Its All In The Family - 1,017 words
A part of family structure is family dynamics, which together create a family unit. Family, by dictionary definition, means the parents and children alone; the children as distinguished from the parents. This reveals how the relationships within the family are important. It is the Parents and Children alone and how they interact that can exhibit a family tie. When a parent and child connect, it starts a thread in the bracelet of that certain family, and, depending on how many bonds there are in the family, shows how tightly woven that bracelet is. The bonds hold the family together. The novel, Pride and Prejudice, by Jane Austen, illustrates a family in which the members tend to have small b ...

Broken Silences - 1,378 words
It was a beautiful day on the open fields of Ireland. A comfortable cottage was the only item dotting the landscape for at least five miles. The door opened, and out stepped a young man. He was not too tall, his blonde hair gathered behind him in a ponytail. His eyes sparkled ever-so-slightly in the morning sun as he stretched with a loud groan. He strode a few steps from the cottage and looked around. It was a great day out. He was dressed comfortably in slightly baggy blue jeans and a black t-shirt, and since no one else was awake, he decided to go for a short walk. The flat fields seemed to go on forever in all directions, but after a few short minutes of walking, he arrived at a hill. It ...

So far this is the only place where there have been virtually no sightings of Atlantis. He believes that the remains of Atlantis lie at the bottom of the of the South China Sea. He also agrees with Plato on how Atlantis was destroyed and also when Atlantis was destroyed. With the location that Santos places this continent, it could explain why so many civilizations have made references to this mysterious is ...

A Bell For Adano - 1,091 words
Whoever had the crazy idea of dyeing Miss Tierney's hair blonde? Had the world gone mad? Whatever the reason, playing the part of an Italian village girl with platinum blonde hair can have done little to further Gene's career, especially since she does not even attempt an Italian accent, and limits herself to mechanically following a dreadful script which does not allow her to develop into any kind of believable character at all. This is a tasteless film in more ways than one: the scriptwriters' patronising depiction of Italian village folk as 'charmingly' primitive, stupid, sycophantic ne'er-do-wells has to be seen to be believed. It is nearly the end of the Second World War, and the Italia ...

Ideal Body - 1,037 words
Several decades ago, consistent research demonstrated stereotypical behavioural and personality traits associated with each of the three somatotypes. These studies suggested that mesomorphic (medium body build) body types were associated with the most favourable traits whereas the heavier endomorphs were associated with being socially aggressive, lazy, and unattractive and the thin ectomorphs were associated with being nervous, socially withdrawn, and submissive. Research has demonstrated that there has been movement away from a preference for an hourglass figure to a less curvaceous and angular shape body (Silverstein, 1986). Correlational research demonstrates the changing ideal of beauty ...

Biography Of John Updike - 1,150 words
... to study it in college. But I am not studying it because I am good at it. I am studying it because I love it. Throughout all of the short stories that I read, I noticed a very consistent style in John Updikes writing. He uses many common methods in all or most of his stories. One of those methods that Updike used very frequently, but also very effectively, was imagery. This is when an author writes something and you can actually see, feel or taste it. In the short story Gesturing the phrase With this ring, I thee wed was used many times. This was done to help you, the reader, picture the love that he has for his wife. Only he doesnt actually realize it until he has lost her in the end of ...

A Summer Day - 902 words
Driving across the bridge over Lake Ray Hubbard one sunny Saturday afternoon, I was overcome with the gentle breeze blowing through my open window and decided to stop for a little while. I pulled off the highway and parked the car. Upon exiting the car, I walked to the edge of the water and sat down. As I sat on the warm sand, I began to pick up handfuls of the sand and let it slowly filter through my open fingers. I also became aware of the activities going on around me. A man to my left was baiting a fishing line with a minnow. Once he had the line baited, he gave a mighty cast of the rod and launched the line into the sparkling water. He then sat down in a green, blue and white striped la ...

Hair Trends - 548 words
Different hairstyles have been around since the beginning of time. In the past four decades hairstyles have changed dramatically. Hair has gone from classy to simple to wild and now to chic.

Janis Joplin - 1,302 words
Blues legend Janis Lyn Joplin was born on January 19th 1943, the eldest child of parents Seth and Dorothy Joplin. Janis was born and raised in the small Southern petroleum industry town of Port Arthur, Texas. Her father was a canning factory worker, her mother a registrar at a local business college. Her non-abberational upbringing coupled with the atmosphere of Port Arthur at the time; generally restrictive, intolerant, and unnurturing must've made even Janis' early childhood difficult. By all accounts, however, Janis seems to have been a "normal" and happy child, who fitted society's usual definition of "pretty". It was in Janis' adolescence that the hang-ups and hassles that were to affec ...

This St. Paul made such a fine mess of the teachings of Jesus, peace blessings be upon him, that he earned for himself the second most coveted position of "The Most Influential Men of History" in the monumental work of Michael H. Hart: The 100 or The Top Hundred or the Greatest Hundred in History. Paul outclasses even Jesus because, according to Michael Hart, Paul was the real founder of present day Christianity. The honor of creating Christianity had to be shared between Paul and Jesus, and Paul won because he wrote more Books of the Bib ...

Doing Gender - 1,714 words
"everyone "does gender without thinking about it" (Judith Lorber, "Paradoxes of Gender, p.13). When I was young I did not think about my gender role. I did not think about the day to day events in my life that effected my gender. When I look back I can find so many instances of gender in my life. So, I am taking one of the smallest instances because of the many ways it relates to not only gender building, but maintaining. As a child I remember very cold winters in Omaha. My sister and I loved to play outside in the snow. So, my parents bought us matching snowsuits. They were pink with lavender trim. My friend, Charlie, who lived up the street, had a snowsuit too. His was black and red with a ...
