Y2k: Should We Be Worried? - 904 words
Some people wonder what Y2K is, and whether it is true or false. Should we be worried about Y2K? Some people are sure it is false, yet the news stresses that it is true. This has many people in fear for their life. Some have been preparing for over a year now because they think Y2K is going to hit and the power will go out and absolutely nothing will work. Should we believe this? Many people ask, "What is Y2K?". It made me wonder one day, "What does Y2K really mean?". I went to the search engine Altavista and typed in "What does Y2K stand for?".

Introduction Youth unemployment is a term used for people between the ages of 15-19, that do not attend school or tertiary level and don't have any form of paid job. There are reasons causing this growing problem. These being; employers not wanting inexperienced woorkers, the low rate of pay and the transition period from education to the work force after the completion of year 12. Fortunately, there are a vast majority of "youth friendly industries". This implies that, when certain companies are labelled a "youth friendly industry" not only do they employ trained adults but also the inexperienced youth of society.

Yangshao And Longshan Cultures - 647 words
When people today think of ancient Chinese cultures, they immediately think of the more commonly known periods such as the Warring States period and the Ming Dynasty. China's history stretches many more millennia into the past however, and some of the most important cultures are those that existed in prehistory, the Neolithic era. These cultures are extremely mysterious. We have no written documents by them and little of their villages survive. But scholars are learning more and more about these cultures from their art, namely pottery, that has fortunately survived seemingly countless years buried in the earth. The Yangshao and Longshan are two of these cultures that have left traces of thei ...

Yoga/meditation - 1,158 words
Originally, my plan was to spend three days in Oklahoma practicing yoga two to three times a day and spend at least a couple of hours a day in meditation. The first day went alright for a little while. I arose at ten oclock or so and began with an hour and forty-five minute session with kriyas and meditation. That yeilded a wonderful, relaxed feeling. Afterwards, I was inspired to take a rare cold shower. Throughout the rest of the day I attempted short meditations. My problems with this were that my diet did not support me nutriciously and I did not leave my mothers apartment. I was left with a feeling of being trapped in an unhealthy and stiffling environment. Later in the evening, because ...

Your Lord Says, "call On Me And I Will Answer You. Those Who Are Too Proud To Worship Me Will Enter Hell Abject." (qur'an, 40:60) - 975 words
According to the Qur'an, prayer, meaning "calling, giving expression, requesting, seeking help," is a person's turning sincerely to Allah, and seeking help from Him, the Almighty, the Compassionate and Merciful, in the knowledge that he is a dependent being. Illness is one of those instances when a person feels this dependence most and draws closer to Allah. Furthermore, sickness is a test, devised in His Wisdom, that takes place by His Will, and is a warning to remind people of the transience and imperfection of this life, and is also a source of recompense in the Hereafter for the patient and submissive. Those without faith, on the other hand, imagine that the way to recovery is through do ...

Youth Drug Abuse - 644 words
Recently, the case of drug abuses reported among youngsters has increased dramatically owing to the growing popularity of rave parties. More surprising, taking ecstasy, a rave drug, has become a habit for party-goers as young as 12. The trend is so serious that it sparks the concerns of our society. Actions should be taken immediately to highlight the dangers of taking drugs. However, are the governments actions adequate? Personally, I don t think so. Simply searching and putting warnings on the entry tickets for rave parties are not enough. Further actions and other measures must be taken to prevent the use of drugs among the youth. Instead of putting warnings on the entry tickets, the gove ...

Young Goodman Brown - 702 words
Young Goodman Brown "Young Goodman Brown" by Nathaniel Hawthorne contains much symbolism. The symbols take many forms from the setting to the characters. The symbols can be viewed as just part of the story line, but upon further thought they represent many different things. Faith, Brown's wife, is a symbol herself. When he says, "My love and my Faith," he is using his wife as a symbol and is really referring to his love and faith in God. He goes on to say "this one night I must tarry away from thee." He means that he must part from his faith in God to carry on with his journey. He also says to the devil, " Faith kept me back awhile" and is making reference to a higher being that is trying to ...

Youth Unemployment And Crime - 1,957 words
Opinions such as those found in the Smith Family Youth Unemployment Report (2003) which hypothesize that juvenile crime is directly connected to the high rates of youth unemployment in Australia cannot be neither accepted nor critiqued until there is a clear understanding of what the terms "Youth Unemployment" and "Juvenile Crime" mean in the context of this essay. In this essay youth unemployment is generally taken to include the entire 15-24 age cohort - not just 15-19 year old teenagers - who are no longer at school or university and who are without a job. I have chosen to include 20-24 year olds under the banner of "Youth", as it gives a fairer picture of the performance of all young peo ...

Young Goodman Brown Vs. Rose For Emily - 808 words
In this paper I would like to evaluate and analyze two literary works, namely, Young Goodman Brown by Nathaniel Hawthorne and Rose For Emily by William Faulkner. The reason for my choosing these two works is the following: I believe that on close reading of the aforementioned novels one can trace the similarity in the personality of the main character is portrayed as being the incarnation of twisted perception of the world and what good and evil is. Young Goodman Brown is a story that spotlights on a man that has to choose between right and wrong, and good and evil. Towards the end, Goodmans journey from the village through the forest and back again is turned into a self-assessment about his ...

1. Should stock options be counted as an expense? Stock options should be counted as an expense for the fact that they represent something of value, even though this value is not always precisely estimated. a. Make the argument for counting them as expenses. The company gives the owners of call options the right yet not the obligation to buy the specified stock at a certain time at a certain price.
