  • Thousand Cranes By Yasunari Kawabata - 1,658 words
    ... ly maintains throughout the course of the story. The last words of the book reinforce this continued loathing- " 'And only Kurimoto is left.' As if spitting out all the accumulated venom on the woman he took for his enemy, Kikuji hurried into the shade of the park." I think that it can safely be concluded that this is one aspect of his past that Kikuji will never change his position on. As Chikako cleans the cottage, "The sound of her broom became the sound of a broom sweeping the contents of his skull, and her cloth polishing the veranda a cloth rubbing at his skull." This extraordinary metaphor gives us great insight into Kikuji's attitude towards his past and his memories. There are t ...

    BARRON'S BOOK NOTES ERICH MARIA REMARQUE'S ALL QUIET ON THE WESTERN FRONT ^^^^^^^^^^ERICH MARIA REMARQUE: THE AUTHOR AND HIS TIMES Born Erich Paul Remark on June 22, 1898, he grew up in a Roman Catholic family in Osnabruck in the province of Westphalia, Germany--a city in the northwest part of what is now West Germany. He adored his mother, Anna Maria, but was never close to his father, Peter. The First World War effectively shut him off from his sisters, Elfriede and Erna. Peter Remark, descended from a family that fled to Germany after the French Revolution, earned so little as a bookbinder that the family had to move 11 times between 1898 and 1912. The family's poverty drove Remarque as a ...

  • Becoming A Knight - 1,127 words
    ... g knight had to either join one of the great military orders, such as the Knights Templars, or hire out to a richer noble as a member of his private army. As a man-at-arms, he could always hope to make his fortune by getting his share of the profit, that was sometimes won in battle. He could also hope to get money by capturing a rich noble in combat and holding him in for ransom. It is obvious that knighthood was not easy for those who were not secure financially, and those who did not have a desire to protect the weak, aid the poor, seek justice, or honor pure womanhood. A knight had to agree to live by this code during his quest in becoming a knight. The many obligations of knighthood ...

The conjunctiva contains cells that can rapidly respond to allergens, leading to redness, itching, tearing or discharge, and a general inability to wear a contact lens. A common source of allergy is a preservative found in the contact lens solutions. Thimerasol was used frequently as a preservative in the past, ...

She emerged from the shadow of the poplars, limping slightly but looking otherwise undamaged. Are you all right? she asked, cocking one eyebrow at him. Aye, fine. I'm going to shoot that horse. He gathered her in briefly, wanting to assure himself that she was in fact whole. She was breathing heavily, but felt reassuringly solid, and kissed him on the nose. Well, don't shoot him until we get home. I don't want to walk the last mile or so in my bare feet. Hey! Let that alone, ye bugger! He let go of Claire a ...

  • Gun Control - 1,211 words
    Gun Control The debate over gun control has developed into a very complicated issue. Several different groups have suggested limiting the use of guns and others have proposed to supporting free gun use. On one side, people who use some form of gun control imply that guns are responsible for too many deaths and injuries in the United States. They propose that laws be passed to make guns more difficult or impossible for ordinary citizens to own. On the other side are those people who oppose all or nearly all forms of gun control. This paper will propose three different issues to argue against the element of gun control. First, we need to control the people who use the guns, not the guns themse ...

  • Microscopic Examination - 371 words
    Microscopic Examination MICROSCOPIC EXAMINATION OF METALS In this experiment, our aim is examining the microstructure of metals. By studying microscopic structures of metals, we determine which material fits best to a given application. We used the most common method, optical technique, to examine the microstructure. We used a small specimen cut from the metal to be examined. To be able to see the structure clearly, we first cleaned and polished the specimen. First we start polishing with emery paper no: 1 and some finer grades. One should be careful about the coarse abrasive particles and striations from them. Cleaning and rotating the specimen 90 during the transfer can prevent these. The ...
