Modern communication technology has brought us Internet connectivity just about anywhere on the planet. One very useful tool has been WiFi on airplanes. Communicating with a moving target is significantly more difficult than communicating with something that is stationary, especially an object that is traveling at 600+ mph.
- Define, discuss and describe what technologies are currently in use for Wifi on airplanes. There are currently two mainstream methods in use. Describe how each accomplishes the same task using different communication techniques.
- Traditionally, it has been very expensive to make phone calls while on an airplane. With telecommunication convergence, there is no longer need for a distinction between voice and data. Internet access on domestic flights can be purchased for as little as $7 per day/flight. After a long-standing ban on VoIP phone calls on flights, airlines are now considering allowing VoIP calls using airplane WiFi. One can quickly see that 200 people making phone calls can become a significant disturbance, especially when you are trapped in an aluminum can for 15+ hours. Give your opinion on whether telephone conversations should be allowed on airplanes and suggest possible compromises.’
The conclusion was not a satisfactory ending to the work. The plotline took a long time to develop causing the ending to feel completely rushed and abrupt to readers. In addition, through the plot, readers would have developed questions about the plot that should have been answered in the conclusion. However, a majority was left unanswered and the unsatisfactory ending had actually raised new questions. When Miles died in the governess’s arms after seeing Peter Quint, the author just ended abruptly with the death and did not conclude with any further explanations regarding what happened with Mrs. Grose and Flora as well as the feelings of the governess after the death. The plot should have ended with information on what happened after Miles’s death including how the news was delivered to Mrs. Grose and Flora as well as how the governess felt afterward. This gives the readers closure as to how the death affected all the other characters. In addition, the ending would have been more satisfactory if the letter to the employer was sent and readers have the opportunity to see how the employer would have reacted to Miles’s death. Memorable lines/scenes (minimum of 6 lines-3 for A, 3 for B) Memorable lines from the book that you liked or that illustrated important ideas in the work. “‘Think me–for a change–bad!’ I shall never forget the sweetness and gaiety with which he brought out the word, nor how, on top of it, he bent forward and kissed me. It was practically the end of everything. I met his kiss and I had to make, while I folded him for a minute in my arms, the most stupendous effort not to cry.’” (James 46) What makes this line so important is that it summarizes the main idea that is prevalent throughout the story: that the governess adores Miles to the point of disregarding any odd situation he creates. Ever since from the beginning of the book, there has been this unrequited and excessive adoration for both Miles and Flora that was instantly born from the governess. The whole phenomenon of it is questionable and entirely odd: why are they so lovable? Why does she have such a strong and one-sided love for these children? For what reasons is her infatuation there? and many questions of the like. James leaves the reasons behind her infatuation ambiguous to his readers, which adds to the intensity in which his readers can interpret the governess’ love for the children. The quote reinforces the idea of how the governess can so easily discount Miles’ concerning explanation for being mischievous and melt in his loveliness just because she adores him that much, and it adds to the overall slightly uncomfortable and mysterious mood that shrouds the book. “… she was hideously hard; she had turned common and almost ugly. ‘I don’t know what you mean. I see nobody. I see nothing. I never have. I think you are cruel. I don’t like you! … Take me away- oh take me away from her!” (James 199). This quotation is a crucial turning point in the novel since it reveals that the apparitions of Peter Quint and Miss Jessel are most likely just the hallucinations of the governess. Throughout the novel, the governess had constantly insisted that the children were able to see the ghosts the entire time and were only refusing to reveal this fact, however, this scene disproves her claim greatly. Therefore, the governess’ mental stability would be most vulnerable to the criticisms of the book’s characters and the readers as we question whether she should be trusted. The readers also may draw the conclusion that the governess is delusional for being so adamant on the existence of the ghosts despite the evidence suggesting otherwise. Another significance of this quotation is that it is one of the f>GET ANSWER
