  • History Individual Study - 2,248 words
    ... e the Milanese governor, Crdoba, sent his troops to Monteferrat in March 1628. Olivares did not publicly endorse this move but he probably gave private encouragement to Crdoba. In doing so Olivares found he had provoked a French war against Spain in Italy. Elliott states that the Mantuan war was the biggest blunder in Olivares’ foreign policy. It had major repercussions throughout Europe stirring up the old fears of Spanish aggression. Furthermore, having committed Spain to war with France over Mantua, he failed to keep the French Duke off the throne. Cordoba never managed to break the siege of Moteferrat, partly due to his tardiness; he did not begin the siege until five months aft ...

  • Herman Hesse - 1,870 words
    Herman Hesse Herman Hesse is one of the worlds most necessary writers. Until winning the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1946, however, he was virtually unknown outside of German speaking countries. Since then he has been an icon for the young every where because of his ability to communicate the same struggles that many aspiring students face. Many of his characters (often sharing his initials, i.e. Harry Haller of Steppenwolf) struggle within a world that seeks to extinguish individual creativity. Born in 1877 to a Protestant family in southern Germany, Hesse from the beginning was a square peg trying to fit into a round hole. Perhaps it should be noted that his goal was to be a well-rounded ...

  • Four Summers - 298 words
    Four Summers I found the story Four Summers to be a very odd and different piece. I thought it was a very true and realistic story, but the way it was told threw me off a little. The believable part of the story is how it relates to family life. Many children grow up thinking about how different their lives will be when they are adults, but it just doesnt work that way. No matter how hard you may try, you will end up similar to your parents, be it language, activities, or the lifestyle in general. Throughout her childhood, Sissie seemed to despise the bar and did not want anything to do with it. She also had a tough time deciding whether or not she liked her father. When she grew up, she mar ...

    Theme in Antigone Theme in Antigone Antigone, by Sophocles, is a play that has three major themes. All three of these themes play a very important part in this play. The three major themes are fate, love, and pride. Oedipus had killed his father, king of Thebes, not knowing it was his father and then took over Thebes. He married Iocaste, queen of Thebes (his mother), and had four children; one was a girl named Antigone.

One of those rights is the freedom of speech. A controversy has erupted in the United States because the government is unable to determine the limitations on this right. "In early America when our forefathers wrote the Constitution, profanity was not accepted" (Shoeder 72). This makes determining the true definition of "speech" difficult. A majority of people believe profanity is an acceptable form of language. These people feel that they are free to say what they want without worrying about the rights of others. ...

  • Mr Posgais Biology Ii Class Lab - 753 words
    Mr. Posgai's Biology Ii Class Lab Abstract Mr. Posgais Biology II class often pondered the thought of insects attraction to certain colors on flowers. Well, on September 14, 1999, we decided to experiment and figure out which colors on flowers were more dominant over others. Our Biology class divided up into groups of two and three people. Each group took a different colored piece of poster board. One person in each group applied Tangle Trap to the twelve by nine inch area and stapled each board to a piece of lattice. We then took the lattice outside, about fifty feet from the school building and left it outdoors for about forty-eight hours. When we retrieved our lattice, we counted the numb ...

  • Free Time - 782 words
    Free Time Free Time The wind is blowing through my hair, I feel as free as a bird. Eminem is blaring and I sing along with the song. These are the best feelings I have. I can leave from work having the worst day of my life and get in my car and everything changes. I feel as if for those twenty-five minutes, my life is at ease. Once I get behind the wheel I drive away from my problems and away from reality. I have mainly one focus and that is to get from point A to point B. While doing so I create mental activities which set my mind at ease. That is why I enjoy being by myself, driving. I drive around sometimes just for the heck of it. Sure, I use up valuable gasoline, but it is all worth it ...

  • Intersexuality And Scripture - 1,050 words
    Intersexuality And Scripture Intersexuality and Scripture Sally Gross As a brute physical phenomenon, the bodiliness of people like us who are born intersexed challenges cherished assumptions about sex and gender made by many people within Western society. A variety of social institutions, including the dominant canons of medical practice and conceptions, much of the domain of the law itself, and some of the religious teachings which have loomed so large in the history of the West, tend strongly to support the notion that sex and gender is a dichotomy, and that any given human being is either deterninately and unequivocally male or determinately and unequivocally female. Congenitally interse ...

  • What Is Faith - 712 words
    What Is Faith WHAT IS FAITH? By Emily Smith What is faith? Faith is something different to everyone. If you asked a hundred different people, it is possible that you would get many diverse answers. Religious faith and non-religious faith are two very distinct terms. Faith holds an extremely complex meaning when discussing it in the context of religion. Faith is a belief. That holds true to every religious and non-religious person. Every faith involves a decision. It is not about what we claim to believe, but what we actually do believe, that is true faith. Throughout this paper, I am going to discuss Christian faith, how it pertains to daily life and Christianity as a whole. I also intend to ...

  • In Our Time The Nick Adams Stories Were My Favorite Of The Collection Because I Got To Know Nick Through The Reading I Starte - 373 words
    In Our Time The Nick Adams stories were my favorite of the collection because I got to know Nick through the reading. I started to understand Nick and I could anticipate the actions and feelings that he was feeling. I am not sure if this is because I became familiar with Nick or because I have done many of the things Nick has done and was able to understand what he was doing. "Big Two-Hearted River: Part I and II" were the most enjoyable short stories of the ones I read. The language that Hemingway uses is ideally suited for describing Nick's activities by the river. Hemingway's simple declarative sentences are all that is needed to convey the wonderful scene of Nick struggling with his pack ...

  • Child Observation Report - 1,273 words
    Child Observation Report Robert Reitz Dev. Psych Dr. Trimble 4/13/00 Child Observation Report For this project, I observed my mother's preschool class for three hours, and three kids that she baby-sits on weekends for three hours. Most of the kids that are in the preschool class were three years old, but there was one five year old. The kids I helped baby-sit were two twin three year old girls, and one five year old. When I first arrived at the preschool, the kids seemed very shy towards me and they did not seem like they were very sociable. I was a stranger to them, and I would have to guess that all of the children were experiencing a little bit of stranger anxiety. I talked to my mother a ...
