    number "3" would be recorded in the data table. Take photographs for your display board, if desired. Remove the prepared tray and the broken test house.

Repeat "Testing Your Shake Houses" steps 1-4 for two additional trials per soil type so that all 12 houses are tested. V. Results First was the bedrock, when I shook it, it stayed completely intact because it is an underground soil that has been constructing itself for millions of years that is made of rock. Next when I shook the gravel it shook a lot until it fell because gravel is little fragments of rocks and when it is in the ground usually it is pretty loose. Then I shook the alluvium which rocked from side to side and toppled over because it is loose and crumbly and contains some water but liquefaction then takes place. Liquefaction is when a solid or a gas becomes a liquid in an earthquake. Lastly when I shook the sand it moved from side to side and fell over due to liquefaction. Number of fallen walls Bedrock Gravel Alluvium Sand Trial 1 0 2 3 4 Trial 2 0 1 1 0 Sum of trials 0 3 4 4 Average of trials 0 1.5 2 1 VI.

    • 4 Pages

    In his book, All Shook Up, Altschuler traces the development of rock ‘n’ roll between 1945 and 1955 carefully noting that it is a “social construction not a musical conception” (23).

The book does this by focusing on these areas by looking at race, sexuality, and generational differences. In Altschuler argument about race, he complicates the traditional view that white artist’s covers…

    My Lagoon Shook Analysis

    • 7 Pages

    In this essay, I argue why Beauvoir’s introduction to the novel The Second Sex and Baldwin’s letter, “My Dungeon Shook,” start in a similar vein. Beauvoir and Baldwin both experience antagonism within themselves, in dealing with the study of women (Beauvoir) and the study of black men (Baldwin) because ‘woman’ and ‘black man’ are conceptualisms that have been authored by white men, in relation to white men, interpellated upon women and black men by white men for ages. These similar introductions…

    In the book All Shook Up: How Rock ‘n’ Roll Changed America, by Glenn Altschuler, touches on the development of rock ‘n’ roll between 1945 and 1955 cautiously observing that it is a “social construction not a musical conception (Page 27).” This definition of rock ‘n’ roll gives him space to focus on arguable topics much as exploration, and, in some cases, combining of differing styles, cultures, and social values.
