Gun Control Gun Control Part I:Introduction The issue of gun control and violence, both in Canada and the United States, is one that simply will not go away. If history is to be any guide, no matter what the resolution to the gun control debate is, it is probable that the arguments pro and con will be much the same as they always have been. In 1977, legislation was passed by the Canadian Parliament regulating long guns for the first time, restructuring the availability of firearms, and increasin

A Civil Action, by Jonathan Harr, tells the complex story of a civil case in Woburn, Massachusetts. The events of the Woburn case touch on many problems in the tort law system. The author really brings the reader into the story....you feel that you are there experiencing everything. And my personal favorite aspect is that it is a true story! I read the book long before the movie came out, but I have seen the movie as well. The book was much more intriguing and sentimental than the movie. The law

Death Of A Salesman No one has a perfect life. Everyone has conflicts that they must face sooner or later. The ways in which people deal with these personal conflicts can differ as much as the people themselves.

Yet this is ironic for the society which has so hailed the book is precisely that which is criticized throughout it.

Specifically, one of the ideals was an American dream free of class distinction; that every person has the opportunity to be whomever th

Othello In Shakespeare's Othello, the character Iago, Othello's lieutenant, is the cause of all the tragedy which comes to pass as the play progresses. Iago is the antagonist of the play, but rather than being the direct opponent to the tragic hero, Iago is a manipulator, opposing Othello not directly but through other characters whom he tricks into acting for him. In the first scene of the play, Iago gives the audience warning that he is not all that he seems when he says, I am not what I am. (

One of the most questionable models of memory is the one which assumes that every experience a person has had is 'recorded' in memory and that some of these memories are of traumatic events too terrible to want to remember. These terrible memories are locked away in the sub conscious mind, i.e. repressed, only to be remembered in adulthood when some trigge
