  • Death Returns To Formula One Racing - 1,178 words
    Death Returns To Formula One Racing Jesse Oleet !0/5/98 English 10 Short Story Death Returns to Formula One Racing My first hint that something was wrong came Sunday afternoon when I logged on to the BBS (bulletin board service, a central computer acting as a host for other users to exchange messages) for auto racing. Someone posted a short but gripping note, I think I just witnessed the death of Ayrton Senna, he said. My eyes widened as I exclaimed what, in shock and dismay. A few hours later, the facts became clearer. Senna had crashed on the sixth lap of the San Marino Grand Prix while leading the race. It happened at a section called Tamburello - a gentle bend taken at top speed, about 1 ...

  • Decisions And Expectations - 769 words
    Decisions And Expectations Decisions and Expectations Last summer my good friend Greg came to me and asked if I would like to work with his father for the weekend. I said, Sure, I really need some money, but what do I have to do? He told me I would just have to hand out some flyers at a local car race. Well, the fact that I like cars was alone enough to make me want the job, but the work also sounded very easy. By the weekend, my friend Greg had round up five of his friends and I had round up five of my friends. I thought to myself that this is going to be one fun weekend. The night before we left to go to the car race we had a meeting at Gregs dads house. All of my friends met to discuss wh ...

  • Definition Of Hope - 845 words
    Definition Of Hope The dictionary definition of hope is 'a desire accompanied by expectation of or belief in fulfillment.' The meaning of despair according to the dictionary is 'the utter loss of hope.' So we can see how these two terms are related. In Kundera's "The Unbearable Lightness of Being," the first time we see Tomas go through both of these emotions is when he dealing with the issue of his son. After his divorce he has some hope that he will remain a part of his son's life with scheduled visits. However, when his ex repeatedly cancels these visits he loses all this hope and is in a state of despair and then decides that he will no longer see or speak to his son again. For the longe ...

  • Diary By Bridget Jones - 660 words
    Diary By Bridget Jones On a good day, Bridget Jones weighs no more than 120 pounds, smokes no more than five cigarettes, imbibes no more than three alcohol units, comes up with one or two clever ideas at the office meeting, and checks her voice mail maybe two or three times to see if her boyfriend has phoned. On a bad day - of which there are many - the statistics are less satisfying. Still, the obsessive Jones dutifully records them all in her hilarious but poignant diary: "Saturday 12 August: 129 pounds, alcohol units 3 (v.g.), cigarettes 32 (v.v. bad, particularly since first day of giving up) . . . voice mail calls 22, minutes spent having cross imaginary conversations with Daniel 120, m ...

  • Dinosaurs Extinction - 1,537 words
    Dinosaurs Extinction The first question that must be posed when trying to crack the mystery of the mass extinction is to ask, throughout history were there any other occurences of this magnitude? The answer is a resounding yes. Altogether over time there has been about eight mass extinctions to large land dwelling vertebrates. The most recent was about ten thousand years ago, killing most of the giant mammals like mammoths, mastodons, super-large camels, saber-toothed tigers, and others (Bakker 428). The second question, is whether or not these mass extinctions follow a pattern? Once again the answer is yes. Every time a mass extinction occurs on the land ecosystem, the oceanic system is hur ...

  • Earthday - 1,330 words
    Earthday Earth Day Earth Day is April 22. Earth Day is most often observed by the media, hundreds of local groups and noted on calendars on April 22. Many people also observe Earth Week and Earth Month. Since most events and festivals need to take place on a weekend, Earth Day is observed on the weekends before and after April 22. Others also observe it on March 21, the Vernal Equinox or on World Environment Day, June 6. Remember, that really, every day is an Earth Day - we just need to live our lives that way. History of Earth Day For years prior to Earth Day it had been troubling to me that the critical matter of the state of our environment was simply a non-issue in the politics of our co ...

    Edmund Kemper On May 7, 1972 Edmund Kemper began his series of murders. His first two victims were both students at Fresno State College.

He then attempted to try to strangle her with a piece of cloth. But, his efforts were not successful at first, because even though she was handcuffed, she was able to bite a hole in the b ...

    Eminent Death The Eminent Death During this past summer I experienced real pain and sadness as a result of a loved ones illness and ultimate death which was something I had never had to deal with before. My grandfather, Pappy, had been sick with cancer on and off for ten to fifteen years. He was a very animated, witty man - always sitting in his chair, watching TV, and smoking his cigars, unless he was out playing golf or helping Granny do something around the house. But he would be sure to take the time to show my cousins and my sister and I some new games or toys he had gotten for his computer, or just tell us hysterical stories and jokes whenever we were at their house. I remember being i ...

  • Florida State, First Impression - 1,374 words
    Florida State, First Impression Florida State, First Impression When I decided to come to Florida State, surprisingly enough it wasn't for the parties. I was actually excited about coming here and studying (don't ask me why). Every other school I looked at I judged them according to how much of a party school they were and what the girls looked like. Then I end up at the #1 party school with a 5:1 ratio of girls to guys. In fact when I came here I wasn't even planning on rushing a Fraternity. When I got here though it was a whole different story. I can remember the week before school started, walking down the hall of my dorm and seeing newspaper clippings on all the doors. After a few days I ...

  • Free Will - 803 words
    Free Will Do I have Free Will? After considering the evidence for the three views I have concluded that soft determinism is best supported. I will be arguing for soft determinism with evidence presented in the class readings. I will start out with the evidence of unconscious motivation. It is the unconscious that forces us to act out things we think are justifiable but can actually be hurtful. With the three factors of our unconscious state, the ID, super-ego and the unconscious ego, we tend to be in a tug-of-war with our mind over who has control. With the mind being in the unconscious state we tend to make compromises in our actions. With the unconscious working, we have the freedom of fre ...

Tom Rosenstiel, director of the Project for Excellence in Journalism said that, "In 12 hours of coverage, there were only about 10 minutes' worth of actual facts." Stephen Lacy, acting director of Michigan State University's School of Journalism in East Lansing said through the coverage of the Kennedy tragedy, he saw, "a bigger disconnect between the press and the public. It was a bit of overkill, especially on television." He went on to say that "The media have not quite realized that overplaying does not help their credibility, but continues to show examples of t ...

    Funny No More Funny No More It's 6:OOam on a Saturday morning; do you know where your children are? Well, if they are anything like we used to be, they are probably sitting down to watch the weekend cartoons. Yeah, you remember, the one time during the whole week when you got up before the sun came out and ate a big bowl of sugar coated garbage just so you could watch Wyle E. Coyote practically kill himself trying to catch the ever illusive Road Runner. We've all seen him try and inevitably fail at this task, but we get a good laugh at his expense. And isn't that the point; to laugh at something so ridiculous that it almost hurts? Well, according to Kirsten Dockendorff's essay, The Road to A ...

"I just spent twenty bucks last weekend!" Alan sped away from his home toward the gas station before he had to be at work that morning only to find out that the gas prices had been raised again.
