Gandhi - 779 words
Mohunduras Ghandi: His Vital Role in India's Independence Mohunduras Ghandi was a man that the world thought could never exist. He believed strongly in all things that were good, and to him, there were no two ways about it. Leading the Indian people spiritually and morally, he inspired them to fight for Home Rule in which they achieved. He gave them courage to fight against Britain, and to work along side of the Muslims. The Congress, supported by Gandhi, and the Muslim League were opposites but Gandhi insisted that they work along side each other. He tried, and to an extent they did, but the end result was an independent Pakistan for the Muslim League, and an independent India for the Congr ...

Becoming A Man - 522 words
A Day No Pigs Would Die is a story that Robert Peck wrote to show the reader his adolescent life, fate, and the journey from boyhood to manhood. Peck leads the reader through the intricate web of his youth, almost as though he were a stitching needle. The author makes sure not to miss a single stomach pumping detail, leaving the reader, well, not quite wanting more. As a young Shaker boy, Robert lived with his mother Lucy, father Haven, and his aunt carrie. The novel begins with a vivid scene in which he helps bring a calf into the world up on the ridge above their farm.

Trancendentalist Ideas - 527 words
The great transcendentalist had ideas and thoughts that were, at the time, thought to be crazy. Both Emerson and Thoreau focused on not being a follower and doing wheat you believe is right. Self-Reliance, Civil Disobedience, Walden, and The Night Thoreau Spent in Jail all show this idea, which all transcendentalists had at that time. Self-Reliance by Waldo Emerson shows many ideas of the transcendentalist however two ideas seem emphasized. Right away he says people should not be followers. envy is ignorance; that imitation is suicide(Emerson 366). Also he says people should do what they think is right. Trust thyself, every heart vibrates to that iron string(Emerson 366). Civil Disobedience ...

Impresario - 413 words
It is a beautiful feeling to start an exciting journey like I am. The time is April of 1836 and I am a 32-year-old farmer. Like many of my fellow Americans I'm moving westward with my family and few wagons full of friends. My good friend Gunther tells me that the "Age of Jackson" is over and it's our destiny as a nation to expand. I must say this change is very exciting. Only I doubt that our group can go on very long without civilization's control. I predict that come winter, stealing from one another will be inevitable. But that problem is nothing to worry about right now. I am more occupied with thinking about what I'm going to plant when we reach our destination, the Oregan Trail. My son ...

The Nature Of Government - 841 words
John Locke, an influential early liberal English philosopher, and Jean-Jacques Rousseau, a brilliant political theorist and one of the main figures of the enlightenment, have a considerable importance in political thought, for which they are best known. The Second Treatise of Government by John Locke places sovereignty into the hands of people. Locke imagined an original state of nature in which individuals rely upon their own strength. His argument is that people are equal and invested with natural rights in a state of nature in which they live free from inside and outside rule. The state of nature has a base on the law of everyone being equal and independent. However, though this be a stat ...

... means, and the organization for militant mass-resistance. Expressing an any-means-necessary mind set, Stokely Carmichael proclaims, Were going to organize our way. The question is how were going to facilitate those matters, whether its going to be done with a thousand police men and submachine guns, or whether its going to be in a context where its allowed by white people. (41) Regardless of the means, RAGE will be heard. As Carmichael points out, white resistance, in most cases, will determine where and to what extent rage will lead. The struggle for social power between white and black America was brought to a head during the Civil Rights Era. Williams explains, The oppressors heart i ...

Raisin In The Sun - 907 words
Lorraine Hansberry's, A Raisin in the Sun, is an incredible play that portrays the hardships of a black family living in poverty. I enjoyed the age range of perspective in each of the characters the book. Along with showing the poverty issue, it also displayed a changing of the times as certain things were being discussed in the Younger family. Leena Younger (Momma) was the authoritative presence among everyone in the old apartment. She lived through more hardships than any of her children as she states... " In my time we was worried about not being lynched and getting to the North if we could and how to stay alive and still have a pinch of dignity too." This was her time, living through sla ...

Rosa - 1,237 words
Miss Catherine, oh, Miss Catherine, I love this one. Its definitely my favorite of all your Rosa was very pretty really. She stood dressed in Catherines white traveling wear. The dress with blue piping around the collar. Her dark skin looked bright and vibrant beside the white twill. Oh, Rosa, you have to put on the hat, too! It looks even better with the hat.

Child Labour In The World Today - 1,018 words
Many wrong situations are happening in the world today. Some we may know of and others we may not. The reason that we do not know of some of these situations is because they are happening clear across the globe. Many are happening in third world countries in Asia and Africa. One of the wrong doings that stands out is child labour. This stands out because making children work for ten or more hours a day with very little food is not morally correct. What kind of people would do such a thing, but just sitting here and reading about it and thinking, That is just wrong, is not going to change anything. So despite all the wrong some people manage to make a difference. Child labour is a real proble ...

Why Shouldn't The U.s. Intervene In Kosova? - 1,647 words
My response to Patrick Buchanan's article from the NY Post. After reading an article in the October 3rd edition of the New York Post by Patrick J. Buchanan entitled "Why is Kosovo Our War?", I was very frustrated when he asked "Why does Serbia not have a right to send its army to prevent the cradle of that country from being ripped away?" Serbia was the one that ripped Kosova away from the Albanians after Serbian leaders and Milosevic stripped Kosova of it's autonomy in 1989 and began it's widespread policy of ethnic cleansing, mass murder and rape. And before Mr. Patrick Buchanan starts comparing the situation in Kosova to how some states seceded during the civil war, he should be aware of ...

Three Rings Of Cruelty - 1,040 words
... include, ankuses or bullhooks, whips, rope, electrical shock, sticks, muzzles, metal pipes, baseball bats, chains, axe handles and firearms. Trainers justify the use of these by saying the animals wont perform if they dont learn whos boss. Once the animal has been beaten into submission, it will do what it is told to do for fear of being severely punished. The worst tool is arguably the ankus or bullhook. The bullhook is a stick with a sharp staff-like hook at its end. Trainers have been known to jab the sharp end into elephants tender skin located in the mouth and behind the ears repeatedly for minor mistakes in performance. The flat end of the bullhook is used like a bat, swung at the ...

The Four Fundamental Freedoms Of The Charter Of Rights And Freedoms Of Canada - 1,272 words
Ignorance, pride, hatred and a disregard for the wellbeing of others in society. These are the seeds allowing the roots of activities promoting racial discrimination to sprout. Out of that, comes the growth of a fearful social epidemic, in which uneducated persons put their destructive thoughts and viewpoints into action. These criminal activities have been dubbed Hate Crimes and have plagues society as far back as one can remember. Hate Crimes, in varying degrees, can consist of something as minute as a derogatory comment, to something as serious as an act of murder. The common thread is that the offence was committed because of the victims ethnicity or race. Hate Crimes violate the human r ...

Christmas List Of An Atheist - 413 words
AGAIN, we celebrate the "birth" of your child in the manger of an inn (with all your power, couldn't you have done a little better in selecting a birthplace?). Again, we celebrate the rise and triumph of commercialism, hanging $9.95 decorations on a $249.95 tree. And again, we pay tribute to empty pockets and devastated bank accounts. Amen. Forgive me for my atheism dear Mr. Christian God, as I celebrate the endless preaching of your preachers on this glorious day (for just how many homosexuals would live free and how many fetuses would feel safe without them?). I hope that in your total/partial wisdom you will hear my Christmas wishes on this O so majestic holiday. Since Santa Claus died ye ...

Analysis And Context Of Bob Marley's Lyrics - 1,788 words
A lifetime of inspiration and struggle is depicted through a poster I acquired not to long ago. The portrait is Bob Marley. The image is freedom. This sense of freedom can be, and is, achieved through his music, powered by his music, and inspired by his music as it relates to the social injustices in early white imperialism. An illusion of the creation of a human life is being meshed together in this distinct piece of work. It is a portrait of an artist fighting solely for freedom using the power of music as his weapon. The tiny pictures that make up this portrait are in both color and black and white and together show inspiring details from the life of Robert Nesta Marley. Masses of colorfu ...

Heart Cell Regeneration - 1,129 words
Italian and American Researchers demonstrated last year that heart muscle cells multiply after a heart attck, and now they have evidence that primitive cells travel to the new heart in a transplant patient and grow new muscle and blood vessels. The evidence comes from male transplant patients that received hearts from women; when male cells were discovered in the donated female hearts. This is the first evidence in humans that human hearts can regenerate. The regeneration is possible through stem cell-like primitive cells, which are master cells that can transform themselves into many types of tissue. The findings can possibly be used in the future to help patients with weak hearts recover. ...
