  • Fear: A Good Thing Or Bad Thing - 1,750 words
    Fear: A Good Thing Or Bad Thing FEAR: A GOOD OR BAD THING? A whole new environment was thrown at the young boy all of a sudden. He had never seen such different people, or so many people altogether. He had reached high school. Before this, he had gone to a small public school, which only consisted of about the number of people in one class in high school, and some classes even surpassed the amount in the entire school. He wasn't sure what to do, where to go; his mind was in a state of blankness. His palms were sweating, along with the rest of his body because of all the beautiful girls he had never seen before; in addition, to make all these matters worse, he was a shy guy. This quiet young ...

    ... ly maintains throughout the course of the story. The last words of the book reinforce this continued loathing- " 'And only Kurimoto is left.' As if spitting out all the accumulated venom on the woman he took for his enemy, Kikuji hurried into the shade of the park." I think that it can safely be concluded that this is one aspect of his past that Kikuji will never change his position on. As Chikako cleans the cottage, "The sound of her broom became the sound of a broom sweeping the contents of his skull, and her cloth polishing the veranda a cloth rubbing at his skull." This extraordinary metaphor gives us great insight into Kikuji's attitude towards his past and his memories. There are t ...

  • A New Nation - 874 words
    A New Nation A New Nation Begins A City on a Hill Lipset Starting things off, Lipset seems to be a very articulate man. His views on this beautiful country are exactly down to earth. Lipset began talking about how this country is the best in some areas but how we lack our supremacy in other areas. For instance I will express crime rate and military power. In Lipsets passage he stated that the crime rate in the United States is well above all other nations, but the American military is the strongest in the world. That is not a contradiction but only a mere example. Now with being the strongest military power in the world many smaller and third world countries tend to look up to us. That state ...

  • A Reflection On Paul Hindemith - 1,231 words
    A Reflection On Paul Hindemith Paul Hindemith was revolutionary and a musical genius. Many people who lived around the same time saw him as nothing more than an untalented noisemaker. Granted, these people didnt have all of the various forms of music that we have today, but untalented would not be a word I would use to describe Paul Hindemith. He helped begin the last great change in classical music from the Romantic Era, which was very tonal and diatonic, to 20th Century Modern Music, which is extremely atonal. Diatonic means within in the key. In other words, everything sounds nice and pretty. There are no weird noises, no funny pitches. Atonal itself is defined as the avoidance of the tra ...

  • A Report On The Novel 1984, By George Orwell - 991 words
    A Report on the novel 1984, by George Orwell The Importance of 1984 1984 was a very important book. First, it helped show where communism was headed, and helped create repulsion towards Communism. Before this book (and Animal Farm) a lot of people thought Communism was a good thing. The major mainstream generally neutral about it, but this book really opened up and showed what a bad idea it was, because it showed where communism was headed, not a place where everyone was equal, but a place that was once that and evolved into a horrible totalitarian government that could never be toppled. Second, I'm not sure whether this book could last for years for generations to enjoy. Although I hope it ...

  • A Thinker - 681 words
    A Thinker annon One of the oddest progression of life is probably when someone is growing up. All those memories of failures which you hope could be thrown into the garbage can like a piece of paper and all those memories of successes which you hope could be saved on a c omputer like a piece of hard disk turns into endless thoughts similar to that of a math problem which the equation contains the variable infinity. I am more of a thinker than accomplisher. Due to this problem it usually takes me longer to do my homework t han the other kids. I remember in elementary school my fifth grade teacher used to say, 'If you think while you write everything would be easier for you.' Such as for this ...

  • Abortion And Chrisiananity - 895 words
    Abortion And Chrisiananity Abortion The Christian belief in the sanctity of life is based on the teachings of famous Christians and on what they read in the bible, the teachings of Jesus. A quote from the bible which seems to support the view that abortion is wrong is from Psalm 139:13, verses 15-16: You created every part of me; you put me together in my mother's womb When my bones were being formed, Carefully put me together in my mother's womb. When I was growing there in secret, You knew that I was there -You saw me before I was born. The days allotted to me Had all been recorded in your book, before any of them ever began. This seems to be saying that god has already begun to have an in ...

He also erected a statue of himself, although he did not even die, let alone in first charge. This was a strange gesture that would never be repeated again. 2,000 of Memnon's mercenaries survived. After the battle they were chained like lions and sent back to forced labor, probably in the mines. This was not a very placatory gesture by Alexander. The reason he gave for it was that "they had violated Greek public opinion by fighting with the Orientals against the Greeks." After his victory, Alexander went across ...

They are all pretty much on the same note, but with different alterations. For me, I believe that it is to make connections between the past and how it will impact the future. American Studies has transformed overtime. Each individual has their own beliefs and feelings of what it really means. In Gene Wise's article he states how he is interested in how the field of American Studies has transformed overtime, what American Studies methodology is, and the types of questions that American Studies practitioners ask.

People were constantly finding tires and metal to contribute to the war effort. One of the greatest aspects of World War 2 was the unity of all the people of the United States. Everyone was united in helping to fight this war and having freedom reign over tyranny. Now a days people are spoiled, wasteful and all about themselves. During the war, another great aspect was the role of women in America. Before the war women were just seen as housewives, teachers, secretaries or any other stereotypical view of femal ...

A dysfunctional family is one that fails to meet some or all the basic needs of its members. Sometimes these needs, such as food, shelter or clothing are so basic that people take them for granted. More often, emotional needs, such as the need for love, support and security go unmet. Although a family can be dysfunctional in several ways there are some characteristics that occur more often than others. Drugs, alcoholism, death, abandonment, starvation and anxiety are some examples of dysfunctional characteristics that can be found in both Angelas Ashe ...
