Number Of Basketball Players In Research
Division of Basketball Players
Children develop bad habits at a young age and continue these bad habits until they are corrected.
Sometimes these things aren't corrected until its almost too late. Habits can be picked up from
parents, grandparents, coaches, and peers. I know that the longer I am around someone the more I
act like that person. In any sport you will have many coaches and you will learn something you
didn't know with every coach you have. But some things aren't developed from others, some players
are born with these characters and help them become the type of player they are.
1. The Dramatic Player: The dramatic player overreacts about everything to draw attention to their
self so they can be the center of attention. For example, on my basketball team Susie is constantly
getting hurt. One day at practice she gently fell to the ground and instantly started acting like she
had fallen from a 10 story building. As a teammate of Susie I have learned that it is easier to give her
the attention as soon as she starts acting out. Another type of player is one that makes everything
said to them a big deal. Some players on the team cannot take criticism, or being told what to do.
Susie is this type of player also, and will turn a simple "please look for me on the block" to "throw
me the darn ball next ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ...
The Excuse maker: The excuse maker constantly has a rhyme or reason to why they did not do
something or to why they did do something. For example, Lilly on my basketball team will blame
her man scoring on someone else when clearly they scored because she wasn't playing any defense.
The most common excuse used in basketball is "that wasn't my man" when in reality nine times out
of ten it is the excuse makers man. These types of players would rather the team suffer than put forth
the effort to do what is asked of them. Like people say "one bad apple will ruin the whole bunch", I
wouldn't say the excuse maker ruins the whole team but they do make it hard to

Should We Pay For Our Things?

should split the bill. I was fine paying for the whole thing, but whatever. Though I wonder... "What

facial expression she was thrown off by what I just said. "Pardon me?" "You're paying for this date,"
I repeated, hoping she wouldn't fall for my easily avoidable trap. "But since this is fake, doesn't it
seems reasonable to..." "You're the one who invited me on this stupid movie date, right? So, it's only

Mistakes are the key to making new discoveries all around us. How do you think we learned about

to cook food all because of an accident, of taking chocolate in his warm pocket onto a factory floor.
According to Martin Farquhar Tupper, a 19th Century English writer "Error is a hard plant; it

Advantages Of Staying At Home Vs Movie Theater
When thinking about a trip to the movie theater, what comes to mind? Most may think of the
delicious, perfectly cooked, buttered popcorn, and huge movie screen with surround sound. While
others may think of the obnoxiously loud atmosphere and inconvenient show times. Everyone has
their opinion on which movie viewing option they think is better; the movie theater, or home. When
it "boils down" to the facts, it is not hard to see why staying at home is the prefered movie–watching
experience over the the movie theater experience, the reasons why this may be so is the cost, the
inconvenience of show times, and viewing options
The Cost
The first point to consider is the cost. Movie theater tickets and concession prices are always on the
rise. ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ...
The Show Times
Another point to consider is the inconvenient show times. Often, movie theater showtimes seem to
be impossible to work around or plan for. This can especially be the case for people who work a job
during the day. For example, if a woman wanted to go see a movie with her friend after work, the
planning around the movie theater showtimes becomes very tedious quickly. If the woman gets off
at five, then that automatically knocks out the 5:00 movie viewing time. The next available show
time isn't until 7:30, but she has work the next day and she needs to get home at a decent hour in the
day. Therefore she has to cancel her plans with her friend solely due to the fact that the movie
theater only had certain viewing times that weren't catering to her schedule. On the contrary, show
times at home are a "24–7" deal. Anytime a person feels like watching a movie at home is the
perfect time. We are able to watch virtually any movie at any time with the click of a remote button
or the tap of an app on our smart phones. Therefore, making the home movie viewing experience the
ultimate choice because of the convenient "24–7" showtimes.
The Viewing Options
The last point to consider is the viewing options. According to Pew Research Center (2006) 58% of
people don't go out to the movie theater more often is due to the fact that there are too few good
movies to see( pg 3.) And it's not hard to see

Popcorn History
A history of popcorn
When it comes to popcorn, more often than not it's the sound that hits you first with its "pop, pop,
popping". It starts off nice and slowly before heading full steam ahead into a firestorm of kernels as
they almost magically transform into clouds of crunchy white goodness. The next thing you'll no
doubt notice is the incredible smell that wafts through the room and eventually the entire house,
slowly pulling you in as it teases your nose. You'll feel weak as the popcorn tantalises your taste
buds. By the time your teeth crunch down on the first bite, you're totally and utterly hooked.
Popcorn happens to be one of the most popular snacks and described by some as a completely
irresistible treat. As they say, the proof is ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ...
His recipe included the use of a grill, a half–pint glass of popcorn and a frying pan that had been
rubbed with lard or butter. He advised holding the pan over the fire whilst constantly stirring or
shaking the corn and within a few minutes, the popcorn should have turned inside out to reveal the
delicious white, fluffy centre. He also mentioned the addition of salt or sugar whilst it was still hot
for added flavour. The issue with this particular method however seemed to be with the lard or
butter. The butter would usually begin to burn before the pan reached a hot enough temperature and
the lard would create popcorn that was covered in slime–like grease. It wasn't until the latter portion
of the 19th century that a more efficient way of popping popcorn was discovered. What were
deemed to be "poppers" were actually boxes made of tight wire gauze and had long handles
attached. They were designed to be held over an open flame. The design of poppers offered a
number of benefits including the containment of popped kernels whilst also keeping any hands away
from the heat source. Over the years, the popper became hugely popular and as a result a number of
improvements were made to make it bigger and better than ever. Due to the improvements, popcorn
became even more accessible to the masses of people wanting to get their hands on

Which Brand of Popcorn Pops Up the Most Corn?
Which Brand Of Popcorn Pops Up The Most Corn?
By A. Stone
Problem
Nobody likes to get to the end of their popcorn bowl only to have most of the popcorn not popped. It
is very frustrating to purchase popcorn and end up with a bowl of un–popped kernels. Well, this
experiment is to determine which brand of popcorn yields the least amount of un–popped kernels?
Reason
The reason I decided on doing this project is because the materials required are inexpensive and
easily available at most grocery or dollar stores. Through this experiment, I can educate consumers
on which brand pops up the most corn, therefore saving them money.
Hypothesis
There are many differing opinions on which popcorn has the least amount of un–popped kernels.

Procedures
The purpose of this experiment was to test multiple brands of popcorn under the same setting in
order to conclude which one statistically popped the most kernels. I tested the butter flavor of
Orville Redenbacher, Wal–mart's Great Value brand, and Pop Weavers. The different bags of
popcorn were popped in the same microwave for the same amount of time, 3 minutes and 15
seconds. Then, the popped corn was counted, as well as the un–popped kernels, in order to
determine a ratio, and then I recorded the results in the data table. I repeated these steps two more
times for a total of 3 trails for each brand. Then I compared the ratios of all the bags to determine
which brand yielded the most popped corn. The statistical technique used to evaluate the data was to
find a ratio between the number of kernels in the bottom of the bowl and the number of popped
kernels. To find this, I divided the number of the actual popped corns by the total number of kernels
left in the bottom of the bowl. The ratios and percent were then compared. Once all my results were
in the data table, I averaged the 3 trials for each brand of popcorn.

Advantages And Disadvantages Of Going To The Movie Theatre
The lights begin to dim until you can barely see what is around you. The smell of butter is in the air
as you recline your seat back till you are nearly vertical with the floor. Then a bright light shines in
front of you, so massive it is impossible to miss. It is finally starting. The movie is finally starting.
There is a significant reason why people occasionally go to the movie theatre to watch a movie
rather than just watch the movie at home. Going to the theatre means tons of popcorn, extra comfy
seats, a dark and loud room, and a giant screen. Going to the movies is a whole experience in itself.
Have you ever had a bad experience at the movie theatre though? One where your shoes begin to
squeak because you step in someone's spilt slushy or as you sit in your chair you hear the crunch of
the previous person's left over popcorn underneath you. Not only does this situation make you
frustrated and irritated, it also distracts you from the movie you went to the theatre to see. If you
have a bad time at the movie theatre, you may not even remember the movie you went to see
because you are distracted by all the things around you. In this case, going to the movie theatre
actually takes away from the movie itself. Going to the movie theatre should let you become totally
engrossed in the movie and even enhance the movie itself. When one goes to a movie theatre it
needs to be clean. The floors should be clean and dry not wet and sticky. The seats should be

The American disaster of the twin towers terrorist attack is also written about in the book. This
chapter has much emotion unlike the rest of the book, which I view as a poor point of the author as
although it was an international tragedy, the book itself should be focused upon the economics and I
feel the author spends too long speaking about the tragedy. The idea of the theory was good though
as it is current news that almost everyone knows and cares about – they also all have an emotional
bias and opinion on it. McKenzie explains the economics later on in the chapter very well although
his own personal opinion comes through too much. After his emotional introduction to the chapter,
there are too many numbers and not enough explanation, which is different to the remainder of the
books as generally he gets the balance right between the two.
The final chapter that I am going to analyse is 'why so many prices end with 9' this chapter is clear
cut and extremely interesting I found. The psychology behind the marketing choice is fascinating
and he uses economics in a daily surrounding which intrigues me more and I'm sure many others
that read the book. McKenzie had a very balanced and unbiased view in this chapter, although he
does occasionally assume that the average person is very simple and not intelligent in the least. He

My Visit At A New Church
For this assignment, I decided to write about my visit to a "portable church."
As a matter of fact, this assignment had come at a perfect time in my life. For quite some time, I had
been looking for an excuse to visit a new church. I did not feel like I was getting enough substance,
or the "meat and potatoes" and I was hungry for more. I had always thought about visiting other but
I could never get myself to walk through the doors. In the eyes of the philosopher Plato, I was sitting
complacently in "the cave."
But that was when my mom suggested visiting a portable church, inside a local movie theater to be
specific. The church I had grown up in was large and extremely conservative. I had grown
accustomed to the rows of wooden pews that creaked every time a person shifted their position, and
the beautiful stain windows that sparkled when the light hit them at the right angle. The thought of
stepping inside a worldly building that smelled like buttered popcorn and had sticky floors to
worship was not only an uncomfortable thought but also it felt disgraceful.
Our church had always taught us to wear our finest clothes out of respect for entering God's home
and all I could picture in my head of the people I had never met from the portable church included

kernels than popcorn kernels stored at room temperature? By performing this experiment we can

Keep in mind that you must enter the amount of time on your microwave that you chose from your
time testing trial. Do not use the popcorn button that is standard on most microwaves. It is important
to test the time with one frozen and one shelf stored popcorn package. This will allow us to record
the exact time needed to perform our test on the remaining bags of popcorn.
7. Now perform two trials of test with one bag of frozen popcorn kernels and one bag of room
temperature popcorn. It is important to record the data off of each trial separately.
8. When finished recording your numbers from the two trail experiments take the average of each
trial and compare the final results.
Reasoning of this design.
The brand of popcorn testing has proven to be inconsistent. Each major brand of popcorn claims to
have the highest amount of popped kernels. We chose this method of experiment because we can
control the variables of the experiment. By controlling the temperature we can determine which
method will yield the most amount of popcorn instead of relying on which brand claims to have the
most yield of popcorn or studies on brands. This experiment can be used on all brands as long as the
brand name stays the same.

Do Different Brands Of Popcorn Affect How Many Kernels
Do different brands of popcorn affect how many kernels pop?
Introduction
The grocery store shelves are filled with many varieties, sizes, and brands of the same item. There
are numerous kinds of popcorn, large and small, produced by different manufacturers. Some people
choose products based on need, some base their decisions on price and some base their decision on
quality or brand loyalty. With all of these options it can be difficult to choose. You may want to save
money but at what cost? In this experiment we will determine if generics are equivalent alternatives
or if we really get what we pay for. (Bautista, 2006)

2.Heat stove at a medium–high heat (7/10 on most stove units); let it heat up for 3 minutes
*To keep the heat the same medium–high heat for each run of the experiment.
3.Add 1T of peanut oil
*Peanut oil has a higher smoke point and has less of a chance of burning during the experiment.
4.Once stove has reached medium–high heat (3 minutes has passed), insert 1 popcorn kernel into the
pot.
*This step makes sure the stove is hot enough for the popcorn to pop.
5.Once test kernel has popped, pour in the popcorn kernels into the pot, put the pot top on, and
immediately start timer for seconds.
*The timer has to be started as soon as the popcorn is put into the pot so that the time stays
consistent. When the top is put on, after the popcorn is put in the pot, it not only keeps the popped
popcorn in the pot during the popping, but also keeps the heat inside allowing the popcorn a greater
chance of absorbing moisture.
6.Once timer has gone off after 30 seconds, quickly remove pot from heating surface and quickly
pour into bowl.
*To make sure the same amount of heat is given to both name brand and generic and is removed
from the stove surface as soon as the timer goes off.

I Learned A World Without Creations
Imagine a world without creations. Imagine if everyone was the same and there were no innovative
thinkers. There would literally be nothing. Nothing would be new and everything would be bland.
With everything that is spontaneous, creative and innovative comes a maker to show you what those
words exactly mean. Makers are what make this world so interesting. A world without makers is like
a world without color. Makers are important to society and if you decide to become one, you will
learn a lot of great lessons, meet new people and think of ideas you may have never thought of
before. In my english class, I had been studying the maker movement. I had became a maker and I
learned plenty of things while in the maker workshops. As a maker, I learned to use familiar items in
unfamiliar ways, that it's okay to be stuck while creating and to merge science, art and technology
into one.
Being a maker is like being an artist. You can create anything your brain comes up with. A maker is
basically a creator who thinks outside of the box to create, improve or learn something either alone
or with other makers. Makers usually create in certain places called makerspaces. Makerspaces are
creative, do it yourself spaces where people can gather to create, invent, and learn together or by
themselves. These places are usually found in libraries or classrooms. Makers are very creative
inventors and very creative learners as well. When you become a maker, you will learn a ton of new

Personal Narrative: The Change
The Change
It was a bright and sunny day on June 3, 1995. Such a good day that I was in the mood to become
something different, something that no one would expect to become, but what I had in mind wasn't
what I was hoping for. It was nice out and Brandon and I had some unfinished business we needed
to take care of. We got mad at each other earlier that day, got into a big fight and ended up messing
up moms' big day. On top of that, he blamed the whole thing on me which I can never forgive him
for, but I can also never forget what happened to Brandon.
We never got to go out much when we were younger, but not that we're out of school and into
college, it's a lot easier to go out without mom nagging to us. Brandon and I had a little bit of free ...

became very hairy, like Bigfoot, and my mouth started to ache in pain as well as my feet. I never
realized what was wrong with me until I got back to my college dorm. Where my roommate said
that there was something wrong with my face. My roommate always jokes around so I normally
don't believe him, but something did feel a little off. I took off my shoes and socks and most of the
foot pain went away. In that same time my roommate just kept saying feet over and over again.
Wondering what he was talking about, I looked at my feet and just about had a heartattack. My feet
somehow weren't feet anymore. They were... hooves! My roommate threatened to call the police on

Cracker Jack Case Analysis

The primary reason for the Borden Foods to divert itself from snacks is to emphasis its efforts and
resources in the growth of their whole–wheat meal segments. Because of this valuation they had and
a growth plan they had they decided to announce sale of Cracker Jack in 1997. The management
team of Broaden also recognized that with the increase in competition they have not been able to
successfully grow the sales figure in past five years. Also because the Cracker Jack brand has
various packaging options and has been maintaining a huge product line of 32 Stock–Keeping Units

Evaluation of Alternative
Cracker Jacks sales will represent a tiny part of the Frito–Lay's business currently, however the
chances are high to get the numbers high from this division if proper decisions are made. Frito–Lay
is the leader in the US market concerning market share and sales volume. So they can use their
advertising and marketing experience to uplift CJ. CJ should be marketed as a stackable treat which
is healthy as of natural ingredients like popcorn. Marketing researchers should focus on the small
children as the target market as well. By launching the different sizes and convenient packages to
the customers so that they can grab it and go rather than having a box. The CJ should be made
available to as many stores as possible by utilizing the same direct store delivery channels. A careful
analysis has to be done to change any features like gifts in each bag and the flavor of the CJ,
because that is the major point of CJ and most of the customers are attracted because of that
particular features.
Recommendation
In my opinion the Borden Foods will sell the company for above 30 million dollars based on the
assets it has and the goodwill for the year ending 1996. However the Frito–Lay should only pay
around 25 million dollars for acquisitions of the company.

Movie Theater Experience
Experiencing Film in Theaters Watching movies is probably one of my favorite activities, it does not
matter if the movie good or bad; I just want to watch them. I loved going to the theaters as a kid
because the entire experience was always so exciting, especially since it was the first thing my
mother let me do out on my own. Going to the movies had always been a blessing but as I have
grown I have made an effort to go less often. While the experience is still the same I just notice just
how bad the overall experience can be as well.
Honestly, the best part of watching a movie in theaters is the movie theater experience; for example
the seats, the popcorn, the large screen, the sound system, the people, and the new releases. It is not
just you in your room watching a movie, it is you reacting to the film and to the people around you
around you as well, all the while getting all these over the top elements as well. Movie going takes a
common experience and amplifies it so it feels like you're getting something even greater.
Plus, my favorite part for any film has always been the trailers; the exciting bits and pieces of
coming films thrown together to entice future visits. With fast paced action and cliffhanging details
that are thrown in the 2–3 minute time frame, I am left wanting to come back and see that movie
when it comes out. It is how they reel me in and keep me coming back in regular intervals. I have

My Perfect Year In School

I will always will remember when I was 14 years old and I was in High School, freshman year, we
often got off earlier than what hour schedule show. What we usually did when that happened was
going to the houses of the school mates, go and play soccer in the courts, go to the movies without
the permission of our parents.
When we went to a house of a school mate we usually buy a lot of food, like fry food, play music,
video games, our favorite video game was soccer, if we didn't have electricity we used to play
dominoes like the old times. We hate when we didn't have electricity it was one day with electricity
and one day without electricity typically from my country. I think that we were already accustomed
to the day to day of our country, something crazy.
When we could spend some money we used to go to the movies, we always watch horror movies to
make fun of our faces. The movie theater was one hour from our school. We usually take taxis,
usually four taxis. When we arrived to the movie theater everybody will start yelling each other and

Being comfortable is another big factor for me in determining whether watching a movie at home or

in a certain way only allowing you to sit in a position in which the chair is made. Comfort ability at
home is another story. When watching a movie at home, you have the choice of sitting on the floor,
couch, and soft chairs or lay down.
When one goes to watch a movie at the theater, they have to plan which theater to go too, the cost of
the movie, and visiting the concession stand, which is over–rated and over–priced, but I do love

ordinary popcorn. He also boasts that his popcorn has fewer hard, unpopped kernels than

The only popcorn he could find, besides some stale bagged corn in supermarkets, was caramel corn
which wasn't very popular. Wallbanger believes there is a great opportunity in Great Britain as a

watchers. He wants to explore the possibility of expanding into Great Britain. At the moment, he is
thinking about exporting his franchise gourmet–shop operation and licensing stores to sell his brand
of popcorn. Although he is open to suggestions of other possibilities, he is sure, as he told his board
of directors, that "Harvey Wallbanger Popcorn will have a major investment in Great Britain within

consisted of soft reds, blues, and yellows. The screen was framed by four, giant pillars 1.4 m wide
and 6 m high, their surfaces painted and decorated with papyrus plants and topped by a pair of large,
receding lintels (Ames & Wagner 2009, p 125). In 1924, Art and Archaeology stated Grauman's
Egyptian "is not made up of grotesque statues, sphinxes, pyramids, and meaningless signs in lieu of
hieroglyphics, but is a replica of real Egyptian art and architecture" (Handy, 2008). Concrete, plaster
and stone blocks were used to save costs and looked similar to those used in Ancient Egyptian
architecture (Ames & Wagner 2009, p 125). The entire theatre 's decor consisted of motifs such as
hieroglyphs, animal–headed gods, pharaohs, jackals, winged scarabs, bas–relief sphinx heads
(Handy, 2008). "And, looming majestically above it all in the centre of the ceiling and over the

Empire Popcorn 's Annual Movie Review
Empire Popcorn's Monthly Movie Review
Popcorn is without a doubt the most popular snack of choice when it comes to watching a movie so
who better to review the movies you'll be watching than the makers of your favourite popcorn?
Whether you plan on chowing down on freshly popped popcorn from your own kitchen on a cool
October evening or simply want the ease of gourmet flavoured popcorn delivered straight to your
door for your family fun night in front of the goggle–box, the choice is yours. Here at Empire we
won't just deliver to you the highest quality popcorn kernels and the best tasting gourmet popcorn
made in the UK, we'll also deliver a great movie review too that'll hopefully make your movie night
choice a little easier. Today at Empire Popcorn Company we'll be taking a look at Marvel Comic's
latest release, Ant Man. On top of telling you about the latest cinema offering, we'll be giving you
the best popcorn flavour to compliment our movie of choice.
Grab that bowl of popcorn and prepare for some lighthearted action
When it comes to Marvel Cinema, it can be an awfully daunting place especially with the likes of
Iron Man, Spider Man and the Avengers to contend with. It can also be a humourous place full of
whimsy and lightheartedness and these are two qualities that come into play with Ant Man which
we'd consider a real modest yet utterly enjoyable addition to the expanding world of the Marvel
family. While some grieved over the loss of the stylish and inventive

Elementary Hosts Popcorn At School
Every other Friday, Cascades Elementary hosts Popcorn Friday in their cafeteria. Volunteers come
and help make, bag, and distribute the salty snack to the classrooms. The line goes popcorn
machine, empty bags, bag folders and tape placers, finished bags, and classroom totes. However, to
make the line flow easily, the line might go; empty bags, popcorn machine, bag folders, tapers,
finished bags in lines of five, and the classroom totes that are brought up from the classroom. This
suggested lineup requires a volunteer to open bags and place them so the popcorn machine volunteer
is able to reach the paper bags, and possibly a couple more volunteers to ensure the supplies needed
never runs out and the flow is maintained. Unfortunately, many parents with nothing to do on
Fridays do not come to help.
On Popcorn Day, the volunteers meet at Cascades Elementary at eight in the morning in the
cafeteria after dropping their children off at school. One volunteer begins to heat up the popcorn
maker and make popcorn while a second volunteer sets out bags and a third sets out strips of tape
along the side of the table. After classes begin, the teacher selects two students to take the class
mesh tote and the popcorn money for the class to the cafeteria where the volunteers make the
popcorn. Once the students hand one of the volunteers the class tote and popcorn money, the
students are able to go back to class. The average popcorn bags requested by each classroom is
about 30 bags. The

The Importance Of Love In My Life
When I was growing up I was always told to treat others with kindness and respect, no matter who
they were or how old they were. These are things that I have carried along with me throughout my
life so far. Over the years I have gained some new characteristics about me and lost some, that were
good and bad.
The things that I care most about in life is love for my friends, family and dog. They have allowed
me to be myself and have always tried to get me to remain as positive as I possibly can. My family
has been there for me throughout my entire life. They taught me the difference between right and
wrong. Being a big part of my life, they will always have a special place in my head and heart. As
for friends, I have developed new ones over the years, and lost some, but they have taught me things
about myself, that I did not know. For example, they have allowed me to step out of my comfort
zone, and try new things. I care about them, they play a very important role in my life, because they
have allowed me to realize who I am. The final thing that matters a lot to me in my life is my dog,
Wyatt. He has been apart of my life since I was very little. My dog never fails to make me smile,
and makes my days much better
Being a teenager, I also have many fears, stresses and things that weigh me down. These things
consist of spiders, asking for help and disappointing my family. The fear of spiders has been with
me since I was a toddler. The way they crawl around has never

Number Of Basketball Players In Research

  • 1. Number Of Basketball Players In Research Division of Basketball Players Children develop bad habits at a young age and continue these bad habits until they are corrected. Sometimes these things aren't corrected until its almost too late. Habits can be picked up from parents, grandparents, coaches, and peers. I know that the longer I am around someone the more I act like that person. In any sport you will have many coaches and you will learn something you didn't know with every coach you have. But some things aren't developed from others, some players are born with these characters and help them become the type of player they are. 1. The Dramatic Player: The dramatic player overreacts about everything to draw attention to their self so they can be the center of attention. For example, on my basketball team Susie is constantly getting hurt. One day at practice she gently fell to the ground and instantly started acting like she had fallen from a 10 story building. As a teammate of Susie I have learned that it is easier to give her the attention as soon as she starts acting out. Another type of player is one that makes everything said to them a big deal. Some players on the team cannot take criticism, or being told what to do. Susie is this type of player also, and will turn a simple "please look for me on the block" to "throw me the darn ball next ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ... The Excuse maker: The excuse maker constantly has a rhyme or reason to why they did not do something or to why they did do something. For example, Lilly on my basketball team will blame her man scoring on someone else when clearly they scored because she wasn't playing any defense. The most common excuse used in basketball is "that wasn't my man" when in reality nine times out of ten it is the excuse makers man. These types of players would rather the team suffer than put forth the effort to do what is asked of them. Like people say "one bad apple will ruin the whole bunch", I wouldn't say the excuse maker ruins the whole team but they do make it hard to ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...

I don't know why Mrs. Sorun didn't mention anything about it, but you two, in my eyes, are a perfect match for one another." And she's back to normal ladies and gentlemen. I don't know whether to be happy, sad or annoyed. "Come on so we can get this over with," I grunted, making my way over towards the ticket booth. I'm not trying to come off as a spoiled brat or anything, but how should we split the bill?" she ambitiously asked, skipping besides me. "Should we pay for our things separately or..." Kind of surprising she's one of those rare breed of girls who believes a couple should split the bill. I was fine paying for the whole thing, but whatever. Though I wonder... "What are you talking about? You're paying." She stumbled a bit before catching herself. I could tell by her facial expression she was thrown off by what I just said. "Pardon me?" "You're paying for this date," I repeated, hoping she wouldn't fall for my easily avoidable trap. "But since this is fake, doesn't it seems reasonable to..." "You're the one who invited me on this stupid movie date, right? So, it's only make sense for you to pay for the both of us." "I didn't think about it in that sense." I can't believe she was seriously pondering over this. "I guess it does make sense to some degree." Don't fall for it dummy!

How do you think we learned about gravity? A mistake was made with an apple falling from a tree which helped us to open our eyes and give us the great idea to learn more about gravity. Mistakes are the key to new discoveries, because it opens your eyes to new possibilities and it can help you to do great deeds. It has been argued that, mistakes are not the key to making new discoveries, because of the problems it can cause.

I know this because in the text it said, " Percy Spencer never set out to help cook your dinner in only 5 minutes. All he did was carry a bar of chocolate from his pocket onto the factory floor. What he discovered that day was more than how to get chocolate stains out of your clothes. He discovered a completely new way to cook" ("How a Melted Bar of Chocolate Changed our Kitchens") . Based on this evidence, Percy's eyes were opened to a whole to new way to cook food all because of an accident, of taking chocolate in his warm pocket onto a factory floor. According to Martin Farquhar Tupper, a 19th Century English writer "Error is a hard plant; it flourisheth in every soul" ("A series of Quotations about Error and Discovery").

Most may think of the delicious, perfectly cooked, buttered popcorn, and huge movie screen with surround sound. While others may think of the obnoxiously loud atmosphere and inconvenient show times. Everyone has their opinion on which movie viewing option they think is better; the movie theater, or home. When it "boils down" to the facts, it is not hard to see why staying at home is the prefered movie–watching experience over the the movie theater experience, the reasons why this may be so is the cost, the inconvenience of show times, and viewing options The Cost The first point to consider is the cost.

Often, movie theater showtimes seem to be impossible to work around or plan for. This can especially be the case for people who work a job during the day. For example, if a woman wanted to go see a movie with her friend after work, the planning around the movie theater showtimes becomes very tedious quickly. If the woman gets off at five, then that automatically knocks out the 5:00 movie viewing time. The next available show time isn't until 7:30, but she has work the next day and she needs to get home at a decent hour in the day. Therefore she has to cancel her plans with her friend solely due to the fact that the movie theater only had certain viewing times that weren't catering to her schedule. On the contrary, show times at home are a "24–7" deal. Anytime a person feels like watching a movie at home is the perfect time. We are able to watch virtually any movie at any time with the click of a remote button or the tap of an app on our smart phones. Therefore, making the home movie viewing experience the ultimate choice because of the convenient "24–7" showtimes. The Viewing Options The last point to consider is the viewing options. According to Pew Research Center (2006) 58% of people don't go out to the movie theater more often is due to the fact that there are too few good movies to see( pg 3.) And it's not hard to see ...

It starts off nice and slowly before heading full steam ahead into a firestorm of kernels as they almost magically transform into clouds of crunchy white goodness. The next thing you'll no doubt notice is the incredible smell that wafts through the room and eventually the entire house, slowly pulling you in as it teases your nose. You'll feel weak as the popcorn tantalises your taste buds. By the time your teeth crunch down on the first bite, you're totally and utterly hooked. Popcorn happens to be one of the most popular snacks and described by some as a completely irresistible treat. As they say, the proof is ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ... His recipe included the use of a grill, a half–pint glass of popcorn and a frying pan that had been rubbed with lard or butter. He advised holding the pan over the fire whilst constantly stirring or shaking the corn and within a few minutes, the popcorn should have turned inside out to reveal the delicious white, fluffy centre. He also mentioned the addition of salt or sugar whilst it was still hot for added flavour. The issue with this particular method however seemed to be with the lard or butter. The butter would usually begin to burn before the pan reached a hot enough temperature and the lard would create popcorn that was covered in slime–like grease. It wasn't until the latter portion of the 19th century that a more efficient way of popping popcorn was discovered. What were deemed to be "poppers" were actually boxes made of tight wire gauze and had long handles attached. They were designed to be held over an open flame. The design of poppers offered a number of benefits including the containment of popped kernels whilst also keeping any hands away from the heat source. Over the years, the popper became hugely popular and as a result a number of improvements were made to make it bigger and better than ever. Due to the improvements, popcorn became even more accessible to the masses of people wanting to get their hands on ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...

Stone Problem Nobody likes to get to the end of their popcorn bowl only to have most of the popcorn not popped. It is very frustrating to purchase popcorn and end up with a bowl of un–popped kernels. Well, this experiment is to determine which brand of popcorn yields the least amount of un–popped kernels? Reason The reason I decided on doing this project is because the materials required are inexpensive and easily available at most grocery or dollar stores. Through this experiment, I can educate consumers on which brand pops up the most corn, therefore saving them money. Hypothesis There are many differing opinions on which popcorn has the least amount of un–popped kernels. Some think ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ... Procedures The purpose of this experiment was to test multiple brands of popcorn under the same setting in order to conclude which one statistically popped the most kernels. I tested the butter flavor of Orville Redenbacher, Wal–mart's Great Value brand, and Pop Weavers. The different bags of popcorn were popped in the same microwave for the same amount of time, 3 minutes and 15 seconds. Then, the popped corn was counted, as well as the un–popped kernels, in order to determine a ratio, and then I recorded the results in the data table. I repeated these steps two more times for a total of 3 trails for each brand. Then I compared the ratios of all the bags to determine which brand yielded the most popped corn. The statistical technique used to evaluate the data was to find a ratio between the number of kernels in the bottom of the bowl and the number of popped kernels. To find this, I divided the number of the actual popped corns by the total number of kernels left in the bottom of the bowl. The ratios and percent were then compared. Once all my results were in the data table, I averaged the 3 trials for each brand of popcorn.

The smell of butter is in the air as you recline your seat back till you are nearly vertical with the floor. Then a bright light shines in front of you, so massive it is impossible to miss. It is finally starting. The movie is finally starting. There is a significant reason why people occasionally go to the movie theatre to watch a movie rather than just watch the movie at home. Going to the theatre means tons of popcorn, extra comfy seats, a dark and loud room, and a giant screen. Going to the movies is a whole experience in itself. Have you ever had a bad experience at the movie theatre though? One where your shoes begin to squeak because you step in someone's spilt slushy or as you sit in your chair you hear the crunch of the previous person's left over popcorn underneath you. Not only does this situation make you frustrated and irritated, it also distracts you from the movie you went to the theatre to see. If you have a bad time at the movie theatre, you may not even remember the movie you went to see because you are distracted by all the things around you. In this case, going to the movie theatre actually takes away from the movie itself. Going to the movie theatre should let you become totally engrossed in the movie and even enhance the movie itself.

This chapter has much emotion unlike the rest of the book, which I view as a poor point of the author as although it was an international tragedy, the book itself should be focused upon the economics and I feel the author spends too long speaking about the tragedy. The idea of the theory was good though as it is current news that almost everyone knows and cares about – they also all have an emotional bias and opinion on it. McKenzie explains the economics later on in the chapter very well although his own personal opinion comes through too much. After his emotional introduction to the chapter, there are too many numbers and not enough explanation, which is different to the remainder of the books as generally he gets the balance right between the two. The final chapter that I am going to analyse is 'why so many prices end with 9' this chapter is clear cut and extremely interesting I found. The psychology behind the marketing choice is fascinating and he uses economics in a daily surrounding which intrigues me more and I'm sure many others that read the book. McKenzie had a very balanced and unbiased view in this chapter, although he does occasionally assume that the average person is very simple and not intelligent in the least.

For quite some time, I had been looking for an excuse to visit a new church. I did not feel like I was getting enough substance, or the "meat and potatoes" and I was hungry for more. I had always thought about visiting other but I could never get myself to walk through the doors. In the eyes of the philosopher Plato, I was sitting complacently in "the cave." But that was when my mom suggested visiting a portable church, inside a local movie theater to be specific. The church I had grown up in was large and extremely conservative. I had grown accustomed to the rows of wooden pews that creaked every time a person shifted their position, and the beautiful stain windows that sparkled when the light hit them at the right angle. The thought of stepping inside a worldly building that smelled like buttered popcorn and had sticky floors to worship was not only an uncomfortable thought but also it felt disgraceful. Our church had always taught us to wear our finest clothes out of respect for entering God's home and all I could picture in my head of the people I had never met from the portable church included images of t–shirts, shorts, flip flops and jumbo tubs of popcorn and extra large Diet Colas.

Keep in mind that you must enter the amount of time on your microwave that you chose from your time testing trial. Do not use the popcorn button that is standard on most microwaves. It is important to test the time with one frozen and one shelf stored popcorn package. This will allow us to record the exact time needed to perform our test on the remaining bags of popcorn. 7. Now perform two trials of test with one bag of frozen popcorn kernels and one bag of room temperature popcorn. It is important to record the data off of each trial separately. 8. When finished recording your numbers from the two trail experiments take the average of each trial and compare the final results. Reasoning of this design. The brand of popcorn testing has proven to be inconsistent. Each major brand of popcorn claims to have the highest amount of popped kernels. We chose this method of experiment because we can control the variables of the experiment. By controlling the temperature we can determine which method will yield the most amount of popcorn instead of relying on which brand claims to have the most yield of popcorn or studies on brands. This experiment can be used on all brands as long as the brand name stays the same.

The LOOK Cinema compared to the AMC are not quite similar, both cinemas have something slightly different from one another. The AMC only gives you two theaters to pick from, the normal theater, and dine in. At the LOOK Cinema, they give you three options the loft, evolution, and look dine–in. Each theater varies in price, even though the LOOK Cinema is pricier the experience is better. If you choose the loft, only people who are twenty–one and older can get in.

Cracker Jack Case Analysis Case Recap The primary reason for the Borden Foods to divert itself from snacks is to emphasis its efforts and resources in the growth of their whole–wheat meal segments. Because of this valuation they had and a growth plan they had they decided to announce sale of Cracker Jack in 1997. The management team of Broaden also recognized that with the increase in competition they have not been able to successfully grow the sales figure in past five years. Also because the Cracker Jack brand has various packaging options and has been maintaining a huge product line of 32 Stock–Keeping Units (SKUs).

Evaluation of Alternative Cracker Jacks sales will represent a tiny part of the Frito–Lay's business currently, however the chances are high to get the numbers high from this division if proper decisions are made. Frito–Lay is the leader in the US market concerning market share and sales volume. So they can use their advertising and marketing experience to uplift CJ. CJ should be marketed as a stackable treat which is healthy as of natural ingredients like popcorn. Marketing researchers should focus on the small children as the target market as well. By launching the different sizes and convenient packages to the customers so that they can grab it and go rather than having a box. The CJ should be made available to as many stores as possible by utilizing the same direct store delivery channels. A careful analysis has to be done to change any features like gifts in each bag and the flavor of the CJ, because that is the major point of CJ and most of the customers are attracted because of that particular features. Recommendation In my opinion the Borden Foods will sell the company for above 30 million dollars based on the assets it has and the goodwill for the year ending 1996. However the Frito–Lay should only pay around 25 million dollars for acquisitions of the company. ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...

I loved going to the theaters as a kid because the entire experience was always so exciting, especially since it was the first thing my mother let me do out on my own. Going to the movies had always been a blessing but as I have grown I have made an effort to go less often. While the experience is still the same I just notice just how bad the overall experience can be as well. Honestly, the best part of watching a movie in theaters is the movie theater experience; for example the seats, the popcorn, the large screen, the sound system, the people, and the new releases. It is not just you in your room watching a movie, it is you reacting to the film and to the people around you around you as well, all the while getting all these over the top elements as well. Movie going takes a common experience and amplifies it so it feels like you're getting something even greater. Plus, my favorite part for any film has always been the trailers; the exciting bits and pieces of coming films thrown together to entice future visits. With fast paced action and cliffhanging details that are thrown in the 2–3 minute time frame, I am left wanting to come back and see that movie when it comes out. It is how they reel me in and keep me coming back in regular intervals. I have also gotten really into staying for the credits as well ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...

The five years that I had spent working and growing through a movie theater supplied me with many memories, an opportunity to grow as a professional and has equipped me with lifelong friends. Some of my most favorite memories were constructed at the little movie theater in Wooster, OH. One of the major perks to working at a movie theater, is the fact that I was able to get into any movie I wanted to at any time. I was also able to take friends to the movies for free which made me pretty popular with everyone! My fondest memory of working at the movie theater was watching movies before they were to come out. It seemed every Thursday night I would be at the movie theater after 12:00AM, sitting down with my friends, devouring freshly popped popcorn, guzzling on some Cherry Coke, and eating as much delicious candy as possible. As I progressed through the company, this became a reoccurring theme throughout the five years I spent there. When I finally became an assistant manager, I was in charge of building movies.

Being comfortable is another big factor for me in determining whether watching a movie at home or at a movie theater? At the theater, comfort ability is not an option. All chairs in the theater are made in a certain way only allowing you to sit in a position in which the chair is made. Comfort ability at home is another story. When watching a movie at home, you have the choice of sitting on the floor, couch, and soft chairs or lay down. When one goes to watch a movie at the theater, they have to plan which theater to go too, the cost of the movie, and visiting the concession stand, which is over–rated and over–priced, but I do love some theater pop–corn.

He wants to explore the possibility of expanding into Great Britain. At the moment, he is thinking about exporting his franchise gourmet–shop operation and licensing stores to sell his brand of popcorn.

However, to make the line flow easily, the line might go; empty bags, popcorn machine, bag folders, tapers, finished bags in lines of five, and the classroom totes that are brought up from the classroom. This suggested lineup requires a volunteer to open bags and place them so the popcorn machine volunteer is able to reach the paper bags, and possibly a couple more volunteers to ensure the supplies needed never runs out and the flow is maintained. Unfortunately, many parents with nothing to do on Fridays do not come to help.
