  • 2001 A Space Odyssey - 1,265 words
    2001 A Space Odyssey 2001 : A Space Odyssey. I am going to be talking about Stanley Kubricks '2001: a space odyssey', focusing (obviously) on the music, but also the sound. I will also be incorporating elements from Mark Millers article "2001 - a cold descent" 2001: A Space Odyssey, introduced in 1968, is a high concept production that begins by tracing the 'Dawn Of Man', which eventually leads to a journey through the solar system by a crew of astronauts aboard a spaceship bound for Jupiter. The accompanying soundtrack plays as much of a role in the development of suspense and intrigue as the actors performances. Three decades later, the soundtrack remains one of the most recognized in cine ...

  • Grunge - 1,579 words
    ... r, Jeremy, focused on school shootings and dysfunctional kids. It tried to make the point that more focus was needed on problem children. It was almost a foreshadow of what happened years later at Columbine. Everyone wanted a piece of the Grunge explosion, except Seattle. The people of Seattle quickly became fed up with Grunge, to say the G word in Seattle got angry stares and labeled you as an out of towner(Hype). All the exposure had disrupted the quiet city and the locals were none to happy about it. The bands even turned that into their music, with bands like Mudhoney singing Everybody loves us/Everybody loves our town/That's why I'm thinking of leaving it/Don't believe in it now.../ ...

  • How Does Unconscious Differ From Consciousness - 1,002 words
    ... surgery has the effect of bringing long-forgotten (unconscious) experiences back to awareness; (2) removal of specific parts of the brain seems to abolish the retention of specific experiences in memory; (3) the general probability of bringing unconscious or preconscious data to awareness is enhanced by direct electrical stimulation of a portion of the brain structure called the reticular formation, or the reticular activating system. Also, according to what is called brain blood-shift theory, the transition from unconscious to conscious activities is mediated by localized changes in the blood supply to different parts of the brain. These biopsychological explorations have shed new ligh ...

  • Imagine This Scenario: You And Another Fifteen Thousand Hockey Fans Decide To Spend The Night Watching The Washington Capital - 1,388 words
    ... as solely a political act aimed at getting attention. This quote sums it all up. Terrorism has nothing to do with the victims personally; they're just the unlucky ones who have become victims just so someone could get the attention of the world. This need of attention has caused a whole new problem with terrorism. Instead of wanting to get a lot of people to watch, there are those who now want a lot of people dead. This is frightening considering that the younger generations have been softened to murder and purposeful destruction, which means that the less they think it's wrong, the more they'll start doing it. The terrorists today most likely grew up with the idea that death was bad an ...

  • Mrs Dalloway - 2,887 words
    Mrs Dalloway While writing and revising Mrs. Dalloway, Virginia Woolf was corresponding with E.M. Forster, who was working on A Passage to India. In September of 1921, she records in her diary: ``A letter from Morgan [Forster] this morning. He seems as critical of the East as of Bloomsbury, & sits dressed in a turban watching his Prince dance'' (Diary 2.138). His novel came out well before she finished hers; she read it and noted, ``Morgan is too restrained in his new book perhaps'' (Diary 2.304). A note of the Anglo-Indian society that dominates A Passage to India resonates in Mrs. Dalloway's background, sounded in part by returning Indian traveler, Peter Walsh, but also heard and overheard ...

  • Ozone Layer - 1,860 words
    Ozone Layer Some scientists have proclaimed that the human race is slowly depleting the layer of ozone which protects us from ultra violet light. In reality, humans have very little control of the world in which we live. Scientific evidence has shown that there is very little depletion in the ozone layer and the contributions the human race makes towards this depletion is and always will be insignificant compared to nature. The theories of the depletion and what it would cause are flawed and contradictory. Where and when did this global killing threat begin? It all began in the mid 1960's when the United States government began pursuing super sonic transports. These would be planes which wou ...

    ... ne hole is firmly established to be halogen chemistry....There is not a full accounting of the observed downward trend in global ozone . Plausible mechanisms include heterogeneous chemistry on sulfate aerosols [which convert reservoir chlorine to active chlorine - R.P.] and the transport of chemically perturbed polar air to middle latitudes. Although other mechanisms cannot be ruled out, those involving the catalytic destruction of ozone by chlorine and bromine appear to be largely responsible for the ozone loss and are the only ones for which direct evidence exists .

  • Review Of The Deftones White Pony - 1,026 words
    Review Of The Deftones White Pony The Deftones are a Sacramento, California based heavy/alternative metal band. The band consists of Chino Moreno (vocals), Stephen Carpenter (guitar), Chi Cheng (bass) and Abe Cunningham (drums). The Deftones have built a reputation on their unique sound, which combines elements of punk, hardcore, hip hop, and heavy metal. Being the huge Deftones fan that I am, and after being subjected to the impressive media blitz preceding the release of their third album White Pony, I just had to purchase it the day of it's release. Upon first listening to the cd I was a little disappointed with the band's effort. This new cd was nothing like their previous two releases. ...

  • Taoism - 2,396 words
    Taoism In order to go into Taoism at all, we must begin by being in the frame of mind in which it can understood. You cannot force yourself into this frame of mind, anymore than you can smooth rippled waters. But let's say that our starting point is that we forget what we know, or think we know, and that we suspend judgment about practically everything, returning to what we were when we were babies when we had not yet learned the names or the language. And in this state, although we have extremely sensitive bodies and very alive senses, we have no means of expressing what is going on around us. You are just plain ignorant, but still very much alive, and in this state you just feel what is wi ...

  • The Beginning Of The End For The Postal Monopoly - 1,636 words
    The Beginning of the End for the Postal Monopoly The Beginning of the End for the Postal Monopoly The Postal Service has been a government agency since 1775, and since 1872 it has been illegal for anyone but government employees to deliver a letter. Because of this and many other reasons, the USPS is a prevalent example of a government-controlled monopoly. The United States Postal Service is the largest postal service in the world. With over 800,000 employees (778,171 being part-time lobbyists), it is the USs largest employer. In the past few years, the Postal Services profits have risen and productivity has declined. This essay will discuss why this is happening, and look deeper into the go ...

  • The Night Sky - 3,925 words
    ... The Night Sky Long ago, people looked into the night sky and wondered what they were looking at? How far away are those twinkles in the sky? Could they all be stars, or maybe, could they be something else? What makes certain lights brighter than others, and how does distance affect their intensity? These questions and other interesting facts will be reviewed in the following pages. One of the most common curiosities regarding the night sky is distance, which can be very hard to determine. Because space is so vast, scientists must use mathematical methods to determine how far away, how large, and how bright something actually measures. However, because of the constantly changing position ...

  • The Physics Of Golf - 2,552 words
    The Physics Of Golf As anyone who has played a round of golf will attest to, the sport is based around many fundamental principals of physics. These basic laws are involved with every aspect of the game from how a player swings the club to how the ball moves through the air on its way toward the pin. It is the challenge that physics presents to the golfer that has allowed the game, and equipment used, to develop so drastically over the past one hundred years. The first golf balls used were called featheries. They were made with a horsehide cover packed with wet goose feathers. When the balls dried they became extremely hard. The major flaw with the featheries was that they could not be used ...

    Title: The Effects of Prenatal Exposure to Music on Children's Intelligence Introduction: The experiment that I wish to conduct is the effect of prenatal exposure to audio stimulation on a child's overall intelligence. There have been many studies over the past decade about the relationship between music and intelligence. Emily P. Cary (1987) discovered a correlation between gifted students and music. Students who were exposed to classical music at a young age had better coordination skills, mental ability, and problem solving ability in comparison to those that did not have the exposure to music at a young age. Psychologists have traditionally accepted that memory begins at approximately ye ...
