  • From The Earth To The Moon - 633 words
    From The Earth To The Moon I believe Verne intended this book chiefly to be a satire of some people living at his time who were unable to accept the peaceful condition of the world. The Gun Club is nothing more than a group of disfigured and excitable old war mongers, who, since there was no war, needed to create some grand project as an outlet for their destructive energy. He also could have been satirizing the attitude of greatness that he perceived Americans to have about themselves and their country. This is illustrated in many lines of the members of the Gun Club, how they fear no obstacle, confident that American ingenuity will conquer all. Another possible reason for his writing this ...

Through the infamous Gun Club which was nothing more than a group of disfigured and excitable old war veterans. Since there was no war, they needed to create some grand project as an outlet for their destructive energy. Illustrated in many of the attitudes of the Gun Club members was how they feared no obstacle and were confident that American resourcefulness would conquer all of their obstacles. One of the ways that they vented their destructive power was to build a projectile-vehicle t ...

  • Iona Moon - 745 words
    Iona Moon Over the years of my adolescence I personally have felt the need to run away at times. I have felt that in order for people to perceive me a certain way I must behave in a certain manner. It got to a point where I just did not care about anyone's opinion about myself but my own. In Melanie Rae Thon's novel, Iona Moon, the main character Iona thought in the same way as I did. At one point in her adolescence she felt that she needed to act a certain way so that people would like her. She also felt that running away from her problems was the best solution. However, in the end, she just did not care anymore. Iona Moon was a simple country girl. She lived in an isolated rural town of Wh ...

  • Men On The Moon The Apollo Story - 1,453 words
    Men On The Moon The Apollo Story For years, man has looked up at the stars and wondered, what power they possessed or from what great God were they born? The answer to this question has always been a dream to man, but the dream is getting closer to reality. Space travel in the 1960s was become a reality, but man went farther with his expectations. Man now wanted to land and walk on the the only one of Earths natural satellites know as the Moon. The splashdown May 26, 1969, of Apollo 10 cleared the way for the first formal attempt at a manned lunar landing.1 The 363-foot-tall Apollo 11 space vehicle was launched from Pad A, Launch Complex 39, Kennedy Space Center, at 9:37 a.m., July 16, 1969. ...

    Moon Conclusion on the Moon Watch When I first got this assignment I was thinking I am never going to be able to do this every night for a month. I surprised myself once again. This class has made me doubt myself many times but I always seem to pull myself up to do it. I believe I did very well on this experiment and I achieved the purpose. I got finished and I even added some color. One problem I encountered was not being able to see it because of the trees in my yard. I had to drive a mile up the road to even see the moon. I found it and put down my data. The second problem I encountered was getting everything about the moon everyday. Some days were harder because I missed looking at the m ...

  • Moon Over Buffalo - 792 words
    Moon Over Buffalo Moon Over Buffalo Although not the talk of the university, Moon Over Buffalo was definitely the talk of those who saw it. From one comedic act to another. Whether it was Paul trying to get George's pants on or just random lines such as HOLY SHIT!!!, when George realizes he did not quite dress for the part. It gave all the students at Stephen F. Austin something to do and whether we were forced to or went on our own free will, everyone was satisfied. Buffalo, New York, carries the reputation of being a third-rate city, and not the center for the dramatic arts. In the 1950's, a theatrical company would not boast about playing there. The playwright of Moon Over Buffalo uses th ...

  • Moon Under Her Feet - 779 words
    Moon Under Her Feet The Moon Under Her Feet was a terrific book and I was very excited to have it revealed to me. I have always loved reading the Bible and learning about the times of Jesus. This book helped me to see if from a totally different point of view. In our church a play is always put on at Easter showing Jesus resurrection and Mari Magdalene was always a character they never told much about except that she was one of the three who discovered the empty tomb. It was wonderful to be able to see just how she fit into the story and what her relationship was with Almah Mari, previously known to me as "The Virgin Mary". This book put into perspective the goddess side and helped me to und ...

    The Moon The moon The moon is the only natural satellite of Earth. The moon orbits the Earth from 384,400 km and has an average speed of 3700 km per hour. It has a diameter of 3476 km, which is about that of the Earth and has a mass of 7.35e22 kg. The moon is the second brightest object in the sky after the sun.

  • The Moon Is Down - 452 words
    The Moon Is Down BASIC STRATEGIES FOR EFFECTIVE STUDIES Effective learning depends upon good study habits. Efficient study skills do not simply occur; they must first be learned and then applied consistently. Good study strategies include a preset time for study, a desirable place to study, and a well-designed study plan. A Time to study All of us think we have more things to do than we have time to do, and studying gets shortchanged. It is important to prepare a schedule of daily activities that includes time slots for doing the studying we have to do. Within each study slot, write in the specific study activity; for example, Read Unit 6 of accounting; do Problems 1-5. Keep the schedule fle ...

    The Moon is Down: The Effects of War War effects everyone involved. The conquerors and those being conquered. War is a struggle that is internal and external. Man can be a dedicated and loyal soldier for only so much at a time. He then longs for laughter, music, girls, a good meal and more. In The Moon is Down, the soldiers get the need to return home. They begin to doubt what they are doing and if they are being told the truth. They become uneasy when the enemy doesn't talk to them. The townspeople's hatred is growing. They remained indoors and stared from behind curtains while the patrol walked through the town. Lieutenant Tonder was a romantic naive poet who felt the enemy should love him ...

  • 1984: A Bleak Prediction Of The Future - 1,222 words
    1984: A Bleak Prediction Of The Future Nineteen Eighty-Four was written by a major contributor to anticommunist literature around the World War II period, and is one of the greatest stories of an anti-utopian society ever. Nineteen Eighty-Four was not written solely as an entertaining piece of literature or as a dream of what the future could be like, it was written as a warning of what could happen as a result of communism and totalitarianism. This was not necessarily a widely popular vision of the future at the time of publication, but it was certainly considered a possibility by many people. The popular vision of the future, if analyzed as from a character in the book's point of view, som ...

I will also be incorporating elements from Mark Millers article "2001 - a cold descent" 2001: A Space Odyssey, introduced in 1968, is a high concept production that begins by tracing the 'Dawn Of Man', which eventually leads to a journey through the solar system by a crew of astronauts aboard a spaceship bound for Jupiter. The accompanying soundtrack plays as much of a role in the development of suspense and intrigue as the actors performances. Three decades later, the soundtrack remains one of the most recognized in cine ...

    2001: A Space Odyssey The concept of space travel has been an interest to many since the beginning of time. Today, scientists are moving at a comfortable pace to expand our vast knowledge of the universe. Many authors dreamed of the possibilities while scientists tried to bring them to reality. The book "2001: A Space Odyssey," written by Arthur C. Clarke in the 1960's, proposed ideas about advanced space travel that took place in a time period only two years from now; however, at the current rate of the space program, mankind is nowhere near the technology showed by the book. Clarke uses concepts of space travel that can still only be dreamed of today. Clarke, an author of the sixties, had ...

    60'S Music Influence On Our Society Sixties Music and How it Reflected the Changing Times Chris Montaigne Professor Shao Rhetoric II The 1960's in the United States was a decade marred by social unrest, civil rights injustice, and violence both home and abroad. These were some of the factors that lead to a cultural revolution. The revolution attempted to diverge the fabric of American society. Teenagers were living dangerously and breaking away from the ideals that their parents held. In the process they created their own society (Burns 1990). They were young and had the nerve to believe that they could change the world. Their leaders had lofty goals as well. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. had d ...
