The Chase
The Chase from the view of the chased Leaving the jewelry store at a rather accelerated pace, a common, plain-clothed man with a parcel tucked under his arm jumped into his white, slightly dirtied Ford Bronco. He then hurriedly concealed the package under the front passenger seat making certain to prevent it from being seen from people passing by. He then tore out of the parking lot attempting to avoid drawing attention to himself or his accompanying bundle. He knew it would only be a matter of...

Exhausted, Kendra leaned back against the tree. The quiet of the night surrounded her, and in the distance she could see a small orange glow here and there of fires set by those who had been forced to leave their homes and set up camp in this park. She closed her eyes, rested her arms on her knees, and put her head down on her arms, cushioned by the sweatshirt she wore. The sweatshirt smelled of fresh air and smoke. She pulled the sleeves down over her cold hands. She sat like that for a while,...

The Fear of Science
The Fear of Science To live in the today's world is to be surrounded by the products of science.

The Four-Stroke Cycle
The Four-Stroke Cycle What really makes a car go? There are many parts to an engine that are visible, like an alternator, starter, hoses, wires and a bunch of other things. But what is in the inside and how does it work? The process is really just a mixture of parts, moving in sync in a distinct pattern called the four-stoke cycle. To understand the components of a four-stroke engine better, a little background information may be needed. In a gasoline engine, exhaust and intake manifolds (tunn...

Wuthering Heights written by Emily Bront can be classified as a Romant
Wuthering Heights, written by Emily Bront, can be classified as a Romantic novel, because it contains many tenets of Romanticism. Romanticism was the initial literary reaction to changes in society caused by the industrial revolution: it was an attempt to organize the chaos of the clash between the agrarian and the industrial ways of life. Romanticism was developing in a time in which all of societys rules, limits, and restraints on how each person should act where being questioned, tried, an...

The white-haired doctor with the blood-stained coat and pants smiled maliciously as he brought the razor to his waiting patient's face. Now please answer me honestly this time, Mr. Beckett, he said. I have been in this profession for over thirteen years, and I take pleasure in receiving input from clients. It helps me to know what hurts and what does not. Kind of keeps me ahead of the competition, I guess you could say. His patient nodded solemn acquiescence, shutting his eyes hard and biti...

Introduction: Toni Morrisons Beloved (1987) was her fifth novel, and consequently the most controversial work she had ever written. Morrison was working as a senior editor at the publishing firm Random House when she was editing a nineteenth centu...

The introductory readings Obrien's If I die in a Combat Zone Hasford's
The introductory readings, Obrien's If I die in a Combat Zone, Hasford's The Short-Timers, Moore's The Green Berets, and Obrien's Going After Cacciato, all share a common element - fear. An integral part of each story is a sense of fear that helps to intensify the experiences being related by the author; ie make the stories more realistic. Without the use of fear, these stories would lose much of their impact. The entire experience of Vietnam pivots on fear for many of the characters in these s...

The Burnside Project

I climb onto the lower platform, and quickly scale the small wall to the upper. I nod at the other already standing there. Ive seen him before, but I dont need to know h...

The Secret Sharer written by Joseph Conrad, centers around a character of a sea captain. Its title and opening paragraphs forecast a story of mystery, isolation, duality, darkness and silence. The novel proves true these predictions reveling thematic and image patterns directly proportional to them. The opening of the novel further reveals dialectics in the novel. The clash between the private and the public world or man versus society, in other words is the primary dialectic. The journey theme...

The Storm
The Storm In Kate Chopin's short story The Storm, the narrative surrounds the brief affair of two individuals, Calixta and Alcee. Many people don't see the story as a condemnation of infidelity, but rather as an act of human sexuality. This essay argues that The Storm may be interpreted as a specific act of sexuality and passion joined with a condemnation of its repression by society. If one is to attempt to interpret The Storm, it becomes necessary to examine the conditions of the surrou...

Ever since the first nuclear weapon was built in 1945, nuclear war has been a threat. The two major nuclear powers in the world today are the Soviet Union and the United States.

Despite the three Pulitzer prizes awarded him, Thornton Wilder may very well [have turned] out to be one of the few enduring writers of our time...There have been countless other authors who in his day have been far more discussed. That was inevitable for a man who has neither hastened to follow nor troubled to oppose the current mode, who has gone his own way, and who has clearly never sought the popularity which has periodically been his (Unger 355). The key to his significance is his extra...

If I were asked who my favourite Western Zen philosopher was without a
If I were asked who my favourite Western Zen philosopher was, without any hesitation, I would declare it to be Henry David Thoreau. Although he knew in translation the religious writings of the Hindus, it may be unlikely that Henry David Thoreau ever studied the teachings of the Zen Masters. Even then, the insight within his own personal writings would irrefutably make him master of his own temple. The wisdom found within Thoreau's Walden can be clarified through Zen Buddhist beliefs and ideas ...

Human Behavior
Human Behavior Core 150 What Price Knowledge I feel there is a definite need for knowledge in todays society, but there is also a definite point when it has gone too far.

It has also reached an extreme when the person becomes physically or mentally impaired after the experiments . I see this treatment as both immoral and unethical; there is no reason to ...

The land below us is always in motion. Plate tectonics studies these restless effects to give us a better understanding of the Earth and its past. New molten rocks are poured out in the form of magma from the mid-ocean ridges. The rock is recycled and re-entered back into the earth in deep ocean trenches through convection current. The convection current in the mantle drives plates around either against or away from each other. These collisions give rise to earthquakes, volcanoes, mountains, an...
