THE LOST WORLD by Michael Crichton This story takes place six years after the Jurassic Park disaster. The book starts out with Ian Malcom giving a speach on his theory of extinction at a place called the Santa Fe Institute. As he's talking, a tall man stands up. His name is Richard Levine. He's a paleontologist, and he is fairly wealthy. He interrupts Ian to tell him that he doesn't think dinosaurs are really extinct. He believes there's a lost world on an island somewhere off Costa Rica. I'm

When many people think of fishing they envision going down to a local
When many people think of fishing they envision going down to a local stream or lake and soaking a few worms. However there is a more exciting and often more productive method of fishing referred to as fly-fishing. Fly-fishing is much more of an art when opposed to spin casting. When fly fishing you are much closer to the underwater fauna, as you are often in the water with the fish. Aside from that you also pick which fish you will go after by locating him and floating a fly right under his no

The Disproof (and proof) of Everything Since the beginning of time, men (I'm speaking of the human race, this is not sexist in anyway because women are included in this too) have pondered our existence and purpose, as well as the nature of the world we live in. This is perhaps the single most time consuming thought we ever have for most people live their entire lifetimes without finding the answer or even coming close to one. I myself have pondered this question for most of my life, until recent

Despite his final words of comfort, his followers were devastated at his departure. His favorite disciple Ananda had his body cremated by his friends in Kusinagara. Ten neighboring rulers demanded that his relics and ashes be divided among them, but they could not agree on how to do it. The people of Kusinagara refused. The dispute threatened war, which seems absurd, considering the teachings of Buddha are based on peace. The crisis soon passed, however, when the relics were divided by a wise m

Searching for justice Finding misery By Christopher T. 2/27/98 ILS In the book The Crossing, by Cormac McCarthy, there is an abundance of tragedies that take place in a young man's life. All through the book Billy was searching for justice and a sense of satisfaction. We he was close to achieving, or actually did reach that feeling, it was torn away and replaced with a feeling of misery.

For the most part, this destruction has been done with out knowledge of the dangers to the health of every living creature on earth. Time is running out and immediate action must be taken.

A Lifelong Battle Growing up and striving to find one's true identity is a complicated task in itself, without the worries of prejudice and discrimination to add to it. In Battle Royal, Ralph Ellison presents a young black man and the confusion that fills his mind while trying to survive and succeed in a society where those who are white possess all the power, and those who are black have none. The young man in the story struggles with the correct way to live life as a black man: be submiss

CHAPTER 1 - In the opening paragraph, Huck introduces himself to us as the narrator of the story. He talks to us in a relaxed, matter-of-fact tone that makes him sound friendly, honest, and maybe a little less respectful than he should be. He does, after all, come close to calling Mark Twain a liar. Try to imagine Twain writing that paragraph, in which he has a fictional character accuse him of stretching the truth in an earlier book. Twain seems to be sharing a joke with you, the reader, but

The movement from neoclassicism to romanticism flourished in England and France in this period of time. Romantic writers used nature for their inspiration, idealized the distant past, and celebrated the individual. Their writings were against neoclassicism which thought society was more important then the individual. Romanticism started kind of like a fad would; when Lyric B

Sexism in the Bible? Introduction The claim is often made that the Bible is sexist and that Christianity demeans women and makes them into second class citizens. While I do agree that sexism exists in Christian churches and that portions of scripture have been used to perpetuate sexism, the Bible does not condone discrimination in any manner. Men have cited verses about submission of women to keep believing women in their place.” Get out your Bibles and let's see what the Bible really says about

Pollan’s father was a busy man, one who didn’t want to spend his free time landscaping. Pollen himself addresses the issue of why we even have lawns in the first place. Would a shrub not occupy that same space, requiring half the maintenance? I myself detest few things in this world more than mowing. Something about wasting a beautiful day,
