- Dr Seuss - 1,318 words
Dr. Seuss Dr. Seuss I took an unconventional approach in the topic I chose for my reading assignment - whereas most groups selected single novels, my partner and I opted to read a collection of short stories by none other than the notorious Dr. Seuss. Were I writing this essay on a "normal" book, I would be able to pose a question about the book itself and answer it in an ordinary sort of way. However, given the subject matter I have chosen, an essay on an individual book, though possible, would be a very tricky thing to do. It would be wiser, and probably easier, to respond to the man himself. My decision to respond to the man himself makes many more choices - what facet of Dr. Seuss shall ...

Jurassic Park And Tech The girl shrieks as the giant tree trunk of a leg crashes down shaking the earth. Her screams are then drowned out by the prehistoric roar of the genetically engineered Tyrannosaurus Rex as it searches for prey (Crichton, 1991). Everyone remembers this scene from the best-selling novel by Michael Crichton, Jurassic Park. These scenes were then brought to life by producer/director Steven Spielberg in the immensely popular movie by the same name. Is this possible? As technological advances in molecular biology steam into the twenty-first century, many scientists have found themselves asking this very question. With continuing advancements in the methods of recombining DN ...

... entually clone or study them. Unfortunately attempts to isolate ancient bacteria have been inconclusive. 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 ...

- Title Of Paper : Flopping Sun - 713 words
Title of Paper : Flopping Sun Grade Received on Report : 88% Flopping Sun. How to turn a great book into a bad movie. There have been many book to movie conversions, yet Rising Sun by Michael Crichton was one that had gone horribly wrong. Rising Sun, in addition to being a gripping mystery/thriller, functioned as a scathing attack on American apathy to Japanese economic aggression. In fact, in his afterword to the novel, Crichton says, "The Japanese are not our saviors. They are our competitors. We should not forget it." Statements like these earned Rising Sun the dubious distinction of being a Japan-bashing novel. The movie version of this book tried to stay away from that type of publicity ...
