Can We Say NO To Recycling
Can We Say NO To Recycling Lately the earth’s capacity to tolerate exploitation and absorb solid wastes disposal has diminished, due to excess trashing. People dispose lots of stuff, and simply do not care. Therefore scientists found out a way to reuse things and that process was called recycling. This new approach seemed quite successful at the beginning, until its true identity appeared. Recycling first started as man’s best friend, people were intrigued by this new phenomena. What could b

Welfare, it is on just about everyones' mind, whether it is Medicare or the A.F.D.C. Some believe there is too much and others think there is too little. As the years go by, the need for welfare reform increases. President Clinton had pledged in his 1992 campaign to end welfare as we know it. Only time will tell by what extremes welfare will change. As technology continues to increase and jobs continue to go overseas, the United States must decide what direction the welfare system should take

Ethan Frome PROLOGUE One thing that sets Ethan Frome apart from other novels is the way the story is told. Edith Wharton doesn't just start at the beginning and tell you what happens. Rather, she uses a narrator who knows no more about Ethan Frome than you do. The narrator, who remains nameless, is a young engineer. He tells you how he uncovered Ethan's story bit by bit. He recounts what people said to him and what he observed during the months he spent in Ethan's hometown one winter long ago. T

A Long Fatal Love Chase
A Long Fatal Love Chase Louisa May Alcott Louisa May Alcott's background influenced her to write the tragedy A Long Fatal Love Chase. One important influence on the story was her father's role as a leading transcendentalist (Doner 342). Transcendentalism states that society is a necessary evil (Clendenning 371). Simi-larly, Rosamond Vivian, the main character in the book, states her opinion of society when she says: Law and custom I know nothing of, public opinion I despise, and shame and fear

WHY I BELIEVE IN VOLUNTARY EUTHANASIA
WHY I BELIEVE IN VOLUNTARY EUTHANASIA There are at least two forms of suicide. One is 'emotional suicide', or irrational self-murder in all of it complexities and sadness. Let me emphasis at once that my view of this tragic form of self-destruction is the same as that of the suicide intervention movement and the rest of society, which is to prevent it wherever possible. I do not support any form of suicide for mental health or emotional reasons. But I do say that there is a second form of suicid

“I WANT TO LIVE WITH DADDY!” In 1981, Edward McNamara lost a suit for custody of his daughter, Katie. Although the court described him as “a good parent who could provide a devoted and loving home for the child,” the state of California gave full custody to the mother. Women historically have been awarded custody of their child automatically, as if only a female possesses the skill and knowledge of child rearing. Mothers are now working out of the home just as many hours as the fathers, so time

Torture is one of the most barbaric acts of state repression, and it constitutes a direct and deliberate attack on the core of the human personality. Like slavery, it is an expression of the almost unlimited power of one individual over another. In the case of slavery, the human being is degraded to the condition of a non-human object deprived of legal personality. Torture aims to destroy human dignity and reduce the victim to the status of a passive tool in the hands of the torturer. In ancient

We already know enough about AIDS to prevent its spread, but ignorance, complacency, fear and bigotry continue to stop many from taking adequate precautions. We know enough about how the infection is transmitted to protect ourselves from it without resorting to such extremes as mandatory testing, enforced quarantine or total celibacy. But too few people are heeding the AIDS message. Perhaps many simply don't like or want to

People who experience losses due to diabetes aren't just a statistics for people to look at.

But only 8 million had been diagnosed with it. Isn't that scary? Over half didn't even know they had it and could slowly takeing their life by eating the wrong foods for them.

The Politics of Homelessness The problems of the homeless are real, but as with anything, the details of reality depend on the agenda of the person telling the story. Unfortunately, in the case of this issue, it is the homeless who suffer while the political armies fight for preeminence. In fact, the politics of homelessness has become a multibillion dollar business that is more concerned with protecting its own existence than it is in actually helping its constituents.

The town, based on historical records, had a very devout puritan population. These people formed their lives about the church, which also was the government. The church controlled schools as well as matters of the law. This gave the Puritan moral system great strength in the society, and the city’s rules were based upon it. Therefo

The Framers of the Constitution were great clockmakers in the science of statecraft, and they did, with admirable ingenuity, put together an intricate machine, which promised to run indefinitely, and tell the time of the centuries. This statement, made by James M. Beck , praises our founding fathers and their ideals. Today, however, Mr. Beck and the authors of the Constitution would be outraged with the status of our government, especially Congress. They would see how truly expanded our govern

Structurally, an EPO can look quite like a PPO, an EPO can simply be a network of health care providers, formed perhaps by an insurance carrier, or by an employer, or even by the providers themselves. From the beneficiarys' point of view, however, an EPO does not function like a PPO. In the class

The rest runs off into rivers, lakes, streams and the water table, where it is available for human use.

However, what most people don't think of is the rigorous diet a body builder must endure to reach the condition that he or she is in when they walk out on stage.

Euthanasia, or a good death, is an issue that has caused much controversy for the past thirty years. This topic has a legal and illegal side to it. Many people cannot unanimously choose one side or the other. The legal issue, or passive euthanasia, is considered as allowing to die (Gula, 5). It varifies the removal of life-support systems because there is not any moderate hope of restoration. The illegal issue, or active euthanasia, is considered as homicide (Gula, 5).

Today, as in the past, our country is working to alleviate the problem of poverty as quickly and efficiently as possible.

In The Scarlet Letter Nathaniel Hawthrone masterfully weaves many them
In The Scarlet Letter, Nathaniel Hawthrone masterfully weaves many themes and uses character development to format the plot of this novel. The themes of The Scarlet Letter are carried out through the four main characters -- Hester Prynne, Arthur Dimmesdale, Roger Chillingsworth, and Pearl -- and also through symbolism. In this novel, Hawthrone hoped to show that although Hester and Dimmesdale sinned, they achieved the wisdom of self knowledge and inner growth through their suffering. Background

He likes at times to shock his contemporaries... No doubt he succeeds. The important message here, though, is that the
