... religious goal over 2,000 years ago in the Christian Scriptures. Bergman states, "Incidentally, the source of the belief in the equality of man is the Bible, few ancient books espouse this concept, and it is foreign to most non-Christian peoples (6)." Since these concepts are biblical in origin, why are the students not told this? What about the fact that abortion, homosexuality and fornication are talked about in school, but teachers are not allowed to discuss the religious side of the issue, only the side deemed non-religious?

Go Ask Alice - 678 words
I read the book, Go Ask Alice. The author was anonymous. The main character was a girl, and her name was not mentioned. It was written as a diary. I thought that this book was very interesting because it was true; it is based on an actual diary of a fifteen-year-old drug user. In the beginning, she has a break up with her boyfriend and is anorexic. She eats very little. She overcomes that obstacle though. The girl moves because her father gets a job at a university as a professor. She moves with her father, mother, brother Tim and her sister Alex. She has a hard time fitting in at her new school. She hates it. One day though, she meets a girl named Beth. Beth and she talk about boys and drug ...

Beyond these effects, consumption demand is lowered by a reduction in the value of household assetssuch as stocks, bonds, and landthat tends to result from higher long-term interest rates.

A result is upward pressure on the exchange value of the dollar. With flexible exchange rates (rates that fluctuate as ...

Athletics In Elementary - 1,041 words
Nearly every child, at one point or another in its young and impressionable life, has participated in athletics. Beneath the purity of athletics and recreation, however, lies an overwhelming attitude, such as the win-at-all cost coaches and overbearing parents that have turned this innocent recreational activity into a nightmarish hell for some young participants. It has left many wondering if youth athletics is a helpful or a harmful stage in a childs life. Conventional wisdom tells us that the greatest reward obtained by sport participation is how it enhances ones growth physically. A valid point, yes, but that cannot be the only reason.

The Drug Debate - 945 words
For over twenty years the drug debate has been argued over and over. The drug war in the United States has been historically seen as a costly, yet necessary component of public policy; a policy that has been under substantial political fire for years. As we enter a new century, many are reconsidering their feelings towards the drug war. Critics cite the billions of dollars spent every year as well as the overflowing prison problem as reasons to cut back, and even legalize some or all recreational drugs. Those who are in favor of the war on drugs encourage its funding and continuation because of the perceived link between drugs and crime, and the detrimental health effects and medical economi ...
