Problem: Crayon “graffiti” on 20th century Japanese prints by Munakata Shiko. The prints were mounted to screens, and the graffiti appeared at about 4 ft. from the ground—around the same height as a child. Unlike graffiti on a painted wall, however, crayon does not come off of printed paper quite as easily.

Experiment: Mock-ups were created with Japanese paper, printed with black sumi ink, then colored over with both waxed-based and water soluble crayons. Possible solvents were chosen from the wax section on the Teas diagram and included petroleum ether, mineral spirits, toluene and xylene. These solvents were tested in three situations:

Solvent on a swab
A bath of water and solvent, followed by blotting of the stain
Damp blotter surface with local application of moisture and solvent, followed by blotting of the stain
Results:

Solvents alone did not reduce crayon to a satisfactory level; mineral spirits created a transparent stain visible through the paper
With the bath, it was impossible to control the amount of solvent used, but the overall result was positive
Crayon was lifted locally, but also migrated along with solvents to form tidelines
The ultimate solution was the use of a water-based treatment with toluene and xylene, such as that used in Experiment 2. For best results, Hsin-Chen suggested first manually reducing the graffiti with a kneaded eraser and scalpel.

...July 7th Brings Tragedy Kortney Higgins Eng 101 x-1 Haney 11, September, 2013 Higgins 1 On June 7, 2013, a Ford Focus struck an old beat up Dodge minivan about five miles south of Macomb. This evening was intended to be a wonderful night, with meatloaf, mac 'n cheese, and green beans for dinner, Kara's favorite meal. Tragedy got in the way of a terrific night's plans; my sister and her boyfriend just happened to be aboard that Ford Focus that evening. “Ring, Ring, Ring.” I picked up to hear the voice of my ex- boyfriend, whom I had not spoken to in quite some time, and I instantly heard the panic in his voice. His cracky voice told me that my sister and Brandon had been in a severe car accident, and Brandon was okay, but Kara was being taken to McDonough District Hospital in Macomb by ambulance. “No, not my best-friend, or my big sister!” This news struck me with emptiness. I couldn't bare the thought of my sister being hurt, or not there at all anymore. Jack tried to keep me calm, and told me to not drive, and to stay put unless I found somebody to take me to her. I knew I had to get to that hospital , so I had my friends drive me. I tried getting hold of my parents, but I failed because they were in Florida, and were out for the night. It was a 30- minute drive, that felt like days. I couldn't keep from getting gruesome pictures in my head, and I couldn't stop thinking the worst had happened. As we were driving to meet Kara at the small town hospital...

Sunday Afternoon

...Ramon Medina Eng 121 5 February 2014 Professor Meeks Sunday Afternoon It was Sunday afternoon; I woke up on a hospital bed not knowing where I was or how I got there. I looked around the room confused trying to figure out what went on the night before. I turned to my left and I realized both of my parents were sitting there staring at me. As soon as I looked at them, I recalled the events that happened the night before; immediately, rushes of vague events flashed through my head. I instantly shoved my head back down to the hospital bed ashamed of what I have just realized. I was sixteen years old when I experienced something that had altered my life in countless ways, some for the best and some for the worst. It all arose when my parents’ best friends were getting married; everyone was having a good time and enjoying the wedding. Like most weddings there was dancing, laughter, and many things that gave out a good atmosphere. Everything was going great. The guest were enjoying themselves and the newly weds had that look in their eyes that made many people smile. While I was there I know that I did not want this feeling of having a good time go to an end so soon, so after the wedding some friends invited me to hang out with them. As worried as I was of my parents disappointing me by saying no I got all the courage I had and marched up to them to ask. “ Some friends asked me if I could hangout, could I please go?” asking with a timid voice. Looking......

I heard that one of my friends proposed to his girlfriend, when will they get married.. Who knows but I hope so soon. After I left the house I was on my way to the restaurant I bumped right into one of my friends which he was also on his way to the brunch party. We had a pleasant conversation about the second industrial revolution, Sir Joseph Swan which he invented the first feasible incandescent light bulb he supplied many light bulbs for the Savoy Theater, which we once visited. Jules and I were the first ones to arrive at the restaurant. The host knew right away who I was, since I come every afternoon to the Maison.

...June 2011 Explain the term turnout used in the extract. Turnout represents the number of registered voters who cast a ballot at a given election usually expressed as a percentage. In this extract turnout refers to non-electoral political participation. Traditionally, the political participation of the UK’s citizens is measured by turnout to general elections. For example, in 2005 turnout to the general election was just 60%. This was seen to be a participation crisis by some. This extract would argue that casting a ballot is only part of a person’s political participation. It shows that 62% of people had given money to an organization in the previous 12 months. Also, 50% of people had signed a petition. This suggests individuals choose their involvement in politics in their own way and generalizing that if general election turnout is low, political participation is low is incorrect. This is supported by the POWER report in 2006 that suggested there is not a political participation crisis as there is still involvement on a local level. This suggests that political participation should not just be judged on turnout for general elections but also other acts of political participation. Using your own knowledge as well as the extract, consider why some commentators have spoken of a ‘participation crisis’ in recent years. In recent general elections, declining levels of turnout have led some to believe Britain is having a participation crisis. Meaning, political......

...June 10 – unit 1 Memory 1. Secondary memory Long-term memory B Recognition Rehearsal loop C Central executive Sensory memory A Short-term memory 2. One strategy for memory improvement is an acronym, which is a mnemonic (verbal). An acronym is a word that is produced from the initial letters of the sentence/phrase needed to be remembered. For example, the word “Lol” is said to remember the phrase “laughing out loud”. Mnemonics can also be visual, for example, loci which derived from the Greek meaning of ‘place’. This strategy is simply associating parts of the material needed to be remembered with places, for example, different rooms in your house. So trying to remember the components of the working memory model you could mentally imagine a ‘central executive’ sitting in your bathroom. 3a. There will be a difference between the amount of numbers adults (aged between 30 – 40) can immediately recall compared to children (aged between 5 – 15) 3b. The experimenter used independent group design because the independent variable being tested was age and therefore required two age groups. 3c Age group Mode Children 6 Adults 7 3d. The frequency distribution shows that on average adults recalled more correct digits than children. 3e. These results do support other research because brain capacity is said to increase with age and we develop strategies such as chunking (Miller) also increasing with age. 4.

Considered it as political disturbance It is impossible to understand today’s China and its relationship with the world without understanding the spring of 1989: the legacy of june fourth movement and how it affected today’s Chinese governance and foreign relations. Fear of another national movement, affecting social harmony and stability Today’s China: Politically more oppressive and closed atmosphere: “Neo-authoritarian” rule, relative social stability e.g. Effective state censorship has turned the vast majority of Chinese youth into "amnesiacs", while their parents and others of their generation keep silent about the recent past. Young generation are still ignorant about the event. According to Lim Louisa’s research and experiment, many young best-educated students could not recognize the iconic image of Tiananmen-Tank Man. A vast majority doubted the validity of the photo. e.g. high-school textbooks excluded this incident.

Afternoon Hours

...First Year Writing Dr. Holt 11/13/2011   Second Draft Afternoon Hours   Studies have shown the after school hours from three o’clock to six o’clock to be the time that teenagers partake in experimentation with drugs, alcohol, tobacco, and sex. In a controlled adult supervised environment like an after school program, teenagers are most likely to succeed in school and destroy the risk of getting influenced by bad things National support is needed to create these great after school work environments not only to help the at-risk teenagers, but also children who need academic improvement or some other sort of extracurricular activities. After school programs can help students improve their social skills, self-confidence, school attitude, and academic achievement (“Afterschool”). An after school program can be anything from a sport to a place where they can meet with other people to get work done or simply have fun. It simply needs to be something that occupies their afternoon in a positive manner. The problem is that many children in the United States are left to themselves since there are few programs available to them. Certain areas of the country, especially cities with high crime rates such as New York, Detroit, Los Angeles, St. Louis, and many other, lack right support for children’s education in the three to six o’clock time zone. These areas happen to be some of the roughest in the country because of crime related issues, but more importantly there are not enough......

Afternoons Essay

...“Afternoons” by Philip Larkin is a poem that moves towards a general/ universal statement throughout the play. The poem is about the inevitability of change and the passing of time. In the poem the main characters are mothers who are now living after the peak of their lives where their only objective is to look after and satisfy their children and husbands. Larkin shows the reader this through the play by using various poetic techniques in each of the stanzas. In stanza one Larkin talks about how the mothers are getting much older and have left their glory days behind them: “summer is fading”. This is metaphorically telling the reader that they are more than half way through their lives as the good years are now fading away and leaving them. They are now fading into autumn which shows that they are getting older. “Young mothers assemble” shows us that the older mothers have now been replaced by these “young mothers” who are still in the peak of their lives or as Larkin would say, their summer. The theme of the inevitability of change and the passing of time is made clear through this stanza, especially in the first line. Larkin shows this as he talks about the seasons being stages in life as there isn’t anything the mothers can do to stop it happening just like someone getting older. He also shows that there is change in the mother’s lives as they have been replaced by younger mothers. In the second stanza Larkin talks about the memories that the mothers have......

...1st June: The Sensex closed below psychological mark of 16000 at 15965.16 down 253.37 points or 1.53%. The Nifty ends at 4841.60 down 82.65 points or 1.68%. The breadth of the market was negative with Advance Decline ratio at 1:2. About 836 shares advanced, 1820 shares declined, and 768 shares remain unchanged. A slew of bad economic cues from across the globe didn't help Indian equities either. Reports of monsoon rains over India's mainland will be delayed by about four days also weighed on sentiment. A whole host of disappointing macro economic data including weak PMI data from many countries across the globe dragged the bourses down. BSE FMCG was almost flat with a gain of 0.13%. TATA Coffee closed at 839.85 losing 1.53% along with market sentiments. Volume of TATA Coffee was just 7978 as compared to the average volume of 61877. 8th June: Today, the BSE benchmark recovered 234 points from intraday low of 16,485.02, before closed up 69.82 points at 16,668.87. Meanwhile, the NSE benchmark rebounded from intraday low of 4,994.80, which ended up 18.70 points at 5,068.35. The BSE Sensex and NSE Nifty rebounded quite smartly in late trade on Friday that helped them to close higher in all sessions of the week. The market saw highest ever weekly absolute gains in 2012, with the Nifty rising 4.7% and the Sensex 5%. Recovery in European markets and Indian rupee, and short covering helped the market to bounce back today. Looking at the sharp recovery, it seems that the......
