  • Enigma Of Death - 1,633 words
    Enigma Of Death "Pale Death with impartial tread beats at the poor man's cottage door and at the palaces of kings." Horace (Quintus Horatius Flaccus, 65-8 B.C.) Death eventually comes to everyone, and yet it is a phenomenon shrouded in mystery. Scholars and scientists try to understand it, philosophers pose theories and conclusions about it, artists try to capture it between streaks of paint across a canvas, while poets like Emily Dickinson explore it's meaning and influence through verse. Death is like an outward rush into the unknown where there is nothing recognizable and nothing to cling to. The unknown is always feared, and since nothing is known about death or an afterlife, people fear ...

  • 30year Treasury Bond - 1,120 words
    30-Year Treasury Bond Once considered the linchpin of the government securities market, the United States Treasurys 30-year bond is losing its place as the credit markets bellwether as traders and investors shirt their attention to the shorter-term notes. The bond market is struggling to establish what the new benchmark is, said Ward McCarthy at Stone & McCarthy Research Associates in Princeton, NJ.

  • Albinism - 1,236 words
    Albinism INTRODUCTION For my research project I have chosen the genetic disease albinism. There are a few reasons why I chose albinism as my topic. First and foremost, in kindergarten I had a friend who was an albino, and although I have not seen him in over 10 years I am still curious as to what the causes of albinism are. Back then, my mother explained it to me by saying, thats just the way his skin is which is a fine way to explain it to a five year old, but now I find myself wanting to know more. Another reason I am curious about albinism actually extends from my first reason. I often wondered if there was any chance that my kids could possibly be born with it. I know now that it sounds ...

  • Arthur Miller And View From The Bridge - 730 words
    Arthur Miller And View From The Bridge My initial reaction to the play was absolutely hideous, and my malcontent was vibrant. I felt that reading A View From The Bridge was a tedious waste of time and that the play itself was a trivial piece of literature. I found the play to be neither intriguing nor interesting in the tiniest fashion. The only aspect that I found mildly intriguing was the character of the protagonist, Eddie Carbone, as it miraculously appealed to my passion for psychology. Unfortunately, this enigma of Eddies constitution only guided me through the first act, where after, I was completely annoyed and jaded. The two-act horror is centered on the self-delusion of Eddie Carbo ...

  • Beloved - 1,627 words
    Beloved By Toni Morrison "It is the ultimate gesture of a loving mother. It is the outrageous claim of a slave"(Morrison 1987). These are the words that Toni Morrison used to describe the actions of the central character within the novel, Beloved.

Sethe's action is indisputable: She has killed her child. Sethe's motivation is not so clearly defined. By killing her "Beloved" child, has Sethe acted out of true love or selfish pride? The fact that Sethe's act is irration ...

  • Causes Of The Civil War - 1,608 words
    Causes Of The Civil War Origins of the Civil War Partisan politics have been an American institution since the days of George Washington and Thomas Jefferson. During the youth of the new nation, political parties were often divided over issues such as the constitution and government, but during the nineteenth century problems arose that had never plagued America before. Ideas of the abolition of slavery and secession from the Union cut political lines right down the middle and made politics and economics a battle between the North and the South. With no compromise in sight, tensions rose and the thoughts of a more perfect union began to crumble. When blame is sought for the cause of the Civi ...
