  • A Line Of Promises - 1,314 words
    A Line Of Promises A Line of Promises Many times simple objects in peoples lives can come to represent a part of themselves. The object can become an integral part of a persons identity. In Wedding-Ring by Denise Levertov, the relationship between a woman and her old wedding ring is explored as a way to intertwine the womans life with the rings meaning. Through the ring, the woman identifies herself. The wedding ring is wishfully transformed from a complex symbol of promises to a simple gift of friendship. In the opening of Wedding-Ring, Levertov sets the tone of the poem, by exemplifying the interaction between the speakers feelings and the wedding ring. My wedding ring lies in a basket / a ...

  • Aenied - 1,486 words
    Aenied Many argue that throughout Aenied, Virgil develops Aeneas to be a boring and unheroic character; always acting as he should with apparently no power to act in any other way. Occasionally sidetracked, Aeneas is prodded and redirected by the gods toward his destiny. Aeneas' mother, Venus, constantly interjects to lead Aeneas toward his fate. It is she who leads him away from the fallen city of Troy " I had twice-ten ships, and my goddess-mother showed me the way."(I, 541-542) Mercury also sets Aeneas straight from his deviating course by telling him to leave his love Dido "What are you pondering or hoping for while squandering your ease in Libyan lands." (IV, 362-363) Mercury criticizes ...

  • Books Wuthering Heights - 930 words
    Books- Wuthering Heights An author's particular style and technique, is usually greatly attributed to their personality and individual preference. In the case of Emily Bronte, she was an extremely withdrawn and private person; and it is because of this, why she turned to books as a form of expression. In her notorious Wuthering Heights, she uses books as an important way to illustrate a number of key issues; most notably character, and the theme of love. Although subtle in her method, Bronte passion is what she employs as a tool in the construction of the epic tale. In the novel Wuthering Heights, the first time we are given reference to books is during chapter 3, prior to Lockwood's nightma ...

  • Divisibility Argument - 805 words
    Divisibility Argument This paper will discuss the dualisms Divisibility Argument. This argument relies on Leibnizs Law and uses a different property to prove the distinctness of brain states of mental states. Mary, who is a materialist, presents several objections to that argument. Her main objection corresponds to the first/third-person approach. She believes that Dave presents that argument only from the first-person approach, which is introspection, and totally disregards the third-person approach, which is observation of another mind. Marys objections will follow by the Daves response on them from the dualists point of view. The purpose of the Divisibility Argument is to prove that menta ...

  • Economics Of Aquaculture United States - 1,436 words
    Economics Of Aquaculture United States Economics of Aquaculture United States Aquaculture is the fastest growing agricultural industry in the United States. In 1990, there were over 100 species cultured; eight species accounted for approximately 70% of total culture, with over 3400 aquaculture operations in the United States. This trend is driven by increased demand for fisheries product and reduced yield from traditional fisheries landings (National Research Council, 1982). Given the increased demand, there is a significant potential for job creation in an expanded aquacultural industry. The estimated U.S. Total Aquaculture Production (including freshwater) has more than doubled from 139,88 ...

  • Founding Fathers - 452 words
    Founding Fathers? The Constitution For a majority of Americans the U.S. Constitution (w/ the Bill of Rights, and the Declaration of Independence) is viewed almost as a holy document. These pieces of wood pulp decorated with some borderline poetic text have been elevated to a level which prevents us from drastically changing them for fear of being accused of being blasphemous. While I don't question the true value of these documents, I do question our reasons for keeping them in place. Do we revere these documents because they came from such great men, or is it because we fear what might happen to our society in the event that we do drastically change them. Must the ideals be written down to ...

  • Song Of Solomon By Toni Morrison - 845 words
    Song Of Solomon By Toni Morrison The book called Song of Solomon, by Toni Morrison, deals with many real life issues, most of which are illustrated by the relationships between different family members. One archetypal relationship that Morrison includes in her book is the father:son relationship. Although it is obvious that Morrison does talk about this topic, it is not so obvious what she is trying to say about it. So, one might ask, how does the author establish the father:son relationships throughout Song of Solomon and do they fit some sort of archetype? To answer a question such as this, it would be beneficial to examine the actual father:son relationships throughout the book. One estab ...

Lately momentum investing has been all the rage, and many have been suggesting that the old methods are no longer valid. But, as we have indicated all along, in the long run, the old rules will apply and those who ignore them may look great for their 15 minutes of fame, but in the end, they ignore the old rules at their peril. Two methods that have stood the test of time are value and growth investing. These are the two methods that we should pay the most attention to. You can use one or the other, or a combination of the two. We should apply both to our decisions, however, in each case we apply them t ...
