THE HISTORY OF THE GUITAR The guitar is a fretted, stringed instrument, and is a member of the lute family. It originated in Persia and reached Spain during the twelth-century, where it?s versatility as both a solo and accompanying instrument were established. The theory of the guitar was discovered in the early centuries. They found that the sound of a bowstring could be enhanced by attaching a resonating chamber -most like a tortiseshell- to the bow. From the bow came essentially three main t
The Various Themes in Wuthering Heights In the novel Wuthering Heights by Emily Bront?, many relevant themes were portrayed. In this essay, I will be discussing the five most poignant themes, which in my opinion are Good versus Evil,Revenge, Status & Education,Love and Selfishness. I feel that all these themes are equally important, and in the following paragraphs, I will attempt to discuss their impact on the reader and to the novel as a whole. Emily Bront? developed the main chara

Food Poisoning is very common. Many People do not even know they have it. It is caused by a bacterium. It usually takes larges numbers of food poisoning bacteria to be present in food in order to cause sickness. However, in ideal conditions, one bacterium can multiply to 2,097,152 within 7 hours. The ideal conditions for bacteria are a temperature range 5 degrees C- 60 degrees C. Bacteria need their own food to grow and multiply.

World Food Supplies While there are many issues concerning world food supplies, I will concentrate the efforts here on two main issues. The idea of a country having a surplus of food in one region and starvation in another region brings up the idea that transportation is a major problem in some areas. The concepts of new plant technologies greatly widen the areas in which food supplies can be grown and the number of crops that can be harvested from them. These issues are of great importance, bu

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
CIRCULATORY SYSTEM (A) FORMATION OF TISSUE FLUID AND EXCHANGE OF MATERIALS IN THE CAPILLARY NETWORK In a capillary network, two opposing forces mainly determine the movement of fluid between the blood and tissue fluid: (1) the hydrostatic pressure difference and (2) the osmotic potential difference between the blood and the tissue fluid. In the part of the capillary network near the arterial end, blood pressure is much higher than that of the tissue fluid so that the difference in hydrostatic p
IMAGERY The term imagery has various applications. Generally, imagery includes all kinds of sense perception (not just visual pictures). In a more limited application, the term describes visible objects only. But the term is perhaps most commonly used to describe figurative language, which is as a theme in literature. An example is animal imagery in Othello When Iago tortures Othello with animal images of his wife's supposed infidelity, were they as prime as goats, as hot as monkeys? (3.3.403

THE AMERICAN INDIAN When Europeans came to this land, there were many nations already here. On the western coasts were the Kalapooian, Chinookan, and Hokan who fished. The great forests in the east had for years given life to the Mohawks. On the southwest plains, the Sioux, Pawnee, and Cheyenne lived in harmony with their little brother, the buffalo. What are now deserts were once the farms and holy lands of the Hopi and the Navaho. In the South lived the Creek, Pensacola, and Natchez. Today,
Ernest Hemingway lived his life to the fullest. He experienced more than any other man. Since not many people traveled as much as Ernest, Ernest shared his experiences in books. In ?The Snows of Kilimanjaro?, ?Hills like White Elephants?, and ?In Another Country?, Ernest Hemingway uses a great deal of dialogue to help the reader identify with the characters in the story to show the reader how he perceives the situation of his experiences. In Ernest Hemingway's short story, ?In Another Country?,
Nathan Thayer Cpw-3 Bill Clinton Oct. 15, 98 Many presidents of the United States have been accused of having an affair. Most of these accusations can not be proven. The presidents usually get off the hook and nothing else is said about the affair ever again. In Bill Clinton's case it is very different. He was accused of having an affair with Monica Lewinsky. Instead of letting it go, they decided to make a big deal about it and take the President to court. Of course, trying to protect his wife

With a steady schedule of massage therapy, acupuncture, and healthy foods, people can lead a healthy and invigorating life without drugs or surgery. During the time of the ancient Roman gladiators, massage therapy was used to treat everything
It's very dark. So dark it almost hurts my eyes just straining to see into it. While I'm trying to peer into the darkness my eyes feel like they are glaring and squinting so hard they're just slits that I could hardly see out of anyway. They are actually willing themselves to see something-anything. They seem to scream out to my brain to conjure up an image just so they could prove they still work. I suddenly become aware that the blackness that surrounds me is deadly quiet, too. Shouldn't I be

Her mother sued the school for reverse discrimination and won. Her daughter was accepted and the school had to scrap a p
My Mom and Dad were divorced when I was one. Dad actually managed to sexually abuse me before the divorce. Karen and Janet, my two older sisters and I went to Dad's on Sundays where we had breakfast. We listened only to classical music, which we hated probably because it was Dad. We did not like him too much, he was different. I had no idea until after he was murdered that he was gay. Well, looking back he was flamboyant, wearing scarves and brooches. He was a gourmet cook and prided himself

Catholics recognize some people to be in heaven because of their holy lives. Such people are declared by the Pope to be in heaven. Most saints are people who have died rather than give up their faith. Saints are recognized as having the power to pray to God for specific persons. This is exactly what Teresa of Avila is known for, and in the following paragraphs it will explain it all a lot better and what Teresa of Avila is known for. Teresa of Avila was born in 1515 in Avila, Spain. She was bor
OSPREYS My report is about the osprey. The osprey is a carnivore , it eats mostly fish. Ospreys have another name, fish hawk. It has that name because ninety per cent of their diet is fish. They have long, curved talons and scaly feet to help grip the fish. They have been seen swimming low over water after eating, perhaps to clean their talons after eating. Ospreys live in four continents, North America, Europe, Asia, and Australia. Ospreys begin nesting in early springtime. Their nests can wei
The Social Contract by Jean-Jacques Rousseau Man is born free, and everywhere he is in chains. One man thinks himself the master of others, but remains more of a slave than they are.

He preached a mankind improved by returning to nature and living a natural life at

Corey Giordano History 6/16/98 Per.3 FINAL According to a famous quote ?People do not shape destiny, destiny shapes the person of the hour.? There are three people I feel had something happen to them which made them the man of the hour. These men are Ronald Reagan, John F. Kennedy, and Richard Nixon, all presidents of the United States. Ronald Reagan was the man of the hour when he felt that the U.S. needed to have more missiles, bombers, and other weapons to be the strongest nation in the worl
The Great Gatsby The Great Gatsby contains many themes. These themes are the thought of repeating the past, the image of God watching over us, and the advice that Nick receives at the beginning of the book. The theme of repeating the past is enacted throughout the whole book. You see this in the first chapter when Gatsby is portrayed as looking at the green light across the lake. The reader later on finds out that Gatsby knew Daisy before he went off to the war. He then buys a house that is in
Austin Younger Period 3 ?Hamlet's Flaw? Hamlet's father, the king of Denmark, has died suddenly. The dead king's brother, Claudius, marries Hamlet's mother and swiftly assumes the throne; a throne that Hamlet fully expected would be his upon the death of his father. Hamlet's father's ghost confronts Hamlet and tells him that his death was not natural, as reported, but instead was murder. Hamlet swears revenge. But rather than swoop instantly to that revenge, Hamlet pretends to be insane in orde
A False Utopia In Brave New World, their society is supposed to be a utopia. In actuality, it is far from a utopia because a state of utopia can never really be reached. There will always be factors, however minuscule they might be, that will affect the balance of perfection that makes up a utopia. It is impossible for a state of perfection to exist in this world and we learn this through the situations and characters in Brave New World. One of the characters in Brave New World that infringe up
PROPOSITION ?G? I strongly disagree with Proposition ?G?. I believe that there are to many people with guns as it is. Putting more guns on the streets will only make the death toll in cities and the entire world in that matter higher and higher. Proposition ?G? says that anyone over the age of 18 that has no criminal record and/or no mental history may legally carry a gun and make it known to people that they are caring a gun by wearing the gun in a holster that is outside the clothes instead o
Africa is perhaps the most mysterious continent in the world. It's ethnic, social, and religious diversity is impressive. Attempting to discuss a cultural aspect, such as music, without limiting the scope, would be impossible. ?The area of coverage has been limited to Sub-Sahara, Black Africa?(Graham1). When an individual hears the term African music, he probably thinks of the African-American forms, such as Hip-Hop or Reggae. Not many people today know what African music is all about. They do

It is set in the open plains on the Nebraska prairie, with wild winters and beautiful springtime. It is the tale of a pioneer family, the Bergson's, and their fight for survival.

Aristotle (b. 384 - d. 322 BC), was a Greek philosopher, logician, and scientist.

After Plato's death he left Athens to conduct philosophical and biological
Multiple Source Essay Just a Label Feminism is a subject that many people in modern society have a great deal of difficulty understanding. The main question that most people struggle with is What exactly does it mean to be a feminist? In my opinion, the word feminist is basically a label that has no specific meaning. The meaning depends upon personal opinions, beliefs, or stereotypes of a specific person. In other words, a feminist has a different meaning for every single person. Some peo

When many people think of fishing they envision going down to a local stream or lake and soaking a few worms. However there is a more exciting and often more productive method of fishing referred to as fly-fishing. Fly-fishing is much more of an art when opposed to spin casting. When fly fishing you are much closer to the underwater fauna, as you are often in the water with the fish. Aside from that you also pick which fish you will go after by locating him and floating a fly right under his no
The way our society views sexuality is that anything aside from being heterosexual is wrong. Homosexuals face many controversial issues, such as being banned from the military to marital laws. I feel that homosexuals should have all the same rights as heterosexuals and they should not be judged by their sexual orientation alone. Laws banning as well as states that don't accept same sex marriages are absurd and should be prohibited from having such laws. The government is in charge of quite a fe
Sociology 01 Gender Roles Essay Question #5 When analyzing gender roles in our age today, we are less likely to see the striking differences in the characteristics of men and women as they were portrayed let's say thirty years ago.

From the beginning of time, from what we've learned in textbooks, television, and other sources of media, of course, the ma

BELIEFS ON CAPITAL PUNISHMENT The demands of our criminal justice system today, force society to practice the use of capital punishment. In 1972, the United States Supreme Court declared the death penalty ?cruel and unusual punishment,? but this decision was reversed in 1978.

Since then, the punishments or scheduled punishments have increased at a steady rate. Religious beliefs amo
As a child, on any hot, sunny summer day there was always a good chance that my family and I would be going swimming. Going to our cousins' house to swim in their pond were exciting times. We parked in their driveway and walked through the very tall pine trees that went up as far as the eye could see and as far down. The trees seemed like an entrance into another world. If I looked up, I barely saw the tips of the trees swaying back and forth by a light breeze. I faintly smelled the light scent
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
