  • Luis Armstrong - 608 words
    Luis Armstrong Louis Armstrong Louis Armstrong was the most influential person in jazz's history. He contributed greatly to the growth of jazz and was able to play in a variety of ways. His amazing and interesting life came from his straight talent for the music. He deserved every bit of fame he got simply because he was an incredible musician. Louis Armstrong was born in 1900 and raised by a poor New Orleans family. At twelve he was sent to reform school for firing a gun in the air on New Year's Eve. There he learned to play the cornet, which was his introduction to music. After he was released he worked small jobs and, although he did not own an instrument, he enjoyed listening to the Hot ...

  • The Book Of Sand By Jorge Luis Borges - 1,287 words
    The Book of Sand by Jorge Luis Borges Jorge Luis Borges is a famous Spanish author, known best for his short stories. In this paper, I will discuss several short stories written by Mr. Borges, what influenced him in his writings, and a brief history of his place of origin, Argentina. Borges' The Book of Sand is the story of a man who is visited by a stranger trying to sell a "holy book" called the Book of Sand. The narrator looks at the book and is unable to see the first or last pages of it because, as the stranger explains, the number of pages is infinite.

  • Aldous Huxleys Brave New World And George Orwells 1984 - 631 words
    Aldous HuxleyS Brave New World And George OrwellS 1984 Neil Postman once stated; Huxleys vision is more relevant today than is Orwells, Neil was of course refering to Aldous Huxleys Brave New World and George Orwells 1984, both chilling prophecies of the future of humanity gone terribly wrong. Although one could agree with Neals view of Huxleys Brave New World, where life is taken down to only the most trivial of entertainment, lack of family, love or individuality, it would be horribly blind to miss the elements of Orwells 1984 coming through our society as well. Orwells fear of the truth being concealed, banned books and a captive humanity show as true as Huxleys views. Our world today has ...

  • Dinosaurs Extinction - 1,537 words
    Dinosaurs Extinction The first question that must be posed when trying to crack the mystery of the mass extinction is to ask, throughout history were there any other occurences of this magnitude? The answer is a resounding yes. Altogether over time there has been about eight mass extinctions to large land dwelling vertebrates. The most recent was about ten thousand years ago, killing most of the giant mammals like mammoths, mastodons, super-large camels, saber-toothed tigers, and others (Bakker 428). The second question, is whether or not these mass extinctions follow a pattern? Once again the answer is yes. Every time a mass extinction occurs on the land ecosystem, the oceanic system is hur ...

Even though Dominican-Americans are making strides in trying to better their life, there are still many negative stereotypes that persist about them. Once such stereotype that seems to plague all people of color, is that their men are lazy and will not account for their children. Another being that Dominican-American women do not want to work, but only care to get money from the government with no efforts to better themselves. The most silly of these stereotypes is that Dominican-Americans refuse to learn to s ...

Las Casas describes this scene upon entering the Indian village of Caonao: "The Clerico was preparing for the division of the rations amongst the men, when suddenly a Spaniard, prompted, as was thought, by the Devil, drew his sword: the rest drew theirs; and immediately they all began to hack and hew the poor Indians, who were sitting quietly near them, and offering not more resistance than so many sheep".

Her screams are then drowned out by the prehistoric roar of the genetically engineered Tyrannosaurus Rex as it searches for prey (Crichton, 1991).

The chief concern in isolating ancient bacteria is the contamination of the sample by modern bacteria through fractures in the amber. Despite the extensive sterilization techniques, scientists cannot be sure whether the bacteria isolated are truly ancient bacteria (Poinar, 1994). For instance, Bacillus subtilis bacteria were cultured from an amber from an amber specimen of a stingless bee from the Dominican Republic, but these bacteria are commonly found in both the alimentary canal of the modern-day stingless bee and in the soil. Also problems arise in extracting the DNA from the sin ...
