  • Review Of David Kennedy's Over Here: The First World War And American Society

    The League of Nations ended up failing, as well as President Wilson’s health. Shortly after the war ended, it led to the event of “Red Summer”, a time of racial riots across America. In Kennedy’s view, he says that the war quickly brought the United States into world leadership, about to the point where the British had been trying to reach for years. In his words, “The Americans, in short, disproportionately employed their profits from the war years to fuel a spectacular expansion of the home economy, rather than extending still farther their position in the world economy.” (346) I think this book is a great example of describing America’s progression of getting away from being an isolationist type of country and their transition for involvement with the rest of the…

  • Coulomb's Theory Of Friction

    very complex to model. It has a significant effect on the amount of power required for removing a given volume of metal, surface quality of the finished product, and the extent of tool wear. However, many studies assume no friction in the metal cutting process due to lack of experimental techniques to directly measure the coefficient of friction. Sticking and sliding regions are the two contact regions along the tool-chip interface. A critical friction stress τ_c and coefficient of friction µ…

  • Characteristics Of Conventional Style Deadlift

    In the conventional lift a more erect and upright back alignment is required. If done correctly, the conventional style deadlift builds the muscles of the backside, including spinal erectors, hamstrings and glutes. This causes lifters to struggle to get the weights off the floor, but makes lockout easy. One thing to be cautious of when conducting a conventional style deadlift is shear force from hyper extending the lower back. (Ez) According to a study of two male regional powerlifting…

  • Newton´s Theory Of Laws: Newton's Laws Of Motion

    say the least, “Motion is the actuality of what potentially is.” (Kosman, 1969, p. 40) Although Aristotle thought long and hard specifically about planetary motion, he never answered the question of whether celestial bodies moved, and if so, by what force. Abu ‘Ali Ibn Sina, a Muslim scholar in 1000 AD, confirmed Aristotle’s suspicions by saying, “Nobody begins to move or comes to rest of itself.” (Hecht, 2015, p. 80) Almost seven hundred years later Newton will state this fact in his First Law,…
