  • Across Five Aprils - 792 words
    Across Five Aprils Across Five Aprils This Newberry award nominated book, written by Irene Hunt, tells the story of the "home life" of her grandfather, Jethro, during the Civil War. Not only does it give a sense of what it is like to be in the war but also it really tells you exactly what the men leave behind. Jethro is forced to make hard decisions, and face many hardships a boy his age shouldn't have to undergo. This is an admirable historical fiction book that leaves it up to the reader to decide if being at home was the superior choice or if being a soldier in the war was.

    ... ealth) Solutions College administrators often identify student alcohol abuse as one of the biggest challenges they face. Yet, funding for prevention programs, on the increase until 1994, has never averaged more than a few dollars per student, not counting staff salaries. Experts complain that many alcohol education programs seldom involve more than a few posters, some brochures, and an Alcohol Awareness Week, all of which students say are largely ignored. Bill DeJong, director of the Higher Education Center for Alcohol and Other Drug Prevention in Boston, thinks colleges have to change the way they recruit students. If their view books show scenes of small groups socializing rather than ...

    Great Gatsby Symbolism The Great Gatsby, by F. Scott Fitzgerald, is a novel about one man's disenchantment with the American dream. In the story we get a glimpse into the life of Jay Gatsby, a man who aspired to achieve a position among the American rich to win the heart of his true love, Daisy Fay. Gatsby's downfall was in the fact that he was unable to determine that concealed boundary between reality and illusion in his life. The Great Gatsby is a tightly structured, symbolically compressed novel whose predominant images and symbols reinforce the idea that Gatsby's dream exists on borrowed time. Fitzgerald perfectly understood the inadequacy of Gatsby's romantic view of wealth. At a young ...

Wilson, after all, was not afraid of the wounded lion and carried on his shauri without cowardice. Wilson, too, reaped the rewards of the hunt, in Margot's affection, which is the hard physical turning point for Francis; after Margot has proven her meaninglessness to Francis, he has no choice but to go on in the abysmal grasp of Margot or to make an effort to change everything about himself. Francis sees in Wilson what he would like to become, a man who can control the out ...

Hemingways The Sun Also Rises details the principle of an "alienation from society that had been forced upon by the circumstances of the time" (Spiller 271). In this case, it describes a young boy alienated from society because of his involvement in World War I, the "...loss of faith and hope...", and "...collapse of former values..." that occurs (Hart 284). His earlier works can sometimes be described as containing "characteristic influences of naturalism" (Bradley 1339). This can be reflected in his "presentation of the strict relations between environment and fate..." (1339). Later in his career, Heming ...

  • Pre Electrical Staged Lighting And Lighting Effects - 1,482 words
    Pre Electrical Staged Lighting And Lighting Effects PRE-ELECTRICAL STAGE LIGHTING AND LIGHTING EFFECTS There is a common notion that stage lighting is the youngest of the stage arts, having suddenly been developed since the advent of electricity. Electricity was the final link in a chain of development stretching far into the past. True, stage lighting has come a long way since the dawn of electricity but its foundations were thoroughly established during the three centuries before Edison. Colored light, spotlights, translucencies, and dimming were well known before the incandescent lamp. This paper seeks to identify and explain some of the most prevalent forms and techniques of stage lighti ...

In San Mateo High School, teachers were not satisfied with these ways of teaching their students. They were trying to teach them to think and express their thoughts in the form of either writing or oral communication. As a result of going to the California high school, David's daughters were many times taken for the students from the private school, although they really went to a "very public" one. Because of the great emphasis on the weaknesses in the educational system of the U.S., critics tend to ignore its strengths and positive q ...

  • Railroads Effect Chicago - 1,194 words
    Railroads Effect Chicago annon The nation network of railroads laid from 1848 through the Civil War, and the steam powered locomotives that traversed them, supplied Chicago with vast new markets, resources, and people who quickly transformed it from a quiet Frontier village into a highly populated industrial powerhouse.

By the 1833 when the city was incorporated, a warehouse, dry good's store, and hotel had all been built. William B. Ogden, the first mayor of Chicago was also the first to attempt to give Chicago ...

The two share the same nucleic DNA, but differ in terms of their mitochondria DNA, which is vitally important for the regulation of the cell. The media and the press ignored this fact, and thus claimed that Dolly and her mother were genetically identical, which sparked a fury of outcry all around the world. The technique of transferring a nucleus from a somatic cell into an egg cell of which the nucleus had been removed, called nuclear transplantation, is an extension of research that had been ongoing for over 40 years. Up until now, scientists thought that adult cells could not be reprogrammed ...

  • Spirituality Versus Evil By Oconnor - 1,549 words
    ... er. Julian is a person very unlike his mother. He wants to be different from his mother because she represents everything from the South which affronts his sense of decency and decorum (Browning 101). He is a college graduate and is very much in touch with himself. You could also say that he is also a very open minded person that knows what kind of world he lives in (OConnor 341). He makes it a point opposing his mother all the time and trying to bring her head down from the clouds to the harsh reality that she does not live in the plantation anymore with the all of the slaves around. Furthermore, he is always looking for a way to teach his mother a lesson, and he usually would prefer a ...

This group of 4,000 soldiers, crammed behind narrow fortifications, faced more than twice their number. Pakenham's assault was doomed from the beginning. His men made perfect targets as they marched precisely across a quarter mile of open ground. Hardened veterans of the Peninsular Campaign in Spain fell by the score, including nearly 80 percent of a splendid Scottish Highlander unit that tried to march obliquely across the American front. Both of Pakenham's senior generals were shot early in the battle, an ...

The field trumpeters (i.e., military trumpeters) and kettle drummers classed with them did not form a guild, owing to their knightly character and the circ stance that their calling was considered not a trade but a free, knightly art.17 Perhaps this opinion caused a longer separation between the trumpet and the orchestra than was necessary, but the trumpet did not possess the versatility to play much mor han octaves and fifths, and these were terribly out of tune and horribly inconsistent, until the trumpet makers of the seventeenth century began to make great ...
