Video Games & Violence - 1,314 words
In todays society someone is always to blame but oneself. Violent and/or sexual based games have been blamed for misbehavior of todays youth. A persons behavior is rooted in his or her personality, which is mentioned in chapter 7. I agree with the author in saying that it is up to the parents to decide what video games the child plays. Video games have been around for many years now. It really is somewhat of a sub culture. Game genres are action, adventure, fighting, role playing, racing, sports, puzzle, and simulation. These various types can be played on home systems, computers, or hand held devices. Either way it goes, video games are here to stay in pop culture. Game designers, publisher ...

Amish Culture - 1,941 words
The past five weeks in my life have really had an impact on me. In such a short period of time, I have become more aware of the different cultures that exist around the world today. We tend to think that our way of life is the only way there is, or at least the only right way. It is really very ignorant to think that everyone believes and behaves the same way. People should stop being so self-centered and take notice and interest in cultural diversity. There are numerous different cultures in our country alone. One in particular is the Amish culture, which I would like to familiarize you with. The Amish culture consists of many unique beliefs that makes their ways unlike that of any other cu ...

City - 1,332 words
Cities exist for many reasons and the diversity of urban form and function can be traced to the complex roles that cities perform. Cities serve as centers of storage, commerce, and industry. The agricultural surplus from the surrounding country hinterland is processed and distributed within the city. Urban areas have also developed around marketplaces, where imported goods from distant places could be exchanged for the local products. Throughout history, cities have been founded at the intersections of transportation routes, or at points where market goods must shift from one mode of transportation to another such as river or ocean ports as well as railways. Cities are also sites of enormous ...

Positive Changes In The Workplace - 1,255 words
"Hi ho, hi ho, it's off to work we go." So sang the charmingly quirky dwarfs in Disney's Snow White. In many ways they stood for the hopes of mid-century Americans: Hold down a secure job, produce your share of goods or products, do what the boss says, go with the program, and earn enough to support a comfortable lifestyle for yourself and your family. Things haven't really changed all that much--or have they? Only a few of us are currently involved in any type of manual labor or production. In fact, more than 80% of the workforce is in a service position according to most of the information we receive in our Human Resource office. In the past 100 years, the tools of the trade have changed d ...

Soon they would be affordable and small enough for every household to have one. This all became possible with two simple inventions: The transistor and microprocessor. The transistor worked like a vacuum tube. However, it was much smaller and much more affordable. A transistor consists of only a plastic casing containing three fine w ...

There was a loss of communication between human beings, since everyone was molded to think and act the same way. No one had their own opinion. Everyone acted like a robot. The big idea displayed in the book, Fahrenheit 451, was lack of communication. People cant survive if there is no communication going on. Everyone was brainwashed by all the technology that they rarely had time to talk. When they did talk, it was meaningless. Everyone agreed with each other, no one had their own opinion.

Misconception - 634 words
Misconception We often have misconceptions with people. When I was in fifth grade my parents presented me with a new electronic game, called Sega. The reason for that is, because I studied hard and was obedient. The game was placed into the corner of my room next to TV. At that time I was the only child in the family so I was in need of somebody with whom I could play or sit at home when my parents were at work. The only person I have is my cousin Roman who used to visit me a lot. He was older than I am by to years. I had a lot of video games which could be played on Tv.

Electronic Revolution - 996 words
... n) A new revolution called computers is taking the world by storm. Many companies, such as Apple Computer and Tandy, introduced very successful personal computers in the 1970s.

Computers are used in applications as diverse as running a farm, diagnosing a disease, and designing, constructing, and launching a space vehicle. Science is a field in which computers have been widely applied from the start. Because the development of computers has been largely the work of scientists, it is natural t ...

After coming to El Paso at about the age of twelve, I have never experienced that same feeling of closeness my barrio made me feel.

Sadomasochism - 1,858 words
Potential in the Perfect Balance of Fantasy and Reality In her 1998 Seattle Weekly article, You Get Me Closer to God, Lauren Goodlad discusses the medias exploitation of sadomasochism and societys inability to accept it as the norm. She believes that in such a sexually divided and competitive culture, sadomasochism is inevitable, and would not be so perverse if men and women learned to communicate. Goodlad claims that with the increase gaps between genders, everyone is expected to abide by their masculine or feminine roles and this forces them to suppress their true sexual desires. By being daring enough to break these gender rules, the media creates for us fantasies that we are too insecure ...
