Even If Youre On The Right Track Youll Get Run Over If You Just Sit There - 389 words
If you're on the right track, then you have thrust yourself to run. In other words, you are going the right way, but you have to push yourself to the goal you want to reach. I think that the quote, "Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there," relates to setting goals. There are a couple of steps you must complete before you precede on to what you desire. A goal is like a pyramid; you have to start out with something simple down at the base, and gradually build your way up to the top. Relating to the quote, each step you come over the track is one more step to reach what you think is most valuable to you. The first step to decide what's important. Try to fin ...

Study Of Thomas Paine - 1,402 words
For many years Thomas Paine was the epitome of American histories greatest drawback. In American history there is always that one detail that doesnt make it into popular curriculum. Whether it be the point of view from the loosing side of a war, to the secret dalliances of a popular politician, to the truth of a times social opinion- the American student is taught only so much. The most proper, popular material makes it in; along with any major facts too commonly known to ignore. Anything else is liable to fall to the wayside without enough support from historians or academia. There is always room for the improvement of materials taught; so said, it would seem there is much more to know abou ...

Sound Progressexxon Valdez 5 Pgs - 1,265 words
The Exxon Valdez oil spill in the Prince William Sound of Alaska proved to be a disaster on many levels. The coastline, wildlife, and people of the all area were all devastated by the spill. Ten years later, the area is showing remarkable progress. Because of the cleanup efforts and new regulations, the Sound is getting ever closer to recovery. A few minutes after midnight on March 24, 1989, the T/V Exxon Valdez ran aground on Bligh Reef in Prince William Sound.

... vironments than do smaller animals. Larger animals are safer from predators than small animals are, but it is also harder for them to sustain in trying conditions. Many of the larger animals such as mammoths and bison travel in herds, and that, along with their large size, protects them from predators. However, when the predator is Mother Nature, there is virtually no defense. For modern day elephants, drought is the biggest concern. It can take twenty percent of a herd every year, but the elephants continue to exist (Ward, 1997). It would have been harder though, for the mammoths and mastodons to survive a drought. Because of their size and weight, the Ice Age Proboscidea had longer ges ...

Jimi Hendrix - 1,690 words
On November 27, 1942, Jimi Hendrix was born as John Allen Hendrix in Washington at Seattle General Hospital. His childhood was not a privileged one, however, he did indulge himself in one particular way: Jimi loved to play the guitar. At first he played an old acoustic, and later a cheap Silvertone electric, which were both strung for a lefty on a right-handed guitar, one of the defining Hendrix traits (Murray 34- 5) . As a teenager, young Jimi listened to the music which affected his music so greatly later: everyone from Buddy Holly to Muddy Waters and through Chuck Berry way back to Eddie Cochrane (Wilmer 38). He played in a few bands in high school, but then dropped out before his senior ...

My whole Electric Ladyland album is about them (Fairchild, Electric Ladyland 5). Some of the songs on Electric Ladyland, such as Crosstown Traffic and the cover of Bob Dylans song All Along the Watchtower, mark a departure from the Jimi Hendrix established by Axis: Bold As Love. Crosstown Traffic is more along the vein of songs included in Are You Experienced? and Hendrix was frustrated that it was released as a single. See, that LP was in certain ...

Kerouac A Failure In His Own Eyes - 1,302 words
Jack Kerouac was the spark that started the flame of the Beat Generation though, through his own eyes, he felt like a failure. Jack keyed the term beat generation in a conversation with John Clellon Holmes, another of the beat generation poets, in 1948 (). The Beat Generation might not have happened without the help of Jack. What formed him into the blunt writer that he was, was his loving family, the death of his brother, movies, college, and newfound friends. Jack Kerouac, baptized Jean Louis Lebris de Kerouac, was born to Lou and Gabrielle Ange LEvesque on March 12, 1992 in Lowell, Massachusetts. Jack had two older siblings: brother Gerard, five years older than [whom he looked up to], an ...

Colored People - 1,563 words
Integration was a main theme or topic in this memoir. It played an important role in the time when Gates was growing up and had a big affect on him throughout his book. Integration changed the way Gates viewed, whites, blacks, restaurants, hairstyles, church, school, etc. He went from a conformist to a rebel to an Episcopal. His community changed with him and the older generation of course did not take to integration as well as most of the younger generation did. Integration was considered a good thing to most people and others believed that Blacks had lost something through the whole ordeal. They believed that they had lost the close knit family ties that segregation indirectly created. Gat ...

Street Lawyer - 502 words
The most common tale we hear of lawyers today is one of fast-rising, high-billing, no-feeling type of lawyers. Most people overlook the lawyers that do pro-bono work. (That is work for free for the charity of those who can't afford it.) Michael Brock started off as another lawyer who was on the fast track to partnership in a large firm with big billing habits. One day his life was changed forever after being held hostage by and seeing the death of a homeless man who was evicted by his firm.

Society Is Evil - 427 words
Humans are both good and evil. I heard somebody say that society makes you evil, but I dont agree. Society labels you as evil. Con-artists are at first seen as good, but if you look deeper theyre evil. For some people who are retarded or mentally unstable, they could also be seen as evil. But their only intentions are to bee good. I mean if you just sit down and have a conversation with somebody from special ed. their just full of love and joy.

I tend to daydream continuously. I can sit in a class a drift off to a different world or some future event in my life. In my mind I have the ability to do anything. If I wont to be the hero, I imagine it. If I wont to win the girl, I can. If I wont to tell off the ass hole I didnt have the guts to confront earlier, I do it in the silence of my mind. In my head there are no variables, there is only certainty, and I control everything. When daydreaming I believe I have different levels of consciousness. A daydream that will remain clearest in my memory will be the one that I get completely lost in. These daydreams range from seconds to many minutes. I tend to start by staring at something and ...

... ns throughout the course of the story. The last words of the book reinforce this continued loathing- " 'And only Kurimoto is left.' As if spitting out all the accumulated venom on the woman he took for his enemy, Kikuji hurried into the shade of the park." I think that it can safely be concluded that this is one aspect of his past that Kikuji will never change his position on. As Chikako cleans the cottage, "The sound of her broom became the sound of a broom sweeping the contents of his skull, and her cloth polishing the veranda a cloth rubbing at his skull." This extraordinary metaphor gives us great insight into Kikuji's attitude towards his past and his memories. There are two contrad ...

How To Rejuvenate A Mature Business - 1,174 words
The last two decades has seen a revolution in management accounting theory and practice due to the challenges of the competitive environment in the 1980s. Kaplan and Johnson (1987) identified the failings and obsolescence of existing cost and performance measurement systems which led to re-examination of traditional cost accounting and management control systems. Conventional financial and management accounting methods have developed primarily as a result of corporate legislation in the 1930s forcing companies to provide externally published financial accounts. Management accounting is primarily focused as a decision making tool for running a business, hence they require more flexibility. Ac ...

David P. Cook created the first Blockbuster Video store in October 1985 in Dallas, Texas. Mr. Cook intended to establish " video superstores" that would respond to the on going trends in the video industry during the 1980's because the number or households buying VCRs was increasing very much and so was the number of film titles. He wanted to create a store that would respond to the customer's needs such as: nice facilities, wide selections of videos, fast service, and convenience. A computer system was developed so that the company was able to track specific demographic data, customer's renting patterns, and the number of times a cassette has been rented, and the information was collected t ...

Selecting Accounting Software is one of the most important and, potentially, one of the most costly decisions a business makes. The decision is important because if the right choice is made, internal control of most accounting functions will provide a lower risk of doing business. An accurate method of keeping track of the essential financial functions of the business also will result. However, the decision could be costly if it is made without a thorough evaluation of the current and future needs of the business as well as the establishment of an effective method of determining which software package best meets the requirements of the business.
