    1928 Election AP American History October 21, 1997 The year of 1828 was a tumultuous year in American politics. It so happened that it was a presidential election year.

  • Charlie Chaplin: Film As Information - 1,106 words
    Charlie Chaplin: Film As Information by Nicole T. Simonian (Business Economics with Accounting major) When a critic examines the silent films of Charles Chaplin a question that arises is whether the comedy he portrayed is a mockery of political and current issues, or a means to bring laughter to viewers. Silent films generated different emotions and thoughts since a spectator was simply watching actions rather than hearing an explanation through words. Information was cleverly construed this way and however the critic analyzed the information presented was an individual responsibility. In fact, Charles Chaplin once said, ..it is not the reality that matters in a film but what the imagination ...

  • Ecology And Forestation - 1,190 words

  • In Support Of Human Cloning - 1,323 words
    In Support Of Human Cloning Human cloning is inevitable. As part of the progress of science, human cloning will take place regardless of who opposes it. In this paper I will explain what human cloning is, some of the ethical and moral objections to it, some medical benefits it could serve, what many different religions think of cloning humans, and ultimately why I feel that this would be beneficial to our society. In order to understand the objections and the potential of human cloning, one must know exactly it is and how it is done.

  • Putnams Theory On Bowling Alone - 1,055 words
    Putnam's Theory On Bowling Alone Robert Putnam's central thesis in Bowling Alone is that there has been a decline in civic engagement and social capital over the past few decades.

Putnam uses this metaphor for all forms of civic disengagement, meaning that people virtually do as little as possible collectively and would rather focus purely on the individual, rather than the group. Putnam's book addresses several topics of civic disengagement, including a decline in civic participation and social isolation. Putnam ...
