- Plato - 1,175 words
Plato The most comprehensive statement of Platos mature philosophical views appears in The Republic, an extended approach to the most fundamental principles for the conduct of human nature. Using the character Socrates as a fictional spokesman, Plato considers the nature and value of justice and the other virtues as they appear both in the structure of society as a whole, and in the personality of an individual human being. This naturally leads to discussions of human nature, the achievement of knowledge, the distinction between appearance and reality, the components of an effective education, and the foundations of morality. Plato formulates a conception of the complexity of psychological m ...

- Rotator Cuff - 1,043 words
Rotator Cuff It is often difficult to tell where concepts actually begin. It is certainly not obvious who first used the term rotator or musculotendinous cuff. Credit for first describing ruptures of this structure is often given to J. G. Smith, who in 1834 described the occurrence of tendon ruptures after shoulder injury in the London Medical Gazette. (Smith, 1834) In 1924 Meyer published his attrition theory of cuff ruptures. (Meyer, 1924) In his 1934 classic monograph, Codman summarized his 25 years of observations on the musculotendinous cuff and its components and discussed ruptures of the supraspinatus tendon. (Codman, 1934b) Beginning 10 years after the publication of Codman's book an ...

- Sexual Harassment - 1,515 words
Sexual Harassment Over the years, many people have believed that the issue of sexual harassment should not be discussed in public. Sexual harassment was to be discussed behind closed doors.

- Story Writing Helper - 429 words
Story Writing Helper There are lots of people in the story, so it is sort of hard to follow. In the beginning there is an introduction where the author tells what a hobbit is. This introduction gives the general background, which makes the story easier to understand. The plot development in the middle isn't complicated. The ending is expected since the author gives hints about it. As in the introduction when he says that the hobbit would gain something, this means he doesn't die. The last climax takes a long time to occur, the fight between good and evil. After the climax there is the long trip home. It is really boring since there is nothing to expect and the reader knows that the hobbit w ...

- Subtlety Plays A Most Significant Role In The Setting Of The Lottery The Setting Set Forth By Shirley Jackson In The Beginnin - 736 words
Subtlety plays a most significant role in the setting of "The Lottery." The setting set forth by Shirley Jackson in the beginning of the short story creates a mood of peacefulness and tranquillity. It also creates a visual image in the mind of the reader, the image of a typical town on a normal summer day. Shirley Jackson effectively uses setting in "The Lottery" to foreshadow an ironic ending. This is developed through a description of the physical setting, a general description of the residents, subtle hints throughout the story and the names of the main characters. These concepts all give the reader a better understanding of the setting and therefore a more enjoyable read. Shirley Jackson ...

... ics38. Thus did they believe a dilution of desirable traits evolved even more diluted desirable traits - these traits now decidedly muted. It was more than two decades after Darwin's death that Mendelian theory of the gene finally came to light at the turn of the century39. Because of this initial scepticism with Darwin's natural selection, when Mendel's work became widely available biologists emphasized the importance of mutation over selection in evolution. Early Mendelian geneticists believe that continuous variation (such features as body size) hardly factored in the formation of new species - perhaps nothing to do with genetic control. Inferences on the gradual divergence of populat ...

- The Influence Of Religion On Humankind Can Be Traced Back To The First Records Of History Religion Has Served As A Pillar Of - 1,312 words
