If we must die, let it not be like hogs haunted and penned in an inglorious spot, while round us bark the mad and hungry gods, making their mock at our accursed lot. Like men we'll face the murderous, cowardly pack, pressed to the wall, dying, but fight back! -- Claude McKay If you look in an encyclopedia under the heading Men, Role of you will not find any entry.

The Career of Teaching Today, as we enter a new world of technology, and new discoveries, we must remember how we got where we are today. How did we learn how to do all these skills like reading, writing, and arithmetic? We got to where we are today because of teachers.

Peace is the sturdy child of terror. For me, such a peace is a wretched offspring, a peace that condemns us to live under a dark cloud of perpetual anxiety, a peace that codifies mankind's most murderous instincts. . . .The beast (nuclear weapons) must be chained, its soul expunged, its lair laid waste. This Winston Churchill quote summed up his feelings on nuclear weapons and weapons of mass destruction. Nuclear weapons have been used in war three times in their sixty-year existence. Two tim

Computer Engineering Throughout today’s society there is no way that you could accurately say technology has not, and will not, influence us anymore. Current technology is moving at such a faster pace, that it is incredible what sorts of things we have. So whom do we give all of the credit to? Who or whom was it that was and is moving technology forward? Well, believe it or not, it’s the engineers’ job, not seclusively, but in general. Their career is based on finding, building, researching, cr
Television I disagree that television is a waste of time because kids today know that a lot of the things on TV is not even real. Even parents watch TV and not all of it is bad. I mean yes, there are some negative programs, but there are a lot of positive ones too. A lot of people say that TV causes violence, but that’s not true! If you were to take away all TV would violence go away? I think we all know the answer to that one. No, violence would not go away. Bad people make violence, and telev
