Human Nature - 1,263 words
Nature has been around since the beginning of all time. Nature has even been here since long before the dinosaurs. People have been brought up and have lived off of nature and its nourishments. Nature is a wonderful yet dangerous thing. It can be as gentle as a breeze on a warm summer day or as deadly and ferocious as a violent hurricane in a populated city. Although man has lived through many tragic and deadly natural disasters, man has always been trying to grasp a hold of and capture a victory over anything that is disturbing. Once a philosopher named Charles Darwin described nature as, Survival of the fittest. Darwin was describing the natural evolution and how nature is always in contro ...

Jsp Profiling - 1,307 words
NEW JERSEY STATE POLICE RACIAL PROFILING Racial profiling is a law enforcement strategy that encourages police officers to stop and question African Americans simply because of their race. Although not raised as a major issue in the courtroom during the trial of the four police officers who shot Amadou Diallo (who were acquitted in February), racial profiling is often employed by police, officially and unofficially, and was likely a factor in the police shooting of Diallo. Racial profiling took off during the highly publicized explosion of crack cocaine in inner-city neighborhoods in the 1980s, which bolstered the perception of drugs as a black problem -- even though statistics showed most c ...

An Overview Of The Gold Rush - 1,719 words
California has always been associated with cutting edge development and ideas. For over a century and a half it has been the leader of what the rest of the country follows.

It was what brought hundreds of thousands of Americans and immigrants alike to the fast-paced, ever-changing world of California. To fully understand the history of the Goldrush, one must know what was actually happening before the lure of gold overwhelmed the country. In 1844, John C. Fremont ordered the ...

Hthen Ireland Catholic And Protestant Fears In The 1930s - 1,074 words
By the end of the 1930's the Northern State had existed for almost two decades, as had its Southern counterpart. During this time the two states set themselves up in a way that seemed to justify the fears that both communities, Catholic and Protestant had when the possibility of Home Rule was first talked about in the 1880's. The Northern state was one where the Protestant majority was in power and treated the Catholic minority as a threat, thus realising the fears of that community. The South had become an agrarian state with little industry and a constitution that enshrined the power of the Catholic Church thus proving the Protestant mantra that "Home Rule equals Rome Rule" In 1910, John R ...

... feed." (Amaral 23) For instance, in 1880, only 520 acres of hay were cut in the entire state. Horses and cattle simply roamed and many were never claimed in the annual roundups. Ranchers even turned horses out during periods of drought, when they had little of no feed. The horses would then range for feed, and eventually join together to form bands. As long as horses were loosely ranged they were constant attractions to the wild herds. A rancher named Wilkinson turned out fifteen hundred mares on Diamond A Range of Elko county to range for the winter. When he and his crew returned that spring to collect them, they found that many had joined the wild herds and were virtually impossible to ...

A Look At Identity - 1,495 words
Identity is a set of characteristics by which an individual is recognizable. As time passes each identity is individually shaped by these characteristics. At an early age, parents start the identity process by giving their children names. It is in fact your parents that truly shape your identity. If your parents were aggressive people who rarely paid attention to you, it's possible that you could wind up being a school bully or something along those lines. It's quite frightening when you think about it. By not having "good" parents it is feasible to have an under developed identity. I also think that identity has to do with where you were raised. This may sound silly, but let me explain. Awh ...
