  • Alcohol And The Effects On Behavior - 1,596 words
    Alcohol And The Effects On Behavior Alcohol and The Effects on Behavior The articles in which I reviewed dealt with alcoholism and the many different effects it has on behavior. The purpose for each experiment differs, but they all deal whit alcohol and the effects of its behavior. In each of the articles used to complete this research a comparison was mead between people who had been affected by alcoholism to people who had not. The reason for this was to see if alcohol had any effect on an individuals behavior. In the first study which was done by Wright et. Al, they tested to see if non-adult children of alcoholics (ACAs) who were college students differ from nonclinical ACA college stude ...

  • Battle Of Bunker Hill - 1,010 words
    Battle Of Bunker Hill The Battle of Bunker Hill - 17 JUN 1775 Following the events in Massachusetts at Lexington and Concord, April 19, 1775, state militiamen from Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island and Vermont gathered in Cambridge and the area surrounding Boston. British General Gage and 6,500 soldiers and marines were in possession of Boston proper, while the American force consisted of over 16,000 men. Sickness and missing brought the number of available soldiers closer to 9,000. In addition the American force was extremely short of gunpowder, having only some 30 or so half barrels of powder beyond that carried in the horns of the citizen soldiers. In the two months following Conco ...

  • Dna - 1,551 words
    Dna DNA evidence is extremely helpful in criminal trials not only because it can determine the guilt of a suspect, but also because it can keep innocent people from going to jail. The suspect must leave a sample of their DNA at the crime scene in order for testing to occur, but DNA can be found in the form of many things such as semen, blood, hair, saliva, or skin scrapings. According to Newsweek, "thousands of people have been convicted by DNA's nearly miraculous ability to search out suspects across space and time ... hundreds of innocent people have also been freed, often after years behind bars, sometimes just short of the death chamber" (Adler ). Though some may think it is a waste of t ...

  • Erotica V Pornography - 1,333 words
    Erotica V. Pornography Cages. Consider a birdcage. If you look very closely at just one wire in the cage, you cannot see the other wires. If your conception of what is before you is determined by this myopic focus, you could look at that one wire, up and down the length of it, and be unable to see why a bird would not just fly around the wire anytime it wanted to go somewhere. It is only when you step back, stop looking at the wires one by oneand take a macroscopic view of the whole cage, that you can see why the bird does not go anywhere; and then you will see it in a moment. It will require no great subtlety of mental powers. It is perfectly obvious that the bird is surrounded by a network ...

  • Father Son And Holy Spirit - 856 words
    Father Son And Holy Spirit The last line of the Lords prayer is, "In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit." It is a key line in the Christian religion. The intention of this is reminding one of where we came from and to thank Jesus Christ for giving his life to remove humanities sin. There are many key points in the Bible that tells us how we came to be, reminding us everyday to be thankful for what God has done for us. The Bible is one thing that held in high esteem with many people with stories of earths origin, centered in their beliefs in creationism. The Theory of creationism has no true time for when it founded but has been part of many peoples lives lifes from the very ...

    ... y Orwell as the “Political book...a sort of enlarged pamphlet combining history with political critiscism”. Orwell came to believe that Homage to Catalonia was the best book he had ever written. During winter in 1938, Orwell wrote his sixth novel Coming Up for Air. It is the discovery of George Bowling, that his boy-hood home has changed like everything else. It is regarded as his best novel (with the exception of Animal Farm and Nineteen Eighty-Four). It illustrates in great detail, the fact that everything peacefull eventually becomes corupt. After Coming Up for Air, Orwell wrote one of his most-loved novels, Animal Farm. It is the “fairy story” of an animal revolut ...

  • King Lear And Cordelia Death - 1,282 words
    King Lear And Cordelia Death King Lear is a tragedy unlike any other written by William Shakespeare. It focuses on the psychological downfall of a powerful King. It proves that as long as a nation has a king on the throne all is well, but as soon as a king steps off the throne nothing but chaos transpires. The downfall of the king results in the downfall of the kingdom. More importantly, it focuses on the relationship between parent and child. This is proven in two plots with the most important being the relationship between Cordelia and King Lear. Lear goes through a period of great mental instability in which he gives up his throne, gives up his daughter Cordelia, and also gives up his san ...

  • The 1960s - 1,315 words
    The 1960s Luke Laubaugh 3-11-99 research paper rough draft The 1960s was a decade that forever changed the culture and society of America. The 1960s were widely known as the decade of peace and love, not because the world had become a utopia but, in my opinion, because of the heavy use of the popular hallucinogenic drugs by the American youth. In reality minorities were struggling to gain freedom from segregation and thousands of American soldiers and Vietnamese civilians were being killed in the highly disputed war in Vietnam. On February 20, 1960 four black college freshmen from the Negro Agricultural and Technical College in Greensboro, North Carolina quietly walked into a restaurant and ...

  • The Ending Of King Lear - 1,051 words
    The Ending Of King Lear Few Shakespearean plays have caused the controversy that is found with King Lears ending scenes. Othello kills himself, Macbeth is executed, and of course in hamlet, everyone dies. Lear, however, is different from other Shakespearean classics. Is Lear mad or lucid? Is Cordelia really dead? Is Edmunds delay explainable? What is the nature of the Lear world that occasioned all of this? How does Knights thesis relate to the ending? Critical commentary varies and appears exhaustive. Bradley speaks of evil, but thinks Lear dies in a moment of supreme joy; Knight argues that however vicious and cruel the Lear world is, the death of Cordelia represents the future triumph of ...

    ... least Lear thinks so, making Bradleys thesis at least plausible. Comparing the final words of Romeo and Juliet with Lear may help to resolve this issue. The Prince, absolving the Friar of his part, notes, A glooming peace this morning with it brings. The sun for sorrow will not show his head. Go hence, to have more talk of these sad things (V, iii, 305-307) Albany (or Edgar) says: The weight of this sad time we must obey; Speak what we feel, not what we ought to say. (V, iii, 322-323) Both ending suggest further discourse. In Romeo and Juliet, what circumstances bring about the horrors? The Sonnet Prologue speaks of star crossed lovers but in Lear, Edmund dismisses such as superstitious ...

As Northrop Frye states in his review, ". . . in this play there doesn't seem to be the clearly marked villain that we find in so many tragedies." (Frye 28) This paper presents the facts that prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that Frye's assertion is correct because the definition of a villain is a wicked or vile person. Mercutio, the nurse, Tybalt, and Romeo like a red herring seem like villains and could trick careless readers into believing that they are villains. Mercutio's wit overshadows his violent side. "O calm, dishonorable, vile submission! Alla stoca carries it away. Ty ...

  • William Blakes Relevance To The Modern World - 745 words
    William BlakeS Relevance To The Modern World William Blakes Relevance to the Modern World William Blake, who lived in the latter half of the eighteenth century and the early part of the nineteenth, was a profoundly stirring poet who was, in large part, responsible for bringing about the Romantic movement in poetry; was able to achieve remarkable results with the simplest means; and was one of several poets of the time who restored rich musicality to the language (Appelbaum v). His research and introspection into the human mind and soul has resulted in his being called the Columbus of the psyche, and because no language existed at the time to describe what he discovered on his voyages, he cre ...

In Northrop a point of fact is made; Caesar influences the whole play, for he appears after his death as a blood stained corpse and as a ghost before battle (Northrop 28). Both Brutes and Cassias dying are conscious of Caesar; both men even speak to Caesar as if he were present. In other ways Julius Caesar is shaped differently from the histories and tragedies that precede, as if in manner as in subject matter Shakespeare was making decisive changes (Northrop 33). The scene moves only from Rome to the battlefield, and with this new setting, language becomes more restrained, firmer and sharper. Extensive descriptive images are few, and single words such as Roman, ...
