  • Ban Smoking In Public Places - 588 words
    Ban Smoking In Public Places Banning smoking in public places Before people start smoking they have a choice, but once you are a smoker that choice goes and you then become an addict. Smoking is the inhalation and exhalation of the fumes of burning tobacco. The dried leaves of plants are smoked in a pipe or in cigar form, but mostly in cigarettes. European explores arriving in the western hemisphere observed native American smoking leaves of the tobacco plant in pipes, and the practice was introduced onto England in the 1500s. The general attitude was that smoking relieved tension and produced no ill effects. Epidemiologists soon noticed that lung cancer was on the increase. The public at la ...

  • Aids In Detail - 2,050 words
    AIDS In Detail Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). Today, despite the continuing production of better antibiotics since the discovery of penicillin, we are facing an infectious disease against which all these drugs are virtually powerless. This disease is spreading inexorably, killing more people and more people each year. AIDS does not know no national boundaries and does not discriminate by race or sex. It is rampaging not only throughout the United States, but also through Africa, India, China, Russia, Europe, South America, and the Caribbean countries. Even infants and children are at risk. AIDS is similar to the bubonic plague or the "BLACK DEATH" that killed perhaps one-third in ...

  • Anne Frank - 1,372 words
    Anne Frank Anne Frank I can remember the first time I knew of Otto Frank's idea for the Secret Annex. Otto had been paying attention to the Nazis for quite some time, and had noted their strong desire towards the expansion of Nazi rule. I myself must admit that I knew nothing of the terror we were about to face. Soon Jews were wearing Yellow stars on their chests, not allowed into public places, not allowed to associate with non-Jews, and finally being deported to "work camps". Since Otto and his family were Jewish, I began worrying about their safety. I had worked for Otto at the Dutch Opetka Company in Amsterdam for quite some time, and in that time, we had become close friends and I admir ...

  • Anxiety Disorders - 1,208 words
    Anxiety Disorders Anxiety is a normal reaction to a threatening situation and results from an increase in the amount of adrenaline from the sympathetic nervous system. This increased adrenaline speeds the heart and respiration rate, raises blood pressure, and diverts blood flow to the muscles. These physical reactions are appropriate for escaping from danger but when they cause anxiety in many situations throughout the day, they may be detrimental to a normal lifestyle. An anxiety disorder is a disorder where feelings of fear, apprehension, or anxiety are disruptive or cause distortions in behavior, (Coon, 526); they are psychiatric illnesses that are not useful for normal functioning. At ti ...

  • Asbestos - 346 words
    ASBESTOS Asbestos-containing products were widely used in the construction of houses, apartments, offices and schools up to the 1970s. However, the presence of asbestos- containing products in the area in which you live, work, or go to school at is not necessarily a hazardous condition. It is only hazardous when asbestos-containing products break down and become airborne then a hazardous condition is created. In 1995, OSHA issued workplace standards for testing, maintenance and disclosure of asbestos. This caused a greater awareness of the danger for the dangers asbestos, especially in public places. This soon became more of a controversy than anything else, with some saying that asbestos wa ...

  • Body Language: Cultural Or Universal - 1,197 words
    Body Language: Cultural Or Universal? Body language and various other nonverbal cues have long been recognized as being of great importance to the facilitation of communication. There has been a long running debate as to whether body language signals and their meanings are culturally determined or whether such cues are innate and thus universal. The nature versus nurture dichotomy inherent in this debate is false; one does not preclude the other's influence. Rather researcher's should seek to address the question how much of nonverbal communication is innate and how much is culturally defined? Are there any true universal nonverbal cues or just universal tendencies modified to suit cultural ...

Upon reaching Jill, he finds that the guards have surrounded her instead of him. Finding his badge, he uses it to get himself and Jill out of the building where he frantically forces Jill into running from the ministry. Still determined that Jill and he are in trouble, he drives Jill's truck through a barricade at which point the police start chasing him. All this was over the fact that he did not know where his badge was. His paranoia about the power and scrutiny of the government lead him to creating enough of a havoc that he actually becomes a wanted man. It seems that by wo ...

  • Capitalism Reflection - 686 words
    Capitalism Reflection It seems that in the United States of America Capitalism streams with grace. For me capitalism seems to be the best way for an economy to grow. Some may say, capitalism is unfair in terms of competition and giving the best possible price to the consumer. Or that capitalism creates classes where "the rich get richer and the poor get poorer". Im no doctor of the economy, or a spokesperson for all of America, but I feel that companys can be more profitable both in an economic and a personal standpoint by running a business based on capitalism. Looking at the predicament with competition, from most of my experiences at this stage of life for me, competition has done great t ...

  • Civics Questions - 685 words
    Civics Questions 1. How is government authority in the United States limited? Give one example. The government can not interfere with those rights granted to the people through the Constitution or the Bill of Rights. The Supreme Court is there to protect our individual rights and freedoms. 2.What is the difference between absolute rights and relative rights? No person has an absolute freedom of speach; they are not free to say whatever they like. We do have a relative freedom of speech though, we may say whatever we like as long as it does not interfere with the rights of others. 3. Do all of the rights guarented by the Constitution apply to all people in the United States? Explain. Most rig ...

  • Civil Rights - 1,047 words
    Civil Rights The 1960's were one of the most significant decades in the twentieth century. The sixties were filled with new music, clothes, and an overall change in the way people acted, but most importantly it was a decade filled with civil rights movements. On February 1, 1960, four black freshmen from North Carolina Agriculture and Technical College in Greensboro went to a Woolworth's lunch counter and sat down politely and asked for service. The waitress refused to serve them and the students remained sitting there until the store closed for the night. The very next day they returned, this time with some more black students and even a few white ones. They were all well dressed, doing the ...

  • Civil Rights - 1,585 words
    Civil Rights Civil rights are freedoms and rights guaranteed to a member of a community, state, or nation. Freedom of speech, of the press, of religion, and of fair and equal treatment are the basic civil rights. The constitution of the United States contains a Bill of Rights that describes simple liberties and rights insured to every person in the United States. Although the Bill of Rights is the first ten amendments to the Constitution, civil rights were not always respected to all human beings, especially women and blacks. When the constitution was first written, many Americans understood the meaning of the famous inscripture all men are created equal to mean that all white males were cre ...

  • Culture Ruled By Social Norms - 227 words
    Culture Ruled By Social Norms Our culture is ruled by social norms. In America it is expected that we abide by these unwritten laws. Whether viewed by a small group of people or society as a whole, breaking such guidelines could have devastating effects. I choose to do my experiment with the least intimate group of people; total strangers. I feel that testing a norm that is shared by society, as a whole is the only effective way to understand peoples responds. It is customary to go to the end of the line; a norm violation would be to cut in front of people that have been waiting. I did this in very open, public places to record the sanctions people place on me. I did this with total stranger ...

  • Donatello Was Quoted Saying I Was The Firsta Revolutionary I Was Creating A New Kind Of Sculpture Before The Others Were Even - 988 words
    Donatello was quoted saying I was the first--a revolutionary. I was creating a new kind of sculpture before the others were even born (www.reniassancesculpture.com). Donatello was wise beyond his years. Little did he know that he was so right. He had many of breakthroughs in marble, bronze, and wood sculpture, including the first male nude since the Romans and the very first equestrian (horse and rider) statue. Donatello can be considered a genius. He rediscovered the classical past and at the same time he took sculpting to a whole new level. Donato di Niccolo di Betto Bardi (Donatello) was born in Florence, Italy, in 1436. He came from a very humble background. His father was a wool carder. ...

  • Dreaming In The 1960s - 1,024 words
    Dreaming in the 1960s In 1962, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said his most famous words: I have a dream. He was not the only one who felt this way. For many, the 1960s was a decade in which their dreams about America might be fulfilled. For Martin Luther King Jr., this was a dream of a truly equal America; for John F. Kennedy, it was a dream of a young vigorous nation that would put a man on the moon; and for the hippy movement, it was one of love, peace, and freedom. The 1960s was a tumultuous decade of social and political upheaval. We are still confronting many social issues that were addressed in the 1960s today. In spite of the turmoil, there were some positive results, such as the civil ...
