Al Capone is perhaps the best known gangster of all time and by far the most powerful mob boss of his era. His mob dominated the Chicago area from 1925 to 1931, when he was imprisoned for income tax evasion. This was the only crime the courts could prove against him. He went to jail at Alcatraz for eight years until he became very ill with syphilis and died from the disease in 1947 (URL:http://www.broonale.co.uk/ austria/capone.html 1-3).

- Domestic Violence And Abuse In Australia - 1,031 words
... ith many others. However, in complete contrast to such beliefs that domestic violence occurs mainly in lower socioeconomic groups, data collected by the Family Violence Professional Education Taskforce (1991) indicates that family violence is prevalent throughout all class boundaries. Spouse abuse occurs throughout all aspects of society. However, as shown in Figure 1, it rates around two times higher among families where the male partner is unskilled (and thus more likely to be unemployed) relative to families where the male partner is skilled or trained in a particular field (and therefore more likely employed). These statistics are unlikely to have improved with an increase in unemplo ...

... ons) at work throughout the poem. One question may occur in regard to the second of these: is it valour and courage that Satan and his followers showed in fighting the War in Heaven with God? Of course, we may have a bit of trouble thinking of Satan as showing courage and valour. But it may be the words themselves and modern connotations connected with them that cause the difficulty. When examined more closely, there seems to be little difficulty. According to the Oxford English Dictionary, valour means "the quality of mind which enables a person to face danger with boldness or firmness; courage or bravery, especially as shown in warfare or conflict"; courage is defined as "that quality ...

Justifiable Homicide At The Hands Of The State Justifiable Homicide at the Hands of the State Several problems exist in society today, and we are doing everything we could to correct these complications and to possibly diminish them. Some are as minor as traffic violations, and some are as serious as deaths. Many innocent lives are being taken due to the careless and unforgivable acts of a few people. Something has to be done to stop this from happening. In other words, we, as society, need to play our part in preventing these nightmares and tragedies from taking place. This is where capital punishment, which Websters School and Office Dictionary defines as punishment by death for a crime; t ...

- My Last Duchess By Browning - 1,860 words
My Last Duchess By Browning One of the greatest Victorian poets and masters of the dramatic monologue, Robert Browning was born in London on the seventh of May in 1812. His father was a clerk at the Bank of England and mostly educated Browning at home. He attended London University in 1828, but withdrew after his second term.

It was not until 1869 when The Ring and the Book was published that he received recognition and began to build his reputation. Prior to his success, he married Elizabeth Browning against her fathers wishes and stayed deeply ...

- Says Who Music Censorship In The New Millenium - 1,299 words
... the emergence of rap in the mid eighties that showed the rest of America the brutal reality of what was going on. Instead of politicians and other citizens of the country taking note and inspecting the situation, it seemed that the main focus was to hush the raging, abrupt voices and pretend like nothing was wrong. The overall ideal was to stop the music before it tainted the innocent, virgin minds of the middle class children being raised in Middle America. Rap artists havent been the only ones feeling the brunt of skeptics. Rock bands such as Marilyn Manson and even radio friendly Third Eye Blind have been banned from the mainstream. Pop sensations such as the Backstreet Boys, Britney ...

- The Fall Of The Roman Empire - 1,286 words
The Fall Of The Roman Empire For men who had easily endured hardship, danger and difficult uncertainty, leisure and riches, though in some ways desirable, proved burdensome and a source of grief. The causes for the breakdown of the early Roman Republic cannot be attributed to a single event, trend or individual, rather it was due to a combination of all three in varying degrees. The principal and fundamental cause was the breakdown of the political checks and balances, particularly the Cursus Honorum from 133 BC onwards. This subversion occurred both accidentally and through the subversive behavior of individuals, unconsciously and consciously undermining the fabric of the republic in their ...
