- Babe Ruth The Sultan Of Swat - 1,874 words
Babe Ruth The Sultan Of Swat George Herman Ruth Jr. is by far one of Americas greatest sports heroes. He is known primarily for his great baseball exploits and secondary as a man who stayed out late before every game and partied until there was no one left to party with. There is more behind the story of Babe Ruth than just baseball and parties. As a boy Ruth was your average youth who got himself into a little to much trouble and paid the price. As an adult he was a husband and a father who cared more about his family than he liked to show. George Ruth was a baseball hero and an alcoholic, but nobodys perfect. I plan on exploring Babe Ruths life and noting the good and bad points of America ...

- A Lesson From Oliver - 5,261 words
... had little wish to draw him into this conversation. I decided to change the subject quickly. "Coincidentally, yes sir. Why I'm calling, though, is to inquire about the number of outboard motors that have gone missing since last week." "Pardon me?" The tone of his voice took a sudden sinister turn that sent a twinge through my bladder. Like the rookie I was, I had made some as yet unrecognized blunder. I felt the strong urge to conclude the interview immediately, but it was too late. He knew my name. He knew my brother's name. He knew why I'd called. He knew everything. I'd have to bluff past my own ignorance. "Well, I was wondering if the police suspected some kind of theft ring being i ...

- Alexander The Great - 477 words
Alexander The Great Alexander the Great. Alexander's ideas concerning India were, at this point still sketchy in the extreme. To the Greeks, the land across the Indus was a shallow peninsula, bounded on the north by the Hindu Kush, and on the east by the great world- stream of Ocean, which ran at no great distance beyond the Sind Desert. On the main Indian sub- continent, let alone the vast Far Eastern land- mass from China to Malaysia, they knew nothing. Scylax, Herodotus and Ctesias had all written in some detail about India, but even if Alexander had read this stuff he still would not have been much smarter. By the 4 Th. century Persia had abandoned her Indian satrapies: and when it was o ...

- Apocalypses Theme - 1,893 words
Apocalypses Theme "All I smelled was rotten bodies," Texas Ranger, Roy Coffman said during his testimony at the murder and conspiracy trial of 11 Branch Davidians. The dead were found in the rubble of the April 19 fire that destroyed the compound, killing more than 75 Branch Davidians, including the sect's leader, David Koresh, and 17 children. Perhaps the worst case of the federal government's overreaching in American history, the 1993 Waco tragedy has caused Americans to ask the question of how much military involvement will citizens allow in their everyday lives before they lose their rights as individuals. In February, 1993, 4 federal agents were killed in an assault on the compound of t ...

- Descriptive Writing Hotels - 806 words
Descriptive Writing - Hotels My vision of the perfect ending to a stressful day is easily described. I walk through the front door, and I am greeted with a cheerful smile and a helping hand with my belongings. Then, a complete stranger in a tuxedo, who makes casual conversation with me, escorts me to my room. As he opens the door for me, I enter a beautifully arranged room with everything in complete order as if it has never been touched. Even the damp towel from my morning shower has been replaced by a fresh one. Later in the evening, I have the dinner of my choice delivered to me by another smiling man dressed in a tuxedo. No, I am not dreaming. This dream day can happen to anyone on any d ...

- George Herman Babe Ruth, B Baltimore, Md, Feb 6, 1895, D Aug 16, 1948, Was One Of Professional Baseballs Greatest Sluggers An - 381 words
George Herman "Babe" Ruth, b. Baltimore, Md., Feb. 6, 1895, d. Aug. 16, 1948, was one of professional baseball's greatest sluggers and probably the best-known player of the 1920s and early 1930s. As a New York Yankee, Ruth took the game out of the dead-ball era, saved it from the Black Sox scandal of 1919, and single-handedly revitalized the sport as the country's national pastime. He teamed with Lou Gehrig to form what became the greatest one-two hitting punch in baseball and was the heart of the 1927 Yankees, a team regarded by some baseball experts as the best in baseball history. Nicknamed the Sultan of Swat, Ruth started his major league career as a left-handed pitcher with the Boston R ...

- Losing The War On Drugs - 1,179 words
... nity to travel around Western Europe, and among all of the places I visit, I find Amsterdam to be one the most intriguing. Specifically, living in and watching a city function, in which drug use is considered a health problem rather than a criminal issue, will be different than anything I have ever seen. I have always been curious as to the extent of which the drug policy was abused by the people of the Netherlands, in relation to the strictly enforced drug policies of the United States. However, recent studies show that the use of both soft drugs (marijuana, hashish, and mushrooms) and hard drugs (ecstasy, cocaine, and heroine) are significantly lower in the Netherlands per percentage o ...

... partment in order to gain some insight into what is going on with terrorism in our city and how it is handled. After making several phone calls, I was finally able to reach the terrorism division of the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD). But to my disappointment, the officer on the other line told me that he was not able to discuss any of the information they had concerning terrorism and their tactics with the general public. Because of this reason, I had to settle for a detective in the police department. I first asked Detective John Doe what position he held in the police department, what he did, and how long he had been working at it. I learned that John is a detective in the Los A ...

... es! For these reasons, in order to maintain your "freedoms," you need an AK-47. Oppositions view: Gun control advocates say, that the entertainment industry is not responsible for gun violence. They claim the 1st Amendment and say, "art imitates life." My rebuttal: They can claim the 1st Amendment, but we can't claim the 2nd Amendment. Even though there was greater access to guns in the 1950's, we did not have a problem with illegal gun use. Thus, at a time when there was almost no gun control on the books, we had very few shootings. Could the entertainment industry be respon- sible for socially conditioning our youth, into violent behavior? Example: Violence in video games, "The Jerry S ...

... eparate program to determine which millennium certain dates are in. For example, the program could determine that if the year ends in numbers between 00 and 20, the date is in the second millennium. If the year ends in 21 to 99, the date is in the first millennium. This technique avoids some of the massive changes and coordination associated with the expansion approach (Martin 1997). Date logic routines also have some downsides to them. The most important one is that the "time window" can never be more than 100 years, and the length of the time window cannot change in the future. Also, system performance may slow down with this extra step for each date to be processed. On top of that, al ...
