The Y2k Bug - 2,005 words
The year 2000 problem could have been completely prevented had some early people envisioned the degree to which the microprocessor would change our lives. Surely, no one would have thought that in the early days of ENIAC that everything from your alarm clock to your car would be computerized. Even the IT managers of the 80's could not be blamed: The disk space savings from dropping the two digits of the date over 100 Million Records would represent almost 200 Megabytes! Space requirements aside, overhead on search times and disk loading/access are also added. Surely one could have designed a system whereby the program would be aware of the century, regardless of the data records used. Hindsi ...

Floating Exchange Rates - 1,243 words
Floating Exchange Rates For some, the collapse of Mexico's economy proves that floating exchange rates and markets without capital controls are deadly. Others find the crash of the European exchange-rate mechanism (ERM) in 1993 to be proof that targeted rates will always be overturned by the free market. Many see the breakup of Bretton Woods as the failure of fixed rates. Yet others believe monetary unification in Europe is the only way to achieve economic and political stability. Many others hold still different beliefs. There are, however, four main proposals for the management of international currency exchange rates: monetary unification, fixed rates, floating rates maintained within cer ...

Schooling in Japan emphasizes diligence, self-criticism and well organized study habits. The belief is ingrained in children that hard work and perseverance will yield success in life.

The Crotesque Machinery Of Dubliners - 1,627 words
The Grotesque Machinery of the Dubliners Joyce describes the spiritual poverty of the people of Dublin in the industrial age, with powerful images of mechanized humans and animated machines. In "After the Race" and "Counterparts" he delineates characters with appropriate portraits of human automation. Machines seize human attributes and vitality in opposition to the vacuous citizens of Ireland's capitalist city. Joyce's use of metaphorical language brings to life the despair of his country. In Winesburg, Ohio, Sherwood Anderson writes an allegorical account of the failure of mankind (1919). Although Anderson depicts rural life in the "New World," his understanding of human nature and descrip ...

A Brief History Of Costa Rica - 1,165 words
Human habitation can be traced back more than 10,000 years but it appears Costa Rica was sparsely populated and a relative backwater in the pre-Columbian era. There is little sign of major communities and none of the impressive stone architecture that characterized the more advanced civilizations of Mesoamerica to the north and the Andes to the south. When Columbus arrived near Limn on September 18, 1502 on his third and last voyage to the Americas, there were probably no more than 20,000 indigenous inhabitants They lived in several autonomous tribes, all with distinct cultures and customs. Costa Rica's only major archaeological site is at Guayabo, 30 miles east of San Jos, where an ancient ...

The Marxist approach is a classical critique of Western political thought. It postulated that the capitalist society was divided into two great classes: Bourgeoisie and Proletariat , where the interests of the working class (Proletariat) was controlled by economically powerful ruling class (Bourgeoisie). As the law forms a part of the superstructure that reflects the economic base in society, Engels argued that the position of women in society had been determined by the changing structure of marriage which itself is determined by economic fo ...

Economic development in post-modern societies provides a relative level of affluence and security so young people focus increasingly on the meaning and purpose of life, self-expression, and subjective well-being. Issues are being championed on the basis of personal identity politics rather than on broader political party affiliations or fixed alliances. The direct challenging of elites is a style of political activity that fits well with a post-materialist generation suspicious of electoral politics. As such, the outlook of youth activists can vary greatly from older activists in the anti-sweatshop movement, many of whom are involved with traditional fo ...

Assimilation Copyright - 1,775 words
Civilization, the thing that makes humans different from the other animals on this planet, is the ability to pass knowledge down from generation to generation with each successive generation building on the knowledge of all generations that came before. It is this human knowledgebase which has allowed us to progress to the point we are at today and it is this knowledgebase that is now under attack, an attack that threatens the very roots of civilization. In 1790 George Washington signed into law Copyright Act of 1790, which granted a temporary monopoly on the knowledge to authors, and inventors of that knowledge with a limitation of 28 years. The reason for this temporary monopoly was to all ...
