Contemporary Society's Link To The Republican Fall In Rome - 297 words
Rome had an well-organized government that used monarchy, democracy, and aristocracy to make it balanced. However, the Republican government collapsed and modified the powers of the rich and poor. The citizens have the power to vote, add laws, and make changes by voting for their leader to do this for the people. When the government collapsed, the citizens didn't get these advantages and the rich came to power. The collapse of the government occurred because a variety of events. First, the people who fought for their country came back home with nothing not even their homes. Because the huge number of poor people, a new class called proletariat was made for the poor people. The wealthy became ...

U.s. Patriotism: A Link To American Hatred. Politics In The Media - 1,784 words
As Americans, we believe that world events over the next few years will unfold from September 11th. The safety and security that we all felt before will never be the same. While Americans continue to recover our enemies continue to plan a way to bring us to our knees once again. Many of us will never again be able to fly without a fear of what if and many of us will never again be able to turn on the morning news without the fear of what if. We tend to have the attitude that terrorist attacks are events that happen in other countries like Israel where peace is unsteady. Many of us never dreamed of having it in our own front yard and to compound those affects by seeing parts of the world cele ...

... put it clearly: America had it coming. The surprise is how a broad spectrum of the Canadian middle class, including academics, professionals and business people, is coming to the view that America needs, beyond any tactical strikes or smart bombs it might deploy, a more humane and even-handed approach to the world. (Siddiqui par. 32) Many terrorists do want to burn the U.S. and are willing to die for their beliefs. These suicidal anti-Americans will never be persuaded to change their minds. (Naim par. 15) Current and past U.S. foreign policy has yielded different results. During my college life I have been shocked and horrified by U.S. governmental actions, such as the U.S. sponsored cou ...

Hypertext And Derrida - I Link, Therefore I Am - 1,276 words
Discovering hypertext radically altered my perspective and perception of Jacques Derridas work. Derridas writing was not unfamiliar to me before this event but the texts were often difficult to read or ungraspable. I had read about resistance to Derridas honorary doctorate from Cambridge University in 1992, which provoked a strong response in me. I really wanted this man (whom I knew hardly anything about) to get his honorary doctorate and shove it right up the establishments derrire. I duly aligned myself (in a rather distorted form of identification) with the apparently disenfranchised and I have wanted to love this mans work ever since. Deconstruction as a concept was formally introduced ...

... described as the fiction of an origin Metaphysics the white mythology which resembles and reflects the culture of the West (Derrida 1982: 213). Derrida offers the term archia, which combines the notion of founding principles with, broadly speaking, the ideological values of a governing force (1997: xvi). Deconstruction uncovers the excess (ibid.) or the concealed and repressed elements that philosophy must hide in order to distinguish and perpetuate itself as philosophy (ibid.: x). Derridean deconstruction therefore destabilises foundationalist beliefs in systems of thought such as Authority, Order and Free-Will, by revealing that in order for culturally valued systems of meaning to be ...

I am in danger here of over-simplifying a political situation that has a complex history and digresses from my focus on Derrida but it seems relevant to this discussion of decentring, Derrida and hypertext. The relevance is connected to doubt about the centre, about absolute truth and boundaries between fiction (Rushdies book and Derridas autobiographical writing) and history (apostasy against Islam and Derridas account of his lived-experience).

I would argue that reconstruct-ion connects my understanding of hypertext to feminism and Derrida by reinterpreting the binary code 0 as the feminine, which is always bottom but not last. She is the base upon which the number 1 rests and she provides the trace that enables 1 (the masculine) to define himself in difference to the other. She is closer to God, I would argue, because she bridges the gap between positive and negative numbers between the abstract and the concrete. She is not the nothing that might invite a feminist critique of Derridas writing ...

Anti-depressants And Their Link To Adolescent And Teenage Suicide - 1,366 words
Abstract Two percent of preteens and five percent of adolescents suffer from depression (www.about-teen-depression.com 2004). There are specific signs and symptoms associated with depression, which are helpful in detection of the illness. There are various ways to treat depression, such as medication, group therapy, and/or herbal supplements. There are pros and cons with each treatment, but the worst coincides with the medication -suicide. Much research has been conducted, which will be discussed in the paper that has shown a link to antidepressants and suicide. However, there is also evidence that the suicide rate could be decreased with proper diagnosis and early, supervised treatment for ...

Anti-depressants And Their Link To Adolescent And Teenage Suicide - 1,333 words
... if you do decide to treat the child with antidepressants, which is by far the easiest mode of treatment, the child could still be at risk for self-harm due to the risk associated with antidepressant drugs and children. As a parent, this scenario is like tossing a one-sided coin, in that with or without treatment your child may be at risk of suicidal tendencies. Another concern is the dosage of antidepressants being given to children and adolescents. Currently, the lowest dosage for an antidepressant is 20mg per capsule (Feng 2002). This amount is sufficient enough for an adult with mild depression, but this dosage is also being administered to children. Is this dosage really appropriate ...

Hierarchical Traditions: Link Of Past With Future - 520 words
Eastern countries (and especially of the Asian-Pacific region) like Korea, China, and Indonesia are known worldwide for their unique and vivid cultures. But no other country attracts so much interest and admiration like Japan does. Indeed, the history and culture of this country affect the behavior and way of thinking of Japanese people in such a strong manner that Western people cannot stop being surprised. One of Japanese particularities is the ability of its people to honor the elderly, and obey the strict rules of seniority. The strong hierarchical structure of the country has been developed through the many centuries of its development. The country is located in such an interesting plac ...

The question has been raised: who is in control of curriculum in our school? Not just the choosing of the precise books, but who is in charge of the contents of the books that curriculum directors can choose from? Once the answers to these questions are found, what should be done if they point to one group? So many problems in the United States have arisen when the people discover that one group is violating the peoples rights in some way by not allowing others power, that it would be logical to conclude that it would be perceived by many to be unfair if it is found that one interest group chooses what all American children learn, especially if that interest group is furthering their own int ...

Moments after the assassination, terrible cruelty replaced the harmony. Rioting mobs in Watts, California pillaged, killed, and burned, leading to the death or injury of hundreds and millions of dollars in damage. Besides the Civil Rights movement, there was another important movement during the 1960s: the Student Movement. Youthful Americans were outraged by the intolerance of their universities, racial inequality, social injustice, and the Vietnam War. The Student Movement led to the hippy culture. This movemt marked another response to the decade as ...

When we discuss our brain, we usually focus on the brains ability to think. That task alone is extremely complex and involved, but the brain also has many other tasks. Most of the time the brain is on autopilot, meaning that most of the activities preformed are just automatic. Our five senses; sight, sound, touch, taste, and smell, are automatically preformed in our brains. We don't have to think about how something sounds, we just hear it and we then interpret that sound. The largest area of our brain is the area that is set aside for vision, it is located in the occipital lobe. Dr. Gerard Guarniero has been blind since birth, a defect in which he has never been able to fix. Recently, he ha ...

Colonialism - 1,934 words
Colonialism has often spread to areas where it is economically valuable for the colonizer to develop. South America was one of these places. First came the Spanish for gold, then for rubber. As colonization took place two cultures met, thinking they were opposites, but in reality they were very much connected to one another, their histories were now tied together. In considering the question of how Indians have developed their healing practices and spiritual beliefs as a reaction to colonization, there are a number of areas we must explore. First, we will discuss how Indian and white cultures have integrated one another to the point where certain beliefs coexist or blend together. Secondly, ...

Though M.C. Escher contended that he knew virtually nothing about mathematics, even having gone as far as to declare that he was absolutely innocent of training or knowledge in the exact sciences, (Schattschneider 67), his art work commonly incorporates the use of many recognized elements of science and mathematics. It has been argued that Eschers natural accessibility and his popularity with young art patrons is due to the Eschers use of symmetry, his use of metamorphosis, and his focus on representational elements of science in his work (Donato 31). Though Escher appeared unwilling to address it during his lifetime, it was evident that his work was supported by elements of science, includi ...

Its holdings include more than 150,000 works spanning the history of art from ancient times to the present. Moreover, the museum has seasonal exhibitions, which focus on many different types of artists every month. The variety of artwork fascinates visitors and never bores them. I am a frequent visitor of the museum, and, this time, I was enchanted by the sculpture Lady, which was created by Michael Lucero in 1999. The sculptures body simulates Roman or Greek statues, but there is no human-like head. Instead of creating the head, he randomly stacked ...

During my trip to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, I observed many interesting paintings, sculptures, and artifacts. The two exhibits I chose to do my report on were Anonymous Official, from the thirteenth dynasty in Egypt, (1783 B.C.), and Head from a Herm from the early Greek civilization, (first quarter of the fifth century). (The Metropolitan Museum of Art Guide, Howard, pg. 306) I chose these two particular exhibits because of their faces. The way the human face is portrayed is an excellent way to figure out how humans were perceived in these specific time periods. You can compare the two different faces from the two different time periods, and compare and contrast the two time periods. ...
