  • Fouridation - 1,629 words
    Fouridation In 1931 at the University of Arizona Agricultural Experiment Station M. C. Smith, E. M. Lantz, and H. V. Smith discovered that when given drinking water supplied with fluorine, rats would develop tooth defects. Further testing by H. T. Dean and E. Elove of the United States Public Health Service confirmed this report, and stated that what is known as mottled tooth. Mottled tooth is a condition in which white spots develop on the back teeth. Gradually the white spots get darker and darker until the tooth is eroded completely. This was believed to be caused by fluorine in drinking water (Behrman pg. 181). A strong uproar was heard when this was released and people wanted all fluori ...

  • Gender - 1,859 words
    Gender Definition When studying "gender," the first task is to clearly define what it is not. Gender simply can not be defined by one's anatomy. In other words, gender is not categorized as male or female. Stating this fact is of the utmost importance, because most people would define gender in such a way. In fact, some dictionaries actually define gender as "See sex." So now that I have withdrawn that determinant, I must conclude that gender is something which is determined socially. Unfortunately, the concept is far too broad to have one clear definition. It can be studied in so many different ways, and it is because of this that there are a multitude of theories about it. Learning about d ...

  • Great Shah Abbas And His Buildings In Isfahan - 893 words
    Great Shah Abbas And His Buildings In Isfahan The Great Shah Abbas and His Buildings in Isfahan The Great Shah Abbas I reigned from 1588-1629. He was a ruler who relocated the capital from Saljuq to Isfahan, in the center of the country. This was his attempt to centralize political and religious authority, develop capital, and institute Safavid Iran as a world power, both economically and politically.

  • J D Salinger - 1,251 words
    ... that Salinger is a literary phenomenon who created the dialect of a generation (qtd. Salinger CA 5-8: 998). For the first time, a generation had an author who seemed to understand them, who somehow could capture their values, aspirations, and ultimately define their outlook on society. Maxwell Geismar stated that Salinger accomplishes this task of perceiving the young generations in a way that nobody since F. Scott Fitzgerald [has] done as well (qtd. in Salinger CA 999). Salinger and his novel The Catcher in the Rye became a voice of a generation, a generation who believed that phoniness is the cardinal sin. Aside from the hero Holden Caulfield from The Catcher in the Rye, the short stor ...

  • Men And Women Were Created Equal - 693 words
    Men and Women were Created Equal Men are not superior to women, they are equal in every way. Although it is true that society has stereotyped women into traditional roles, this preconceived notion, is totally false. Action to promote the concept of equality in our society needs to be taken. Women have been fighting for equality for many decades. As a result of this battle, some amazing transformations have taken place amongst the female gender. Women have become educated and over the last few decades have started to take active roles and their rightful place in society. They have made major inroads in working opportunities, including government, science and even the military. They are reshap ...

Music with about 60 beats per minute can shift conscouisness from the beta toward the alpha range, enhancing alertness and well-being. While most people respond physically and emotionally to music, a few go beyond that. For some music therapy is mystical experience used to transport them into altered states of consciousness. Patients sometimes report transpersonal experiences with music, and the impression it leaves may linger for months or even years. These experiences can have a therapeutic effect by changing the individual at a deep spiritual level. Effec ...

  • Mrs Whartons Mask - 624 words
    Mrs. Wharton's Mask Ethan FromeMarius Bewley "Mrs. Wharton's Mask," The New York Review of Books, Vol. 11, No. 3. 1964 7-9 Rpt. In Twentieth Century Literary Critixism Ed. Dennis Poupard. Vol. 27. Detroit: Gale, 1988. Bewley's thesis is that Ethan Frome reflects Wharten's private experiences in. her life. He supports this weakly by showing no examples of Wharten's life and why the book reflects it. He only simply tells us that she had a divorce a year before the book was written. This research didn't help someone who was doing a paper on Wharten's life influences while writing Ethan Frome. I found this source in the Bangor Public Library in the reference section. Blake Nevius, "Ethan Frome' ...

  • Poverty In Us - 1,084 words
    Poverty In US Poverty in the United States is getting worse each day and not enough is getting done about it. The readings from "Babies and Benefits" by Sheila Holbrook-White, the article on poverty by Michael J. Paquette, and "Keeping Women And Children Last" by Ruth Sidel made me view the issues of poverty in a different way. I never realised what kind of people were living in poverty, and the true reasons why they are there. What amazes me the most is how much these people need help, and how little the government is doing to help them. The government should set up work programs for these people to help them get better jobs and make enough money to survive. The politicians in Washington D. ...

  • Ralph Emerson - 1,267 words
    Ralph Emerson From wise men the world inherits a literature of wisdom, characterized less by its scheduled education than by its strength and shortness of statement. Thought provoking and discerning, Ralph Waldo Emerson gave a cynical world an unbiased perspective on human frailty. Emerson first and foremost was a poet. He has not written a line which is not conceived in the interest of mankind. He never writes in the interest of a section, of a party, of a church, or a man, always in the interest of mankind." (Carlyle 19) From Emersons poetry the reader is able to derive a central theme of idealism and reality. Emerson was "a poet that sings to us with thoughts beyond his song." (Howe) His ...

  • Sex In Society - 1,901 words
    Sex In Society Sex plays a major role in today's society. From television, radio, music, and advertisements, to video games, the Internet, and even art and pictures, all forms of media use sex to help sell their products. With the public being exposed to so many different types, the overuse and exploitation of sex is common. Is sex a useful tool, or a ploy to get the attention of the public? Before discussing sex in the media, one must understand why it has come to be that people use sex as a gimmick. The writing of modern history has resulted in a viewpoint that is nothing short of a stag party. The history of women is ignored, hushed up, and censored in the most literal sense of the term. ...

    ... was for naught. As a result of widespread support, well planned campaigning, and nearly non-existent opposition, Oklahoma became the first state to impose term limits on its state legislature on September 18, 1990 (Benjamin 142). In order for a successful grass-roots movement on term limits to materialize, both funding and organization is needed, and these goals require the backing of trained professionals and activists. The term limitation drive consists of a national and several local headquarters; leaders of the latter run daily operations and plot strategy in their respective states while they are assisted with logistical support and general guidance by the former. In recent years, f ...

Transcendentalism prescribed to the divinity of man. The Transcendental religion exhibited an abiding faith in mans genius and goodness, and consequently, this led to a platform that supported vigorous demostration of individualism the new moral rights and moral prerogatives of each moral person even if it subverted the will of the majority or sabotaged the will of the establishment. In Civil Disobedience, Thoreau preaches this value with arresting ardor to inspire individualism. ...
