Ray Bradbury - 1,502 words
"Ray Bradbury is one of the immortals among us, whose classic works of science fiction, fantasy and horror will be read a thousand years from now by our descendents and the relatives alike of the planets of a thousand distant stars." ( Dragon*con, website). Hes won many awards for his writings and lectures, and I have no doubt in my mind that his writings will live on forever. "It was a special pleasure to see things eaten, to see things blackened and changed. With the brass nozzle in his fists, with this great python spitting its venomous kerosene upon the world, the blood pounded in his head, and his hands were the hands of some amazing conductor playing all the symphonies of blazing and b ...

Fahrenheit 451 - 1,149 words
It was a pleasure to burn. It was a special pleasure to see things eaten, to see things blackened and changed, begins Fahrenheit 451 (1). This opening of Bradburys novel immediately evokes the consequences of the careless use of new technology and modern-mans refusal to recognize these consequences (de Koster 44). The book Fahrenheit 451 is one of only two novels that Ray Bradbury has written, the other being Something Wicked This Way Comes. (Many believe that Dandelion Wine and The Martian Chronicles are novels when in fact they are just collections of different stories put together by connected themes.) The idea for the story comes from a story called the The Fireman published in Galaxy. T ...

Year Round School - 597 words
Last fall our school board decided to make it mandatory for students to attend school year-round. There were many issues to look at before making this decision. I feel that year round school can both benefit and hurt children. There are many issues that people are for and against for year round schooling. What will happen to kids who have summer jobs or even part time jobs? Employers look for kids who are willing to work during the summer months when there are more activities going on in our community. During the school year students can only work part time and during the summer they are able to work more hours. When school is out during the winter months, things are slower, so business is s ...

A southerner, a drinker, a fouwl mouth, a grumpy old man, are phrases youd probably use to describe my grandfather, but to me he has a heart of gold.

Conflict In Romantic Relationships - 1,604 words
Spanking a child is a controversial issue. On one side of the debate are people who believe spanking is a necessary component of parenting. On the contrary are people who think spanking a child is destructive. Somewhere in the middle are people who believe spanking is legitimate only when used correctly. Part of the reason for the debate is that some parents and experts define spanking differently. To some, spanking means slapping a child on the rear-end, while others believe it is a form of corporal punishment that does not cause injury. By showing how each perspective of spanking supports their claim and defining spanking, one will be able to form an opinion. In order to conclude an argume ...

I couldn't wait for my family and I to take our annual vacation. It was during those times that I enjoyed myself most. I had anticipated this vacation to be the best. After all, I was going to Disney World, which was the greatest place in the world. Little did I know I was about to embark on a journey that would leave a permanent scar in my memory.

Wetland Research Paper - 3,053 words
When most people think of wetlands the first thing that will pop into their mind will be visions of swamps and flooded plains. These marshy lands would seem to have no purpose, while in reality they are the most precious form of ecosystem that we have in America. Wetlands contribute to biodiversity, clean water, flood control, and provide a habitat for millions of species of plants and animals. Even with all this wetlands still face mass destruction, much like the rain forests they are just as productive and face similar rates of devastation (Mitchell, J. (1992, October). Our Disappearing Wetlands National Geographic, Pg 15). It really is hard to get someone passionate about a mosquito-infes ...

The following was written, 20 April 2005. In 21st century American society, there seems to be a growing infatuation with technology and mass media in the midst of natural disaster and terrorist attacks. Specifically, Americans seem to be inundated by so much television that they no longer have the capacity to think outside the box, and would rather be immersed in the idiot box than in a good book or a news paper.
