Film Industry: Office Space and Visioneers

- In the words of my father, the business owner, “being stuck in a schedule is similar to being trapped in a labyrinth from hell.” Depending on a specific person, a scheduled routine may be appreciated, however it is not to all people. People rely on schedules to fulfill their priorities for the day, like actors following a script. Society presents the issue of becoming a puppet to a scheduled routine in an individual’s life. This topic raises great controversy towards the irony of the schedule controlling people, rather than the people controlling the schedule....   [tags: work, negative effects, business owner]

- My Last Duchess and Blank Space are two great pieces of literature. Blank Space was written by a popular singer named Taylor Swift, and My Last Duchess was written by Robert Browning. Someone who reads both of these works of literature might think that they are solely about two people who are jealous of their partners.

A History of Curvature and Applications of Hyperbolic Space

- While the study of curvature is an ancient one, the geometry of curved surfaces is a topic that has been slowly developed over centuries. The Ancient Greeks certainly considered the curvature of a circle and a line distinct, noting that lines do not bend, while circles do. Aristotle expanded on this concept explaining that there were three kinds of loci: straight, circular, and mixed (Coolidge)Then in the third century B.C.

Perception Of Silence During The Classroom Space

- Perception of Silence Personally this course has been powerful for me since it made me realize the complexity of labeling one’s self and attempting to understand others around you. This classroom space was both comforting and scary at the same time. I felt threatened and fearful when I look around and realize there is one or two people that I can personally relate to.
