Tolerance Happens - 761 words
Effective as of November 28, 1995, President Bill Clinton signed legislation that forces states to adopt a Zero Tolerance Law, to prevent teens as well as adults from driving under the influence. To the youth of today, it doesnt really matter if drinking is illegal. No matter how much we spend on new laws, there will always be a way that the younger generation will sneak past to continue drinking. The problem shouldnt be considered as who is drinking, but should be referred to as who isnt drinking responsibly. As in the words of Martin Luther King, Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity. The spending of our hard earned tax dollars has become ...

Too Much Tolerance - 681 words
Dogmatic Tolerance = Hypocritical Tolerance. It is a word synonymous with peace, good will, brotherly love, acceptance and forgiveness. It is a virtue that is essential in a world filled with racial and religious discrimination. But at the same time tolerance, or, more specifically, the modern, politically correct definition of tolerance, holds some very dangerous pitfalls which, if our government, and we, as a people are not careful of, could be crippling to the individualism, and the religious diversity of Canada, and the world. The dictionary definition of tolerance is: The capacity for, or the practice of recognizing and respecting the beliefs or practices of others, but the definition h ...

Equality To All - 2,176 words
The question has been raised: who is in control of curriculum in our school? Not just the choosing of the precise books, but who is in charge of the contents of the books that curriculum directors can choose from? Once the answers to these questions are found, what should be done if they point to one group? So many problems in the United States have arisen when the people discover that one group is violating the peoples rights in some way by not allowing others power, that it would be logical to conclude that it would be perceived by many to be unfair if it is found that one interest group chooses what all American children learn, especially if that interest group is furthering their own int ...

Country Risk Analysis - 1,644 words
... the Irish economy. One may look at this number from an executive MNC perspective and say that there is not a very large pool of perspective employee candidates for an emerging MNC. A statistic that combats this concern is that 47% of the population in Ireland is between the ages of 15 and 44. An overlapping figure, also, is that Ireland has the youngest population in Europe, with over 40% under the age of 25 years. There should not be much of a big worry as far as the future exchange rate of the Irish Punt. In general it should stay relatively stable with some slight everyday volatility overall. One thing someone may be cautious of is in the near future with regards to the exchange rate. ...

Columbine Should They Restrict Cliques - 398 words
Throughout the country, in each and every school there are cliques the development of cliques is inevitable. While some cliques deliberately exclude people, most cliques include a group of friends who are very close. As a result the people who are left out of a clique feel lonely and angry. Many outsiders are taunting them every day, which only makes them angrier. Eventually these people snap and take their anger out innocent people. The Columbine shooting proves that. To prevent this the high schools need to establish rules, though not to the extreme. The two killers of Columbine High School were excluding from almost all groups.

Shoplifting - 309 words
"If we catch anyone shoplifting, we call the police. Always. We have zero tolerance for shoplifters," said Steve Rice, manager of Dillard's at the Westgate Mall. "We see so much shoplifting, across the board, all ages. It's a real problem." Cpl. Lisa Cherry of the Amarillo police Crime Prevention Unit says when store personnel apprehend a teen for suspected shoplifting, the store detains the teen and calls police. Police take the suspect into custody. The police run a check to see what the offender's status is with the department and evaluates the cost of the merchandise.

American Colonies - 606 words
The New England, Southern and Middle Colonies Developed Differently America was a place for dreams and new beginnings, until white people arrived in 1607. Three groups sailed over the treacherous Atlantic from their cruel lives in England to set up peaceful religious colonies. The only problem is that they attempted to settle in their own way and all failed dismally. The New England, Middle and Southern Colonies grew differently over the period 1619-1760.Examining the three sets of colonies will prove that they were all different: socially, economically, politically but not philosophically. Socially the three groups of colonies developed differently. The New England Colonies life was dominat ...

Religion And Its Effect On Stephen Dedalus - 1,174 words
Religion and Its Effect on Stephen Dedalus Religion is an important and recurring theme in James Joyce's A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man. Through his experiences with religion, Stephen Dedalus both matures and progressively becomes more individualistic as he grows. Though reared in a Catholic school, several key events lead Stephen to throw off the yoke of conformity and choose his own life, the life of an artist. Religion is central to the life of Stephen Dedalus the child. He was reared in a strict, if not harmonious, Catholic family. The severity of his parents, trying to raise him to be a good Catholic man, is evidenced by statements such as, "Pull out his eyes/ Apologise/ Apolog ...

Binge Crinking Is A Problem - 909 words
From one generation to the next, we have seemingly continued this ridiculous practice of "binge drinking". Sure, let's all see who can drink the most, who passes out first, and let's not forget throwing-up? Yes, you haven't experienced the true effects of binge drinking until you've thrown-up all over yourself. But why, why is it that today's generation feels that this is fun? Risking your life to fit in isn't fun. Fun is going to an amusement park or even a baseball game. Unfortunately, college campuses across the nation are preoccupied by this issue of alcohol abuse. Binge drinking in the U.S. is out of control and mostly a problem that our government has produced. It is a byproduct of leg ...

Hemingways Man - 1,451 words
Hemingway's exploration of Man in The Sun Also Rises 'It's really an awfully simple operation, Jig,' the man said. 'It's not really an operation at all.' Much of Hemingway's body of work grows from issues of male morality. In his concise, "Hills Like White Elephants," a couple discusses getting an abortion while waiting for a train in a Spanish rail station bar. Years before Roe v. Wade, before the issues of abortion rights, mothers' rights, and unborn children's rights splashed across the American mass consciousness, Ernest Hemingway assessed the effects of abortion on a relationship, and, more specifically, he examined a man's role in determining the necessity of the procedure and its impa ...
