  • Dust Bowl - 752 words
    Dust Bowl The early 1900's were a time of turmoil for farmers in the United States, especially in the Great Plains region. After the end of World War I, overproduction by farmers resulted in low prices for crops. When farmers first came to the Midwest, they farmed as much wheat as they could because of the high prices and demand. Of the ninety-seven acres, almost thirty-two million acres were being cultivated. The farmers were careless in their planting of the crop, caring only about profit, and they started plowing grasslands that were not made for planting Because of their constant plowing year after year and the lack of rainfall, the soil was quickly losing its fertility. With unfertile, ...

  • Dust In The Great Gatsby - 818 words
    Dust In The Great Gatsby Dust in The Great Gatsby In the novel The Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald incorporates many different themes, but the most prevalent message is that of the impossibility of the American Dream. Fitzgerald writes of two types of people: those who appear to have the ideal life and those who are still trying to achieve their dreams. Tom and Daisy are two characters who seem to have it all: a nice house, a loving spouse, a beautiful child, and plenty of money (Fitzgerald 6; ch. 1). However, neither of them is happy, and both end up having affairs. Their lovers, Gatsby and Mrs. Wilson, are two examples of characters who are still trying to attain the perfect life. By the ...

It is not until they discuss life and politics, particularly the reality of "sitting on the stones", that Tony begins to see things from an external perspective. "Sitting on the stones" is a metaphor that means that no matter what, one must always do things one would rather not do, but must because they have to be done. Morten says that Tony will "as Madame Such-and-such ... will vanish for good and all into your elegant world and ... it's off to sit on the stones for the rest of one's life." (136) A letter from her father has a similar effect on Tony. "We are not born, my dea ...

  • Dvdrom And Its Advantages - 449 words
    DVD-ROM and it's advantages As software applications have grown ever larger, data storage capacity has become increasingly important to computer users. The CD-ROM drive has enjoyed a long and industrious career over the last four or five years, but the maximum 748Mb of storage capacity is now something of a handicap, with certain suites and applications coming on multiple rather than single CD-ROMs. As a consequence, users are starting to look for alternatives. DVD disks support capacities of either 4.7Gb or 8.5Gb depending on whether they are single or double layered, and DVD drives are fully backward-compatible with other types of media, which means they can also read standard CD, CD-R, CD ...

Data traffic has been doubling every 100 days (according to the U.S. Department of Commerce) and it is predicted that that Internet traffic will reach 16 million terabytes by 2003. Fiber is the transport medium of choice. It out performs copper, coaxial cable, and high frequency radio in data-carrying ability. As service needs increase, fiber exhaust becomes a problem. In some areas it is not economically feasible to lay new fiber. In these areas, it is important to look at alternatives to provide economical solutions. One of the ...

  • Dwight Bollingers The Origin Of Language - 305 words
    Dwight BollingerS The Origin Of Language Essay Question I found Dwight Bollingers essay entitled The Origin of Language to be a very interesting work. I especially enjoyed the section about the chimpanzees. Although we know that animals can communicate with one another in their own way, they are limited by the barriers of fixity of reference and holophrasis. There is no way they could achieve syntax which means that most animals cannot achieve true language as we define it. It seems that the chimpanzees involved in the experiments which Bollinger writes about have come very close to possessing language. Especially impressive is the chimp named Washoe and her sign language skills. She has man ...

    Dylan and the Sad Eyed Lady of the Lowland Regarding significant musical movements in history, more specifically the twenty first century, few were more important than the folk revolution that took shape in the mid-nineteen hundreds. One of the leaders of this revolution was Robert Allen Zimmerman, known by his popular assumed name, Bob Dylan. Born in 1941 in Minnesota, Dylan grew up the grandchild of Jewish-Russian immigrants and had a surprisingly unexceptional childhood. His interest in music became evident in his high school years when he taught himself basic piano and guitar. From these rudimentary skills Dylan would build his knowledge and experience in music to his present status as a ...

Auden and Christopher Isherwood set sail for the United States, the so-called 'All the fun' age ended. Auden's generation of poets' expectations came to nothing after the end of the Spanish Civil War, and they, disillusioned, left the European continent for good.

For those suffering from dyslexia this only adds to the frustration and fears associated with seeking employment.

Several investigators have noted, however, that many persons with learning disabilities adjust well to the demands and complexities of adulthood. (Greenbaum et al. 1996).
