  • A Sociological Look At Jaws - 1,690 words
    A Sociological Look At Jaws The movie I choose to review was Jaws, which is one of my favorites and a timeless classic. A traditional story about man against beast takes place on an island that depends on its summer tourist business. When the summer season in threatened by a series of shark attacks three men are sent out to track down a great white shark. The three main (human) characters are Brody (Roy Scheider), the police chief, who came to the island from New York looking, so he thought, for a change from the fears of the city. There's Quint (Robert Shaw), a caricature of the crusty old seafaring salt, who has a very personal reason for hating sharks. And there's Hooper (Richard Dreyfuss ...

Both parks offer a different experience, yet they started with the same goal in mind, entertain the guest. Both Disney-MGM Studios and Universal Studios draw their theme and inspiration from film and television. They both offer rides based on television and movies, so ...

  • 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 Intelligence - 963 words
    Animal Intelligence? Often those who study animal intelligence are searching for the human reflection in the animal world. They feel that by unraveling the workings of the animal brain, they might find clues to the mysterious minds of humans. And because of their closeness to humankind, they find monkeys and apes especially fascinating. A major component of intelligence lies in flexibility of mind and adaptability to situations. When things change, when they are not the way they were before, the intelligent animal notices and tries to adjust to the changed circumstances. The instinctual animal, such as a honeybee collecting for the hive, sometimes cannot adjust, so it continues in its old be ...

To study the beating heart, they cut open into its chest. For centuries physicians and researchers used animals to enhance their knowledge about how the various organs and systems of the body functioned, as well as to hone their surgical skills.

  • Aurora Borealis - 1,720 words
    Aurora Borealis AURORA BOREALIS Imagine a cold October night, you walk out to your car and something catches your eye. You step further into the street be it busy or not, and you begin to turn in 360 circles. For what your eyes behold is far from anything you have ever seen. A circle of green and blue swirl through the night sky, I could best describe this as two ballroom dancers doing a Waltz through the night sky. They flow, they glide so gracefully that they capture you and keep you entranced for a very long time. This my first experience viewing the amazing Aurora Borealis, it did not matter that people were watching, or that the roads were iced over and that I could not stand on ...

  • Beowulf As A Hero - 659 words
    Beowulf As A Hero Beowulf is "the strongest of the Geats -- greater / and stronger than anyone anywhere in this world" (ll.110-111). Even though he is famous for his massive strength, Beowulf has other attributes that are noticeable other than his strength. These attributes, arrogance, bravery, and a strong love for his people are what make Beowulf become such a powerful, epic hero. Beowulf is arrogant. He constantly brags about his supreme strength. The "strongest man alive" lets people know that he is the most powerful person around by saying, "no strength is a match for mine" (l.267). Beowulf does not think that he could ever be destroyed by anything. He obviously never questiones how his ...

  • Cardboard Boxes Played A Significant Role In My Childhood Days Dont Get Me Wrong Toys Were Wonderful, Too, But Nothing Could - 1,420 words
    Cardboard boxes played a significant role in my childhood days. Don't get me wrong; toys were wonderful, too, but nothing could out-do a cardboard box and a few kids to go along with it-especially my two best neighborhood friends, Chris and Nick, brothers who lived three blocks away. Summer was always the perfect time to have a cardboard box. The long, lazy days offered sufficient time to experience the true essence of a box and to truly bond with it. However, in order to bond with a box, we first had to find one. The three of us would pile into the back of my parents' truck, then sing the "Na Na Na" song (any song we only knew some of the words to but sang anyway) while we waited for my mom ...

    Daddy daddy As the echoing screams and painful cries die down, take a moment or two to snap back into reality and realize, it's only a song. The incessant bellows and whines of Korn's Jonathan Davis move some of us, and we are never the same; others hit the stop button and change the CD, before the song is really over, and never understand what's going on. As Jon screeches out moving lyrics like, 'I didn't touch you there', Mommy said she didn't care, 'I didn't touch you there', that's why Mommy stopped and stared. he loops over in the background as he relives the moment once again in the recording studio. Do half the people who listen to Korn stop in the middle of Daddy to realize the sobbi ...

  • Evolution Of Humans - 1,542 words
    Evolution Of Humans Human evolution is the biological and cultural development of humans. A human is any member of the species Homo sapiens, meaning "wise man." Since at least the Upper Paleolithic era, some 40,000 years ago, every human society has devised a creation myth to explain how humans came to be. Creation myths are based on cultural beliefs that have been adopted as a legitimate explanation by a society as to where we came from. The science of paleoanthropology, which also tries to create a narrative about how humans came to be, is deeply technical. Paleoantropology is the science of the evolution of humans, and it is the base of all research in that field. Humans have undergone ma ...
