Be Nice - 546 words
My two-year-old nieces favorite phrase is Be nice. Anytime she is crossed, does not get what she wants, scolded or reprimanded, Be nice is her response. It is just a quiet, innocently spoken Be nice; almost like she is trying to remind you how to act. Two little words can go a long way. Be nice. Why is that so hard for some people to do? It makes every ones day go a lot more smoothly when people show common courtesy. It does not have to be something prolific, things like holding the door open for the person behind you, pushing the elevator buttons for the person in the wheelchair, picking up a quarter that an elderly lady dropped, all the little things eventually add up.

Spanishamerican War - 1,328 words
Most may think that the Spanish-American War was a war between the Americans and the Spanish. Most are right, but only to a point, because the Spanish-American War also included wars between the Americans and the Filipinos, as well as between the Americans and Puerto-Ricans. Reasons for these wars occurring are obvious to the history connoisseur, but to the normal individual, they may not be so distinct. America has been a country of great power for years, and that power has come not only from years of hard work and fighting, but also from years of audacity. About one hundred fifty years ago, the United States began sending armed forces to foreign countries in an effort to attain each indivi ...

Grocery Wars - 756 words
Every person must buy groceries. In Brevard County, a consumer has three grocery stores where they can purchase food, Winn Dixie, Publix, and Albertson's. Although they are all grocery stores and they all sell food, they differ greatly in customer service. Consumers will shop where they best feel welcomed and receive superior customer service. Winn Dixie, a south eastern supermarket, has over 12 stores in Brevard County. Their company logo, "the beef people", definitely does not show what they think customer service means. Like other grocery stores, they have good stores and they have bad stores. Some good stores have smiling, helpful employees while a majority of the stores just employ "war ...

He did not fit Websters definition of outgoing rather a tamed and timid beast. He was not well known down at Dixie State Junior College; he merely walked around in his tank top and shorts like everyone else and baked in the hot sun. Fresh out of high school and in a new area with new people, he didnt really know anyone and in return no one knew about how good he was on the field. He had taken a big risk taking the full ride scholarship, going to a place where he didnt know a soul. He just thought of the coaches words Yo ...

Rap And Censorship - 1,051 words
The beginnings of rap are believed to based on African rhythms which were used as a form of communication by the native peoples. The lyrical component of rap music is thought to have been greatly influenced by Cab Calloway with his repetitive chants and scats, along with his call-and-response technique with the audience. Rap evolved and gained in popularity in the 1960's when a few revolutionary "DJ's," including Kool DJ Herc, DJ Lovebug Starski, and DJ Hollywood, began to work block parties in the Bronx. They would bring in large speakers, hook them up to a turntable and play two of the same record at the same time, repeating the same section of the vinyl over and over by scratching it. Oth ...

Langston Hughes - Writer, Editor, Lecturer - 1,933 words
James Mercer Langston Hughes was born in Joplin, Missouri, on February 1, 1902, to James Nathaniel Hughes, a lawyer and businessman, and Carrie Mercer (Langston) Hughes, a teacher. The couple separated shortly thereafter. James Hughes was, by his son's account, a cold man who hated blacks (and hated himself for being one), feeling that most of them deserved their ill fortune because of what he considered their ignorance and laziness. Langston's youthful visits to him there, although sometimes for extended periods, were strained and painful. He attended Columbia University in 1921-22, and when he died he, left everything to three elderly women who had cared for him in his last illness, and La ...

People are advised to not read books that have correct historical language or biography's with intense scenes of passion or rape. The world begs for violence through its media but scorns reading as if the message were there to ridicule and destroy us. Is Mr. ...

Battle At Bull Run By William Davis - 976 words
Whether it is called Bull Run or Manassas, this battle was a great victory for the members of the Confederate States of America and an incredible learning experience for the United States of America. William C. Davis takes his readers on a journey through this battle in an enlightening yet challenging manner. For the newcomer to military writing this book would prove to be very challenging. To follow Davis, the reader would probably need to read through this at least three times because he constantly, seemingly in mid-thought, switches from commander to commander, region to region, and Confederate to Union. While his style is somewhat difficult to follow, he often adds drops of humor to prov ...
