- Assisted Suicide - 756 words
Assisted Suicide People are probaly confused at the fact that society approving people to be euthanized. Obviously, if it was stated in a letter to the editor in the Detroit Free Press entitled, "Death, Dignity." The writer is simply saying it's okay to end lives. It also states that John Engler, our state government, is supporting two important projects that assist in these suicides. Engler is trying to establish Michigan to be a national leader in death with dignity (Death, Dignity). That doesn't sound like dying with dignity to me. I think assisted suicide is wrong and we should take an account that killing yourself isn't dignified. First of all the writer self-contradicts him/her self. T ...

- Irvings American Progeny - 1,410 words
Irving's American Progeny Irving's American Progeny Washington Irving had the unique opportunity of helping a new nation forge its own identity. America, fresh out of the revolution, looked for an author to take charge and create something that seemed to be missing from the newly born nation. He took this responsibility seriously and made a mythology that founded an American literary tradition. He took bits and pieces from the Old World and incorporated them into the New in such a manner that what he wrote appeared original, and yet tied into a tradition that was centuries old. He did this in a manner that astonished many Europeans who believed an American could never produce literature with ...

... cause whoever wins her also wins the treasures of her father. Crane recognized this fact as well as Brom Van Brunt, the story's symbol of the American people. Crane wished to take Katrina, as well as their children and possessions, and travel to new territory, away from Sleepy Hollow, where she was born and raised, much as England had taken America's resources away from her people in order to replenish depleted funds. Van Brunt recognized Crane's self-interest and therefore fought to keep the treasure where it rightfully belonged. Ichabod's destructive tendencies were shown through Irving's description of him riding to the party. "He rode with short stirrups, which brought his knees near ...

- Original Writing - 1,912 words
Original Writing Just calm down would you. For a few moments at least. You have got ages to think about what you are taking with you, 20 minutes before you have to be out of that door. Pausing to listen to my mothers unhelpful words has cost me yet another few precious seconds, seconds that I dont have to waste, not now anyway. I wont snap at her mind, she is the sole reason that I have the opportunity to be going where I am. You see, she has agreed to lie, to my somewhat over protective father, about my whereabouts, I owe her big time. These were my thoughts as I realised, after having overslept by no less than 2 hours, that I had precisely 18 minutes to get a whole four days worth of neces ...

- Parallel Editing - 507 words
Parallel Editing Parallel editing, or the ability to make two separate actions happen at the same time, was innovated by D.W. Griffith and is exclusive to films. Action films are a good source for these, as they give the impression of tensely reaching a climax in the film. In Vampires, by John Carpenter (1998), there are two sequences which include parallel editing. The first example happens rather early in the movie. At this point, a team of vampire slayers commissioned by the Catholic Church are having a party at a motel. this occurs after they slayed all the vampires in a nearby nest, losing the head vampire, Valek. The parallel action begins when the three survivors come back to the mote ...
