Ezra Pound - 1,323 words
Ezra Pound and T.S. Eliot on Modernism On Ezra Pounds quote on modernism, he claims that the modern age wants a literature that reflects an image of itself: accelerated and mass produced (a mould in plaster/Made with no loss of time) as well as superficial. This means that todays society wants a literature that resembles itself, fast paced and shallow. Society want literature that is direct and straightforward simply because people find it too time consuming to think for themselves. They would rather resort to the work already being done for them. Instead of experiencing the true beauty of literature and the arts, they would rather use Cliffs Notes (the classics in paraphrase). As a result o ...

Fetal Development - 1,355 words
Fetal development starts with the process of fertilization. It starts when the female ovulates producing an egg. This egg then travels into the fallopian tube where it waits to be fertilized.

Sugars Symphony - 985 words
Some have coined music as a universal language. Perhaps, the complexity of the notes, the consistency of the beat, the array of instruments, or the flow of lyricism offers this universal appeal. Nevertheless, the unique composition of each song enables it to sustain its own magnetic aura, much like the musical implication in Lewis Nordans Music of the Swamp. Though, many argue Nordans piece suggests merely a collection of short stories rather than a novel, Nordan uses his singsong methodology- a novel-in-stories- to incorporate an anthology of his transformative memory- an autobiography of the way it was. By examining the structure of Music of the Swamp, it can be broken into a series of sho ...

The cold gray steel of the axe arced one last time through the air, the pick burrowed itself one last time into the frozen blanket of snow, and the hand that held it took a final pull, to ensure a secure placement. After a brief pause, George Mallory took a deep breath, and pulled himself over the crux, and onto the top. Slowly, shakily, he stood up, and took a look around, the first time American eyes had seen the world from this vantage point. This was it. He had done it. He was the first American to ever climb Everest. The sky was a most crystalline blue, and clear too, except for the small puffy white clouds in the distant East. George had the most incredible view ever seen in all direct ...

Egypt is a country that is extremely rich in its historical background. With such a background it is easy to see why tourism is a big component of its gross national product. The well being of the Egyptian economy is highly dependent on a good year of tourism. The whole business of tourism has relied on the ancient monuments and relics of the past, but in recent years there has been a huge effort to create more modern tourist attractions like resorts and golf courses. The combinations of the old and new attractions comprise the biggest sector of the Egyptian economy. For the most part it is said that Egypt consists basically of six different tourist sites.

Be Nice - 546 words
My two-year-old nieces favorite phrase is Be nice. Anytime she is crossed, does not get what she wants, scolded or reprimanded, Be nice is her response. It is just a quiet, innocently spoken Be nice; almost like she is trying to remind you how to act. Two little words can go a long way. Be nice. Why is that so hard for some people to do? It makes every ones day go a lot more smoothly when people show common courtesy. It does not have to be something prolific, things like holding the door open for the person behind you, pushing the elevator buttons for the person in the wheelchair, picking up a quarter that an elderly lady dropped, all the little things eventually add up.

Vegetarianism - 931 words
Nothing will benefit human health and increase the chances for survival of life on Earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet. Albert Einstein Vegetarianism is the practice of not eating meat or some animal products, depending on the degree of vegetarianism.
