... d warming of climate where there is an increase in the growth of plant material and plant foods. This change would have promoted a growth in subsistence farming, at the very least. This would have increased the amount of plant carbohydrates and thus there was an increase in the occurrence in evidence of caries. Again in the Mesolithic there is further warming in the surrounding climate to the point where an even greater amount of plant food harvest is attainable for human consumption. Frayer found that for the Mesolithic, there was a negative correlation between rates of caries and latitude. This was the case where skeletal assemblages from northern sites continually show a decrease in c ...

Positive Changes In The Workplace - 1,224 words
... l the mastodons and live for another season. We really have not changed all that much. Today's workplace requires us to give our best as often as possible. James Kouzes feels that "Opportunities to challenge the status quo and introduce change opens the doors to doing one's best. Challenge is the motivation environment for excellence (Kouzes, Posner 39)". The only exception that needs to be brought out by that is that we need to give people a change to get used to the changes before we introduce more. The major reason for stress is when you do not allow for the adjustment period in-between major changes. " Stress has gotten a bad name. Stress of all kinds is good ----- physical, emotiona ...

Ecommerce Companies And Stock Valuations - 1,417 words
eCommerce Companies and Stock Valuations A hot topic in todays business culture is eCommerce. Experts argue about whether eCommerce will change business, whether or not it is a fad, and what viable strategies there are in a business world that is changing at the speed of idea generation. One thing that nobody argues about is the fact that eCommerce oriented companies have stock prices and market capitalizations that are enormous. Based on losses rather than earnings, some of these stock prices are inexplicable. This paper is a thought experiment that attempts to gather and disseminate data regarding these stock prices. Additionally, the paper will attempt to propose solutions and reasons for ...

Ecommerce Companies And Stock Valuations - 1,445 words
... ecently popularized the PEG Model. This model is especially efficient for valuing growth stocks. The basic theory assumes that a stock should trade at a price where the stocks P/E (price to earnings ratio) is roughly equal to its long-term growth rate . Using simple algebra, the price of the stock should be a function of the growth rate times earnings: P = G * E. The model tends to work well. However, to calculate a reasonable value, it is necessary to have positive values for growth and earnings in the future. As earnings approach zero, the P/E ratio is equal to infinity. Coordinately, zero earnings would imply a price of zero based on the model. Although, most users of the model assume ...

Waste - 1,261 words
Environmental pollution encompasses the different ways that the human activity damages the natural environment. It can be in the form of an open garbage dump or as simple as a burning house. Pollution can also be invisible, odourless, and tasteless, thus, making environmental pollution one of the most serious and insidious problems facing humanity and other life forms today. One of the chief sources and most visible forms of environmental pollution is solid waste. In order to reduce solid wastes, one has to understand the sources and volumes of solid waste generated by humans, and then the impacts and handling of the solid wastes. Only then can one begin to propose solutions to this environm ...

Humans have within their grasp the ability and technology to create life. Many believe that this knowledge will lead to further degradation of the human spirit. But others, like Prometheus and his gift of fire, believe that new technology is the key to a new, and better, reality. Genetic engineering and, specifically, cloning, of human life has become an issue of extreme gravity in the age of technology where anything may be dreamed and many things are possible. Cloning is a reality in today's world: "Three months ago, Gearhart and Thomson announced that they had each isolated embryonic stem cells and induced them to begin copying themselves without turning into anything else.

John F. Kennedy was president during this time period and we were under Democratic leadership. Kennedy's first year in office brought him considerable success in enacting new legislation. Congress passed a major housing bill, a law increasing the minimum wage, and a bill granting federal aid to economically depressed areas of the United States. The most original piece of legislation Kennedy put through Congress was the bill creating the Peace Corps, an agency that trained American volunteers to perform social and humanitarian services overseas. The goal of the Peace Corps was to promote world peace and friendship with developing nations. However, after his initial success with Congress, Kenn ...

History Of The Income Tax - 1,379 words
The federal progressive income tax has been an issue that has been argued on the floors of Congress, in front of the United States Supreme Court, in front of television cameras, and around the dinner table. The tax served its purpose in supplementing revenue during the Civil War and World War I, but continued taking from Americans income in peacetime, allowing fewer dollars to be spent on goods and services. When the American government was in a deficit, it was harder to argue for the abolishment of the income tax, but now that Congress is looking at a government surplus for the first time in decades, the question is raised again: Do we have to have a progressive federal income tax? Prior to ...

Charter Schools - 1,326 words
Charter schools are nonsectarian public schools of choice that operate with freedom from many of the regulations that apply to traditional public schools. The "charter" establishing each such school is a performance contract detailing the school's mission, program, goals, students served, methods of assessment, and ways to measure success. The length of time for which charters are granted vary but most are granted for 3-5 years. At the end of the term, the body granting the charter may renew the school's contract. Charter schools are accountable to their sponsor (usually a state or local school board) to produce positive academic results and stick to the charter contract. The basic concept o ...

Pardoners Tale - 1,614 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 exemplum of his sermon 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 that 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 sermon ...

Canceris There An Effective Treatment - 1,323 words
One of the many complications with cancer is that there are so many different types. Currently, there are 112 types of cancer, and there is an estimated 80 more types of cancer that are undiscovered. (United States Cancer Rates) That leads to as many different treatments as there are types of cancer. Figure 1, located after the Recommendations section, on page 8 displays the number of recorded cancer cases over the past 15 years. I propose to look at several types of treatments and decide which method of treatment is the best based on effectiveness, side effects, and cost of each treatment. Cancer has affected mankind throughout history. Archeologists have discovered ancient Egyptian manuscr ...

Hard Times - 733 words
"A Modest Proposal"Jonathan Swift wrote this essay as a satirical proposal for the purpose of exploiting social and economic issues in a sophisticated and comic way. Its main purpose is to prevent the poor people of Ireland, particularly the children, not to be burdens on their parents and to their country and for making them useful to society. This proposal suggesting the idea of cannibalism is a grimly sarcastic letter of recommendation in which the citizens of Ireland suggest that economic conditions could be diminished if the poor parent=s children were used as dainty for the nobles and gentlemen=s dinner table. Swift presented his proposal by making his idea appealing to the public. He ...

An Analysis Of The Indomitable Spirit Of Man In Henry Wadsworth Longfellows Poetry - 1,604 words

Man has always struggled with uncontrollable aspects of his environment, but his ability to overcome these seemingly indomitable obstacles has earned recognition from numerous classical writers and poets, including Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. One of the real American Poets of yesterday (Montiero, Preface), Longfellow elaborates on mans perpetual struggle with life and nature in his poetry.

The improvements that definitely need to be made are being worked on throughout our society. The violence in our schools is a major problem that needs to be addressed.

Interpretive Analysis Of A Modest Proposal - 1,436 words
Swift's "A Modest Proposal", in which he suggests that the problem of Irish poverty can be solved by the sale of the children of the poor for consumption, is above all things a criticism of human faults: extremism of thinking, greed, pride, hypocrisy, intolerance, and insensitivity. His use of ireony is evident even in the title: the idea that not only should poor Irish children be eaten, but that they should be bred for eating is certainly anything but modest. Swift's plan is that through irony, sarcasm, and exaggeration, the reader will recognize those faults which may not seem so obvious in their more mild forms. In Swift's criticism of extremist thinking, he switches back and forth throu ...

Oronoko - 1,497 words
Coromantien was a part of Africa, which in the seventeenth century was one of the chief resorts of the slave traders. Its king was a man of more than a hundred years old. Thirteen of his sons died in battle, and he had left for a successor one grandchild, called Oroonoko. He was sent into the field to be trained to war as soon as he could bear a bow. At the age of seventeen he became one of the bravest and most expert of captains. The old General, a father-like figure, who had trained Oroonoko in war, had left at his death his only daughter Imoinda, in which fell in love with Oroonoko.
