  • Was The Civil War Worth It - 1,165 words
    Was The Civil War Worth It? Was the civil war worth it? I believe that the civil war was worth it. Even though a lot of negative consequences came out of it, the positive changes outweighed the negative. To get a full understanding of why it was positive, one will have to understand what were the causes of war, changes resulting from war, and the consequences. The largest cause was the differences in thoughts about slavery. The North and South had contained their differences over slavery for sixty years after the Constitutional Convention. Compromise in 1787 had resolved the questions of slave trade and how to count slaves for congressional representation. Although slavery threatened the une ...

The character Mr McIlvaine like Truman Capote the author of In Cold Blood are both journalists who have found stories to which they feel newsprint, in itself would not have brought justice. Therefore to what extent has truth in narration, and truth through journalism influenced the writing of the novels of In Cold Blood and The Waterworks?

  • Welfare Reform - 1,331 words
    ... by the public as a welfare program (Lunardini 83). A few general social welfare programs, are HUD and GA. HUD stands for Housing and Urban Development, which stands as means for people in need to have a house (Maybury 41). The government either buys or builds houses for families in need to live in. GA stands for General Assistance. General Assistance is a catch-all term for any cash assistance that states provide to low income individuals who are not eligible for broader national programs (Blank 85). As the title of this program clearly states, General Assistance can be anything from cash and food stamps to houses. The problem with all of these programs is that they cost so much money. ...

[20] A reasonable jury could have concluded that most of the factors weighed in favor of Wendt and Ratzenberger, and that Host's conduct created at least the likelihood of consumer confusion. Whether their Lanham Act claim should succeed was a matter for the jury.

  • Westward Expansion - 2,038 words
    Westward Expansion The Westward Expansion has often been regarded as the central theme of American history, down to the end of the19th century and as the main factor in the shaping of American history. As Frederick Jackson Turner says, the greatest force or influence in shaping American democracy and society had been that there was so much free land in America and this profoundly affected American society. Motives After the revolution, the winning of independence opened up the Western country and was hence followed by a steady flow of settlers to the Mississippi valley. By 1840, 10 new western states had been added to the Federal union. The frontier line ran through Iowa, Missouri and Arkans ...

  • Wollstonecraft And Dickens: Fight For Educational Reform - 1,172 words
    ... there. Norrie Epstein, in The Friendly Dickens, states that, "utilitarianism professes function over feeling, facts over fancy". Mr. McChoakumchild, who is brilliantly named (choak-um-child), is not seen in action but we get a good description of him. He is supposed to represent the ordinary teacher who had gone of to school and been stuffed with facts of all kinds but never asked to really think about them, only regurgitate the information. We see no signs of actual humanity in this man; he is the model teacher for Utilitarianism, and, in fact, we get the idea that if he werent as learned as he was that he may actually have some humanity. Next, we see Tom Gradgrinds own children Louisa ...

  • Woodrow Wilson - 1,972 words
    Woodrow Wilson In 1856, Thomas Woodrow Wilson was born to Joseph Wilson and Janet Woodrow. Because he was the son of a Presbyterian minister, the moral ideology of Woodrow Wilson had its foundation early in his life. It is this moral approach to politics that shaped American foreign policy for a great part of the twentieth century. Wilson was elected president in 1910, as a result of Theodore Roosevelts Bull Moose split from the Republican Party. The idealistic governor from New Jersey believed that the time had come for him to instate moral politics on the American people. Wilson had little experience in the arena of international politics, this is quite ironic of Wilsons presidency because ...

  • Y2k - 979 words
    Y2k Civilizations dependence upon computers has grown exponentially in the last thirty years. Businesses use computers to keep their records, write reports, and to converse with colleagues and clients. The average businessperson depends primarily on their computer to complete a days work. Years ago, programmers caused what could have potentially been a major problem with modern computer systems. While attempting to conserve scarce and expensive data bits, they programmed the year using two digits instead of four. At the turn of the century, computer systems would not be able to discriminate between the year 1900 and the year 2000. As the speculation of what would happen at the turn of the mi ...

    Year 2000 Problem Why is the Y2K problem being overlooked? The Year 2000 is rapidly approaching! Will we be ready in time? Y2K stands for Year 2000 Catastrophe.

From writing social security checks to timing traffic signals, keeping banking account records to controlling food stocks at the local supermarket, computers are involved. Some other reasons includ ...
