Judicial Choices Supreme Court conformations, much like everything else in politics and life, changed over the years. Conformations grew from insignificant and routine appointments to vital and painstakingly prolonged trials, because of the changes in the political parties and institutions. The parties found the Supreme Court to be a tool for increasing their power, which caused an increased interest in conformations. The change in the Senate to less hierarchical institution played part to the s

The Importance of the Press The newspaper is a powerful medium. It is powerful because it has the ability to influence the way that people view the world, as well as their opinion of what they see. In peaceful times (or in times of oppression, for sometimes they can appear to be happening at the same moment) the press is usually one of the instruments used by the state in order to maintain the status quo. However, during times of political unrest it is often the press who becomes the major antag

In Sula, a significant thematic focus of novelist Toni Morrison is to imply- as evidenced by her characterization of Sula and Nel- that spacing ones self from other persons or things generally reveals that one is not content with themselves. One indication of Morrison’s intentions, in this regard, is her creation of showing who Sula really is. Secondly, Morrison

Since Italy had been late in the scramble for Africa, they had lost most of their opportunities to get some of this lush, green land.

The most interesting thing I found concerning this novel has the way in which Toni Morrison was able to present you with a first impression of the characters, then proceed through history, to give you a new con
