- Could Gambling Save Science: Encouraging An Honest Consensus - 4,913 words
... section is somewhat dense, and may be profitably skimmed on a first reading.) ASSETS Imagine that John bets Mary $5, at even odds, that it will rain next Monday. Since they don't entirely trust each other, John and Mary put the bet in writing and each give $5 to Frank, a trusted third party. John has essentially paid $5 for an I.O.U. that says "Worth $10 If Rain Monday", since if he wins he gets $5 from Mary and his own $5 back. Mary's I.O.U. says "Worth $10 If Not Rain Monday". On Tuesday one of them can cash in their I.O.U. for $10 from Frank. This standard betting scenario can be improved by breaking it into different transactions; first create the I.O.U.s and then sell them. Replace ...

- Masque Of Red Death By Poe - 402 words
Masque Of Red Death By Poe In "The Masque of the Red Death", Poe leads one event into another often. He uses much symbolism, and in the paragraphs below, I will show you it. In the first couple of paragraphs however, I will summarize the plot and state the theme. In this plot, Poe begins by talking about the Red Death, basically setting the stage for later events in the story.

- Short Stories - 2,369 words
Short Stories Nathaniel Hawthorne, "Young Goodman Brown" Goodman Brown was not asleep in this short story. As I read, I believed that Goodman did indeed meet the devil in the forest. If he had indeed dreamt about the trip he was sent on and meeting the devil, I think his nervousness would have been described in more detail then it was. Concentrating more on the anxiety he was feeling would have led the reader to believe that the events were not real. I also saw this story as an allegory. I saw the allegory after reading the story two times. I think it is centered on Goodman Brown having a bumpy past and that he wants to go beyond his past and reach heaven. The characters names also show the ...
