After the amount of time, energy, and thought that went in to my attempt to create “natural” writing mechanics and tools the frustration isn’t worth what seems to be a small victory. In the end the process of trying to think of something natural to create is unnatural.
Diameter 4. Temperature Diameter would prove hard to achieve a wide range of results. It would be very difficult to get a large variety of diameters for the same material of wire. This would cause problems as the only two solutions are to double up wires or to use different materials. Doubling up wires would make the experiment less reliable and have less accurate results as it would be hard to produce a consistent procedure for it.
I did try to carve the melon with a sharp stick, but it was a frustrating and painstaking process that I quickly abandoned in favor of the tried and true knife. Without this tool, I do not believe that my writing sample would have looked as “normal” as it did, and it probably would have been very difficult to read.
Altogether, the Locavorism movement is orchestrated by naive individuals that possess benign intentions, but its lack of nutritional benefit, increased carbon footprint and decreased quality and safety cause the movement to be no more than the idealistic hallucinations of a madman. There are many misconceptions that accompany the idea of Locavorism, and one of the most prominent is the assertion that locally grown food is more nutritious than food that has been transported from areas that are not within a 100-mile radius. Jennifer Maiser states that “This freshness not only affects the taste of your food, but the nutritional value which declines with time) (Source A). Although there is strong evidence showing that, after being picked, food slowly begins to lose its nutritional value, people tested in the United States have not shown to be lacking the nutrients that produce provides (Source B). This makes the argument that Americans need larger amounts of the nutrients found in produce redundant, because any surplus of those substances will be disposed of by the process of urination.
Frozen fruit, although cheaper, probably wouldn’t have worked well. Blueberries, as expensive as they were, seemed to be the best solution. I mashed the blueberries into a little dish, and then began to write. But then I realized I had nothing to write on. Making paper would have been hard.
Although the first two theories would have pot... ... middle of paper ... ...to their age and brittleness, it is difficult to gain permission to explore them, and while historians wait, more evidence is lost as it crumbles away. The majority of the mystery involving how the pyramids were built is derived from the lack of internal evidence that archeologists can access. As of today, the 3 most commonly used theories have been the external ramp theory, the modified external ramp theory and most recently, the internal ramp theory. Although the chances of the external and modified ramp theories being correct are slim, the evidence supporting their existence might have worn away by now, especially if the material that was used to build the ramps was weaker than that of the pyramids. This thought indirectly challenges the internal ramp theory as well because it also mentions the use of external ramps in building the bottom half of the monument.
They believe their zombie interpretation is more relatable than Haraway’s cyborg interpretation. The authors are trying to make their interpretation more valid by invalidating another interpretation. This makes the piece hard to agree with, for an interpretation is relative to each person, and tearing apart another interpretation is an unproductive way to persuade readers to agree with you and your ideas. Another reason the article is difficult to agree with, is the fact that it is very difficult to understand. With the piece being as persuasive as it is, the authors did not take the time to ensure the writing would be easy to understand for all.
Life Before the Pharaohs For more than half of the twentieth century, much like the pyramids, the predynastic Egypt was a mystery to archeologists. The little discoveries that had been made from the period preceding the pharaohs were not enough to either prove or disprove the various theories circulating at the time. One of the first artifacts dated at the time of the unification to be unearthed was Narmer's palette, discovered by the English archeologist James Edward Quibell at the end of the nineteenth century. The discovery was made at Hierakonpolis, about four hundred and fifty miles outside of Cairo. The object depicted the unification of the Lower and Upper Egypt, the event being attributed to Narmer; he also found a macehead that carried the insignia of Scorpion, a king which was believed to have ruled Upper Egypt just before the unification.
The Future of Literature in the Age of Technology Bolstered by the recent advancements in technology, our society has gradually departed from the culture of the printed word to a computer culture structured by the digital word. Everyday the superior performance of computers appears to render printed literature more obsolete - e-mail and chat rooms have nearly eliminated traditional written letters, the Internet has all but replaced the need for libraries and paper catalogues and, soon, hypertext will completely overtake the realm of the printed novel. Computers have saturated our literary environment to such a degree that it is difficult to imagine a time when print was our most prized communication technology. To make an accurate hypothesis about the computer culture, and how it will affect the way we study and think about literature in the future, it is necessary to examine the development of past societies when faced with equally sweeping changes in literary technology. The ancient Greeks were one of the first peoples to experience a pivotal technological revolution.
Making New Writing This assignment is for my ‘Writing, Style, and Technology’ class at University. The focus of the class is supposed to be on computers, Internet, etc. But for our first major project, the goal was to create a new type of writing technology. The catch was that we couldn't use common writing tools like paper or pencils. We had to use ‘natural’ items and things we could find around the house like food, paper clips, dirt, etc.
