by James Stephens
The Night was creeping on the ground!
She crept and did not make a sound,
Until she reached the tree: And then
She covered it, and stole again
Along the grass beside the wall!
—I heard the rustling of her shawl
As she threw blackness everywhere
Along the sky, the ground, the air,
And in the room where I was hid!
But, no matter what she did
To everything that was without,
She could not put my candle out!
So I stared at the Night! And she
Stared back solemnly at me!

“The Storm”
by Walter de la Mare

First there were two of us, then there were three of us,
Then there was one bird more,
Four of us–wild white sea-birds,
Treading the ocean floor;
And the wind rose, and the sea rose,
To the angry billows? roar–
With one of us–two of us–three of us–four of us
Sea-birds on the shore.

Soon there were five of us, soon there were nine of us,
And lo! in a trice sixteen!
And the yeasty surf curdled over the sands,
The gaunt grey rocks between;
And the tempest raved, and the lightning?s fire
Struck blue on the spindrift hoar–
And on four of us–ay, and on four times four of us
Sea-birds on the shore.

And our sixteen waxed to thirty-two,
And they to past three score–
A wild, white welter of winnowing wings,
And ever more and more;
And the winds lulled, and the sea went down,
And the sun streamed out on high,
Gilding the pools and the spume and the spars
?Neath the vast blue deeps of the sky;

And the isles and the bright green headlands shone,
As they?d never shone before,
Mountains and valleys of silver cloud,
Wherein to swing, sweep, soar–
A host of screeching, scolding, scrabbling
Sea-birds on the shore–
A snowy, silent, sun-washed drift
Of sea-birds on the shore.

Answer by bluesy muse
Check I think means checking or stopping death, as a personification, from entering your space and taking you. The poem fears death. The Storm could be a metaphor for dying, which has a different tone than Check. Death in this poem is looked at romantically where once you pass over, the sun shines and it’s a positive experience.

Q&A: Computer Networking Scenario-What stuff do I need?

Question by Bob Joq A: Computer Networking Scenario-What stuff do I need?
My mate and I are going to design a school computer lab with the necessary hardware and software components along with the IP address for different components. The computer lab consists of one IP network with 100 computers on one Domain. The files are shared using FTP server. Servers are configured with Static IP address and clients have dynamic IP addresses received from a DHCP Server. Programming software like Java, C,C++ are installed on all the users PC’s. The softwares are also available on the FTP server, as a downloadable.

*The lab consists of 100 computers. So a total of 48 port *3 switches would be required. The FTP server can be Windows based or Linux flavor. Windows or Linux based DHCP servers can be setup as DHCP Server. The network address of 192.168.1.0 can be configured as a Scope on DHCP Server. Since all the users are belonging to one domain, an active directory can be configured with one single domain name.

I need help with the stuff below:

*What will I need for this project? (hardware / software needed servers, workstations, routers, switches)
*What protocols will I need to use?
*Estimated Cost?
*How OSI model is addressed with the network
*How the IP/TCP model is address with the internet / cloud

Q&A: I need Help With Scanning this poem for Meter and Effect.?

Question by iliketofrolick26: I need Help With Scanning this poem for Meter and Effect.?
Here is teh Poem, it is a classic:

I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud

I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o’er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.

Continuous as the stars that shine
And twinkle on the milky way,
They stretched in never-ending line
Along the margin of a bay:
Ten thousand saw I at a glance,
Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.

The waves beside them danced; but they
Out-did the sparkling waves in glee:
A poet could not but be gay,
In such a jocund company:
I gazed–and gazed–but little thought
What wealth the show to me had brought:

For oft, when on my couch I lie
In vacant or in pensive mood,
They flash upon that inward eye
Which is the bliss of solitude;
And then my heart with pleasure fills,
And dances with the daffodils.

I need what the effect, meter, and anything else important baout it.

Answer by rainbowunweaver2002
Let me help you with the metre first: it is iambic, i.e. an unstressed syllable is followed by a stressed one, as if you were saying “I AM, I AM”.
It is a crossed rhyme you find in the 1st four verses of each stanza and then a paired rhyme, a couplet, in the 5th and 6th.
In stanza 1and 2 in vers 6 there is a deviation from the very regular metre; these lines start with a stressed syllable, making the beginning almost a trochee, perhaps in accordance with the sudden movement of “fluttering” and “tossing”, whereas everything else is smooth and tranquil, almost pensive; thus the regular beat and the smoothness of the rhymes support the author’s serene bliss.

The formatting in stanza 3 is slightly incorrect at least as far as the lay-out in your questions goes:
“The waves beside them danced; but they
Outdid the …”

Question by : Need help from TECH SAVVY COMPUTER person!?
I have recently been enlisted to design a school newspaper website for my school. It must be very professional and boast a clean user interface. We were hoping to emulate the site inklingsnews.com, but also want to include additional features. Since im not too good at coding and we have little budget, we want to stick to mostly templates. So, what are the things I need and what are some good sites for professional templates. Take money out of the issue, educate me to the best of your ability on what kind of hosting is good, and what I need to make a professional, customizable site with templates.

I need to know stuff about Websites and hosting?

Question by : I need to know stuff about Websites and hosting?
I’m 13 Year olds and learnt Html and a bit of javascript. I want to know what is a good hosting domain website?

It’s probably simple to you lot and think this dudes thick Lol. But yeah please tell me :S

Answer by Sean S
Websites are created by website designers. The websites are then stored on servers (computers with an internet connection that are on 24/7).

Domain names (.com, .co.uk, .com.au) are purchased or leased through a domain name supplier. Domain names point to the server that the website is on.

So when you type google.com into the address bar of your browser, you are being linked to googles server, which displays the website.

If you are looking for a domain name, search ‘Domain Name’ in google and click the first link that comes up – as it is usually a reputable brand.

‘Cloud’ computing is just a marketing buzzword created by companies. All it is, is a collection of servers that store your data.

Need Help Seriously with this assignment?

Question by : Need Help Seriously with this assignment?
You work for the city of Bigtown’s legal department. Bigtown has been trying for years to attract more convention business, but it has been unsuccessful to date. The new mayor was voted in on the tagline, “I’ll make Bigtown the place to see and be seen.”

It’s been six months since the mayor’s inauguration, but tourism is, if anything, worse than before. The mayor is desperate and talking about offering contracts for city work in exchange for convention business. Your boss (the city’s counsel) needs to convince the mayor that this strategy is unethical and possibly illegal. She asks you to research the Salt Lake City Olympics scandal and address specific issues that link to Bigtown’s situation.

The Washington Post article titled “The Big Business of the Olympics and Bribery” (1999) reads:

Salt Lake City and the state of Utah are considered synonymous with the Mormon Church and the morality that flows from religious pursuits. A recent bribery scandal relating to Salt Lake City’s successful bid to host the 2002 Winter Olympics casts a cloud over the city and state.

The Salt Lake Organizing Committee (SLOC) had assigned individual members to lobby members of the International Olympics Committee (IOC) to select Salt Lake City as the 2002 Winter Olympics’ site. Since November 1998, there have been allegations that the members of the SLOC lobbied by making gifts to certain influential IOC members and their families. The allegations are that the SLOC members gave scholarships, free medical care, guns and other expensive gifts valued at hundreds of thousands of dollars to visiting IOC members. IOC rules limit members to gifts with a maximum value of $ 150. One influential IOC member is alleged to have received free medical treatment for hepatitis and financed land investment deals for one SLOC member.

The scandal has resulted in investigations by a several agencies, including the federal Department of Justice, the International Olympics Committee, the U.S. Olympic Committee, and an ethics panel for Salt Lake Organizing Committee (SLOC). The Utah legislature had created a committee to oversee the Olympics because of the approximately $ 1.4 billion initial costs to be incurred by Utah and the State’s obligation to pay any shortfall. That committee has entered the fray and demanded financial accounting from the SLOC. The state of Utah projected receipt of three billion dollars in revenues from hosting the games.

IOC members investigating the scandal have said that punishment may range from requiring an apology to censure to expulsion depending on the results of its investigation. Several SLOC members including president Frank Joklik and vice president Dave Johnson resigned (during the investigation process).

Assignment

Part A – Research the Salt Lake City Olympics scandal and address specific issues that link to Bigtown’s situation.

Part B – Prepare a 4-6 slide presentation for your boss to give to the mayor answering the questions below. Your main points should be listed on the slides and the specific information to support each point must be explained in the notes section of the PowerPoint slide.

Lobbying is defined as “the act of trying to directly shape or influence a government official’s understanding and position on a public policy issue.” (Post, Business and Society 7th ed.) What is the difference between lobbying and bribery?
Whether bribery should be considered unethical or illegal has been debated extensively. Many scholars and businesspeople take the position that bribery should not be treated as unethical. Why is it that the general public considers bribery to be immoral? Use ethical theories or philosophies to explain your answer.
The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (15 U.S.C. sec. 78) makes it illegal for US companies to pay bribes even if they are in foreign countries. Assuming that this is a case where the FCPA would apply, it helps to look at its definition of a bribe. The FCPA defines a payment that is “meant to influence an official to award or maintain business activity” as illegal. Payments that assist the payer to obtain ministerial actions are not prohibited. What argument could the SLOC members make that the payments made do not fit the definition of an illegal bribe under the FCPA?
What is the appropriate punishment for violation of ethical and legal principles? Should the remedies be limited to expulsion of the members who violated those principles or should the entire community be held responsible? Use ethical principles or theories to answer this question

Basically I have no clue what i’m supposed to put on the slides, or what i’m supposed to look up. I’m not asking for anyone to give me the answers just need like a guide or something…
