What is a goal? According to Webster, a goal is a place where something ends. Is a goal really an end or is it a beginning? Ironically, a goal symbolizes the start of a new journey. Realistic goals are important to set for ourselves. Goals are the motivators that lead us in an orderly expedition, it is crucial to remember that goals need to be flexible.

Human Nature, Some Say Its What Elevates Us To A Higher Plain Of Conci
Human nature, some say its what elevates us to a higher plain of conciseness, what separates us from animals. Others, however, say that human nature is the exact thing that holds us back, keeps us from evolving. Man is such a complex animal, full of contradictions and inconsistencies; it seems impossible for us to fully understand its nature. But to unlock the secrets of human nature is to discover the origins of both good and evil. So, never the less, we try because if we ever want to move for

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

Eventhough this book was written in the 1960's, Erhlich still brings up many points which are still valid in today's society. Environmental science often is not thought of by the public or the government, let alone the problem of human overpopulation, so this book served as one of the first looks into the issue. Environmental activists are often shunned as bein

: Civil Liberties and Crime: Through reducing crime can we still keep liberty? Do the ends justify the means? Upon first contemplation of how it could be thought that by reducing crime one takes away liberty, I was confounded. I couldn't envision a situation where it would be necessary to remove liberty in order to reduce and possibly even eliminate crime. I couldn't, however, only until I heard that we had bombed Iraq and were in the country with our troops. In listening to news stories and Pres

In To Kill a Mocking Bird, Harper Lee gives us a very detailed description of Robert Ewell, his family, and how he lives. A good example is the passage in which Robert Ewell testifies in the Tom Robinson Trial. This is a description of the Ewell's home as well as an insight into the Ewells themselves. We learn what kind of a father Robert is and the kind of life into which he has forced his eldest daughter, Mayella. We also see how the county of Maycomb cruelly discriminates against the black c

With talk shows ruling day-time television, people are left with little choice but to watch this humiliating form of entertainment. Turn the television on in the afternoon and you will find a large variety of talk shows to choose from. Maybe we have become a nation addicted to hearing our neighbors' seamy personal problems(You 40). Personally, I feel it is both the lack of choice and the attraction to other peoples problems. Many of the topics on talk shows are degrading to our society. If pe

Religion is a very broad and difficult thing to decode. There are so many different beliefs and laws that cultures abide by, startrting at any one subject would lead me right back to the question, where does our worship derive from?

Many people know tons of stuff about their distant relatives, because their family has passed on much information throughout the years. In my life today ethnic heritage does not play all that big of a role. The only thing I really know is that my distant relatives used to live in Ireland.

Mack Mack is a character in Cannery Row that is idolized by some of the unexpected characters in the book. It is funny what makes some people idolize people. It is not always how successful, rich, or even how smart someone is. Sometimes a person idolizes someone because of the way they act, think, or things they stand for. Doc is by far the smartest person, book wise, in Cannery Row. Even though Doc is much smarter than Mack, more successful, and has more money, Doc still looks up to Mack. Mack

In this case, the victims of scapegoating were the citizens of Salem, Massachusetts. I feel that Miller did an excellent job on the way in which he conveyed the setting, characters, and plot. The story takes place in Salem, Massachusetts in 1692. In their society there is only black and w

It is no surprise, then, that there exist certain parallels between the Enuma Elish, the cosmogony of the Babylonians, and the Book of Genesis, the first part of the Pentateuch section of the Bible. In fact, arguments may be made that other Near Eastern texts, particularly Sumerian, have had their influences in Biblical texts. The

Descartes himself was responsible for many of these changes, one of which was a strong advancement in philosophy.

The method in which these issues are dealt with, however, tends to be on the extreme side, since Desc
