City - 1,332 words
Cities exist for many reasons and the diversity of urban form and function can be traced to the complex roles that cities perform. Cities serve as centers of storage, commerce, and industry. The agricultural surplus from the surrounding country hinterland is processed and distributed within the city. Urban areas have also developed around marketplaces, where imported goods from distant places could be exchanged for the local products. Throughout history, cities have been founded at the intersections of transportation routes, or at points where market goods must shift from one mode of transportation to another such as river or ocean ports as well as railways. Cities are also sites of enormous ...

Ring Lardners Haircut Analysis - 2,186 words
No one would have believed in the last years of the nineteenth century that this world was being watched keenly and closely by intelligence greater than man's and yet as mortal as his own; that as men busied themselves about their various concerns they were scrutinized and studied, perhaps almost as narrowly as a man with a microscope might scrutinize the transient creatures that swarm and multiply in a drop of water. --H.G. WELLS, The War of the Worlds Analysis is a delicate task, for if we agree that the whole is likely to be greater than the sum of its parts and that we cannot always know the dancer from the dance, we will want to avoid any mechanical "taking apart" of a work for fear of ...

A Current Look At Japans Financial And Political Risk - 987 words
... s most powerful banks, also Japanese. The term Mof-tan combines the ministrys acronym with part of the Japanese word tanto, meaning person in charge. If the banks of Japan were able to persuade the person in charge they then would have the ability to change the rules of the game in which they play, and without a doubt these adjustments would work in their favor. This type of scandalous action would not only create an unleveled playing field but eliminated the Japanese method of monitoring and obtaining information about the validity and integrity of Japanese banking policies. The only answer to the problem would be to eliminate the Mof-tan and create a new way to gather information about ...

Metacognitive Essay - 728 words
Going into British Literature and Composition, I had no idea what to expect. I thought all I would be doing was writing essays, indeed there was allot of essay writing, but there were many other key skills that I learned. Which included critical reading, collaboration with my peers to achieve a common goal, and understanding the connection between British history and literature. One very important skill that I learned during the class was critical reading, thinking, and writing. Before I started British literature and composition I had limited critical reading, thinking, and writing skills. It was very hard for me to read a piece of literature and then write a critical essay on it. For examp ...

Donconstructionthe Secret Sharer - 1,126 words
Deconstruction is a post-structural school of philosophy and literary criticism that was developed by French philosopher Jacques Derrida. Although he is credited with its origins, he seems to have borrowed heavily from German philosophers, Friedrich Neitzsche and Martin Heidegger, who radically questioned the validity of basic philosophical concepts and Chinese philosopher, Lao Tse who embraced the harmony of opposites. In one of his short texts Tse wrote: Therefore having and not having arise together. Difficult and easy complement each other. Voices and sound harmonize each other. Therefore the sage goes about doing nothing, The ten thousand things rise and fall without cease, Many consid ...

Peoples Of Alaska And Their Eskimo Culture - 4,810 words
Alaska is still the last frontier in the minds of many Americans. Interest in the "Great Land" has increased sharply since Alaska The Native became a full fledged state in January o f 1959. In spite of this great interest, many Americans know very little of the Eskimos, Indians and Aleuts (Al-ee-oots) who live in the remote regions. At the time Alaska was discovered in 1741 by Vitus Bering, Alaska Natives populated all parts of Alaska including the Bering Strait Region. Although there is still some disagreement among anthropologists concerning the origin of the American Indians and Eskimos, the great majority believe that these people migrated across the Bering Strait from Asia. Apparently t ...

The Pardoners Tale Deception And Foolishness - 1,284 words
The Pardoner's Tale: Deception and Foolishness There are several types of foolishness being described in the Pardoner's Tale itself. He describes gluttony in general, then specifically wine. He talks of gambling, taking bets and the like, and of swearing. The beginning of his tale describes three fools who go foolishly seeking death, then find it in a large amount of gold. Deception is another topic addressed by the Pardoner. He comes right out and says he is a con artist, and that he is out to take people's money. In his tale, deception by the rioters leads to the death of all three. These are good points, but there is another deception the Pardoner plays, and gets caught. His tale is a dir ...

How Athen Took Over Leadership Of Sparta After The Persian Wars - 1,482 words
HOW ATHENS TOOK OVER LEADERSHIP OF SPARTA AFTER THE PERSIAN WARS During the period of Greek history from the last years of the Persian Wars till the beginning of the First Peloponnesian War, the primacy of Sparta declined whileAthens was gaining increased influence in Greece. The Athenian, Thucydides (460-400 BC), one among few contemporary historians, left behind the most creditable records about this period. Although he did not give enough documentation for many events he described, his Histories remained the main resource of the facts from that time. In consideration of the fact that he was an Athenian and a participant of the Athenian army, future historians could not entirely count upon ...

He realised that great reforms were essential if he intended to remain the King of Macedonia. Macedonia underwent a major reconstruction at the hands of Philip but it ...

Prisoners At Work - 942 words
Currently at least 36 states have industries which are operating within prison walls and employ inmates. Why have prisoners at work? There are four main reasons for putting inmates to work: 1) to raise revenue through the selling of goods and services made and provided by the inmates themselves; 2) to increase punishment (no more sitting around and loafing in prison all day); 3) to rehabilitate by instilling work ethics and skills that will help the inmate in the future); and 4) to better manage the population by giving the inmates something productive to do, keeps them busy.

The filtered cigarettes were believed to be healthier and reduce the chance of developing cancer. Since then, more companies have introduced their own version of a healthier cigarette. Tobacco companies introduced such innovations as light and ultra light cigarettes. Light cigarettes are made with less tar; ultra lights have almost no tar in them. The concept of light cigarettes opens up the field of opportunity for smokers. They can now be more health conscious when choosing a cigarette, but light cigarettes can still cause cancer. ...

Makah Indians And Whaling - 1,242 words
The Makah Indian Whaling: Indigenous Right or For hundreds of centuries, the Makah Indians have revolved their culture and traditions around whaling. It has been part of their tradition as long as the tribe has ever existed. In the early part of this century the Makah voluntarily abandoned the whale hunt in recognition of the precarious situation of the gray whale. When the whale was listed as an endangered species in 1969 the hunt was officially banned. The Makah were formally forced to give up whaling. After seventy years, however, the Makah are once again in a position to whale. They wish to do so on the basis of the importance of whaling to their traditional culture. This wish, however, ...

The Function Of The Female Orgasm - 1,966 words
This is something I wrote while I was at college about a year ago and it details some new research that has been published about the possible purpose of the female orgasm, which I think is pretty interesting... It's pretty dry and academic in tone and contains some fairly specialist language, but most of it should be pretty clear to most people. If anyone has a question or wants some more information on this kind of thing, mail me: Does the female orgasm have a function and, if so, what is it? The female orgasm, and indeed female sexuality in general, has been one of the most consistently debated areas in human behavioural ecology. For many years the field was characterised by a paucity of ...
