- A Rough Man - 1,341 words
A Rough Man Rough, vigorous, hot-tempered and rich is what Mark Twain grew up to be. Born 1835 in Missouri, Florida he always did what he needed to in order for him to reach his goal. Even though he dropped out of school at the age of twelve, when his father died, he accomplished numerous things. Mark began writing when he took the job of a journalist.

- Betty Boop - 767 words
Betty Boop Betty Boop The best case study in animation to illustrate the powerful influence society has over the types of films that are produced is the story of Betty Boop. She was a major cartoon character before the Production Code of 1934 was put into place, and her dramatic and fatal transformation illustrates how a product created under one set of standards often withers when placed in a new set. At the same time, the Code alone cannot explain why this dizzy little flapper degenerated so quickly. Betty Boop exists today solely as a merchandising item. Betty's face and figure can be found on T-shirts, posters, and all sorts of things. Her current popularity in merchandise is somewhat pu ...

CHAPTER 1 THE AMAZING THEORY OF RAW-MATERIAL SCARCITY The Great Toy Shortage Forget it, Virginia. Santa won't be leaving a Star Wars R2-D2 doll under the tree this year - just an I.O.U. promising you one at some vague time between February and June. Don't count on a Mego Micronaut kit for building your own robot either, or a Milky the Marvelous Milking Cow, which drinks water when its tail is pumped, moos plaintively and squirts a tiny pailful of cloudy white milk from a detachable pink udder.... Not since the Grinch stole Christmas has there been such an unseasonable shortage. Newsweek, December 19, 1977, p. 58 CHAPTER 1 - TABLE OF CONTENTS The Great Toy Shortage Between Pig Copper and Dent ...

But do they know how cruel the Americans were to the natives? Do they know how we corrupted their culture and their religion? Do they know how Hawaii really became a state? Probably not. When most people think of Hawaii, they think of happy Hawaiian babes hula dancing and palm trees swaying in the warm breeze. Hawaii has still held on to many of their traditions although they were invaded by Americans. But you have to go to a museum to see their old way of life. Hawaii is now populated mostly by Americ ...

- Plastic - 829 words
Plastic Many individuals today have civilized bodies and barbarous souls. Many are blind to the real sights of this world and deaf to its voice. However, no matter how ignorant one may be, he or she cannot disregard the significance of plastics in his or her life. Although they were not recognized as such, many materials used centuries ago for clothing and elements of construction, were natural polymers based on starch and cellulose.

- Rebel Poets Of 1950s - 1,826 words
Rebel Poets Of 1950S Rebel Poets of the 1950s America demands a poetry that is bold, modern and all-surrounding and kosmical, as she is herself. Although Walt Whitman wrote that prescription shortly after the Civil War, it also vividly describes the generation of American poets who came of age after World War II. Particularly during moments of cultural change, poets have joined artists on the front lines of expanding consciousness by forging a vernacular language that gives expression to contemporary life. One such shift in poetry occurred at the time of World War I, and another major shift took place during the decade after the Second World War. The 1950s are stereotypically represented as ...

... and heavy," and her female attributes subsumed under the gardening costume. What makes this description noteworthy is its focus on the characteristics that have enabled Elisa to survive. She wears a "mans black hat," and her dress is "almost completely covered." The covered dress symbolizes the fact that Elisas strength, almost masculine at the opening of the story, will transform. The strength combined with her love of her creation, her flowersthe "masculine" and the "feminine"--could be the very thing to push her to try for "more" than a woman can dare to hope for. Elisa is frustrated as a woman, and so has taken on masculine qualities, so she is first depicted as a woman whose streng ...

Unix "UNIX was the first operating system designed to run on dissimilar computers by converting most hardware specific commands in machine language into an independent programming language called C," Jon Wolfe writes in the Nashville Business Journal.
