Amish Culture - 1,941 words
The past five weeks in my life have really had an impact on me. In such a short period of time, I have become more aware of the different cultures that exist around the world today. We tend to think that our way of life is the only way there is, or at least the only right way. It is really very ignorant to think that everyone believes and behaves the same way. People should stop being so self-centered and take notice and interest in cultural diversity. There are numerous different cultures in our country alone. One in particular is the Amish culture, which I would like to familiarize you with. The Amish culture consists of many unique beliefs that makes their ways unlike that of any other cu ...

Colored People - 1,563 words
Integration was a main theme or topic in this memoir. It played an important role in the time when Gates was growing up and had a big affect on him throughout his book. Integration changed the way Gates viewed, whites, blacks, restaurants, hairstyles, church, school, etc. He went from a conformist to a rebel to an Episcopal. His community changed with him and the older generation of course did not take to integration as well as most of the younger generation did. Integration was considered a good thing to most people and others believed that Blacks had lost something through the whole ordeal. They believed that they had lost the close knit family ties that segregation indirectly created. Gat ...

The Battle In Seattle - 1,528 words
... of town." Which is to say, there is no Richard J. Daley in Seattle, and the blue meanies of the Chicago police -- who happily walloped passers-by in their pursuit of demonstrators -- have been supplanted here by a force that hasn't walloped even violent demonstrators for fear of offending the peaceful ones. In all the news coverage on Seattle TV Tuesday night, there was just one shot of a gun being pulled -- not by a cop or a demonstrator, but by a WTO delegate frustrated by his inability to get to the hall. One of the dignitaries who couldn't get into the WTO's opening ceremonies was the featured speaker -- Secretary of State Madeleine Albright. It was the second of two disasters to bef ...

Elte Save Face - 858 words
ELTE - a prestigious and promising word indeed, but only for people with an external viewpoint. Those who get a chance to have a look from the inside would think twice before saying that ELTE is 'prestigious' or 'promising'. The institution behind the word, 'ELTE' is losing its prestigious nature due to such factors as the slowness of student administration, the infeasibility of the curricula or the state of the copying facilities. The balance between the offers on part of the university and the realisation of these offers is lost and with it the prestige of the university is going up in smoke. We can obviously consider the Registrar's Department the heart of the administrational system, as ...

These examples definitely apply to the ordeal concerning the distribution of city contracts to minorities. I believe that ALL of Chicagos pub ...

Also, the tides had to be just right and the weather had to cooperate with the invasion. In June, only the 5th, 6th, and 7th days had both the right phase of the moon and the right tides at the right hours. But on Saturday, the 3rd, the weather was bad and the forecast was discouraging. By Sunday it was clear that Monday, the 5th, would be hopeless. The prediction was for weather so bad that the air forces wouldn't be able to deliver their all-important bombardment.

The Taliban today rejected U.S. claims that suspected terrorist Osama bin Laden is planning attacks from Afghanistan and urged the United States to ``resolve this issue rationally.'' ``Bin Laden doesn't even have an access to a telephone or fax,'' Sayed Mohammed Haqqani, the Taliban's ambassador to Pakistan, told a news conference. ``He is just a guest. He cannot act against anyone.'' The Taliban had said earlier that they had taken bin Laden's phone and fax machine. In a letter last week, the United States warned the Taliban that it would hold the ruling orthodox militia responsible for a terrorist attack against its interests anywhere in the world. The warning followed the arrest in Jordan ...

The Supreme Court System - 1,427 words
The justices determine which cases to take. They never explain the reason for their choices. Whether or not a case is accepted "strikes me as a rather subjective decision, made up in part of intuition and in part of legal judgment," Rehnquist wrote in "The Supreme Court: How It Was, How It Is," his 1987 book about the court. Important factors, he said, are whether the legal question has been decided differently by two lower courts and needs resolution by the high court, whether a lower-court decision conflicts with an existing Supreme Court ruling and whether the issue could have significance beyond the two parties in the case. For example, the justices likely accepted the sexual-harassment ...

Causes Of The Stock Market Crash - 875 words
It has been said that all good things must come to an end. In the case of the Roaring Twenties that end came abruptly and unexpectedly. It is easy for one to look back upon the economic situation that lead to the crash and ridicule the experts for not seeing the signs of a potential disaster. But it was not so easy for them to see such a crash coming. The 1920's were a booming decade and stock prices looked to be at a steady climb for a seemingly eternal rise. Many factors can be attributed to the cause of the crash but no one factor can be singled out as the solitary cause. The major causes of the stock market crash of 1929 were the uneven distribution of wealth, excessive practice of buyin ...

Discrimination Against German And Irish Immigrants - 1,459 words
The Declaration of Independence states, All men are created equal,, but, taking a look at our nations history, we can clearly see that this statement is not valid. This was not accepted by the thousands of slave owners based in the South and the people who enforced oppression upon womens rights as equals. The nation's relatively newly-established independence, escalating prejudices against blacks, differing viewpoints regarding slavery, monetary inflation, and antagonism to womens basic rights created an uncomfortable, unstable time for minorities and a colorful history for our nation. During the Revolutionary War, people from diverse backgrounds and religions fought for freedom, liberty, an ...

Missile Crisis - 1,457 words
The Cold War produced many confrontations between the U.S. and the Soviet Union. Korea and Vietnam were confrontations between the superpowers in an indirect way because each was supporting a country. Not until 1962 did they really come face to face with one another. The 1962 Cuban Missile Crises, although over Cuba, pitted the U.S. directly against Russia. The decisions between October 14 and 17, 1962 could easily have started WWIII or everyones fear at the time, nuclear war. But, calmer heads prevailed while both powers were able to claim victory. The road to this crises began back in the 1930s. The U.S. had economic and political interest in Cuba, thus not allowing a government to take co ...
