  • Last Battle Of The 20th Centery - 962 words
    Last Battle Of The 20Th Centery Call it the last battle of the twentieth century, or the first battle of the next millennium. But don't short-sell the importance of the battle raging between the music performers and big record labels. The battlefield is the Internet, and at stake is who controls the distribution of music.

But advances in technology create what consultants call--hold your lunch, kids--a paradigm shift. Check it: artist to web site to consumer. Sure, the record label could have a say on this issue, but artists--including some of th ...

  • Beowulf - 848 words
    Beowulf What Makes a Hero? After spending over a week reading the story "Beowulf", we can all come to the conclusion that he is a hero. Sure, he saves countries from monsters, has incredible strength and wisdom, and is fearless- the typical fictional hero. However, when I hear the word hero, I think in terms of an everyday hero. In my mind, a hero is someone who performs courageous acts even if the consequences can be fatal. A hero doesn't have to be some big muscled guy who beats up bad guys. My example of a hero is a fireman. He/she knows that they might be killed rescuing someone from a burning building, yet they still go in. Why? Probably for the honor and glory that people will give the ...

  • Macbeth Fear And Conscience - 1,551 words
    Macbeth Fear And Conscience (1) Profr. Federico Pat n November, 1997 From the first time Macbeth appears with the witches and Banquo, the reader could notice a kind of tension in the scene. The three witches anticipate Macbeth's future and he seems to be anxious of what is going to happen with the prophecies. But why is he so anxious to confirm the witches' words, especially the third prophecy which proclaims him king? I presume that it is because that idea was already in his mind. His ambition and the idea of becoming the king of Scotland would lead him to his first crime, murdering Duncan. But Macbeth fears. He is afraid of what he might do.
