I was practicing with the cheerleading squad after school when I saw him. He jumped from a window about five feet above the ground. I think he did it t...

Ever since I was little I have always looked up to my dad I've admired
Ever since I was little, I have always looked up to my dad. I've admired him for his intelligence, his humor, his devotion, and his friendliness. But the one thing I have never neglected in my whole life is that my own father is a well-known, well-respected doctor. Whenever I walked down a street with him, people would smile at him, shake his hand, or give him a gift. I soon coveted this fame that he had, and wanted to become a doctor. I would practice on my dog or my pillows before preschool...

As a young child I had a most favorite place. It was a tree fort that I built with my big brother on our wooded property up north near a cedar swamp.

It is a great place to play and forget schoolwork. The tree fort is not big. It is about 10 feet off the ground. That was high then but not any more. It is about...

Shouldn't this book be a study of narration? It is so simple at times that you feel that you little brother might have written it (The cab stopped in front of the hotel and we all got out and went in. It was a nice hotel, and the people at the desk were very cheerful, and we each had a good small room) but then there is an honesty that comes through. This honesty combines with the honesty of the Hemingway characters to face the real, meaningless(?) life which lies in front of them--it may be ...

I Am America Hear Me Roar
I Am America. Hear Me Roar. Flexing our muscles at Mexico! With the annexation of Texas by the government of the United States of America, war with Mexico seemed to be inevitable. Yet was it really?

The common view of hypnosis is that it is an altered state of consciou
The common view of hypnosis is that it is an altered state of consciousness, a trance-like state characterized by intense concentration, extreme relaxation, and high suggestibility. Many who accept this view also believe that hypnosis is the way of accessing the unconscious mind, thereby allowing the recovery of repressed memories, multiple personalities, and even memories of past lives. Since at least the 1960's this view of hypnosis has been seen as a myth by scientifically-minded psychologis...

In The Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens both London and Paris app
In The Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens both London and Paris appear to be poor cities. The main theme is Recalled to Life which is the resurrection or release of Alexandre Manette from the kingdom of death and his isolation of being in prison for nearly eighteen years.

A wine cask was broken and the poor people stopped in the street to have a brief c...

SUMMARY THEME
SUMMARY THEME Squeal like a pig boy!!! This is a line from the movie, its never said in the book, but is probably the only line I will ever remember from Deliverance. Most people have seen or heard about the Beverly Hillbillies and picture hillbillies as good ol' Jed and Granny Clampet. But in the case of these four middle-aged businessmen a hillbilly is something completely different. In James Dickey's novel Deliverance, four city-slickers decided to take on the largest river in the state of...

Since I'm at work now, I'll try to type this out with a minimum of tears, although my heart is still aching. This morning I learned that Jerry Garcia passed away. Why should I care about a rock star who I don't even know? Why should I feel any pain? Why should I even take the time to write this? I have asked myself these questions. But I feel compelled, and the answer will lie in this letter. The unfortunate first words I heard about his death were from a jerk at work who was callously telling ...

The Precise
The Precise Q: If you had to identify the most significant causes of the Revolution, what would they be?

His mother ruled for him along side the new Chief Minister, Mazarin, who had been trained by R...

Adolf Hitler the Nazi dictator of Germany during World War II once sai
Adolf Hitler, the Nazi dictator of Germany during World War II, once said, The bigger the lie, the more people will believe it. Although this may sound ludicrous, we can see many examples of this in the world's history. One example would have to be the John Fitzgerald Kennedy assassination. For over thirty years the people of the United States were led to believe that a single gunman shot and killed Kennedy in Dallas on November 22, 1963, at 12:30 p.m... However, in this paper, I will dispute...

The Titanic
The Titanic On April 14,1912 a great ship called the Titanic sank on its maiden voyage. That night there were many warnings of icebergs from other ships.

According to Walter Lord, author of The Night Lives On, the Titanic could have been saved in the very beginning of the cris...

Hydrogen Car
Hydrogen Car The trouble with today's cars is that they still put out a lot of pollution, and use up fossil fuels. One day, we have to run out of fossil fuels. People have been talking about running cars on water for ages. Unfortunately, most of the time, these people are crackpots. But there is a certain amount of truth in what they say. Now I know that trying to predict the future is hard, but I think that an electric car, powered by a fuel cell running on hydrogen, could be a goer! If you re...

13 Were the Elizabethans more bloodthirsty or tolerant of
13. Were the Elizabethans more bloodthirsty or tolerant of violence on stage than we are? In addition to the visible bloodletting, there is endless discussion of past gory deeds. Offstage violence is even brought into view in the form of a severed head. It's almost as though such over-exposure is designed to make it ordinary. At the same time, consider the basic topic of the play, the usurpation of the crown of England and its consequences. These are dramatic events. They can support the highly...

Odysseus and his crew were just leaving the Land of the Dead on their way to Kirkes island to bury Elpenor as Dawns finger tips of rose slowly crept over the morning sky.

It's very dark. So dark it almost hurts my eyes just straining to see into it. While I'm trying to peer into the darkness my eyes feel like they are glaring and squinting so hard they're just slits that I could hardly see out of anyway. They are actually willing themselves to see something-anything. They seem to scream out to my brain to conjure up an image just so they could prove they still work. I suddenly become aware that the blackness that surrounds me is deadly quiet, too. Shouldn't I be...

Being a daughter of a dairy farmer you learn to live with the grim smell of the cattle. I remember one freezing cold morning I went waddling out with my father to mild those delightful cows. It was about 7:00 in the morning. My dad had awaken me up from my pleasant slumber at around 6:30 so I could get all bundled up for the treacherous outdoors. When I got done dressing I looked like a stuffed pillow. When we had made the walk from the house to the big red barn. From where I was standing, at t...
