  • Cd Burners - 509 words
    Cd Burners When the very first MP3/CD players arrived at MP3.com last year, we fell in love. This invention that shuttled hundred-song CDs around - CDs that previously would only play on other computers - was pretty darn exciting to geeks like us. So excited, in fact, that we overlooked that half the players didn't work, and the rest lacked the barest features anyone would ask for. The honeymoon didn't last long. One look at all the CD burners dotting the suburban countryside indicated the hunger for a quality player was too strong for these half-baked first generation players to satisfy. But while major corporations like RCA and Sony were tripping over their feet trying to get a product out ...

    ... ad to quit reproducing so much, and the people who understood morals said that society would collapse if people used sex for nothing but pleasure This story is not nearly as pessimistic as some of Vonnegut's other novels, however it isn't optimistic either. The story makes the government and the scientific community the villains of the story for taking away sex. It also makes Billy the Poet a hero for rebelling against the government edict and for spreading his philosophy of pleasure through sexual intercourse. One thing that should be pointed out about this story is that it was originally written for Playboy magazine. One of the ironies of the story was after Billy raped the suicide hos ...

    - Challenges Facing Urban Transport In Asia - Construction CHALLENGES FACING URBAN TRANSPORT IN ASIA Abstract- One of the greatest challenges facing the new millennium is to effect a well integrated and environmentally acceptable solution for urban transportation.

Pricing and Finance : In urbanized areas with substantial amount of congestion caused by motorization, road pricing offers the best solution since it promotes both the purposes; it encourages that the socially efficient number of trips be undertaken and raises revenue to finance road ways and transport expansion to the efficient level.

His works include ironic comedies and the displaying of his imagination. Both writers are duly noted for their short stories. Their unique styles of writings are respectably different to a point. They are similar in the way they display their descriptions, and differ in the way they present the o ...

  • Cold War Paper - 1,201 words
    Cold War Paper The role of America at the end of World War II was where the origins of policing the world originate. America had been engaged in a very costly war in terms of dollars as well as lives. But, despite the expense the United States came out of World War II better than any other nation that was involved. The Second World War was a battle between the Allied and Axis Powers. The Allied Powers consisted of the United States, Great Britain, the Soviet Union, China, and France. This war was seen as the fight against Nazi Germany, and therefore resulted in a majority of the battles fought on German and Russian soil. The aftermath left the Soviet Union in bad shape. Close to twenty milli ...

  • College Choosing - 969 words
    College Choosing Choosing a college during the final years of high school can be a long strenuous process, full of many lifelong decisions. These decisions can be broken down into six categories. The categories are cost, entrance requirements, location, living arrangements, unique programs, and extracurricular activities. The University of Missouri St. Louis and the University of Missouri, Columbia have some similarities yet many more differences. A major concern when deciding which college to attend is cost. Cost consists of not only tuition but also books, room and board. If one would like to attend the University of Missouri, Columbia for a residential student the composite cost for tuiti ...

    ... o schools for having children collect items like soup labels or sales receipts from certain stores have increased by 83%, and corporate-sponsored materials that claim to have some kind of instructional content have increased 963%. After factoring in a few other types of media propaganda, the overall propaganda increase between 1990 and 1999 was 303% (Molnar). The USSR also pioneered some interesting programs. One such program was a School to Work Act. In the 1958-1959 school year, the Soviet Union passed new reform laws that required all pupils in the three senior grades of the secondary schools to work in Soviet factories or farms for one-third of their school time (Noah).

  • Constantine Brancusi - 1,565 words
    Constantine Brancusi Constantine Brancusi I found it very difficult to find information on Constantine Brancusi in hard copy, therefore, you will see at the end of my paper that all of my sources are websites. The little information I did locate on the artist was very, very little. Therefore, I combined the small amount of information with some research I found on artists that were strongly influenced by Brancusi. Brancusi's imprint on contemporary sculptural practice ranges from the dissemination of furniture-oriented sculpture and the emerging topos of architectural folly to new paradigms for public art. At the same time many postwar artists engaging in a dialogue with his legacy have read ...

  • Cultural Shock - 803 words
    Cultural Shock The day was finally here. It was November 11, 1990, the day that our family was to go to Land Of Liberty. I heard so many different things about this country called United States of America and I was warned that it would be nothing youve expected. The plane ride did not seem as long as it was; partly because I was lost in my own thoughts with hopes and anxiety. I thought about what I will become in this massive country I was headed and how soon I will adapt to this new culture and people. Every bits of hope I had faded as we drove to our new house after the plane landed. All I saw was open space and emptiness; something I did not expect or was prepared for. I lived in urban pa ...

Most of the action takes place inside of Willys disturbed mind, as he relives crucial scenes from the past even while groping through present-day encounters. The rest of the action takes place in the kitchen and two bedrooms of Willys modest Brooklyn home. It was once in a suburban area but is now crowded in by high apartment buildings, "The way they boxed us in here. Bricks and windows, windows and bricks" (Act 1, Scene 1). The kitchen has a table in it with three chairs and a refrigerator. No other fixtures are in the kitchen. There is a living room in the house, which is not fully furnished. The boy ...

    Deliverance A true survivor can only depend on himself. The novel deliverance is a story about four characters each with different views on surviving. Every man in the world can relate to one of the three secondary characters in the novel Deliverance.

That of a "functional" family in gangs replaces the dysfunctional family that many of these youths arrive from. The gang provides support and even love that may be lacking at the homes of many of these youths. Furthermore, the gang also provides something that is also not easy to come by for many of these youths. That thing being money. Financial opportunities are very abundant in the gang lifestyle. These opportunities are much more lucrative than part time jobs. However, these opportunities do not come without drawbacks, as some of them are extremely danger ...

    Evironmentalism Evironmentalism: The Next Step Broad Social Change Through Personal Commitment Introduction In the last thirty years, America has witnessed an environmental revolution. New laws like the 1963 Clean Air Act and the 1974 Safe Drinking Water Act forged new ground in political environmentalism. Social phenomena like Earth Day, organized by Dennis Hayes in 1970, and the beginning of large-scale recycling, marked by Oregon's 1972 Bottle Bill, have help change the way Americans think about the environment. As we approach the third millennium, however, we must reconsider our place on the planet and reflect on our efforts and progress towards a sustainable society. As global warming b ...

  • Farming Problems - 1,251 words
    Farming Problems The complexion of farming is changing radically. The land cannot support as many farm families as it did in an earlier time. Small farms are being consolidated into larger ones. General farms, with several kinds of crops and a barnyard of farm animals, are yielding to specialty farms that concentrate on a single major crop. Family farms are declining; corporate farms are increasing. Efficiency is growing. Crops are changing. Techniques are improving. Just as the train, tractor, truck, and airplane changed farm life in the past, the computer and robotics are expected to change farm life in the future (AOL, 1997). And the outcome of this is that during the early 1980's and con ...

    Frank Lloyd Wright The way you live is being directly influenced by Frank Lloyd Wrights innovations in residential architecture. Mr. Wrights organic architecture was a radical departure form the traditional architecture of his day, which was dominated by European styles that dated back hundreds of years or even millennia. He contributed the Prairie and Usonian houses to the familiar of American residential design, and elements of his designs can be found in a large proportion of homes today. While most of his designs were single-family, his collections include houses of worship, skyscrapers, resorts, museums, government offices, gas stations, bridges, and other masterpieces showing the diver ...
