Racism In Huck Finn - 1,187 words
... a was to underscore the chilling truth about the old south, that it was a society where perfectly "nice" people didn't consider the death of a black person worth their notice. Because of his upbringing, the boy starts out that slavery is part of the natural order; but as the story unfolds he wrestles with his conscience, and when the crucial moment comes he decides he will be damned to the flames of hell rather than betray his black friend. And Jim, as Twain presents him, is hardly a caricature. Rather, he is the moral center of the book, a man of courage and nobility, who risks his freedom risks his life -- for the sake of his friend Huck. (Swalden 2) Booker T. Washington noted how Twa ...

Report On Reding In The Dark - 607 words
The novel, Reading in the Dark, is written by Seamus Deanne. This book is written from the viewpoint of a little boy who explains the episodes of his life as he grows up. Apparently, Deanne said in an interview with the Irish Times, that the accounts in the story are taken from his own family along with the other families in his neighborhood in Derry, Northern Ireland. As I read the book, I didn't think it was a true story, but presumed it was fictional. I think I thought this because it was all about hauntings and ghost stories and it didn't strike me as being a true account someone's life. After I read it, I found out that all of the accounts in the story are true, and it changed the way t ...

Reformation Of Kikuji Mitani In Thousand Cranes - 1,657 words
"Thousand Cranes" by Yasunari Kawabata ILLUSTRATE THE ROLE WHICH MRS OTA AND HER DAUGHTER FUMIKO PLAY IN BRINGING ABOUT THE REFORMATION OF KIKUJI'S CHARACTER TO COME TO TERMS WITH HIS PAST. IN WHAT WAYS (IF ANY) DOES THIS HELP HIM BECOME A BETTER PERSON? Kawabata's "Thousand Cranes" is a novel that puts little emphasis on story lines, placing more value on emotions, reflections, symbolism and such. The rather crude (at first sight) plot of this complicated piece of Japanese literature is concentrated on a tangled web of relationships of the past, riddled with jealousy, insecurity and deep mistrust. Kikuji Mitani, the main character, has grown up watching many of these triangular and adultero ...

... ns throughout the course of the story. The last words of the book reinforce this continued loathing- " 'And only Kurimoto is left.' As if spitting out all the accumulated venom on the woman he took for his enemy, Kikuji hurried into the shade of the park." I think that it can safely be concluded that this is one aspect of his past that Kikuji will never change his position on. As Chikako cleans the cottage, "The sound of her broom became the sound of a broom sweeping the contents of his skull, and her cloth polishing the veranda a cloth rubbing at his skull." This extraordinary metaphor gives us great insight into Kikuji's attitude towards his past and his memories. There are two contrad ...

... at current levels hay must be purchased from an outside party (at $80.00/ton) to support any volume of cattle above 30 during the winter months. Recently, RCC has been faced with the opportunity to expand self-produced hay in two different manners. First, RCC can buy a parcel of land that will produce an additional 100 tons of hay per year. This would bring total winter hay production to 160 tons per year. Second, RCC can install an irrigation system on current hay producing land to maximize its hay producing potential. With an irrigation system you can produce an extra 40 tons of hay per year. This would bring total winter hay production to 100 tons per year The choice of what combinat ...

Robert Maxwell: The Man and the Mystery by Anita Cheek Moon for The Paper Store, Inc. -- March VISIT www.paperwriters.com/aftersale.htm -- Robert Maxwell, the infamous tycoon who is remembered as much for his personality and ethics in his business dealings as he is for his accomplishments, died in 1991. Debates over his life and diversions, however, will loom well into the future. Perhaps fittingly, Maxwell is reported to have died while urinating off the side of his twenty-one million dollar yacht the Lady Ghislaine (Information Intelligence, 1991; Barker, 1998). Fittingly? Yes fittingly. Maxwell was reported to have enjoyed urinating off the tops of rooftops on unsuspecting crowds below (W ...

Recruitment - 1,768 words
On dealing with the premiss that the practice of recruitment and selection is a long way from the recommendations of personnel textbooks, distinction must be taken into account between explicit recommendations and guidelines, on one hand, and, on the other, implicit suggestions stemming from the authors own stance. The implications of distancing from, or identification with, such explicit recommendations and implicit suggestions will be viewed in this paper as well as forms of overt and covert resistance, or adhesion, assumed in actual practice. Also central to the argument is what the whole issue means in terms of both existing problems and potential future problems for the employer and the ...

... e a woman, but the same argument gained credibility in employer-led Opportunity 2000 launched by Prime Minister John Major in the early 1990s (Liff, 1995). Line managers prefer informal sources of recruitment such as word-of-mouth recommendations or purchasing peoples names off the Professional and Executive Register and contacting them directly. This enables autonomy and unaccountability over the choice of successful applicant, and the stereotyped ideal recruit is white, male, aged 30 to 40, and married, i.e. with wife, children and mortgage. This state of affairs is difficult to change, as line managers are patriarchally elevated as the providers, the organizations breadwinners, thus m ...

Reality Misunderstood - 1,332 words
Day by day cyberspace is becoming a more intricate part of our society. As it does, we rely on it more to manage finances, research, and to communicate. Communication in cyberspace has developed a new community for people around the world. The ability to freely communicate with people around the world through a computer has raised many questions about the reality of cyberspace. Since it is a tool of communication that millions of people use every day to converse with friends, family, and business associates it must be considered a dwelling of reality. Although it seems like an abstract point, cyberspace is a destination millions of people visit every day to transfer real ideas and real thoug ...

Ring Lardners Haircut Analysis - 2,186 words
No one would have believed in the last years of the nineteenth century that this world was being watched keenly and closely by intelligence greater than man's and yet as mortal as his own; that as men busied themselves about their various concerns they were scrutinized and studied, perhaps almost as narrowly as a man with a microscope might scrutinize the transient creatures that swarm and multiply in a drop of water. --H.G. WELLS, The War of the Worlds Analysis is a delicate task, for if we agree that the whole is likely to be greater than the sum of its parts and that we cannot always know the dancer from the dance, we will want to avoid any mechanical "taking apart" of a work for fear of ...

Nevertheless, appears to be radically inconsistent-when a character is sometimes strictly and merely allegorical.

River - 789 words
It was early on a Sunday morning. My Mother was in the kitchen cooking breakfast for my sister and me. We were getting ready for our day on the Delaware River. My Mom and Sister were going skidder tubing with some of their friends. I was going canoe fishing on the River with a close friend of the family. Little did I know at the time, what would lie ahead in the way of danger. I was really excited about the day ahead as I had never been on the Delaware before. The swiftness and height of the river made it seem even more adventurous. I felt like a real outdoorsman! As we packed up the last of our gear in the little white pick up truck, my heart pounded with excitement at the thought of pullin ...

Roommates - 681 words
If you are going to be a college freshman, there is a good chance you wont be able to choose who lives with you. In some cases, the roommates are able to choose each other. It is impossible to really know someone without living with them awhile. There are three types of personalities that a roommate might have: the Party Animal, the Average person, and the Book Worm. These personality types can be sub-categorized into five criterions: when the person wakes-up, study habits, personal appearance, when person sleeps, and ability to live with a different type of roommate. A better understanding of these types may help new roommates choose the person that best suits them. The Party Animals wakes- ...

Reagan Economics - 1,646 words
The election of the Regan-Bush Republican ticket of 1984 brought many unprecedented and controversial policies to the US economy. Many of these policies,including Reganomics still affect our economy as a whole and are still major points of debates today. Reganomics was not solely based on economics, but rather the included a sense of having moral foundations. Government intervention and regulation of the economy were seen as economically harmful and furthermore morally wrong. It was believed that economic affairs should be left to the wisdom of God and his guidance would produce a successful market and economy. The moral obligation together with extreme Kenseyan theories were the guide to th ...

Religions Influence On The American School System - 631 words
The formation of our modern American School System has been heavily influenced by the religious views of our predecessors, the colonial settlers of New England. The general interest of settlers in their childrens ability to read, their establishment of elementary and secondary grammar schools, and the founding of colleges and universities were all religiously motivated advances in early American education. While the twentieth century has brought about a separation between church and state (in this case, state referring to education), the roots of education in religion are still readily apparent. The moral theology of Puritanism, the dominant religion in seventeenth century New England, seems ...
