Long-Term amifications of the Ma Bell Breakup

The old Ma Bell was far from perfect, but she deserved her good name. -- Tom Nolle, 2003

Given its prospects, the new Ma Bell looks an awful lot like the old Ma Bell. And that's not a good thing. -- Shannon M. Heim, 2005

The dichotomy of views exemplified by the epigraph above is reflective of the love-hate relationship that Americans have always had with their telephone service provider. Following the breakup of AT&T, or "Ma Bell" in 1982, one of the few legal monopolies in the United States, seven so-called smaller regional "Baby Bells" long-distance providers were created, four of which remain in operation today. After almost a century in operation, the breakup of Ma Bell was followed by a wave of deregulation and competition that profoundly affected the telecommunications industry in both short- as well as long-term ways. To determine…

My name is Jason Alexander and there is certainly a good story behind it. My parents were told during ultrasound that they were having a girl and so they chose the name Alexa for me. But when I turned out to be a boy, they found themselves without a name. They were shocked to say the least and when they recovered, they realized they had not even thought of a boy name.

"Curtiss - Wright: The Start of a New Era"

The Wright rothers historic flight of December 17, 1903, is the stuff legends are made of. Although there had been many others who attempted flight and flew aircrafts before them, like their mentor and predecessor Samuel Pierpont Langley, Wilbur and Orville Wright were considered pioneers in the "art of flying" (McIntyre, 1994). Langley was famous for the flight of the "Aeorodrome" that plunged into the Potomac River just days before the Wright rothers successful flight in 1903. He bore the wrath of Congressman who were upset because of the $50,000 loss of tax payer dollars that had been utilized to finance the flight.

ecause of the Wright rothers 'pioneer status' they were afforded "broad interpretations of their patents from the U.S. courts" (McIntyre, 1994). As such, the brothers held a virtually monopoly on human flight, and the brothers found themselves…

Digital communications could be described as being borne from the first electronic transmission of words via a wire uttered by Alexander Graham Bell. Those words; "Watson, come here. I want to see you" (American Treasures, 2010) will live on in historical fashion as a changing of not only the manner in which individuals communicate, but the changing of an entire world. From that era to today's digital communication accessibility almost anywhere in the world took nearly 140 years yet advanced society light years into the future.

In today's modern communication modes there are a wide variety of methods for communicating not only the spoken word, but the written word, text, images, pictures, books and entire libraries of information at a press of a button. There are also a number of digital methods for transmission, including but not limited to; TETA (terrestrial trunked radio), the Internet via Widebrand and Broadband, and…

First paleolithing "petroglyphs" and written symbols. This is important in the history of communication because it marks the first time humans left a recorded form of communication. Also, these written symbols became the ultimate source of later alphabets.

Wikipedia, "Petroglyph."

12,600 BCE.

Cave paintings at Lascaux show early representational art. This is important in the history of communication because the caves depict over 2000 figures, including abstract symbols. More recent research suggests these may record astronomical information.

OURCE: Wikipedia, "Lascaux."

3400 BCE.

First surviving umerian pictograms demonstrate a primitive form of record keeping. This is important in the history of communication because pictograms, together with ideograms, represent a primitive form of writing, in which a symbol either means what it looks like, or represents a single idea.

The earliest experiments of airplanes were conducted in the pre-19th century. The Wright brothers conducted their maiden flight in 1902 but before this, there was decades of research and development. During the First World War, there was widespread use of aircrafts. Aircrafts were first used to conduct reconnaissance before they began being used to transport military people and their equipment. With further advancements, aircrafts began being used to mount machine guns and to drop bombs. Civil aviation began in the period between the First World War and the Second World War. This was made possible by the availability of inexpensive military aircraft used for World War I. During the Second World War, air warfare was highly used. This involved the deployment of strategic bombers, long-range bombers, and anti-aircraft artillery which was used to shoot down airplanes. The jet age is the period which saw the development of faster airplanes that could fly at higher altitudes and longer distances. Today, aircrafts have revolutionized transport and helped people move from continent to continent and country to country faster. This is what I have learnt regarding the history of airplanes and how they have impacted technology. I will teach this to future middle school classes by helping them to see how airplanes were developed and how they influenced technology. The lesson will be conducted in a systematic way which starts with the history of airplanes from the pre-19th century to the planes we see today while highlighting the important developments of each period.

This problem was addressed by the development of the telephone dial which created a special switch that when the dial was pressed, the phone with the corresponding digits was alerted and all others were muted. Today, telephones have made communication very easy. It is even possible to communicate with a person thousands of miles away in another country or even continent. I will teach this to the future middle school students by addressing each age in the development of the telephone and letting them know how the telephones that we currently use came about.

Social Networking

An Examination of the Purpose and Utilization of Social Networking Websites

Alexander Graham Bell's invention of the telephone in the late 1800s revolutionized civilization.

t was not until 100 years later, in the late 1970s, that another such discovery was made. This latter discovery was that of the nternet. Many argue, furthermore, that the discovery of the nternet involves an even greater advancement in human history than Bell's telephone, for nothing has touched so many, so quickly, and so deeply as the advent of the nternet, and with it, within a relatively short time, the culmination of social networking in a variety of websites, utilize worldwide. This paper will offer a quick examination of how such websites, including Facebook, MySpace, Twitter and Linkedn, have been utilized by individuals in the last decade to promote both personal and work-related interests.

People utilize social networking sites for many reasons but,…

It is thus difficult to single out the purpose for which a social networking site is being utilized. Though one can generalize, with different world events and a constant evolution of these sites, their purpose is constantly changing, and often times it includes the connection of more and more individuals worldwide, which is a phenomenon to be embraced.

Forsaken Island

Christopher Sholes -- Typewriter (1867)

Sholes' major input was both the primitive typewriter and the QWERTY keyboard that was later developed to refine his typewriter. While the initial goal of the typewriter was the creation of a way to number book pages, tickets, and other documents, the machine's development later proceeded to include letters. The first model was sent out to stenographers for testing; the QWERTY keyboard system is still being used today. A typewriter would be an excellent invention on the island, assuming there would be plenty of reedy papyri or some sort of paper-like plant substance to be used for typing. It is a major equipment for putting down thoughts to paper, and should somebody else be stranded in the same island, the typed-up papers might even provide some reading entertainment or maybe even advice!

Joshua Pusey -- Matchbook (1889)

Pusey was an American attorney and…

Dickson was an American cotton buyer for the Jonson & Johnson Company, and was made Vice President of the same company after his creation of the popular adhesive bandages. It was first devised due to the fact that his wife was usually prone to cutting herself with a knife while she cooked and did household chores. With the use of gauze, and crinoline for sterility and safety, the bandage was a success and the Band-Aid brand became a household name. First aid should always be a priority in the island, and having small Band-Aids around would definitely keep the infection risks at a low.

5. Elias Howe -- Refined Sewing Machine (1846)

Howe had a difficult time selling his patent on the refined sewing machine, though he did successfully reclaim the rights for his refined cross-stitch invention in a case against the Sewing Machine Company. While he did not invent the first primitive sewing machine, his added features were most notable, as they are still used in the modern sewing machines today. These features include the needle with the eye at the point of the machine, the automatic feed, and a shuttle that operates beneath the cloth to form the lock stitch. Clothing must be made somehow, right? So it would be no surprise that things could be easily tailored and fitted with a sewing machine at one's side. It would be the only logical choice amidst the inventions.

The Wrights had thought of this; it was in Claim 1 of their patent" (Heppenheimer, 2003, p. 324). However, Claim 1 was not part of the litigation, which meant that the remaining Wright brother, Orville (Wilber died in 1912), had to file a brand new suit, which he did in 1914 (Heppenheimer, 2003, p. 324). This second suit dragged on until 1917, when it became obsolete because of World War I. The U.S. government ordered a massive number of airplanes to fight the war, and patent holders all pooled their resources to help the government. By this time, Curtiss had numerous patents of his own, and he never instigated a patent lawsuit, believing the technology and shared information was far more important than patent infringement (Heppenheimer, 2003, p. 330). His flying boats were being used by England before America entered the war, and to get around the lawsuit, Curtiss built…

Progressivist Museums

The progressivist philosophy of culture, which posits that advancements in science, technology, social, and economic development are crucial in the development of advanced societies, and that societies advance from a state of barbarism toward a more civilized state, is evident in the modes of display of some of the most popular museums in the world. These museums, The Louvre in Paris, Pitt Rivers in Oxford, and the Smithsonian in D.C., use the progressivist ideology to promote both a cultural theory and a strident nationalism rooted in the belief that its citizens are advancing towards the promise of a better tomorrow. This paper will show how these museums do so.

As Andrew McClellan states, "the public for art is diverse and divided by interests and levels of knowledge."

Appealing to and uniting these diverse interests is what a progressivist museum must do in order to guide its public to…

Fern Hill (Dylan Thomas)

The "Poetry Explications" handout from UNC states that a poetry explication is a "relatively short analysis which describes the possible meanings and relationship of the words, images, and other small units that make up a poem."

The speaker in "Fern Hill" dramatically embraces memories from his childhood days at his uncle's farm, when the world was innocent; the second part brings out the speaker's loss of innocence and transition into manhood. This explication will identify and critique Thomas' tone, imagery (including metaphors) and expressive language (as it contributes to the power of the poem).

Some Chinese researchers assert that Chinese flutes may have evolved from of Indian provenance.

In fact, the kind of side-blon, or transverse, flutes musicians play in Southeast Asia have also been discovered in Africa, India, Saudi Arabia, and Central Asia, as ell as throughout the Europe of the Roman Empire. This suggests that rather than originating in China or even in India, the transverse flute might have been adopted through the trade route of the Silk Road to Asia. In addition to these transverse flutes, Southeast Asians possessed the kind of long vertical flutes; similar to those found in Central Asia and Middle East.

In Samuel Taylor Coleridge's "Rime of the Ancient Mariner," considered by many scholars as the quintessential masterpiece of English Romantic poetry, the symbolic themes of mystery and the supernatural play a very crucial role in the poem's overall effect which John Hill Spencer sees as Coleridge's "attempt to understand the mystery surrounding the human soul in a universe moved by forces and powers... immanent and transcendent" (157). Yet the Mariner himself appears to be trapped in this supernatural world as a result of ghostly manifestations which emanate from the realms of the unknown.

The Rime of the Ancient Mariner" was first published in Lyrical Ballads in 1798, a collection of poetry written and published jointly by Coleridge and his good friend William Wordsworth. Yet the text of the poem generally in use today appeared…

Both of them are very accurate but they do not work together and he tried to solve that problem for the rest of his life. Einstein knew that this problem would have to be solved if we wanted to understand exactly what happened to create the universe in the very first instant of time.

If Albert Einstein were alive today, he would also be trying to stop war because he was very opposed to warfare between nations. He would also be working to promote nuclear power plants for energy and to reduce or eliminate nuclear weapons as much as possible. During World War II, Einstein knew it was necessary to invent the atomic bomb to end the war but he was very opposed to nuclear weapons otherwise.
