  • A Booming End To The 19th Century - 1,105 words
    A Booming End To The 19Th Century More changes occurred in America in the late 19th century than any other time period. The country went through rapid expansion from residents of its land to cuisine to transportation of goods and people. While the last quarter of the 20th century brought many modern conveniences, the century before brought this country things that would be nearly impossible to live without. The development of railroads was the single greatest change in the 19th century. In only twenty-five years, almost 70,000 miles of tracks were laid. This in itself was a great feat, because of all the people and products used in the building of the railroads. In order to build railroads, ...

  • Adam Smith - 340 words
    Adam Smith Adam Smith, (1776), of the division of labor According to Adam Smith, economic growth is rooted in the increasing division of labor and the specialization of the labor force by the breaking down of large jobs into many little ones. Under this regime, each worker becomes an expert in one area of production and workers do not have to switch tasks during the day. This will increase efficiency by saving time and money. Smith illustrates his theory very well with an example of the production pins. He says that an individual could not make as many pins as he or she could produce concentrating on a single operation of its manufacture. Smith tells us that there are three reasons for this: ...

    African Museum Wesam Berjaoui April. 01, 2000 Professor Gloster-Coates History 132 CRN# 24386 Museum Project The first museum I went to was my favorite. I went to the Museum for African Art displaying the Hair exhibit. The name of the exhibit sounded very uninteresting, but I was proven wrong. The first thing that I learned from this exhibit is that in Africa the way your hair is done represents your position in society. Your hair was probably one of the most important if not thee most important thing to an African person. A person was distinguished into which clan or group he or she was in by his or her hair style. If you were a very wealthy person your hair was extremely well done to make ...

  • Aikido - 664 words
    Aikido Aikido is a Japanese martial art currently practiced throughout the world. Behind the powerful catapulting throws and immobilizing locks and pins of Aikido lie some very simple principles: remove yourself from the direct line of your enemys attack, and through the absorption and deflection of the force of the attack, your enemy is taken out of balance and defeated by the energy of his or her own aggression. Aikido does not use strength against strength, but stresses body and mind relaxation to direct the opponents force away. Because its main purpose is not to take the offensive in injuring or harming the opponent, Aikido has often been called a "nonviolent" martial art. In daily prac ...

  • Alexander Popes The Rape Of The Lock - 1,658 words
    Alexander Pope's The Rape Of The Lock The Rape of the Lock: Serious Stuff Alexander Pope's mock heroic epic The Rape of the Lock appears to be a light subject addressed with a satiric tone and structure. Pope often regards the unwanted cutting of a woman's hair as a trivial thing, but the fashionable world takes it seriously. Upon closer examination Pope has, perhaps unwittingly, broached issues worthy of earnest consideration. The Rape of the Lock at first glance is a commentary on human vanity and the ritual of courtship. The poem also discusses the relationship between men and women, which is the more substantial matter in particular. Pope examines the oppressed position of women. Infring ...

  • An Era Of Punk - 1,711 words
    ... harlton, Rock music, 208). Smith also had a new version of the song My Generation in which she shouted obscenities, making it clear to every one that her generation was new and angrier. Most of the Ramones songs did not last more than two minuets, but it was arguably the most exhilarating half-hour in rock and Roll. The Ramones very simple, fast high-energy music and monotone vocals became a prototype for much punk rock to follow (Charlton, Rock Music. 208). The Ramones were the first of the New York Bands to tour extensively, and their appearances in England in 1976 was later cited by many English punk bands as the original inspiration for that countrys do-it-yourself rock revolution.

  • Bone Fractures - 1,435 words
    Bone Fractures Bone Fractures Thank goodness it's only a fracture. I thought it might be broken. People often think that a fracture is less severe than a broken bone, but fractures are broken bones. To understand why bones break, it helps to know what bones do and what they are made of. The bones of the body form the human frame, or skeleton, which supports and protects the softer parts of the body. Bones are living tissue. They grow rapidly during one's early years, and renew themselves when they are broken. Bones have a center called the marrow, which is softer than the outer part of the bone. Bone marrow has cells that develop into red blood cells that carry oxygen to all parts of the bod ...

  • Don't Fly That Flag Near Me - 382 words
    Don't Fly That Flag Near Me In case some people have not heard that the Civil War is over, maybe we need to let them know. In the past few years, as one looks around his city, or watches for bumper stickers on cars, he may easily spot a sign that someone still supports the Confederate party. What I have learned, and what I believe is that the Confederacy was all about racism, control, and selfish people who felt they should be able to dominate whomever they wanted, especially slaves. When the symbols of the Confederates are seen, an automatic judgment is developed of the person flashing those symbols. Even though their intention may be to send a message of rebellion, the Confederate flag wil ...
