War solves problems, but the wastefulness of war can only be felt by the peoples families, friends, and of course, the person in the trenches. Hundreds, and sometimes thousands, dying at the hands of other war soldiers whose only purpose is to kill. Bloodshed all over the world because of greed and the human lust for power and fame.

War Bonds - 655 words
War bonds are money that you give the government to finance wars in exchange for a certificate that entitles you to a larger sum of money in the future for their generosity. There were many ways that were used to advertise war bonds. The United States didnt want only the civilians to buy war bonds, they also wanted and advertised to the soldiers in the United States. The military issued a series of five cards encouraging the purchase of war bonds. These cards were given to soldiers that fought in the fields and those soldiers who lived in military camps in the United States. There were ads for the civilians to buy war bonds as well. The civilian ad campaigns were carried out by the Treasury ...

Macro - 700 words
Arizona Baseball Is Losing More Than Fans What was once one of the most promising expansion franchises in Major League Baseball (MLB) is now on the verge of losing more money than any other team in baseball this year. There are many factors that are making this happen and some can be linked to macroeconomics. The Diamondback's were 1 of 4 teams added to the league in the past decade. While a seemingly small number it actually constitutes a flooding of the market. The team's first year average attendance is down more then 8,000. Yet in the face of decreasing ticket sales the team has gone on a spending spree signing on free agents and bloating its payroll to one of the highest in baseball. Th ...

The Overnight Sensation - 1,139 words
The book, How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie provided a way for people to motivate themselves and enter the work force after the Great Depression. As an enlightened individual and business man of the time, Mr. Carnegie created a book that, "touched a nerve and filled a human need that was more than a faddish phenomenon of post-Depression days, as evidenced by its continued and uninterrupted sales into the eighties, almost half a century later," (Carnegie 13). The peoples' low morals and lost hope during and after the Depression made Dale Carnegie's book, How to Win Friends and Influence People, an "overnight sensation." As stated by "Overview of Great Depression," it is ...

Capital Punishment - 1,535 words
This page aims to discuss capital punishment as rationally as possible. I propose to present information which may help people make up their minds about whether or not capital punishment keeps them safe, makes economic sense, or provides a satisfactory "closure" for the victims of homicide. How, if at all, this information affects your response, either emotional or political, to capital punishment remains entirely up to you. The questions of fact concerning capital punishment fall into three general areas: does capital punishment , freeing social resources for better purposes than warehousing and feeding murders, or does it actually cost more, consuming resources that could go into preventin ...

Power originates in the individual; authority originates in the charter of the organization. Thus, there is no such thing as "position power." Power can be exerted anywhere, whereas authority is limited by position. (I can tell my team member what to do, but I cannot tell your team member what to do.) Finally, although one's power cannot be affected by anyone else, one's authority can be increased or decreased by someone who holds a position of higher authority. Leadership. Leadership can be defined as the art of ...

Role Models - 495 words
Who are the Role Models of Today? Who are the role models of today? It seems as though the culture of today has the tendency to mistake who a role model is rather then what a role model should be. How, then, is a role model defined? A role model is a person in our lives that give us inspiration, hope and keep our spirits up. Roles models help us in our difficult times that we may have, by giving us words of wisdom that will help us get through our difficult times. We might wonder if we really need these role models in our lives? For instance, if we didnt have role models in our lives would we be able to over come our difficult times. Yes, we might be able to but would we have the extra encou ...

Malcolm X - 740 words
Hero is defined as many things. One is a mythological or legendary figure often of divine descent endowed with great strength or ability. A hero could also be a man admired for his achievements and noble qualities. A hero is a person that shows great courage and is an object of extreme admiration and devotion. When people think of a hero, they usually think of a strong and big man like Superman and Batman. Their whole life is dedicated to saving lives and helping people. To me someone who helps save lives is a hero, but there is also another type of hero. It can be someone who stands up for their rights and tries to change something that many people think could never be changed. Malcolm X is ...

Television And Society - 981 words
The commercial use of television began in 1946 and has continued to grow through the rest of the century. Television has changed how society spends its leisure time; how it feels about politics, how much people read, how its children are raised and how its culture is expressed (S5 p.701). The power that television has to influence people in various ways lies mainly in the fact that people spend a lot of time watching it (S7 p.8). So one can see why the type of programming being shown is so very important to society. Television has frequently been blamed as being the breeding grounds for all types of social ills (S7 p.71). The introduction of television has coincided with rises in crime and i ...

... to respect each other. Inside the cult, families are separated also. Families pose a threat to the leaders because they represent attachments and loyalties that challenge the leaders supremacy (Appel 106). One way to break up families is to break up marriages. In some cults couples are pressured to enter sexual relationships with other members encouraged by the leader. Some cults require members to play sexual musical chair and use orgies to break down inhibitions (Appel 110). In other cults sexual relationships are repressed. Sex is seen as sinful. Many couples are separated into one gender sleeping areas. This is one of the central ways to weaken a marriage. Ties between children and t ...

Media - 1,262 words
I believe that through media, societys viewpoints are swayed easily without critically thinking about the issues.

Music Censorship - 1,284 words
Healthy debates have been caused by today's music. Generally, foul language has rapidly increased within modern popular song lyrics, especially among rap and heavy metal artists' songs. An increase in explicit violence and misogyny in popular music lyrics has been recorded. These lyrics have been judged to be inspirations for violent, suicidal, and criminal acts. For example, Mr. Raymond Kuntz referred to his son's incident. ''When his wife went to wake their son for school, they found him dead of a gunshot wound, still wearing his headphones with Marilyn Manson's Anti-Christ Superstar CD still in the player. The boy's favorite song was ''The Reflecting God (Nina Crowley, ''Senate Hearings o ...

The Role Of The Inspector In 'an Inspector Calls.' - 2,393 words
Discuss the role of the Inspector in the play. How does Priestley use him? Comment on the way the Inspector varies his treatment of the characters. An Inspector Calls is a play with many social and political messages. J. B. Priestley believed a great deal in socialism and he used several of his plays to try and influence people to be Socialist as well. It was written in a time when Britain was ruled by a Labour government and socialist policies were seen as the way forward. It was a popular way of thinking at that time so Priestley's aim for the play was probably to teach the unconvinced. The Inspector in J. B. Priestley's 'An Inspector Calls' is one of the most thought-provoking and mysteri ...

The Hypodermic-syringe Model - 821 words
The hypodermic syringe model suggest that the media is alike a magic bullet and when an audience is targeted it will immediately be knocked down when they are hit. The hypodermic-syringe model also suggests that society is passive and the media inject their media influence into society and manipulates it. The Frankfurt school envisioned the media as a hypodermic syringe, and the contents of the media were injected into the thoughts of the audience, who accepted the attitudes, opinions and beliefs expressed by the media without question. This model was a response to the German fascists use of film and radio for propaganda, and later applied to American capitalist society. The followers of the ...
