Report from Los Angels County Museum of Art The Los Angeles County Museum of Art is the premier visual arts museum in the Western United States. Its holdings include more than 150,000 works spanning the history of art from ancient times to the present. Moreover, the museum has seasonal exhibitions, which focus on many different types of artists every month. The variety of artwork fascinates visitors and never bores them. I am a frequent visitor of the museum, and, this time, I was enchanted by the sculpture Lady, which was created by Michael Lucero in 1999. The sculptures body simulates Roman or Greek statues, but there is no human-like head. Instead of creating the head, he randomly stacked ...

Marketing Plan - 1,625 words
Marketing plan for ice dreams, an icecream shop Ice Dreams will sell shave ice as its primary product in addition to soft drinks and frosty Latin drinks called licuados. Shave ice is the hottest new dessert since frozen yogurt! Shave ice is heating up rapidly and shows no sign of cooling (Crystal Fresh, Inc., 1995). Shave ice has been around for many years, beginning in Asia, then becoming popular in Hawaii. People would shave ice by hand, creating a cold, flaky snow. Then they'd top it with fruit juices to create a refreshing treat. Something this good couldn't remain a secret. In recent years, the taste for shave ice has spread all over the world. Shave ice is much different than a sno-con ...

Contractors Work Providers Or Abusers - 1,890 words
Contratistas: Work Providers or Abusers? My problem is the contratistas (labor contractors) continual abuse of immigrants that come from Mexico to California; I believe it is wrong. I am trying to address any reader of this essay in order to further educate and make clear that the abuse of immigrants is not right. The immigrants wages have fallen while the profits have hit a record high. The immigrants are also continuously cheated out of their wages by the contratistas. Farmers medical benefits have decreased and in some places disappeared, and the laborers are forced to live in overrun and overcrowded houses. According to a San Jose Mercury News article called Farm workers face hard times; ...

Robert Frosts poetic images and topics changed as a result of the depression. Reflected in Robert Frosts poetry lie the feelings and concerns of Americans, expressed through different poetic images and topics.

The Civil War - 1,536 words
During the American Civil War, which lasted from 1861-1865, over 620,000 accounted soldiers were killed. Known as the "the first modern war", historians generally agree that the reason for this was because this was a time of transition for the military. Armies and Navies were still using tactics where they would gather large forces of firepower to bear on the enemy. At the same time, weapons were being developed which were accurate and lethal well beyond any arms of the earlier conflicts. As a result of these two conditions many more casualties were sustained. Add to that the lack of medical knowledge of disease and infection and the numbers truly began to grow. This paper is an overview of ...

Prohibition - 1,564 words
Prohibition did not achieve its goals. Instead, it added to the problems it was intended to solve (Thorton 15). On the midnight of January 16, 1920, one of the personal habits and customs of most Americans came to a halt. The Eighteenth Amendment was put into affect and all importing, exporting, transporting, selling, and manufacturing of intoxicating liquor was put to an end. Shortly following the enactment of the Eighteenth Amendment, the National Prohibition Act, or the Volstead Act, as it was called because of its author, Andrew J. Volstead, was put into effect. This determined intoxicating liquor as anything having an alcoholic content of more than 0.5 percent, omitting alcohol used for ...

Diynysos - 1,488 words
Winter squalls are drained out of the sky. The violet season of flowering spring smiles. The black earth glitters under green lawns. Swelling plants pop open with tiny petals. Meadows laugh and suck the morning dew, while the rose unfolds. The shepherd in the hills happily blows the top notes of his pipe. The gathered gloats over his white kids. Sailors race across the thrashing waves. Their canvas full of the harmless breeze. Drinkers acclaim the grape-giver Dionysus, capping their hair with flowering ivy. (Bernard). Dionysus, in Greek mythology is a god of wine and vegetation, who showed mortals how to cultivate grapevines and make wine. He was good and gentle to those who honored him, but ...

Everyone consistently using creatine is making gains in lean mass. There is one good reason why three out of four of the '96 summer Olympic medallists used creatine: it works and it works well. A French scientist first discovered creatine in 1832, but it was not until 1923 that scientists discovered that over 95% of creatine is stored in muscle tissue. The first published report of creatine having bodybuilding effects was The Journal of Biological Chemistry in, get this, 1926! Although weve known about creatine for quite some time, the first real u ...

Vikings - 2,404 words
The Vikings were a group of Scandinavian raiders that were around from about the 8th century to the 11th. They mainly attacked the British Islands , the Frankish empire, England, but they also plundered places such as the Iberian peninsula and northern Africa. Vikings did not always settle into the places that they found, for instance after exploring North America they left the place never to return again. Even so, after landing on Greenland they colonized themselves there, and ancestors of the Vikings still live there today. So now that you know a little about the history of the Vikings lets go into detail about the specifics of the Viking age. (Peter Sawyer, Oxford Ill. History of the Viki ...

Television Depiction Of Family Life - 1,167 words
Over the past 50 years, the traditional structure of the family has evolved tremendously. The role of each member has changed in many ways. This creates an entirely different chemistry within the family. In the 1950s, the traditional family was composed of a father, mother, and the children that they created within the marriage. The father was usually the disciplinarian and financial provider for the family. The mothers job was to stay at home and raise the children while keeping the house in working order. It is now extremely common to see both parents working to support the family financially. Women are becoming more active in the workplace and some men are even staying home to take care o ...

Chapter Summarys of To Kill A Mockingbird Chapter 1: Scout's father, Atticus Finch, studied law in Montgomery while supporting his brother, John "Jack" Hale Finch, who was in medical school in Boston. His sister Alexandra is living at the Landing. Atticus began his law practice in Maycomb, the county seat of Maycomb County, where his office in the courthouse contained little more than a hat rack, a spittoon, and a checkerboard. His first case entailed his defense of two men who refused to plead guilty for second-degree murder. They instead pleaded not guilty for first-degree murder, and were hung, marking probably the beginning of my father's profound distaste for criminal law. Her father is ...

Thyroid Disorders - 1,318 words
According to the American Thyroid Association, millions of Americans (especially women) suffer from a thyroid disorder, and many of them dont even know it. In fact, thyroid disorders occur much more often than even many doctors realize. The butterfly-shaped thyroid is in the neck, its two wings wrapped around the windpipe just below the Adams apple. This vitally important gland normally weighs less than an ounce, but it can have an enormous impact on your health. Think of it as your bodys metabolism regulator. It does the job by releasing two hormones, most of which is the iodine-containing hormone thyroxine. The hormones help regulate your heartbeat, body temperature, the smooth working of ...

Wine - 821 words
"There is nothing more refreshing, overwhelming, or invigorating than a good glass of wine." My friend Jenn said that to me the other day as we sat there enjoying a bottle of merlot. Today I am going to talk to you about wine, its history, the different varieties, and how to make it, serve it, store it, drink it, and judge it. Since well before written history mankind has been enjoying wine. The first physical evidence of the existence of wine appears in the Neolithic period around roughly 5200 BC. Other early cultures to enjoy wine were the early dynasties of the Old Kingdom (about 2700 BC) in Egypt. Historians theorize that early bronze age trade brought the wild grape to the Nile delta.

The Prohibition did not achieve its goals. Instead, it added to the problems it was intended to solve. (Thorton, 15) On January 16, 1920, a popular American pastime was suddenly seized from the public, and labeled a crime. The 18th Amendment, known as the Voltstead Act, was put into effect and attempted to efficiently remove the importing, exporting, transporting, selling, and manufacturing of any liquor with an alcohol content exceeding 0.5%. The law was passed in order to reduce crimes such as domestic violence, rape, fighting, and automobile accidents. However, as the government failed in enforcing the ban, the Prohibition Act led to far more serious problems than it was intended to solve ...

What the significance of that is, we leave it to you, the viewer, to determine, but I do think you will agree that it is a good thing that we are talking together."
