  • Differences Between High School And College - 435 words
    Differences Between High School And College I have noticed a few differences between high school and college. I spent all four years in high school, and graduated this past year. I have only spent a half of a semester in college, not giving me a full evaluation of college. In high school, you couldnt do that much as a freshman. You really didnt know what to expect coming from middle school, just that it was a new place to learn. Following the rules was a necessity. If you didnt get in good with a couple of teachers, the rest of your high school years could be treacherous. Although, if you could get through your freshman year, the other three are a breeze. During your sophomore through senior ...

  • Equality For Women: A Critique Of Why Sports Is A Drag - 870 words
    Equality For Women: A Critique Of Why Sports Is A Drag There are many women in today's society that fight for equality in just about everything. They want the same job opportunities, the ability to be given a good deal on a car, and the right to choose to stay home .

  • History Of Baseball - 745 words
    HISTORY OF BASEBALL There has been much speculation about the origin of baseball. In 1907 a special commission decided that the modern game was invented by Abner Doubleday, a West Point cadet, at Cooperstown, N.Y., in 1839. One hundred years later the National Baseball Museum was opened at Cooperstown to honor Doubleday. Historians, however, disagree about the origin of baseball. Some say that baseball comes from bat-and-ball games of ancient times. It is a matter of record that in the 1700s English boys played a game they called base ball. Americans have played a kind of baseball since about 1800. At first the American game had different rules and different names in various parts of the cou ...

  • Home School - 1,673 words
    Home School Before the beginning of American public schools in the mid-19th century, home schooling was the norm. Founding father John Adams encouraged his spouse to educate their children while he was on diplomatic missions (Clark, 1994). By the 1840's instruction books for the home were becoming popular in the United States and Britain. The difficulty of traveling to the system of community schools was provoking detractors. At this time, most of the country began moving toward public schools (Clark, 1994). One of the first things early pioneers did was set aside a plot of land to build a school house and try to recruit the most educated resident to be the schoolmarm. This led to recruiting ...

  • How Does Your Child Act - 1,468 words
    How Does Your Child Act? How Does Your Child Act? First of all I think that in the back of every parents mind are questions concerning their childs future. Like will it be a doctor, a lawyer, or the next president of the United States. But with these questions there are also more questions that are not discussed freely like what if it is a bad child or it is uncontrollable? And will it do drugs or try alcohol and smoke cigarettes? Another question that might be in the back of a parents mind is about its childs sexual orientation. I know this may seem far fetched to some people but if I had a child right now in todays world, that question would not be in the back of my mind but in the front. ...

  • Lisa Ogrady - 1,960 words
    Lisa O'Grady Softball and Much More I was sitting alone on the front step of the school, worried about what I was getting myself into. It was the first day of softball tryouts my junior year, and I never even met my coach. I skipped the team meeting two weeks prior to tryouts, so I never got to meet her face to face. She is a gym teacher at the school, so I had seen her around all of the time. I was just too intimidated by her, so I never tried to talk to her. It turns out that this person that I was afraid to talk to at one point, has now had the biggest impact on my life, and taught me about softball and so much more. Before I move on, I would like to give you some insight into the aspects ...

  • Polystyrene Bead Molding - 557 words
    Polystyrene Bead Molding Introduction On September 7th and 14th of 2000 my lab partners and I conducted the polystyrene bead molding project. My lab partners are Josh Dick, Mike Ward, and Keith Matlock, and we conducted the procedure in room W126 of the Kansas Technology Center. We were to attempt to make polystyrene bead molds using two different methods. In theory we would be able to perform the bead molding. Theory Polystyrene bead molding can be performed in two ways. One way is to fill the mold 25 to 30 percent full and then applying heat, either boiling water or baking it. Another way is to boil the raw beads, dry the beads, fill the mold with them, and then heat it in an oven. We were ...

    Problem Solving Like most people I have problems, but like some of those people running away from the problem is not an option. Sometimes thinking of a solution thoroughly isnt always the first thing on my mind.

  • Sports Vs Women - 1,952 words
    Sports Vs. Women Sports are a very important part of the American society. Within sports heroes are made, goals are set and dreams are lived. The media makes all these things possible by creating publicity for the rising stars of today. Within society today, the media has downplayed the role of the woman within sports. When the American people think of women in sports, they think of ice skating, field hockey and diving. People do not recognize that women have the potential to play any sport that a man can play, with equal skill, if not better. Right now in some part of America, there is a women who aspires to play hockey for the New York Rangers, but what she does not realize is that the med ...

    The All American Girls Professional Baseball League The All-American Girls Professional Baseball League Before we told our daughters that they could be anyone, or anything they wanted to be, we told them that they could only be what was acceptable for women to be, and that they could only do things that were considered "ladylike."

These women broke free of the limitations that their family and society had set for them, and publicly broke into what had been an exclusively male sport ...

  • The Vietnam War - 1,770 words
    The Vietnam War The United States made the right decision in joining the war efforts of the South Vietnamese. The only mistake was that the U.S. should have done everything in its power to win the war as quickly as possible. The U.S. was obligated by the Truman Doctrine to contain communism. Truly the best way to contain it would be to defeat it. This war was a person changing experience. With all the horrible pain and gore the soldiers had to see and endure, they could never be the people they once were. Supporters and protesters back in the U.S. were causing chaos. The Doves and the Hawks, the Doves against the war and the Hawks supporting the war, divided a country. In the face of death, ...

    Title IX A Brief Overview of Title IX and how it effects both Men and Women Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 is the Federal law which prohibits sex discrimination against the students and employees of any educational agency that receives Federal financial assistance(Mathews I-1). From June 23, 1972 all the way up until today, there has been a constant struggle as to what genderequality actually is. Title IX has had a profound effect on both male and female students on college campuses all across the country, because as it gives one group of students opportunities, it, in a sense, is responsible for stealing away those same opportunities from another group of students.

  • Tool Of The Trade - 1,045 words
    ... , because theyve drilled out the heart of it. You may remember the time when [pro player] Graig Nettles put a bunch of rubber "superballs" inside his bat, and the bat broke, and all the balls spilled out. Nettles attributes the persistence of corking more to head games between the players than to any advantage a corked bat might have. Players have also been known to rub their bats with ham bones or glass bottles, a process called "boning," in an attempt to harden the bat. However, this practice doesn't seem to produce any benefit beyond the psychological either. In early days, some hitters would illegally hammer nails into their bats so that the ball would strike "iron." Even if the bat ...
