When we discuss our brain, we usually focus on the brains ability to think. That task alone is extremely complex and involved, but the brain also has many other tasks. Most of the time the brain is on autopilot, meaning that most of the activities preformed are just automatic. Our five senses; sight, sound, touch, taste, and smell, are automatically preformed in our brains. We don't have to think about how something sounds, we just hear it and we then interpret that sound. The largest area of our brain is the area that is set aside for vision, it is located in the occipital lobe. Dr. Gerard Guarniero has been blind since birth, a defect in which he has never been able to fix. Recently, he ha ...

Wyrd Fate And Geis - 968 words
The old Nordic word 'wyrd', from which the modern adjective 'weird' is derived, is a kind of synonym for 'fate'. Yet unlike the Greek concept - with everything preordained, predestined, fixed, wyrd is dynamic, active, a chaotic interweaving of choices and consequences, and sometimes some very strange twists... which is why it's called 'weird'! Although the basic concepts underlying both wyrd and fate come from the same Indo-European myth group, they've developed in very different ways. In the Greek version, Fate is, well, fatalistic: everything's fixed, predestined. ('Destiny', incidentally, is the Roman version of the same myth, and is essentially the same as that of Fate.) For every indivi ...

Ys In The Hands Of An Ego Tripped Boy - 993 words
Little Toys in the Hands of an Ego Tripped god Well, let me introduce myself; my name is Chris Rodgers and as a child I was rather cleaver and many times extremely squirrelly. Because of that my childhood was even more interesting than most childrens. Many of the toys that characterized my essence when I was in the preteen years were the vintage models of the incredible G.I. Joes, The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Matchbox Cars, and Cabbage Patch Dolls (and yes I did have names for them). Let me talk to you about these toys in a little detail so you can get an idea of why they characterized my childhood so much. As a child I was extremely ill from birth until around 4th grade. Since I had su ...

My Best Friend - 941 words
It is not fully recognizable who your best friend really is until he or she is gone.

Maltese Falcon - 1,613 words
The Portrayal of the Characters in the Maltesse Falcon suffers from transistion to the Huston film. Spade is portrayed to have much more power in the Huston film than in the book. He seems to have more control over Brigid and the whole on going situation. First we see this when we enter the apartment of Spade. In the book we have the feeling that Spades apartment was small, In his bedroom that was his living-room now the wall bed was up,(Pg. 61), this tells us that Spade was living in a bachelor room. Spades room seemed to have an image of simplicity for example no pictures no designs etc. As one of the main images, I got the impression that his room was rented. As we see here, Spade was rep ...

We have done everything together since the day Omar moved to Jerusalem with his family. Omar was only eight back then and full of stories. I especially liked the one about how women mysteriously grew babies in their stomach six month after they get married. Two years after that, we became best friends when Omar showed me one of his fathers adult magazines. We thought that women were really weird back then. We still share that secret to this day. Our friendship became much stronger during the Pales ...
