These exercises come in many forms, from resistance to body weight or from more technical based Olympic style weightlifting exercises, such as the clean and jerk, with the aim being to benefit the athlete with transferable capabilities that improve the sport specific skill (Hori et al., 2008; Behm, 1985).

A lose/win paradigm is an interaction where Brant loses in his favor while the other person gets their way and wins. Whether he is interacting with me, his teachers, his friends or even his own sister, a lot of the time he…

    these problems affect their daily life and affect how people react near him. In Hemingway’s A Clean, Well-Lighted Place a dark loneliness fills the void of man’s solitary existence, while in O’Brien’s 2006 film Isolation, physical remoteness allows for the entrance of a sinister shadowy evil, each demonstrating, in its own way, nature’s need to fill a vacuum. The inner struggles that the old man had gone through had been felt by his presence in the cafe. The young waiter does not know why the…

    Ernest Hemingway is one of the most revered and studied American authors, famous the world over for his extensive bibliography of short stories and novels. However, Hemingway was a deeply troubled man, and many of his works are monuments to his struggles with depression. “A Clean, Well-Lighted Place” is an ideal example of Hemingway’s nihilistic view of the world: it appears to be a mirror into his very soul. The theme of “A Clean, Well-Lighted Place” is decidedly nihilistic: life, human ideas…

    Clean coal is a technology of greatly disputed value with some believing it is the way of the future while others believe it merely applies a band-aid to a gunshot wound. Clean coal technology is not the most economically or environmentally practical method of energy production causing me to advocate for the increased use of alternative technologies. Any technology that reduces the environmental impact of burning coal falls under the clean coal technologies umbrella (Halber, 2008, para. 1). The…

    Congress has several attempts to regulate non-point source pollution. However, they are all viewed as a failure. From my point of view, it is a product of their largely non-regulatory approach and is due to a lack of technical information concerning what control measures actually work. Section 208 of the Clean Water Act “requires states to develop area-wide waste treatment management plans” and be submitted to EPA in return of federal financial assistance. It is considered ineffective because…
