The Misogyny Of The Artist As A Young Man - 1,811 words
The Misogyny of the Artist as a Young Man In most novels there are always certain aspects of the protagonist's life that serve as the basis from which the character is motivated to create or to encounter particular events. Often times these motivations are the key that the protagonist needs in order to realize their meaning in life and where their destinations lie. James Joyce cleverly uses the presence and appeal of women in his novel A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man to allow his protagonist, Stephen Dedalus, to become cognizant of his role in life, but not without first being subjected to manipulation and confusion. Stephen's stringent childhood of strict Irish Catholicism and all-m ...

A Separate Peice - 616 words
"I'm almost glad this war came along. It is like a test, isn't it, and only the things and people who've been evolving in the right way survive." Lepper Leppellier said this extraordinary quote in chapter nine. My interpretation of Lepper's quote was, the war had forced the men to abide by the rule of, "survival of the fittest." From the perspective of the war, Lepper implied that you need to be prepared mentally and physically for war; you also need to adapt to changes and mature to survive. People and societies change in times of war. Some people, including Lepper, become manic-depressive and may possibly go insane. Others resort to suicide. However, war may make others feel important and ...

Views Of Mans Nature - 611 words
Mans nature can be looked at in many different ways. Observing a few of the several views helps one to appreciate all of the positive and negative characteristics man has brought forth. The majority of the views are negative, or pessimistic, and they are attracted to the thought of whether man has any hope, whereas the positive views focus on the outstanding needs and abilities of man. Christmas has its positive and negative characteristics to it as well, which is a good example. One of the positive point of views came from Ashley Montigu, who was an optimistic man that believed that the outstanding characteristic of mankind is his ability to learn. Such aspects of life including physical ne ...

Marijuna - 1,316 words
Marijuana, the crude drug made from the leaves and flowering tops of the cannabis sativa plant, contains hundreds of active chemicals. Of the 421 chemicals identified in the plant, 70 are cannabinoids (chemicals found only in the marijuana plant and nowhere else in nature). Cannabinoids are stored in the fat parts of cell membranes for long periods of time and interfere with normal cell functioning. Since the 70 annabinoids are fat-soluble, they build up or accumulate in body tissue. Three to seven days after using marijuana, a 50 percent level of biochemical activity will remain in the cells. It takes the body 20 to 30 days to metabolize or wash out the chemicals from the marijuana. Some cl ...

Problem Solving How Do We Combat Child Abuse - 1,939 words
Imagine being a young child. Picture that someone is mistreating you, and you are completely unable to retaliate in any way. Imagine what would be running through your mind, all of the fear and hatred that you can do nothing with except hold it all inside.

The Developing Child - 1,212 words
As a child develops throughout his or her life, there are distinct stages, which are milestones in which they are observed as developmental stages. The stages are broken down into certain age groups, one of which is early childhood. Early childhood is the ages between two and six. I will focus on the ages of three to four. With three and four year old children, there are many different development stages. Those stages are physical, the outside appearance of the development, intellectual, which is how the child develops with regards to knowledge and overall "booksmartness". The third is social and emotional development which takes into account a child's attitudes, feelings, and way of coping ...

Alcohol In College - 362 words
Alcohol and drugs come hand in hand with attending college, this statement is thought to be truthful when talking about college or universities. One of the reasons we think this statement is true is because as a college student you are given certain gifts. Freedom is one of the many gifts that are given to a college student. I call it a gift because its a privilege given to a student while attending college. The student does not have anyone to tell them what to do, what time to be home, whether or not to go to class and so on. With freedom you are forced to face certain situations and one of them is drinking, and taking drugs while at school. The student is forced to choose between the acade ...

Cognitive And Emotional Growth - 485 words
EVALUATION OF COGNITIVE AND EMOTIONAL GROWTH The child that I have chosen to evaluate is a boy named Eric. I chose Eric because I have been following his growth since September of 1998. Eric is a student in my seventh grade social studies class, and he was in my sixth grade social studies/language arts class last year. Because I have known him for a while and have seen his growth for over a year, I thought that he would be a good specimen. I suppose that Eric also sticks out in my mind because he is big for his age and is noticeably immature compared to many of his classmates. He is twelve years old this year and is fast approaching six feet. He is still somewhat stuck in the stage of cognit ...

Euthanasia - 1,721 words
Many people confronted with a terminal illness are confused about what they can do as a dying person. This is when euthanasia is often discussed. Deciding that this is the only option is a long drawn out process. Being that a large part of American society is of Christian beliefs, it is necessary to look at morality based on religion. The main pro-suicide argument deals completely within the issue of choice. If life is seen as a covenant, or temporary loan from God, the freedom to choose how that loan is repaid should lie directly within the person contemplating euthanasia. Since life is not a gift of choice, is it just to, under Christian morality, be able to choose the details and time of ...

Physical educators come in many different forms like, teachers, coaches, and even trainers for a gym. Physical education has had many different kinds of educators in its time, but the one that impressed me the most was Dr. Hetherington. Dr. Hetherington was the father of modern physical education. His philosophy was that exercise and recreation should be as necessary as mathematics and English. Our nation today is one of the most out of shape nations in the world today and that is something that we need to work on. (Nov. 11, 1999-Health Mag.) Physica ...

Spina Bifida - 483 words
Spina Bifida is a Latin term meaning split spine. It is the name given to a group of birth defects, which interfere with the development of the central nervous system: the brain, the spinal cord and the nerve tissues. It results from the failure of the spine to close properly during the first month of pregnancy. In severe cases, the spinal cord protrudes through the back and may be covered by skin or a thin membrane. Surgery to close a newborn's back is generally performed within 24 hours after birth to minimize the risk of infection and to preserve existing function in the spinal cord. Because of the paralysis resulting from the damage to the spinal cord, people born with spina bifida may n ...

A Community can be defined as a group of people who don't just live in the same area, but also share the same interests, experiences and often concerns about the area in which they live. Often when individuals have lived in a street or area for a while they become familiar with each other and the issues surrounding them. Children often attend the same schools and in many cases grow up together, again sharing the similar experiences. In some instances adults may work together, and quite commonly all community members will share the same doctors, dentists, hospitals, health visitors and other public services and facilities. Frequently however, issues arise amongst a community that need attenti ...

[Theaters of the Mind] Graeme Taylor provides a example of this behaviour in Disorders of Affect Regulation: During the early months of therapy it became evident that James struggled with a great deal of anger and rage, but usually he was unaware of such feelings until he lost control. On one occasion, he impulsively punched his fist through a wall. Exploration of this event revealed that he had been bothered a few hours earlier by pressure from a salesperson but had failed to identify his feelings; nor had he linked ...

We have an intersubjective agreement. Alas, such an agreement is meaningless. We cannot (yet) measure sadness, quantify it, crystallize it, access it in any way from the outside. We are totally and absolutely reliant on your introspection and my introspection. There is no way anyone can prove that my "sadness" is even remotely similar to your sadness. I may be feeling or experiencing something that you might find hilarious and not sad at all. Still, I call it "sadness" and I empathize with you. This would not have ...
