Catcher in the Rye Holden and His Phony Family
Catcher in the Rye - Holden and His Phony Family The protagonist, Holden Caulfield, interacts with many people throughout J.D. Salinger’s novel The Catcher in the Rye, but probably none have as much impact on him as certain members of his immediate family. The ways Holden acts around or reacts to the various members of his family give the reader a direct view of Holden’s philosophy surrounding each member. How do Holden’s different opinions of his family compare and do his views constitute

Flat Fee vs. Pay-per-use Most Internet users are either not charged to access information, or pay a low-cost flat fee. The Information SuperHighway, on the other hand, will likely be based upon a pay-per-use model. On a gross level, one might say that the payment model for the Internet is closer to that of broadcast (or perhaps cable) television while the model for the Information SuperHighway is likely to be more like that of pay-per-view T.V.

Opportunities of Character Not Color
Opportunities of Character, Not Color Created in the 1960s, affirmative action programs attempted to undo past racial discrimination by giving preference to blacks and other minorities. The idea behind these programs was to help minorities gain the representation in the job market that paralleled their percentage of the population (Finley 1). Unfortunately, affirmative action has mutated into a thirty-year-old policy that places many underqualified minorities in positions over more qualified n

A UFO crashed near Roswell New Mexico in 1947. The report in the papers on July 8, 1947 would bring news to the world that aliens were real (Stacy 36). However, the U.S. government quickly quashed the story before it was widely spread. A cover story was released by the 8th Air Force; the wreckage was actually that of a downed weather balloon (Wyly). The press bought it, and the story has laid cold for 30 years. In the late 70's, several witnesses, who where tied to the incident, shared their ac

The experience lingers, demanding to be pondered and considered, and, unlike most of the modern-day thrillers, there is a great deal here to think about and argue over.

The premise of Affirmative Action: desegregation and equality for all through aid to minorities and women based on race and gender is rooted on a noble concept. However, since the 1960s and the Civil Rights era, this concept has lost its direction. Although created with the intention to enable minorities and women equal opportunities as their dominant (white male) counterparts, many Americans may feel that Affirmative Action is a regulatory structure to be dismantled more then a vision to b
