    Movies Each war had a serious impact on the individuals surrounding it, whether it be the soldiers, Indians, slaves, women, children, and even the entire feeling of the countryside. The commonality in each of the three films, "Last of the Mohicans," Mary Silliman's War," and "Glory," was war, but each centered on a different segment of the population and the different wars of the time period. The French and Indian War was depicted in the "Last of the Mohicans," showing the trials the settlers of the countryside faced while the French fought for control of the union against the British in the mid-18th Century. Focusing on the strengths of women, "Mary Silliman's War" encompasses the revolutio ...

  • Mustard Gas Is A Group Of Chemical Compounds Used In Chemical Warfare, So Called Because Of Its Mustardlike Smell Mustard Gas - 476 words
    Mustard Gas is a group of chemical compounds used in chemical warfare, so called because of its mustard-like smell. Mustard gas contains carbon, hydrogen, and chlorine, with either sulfur or nitrogen. When it comes in contact with skin, mustard gas causes severe blisters. Clothing can be worn to protect the skin, but breathing it produces extreme damage to the lungs and other internal tissues. These compounds are particularly harmful to moist areas of the human body, such as the eyes, armpits, and groin, and concentrated exposure may be fatal. Mustard gas is generally a solid or liquid, but can also be sprayed as an aerosol. Modern gas warfare began during World War I (1914-1918). In April 1 ...

Moreover, the impact that nanotech will have on production could lead to a never before seen abundance of goods. Costs and labor will all be significantly cheaper. Everyone would be able to use nanotech as a tool for increased efficiency in the area of production (DuCharme 60). The overall effects of nanotech on producing materials were best summed up by Dowie, "This new revolution won't require crushing, boiling, melting, etc. Goods would now be built from the atom up by nanomachines" (4). Nanotech will also be able to benefit us in other ways. One great advantage to nanotech ...

  • Opinion On Affirmative Action - 1,044 words
    Opinion On Affirmative Action annon Note: This essay contains opinions NOT shared by the host of this web site. Affirmative action is wrong and will not help solve the problems minorities face.

  • Plato - 1,645 words
    Plato And Conservative Christians The views of Plato back in Ancient Greece and that of conservative Christians today about education for children have surprisingly similar views. Plato thought it to be most beneficial for children, if their learning consisted of music and poetry to shape the soul, and of physical training to shape the body. However, only stories that were fine and beautiful should be selected. Stories that co ained falsehoods should be banned along with passages that teach fear of death. The teaching should be done in moderation, only the good endings should be taught and only good deeds of heroes should be told. Conservative Christians today believe in many of the same ide ...

Political Correctness: The University of Southern California: The Teddy Bear Massacre Like so many other traditions, the burning of the bruin was put on the chopping block recently. The long running University of Southern California spirit activity consisted of throwing a large stuffed bear in a bon fire the night before the football game against their rival, the University of California at Los Angeles. The Black Student Union and other student organizations recently questioned the event. Their concern was that the event too closely resembled past lynching of African Americans in the American south.

  • Polygamy - 1,029 words
    Polygamy Polygamy is the practice of a man taking more than one wife at the same time. Polyandry is when a woman takes more that one husband at the same time. Polyandry is rare compared to polygamy, because it is only known to be inexistence in two parts of the world. One is among the Nair people who are inhabitants of Indias Malabar Coast. The other is in Tibet, where a woman can take her husbands brothers as her mates. This paper will be focused strictly on the debate over polygamy. It does more harm than good and should be banned and enforced strongly within the United States borders. Being married to more than one person at the same time has been illegal in the U.S. since 1862, but has n ...

  • Racial Difference In Intelligence - 1,709 words
    Racial Difference In Intelligence Is there a racial difference in Intelligence? Is There a Racial Difference in Intelligence? Starting with birth, most Americans are consistently measured and their abilities consistently assessed. While no clear definition of intelligence has been adopted universally, in general, definitions stress either an ability to adapt to environment, the capacity to learn, or the ability to think abstractly. Like the word "love," intelligence remains a term we all have a feel for but cannot quite pin down. Today, this undefined ability has become one of the most controversial topics in psychology. Psychological researchers have resisted racism by denying the existence ...

  • Sex Education - 1,776 words
    Sex Education In today's society there is an on going debate over sex education and its influence on our children. "The question is no longer should sex education be taught, but rather how it should be taught" (DeCarlo). With teenage pregnancy rates higher than ever and the imminent threat of the contraction of STD's, such as HIV, the role of sex education in the school is of greater importance now then ever before. By denying children sex education you are in a sense sheltering them from the harsh realities they are bound to encounter. Sex education has become an essential part of the curriculum and by removing the information provided by this class we'll be voluntarily putting our children ...

  • South Africas Struggles - 899 words
    South Africas Struggles South Africas Struggles Throughout Earths history imperialism has done more harm that good, to the smaller overpowered territories. The greater more dominant nation would use and exploit the people and the land for their own use without much concern to the devastation it is causing to the land and the society of these territories. The native people of the land most often loose their traditional ways of life and are thrown into the ways and ideals of the dominating nation. However these people are usually taken advantage of and do not share the same equality in pay, jobs, and living standards as the people of the dominant nation.

  • Such An Issue Stirs Up Moral And Religious Beliefs - 1,377 words
    Such an issue stirs up moral and religious beliefs; beliefs that are contrary to what America should "believe". However, such a debate has been apparent in the American marketplace of ideas before with the prohibition of alcohol in the 1920's. With the illegality of alcohol the mafia could produce liquor and therefore had considerable control over those who wanted their substance and service. The role that the mafia played in the 1920's has transformed into the corner drug dealers and drug cartel of the 1990's. The justification that legalized alcohol under Amendment 21 in 1933 should also legalize drugs in 1996. With the legalization of drugs a decrease in deaths related to drug deals would ...
