“Free To Be Me” I can be what I want to be. I can do what I want to do. I can do all the things I want and nothing or nobody can stop me. These are the words I tell myself whenever something hinders me from being me…from being the woman I want to be. So what if some women decided to wear those baggy jeans and loose shirts as men do and be a truck driver, a mechanic, a porter, an electrician, or an engineer.

Aristotle’s Ethics and Its Impact on Women 12/4/03 Aristotle deviates from the metaphysical views of previous philosophers, including his beloved teacher Plato, that state that the purpose of human life lays beyond this world.

Anabolic Steroids The History of Steroids During the 1930’s scientists discovered that Anabolic Steroids could facilitate the growth of muscle (skeletal) in laboratory animals.

BASEBALL Literature of baseball Just about every person in America, unless you have been under a rock for three or four years knows about the decline of baseball’s popularity, and the emergence of new sports gaining popularity. I believe that baseball is becoming a sport of the past not the present or future. The main reason for its decline is the changes in attitudes of the new generations of sports fans, and baseball is vastly declining in its popularity. People in between the ages of 18 throu

Salary Cap The issue of a salary cap is one that has troubled Major League Baseball for over a decade now, dating back to before the labor strike of 1994. It is my belief that a salary cap is necessary for baseball to continue to thrive and profit while maintaining its current league set up. A salary cap, I believe, is somewhat of a misnomer.

The Shelby Cobra The Shelby Cobra, first developed in 1962, was one of the most important and influential automobiles of the 20th century. The basic idea of the cobra, concocted by racing genius Carroll Shelby, was to stuff a whole lot of power into a light chassis. Hot Rod rated the first generation cobra’s at “271 hp…[and] 312 lb ft of torque” (Wright 54).
