what effect does this have on drivers that travel between these areas with varying speed limits? This study is being conducted to determine what these changes in speed limits have on drivers. With the current speed limit of 70 mph, how fast do driver truly drive? And given the average speed it is the goal of this study to determine if drivers will increase their speeds proportionally in the new high speed zones. While there is much debate on the speed limits and the effects it has on drivers, this study will serve to provide an accurate study on whether or not driver actually pay any attention to the posted speed limits. In addition the driving habits of today’s driver will be examined in relation to posted speed limits on many of the Texas highways. ABSTRACT The Speed Zone Study will be conducted in an effort to better understand how the recent changes in the posted speed limit affect drivers on those highways. To better understand how these changes affect drivers this study will monitor traffic in areas with different speed limits. The goal is to determine if driver adhere to the posted speed limit or if drivers exceed the posted speed limit. If drivers exceed the posted speed......

High Speed Rail

...Question: Critically analyse HR planning and develop a recruitment and selection plan for the UK High Speed Railway Project. 1.0 Introduction Within this report, the main influential factors which effect the development and construction of the High Speed Rail Project (HSR), will be identified and explored. Because approximately 20 per cent of all budgeted spending for transport in the UK between now and 2021 is allocated for HSR, strong human recourses and a robust recruitment and selection plan are vital to its success, (gov.uk, 2013). This essay will analyse the strengths of existing HR strategies and choose suitable methods for recruitment, in the context of a large scale, long term national, government backed project. The key decisions will centre round union relations, agency recruitment versus long term employment contracts, potential of hiring from within existing similar industries and taking on employees new to the industry. This essentially pits useful experience of industry employees against employees with fresh perspectives to influence a change in culture, from other railway companies. The findings of this essay will be applicable to the actual HSR project as all theory and studies used within, are based on academic sources. This essay is structured to firstly explore the landscape surrounding this project and human recourse issues in general, before presenting conclusions. 2.0 Development In order to identify the main issues associated......

Speed and Progress

...In Social Time: The Heartbeat of Culture by Robert Levine with Ellen Wolff, author talked about different time senses in different countries and he shared his personal experience of different time senses in the article. After reading this article , one sentence got all my attention: “ Speed is frequently confused with progress”( page81,line3). For me, my parents and grandparents always warn me that time waits for no man, so I should finish things I need to do as soon as possible. Sometimes I can get really confused that do I really have to be that hurry? Can I slow myself down to finish something? So, when I saw this sentence, I really want to know if speed is progress. However, a question is not always wind up with a right answer or a wrong answer. We all know that time flies. As an old saying goes, “Time flies like an arrow , and time lost never returns.” Our life time is limited, but things we can experience in the world is unlimited. Faster we are, more meaningful things we can try. So, In many people’s opinion, speed definitely is progress. In the article, author shared his experience teaching in a Brazil college. Student there go to class around half an hour late and leave the class around half an hour late too, which means they are being late to do next thing for one hour or more. Nowadays, our life is so wonderful but very challenging at the same time. As a college student in the US, if i dont finish my work on time, I am not gonna get good grades. And if I am......

The handbook was developed by CTRE and funded by the Iowa Highway Research Board (TR455). The handbook describes straightforward trafficstudy procedures to help local agencies “get their arms” around specific traffic-related questions or potential problems. Data collected from these studies can be critical to decision making and can help agencies communicate more effectively with community members and local officials. All procedures outlined in the handbook and described below follow national standards. Figure 1. Example stopwatch spot speed study layout Figure 2. Example radar meter spot speed study layout Spot speed studies are used primarily to determine the distribution of traffic speeds, or vehicle speed percentiles, at a specific location. These data help traffic engineers determine and/or evaluate traffic operations and traffic control practices at specific locations; establish design elements for roadways, pedestrian walkways, and bikeways; assess roadway safety questions; and make other traffic safety-related analyses. Rules of thumb For spot speed studies, a sample size of at least 50 and preferably 100 vehicles......

The Speed Math Bible

... The Speed Math Bible written by Yamada Takumi, with the special collaboration of Danilo Lapegna Transform your brain into an electronic calculator and master the mathematical strategies to triumph in every challenge! "The 101 bibles" series More Ebooks ..Ahashare.com I - The Speed Math Bible I'm quite sure we could all agree about a fact: the traditional way to teach mathematics has a lot of structural problems, and in most of cases it doesn't really help students to get confident with the subject. In fact, too many students finish their schooling still having a real "mathematical illiteracy", united with a burning hatred of everything concerning numbers and operations. In particular, talking about classic method of teaching mathematics, I'm strongly of the opinion that: It's really poor incentive for individual creativity: in fact, too many times school will teach you that the proper method for performing a set of calculations i s "rigidly" one, and that everything should always be made in the same way. This obviously can't do much more than boring every student and generating the feeling that the matter itself, rather than improving one's mental skills, actually shrinks them, gradually transforming him/her into something that's more similar to an industrial machine. This book, however, is designed to go far beyond this restricted vision and will teach you that the classic approach is not the only possible approach and that every set of mathematical calculations......

...os Angeles SWAT officers Jack Traven and Harry Temple thwart an attempt by a bomber to hold an elevator full of people for ransom. They corner the bomber, but he grabs Harry. Jack shoots Harry in the leg, forcing the bomber to release him. He turns and runs around a corner, apparently dying in an explosion. Jack and Harry are praised by their superior, Lieutenant "Mac" McMahon. Later, Jack sees a city bus explode. The bomber contacts him, explaining that a similar bomb is rigged on another bus, and will get activated if it goes over 50 miles per hour (80 km/h) and blow up when the speed drops below 50. The bomber demands a larger ransom and says he will set off the bomb if passengers are offloaded. Jack races through traffic and manages to board the moving bus. However, it is already going over 50: the bomb is armed. Jack explains the situation to the driver, Sam, but then a panicked small-time criminal on the bus, fearing Jack is going to arrest him, fires his gun, wounding Sam. Passenger Annie Porter takes Sam's place behind the wheel while Jack explains the situation to everyone aboard. Jack examines the bomb under the bus and phones Harry, who uses clues to identify the bomber as a former police officer. The police clear a route for the bus to a closed-down freeway. Mac insists they offload the passengers onto a pacing flatbed truck, but Jack warns about the bomber's demands. The bomber allows the officers to offload the injured Sam, but detonates an explosive under the...

However, often the technological developments are working in the benefit of humankind evolution, but in the detriment of the nature. High-speed rails are a model of such solutions, meant to improve humans’ lives. Their high speeds (between 200 and 431 km/hour), and their easy boarding (the time spent in boarding is less than 30 minutes, depending on the travelling class), transform the meaning of travelling, making it a real experience. Moreover, the high-speed rails lead to indirect benefits such as allowing the possibility to travel for business purposes, or to working relocation. On the other hand, indirectly, high-speed rails create negative outcomes: urban agglomerations because of this efficient transportation mode, automatically lead to people deserting the rural regions,......

Neighborhood Speed Control

...Neighborhood Speed Control By Charles Russell, 21 May 2011 Thesis: Changing our neighborhood traffic speed so everyone can be safe, when they want to take a walk, jog down the road and or even ride their bikes but most important, protecting their most valuable asset; their children. There is a beautiful upscale Washington DC suburb called “Kingstown” located in Alexandria, VA. This is the area my family and I decided to live about five years ago. We purchase a townhouse located off a street called “Chelsea Search Way” which is a cuddly sac off another street named “Summer Ridge.” This is the main street going through our neighborhood and links many cuddle sacs together. Summer Ridge is like one big loop that turns off of Kingstown Village Parkway and then reconnects after a mile and a half. Summer Ridge is one of the liveliest streets neighborhoods you would ever see. Everywhere you look there are small children playing, people walking their dogs, joggers running and bicyclist’s riding. The only problem with this is that this neighborhood could be one of the most dangerous places because there is a lot of traffic going up and down this road. Each year over 4,000 sons, daughters, mothers & fathers were killed while walking in their neighborhoods or crossing streets. Fairfax County must not understand that there is a problem here, because the speed limit was set at 25 miles per hour, which I believe is way too fast for such a playground. Not only the speed is the......

Home Network Speed

...Home Network Speed Name Wilmington University INTRODUCTION- The Speed test was carried out for my home network through the period from 8/31/15 to 10/13/2015. Various screen shots were taken, and with the help of them, the graph was plotted. The different type of the network pattern was seen. The different changes were found while performing these tests. The jitter shown variations from 17 to 175 ms. One of the reason for this cause is network congestion. It can be at the router interfaces or in a provider or carrier network if the circuit has not been provisioned correctly. There is a variation in ping from 11 to 14 ms. As the there is inadequate bandwidth a ping becomes variable. In addition, the speed claimed by Comcast is 100mbs but it showing minimum speed of 4.60 mbps and maximum of 13.25 mbps. ANALYSIS: With the graph's assistance, I can watch the general pattern of net index and unpredictable values of ping and jitter for my home system. My ISP is Comcast. As indicated by this chart, I can say that Comcast is not ready to satisfy the speed that was guaranteed for my agreement. Variations of Ping and Jitter prompts lessened reaction both for upload and download speeds. I have utilized different devices, for example, Smartphone, three tablets to the same modem/switch that made the heap on my home system. Particularly amid evening time and late evenings, I have seen a drop in the speed. I think my plan ought to be checked that will help me to get great speed for......

Connection Speed Simulation Report

...#54406 Report Connection speed simulations are of great help when determining the best type of connection for your use. There are different types of connections with different speeds and characteristics just as there are different types of users, both at home and at big corporations. The budget they posses is what will determine just how much of a top quality connection they can get. Download Speed = 20kbps Utilization averages about 80% for downloads and about 2% for uploads. The high utilization of 80% does not give much available bandwidth for potential new applications or users. The Response Time is in the range of 5 to 7.5 seconds, too much and too long. This slow connection can get overloaded quite easily and would be ideal for personal use in a home. Download Speed = 40kbps This connection offers twice the speed of the last connection. Its Utilization averages 42% for downloads and about 2% for uploads. It can be seen in the simulation that twice the speed can mean twice as much bandwidth, or as close as it can get to twice as much bandwidth. Even though there are better sources for higher bandwidth, this particular connection is a decent one for a low budget user. In terms of Response Time, this connection ranges from 2.0 to 2.5 seconds. That’s more than twice the response time seen in the 20kbps connection, meaning that this connection can still be overloaded, but will require a more stern use by an equally stern user. Download Speed = 512kbps This......
