Martha Ballard
Martha Ballard We as a society are fortunate. We have the luxury of advanced technology to include: computers, telephones, video teleconferencing equipment, cellular phones, beepers, and hospitals with the latest gadgets and gizmos. Our technology is available only because of documented historical accounts. Our idea of work is having to get in our vehicles and driving to our destination and sometimes sitting behind a desk all day to push paper; the worst any of us suffers is a traffic jam here ...

The American Dream

The Wave Of The Future Is Drowning Out Very Quickly. All The Technolog
The wave of the future is drowning out very quickly. All the technology we have created will bit the dust before the systems really are used.

Direct-Mail Advertising

This perception seems to change, however, when we look inside our mailboxes, pick-up our telephone, and even check our e-ma...

Business Strive For High Production At Low Cost. This Would Result In
Business strive for high production at low cost. This would result in the highest profit for a company. To many businesses, this is only a mirage.

1. The Sung Dynasty Was Considered A Golden Age In Chinese History. Du
1. The Sung dynasty was considered a Golden Age in Chinese history. During this dynasty, the economy expanded and China became the leading economic force in East Asia.

Introduction
Introduction The discipline of archaeology can open up the past to us in a way in which we can enter into a dialogue with our ancestors. There are many ways it can do this: stratigraphic excavation, pottery typology, socio-historic interpretation, etc. However, one thread running through this increasingly focused pursuit is that of dating the physical findings to a particular cultural timeline. This is crucial if we are to know, with as much certainty as is allowed, who we are speaking with. In...

This Theory Of The Universe Is Based On The Ideas Of A Caveman, Named
This theory of the universe is based on the ideas of a caveman, named that lived many thousands of years before the birth of Christ. His observations were made only through the use of his body, for there were no tools to aid him in his findings. His findings were based on his observations and the accepted views of the world during his lifetime. This is what he had to say: The earth was the center of the universe. This is an absolute, indisputable fact because it is obvious that the moon, sun, a...
