Nuclear Warfare - 1,275 words
The effects caused by a nuclear power accident, on the scale of the April 26, 1986 Chernobyl accident, must override any inclination to side with advocates for nuclear power.

Furthermore, the wastes generated by nuclear power, when inadvertently released during a nuclear power accident, have been proven to cause malignant diseases and premature death to those who come into contact with them. Additionally, the vegetation threa ...

A Modernday Revolution American Turmoil In The 1960s - 1,547 words
Hubert Humphrey once stated, When we say, One nation under God, with liberty and justice for all, we are talking about all people. We either ought to believe it or quit saying it (Hakim 111). During the 1960s, a great number of people did, in fact, begin to believe it. These years were a time of great change for America. The country was literally redefined as people from all walks of life fought to uphold their standards on what they believed a true democracy is made of; equal rights for all races, freedom of speech, and the right to stay out of wars in which they felt they didnt belong. The music of the era did a lot of defining and upholding as well; in fact, it was a driving force, or at ...

City - 1,332 words
Cities exist for many reasons and the diversity of urban form and function can be traced to the complex roles that cities perform. Cities serve as centers of storage, commerce, and industry. The agricultural surplus from the surrounding country hinterland is processed and distributed within the city. Urban areas have also developed around marketplaces, where imported goods from distant places could be exchanged for the local products. Throughout history, cities have been founded at the intersections of transportation routes, or at points where market goods must shift from one mode of transportation to another such as river or ocean ports as well as railways.

His Report on Manufacturers, 1791, itself entitles Hamilton to a position as an epoch economist. It was the first great revolt from Adam Smith's Wealth of Nations (1776). It, in part, argued for a system of moderate protective duties associated with a deliberate policy of promoting national interests. The inspirations from this work became England's official economic policy and remain the primary foundation of the German economic system. His masterly opinion on the implied powers of the Constitution persuaded Washington of the Constitut ...

Some cameras will need this process to finish before taking another picture, some cameras have an internal buffer that is large enough to hold a number of pictures, and can therefore take multiple pictures in a row, called burst shooting. Before a picture is taken the camera must prepare for it. That is why there is sometimes a delay from when the shutter release button is pressed and when the picture is actually taken.

On Philip Larkins This Be The Verse - 1,269 words
This Be the Verse by Philip Larkin They *censored* you up, your mum and dad. They may not mean to, but they do. They fill you with the faults they had And add some extra, just for you. But they were *censored*ed up in their turn By fools in old-style hats and coats, Who half the time were sloppy-stern And half at one another's throats. It deepens like a coastal shelf. And don't have any kids yourself. Lately, I have read a good deal of poems by Philip Larkin, and one unifying factor that I have noticed is that Larkin never seems to use a filler. Every word in every one of his poems seems to be carefully crafted and placed, to the point where the flow and rhythm of the poem seem almost an acc ...

What Really Happened - 1,660 words
When someone views this picture for the first time there is usually a feeling of shock at what they see. This feeling is clearly understandable if you are just shown the picture by itself with no caption or background information. It is the lack of facts and truths that have caused this very photograph to be the center of so much controversy and debate. When this photo was taken from a video clip filmed at the bombing of Trang Bang in June of 1972 the correct version of the story was reported. Since then and in other journalist's stories the truth has become distorted over time and this photo has become an icon for the anti-war movement.
