The Analysis Of Ode To The West Wind - 644 words
Mr. Jackson, seeing as you have been found guilty of murder in the first degree by the citizens of the Great Republic Of Texas, I have no choice but to sentence you to death by means of lethal injection, to be administered by a state-appointed prison medical technician within 90 days' time. But I'll have you know, Mr. Jackson, that as harsh as this punishment may seem, trust me when I tell you that it hurts the state of Texas much more than it hurts you. I must say, I can hardly believe the lack of gratitude you have shown the State of Texas, especially after it worked its fingers to the bone to give you every possible advantage in life. We put you through 12 years of school. We gave you roa ...

Wind Power - 385 words
Wind energy is an unlimited source of energy. Many countries, including the United States, use wind energy to some degree. Wind turbines generate electricity by spinning in the wind. There are two main types of wind turbines: the horizontal axis variety and the vertical axis design. The horizontal type is the more common which looks like a traditional windmill. Electricity generated from wind turbines is fed into a local utility grid and distributed just like ordinary electricity. Some wind turbines are twenty stories tall and have propellers that could cover a football field. A wind turbine of this size generates enough electricity to power 1400 homes. All wind turbines are comprised of the ...

A Waif In The Wind Of Obsessive Corruption - 1,800 words
A Waif in the Wind of Obsessive Corruption! A professor once asked me to write an essay on what I thought was the philosophy of life. Assuming money was no object, and society permitted it, what would I consider my garden? Not giving it much thought, I threw together what I thought would suffice. Later, upon giving it considerable thought, I realized I truly had no opinion on the subject. My mother once told me that the meaning of life was in fact, life itself. She said that the ability to live and make our own destinies come true was the real reason behind our existence. However, society plays a large part in what we consider an ideal life. As children, were taught to conform, strive for su ...

... the end, Candide has come to learn the harsh lesson that Voltaire is putting forward (2). Having been subject to various calamities and philosophies, he finally gets it! The point is that though society, including Lady Cunegonde, may be corrupt, we (as individuals of free choice) must cultivate our garden (Voltaire 120). Garden, in this context, is a metaphor for whatever the reader considers an ideal situation. Voltaire is trying to say that the goodness of Providence is the only asylum in which man can take refuge (Bell 2). In Forrest Gump, Robert Zemeckis used Forrest in much the same way that Voltaire used Candide. Its like Candide in the way that its an unabrasive satire of the idi ...

Wind Symphony - 368 words
The Wind Symphony preformed on Monday, October 11 at 8:00 p.m. at the Walton Arts Center in Baum-Walker Hall. The performance lasted one hour and thirty minuets and consisted of six pieces. The first piece was Variations for Wind Band by Ralph Vaughn Williams. All the instruments tuned to the oboe then they started the English piece. The Bass and symbols came in first and was very loud. The song reminded me of the movie ''Raiders of the Lost Ark.'' The feeling was mysterious and I liked it. The second piece was "Chester" Overture for Band by William Schuman. This American song moved very fast with a lot of clarinet and flute for the melody. I liked this song because it was patriotic. The thi ...

Rachel's Quest for independence I think Rachel was looking for the ways for her independence and willing to protect Bert during the trial. Rachel believed that Bert was innocent.

Rachel said to Bert, "Bert, why don't you tell `em it was all a joke? Tell `em you didn't mean to break a law, and you won't do it again." This clearly shows that she was worried about him and wanted to help him. But she knew that what he had done was bad. And she was also quite sure that he would not win the trial a ...

Wind is one of the most destructive forces of our environment. Just recently we have seen the effects of two massive hurricanes in Florida of the United States. Houses torn down, uprooted trees and smashed cars are just some of the damage these two caused. Lives have also been lost due to these roaring monsters and theres a third brewing again. Theres also tornadoes, also known as twisters, which also occur frequently in the US. The aftermath of them is basically the same except for the face that tornadoes are further inland. They can do some extraordinary things, such as pick up small pieces of debris, like money, and even living creatures like fish and deposit them on another continent. Wi ...

Should A Wind Farm Be Built At Gunson Height? - 1,658 words
Should Permission be Given for a Wind Farm at Gunson Height? Hills rolling across the countryside, lush green fields for miles, dozens of walk paths to appreciate the beautiful scenery, used by families for picnics and days out, as well as hikers wanting a view worth walking miles to. Or a piece of rugged, unspectacular England that is just like seven thousand other walks in the country? Dozens of 30M tall hideous steel contraptions, cutting blades slicing through the air and making the noise equivalent to an oncoming car.

The Crucible And Inherit The Wind - Injustice - 531 words
Both Cates, in Inherit the Wind by Lee and Lawrence, and Procter, in The Crucible, by Arthur Miller, are both subjected to unjust laws. Both demonstrated that , "if the law is of such a nature that it requires one to be an agent of injustice toward another, then I say break the law," as stated by Henry David Thoreau. When a law is put into effect that will convict a person who is a free thinker then it is a unjust law. One might as well break it because if no one stands up for the principle then than law will stay in effect until adverted again. In The Crucible, John Proctor, a farmer and village commoner, stood up for his principles. He had committed adultery and had absolutely no intention ...

In the play Inherit the Wind by Jerome Lawrence and Robert E. Lee, the defense faces numerous societal injustices, which is why they never had a chance to win the case.

Who Has Seen The Wind - The Godlessness Of Formal Religions - 679 words
The essence of God isn't found in today's formal religions. It is evident throughout the novel Who Has Seen the Wind that author W.O. Mitchell intrinsically believes and wishes to convey this message. He states that the prairie is nature in it's simplest form, complete onto itself, and that the religious structure of today's "God" is simply made up by people to ease their pain and fears. Underlying everything is the sense that we as human beings don't really know where we're going, or for that matter, where we're coming from, in our search for God and the truth. W.O. Mitchell sees the prairies as the basic fundamental unit of nature. "Here was the least common denominator of nature, the skel ...

Divine Wind - Racism - 540 words
The Divine Wind describes an Australia that is tarnished by racism, hatred and distrust, and yet the novel ends on an optimistic note. Do you agree? The novel is set during a World War. The tension and separation of races during a war seemed evident in Australia. As a multicultural country including Japanese and Aborigine population, conflicting attitudes towards these races had to be imminent. I entirely agree with the above statement due to the unequal treatment of the aborigines, tension between the Japanese population and characters such as Hart showing lack of trust over his lover Mitsy With a war against the Japanese was the trigger for racism in Australia. All throughout the novel ele ...

So those places which have different latitudes receive unequal heading by the sun, and that is the fundamental reason of producing wind...' One afternoon of early winter, the geography teacher systematically talks on why we have wind, bringing a lot of sound of making notes. Suddenly, a gust of wind blew the window open, like an unexpected guest, gently touched my face, and I realized I was absent of mind. Then you were indeed absent of mind just now? Oh, well yes. What were you thinking about then?

The Theme of Inherit the Wind The theme of Inherit the Wind by Jerome Lawrence and Robert Lee is the right to think. One example that supports the theme is that Drummond tries to prove Bert Cates is on trial because he uses his right to think. Drummond asks Howard's opinion on morality, so he can establish that "anyone in this courtroom . . . has the right to think" (64). Drummond tells the jury that Cates didn't commit a crime by teaching evolution and shouldn't be penalized because "he chooses to speak what he thinks" (64). Drummond wants the to convince the jury that Cates is going to be deprived of his right to think if he is found guilty. Another example that supports the theme is that ...

Run Like The Wind: A Geographical Look At Kenyan Supremacy In Long Di - 1,099 words
In East Africa, there is an area know as the Great Rift Valley. It is in this Great Rift Valley, where the world's most dominant long distance runners come from, Kenya. In the past three decades, runners from Kenya have simply dominated the sport of long distance running in all facets including cross-country, track, and the marathon.

With this in mind, the prospect of making $10,000 a year as a second or third-rank runner is very nice to most young Kenyans. "The availability, first of U.S. college scholarships and now prize money and appearance fees, has had a demonstrable effect in boosting interest and participation throughout the country."(Entine, 3) As runners train and compete in worldwide races, they quickly accumulate wealth and fame in their home country. With this talk of poverty like conditions there is some information that should be known about Kenya before moving on. Kenya, compared with other Afric ...
