Life And Legend Of Howard Hughes - 1,970 words
The Life and Legend of Howard Hughes Throughout the 20th century, it has been the media's job to pinpoint what events and people would prove to be an effective story. This was certainly the case for Howard R. Hughes. Son to the wealthy Howard Hughes Sr., Howard became the interest of the American people and newspapers for most of his life. Being deemed one of the most famous men of the mid-20th century was greatly attributed to Hughes's skills as an industrialist, aviator, and motion-picture producer combined with his enormous wealth, intellect, and achievement. The media thrived on Howard's unusual and sometimes scandalous life, especially in his later years when newspapers would frequently ...

Binge Crinking Is A Problem - 909 words
From one generation to the next, we have seemingly continued this ridiculous practice of "binge drinking". Sure, let's all see who can drink the most, who passes out first, and let's not forget throwing-up? Yes, you haven't experienced the true effects of binge drinking until you've thrown-up all over yourself. But why, why is it that today's generation feels that this is fun? Risking your life to fit in isn't fun. Fun is going to an amusement park or even a baseball game. Unfortunately, college campuses across the nation are preoccupied by this issue of alcohol abuse. Binge drinking in the U.S. is out of control and mostly a problem that our government has produced. It is a byproduct of leg ...

Phones - 1,883 words
BOSTON A driver chatting into a cell phone as the car whizzes down the road is becoming a more common sight in this age of telecommunications. State legislators and federal officials agree that the use of cellular telephones while driving poses a distraction which may lead to car accidents. But they acknowledge that little is being done to address the issue. "Anything that takes your eyes off the road is a hazard," state Rep. Reed Hillman, R-Sturbridge, said. But Hillman, former head of the Massachusetts State Police, points out that there doesn't seem to be an appetite on Beacon Hill for any bill that would ban cell phone use by drivers. Currently, there is no legislation pending before th ...

Cars that go 5,000 miles between fill-ups, electric power plants you buy like appliances, a world with radically reduced pollution, and a better standard of living... Sounds like a sci-fi pipe dream - if it weren't for all these automobile and power companies spending billions to make it real.by Jacques LeslieI'm at the headquarters of Ballard Power Systems in Burnaby, a suburb of Vancouver, and my big fuel cell moment is about to occur. Following the example of the premier of British Columbia, the mayor of Chicago, and the chair of the Los Angeles Metropolitan Transit Authority, I am going to drink the exhaust from Ballard's prototype fuel cell municipal bus. This is less foolhardy than it ...

... antage of girls when they're drunk." - Anonymous Respondent (College Alcohol Study Harvard School of Public Health) College administrators often identify student alcohol abuse as one of the biggest challenges they face. Yet, funding for prevention programs, on the increase until 1994, has never averaged more than a few dollars per student, not counting staff salaries. Experts complain that many alcohol education programs seldom involve more than a few posters, some brochures, and an Alcohol Awareness Week, all of which students say are largely ignored. Bill DeJong, director of the Higher Education Center for Alcohol and Other Drug Prevention in Boston, thinks colleges have to change the ...

Should The Firearm Makers Be More Responsible To The Society? - 1,339 words
Should The Firearm Makers Be More Responsible To The Society? Ethics are principles governing the behavior of an individual or a group. These principles establish appropriate behavior indicating what is right and what is wrong. Defining the term is easy, but determining what the principles are is difficult. What is ethical can vary form one to another, from industry to industry, and from country to country. In the play V All My Sons, it is an unethical decision that Joe Keller sold the broken airplanes cylinder heads to the military during World War II. One main reason was that he did not want to let the business fall behind in the industry. However, it eventually led to the death of those p ...

Argument Against Lowering The Legal Drinking Age - 737 words
It is estimated that underage drinking costs the US $58 billion each year in accidents, crime and hospitalizations. An estimated one-third of Americans abstain from drinking alcohol or liquor. The number of college binge drinkers in the 1999 Harvard study (44 percent) was the same as in the 1993 study. In the Harvard study, 0.6 percent of respondents required medical attention for alcohol overdoses. This could equal 30,000 such instances a year when applying the number to the nation's entire collegiate population. On September 13, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology reached a $4.75 million legal settlement with the parents of a student who died from an alcohol overdose in 1997. Scott K ...
