    Speed reading is traditionally looked upon highly and is seen as a great skill in the academic and professional community. There is a relationship between reading speed and retention when one holds the assumption that reading faster is better (McLaughlin, 1969; Smith, 1975). The capability of reading faster is possible but the quality of retaining the information read is variable (McLaughlin, 1969). The average person reads 200-250 words per minute (WPM) for upper intermediate grades and 300-350 WPM for adults with 70-80% comprehension accuracy (Carver, 1983; Lauer, 2008; Louise & Lauer, 1959; Shore, 1968; Smith, 1975). The question that remains is if a fast reader is, in fact, a “good” reader. Simply put, a good reader should be able…

    of the ramp increased, the speed, velocity, and acceleration also increased. In Run 1, the height of the ramp was highest at 5 textbooks. Evidence: The speed and velocity of the car in this lab are essentially the same because the total distance traveled is equal to the total displacement of the car. In Run 5, the ramp had the lowest height of one textbook. Using the slope of the position versus time graph, the speed of the car from Run 5 to Run 1 was calculated to 0.439 m/s, 0.745 m/s, 0.786…

    The maximum speed for vehicles travelling on Australian highways is currently 110km/h. It is argued that this speed is too slow for a highway and may cause more road accidents and increase the road toll due to the drivers being restricted by the speed limit. When the speed limit is slow, drivers are left dangerously stuck behind and in-between trucks. The drivers are also too frustrated about not going above the low speed limit which can act as a distraction. (Tucker, 2015) Therefore, the…

    he was going 55, the speed limit. “Yes, that's what I clocked you at. But that’s not the speed limit.” That’s when Monroe was informed that all the speed limits in Holland have been reduced to a maximum of 40 mph. Lucky for Monroe, the officer left him with a warning, and he was still able to get to school on time. This has been the story for many drivers across the Holland area. Unsuspecting drivers have taken to the roads without knowledge of the speed limit change only to see flashing…

    Albert Einstein said, “No object can travel faster than the speed of light.” However, will the temperature change the brightness of light? The researcher will perform the test three different times. Each test will take one glow stick from the freezer, one from the refrigerator, one in boiling water, and one from the counter and break the glow stick to make it glow. The researcher will then time the length of time it takes for the glow stick to turn off. At the conclusion of the experiment, the…

    Raising the Speed Limit Some say “speed kills” but is speed really the killer? The killer is the person who is behind the wheel. Much less just because careless drivers are the cause of deaths in motor vehicles, that does not mean society should lower the speed down to an unreasonable point. In Fact we should increase the speed and let the careless drivers deal with the problems they cause and not penalize the rest. Even though driving 55 miles per hour is more fuel efficient,the speed limit…

    The California High Speed Railroad should not be built because of the rising money. The money needed for the project is continuously rising. The amount of money approved by the citizens was $9.95 billion. However, it rose to $13.5 billion. Then, it increased to $48.6 billion. The money kept rising from millions and billions! The “final” cost to build a high-speed rail line between San Francisco and Los Angeles by 2028 is predicted to be to a grand total of about $67.6 billion. It is claimed that…

    The U.S is the known as one of the most technologically advanced countries in the world, yet the U.S has one of the slowest and most expensive internet speeds. Japan, whose internet bandwidth averages 81 Megabytes per second (MBPS) is very cheap at $0.40 per MBPS compared to the pricey and slow internet speeds of the U.S at 15 MBPS for $5.66 per MBPS. That is almost six times slower and 14 times more expensive than Japan. There are many possible solutions ranging from expensive options such as…
