- Martha Ballard - 1,803 words
Martha Ballard We as a society are fortunate. We have the luxury of advanced technology to include: computers, telephones, video teleconferencing equipment, cellular phones, beepers, and hospitals with the latest gadgets and gizmos. Our technology is available only because of documented historical accounts. Our idea of work is having to get in our vehicles and driving to our destination and sometimes sitting behind a desk all day to push paper; the worst any of us suffers is a traffic jam here or there or worse, a construction site. Imagine life in the late eighteenth century. People in this era had to deal with not only getting up at dawn to milk the cows, but toiling for hours on end with ...

- Alanis Morissette - 957 words
Alanis Morissette The energetic and talented new singer on the radio is not what you would call laid-back. She is in no way a "here today, gone tomorrow" singer. I believe, she has and will revolutionize the entertianment industry. The daughter of Alan and Georgia Morissette, Alanis, an Ottawa native, is one of three children in the family. She has an older brother named Chad and a twin brother named Wade. Although the name Alanis is Greek itself, Alanis Morissette has no Greek background whatsoever. As it turns out, Alan Morissette wanted his daughter to have a female version of his name, but he wasn't particularly fond of the name Alanna. One day, by chance, he spotted the name "Alanis" in ...

- Angels Of The North - 607 words
Angels of the North Angels are our guardians. They perform special acts of benevolence to help and assist people in their daily lives. Although humans may never see angels in their lifetime, they are here spiritually and play a special role in protecting them. Wolves, on the other hand, may be represented as a symbol of evil, but in fact, they are very much like angels. Like angels, wolves are watchers. They do not harm but are just there. The wolves were send as a cure to protect the people, much in the same way that angels are here to give them hope. Without hope, people are left with no desire to do anything. Angels do not need to resemble humans. In fact, in the film, Never Cry Wolf, the ...

- Coming Of Age - 672 words
Coming of Age When a boy loses his parents he is forced to become a man. Both Empire of the Sun and Night have a character, who goes through the hard times of a war camp during World War II and is forced to grow beyond his years to survive. In Empire of the Sun, written by J.G. Ballard, the protagonist's name is Jim, and in Night, written by Elie Wiesel, the protagonist's name is Elie. There is also a very prevalent controlling idea; this idea connects the two stories together. The idea is that the loss of one's parents forces children to tackle new and much more mature problems and struggles in their own lives. In these stories one can see two young boys become men from the separation from ...

- Dietrich Bonhoeffers Interpretation Of Ot - 1,773 words
Dietrich Bonhoeffer's Interpretation Of OT In reviewing the works of Dietrich Bonhoeffer, the study of the Old Testament seems to be almost non-existent. It is not until his time in Tegel Prison, nearly one year prior to his execution, that he fully commits himself to serious thought on the subject "My thoughts and feelings seem to be getting more and more like those of the Old Testament, and in recent months I have been reading the Old Testament much more than the New (Bonhoeffer, Letters, 156)." Though his Old Testament study was fairly dicey and incomplete, the contributions of his interpretation have been tremendous. Bonhoeffers distinct Christological approach to the Old Testament may n ...

- Dietrich Bonhoeffers Interpretation Of Ot - 1,691 words
... e Bonhoeffers sermon on Psalm 58 (July 11, 1937) grapples with the difficulty in understanding the biblical soundness of the desiring of vengeance. Should Christians be permitted to utilize this form of prayer? Is it biblical (Kuske 85)? The person praying this prayer must be sinless. David is permitted to pray such a prayer because Christ, the sinless one, was (as mentioned in the study of King David) in him. Because Christ is sinless, he has the right to condemn injustice. In this Psalm, Christ calls for the annihilation of evil and later enacts this in his death and resurrection. David stands in the shadow of Christ, bearing witness to him (Harrelson 129). Bonhoeffer finds a way to pr ...

- Living In Salem, Massachusetts In 1692 During The Witchcraft Trials Must Had Been An - 777 words
Living in Salem, Massachusetts in 1692 during the Witchcraft Trials must had been an uncanny event to experience. The entire witchcraft hysteria started because people were pointing fingers at each other. Innocent women and children were being accused for ridiculous reasons such as mysterious book reading and having poppets, or rag dolls, lying around the house. The way the judicial system operated in the 1600's was entirely mismanaged. It let guilty people live and innocent people die. If one was accused they were given one of two choices, they could either confess and live or not confess and be hanged. Therefore innocent people that were being accused would confess to save their life, even ...

- Mccarthy And Faulkner - 1,114 words
Mccarthy And Faulkner I will never claim to be an expert as an undergrad at anything, but in my personal opinion, McCarthy is not the son of Faulkner in the Southern Literary Renaissance. McCarthy and Faulkner share common view in the complexities of nature and its subsequent weave with the human condition. The psychological complexity of Faulkner also stems from his desire to explore the true heart of people and not their surfaces (note his Nobel Prize Speech). While McCarthy exposes personalities and creates unbelievable characterizations (the Judge) I don't personally feel that sometimes a true soul is left out. I do not believe that this takes away from his writing, but he would probably ...

- The Titanic - 1,683 words
The Titanic On April 14,1912 a great ship called the Titanic sank on its maiden voyage. That night there were many warnings of icebergs from other ships. There seems to be a conflict on whether or not the warnings reached the bridge. We may never know the answer to this question. The greatest tragedy of all may be that there were not enough lifeboats for everyone on board. According to Walter Lord, author of The Night Lives On, the Titanic could have been saved in the very beginning of the crisis when the iceberg was first reported to the bridge. If First Officer Murdoch had steamed right at the iceberg instead of trying to avoid it, he might have saved the ship. The author feels there would ...

- The Titanic Is One Of The Greatest And Most Known Boat Disaster In History On April 19, 1912, The Titanic Was Making Good Tim - 724 words
The Titanic is one of the greatest and most known boat disaster in history. On April 19, 1912, the Titanic was making good time towards New York, when it scraped against an iceberg. It sunk three hours later, before any boats could come and rescue the passengers still aboard. As we look back on the disaster today, we see many ways in which the tragedy might have been prevented, or lessened in severity. On April 19, the Titanic scraped against an iceberg leaving six big holes. They measured six feet long, six feet wide, and were located on the left side of the boat. The Titanic was originally designed so three of her twelve air-tight compartments could be filled with water and she would still ...

- Titanic - 907 words
Titanic Titanic Titanic still captures our imaginations after 85 years because her story is like a great novel that really happened. The story couldn't have been written better...the juxtaposition of rich and poor, the gender roles played out unto death , the stoicism and nobility of a bygone age, the magnificence of the great ship matched in scale only by the folly of the men who drove her hell bent throughout the darkness. Above all the lesson: that life is uncertain, the future unknowable...the unthinkable possible. 2,227 souls aboard. 1522 dead. Only 705 were saved, when 1360 or more could have been. Discover what happened that fateful night, hear how Dr. Ballard discovered the ship in h ...

- Titanic Essay - 411 words
Titanic Essay Titanic Essay Since 1912, when the Titanic sank on her inaugural voyage, there have been many theories behind the mystery of how this unsinkable ship ended up on the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean. Up until now, the theory has been that an iceberg tore open a 300-foot gash in the side of the 900 foot-long luxury liner. Even after 1985, when Robert D. Ballard founded the Titanic, the expeditions mainly focused on the beauty of the ship and not the damage it had sustained from the iceberg. Of course the Titanic is submerged in many feet of mud so searching for the damage has been impossible. Just Recently researchers were able to determine the damage to the ship by imaging the sunk ...

- Wolf Predation - 1,025 words
Wolf Predation Effects of Wolf Predation Abstract: This paper discusses four hypotheses to explain the effects of wolf predation on prey populations of large ungulates. The four proposed hypotheses examined are the predation limiting hypothesis, the predation regulating hypothesis, the predator pit hypothesis, and the stable limit cycle hypothesis. There is much research literature that discusses how these hypotheses can be used to interpret various data sets obtained from field studies. It was concluded that the predation limiting hypothesis fit most study cases, but that more research is necessary to account for multiple predator - multiple prey relationships. The effects of predation can ...

... ates that wolf population regulation is needed when a caribou herd population declines and becomes trapped in a predator pit, wherein predators are able to prevent caribou populations from increasing. The final model that attempts to describe the effects of predation on prey populations is the stable limit cycle hypothesis. This hypothesis proposes that vulnerability of prey to predation depends on past environmental conditions. According to this theory, individuals of a prey population born under unfavorable conditions are more vulnerable to predation throughout their adult lives than those born under favorable conditions. This model would produce time lags between the proliferation of ...

- Women In Combat The Idea Of Women In Combat Is Not Unusual Anymore They Should Be Able To Hold Combat Positions Beacause Alth - 696 words
WOMEN IN COMBAT The idea of women in combat is not unusual anymore. They should be able to hold combat positions beacause although physical strength matters, the military still needs the intelligence that women can bring. Also, banning women from the combat hurts their military careers. Although women account for only ten percent of the enlisted personnel (Time, 8/21/95/ Pg. 31), they are still a major part in the armed forces. Their performance recently has generated support from Congress and the public for enhancing the role of females in the military. During the Persian Gulf War, women were sent to the Middle East to fly helicopters, service combat jets, refuel tankers, and load laser-gui ...
