- Alec Guinness - 1,318 words
Alec Guinness Alec Guinness writes My Name Escapes Me - The Diary of a Retiring Actor - in purpose of documentation of his performance to commit his story to the public record. In the diary, Alec Guinness, at 82, shows his wishes to spend his declining years as, "a retiring actor"; he has not done with acting; he is still performing; yet retiring. This time his performance is committed to words in the commissioned diary. I see a diary as documentation of one's life, especially when it is to be shown to public. By definition, a document is a"formal paper bearing important or official information". In the same sense, Alec Guinnesss diary is a document of his "act" of writing as Paul Matthew Pi ...

This is especially true of younger evangelicals, for example, who tend to share society's view that a working mother can have just as secure a relationship with a child as a mother who does not work. A culture of traditional, shared meanings is strained by the explosion of new symbols generated by modernity and supported by the mass media. Words traditionally deemed to be profane or vulgar are now commonplace. Even the accepted definitions of life and death have been reinterpreted by modern symbolic meanings.

- Communism East Europe - 2,955 words
... a contributing factor to the collapse of communism in Eastern Europe. If a party has not got the support of a majority, then it has a weak political basis. The fact that undemocratic means were used to ensure that the communists came to, and then maintained, power shows that communism was a political failure. Throughout the history of communism in Russia, never once did the party gain a majority support or truly succeed in suppressing public demonstrations of antipathy towards communism. It can therefore be argued that a political leadership with no political basis or support could ever hope to survive. Another important factor to note is communisms utter failure in relation to society a ...

- Egyption Tomb 5 - 1,832 words
Egyption Tomb 5 Early Western Civilization Egyption Tomb 5 Egyptologists had lost interest in the site of tomb 5, which had been explored and looted decades ago. Therefore, they wanted to give way to a parking lot. However, no one would have ever known the treasure that lay only 200 ft. from King Tuts resting place which was beyond a few rubble strewn rooms that previous excavators had used to hold their debris. Dr. Kent Weeks, an Egyptologist with the American University in Cairo, wanted to be sure the new parking facility wouldnt destroy anything important. Thus, Dr. weeks embarked in 1988 on one final exploration of the old dumping ground. Eventually he was able to pry open a door blocked ...

- Is Information On The Net Invalid - 743 words
Is Information on the Net Invalid? Is Information on the Net Invalid? In his essay, "Picking Nits on the Net," John Oughton reminds Internet users that information on the Net does not have a guarantee of authenticity, so it must be carefully evaluated.

- Pcs 2000 - 986 words
Pcs 2000 Consciousness expresses itself through creation. This world we live in is the dance of the creator. Dancers come and go in the twinkling of an eye but the dance lives on.

I become the lover and the beloved. I become the victor and the vanquished. I become the master and the slave. I become the singer and the song. I become the knower and the known. I keep on dancing and then, it is the eternal dance of creation. The creator and the creation merge into one wholeness of joy. I keep on danci ...

- The Developement Of Free Jazz - 1,037 words
The developement of Free Jazz The Development of Free Jazz All music has to develop into something new and by the late 1950's jazz was ready for a slight turn. A musical style called free jazz emerged with slight differences that has influenced most improvised music to this day. Some people despised this music's lack of set form. They found it difficult to listen to because of the missing order and lack of pre-planed notes. Others embraced the new music and it's emphasis on random feelings of emotion. For the men that developed free jazz it was a journey to find the "ultimate" expression in music. There is no set definition for free jazz. "In free jazz, musicians improvise freely without adh ...
