And it ended with two astounding victories by the American Football League when the brash Joe Namath helped the New York Jets win Super Bowl III and the powerful Kansas City Chiefs spoiled the NFL's golden anniversary celebration by winning Super Bowl IV, and positioned pro football for its last great realignment.

The 20s Was A Decade Of Prosperity And Entertainment As Well As Confli
The 20's was a decade of prosperity and entertainment as well as conflicts. Historians emphasize how Americans were living a life of wealth, but forget to mention the problems of society.

Childhood Obesity 2 In today's society childhood obesity is considered to be an epidemic. The increase in obesity is not caused by the change in the gene pool, but rather by the change in the environment. This causes vulnerable populations to express the obesity phenotype (Stune, 1999).

ARE MORAL STANDARDS RELATIVE? Ethics are moral principles or values that specify acceptable conduct, and determine how an institution will be governed. According to Shanahan and Wang, in their book Reason and Insight, the subject of ethics is morality, which is concerned with the practices, judgments, principles, and beliefs that guide people's actions. It attempts to address the issue of how we ought to live. Many people have different values that guide their lives, but some of these values a

Teen Alcoholism ?Too many college students have just one objective, ?to get drunk!? Campus alcoholism is an epidemic sweeping through colleges and universities at a rapidly growing speed. Even though it is illegal for a minor under the age of 21 to purchase or consume alcohol, that law has never stopped those who wished to drink.

The Making Of Automobiles Started In The Year 1770. In 1770 A Man Name
The making of automobiles started in the year 1770. In 1770 a man named Nicholas Joseph Cungnot from France built a large steam-driven vehicle. The vehicle didn't last long because the vehicle could only be driven for 12 to 15 minutes before running out of steam and the vehicle was too heavy and had poor balance and made it difficult to steer. Nothing more had been done until in the 1784. In 1784 James Watt made a patent on a steam carriage, but nothing became of it. Then in 1785 John Fitch inve

It's nothing personal, I like you, he says, but I have to look at this as a business. Is that what it is? I always looked at sport as an outlet, or even an opportunity; but sport is a business, that has become the cruel reality of modern day sport. This paper will discuss various aspects and show different examples of some ways in which this fact is apparent.

His arms are locked over his teammates' shoulders, all of their heads down. The two teams are pushing against each other like two moose fighting over territory.
