Dochyels Grand Adventure - 716 words
Dochyel stood very stiffly at the bottom of the old stairs that lead up to the attic. He held a large serving spoon that was stained with spaghetti in his right hand. In his left hand he firmly held one of his mothers cast iron lids to her frying pan. On his head he sported a metal spaghetti strainer. He was prepared to face anything that was up there. He looked up the chipped stairs, but just by the look of them he didn't want to go up because they were old and cracked and he was afraid the stairs would eat him before he reached the top. He stepped on the first step, it squeaked under his pressure, as did all the other steps. His foot made a small thud as he continued up the stairs. He grip ...

Grand Unified Theory - 377 words
There are many laws to help us understand motion and the way things move and work. Most of the modern excepted theories were either thought up by Sir Isaac Newton or Albert Einstein, and Greenes theory tried to tie them all together. Sir Isaac Newton came up with the 3 general laws of motion to help describe how things work. His first law is based on the Galilieos ideas. An object in motion stays in motion, until an outside force acts on the object. His second law states that the force of an object is equal to the amount of the mass times the acceleration. For example, take a rock and throw it. The heavier the rock is and the faster you throw it, the harder the rock will make an impact. Sir ...

How To Make A Grand Entrance. - 1,406 words
A great man once said, first impressions last. But as I have no idea who this man was, I think he himself was having a little trouble giving a good lasting impression. But why? And what makes a good first impression? Comedy? Tragedy? I assume not history, as the most boring parts in my life have been over written in my memory. I took this question as my duty, nay, my purpose to find the answer. I was preparing for a speech on the next night and figured I was sure to win with an entrance that could not be forgotten.

Candide - 1,931 words
Translated with an Introduction by John Butt In a world of bureaucrats, engineers, and producers, Voltaire is the necessary philosopher. While Candide is without a doubt a farcical, humorous, and far-fetched tale, a seriousness lies beneath its satirical veneer. Candide is the story of an innocent young man embarking on a series of adventures during which he discovers much evil in the world. Throughout his journey Candide believes in and adheres to the philosophy of his teacher, Pangloss, that "all is for the best in the best of all possible worlds." This philosophy was prevalent during Voltaire's day, and Candide is Voltaire's scathing response to what he saw as an absurd belief that for it ...

Public Hangings - 1,364 words
Capital punishment seemed to have been regenerated from the beginning of mankind, where beheading was considered an honorable method of meeting death, whereas hanging carried with it a definite stigma. The era of public hanging was emotionally satisfying even though the surroundings was emotionally tense. In contrast to private hangings where they were fewer observers, less theatrical from the accuse and hanging was becoming more of an inhuman punishment to inflict on those found guilty of their crime. Both forms of hangings were though to be an effective way of preventing individuals from committing a crime. Capital punishment seemed morally acceptable, to the public and there were individu ...

... than into it. This is because the forms in the painting work together on the surface as a wave of light and shadow that contributes to the movement of the eye and evokes a sense of time and space. The scenes of his paintings are arbitrarily cut out of a larger context rather than composed with a distinctive compositionally framed effect (Russel, 1969) Poussin's style, while incorporating some aspects of the Baroque sensibilities, was well labeled French Classicism. To distinguish his style, however, as merely classicism would be to oversimplify his work and indeed the work of the period itself. French Classicism, while mostly classical in nature, embodies stylistic tendencies from many ...
