  • Animal Farm - 1,306 words
    Animal Farm Many great works have been inspired by events in history. George Orwells Animal Farm provides an unusual outlook on the Russian Revolution and its leaders by using animals to represent their human counterparts. Orwell attacks communist society and points out weaknesses in its government officials. He calls for a close examination of the treatment of Russian citizens and questions whether they have any rights at all. Orwell was careful in his designation of animals in Animal Farm, especially in regards to the power reserved for the pigs. Animal Farm uses the perfect combination of animal symbolism to relate the occurrences on Manor Farm to actual historical events of the Russian R ...

  • Dna - 1,551 words
    Dna DNA evidence is extremely helpful in criminal trials not only because it can determine the guilt of a suspect, but also because it can keep innocent people from going to jail. The suspect must leave a sample of their DNA at the crime scene in order for testing to occur, but DNA can be found in the form of many things such as semen, blood, hair, saliva, or skin scrapings. According to Newsweek, "thousands of people have been convicted by DNA's nearly miraculous ability to search out suspects across space and time ... hundreds of innocent people have also been freed, often after years behind bars, sometimes just short of the death chamber" (Adler ). Though some may think it is a waste of t ...

  • Hypertext Environment - 513 words
    Hypertext Environment Computers finds a unique selling point to attract customers: their advertisement shows a young man ecstatic after getting the latest computer in the market.

  • Microsoft And Monopoly - 1,573 words
    Microsoft And Monopoly America's century-old antitrust law is increasingly irrelevant to our modern global information technology market. This law is obsolete, in accordance to the current Microsoft situation, because in the past there wasn't technology as there is now. Recently the government has been accusing Microsoft as being a monopoly. "Techno-Optimists" claim that "efforts by government to promote competition by restraining high-tech firms that acquire market power will only stifle competition." Some analysts disagree. They concede that dynamic technology makes it tough to sustain market power. Still, consumers will want compatible equipment, which will lead them to buy whatever produ ...

  • Naval Aviation - 1,607 words
    Naval Aviation Throughout the history of Naval Aviation, one can see a growing force. As new technology and innovations arose and advanced, Naval Aviation improved as well. In times of war and peace, through training and dedication, naval aviators improved their abilities and tactics to produce the fighting force it is today. If by chance, the "revolt of the admirals" had failed, the United States Military would not be what it is today and the Navy could not have the liberty of enjoying the Mahanian concept of commanding the sea. As new technology and innovations arose in the late 1800s and early 1900s, the military potentials for Naval Aviation were not so evident. Interest grew in 1898 dur ...

  • Pcs Are Better Than Macs For Home Users - 1,004 words
    ... tested PC. Generally, PCs are faster than Macs at most commonly used tasks. IBM-compatibles also run the Internet programs and 3D games faster. Despite the obvious performance advantages, people buy iMacs and iBook. One of the reasons for that is the way Apple advertises their computers Apple concentrates on the Macs exterior. The main reason for iBooks and iMacs popularity is their appearance. The colorful translucent cases separate these computers from PCs. Whether Apples plan is to use the eye-catching shapes and colors of these Macs to cover the flaws in performance, or just to catch consumers attention, it seems to work well. PC manufactures finally realized that people buy these c ...

    ... saster. The reversal of many of the gains achieved by workers combined with the reduction of taxes on the rich, created a problem in the economy that would go unnoticed. In addition, the availability of credit led to reckless spending which would further endanger the economy. This unequal distribution of wealth combined with a free spending attitude weakened the economy and led to the Great Depression. The discussion continues with bracket IV, which covers the time period 1940-1975 and pairs the number one seed in the bracket "The Vietnam War" against fourth seed "World War II". The second seed in the bracket "The Cuban Missile Crisis" is paired against the third seed "The Civil Rights A ...

  • We Do Not Xactly Care About The Government - 1,126 words
    We Do Not Xactly Care About the Government What is the point of the government? This is a question I often ask myself. I am a member of Generation X, or so I've been labeled since I was born in 1981. I have been labeled as lazy, irresponsible, and apathetic. One of those words applies to me right now, and that is my apathy toward the government. At this time in my life it does not matter what happens in the government, it will continue to run without my input. Perhaps our indifference toward the government is one of the many problems with my generation. There are many reasons why young people do not vote, or get involved in political actions. They range from apathy to just plain not having e ...

    Where Is Your Company Among The Life CycleS? Where is Your Company Among the Life Cycles? (How Long will the PBX Life Cycle Be?) Recently we did a detailed life cycle evaluation not only on some companies but the system or product used. This example, the PBX system or private branch exchange, would be considered buried in overhead by some, but we broke down into detailed areas evaluating specifics that effect ever-changing technology factors. As PBX technology becomes more advanced, the life expectancy of PBX systems is shrinking. Enterprises must plan for shorter life cycles for newer, server-based PBX systems. I will show different criteria for several types of enterprises using the system ...
