- 1 Andy Grove And His Role In Intels Success - 1,738 words
1. Andy Grove and his role in Intels Success When I think of Intel, I think of Andrew Grove. That may be due to my age, and the fact that I was too young in 1968 to know that Gordon Moore and Robert Noyce, pioneers in the semiconductor industry, had left Fairchild Semiconductor to form Intel Corporation. But I believe that my association of Grove with Intel is due more to the tremendous influence that he has had on the company as the official and unofficial overseer of Intels internal operations from the beginning. Even though he did not join Intels executive committee until 1976, and did not become CEO until 1987, it is clear that he has been the leader at Intel since the beginning. He has ...

- Abstract Expressionism - 1,560 words
Abstract Expressionism "What about the reality of the everyday world and the reality of painting? They are not the same realities. What is this creative thing that you have struggled to get and where did it come from? What reference or value does it have, outside of the painting itself?" Ad Reinhardt, in a group discussion at Studio 35, in 1950. My essay starts with the origin and the birth of this great expression in the twentieth century. This movement not only touched painting, it had an affect on various aspects of art- poetry, architecture, theater, film, photography. Vasily Kandinsky, Kazimir Malevich and Piet Mondrian are considered to be the pioneer artists to have achieved a truly a ...

- Computer Monitoring - 747 words
Computer Monitoring Computer Monitoring is most often intended to improve efficiency and effectiveness in the workplace, but with good intentions comes the opportunity for abuse by employers and employees alike. An example of both can be found in an article taken from The Futurist. Kristen Bell De Tienne's composition " Big Brother or Friendly Giant: Computer Monitoring in the 21st Century" is an exceptional observation as to what the future may hold for those people choosing to enter the technological field such as industry, commerce, medicine and science. As Computer Monitoring increases there comes a concern for the types of effects it may have in the workplace. According to DeTienne, "By ...

- Eschatology Of The End: According To Revelations - 1,101 words
Eschatology Of The End: According To Revelations Eschatology of the End: According to Revelations What happens to us all when we die or when the universe comes to an end? Is it all just over? Does history proceed with a purpose? If so what is the culmination of that purpose? Everyone from scientist to theologians agree that the world as we know it will eventually end? The question I want to address is does that eschatological moment, or end mean the destruction of the earth with fire and brimstone or is does a more glorious end await us? Is there a possibility of an alternative end, without the desolation some have used to describe it? If one looks deep enough maybe some of these answers can ...

... d times of Revelations. The Futurists believe that Johns Revelations brings all of these past decrees found in other scriptures to an ultimate end. For the futurist, the depth of understanding of the consummation of this age that Revelation provides is sublime. Nevertheless, as stated, Eschatological concepts are expressed in many other passages of scripture. Revelation further contributes to an understanding of Scripture by bringing these diverse strands into a tight, cohesive whole.Futurists plead that Daniel referred to the Antichrist when he spoke of a prince to come who would destroy the city and the sanctuary and bring about desolation (Daniel 9:26). The apostle Paul also spoke of ...

- Futurism - 980 words
Futurism During the first decade of the twentieth century, a group of young Italian painters united together, under the influence of poet Filippo Tommaso Marinetti. Before creating their new style, these painters embraced the ideas of Marinettis The Foundation and Manisfesto of Futurism which appeared in the newspaper Le Figaro on February 20, 1909 (Tisdall 7). His manifesto of futurism was primarily concerned with peotry, but artists such as Boccioni, Balla, and Severini used his ideas and applied them to painting and sculpture. The Museum of Modern Art holds Umberto Boccionis Dynamism of a Soccer Player, 1913, a fine example of the Futurist vision. In his Futurist Painting: A Technical Man ...

Genetic Engineering A girl is born without Tay-Sachs disease, a devasting genetic disorder that has decimated a lot of babies worldwide. A leukemia patient has defective bone marrow replaced with healthy bone marrow that was cloned from tissue from her own cells.

Genetic engineering can be used to make many aspects of human life better, including saving lives. The rapid development of humanitys ability to control the gene will eventually lead to a promising future for the entire planet as a ...

... A scandalized contemporary critic declared Matisse and his fellow artistsAndr Derain, Maurice de Vlaminck, and Georges Braque (of France), and Kees van Dongen (of the Netherlands)to be fauves (French for wild beasts). This derogatory term became the name of their movement. Fauvism lasted only from about 1898 to 1908, but it had an enduring impact on 20th-century art. [ ] B. Cubism [ ] Print section [ ] Pablo Picasso, a friend and rival of Matisse, also invented a new style of painting, focusing mainly on line rather than color. Picasso's art changed radically around 1907, when he decided to incorporate some stylistic elements of African sculpture into his paintings. Unlike Matisse's plea ...

... f that family. So the functional integration of the single parent family can exist in the conflict theory, but the determination of that childs outcome has its reliance on the social class from whence it came from (Mills 1). Through the rationale of symbolic interactionism, relies on individuality. The institution of a family in this perspective is important because it can provide the background for culture, humanism, power, and character. Yet, symbolic interactionism does not believe that the institution of the family is the complete basis of all knowledge, but rather "the significance of the relationship to the human conduct is nevertheless a by-product of interaction with others" (Blu ...

- Polytheism: God Is Dead By Nietzsche - 1,344 words
Polytheism: God Is Dead By Nietzsche Reproduced, with permission, from THE FUTURIST, Published by the World Future Society, 7910 Woodmont Avenue, Suite 450, Bethesda, Maryland 20814 Toward the end of the nineteenth century, the German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche wrote a fictional account of a madman who went about the town proclaiming that God is dead. Nietzsche's story is illustrative of a wave of atheism that spread through the intellectual circles of Europe in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, but that never caught on in society at large. The idea of the divine demise, however, did not die: A movement by theologians resurrected Nietzsche's thesis in the 1960s, amidst ...

... edom and self-government obviated the need for the traditional supreme ruler God. Today, a new set of ideas that may influence concepts of God are entering popular consciousness. Two major concepts to imbue modern thinking come from science: the ideas of evolution in biology and of relativity in physics. We can call these the Darwinian and Einsteinian insights, although they extend well beyond the theories of Charles Darwin and Albert Einstein. A fundamental idea behind evolution is that all things are constantly changing, that nothing stays the same. For some, this idea sparks the need to reaffirm an image of God who is unchanging and eternal. But this would make God an exception to the ...

... tress to survive, to kill the mastodons and live for another season. We really have not changed all that much. Today's workplace requires us to give our best as often as possible. James Kouzes feels that Opportunities to challenge the status quo and introduce change opens the doors to doing one's best. Challenge is the motivation environment for excellence (Kouzes, Posner 39). The only exception that needs to be brought out by that is that we need to give people a change to get used to the changes before we introduce more. The major reason for stress is when you do not allow for the adjustment period in-between major changes. Stress has gotten a bad name. Stress of all kinds is good ---- ...

Alexander seems to have an extremely eclectic background -- he received a PhD. in Thanatology (the study of death and near-death experiences) from Georgetown University under the tutelage of the celebrated Dr. Elisabeth Kubler-Ross. Apparently, Alexander is a "mind-control" junkie, having studied everything from Silva Mind Control, to a stint in a Buddhist monastery. When the National Research Council issued its findings that there was no evidence of paranormal phenomena, Alexander wrote a critique of the report that was both passionate and eloquent. In this rebuttal, he compared the report's apparent a priori conclusions to the C ...

... to Alaskans, the west was actually the south, they can realize the bearings of how the elite in society determine what is learned. By not falling victim to these same misconceptions, students can better make unprejudiced decisions about those around them. Another important aspect students need to realize is that knowledge alone isn't enough to shape a society. The members themselves have to be willing to put forth the time and effort and show an interest in shaping their society in order for it to benefit all people. While generally opposed to the idea, Francis Ryan points out that "Multicultural education programs indeed may be helpful for all students in developing perspective-taking ...

- The Time Machine - 1,132 words
The Time Machine The Time Machine Let me start off this essay by saying that I believe H.G.(Herbert George) Wells is one of the most intelligent writers of his time: a true futurist. Obviously, I read The Time Machine by H.G. Wells and I would like to say that it was extremely well written and sounds as though it was written fairly recently. It may just sound this way because the human race has not really tried Time Traveling. The theme of The Time Traveler is, as I see it: Think about what you are doing before doing it. The Time Traveler should have thought his journey through and taken precautions for everything that could possibly go wrong, or right for that matter. If he had done this, I ...
