Enthusiastic Approach To College Admissions - 515 words
Ever since the beginning of high school, Ive had future aspirations of attending The University of Maryland. Last year, I applied to the University of Maryland as a senior in high school and was denied acceptance. Instead of shying away from my goal, I decided to apply again after attending Montgomery College. I am determined to attend the University of Maryland because I feel that it has the most to offer me as an undergraduate student. Maryland offers classes for a variety of majors and has a reputation for high quality programs in the health and science fields that interest me. I have not declared a major at this time, but have been currently taking classes in English, biology, history, m ...

Tqm - 1,479 words
A new type of structure is being used in many organizations today. That structure is labeled Total Quality Management (TQM). This approach involves guaranteeing that an organization functions with a commitment to quality and continuous improvement in meeting its consumers needs. With any type of change there will always be a number of bumps in the road which slow down the process that can help a company increase the workers morale, production, profits and over all positive environment to conduct business.

Government Intervention And Antitrust Law - 1,672 words
Government Intervention in Individual Markets: A Look at Government Intervention and Antitrust Law via the Microsoft Case Growth and Development in the US Economy In light of recent developments, I took a different approach to this paper. The Microsoft Antitrust case has been somewhat of a phenomenon that has become one of the most prominent cases in recent years. Because of this, I decided to look at government intervention into individual markets, along with antitrust law, via that particular case. I am of the opinion that we can learn a great deal by using that particular ongoing litigation. Antitrust law protects the public from companies that attain an undue domination of the marketplac ...

The Conflict In The Short Story Hands - 1,295 words
"Hands, by Sherwood Anderson, is a story that seems to be stripped of sentimentality, yet conveys emotion. Anderson tells the somber story of a misunderstood and wrongfully accused man. The protagonist, Wing Biddlebaum, failed to communicate his true self. His inner desires were repressed because conventions and tradition distorted and twisted them. As mentioned before, the central character in Hands is Wing Biddlebaum. He is clearly a round character because he has more than one side to his personality throughout the story. Wing is dynamic because he makes a change from a kind, outgoing, enthusiastic teacher to a withdrawn, frightened person. For as much as Wing is described, there are stil ...

What Turns Walt Whitman On - 1,702 words
I am going to discuss, in relation to this question, Jane Austen's work both book and film " Sense and Sensibility". Both of them, in different ways, examine the story of two sisters and their love affairs. They also show us with a trenchant observation and in meticulous detail, which Jane Austen possesses, "the quiet, day-to-day country life of the upper-middle-class English". For, in parallel with the two these specific works, I will try to present my opinion according to how "Sense" is a plus and "Sensibility a minus. Moreover I can say that Jane Austen is an astute observer of human life, and that it refers to this excellent treatment of the complex relationship between "Sense and Sensib ...

Economic Reasons For American Independence - 1,309 words
Economic Reasons for American Independence The thirteen colonies that became the USA were originally colonies of Great Britain. By the time the American Revolution took place, the citizens of these colonies were beginning to get tired of the British rule. Rebellion and discontent were rampant. For those people who see the change in the American government and society a real Revolution, the Revolution is essentially an economic one. The main reason the colonies started rebelling against 'mother England' was the taxation issue. The colonies debated England's legal power to tax them and, furthermore, did not wish to be taxed without representation. This was one of the main causes of the Revolut ...

The Misunderstood - 4,125 words
Sadly, modern Americans seem to have done a better job preserving what Thomas Jefferson has left us in bricks and mortar than we have preserving his ideas. Tourists visiting Charlottesville, Virginia, can witness firsthand the ongoing efforts to preserve Jefferson's home at Monticello as well as his splendid little "Academical Village," the Lawn, which is still a vital center of student life at the University of Virginia. Further down the road, near Lynchburg, Virginia, preservationists have begun restoring Poplar Forest, Jefferson's retreat home. Scholars have been less successful in keeping alive his philosophy, particularly his ideas about government -- despite the copious record he left ...

Hitlers Rise To Power - 1,840 words
Who or what was responsible for Hitlers rise to power? Many believe that there was only one factor for his rise to power. Some state that Hitler could not have risen to power in any other than Germany, implying that he was nothing more than a product of German culture.

History - 1,220 words
Most people in our society think of the Vietnam War as a tragedy, or a negative time in our history that was later viewed as a misstep. These comments are true and most-certainly conventional. However, does the average person realize how large of an impact it had on the men who fought? When questioned on the Vietnam War, it can be rightly assumed that many Americans would know that it lasted over a decade. Maybe even a few would know that over 14,000 U.S. troops were killed in 1968, alone, (Appy, 7). The reality is that factual information such as this can only take you so far. It is not until we feel the experience through personal accounts, do we fully understand the Vietnam War. Since the ...

Some parents are complaining about public schools not doing their job. On standardized tests, the reading scores are low and many children are neither excited about learning how to read or about going to school. The public school districts have gone back and forth from phonics to whole language and now the emphasis has shifted back to the teaching of phonics and phonemic awareness to teach reading. As teachers, we are tired of being tossed back and forth on this pendulum. We know that in the real classroom it is be ...
