  • A Lesson From Oliver - 5,155 words
    A Lesson From Oliver by David Jorgensen Like any other morning I was up at four, the day Oliver met with his violent death. At four in the morning the grass is wet. Now, it's still wet at 6 a.m. and even at seven, and these tend to be the hours of choice for most people wishing to appreciate the phenomenon of grass wetness. But it's a tragedy of economics that, when work starts at 5 a.m., one is not afforded the same time-options for grass appreciation as members of the sane world. Nor was this tragedy confined to my having to appreciate the wet grass while in a metabolic state more suited to hibernation. Four a.m. was my only chance to absorb all of northern Ontario's summer morning treasur ...

  • Although Musicians Had Been Recording Fiddle Tunes Known As Old Time Music At That Time In The - 4,440 words
    Although musicians had been recording fiddle tunes (known as Old Time Music at that time) in the southern Appalachians for several years, It wasn't until August 1, 1927 in Bristol, Tennessee, that Country Music really began. There, on that day, Ralph Peer signed Jimmie Rodgers and the Carter Family to recording contracts for Victor Records. These two recording acts set the tone for those to follow - Rodgers with his unique singing style and the Carters with their extensive recordings of old-time music. Jimmie Rodgers Known as the "Father of Country Music," James Charles Rodgers was born in Meridian, Mississippi on September 8, 1897. Always in ill health, he became a railroad hand, until ill ...

  • American Beauty - 343 words
    American Beauty American Beauty ... Look Closer My first reaction after seeing Sam Mendes' feature film directorial debut, American Beauty, is that it disturbed me. I walked out of the theater in a virtually bewildered state of mind. This is the kind of movie that makes you wonder about what really is beautiful, and where can you find this beauty. Is it something that is in the happenings of an ordinary day or in the special people that we choose to share our lives with? American Beauty opens with Lester Burnham's (Kevin Spacey) declaration that, "I'm 42 years old. In less than a year I'll be dead. Of course I don't know that yet. In a way I'm dead already." In this simple manner the film es ...

  • Birches - 1,142 words
    Birches Birches Pauletta Brooks Introduction to Literature Chris Cox 11-22-99 I believe so much of poetry enlists the senses, beginning with the sense of sound. Whether its the rhythmic flow of the poem or the mere need to recite the words for a clearer understanding. The sense of sight cant help but participate while one reads a poem. Its like asking an artist to paint how he feels. Imagery is a key part of poetry creating a visual understanding. In the end poetry give a voice to the unsayable in our lives and indeed to life itself. After reading Birches by Robert Frost, my senses were reeling. The poem reads beautifully and is soothing to the ear. The imagery also paints a scene I have wit ...

  • Children's Psychological Adjustment To Entry Into Kindergarten - 1,388 words
    Children'S Psychological Adjustment To Entry Into Kindergarten Michael Burkhardt Page 2 From an ecological perspective, early childhood development occurs within the multiple contexts of the home, the school, and the neighborhood, and aspects of these environments can contribute to the development of adjustment problems (Bronfenbrenner, 1979). A child's psychological adjustment to entry into school for the first time can have a significant impact on the level of success achieved later in life. Children rated higher in school adjustment by their elementary school teachers, as a result of improved cognitive development, showed positive attitudes toward school resulting in better school perform ...

  • Ecology - 1,165 words
    Ecology 1. The main purpose of this exercise is to see if College Woods Natural Area is experiencing succession, and to observe and document the tree community structure. Other purposes of this exercise are to examine College Woods and measure the densities of different species of trees as well as diameters of stems, and use these measurements to determine if the varying measurements lead to varying information about this tree community. Another purpose is to determine all species present, as well as the abundance of each species. We will also analyze the size structures of the trees to predict future change in College Woods Natural Area. 2.a. The extent of the estimation of absolute density ...

    ... se we assume diameter at breast height (DBH) is a good indicator of tree age. This assumption may be false, because DBH doesn't have to directly relate to age. Some species grow in diameter faster then they grow in height. Also some species grow rapidly in diameter while they're juveniles and then stop growing in diameter and start growing in height, or vise versa. There isn't one set speed that a tree grows in diameter that could possibly make it a reliable method of determining age. In most cases a larger diameter does mean an older tree. But not in all cases and not when trying to determine juveniles from adults or middle-aged trees. 4.a. To determine if a species is increasing there ...

England occupies all of the island east of Wales and south of Scotland, another division of the United Kingdom.

  • Environmental Philosophy - 1,103 words
    Environmental Philosophy Many authors throughout history have expressed their, or societys, yearning towards a simpler life: a life without responsibilities or obligations, a life without worry or regret. Sigurd Olson expresses such a yearning in his essay "Contemplation", where through reading Lao Tzu, he had discovered that in order to understand and relate to wilderness, we only need a contemplative mind, which is simple and easy. He suggested that life in wilderness is a continual contemplation and communion with God and Spirit. Moreover, in his essay, "Wholeness", he suggested that "wholeness is being in tune with the wind, sands, and stars," and "wholeness is part of simplicity and sil ...

  • Fiery Cross - 2,642 words
    Fiery Cross Gideon darted out his head like a snake, aiming for the leg of the rider just ahead. Seas! Jamie wrenched the big bay's head around before he could take a bite. Evil-minded whoreson, he muttered under his breath. Adam Chisholm, unaware of his narrow escape from Gideon's teeth, caught the remark, and looked back over his shoulder, startled. Jamie smiled and touched his slouch hat apologetically, nudging the bay up even with Chisholm's long-legged mule. A bit edgy, he said, with a nod toward the horse's head. One notched ear stuck out of the bay's head at a right angle, the other lay flat back. Best I take him on and let him work it off, eh? Chisholm looked warily at the bay's roll ...

  • Film Studies - 1,239 words
    Film Studies Within the Introduction to film Studies classes we are able to explore the visions interpreted as we view a movie. One such movie in which I have analyzed is American Beauty, written by Alan Ball, and directed by Sam Mendes. American Beauty is a movie that leaves a lot left to explore. The content of this paper is not to find the meaning but rather take a journey with an unorthodoxed lead actors role throughout a wonderful movie. Lester Burnham (Kevin Spacey), is a middle-aged man whose life is already destined. Through his eyes, we see the trivial motions in which he travels. His mundane lifestyle leads us to believe that there is little hope or yet realization that this man ca ...

  • Frost, Robert - 1,211 words
    Frost, Robert Robert Frost, perhaps the greatest American poet of the twentieth century, has brought himself great recognition. Many critics have tried to find a faulty side to his writing, but they have had a difficult time because his writing romanticizes the rural simplicity that he loved while probing into the mysteries of the universe (Estep 2). Three areas of criticism covered are: a speaker's decision in choosing, a poem broken down into three sections, and Frost's use of metaphors and style in his writing. Born in San Francisco, but raised in New England, many of Robert Frost's poems are representations of his experiences in the northeastern parts of America. He was unsuccessful in c ...

  • Frosts Home Burial - 1,876 words

This aspect of his works, as well as his great love of nature and landscape depiction, both contribute to the environment that he has created within Home Burial. The reader of Home Burial does not achieve a comprehensive view of the psychological landscape of the two characters through first person accounts; however, throughout the dialogue and the interaction of the two characters, the reader may come to infer the major psychological attributes o ...
