Only after I found out that many of my needs are essentially wants, did I understand this concept. Wants are the poison, my Achilles heel. The question that pops in my head is what, exactly is a need? Is it something that I must have in order to survive? Many people start with a logical approach and come to some sort of a conclusion that there must be an origin...

It is those who are negative that view aspects in life depressingly. Most people who are positive cannot distinguish...

Castrating a Calf Using an Elasticator
By Ashley Davis Castrating a calf is not something people spend their Saturdays doing, unless you belong to my family. Once every year my family throws a big party. How many parties have you been to where you spend your time castrating something? Not many. Castrating a calf with an elasticator is a very delicate process. A person cannot just walk up to a calf and castrate it; he or she must first rope it and tie it down. Once the head has been roped it is wrapped around a snubbing post. A snubbi...

TREASON
Any true Australian would do almost anything in his/her power to protect Australia. So, if this boy, Tom, refused to train under the Defence Act in a time when war was upon Australia, there should be a form of punishment for this weak boy who did not wish to fight for his country. It seems that Tom would rather let other people fight for his freedom than training to defend himself and to defend the future of the country that he decided to lead his life in. It is understandable that Tom's beliefs...

Politics: Malcolm Fraser served as prime minister until March 1983, longer than anyone except Bob Menzies; then the Labor party returned to office, and Bob Hawke's term extended further than any previous Labor leader.

Australian life remained gracious and comfortable in many ways: in 1964 Donald Horne published a book about Australia entitled The Lucky Country, and, while Horne used the phrase sarcastically, m...

American Lit. Naturalism Naturalism is a belief that people ultimately have little or no control over their own lives. Heredity and environment are seen as the main factors that affect a person's life and fate. Several writers embraced these beliefs and wrote stories in which the main characters were faced with a fate dictated by their environments and their shortcomings. In "Outcasts of Poker Flat" by Bret Harte, four people are exiled to improve a frontier community. One is a gambler, another...

Journal Impressionism I found a definition from www.artlex.com, which seems to define impressionism perfectly: An art movement and style of painting that started in France during the 1860's. Impressionist artists tried to paint candid glimpses of their subjects showing the effects of sunlight on things at different times of day. The leaders of this movement were: Camille Pissarro (1830-1903), Edgar Degas (1834-1917), Claude Monet (1830-1903), and Pierre Renoir (1839- 1906). Some of the early wor...
