... overlooked the 14th Amendment, and saw it as an insignificant amendment. And as result of the dismissal of the 14th Amendment most private, and public companies like steamboats, hotels, and railroads either refused to serve blacks or set up separated The Second goal that the Reconstruction attempted to achieve, was the redistribution of land to African Americans and poor whites. However the distribution of homesteads, or seizure of land, one of Thaddeus Stevens ideas, met with little success. One reason was because the North and South resisted as much as it was in their power to delay or terminate the idea. In addition to this, most times the government was seizing land from Indian and M ...

Change Or Preserve - 811 words
The American Revolution was fought to change oppressive taxation and Legislation by the English government in order to reinstate the social political, and economic structure of the colonies before the English oppression. The colonists were very content with their lives until the implementation of heavy taxation and oppressive measures by the English government as well as many English companies, such as the East India Company. After the wars, America gained its independence, but based it's government around the welfare of the people, using John Locke's theory of government serving the people, instead of the people serving government. Before the heavy taxation and the despotic English laws, th ...

A horizontal plane is then passed through the hemisphere at the tops of these arches, providing a ring on which is built the dome, which has a diameter equal to the circle inscribed within the square. The pendentives are spherical triangles, the remaining portions of the first, or outer, hemisphere. At Hagia Sophia, two opposing arches on the central square open into semidomes, each pierced by three smaller radial semidomes, forming an oblong volume 31 m (100 ft) wide by 80 m (260 ft) long.

Mohunduras Ghandi: His Vital Role in India's Independence Mohunduras Ghandi was a man that the world thought could never exist. He believed strongly in all things that were good, and to him, there were no two ways about it. Leading the Indian people spiritually and morally, he inspired them to fight for Home Rule in which they achieved. He gave them courage to fight against Britain, and to work along side of the Muslims. The Congress, supported by Gandhi, and the Muslim League were opposites but Gandhi insisted that they work along side each other.

Cats Cradle - 926 words
Cat's Cradle is, "Vonnegut's most highly praised novels. Filled with humor and unforgettable characters, this apocalyptic story tells of Earth's ultimate end, and presents a vision of the future that is both darkly fantastic and funny, as Vonnegut weaves a satirical commentary on modern man and his madness" (Barnes and Noble n.pag). In Cat's Cradle, Kurt Vonnegut uses satire as a vehicle for threatened self-destruction when he designs the government of San Lorenzo. In addition, the Bokonists practice of Boko-maru, and if the world is going to end in total self destruction and ruin, then people will die, no matter how good people are and what religion people believe.

Puritanism In The Scarlet Letter - 965 words
The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne expresses the aspects of relationships, religion, community, discipline and punishment in the puritan community of 17th century Relationships between men and women were very constrained and that is what made adultery such a bad sin in the eyes of everyone in the community. Religion seemed to govern over all, people would look up to reverends and the community believed that fate was their destiny. Public discipline and punishment were used to discourage everyone else from committing the same crime or sin as the offending "criminal" did. The community was to follow the beliefs of god and to do their duties the best they could, yet were there to critici ...

... Zverkov, displaying the inner contradiction that makes Zverkov despise himself and his own values. The UM's description of his schooldays is predictable. The only new important piece of information that is the UM's family history--he was an orphan. The UM represents a character whose basic problems (before whatever insanity he has now) are insecurity and a need for acceptance, coupled with a constant feeling of alienation. The UM has never, throughout his entire life, had the benefit of a central group of people by whom he was accepted and loved. And, lacking that center, one can see how he entered his early school days feeling slighted and abandoned by the world, and carried these feeli ...

Bankruptcy - 1,027 words
Bankruptcy law provides for the development of a plan that allows a debtor, who is unable to pay his creditors, to resolve his debts through the division of his assets among his creditors. This supervised division also allows the interests of all creditors to be treated with some measure of equality. Certain bankruptcy proceedings allow a debtor to stay in business using revenue that continues to be generated to resolve his debts. An additional purpose of bankruptcy law is to allow certain debtors to free themselves (to be discharged) of the financial obligations they have accumulated, after their assets are distributed, even if their debts have not been paid in full. Bankruptcy law is feder ...

Do your homework and trouble-shooting before calling the printer manufacturer and blaming them for having a crappy printer. I will give you an example of what I am talking about. I was dealing with a PC support person for the Cleveland Cavaliers. I got an email stating that the printer has never worked since the day that they got it and has cost them thousands of dollars in down-time and he wanted to know what we planned on doing about it. I asked him what the problem was and he said, "It doesn't print jobs sometimes". Well, that is certainly helpful ...

To control human thoughts, intuition, emotions and actions are to control humanity, and that is exactly what the Inner Party had done in George Orwell's novel, Nineteen Eighty- Four. The Inner Party, most often refereed as the Party, had the power to control humanity or at least the civilians of Oceania. Most people that were born during the rein of the Party know no other way of life. They all grew up without emotions, freedom or an identity. Winston who vaguely remembers when times were different fantasizes about overthrowing the government. He realizes that the Party is not unbeatable but that it would take all the people of Oceania to recognize this before anything would change. The prob ...

... taken out of context. Even slavery was justified by using the cursed of Ham when he made fun of his father Noahs drunkenness. After hams son was cursed to be a slave to Shem and Japheths families, Shem had a son named Cush, which means black. This story in Genesis 9 is what the Confederate "Christians" used for keeping blacks as slaves, saying it was their curse. When the context is added to the content, a whole different picture can emerge. This story says only one son, Caanan was cursed. Caanan was Cushs brother so there cannot be even a generational curse to affect Cush or his ancestor. This may seem like a digression from the point, but to carry it full circle John 3:16, put in cont ...

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 ...

Commitment - 707 words
A man stands in front of a priest, turns and looks into the eyes of a woman and says, I do. The woman now turns and repeats the same sacred words. On hearing this, the priest pronounces the two, husband and wife, and declares, What God has put together let no man put apart. Marriage is perhaps the most obvious commitment two people can make, and for some, one of the most sacred. When one has made a commitment, it is their obligation to commit the action they are bound to perform and if necessary, continue it. Breaking a commitment not only impedes on the immediate persons involved in the vow, but our very selves. Although these commitments can take many forms, their ground rules stay the sam ...
