|Global warming effects the world on three different levels, the most obvious is the international level, then national and local level. Global affects everybody and should the levels continue we could see significant sea level rises. Many countries are very bad offenders when it comes to greenhouse gas emissions especially the U.S.A and the Russians. Due to this and many other climatic and diplomatic reasons, world summits are held every five years, Rio in 1992, Kyoto in 1997 and most recently Johannesburg in 2002.|
A Separate Peace: Responsibility A responsibility is something for which one is held accountable. Often people say that one is responsible for oneвЂ™s own words and actions; if something happens as a result of something one does one is responsible for it. But is it possible that something could be the result of various actions from different people who are therefore equally responsible, or is there always one person who is most responsible for the incident at hand. Such a situation where this question is relevant is present in the novel A Separate Peace by John Knowles.
A lion, apartheid, South Africa and racism. What do these things have in common. They all play a part in Nadine GordimerвЂ™s collection of short stories called A SoldierвЂ™s Embrace published in 1980. This book is based around the lifestyle of South Africa, and the law separating the different cultures at that time (South Africa no longer has these laws of apartheid as of 1991). In the recent news, there was a story about South Africa and its quarrels. What happened was there was a black man who tried to enter South Africa illegally, and he was caught.
Factors that Contribute to Evil Doing In your view, what is the most important factor that contributes to evil doing and why. What examples from the readings can you find to support your views. Use at least four of the following authors: Arendt, Brecht, Conrad, Engels, Foucault, Freud, Lewis, Orwell, or Sontag. Throughout the history of humanity, humans have committed inconceivable and unthinkable acts of cruelty towards one another. From the brutal wars during the times of the ancient Greeks and Romans, to the modern area of ethnic cleansing and genocide one cannot help but wonder what is the root cause of this evil.
If a person chooses duty over someone they love, does that mean that they did not really love them. This question is posed in peopleвЂ™s lives all the time. Movies and books have taken on this difficult question and given us different scenarios and conclusions to choose from. One of the better movies that takes on this dilemma and solves it in such a way that everyone can connect to it even if the roles are different is Roman Holiday. The two main characters both have their duty. The one a duty to their country and family; the other a duty to their job.
A Brief Comment on the Query: "Is Socrates Guilty As Charged?" In any case of law, when one is considering truth and justice, one must first look at the validity of the court and of the entity of authority itself. In Socrates case, the situation is no different. One may be said to be guilty or not of any said crime, but the true measure of guilt or innocence is only as valid as the court structure to which it is subject to. Therefore, in considering whether Socrates is 'guilty or not', we must keep in mind the societal norms and standards of Athens at the time, and the legitimacy of his accusers and the validity of the crimes that he allegedly committed.
The Major Features of the Ontological Argument for the Existence of God The ontological argument for the existence of God was originally set out in eleventh century by St. Anselm in his Proslogian. Anselm was a Benedictine monk, Archbishop of Canterbury, and one of the great medieval theologians. It has received a lot of both support and criticism from leaning philosophers. The argument is appeals to those who already believe in the existence of God than to an atheist. The argument is entirely a priori; it seeks to demonstrate that God exists on the basis of that concept alone, and show existence as an attribute/characteristic of God, in the same way omnipotence and benevolence are considered to be.
The purpose of newborn genetic screening is to screen newborns for potential health concerns. Newborn genetic screening started in 1965 with the testing of one disorder, phenylketonuria (WDHS). Since then, newborn genetic screening has evolved and over 4 million newborns are screened in the U.S. every year (CCHC Report). Currently, in the state of Wisconsin, there are 47 different disorders that are tested for (WDHS). The process of screening newborns is a relatively short procedure. Before a newborn leaves the hospital a nurse pricks its heel and takes a few drops of blood and deposits it on a special test paper.
The Uses Williams Makes of Setting, Dialogue, Stage Direction and Effects in Scene 6 of A Streetcar Named Desire Tennessee Williams is well known for his use of extensive stage directions to set the mood for a scene, and in A Streetcar Named Desire this is particularly obvious in scene six. As most playwrights do, Tennessee Williams introduces the scene with a short description of the area and surroundings of the characters and their positions. His description of the characters goes beyond simple descriptions, suggesting aspects of their personality as well as their moods.

With the quiet tapping of keys and simple clicks of a mouse, a complex and ever expanding social world thrives inside the digital world of the Internet. Social networking sites have grown immensely as more people take advantage of the Internet to connect with friends and expand their social horizons. Chat features of these social networking sites have become popular as well, giving users the ability to converse instantly and intimately with their friends.
The Conveniences of ECommerce As a child, going shopping consisted of packing the family into our station wagon and driving an hour to a decent sized mall in another town. We would go from store to store, looking for deals in each store and the flyers at the door. I would play the storeвЂ™s video game consoles while my sisters tried on countless amounts of clothing. After hours of this, we would grab food and drive the hour back home. We would often find better deals on recently purchased items in the next store.
American Wartime Media Throughout American history the media has played a key part in the perseverance through great struggles. The endorsement of the people that make up a nation helps to ensure the smooth flow of operations. America is no different from any other nation when it comes to this. A failure to keep popular opinion inline with the ways of the government stalls any wartime effort. Media is used to paint a picture that will bring the populace to the will of its government. During a war propaganda is used to paint the picture the American government wants.

1. Organizational Justice The idea of justice has become noticeable building in the organizational studies. Researchers and practitioners put a great attention to the concepts of justice in the organization because of the potential results from the study. Perceptions of fairness are used as important factors in explaining, predicting and understanding human behavior in organizations (Hartman & Galle Jr., 1999; Martin & Bennett, 1996; Viswesvaran & Ones, 2002). As Colquitt et al. (2001a) explain that a number of studies on organizational justice have shown that fair treatment has a significant effect on the attitudes of individual employees, such as satisfaction and commitment, and individual behavior, such as attendance and citizenship behavior.
With selfhelp books garnishing millions of dollars annually, it's no mystery that people have been looking for a "correct" way to live out their lives. This was as prevalent in ancient Greece as it is today. Aristotle had what he thought was an ideal activity for all those who wanted to live life to the fullest, be happy, and have purpose. Aristotle argues that the best and most satisfying activity is study on the grounds that it fulfills the requirements for happiness as an activity better than others.
The Future in Cyberpunk Works Cited Missing The defining characteristics of the cyberpunk genre have been debated since the beginnings of the literary movement. Some authors, classified as cyberpunk, question the very existence of this label, while others are in constant disagreement about the traits that make up the literature. Authors such as Bruce Sterling believe that cyberpunk is the integration of technology and literature in a world where the gap between science fiction and reality is rapidly closing; however, others such as Lewis Shiner have formed the opinion that this literature is merely a product of pop culture, hence it should not have any true literary importance.
Themes in Raymond Carver's Literature In Short Cuts, by Raymond Carver, characters experience trials and problems in their lives, whether extreme such as in " A Small, Good Thing" and "Lemonade" or nominal such as in " Vitamins". They all seem to depict these struggles as uphill battles which the characters cannot and mostly do not overcome. The characters throughout Carver's "Short Cuts" struggle through their lives in private desperation, often to ultimately realize that they are bound to the truth of who they really are, which is shown in the story "Neighbors." In "Neighbors", Bill and Arlene Miller are a couple with menial jobs who give credence to the saying "the grass is greener on the other side of the fence".

The Original Style of Jon Scieszka Jon Scieszka has an original style that is all his own. Many of his books such as The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs, The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales, and The Frog Prince Continued have led several people to believe that he has created a new genre of children's literature: using unique perspectives to retell classic fairy tales. But what motivated Scieszka to become an author. And how does he come up with his innovative ideas. I will answer these questions by discussing Scieszka's many inspirations including his teaching career, students, and his family.
On February 26th 1972, Dam 3 of the Buffalo Mining Company a subsidiary of the Pittston Coal Company, failed resulting in a flooding of the Buffalo Creek Hallow. The disaster caused property damage, wrongful death, and psychic impairment. West Virginia prohibited any dam built any dam built over вЂњfifteen feet in height across any stream or watercourse without a prior determination by the state that it is safeвЂќ (15). The stateвЂ™s failure to properly enforce this law gave Pittston the ability to claim the disaster was an act of God; this was supported by President Nixon who referred to this as a natural disaster (187).

Critical Appreciation of Robert Browning Poems Robert Browning was one of the great poets of the Victorian age. He was on born 7th May 1812 in Camberwell and he died on the 2nd December 1889. Robert Browning got secretly married to Elizabeth Barrett in 1846 and went on to live in Italy. Browning became an admirer of Elizabeth's BarrettвЂ™s poetry in 1844. He began corresponding with her by letter. This was the start of one of the world's most famous romances. Their courtship lasted until 1846 when they were married.
Introduction South Asian women engage in patriarchal values and normative structure established more than two thousands years ago, continue to be oppressed by a dominant group of men. These women suffer further oppression through the strict adherence to cultural garb. Still today, media and educational system portray South Asian women as selfsacrificing, faithful to the family, and submissive to men. 1. Identify and understand the vulnerable population. Various theorists under the umbrella of critical social theory believe that all subordinate groups are oppressed on personal, cultural and institutional levels by visible and invisible structures as well as by conscious and unconscious means.
Page 1. I think that society should permit the use of drugs for recreational purposes. After all, over twenty years of troop sweeps, police actions and military rhetoric, the evidence is all around us. The war on drugs has flopped. It has been more then ineffective and has actually made things worse. We as American citizens have to wake up and realize that there will never be a вЂњdrug freeвЂќ utopia that we have been promised. People will always be willing to experiment with their bodies and use drugs nomatter the cost involved in doing so.
A.O. Lovejoy begins his introduction to The Great Chain of Being by attempting to explain what is meant by the study of the history of ideas. In doing this, he is referring to "something at once more specific and less general than the history of philosophy." The key difference lies in the units of which each is made. The history of philosophy contains concepts and movements that must be broken down into smaller fragments, or unit ideas. According to Lovejoy, the history of ideas is comparable to analytical chemistry; the primary focus of the historian is to separate the individual units from the greater picture or, in terms of analytical chemistry, to isolate them into their component elements.

Bipolar Disorder Abstract Bipolar Disorder is a mental illness in which a personвЂ™s mood alternates between extreme mania and depression. Bipolar disorder is also called manicdepressive illness. In a related disorder called cyclothymic disorder (sometimes called Bipolar III), a personвЂ™s mood alternates between mild depression and mild mania.

At least fifteen percent of people with bipolar disorder commit suicide.
Benevolent, willing, and knowledgeableвЂ”are all characteristics of Elinor Dashwood. Authors often use characteristics of characters to portray them as imperative pieces of the plot. In Jane AustenвЂ™s Sense and Sensibility, Elinor is shown as an important character through her compassion towards others and her willingness to help her family through difficult situations. Readers first see ElinorвЂ™s importance to the novel through her compassion towards Colonel Brandon, John Willoughby, and Edward Ferrars.
Skrzynecki's Crossing the Red Sea This poem captures the immigrant experience between the two worlds, leaving the homeland and towards the new world. The poet has deliberately structured the poem in five sections each with a number of stanzas to divide the different stages of the physical voyage. Section one describes the refugees, two briefly deals with their reason for the exodus, three emphasises their former oppression, fourth section is about the healing effect of the voyage and the concluding section deals with the awakening of hope.
Race and the Zone System Controversy You get in the cab; you are white and well dressed showing your social status. The cab driver is friendly and takes you directly to your destination. The little map in the backseat of the cab tells you the cost of your trip; however since you, like most people, never even read it, the cabbie tells you the price, and you go ahead and pay without question. You are a resident of the District and have gone the same route many times and for some reason the price varies occasionally.
Motion Picture Diaries: This document reading that I chose to write my short paper assignment on is a collection of diary entries from three different young people from three distinctly different backrounds. Yet, this primary source shows that there is one common link between the three of them and that is their love of movies and the early motion pictures that seemed to captivate Americans from every walk of life. All three of these individuals obviously have had their lives impacted by the movie industry to such a level that feel the need to write about it in their diaries where their personal information is shared.
The Role of Art vs. the Role of Science вЂњart upsets [and] science reassures.вЂќ Georges Braque Before beginning, it is important to clarify that the quote is referring to shock as causing anger or upset. In using reassuring, Georges Braque is referring to comforting. That said, this statement by Braque is true to a point, because the statement also works in reverse. Throughout the history of man, art has been a method for communication, and in the process it has alternatively shocked and soothed the world.
Television Violence The article вЂњTelevision Violence: The Power and the PerilвЂќ is an article written by George Gerbner in 1994 that covers information about television violence over a period of twenty one years. GerbnerвЂ™s purpose in this article is to address the audience about the problems that exist in television today. This article covers a very big controversy that has brewed up in our society. The controversy is that there is way too much violence on television, and therefore it could be affecting the way that we think and act on a regular basis.
The Effect of Culture on People Management today is all about getting things done through people (Hofstede, 1980). In order to do this effectively one has to understand and know the people who have to do them. And here the notion of culture has its significance. Culture here is seen as the predicted behaviour and the shared ways of thinking of an individual in a group. Here culture is not a property of individual, but of group. This group can be a nation, region, ethnic group or a work organisation.

The Mafia way of life may seem like a romantic updated version of the western movie played out on the streets of the big cities where the good guys and the wise guys who share the same instincts and values do battle before an enthralled public but it is actually very different. The Mafia is really just a group of uneducated thugs making money by victimizing the public. Initially, the Mafia was setup as a prominent supplier of bootlegged liquor, but it has spread into many different areas of crime.
Despite the simplistic fact that King Charles I was the legally lawful leader of England, Parliament was more than justified in executing Charles I due to the divergent and passionate views of law and life between the people and the king in politics, society, and religion. Parliament never desired a position where they could control England with fullfledged power. They simply wanted enough limitations on the kingГўв‚¬в„ўs power that would guarantee the people certain rights that the king cannot take away, which juxtaposes the belief of divine right.
Hamlet the Unlike Characters of Gertrude and Ophelia The Shakespearean tragedy Hamlet features two ladies who are very unlike in character. Queen Gertrude, denounced by the ghost as faithless to King Hamlet, is pictured as evil by many, while Ophelia is seen as pure and obedient and full of good virtues. LetвЂ™s explore these two unlike people. Rebecca Smith in вЂњScheming Adulteress or Loving MotherвЂќ presents an unusually вЂњcleanвЂќ image of the present queen that is not consistent with that of the old queen presented by the ghost: Although she may have been partially responsible for ClaudiusвЂ™ monstrous act of fratricide and although her marriage to Claudius may have been indirectly responsible for making a вЂњmonsterвЂќ of Hamlet, Gertrude is never seen in the play inducing anyone to do anything at all monstrous.

Frankenstein Versus Frankenscience The story of Frankenstein. A story that I, myself, have been familiar with for a good part of my life. It is most popular among horror film fanatics and becomes one of the most desired stories to be told around Halloween. Some see it as a welltold story of a man and his monstrous creation. But is there something deeper. Mary Shelley, the author of Frankenstein, gives light to many truths about the era of modern science. She is using Victor Frankenstein and the monster to play out the roles in a drama that can become all too real.
Seth Ingram The wide ranging and imposing site of Dover Castle in Kent, England has been used in various forms as a defensive stronghold for over two thousand years (Microart ). Many years before the Normans ever arrived in 1066 to make the Dover castle we see today, this high land above the English Channel was the location of an Iron Age hill fort, which set the mold for the fortifications still visible today (Microart ). The Dover Castle at Kent has undergone many additions and reconstructions over its years, such as the great grandson of William the Conqueror, Henry IIвЂ™s expansion in 1170 (Castles of Wales Web Site, ).
The Tosa nikki, or The Tosa Diary as it is referred to in English, was the first diary of literary value. The Tosa nikki was composed in kana by Ki no Tsurayuki, who was a government official and well respected poet. During the Heian period, the proper convention was for men to compose their works in Chinese, as this practice was considered more masculine and elegant. Kana was used mainly by women, so it was considered more feminine, and was less valued than Chinese. Ki no Tsurayuki wrote under the guise of a woman when composing the Tosa nikki in order to avoid criticism for writing in kana, although it was still obvious that he had written it due to the masculinity of the jokes that appeared throughout the diary.

In 1968, Martin Luther King Jr passed away from a sniperвЂ™s bullet. He gave us thirteen years of nonviolent protest during the civil rights movement of the 1950вЂ™s. Before I can give my opinion on the history of race relations in the United States since KingвЂ™s assassination in 1968 strengthened or weakened his arguments on the necessity and value of civil disobedience. You should know the meaning of civil disobedience. The word civil has several definitions. вЂњThe one that is intended in this case is "relating to citizens and their interrelations with one another or with the state", and so civil disobedience means "disobedience to the state".
It was not supposed to end this way. My life was not supposed to be this lethargic and dull. Now, I sit here everyday on this illlit table in this illlit room. I sit here and watch the second hand on the clock make its way back around to the twelve. I sit here because all I can do is sit. I am a fake, neoncolored daisy, and this is my life. I live in an odd, quaint home where the sun rarely shines. I donвЂ™t think my owners have moved me or even spared me a passing glance since they first set me down here.
North and South and Hard Times In "Industrial" H Sussman states that "one of the most significant shifts created by industrialism" was that of the "separation of the workplace from the home". This "shift" created "new gender roles" with the "husband as breadwinner [and the] wife as childcare giver" and led ultimately to the "19th century ideology of the two separate spheres the masculine public sphere of work [and] the private female sphere of domesticity". Is, however, this "shift" one which Elizabeth Gaskell in North and South and Charles Dickens in Hard Times not only reflect but one which they endorse.
Zoot Suit, a play written by Luis Valdez, depicts the racially charged trial of the Sleepy Lagoon Case of 1942 in which the courts charged a group of Pachucos with the murder of another MexicanAmerican. During the 1940s, many MexicanAmericans suffered widespread discrimination as dramatized in Zoot Suit. To combat such discrimination many Chicano youth wore stylized zoot suits, adorned with oversized jackets during fabric shortages as a form of social and political rebellion. Zoot Suiters felt disempowered by their position within society and used their fashion to send out a message and as a means to regain their masculinity.
Economic Philosophies How much should we let the government interfere with our economy. Do we trust the government to take on the enormous responsibility of caring for our economy. Our economy is a precious thing and we must take great care of it, for it can make us powerful and prosperous or it could be the demise of our nation. Three economists вЂ“ Karl Marx, Adam Smith, and John Maynard Keynes вЂ“ all had opposing views on how much government interference should be present upon the economy. Karl Marx believes that the government should control the economy.
Eulogy for Friend Three days ago I was working on a lecture dealing with a prominent figure on the French literary scene who happens to be a Sephardic Jew. He pictures the Jew as essentially a wounded man, one racked by his Jewishness. The world for him is a desert, and God is enwrapped in silence. For him the keynote is exile, the stuff of his writing a kind of brave despair. The news of Hays's death broke into my thoughts on this, and it occurred to me that his philosophy of life could be expressed by reversing this writer's terms.

Alexandre Dumas was very familiar with the works of William Shakespeare and was greatly influenced by the ideas in ShakespeareвЂ™s dramatic writings and poetry. Although Dumas did not often allude to ShakespeareвЂ™s literature, he took many of ShakespeareвЂ™s concepts and used them in his own works of literature. In The Count of Monte Cristo, death by poison, vengeance, and forbidden love are all plots that Dumas borrowed from Shakespeare. вЂњThe Count of Monte Cristo creates an intricate world framed with historical events but filled with creative genius.вЂќ вЂњAlexandre Dumas practically rewrites Shakespeare's Romeo and JulietвЂќ throughout the novel of The Count of Monte Cristo.
Ayurveda is the general name given to the collective practices of ancient Indian medicine and is made up of many different components such as lifestyle changes, iridology, massage therapy, aromatherapy and importantly, the application of medicinal plants and herbs. As an ancient science, until recently not much research has been conducted on the efficacy of such treatments and practices. This has been due to both the lack of availability of concrete resources and debate on the validity of translations of first sources.
How Investing Became Cool Bankers and stockbrokers are not generally viewed as the most exciting people in the world. Traditionally, they have been viewed as those guys who are always reading the Wall Street Journal or talking on their cell phones when they're out in public; they wear the same white shirt, red tie combination every day of the week, and there's no noticeable distinction between work and the rest of their lives. Not exactly the kind of people you'd want to invite to liven up a Christmas party.
Oranges are Not the Only Fruit and the two letters in The Color Purple The Chapter 'Joshua' in Oranges are Not the Only Fruit and the two letters in The Color Purple, where Sofia returns and later gets brutally punished for her confrontation, both explore fundamental issues that characterize a lot of the essence of both novels as a whole. At the heart of both of these two sections is the idea of fighting for the truth and facing the consequences. Although Oranges are not the Only Fruit is written in a retrospective light and The Color Purple in epistolary and consecutively in chronological order, there are similarities within the two styles, they use similar techniques in getting across certain issues.
Use of Symbolism in To Kill a Mockingbird Harper Lee effectively uses symbolism throughout her novel, To Kill a Mockingbird. Jem's nursing of the flowers denotes his courage that he nurses in order to be able to tolerate people's criticism of his family, especially of his father. He was forced to take care of the camellias just as he was forced to live with anger, disappointment and a big question mark in his young heart about the workings of grownups. Atticus "never thought Jem'd be the one to lose his head over this" (110).
I can trace my collecting tendencies back to the mere age of two. One of my earliest memories was that of being вЂњbabysatвЂќ by a woman who didnвЂ™t have much interest in her job. Each day I exploded into hysterical tears as my mother rolled my stroller up to the babysitterвЂ™s door. The rest of my day consisted of having my beloved stuffed doggie wrenched from my grasp, and his ears ripped off by a gang of rambunctious and unsupervised boys. And when my mother had to work late, the traumatic days were punctuated with the shouting of the babysitterвЂ™s surly husband at the dinner table.
Natures Theme вЂњNature is always hinting at us. It hints over and over again. And suddenly we take the hint.вЂќ This quote was taken from Robert Frost and demonstrates his feelings toward nature. Robert Frost is a well known American poet who draws on nature as the subject of his poems. There are three main things that account for Robert FrostвЂ™s poetry. In his poems, he uses familiar subjects, like nature, people doing everyday things and simple language to express his thoughts. His poems might be easy to read by some, but not necessarily east to understand.
Report on Gulliver's Travels. Part III: A Voyage to Laputa, Balnibarbi, Glubbdubdrib. Luggnagg, and Japan In October of 1726 Jonathan Swift published his most famous work, Gulliver's Travels. Most readers are familiar with three of the four parts of this work: the land of the little people (Lilliput), the land of the giants (Brobdignag), and the land of the ruling horses (Houyhnhnmland). However, modem readers may not be as familiar with Part III, which has not received as much critical attention.
Consider La Belle Dame sans Merci and To Autumn by John Keats John Keats was born in 1795 and died in 1821. He lived a short life as he suffered from tuberculosis, and died in his early twenties. Keats is one of the great Romantic poets of the early 19th century. Most of his poetry was crammed into the last few years of his life, which is why some of his poems relate death. He had a great love for nature, which was always included in his poetry in some way. He saw his mother and his brother die of TB when he was younger so when he realised he too had the illness he knew what was in store.
Southwest Airlines is the industry leader in low cost airfare. They began its operation in 1971 with three Texas based routes and began interstate routes in 1978. When Southwest entered the market in 1971 they employed a market penetration pricing approach. They wanted to provide the best service for the lowest possible price. They saw that if they cut out certain unnecessary benefits they could lower their ticket price to a level far below that of the competition. They do not have in flight movies, meals, or first class sections.
Genetic engineering is the intended modification to an organismвЂ™s genetic makeup. There have been no continuing studies on this topic or action so there is no telling whether or not it is harmless. Genetic engineering is not safe because scientists have no absolute knowledge about living systems. Given that, they are unable to do DNA surgery without creating mutations. Any interference on an organismвЂ™s genetic makeup can cause permanent damage, hereditary defects, lack of nutritious food, or a spread of dangerous diseases.
William Blake: Songs of Innocence and Experience William Blake was born in the year 1757 in the city of London. Although he had no recognized education he was taught to read and read a great range of literature. Influences from certain writers and poets can be seen in his later works. Blake studied drawing at a local school. He also studied temporarily at the Royal Academy School, in the early 1770's. This introduction to art formed the career of Blake as an engraver. Blake set up a print shop, which was not very successful.

ProWrestling I want to discuss how the business of pro wrestling is viewed in today's society, and how wrestling has reached such widespread notoriety. I mean, honestly. Let's face it. The vast majority of the American population looks down upon this form of sports entertainment. As a whole, professional wrestling fans are thought to be toothless, sweaty, smelly rednecks with low IQ's, low morals, violent streaks, and a thirst for blood. Stereotypes of this magnitude are partially to blame for the mainstream media looking at professional wrestling with a condescending eye and, as such, making a mockery of it.

This paper is an attempt to examine domestic violence in lesbian relationships, and the modern response to it, in a social and historical context. I chose to examine domestic violence within lesbian relationships in an attempt to look at violence in relationships outside the context of male and female. I did this because the popular beliefs that men are abusers and women are abused made it difficult to discuss or consider what was actually occurring in these troubled relationships, and what each partner contributed to the dynamic.
However, because she lives a life of prostitution and the stigma that goes along with it romantic love is not an option for her and Willmore uses Angellica for her physical appearance then leaves her to be with Hellena because of her higher status and wealth. Angellica chooses prostitution over love because she believes вЂњinconstancyвЂ™s the sin of all mankind, therefore IвЂ™m resolved that nothing but gold shall charm my heart.вЂќ Both women believe men cannot be faithful with their love and actions, but Hellena rebels and uses her wit to take control of the identity given to her while Angellica suppresses her desires and falls into the identity given to her.
The History of Country Music The hillbilly music of the south is a genre of music that is beginning to grow at an immense rate throughout the United States. Originating in Bristol Tennessee, country music is a type of music that integrates the blues, jazz and originally some "hillbilly folk" with a bit of swing, and just recently some pop has been added to the sound. The lyrics represent the "faithfully charted vicissitudes of the workingclass life; as Charlie Rich put it, "life's little ups and downs"" (Scherman, 1994).
The big question. No not that, the other one. The "what happens to us after life" question. It is something that has intrigued people everywhere. It has prompted the beliefs and semantics of different cultures all around the world. It started wars, divided people, and now dictates how we are all to act. "We should do this, we should do that. If we don't, we will be punished." I, for one, am tired of it. By all means, think what you will. But this is my writing, and you will have to open your mind to my thinking if you wish to continue.
Due to the vast speculations of the assassination of John F. Kennedy on November 22, 1963 in Dallas, Texas the mystery of what really happened still lies amongst us today. From theory to theory there is no telling what the true motive in killing the President really was. Among the various theories are those that involve the Chicago mafia, Lee Harvey Oswald attempting the murder by himself, and the left and right wing factions of the U.S. government. After several investigations, there is no real proof, for any one of these theories.
The Sinking of the Titanic in Dusk to Dawn by Dr. Paul J. Quinn The sinking of the luxurious Titanic was a traffic disaster that could have been avoided. Dr. Paul J Quinn stated in his book Dusk to Dawn " The Titanic had actually been designed to carry fortyeight lifeboats but was rejected because it made the deck look cluttered"(11). The sinking could have been avoided if the Titanic crew had not over estimated its strength, and had listened carefully to the warnings of numerous other ships, and if the crew managed the rescue efforts into the lifeboats correctly.
The Importance of Using a Condom In a recent study performed at the University of New Orleans by Dr. Bruce M. King, only 20% of men reported using a condom consistently, while only 50% reported using protection with a new partner. The results of condom use or lack there of is clear: ? 2/3 of all STIs occur in people 25 years of age or younger ? By the age of 24, 1 in 3 sexually active people will have contracted an STI ? In 2000, 15 to 19yearold women had the highest rate of gonorrhea compared to all other age categories.
Immorality and moral ambiguity are two concepts that will ruin any relationship. In Geoffrey ChaucerвЂ™s The Canterbury Tales, he specifically illustrates through his pilgrimsвЂ™ stories some comical and realistic events that display immorality in the Middle Ages. There are several characters whose stories are focused on presenting the immorality within their tales. Like that of вЂњThe MillerвЂ™s Tale,вЂќ and вЂњThe MerchantвЂ™s Tale.вЂќ Chaucer utilizes these tales to display one specific immoral act, which is sexual sin or lust.
Major League BaseballвЂ™s (MLB) commissioners are debating about the anabolic steroids situation that is occurring in professional baseball today. To many professionals are getting accused of using the harmful drug. Professional baseball players are getting tested twice a year for anabolic substances throughout the course of the regular season. In order to stop steroids in MLB, commissioners should pass random drug testing. Tony Larussa stated, вЂњBy having random drug tests, it would make the game of baseball true once again.вЂќ Steroids are ruining the game of baseball, and the commissioners need to decide on something soon.
Magic realism as postcolonialist device in Midnight's Children Magic realism in relation to the postcolonial and Midnight's Children 'The formal technique of "magic realism,"' Linda Hutcheon writes, '(with its characteristic mixing of the fantastic and the realist) has been singled out by many critics as one of the points of conjunction of postmodernism and postcolonialism' (131). Her tracing the origins of magic realism as a literary style to Latin America and Third World countries is accompanied by a definition of a postmodern text as signifying a change from 'modernism's ahistorical burden of the past': it is a text that 'selfconsciously reconstruct[s] its relationship to what came before' (131).
