This planet has - or rather had - a problem, which was this: most of the people on it were unhappy for pretty much of the time.

Virtual Community - 477 words
In 1988, when everybody thought the only people who would use computers to communicate were adolescent boys with complexion problems, I witnessed some heart-touching acts of spontaneous support and charitypeople raising tens of thousands of dollars to help parents struggling with a sick child, shifts organized to sit and read to a dying comrade, and other instances where flesh-and-blood humans reached through the computer screens and changed each other's lives. I wrote on "Virtual Communities" for Whole Earth Review , and five years later published The Virtual Community . Since then, I've been involved in public discussions in person, in print, and online about whether a community can truly ...

Rastafarianism, better known as Rastafari or simply Rasta, is a religion that was developed in Jamaica during the early 20th century.

Creative Ways Of Learning - 880 words
The first thing I want to point out in this essay is that I've been in school for about eleven years and I'm finally being taught how to learn. These methods have been around for a while and still the school system is so set in it's ways that it is barely beginning to change. But anyway we've been taught about left and right brain dominance. We have learnt that there are three main ways that people learn . There are Kinaesthetic, Auditory and Visual learners. It is important to know which one you are. One of the most important things when you're learning is to be relaxed. It is similar to when you cannot find your keys. The worst thing to do is to get all worked up and try harder. What you s ...

On college campuses, hazing is all a part of joining a fraternity or a sorority some people might say. Hazing defined in the Webster's Dictionary means to harass with silly, disagreeable, or demeaning tasks (322). How does this definition in terms differ to the way that hazing is displayed on the many college campuses? I plan on telling you in my essay three things that prove hazing is wrong. Ivy Zlotnick, president of Delta Phi Epsilon sorority said, "I find the university's definition of hazing any intentional, negligent, or reckless action, activity or situation which causes another pain, embarrassment, ridicule, or harassment, regardless of the individual's willingness to participate - w ...

Are Dreams Really A Mystery - 1,411 words
In the middle of the night, I was taking a walk through the woods. I could hear owls hooting and animals scattering under leaves. From the vague sound of water trickling over rocks, I knew my destination was coming soon. As I was walking, the heel of my foot got wedged between a stump and a rock. I started to sway and my heart stopped. Slowly I could feel my body fall towards the ground. Not knowing when I would fall, where I would land, what I would fall on or what might fall on me, made my heart start racing. My body shook and I opened my eyes. I looked around and noticed I was lying in my bed underneath my warm blanket. I had just had a dream but I am now safe in my bed. My heart settled ...

Stereochemistry Considerations - 2,279 words
What would you think if I gave you a drug and said this is going to help you but I want you to know ahead of time that 50% of the dose is not affected, in fact the drug is 50% not pure. The idea of that would make you feel you want another drug. The reality of that is that a large # of drugs we give are 50% impure and the reason is b/c so many drugs we give are racemic mixtures, a 50:50 mixture of enantiomers. Most drugs that demonstrate optical activity only one isomer is pharmalogically active, so what that means is that we are giving a product where 50% of it is inactive. There are some important considerations you have to take into account when you have drugs that are optically active an ...
