    In the short story, “The Lottery”, Shirley Jackson uses imagery and symbolism to show that evil can be present in the most innocent environment, resulting in society being tainted with dark illusion. Superstitious tradition symbolized an important role to the people in this village. Mr. Summers a man that was in charge of the majority of the events in the town, always spoke about making a new black box but never did. (134) The people of the village would rather keep the same box rather than upsetting tradition with something new.

    not what you were born with. Contrary to the norm belief in talent, deliberate practice is actually a highly structured level of exercise in which there is a specific goal and plan on how to get to the desired level of achievement. It requires effort and time. Many fields require vigorous training for at least several years in order to master. Ericsson’s studies and experiments have only further explained and proved that deliberate practice is the way to success, and that no amount of “talent”…

    The other was at the age of 12, where he discovered his love for geometry. In 1889, the Einstein family became the host to a Polish exchange student, Max Talmud, who was a poor medical student. Every Thursday evening, Talmud came over, and tutored Albert, introducing him to higher levels of math and philosophy. One of the books that Talmud, introduced Albert to was a book where the author imagined riding alongside an electric current traveling on a telegraph wire. Albert pondered what it would…

    Albert Einstein, considered one of the sharpest minds in history, died unfulfilled. All of his life since he was a kid, he had been in awe from the natural phenomena of the world. Taken over by passion, Einstein put his whole focus on science. Even as a brilliant child, teachers thought he would never amount to anything, because of his lack of interest in anything other than sciences and math. Einstein and I share the same hyperfocus towards our passions that blindly leads us away from other…

    Using empirical equations like this is a common trick in science; find a mathematical function that fits what you’ve observed, then use that as a clue to what’s happening behind your observations. Planck had taken this second step, and was looking for a theoretical derivation of what became Planck’s Law. This gave him a more fundamental understanding of the process of radiation. It is ironic, then, that Planck needed to quantise light to get his derivation to work. He had used Boltzmann’s…

    previous theories of electrodynamics such as that of Morley and Miller in 1904; “The decisive step, however, was taken in the paper by Einstein in 1905 in which he established … a change in the very foundations of physics; an unexpected and very radical change that required all the courage of a young and revolutionary genius.” Einstein as a German Jew very quickly became the most recognized and important scientist since Newton, and furthered the development of other fundamental revolutions in…
