Why Im Afraid Of Bees - 974 words
The story starts off with Gary Lutz sitting under his big oak tree in his back yard reading his comic books. Then Gary's pain in the butt neighbor, Mr. Andretti, keeps scaring Gary by telling Gary that Mr. Andretti's beehive has gone crazy. Gary falls for it every time because Gary is afraid of bees. All day, Gary reads his comic books because he hates to do anything else. No one likes Gary because they think he's a nerd, because he stinks at sports and looks weird.

So, one of the big kids came up to him and punched him in the nos ...

Victories - 619 words
Saturday nights usually involve some sort of stress relief for most college students. One Saturday, like many others involved some drinking to cope with college life. But, unlike other Saturdays this one ended with my roommate, Jeff, in the hospital and me with a two hundred and nine-dollar ticket and a new outlook on the River Falls Police Department. The clock said 9:00pm and Jeff and I decided we should head to a party. Freezing rain drizzled throughout the afternoon leaving a slippery walk for us. Our intake of alcohol adversely affected our half-mile trek to the party house. As we entered the house we could hear the sound of music blaring from the basement. After purchasing a cup, we he ...

Hotel Security - 1,191 words
In the Hotel Whether traveling on business or pleasure it may become necessary to stay overnight in a hotel or motel. It is important to give some thought about security, and what hotel or motel you select, and what room you are willing to accept. The cost of the hotel room is not always the best predictor of how safe the room or property will be. There are a few security rules that should apply to any hotel room you rent. Always request a room on an upper floor, if possible. Ground floor rooms are more vulnerable to crime problems because of access and ease of escape.

Affirmative Action - 1,728 words
4. THE JUSTIFICATIONS FOR AFFIRMATIVE ACTION: THE CONTINUING NEED TO COMBAT DISCRIMINATION AND PROMOTE INCLUSION Affirmative action was established as part of society's efforts to address continuing problems of discrimination; the empirical evidence presented in the preceding chapter indicates that it has had some positive impact on remedying the effects of discrimination.

Psychlogy Of Fashion - 1,750 words
It has been said that individuals act out the roles that are associated with their identities and positions in society. This statement clearly relates to the case studies provided in the assignment package. It states that we have to look the part to play the part. This is an ingenious statement because what we look like is often controlled by society and it's positions we take. An example would be the career positions that we usually desire to occupy. If we do not own businesses, we tend to want to work for large companies. Such companies, admired by us, are usually image-controlled. Disney employs 32000 people on Orlando and it operates the most obsessive image-control program outside of mi ...

Junk The Junk Mail - 1,457 words
It is another Wednesday morning, and I am again sitting at the front desk of my dormitory at 9 am. The US Postal Service just delivered today's mail, and the other Wednesday-morning deskworker and I are preparing to search for names, check mailbox numbers, sort the mail, and place it into mailboxes. I hate working the mail shift, but I do it because I get paid nine dollars an hour for relatively brainless work. Even though I lose a few hours of sleep, I get some good laughs and entertainment in return, especially on a day like today when an array of catalogs stocks two entire mail bins. After three years at this job, I continue to be amazed at both the number of catalogs certain people recei ...
