Doctor Faustus The Aristotelian Hero - 1,143 words
Heroes envelop the idea of a noble person who fights for the rights of the little people. He or she commits a deed that goes above and beyond the call. This type of hero exists in the modern thought, but there also exists another hero, an Aristotelian Hero. This tragic hero starts out in the nobility of society, yet he just like any other man. This hero has but one fault and that fault, hamartia, is a fatal error or flaw that in the end causes the downfall of the hero. This downfall leads to a catharsis that causes pity and terror in the audience. Doctor Faustus resembles most of Aristotles idea of a hero. He was man like the rest of us in that he was a regular man who was able to rise of a ...

Thurgood Marshall - 841 words
'Thur'oughly 'Good' Thoughts Concerning the U.S. Constitution In Thurgood Marshall's "A Bicentennial View From the Supreme Court", Thurgood Marshall argues that the United States Constitution bicentennial celebration should not be commemorated with narrow views concerning the birth of the document, but rather should be seen as a living document, one which has been dramatically altered to reflect the changing views or society. Born from this ideal, Marshall contends that the Constitution should be placed into perspective with events in U.S. history, which followed its inception. Marshall adds that society should neither view the Constitution as a flawless governmental charter, nor its "framer ...

The focus of the paper will be an examination of Colombia using the "modernization theory." Colombia has sustained a considerable amount of changes with regard to development and modernization. Controlled modernization was a term used to represent how social pressures forced the political elite to take action. Because of the existence of an all but stable political system, there was significant room for the reigning elitists groups to enact needed social changes. The answer to the people's demand has come in the way of reform measures that, while they have received a sponsored backing, have been implemented in a cautious manner. I will discuss development and modernization as they relate to ...

Seeing Tv - 1,844 words
I have watched television on many occasions throughout my life. When I was growing up I watched TV to pass the time on days when I could not go outside, and the whole day I would complain to my parents that, "there is never anything fun to do in the house." As a child I would sit down in the family TV room watching, what I now consider, mindless shows for hours upon end. I did that to relieve the current state of boredom that I was in. Little did I know that those wasted hours I spent in front of a box would shape some of my outlooks on people and life for the future. I did not come upon this realization until I started attending classes in the beginning of this semester. Through the reading ...

This is not a major concern to the speaker of the poem; again, this seems to illustrate a sense of comfort and acceptance of "things as they are." The goings-on of the characters in The Emperor of Ice-cream, are the goings-on of life. Life in the face of death is the tone of this poem, versus the looming agony of death in Dickinson's. If we were to isolate the overall tone of each poem in a few choice words, Dickinson's poem is focused on "There's been" and "There'll be," while attitude of Stevens' poem is best be discovered in the phrase "let be."

Using Irradiation To Make Food Safer For Consumers - 1,089 words
... the product and not in all directions, the electron beam is more efficient. A ten kilowatt beam generator is as powerful as about one-million curies from a cobalt-60 source (Murano 14-15). The electron accelerators produce from five to ten million electron volts and ten to fifty kilowatts (Murano 15-16). The electron beam efficiency can be increased by aiming the beam at a metal target, usually tungsten or tantalum. This produces Bremsstrahlung x-rays. This type of x-ray can penetrate as well as gamma rays, but two-hundred kilowatts would be required to achieve necessary throughput. Irradiation requires different levels of exposure for different tasks. The International System's unit of ...
