Poe
Poe This essay is about how Poe uses the description of environments in his narratives. I shall explain this usage with close reference to several short stories by Poe. A full listing of the stories used appears in the List of Works Consulted at the end of this essay. It is important to note that in all of the stories, the narration is in the first-person. This has deep-reaching effects on how particular environments are described. This will also be commented upon. The first excerpt comes from ...

Frederick Douglass
Frederick Douglass Frederick Douglass was an emancipated slave who passed from one master to another until he finally found the satisfaction of being his own; he went through almost as many names as masters. His mother's family name, traceable at least as far back as 1701 (FD, 5) was Bailey, the name he bore until his flight to freedom in 1838. His father may or may not have been a white man named Anthony, but Douglass never firmly validated or rejected this possibility. During transit to New Y...

The Will To Power
the Will to Power In the Will to Power, Nietzsche claims: The will to power interprets (-it is a question of interpretation when an organ is constructed): it defines limits, determines degrees, variations of power. Mere variations of power could not feel themselves to be such: there must be present something that wants to grow and interprets the value of whatever else wants to grow. Equal in that- In fact, interpretation is itself a means of becoming master of something. (The organic process co...

Skin Care
Skin Care Throughout the late 1800's and until the present, cosmetics and skin care have been important in the lives of women in America. Certain trends have come and gone, just as some have remained. In the past 100 years, the roles and lives of women have changed drastically, but their cosmetics have always been around. Charm books along with step-by-step manuals give us today a look into the past. Advertisements are also a great source of history. Using these means, central themes in cosmeti...

Profitability And Risk
Profitability and Risk Qualitative Criteria and Evaluations Profitability and Risk Alternative one offers the highest profitability. The net income after taxes for alternative two is $104,996,299 compared to $160,658,065 for alternative one. Alternative two also offers a high profitability, but not as much as the first alternative. The risk for alternative one is very high. The risk for the second alternative two is average. Purchasing Nestea is risky because the alternative beverage industry i...

School Uniforms
School Uniforms Mandatory uniforms is an answer that some give to stop the recent and alarming rise in violence and drop out rates in our public schools. Those that support uniforms argue that uniforms disguise economic and ethnic backgrounds, so students are no longer jealous of others. The financial burden on parents is lifted. But do uniforms really give all of these benefits? Can just one change in public schools make them so much better? The wearing of uniforms in more of the nation's publ...

The Advantages Of Stupidity
The Advantages of Stupidity Most people say being stupid will lead no where. They claim that it is the worst possible condition in which to spend one's life, and if possible, it should be completely avoided. They would even suggest if the symptoms of stupidity are caught in the early stages, it could easily be treated by a surgeon. The most effective method used to do this is the chainsaw technique, later described in volume two. Yet, perhaps if people took a closer look at some of the advantage...

: TO: DATE: March 8, 1999 FROM: SUBJECT: Analysis of Resumes In an effort to improve my resume writing skills, I have analyzed two resumes taken from the internet. Although both applicants have years of experience, they have approached resume writing with different formats.

That applicant does not appear to be the more qualified professional, but his resume is clear and well...

The Christmas Season Comes And Goes Each Year, Leaving Behind A Spirit
The Christmas season comes and goes each year, leaving behind a spirit of joy and happiness amongst loved ones. Even if one is unable to be with family on this special holiday, a close knit friend would suffice. In the Christmas Sketches, Geoffrey Crayon vividly depicts the nature and style of how spending Christmas in the land of his forefathers with an old fellow-traveler sparked an image in his eye of true love. Crayon viewed England at Christmas time as a site of true beauty. He's taken b...

We Ask Ourselves Every Time We See Heavy Traffic, Is There No Variance
We ask ourselves every time we see heavy traffic, is there no variance anymore amongst car models? In the old days, as a matter of fact only five ore ten years ago every single car brand seemed to have it's own personality, today they look more like a cluster of copycats. What went wrong? One reason is that the automotive industry has certain trends it has to follow, just like fashion designers and musical composers. In times of recession and decreasing sales there is less room to take chances ...

Many Have Grown Fond Of The Tale Involving The Noble, Former French Ar
Many have grown fond of the tale involving the noble, former French aristocrat, who had virtually unmatched (except maybe in books) good fortune. First, his life was saved by the pitiful testimony of a beautiful young woman (who doesn't stand a chance at ever being a women's-lib poster girl). Anyone would gladly have married this beautiful too-good-to-be-true-woman he wedded. It is later seen, however, that this man should have married her even if she were ugly as sin. This was not the case tho...

THE HISTORY OF PUNK ROCK
THE HISTORY OF PUNK ROCK Punk rock is a style of music that originated in 1964 in New York City at an underground club called The Dom. This little known club at the time was the catalyst that started punk on the road to what it is today (History Punk). Sid Vicious of the Sex Pistols was quoted saying; ?Punk was created as a cure for boredom.? (Punk History). He sure has one thing correct; one certainly can not be bored while listening to punk rock. The hard core guitar rhythm, slashing bass lin...

Direct-Mail Advertising
Direct-Mail Advertising As consumers, we are often bombarded by different types of advertisements each day. Whether it?s by television, newspaper, or billboards, advertising has reached us one way or another. Yet, a majority of the ads that we encounter are often meaningless and uninteresting, because of the fact that these ads are meant to reach a certain target audience. This perception seems to change, however, when we look inside our mailboxes, pick-up our telephone, and even check our e-ma...

As Twenty-first Century Draws Near, There Appears To Be In The World A
As twenty-first century draws near, there appears to be in the world an era of unprecedented peace. Contrary to the predictions that the end of the Cold War will bring about the fragmentation of international order and the emergence of multipolar rivalry among atomistic national units, today the world's major powers enjoy co-operative relations and world economy is progressively liberalising and integrating. The peace and prosperity of the current era, however are sustained by the constant oper...

Since The Dawn Of Man, Fads Have Changed Periodically From The Lion Sk
Since the dawn of man, fads have changed periodically from the lion skin butt-flap, to eating dinner in front of the television. Some have been huge successes and then others have been eye-throbbing disasters. For an inquisitive person, creating a trend can lead to a profitable business like Tommy Hilfiger, still there are the few exceptions. However, it is because of a natural media driven entertainment industry that trends are created and manufactured. Humans follow fads for several reasons, ...

Invention Of The Elevator
Invention of the Elevator Back in the days of the 1850's through 1900's the invention of the elevator was a big step for civilization. The people went from old fashion stairs to for them a minute ride of luxury and realization (opposed to climbing stairs). An American inventor named Elisha Graves Otis was the first person to invent the mechanical elevator with adequate safety devices, such as safety brakes which gripped on to the elevator cab's rails. Safey cables which looped around a drum tha...

How Can A Native Minority Hold On To Their Heritage When They Are Thru
How can a Native minority hold on to their heritage when they are thrust into a majority white society, ignorant to their values? The author of Green Grass Running Water, Thomas King, examines this question is his eye-opening novel. By the cleaver way he sculpts his novel and the unique plot lines, he seems to leave the answer to the readers interpretation. Consequently, I found it a struggle to come up with any concrete answer. Maybe because their isn't one, and if there is I am not the most q...

Weapons Of The Civil War
Weapons of the Civil War The Civil War has been the worst tragedy that this country has experienced throughout our nation's fairly young existence. It will forever be a permanent scar that will blemish the history of the United States of America. The Civil War amassed more American casualties than all other wars combined. This fact is partially due to the amazing advancement of firearms during the era of the Civil War. Both the C.S.A. and USA were fractionally responsible for creating this sudd...

On The Human Experience And Tradition
On the Human Experience and Tradition During the Renaissance, a writer named John Milton became the center of much acclaim and much controversy. His writings, though focused on various subjects, always revolved around his thoughts about religion and the human experience. Particularly, Milton wrote from the standpoint of a Christian Humanist. The term Christian, which seems fairly simple to a reader, becomes complex as Milton imposes his ideas on who 'true' Christians are. The term Humanist also...

Religions Spread Through Conquest
Religions Spread Through Conquest When studying history, both in a professional and academic sense, we try to make connections between civilizations and time periods. Historians have attempted to discover universal constants of human nature, a bond that forms from continent to continent and human being to human being.

It Has Been Said That A Country That Goes Through Hard Times, Will Oft
It has been said that a country that goes through hard times, will often rebound and become stronger as time passes by. Guatemala is one of those countries. It may not be situated in an area of peace and wealth. It may not have the best medicine. It may not have enough of an army to defend its patriots. All in all, Guatemala has survived through the many hardships and warring and has come out as the stronger of the nations. Guatemala may not be the best of the best, but it has survived through ...

Advantages Of Capital Punishment
Advantages of Capital Punishment As much as people complain about the laws in the United States are they strict enough? Are there any penalties for murder that are enough to scare a person away from the crime they are planning to commit? The answer in most cases is no, this is why the death penalty should be used in all states and more often. The death penalty is a cost effective deterrent for the USA's problem of violet criminals. The death penalty has been part of justices systems since the b...

Yankee Doodle Went To Town, Riding On A Pony,
Yankee Doodle went to town, riding on a pony, Stuck a feather in his hat and called it macaroni. Before beginning my research, I assumed that the song above was a pointless rhyme, with about as much significance as Mary Had A Little Lamb. However, after much research, I've learned that this poem is a reflection of colonial slang, British fashion, and the classic American tradition of the insult. Yankee Doodle was written by British soldiers during the Revolutionary War. While it may be us...

How Affirmative Action Effects Us All The Roots Of Affirmative Action
How Affirmative Action Effects Us All The roots of affirmative action can be traced back to the passage of the 1964 Civil Rights Act where legislation redefined public and private behavior. The act states that to discriminate in private is legal, but anything regarding business or public discrimination is illegal (Affirmative 13). There are two instances when opposing affirmative action might seem the wrong thing to do. Even these two cases don't justify the use of affirmative action. First is...

I Am Violently Warring For Peace. I Know This Is A Paradox, And Im
I am violently warring for peace. I know this is a paradox, and I'm rather proud because it is true. Passivity has been a lifelong threat, laziness a constant lure in my search for identity. This world begs me to succumb to existing in the image of someone else, it asks only that I slip silently and blindly into the niche it provides instead of carving my own. I required a long time to work up courage to fight for the serenity I had glimpsed in hot summer woods and in lovingly handled books rea...

Criticism has taken the very idea of aboutness away from...
