  • Descriptive Essay Of Oppermans Pond - 445 words
    Descriptive Essay Of Oppermans Pond An escape, a release, an excursion from normal day to day activities: Oppermans Pond. My childhood is as a novel with the pages filled of memories of this serene Pond and its surroundings. The Pond is no more than 3/10ths by 1/10th of a mile in dimensions. It is set back among luscious green and yellow pine and maple trees and surrounded by regularly mowed green grass. The mix of green shades are similar to a young child's drawing using 5 different bright green and yellow markers. I lived across the street from this pond for 17 years before leaving to live in Dallas last year. I spend many hours simply thinking on top of a rock protruding from the ground t ...

  • On Golden Pond By Ernest Thompson - 616 words
    On Golden Pond By Ernest Thompson On Golden Pond, by Ernest Thompson, is the outside performance that I chose to attend and critique. Michael Oberfield directed and acted in this performance of On Golden Pond. Though the production was produced in cooperation with the Graham Agency, actors from the community and acting students from the local Academy of Arts played active rolls. Set Design was done by Russel A. Thompson and costume design by Jane Bingham. I was put under the impression that this play was a comedy with a serious twist, but after viewing the performance it seemed more like a serious play with a little comedy to keep the audience interested. An elderly couple, Ethel and Norman ...

  • Toss A Pebble In A Pond See The Ripples Now Drop Two Pebbles Close Together Look At What Happens When The Two Sets Of Waves C - 1,054 words
    Toss a pebble in a pond -see the ripples? Now drop two pebbles close together. Look at what happens when the two sets of waves combine -you get a new wave! When a crest and a trough meet, they cancel out and the water goes flat. When two crests meet, they produce one, bigger crest. When two troughs collide, they make a single, deeper trough. Believe it or not, you've just found a key to understanding how a hologram works. But what do waves in a pond have to do with those amazing three- dimensional pictures? How do waves make a hologram look like the real thing? It all starts with light. Without it, you can't see. And much like the ripples in a pond, light travels in waves. When you look at, ...

  • A Night In The Rain - 438 words
    A Night In The Rain A Night In The Rain There he stood, in amazement, gazing at, what a few moments ago, had been his ticket to freedom. Then flash, in the blink of an eye, the world was turned upside down. When I finally got myself together I was laying about 20 feet from the wreckage. I stood up and in front of me lay tons of graceful carnage strung across the field like a satin sheet after a restless night. Fire was everywhere illuminating the night with its delicate destruction. I could see through its glow about four or five train cars flung off of the tracks in such a matter that to the unknowing it would have looked like they had been placed for a special scene. Yet this was not the c ...

  • A Sociological Look At Jaws - 1,690 words
    A Sociological Look At Jaws The movie I choose to review was Jaws, which is one of my favorites and a timeless classic. A traditional story about man against beast takes place on an island that depends on its summer tourist business. When the summer season in threatened by a series of shark attacks three men are sent out to track down a great white shark. The three main (human) characters are Brody (Roy Scheider), the police chief, who came to the island from New York looking, so he thought, for a change from the fears of the city. There's Quint (Robert Shaw), a caricature of the crusty old seafaring salt, who has a very personal reason for hating sharks. And there's Hooper (Richard Dreyfuss ...

  • A Traveler Is Resolute And Independent - 1,973 words
    A Traveler is Resolute and Independent Tenets of Wordsworth in Resolution and Independence Romanticism officially began in 1798, when William Wordsworth and Samuel Taylor Coleridge anonymously published Lyrical Ballads. This work marked the official beginning of a literary period which had already begun many years before 1798. A work is defined to be of a certain period by its characteristics, therefore to be considered a Romantic work, the work must contain aspects which are termed "Romantic." A few typical "Romantic" aspects are: love of the past; sympathy to the childs mind; faith in the inner goodness of man; aspects of nature having religious, mystic, and symbolic significance; and reco ...

  • Acid Rain And North America - 1,891 words
    Acid Rain And North America In the past century, one of the greatest threats to North America's aquatic ecosystem has been the widespread acidification of hundreds of thousands of waterways. Acid rain has effected plant and animal life within aquatic ecosystems, as well as microbiologic activity by affecting the rates of decomposition and the accumulation of organic matter. What causes this poisonous rain, and what can be done to improve North America's water quality and prevent future catastrophes? To answer these questions, we must first examine the cause and formation of acid rain, as well as understand ways to decrease or prevent its formation. Formation of acid rain. Acid deposition, mo ...

    An Uphill Climb From the viewpoint of Sharon My husband? Yeah, he was a great guy. I havent seen him in a long time. I guess thats because, well, heaven and earth are so far apart.

  • Anne Bradstreet - 460 words
    Anne Bradstreet Anne Bradstreet's poetry reflects Puritan thinking like sunlight softly shimmering on a quiet country pond. There is life and much activity just below the quiet surface, yet one must look below to discover its depth. As the first notable poet in American literature, it is fitting that this young woman, a product of an atypical upbringing, should use her extensive education to express thought and emotion well beyond the writings of her time. Still, her writings always reflected the natural values and religious foundation of her time period. In the poem IN REFERENCE TO HER CHILDREN she writes , " I had eight birds hatched in one nest, Four cocks there were, and hens the rest. I ...

  • Aquaculture - 1,393 words
    Aquaculture Aquaculture is the farming of aquatic organisms in fresh, or salt water. A wide variety of aquatic organisms are produced through aquaculture, including fish, crustaceans, mollusks, algae, and aquatic plants. Unlike capture fisheries, aquaculture requires deliberate human intervention in the organisms' productivity and results in yields that exceed those from the natural environment alone. Stocking water with (juvenile organisms), fertilizing the water, feeding the organisms, and maintaining water quality are common examples of such intervention. Most aquacultural crops are destined for human consumption. However, aquaculture also produces bait fishes, ornamental or aquarium fish ...

    Arguement On The Provision Of Cable Television On College Campuses There is a Problem with Having Cable Television on College Campuses Eleven oclock on a Tuesday night, walking through the brightly lit halls, many doors wide open in a dormitory complex on the campus of Bowling Green State University, one can see that the only light that emerges from the open doors is the constantly changing illumination coming from television consoles. Passing from door to door, sounds such as sports cheers, gun shots, screams of people being slain, and moans of woman in ecstasy can be heard. Although many students have the time to watch the television, many of them dont. The televisions utter no words of ma ...

  • As A Child, On Any Hot, Sunny Summer Day There Was Always A Good Chance That My Family And I Would Be Going Swimming Going To - 1,101 words
    As a child, on any hot, sunny summer day there was always a good chance that my family and I would be going swimming. Going to our cousins house to swim in their pond were exciting times. We parked in their driveway and walked through the very tall pine trees that went up as far as the eye could see and as far down. The trees seemed like an entrance into another world. If I looked up, I barely saw the tips of the trees swaying back and forth by a light breeze. I faintly smelled the light scent of pine that symbolized the country smell. I walked thorough the trees toward the pond and I entered a new world. If I turned around, I couldnt see the house anymore. It was so quiet; there was not a p ...

  • Boethius - 1,879 words
    Boethius Throughout history, every society has searched for some way to express its feelings and beliefs. Music has been an integral part of virtually every culture, so it is quite natural for people to have written about this subject. More literature has survived than actual music, which leaves modern scholars with the job of translating, interpreting, and trying to understand the writings of people prior to modern musical notation. Anicius Manlius Severinus Boethius wrote and translated many books on subjects he felt were important to the education of future generations. Of particular interest is his book, The Fundamentals of Music (De institutione musica). Even though this book is no long ...
