Dont You Dare Read This Mrs Dunphery - 1,070 words
I almost wrote Dont you dare read this Mrs. Dunphrey by your name, but just out of habit. But it would be pretty stupid to send you a letter and not let you read it right? Before you get too excited about me writing, I should let you know that this is a assignment. Not for school but from my family therapist that Matt, Mom and I have been seeing every week.(Thats right Mom, I explain.)The therapist, Mr. Sarcusi says that showing your feelings is healthy. He says after everything that has happened, I have a reason to feel betrayed. He also said that all teenagers feel betrayed anyway. He told to write about myself and pretend I was talking to someone that didnt know my whole life story. I tho ...

Dare - 325 words
I feel very good about the DARE program because it helps people to know what drugs can do to you and ways to say no to people that offer you drugs and alcohol. It also tells people that drugs dont really make you look cool especially what it does to your teeth, that doesnt look too cool. And cigarette ads dont tell you that they are addictive or that every puff takes seven seconds away from your life, that is why most people that smoke have shorter lives, but the DARE program tells you that kind of stuff. Thats why the DARE program is a good program, it teaches you the things that will happen to you if you try drugs. What I have learned in DARE that could help me stay drug-free and avoid vio ...

Dare Essay - 330 words
The D.A.R.E. program has been very interesting, fun and important for me this year. It is so important to stop children before they start using drugs or using violence to solve their problems. The D.A.R.E. program is taught in all fifty states and all different countries. It has been in effect since 1983 and I believe it is a very good and helpful program. The information we learned, taught me how risky it is to just try out drugs, cigarettes or alcohol. I learned that alcohol doesn't only hurt the one who is doing the drinking. I also learned that there are many ways to say, "No to Drinking". Mixing alcohol with other drugs or medication is also unhealthy. Then I learned that alcohol slows ...

All Quiet On The Westren Front - 5,580 words
All Quiet on the Western Front Chapter SummaryBy: Jesse CodyAll Quiet on the Western Front is an anti-war novel from the opening chapters. Many critics of the novel in the early days after the publication of the novel blamed Remarque for writing for shock value. They did not want to believe his novel represented the truth about World War I. In many ways, such people were like Paul's schoolmaster, Kantorek. They wanted to cling to classical, romantic notions of war. However, Remarque wrote his novel specifically to shatter those idealistic illusions. Yes, he wrote to shock, but he also wrote to educate.The young teenage men who enlisted in the army on both sides often never recovered from th ...

Japanese Work Ethics Vs American Work Ethics - 2,021 words
Japanese Work Ethics vs American Ethics "For an American to consider the Japanese from any viewpoint for any reason, it is important for us to remember that they are products of a unique civilization, that their standards and values are the results of several thousand years of powerful religious and metaphysical conditioning that were entirely different from those that molded the character, personality and habits of Westerners" ( De Mente, p.19). To understand the Japanese, it is necessary to have an understanding of their religious and philosophical backgrounds. My research suggests that basic ethical values in Japanese business systems are influenced by three philosophical and religious tr ...

History Of Technology And The Market - 1,145 words
Throughout civilization man has changed or evolved in various ways, which has allowed him to progress to new steps in advancement. By all means in the past man was barbaric like the animals and yet somehow he overcame nature and become one with his own collective thought and became immersed in his own curiosity that eventually self composed changes came in effect. What is this perpetual inclination within man, which causes him to question all things that are until they have become explained? Perhaps something within the brain from the beginning was given to facilitate man to these progressions. It is said, "I think therefore I am." And thus this is the cornerstone that became the capstone of ...

The Battle In Seattle - 1,522 words
The last time the World Trade Organization had a major meeting, it was in Singapore, and now we know why. Singapore, of course, is the city-state that accords near-perfect freedom to banks and corporations while jailing political activists and caning messy tenants and people who chew gum in public. When WTO ministers gathered in Singapore in 1997, their business was unimpeded by any outside agitators. (Or, for that matter, any internal dissidents: Advocates for worker rights or environmental standards are not allowed into the deliberations that set the rules for global commerce.) That Seattle wasn't going to be another Singapore was never in question. On Tuesday, though, Seattle wasn't even ...

Judgments And Justification As Portrayed In The Reader - 1,279 words
Throughout history mankind has always been faced with judgments. According the Oxford English Dictionary, judgment means the mental ability to form an opinion (AHD, 454). We are forced to make decisions based on our mental opinions. Then, ones actions are based on mental opinions which are judged by other people. Then there is the inevitable justification of these actions by other people or the person themselves. According the Oxford English Dictionary, justify means to demonstrate sufficient legal reason for (an action taken) (456). Once those actions are justified, they are considered morally and legally acceptable and are therefore are left alone. However, many times in a persons life, so ...

Ezra Pound - 1,323 words
Ezra Pound and T.S. Eliot on Modernism On Ezra Pounds quote on modernism, he claims that the modern age wants a literature that reflects an image of itself: accelerated and mass produced (a mould in plaster/Made with no loss of time) as well as superficial. This means that todays society wants a literature that resembles itself, fast paced and shallow. Society want literature that is direct and straightforward simply because people find it too time consuming to think for themselves. They would rather resort to the work already being done for them. Instead of experiencing the true beauty of literature and the arts, they would rather use Cliffs Notes (the classics in paraphrase). As a result o ...

Review Of Poes Cask Of Amontillado - 639 words
The thousand injuries of Fortunato I had borne as best I could; but when he ventured upon insult, I vowed revenge at length I would be avenged; this was a point definitely settled I must not only punish, but punish with impunity. Poes story is a case of premeditated murder; a powerful tale of revenge. In reading this story, it becomes quickly apparent that this tale has been carefully crafted to create a desired effect. In fact, it seems that almost every detail of this tightly woven story contributes to the desired deception of reality. Through the use of irony, point of view, and symbolism, Poe manipulates the thoughts of the reader, just as Montresor manipulates his victim, Fortunato. Iro ...

The frenzy over electronic media is becoming a hot topic for many reasons today. E-books, one of the newest electronic sources, are becoming more and more talked about in debates dealing with readings. Although e-books have their advantages, the disadvantages seem to overwhelm in many cases. I feel the Internet is very useful to get electronic articles, but they are easier to read if they are on paper. According to Christopher Lehmann-Haupt in Click if You Dar: Its Cyberscript, the e-book was very appealing in its book-like size and shape (Lehmann-Haupt 1).

A Rose For Emily - 375 words
William Faulkners A Rose For Emily portrays a post-modern culture of the old south. More specific in this story, images of death are fashioned by Faulkners use of symbolism. However, in an unintentional and seemingly chronological way, death is symbolic within the past, present and future in the form of the stench, the house, and the arsenic. When anything becomes a stench, either rotting or decomposition are occurring. As many of the townsfolk observed, a stench arose from Ms. Emilys estate. The stench presented here is a phenomenal symbol for the death that has occurred. Little did the townsfolk suspect, but Ms. Emily had willingly killed her lover. Now with the aroma of death wafting thro ...

The Influence Of The Witches And Lady Macbeth On Macbeth - 1,379 words
... ghtening nature. She uses her status as a woman to con Macbeth into killing Duncan. As his wife, she also has to calm any of his fears and doubts. She also is looking out for his benefit and wants to see him succeed. Lady Macbeth plays a very important role in tragic development of the play. Lady Macbeth questions Macbeths masculinity to convince him to murder Duncan. Lady Macbeth touches directly upon these issues in her attack on Macbeths manhood when he hesitates to kill Duncan (Andrews 522). Her first attack to his virility is when she says, From this time such I account thy love (I, vii, 38-39). She parallels Macbeths unwillingness to kill the King with sexual nonperformance (Bradle ...

My Bestfriend - 1,110 words
English 1301 If you want a good friend, then you must be one yourself. That phrase always sticks in my mind when I remember my best friend Omar. Omar and I have been friends for over twenty years. We have done everything together since the day Omar moved to Jerusalem with his family. Omar was only eight back then and full of stories. I especially liked the one about how women mysteriously grew babies in their stomach six month after they get married. Two years after that, we became best friends when Omar showed me one of his fathers adult magazines. We thought that women were really weird back then. We still share that secret to this day. Our friendship became much stronger during the Pales ...
