Children And Television Advertising - 3,353 words

Uganda - 1,477 words
The people of Uganda have had many types of governments during their long history, but until the coming of British Colonialism, there was no central government. Originally government was in the hands of the tribal groups who elected their own leaders and made their own laws, which all members of their group were expected to follow. Later some central authority was given to the kings of the various tribes, including the largest of these, the Buganda, whose ruler, the Kabaka, was considered the king and had ultimate authority over his people and their land ( Cavendish, 31). Mutesa II, whose full name was Sir Edward William David Walugembe Mutebi Luwangula Mutesa, was the Kababa of the East Afr ...

Napoleon, who was thought by some to have already repented this transaction, could not have been expected to tolerate any departure from its terms. Recognizing that this was no time for constitutional purism, the president yielded to his friends, while strict constructionist arguments were taken up ineffectually by the New England Federalists. Nearly everybody else enthusiastically approved of the acquisition. In May 1801 the Pasha of the piratical state of Tripoli, dissatisfied with his tribute, declared war on the United States.

Andrew Jackson won by 647,000 votes to 507,000, 178-83 in electoral college. Far more people voted for president than in 1824, as the states were beginning to let the people select presidential electors. A new two-party system emerged from the election of 1828. From then on, parties ran their candidates for President and Vice-president together as a ticket. John C. Calhoun was the last man to run for Vice President independently.

Samuel Adams Radical Puritan - 1,010 words
A Book Review of Samuel Adams: Radical Puritan Historians such as Drew McCoy and Joseph Ellis have produced noteworthy studies of the Founders and their impact on the time period of the American Revolution. Fowler's supplement to this blossoming literature is in many ways a traditional biography. It investigates Samuel Adams's life as it unfolded and pays less attention to the larger conceptual issues that commanded the age. No reader can escape this brief biography without a sense of the personal loss that Samuel Adams felt when he witnessed the death of many of his children and his wife. Delivering five children, three deaths among them took a heavy toll on ElizabethElizabeth died on 25 Ju ...

For those who could afford it, it was a rectangular cloak that was wound around the body under the left armpit, and then knotted over the right shoulder (Bray 1968). When he was to sit down, he slipped his cloak down in front of him so that it covered up his legs. Rich men wore more than one cloak at a time to express wealth. For the women, the principal garment was a skirt which reached almost to the ankles and was held at the waist by an embroidered belt. Most skirts were a plain white cloth but for special times, th ...

Futuristic US citizens, such as Henry Ford, envisioned a nation powered by organic, renewal Bio Mass Energy derived from hemp. Its demise was realized as the large monopolies were negotiating their rise to power (8). So how did this gift from God, this plant that served as legal currency become illegal? Why? Many factors came together, which eventually ended up yanking hemp out of its vital role as an American staple.

Rubin V Coors Brewing Co - 1,193 words
CASE CITATION: Rubin v. Coors Brewing Co. (514 US 476), 1995 The rules and principals of commercial law are of ancient origin. Throughout the centuries merchants engaged in trade and commerce have recognized customs and usages which regulate and control their conduct. Gradually over the years a body of law developed (Robert & Corley, 312) Commercial speech arose in 1942 when the Supreme Court announced that the First Amendment does not protect it. As the years went on, on the Bicentennial of our Republic, the Courts position was reversed and they declared that the First Amendment protects commercial speech.

The Big H Tells All - 1,520 words
The short story The Big H Tells All is an account of how a man named Edgar rises to small town fame by becoming the host of a local talk show. This show is the most popular thing on television to the townsfolk, and the demanding viewing audience can be rather ruthless at times. The other characters in the story consist of the local talk show guests: a nine-year-old girl named Karla with a puppet act, a fire fighter/humorist named Danny, and the Ritters, a couple known around town for their weekend spent at a sex clinic. Other characters are only mentioned and are not all that important to the plot, except for the references to the past host of the show, Mrs. Donna Reeves. Though only referre ...

The American Scholar - 1,412 words
According to Ralph Waldo Emerson, the American Scholar is one whose individual character is split. The Emersonian character is made up of many different parts, therefore influenced by several aspects of everyday life. As Emerson states, Man is priest, and scholar, and statesman, and producer, and soldier. In the divided or social state, these functions are parceled out to individuals, each of whom aims to do his stint of the joint work, whilst each other performs his (294). One can easily relate ones own life to each of these characteristics as it is evident what Emerson is stating. As man is both one of each person, he is all of them combined. As Emerson describes the influences on man as p ...

He was also quoted "It is not the role of network television to program for the children of America.... Televisions obligation is not (to be) the nation's baby-sitter." Barry Diller who was quoted by Frank Rich of the New York Times does not support this view that television has no public service responsibility. Diller thinks the V-Chip is a "genuinely dumbbell idea." But Diller believes that broadcasters will make a real, long-term commitment to public interest TV only if forced to do so as part of a trade-off for the "spectrum"-the addi ...
