Mixed Blood - 677 words
The question of race has been a long debated topic that still has not been answered. Jeffrey Fish embraces this issue in his writing entitled, "Mixed Blood." The document opens by proposing the question of "What is race?", then breaking it down into smaller factions. The two lesser questions that are formed instead are: "How can we understand the variation in physical appearance among human beings? How can we understand the kinds of racial classifications applied to differences in physical appearance among human beings?" The preliminary hypothesis determined is that race is a myth and does not really exist. Yet, Fish chooses to expand on various possibilities that may lead to other conclusio ...

Manets A Bar At The Folies Bergere - 1,248 words
Manet's painting, A Bar at the Folies-Bergre, was an integral factor in the rise of a new era in art; through the emergence of a contemporary Parisian city, Modern art began to flourish during the late 1800's. Being a painting of extreme complexity and ambiguity, many art critics have commented on the formal aspects of the painting, as well as the social reactions to this specific, and novel form of art. The purpose and meaning of the mirror behind the lady and the disparity of reality versus reflections, pose immense controversy and are discussed in Robert Herbert's essay, Impressionism: Art, Leisure, & Parisian Society, Bradford R. Collins, Twelve Views Of Manet's Bar, Jack Flam's "Looking ...

Meursault As The Stranger - 1,782 words
... l service, and not even knowing his own mother's age proves to be outrageous when compared to the average human being's social and moral standards. But the fact is Meursault is not the average human being. Helene Poplyansky beautifully explained this when she said: Meursault is far from social convention or intellectual problems; what counts for him are his own sensations and desires. He is an outsider not only for others but also for himself. He looks at himself without trying to analyze his actions and their consequences. (Poplyansky 80) By acting the way he did, Meursault almost forced his image as a stranger upon himself. Also, the closest thing to a friend that Meursault had was Ray ...

Reformation Of Kikuji Mitani In Thousand Cranes - 1,657 words
"Thousand Cranes" by Yasunari Kawabata ILLUSTRATE THE ROLE WHICH MRS OTA AND HER DAUGHTER FUMIKO PLAY IN BRINGING ABOUT THE REFORMATION OF KIKUJI'S CHARACTER TO COME TO TERMS WITH HIS PAST. IN WHAT WAYS (IF ANY) DOES THIS HELP HIM BECOME A BETTER PERSON? Kawabata's "Thousand Cranes" is a novel that puts little emphasis on story lines, placing more value on emotions, reflections, symbolism and such. The rather crude (at first sight) plot of this complicated piece of Japanese literature is concentrated on a tangled web of relationships of the past, riddled with jealousy, insecurity and deep mistrust. Kikuji Mitani, the main character, has grown up watching many of these triangular and adultero ...

Marketing Is Marketing - 1,102 words
"Marketing is marketing, irrespective of the product or marketplace". This is a theme common to many introductory marketing texts and degree courses. The two most common exceptions cited to this proposition are buying behavior models between consumers and business buyers and the extended ingredients of the services marketing mix. While the overall sentiments of marketing hold true across product and market boundaries, perhaps the differences are in fact more marked?

The Adventures Of Huckleberry Finn - 782 words
St. Gregory of Nyassa stated, It is absolutely necessary that the soul should be healed and purified, and if this does not take place during its life on earth, it must be accomplished in future lives. St. Gregory is saying that during a persons life, he must find a way to restore and clean his soul, if not in his first lifetime then in his next. In order for a person to purify and heal his soul, he must like himself for who he really is and not someone he pretends to be. During some peoples lives they find a way to like themselves. Other people have to be reborn several times before they learn to like themselves for who they really are. There are many examples of this in Mark Twains novel Th ...

My end goal here is to bring out this wonderful storys points and compare them to mainstream religions fallacies.

Greenberets - 1,015 words
History 14 - Professor Barbara M. Kelly As I thought about my question, What role does the media play, in war?; I wondered how the best way to present this topic. One book that I read to help get a feel of the meaning of the Vietnam conflict was The Green Berets, by Robin Moore. The more and more I read this book, I started to analyze it in a different perspective. This book in fact had everything to do with my proposed question and I will show you why. I also intend to contrast the styles used in both the Vietnam conflict and the Gulf War. In order for me to best depict what The Green Berets means, we must first learn how this book came to be. But even before that I must begin by letting th ...

Poetry Is - 1,597 words
In what sense and how far is the genius master of his madness? For it goes without saying that to a certain degree he is master of it, since otherwise he would be actually a madman. For such observations, however, ingenuity in a high degree is requisite, and love; for to make observation upon a superior mind is very difficult. --Kierkegaard, Fear and Trembling Madness in great ones must not unwatch'd go. Poetry is not inspiration. Poetry is neither reasonable, irrational, or a result of some sort of mania. Poetry is language through which the writer affects and as a result the reader is affected. Within this, one finds a cause and effect relationship. Plato, in Ion, refers to the poet as, "a ...

Big Brothers - 1,728 words
In 1903 a man by the name of Irvin F. Westiemer encountered a young boy in an alley. This boy was searching for food in a garbage can. This unfortunate sight inspired him to organize an agency, which would be responsible for providing little boys who have no father figure, a male role model. This concept led to the creation of Big Brothers in the early 1900s. Irvin F. Westiemer is responsible for a non-profit, North American wide, private social service. The theory of introducing a male role model to one of these young boys, who have gone without, is to make a dramatic change in self-esteem, trust and the ability to hold a strong bond between friends. Since established in Canada in 1913, the ...

Beowulf Vs Aliens - 1,144 words
A Comparison of Beowulf, Alien, and Aliens: It would never occur to one to compare the great medieval tale Beowulf with the Common Era horror films Alien and Aliens, but in doing so you uncover some very striking similarities. Beowulf is the story of a Geat who upon hearing of the horrific doings of this monster figure named Grendle, sails to Hrothgars land and prepares to do battle with the Grendle. Alien is the tale of a group of navigators on a space craft who receive an unknown signal from what is thought to be a possible wrecked ship, but what they find is much more horrific. In a way, the two stories start off rather similar, there is a distress signal from a distant place and the two ...

Renting Vs Buyng A Home - 1,588 words
Should I sign another lease or take the plunge and buy a place I can really call home? This is a question that millions of Americans ask themselves everyday. This question is also an important one for me, as I am currently trying to make this decision. To answer this question consumers need to consider a few factors. A couple of these factors that need to be considered are their lifestyles and financial situations. According to the 1990 United States Census, there are approximately three million people in the state of Texas that live in owner-occupied housing and slightly over two million that live in renter-occupied housing. There are numerous reasons that people may choose to rent over act ...

Emergence Of Nation States - 1,954 words
The evolution of the state system has marked various significant events in the history of mankind. These episodes and years of war and battle for supremacy, freedom, religion and pride have caused many lives to be lost for the price of having realized the genuine type of a state. Nation and state are two concepts that are very confusing and sometimes both concepts are mistakenly perceived as having the same meaning. It is therefore necessary to provide a good definition on state and nation in order to draw a line or a distinction on both terms. "The term nation is an ethnic one, based upon culture, common heritage, language, and sense of identity. A state is a body of people politically orga ...
