- Abortion Crtical Analysis - 543 words
Abortion - Crtical Analysis Ellen Willis has written this article based on personal views, opinions and experiences. She openly expresses that the issue of abortion is a womans issue and should therefore be discussed with the woman in mind. She accepts the fact that others consider abortion to be a life issue and understands their feelings as to why they argue this point. It is recognized very early on that Ms. Willis is a feminist arguing the fact the fetus occupies a womans body to become a human being. She is trying to emphasize that in the pursuit to save a fetus that the womans feelings, body and life are being forgotten. The article continues on arguing the point that the fetus should ...

- Buns Of Steel Sex Appeal - 993 words
Buns of Steel Sex Appeal John Darcey Darcey 1 Professor Garber Hm 46 March 5th Buns of Steel and Sex Appeal It seems in the past decade more and more attention has been put on firm buttocks and thighs on women. Susan J.Douglas wrote an article called Flex Appeal, Buns of Steel, and the Body in Question. It addresses this fad in a woman's point of view. Douglas, who was a teacher and free lance writer has had many of her article appear in The Village Voice.

Douglas points out in her article all of the pu ...

- Evolution Of Rap Music - 2,575 words
... Signed: THE EVOLUTION OF RAP MUSIC Rap is a form of urban music, which emerged from the hip-hop movement of the South Bronx, New York, in the early 1970s. The hip-hop culture was comprised of the popular street activities of African-American youth during the 1970s such as: styles of language, street-slang colloquialisms, graffiti, break dancing, music and their colourful attitude and fashion. Rap music is therefor a subculture to the hip-hop movement, or what many describe as the soundtrack to accompany the other facets of the hip-hop culture . This means that any changes that take place within the hip-hop culture itself will be reflected in the subculture of rap music. Since the 1970s ...

- Execution Of Juveniles - 1,353 words
... . There are forty jurisdictions in the U.S. that allow capital punishment at all; thirty-eight states, and the federal government on the civilian and military side. Of these forty jurisdictions nineteen allow the death penalty for those sixteen and older (Promises, 1999), five for age seventeen year and older, and the remaining sixteen states only allow execution for adults, those eighteen and older (Streib 2000). Even though these statistics seem to be somewhat spread out among the states the truth is that the majority of the sentences are handed out by judges in three states; Texas, who has already been mentioned as the leader in the juvenile execution topic, Florida, and Alabama (Stre ...

- Internet Censorship - 928 words
Internet Censorship Internet Censorship The Internet is a wonderful place of entertainment and education, but like all places used by millions of people, it has some murky corners people would prefer children not to explore. In the physical world, society as a whole wants to protect children, but there are no social or physical constraints to Internet surfing. The Internet Censorship Bill of 1995, also known as the Exon/Coats Communications Decency Act, has been introduced in the U.S. Congress. It would make it a criminal offense to make available to children anything that is indecent, or to send anything indecent with intent to annoy, abuse, threaten, or harass (Stop the Communications ... ...

- Kurt Cobain - 1,078 words
Kurt Cobain On April 9th the world woke up to the news of Kurt Cobain's suicide. Those who followed the grundge music of Cobain's band, Nirvana, were angry, but not surprised. With songs such as "I Hate Myself and Want to Die" and constant references to suicide and drugs, suicide was the obvious explanation for his death. Kurt put it best when he said, "I'm thought of as this pissy, complaining, freaked-out schizophrenic who wants to kill himself all the time." (Bozza) To many people, Cobain just joined the club of rock stars who self-destructed. Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, and Brian Jones set the precedent. The Seattle Police Department confirmed the conclusion everyone had al ...

- Police Brutality - 1,264 words
... The officers felt like they had the power to do anything they wanted without any reason at all. In the incident with Shawn Robbins where the officers falsely arrested a man for trying to keep the streets clean in his neighborhood, an off duty officer had a bad day and took his aggression out on the first person to push the wrong buttons. These cops do what they do because they have a badge, a gun and because they can. With police brutality on the rise and public awareness becoming more frequent, what can the public do? Must the people in the United States live with police brutality? What about a citizen who is in the wrong place at the wrong time? Or even a person arrested for asking som ...

- Stereotypes In Media - 1,614 words
Stereotypes In Media My topic will address how minorities and women are misrepresented in the media and how they are stereotyped. I plan to show how minorities and women are depicted or stereotyped unfairly in the news, on television, and in general. In an article from USA Today magazine, it illustrated that if you have watched, listened to, and read media all your life, you probably have filed these images into your thinking process: African-Americans are mostly rap stars, professional athletes, drug addicts, welfare mothers, criminals and/or murderers; Latinos are illegal aliens, ignorant immigrants who take, but give little back to the country and can't even speak the language, or drug-cr ...

... ndividuals affixed with a racial designation identifying ancestral background as well as American citizenship, dual nationality arises as an issue under diplomacy. Dual nationality presents problems particularly in nations that consider any descendents of their homeland citizens regardless of their current residence. For example, in Vietnam, negotiations affecting the erection of a liaison office between Hanoi and Washington, D.C. were stalled. The intended act was to establish full diplomatic relations between both nation, but Vietnamese officials refused to agree to terms mandating U.S. notification in the matter that an American diplomat must be detained in Vietnam.
