Beowulf Essay

The Christian Values of the Author

In the year 1000 A.D. a Christian monk wrote the epic poem Beowulf. Beowulf, which is similar to all epic poems, is about an Anglo Saxon hero who stands up for his people. In this piece of literature the author believes that God?s influence touches many realms of life. The realms of life that the author comes upon are goodness overcoming evil, creation of birth, and human behavior.
God?s influence of goodness overcoming evil is stated in The Coming of Beowulf. Beowulf declares, ?God must decide who will be given to death?s cold grip?. The interpretation of this statement is God will decide who will triumph in battle. Goodness being Beowulf or evil being the evil monster Grendel.

Fluorescence Microscopy

Fluorescence Microscopy

Fluorescence Microscope, Cellular Organelles, and the Cytoskeleton

ABSTRACT:
Before the lab began, we started by learning the fluorescent microscope parts to be used, by examining the diagram given to us. Then, learning the theories and key concepts of the lab such as photo bleaching and stoke?s shift. Once we felt comfortable with the florescent microscope we created slides using dog kidney cells, onion cells, human cheek cells, antibody tubulin, and damaged elodea cells. These cells were stained with compounds such as, Alexa 488 ConA lectin, DAPI, and PI or Propidium iodide. The purpose of the stains is to show a few cellular organelle components. We were able to look at cell proteins such as tubulin; Tubulin was our protein of interest that was localized by the antibody from either rabbits or goats. The class was placed into groups and each group used a number of cells variously stained, this way we could divide up labor and view more of the cellular components. The cells were then copied from the monitor and printed for future viewing.

College Athletes

College Athletes

For years, Division I athletes have been pouring their hearts out day after day, week after week, to protect the pride and tradition of their universities. With television contracts and shoe deals alone, the athletes are really bringing in the money and other forms of revenue. Sure, you can say that the typical athletes scholarship is enough to compensate, but are they A true athlete plays the game simply because he loves it. When you?re at the Division I level of sports, it is more or less a business and it is their job to make money for the school. Also, these athletes give up many freedoms. For a given number of hours per week, they give their blood, sweat, and tears just to play a sixty-minute game or run two times around a track. Take these factors and combine it with the athlete?s academic responsibilities, and it?s a lot to account for. When all is said and done, how much money does the athlete see Well, aside from scholarships, they see nothing.
Most people think that an athlete should just be thankful for the education he receives in exchange for a few hours of practice. But an enormous amount of

Beowulf as hero of the time

Every hero is known for taking a big journey. Beowulf?s journey begins when he decides to leave his home in the land of the Geats and travel to Denmark to help the Danes fight the creature named Grendel, which has been attacking them for twelve years. Once arriving Beowulf announces that he is the son of Ecgtheow, a man known for winning his battles. The assumption can be made that he is trying to live up to his father?s reputation. His leadership skills are superb and he is even able to boast about all his achievements. In his argument with Unferth, Beowulf explains the reason he “lost” a simple swimming match with his youthful opponent Brecca. Not only had he been swimming for seven nights, he had also stopped to kill nine sea creatures in the depths of the ocean.
Beowulf?s first encounter with Grendel is at night when the warriors are asleep. Beowulf is there, watching Grendel, waiting for him to strike. The creature picks up a warrior and swallows him completely, then decides to strike Beowulf but Beowulf seizes his vicious claw and holds on to

Coaching Styles

Coaching Styles

According to Rainer Martens, author of the best selling coaching book Successful Coaching, there are three basic coaching styles. They are the command style, the submissive style and the cooperative style. (Martens) In addition to those styles, there are two other styles, which are the democratic style and the hanger on.
The command style according Martens is when the make all of the decisions and the athletes have no inputs. (Martens) With this style the theory is made that the coach has knowledge and experience, it is to the coach role to tell the athlete what to do. The athlete?s role in the command style is to listen, to absorb and to comply with the coach?s directions. It?s proven that the command style can be very effective if winning is the primary goal and its authoritarian nature does not contain the athlete?s motivation. (Martens) Coaches that use this style are not letting the athletes enjoying themselves and give them room for error. In today?s world, the command style is not being used as much by coaches.

Beowulf

Beowulf

Beowulf is an epic poem that has been told from generation to generation in the Anglo-Saxon culture. The poem tells about a heroic man, Beowulf, who becomes a legend among his people and saves a village in a time of need. Beowulf has many heroic characteristics such as super human strength and excellent leadership skills. Beowulf emerges as the true Anglo Saxon hero who risks his life for the lives and well being of others.
Beowulf was a Geat who had great physical strength. Stories of his glorious feats made him a hero among his people. He is able to use his super-human physical strength and courage to put his people before himself. He encounters hideous monsters and ferocious beasts but he never fears the threat of death. His leadership skills are superb and he is even able to boast about all his achievements. Beowulf has many traits that make him a hero. He shows no fear in the face of danger. Whenever Beowulf goes into battle, he shows no fear because he is not afraid to die. Another heroic trait of Beowulf is his ability to put his peoples welfare before

Chemical Reaction Activity

Chemical Reaction Activity

Acids and bases play a central role in chemistry because, with the exception of redox reactions, every chemical reaction can be classified an as acid-base reaction. Our understanding of chemical reactions as acid-base interactions comes from the wide acceptance of the Lewis definition of acids and bases, which supplanted both the earlier Bronsted-Lowry concept and the first definition–the Arrhenius model. Arrhenius first defined acids as proton (H) producers in aqueous solution and bases as hydroxide (OH) producers. Although this model is intuitively correct, it is limited to substances that include proton and hydroxide groups. Lewis gave us the more general definition of acids and bases that we use today. According to Lewis, acids are electron pair acceptors and bases are electron pair donors. Any chemical reaction that can be represented as a simple exchange of valence electron pair to break and form bonds is therefore an acid-base reaction.

Coaching Roles

Coaching Roles

Some of the most persuasive people in your life could very likely be your coaches. The coaches that I remember differed very much in there personalities. I played football and threw shot and discus in high school. My two coaches for track were very motivating. They never got frustrated with me. Their patience was very rare in that they had a lot of it, and they always went out of their way to give you that extra help. My discus coach helped me fine tune my throw so well that it took me to metro two years in a row. On the other hand, the football coaches were a completely different story. (They were a breed of their own, and were the epitome of the ?jar head? football coaching staff). It?s hard to keep a straight face when a coach with the I.Q. of a bowling ball is yelling at you and the best thing he can come up with to call you is ?a box of rocks?(you had to have been there).

Beowulf

Beowulf

Beowulf?s words and deeds suggest numerous things about traditional Anglo-Saxton values. The tale of Beowulf is of good against evil; man against demon; ethics and morals against personal gain from murdering others. In this story all of the monsters are associated with Cain, who, in the bible, is the first murderer that ever existed. The main monster in Beowulf is Grendel, and that is who Beowulf faces against. Grendel represents everything that opposes the Anglo-Saxton values and beliefs. Grendel is extremely irate, insecure, and unaware of himself, while Beowulf is loyal, courageous, and confident and, of course, the exemplification that all other Anglo-Saxton?s desired to be.
Firstly, there is the idea of being courageous and standing up for something a person may believe in. Beowulf believed in destroying the monster, and saving all of the people. He did so. Grendel was not brave enough to stand up to Beowulf, and therefore, he was destroyed. “. . . Grendels one thought was to run. From Beowulf, flee back to his marsh and hide there:? demonstrates this point. He was not able to escape, and he did not deserve the chance to, because he lacked the audacity in which Beowulf had.
