... refully prepared plans were ready to be implemented almost at once. Huge public buildings, great dams, and irrigation and flood-control projects are part of PWAs legacy. The most spectacular agency designed to promote general economic improvement was the National Recovery Administration (NRA), an organization set up (along with the PWA) by the National Industrial Recovery Act (NIRA), which was passed by Congress in June 1933. The NRA was designed to help business help itself. Unfair competition was supposed to be eliminated through the establishment of codes of fair competition; in effect, laws against combinations of large businesses were to be suspended in exchange for guarantees to wo ...

Lassezfaire Government - 389 words
Laissez-faire policy has always been a fundamental principle of the federal government. Between the years of 1860 and 1900, the governments role seems to be very small. New government policies are almost nonexistent and the few policies they enforced were standard government administrations. However, toward the end of the century, economic growth in the US can be linked to direct government intervention. From the mid 1970s to the early 1890s, the federal followed standard government procedure and maintained the national military, conducted foreign policy and collected tariffs and taxes. The national government had little diversions to result in additional responsibilities. The lone exception ...

A movement for Philippine independence, involving diverse groups, continued throughout the occupation. A Commonwealth government was established in 1935 to allow limited self-rule but this was interrupted by the Second World War and the Japanese occupation.

The Wasteland - 1,324 words
Poetry is not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion; it is not the expression of personality, but an escape from personality. But, of course, only those who have personality and emotions know what it means to want to escape from these things. Eliot, Tradition and the Individual Talent Eliot believed poetry should be a lot like archaeology, the process itself like a carefully excavated dig. His relics are no more than scraps of ancient texts, warped and distorted by time, like the archaeologists finds. And just like an archaeologist, Eliot can only understand his ancient treasures from his own context, utilizing his own experiences. In many of his poems, Eliot writes of emp ...

User Friendly In Childhoods End - 1,139 words
In Arthur C. Clarkes novel Childhoods End, people or beings use each other for selfish reasons. Sometimes it is subtle, even subconscious; other times it is a blatant usage. Three obvious examples occur and kind of chase each other around in a triangular fashion. 1) The Overlords use humans/humanity. 2) The Overmind uses humans. 3) The Overmind uses the Overlords. Humans also attempt to use the Overlords even though the Overlords are omnipotent and seem to already have humanitys fatal future planned out. Other than these overlying uses, small examples exist between characters throughout the novel. These will be cited and explained in a somewhat chronological One of the first instances is Wai ...

Tender Is The Night - 1,101 words
The Triumph of Nature over Civilization: The Disintegration of Dick Diver The exact nature of Dick Divers descent throughout the course of Tender is the Night is difficult to discern. It is clear enough that his disintegration is occasioned by Nicoles burgeoning independence, but why or how her transformation affects him this way is less than obvious. Moreover, it is not at all apparent what is at stake, more abstractly, in this reciprocal exchange of fates. In this paper, I will propose a reading of this change that relates Nicoles strength to her naturalness, her identification with instinct and natural impulse, and Dicks strength to his civilization, his identification with the curtailmen ...

... signifying that the boy had become a man and was ready for marriage. A girl's transition to adolescence came with her first menstruation, at which time she was placed in temporary isolation for up to a month or even longer. With further maturation, marked by the growth of her breasts, she exchanged the clothes of childhood for those of the adult woman. At this time, women were tattooed by making a series of closely drawn parallel lines extending from the center of the lower lip to the chin. In the early 1960s, a few women of sixty-five or more still carried these symbols of early womanhood; but by then the custom marking differences in age and gender had become obsolete. Much of the Inu ...

And yet words are still the tools by which, literally, men live or die. Levin's search for structure, as mentioned above, may be considered a struggle to find a language of truth. Nowhere is this more evident than in Levin's observation of the sky that occurs first at the end of the mowing scene and then much later in Part VIII, an example both of Levin's d ...

Everyman - 778 words
Everyman the play is a lesson in correct or righteous behavior, thought, belief, and action for the common man of the day. The majority of the play is devoted to demonstrating how temporary everything in life is as death approaches, except good deeds. The play follows a pattern where, Everyman, the universal protagonist, pleads with a character, who is the physical embodiment of some worldly attribute, to go with him on a journey to his day of reckoning, which is followed by promises of allegience from the other characters ending in ultimate betrayal. The play takes one noticeable break from this pattern in order to take off on a tangent led by two of the earthy characters, Knowledge and the ...

Studies have been conducted on what factors lead to delinquency. Proposed factors of delinquency have been studied in three major fields, biological, psychological, and sociological.

He differed from La Mettrie and others, however, because he believed that the only relief from the ills of society and circumstance of life was in faith in God, not reason. Rousseau too believed that culture was artificial, that it was constructed by society and not natural. Rousseau, however, still believed that culture should transcend an indifferent and amoral nature. He accounts for evil and justice in the world and urges to fight against them, to transcend them. It was inevitable, and logical that the Marquis de Sade would be able to ...

Power Goes To Teachers Students And Discipline - 1,782 words
For at least two decades discipline has been at or near the top of the list of public concerns about our schools.1 Nor should this surprise us; developing the mix of foresight, judgement, and self-control that enables (or perhaps just constitutes) "discipline" is an important task of childhood. As long as schools are places where part of a childs education takes place, helping children develop discipline will be one of the "problems" that is, legitimate tasks that schools face. However, when used in school-talk, "discipline" often is translated into terms of control and power, not development or education. "Discipline" is often, perhaps usually, synonymous with "classroom management." This ...

... way we think about power in sexual relations. She draws her ideas upon the following quote made by the lesbian protagonist in Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit, "I want someone who will destroy and be destroyed be me". Her interpretation of this statement is the reason why the lesbian protagonist left heterosexuality behind is because of the one way process of "destruction", namely the man's destruction of the women, whilst in a lesbian relationship she can reciprocate this destruction. With this interpretation, the problem with heterosexuality is not that there are power relations within it but rather at this point of time that this power is non-reciprocal process, which the man places on ...

Title: The Effects of Substrate Concentration and Temperature on the Rate of Hydrolysis of the Enzyme Trypsin. Abstract: Quantitative measurements can relate both temperature and substrate concentration to the enzymatic activity of trypsin. By analyzing the data, it is suggested that at BAPNA concentrations below those corresponding to Vmax are rate limiting, as less active sights are available for adhesion. The values of Vmax and Km relate a temperate catalytic efficiency of trypsin. The temperature range of most efficiency for the enzyme was those between 36 and 54 degrees Celsius. Introduction: Enzymes are specialized proteins that aid in formation or breakdown of larger protein or multi- ...

Kennedys Career Decisions - 1,354 words
Faced with the problem of choosing a career, Kennedy worked for several months in 1945 as a reporter for the Hearst newspapers, covering the conference at San Francisco that established the United Nations. There he noted the "belligerent Russian attitude." Ultimately he decided on a political career and returned to Boston. In so choosing, he took the place of his brother Joseph, who had seemed destined for politics but had been killed in World War II. His opportunity came when James M. Curley vacated his seat in the House of Representatives from the overwhelmingly Democratic 11th Massachusetts Congressional District to become mayor of Boston. Early in 1946, Kennedy announced his candidacy in ...
