- A Stranger Is Watching - 559 words
A Stranger is Watching A Stranger is Watching is a terrific book. I enjoyed reading this book very much. The non-stop action kept me reading for hours.

... either journey no matter where it was located, the natives clearly felt the loss of a man they cherished and revered. Although the journeys that Marlow and Willard make are similar in the fact that they are both looking for Kurtz, the motivations for the journeys are different. Marlows expedition through Africa at the time was to find Kurtz, who had been searching and accumulating ivory, gold, and slaves. The main reason for Willards expedition is to look for a general named Kurtz who has gone crazy, one who is waging a war different from the one intended to keep communism out of parts of Vietnam. Willard and Marlow are both on the same journey, but they are fueled by different motivatio ...

- Globalisation: Friend Or Foe - 1,052 words
Globalisation: Friend Or Foe Globalisation: Friend Or Foe Dramatic Changes have taken place in Sydneys cultural and economic landscapes during the past two decades. These changing landscapes have been linked in both political discourse and the popular press to Sydneys emerging role as a global city. Evidence supporting this theory has come from some academic analyses of globalisation in the 1990s. Global cities are identified by their role as command centers for organising the global economy. Such cities have been characterised by their openness to global flows of commodities, money, ideas and information. They have become destinations for both national and international migration of skilled ...

- Heart Of Darkness By Conrad - 1,479 words
Heart Of Darkness By Conrad Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad In Joseph Conrad's novel, 'Heart of Darkness', the term "darkness" can be related to a few different meanings. Conrad uses this term in various ways to characterize social, political and psychological affairs in order to help the reader get a feel of his attitudes towards things, such as colonialism, Africa, and civilization. The first impression of the word "darkness" in relations to this novel that I understood was its reference to racism. This, I got from the way Conrad writes about the White people and how they treated the natives (Black), in Africa. During the colonization of Africa, forced ideals of a race that thought of t ...

- Thomas Alva Edison - 857 words
Thomas Alva Edison Thomas Alva Edison was the most famous and prolific inventor of all time. During his life, over 1100 patents were issued to him or his associates; he was known as the wizard of Menlo Park, the town in New Jersey where he set up his first invention factory. Yet he was not really a scientist, having no theory or mathematics, and most of his success came from perfecting the ideas of others or already existing inventions by trial and error. He learned telegraphy on the railway, and his services as a telegrapher were in demand during the Civil War, when he traveled all over the country, incidentally studying electricity. In 1868 came his first invention: a machine to record vot ...

... , Edison's mind would wander even into calligraphy or poetry, which he recorded with his notes.

By having a chemistry lab, machine shop, and brilliant group under one roof, Edison was able to produce hundreds of inventions at his laboratory.
