    1884 words - 8 pages

    The Introduction The history of surfing dates as far back as the origins of the Hawaiian people. What began in Hawaii, has quickly expanded throughout the world to almost every beach and to places where people never thought that could be surfed. From a long, heavy plank of wood, the surf board evolved to a shorter, lighter fiberglass and foam board. Because of the far travels of many ambassadors of Hawaiian surfers, the once small sport of surfing in Hawaii began to spread to many other countries. Today, it is not only a popular sport, but a widespread art, a growing business, and an

    If a professional surfer loses all twelve events in a year, he comes away with $36,000, if he wins even one event that’s $30,000 alone. But the big bucks come from endorsements and sponsors which can earn you any where from a $100,000 a year to around $650,000 a year, with further bonuses available for championship wins and such (Carroll, Nick). There’s a lot of money to be gained in surfing but that’s the opposite of what surfing is about. Surfing an art, a sort of connection with the ocean and the waves that are ridden.

    What Is A Standing Wave

    258 words - 2 pages

    Generally speaking, a standing wave is a wave that remains in a constant position. There are two ways that standing waves are produced. One way a standing wave is created is when the medium and the wave are moving in opposite directions. Another way they are created is through a stationary medium and two interfering waves. Standing wave patterns are the result of the repeated interference of two waves of identical frequency while moving in opposite directions along the same medium. During this interference resonance is created in the system. This interference creates an optical illusion of the

    “ Immature poets imitate; mature poets steal,” T.S. Eliot once observed.

The realities of competition mean that complacency about patents and copyright could be fatal. It is fine for artists to joke about plagiarism. Business leaders rarely do.

    Apostrophe To The Ocean By Lord Byron

    The greatest human fear is that which is unknown, and impossible to predict or anticipate. Byron vocalizes the Ocean’s extreme and often frightening force against human nature in this poem, “Apostrophe to the Ocean”. The ocean is an impregnable force impossible to attack, or conquer. However, our Byron, rather than feeling fearful of the ocean, is inspired by the toll it takes on human life. Byron resents humanity because of its rejection of nature’s natural path, instead modernizing the world. His hope is essentially that the ocean will get fed up and have its revenge against them.
