Sound Engineering and Illumination
This 4 page paper provides an overview of this issue. Illumination and sound engineering are two seemingly different conceptual and structural areas that are often interconnected. In recent years, for example, efforts to reduce energy consumption and to create more effective illumination and sound production devices have determined major shifts in illumination and sound engineering. In assessing these, it is necessary to consider major changes that have occurred in recent years and the central principles related to these types of engineering. Bibliography lists 5 sources.
Food and Genetic Engineering
A 2 page paper discussing the true meaning of "genetic engineering" as it applies to food. Genetic engineering is more threatening in its name than in its purpose. It is the precise and predictable altering of plants to achieve specific characteristics, the same goal of plant breeding for specific traits. Environmentalist groups complain of the possibilities inherent in genetic engineering, but they often fail to understand the true goals of the practice. Bibliography lists 4 sources.
National Society for Professional Engineers
In 5 pages, the author discusses the professional engineer, and a Web site of a professional engineering society, the National Society for Professional Engineers. (NSPE). Bibliography lists 3 sources.
Some Legal Aspects of Hoover Dam
A 5 page paper discussing the federal government's efforts to reduce the sheep and goat herds of the Navajo Indians in the early 1930s in environmental concern about the contribution of silt to the reservoir that would be created by the Hoover Dam. Hoover Dam brought much improvement to life in the Southwest in terms of electrification, flood control, water availability and irrigation, but in many respects it did so at the expense of the Navajo people and the Navajo way of life, and largely with impunity.
