Retrocasualty in Time Travel - ... In defiance to the “butterfly effect” – by implying some events are, in a sense, “sterile” from influencing the future – a few theories do just that. In order to justify this “sterility”, multiple time lines are assumed to exist which interact with one another. One such theory that assumes this is the harmony theory: “This teleological theory suggests that the universe tends toward harmony and will correct itself even if a person, event or idea “destroys” any one particular time line. For example, if one were to create a time machine, travel back in time and kill Hitler before his rise to power in an effort to save the lives of six million Jews, the Holocaust would nevertheless have to happen—even without Hitler's presence—because in our universe, the events of World War II, including the Holocaust, must take place in order for the United States and the U.S.S.R to become a superpower and use its influence to help create the United Nations, which in turn helped create the modern state of Israel....   [tags: Science ]

Technology - Progress of Interstellar Travel - The Progress of Interstellar Travel           The (un)likelihood of extraterrestrial       visitation is probably one of the       most debated aspects of the Extraterrestrial Hypothesis, the answer being       an essential component to the validity of the ETH. After all, the assumed       unlikeliness of interstellar travel has become the cornerstone of those       who resist the ETH as an explanation for UFOs. So, does extraterrestrial       visitation necessarily require all sorts of "unlikely" science, or is it       possible to accomplish interstellar travel using conventional wisdom....   [tags: Exploratory Essays Research Papers]

The Impact of Travel on the Evironment - The Impact of Travel on the Evironment Human history has been defined by movement and expansion, as humans slowly moved throughout the globe. Even after humans had populated the entire world, humans continued to travel for many reasons: war, trade, adventure, and religion. It would seem that the human species is filled with inveterate travelers. Throughout history, those nations and civilizations that had the best modes of transportation seemed to have a real competitive advantage. The “northern barbarians” who savaged and conquered much of Europe in its early history, the Greeks, the Romans, and eventually all of Europe in the age of Exploration dominated because they had superior transportation....   [tags: Environment Environmental Pollution Preservation]

Travel Writing: Romantics to Newspaper - Travel Writing: Romantics to Newspaper After reading various works from Romantic travel writers such as Gilpin, Wordsworth, Goethe and others, I was interested in how their writings' conventions have changed when a different medium is used. Every Saturday the local newspaper, The Edmonton Journal, has a section that is strictly dedicated to travel destinations and topics pertaining to travel. Appropriately named "Travel," this section describes exotic locations for tourist and travelers. Its articles contrast the Romantics' description of the environment by having less emphasis on the picturesque and sublime, more focus on historical background, and greater detail in the lives of people living there....   [tags: Analysis Literature Traveling Essays Papers]

Web Design for Travel Sites - Introduction The first thing that comes to mind on hearing "a compelling website" is "a beautifully designed website with hues of colours and images" a piece of art. That is exactly the first thing that came to my mind when I sat down to design the website. A couple of weeks later I was probably more elated than Leonardo Da Vinci would have been after completing his master piece. The website was adjudged 4th in the Asia Pacific region (Region 10) IEEE Web Design Contest 2003 in the first time entrants’ category… that isn’t as bad as it sounds… Almost half a decade later the website is absolutely the same… not due to my artistic brilliance… but because it just didn’t work out… Lessons learnt… The website discussed above is by no means an e-commerce website but the rules of the game (with regards to creation, development and sustenance) with or with out the commerce tag, remains similar....   [tags: Website Design] 1065 words

Impact of Travel on Culture and the Environment - Impact of Travel on Culture and the Environment Travel and mobility play indispensable roles in our lives as modern Americans. Their largest impacts are seen within cultural realms: airplanes, automobiles, trains, and, to a lesser extent, boats allow fast and easy transportation to virtually all parts of the world.

gullivers travel - I want to outline in this essay some of the ways in which Swift's texts - in particular the shorter prose works and the poetry concerned with the female body - take up and make explicit contradictory philosophical positions. Much time and critical effort has been spent attempting to trace some unifying philosophical thread through the maze created by these and other of Swift's writings, when such a thread may be elusive to the point of vanishing altogether.1 It seems possible that one cause of this critical need to establish consistency in Swift is the influence of Postmodernist thought, which tends to cause a conditioned response to eighteenth century literary works in which the instinctive move is to look for that which totalizes, compartmentalizes, reveals a master narrative or supplies a clearly defined linear teleology....   [tags: essays research papers] 2873 words
