Serial killers have been active since the 15th century, yet we are still mesmerized by them. They have and will continue to shock and sicken us to the core of our being, yet they are treated as legends. We, the public, have a very perverse relationship with them and their evil deeds. Books and movies made regarding their atrocities make millions, yet they are still punished and some are put to death. Does this mean that there is a dark side to us all and we are using the active serial killers a...

When people associate racial background with America most people autom
When people associate racial background with America, most people automatically think of European ancestry. This misunderstanding of what America is, causes many problems in the country. The lack of recognition of various racial backgrounds and minority groups has been all too common, since the very beginning when America was thought of as a New World. The native people of the land were treated like they were foreigners and eventually stripped of their own land. When the country started to deve...

Mike 10-5-98 Block 4 Soph Mr. Coco Compare and Contrast Essay Over the years, it has been getting harder to find books with their own identity because so many of them start to blend together and look like each other.

These two stories are similar, but not the same. Both stories have some comparable charact...

The fact that Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird takes place around th
The fact that Harper Lee's, To Kill a Mockingbird, takes place around the mid-1900s sets up a realistic background for the racial events that occur in the story. Throughout the novel, there is a definite tension to be recognized among different classes and cultures of people. Since the main character, Scout Finch, has a father who is directly amidst this tension and aggression because of his profession, she is forced to accept reality and mature faster than may have otherwise been necessary.

Maya Angelou born as Marguerite Johnson was raised in a period of raci
Maya Angelou, born as Marguerite Johnson, was raised in a period of racial discrimination. In her early years, she experienced segregation of public areas and harassment from white people, which led to her lack of self-esteem. It was the isolated black community who helped her develop a semblance of inner strength and dignity. As Joanne Braxton views it, Angelou was considered unattractive by the standards of her community, [so she] developed her intellect instead. (86). Angelou also experien...

The Hittites
The Hittites So who exactly are the Hittites you ask? A group of people in the ancient Middle East obviously, but who are they? Who did they worship, and how did they get their food? The answers to the questions were untold until recently when the Hittites were finally recognized as one of the Great Powers of the Middle East much like the Egyptains or the Assyrians at the time. This established group of people created a kingdom in what we now know as Turkey and Syria. This big area of land was ...

On the surface the Anita Hill-Clarence Thomas hearings seemed to be re
On the surface, the Anita Hill-Clarence Thomas hearings seemed to be relatively simple, wherein a man who was a candidate for one of the country's most prestigious positions was challenged by a former co-worker claiming sexual misconduct. It seemed at first to be a story that the American public was somewhat familiar with: politicians and prestigious men have been linked several times before with charges involving sexual misconduct. However, when we get a closer look at the situation, America w...

Anorexia Nervosa
Anorexia Nervosa You may have never thought of it as being a disease, but it is. It can also be a very fatal one if not taken care of right away, in the right manner. Anorexia Nervosa is nothing to joke around about or even to overlook. This is an eating disorder that is most often caused by low self-esteem of a person's own identity. It is not always easy to determine if someone is anorexic, for they do have methods of covering up the symptoms of the disease. This is definitely not something t...

On November 27, 1942, Jimi Hendrix was born as John Allen Hendrix in Washington at Seattle General Hospital.

I met Sue and Chris last summer at a campground in the eastern panhandle of West Virginia. They appeared to be just two ordinary campers. It was after some casual conversation that I learned they had been living in the campground for the past two weeks. Park authorities had informed them their time was up and they would have to move somewhere else. Sue, a young lady in her late twenties, told me they had no place else to go. Chris, a young man in his early thirties, had lost his job, had no mon...

Tourette Syndrome A Misunderstood Disorder
Tourette Syndrome: A Misunderstood Disorder Tourette Syndrome (TS) is one of the most misunderstood neurological disorders.

A personal essay on 'BLADE RUNNER - The Director's Cut' A Ridley Scott film based on the novel by Philip K Dick 'Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?'

The film is multi-layered; thrilling and unsettling, part dark science fiction and detective film no...

The United States Supreme Court has, on many occasions, held up the fundamental right, guaranteed by the constitution, to marry and procreate.

In the past decade, courts have had a rising number of custody cases involving a homosexual parent. Typically, the homosexual parent does not get custody of the child because of some accepted soci...
