... symptoms of inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity, it has been shown in numerous studies that stimulant medication provides significant benefits to between 70 and 80% of children with ADHD.

The working women of the 90's is becoming more and more accepted , but advertisements still cannot seem to divorce themselves from the concept that the work place is just another medium in which their consumers can display themselves. They feel obligated to include the token women in work place environments who seem to enjoy modeling the latest style of working clothes, like one ad I saw which was selling the great little office dress. Little being the operative word in that sentence. They promote t ...

Annual Driving Tests for Senior Citizens One problem when driving on the roads is when a person runs across another person who should not be driving a car. Quite often, the person that should not be driving is an older person. The problem occurs when the older people can not handle the car that he or she is driving. Statistics have shown that older are involved in a high percentage of wrecks when compared to other age groups. I feel that an annual driving test should be required for everyone once he or she reaches a certain age. Many people may say that the age chosen is arbitrary. I feel that once a person is old enough to retire, he or she should be required to take an annual driving test. ...

Stephen Crane - 1,041 words
In Stephen Crane's The Open Boat, Crane uses a personal experience that happened to him to pattern this short story after. Crane's writing style consists of a very prominent use of naturalism.

The corruption of Americas youth is a popular topic today in the media, among lawmakers, and with concerned parents. Often the good old days of generations past are looked upon with longing because of their simpler ways. Decades ago the largest problems in schools were talking out in class, not paying attention, and forgetting to do homework. Todays problems are violence, teen pregnancy, drug and alcohol abuse, and delinquency in general. Everyone believes these issues are a result of something different: bad home lives, lack of religious ideals, the media, the wrong education or no education at all. Throughout the years, moral education has been looked to as both an answer and cause. School ...

The institutions itself are different and I think to compare them is very interesting. The German public schools are institutions where the students only go until afternoon while the American school is the center of a student's life.

Using Irradiation To Make Food Safer For Consumers - 1,089 words
... the product and not in all directions, the electron beam is more efficient. A ten kilowatt beam generator is as powerful as about one-million curies from a cobalt-60 source (Murano 14-15). The electron accelerators produce from five to ten million electron volts and ten to fifty kilowatts (Murano 15-16). The electron beam efficiency can be increased by aiming the beam at a metal target, usually tungsten or tantalum. This produces Bremsstrahlung x-rays. This type of x-ray can penetrate as well as gamma rays, but two-hundred kilowatts would be required to achieve necessary throughput. Irradiation requires different levels of exposure for different tasks. The International System's unit of ...

Driving Restrictions - 971 words

My young brothers and most definitely my grandparents would probably kill me for saying so, but there should be some changes made to the laws concerning the age requirements of drivers. If the State of Ohio changed the age requirement of operating a vehicle to between 18-70 years of age, our roads would be much safer to drive on. If you had told me when I turned sixteen that I couldnt get my license until I turned eighteen, I would have thrown a fit. Now that I am older, I realize that I had no business driving an automobile at 16 years old. I was the typical teenage driver. The cool one, who had the Detroit lean, with th ...
