- Mountain Biking - 379 words
Mountain Biking If you want the rush of going downhill at thirty miles an hour on two wheels with wind blowing dirt in your eyes and mud flinging all over you, then mountain biking is for you. However it isnt for the faint of heart. When you fall, you fall hard, and if you ride hard, you go through parts like a runner goes through water. Also keep in mind that mountain biking isnt for everyone. You have to want to live on the edge. The thrill is the reward for all of your efforts. So lets take a walk through a day at the course. The sun is shinning in my room as I wake up on another beautiful Saturday morning. The one thing that excites me as I rise is the fact that today I am going mountain ...

- Mountain Biking And Crew - 340 words
Mountain Biking And Crew I have chosen to write my essay on comparison and contrast by writing about two sports I enjoy to compete at: crew and mountain biking. I have been racing crew boats since the spring of 1997. I began racing mountain bikes the following spring of 1998. I plan to point out similarities and differences in the two sports. I hope to prove even thought the two sports are quite different they benefit each other. I also hope to teach you things that probably dont know about each sport. In crew it is all about teamwork the boat is only as fast as the slowest rower. But in mountain biking you are as fast as you train to be. Training for crew has to be at a time when all the ro ...

- Cause For Violent Protest - 763 words
Cause For Violent Protest Every person, everywhere, with no exceptions has experienced fear. Fear, to be afraid, has hit us all, whether it was fear of failing, or fear for your own personal safety. Fear is what keeps us on our alert edge. It kept you from jumping off the high dive when you were a child for fear you would get injured, and it kept you up late studying for fear of failing. It is the realization of consequences in the immediate or distant future. There are many forms of fear and we benefit from all of them. It never makes you do anything you do not want to do, and gets the consequences going through your head. Fear of failure in our classroom makes us work harder, and fear of d ...

Global Warming Global Warming The beginning of the Industrial Revolution brought many new, exciting inventions into our lives to simplify our lives and made them more efficient.

- Morals - 845 words
Morals That's Extreme Dude! If a person that never lived in the twentieth century visited 1997 for just one day, he or she would probably think that we are all trying to kill ourselves. Everything from sports, to music, to advertisements is extreme these days. People are doing things in sports that have never been attempted and are seemingly crazy. In advertising, people of this decade are portrayed as risk-takers, and dare-devils. There seems to be little regard for safety and a lot of regard for fun. I think that advertisers have grasped what this decade is all about, and I am proud to be a member of Generation X. Not everyone in this world is a risk-taker. I would say that most people try ...

- Mount Adams - 643 words
Mount Adams Mount Adams is one of the largest volcanoes in the Cascade Range, it is way bigger then any of the surrounding mountains. Mount Adams has been less active during the past few thousand years than its neighboring mountains of St. Helens, Rainier, and Mt. Hood, it will erupt again. In the future the eruptions will probably happen more often from vents on the summit and upper sides of Mount Adams than from vents scattered in the volcanic fields beyond. Large landslides and lahars that dont need to be related to eruptions probably will cause the most destructive, far-reaching hazard of Mount Adams. Volcanoes create a variety of geologic hazards during eruptions and when there isnt any ...

- Multiple Sclerosis - 1,931 words
Multiple Sclerosis Multiple Sclerosis is a disease that bewilders us all.. There is no known cause. We do know that MS (multiple sclerosis) is a disease where the myelin breaks down and is replaced by scar tissue. The demyelination can slow down or block the flow of signals to and from the central nervous system to the rest of the body, impairing such functions as vision, strength, and coordination.1 While we do know what MS is we still don't know why, where and when people contract the disease. It has been proven that MS generally appears between the ages of twenty to forty and it strikes women at more than twice the ratio it strikes men. Statistics have also shown that the disease strikes ...

... ximately one-third of anorexics become bulimia nervosa's. These are people who binge eat then purge themselves by vomiting. They become isolated and depressed and have a low self-esteem. What's worse though is that physically these people seem healthy but if you look close they develop finger calluses or lesions, puffy cheeks , and erosion of enamel on their teeth due to the stomach acids so frequently eating away at it. It is in everyone's best interest to avoid dieting and the other methods of losing weight that come with it because there is a major difference between dieting and having a healthy diet (food choice).
