Example research paper about Harvey Milk:
Harvey Bernard Milk (born 22 May 1930 in Woodmere, Long Island, and died November 27, 1978 in San Francisco) was an American politician and an activist for civil rights of homosexuals. He was the first supervisor (position similar to that of councilor) openly gay city of San Francisco.
Harvey Milk was assassinated along with San Francisco Mayor George Moscone on November 27, 1978. Their murderer, Dan White, was sentenced to seven years and eight months in prison for manslaughter. His defenders pleaded that he was disturbed by a “bad food” (White was eventually released after five years in prison). The verdict, considered too lenient by the gay community but not only, caused a scandal in the public, leading to riots suppressed by the police in San Francisco, the “White Nights Riots.” Continue reading
Magnetism term paper example:
Magnetism is the form of interrelation of the moving electric charges on distance maintained with the help of the magnetic field. In the one row with electricity magnetism is one of the brightest examples of the fundamental electromagnetic interactions. Nearly every material is affected by magnets but there are a few materials which are not influenced by magnetism: copper, plastic, aluminium and gases. People have been familiar with magnetism for thousands of years stating from the ancient China, were people noticed the power of magnet more than 4000 BC, while the ancient Greeks first mentioned about magnets in the 8th century BC. The ancient Chinese, Indian, Greek and other civilizations used magnets for the construction of compasses, which were widely used in sea navigation.
Due to the use of compasses people could travel in seas and oceans safely and know their direct location. Continue reading

The country is divided in 7 provinces and metropolitan area. Nairobi is the capital of the state. The president is the head of state and government. The legislature is the unicameral National Assembly.
With the exception of a narrow coastal strip, Kenya is a plateau; it is extremely diverse in topography, especially in the west of the country. Here you can see the massive ledges, numerous volcanoes, mostly extinct, except for Andrew and Teleki. From north to south, the western part of the plateau is crossed by deep fault-fussure, the edges of which are Highlands. Continue reading
William Faulkner, born September 25, 1897 in New Albany, Mississippi, and died July 6, 1962 in Byhalia in the same U.S. State, was an American novelist.
Although he has published poems and occasionally served as screenwriter for the Hollywood, he is best known for his novels and news. Published since 1920, he was little known before receiving the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1949.
Having located most of his stories in his home state of Mississippi, Faulkner remains one of the most significant writers of the South, along with Robert Penn Warren, Mark Twain, Truman Capote, Flannery O’Connor, Tennessee Williams, and Eudora Welty. But beyond that it is recognized is as one of the greatest American writers of all time and a major writer of the 20th century who had a great influence on subsequent generations.
His best-known novels are probably The Sound and the Fury (1929), As I Lay Dying (1930), Sanctuary (1931), Light in August (1932), and Absalom, Absalom (1936) often considered his masterpiece. Continue reading
Carbohydrates (sugars, saccharides) are organic compounds containing a carbonyl group, and a plurality of hydroxyl groups. The name of a class of compounds derived from the words “hydrates of carbon,” it was first suggested by K. Schmidt in 1844. The appearance of this name is due to the fact that the first known to science were described carbohydrates gross formula Cx (H2O) y, formally being carbon compounds and water.
Carbohydrates are an essential component of cells and tissues of all living organisms, the flora and fauna, making up (by mass) of the bulk of the organic matter on Earth. The source of carbohydrates for all living organisms is the process of photosynthesis carried out by plants.
Carbohydrates is a very large class of organic compounds, some of them are substances with very different properties. This allows the carbohydrates to perform a variety of functions in living organisms. Compounds of this class make up about 80 % of the dry weight of plants and 2-3 % by weight of the animals.

Research paper on B.F. Skinner:
Frederic Skinner was an American psychologist, one of the most influential and prominent psychologists of the twentieth century, according to the American Psychological Association. Skinner is also known as a writer, having published works of art and has received considerable notoriety as an inventor.
Skinner was born on March 20, 1904 in the state of Pennsylvania in the small town of Susquehanna. He was brought up in a friendly family, which, nevertheless, brought the child to respect discipline and order.
In his youth, the future psychologist, fond of different mechanical devices, designed a device for hanging up his pajamas. As a child, he played the saxophone in the school orchestra, and was very interested in literature. Already in the age of fourteen American high school student has shown that he had an extraordinary mind. Continue reading
Eggdrop is an IRC-bot. Currently Eggdrop is one of the most popular IRC-bots. Many running IRC-bots (not to be confused with IRC-operators services of ChanServ and NickServ) are implemented on it.
Eggdrop was written by Robey Pointer, working with Jamie Rishaw in December 1993 for the #gayteen channel of the Efnet network. Eggdrop has peplaced cEvin, IRC-bot Jamie, which faced the limitations of his capacity due to the fact that it was a script. The work on Eggdrop up to version 0.6 was conducted a few years, so Eggdrop became very advanced and feature-rich IRC-bot with thousands of scripts written to extend its capabilities.

The demise of Paul came as a blessing in disguise for Harmon. The Alexandria National Library had denied Harmon a chance to become a member for a long time. The manager, who was an old woman, insisted that the library had reached its elastic limit. “We cannot add any others to our already stretched resources. Please try another institution from downtown.” Magdalene said with a sheepish smile, which made Harmon curse her more.
Today was an extraordinary day for Harmon. After fruitlessly trying to gain the coveted card; his lucky day ensued under unexpected circumstances. Paul had been shot during a gun shot exchange with the police. Paul had spent numerous hours gaining knowledge on how to carry out a successful robbery.
However, his plan fell just short of the world’s worst theft. He was apprehended before he could carry out his master plan. In a matter of seconds, the police had shot him before he could use his weapon. This incident was a blessing in disguise for Harmon. He got the elusive chance to occupy the library thanks to the demise of Paul.
The library had made it clear that the only time they could accept a new member was after an old member died or was convicted. This made it possible for Harmon to occupy the space shortly after Paul died. This opportunity did not present itself easily, since he had not learnt of Paul’s demise right away. He got to read about it in the newspapers three months after Paul had died. Harmon was upset with the old lady, Magdalene, for not having the courtesy to inform him of the latest development. Lady Magdalene, on the other hand, displayed no signs of regret. She shrugged as she reluctantly offered Harmon the library card he had inherited from Paul.
OFDM (Orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing) is a method of coding digital signals by orthogonal frequency division as multiple subcarriers. This technique allows to fight against frequency-selective channels allowing equalization of low complexity. These channels are particularly apparent in the presence of multipath and are particularly disadvantageous when the transmission rate is high. This technique is widely adopted in most applications with very high speed.
There exist several variants of OFDM. DMT (Discrete Multi Tone) refers to a system for transmitting OFDM baseband. The COFDM (Coded Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing) introduces error correcting code. WCP-OFDM (Cyclic Prefix Weighted Orthogonal Frequency-Division Multiplexing) includes the addition of a cyclic prefix and the weighting of the output signal of the transmitter to adapt the mobile multipath channels.
