What Then Is An American Now - 538 words
*Note: This paper was done as a parallel to Jean de Crevecour's "Letters from an American Farmer," published in London in 1782. An American today controls the world. She lives for herself, and is successful. She has a job, not on the farm or with the family, but in the office. She is a college graduate, and is paying on a new car, house, and computer. She also pays for her own washer and dryer, heat and air, even bottled water. The weekends are spent at the gym, where she pays to do work, and at charities, where she goes to luncheons, and donates to the liberation of lab animals. She lives in a suburb, in a house like many others. She is an individual, and pays for the title. Her family is d ...

Drink Industry - 1,949 words
When there is industry there is competition. The bigger the player, the harder they can play. The big players always try to consume many of the small competitors. When they do this they can expand their market share. A perfect example of this is the soft drink industry; Pepsi and Coke have always been archrivals. They are always trying to gain market share, by absorbing many smaller beverage companies to appeal to the public. This paper will discuss the history between these two industry giants and how they financially stand at this point, plus how supply and demand effects this industry. Coca Cola was invented by an Atlanta pharmacist John Pemberton in 1886. His bookkeeper, Frank Robinson, ...

Gulliver - 562 words
In Jonathan Swift's, "Gulliver's Travels," The main character, Gulliver comments on the nature of man and his flaws. The characters that Gulliver reacts with reveal the authors stance on many moral and ethical issues. One of these issues is sin. The author constantly depicts characters as satires upon their real counterparts and often focusing on expressing one sin in particular. The author in particular is extremely critical of one's pride, and chooses to express this flaw in man most often. He begins by showing the absurdity of possessing too much pride with examples from the Lilliputians. The pride that the emperor takes in his name demonstrates the undirected nature of pride. The emperor ...

Wetland Research Paper - 3,053 words
When most people think of wetlands the first thing that will pop into their mind will be visions of swamps and flooded plains. These marshy lands would seem to have no purpose, while in reality they are the most precious form of ecosystem that we have in America. Wetlands contribute to biodiversity, clean water, flood control, and provide a habitat for millions of species of plants and animals. Even with all this wetlands still face mass destruction, much like the rain forests they are just as productive and face similar rates of devastation (Mitchell, J. (1992, October). Our Disappearing Wetlands National Geographic, Pg 15). It really is hard to get someone passionate about a mosquito-infes ...

... ange of matters, which could credibly be vested with sacredness upon collective consent. For him, religion involves the reaffirmation of widely standardized ideas, providing social cohesion and linking the individual to the broader social order. The sacred becomes a real expression embodying the influence of society itself; it is external to the individual, an object of admiration, and has the coercive power to organize and persuade life (Durkheim, 1947). Luckmann (1967) attempted to tap some of this religiosity with his notion of "invisible religions." He argued that a enormous variety of hidden forms of religion consist in society, observed even in such things as industrial norms. When ...

How To: Make A Proper Pot Of Coffee - 1,027 words

Misrepresentations As A Result Of Standardized Testing - 542 words
Tests always make me nervous. The night before a test I can not sleep. Waiting for a professor to pass out a test is like waiting for a jail sentence. When the test is returned and I am expecting a B or better, I see an F, waving back and forth in red ink like an American Flag. With this in mind, I feel like tests are an inaccurate indication of what has been learned. Trying to get through in time, I hurriedly rush through the test. Time is a big problem. When put on a time limit, it takes my mind off the test. I focus mostly on finishing the test in time, not concentrating on essential elements such as punctuation, grammar, mechanics, and content. In most cases I remember concepts only for ...

Water And Markets Economics Essay - 1,130 words
Water is an essential resource and is, fortunately, the most abundant resource on Earth. About three quarters of the Earth is covered by water, including oceans, rivers, lakes and glaciers. Of this water, however, only about three percent is fresh, with the remainder ruined by contamination such as salt and pollution. Australia is the driest inhabited continent on Earth. The country of Australia is made up of mostly dry or desert lands and is classed as semi-arid or arid.
