  • Aristotelian Philosophy - 1,330 words
    Aristotelian Philosophy Aristotle argues that happiness, function and morality are closely connected and that virtue is dependent upon all of them. To fully comprehend Aristotles theory, we must first examine each of these qualities and then determine how they are related to one another. The deliberation process will show that all of these qualities can be strongly connected, but not exclusively. Happiness, function, morality and virtue can exist independent of one another. The first deliberation is to define happiness. Happiness is the highest of all practical goods identified with " living well of doing well"(100). According to Aristotle, Every art and every inquiry, and similarly every ac ...

  • Cambodia - 1,983 words
    Cambodia The Impact of the Past on the Present Cambodia, then, like so many other nations in the developing world, is an agricultural country, and, in terms of the cash incomes of its people, desperately poor. In the past, Cambodia was able to earn foreign exchange to pay for imported goods by selling agricultural surpluses-of rice and corn, for example-or plant crops, such as pepper, rubber, and cotton.

When the fighting died down, Cambodian trade became lively again, but more informal, which benefited many individual traders but deprived the government of money it needed to pay for essential services, like electricity, ...

  • How Can A Native Minority Hold On To Their Heritage When They Are Thrust Into A Majority White Society, Ignorant To Their Val - 1,090 words
    How can a Native minority hold on to their heritage when they are thrust into a majority white society, ignorant to their values? The author of Green Grass Running Water, Thomas King, examines this question is his eye-opening novel. By the cleaver way he sculpts his novel and the unique plot lines, he seems to leave the answer to the readers interpretation. Consequently, I found it a struggle to come up with any concrete answer. Maybe because their isnt one, and if there is I am not the most qualified person to pass judgment. I have never had to compromise my culture, because I am part of the cultural mainstream. I am an English speaking, American born, white male with very loose ties to my ...

  • Internet In Russia - 1,475 words
    Internet In Russia Russia has always been a country full of contradictions, as it was said once in a movie: They weep when getting married, and sing going off to war. Large cities, such as Moscow and St. Petersburg, are showing off the latest models of executive cars (always full option) and open up new boutiques of top couturiers almost daily. Nevertheless as soon as one gets outside the urban area, running water is considered a luxury. Technology as a whole was never Russias strongest asset. This means that some technological advances considered a must-have in the west are still ignored in this country. For example, the quality of agricultural machinery is almost at the pre-historic level. ...

  • Islam - 1,500 words
    Islam Islam ISLAM Islam is comprised of three essential beliefs: The belief in God, obeying his moral laws, and believing in the after-life. Submission to God is directly followed by obeying the moral standards of everyday life. The Qur'an makes morality reign supreme and ensures that the affairs of life, instead of dominated by selfish desires, be regulated by norms of morality. These laws are the standard by which God determines the life of the believers, and the disbelievers on the Day of Judgement. The belief in life after death not only guarantees success in the Hereafter but also makes this world full of peace and happiness by making individuals responsible and dutiful in their activit ...

  • Mexicans - 550 words
    Mexicans HOW IS THE MIDDLE CLASS MEXICAN VIEWED IN THE UNITED STATES? "The middle Mexican sector comprises approximately 30 percent of the nation. Like its upper-income counterparts, this sector is largely urban and has educational levels superior to the national average.

Plastic products are also made from oil. From the 1900's and up oil has been used mostly in cars and boats. Oil is the most used natural resource we use (ChemCom 155). It is used the most because it is easy to find. The next most used source is nuclear energy. Nuclear power plants started to emerge in the 1950's. Russia had the first power plant (Keeler 39). Nuclear power plants are safe and very clean. Nuclear power is also very efficient. For every one million people in a city a nuclear power plant only needs 3 kilograms of uran ...
