- A Magazine Is Not A Mirror Have You Ever Seen Anyone In A Magazine That Looked Even Vaguely Like You Looking Back Most Magazi - 691 words
A magazine is not a mirror. Have you ever seen anyone in a magazine that looked even vaguely like you looking back? Most magazines are made to sell a fantasy of what we're supposed to be. They reflect what society deems to be a standard, however unattainable that standard is. That doesn't mean you should cancel your subscription. Women need to remember that it's just ink on the paper. Whatever standards you set for yourself: how much you weigh, how hard you work out, or how many times you make it to the gym should be your standards, not someone else's. Magazines portray unrealistic images and women need to learn to accept themselves. Women are now risking their health for the sake of beauty. ...

- Day - 1,559 words
Day3 I went to the library again today, hoping can find some journal or some reference books on Portalsite. But I knew it is quite difficult to find some materials in this specific field. I would still give a shoot. Half an hour past, yet I still didnt see a word about portalsite in the reference section. The reference books on computer in the library were pretty outdated (no offence^ ^), so I was not able to find anything about the newly developed field in Internet. All I could find is some general introduction to portalsite in some life-stylistic periodicals. The materials I found were surely no strong enough to support my point, or I could say they couldnt give me some point to talk about ...

... illenium Copyright Act, were enacted to protect against indirect copyright infringement (7). There is virtually no way to enforce copyright laws on MP3s because it's so easy to indirectly violate them. When considering what the Internet is, a vast collection of information interconnected for the public, the need for safe harbors becomes apparent. However, it's these same safe harbors that provide ways to escape liability when an individual does violate copyright laws. Web pages are connected through hyperlinks and search engines so even though a web site might not contain MP3s, it can be linked to other web pages that do (9). This makes it difficult to zero in on the web site that is vio ...

... on▓s East End Whitechapel in the space of four months in 1888. His victims were all prostitutes, their throats cut and their bodies mutilated. The murders seemed as most usually are, sexually motivated. Jack the Ripper frustrated Scotland Yard, as they had little to no clues to the killer▓s identity.

The American Reaction To The Halocaust In the years of the Second World War, American leaders were aware of the plan of the Germans to exterminate all the Jews in Europe, yet they did not act to save them. The attitude in society and the state of the economy in the years leading up to the war made for conditions that did not make saving them likely. Most Germans despised the Weimar Republic, which held control of Germany at the time they signed the Versailles Treaty. This treaty crippled Germany after they lost The First Great War.

- Women In Ww - 1,814 words
Women In WW2 World War II marked a retreat from the existing notions of women's capabilities and proper roles. With the men gone at war, women had to take over the work force. Government propaganda encouraged women to do their patriotic duty by leaving their homes and entering the workplace. At the wartime peak in July 1944, 19 million women were employed. This was an increase of 47% over the level in March of 1940. For the first time, married women outnumbered single women in the work force. Women over thirty-five made up 60% of the increase in the labor force. Girls between 14 and 19 added another 17.3% to the total (Anderson 4). Women took over the common jobs of building ships and planes ...
