Sexism In The Twenty First Century - 618 words
One of the most important skills to learn if you want to be a successful writer is to know your audience. Know your audience and speak to it. If you're writing for the usual mix of civilization, your audience will be roughly half male and half female. With this in mind, the successful writer is not likely to ignore half of that audience by writing exclusively to one gender or the other. Nonsexist writing is an issue that used to be hotly debated and is now being widely accepted. Most of the resistance to nonsexist writing was based in the idea that "everyone knows that he means he or she." Well, he does not mean she and it never has. Using the male gender entirely in writing now seems less a ...

Human Nature - 1,263 words
Nature has been around since the beginning of all time. Nature has even been here since long before the dinosaurs. People have been brought up and have lived off of nature and its nourishments. Nature is a wonderful yet dangerous thing. It can be as gentle as a breeze on a warm summer day or as deadly and ferocious as a violent hurricane in a populated city. Although man has lived through many tragic and deadly natural disasters, man has always been trying to grasp a hold of and capture a victory over anything that is disturbing. Once a philosopher named Charles Darwin described nature as, Survival of the fittest. Darwin was describing the natural evolution and how nature is always in contro ...

The Misdiagnosis of Attention Deficit Disorder ADD is a disorder that is very challenging to diagnose because the symptoms can be varying in number and intensity can show a positive diagnosis. Even the official scale of DSM-IV (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders); created and updated by the American Medical Association; can be questioned for validity. In the past ten years there have been many studies done on the problems of over-diagnosis and over-prescription. Because it is found in 3%-5% of children over the age of seven it is believed that clinical psychologists are not being precise in there diagnosis. Ritalin is being prescribed to anyone who might have a few of the ...

Classification Essay - 1,104 words
Poised motionless near the back door of the twentieth-century, we ponder memories of the past with a daydreaming stare. Before we turn off the lights and lock the doors of the twentieth-century, we take one last look through the century in which we were nurtured and our world lived for so long. The deep engraved scratches upon the walls of the twentieth century serve to jog our national memory to painful events as well as amazing accomplishments. After much reflective thought, we began to grasp how much our world has changed from when we first entered the front door of the twentieth century over ninety-nine years ago. America and much of the world have been industrialized, modernized, urbani ...

Advertising messages are in all environments from grocery stores and streets to hospitals, bedrooms, classrooms and churches. Then there are movies, television, music videos and the like, which all add unprecedented commercial and symbolic saturation to our lives. Secularism, humanism, materialism, commercialism, and consumerism are the forces enabling pop cultural trends to successfully resist the positive counterculture pressures of Christian ethics that once preserved our national values. Nothing is sacred anymore. Insofar as our r ...

Cloning - 1,398 words
The biological definition of a clone is an organism that has the same genetic information as another organism or organisms ("Cloning", 1997). From this definition and from information about the science behind cloning, my current view on cloning is that it is ethical. This statement ignores information about how we can misuse cloning and what consequences occur when the procedure is unsuccessful. I currently do not think cloning should be used until it is perfected. I doubt however that we will allow cloning to be misused, and think most people would probably have this opinion on cloning, but their lack of knowledge on cloning, or their belief that cloning would be misused, is the reason for ...

Seidler - 1,582 words
For centuries men and women have been divided over which characteristics have belong to which sex. Men have been associated with power and knowledge, working in top positions. Men are expected to be responsible and take control in any situation. Women, on the other hand, were linked with staying at home, taking care of the children and being emotional, as well as asking for help. Victor Seidler, in Language and Masculinity explores how the suspension of emotions in the masculine world is observed. In the writings of David Gilmore, Performative Excellence: Circum Mediterranean, and Nawal El-Saadawi, Love and Sex in the Life of the Arab, the authors discuss how a mans masculinity is affected w ...

The Peruvian Society - 784 words
Much to my surprise, the Peruvian society consists of a distinct and diverse culture, one, which would not be envisioned for the current twenty-first century. It is a society in which I, as an American, look at as unusual and peculiar. This course has opened my eyes to something way beyond my comprehension of a society living today. In the article I have found describing Peru as A State of Decay, I discovered what the ideal Peruvian family lives like in todays society. Until the 1950s, most rural families in Peru lived in one-room houses. These houses were built from twigs and the roofs were made of grass or palm thatch. Those who lived in the cities lived in overcrowded and unsanitary slums ...

Alcohol - 461 words
Should alcohol production, sale, and consumption be prohibited? I think not. For hundreds of years, man has had choices choices pertaining their food intake, their living quarters, and their life mates. Whether or not to consume alcohol has been a choice that man has had through recent history and is a choice which I believe should remain just that a choice. There has been only one period of history where alcohol purchase and consumption was limited. During the 1920s, specifically 1920 to 1933 (and 1917 to 1919 in Canada) beverages such as beer, gin, rum, whiskey, and wine were forbidden to manufacture, sell, or transport. Supporters of prohibition believed alcoholic beverages endangered m ...
