Project X is a movie about three seniors who fly under the radar in high school. Costa and Thomas are best friends. Costa is loud, outgoing, and wants more than anything to be popular and have people know his name. Thomas is quite the opposite, he is more reserved and only concerned about a girl he likes. Thomas’ parents decide to go away for the weekend, which leaves the house free for Thomas’ birthday party. Thomas has many reservations about the party but allows it thinking that the girl he likes will show up. After many invitations are extended people begin to arrive. Things go from a controlled environment to absolute chaos, with the use of sex, drugs, and alcohol. In this paper I will discuss the movie as well as its relation to drugs and alcohol have with Biology.

Costa invites people over to Thomas’ to celebrate his eighteenth birthday. They have their friend Dax film it all. Costa believes that for the party they need alcohol and marijuana, so they have to find it and pick it up. While picking up the marijuana they steal a garden gnome from the dealer’s house not realizing what was inside. Back at the house people started to arrive and what begins as a small get together, quickly turns into a large gathering. All the kids are drinking alcohol, smoking marijuana, and partying; when one of them decides to try and hit to garden gnome with a baseball bat. As he tosses it in the air he swings and smashes it into smithereens, sending hundreds of ecstasy pills through the air. Partiers dive to grab them, and from there things go from bad to worse. Even Thomas as reserved as he is takes a pill and begins to let lose and party with all of the guests. Thomas begins to sweat and the room seems to be spinning, he gathers his bearings for the ride ahead of him. He finally talks to his crush and makes his move. Thomas begins to care a little less…...

...actual execution of the code. The typical example of relative reference is : addresses of the symbols defined in the Label field, addresses of the data which is defined by the assembler directive, literals, redefinable symbols. Similarly, the typical example of absolute address is the constants which are generated by assembler are absolute. The assembler calculates which addresses are absolute and which addresses are relative during the assembly process. During the assembly process the assembler calculates the address with the help of simple expressions. For example LOADA(X)+5 The expression A(X) means the address of variable X. The meaning of the above instruction is that loading of the contents of memory location which is 5 more than the address of variable X. Suppose if the address of X is 50 then by above command we try to get the memory location 50+5=55. Therefore as the address of variable X is relative A(X) + 5 is also relative. To calculate the relative addresses the simple expressions are allowed. It is expected that the expression should possess at the most addition and multiplication operations. A simple exercise can be carried out to determine whether the given address is absolute or relative. In the expression if the address is absolute then put 0 over there and if address is relative then put lover there. The expression then gets transformed to sum of O's and l's. If the resultant value of the expression is 0 then expression is absolute. And if the resultant......

Malcolm X

...see many different types of people. Not only people with different personalities, but people with different types of race and ethnicity. In our present day it is very rare for you to go somewhere and notice that everyone is all one race or ethnicity. Going back many years ago, if one were to use the same bathroom as an African American you were viewed as a traitor and a bad person. Now imagine living that way today, imagine how difficult it would be to find a job or even do your daily routines, it would almost be impossible. The real question is what caused all of the racism to change or who can we thank for all of this? There are a great number of people who came up and made a stand against this which helps us live freely today. Malcolm X was born Malcolm Little on May 19, 1925 in Omaha, Nebraska. His mother, Louise Norton Little, was a homemaker occupied with the family's eight children. Louise father was Scottish which made Louise have a very light complexion, so light she could even pass for white. His father, Earl Little, was an outspoken Baptist minister and avid supporter of Black Nationalist leader Marcus Garvey. Earl's civil rights activism constantly received death threats from the white supremacist organization Black Legion, which forced the family to relocate twice before Malcolm's fourth birthday. Regardless of the Little's efforts to elude the Legion, in 1929 their Lansing, Michigan home was burned to the ground. Two years later, Earl's body was found lying......

Malcom X

...MALCOLM X Learning to Read Malcolm Little, born in Omaha, Nebraska, in 1925, was reborn Malcolm X in his twenties while imprisoned for burglary. (He considered "Little" a slave name and chose the "X" to signify his lost African tribal name.) His conversion to Islam under the Nation of Islam and his rigorous self-education led him to a life ofpolitical activism marked by hatred, violence, and hope. For a time, as the foremost spokesman of the Nation of Islam, Malcolm preached a separatist philosophy with racist rhetoric; on breaking with the Nation of Islam and converting to orthodox Islam after a pilgrimage to Mecca, Malcolm again changed his name (to El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz) and philosophy, moving closer to the integrationist goals of the mainstream civil rights movement. Not quite a year later, he was assassinated. "Learning to Read" is an excerpt from The Autobiography of Malcolm X (1965), which was written by Alex Haley from interviews completed shortly before Malcolm's death. While ghostwritten, Malcolm's fierce intelligence and passion are evident; it is easier to miss the sometimes surprising moments of humor, but look for them because they give a fuller sense of the man. It was because of my letters that I happened to stumble upon starting to acquire some kind of a homemade education. I became increasingly frustrated at not being able to express what I wanted to convey in letters that I wrote, especially those to Mr. Elijah Muhammad. In the street, I had been......

X-Game

...X-Game In this time, I choose this movie which is X-Game. This movie was made by Japan. The story is basically a revenge tale. When main characters were elementary school student, bullying which was called X-Game was done to only her. She was not cute and depressed, so she was bullied from main characters. Bullying was decided by lottery which was made by a paper. Those things which were written penalty were put lottery into red box. After 12 years, the bullied girl thinks that forces her attackers to play much more violent version of the game to main characters. This game was made by a secret organization. They captures these bullies and sets them up for her. This game rules were a little bit change from previous game. Main characters had to perfectly do drawn penalty while just 3 minutes. This penalty became harder than received her. For example, one game forces one victim to sit on a chair full of spikes and barbed wire, another game has a victim chug a ridiculous amount of milk, and a challenge has them burn the hair of another. If they could not do this penalty, they got special penalty. While they handled one penalty after another penalty, their friendship, plot of secret organization, and feeling which wanted to live by some means appeared more and more. Bullying which is expressed by this psychological thriller movie is a big problem in the current world. Why did this movie express bullying? I think that bullying gradually is increasing in the current world, and a......

Malcolm X

...Hunter Dixon Mrs. Richardson Term Paper Final Draft 08 December 2013 The Angriest Man In America Without a doubt, Malcolm X is one of the most iconic figures in the history of our country. He is best remembered for the passion and power he displayed during all of his speeches, but his legacy has roots so much deeper than just that. He was the self-proclaimed “angriest man in America,” and he even openly called white people devils. Malcolm spent his whole life preparing himself for an inevitable death (Malcolm X, A Leader of Black Pride). He wanted to get his message out to the world before his time came, and it came much too early for a man like him. Malcolm X will live on throughout history because he was so passionate in his beliefs; though they changed often, he always stood up for what he believed was right, and there is nothing more respectable than that. Even if the man’s beliefs were radical at times. Malcolm’s birth name was Malcolm Little. He was born in Omaha, Nebraska on May 19, 1925 to parents Rev. Earl and Louise Little, the fourth of eight children (The Autobiography of Malcolm X). When he was about a year and a half old, his parents decided it was best to move out of Omaha after a Klu Klux Klan band warned them to leave, or else face consequences (Malcolm X). After passing through Milwaukee for a short time (Malcolm X, A Leader of Black Pride), they eventually found a place to stay, in Lansing, Michigan. Even though they had a new home, the......

Fragile X

...What is fragile X syndrome? Fragile X syndrome is a genetic condition that causes a range of developmental problems including learning disabilities and cognitive impairment. Usually, males are more severely affected by this disorder than females. Affected individuals usually have delayed development of speech and language by age 2. Most males with fragile X syndrome have mild to moderate intellectual disability, while about one-third of affected females are intellectually disabled. Children with fragile X syndrome may also have anxiety and hyperactive behavior such as fidgeting or impulsive actions. They may have attention deficit disorder (ADD), which includes an impaired ability to maintain attention and difficulty focusing on specific tasks. About one-third of individuals with fragile X syndrome have features of autism spectrum disorders that affect communication and social interaction. Seizures occur in about 15 percent of males and about 5 percent of females with fragile X syndrome. Most males and about half of females with fragile X syndrome have characteristic physical features that become more apparent with age. These features include a long and narrow face, large ears, a prominent jaw and forehead, unusually flexible fingers, flat feet, and in males, enlarged testicles (macroorchidism) after puberty. How common is fragile X syndrome? Fragile X syndrome occurs in approximately 1 in 4,000 males and 1 in 8,000 females. What genes are related to fragile X......

Malcolm X

...The Importance of Attending College In the article "Learning Behind Bars" by Malcolm X, he says that it was because of his letters that he happened to stumble upon starting to gain some kind of homemade education. He became frustrated for not being able to express his feelings, especially to Mr. Elija Muhammad. Malcolm X says that nowadays when people hear or read something that he had said; people think that his education is far beyond the eight grade. He began his education in the Charlestown Prison. In his slow, painstaking ragged handwriting; he copied the dictionary's page as much as he can and then he start reading what he wrote over and over to himself. According to him "dictionary is like a miniature encyclopedia". His word-base had broadened, for the first time he could read and understand what the book was saying. Reading had changed his life. He says that prison enabled him to study far more intensively that he would have if his life had gone dirrerently and he had attended some college. Malcolm X says that one of the biggest troubles with colleges is there are too many distractions and that reading is the road to education. Malcolm X is incorrect in his assertion because the total college experience is the best way to gain an education. College is an environment filled with various types of people from an array of different cultural, economic, political, and religious backgrounds. One of the biggest benefits of being immersed within such a community is......

X-Ray

...X-Radiation Project Abstract This project will look at the history of X-radiation in its notable historical forms and trace the use of the technology all the way to contemporary forms of X-Radiation, including computed tomography. The origins of the two technologies will be traced as well as the improvements that have been made to them over the past number of decades. The importance of the technology will be assessed in terms of its efficiency and usefulness in the context of modern medicine. The finding is that CT, CAT, and X-ray allow for great convenience, lower cost, and higher quality imaging than is possible without these technologies. Background & State of the Art The story of X-rays begins in the late Nineteenth Century when a German professor named Wilhelm Conrad Roentgen introduced the discovery that a cathode ray tube could create a fluorescent glow of crystals that were placed on a surface near the tube (NA, 2014). After giving the cathode ray tube a higher voltage and removing all air from the inside of the tube, the professor found that the tube gave nearby objects a fluorescent glow of light. The upshot for the professor from this improvised experiment was that the tube must be giving off a new kind of ray that scientists were not yet familiar with. The most significant part of Roentgen’s discovery, for modern medical purposes, at least, was that the new......

Malcolm X

...Wesley Maschke D. Allen University Writing 28 January 2016 Malcolm X Reading the essay as a whole, I found it very interesting and enlightening to a side of thinking that I have never done before. It's astounding how a man can go from being an almost illiterate convict to a very knowledgeable reader, while in prison. One thing that bothered me about the content was the story about Nat Turner. It seems as if all of the African community applauds Nat for his actions. I believe that Nat’s actions and the commandment of those actions negate any sort of pity that should be felt for the African community. Even if the white people were being outlandishly evil to the blacks, it does not give the blacks any sort of right to retaliate and kill white people out of anger. I believe the ways of Martin Luther King Jr. were the most ethical and respectable ways to go about the civil rights movement. Peace and patience are a lot more respectable than violence when it comes to achieving a goal. On the other hand, I agree with Malcolm X in the fact that what white people have done is completely inexcusable. The writing of this piece is also very interesting. The chronological arrangement of Malcolm’s life adds to the effect of how much being in prison actually changed him. The addition of other outside sources that drove Malcolm for change makes his new lifestyle appear to be very noble. A quote that describes the differences in jail and outside of jail is, “Some were said by many to be...

Malcolm X

...Kenya Davis Ms. Howard Sociology 02 March 2016 MLK Jr vs Malcolm X Martin Luther King Jr and Malcolm X had many similarities and differences when it came to their roles in the civil rights movement. A huge similarity of the two is they fought hard for their people with getting treated bad. They both wanted to see black people in the best position possible. Risking their lives everyday for the rights they felt they deserve. They were both assassinated because of their leadership role positions they played during this time. Even though they had different beliefs/religions, both their religions played a significant role in their approaches. They both had the greatest impact on the civil rights movement during the 1960s. One of the main reasons why Malcolm X and MLK Jr is different is their approach to the civil rights movement. While MLK Jr wanted to keep the peace and have a non-violent protest, Malcolm X was very opposite. Malcolm X felt that if they wanted to be violent then so should his people. Also, MLK Jr thought more of people being equal and Malcolm X was more for his people being in high power and being controlled by themselves. Also, their religion was a extremely huge difference and had an impact on the way they went about things. MLK Jr grew up in a Christian home where his parents stressed necessary things such as education and religion. Malcolm X converted to Islam after being arrested for drugs and burglary. His outlook on things were far more violent...

Generation X

...The Generation X. INTRODUCTION Generation X includes those people who are born between the early 1960s(nineteen sixtys) and the early 1980s(nineteen eightys). This generetion is likely presented by our parents. Gen X are trapped by two much larger generations – the Baby Boomers ahead and the Millennials behind – that are completely different from one another. Gen X grew up in an era of emerging technology, political and institutional changes. This generation spent less time with their parents than previous generations of children had. They found themselves home alone and taking care of themselves and their siblings, while their parents worked. They were not coddled for every emotional need and want. IN WORKPLACE They learned independence early in life and turned it into a valuable hallmark as they progressed in the working world. In Generation X, we see a highly independent, outspoken, adaptable and fearless group of employees who can move your company forward with their ability to lead for example, their competence and their willingness to take risks necessary for corporate growth. The workplace challenges for this group are less likely to be related to independent project management or leadership. In addition to the workplace issues facing the general employee population, the Gen X worker will more likely struggle at work with: career development; conflict resolution and office politics; multigenerational team projects. Now I want to mention some of work style......

Gen X

...Generation X and Y in the Workplace In an age of hard economic times, two income families, and the offspring of the baby boomers, Generation X and Y learned to adapt to changes very early in their lives. Instead of coming home to mom sitting in the kitchen with cookies and milk, children were shuffled off to daycare facilities or baby sitters. Others called “latchkey” children, came home to an empty house with instructions to get their homework done, never answer the door, and wait until “mom and dad” came home. These individuals are independent, resourceful, and extremely clever with technology. As they enter the workforce the need to be extremely self-sufficient is a key to success and job fulfillment. The downturn of the current economy combined with corporate buyouts and layoffs, Generation X and Y find themselves working alongside an aging workforce with the belief that corporations do not value their contributions and hard work. This concept makes it difficult for these individuals to attain projected financial goals and be successful. Seeking to retire at an early age to enjoy life, Generation X and Y are optimistic of the future and thrive to find balance in their professional and personal lives. Expectations and Influences The expectations and influences of Generation X and Y impact the workforce differently in many ways because of life experiences and backgrounds. Generation X, born between 1965 and 1980 grew up in the shadows of the boomer generation.......
