    As surprising as it may seem, one of the most common household items, cardboard, can be used to construct a boat. Building a cardboard boat has become a fun activity that anyone can take part in. Towns and schools hold annual cardboard boat regattas, judging the entrants on speed, design, and creativity. In New Richmond, Ohio there is even a cardboard boat museum! These special boats are more than just a box thrown into water; they are designed using elements of engineering and physics to make

    which we receive everyday. For personal use, there’s the diary and the note pads to remind us the things we need to remember. There are many examples that I can give for instance, paper plates, paper bags, cardboard boxes, etc… Anyhow, the point that I am deriving at is that paper and cardboard boxes are all made from trees. Millions of trees are being destroyed every year to produce paper. Not only for paper, but for housing projects as well. New programs are being set up to plant trees in replace

    Poverty, an Injustice in America How many times have you been on your way home, or somewhere around downtown, and at a stoplight you see someone sitting at the intersection with a cardboard sign that reads something along the lines of, “Homeless and hungry”? If you have ever been in a car that passes through a large city in the U.S., then like most others you probably have. What have these people done to be in a situation like this? What can you do to help? Are they really homeless? These are commonly

    together, changes in the color occurred, displaying points with greater stress. Method 4: Polarization by reflection from a non-metallic surface was used in this method in order to help distinguish the plane of incidence, and Brewster's angle. A cardboard disk with a picture on it and a polarizer were placed in the holder, with a piece of black plastic (n=1.491) in between them. Brewster's angle was determined from tan = n, and =56. We then looked through the polarizer at this angle and were

    The Beggar and the Bitch The blocks of concrete sidewalk in between two rusty, red brick buildings prickle my skin. I lay out my piece of brown corrugated cardboard and am comforted by its smoothness. It provides insulation on a breezy summer night. I curl up, cramped, in the fetal position; my limbs grow limp as my eyelids weigh down over two chocolate eyes. I can feel my fuzzy black dreadlocks falling down the nape of my neck and into the collar of my thin cotton t-shirt. I pull my white tube

He later sets fire to the man’s clothe, Erika’s gloves and the bloodied cardboard. The young men both manage to carry the adult’s body, taking it to the lake nearby; they move in silence, nothing but the sound of Erika’s lively chatter in the background. They eradicate the body deep within the lake. Vernon leaves and returns later

    Economic Trade-off Analysis of Cracker Jack When I was little, Cracker Jack came in cardboard boxes, and the prize inside was often pretty cool: a whistle or a ring, or some similar gadget. This was also in the days when Oscar Mayer gave away tiny hot-dog-shaped whistles as promotional items. In those days, whistles were pretty popular. Slide whistles were a very common favor at birthday parties. I remember an older cousin came back from the army once, and he had a really cool whistle

    Human beings are advised not to judge books by their covers, rather that they should look further than the obvious and try to apprehend the implied meaning. The world has peered past Catcher in the Rye's cover, cracked its pure, uniform shell of cardboard and discovered the novel of a decade, a story that has now made the name "Holden Caulfield" synonymous with "cynical adolescent." Within the novel, however, there are more "books" into which we can read a bit more deeply - the characters. It seems

    color of an Olympic gold metal gone unpolished for aeons. But what I saw, past the father's cardboard sign, was a gut wrenching sight of three children peering out of the auto's open window. Although these children had uncombed hair, dirty faces and runny noses, they bore mischievous grins like any other deserving child in America. I didn't even read the sign. It didn't matter. I'd read many cardboard signs in downtown Seattle enough to know the usual request. I turned on my heel, as if on auto

    the pizza boxes remained in the dirt, alone and forgotten. The rains came and softened up the cardboard, the stack sagged in the middle, and was again stiffened by the sun. Something amazing began to happen. It was only after trying to throw out these old boxes in a fit of neatness, that I discovered the miracle that had taken place. I found when I pulled back the first layer, not just soggy cardboard, but a miniature ecosystem teeming with life. A herd of slugs meandered over the plain that read
