    Watkins v. United States (1957) 354 U.S. 178 Facts: Watkins was subpoenaed to testify in a congressional hearing to investigate alleged wrong doings of the Attorney General and the department of justice. Throughout the questioning the congressional committee asked questions that could result in Watkins incriminating himself because of his political beliefs. Due to this Watkins evoked his 5th Amendment right not to answer the question. By doing so the congressional committee indicted him and the Court of appeals upheld Congress's claim. Question: Does Article one of the Constitution bestow to congress the power to interrogate citizens out of a court of law? And can the 5th amendment be used i ...

  • A Comparison Of Biographic Features In The Sun Also Rises And The Great Gatsby - 1,226 words
    A Comparison Of Biographic Features In The Sun Also Rises And The Great Gatsby Trevor Bender Mrs. Watkins AP Lit. and Comp April 12th, 2001 The writers F. Scott Fitzgerald and Ernest Hemingway included biographical information in their novels The Great Gatsby and The Sun Also Rises that illuminated the meaning of the work. Although The Sun Also Rises is more closely related to actual events in Hemingway's life than The Great Gatsby was to events in Fitzgerald's life, they both take the same approach. They both make use of non-judgemental narrators to comment on the lost generation. This narrator allows Fitzgerlald and Hemingway to write about their own society. Fitzgerlald comments on the ja ...

  • Charles Manson - 1,361 words
    Charles Manson Charles Manson is known as one of the most sinister and evil criminals of all time. He organized the murders that shocked the world and his name still strikes fear into American hearts. Mansons childhood, personality, and uncanny ability to control people led to the creation of a family-like cult and ultimately to the bloody murders of numerous innocent people. Charles M. Manson was born in Cincinnati, Ohio on November 11, 1934. His mother, Kathleen Maddox, was a teenage prostitute. Mansons father walked out on the still pregnant Maddox, never to be seen again. In order to give her bastard son a name, Ms. Maddox married William Manson. He soon abandoned the both of them. Manso ...

  • Critically Consider Whether Evidence Justifies A Distiction Between Stm And Ltm - 832 words
    Critically Consider Whether Evidence Justifies A Distiction Between Stm And Ltm Diane Woodward 10th September 1999 Critically consider whether evidence justifies a distinction between STM and LTM Memory is a working process that enables us to learn and benefit from past experience. There are three stages of process, registration, storage and retrieval. Some Psychologists have undertaken research to show there is a distinction between STM and LTM. Atkinson and Shiffrin introduced the Multi Store Model that supports the fact that the STM and the LTM are different. The LTM is a permanent store while the STM is only temporary. The Multi Store Model proposes that information must pass through the ...

  • Edmund Spenser Vs Virgil And Ariosto - 1,825 words
    Edmund Spenser Vs. Virgil And Ariosto Edmund Spenser vs. Virgil and Ariosto Some scholars believe Spenser did not have sufficient education to compose a work with as much complexity as The Faerie Queene, while others are still "extolling him as one of the most learned men of his time" (587). Scholar Douglas Bush agrees, "scholars now speak less certainly that they once did of his familiarity with ancient literature" (587). In contrast, Meritt Hughes "finds no evidence that Spenser derived any element of his poetry from any Greek Romance" (587). Several questions still remain unanswered: Was Edmund Spenser as "divinely inspired" to write The Faerie Queene as Virgil and Ariosto were in their w ...

  • Email Privacy Rights In Business - 2,215 words
    E-Mail Privacy Rights In Business E-Mail Privacy Rights In Business E-Mail Privacy Rights in Business I. Abstract How far we have come in such a small time. When you think that the personal computer was invented in the early 1980's and by the end of the millennium, several households have two PC's, it is an astonishing growth rate. And, when you consider business, I can look around the office and see that a lot of the cubicles contain more than one PC. It is astonishing to me that such an item has taken control over the information technology arena like personal computers. Consider, however, the items that go along with personal computers: printers; modems; telephone lines for your modem; sc ...

  • Freud Dreamwork - 1,830 words
    Freud Dreamwork 1 INTRODUCTION Although Jung was a pupil of Freud, and one would think they shared the same idea about the interpretation of dreams, that is not exactly true. Freud proposed the notorious idea that dreams are a reflextion of subconsciousness, but Jung expanded on Freud and added another dimension to this relation. In Jung's view, dreams not only lead to personal subconsciousness, but also to collective unconsciousness. This paper attempts to present the two theories of dreams and stress the unique qualities in each of them. I believe the reader will excuse a 'clinical' tone of paper, knowing that originally this text was written as school assignment. In 1995, I wrote this pap ...

  • Kant - 1,618 words
    Kant How does one label Kant as a philosopher? Is he a rationalist or an empiricist? Kant makes a distinction between appearances and things in themselves. He also says that things in themselves exist, and that we have no knowledge of things in themselves. This could be labeled CLOSE TO NONSENSE, but we know Kant better than that. No matter how many laps on the track of metaphysics Kant takes us through, he is still widely held as one of the greatest modern philosophers of our time. Let us explore the schools of rationalism and empiricism and compare his views with that of other rationalists and empiricists (mainly Hume), and see where he ends up on the finish line towards the nature of huma ...

  • Levels Of Processing And Memory 1 - 1,200 words
    Levels of Processing and Memory 1 Abstract: Craik and Lockhart (1972) developed a theory in which they discussed the levels of processing. The theory states, the more a word is processed, due to its meaning, the better the word is retained. In our experiment we presented subjects with a yes or no question pertaining to the meaning of a word or the appearance of a word and then measured their reaction time. Subjects were then asked to recall as many words that they could remember, results showed that there was a significant difference in reaction times and the number of words that were recalled. Introduction: According to Dewey Rundus (1971) the more an item is rehearsed, the higher the proba ...

Thanks. There has been very little work done on the historical Macbeth. There is a modern work, Peter Berresford Ellis, MACBETH, HIGH KING OF SCOTLAND: 1040-1057, (Belfast: Blackstaff, 1990). Unfortunately, this is an unscholarly re-hashing of William Skene's nineteenth century work on Celtic Scotland, and should be taken with a ton of salt. It is, however, a good read, and may have lim ...

  • Macbeth Themes - 1,877 words
    Macbeth Themes Peasants of the early sixteenth century are often pictured carrying a bundle of limbs tied with vines on their backs. This is a perfect metaphor for the events in Macbeth. Macbeth is one of many thanes, or limbs, bundled together. The thanes are united by the king, or the vine. Scotland, or the peasant, carries the bundle by the sweat of his brow. They carry the bundle for fires on cold nights, or wars, and to build homes, or castles, to protect them from the elements, or invaders. If the limbs are tied improperly, one limb may slip to the side and cause the peasant, or nation, to stumble or fall. If the limb slides completely out, the rest of the limbs may follow because the ...

BSkyB will doubtless be keen to secure broadcasting or takeover deals with Premier League clubs before this starts to happen. However, any such deal will be investigated by the Office of Fair Trading (OFT), as are all takeovers. The OFT will examine whether or not the buyout will have competition implications - restricting the access to televise Man Utd. games, for instance. If the OFT finds that there are implications of this nature the deal would be referred to the Monopolies and Mergers Commission (MMC). BSkyB is already being taken to the High ...

    ... communism and subsequent branding of people as traitors or communists in order to gain the spotlight. McCarthy was famous for bringing up the "the communist issue." It was the 1950s and the U.S. was looking at a cold war with communist Russia. It was in this atmosphere that McCarthy was able to flourish. He constantly attacked his opponents and accused them of being "communists" and having "a direct line to the Kremlin." McCarthy was very critical of liberals and Democrats in general labeling them as having a "communist inclination." When performing cross-examinations of witnesses he would attack the prosecuting attorneys with information his clerks dug up if he were ever antagonized. M ...

A door opens and shuts on a hinge. Now if I compare the outer boards of the door with the outward man, I can compare the hinge with the inward man. When the door opens or closes the outer boards move to and fro, but the hinge remains immovable in one place and it is not changed at all as a result. So it is also here . . . (Clark and Skinner, 1958, p. 167; emphasis mine). A hinge pin moves on the outside and remains unmoving at its centre. To act and yet remain in her inmost heart in immovable detachment depict ...

After finding a raised location, like a branch or stem, special appendages at the base of the abdomen (ventral valve maybe) create a gelatinous egg material into the shape characteristic of the particular species as it exits her ovipositor. The egg laying process takes 3 to 5 hours long. By instinct the female twists her abdomen in a spiral motion to create chambers within the ootheca. The egg case then hardens Peters 6 into a paper mache like substance that is resistant to pests who would try and eat it. There are small air pockets between each cell of the ootheca which aids in insulat ...
