Extended Metaphor On Math Class From Hell - 644 words
An Extended Metaphor about why Math Class is Hell It glared at me, mocking me, jeering at me. It silently screamed wicked taunts at my nervous gaze, flawlessly manipulating what made me sweat the most. It knew how to take advantage of my fear, my dread of what awaited. Standing high on the wall, it's demonic face of 12 numbers and twitching hands tortured me with a snide smile. I arduously tried to avoid its evil glare and the way the spherical white face, splashed with ominous black numbers, laughed almost sadistically at my suspense. 1:26 PM it shouted at me, 60 seconds until I was devoured by ...

Character - 401 words
The sun was setting. Far to the east, threatening black clouds arose from the fumes of pollution from the several smokestacks towering over the city. The streets were pocks marked and dented with the recent shower of acid rain. Hot boiling steam from the sewers made the temperature of day much hotter than it really was. Just outside the borders of the city is a lake covered with muck and crude oil spills. Death and despair floated aimlessly on the surface of the unhospitable body of water. Corpses of dead fish, seagulls... bobbed just under the rim of the black slime. The black slime sensing fresh prey, extended it's corrupt and revolting tendrils farther...until it caught another unsuspecti ...

Beowulf - 613 words
Did Beowulf truly obtain the qualities of an epic hero? In the epic poem Beowulf, Beowulf's character traits prove to be the depiction of an epic hero. Beowulf's traits of boastfulness, bravery and amazing strength are the proof of his heroism. Beowulf's boastfulness may not be the most convincing heroic trait, but it certainly was important to the people of his time. Beowulf boasted to Unferth to clarify Unferth's misunderstanding of a swimming event between Beowulf and Breca, in which they swam out to sea and remained there for five nights. Beowulf informed Breca of how they were seperated after five nights in a storm. He boasted of the nine sea monsters he slayed while he floated about. B ...

Hiking The Appalacian Trail - 1,193 words
I remember exactly what I felt as I stepped out of the truck and into the afternoon sunlight. I was at Lehigh Gap, a drop-off point where the Appalachian Trail meets highway 873 near Lehighton. A group of friends and I were being dropped off to begin our three day journey to Eckville, another drop-off point southwest of there. I turned to face the trail and was surprised to see quite possibly the steepest hill I had ever seen. As a matter of pure coincidence, this was the summer of 1999, the year of a terrible draught. Reservoirs were low and water-boiling advisories were in place all across the state. It was also one of the hottest summers on record. By the time we started hiking at nine oc ...

Wuthering Heights Relationships - 1,568 words
Since the dawn of human thought, man has sought to define the relationships between all things surrounding him. He categorizes every living creature, labels every natural element and names every phenomenon. He then connects each object to another with a line and draws the line back to himself. This way, he feels omnipotent, confidently grasping the essence of his world in his hands. Such behavior seems to have peaked in the nineteenth century when many intellectuals around the world were pre-occupied with defining the relationships between man and the society, man and God, man and nature, and man and man. The preservation of order intrigued them and the concept of entropy frightened them. Ma ...

None - 721 words
Only thirty years after the Piedmontese army marched into Rome to unite Italy under one government, the country suddenly found itself on the brink of the twentieth century and a rapidly changing world. The twentieth century would mark the beginning of great changes throughout Europe, and Italy would not be left untouched. What set the stage for these changes, though, were the years just prior to, and directly after 1900. The decade before 1900 can be thought of in terms of its government leaders, most notably, Francesco Crispi. Crispi attempted to lead Italy with administrative reforms and expansion abroad. The 1890s, however, also marked a time of great crisis, as riots over the prices of f ...

It is usually called, simply, the chair and at one time, was in constant use at New Yorks legendary Sing Sing Prison. But, no executions have occurred in New York since 1963, a time when support for capital punishment was eroding across the country.

Yet, in 1994, with the coming of republican Governor George Pataki, an agreement was quickly reached with legislative leaders on a law to revive the death penalty for several categories of murder which included about ten types of homicides. The signi ...

The Campaign For North Africa The Battle Of El Alamein - 1,170 words

General Montgomery planned the battle in three stages: the break in, the dogfight, and the break out. Montgomery planned to use diversionary tactics to indicate that he would attack in the South, drawing forces away from the strongly held North, then massing Allied forces in the North. On 23 October, the break-in phase of the battle began when 1000 British guns opened up along a six mile front in the North. Twenty minutes later, at approximately 10 PM local time, the 30 struck the North, while to the South ...

Aushwitz - 1,352 words
... The scientifically planned crematoria should have been able to handle the total project, but they could not. The whole complex had forty-six retorts, each with the capacity for three to five persons. The burning in a retort lasted about half an hour. It took an hour a day to clean them out. Thus it was theoretically possible to cremate about 12,000 corpses in twenty four hours or 4,380,000 a year. But the well-constructed crematoria fell far behind at a number of camps, and especially at Auschwitz in 1944. In August the total cremation reached a peak one day of 24,000, but still a bottleneck occurred. Camp authorities needed an economic and fast method of corpse disposal, so they again ...

The issue of capital punishment has been an ongoing controversy for many centuries.

Remembering Grandma - 960 words
We pulled into the gravel driveway a punctual half hour before our expected arrival. Great, I thought, an extra hour I would be waste at my grandparents'. Wasn't it good enough that I was spending the entire weekend here? Did we have to get there so soon? When you are thirteen, each minute at your grandparents' is like sitting through an oration of the entire set of the World Book Encyclopedia. Climbing out of the car, my sister and I apathetically walked across the driveway to the brick sidewalk, past the patch of towering sunflowers, and around to the back screen door. As we opened the squeaky door, we passed from the bright sun of a spring day in Pennsylvania onto the back porch of Grandp ...
