...amendment. Opposition from Byrd and like-minded conservatives couldn't stop the amendment. To the suprise of many, the states ratified the amendment in relatively short order, and in February 1913 it became the Sixteenth Amendment to the Constitution. My opinion on paying an income taxt is somewhat fair I agreed upon it because the government has to help us out someway from our contributions but the problem I have is that I think rich people should pay a higher rate on their income tax than they do now. I mean if they have money to buy yachts estimated over $300,000, and cars like a Bugatti that’s worh more than a million dollars. I believe they can pay more taxes. The rich should be taxed more than the poor because someone who works their butt off and get's about $2100 every week should definitely not be qualified to pay the same as someone who earns over $50,000 every two weeks....

It is believed that both had different temperaments and a different take on how to conduct business. While Mr. Damani was a cautious trader and did not believe in building yarn inventories, Dhirubhai was a known risk taker and he considered that building inventories, anticipating a price rise, and making profits.

In hindsight, you can call it strategy.” So, no great pressure from parents to go back and bring in the bucks. But it was important to do something. Something respectable. Vinayak had always enjoyed writing. He'd been part of the Stephen's magazine and also editor of the IIMA mag ‘Synergy’. So he thought why not combine the business degree with journalism? There was an offer from C R Irani, to start the business section of Statesman in Calcutta. And an offer from Ashok Advani, to become the Bombay correspondent for the recently set up Business India. But Mrs Chatterjee was more keen that Vinayak go back to IIMA and complete his PhD. She said, “You are 21, you can come out as a PhD at 23-24. So there is no hurry to take up a job.” Vinayak did just that. He went back and joined the fellow program (FPM) at IIMA. “I remember putting my steel trunk and hold-all on the AhmedabadHowrah Express, the 48 hour journey, again back in dorm 17, got my room. I chose the business policy area and started library work.” Then something interesting happened. Professor VL Mote called Vinayak to his house.

Prof Mote introduced Raunaq, saying he has a company called Apollo Tyres which is badly in debt because the......

The World, My Butt, and Other Big Round Things

...Within the book The Earth, My Butt, and Other Big Round Things, I felt as I was sitting with Virginia listening to her tell me this story in which I became enraged with anger, sadness, and also proud of her. A teenager with self-confidence issues is not out of the ordinary, but parents that contribute to it is absurd and depressing. The perfect family in which Virginia feels like she is not a part of, huge body issues, feeling alone at school and then her world is flipped upside down by her brother’s date rape really got to me in many ways. The view that Virginia portrays of her family is less than perfect which is the complete opposite of what the family believes they are. I was absolutely annoyed with the family life her Mom pretends they have. Byron puts himself above her, and chooses to treat her as he does not care for her. With her Mom being a psychologist, I cannot understand why she always seems to put her other kids in a separate category than Virginia is in. From this, I actually have caught myself making sure that I treat all of my kids fairly. In my own life, I was the youngest and never really had any issues with my parents favoring my brothers over me but I have questioned myself with my own kids. I have always done my best at trying to make everything equal for them. Having kids of my own, I have seen an array of issues with all of them. I am completely supportive of their choices in clothing and whatever their size. Virginia’s parents and......

The Marriage of Mr. and Mrs. Bennet

...The marriage of Mr. and Mrs. Bennet The definition of a good marriage is the perception of the judge. When considering who is to blame for the Bennet's marriage, it must be said that it depends on which perspective is being considered. Jane Austen's portrayal of Mr. and Mrs. Bennet's union leads us to believe this was not a match made in Heaven. However, if the marriage is looked at from different perspectives such as; Mr. Bennet’s, Mrs. Bennet’s, circumstance, or society’s, they provide opposing views of happiness and who is to blame in the absence of joy. After all are considered, is the marriage that bad? A person’s reasons to get married are essential in determining whether or not they can be happy. Society dictated that the Bennet's marriage was contractually imperative for both of them. Mrs. Bennet wanted to be secure and accepted a proposal that she thought would be acceptable. Mr. Bennet wanted a wife to take care of his needs and give him children, preferably a son. Both were tolerable to the other in the beginning and entered into the marriage with freewill. Early in the novel we learn the Bennet's marriage is portrayed as ill-fitted. They appear to be two opposites in humor, character, tact and priorities. In Chapter 1 we read: Mr. Bennet was so odd a mixture of quick parts, sarcastic humour, reserve, and caprice, that the experience of three-and-twenty years had been insufficient to make his wife understand his character. Her......

My name is Bryan Kelly, and I am going to give you an idea of how interpersonal communication is going to affect your lives, and the skills/knowledge you will need in order to find yourselves together and still happy 50 years down the road.

Mrs Pinchwife

...are introduced to the characters Alithea; pinchwife's sister, and Mrs Pinchwife; pinchwife's wife. In the last scene that Pinchwife appeared in (act 1 scene 1) the audience have learned that he is a jealous person so they immediately expect this to become all the more apparent in this scene. In historical context, back in the 1600's being made a cuckold was every husbands biggest fear, and in the character of Pinchwife this is highlighted. Also in the theatre of the 1600's there would have been a back row where you would sit if you didn't want to be seen, Pinchwife make he and his wife sit here on purpose because he doesn't want any of the young fop of the city to see his beautiful wife; he's an overprotective and jealous man. During this scene Mrs Pinchwife asks her husband to take her to the theatre so she can see the sights of the city because she has never seen them before (she's a country wife), to which Pinchwife reacts very negatively as his sister has filled his wife's head with ideals and dreams of city life; exactly what he wanted to keep Mrs Pinchwife away from. My interpretation of the character of Mrs Pinchwife is that she's a very naive person who has missed out on an exciting early life due to her husbands jealousy, but I could see her easily becoming manipulated by the likes of Horner because of how unexposed she has been to city life, she's too innocent and vulnerable. The character of Mrs Pinchwife in this scene would be a challenge to play due to her......

...Six Reading Myths ©Academic Skills Center, Dartmouth College 2001 MYTH 1: I HAVE TO READ EVERY WORD Many of the words used in writing grammatically correct sentences actually convey no meaning. If, in reading, you exert as much effort in conceptualizing these meaningless words as you do important ones, you limit not only your reading speed but your comprehension as well. MYTH 2: READING ONCE IS ENOUGH Skim once as rapidly as possible to determine the main idea and to identify those parts that need careful reading. Reread more carefully to plug the gaps in your knowledge. Many college students fell that something must be wrong with their brain power if they must read a textbook chapter more than once. To be sure, there are students for whom one exposure to an idea in a basic course is enough, but they either have read extensively or have an excellent background or a high degree of interest in the subject. For most students in most subjects, reading once is not enough. However, this is not to imply that an unthinking Pavlovian-like rereading is necessary to understand and retain materials. Many students automatically regress or reread doggedly with a self-punishing attitude. ("I didn't get a thing out of that paragraph the first time, so if I punish myself by rereading it maybe I will this time.") This is the hardest way to do it. Good reading is selective reading. It involves selecting those sections that are relevant to your purpose in......

Once that was done, I proceeded to answer question one, which stated: Determine which edge (rising or falling) of the input A corresponds to an edge (rising or falling) of the Output. I said: The Rising edge of input A matches up with rising edge of output. For question 2, I was to measure any time delay between the two edges. I also was to answer the question of whether or not there should be any delay. Here is what I said: The delay is 20 ns. There should be a bit of delay because it takes time for the chip to recognize a change from input/output.

Mr. Rogers

For those new to him, the best first meeting I can offer to you is through his words, captured by about embracing everyone as his neighbor: (Click for Slide, Read off Paper) “We live in a world in which we need to share responsibility. It’s easy to say It’s not my child, not my community, not my world, not my problem. Then there are those who see the need and respond. I call these people my heroes.” (Click for Slide, Don’t read it) According to, It was Fred Rogers’ grandfather, Fred Brooks McFeely, who first said, “You’ve made this day a special day by just you being you, Freddy, and I like you just the way you are.” (Click for Slide- picture of him as a child) Born in 1928 and growing up a chubby, shy, and lonely boy in Latrobe, Pennsylvania, young Fred cherished his acceptance from his grandfather, who helped give him confidence by allowing him to grow. An only child until the age of 11, Fred often expressed himself through his fingers- by making up stories with hand puppets and pounding out emotions on the piano. (Click for Slide- picture of him in college age) As a music major in his final year of college preparing to go into the ministry, he returned home for Easter vacation and encountered his first television set.

Mr Brooks

...“Mr. Brooks” I chose to do my term paper on the film “Mr. Brooks.” The Plot of the Film consists of the main character; Earl Brooks who is played by Kevin Costner, owner of a successful box business, who is married to a devoted wife, which they have a loving daughter together and love unconditionally. But Mr. Brooks has a terrible secret that he has been able to hide from everyone. That terrible secret happens to be that he is a psychopathic serial killer who is known in media as the “Thumbprint Killer.” Being a wealthy, successful businessman recently honored by the Portland, Oregon, Chamber of Commerce as "Man of the Year" as well as a philanthropist no one has ever suspected him. Being unable to control his horrific addiction, Brooks gives in to his sadistic, all too real alter ego “Marshall” played by William Hurt. A pesky, voyeuristic witness “Mr. Smith,” played by Dane Cook catches him in the act of his latest crime. The rush that Mr. Smith felt after seeing Mr. Brooks brutally kill a couple he used to watch and take pictures of while engaging in sexual activities has set him on a path of destruction and he is taking all the wrong steps to get there. Then there’s the detective, “Tracy Atwood,” played by Demi Moore who has been on the case for quite some time without Mr. Brooks knowledge of it adds a few twists and turns to an already terrifying game of cat and mouse. The way the script has been written, is a “moral” one. You have a man, “Mr. Brooks” who is......
