Dexter Greene - 477 words
A man can say a lot through his face. For the human race, facial expressions are perhaps the most expressive and universal communication we can use. One does not usually notice the facial expressions of animals, but there is a look. A look you notice in the eyes of two alley cats as they fight over the most generous trash cans. And the look that flashes across the face of the buck just as it turns its head and its eyes focus on the pursuer, to be pursued no more. I would imagine this same look on the face of Frederick Douglas as he lived in a strange nation within his own country, and was the constant prey of many. The panic and hopelessness of the hunted animal belonged to Douglas during hi ...

Shopping With A Social Conscience The Business Practices Of Nike - 1,313 words
Do most consumers shop with a social conscience? (Think about it. Are you aware of where the products you purchase are made and under what conditions they are manufactured?) When consumers buy products, without knowledge of their origins, they could easily be breaching their own code of ethics. This is clearly seen in an assortment of industries. Each year hundreds of companies employ foreign labor for low wages and in terrible working conditions. For example, much public attention had been brought to Kathy Lee Gifford and her sweatshops overseas, as well as other unfair labor practices in third world countries. One of the greatest participants in this mistreatment of workers is the Nike Cor ...

A Historiography Of - 2,564 words
The tales of the Arthurian legend are some of the most popular from medieval times, and the reason for this is primarily due to their fabulous nature.

The Lost Years 15861592 - 3,032 words
There is no documentary record of Shakespeare's activities from the birth of the twins, in 1585 until Robert Greene's complaint about him as an "upstart crow" in 1592. Biographers have therefore called these the lost years. In fact, there is nothing certain known about him from his birth in 1564 until 1592 except that he was married in 1582, fathered Susanna in 1583 and the twins Judith and Hamnet in 1585, and probably attended Stratford Grammar School. The lack of details has not stopped authors from inventing tales as to how Shakespeare got from Stratford, a young husband needing a way to support his growing family, to London as the man to be reckoned with in the entertainment business.
