  • About The 70s - 521 words
    About The 70'S Tonight I will be speaking about one of the most controversial eras of our time. The 70s. When terms like Pardy Hardy! Goin' Cruizin' Right On! ROCK ON!! and Shake your Booty were getting used in everyday conversation. Guys wore their hair long and in afros. Pet rocks were a kids best friend, and mood rings let you know if someone was feeling down. 8 tracks had came and gone, with cassette tapes taking over in a hurry. For the weekend fun, disco clubs were the place to be. If you didnt feel like dancing, cruising the highway while on your CB radio was the alternative, that was if the gas shortage wasnt to bad. You wouldnt have been alarmed if you saw a crazed naked guy running ...

  • Animal Cruelty - 1,051 words
    Animal Cruelty Jeff Albrecht Joseph Aimone Writing and Rhetoric 13 December 2000 Animal Cruelty One of the most touchy aspects of our relationship with animals is the use of animals in laboratory sciences. Some manufactures of cosmetics and household products still conduct painful and useless tests on live animals, even though no law requires them not to. Some people, called anti-vivisectionists, are at one extreme in their concern. They want an abolition of all experiments on live animals. At the other extreme there are those who say that it is quite all right for us to do whatever we like to animals. They say that God gave us such a right, since it is written in the bible (Genesis 1:26) th ...

    Chinese Medicine Acupuncture, Qigong, and Chinese Medicine Stephen Barrett, M.D. Chinese medicine, often called Oriental medicine or traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), encompasses a vast array of folk medical practices based on mysticism.

Traditional acupuncture, as now practiced, involves the insertion of stainless steel needles into various body areas. A low-frequency current may be applied t ...

  • Classes: Then And Now - 519 words
    Classes: Then And Now Classes: Then and Now Looking back on it all now, I can see how much easier classes were in High School than College. Who would have thought that College would be this much harder; I mean you get to pick your classes and you even are allowed to take them at your chosen time. Sounds easy huh? Well, its not. As a matter of fact College is a lot harder than one might think. Your classes are a lot harder because youre in a higher level of learning. Also, the curriculum requires a lot more studying to be done in order to pass the class; and if thats not enough, the instructors treat you like an adult, rather than a child. I would guess that a lot of students, who make the tr ...

  • Dantes Inferno Is A Strange Journey Through Hell, Which At Times Seems Familiar But Then Sometimes Seems Unexpected As An Ame - 659 words
    Dante's Inferno is a strange journey through hell, which at times seems familiar but then sometimes seems unexpected. As an American and a Christian it is possible to think that my opinion on this could be crafted from my religion and our society, particularly its media. In my mind I see hell as this place of immense torment bestowed on sinners. My faith has taught me that those who sin go to hell to be punished. Dante's adventure clearly shows that the souls of hell are punished, as I thought. Punishments range from living in filth to painful tortures. What my religion or any movies or television shows I've seen mentioned is the idea of a hierarchy. The idea of hell being made up of circles ...

  • Foreign Trade In 90s - 1,055 words
    Foreign Trade In 90s The advances of the technological revolution have molded the evolution of the United States foreign trade in the 1990s and into the new millennium. Globalization has become the credo for the Clinton administration, and the booming American economy has done nothing but strongly bolster this approach. Globalizations foothold in American policy really began in the much-debated North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), which was finally passed in 1994. NAFTA specifically said one of its goals was to "contribute to the harmonious development and expansion of world trade and provide a catalyst to broader international cooperation".

  • Human Rights In China - 1,313 words
    Human Rights In China One of the first things that come to mind about human rights in China would most likely be the Tiananmen Square massacre, where in 1989 hundreds of student protestors lost their lives to the People's Republic of China. The bloody body of a dead student removed from the street right after the Tiananmen Square crackdown on June 4, 1989. Web page http://www.rjgeib.com/thoughts/china/china.html The name People's Republic of China seems a contradiction of its meaning. If indeed its name is the People's Republic of China than why did it massacre peaceful protestors with tanks and machine guns? But the Chinese government argues that the force was necessary for maintaining a na ...

  • Julius Caesar Summary - 1,958 words
    Julius Caesar Summary Act I, Scene i Summary Two patricians Flavius and Marcullus enter. They are confused by the fact that the plebeians are not in their work clothes, and begin to ask some plebeians what their jobs are. A carpenter admits he is a carpenter. Next Marcullus asks a cobbler what his job is, and the cobbler answers in a series of puns ("souls" / "soles"), ("withal" / "with awl"). The cobbler explains that everyone is taking the day off to celebrate Caesar's victory over Pompey. Marcullus, in high rhetoric, insults the plebeians for being fickle, since they very recently all liked Pompey. He tells them all to go back home and feel very sorry for dishonoring Pompey's memory. The ...

  • King Lear - 1,699 words
    King Lear In the play King Lear there are many characters and they all have their own roles. Some roles are more obvious than others. The one that catches my attention the most is the role of the Fool. In the dictionary the definition of a fool is someone who lacks sense or judgement. Does the Fool lack sense or judgement? Or is he the opposite and everyone just perceives him as a fool. These questions come down into one ultimate question, was the Fool a madman or a prophet. Personally I think that he was a prophet. The Fool knew every outcome of the King's decisions. Since the Fool was not taken seriously everyone just disregarded him. This leads me to believe that the Fool was not as fooli ...

A strong citadel it was indeed, and not to be taken by a host of enemies, if there were any within that could hold weapons; unless some foe could come behind and scale the lower skirts of Mindolluin, and so come upon the narrow shoulder that joined the Hill of Guard to the mountain mass. But that shoulder, which rose to the height of the fifth wall, was hedged with great ramparts right up to the precipice that overhung its western end; and in that space stood the houses and domed tombs of bygone kings and lords, for ever silent between the mountain and the towe ...

    Socrates In Plato`S The Republic At the end of Book II in Benjamin Jowett's translation of The Republic, Socrates began a detailed description of the construction of a good city.
