Family Albums: A Practical Analysis - 1,330 words
Since their inception in the 1860s, family albums have played an important role as the promoters of familial ideology and treasures of familial memory. Most family photograph albums in containing a great variety of items, both identified and unidentified, from different periods and of varying quality, held together by their collective identity with the family (Schoeman, 1996: 8). The function of familial photography is to fix perception and memory, represent a method of preserving memories, document important moments and confirm social relationships and fact of belonging (Tobiassen, 1990). When photographs are stored in albums the process resembles the writing of family history (Tobiassen, 1 ...

Practical Assesment Of Hypnosis - 1,300 words
Based on studies using the Stanford scales, researchers with very different theoretical perspectives now agree on several fundamental principles of hypnosis. The first is that a person's ability to respond to hypnosis is remarkably stable during adulthood. In perhaps the most compelling illustration of this tenet, a study showed that when retested, Hilgard's original subjects had roughly the same scores on the Stanford scales as they did 10, 15 or 25 years earlier. Studies have shown that an individual's Stanford score remains as consistent over time as his or her IQ score--if not more so. In addition, evidence indicates that hypnotic responsiveness may have a hereditary component: identical ...

Business: Practical Application Vs. Ethics - 1,134 words
Pete Holiday said 'Capitalism needs to function like a game of tug-of-war. Two opposing sides need to continually struggle for dominance, but at no time can either side be permitted to walk away with the rope.' It seems that college is just training for a businessperson to deal with that tug of war. Michael Inciardi, a York College Senior, thought that one of the most important skills he acquired from college was "Competing seemingly enormous tasks in time that was not enough to do them." I see college it self as an experience in budgeting your time and allocating for the seemingly enormous tasks when there does not appear to be enough time. Through my interviews and readings, it seems that ...

Education And Egalitarianism In America - 2,346 words

The new methods, combined with the physical organization of the school, represented the direct opposite of Pestalozzi's belief that the child's innate powers should be allowed to develop naturally. Rather, the child must be lopped off or stretched to fit the procrustean curriculum. Subjects were graded according to difficulty, assigned to certain years, and taught by a rigid daily timetable. The amount of information that the child had absorbed through drill and memorization was determined by how much could be extracted from him by examinations. Reward or punishment came in the form of grades. At the end of the 19th century the methods of presenting information had thus been streamlin ...

The American Revolution was fought to change oppressive taxation and Legislation by the English government in order to reinstate the social political, and economic structure of the colonies before the English oppression.

After the wars, America gained its independence, but based it's government around the welfare of the people, using John Locke's theory of government serving the people, instead of the people serving government.

Ben Franklins Religion - 1,879 words
Although in his Autobiography Benjamin Franklin claims that at a young age he "became a thorough Deist" (1359), Franklin saw God as much more than a blind watchmaker. Among his frequent references to practicality, reason, and the value of experimental science, Franklin's metaphysical beliefs  easily get lost, especially as he distances himself theologically from colonial Christian doctrines. It becomes convenient but incorrect to let Franklin's "virtue" stand apart from his religious beliefs. Franklin maintained a firm belief, however, in "a Being of infinite Wisdom, Goodness and Power" (165) , a God who by "providence"  acts frequently in the world, a power who could and would susp ...

[...] a Devil on't the Woman damns the Poet. -- Aphra Behn, Preface to The Lucky Chance Aphra Behn (1640-1689) was not the first woman writer; neither was she the only woman writer of her day. But Aphra Behn holds the singular distinction of being the first professional woman writer in the English language. That's right, ladies -- Aphra Behn was the first woman writer who did it for money. It was a natural choice for this young woman, a recent spy for the crown and a widow at the age of 26, to turn to selling herself (in a manner of speaking) in order to survive.Many other women of the period did so; but instead of novels and plays, they sold something much more fundamental and far more comm ...
