Booker T Washington - 1,237 words
Booker T. Washington: Fighter for the Black Man Booker T. Washington was a man beyond words. His perseverance and will to work were well known throughout the United States. He rose from slavery, delivering speech after speech expressing his views on how to uplift America's view of the Negro. He felt that knowledge was power, not just knowledge of "books", but knowledge of agricultural and industrial trades. He felt that the Negro would rise to be an equal in American society through hard work. Washington founded a school on these principles, and it became the world's leader in agricultural and industrial education for the Negro.

Asias Sleeping Giants - 1,024 words
... y behind the United States, Japans economy differs from that of China due to the governments minimal role in the economy. In Japan, the resources are always distributed through private channels rather than through the government, as in the case of China (Pilat, 177). The government only plays a role in the economy by actually allocating public investment and by consulting with businesses. Japans mixed economic system is responsible for the rapid rate of economic growth, especially after WWII. Japan is one of the worlds largest producers of automobiles, steel and high-technology manufactured goods (Pilat, 153). Japan exports over 500 billion dollars a year worth of commodities in contrast ...

French Revolution - 477 words
The French Revolution was caused by a bad ruler and a bad economy. King Louis XVI and his wife Mary Antoinette taxed the poor people heavily and paid no attention to the country. During the early 1780s a big percent of annual budget went towards King Louis XVIs huge estate in Versailles. France also had no central bank, no paper currency, no ways of getting more money and an out dated tax system which only taxed the poor which had no money to begin with. The first signs of revolution appeared when the peasants stormed the fortress known as the Bastille looking for gun powder. The Bastille incident set off revolts all over France and Louis was deposed soon afterwards. King Louis XVI and Mary ...

Lasers And Their Applications - 1,995 words
Laser is an acronym for light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation. In the last century many types of lasers have been used for many different applications from welding to surgery to military and even many uses in every day life by harnessing the principles of light and stimulated emission. To understand how lasers work we must first understand the physics behind light waves. Light is emitted from a source and travels in straight lines and when it strikes an object is either absorbed, reflected, or refracted. Light behaves primarily like a wave and its this wave nature of light that allows lasers to work. Constructive interference is what amplifies light. Since light is a wave i ...

Executive Branch - 662 words
President Woodrow Wilson once said the President, ....is at liberty in law and conscience.... to be as big a man as he can., and some Presidents have at times tried to be more powerful and bigger than what the Founding Fathers had intended. I believe that it is virtually impossible to live up to what the Founding Fathers had intended and that there are only a few of our Presidents who have actually lived up to that statement. This can be looked at through the roles played be the President, the powers of the President, and limits that have been placed or attempted to be placed on the President. When the President is sworn in, he/she becomes the most powerful person in the nation and some have ...

... committed was omitting all these oppositions and unanswered questions about the connection between BSE and CJD and presented what he had as definitive proof. To the notion that CJD will become an epidemic worse than AIDS I must laugh. There has never been a case of BSE of CJD ever in the US, and even in the BSE Heyday 1997 there was only 12 reported cases of CJD that year. You have a higher rate of dieing walking down the streets then you do from CJD. Since then cases of BSE have been on a rapid decline, and now researchers and even the CJD surveillance group are questioning if the influx of CJD was due to the rise in the disease itself or caused by the improvements in diagnoses, techniq ...

Volution In A British Context - 1,980 words
Advanced Higher Modern Studies To what extent has devolution of power diluted the central control of the Cabinet and government within the British state.

Philippine Bureaucracy - 2,248 words
I. A POLITICAL SYSTEM DEFINES ITS BUREAUCRACY: That the Philippine government has consistently failed in satisfying the needs and growing expectations of the Filipino people is a fact rather than a perception. What is widely perceived however, is that such failure of government is only due to the inefficiency of its bureaucracy to produce and deliver public goods and services. To accept the perception that the inefficiency of the bureaucracy is the main culprit in the failu re of government is to grant the dichotomization of the orientation of governance and the administration of its affairs. The form and substance of the bureaucracy as the main machinery of government is heavily defined by ...
