  • Elmer Gantry - 617 words
    Elmer Gantry The majority of all books are trash. Sinclair Lewis Elmer Gantry is a great book because it has credibility, a timeless theme, and it has the necessary action. Any book that can do that is a great book. The credibility of Elmer Gantry is something that will keep this book eternally great. Although the actual time period is dated, the plot is not dated. Most people can relate to the different characters in the book. Elmer is a pompous football player who thinks that he is higher than any religion. However, people try, and successfully convert him. He attempts to please two masters at first: his vices and God. He eventually makes the decision to live by God, but of course he will ...

Eareckson also began using time-delayed fuses on his bombs that prevented the bombs from exploding under the low flying aircraft that had just dropped its ordnance (Garfield 106). His experiences in Alaska were to contribute significantly to the air war in the Pacific. Having flown in the worst weather imaginable, Col. Eareckson was more than capable of handling a few enemy fighters. Another unique aspect of the war in Alaska was the Lend -Lease program. The Lend- Lease program was established to send supplies and equipment to the embat ...

  • Cloning Process - 1,220 words
    Cloning Process Cloning, the process of creating a copy of a plant or animal that is genetically identical to the original through asexual means, has sparked some interesting moral and ethical debate. For years, cloning has been used to produce a greater number of a specific type of plant, such as the Macintosh apple trees, which have all been derived from single mutated plant . Now, however, upon the discovery of a method to clone animals, even humans, people are beginning to become aware of the benefits and consequences of cloning, as well as the ethics involved.

    'Dem Cotton Pickin' Okies Not only stock markets were affected by the Depression. The farming society may have been the ones who suffered the most. Not only their section in the bank had been destroyed, but also the dust had eaten up their homes, work place, and places of entertainment! When dust storms hit no one knew what the 1,000 feet high, black dust clouds were. Some thought life was ending, and others thought it was judgment day. This phenomenon was caused by the drought, which lead to the decline of farmers. The soil turned bad, and caused the Dust Bowl. The residents of the Midwest had to deal with this very dilemma and it was not easy at all. For the most part, families stayed in t ...

  • Gentic Engineering - 410 words
    Gentic Engineering 1 http://www.denison.edu/~griffi rp/paper.htm Genetic diversity is precious and should not be touched, even with the overwhelming temptation to do so. The gathering of genetic knowledge does not guarantee wisdom in deciding about human diversity. (Suzuki, Genethics, 345-346) A generalization must, then, occur. Every decision involves human beings as the decision makers and these persons must live with the consequences. Also, most decisions involve choices between different outcomes and humans are likely to place different values on different outcomes. (Kieffer, Bioethics, 45) For human beings, the ethical drawbacks of genetic engineering overpower the benefits. 2 http://ww ...

Her eloquent testimony before the committee altered the views of many government officials an ...
