Transcript: Free Read PowerPoint Project Judith Rumelt, better known by her pen name Cassandra Clare, is an American author of young adult fiction. Main Characters Summary Prominent literary item Will Herondale-Will has dark hair and ocean blue eyes. Will is rude and cruel because he believes everyone that loves him will die. He believes this because a demon put a 'curse' on him. Tessa Gray- Tessa has blonde hair and grey eyes. She is very witty and enjoys literature. Recommendation of book Setting Jem Carstairs-Jem has silver hair and eyes, due to the drug he was tortured with before his family was killed. He plays the violin and is very kind, caring, and lovable. The most unique thing in Clockwork Angel is that there are supernatural occurrences such as demons, shape shifters, witches, vampires, and werewolves, etc. I definitely recommend Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare. I recommend this book because it uses great figurative language, such as "The machine walked like a man." Also, "There was a boy standing in front of her. He couldn´t have been much older than she was-seventeen or possibly eighteen. He was dressed in what looked like workman´s clothes-a frayed black jacket, trousers, and tough-looking boots. He wore no waistcoat, and thick leather straps crisscrossed his waist and chest. Attached to the straps were weapons-daggers and folding knives and things that looked like blades of ice. In His left hand-slim and long fingered-was bleeding where she had gashed the back of it with her pitcher. But that wasn´t what made her stare. He had the most beautiful face she had ever seen. Tangled black hair and eyes like blue glass. Elegant cheekbones,and long, thick lashes. He looked like every fictional hero she´d ever conjured up in her head. Tessa Gray goes to London to live with her brother. When she arrives Tessa is captured by twin sisters dubbed 'the Dark Sisters'. She was tortured and forced to use her gift of shape shifting for evil until Will Herondale rescues her. He then takes her to the institute, a place for shadowhunters to be cared for. Tessa meets the residents of the institute, Charlotte Branwell, the head of the institute, Henry Branwell, Charlotte's husband and inventor of a many great inventions, Jessamine Lovelace, girly and against all things shadowhunter, Jem Carstairs, a kind but very ill shadowhunter. Presentation Themes Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare Most unique thing in the book Presentation by Canaan Hall Clockwork Angel takes place in the institute, and the Dark Sister's home. The institute is an old church with very many rooms for passing visitors. The Dark Sister's house is large but sparsly furnished, in Tessa's room there is a bed with restraints, a mirror, and a nightstand with a few books. The themes for Clockwork angel are; you always need friends that you can trust, don't judge someone by their looks you don't know what they are going through, and even someone you wouldn't expect could be the hero. Cassandra Clare One prominent literary item in the book is personification. Personification is used throughout Clockwork Angel, such as "The machine walked like a man." Another example is, "The door creaked with a noise that sounded like a scream."

The PL emission of ZnS-graphene decreased compared to the pure ZnS due to the presence of graphene the PL emission of the ZnO-ZnS core-shell nanostructure decreased due to the presense of ZnS shell and formation of type-II band alignment structure in the hetero-interface which is beneficial for solar cell devices. The presence of rGO in ZnS-rGO composite gives significant improvement in the degradation of methylene blue under visible light irradiation compared to pure ZnS, due to the increased adsorption of the dye, decrease in the band gap and stepwise structure of the energy levels in the composite. The presence of graphene and PPy in the GZP turnary composite lead to higher photocurrent response due to the creation of an interfacial separation between the graphene and the PPy by ZnS nanoparticles, which act as a bridge, and due to enhanced charge transport by graphene.

Transcript: "Empty and Marvelous" --> "The point is not to make an effort to silence the feelings and cultivate bland see through the universal illusion that what is pleasant or good may be wrested from what is painful or evil." - (The Way of Zen, 115). Only alternative to a life of constant progress is felt to be a mere existence, static and death The illusion of the human mind is bound to a dualistic pattern. Ex: People assume that mind and body are separated. Good and evil cannot be separated. Zen teaches people: to understand that life is not something so simple that you can just take from some place else To understand that to succeed is always to fail - meaning that the more one succeeds, the greater the need to keep on succeeding becomes to understand that the good and evil, the pleasure and the pain are inseparable to receive trouble is to receive good fortune to receive agreement is to receive opposition Zen and free choice choosing is absurd because there is no choice Zen is not fatalism (fate) Submission to fate implies that someone who submits is who is a helpless puppet of circumstances. There is no such person for Zen. Alan Watts. The Way of Zen. 2015 Yuan, Jinmei. Introduction to Buddhism. - "Zen": Japanese pronunciation of the Chinese character "chan," which is in turn the Chinese translation from the Indian Sanskrit term "dhyana," which means meditation - Not considered a theory, idea, or piece of knowledge but a practical experience - Cannot intellectually grasp Zen What does Zen do?: Zen Principles and Practices - became popular during Tang Dynasty (618-690 AD) due to the convenience/ease to practice - Zen is a spiritual bloodline between master and disciple that has been practiced for over 2500 years - Buddha's teaching was transmitted from India to China by a monk named Bodhidharma By Lisa Higuchi, Christine Chong, and Larissa Hamada Sources Bodhidharma Meditation --> a practice to help clear the mind and integrate with your body and breath. To ultimately forget the self. Today's Agenda - Discuss meaning of Zen - Philosophy of Tao - Development from Chinese "Chan" to Japanese "Zen" - Zen in the arts - Principles and Practices - - Meditation exercise - First monk to transmit Chan Buddhism to China - Regarded as first Chinese patriarch - Teachings centered on four-line stanza - Primary teaching are consciousness and reality - "A special transmission outside the scriptures, Not founded upon words and letters; By pointing directly to [one's] mind It lets one see into [one's own true] nature and attain Buddhahood" - except to say he was a pious monk from Indian who came to China and introduced a form of meditation that involved “gazing at cave walls.” Differences between the two schools of Zen What's important --> her and now. Not God, not the afterlife, etc. Faith does not exist --> it's an illusion, "a dream that we strongly consider real, but that in reality only impoverishes the true spirituality of man" There is no need to have an answer to everything Zen does not seek out answers for subjective matters. Believe that it is impossible for humans to know the answers because of our limited condition. History of Zen The School of Soto Soto Zen emphasizes the practice of a gradual and slow achievement of Enlightenment, or Satori in Japanese. It is about living in the moment, and being fully aware and experiencing the here and now. Compared to Rinzai Zen's vision, Soto Zen's vision of Enlightenment, or Satori, is that, it is not a special state of consciousness. But simply a return to the original condition of the human being. To understand this in a clearer way, imagine the consciousness of a newborn baby. It is new and untainted; not contaminated in any way from life experiences. Its consciousness is pure and in full and true harmony with the cosmos and universe. Going back to this original condition is the purpose of Soto Zen.

Transcript: Importance of the 3 levels of Govt. It is beneficial for a country to have 3 different levels of government because various different situations and problems can be handled with different levels as each one has its own set of responsibilities and commitments. For example, public transit issues would be handled by the Municipal Government, whereas property and civil rights would fall under the Provincial/Territorial Government, and finally citizenship or insurance would be handled by the Federal Government. Going up every level, the responsibility grows more importance, and with 3 levels of government it is far more easy to organize these responsibilities. General Responsibilities: defense criminal law employment* insurance postal service census* copyrights trade regulation external relations* money and banking transportation* citizenship Indian affairs General Responsibilities: property and civil rights* administration of justice natural resources and the environment* education healthcare* welfare* General Responsibilities: water* sewage* waste collection/management* public transit* land use planning* libraries emergency services* animal control economic development* Caused by: Failure of pumps at Point Lepreau Coolants stopped working because of a power outage caused by a storm which caused malfunctions Lack of maintenance for their back up generators which meant that all systems stopped working Responding to Death Strike The Federal Government would respond by: Employing volunteers to help cleanse the area of nuclear pollutants Ask for assistance with allied countries Assist Municipal governments with transportation issues Execute the Federal Nuclear Emergency Plan (FNEP) Dealing with water leakage issues Municipal Government Reaction The Municipal Government would respond by: closing up their sewage areas to keep radioactive water from entering Doing an emergency evacuation either in the city or even out of it Transporting people out during evacuations Assisting in traffic control emergency shelters Federal Government Reaction The meltdown from the reactor released huge amounts of radiation within the proximity, killing people with these rays. In addition to this, radioactive material was released into the water not only affecting many of the waters from the tsunami in Japan but also it entered the pacific ocean. That harmed the wildlife but also would travel east to the United States and Canada In the case of our disaster, we wouldn’t really be facing a tsunami, but a defective cooling pump that is backing up causing unnecessary harm to the nuclear plant and other damage. Provincial/Territorial Government The Provincial/Territorial Government would respond by: They would help in major scale evacuations. For instance, they may order evacuations provincial wide and get all the southern areas in NB to areas like the northern part of the province Nova Scotia, Ontario, Quebec or even the United States They would aid in traffic control for major roads to make sure the people or buses are evacuating properly They may also need to be there to provide larger shelters They might need to cut schooling during this predicament. Along with the federal government, surrounding provinces may need to bring their environmental policies to their citizens to make sure certain ares wouldn't go outside at the time In addition to the shelters, they might have to provide rations and help the ones who were evacuated with gathering for Health Units along with the Federal government. The Levels of Government Nuclear Breakdown Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Blast Radius Provincial/Territorial Government Reaction Relief Plan: The aspects of administration involved and required for the relief plan would obviously consist of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) as stated before to help with dealing with the nuclear waste radiating from the leakage. Also, because of the fact that this is Canada's first ever nuclear disaster, aid and support from allied countries such as Japan would be extremely beneficial as they would provide updated instructions and coordinations from their previous encounters with nuclear disasters. (Fukushima) What are the levels of government? Federal Government INTERNATIONAL ATOMIC ENERGY AGENCY Death Strike; What caused it? Chernobyl Blast Radius Municipal Government Area of Pointe Lepreau and Possible Evacuation Areas Death Strike Havoc Report Sites in and around Point Lepreau that have a potential risk of being exposed to radiation
