Forest Of Voices - 939 words
In Chris Andersons essay titled Forest of Voices he talks about the forest around his house and what it means to him. However there is a much deeper meaning to his essay. Throughout the essay, one can get a hint of human interference and human interaction with forests. Anderson once thought of the forest as a place to get away from things and go hike and explore. He, like many others, just saw the trees from his place in town as a line of timber. His thoughts were changed however when he moved up to the boundary of the forest. He started to learn about the trees and how they provide habitat for many animals and different things. Anderson wanted us to know that he supports forests without act ...

Tuskegee National Forest - 557 words
The 11,000 acres now known as the Tuskegee National Forest was originally a vast cotton field, home to sharecroppers. These sharecroppers planted cotton each year until the soil was no longer fit for yielding crops. This incidence caused the sharecroppers to relocate to Shorter, Alabama. This also allowed those same 11,000 acres to be established as the Tuskegee National Forest. Much of the forest is a lone leaf pine ecosystem that contains plants such as blue stem grass, blueberries, yucca, and L. bicolor, which is a rampantly growing weed that is a popular food source for deer. This weed, however, has proven to be a problem for rangers because it grows so uncontrollably. Forest management ...

Forest Gump - 713 words
There is a huge difference between very bad movies and very good ones. Thats because films can be on either side of the quality scale. A good movie has the ability to burrow deep into the subconscious, with unpredictable and occasional remarkable results. A great work of art can cause euphoria, touch a deep emotional chord, or, in rare cases effect fundamental changes in a persons outlook on life. A movie that can do all of the above and more is Forrest Gump. Forrest Gump is a movie with a great cast, a good moral lesson and a refreshing outlook on life. Forrest Gump has a great cast including two times Oscar winner Tom Hanks, Sally Fields, and Robin Wright. In this movie We have a special b ...

The Scafolding Vs. The Forest - 730 words
Nathaniel Hawthorne's The Scarlet Letter, a dark tale of sin and redemption, centers on the small Puritan community of Boston during the seventeenth century. In the center of this bustling community is the market place. With in it are all the central features of the town, the most symbolic of these is the scaffold. Many a soul is scarred upon this scaffold. It is a place of intense scrutiny and upon it, reality comes into a brutal light. In exceptional contrast to the scaffold is the forest beyond the town.

The Greenhouse Effect - 1,061 words
While some people believe the earth's climatic changes are due to the fact that the universe is getting older, others believe it is due to the greenhouse effect. The greenhouse effect is a naturally occuring phenomenon that is responsible for trapping heat near the earth's surface and keeping the planet warm. It is called the greenhouse effect because the way it works is similar to the way in which a green house functions. In a greenhouse sunlight passes through the transparent roof and walls and strikes the objects inside- plants, flowerpots, tables, and so forth. These objects absorb energy from sun, become warmer, and then give off energy themselves in the form of heat. Only a little of t ...

Mark Twain - 1,447 words
MARK TWAIN a.k.a. Samuel Langhorne Clemens "Mark Twain, which is a pseudonym for Samuel Langhorne Clemens, was born in 1835, and died in 1910. He was an american writer and humorist. Maybe one of the reasons Twain will be remembered is because his writings contained morals and positive views. Because Twain's writing is so descriptive, people look to his books for realistic interpretations of places, for his memorable characters, and his ability to describe his hatred for hypocrisy and oppression. HE believed he could write. Most authors relied on other people and what they said, but because Twain was so solitary, he made himself so successful. 1" "When he was younger, his family moved.

Colonialism - 1,934 words
Colonialism has often spread to areas where it is economically valuable for the colonizer to develop. South America was one of these places. First came the Spanish for gold, then for rubber. As colonization took place two cultures met, thinking they were opposites, but in reality they were very much connected to one another, their histories were now tied together. In considering the question of how Indians have developed their healing practices and spiritual beliefs as a reaction to colonization, there are a number of areas we must explore. First, we will discuss how Indian and white cultures have integrated one another to the point where certain beliefs coexist or blend together. Secondly, ...

Compare Two Paintings - 1,479 words
Hunting Dogs by Jean-Dsir-Gustave Courbet is the first painting I looked at and I was created in 1867. The painting is oil on canvas and the size of it is 361/2 x 58 inch. Courbet paints two dogs and a dead hare in the woods. The woods are becoming dark and the sun is setting. The painting is dark and gloomy except for the quarreling dogs that the sun is directly setting on. With fine brushstrokes he sets a depressing mood because of the choice of dark colors. This picture is a very good example of its times because many paintings at that time told stories. The stories they told is what many people believed but no one dared to say in paintings or even words. This painting shows realism that ...
