Its exact beginnings are not known; however, some historians trace golf back to the Stone Age while others claim it originated from the �idle antics of shepherd boys knocking small stones into holes in the ground with a crook while their flocks grazed nearby� (Peper 1). Researched back to the time of the Roman Empire, it is also believed the sports-oriented Romans played a forerunner of the ...

We already know enough about AIDS toprevent its spread, but ignorance, complacency, fear and bigotry continue to stop many from taking adequate precautions to stop the risk of getting the aids virus.

  • Marriage Asylum
    Marriage Asylum It is my belief that the institution of marriage is a sham, designed by pious Christain fanatics in order to subjugate, control, and furthermore oppress a woman's personal liberties, intellectual freedoms and artistic development. It is also my belief that much in the way of the institution of marriage has not changed since its barbaric origin hundreds of years ago. In light of the enormous rate of divorce, marriage should be banned or at least have greater restrictions placed on ...

  • Three Universal Deadly Sins
    Three Universal Deadly Sins Throughout history, mankind has looked back to the past, to seek the truth about morals, religion, and how they both impact and define civilization. Stories and myths from ancient Greece show overbearing resemblance to our own Bible as both shun the many temptations of our soul either by teaching the value of a characteristic or warning of the "ill fruits reaped". Dante Alighieri revealed in his Divine Comedy that "Pride, Envy, and Avarice are the three sparks, [the t ...

    The Journal of Jerristocratosthenes: A Tragic Epic Story thing July 8th, 443 BC It was a day like any other, warm and humid with the sun shining, yet it felt different somehow. It felt dark, dark like the depths of an ocean, dark as the deepest night. A nebulous dark, a vague, hazy bemusing dark. I leaned up against the wall of the building, head down, examining the passing men through my drifting brown hair. They seemed oblivious to me... oblivious to my power. It was then that I strode forward ...

Examined within this paper are the methods which Twain uses to conceal his satire within the above two novels. The majority of his points are made using humor, but he also takes advantage of the use of southwestern dialect and Hu ...

    After 1500 there were many signs that a new age of world history was beginning, for example the discovery of America and the first European enterprises in Asia. This ³new age² was dominated by the astonishing success of one civilization among many, that of Europe. There was more and more continuous interconnection between events in all countries, but it is to be explained by European efforts. Europeans eventually became ³masters of the globe² and they used their mastery to make the world one. Th ...
  • The Dred Scott Decision
    The Dred Scott Decision The Dred Scott decision of the Supreme Court in March 1857 was one of the major steps on the road to secession. Dred Scott was a slave who was taken to Missouri from Virginia and sold. His new master then moved to Illinois (a free state) for a while but soon moved back to Missouri.

    Socrates was a truly remarkable man. As one of the greatest philosophers of all time, many of his ideas are still discussed regularly. Studying his life, particularly right before his death, can be very interesting.

Socrates had a knack for being able to look over the natural situation and determine what is truly important. Aft ...
  • The conflict in the Balkans is interesting because for years reporters
    The conflict in the Balkans is interesting because for years, reporters and politicians have touted it as being the result of ancient ethnic hatred but that isn’t the case. This class has taught me, if nothing else, that the people of this region lived together peacefully for centuries and any conflicts that have arose among people were based not on ethnic origin but other things like class, ruling party, and so on. In fact, any problems that have arose in the former Yugoslavia have more to do ...

    The word "privateer" conjures a romantic image in the minds of most Americans. Tales of battle and bounty pervade the folklore of privateering, which has become a cherished, if often overlooked part of our shared heritage. Legends were forged during the battle for American independence, and these men were understandably glorified as part of the formation of our national identity. The fact of the matter is that the vast majority of these men were common opportunists, if noteworthy naval warriors. ...

    Heavy Metal’s popularity is and has been on the rise due to its many bands and increased guitar technology. Since the mid 1960’s, when heavy metal spread to the U.S. from England, it has grown in popularity. Many of the first bands that came from Europe came with two intentions; to spread heavy metal to other parts of the world, and to make it grow in popularity. (Ragland 1). Heavy metal is a form of rock ‘n’ roll music played on electric guitars and amplified to unnatural volume levels. Such ef ...
