CENSORSHIP ON THE INTERNET A 43-year-old man from Boston was having a steamy cyber affair with who he thought to be a 23-year-old woman. He later found out the "she," to his dismay, was an 80-year-old man living in a Miami nursing home. Things like this happen everyday, people mask their sex and age to avoid or attract attention on the Internet. This is only one of the reasons why the government wants to censor the Internet. They claim they want to protect the children by limiting the amount of reality they are allowed to view. But in order to do this they would need to censor the entire Internet, from everyone. This is why censorship on the Internet would be a violation of the first amendme ...

ENV 221Y Assignment ANICE TRY,@ SAYS TAYLOR ABAD AIR ALERT: IT=S KILLING US!@ Did that catch your attention? The Blue Ribbon Committee=s strategy poses to be quite effective and powerful when trying to make us understand the devastating final consequences to the pollution problem that we encounter every day of our lives. To many of us, knowing that something can kill us, human beings, is such a devastating concept that it seems incomprehensible. Knowing that even one of us can be slaughtered by the air we breathe brings upon us a different kind of insight. One that makes us stop, even for a split second, to think of how we are contributing to the future mass destruction of the human species. ...

- Internet Censorship - 872 words
Internet Censorship Since the introduction of the World Wide Web in 1989 by Tim Burners-Lee, many different debates have arisen over various aspects of the Internet. That is expected since there are so many different types of information available on the Web ranging from poetry to games to news to even pornography. Some argue that not all kinds of data should be accessible to all; that is where censorship comes in. Internet censorship includes restriction of access or publication of any material not thought to be appropriate by the censoring party. This can include pornography, news that a government does not want published, offensive language, ideas or anything. The Federal Communications D ...

- Legalization Of Drugs - 1,378 words
Legalization of Drugs Such an issue stirs up moral and religious beliefs; beliefs that are contrary to what America should "believe". However, such a debate has been apparent in the American marketplace of ideas before with the prohibition of alcohol in the 1920's. With the illegality of alcohol the mafia could produce liquor and therefore had considerable control over those who wanted their substance and service. The role that the mafia played in the 1920's has transformed into the corner drug dealers and drug cartel of the 1990's. The justification that legalized alcohol under Amendment 21 in 1933 should also legalize drugs in 1996. With the legalization of drugs a decrease in deaths relat ...

- Nike - 879 words
Nike In 1958 the beginning of NIKE Inc. came about when Coach Bill Bowermen and business student Phil Knight, both from the University of Oregon, felt the need for a better athletic shoe. Through Bowermens athletic experience and Knights business background they designed and tried to sell their model of the perfect running shoe. None of the major companies trusted the engineering or demand for the new sneaker and therefore would not manufacture the item. In 1964 Bowerman and Knight used their own money to start Blue Ribbon Sports company. They convinced Onitsoda Tiger to manufacture their sneakers, which they sold from their cars at track meets. Four years later Blue Ribbon Sports was change ...

Poetry Unit 2000 Poetry Unit 2000 LIMERICK There once was a kid named Darren, Who's room was surprisingly barren, He had no toys, Like all normal boys, But he did believe in sharing. There once was an old man named Esser, Whose knowledge grew lesser and lesser, It at last grew so small He knew nothing at all, And now he's a college professor. HAIKU Morning light appears The new day has awoken Nature stirs and sighs Spirits haunt my dreams Skeletons muffle my screams Night as black as death EPIGRAM The days become months and those become years, Only memories remain of both joy and tears. The screams the cries and the pain, All of this goes on in ones brain. PARODY Galway Bay Maybe some day I' ...

- Rising Major League Baseball Salaries, And The - 1,941 words
... er year for the first time ever. But, those deals paled in comparison to the deal that was signed the very next day by shortstop Alex Rodriguez. The Texas Rangers signed the twenty-five year old to a ten-year, $252 million dollar contract that totally shattered the previously held conception of any kind of restraint on players' salaries. Consider that in 1990, just ten years ago, the highest paid player was Will Clark the 1St Baseman for the San Francisco Giants, and he was paid the comparatively small amount of $3.75 million dollars per year. Rodriguez now makes almost seven times what Will Clark made in 1990. Rodriguez's deal, which pays him an average of $25.2 million dollars per year ...
