March 19,2016 1. a1=13 a2= (a1 + 8) ---> 13+8=21 a3= (a2 + 8) ----> 21+8=29 a4= (a3 + 8) ----> 29+8= 37 so the first 4 terms would be 13, 21 , 29, 37 2. -------------------------------------------------
16*15*14*13*12*11*10*9*8*7*6*5*4*3*2*1 ]
(2*1)(14*13*12*11*10*9*8*7*6*5*4*3*2*1)

I would solve this by getting rid of 14 through 1 on top and bottom leaving

16*15
______
2*1 this would then = 240/2 which simplifies to 120 as your answer. 3. 1^2 + 2^2 + 3^2 + 4^2 + 5^2 which translates into 1+4+9+16+25 which equals 55 and that is the sum of the problem. 4. 33,000 + (9*2500) for the remaining 9 years of the 10 year period will give you the salary over a 10 year period. So 33,000 + 22,500= 55,500 5. I solved this problem by setting up the equation by setting up the equation to multiply itself by 5 after each day. So day 4 would be 125 day 5 would be 625 day 6 would be 3125 day 7 would be 15625 and day 8 which is the answer to this problem would be 78125. 6. The first 12 terms would be 2,6,18,54,162,486,1458,4374,13122,39366,118098,354294. Then you simply add them all together to get 531440.…...

What Is It About Churches That Make so Many Misunderstand Christianity?

...night drinking at their local pub and not home with the family, and have a mouth that would make a truck driver blush. Then Sunday morning they are in the front pew praying for their hangover to go away. Another misconception about the Church and Christianity in a general since would be those “Bible Thumpers”. These would be the people that don’t discuss religion with people they tell you that Gods Word is the truth and aren’t willing to discuss any other view and are sometimes disrespectful to others views. I feel that one of the main things the church family can do is to act more Christian in their personal and social life. We all must remember that we represent God in everything we do down to the smallest action. Not one human is without sin though we should strive to be as close to God as we can. Back in my younger days I went to a certain dancing establishment was I just so happened to run in to three of the leaders from my local church. True I shouldn’t have been there and I am sorry for going there and have not been back there since. But the fact is Church leaders are judged harsher than the average Joe from the congregation. As I was talking about the “Bible Thumper ”once we find god we have this urge to tell everyone and spread the good news. But there is a right way and a wrong way to do this. Yelling and screaming doesn’t do it for a lot of people and telling them how they are going to hell without God! Yes this may be true but goodness find a new way to say......

Gay Marriage Ruins the Current Stellar Institution of Marriage

...point here is the INSTITUION OF MARRIAGE has been in the toilet for quite some time now and the only thing extending the legal right to gay couples will do is boost the economy with fabulously lavish weddings and then the inevitable lining of divorce lawyers’ pockets. Cynical humor is part of the gay culture’s way of dealing with the repression and secret hiding in the closet which is still prevalent. Gays so not want to steal your husbands or sons or raise gay children. Although in some ways society is becoming more accepting, gay children suffer much more from bullying than do straight children. Most gays just want to live a happy live with all the rights (not privileges-driving is a privilege) others have. Gays do not want the bible thumpers to lose at all, but rather just be happy in their ignorant delusions amongst their own peeps. We come from place of pointing out how preposterous the “other side” can be as illustrated at The Huffington Post in “an effort to ‘keep straight couples from getting divorced and hating their children,’ [all should] check out this hilarious video from ‘the coalition of people whose lives are ruined whenever other people are treated equally’” ('The Ultimate Anti-Gay Marriage Ad' , 2013). The religious right (wrong) somehow see it as the end of days. Some groups feel it is their mission to save sinners. Some who are not persecuting the gays say they love gays regardless of their sinning ways. That group should actually be thanking the......

...for animals and or diseases, I also think that mixing the DNA’s to create a new form of life or an improvement is also okay in my eyes if it’s a better version and better improvements then I am for it. It’s kind of weird thou I feel I am kind of double standards because I don’t mind it with crops or animals but when it comes to cloning of a person that I am so against and stem cell I think in my eyes the only life that matters is humans I am really not an animal person so to me that doesn’t matter and crops and plants I mean we as humans need the oxygen and the nutrients in order to survive but when it comes to life as in humans then that I feel like some of the other people with messing with what God has planned. I am not really a bible thumper as some may call but I am somewhat religious not as much as I should be. I just feel that in crops and in animals that there are tons more perks than not I am all for helping the sick, saving money if I were a farmer on pesticides and your crops becoming more mature and bigger when you sell them you will get the repeat business just from that alone.

He had to have made that reservation a week ago.” “Yeah, and what is up with that, anyway?” Sidney wanted to know. “Who makes a reservation at theGull ’n Gulp ?” Sidney, I knew, wasn’t dissing the Gulp. It’s just that no local would ever deign to make a reservation there, unless it was a special occasion, like Mrs. Hogarth’s birthday party. Or a guy who wanted to make the girl he was currently macking with behind her boyfriend’s back jealous. “Maybe he wanted to impress her,” I said, carefully fishing my comb out of the toilet, just as there was a thump on the bathroom door. “I’m in here,” I called to the thumper, who I knew was my brother, Liam, just getting home from the video arcade at Duckpin Lanes, where he’d spent most, if not all, of his nights this summer. No one else in my house was awake, since it was after midnight. “Yeah, but since when are Eric Fluteley and Morgan Castle a couple?” Sidney demanded. “It all seems a little too convenient, if you ask me. She’s running for Quahog Princess, and needs an escort for the evening gown event, and she just HAPPENS to start going out with the best-looking guy in school? I mean, besides Seth and Dave? And then just HAPPENS to show up at the Gull ’n Gulp on a night when we’re both there?” “I’m at the Gulp almost every night, Sid,” I pointed out. “So are you, for that matter. I really......

Hopping Into Action

...the tote, I put the lid back on, securely but breathable. Apparently this guy’s willpower is strong because he continues, without avail, to try to unlodge the lid with all the energy he can muster. It appears sleep may escape me with all the ruckus. I haul the tote out of my room and rehome it in the living room so I can go back to bed and sleep peacefully. I hope at some point in the night the little thumper will settle back down. It’s very clear the almost drowned bunny had a made a full recovery come morning. Any method of escape was being tested. The three of us, dad, sister and myself, contemplate releasing him before or after school. It hadn’t appeared that he had eaten any food and not knowing if it was the new surroundings or a possible injury preventing nutrient consumption, it was a mutual agreement to wait till evening. With the persistence of trying to break out of his “cell” we cleaned and set up one of our actual rabbit cages for a better and safer containment. After the final bell, neither of us dilly-dallied to my truck, anxious to check on “Thumper,” as we dubbed him. Upon arrival home, we went racing to the spot where we left the cage that morning. He was startled to see us, like a normal wild animal, and pressed himself into the corner farthest from us. Our main concern was no longer a reason to keep him confined in a cage, as his food supply had decreased. We had already cleared his release into our neighbor’s dog-free, backyard and wasted......

Jurassic Park

...they called Thumper. Grant sat down on the side of the hill and looked at his watch. He said to Ellie, "We're going to have to do this the old-fashioned way." One of the kids overheard. "Aw, Alan." "Look," Grant said, "I've got a plane to catch. And I want the fossil protected before I go." Once you began to expose a fossil, you had to continue, or risk losing it. Visitors imagined the landscape of the badlands to be unchanging, but in fact it was continuously eroding, literally right before your eyes; all day long you could hear the clatter of pebbles rolling down the crumbling hillside. And there was always the risk of a rainstorm; even a brief shower would wash away a delicate fossil. Thus Grant's partially exposed skeleton was at risk, and it had to be protected until he returned. Fossil protection ordinarily consisted of a tarp over the site, and a trench around the perimeter to control water runoff. The question was how large a trench the velociraptor fossil required. To decide that, they were using computer-assisted sonic tomography, or CAST. This was a new procedure, in which Thumper fired a soft lead slug into the ground, setting up shock waves that were read by the computer and assembled into a kind of X-ray image of the hillside. They had been using it all summer with varying results. Thumper was twenty feet away now, a big silver box on wheels, with an umbrella on top. It looked like an ice-cream vendor's pushcart, parked incongruously on the badlands. Thumper had......

The Effect of Technology on Christianity: Blessing or Curse?

...Christianity”. This Cultural Christianity is a belief system that demands that its adherents be kind, affable, pleasant and agreeable. Its disciples are not allowed to be judgmental, critical or divisive. This religious philosophy might better be called "Nice Christianity". The entertainment media, probably the most visible and vocal of the technologies today, has redefined the public image of a Christian into the mold of cultural Christianity. Because the majority of people involved in the industries spawned by the technology do not have first-hand knowledge of Christianity, their portrayal of Christians is a caricature of the real thing. Christians are either portrayed as cultural Chrisitans or as maniacal, brain-dead, and fanatical Bible thumpers. Of course, most people would try to stay away from being considered the latter and would strive to fit into the mold of the former. This is simply one way that Christians allow technologies to set the standards by which they live and operate. Recently, a computer programmer named Ralph Bagley has created a computer video game called Catachumen, which has a Christian focus. The game allows the player to battle with various types of swords. The player fights against demons, hellhounds, fallen angels, minotaurs, and the Devil himself. Although the game is drawing praise from some quarters, it illustrates another curse of technology, the curse of distraction. In the last Friday Symposium, Dr. David Seel pointed out that......

...from Bangalore rode in bikes in a staggered formation, showing their excitement with a rhythmic set of honks and throttle blips announcing their arrival in style. They were greeted at the venue entrance by old friends meeting after a long time as well as curious onlookers who wanted to know more about them. A customary group photograph was clicked under the large Rider Mania banner hung on the main gate, and the riders walked in to join in the celebrations. The proceedings of the day began with the Dirt track races for the 350 cc and the 500 cc Royal Enfield motorcycles. This outdoor event took place on a specially constructed circuit where a huge wigwam was placed and the DJ played some good music to match with the sound of the revving thumpers in the pits. The races started with the roar of engines as the riders opened throttles to negotiate the first uphill section of the course. The circuit was quite bumpy with grass on some curves making it quite a challenge for the riders. The event had its share of spills and thrills. The thumping roar of the engines kept the atmosphere alive as Pravin Patil and Baljeet Gill respectively walked away with the 1st 16 rider mania Enfield Rider Mania started off rather easy on Sunday.

How to Kill a Mockingbird

...Boo Radley was known to be dead, because he has not been seen for years. Many rumors have spread about that he comes out only in the night and walks in other yards. Although some people say he is horrifying he ends up saving a life. Maybe Jem and Scout shouldn’t believe everything that they hear. To kill a Mockingbird Journal entry #5 “But sometimes the bible in the hand of one man is worse than a whiskey bottle in the hand of oh, your father.” Pg: 50 In chapter five I found out that Miss Maudie was not physically referring to Atticus their father, but more about stating how others worry about living in the next world, instead of living in their own. I think in this statement, Miss Maudie is making a comment on some of the “Bible thumpers” in town who use the Bible to criticize, condemn, and punish those around them. I believe she is insinuating that sometimes people can take their religion too far, as for the same way someone can take alcohol too far. I think as Miss Maudie explained this to Scout she realizes how much the town is as a resemblance she says, “You can look down the street and see the results.” Maycomb civilians were very particular on how they lived, although they all seemed to live differently. For example the Cunningham’s were poor and could not pay people back, although they weren’t bad folks, instead of cash they rewarded others with goods.
