The turn of the century has always been a big deal for modern civiliza
The turn of the century has always been a big deal for modern civilizations. One hundred years of life is quite large compared with the average 70 or so given to most. Because of that, people tend to look in trends of decades, rather than centuries or millennia. When it does come time for a new century, when that second digit rotates, as it does so seldom, people tend to look for change. Events tend to fall before or after the century, not on top of it, and United States history, particularly,

Elizabeth Blackwell was born in Bristol, England. She had many brothers and sisters, but she was not the youngest. Since Elizabeth and her sisters were girls Miss Major was the only one who would teach them. Elizabeth’s father was fun and loving, and he owned the biggest sugar refinery in Bristol, but when Elizabeth was ten years old there were a lot of money problems in her dad's company. Elizabeth, her mother, Miss Major, the servants, and Elizabeth’s brothers and sisters all moved to the cou

Most everyone thinks a veterinarian is just someone who takes care of
Most everyone thinks a veterinarian is just someone who takes care of animals in a clinic. This is wrong because veterinarians are considered vets from all sorts of fields, from the easier professions like kennel owners and dog groomers to the more difficult ones like surgeons and farm vets. Doctors of veterinary medicine are medical professionals, whose primary responsibility is protecting the health and care for animals and pets. Veterinary schools have been around for hundreds of years. The

In addition, many of these documents represent a distinctly Western point of view, as they are primarily composed of missionary accounts and the li

What is a luxury? Is it a good thing or is it a bad thing? Most people can describe what a luxury is, but the World Book Dictionary gave me an accurate definition. A luxury is defined as the comforts and beauties of life beyond what is really necessary. Immediately, most luxuries that I think of relate to the latest technology in the world. Computers, cd players, cellular phones, and all sorts of nifty little gadgets are all luxuries to me. Again, they are not necessary and anyone can live with

However, as with any machine, malfunctions can occur and these are the diseases which cause death.

As the number of males in nursing increase so do the questions and queries pertaining to the male nurse. Some of these queries include: Why do men choose nursing? Are there advantages for

Blatantly sexist laws and practices are slowly being eliminated while social perceptions of women's roles continue to stagnate and even degrade back to traditional ideals. It is these social perceptions that challenge the evolution of women as equal on all levels. In this study, I will a

When parents send their children away to college, they expect them to receive a quality education that will prepare them for the real world. However, most parents do not realize that their hard-earned money is being used to purchase hard liquor. Recent studies show that 82.5% of all college students drink (http://www.edc.org/hec/pubs/binge.htm). Binge drinking, consuming more than five alcoholic beverages in an row for men and four for women, is an all too common occurrence on college campuses.

John Keats was one of the last, great poets of the Romantic Era. He wrote poetry of great sensual beauty and with a unique passion for details. In his lifetime he was not associated with the senior poets who began the movement at the time of the French Revolution. He was unlucky in the respect he didn’t, fit into the older, respected group based on his age, nor in the younger group, for he was neither a lord nor in the upper classes.

Just as alcoholism was once thought to be a conscious choice, these latter examples have long been thought to be th
