  1. ringtones. If a cell phone is fairly new it almost undoubtedly is capable of loading any ringtones and probably already has a good supply of notes in its memory already.

    What the ringtone program needs to do is just tell the microprocessor to use a selected speed, selected notes and in a selected order to make the ringtone you have chosen. These notes can be varied so much when using these features that you have a vast number of ringtone options for your phone. Your cell phone just needs that program loaded to it to play your favorite ringtone. You have to know how to do that, although it's not difficult.

  2. Uses of Encryption

    Only they can they only can decide who can access their personal files. What is an important difference between public-key cryptography and secret-key cryptography? The main difference between public-key cryptography and secret-key cryptography is the fact that in public-key cryptography there is no need for secure transmission of keys as it is the case in secret-key cryptography. The beauty of public-key cryptography is that knowing the public-key (which is used to encrypt the message - plaintext) provides no help whatsoever to find the private key (which used to decrypt the message - ciphertext).

  6. An Example of a Poor Quality World Lit Essay

    Social isolation is a key theme in both of these books. Meursault is, on a psychological level, isolated and detached from society which is made evident from the first line of the book by his lack of emotion when discussing his mother's death. Although we are not initially informed of Gregor's life before his metamorphosis and subsequent confinement, we slowly uncover details that reveal that he fits into the system and works hard as an average salesman only to support his family and make his sister happy while he is, on a social level, isolated from the world outside his household.

    * In my opinion, the lack of a rhyme scheme represents how unpredictable life is. * Tone: mournful, "rain blackened the horizon"; leading into wistful, "I would have done the same, proudly laying new stock into my father's orchard" and finally hopeful towards the end, "when our family is no more"... "I want you to stand among strangers". This tone helps the reader to empathize with the speaker as they go through the same emotions as him. * Mention of the "birth cord" makes the reader realize how young the man's son was.

  8. Community Health

    [Health is the extent to which an individual or group is able] to realise aspirations, to satisfy needs and to change or cope with the environment. Health is, therefore, seen as a resource of everyday life, not the object of living. Health is a positive concept emphasising social and personal resources, as well as physical capacities. (WHO, 1986) The World Health Organisation defined health as a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity (WHO, 1946).

  10. The History & Development of Reflexology

    The Jewish tradition of washing the feet and anointing them with oil was believed to have significant medicinal purpose, as well as their traditional teachings related to humility and being of service. The Native American Indians also separately developed techniques, which were based on very similar principles. Throughout the 16th Century several books were written on Zone Therapy, the most famous being Dr Adamus and Dr A'tatis, and another a little later by Dr Ball in Leipzig. In 1834 Heinrik Link, the man who lead the way for Swedish massage in modern society, noticed that pains in particular organs were

  11. Exfoliation for NVQ level 2 beauty

    These chemical exfoliants work by 'unglue-ing' the dead cells on the surface of the skin, breaking down the bonds of intracellular glue (made up of keratin and calcium) that are holding them in place. Microdermabrasion is on the whole very similar to mechanical exfoliation, but involves the use of a tool to propel tiny rough grains or crystals at high speeds at the surface of the skin. The basic principal of microdermabrasion is that by removing or breaking up the stratum corneum, the body will interpret this as a minor injury and rushes to create new healthy cells.

  14. Censorship of Video Games

    Before then, no rating system existed, until in 1994 the Entertainment Software Review Board (ESRB) was founded. Its focus was to review and assign content ratings to games. For all of their ratings, only the two highest, Mature and Adults Only, had restrictions; you had to be 17 or older to buy an M game by yourself and 18 or older to purchase an Adults Only game. I believe that this was a good idea, because the ESRB's two-part system, the rating as well as descriptors that explained what content was in the game, used a system where games that they thought may be unsuitable for children would have to be bought by their parents.

  15. Online Games and Addiction

    Many people that are actively involved in these games suffer from low self-esteem or poor self-image problems. For some, it would be a relief to be able to show others a better image of how they see themselves, for example, an avatar. With an avatar, players can create their own character, or base the appearance after themselves.1 Players with low self-esteem can hide behind these representations of themselves and talk to others more easily than they could face-to-face. The only way for two players to get to know one another when online is through instant online communication, or through digital voice communication, making it significantly easier for players with poor self-image to make friends and join social networks.

    Unlike Catholicism Buddhism does not enforce that one must attend temple, or church for Catholics, but that one should, in order to have guidance in attaining nirvana or living a proper lifestyle.

  17. Are Science and Religion Compatible?

    However a religious view of the creation of the universe is not based on evidence which has been collected from experimentation and observation, but on the authority of scriptures such as the bible, which have to be accepted by faith. It is often unclear what the relationship between science and religion is. Does science support or conflict with religious beliefs or is there a relationship where science and religion are consistent and don't support or conflict with one another but work side by side?

    Even from the beginning, when Nick first laid eyes upon Gatsby, he was "[stretching] out his arms toward the dark water in a curious way...[and] was trembling. I...distinguished nothing except a single green light, minute and faraway..." (Pg. 21-22). Before Daisy married Tom, she and Gatsby were deeply in love; however, as Gatsby was a lieutenant, he was ordered to leave for war. Also, Gatsby wasn't able to financially support her. Therefore, Daisy chose to marry Tom, a ridiculously wealthy man.

  19. How do the pigs on animal farm abuse language?

    For example, Squealer takes the sheep away to teach them a new chant, "Four legs good two legs better." He bestows a continuous incantation to affix this into the animal's minds, ultimately brainwashing them. When the animals see the pigs walking on two legs, the animals do not find it strange as the continuous chanting of the sheep has been brainwashed into the animal's minds. Due to the increasing disturbance that the pigs were sleeping on beds in Mr. Jones' farmhouse when Clover asks Muriel to read out the Fourth Commandment it read, "No animal shall sleep in a bed with sheets."

  20. University Entrance Essay

    Pirates, like me, require defining traits that shape them as a whole. The first is adventure. Jean Lafitte's perils through the waterways of New Orleans were what allowed Jackson's army to surprise the British. Similarly, my life follows the same path of adventure, without the swashbuckling of course. Spending three years of my life living on a boat sailing throughout the South Pacific islands exposed me to remote and diverse cultures at an early age. This experience opened my mind to realize how much we can potentially give to developing countries. This played a role in my inspiration to travel to the remote town of Mata Palo, Costa Rica last summer to work on a turtle conservation project for two weeks.

    The development of these valuable skills as well as others and the mental enrichment are important aspects of the program. They augment the intrinsic pleasure, which in itself is worth it, to make excellent CAS into an even more worthwhile experience. Taking part in the critically appraised Bard on the Beach Shakespeare Festival during the summer between my two years at IB is another example of excellent CAS helping me to try new experiences. I learned a great deal about running a production and all the different aspects that are involved.

    I began right away at Sir Winston Churchill Secondary School with my new goal of 'Participaction.' My first major Creative endeavour was voluntarily aiding the oft-neglected Theatre department of our school. I teamed up with my fellow student and eager participant Edward Ou to volunteer our precious time and effort into the bettering of the many productions that Theatre Churchill produces every single year. I was delegated the job of organising and melding the small group of willing volunteer stage-crew members into a invincible strike force of able-bodied workers, ready to jump at my command and perform tasks with split-second precision.

  23. Suspended Particulate Matter: a Primary Air Pollutant

    are referred to as fine particles and are believed to pose the greatest health risks. Because of their small size (approximately 1/30th the average width of a human hair), fine particles can lodge deeply into the lungs. Sources of particulate matter can either be natural or generated by human activities. The biggest natural sources are dust, volcanoes, and forest fires. Sea spray is also a large source of particles though most of these fall back to the ocean close to where they were emitted. The biggest human sources of particles are combustion sources, mainly the burning of fuels in internal combustion engines in cars and power plants, the wind blown from dust from construction sites and other land areas where the water or vegetation has been removed.

    Because of parallax a normal camerarange-finder camera would not be able to take a picture of a subject close in, even though this has changed with most digital cameras because of the LCD screen, but the camera would have to have a certain lens to capture that particular image, and making the SLR more favorable, because of it's ability to change lenses, and to have a direct view of an object. The basics in all digital cameras are a shutter, an aperture, the sensor CCD/CMOS, and the lens.

    Revelle is one of the first scientists to measure carbon dioxide concentrations in the atmosphere. He conducted many experiments testing the earth's carbon dioxide concentrations and then compared them to the earth's temperature to see any similarities. After a few years of research, Revelle realized an increase in carbon dioxide emissions. Gore was amazed by the type of research and the amount of difference in the carbon dioxide from year to year. This amazement led to the Gore's interest in global warming and led to him presenting the following information in the movie.
