Whats so special about an orangutan Their eyes hold a story that is my
What’s so special about an orangutan? Their eyes hold a story that is mysterious and yet intuitively we relate to them. Just one look into those eyes and you are hooked. The orangutan’s anatomy, geographic range and habitat type, food habits, behaviors, and locomotor patterns make the species unique while sharing some features with other primates. However, currently Indonesia is facing a threat to its orangutan population. Loss of habitat, illegal hunting, and the notorious pet trade all pose a

Money Talks
ÿMoney Talks One thing that I have learned in my eighteen years of life is that the more money you have the better off you are. This is true for just about anything, even education. Everyone should be able to get the same education no matter what their family’s income level is, but I find this to be untrue. It seems to me that the more money a person puts out, the better education he or she is going to receive. This affects all schools from elementary to high school and even into college. I gre

Talk Shows With talk shows ruling day-time television, people are left with little choice but to watch this humiliating form of entertainment. Turn the television on in the afternoon and you will find a large variety of talk shows to choose from. Maybe we have become a nation addicted to hearing our neighbors' seamy personal problems(You 40). Personally, I feel it is both the lack of choice and the attraction to other peoples problems. Many of the topics on talk shows are degrading to our soc

Throughout history dating back to the time of Socrates an educated pop
Throughout history, dating back to the time of Socrates, an educated population has been viewed as being a positive step in the advancement of a society. Is the goal of education and particularly public education, to make better individuals, or to make better citizens of a state? Socrates argued that the only people who were fit to run a city properly were the philosopher-kings. Theoretically, in having philosophers rule a city, the most knowledgeable types of people would be in charge, as oppo

Minimum wage simply means the lowest payment that an employer would pay the employee, which is call the floor price. This minimum wage is enforced and controlled by the government. Why? Because the government assumes that if a laborer gets paid more then he or she would be more well off and will not be forced below the poverty line. On the other hand, Patrick Luciani's point of view differs considerably; he states that the policy of minimum wage will generate more unemployment and more people

Generally, feminism means the advocacy of women's rights to full citizenship--that is, political, economic, and social equality with men. Feminism encompasses some widely differing views, however, including those advocating female separatism. Modern feminism, which was born with the great democratic revolutions of the 18th century (American and French), differed from its precursors in applying the democratic implications of the rights of man and the citizen to women as a group.

The two visions that these authors had are perceived by most to be practically the same, when they are in fact, completely opposite. Orwell believed that people would become destroyed by a controlling oppression brought on by the government, while Huxley predicted humans would des
