Development Of The Submarine
Number of words: 1443 - Number of pages: 6
To understand the need for the development of nuclear missile submarines,
there is a need to examine the political climate of the world in the era after
World War II. The realignment of the superpowers after the war resulted in a
unique situation. The two major naval powers of the day, Great Britain and the
United States, were now allied against the greatest land power in history in the
Soviet Union. In the period from 1955 to 1965, the advantage was heavily in
favor of the U.S. As the United States had developed the atomic and hydrogen
Advancement Of Technology And Science And Its Influence On Science Fiction Novels

.... a science fi ction story as an obvious vehicle, the author knows that it is
always present in the mind of the reader. It is this plausablilty of what
conventionally should not be acceptable that has led to science fiction's
increasing popularity over the years. As James explains, "much sf is concerned

other worlds, the plot of many a science fiction novel, has to many become
inevitable. The successful series .....

.... time with the branch
of mathematics known as numerical analysis, which examines the accuracy and
precision of calculations.
As the use of computers expanded between the 1950s and the 1970s,
the focus of computer science broadened to include simplifying the use of
computers through programming languages—artificial languages used to
program computers, and operating systems—computer programs that provide a
useful interface between a computer and a user. During this time, computer
scientists were also experimenting with new applications and computer
The Production, Characteristics And Use Of Aluminium And Its
Number of words: 1590 - Number of pages: 6
.... of its alloys are highly resistant to most forms of corrosion. The metal's natural coating of aluminium oxide provides a highly effective barrier to the effects of air, temperature, moisture and chemical attack.
„h Aluminium is a superb conductor of electricity. This property allied with other intrinsic qualities has ensured the replacement of copper by aluminium in many situations.
„h Aluminium is non-magnetic and non-combustible, properties invaluable in advanced industries such as electronics or in offshore structures.
„h Aluminium is non-toxic and impe .....

the knowledge of several rules of animation, which animators around the world
follow. The first rule of animation is that an animator must hold the
understanding of the techniques used to produce single cells of animation.
Second rule, and one of the most important ones is that, the animator must have
great patience, so that his or her piece of artwork is not rushed, to prevent
the animation from looking choppy and not as smooth as it should look. Finally
what is required from an animator is "it takes commitment and effort to make the

communication such as letters and telephone calls, it has created a new method
of transmitting information in a more efficient way. E-mail saves time between
the interval of sending and receiving a message. Sending an e-mail message
halfway around the world can arrive at its destination within a minute or two.
In comparison, a letter can take from a few days to a couple of weeks, according
to the distance it travels. Furthermore, e-mail is inexpensive. The cost of
connection to the Internet is relatively cheaper than that of cable television.

.... In the same way that you would have to walk through the building, opening doors one at a time to find the briefcase, an ordinary computer has to make it way through long strings of 1’s and 0’s until it arrives at the answer. But what if instead of having to search by yourself, you could instantly create as many copies of yourself as there were rooms in the building all the copies could simultaneously peek in all the offices, and the one that finds the briefcase becomes the real you, the rest just disappear. – (David Freeman, discover )
