    And I don’t mean that in no nice way” (West, 2004) The way in which he intends the meaning of the n-word is not in the reclaimed “nice way” but instead in the derogatory way that the term is generally used in society. What this criticism can be seen as questioning is to what extent should distortion of reality be allowable in a generated system, is it allowable for me to make these generalisations and infer my conclusions? It is generally accepted that some level of distortion is allowable for a model, take for example the smooth plane of Newtonian physics, however these distortions should be justified in order for the model to be taken seriously. Laymon (1991) suggests that the correct way to think about idealisations is as ideal limits and doing this allows us to say that our models, though containing counterfactuals can tell us about the actual world. In the case of Newtonian mechanics a completely smooth plane is clearly the limit of smooth planes and hence Newtonian physics can tell us something about physics on the never-completely-smooth surfaces of the real world. Laymon asserts that idealisations, where it can be shown that real world examples approach the condition of the model, should be seen as being able to tell us about the system which the model is describing. That is the extreme refinements assumed can be begun to be approached in the real world. Though this doesn’t explicitly justify the belief in the model as such attempts at approach have not taken place it…

    finds explanatory factors of an event. A daily example would be to forecast the future economic growth of our country by selecting numbers of independent variables, such as oil price (x) that can contribute to economic growth (dependent variable y). McDonald uses Simple Moving Average (SMA) or Weighted Moving Average (WMA) to estimate the demand for its hamburger in the next hour. While both methods remove random variations in demand, WMA assigns more weight to recent data to make the forecast…

    “Do you need a help with your backpack” the stewardess asked me in British accent. “Pardon”, I said “I didn’t hear you well”. She repeated, but I still didn’t understand what she was trying to say. I started to panic. “If I cannot understand British English, which I learned in the university for 1 year, how I will understand American English”. “How I am going to study in University in America if I don’t understand simple things the stewardess was trying to say, maybe I should get out of the…

    left for me. I drank the water like I had not drank anything in years and stood up my leg did not hurt at all. I wandered outside. Whoever had helped me had gotten quite a bit of the plane crash. They had at least found five suitcases and had found a bunch of the onboard soda. He saw the pointed shrapnel that he had used on the board it looked like a tip of the spear. He picked it up and saw an opportunity a part of the plane made of reinforced black carbon steel looked like a perfect spear…

He rocked back on his heels and stood, striking snow from his trousers and striding off a short way. “Hardly. Now that you’re awake, you can help me scavenge…

    Out of nowhere, the city police force ordered everyone to step aside. Using a red megaphone, the officer publicized, “All mile run contestants, please walk towards the entrance. Eagerly, I kept my cool and sauntered down the aisle. We were admitted into the arena, and were forced into a bare conference room. We sat in the vinyl padded seats, and the officer started to talk more at us than to us. The summation of his 20 minute lecture was that there would be an alternative tryout with the top ten…

    The sound of a snarl below them immediately brought their attention back to the ground. Ryker had stopped running and was glaring up at them with his arms crossed. In front of them was yet another city, San Francisco if Leo wasn't mistaken. He blinked in surprise as he realized the distance that they had traveled in only about sixty hours. Then he shifted in his seat and the groan of his legs told him that he could, in fact, definitely believe that they had been flying for so long. Thank…

    I would sit in my room and draw all the places I told myself I would visit and dream about what it would be like when I got there. I had all of my trips planned out from the second I got off the plane to the moment I left for my next destination. You could say I was obsessed, I still am, but in all of the hustle and bustle of mapping out my perfect journey, I figured out that traveling the world isn’t the key to becoming a better person and infinite happiness, nor is it an escape from all of…
