A Journey Through The Golden Gates Of Promise - 2,246 words
A Journey Though the Golden Gates of Promise Great controversy exists over the true promises of the Golden Gates in the United States. Discrimination occurs with different ethnic groups, but for those immigrants permitted into the country, the opportunities are excellent. The laws and practices established to control immigration into the United States limit the amount of poverty that can be present in the country. Without these important practices and laws created by the United States Congress, cheap labor would overpower American citizen labor and lead the country to an economic and social catastrophe. Although the United States is often criticized for its establishment of immigration laws ...

Golden Age Of Women - 495 words
The occurrence of events during a specific period of time always introduces different mentalities and ideas to everybody in the world. Such is the case with the so-called "Golden Age" for women, which took place int he colonial period. Many scholars say that the women who immigrated to the United States from Britain during the colonizing years enjoyed many privileges that thei other sisters from across the ocean did not have. This in turn brought the notion to label this specific period in time the "Golden Age" for women. On the other hand it is justified to ask just what specific "privileges" these women were given. In the "Myth of the Golden Age" by Mary Beth Norton, the reader can clearly ...

From The Sea The Golden Rule - 748 words
Throughout Odysseus' many adventures in his efforts to return home to Ithaca, Homer describes many various cultures that his title character meets along the way. Though many of these cultures could be identified as subcultures of the Greek world, each has unique qualities that separate it from the other cultures. Chief among these qualities is the set of values and morals that serve to define a culture's viewpoint toward life. This is no different in regards to the Phaeacian society on whose land Odysseus washes ashore after leaving Calypso's Island. The Phaeacian value system is aligned to support the society's seafaring nature and love of the sea. As a result, the system of values rotates ...

The Golden Apples Of The Sun - 417 words
Twenty two stories, each as enchanting as the last. From tales of small towns, spaceships, and even sea serpents, Bradbury conjures up a wealth of images with which to astound us. Some tales have a twist, some don't, but each and every one has charm. From the opening story the reader is hooked, drawn into Ray Bradbury's universe. The most invigorating thing about this work, like so many of his others, is that there are no limits. Bradbury never concerned himself with mundane, vanilla flavoured reality, he much preffered to take his readers on fantastic journeys through time and space. This particular collection was originally released in 1953, but doesn't suffer anything by it. It is as fres ...

Golden Age Of Athens And Women - 786 words
The Golden Age of Athens was one of the most brilliant eras in Athenian history. Yet this brilliance did not reflect womens roles during this time period. The Golden Age of Athens was a low point for women; through societys opinion of women, the citys politics, and their household lives. The Athenians viewed all classes of women as an unimportant distraction to society. The most constant view of woman in the Golden Age was that they were only necessary to produce children. Euripides from his book Medea writes: If only children could be got some other way without the female sex! If woman didnt exist, human life would be rid of its miseries(www.angelfire.com/ca3/ancientchix). Women were viewed ...

Domus Aurea Golden House Of Nero - 901 words
In AD 64, Nero set fire to the city of Rome. The exact reasons he did it are not fully known. It is thought that he partly did for poetic or artistic purposes, or for the purpose of clearing away a city that had currently dissatisfied him. In its place however he did rebuild a better Rome, for the most part that is. A large portion, and arguably too large of a portion, was expropriated for the use of his own residence to be called the Domus Aurea. This is translated: The Golden House, and so, the residence is called: The Golden House of Nero. While the Domus Aurea had rather unjustified reasoning behind it, it is one of the greatest architectural achievements of the ancient world. Neros resi ...

The social structure and the family structure strove to follow hierarchy, and filial piety, the ideals of families of that time and times before. In the family, men were seen as the dominant figures of the household. It was expected that the men would work and handle all of the important things, for example the business matter and financial matter. Men wanted to feel empowered and have subordinates such as their female counterparts. Women, on the other hand, were supposed to tend to the needs of the ...

... rd, thus collapsing them. A building's vertical supporting walls thus had to be made extremely thick and heavy in order to contain the barrels vaults outward thrust. Medieval masons solved this difficult problem about 1120 with a number of brilliant innovations First and foremost they developed a ribbed vault, in which arching and intersecting stone ribs support a vaulted ceiling surface that is composed of mere thin stone panels. This greatly reduced the weight (and thus the outward thrust) of the ceiling vault, and since the vault's weight was now carried at discrete points (the ribs) rather than along a continuous wall edge, separate widely spaced vertical piers to support the ribs co ...

A Golden Story Spun Of Straw - 392 words
Besides being a powerful work written by Shakespeare, Macbeth was also a gruesome tragedy about the deaths of many people including Macbeth's wife. For a person that lived through such tough circumstances, the fact that Macbeth chose to describe life as "a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing" is no surprise. Macbeth was a corrupt man given different perspectives on life than most normal people. Life is not "a tale told by an idiot," but a truly splendid gift given from God which many people Love, one of the most sacred traits of life, is not a "silly" matter that can easily be forgotten.

Mankind's Golden Boy - 475 words
Ralph, the athletic, charismatic protagonist of Lord of the Flies, represents the struggle for order and democracy in society. Golding describes Ralph as tall for his age and handsome, and he seems to preside over the other boys by a natural sense of authority. He is old enough, twelve years and a few months, to have lost the prominent tummy of childhood. He has fair hair and is thin. Golding writes: You could see now that he might make a boxer, as far as width and heaviness of shoulders went, but there was a mildness about his mouth and eyes that proclaimed no devil. p. 10-11 Described as being big enough to be a link with the adult world of authority, he is elected the leader of the boys a ...

Geneticall Engineered Golden Rice - 936 words
At one time, golden rice was just a wild idea that Ingo Potrykus thought up. Optimally, golden rice would improve the lives of millions of the poorest people in the world. The rice would contain beta-carotene which is the building block for vitamin A. However, imagining golden rice was one thing and bringing it into existence was another. He struggled for years with his colleagues to deal with the finicky growing habits of the rice they transplanted to a greenhouse near the foot hills of the Swiss Alps. Potrykus and his colleagues became successful in the spring of 1999. By creating golden rice, Potrykus wanted to be sure it would reach malnourished children of the developing world; those fo ...

Comparison Of "til We Have Faces" And "the Golden Ass" - 1,424 words
Recently I have had the pleasure of reading Till We Have Faces by C. S. Lewis and The Golden Ass by Apuleius. Both are accounts of the myth of the marriage of Cupid and Psyche. Since they are in essence the same story, there are of course many things similar in both stories. However, since both stories were written in such different time periods by such different authors, there are also many differences. In this essay I will present and discuss both these similarities and differences. The stories both begin in the same manner. A king has three daughters of whom the youngest is so beautiful that men worship her as a goddess and neglect the worship of Aphrodite for her sake. This results in co ...

The Jews In Spain During The Golden Age - 1,477 words
The Golden Age of Spain was golden for the Jews not only because of their succession in science, literature, diplomacy and military pursuits, but also in their endeavors to advance. The history of Spain, between the rule of the Romans and the Catholic Monarchs was not among the highlights of the Jews. Nonetheless, this was the life of the Jews then, but the years before their departure were prosperous, and they created a strong and arduous culture. The economic and political situation, during the middle centuries of Moorish rule created an atmosphere in which the Jews were able to build up their cultural confidence. They transformed the life style, learning more about agricultural, and focus ...

The Golden Girls - 1,093 words
I am going to be writing about the lifetime television show, " The Golden Girls". There are many different episodes and I have probably seen them all, at least twice. I first started watching the show with my mom. My curfew when I was in high school was 11:00 or 11:30. While I was going into detail about the many things that had happened that night, "The Golden Girls" would be on. At first I did not enjoy them, but as I got to know the characters I was addicted. First, and most important there is Blanch Devereaux, played by Rue McClananan, born 1935, in Healdton, Oklahoma. She is the Southern Belle, and also, the homeowner.

McCarty used his ability to put issues simply, among other things, to beat his opponent by nearly a 2 to 1 ratio. The Senatorial career of Joseph R. McCarthy was on its way. In his first three years as senator, McCarthy was an everyday senator. He was guided by money from lobbyists, and the most interesting of these are stints with Pepsi-Cola and the real estate-prefab home industry. At the time, sugar was strictly rationed. According to Richard Rovere in his book Senator Joe McCarthy, the Allied Molasses Company, sugar supplier for Pepsi, somehow got a hold of a million and a ...
