Anheuser-Busch Companies, Inc. continually seeks opportunities to maximize shareholder value and increase efficiency. Through their extremely effective marketing strategies A-B has gained control of over 47% of the global market share. In the process of doing this, Anheuser-Busch has become one of the most recognizable trademarks. This is not without its faults though. Anheuser-Buschs aggressive advertising campaign has targeted more than who they bargained for. Through A-Bs catchy advertisements, they have attracted customers other than the 21+ age group, and recreational drinkers.

Ophelia - 672 words
A grieving widow is desolate. An African American slave is tortured. A concubine is mistreated. These three victims of circumstances that they could not control are pitied. So are there any foundations based on whether one should pity another? The Oxford Dictionary defines pity as the sorrow for anothers suffering or misfortune. In Shakespeares Hamlet, Ophelia rouses the pity of the audience because she is controlled, manipulated, abandoned, driven to insanity, which eventually leads to her atrocious death. Ophelia was completely controlled, flagrantly used, and verbally abused by the dominant men in her life: Polonius, Laertes, and Hamlet. Laertes was blatantly unsympathetic towards her rel ...

Creationism Vs Evolution - 1,016 words
Evolution is not only improbable but clearly impossible. Extensive evidence against evolution is uncovered with every major scientific discovery. Every evolutionist "fact" can easily be rebuked by creationists. Twelve supposed hominoids have been discovered and presented as supporting evidence to evolution. While in all actuality nine of the twelve supposed hominids are actually extinct species of ape. While the remaining three are completely developed humans. Neanderthals were once considered pre-humans by evolutionists but recent studies have shown that the Neanderthals are completely developed humans (Homo sapiens) suffering from bone diseases caused by vitamin D deficiency.

Capital Punishment - 814 words
In the past, people have invariably felt that if they had been wronged in some way, it was his or her right to take vengeance on the person that had wronged them. This mentality still exists, even today, but in a lesser form because the law has now outlined a person's rights and developed punishments that conform to those rights, yet allow for the retribution for their crime. However, some feel that those laws and punishments are too lax and criminals of today take advantage of them, ie. organized crime, knowing very well that the punishments for their crime, whether it be murder, theft, or any other number of criminal activities, will be so negligible that it may be well Although in the pas ...

Death Penalty - 812 words
Capital punishment is an extremely controversial issue in todays society. Many Americans support it and, in turn, many also appose it tremendously.

Those who support capital punishment believe that the people who are on death row and incapable of retribution and deserve the ultimate punishment for their wrong doings. The fight between the moralities of capital punishment is also used to support and oppose the view of both sides. Capital punishment is one public issue ...

Antiabortion - 1,040 words
Abortion in America is a controversial issue in which both sides have valid arguments at face value. The pro-choice side has many arguments to support it belief in keeping abortion legal. Many of these are faulty, and argue point's irrelevant to the issue, as I will attempt to illustrate, thereby eliminating the main pro-choice arguments.

Communism The Ideal Society - 1,307 words
Society is flawed. There are critical imbalances in it that are causing much of humanity to suffer. I suppose that this would be the driving force behind humanity's relentless search to plan and create a perfect society. An essential part of having an unflawed society would be having a perfect government. Throughout history, we have always strived to find different types of governments that would work more efficiently and more fairly for the greater good of masses. Needless to say, communism is not often revered as an "ideal" form of government. There is almost a unanimous sense of hatred that is emitted from all non-communist countries when the topic of communism is brought up. Many countri ...

Hinkley And The Insanity Defense - 1,375 words
The Effect of John Hinckley Jr. on the Insanity Defense The insanity defense has always been a very controversial issue in the United States. Many people do not believe that by being classified as insane is a viable excuse for committing a crime, especially one as heinous as murder. There are many opponents to the use of the insanity plea because they feel that those who are found not guilty by reason of insanity are not punished for their criminal actions. Over time there have been several changes made to the defense plea, but it was not until the assassination attempt on President Ronald Reagan by John Hinckley, Jr. that the insanity defense came under high scrutiny in the United States an ...

... wrong. This was taught in the oldest Christian document known, written in 70CE, it read: "You shall not kill by abortion the fruit of the womb and you shall not murder the infant What it says, is simply that abortion is as wrong as the killing of a child (infanticide). But St. Augustine (1st century) had declared that the soul was planted in the foetus, by God, on day 46. Thomas Aquinas (13th century) preached that the souls of humans were planted, by God, at day 90 for girls and day 40 for boys. Therefore Catholics had believed that, as long as abortion was carried out before the soul was present in the foetus, it was not morally wrong. Now in the present day Catholics believe abortion ...

Creation Cloning As An Alternative - 1,131 words
God created a man, and from one of his ribs, he created a woman. Then, the two of them created a new life. This was all naturally done. It was God's most wonderful creation. Cloning brings up a life dilemma. Cloning puts in a single or a group of individuals the power of creating and granting life. And this is done by basically duplicating one individual, by creating a twin of somebody else. Furthermore, cloning is a life dilemma because it makes the whole human race to choose one more time between right and wrong. The first thing that must be cleared up is what is cloning and what is a clone. The biological definition of clone is "an organism that has the same genetic information as another ...

Regardless of how barbaric it may be, the electric chair should remain the source of execution used by the state of Florida. It has served as a valid execution tool for the last seventy-five years and there is no reason why it should not continue to do so. In the editorial, New Old Sparky isnt Acceptable, Earl Maucker suggests that electrocution should be replaced with lethal injection. He talks about how lethal injection is more technologically modernized and more humane for that matter. Secondly, it is stated that five out of seven Florida Supreme Court justices have urged lawmakers to consider an alternative method to execution in 1997. Furthermore, thirty-two states are currently using l ...

Pro Death Penalty - 1,534 words
The practice of putting certain convicted felons to death is a precedent that dates far back to early civilization. Unfortunately, it has become a very controversial issue in the United States over the last century. The death penalty was put into place for a number of reasons, but the biggest being the deterrent effect of capital punishment. Some would say that the death penalty does not deter murder. In 1985, economist Stephen K. Layson at the University of North Carolina published a study that showed that every execution of a murderer deters, on average, 18 murders. The study also showed that raising the number of death sentences by one percent would prevent 105 murders. However, only 38 p ...

BINGE-EATING THAT PLAGUES ADULTS NOW RECOGNIZED AS A DISORDER Many people binge once in a while, like at the holiday season or even just stress related. But when you do it constantly it gets to be a problem. Specialist Karen Eselson Belding says, "Binge-eating disorder is when an individual repeatedly consumes extremely large quantities of food-several thousand calories at a time-in an effort to cope with whatever is bothering them emotionally, like depression, grief of boredom." This disorder affects 2% to 5% of Americans. It is way more widespread than anorexic or bulimic. Most binge-eaters let food control their lives.

Should Smoking Be Banned In Public Places - 698 words
Smoking or Non-SmokingShould There Be A Choice? Imagine sitting in a restaurant unable to enjoy a meal due to the cloud of smoke coming from a neighbors table. The fact that there was not a designated area for smokers has put the smoker and the non-smoker in an uncomfortable situation. Smoking should be banned in public places because non-smokers have a right to clean air, and because second hand smoke is more dangerous than actually smoking a cigarette. However, smoking should not be banned in public places because it is the smokers choice to smoke just as it is the non-smokers choice not to smoke. President Clinton is quoted saying that Weve got to do more to protect people in public place ...
