  • An Oral History Of A Young Jewish Women In World War Ii - 1,229 words
    ... gardens. Similar to food rationing was the rationing of gasoline. We didn't have a car, but there was a card similar to the ration book, which would ration gas to each car a week. People were constantly finding tires and metal to contribute to the war effort. One of the greatest aspects of World War 2 was the unity of all the people of the United States. Everyone was united in helping to fight this war and having freedom reign over tyranny. Now a days people are spoiled, wasteful and all about themselves. During the war, another great aspect was the role of women in America. Before the war women were just seen as housewives, teachers, secretaries or any other stereotypical view of femal ...

    Battle Of San Jacinto The Pride of Texas The Texas army marched all day and all night. On the morning of April 20, they reached the San Jacinto plain. Buffalo Bayou was on one side, a football field wide, and 30 feet deepnot wadeable.

The Texas government had escaped, but Santa Anna was confident of victor ...

  • Blood Alcohol Content - 703 words
    Blood Alcohol Content The thought of alcohol being involved in fatal crashes brings about an emotional response. Recently, there has been a movement based on emotion rather than logic to change a certain drinking and driving law. This involves lowering the Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) from 0.10% to 0.08% nationwide. However, this attention is misdirected. By looking at my personal experiences, statistics, and current laws, it is clear that there is no need for lowering the BAC. First off, I do not drink. Yet, I've had many experiences relating to drinking and driving through my friends. One thing I've noticed is that it is extremely hard for people to tell if they are legally drunk or not. Fu ...

  • California Surf Culture - 1,973 words
    California Surf Culture Joe Reid Joe Reid English 101 California Surf Culture The manufactured image of health and happiness that became synonymous with the California Lifestyle has over the years become more refined, molded into a specific state of existence that is, by definition, a contradiction placed at the ocean's edge. The exploitation of this natural condition has been traced from the innocent origins of early local surf industry into the contemporary realm of multi million dollar public offerings on Wall Street. The recreational sport of surfing is but one of several histories through which the process of co modification and exploitation becomes obvious. Stripped of its innocent beg ...

  • Charlie Chaplin - 630 words
    Charlie Chaplin Charles Spencer Chaplin was born on April 16, 1889 in Walworth, London, and lived a Dickensian childhood, shared with his brother, Sydney, that included extreme poverty, workhouses and seeing his mother's mental decline put her into an institution. Both his parents, though separated when he was very young, were music hall artists, his father quite famously so.

He achieved his ambition when he joined a dancing troop, the Eight Lancashire Lads, and this eventually led onto parts in Sherlock Holmes and Casey's Court Circus. Sydney, mea ...

  • Comparitive Esay On The Joy Luck Club Fried Green Tomatoes - 1,370 words
    Comparitive Esay On The Joy Luck Club & Fried Green Tomatoes The Joy Luck Club is a saga about Chinese mothers and their American - born daughters. Four main sections divide the novel.

The story is told in a sophisticated manner, with emphasis on the historical references in the novel and the struggle of women. All mothers who act in this book were born in the period between the mid 1920's and the late 1940's. The social and political history o ...

  • Dead Poets Society - 930 words
    Dead Poets Society Sometimes in life people can come along and touch our lives in unexpected ways. This was the case with Mr. Keating and the boys in the movie "Dead Poets Society". He taught the boys so many lessons that they would have never learned from any other teacher. By looking at scenes from the movie, and lines from the works of Ralph Waldo Emerson and Walt Whitman, we can see just how important the lessons were that Keating was trying to teach the boys. Mr. Keating reminded them to seize each day and cherish them dearly. From the very first day that Mr. Keating had walked into the classroom you could already see that he had an original method of teaching. He came into class whistl ...

    ... tured Death of a Salesman to show Willy Loman's pleasures, dreams, and hopes of the past. Thus the central conflict of the play is Willy's inability to differentiate between reality and illusion. In the opening of the play numerous otifs are presented. The first being the melody of a flute which suggests a distant, faraway fantasy: Willy's dream world. This is playing in the background as Willy enters carrying his burdensome traveling suitcases. He has been a traveling salesma for the Wagner Company for thirty-four years. Willy left that morning for a trip and has already returned. He tells his wife Linda that he opened the windshield of the car to let the warm air in and was quietly dri ...

    ... wer to imitate any place. This vacancy - quite literally, this absence of scenery - is the equivalent in the medium of the theater to the secularization of space ... (p. 195) On this basis Marlowe's dramatisation of the history of Tamburlaine is seen by Greenblatt as Tamburlaine's will to power in the occupation of theatrical space. Just as Elizabethan dramatists breezily rewrite historical source materials, so Greenblatt breezily rewrites Tamburlaine in terms which implicitly argue the perspicuity of Deleuze and Guattari: `Tamburlaine is a machine, a desiring machine that produces violence and death.' (p. 195) Hence the terms of Tamburlaine's dynamic occupation of stage space are furthe ...

Based only on the most profitable films, popularity is a very limited area of film to study as part of film history. In part this is due to the problems with the calculation of box office receipts, which is hugely biased towards modern films. It does not take into account inflation or the rise in ticket prices, so older films would have to have been seen by many times the number of people of modern films in order to have the same box ...

  • Fingerprinting Kids - 1,047 words
    Fingerprinting Kids Copyright 1983 NPG,Ltd. Issue: Should parents voluntarily create detailed identification records (including fingerprints) on their children in anticipation of possible runaway problems or abductions? (1) Yes. You can never tell when terrible things will happen to a child, so its best to be prepared. (2) No. The vast majority of missing children are not abducted. Whether abducted or not, fingerprinting will do no good. It wastes time and money and pushes us that much closer to the creation of the Orwellian National Data Center that Congress rejected fifteen years ago. BACKGROUND: As of early 1983, 11 states had launched programs to fingerprint children.( These were New Yor ...

    ... panies have already begun to implement some programmes to reduce GHGs emissions, by investing in more Energy Efficiency programmes and Green Power. Indeed, energy efficiency in business can lead to many competitive advantages. Measures can be implemented in several areas: building and facilities; production processes; end-use products; and transportation. These sectors provide many opportunities for cutting costs, increasing profits and enhancing the image of companies. Some ways to save energy include installing efficient lighting, capturing and reusing waste heat, insulating buildings and computerising heating and cooling systems. These kinds of programmes are almost risk-free and can ...

  • Hamlet And Insanity - 1,895 words
    Hamlet And Insanity "I am but mad north-north-west: when the wind is southerly I know a hawk from a handsaw" (2.2.338-9). This is a classic example of the "wild and whirling words" (1.5.133) with which Hamlet hopes to persuade people to believe that he is mad. These words, however, prove that beneath his "antic disposition," Hamlet is very sane indeed. Hamlet is saying that he knows a hunting hawk from a hunted "handsaw" or heron in other words, that, very far form being mad, he is perfectly capable of recognizing his enemies. Beneath his strange choice of imagery involving points of the compass, the weather, and hunting birds, he is announcing that he is calculatedly choosing the times when ...

  • Hardball By Chris Matthews - 1,628 words
    Hardball By Chris Matthews Review of HARDBALL (by Chris Matthews) Before I started reading the book Hardball, by Chris Matthews, I had a preconceived idea of what the content of this book would be. From the title of the book I drew the conclusion that Matthews would write more about the darker side of politics and how it is 'really' played. I don't really know much about politics, and frankly, I don't care much for politics. However, when I hear the word hardball in the context of politics, I think of blood shed. I think of dirty tricks and blackmail and money changing hands in dark places. I even think of the mafia to some degree when I hear the word hardball. Perhaps my notion of hardball ...

  • I Am A Person Who Believes That All People Should Be Treated Fairly I Believe In The Freedom Of Thought, The Freedom Of Relig - 960 words
    I am a person who believes that all people should be treated fairly. I believe in the freedom of thought, the freedom of religion, the freedom of speech, but most of all the freedom to control ones own destiny. During his dictatorship Joseph Stalin stripped his people not only of freedom of thought, religion and speech, but of many other rights as well. Although Joseph Stalin managed to bring about great changes in a very short period of time, I believe that the results were not worth the price paid by his country and its people. Stalins first major policy that he enforced came in the form of a five-year plan. This was created to help build up the industry and economy of Russia. It included ...

Eva knew that the only place she could realistically become a star, was 150 miles across the pampas, in Buenos Aires. At fifteen she was determined to shake the pampas dust from her shoes and head to the concrete paradise of her dreams. Her chance came in the form of a young handsome tango singer named Agustin Magaldi. Magaldi ...

  • Long Days Journey Into Night - 1,206 words
    Long Days Journey Into Night It is understandable that so many people in our class did not find the last act of Eugene O'Neill's Long Day's Journey Into Night a satisfying one; there is no tidy ending, no goodbye kisses or murder confessions; none of the charaters leave the stage with flowers in their hands or with smiles on their faces and none of the characters give explanatory monologues after the curtain falls, as we've become accustomed to by reading so much Shakespeare. O'Neill, though, isn't Shakespeare and Long Days Journey Into Night is as different from, say, A Midsummer's Night Dream or Twelfth Night than a pint of stout ale is from a glass of light chardonney. It is because of th ...
