Introduction
The Piercer is a small device which designed to scare away attackers and to attract others who are willing to help or police officers. It’s a tiny portable device that hung on a chain worn like a necklace. When the device activated, it will emit a piercing sound which could traveled 500 meters away or so, and with a bright flashing light which could get attention from others and scare the attackers. To deactivate the device, the customer had to push two buttons at the same time which could prevent an attacker from being able to deactivate the device.

...and definitely made a difference in terms of my enjoyment of the event. In exploring the tattooing areas which were consistently busy throughout the day, I become aware that this expo had attracted several award winning tattooists as well as being a brilliant showcase for the work of up and coming artists, especially those locally based. As such I thought it would be Issue 186 www.skindeep.co.uk 11 PATRICK By JOHN @ NARCISSISM TATTOO ANNA By ARRAN BURTON @ COSMIC TATTOO, COLCHESTER LEE By MARTIN @ FLAMING GUN, COLCHESTER JAMIE By STEVE @ SHAMANICS TATTOO essex interesting to document some of the work taking shape as the day progressed. One such tattoo was an impressive piece by Arran Burton on the lower leg of local body piercer, Dickie Smith, who underwent a marathon sixhour session. Dickie will hopefully feature in a Skin Deep profile later in the year. Probably my favourite piece of the day was a wonderful and incredibly vibrant Mad Hatter leg piece inked by Julie Clarke, another local artist. Julie is the proprietor of Flaming Gun Tattoo Studio and has been tattooing for about twelve years, during which time she has amassed a rapidly increasing and loyal client base. The recipient of this particular tattoo was the suitably attired, Verity, who explained to me that she had been obsessed by Alice In wonderland since she was a little girl. She went on to state that this piece had originally been intended for her arm, but on a smaller scale. However, when......

...The Piercer Step 1: Identify the issue(s) that management (or the people involved in the case) must address. -Two students must present their business idea to a panel of potential investors. -More specifically, the students must present an innovative idea and business model, identify potential markets and explain why their product would be successful in these markets, and they must sell themselves as entrepreneurs. Step 2: Perform the appropriate analysis and evaluation. -To get a good mark on this assignment, Ashley and Jessica must critically evaluate secondary research. To do this they must (1) evaluate resources, (2) develop effective search strategies, and (3) identify proprietary resources. -To do well on their assignment, the students must do the following: 1. They need to be critical of all the resources and information they use. In particular, they need to minimize their use of the Web, and instead use databases available through their university to gather information. For example, they could access the Wall-Street Journal available online through most universities to show a need for their product (people feeling increasingly unsafe, rising crime against older people, aging population, etc.). They could also use ProQuest ABI Inform Global to find relevant academic and practitioner business articles. 2. They must cite all sources properly. If they don’t, they might accidentally commit plagiarism, and at minimum, fail this assignment. 3. Make......

My Wake Up Call

...My Wake Up Call In the early summer of 2006, I was committed to the man I fell in love with. I was falling in love more and more everyday with him. My endless smiling seemed to brighten my days. The biggest day of my life was approaching. I was getting married to the man I planned to spend the rest of my life with. My children and I felt security in every way imaginable, and we never had to go without anything. My fiancé owned Late Night Creations Tattoo Shop in Mishawaka. I worked for him, I was a tattoo artist as well as a body piercer. I was making $80,000.00 a year. I never imagined how my life as I knew it was going to quickly change. The fact that I had yet to even finish high school to embrace my independance along with my security for my future, was so far tucked away in my mind. Such as, I relied exclusively on his acceptance and love I simply forgot my commitment to myself to create my own path though this mazed puzzle of life. On July 1, 2006, there I was preparing myself to walk down the aisle. My dress was perfect. My hair was gorgeous. My makeup was flawless. Two hundred and fifty guests all present on that day to watch my fairy tale become reality. Everyone was there to fill their role, with the exception of one main character, my fiancé. I never made it down the aisle that day nevertheless I had no reason to. The man I was completely in love with was not at the other end waiting for me. It quickly sank in that I had been left at the altar. I do......

New Zealand Information

...New Zealand [pic] [pic] • Geography New Zealand is a remote, mountainous group of islands in the southeastern Pacific Ocean. The two main islands, North and South Islands, are separated by the Cook Strait. Australia, its nearest neighbor, is 1,000 miles (1,600 km) away. • The islands were created just 23 million years ago when land was thrust out of the ocean by volcanic forces. New Zealand has more than 50 volcanoes, some of which are still active today. Sharp snowy peaks, rocky shores, and pastures create a majestic landscape. • The South Island is home to the highest mountain peak in New Zealand, Mount Cook, which rises to 12,316 feet (3,754 meters) and is called "Cloud Piercer" by the Maori people. • Nature Because of its remote location, New Zealand is rich in unusual wildlife not seen anywhere else in the world. Nearly all the land animals are birds and many of these species have lost the ability to fly. The Maori people and European settlers introduced animals to the islands and the flightless birds had no defense against them. • In the last 1,000 years, half of all animals on the islands have become extinct. Deforestation and draining of swamp land is also threatening many remaining species, including the kiwi bird. Fewer than 75,000 wild kiwis remain. Several species are recovering, including the kakapo, kokako, kiwi, and tuatara. • Bats are the only land mammals to have made the ocean crossing. Birds and insects,......

Weapons

...to depict composite bows, based on the way they are bent when strung. These demonstrate that the bowstring could be drawn both by the fingers—the so-called Mediterranean release—or the thumb—the Mongolian release. Bracers on the left wrist and stalls or rings for the fingers or thumb are also depicted, as are quivers. Finally, during the period of barbarian invasions, the Romans used horse archers who could fire at full gallop when skirmishing against an opponent, but who could also use a sword or spear when directly attacking an opponent’s troops. 21 22 MEDIEVAL WEAPONS Two types of arrowheads have been identified from archaeological excavations. The long, thin bodkin arrowhead is thought to have been used as an armor piercer, with the suggestion that the triple- or quadruple-vaned trilobate arrowhead was more effective against unarmored targets. Both could be tanged or socketed and, as such, either bound or glued to a reed or cane shaft, which was kept from splitting on impact by the addition of a solid wooden piece in the middle. Rare archaeological examples of these arrows found at Dura Europos in Syria have also shown that part of the surface of the Roman arrow was roughened and the fletching was attached by glue. Slings, long a weapon used in ancient warfare, continued to be used into the late Roman period. In fact, Vegetius deemed them to be more effective than the bow. The excavation of one possible sling pouch shows them to have been......

Ex. Argumentative Essay: Ultimately, placing minors in jail stops their development, places them in danger, and creates resentment for the justice system. Compare/Contrast: To be sure, time has changed my relationship with my brother, as we have lost our ability to communicate, become interested in different things, and prefer to live in different cities. Process Essay: One should be aware that getting a piercing is a serious choice, requiring one to choose a reputable piercer, endure a painful procedure, and make sure that one’s skin remains healthy afterward. *** Notice the underlined words: In each thesis, each section of the listed points uses the same verb form.

Corporate Image and Identity

...various perceptions on the market. This is why I have written the word “segments”, but also I could have written “fragments”, since today’s groupings are not that easy to define as before. Yet, this is another issue. The term “consistence” refers to the fact that because the company’s image can vary much in the market, it is important that the part of the corporate communication that is intended to be communicated externally – and internally - appears as steadfast, identifiable, and recognizable. This is not easy, not least because the consistence is decided by the cultural codes. These change as soon as you cross a cultural boarder. What is consistent in Denmark might be inconsistent in Italy. What “hangs together” to a piercer might be absurd to a yuppie. Some companies, for example, are very concerned about creating consistence in details that their audiences are indifferent about, but they forget to take into account the cultural differences that determine what they, as managers, consider being consistent, and the many different perceptions and images within the different cultures. Therefore, the question is always: Is the form of consistence cultivated relevant to the receiver and not just the sender? What is central to this strategy is the realization of the importance of the brand which might force management to think of the compatibility of the products and services the company offers; maybe one 4 of those does not match the brand;......

Introduction to Statistical Thought

...61 Compute the χ2 test and Fisher’s exact test and discuss the difference. Find an approximate 95% confidence interval for the difference in healing probability. 8.4 (From “Mathematics 5” exam, University of Copenhagen, Summer 1969.) From September 20, 1968, to February 1, 1969, an instructor consumed 254 eggs. Every day, he recorded how many eggs broke during boiling so that the white ran out and how many cracked so that the white did not run out. Additionally, he recorded whether the eggs were size A or size B. From February 4, 1969, until April 10, 1969, he consumed 130 eggs, but this time he used a “piercer” to create a small hole in the egg to prevent breaking and cracking. The results were as follows: Period Size Total Broken Cracked Sept. 20–Feb. 1 A 54 4 8 Sept. 20–Feb. 1 B 200 15 28 Feb. 4–Apr. 10 A 60 4 9 Feb. 4–Apr. 10 B 70 1 7 Investigate whether or not the piercer seems to have had an effect. 8.5 Make a plot of the two-sided p-value for testing that the probability parameter is x when the observations are 3 successes in 15 trials for x varying from 0 to 1 in steps of 0.001. Explain what makes the definition of a two-sided confidence interval difficult. 9 Power and the computation of sample size A statistical test will not be able to detect a true difference if the sample size is too small compared with the magnitude of the difference. When designing experiments, the experimenter should try to ensure that a sufficient amount of data are collected to be reasonably......

...calling a Canadian customer service line, ask for a French speaking agent even if you don't know it. Just say "Oh sorry I hit french by accident". The agent will know perfect english. -Never get your ears pierced at the mall (or any place that uses an ear gun). They are never sterilized. They will tell you that it doesn't touch your ear, but sometimes people do bleed, and it gets all over the gun. Then the piercer will just wipe the blood off because there is no way to sterilize it. Then the next person will come in to get it done, the piercer will touch the gun, then touch your ear and pierce it. I spent years doing it in the cleanest way that I could, and it still wasn't 100% safe. I did an IAMA here about it if anyone wants to read it. Going to a doctor to have it done is worse because they rarely do them, and they also use a gun. Most doctors also have little concept about what looks good aesthetically, so they often come out uneven. Instead, choose a reputable body piercer in your area who will do it with a needle. A lot of people get scared away from body piercers because of all their tattoos and weird piercings, but a good one will be osha certified, and know how to safely handle blood. -Next time you order french fries, ask for no salt. They will have to make a new batch for you and you can just put salt on it afterwards. You'll avoid the soggy, grease-infested potato sticks and also the cold, stale variety, and have yourself nice crispy, hot......

Catapults

...CATAPULTS: HISTORY   Catapults 1 The US Navy is now moving to use Electro-Magnetic Catapult System (EMCS) on their aircraft carriers. The EMCS is replacing the Steam Compulsion System (SCS) that aircraft carriers have used for over 9 decades. These catapult siege engines are a dying breed, but let us find out the history of the catapult. Where did the word catapult come from? A catapult comes from two Greek words “kata” and “pultos”. “Kata” means downward and “pultos” refers to a small circular shield which was carried in battle (Catapults, nd). This formed the word katapultos and its meaning is “shield piercer”. What is a catapult? A catapult is an engine that can store energy and then can quickly release this energy to fire a projectile (A brief history of the Catapult, nd). In order for a catapult to be an effective weapon, it must be too big for a person to carry and would require more than one person to operate. As with many inventions, the catapult was developed from the idea of the Crossbow. The crossbow was invented as a handheld weapon and as the crossbow became more superior, it went from a belly-bow to a stand crossbow. The crossbows eventually became so large that they became something in their own right, the Catapult. The Chinese are believed to be the first to use a catapult sometime during the third and fourth Century BC. The type of catapult the Chinese used was an eight foot catapult that was much like a big crossbow. Even though......
