And yes statistically Greg isn't that great on indoors, and this season he wasn't even playing indoors at all :oTim can play on carpet... but this season wasn't exactly the best for him... so yeah... Lleyton can defeat both of them.. and Wayne has a chance against Greg... I'm not so sure about Tim though :o

Well I've read enough articles about the whole clay thing for me to understand and agree with their decision :o On a hardcourt, grass or even indoors, Tim could beat Lleyton ( if Lleyton had a bad day and Tim had a great day :o ) and Greg is very powerful and could easily overpower Lleyton :mad: And then thinking further than that, if something were to happen and Lleyton couldn't play well the back-ups would have a chance against Tim and Greg on clay where as on other surfaces, Australia wouldn't stand a chance :o

TIM A GREAT DAY AGAINST LLEYTON! Don't make me laugh :p
Greg yes... I do see that... but TIM? C'mon mate! The closest their matches ever get is on grass... and indoor carpet... lleyton can smack his arse right down!

My mom used to like the Mets because she knew someone who played for them. But thanks to my and my Braves obsession she hates them now, too. She's pissed that Tommy is going to play for them, especially because we get almost ever Braves game on TV and she thinks Tommy is hot. She won't be able to see much of him, now.

Emerson and Thoreau

Throughout many of his writings and actions, Henry David Thoreau followed the teachings of Ralph Waldo Emerson. This pattern holds true for Emerson’s “Self-Reliance” and Thoreau’s “Civil Disobedience” and “Walden.” In these works it is clear that Thoreau respects and follows the many teachings of Emerson. This paper will examine where Thoreau obviously follows the example of his mentor, Emerson, in the issues of self-reliance, self-sufficiency, and society.

Emerson’s essay “Self-Reliance” naturally deals mainly with the issue of self-reliance. Emerson says that “imitation is suicide” and it is best to rely on your own opinions and sense (Emerson 867). He states that no man should follow the customs of others because the only law that should be sacred to you is your own nature. In Emerson’s opinion, wise people do not go bounding around the planet looking at the examples that other people in other societies have put forth, rather these men stay at home and discover wisdom within themselves (Emerson 880). Emerson believes that you must do what you believe is right, not what other people expect of you.

Thoreau’s “Civil Disobedience” also speaks about self-reliance, more specifically how it relates to the government. He states that people should not do something just because it is a law. Instead, it is your duty to rebel against a law that you feel is unjust (Thoreau 1325). You should never support the government when their policies go against your morals, even if it means imprisonment. Thoreau himself was imprisoned because he refused to pay taxes. He did not want to support a government that was fighting a war that he was morally opposed to (Thoreau 1330). A person must rely on their own morals and feelings and not tolerate what they believe to be wrongs of society. He says that a person is not in the world to make it a better place, but merely to live in it (Thoreau 1327). Therefore, you must live within yourself and not be concerned with the workings of society and other men. Lastly, Thoreau says that he dreams of a day when men can live free of a government, relying on their own sense to govern them (Thoreau 1338).

Emerson also believes that to be self-reliant you must be self-sufficient (Emerson 876). If you cannot support yourself and live within yourself then there is no way that you can rely solely on yourself. He gives the example of people praying for material wealth. Praying, he says, is asking for something that you don’t need. To be a good person you must be one with God, and you cannot be one with someone from whom you beg for things (Emerson 878-9). Living without excess is the only way to not be a slave to your property. If you live a humble and minimalist life you are free to examine yourself more than if you must devote your time to the pursuit of material wealth.

Following the above philosophy is where Thoreau excelled, especially in his essay “Walden.” At Walden Pond, Thoreau lives on his own for over two years. He builds his own house, grows his own food, and discovers his own nature (Thoreau 1371). Thoreau revels in living totally independent of society. He explains that he is the monarch of all he surveys and states that it is a great pleasure to be able to do what he wants when he wants (Thoreau 1384). He found out that nature can provide almost everything that he needs and “civilized society” is not necessary. Through exploring the virtues of simple living he gains his own wisdom without relying on the knowledge of others (Thoreau 1389).

The last major issue that Emerson discussed is his view on society. He declares that “society everywhere is in conspiracy against the manhood of every one of its members” (Emerson 868). He says that society judges men by what they have and not by who they are. Society never benefits man because when it advances in one area, it loses something in another. Like when man invents the buggy he loses the ability to walk as far (Emerson 881). A virtuous man, says Emerson, knows that he must follow his own beliefs rather than give in to the whims of society. Emerson contends “nothing can bring you peace but yourself” (Emerson 883).

Thoreau speaks of society as the government, which basically follows the will of the majority. He says that the fact that the government answers to the majority and not necessarily to the most virtuous makes it inherently unjust (Thoreau 1323-4). He declares, “government is best which governs least” (Thoreau 1322). The issue basically returns to that of self-reliance. Thoreau believes that men are at their best when left to their own devices, and society, or government, interferes with that ability. He also states that many advances, such as freedom and growth, that the majority of people attribute to the government really comes from the character of the American people (Thoreau 1323). He says that even if the government of the country were different, people would still be successful because of that underlying character. Again, Thoreau believes you may only be successful if you follow your own feelings and morals.

Thoreau obviously follows the teachings of Emerson throughout his writings and his practices. While Emerson mainly was an ideas person, Thoreau set forth to emulate these ideas to the best of his ability. Thoreau made great strides to free himself of societal control and explore his own morals and beliefs. Even facing imprisonment, Thoreau held firm to his virtues. Both Emerson and Thoreau stressed that you must rely on yourself and not on the teachings of others to discover true wisdom. While society may be powerful, you can only become a slave to it if you let yourself. They believe that as long as you follow your personal beliefs, you will be a successful and just person.

Nuclear Magnetic Resonance

Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) imaging exhibits a wide variety of uses in the world of science, which range from as analyzing the structure of single molecules to analyzing the structure of the brain. NMR is used for identification of DNA flaws, the function of base pairs and protein loops. Through the study of the history of NMR and how it functions, it was discovered how NMR is used in science.

The first NMR experiments were developed in 1946 by Felix Block and Edward Purcell. The two scientists designed an apparatus that would detect transition between nuclear magnetic energy levels using radiofrequency methods. The two witnessed that when a nuclei is exposed to a magnetic field it would re-emit this energy when it changed back to its original state. This discovery has lead to the creation of NMR. This gave the two scientists the noble prize, which they won in 1952 for “their development of new methods for nuclear magnetic precision measurements and discoveries in connection therewith”. (reference)

NMR is used when a sample is brought in to a magnetic field where it is hit by radio waves, which then send messages about the sample’s molecular structure to the computer. The nucleus always spins and the positively charged spins create magnetic moment. The magnetic moment is arranged by the magnetic field which determines how they are aligned, and since the spins of the nucleus is not flat it creates a torque which makes the magnetic moment wobble. Then the radio waves hit the nuclei, resulting in the change of direction or flipping of the torque. Different atoms are hit with different radio wave frequencies to determine how each atom in the molecule interacts with other atoms in the molecule. This is determined by a chemical shift (which determines the position of peaks in the graph), which allows the comparison done with a graph.
This comparison may occur between an H1 (hydrogen and it’s atomic mass of 1) and a tetramethylsilane. Tetramethylsilane has the same number of protons as electrons and thus it will appear as a single line on the spectrometer. The hydrogen will appear with peaks to show its difference in protons or electrons. Only nuclei with a magnetic moment (with odd atomic mass) can undergo NMR. (i.e. H1, C13, N15, etc.).

The usage of NMR is mainly focused on the study of DNA base pairs and protein loops. This study provides such knowledge as: whether a person is prone to a certain disease, the function of their brain, the function of their muscles, etc. A study ran by Dr. Robert Balaban on the variation of sodium, phosphorus, and nitrogen levels of cardiac muscles under different physical and psychological conditions has provided knowledge on various concentrations of nuclei in various body tissues. It was determined that a lot of research on patient’s response to chemotherapy and radio therapy was NMR based. Prior to the development Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), NMR studied the development of tumors and an individual’s chance of having cancer. Scientifically NMR was used for the development of chemical structures, analyzing geological data and molecular properties. With the help of NMR such complicated molecules as the Buckminsterfullerene were developed. Buckminsterfullerene is a molecule that is made purely out of carbons, containing 60 carbon atoms. Continuous NMR research such as the one being run in K.U. Leuven provided people with growing knowledge on NMR’s uses in medical fields. Current studies have been focused on how nuclei such as: hydrogen, carbon, fluorine and sodium, act in the kinetics of the heart, skeletal muscle, and isolated cells. Other research is being done to focus on the metabolic path ways of the liver.

In conclusion it was discovered that NMR has had such significant impact on the scientific world. It has allowed humans to understand the structure of molecules and their function in human bodies. The first experiments done by Felix Block and Edward Purcell brought scientists to understand more and more about the structure of humans and their surroundings.

INDIAN WELLS, CALIFORNIA

March 10, 1999

K. Kucera def L. Hewitt
7-5, 6-3

Q. If that situation arises again, what would be your course of action?

LLEYTON HEWITT: I'd definitely try and I suppose make a high percentage of first serves (;)) when I had game points today. I think I gave him a look at a lot of second serves when I had game points.

Q. Has Darren said anything to you yet?

LLEYTON HEWITT: No.

Q. Do you think the experience factor was important today? He's a pretty slick player.

LLEYTON HEWITT: Yeah, I suppose it had a little bit to do. I don't think a hell of a lot, though.

1999 DAVIS CUP, FINALS

AUSTRALIA vs. FRANCE

PARIS, FRANCE

Q. Lleyton, this is your first year in Davis Cup. How different is the feeling being in the final and can you tell about how excited, how motivated you are?

LLEYTON HEWITT: Well, it's an unbelievable feeling for me. A lot of the players go through their careers without playing in a Davis Cup final. For me, at the age of 18 to have this opportunity, in my third tie, when at the start of the year it looked like I was going to be struggling for a spot, you know, this is definitely the biggest moment in my career so far.

Oooh just rezlied, it seems as though France loses a lot of their finals at home :o

MIAMI, FLORIDA

March 28, 2000

Q. What's happened to your volume of fan mail in the last year?

LLEYTON HEWITT: Not that big. Obviously I get a fair bit of fan mail, stuff like that. You know, I'm sure it's not as big as Pat's or Mark's.

Q. How many proposals for marriage have you gotten?

LLEYTON HEWITT: I haven't had any of those.

(I'm sure that has changed now ;) )

Static
12-10-2002, 09:32 PM
Oh pfff Lleyton did get bageled before Marat in Paris :o
Pfff I remember someone saying that he never got bageled before :o

M. Norman def. L. Hewitt 6-3, 6-0

Q. Lleyton, as you said, you learned a lot from this week in Rome. Do you think it will be enough to claim a big role in the French Open? Do you think you still need to --

LLEYTON HEWITT: I've still got a lot to learn, I think, before I can win the French Open. You know, obviously I'm going in the -- just going to take it one match at a time again. But this year really at Roland Garros is going to be a learning experience for me. I'm probably going to be seeded now. It's going to be my first time seeded in a Grand Slam. You know, that's nice that I know that I'm not going to meet sort of your Agassi, Sampras and guys like that in the first round. But there's still a lot of smokies, sort of Moyas (:o He got that right) and Philippoussises that are outside the top 16. But you know, I wouldn't say that I'm one of the favorites for sure this year.

Q. Talking about Philippoussis, Hamburg's interesting?

LLEYTON HEWITT: I haven't seen it.

Q. No?

LLEYTON HEWITT: Do I play him first round?

Q. Yes.

LLEYTON HEWITT: That is interesting. (Laughter.) Obviously, we've played twice and it's 1-all. We haven't played on clay before, but, you know, it's -- well, it's a bit of a shocker. (Laughter.) I wasn't really expecting that. But obviously Flip is a great player and it's going to be a very hard match. There's no doubt about that. If he's on, he's very hard to beat.

;)

Fulfilling Fantasy: Emerson, Rinaldi, Drysdale Deliver Good Tennis, Good Time At Fantasy Camp

By Dan Weil (Tennis Week)
12/10/2002


“If he had a second brain, it would be lonely.” That was 12-time Grand Slam champion Roy Emerson’s assessment of the world’s No. 3 player Marat Safin.




The 66-year-old Emmo, who also goes by the nickname “Blue”, dispensed that and other witticisms at Tennis Champions, a fantasy camp attended by about 20 eager hackers at the Ritz-Carlton in Key Biscayne, Florida December 6-8th.

The hackers, myself included, had three days to hit with Emerson and fellow former pros Cliff Drysdale and Kathy Rinaldi. A good time was had by all, except for Drysdale, who was easily aced by hacker Mike Josephs, a Miami lawyer.

Safin wasn’t the only top pro to receive a ribbing from the gregarious Emerson. Asked about Switzerland’s phenom Roger Federer, Emerson, while acknowledging Fed Ex’s prodigious talent, said, “I’d like to see him bleed a little bit. He can’t seem to put points together.”

Emerson doesn’t see the current crop of young pros challenging top-ranked Lleyton Hewitt.

“He’s the best competitor,” Emmo said of his compatriot.


[In case anyone doubted.]

Do you really think so? I don't. We still wouldn't have had as much money or as many resources (at least that we could use) as the Yanks did. And of course we were severely disadvantaged in regards to population. They had a lot more soldiers than we did.

We could've certainly done with another Robert E. Lee or two, though.

Pfffff @ my college Government final. It was way too easy! 45 minutes to take an open book/open note, 25 question test. And STILL people didn't finish in time! :rolleyes:

But anyways. Economics next semester should be interesting, if rather depressing. :p I hope our professor is nice.

Tonight I have to research guitars, percussion, and vocals as they relate to country music. My college English final is going to be a compare/contrast essay on country, rock, and jazz music. It has to be written in 45 minutes tomorrow morning. I think I'll cheat and have my paper written before I walk into the room. :p

Yes, I do. The "King Cotton" thing was totally Davis' idea. By not exporting cotton to Europe, as Benjamin wanted to do, he kept the South from getting a lot of supplies it needed. While Europe didn't want to intervene, they had no problem trading military supplies to the South because they did sympathize with them.

Benjamin, who is sometimes said to be the most able Southern leader ever, also criticized Davis for trying to hold complete power over the army. If he hadn't removed Johnston in 1864 when he was defending Atlanta, the city would never have fallen, and Lincoln may have lost the Presidency and the war would have been over. Also, Davis bossed Lee around constantly, and I think that anyone would agree that Lee was the greatest military mind the United States has probably ever produced. Having anyone tell him what to do what a hinderence. Whereas Davis DID allow Braxton Bragg, one of the dumbest men to grace the earth, complete free reign over his forces, simply because they were buddies.

The South's lack of supplies really didn't factor much as is shown by their ability to beat a much larger and better supplied Union army. I just think that if they had a better leader who wouldn't boss Lee and Co. around from miles and miles away they probably would have had more success.

Anyway, you and I can learn from these mistakes... we won't fail. ;)

My Civil War final was SO hard! Everyone thought so. He gave us a three hour exam and made us do it in one hour. No one finished. He asked stuff on the exam that he never went over in class. It was impossible. I'm going to lose my 4.0 and I'm going to cry.

I have that huge stupid poster that I have to do for him this weekend, and the fact that exam was totally unfair really makes my desire to actually give a shit even less. I should also study for some of my other exams. Meh. I'm going to go take a long nap in a minute.

Finally got my passport renewed... pah.... dealing with government departments is such a hassle.. my dad and I got to the passport office at 7 am to line up before the place opens and there were already > 40 people in front of us. :rolleyes:

Anyway, I don't really have anything else to do till I return to Australia (12 more days and counting....) so I bought a 1000 piece jigsaw puzzle! :D I haven't done one in ages! :D
