Please read and review my first chapter?

AN: Hi! Thanks for reading and please review!! If you can help me find a better name for this story I would be so thankful! This might MIGHT become a romance story, if I get enough critique and help it can turn into more. I have a lot more of this story on my computer but I’m putting each point of view in a different topic. I gave the half-completed story to my Englishteacher as a project and she gave me an A+ and told me I’m going to end up winning a Pultzier(sp?). That’s just her opinion though…thanks for reading!

Amanda Delman Point of View

“YOU! Get me a black coffee, three sugars! YOU! Get the winter evening dresses sketch and put it on my desk! YOU! Schedule an appointment for me and Rebecca Taylor!”, I point at three random people, who drop whatever they were doing and ran to do what I told them to.

I speed-walked to my office, my hair flying. I never ran, it was unprofessional and un-ladylike. I sat in my office chair and looked at my schedule on my Blackberry.

“MARY!!!”, I shout into the PDA system.

My secratary/personal assistant ran into the room 5 minutes later, hands filled with files and a steaming cup of coffee.

“Yes, Ms. Delman?”, she says, placing the cup on my desk.

“Where are the new cashmere silk dresses?”, I ask, sweetly.

“What?”, Mary replies.

” You know, the blue patterned ones that I worked on for 3 months!! I have a truck waiting outside for the orders!”, I yell.

“Umm..I don’t know what your talking about.”, Mary says, pushing the cup of coffee towards me. She put a dash of whipped cream on top, clearly trying to kiss-up. In my moment of rage, I decide to torment her a little.

“Your not always this stupid…I see you must be making a special effort today! Starting with those clothes, wow, no ones worn moon boots since I was six and I refused to wear mine even then. My God! What is with that belt. We’re not cow-girls on a ranch in Arizona, ok. Seven jeans are fine, but take off that over sized handkerchief covering your neck. You are the junior vice president of a fashion company yet the homeless woman who sleeps in the subway by Broadway has more style than you.”, I rant, dissing her from head to toe, leaving Mary’s mouth hanging open, speechless for a couple of seconds. She recovers quickly.

“Oh! I remember now, Ms. Ross called this morning from the factory in UK. She said that since you ordered 200 dresses, she said it would take more time for her to finish them, since you demanded that only she could do the dress work and you made her sign the confidentiality papers, saying that you wouldn’t let anyone but her do them, and that none of her employees could see the design.”, she finishes and takes a big breath.

“Well, call her back and tell her to HURRY UP! Also get someone to get the truck off the block since obviously, my dresses won’t be coming for another WEEK!!”, I yell.

Just then, a teenager of maybe 16 or 17 came in and dropped a folder on my desk.

“The winter evening dresses Ms. Delman.”, she says quietly before leaving the room.

“HEY! Come back here!”, I yell at the retreating figure.

The girl came back, a look of confusion plastered on her face.

“Yes?”, she says, timidly.

“What. Are. You. Wearing?”, I ask, venom dripping off every word.

“Um, well I thought since this shirt is blue, it would match nicely with-”, The intern starts before I interrupt.

“Mary, get these rags off her and dress her in something from the closet. Take something from the closet as well, huh, you need it.”, I say to the brunette who had been trying to sneak out of the room.

“Well, what do you want me to dress her in? Cashmere or cotton?”, she say using our secret code words for expensive or cheap.

“Cotton of course. What do you expect she’s an intern. Oh and schedule an appointment for me with Lucy.”, I say looking at my bare nails in disdain, hoping Lucy (my stylist) will be able to fix them.

Mary and the teen go, leaving me alone in my office. My stomach growled unpleasantly. I didn’t want to eat in the office so, I grab a green trench and walk over to my mirror, going over my outfit. I stare at the reflection. A lividly angry face stared back at me. She had smokey-grey eyes just like me, plain brown hair just like me…she looked just like me yet I didn’t recognize the angry face.

Ignoring the scary face, I looked at what I was wearing. Black Tracy Reese legging’s matched with a Prada dark green mini dress. It went well with the satin trench coat I had just grabbed and black Jimmy Choo ballet slippers. It also brought out my eyes, which was good, considering its my only feature. I went into my bathroom and put on some lip gloss and blush. Considering myself looking decent, I went out into my office grabbed my Gucci ‘Hysteria’ tote bag, a gift from Vera Wang. I put a couple of folders in my bag then strode out into the main lobby.

to santas kidnapper- this is supposed to be a teen book and will end up like a version of a christmas carol. She doesnt speak like a 17 year old to me, she speaks like the owner of a high-class fashion industry. She is also only around 24-26. It states later on how she becomes the owner so young.

Heat defense help please :( !?

Hey. I straighten my hair almost everyday with Conair Steam. I recently started using Lee Stafford Poker Straight Flat Iron Protection Shine Mist ( before straightening my hair. But I’m not sure if it really protects my hair from the heat. Should I use more products ? My hair is VERY dry and damaged. And my straightener is giving me a LOT of split ends. 🙁
My friend told me Tresseme Heat defense is really good.
Also, is it better to use serum for heat defense or spray? My hairdresser says serum is better as it spreads evenly.

Thanks a lot. 🙂

TRAIN+Locomotive+STEAM enthusiast please HELP!!!!???


Im wanting to thank someone for helping me out with something very important to me.

The guy who helped me is apparently a steam/locomtive enthusiast.

Im thinking of creating a graphic/illustrative “snazzy” painting in my style (NOT a formal “photo-like” painting)

MY QUESTION IS;- what trains/stations/tracks should feature on this paintning. it will be a mix of words, technical drawings/diagrams/flyers/posters/ticket stubs etc as well as the obvious trains – but what tracks, destination etc are ubiquitous and championed in trains etc????

This guy is from Yorkshire btw so any helpwould be appreciated. Thanks for reading this.

Imagine an electric car and a steam engine generator, please do not compare to gasoline, 120 mile distances?

The questions are: What can we do? Where can we find these documented attempts of others. Can we find out if these ideas were ever attempted? Has anyone done any research or have some positive information? Who could we ask or notify, to get these answers?

Please check my history-math project. its not very long?

Charles Babbage was born in Teignmoth, Devonshire, Uk on December 26 1792. He was the son of Benjamin Babbage, a London banker. When Charles was young, he didn’t go to school but instead, he was his own instructor in Algebra, which he really liked and found very easy for him to understand. Charles Babbage was an English mathematician, analytical philosopher, mechanical engineer and (proto-) computer scientist. When Charles went to Trinity College, Cambridge, in 1811, he found himself far in advance of his tutors in math. In his twenties, Babbage worked as a mathematician. He was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society, in 1816, and played a very important part in the foundation of Astronomical Society in 1820.

Babbage has published some work of his such as A Comparative View of the Various Institutions for the Assurance of Lives (1826), Table of Logarithms of the Natural Numbers from 1 to 108, 000 (1827), Reflections on the Decline of Science in England (1830), On the Economy of Machinery and Manufactures (1832), and Ninth Bridgewater Treatise (1837). He also played a very important role in the making of the Association for the Advancement of Science and the Statistical Society.

In 1827, Babbage’s father, his second son and his wife all died in this year.

In 1822, Charles created his first operational model of the Difference Engine. Parts of Charles’ uncompleted mechanisms are on display in the London Science Museum. In 1991, working from Babbage’s original plans, a difference engine was completed, and functioned perfectly. Babbage made a printer that was never completed. Nine years later, the Science Museum completed the printer Babbage had designed for the difference engine. It had incredible complexity for a 19th century device. Charles hated street musicians. Hardships usually came to play in front of his windows and he wasn’t pleased at all. Charles designed machines which could not be built because metalworkers did not yet have good enough tools for him to create these machines. Charles created a theoretical machine. The technology level of his era has made the construction impossible.

What was the first computer that Charles Babbage invented?
The first computer that Charles has invented was a voting machine. Charles did most of his work in England. Charles was also obsessed with fire. He once baked himself in an oven at 265°F (130°C) for four minutes without any great discomfort and to see what would happen. Later, he arranged to be lowered into Mount Vesuvius in order to view molten lava for himself. Many people think Babbage invented the steam engine. Well he didn’t. Babbage invented the prototype of the computer, not the steam engine. He must have enjoyed playing with numbers. Thomas Newcomen invented the first, crude, steam engine and James Watt refined it. This is how Babbage’s Difference Engine I looked like.

This is how the Analytical Engine looked like

The Analytical Engine was functioned to use loops of Jacqard’s punched cards to control an automatic calculator which could make decisions based on the results of the previous computations. This machine also had several features used in modern computers, including sequential control, branching, and looping. Babbage worked on this machine from around 1830 until he died. The Difference Engine wasn’t completed because he came up with this idea of creating the more sophisticating engine called the Analytical Engine. The Difference Engine is basically a machine that can do amazing things with polynomials. An example of a polynomial is:

y = a * x7 + b * x6 + c * x5 + d * x4 + e * x3 + f * x2 + g * x + h

Charles also created a table called Table of Logarithms. In math, the logarithm of a number to a given base is the power or the exponent to which the base must be raised in order to produce the number. For example, the logarithm of 1000 to the base 10 is 3, because 10 raised to the power of 3 is 1000. An important feature of logarithms is that they reduce multiplication to addition, by the formula:
log( xy )= log x + log y

Here is a Table of Logarithms:

These are basically the major inventions that Charles created. Charles Babbage died at age 79 on October 18, 1871 and was buried in Kensal Green Cemetery
in London. All he left was a model of a simple mill and printing mechanism. Babbage’s brain is now preserved at the Science Museum in London.
