Opportunities and Challenges of the Internet In a world of light-speed data transmission, any individual with little training and expertise can make a fortune from the Internet.

Fahrenheit 451 - 1,222 words
... ook is a triumph over darkness (de Koster 30). The publication of The Martian Chronicles established Bradburys mainstream reputation as Americans foremost science-fiction writer; therefore, when the book Fahrenheit 451 was published just 3 years later it confirmed the hype of the first book. There is no doubt that these two books were the greatest and best-known books that Bradbury has written. Some critics think that Fahrenheit 451 is too vague and sentimental, but it is still one of the greatest science fiction satires of our times. It is written in response to the cold war atmosphere after WWII. Its sarcasm is directed at the destruction of intelligence in America today (Mogen 105). T ...

Uniforms In Public School - 1,538 words
... dropped rapidly and 600 students have been given detention and 200 suspended. This did exactly the opposite of what uniforms are suppose to accomplish. If policy makers are serious about finding solutions to the problem of school violence, maybe they should ask the real experts: the students themselves. The ACLU recently conducted a series of focus groups with high school students asking them what would help reduce violence in school. Uniforms did not make the list. Their suggestion: 1. Since school violence mimics that of society at large, schools should seriously confront and discuss issues of racism and cultural conflict. 2. School entrances should be secured. 3. More extracurricular ...

Women also have been known to use them, especially Chinese women. For example, there was quite a controversy in the recent National Games in Shanghai, China. According to Phillip Whitten of The New Republic, ...in the weight-lifting arena alone, Chinese women eclipsed every world record in all nine weight classes...in some weight-lifting events, the old marks were passed by 60 pounds or more--in a sport which usually measures world record improvements in one- or two-pound increments (10).

Competition Essay - 488 words
Competition is a part of life that cant be avoided. Even when we dont realize we are doing it, we all try our hardest at what we do often trying to rise above everyone else. Often on the school level many types of competition are nurtured and encouraged. From very young ages little children are put in sports programs and music lessons and are asked to perform their very best. A competition to achieve high-grade marks is also placed upon children and this competition lasts the individuals entire career as a student. Competition for grades is a healthy almost necessary influence on students. No practice, however, is perfect or works for everyone. Some students will feel unnecessary pressure on ...

Music School Drop Outs - 1,561 words
Three of the four highest rated possible reasons for student dropout essentially support findings of previous research; "loss of interest," "scheduling conflicts," and "lack of parental support" apparently are perceived as continuing problems with respect to loss of students in instrumental music programs. However, the reason perceived by directors as the major contributor to student dropout, student "lack of commitment to work," had not emerged in previous research. Apparently this psychological variable, which reflects a strong affective component, dominates the other possible variables, at least from these directors' perspectives. Obviously, the 19 reasons included in the questionnaire we ...

Welfare - 911 words
Purpose The purpose of this discussion is to compare and contrast the values and assumptions of both Charles Murray and Lawrence Mead vis-a-vis Michael Harrington and William J. Wilson, specifically addressing poverty programs and the reasons for their failure during the 1960's and 1970's. Similarly, I shall address their underlying assumptions and values and how they are shared and how they differ. For example, Michael Harrington has been an outspoken critic of the failure of the 60's and 70's so-called war on poverty. Quite honestly, I believe that his treatise on The New American Poverty is not only insightful, but offers compassion as well. This is somewhat rare amongst the social schola ...

Sugar Cane Plantations - 542 words
In 1913 my Great Grandfather Man Kum Paik immigrated to Hawaii to work in the infamous sugar cane plantations. He first arrived in Koloa, Kauai. My Great Grandmother came over two years later. They moved to the Big Island where my Great Grandfather worked in the Plantation fields in the Paala plant.

Should The Performing Arts Receive Equal Treatment With Sports - 1,478 words
Should the performing arts receive equal as sports? The performing arts have been proven to increase a childs mind. Yet sports keep the mind and body strong. This is a debate that has being going on for the past 20 years. On whether funding should be used to fund sports or the performing arts. People argue for both sides. Today I am arguing for the performing arts. Music education being the right of all children it must be taught in appropriate ways suggested by the geographical cultural and social environment (3).

Keplers Life - 917 words
Johannes Kepler was born at 2:30 PM on December 27, 1571, in Weil der Stadt, Wrttemburg, in the Holy Roman Empire. His family was Lutheran and he adhered to the Augsburg Confession. This adherence later caused him hardships. He was a sickly child and his parents were poor. But his evident intelligence earned him a scholarship to the University of Tbingen. There he was introduced to and delighted in the ideas of Copernicus. In 1596, while a mathematics teacher in Graz, he wrote the first outspoken defense of the Copernican system, the Mysterium Cosmographicum. Kepler was forced to leave his teaching post at Graz due to the counter Reformation because he was Lutheran and moved to Prague to wor ...

The Law Of Gasesl - 1,190 words
... le then existed he could not, and did not, determine the relationship between degree of hotness (temperature) and volume of a gas quantitatively.(Siebring, Richard, Page 32) Guillaume Amontons (d. 1705) developed the air thermometer, which uses the increase in the volume of a gas with temperature rather than the volume of a liquid. The air thermometer is an excellent demonstration of Charles' law because the atmosphere maintains a fixed downward pressure above a small mercury plug of constant mass. The volume of a trapped sample of air increases on heating until the pressure of the trapped air equals the pressure of the atmosphere plus the small pressure due to the plug. Nevertheless, Am ...

The Need For Reform In Collegiate Sports - 1,658 words
The current institutional structure of intercollegiate athletics is attempting to maximize educational quality and athletic excellence simultaneously. Each of which will inevitably impinge on one another. Universities claim that their athletes are amateurs who are attending college for academic achievement and play sports in their free time. This is an impossible task for anybody. Higher education has entered the arena of big business with its athletic programs and with it many problems have emerged for coaches, athletes, and the athletic system itself. There is systematic corruption. Exploitation and hypocrisy are givens in college athletics. Athletic personnel are mistakenly given the resp ...

The Importance Of Picking The Right Career Path - 311 words
We seem to think that choosing the right career is an easy task. I too felt the same way until I found myself stuck in a dead end job. As a elementary student we are taught to set goals that predefine what we will be when we grow up. Those careers appeared to be very promising at that time. By the time we reach middle school not only have those goals changed but they are now completely opposite of the career path chosen in elementary school. At the high school level after having experienced working in our various part-time positions, we now know what career path we should not choose. Even at college level some still have not decided which career path to take. After college I started working ...

Paulo Freire And Solutions To Educational Problems - 1,101 words
Paulo Freire has clearly shown that he feels the only way to help education is to begin using problem-posing. He completely dismisses the banking concept of having any good qualities and also shows problem-posing as flawless. In my own experiences, I have found that the banking concept does have good qualities and problem-posing is far from flawless. I better solution for education at the high school level would be to find a median between these two concepts. Before a solution can be made, we first need to see what parts of Freires concepts do not work in high schools. With the banking concept, the teacher seems to be far superior and more intellectual than his students. He intimidates stude ...

Modest Successes In Theatre - 479 words
A hobby is defined to be a pursuit outside one's regular occupation engaged in especially for relaxation. Theatre, a fine art, chosen by many in their spare time is my favorite hobby. Theatre is not only an ability to act, but also more of a life lesson. Within theatre you learn communication, and life skills. Theatre was first introduced to society in 500 BC in Athens Greece. Every year a festival was held in honor of their god, Dionysus. The only special ceremony for this god was the chanting of hymns until a man named Thespis suggested someone stepping forward to reply to the leader of the chorus, which produced dialogue, or speech, and the opportunity for conflict. The actor and principa ...

Teenagers And Drug Abuse - 655 words
Many teenagers today use illegal drugs and substances. There are many factors that influence drug use. Whether people say it is parents that influence the most or peers that influence the most, each one has a role in it. Some surveys say drug use is going down and some say it is going up. Whichever the case may be it is still a problem to our society. The presence of a parent is no as important as people think when talking about drug use. Research shows that the presence or absence of parents is less crucial than the quality of the parent child relationship(Whitman 22). Also there are many things that can happen in a family. When there is a drastic change in the family structure, for example ...
