As a major ski resort, Jiminy Peak resort has to consume a lot of electricity power for snowmaking every year. The main question now is how to reduce the high cost of electricity. Among the many solutions, the wind turbine project reduces electricity costs, while also taking into account environmental issues. This is because the wind is a renewable green energy. The wind turbine project is through the installation of wind turbine to provide electrical energy and save electricity costs. Winter is not only the most productive season for tourists, but also the season with the largest amount of wind in a year. Therefore, even if there is a substantial increase in power demand in winter

sunlight is limited at certain times (e.g. morning and night). Predicting overcast days can be difficult and this is why solar power is not our first choice when it comes to meeting the base load energy demand.
Wind power is another renewable energy source that provides a great alternative. Being here in Georgia this type of energy source isn’t ideal. Lack of windy valleys and open plains is a environment that simply doesn’t exist here. The power available from the wind is a function of the cube of the wind speed, so as wind speed increases, power output increases dramatically up to the maximum output for the particular turbine. Cons of using this source is the cost of maintain the wind

Formation of Sedimentary Rocks
Sedimentary rock is rock formed from the bits of rock or sediments that are deposited and compressed. When wind, water, or ice erodes the surface of a mountain or rock it slowly chips away at the surface. Those bits of rock or sediments that have been chipped away are blown by the wind or floated down the river by a current. The sediments being transported are knocked around so much that by the time they reach their destination all those tiny grains are round. Eventually the sediments are deposited in a river bed or valley where the current or wind can’t push it around anymore. When the sediments are deposited by a river a sedimentary rock will begin to

GREEN TECHNOLOGY 2
What is Green Technology? Green technology is a relatively recent branch of research into making systems and products cleaner. The aim is to reduce the amount of Carbon Monoxide released by the user of the new technology. There are three types of Green Technology the most important ones are: Energy, Building and Purchasing. Green Energy is made of wind, tide and solar. Green Building is the process of building houses and offices that are efficient. Purchasing green just like it sounds.

Albert Einstein once said: “The release of atomic energy has not created a new problem. It has merely made more urgent the necessity of solving an existing one.” What does everybody know about nuclear energy? When most of you think of the word nuclear you might think of bombs. We talk about clean energy and most of you think of water or wind power, but there are some big drawbacks to those and through this I would like to educate you about another source.

Nuclear power is when you harness the power of radioactive metals decaying (that is where they constantly keep losing electrons). The power is then used to heat

Many people are debating how to best meet energy needs in the United States. Some argue that the country must decrease its dependence on oil and invest in alternative sources of energy, such as wind and solar power. Others argue that changing to new power sources is unnecessary and expensive. They state that the United States should search for oil in Alaska, the Gulf Coast, and other areas within the country that are currently not being explored.
I believe that the United States should invest money into alternate fueling sources. Off shore drilling at this point is environmentally unsafe. Our environment is changing due to global warming, and off shore drilling makes this worse. I feel

, and electricity. They are all inexpensive but they are nonrenewable resources, meaning, they take millions of years to develop under extreme conditions. They can’t be recycled into the energy mix. (Fossil Fuels, 2012)
Two different alternatives to retrieve energy other than fossil fuels would be to use solar/wind energy and geothermal energy. With fossil fuels diminishing or polluting the air, there are other natural resources that can be used and are just as beneficial and environmental friendly. With these renewable energy sources becoming more affordable, it is a considerable change but the disadvantages must be outweighed heavily in order to make it an adaptable change for everyone

The Wright brothers were very intelligent, had a mechanical aptitude, and were very religious when it came to studying the flight machines. As I stated above, they kept track of Lilienthal’s records of flight and his model’s. Their main source was Octave Chanute, who kept them updated with information in the aviation industry. After that they built their own wind tunnel and used new data of different wing shapes and fixed the errors of the past innovators. They then built the glider as the tool to climb or descend, which led them to build a power plant of 12-HP engine, and perfected the propeller.

think the trumpets represent his deafness but rather a small victory as he learns to work with his deafness and perhaps discovers a new way to “hear” music. The third movement is faster paced than the second and much happier. An intricate string section is followed by very soft decrescendo-- almost silence. A wind and strings section then takes over which I believe represents some sort of navigation towards the beauty of his newfound talent. The third movement ends very softly, almost sad, as he finally lets go of his hearing once and for all. The third movement basically represents the acceptance of his deafness. Lastly, the fourth movement features a very loud trumpet section, which I believe represents his final triumph; he has overcome his deafness and continues to write beautiful music. I really liked the entire piece because it has been the most expressive listening example we have heard in class. I felt like I could almost see Beethoven’s journey in my mind. Beethoven is truly a virtuoso composer.

When I awoke the morning of June 30th, 2010, I had no idea it would be a day that would change my life forever. I thought it was just a normal start to a typical Wednesday. The smell of summer was in the air and the dew was still sparkling on the individual blades of grass. The other true sign that summer had arrived was my bike. Since I started riding ten years ago, motorcycles have been more than a means of transportation. They are a source of fun, entertainment, and happiness. Nothing is more liberating than feeling the wind passing over my body as I cruise down an open highway. On this morning, like many other summer mornings, I jumped on my brand new, baby blue
